Latest Muslim Outrage

By Findalis
Monkey in the Middle

Just off the "outrage" over the film Innocence of Muslims, the Religion of PeaceReligion of Intolerance is now rioting over an offensive photograph on Facebook.
Extremist Muslim rioters torched Buddhist communities in southeastern Bangladesh Sunday over an “offensive” photo on Facebook.

The rioting was ignited over a photo uploaded to the social networking site by a Buddhist man from the area that allegedly defamed the Qur'an, according to district administrator Joinul Bari.

Some 25,000 Muslims stormed a Buddhist hamlet in Ramu, torching centuries-old temples.

Once ablaze, the mob swept into villages outside the town, chanting “Allah is Great!,” leaving a trail of devastating in its wake. One witness told a reporter that 11 wooden temples were looted and destroyed, including two that were 300 years old. Shops were similarly attacked. In all, 15 Buddhist villages were attacked, and more than 100 homes were looted and damaged.

Buddhists comprise less than one percent of the population in 90-percent Muslim Bangladesh, where the rest of the populace is Hindu. Most Buddhists live close to the border near the Buddhist-majority nation of Myanmar. Public gatherings have been banned to prevent further violence, Bari told reporters.

Extremist Muslim violence worldwide resulted in some 40 deaths barely a month ago when an obscure, amateur anti-Islam video produced in the United States raised the ire of followers after a trailer of the film was translated into Arabic and posted to the Internet. The trailer, which was broadcast on Egyptian television, led to worldwide violence. It was also used as the excuse for an Al Qaeda-linked terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that left a U.S. Ambassador and three American diplomats dead.

There is no end to Muslim outrage.  In fact this is a deliberately orchestrated action to force the West to remove their right of Free Speech.

There is only one outcome that can be done to stop these riots.  More pictures, more movies, more outrage.  Let these idiots riot all they want.  Our freedoms are too important to give up.  Let us offend these left overs from the Stone Age every day, hundreds of times a day.

Latest Update on Eric Allen Bell

Gary Fouse

Documentary filmmaker Eric Allen Bell, who has been wrongfully linked to the video, "The Innocence of Muslims", has received numerous death threats. As a result, he has been forced to go underground-in his own country. This is a disgusting turn of events.

Eric is going to need some funding to maintain his security. If you would like to help, go to

STATUS UPDATE:  I have been moved to a safe house while the FBI investigates numerous death threats against me,  3 Pakistani newspapers wrongfully published that I was "the filmmaker" behind "The Innocence of Muslims".  An Islamic terrorist organization has ordered my death, and a bounty has been placed on my head. This rumor, associating me with the film, was intentionally planted by those who wish to silence me, after I published several articles, naming names and making connections between certain mosques, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.  I will not be silenced.  I may be physically in hiding, but I will continue to write these articles, use radio, and any and all media to expose the truth about Political Islam and those who try to advance this brand of tyranny in America. 

"Defamation, er Incitement of Religions" is Knocking on Our Door

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Maggie's Notebook

Picture taken in New York City

Never mind that we have seen our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans brutally murdered. Never mind that our diplomatic missions in the Middle East (and Pakistan) have been attacked and our flag burned. In the eyes of the Islamic world, American leaders, and our own media, this is all America's fault. It is all because we-not they-are the intolerant ones because they continue to lay the blame on that stupid video. One of the unfortunate results of all this is the advancement of calls to criminalize any criticism of Islam. These voices, led by the 56-member Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), the largest voting bloc in the UN, seem to have found a friendly ally in Hillary Clinton, the Department of State, and, indeed, the administration.

Last night, there was a large gathering of Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan to protest against Islamophobia and the now-infamous video, "The Innocence of Muslims". It was reported by some sources beforehand that they would also call for such expressions to be made illegal. I am still trying to determine if any such calls were made.

Maggie's Notebook has an important piece updating us on the effort to strip Americans of their freedom of speech in the wake of this atrocity committed against us. From it, you can link to the December 2011 report issued by Hillary and her pals. The key word here is now "incitement" rather than "defamation". More on that distinction later.

My impression is that Mrs Clinton has been trying to hold her finger in the dike, so to speak, when it comes to maintaining freedom of speech. Her words definitely include protecting that freedom. Asst. Attorney General Thomas Perez, in his remarks, predictably,  painted the US as a place where prejudice and discrimination are the biggest problem and patted the DOJ on the back for fighting it-even though many of the examples were from  decades ago. He did not waste his time defending freedom of expression.


As for inserting the term, "incitement" in place of "defamation", this is not really much of a victory. In the US, the right of free speech stops when one incites a crime against another, for example, saying to a crowd, "Kill the (fill in the blank) and the crowd immediately proceeds to kill a fill in the blank.

But what about the case we are dealing with now? Someone says or publishes something that offends Muslims, and Muslims in another part of the world go out and commit mayhem. Incitement? Even if you say yes, think of the legal spaghetti we are inviting in this country. Put Christ in a jar of urine and nothing happens other than Christians complain because they are offended. Do the same with Muhammad and all Hell breaks loose. Discriminatory application of justice? What about those Friday prayers in the Middle East where some imam exhorts the crowd to "take action" against the infidels, and the audience rushes out and  kills a couple of infidels. Incitement? All day long (under our law at least), but who ever gets prosecuted for that in the Middle East?

And, in case you are not aware, the Justice Department has, indeed, taken video-maker Nakoula B. Nakoula into custody. He is now being held without bail on a probation violation for "using the Internet without permission" (a term of his probation). He has been labeled by the judge as a danger to society. The only one in danger is Nakoula.

Secretary Clinton may be trying to diplomatically tell the OIC that we are going to protect freedom of speech in the US while vigorously protecting the rights of religious minorities, but they are not going to be satisfied with that. They want any expression that criticizes Islam criminalized, and they using this latest controversy to advance that case even though it is we in the US who have been victimized. It is one thing to argue that Nakoula's video was offensive to Muslims (it was). It is another to prosecute him. Does anyone seriously think that had he made a film critical or satirical of Jews or Christians, he would be thrown back in jail for using the Internet in violation of his probation?

More importantly, in light of world events, are we eventually going to accede to demands that we shut down an honest discussion of the nature of Islamic terror, its own hatreds and sharia law as it would apply in the West? This need not be done in a spirit of hate or mockery, but who will draw the line and decide legally if it is hateful? Is it beyond the realm of imagination that those who speak out against the outrages occurring in the Islamic world, or question shariah law, or criticize an American Muslim leader for using hate speech himself  would be subject to having our taxes audited every year or be charged with spitting on the sidewalk?

Ask Nakoula B. Nakoula.

The Indoctrination at Northeastern University

Gary Fouse

Charles Jacobs and Americans for Peace and Tolerance have produced a 32-minute video that shows the indoctrination and anti-Semitism that has taken over classrooms at Boston's Northeastern University. This video is well worth watching. Some of the shots come from the school where I have taught part-time for 14 years, UC Irvine, which is also mentioned in the narration as a hotbed of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity. In addition, Norm Finkelstein, the oddball ex-professor mentioned in the video has also visited UCI at least three times. Twice I have seen him speak. That he should be trumpeted by a Northeastern professor is a joke.

This is not the first time Northeastern University has been written about on this site.

I can attest to what the video is saying. While I have not visited Northeastern, I have seen the same nonsense at UC Irvine. It is not just at Northeastern, or UCI or UC Berkeley. This is going on all over North America.

England: 21st Century child sex slaves

You have to question how many within the hierachy of 'officialdom' are from an immigrant background who helped enforce a code of silence over this whole affair?

A full and thorough public enquiry should tell everyone.

Daily Mail

For 20 years or more, there has been a shameful silence about the sexual exploitation of young girls in this country. Hundreds of children — some of them still at primary school — have been groomed by street gangs and turned into sex slaves.

And it is still going on today.

When I have written about this subject after investigations in towns and cities in the North of England, I have been reviled as a hater of our immigrant communities in abusive emails, letters and phone calls by those who continue to deny such things are going on.

For there is an uncomfortable truth about this abhorrent crime which we must not flinch from: the majority of girls ensnared by the street gangs are white, while most of the perpetrators come from the Pakistani and South Asian communities.

The Libya Attack: Who Knew What-When?

Gary Fouse

Who's on First?

                                   Ineptness or deliberate falsehood?

According to this latest report, apparently, the administration did, in fact, have information (and enough common sense) to know that the attack on the Benghazi consulate was a planned terror attack.

However, this now raises more questions. If the administration knew within 24 hours that it was a planned terror attack, why did they keep telling the public for a week that it was a spontaneous protest that got out of hand due to that infamous video? If there was a Top Secret strategic reason involved, that might be understandable, but to tell the American public a tale they knew was false requires some serious explanation. They could have always said for a week that it was still under investigation and withheld comment. Instead, it now appears that we were lied to. If not, it points to a seriously inept administration.

* No, I am not implying the replacement refs were dishonest. They weren't that bad.

Background history to Abu Hamza's deportation

Posted 9th June 2012

The real story behind the arrest and expected deportation to America of Abu Hamza one of the commanders of the Jihad against the West living and operating in the UK.

Reporting the truth: The secret is out 

1. Even before 9/11 I had started to take a keen interest in the activities of Abu Hamza, the imam of Finsbury Park mosque and his organisation Supporters of Shariah. Soon after 9/11 I started a sting ‘honey pot’ web-site called with the help of a friend based in America


3. The web-site published radical Islamic web links that led the user straight onto other terrorist sites. I used the pseudonym Pervez Khan to contact Abu Hamza, the notorious cleric of Finsbury Park mosque both by email and on the phone. I contacted the operators of other extremist web sites like the Kashmir Media Service and was soon placed on their press list. When the press statements arrived I would copy and paste them into an email and post onto to Abu Hamza at Finchley Park mosque. The idea behind my sting web site was to gain an insight at what the extremist Islamic world were plotting against the non Islamic world.

4. The sting was already making good progress as I had given the FBI access to the web-stats of my site (now offline). Abu Hamza's web master had placed a link from his Supporters of Shariah web-site to mine and I had given the passwords to an American diplomat in Mexico who forwarded the information to the New York office of the FBI. They monitored everyone who logged onto Islamic-news from Abu Hamza's web site.*/

5. What many people never knew at the time and still do not know is firstly the FBI requested the Anti Terrorist Squad in London to visit my home and get a written statement giving them permission to monitor my web site traffic; and secondly that James Ujamaa Abu Hamza's web-master was based in America. He was the first person to click on the link between the two sites after he placed it to check it was working. In doing so he revealed his I.P. address, which enabled the FBI to track him down and arrest him.

6. I produce as exhibit GJ 1 true copy of the statement that I had given to Anti-Terrorism branch for FBI.

The Threats Against Eric Allen Bell-in His Own Words

Gary Fouse

Documentary film maker Eric Allen Bell is currently in hiding as a result of being erroneously linked to the anti-Muslim video, The Innocence of Muhammad". In this posting, which I have linked, Bell describes what has happened to him in the past days since September 11. You can also read some of the threats he is receiving on Facebook.

Update on Eric Allen Bell

Gary Fouse

As I recently posted, a number of irresponsible voices have wrongfully connected documentary film maker Eric Allen Bell to the video, "The Innocence of Muslims". His Facebook page has been flooded with death threats from both the US and overseas. His name is being bandied about by the crazy clerics in Egypt and else where saying he (as well as the actual producers) must be punished for his "role in the film". (And I'm not talking about prosecution.) Islamic websites are spreading the falsehood that Bell was involved in the film. (Bell is an outspoken opponent of the Murfreesboro mosque project.) As  a result of all this, Bell has had to relocate.

One of the websites that is associating Bell with the actual film makers is The American

So here we have an American citizen (Bell), who has exercised his First Amendment rights in his own country, now under countless death threats. Of course, if the people who want him dead had any reason, it could pointed out that Bell had nothing to do with the film. The reality is, however, that the opportunistic Islamists are using the film to catch other fish in their net.

On February 26, 1993, a truck bomb was detonated below the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York, NY. The 1,336 lb (606 kg) urea nitrate–hydrogen gas enhanced device was intended to knock the North Tower (Tower One) into the South Tower (Tower Two), bringing both towers down and killing thousands of people. It failed to do so, but it did kill six people and injured more than a thousand. The attack was planned by a group of conspirators including Ramzi Yousef, Mahmud Abouhalima, Mohammad Salameh, Nidal A. Ayyad, Abdul Rahman Yasin and Ahmad Ajaj. They received financing from Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, Yousef's uncle. In March 1994, four men were convicted of carrying out the bombing: Abouhalima, Ajaj, Ayyad and Salameh. The charges included conspiracy, explosive destruction of property and interstate transportation of explosives. In November 1997, two more were convicted: Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the bombings, and Eyad Ismoil, who drove the truck carrying the bomb.

Today it has become known that the US State Department (Under the leadership of Huma Abedin.) is negotiating with Egypt to Free The Blind Sheik.
The U.S. State Department is currently in negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as “the Blind Sheikh,” for humanitarian and health reasons, a source close to the the Obama administration told The Blaze.

The negotiations are allegedly part of the ongoing discussions with the Egyptian government to resolve the crisis plaguing the Middle East, the source told The Blaze. Calls to the State Department for comment referred us to the Department of Justice, and nothing has been confirmed.

The Blind Sheikh is serving a life sentence in American prison for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. His release has been called one of the top priorities of the new Islamist administration in Egypt. Many have pinpointed the cause of last week‘s unrest in Egypt to be protests over the Blind Sheikh’s release– not an anti-Islam YouTube video.

Citing the handling of the current crisis in the Middle East, and how the administration’s explanation that an anti-Islamic video is to blame, Beck warned that the administration may be trying to initiate a “Bubba effect.”

“If this is true, and we believe it to be true,” he explained, “I believe this administration is trying to initiate a ‘Bubba effect.’ That is, the average person turning against the government, collectively…because no one trusts them.”

“No matter how bad a citizen may be behaving, the citizen’s reaction is worse in the Bubba effect. We have to be very careful America…because it’s going to get tougher from here on out.”

We have we heard the line before?:
For humanitarian and health reasons
Oh yes with Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed al-Megrahi.  The Mastermind behind the Lockerbie bombing.  It was sworn in court that he had 3 months at the most to live.  He died 3 years later.

Now this time the US government isn't even going to ask the victims if he should be released.  He will just do it.  That will stop the riots in Egypt.

How about we start to riot here in the US?  If he does.  There is no stopping this traitor is there?  Imagine what he will do if he gets another term?

Ask yourself this:  Can we afford another 4 years of an Obama Regime?

Film Maker Eric Allen Bell Receiving Countless Death Threats

Gary Fouse

Documentary film maker Eric Allen Bell, who has been active against the Murfreesboro mosque in Tennessee, is also being caught up in the furor of a video that is being used as an excuse for all the protests and mayhem in the Middle East.

Now that the video has gotten so much exposure, Bell, who had nothing to do with it in any way, is being associated with the video by people too stupid to know better. Bell reports that he is receiving at least one new death threat per hour.

This is intolerable. This is our country.

Video Maker Taken Into Custody by Feds and Lee Baca's Sheriffs

Gary Fouse

Sheriff Sharia

The alleged producer of now-notorious video that is being used by Middle Eastern rioters and our government and media as a convenient excuse for all the mayhem was taken into custody for questioning just after midnight this morning by LA Sheriff's deputies. The questioning is to be by federal probation officials since the man is on federal probation.

Let me be clear; this character, by most accounts, is no model citizen. It is reported that the terms of his probation prohibit any access to the Internet. Thus, he might be susceptible to having his probation revoked.

Robert Spencer has opined that if the man is put back in prison, no matter his record and the legal justification, he will become a "political prisoner" pure and simple. I find it hard to argue that point. Will this turn out to be more appeasement to the barbarians in the Middle East who are attacking our embassies?

It is also necessary to point out that the LA County Sheriff, whose deputies picked the man up is none other than Lee Baca, who is the biggest useful idiot in American law enforcement. Baca repeatedly makes public appearances with the likes of CAIR, and the other suspect Islamic organizations in Southern California. As previously reported, he has spoken at events with the likes of Muzammil Siddiqi promoting sharia law.

And now Baca's deputies seem to be actively enforcing sharia law in concert with Obama's Justice Department. What a coincidence.

MSNBC: Blame Romney

Gary Fouse

US Consulate Attack In Benghazi

Watching MSNBC today, Martin Bashir's theme on the events in Egypt and Libya is to blame Mitt Romney for his critical comments on the now-infamous State Department statement condemning the makers of some film in the US that mocked Mohammed and Islam. The point, according to Bashir, Jonathan Alter, and Dana Milbank of the Washington Post is that Romney was wrong to condemn  the (embassy) statement because it was released prior to the beginning of both protests. According to Bashir et al, Romney was disgracefully politicizing the tragedy. Bashir also had on his show the "Honorable" tax cheat Congressman Charlie Rangel, who blasted both Romney and Paul Ryan. Romney was also criticized for making his comment even before all the next-of-kin had been informed of the four deaths in Libya.

As for the latter point, both President Obama and Hillary Clinton made statements about the tragedy this morning when the identities of two of the victims had yet not been made public. Clinton, in her statement, said that next-of-kin notifications were still pending as to two of the victims. The names of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the other victim were released since their families had been notified.

Here is what Hot Air had to say on the State Department statement:

Commentary Magazine had this take:

So apparently, the Cairo embassy, knowing that a protest was in the works, put out the much-maligned statement in the form of a tweet. The State Department and the administration apparently stepped back from the statement, and later released a condemnation of the Cairo protest while affirming their condemnation of those who had "offended the feelings of Muslims" (referring to the film).

But Mitt Romney is the bad guy.

Meanwhile, Bashir made reference to Milbank's paper, the Washington Post's editorial blasting Romney:

Here is the portion of the Post editorial that Bashir highlighted:

"J.CHRISTOPHER STEVENS, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was a skilled and courageous diplomat who repeatedly placed himself at risk in order to support the cause of a democratic Libya. His death, along with those of three other Americans, during an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday is a tragedy that should prompt bipartisan support for renewed U.S. aid to Libyans who are struggling to stabilize the country. That it instead provoked a series of crude political attacks on President Obama by GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is a discredit to his campaign."

(Emphasis mine)

Bashir also showed President Obama at the State Department this morning with Secretary Clinton signing a condolence book and later the both of them appearing before reporters in the Rose Garden. What Bashir did not show was that after the morning events, Obama took off on Air Force One to Nevada and Colorado for campaign appearances. Here is the White House schedule for today.

"Anybody home?"

Obama arriving today in Las Vegas for a campaign appearance (Las Vegas Sun)

Maybe the president should start attending some intelligence briefings, which he has apparently missed this week.  (Hat tip Breitbart).

So as our bodies are en route home, another mob in front of the Cairo embassy as I write, Obama is once again on the campaign trail and missing intelligence briefings, and Mitt Romney is the bad guy according to MSNBC-the ones who are truly politicizing the incident.

Cairo Embassy Stormed and an American Killed in Cairo: We Blames the Copts

Gary Fouse

In addition to the riot in Cairo, our consulate in Benghazi, Libya has been stormed and burned. An American staff worker has been shot dead. Was this a "celebration" of 9-11? If not, it's one of the great coincidences in world history. The outraged Muslim world is blaming some obscure movie supposedly produced in the US which, of course, offends Muslims. What else is new?

It appears that this movie was produced by an Egyptian Coptic Christian living in the US. I don't know what is in the movie, and at this moment, I don't particularly care. What I know is that the Copts in Egypt have been and still are persecuted badly in Egypt by the Muslim majority. When I say persecuted, I am not talking about unfriendly blogs or restrictions on their dress; I am talking about murder, bombings and burnings of their churches, rape of their women, and forced conversions to Islam. Yet our pusillanimous State Department (the Cairo embassy) under Her Nibs, Hillary Clinton, issues this sorry statement:

The U.S. Embassy said that it "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims -- as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."
"Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy," the statement said. "We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."

That's right, State: Assign blame to the Copts, who will now suffer even more violence at the hands of the outraged savages. What we should be doing is offering asylum to every Copt in Egypt-to say nothing of the Baha'i in Iran.

What is happening in Egypt is making a mockery of President Obama (wherever he is on the campaign trail) and his great speech in Cairo in 2009. The only response from him today has been his snub of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. How timely is that?

As for Libya, isn't this the country we helped (somewhat) to overturn Ghaddafi not so long ago? Yes, I thought it was. There is your gratitude.

And yet, we still worry over what to do in Syria to stop the slaughter. Problem is we no longer know who is slaughtering whom. And you want to send in the troops to get killed a'la Mogadishu? Not me.

And Pakistan, our erstwhile ally in the war against al Qaeda and the Taliban? Don't make me go there. This is the country that sheltered Usama bin Laden in the safest place imaginable-the town where their main military training base was located.

It is time to admit the hard truth; the Islamic world hates our guts, and doesn't care how much money we send their way or how many of their peoples we liberate (Bosnia, Kosovo, Somalia, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Kuwait). It means nothing whatsoever. We are the Great Satan, the Infidels. It is high time we take them at their word and make the necessary conclusions. We don't belong there. It is time to start closing our embassies and bring our people home before we have the next diplomatic hostage crisis. Bring our people (and troops) home and let these crazy people stew in their own 7th century juices.

Today, on the 11th anniversary of 9-11, an American diplomat was murdered in an American consulate. It should be the last.

404 MP Co Army Reunion in Missouri

Gary Fouse

I just got back from my Army reunion in Missouri, and wanted to post some final thoughts on an inspirational week. Apparently, the photos I tried to post are not showing up, so I will have to work on them. It's something about transferring from my antiquated cell phone to my email to the blog. Now I have figured it out.

The last two days were spent in Branson, and we took a steamboat ride on Table Rock Lake, which featured dinner and a fabulous show. The star was Janice Martin, who sings beautifully and also does the same with the piano and violin. She is also a three-year Army veteran herself and used her rope climbing experience from the Army to play the violin while climbing and suspending from a rope.

Prior to the cruise, we held a memorial service for our 404 MP comrades who have passed on. I learned that one of my buddies from Erlangen is no longer with us. They played taps while we saluted.

Gathering for 404 MP Co. memorial

I have to say that the southwestern part of Missouri, where Branson is located, is a charming blend of the Midwest and the South.

The experience of our tour at Ft Leonard Wood's MP School was the highlight. We were all treated like visiting royalty and given a complete tour of their state of the art facility. Since our group consisted of over 50 vets and their wives, the post provided two buses to transport us. There are no words to describe how impressed we were with not only the hospitality of the MP School staff, but the professionalism and dedication they show. One thing that stands out is that virtually everyone we encountered sported a right shoulder patch which signifies a tour in a theater of war (Afghanistan and Iraq). They have all been there multiple times-a year at a stretch. We owe them so much. Think of the hardships for them and their families. In addition, they are facing massive cuts and reduction in force. Yet, we didn't hear one complaint. In the evening, we ate dinner on post with the MP School Commander, Brigadier General Inch and members of his staff, both officers and NCOs. You could not meet a better group of people. We could not help but come away with a sense of pride in our military, as well as our own modest service compared to theirs. (A few our our group were also Viet Nam vets.) We thanked them all for their service, and they thanked us for ours.

Wonder Of Wonders, Miracle Of Miracles

By Findalis
Monkey in the Middle

The Mullahs of Iran have executed thousands of their citizens for every conceivable excuse.  From being raped to the horror of being gay, once convicted of the crime, you would be executed.

Along comes a man, a Reverend of Christ, Yosef Nadarkhani, who preaches the words of Christ.  Words of love and peace.  Words the Mullahs recoil from.  And they throw him in prison, demanding he convert away from Christianity and embrace Islam.

For 3 years he said no.  He was sentenced to death.
Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who was originally sentenced to death in his native country for his Christian faith, was acquitted of apostasy charges and released from custody.

Nadarkhani, 32, was imprisoned for three years and waiting execution for refusing to renounce his Christian faith. His charges were lowered to evangelizing to Muslims, which carried a three-year sentence. He was released with time served, according to the American Center for Law and Justice, a Washington-based watchdog group that had been campaigning for the pastor's release.

"Today our sources in Iran reported that Pastor Youcef was acquitted of apostasy and released from prison. After languishing in prison for almost three years, he has been reunited with his family," Jordan Sekulow, executive director of ACLJ said in a statement to

"While we are working on confirming the exact details of his release, some sources report that the court alternatively convicted Pastor Youcef of evangelizing to Muslims, sentencing him to three years and granting him time served. Pastor Youcef’s story is an example of how the world can join together to ensure that justice is served and freedom preserved."

Nadarkhani was originally called to Saturday's hearing to answer to "charges brought against him," leading to speculation that the new charges from the Iranian Supreme Court could be for a security-based crime, a charge often handed down to cover-up prisoners being held and sentenced on faith-based charges.

"While we praise the release of Pastor Youcef, we must recognize that Iran felt obligated to save face among its people and continue its pattern of suppressing religious freedom with intimidation tactics," Tiffany Barrans, a legal director for ACLJ said to

"International attention to this matter saved this man's life, but we must not forget the human right of freedom of religion includes the right to freedom of expression."

Nadarkhani's attorney, who also has been jailed, maintained that the married father of two faced execution because he refused to renounce his religion. An Iranian diplomat told a United Nations panel earlier this year that Nadarkhani would not be executed.

According to Sharia law, an apostate has three days to recant. The pastor refused to do so and sources close to the matter say executions in Iran can happen at any time, often without notice. The court is reportedly seeking the opinion of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Islamic republic's spiritual leader and highest authority, according to AFP.

The ACLJ worked with the State Department to try to win Nadarkhani's freedom, and the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution earlier this year condemning his imprisonment and calling for his immediate release. Nearly 3 million people have voiced support for Nadarkhani on Twitter through the "Tweet for Youcef" campaign.

Why did the Mullahs of Iran blink?  They have never backed down before, they didn't need to back down now.  There is only one reason for this.  G-d.  For at every turn this modern day Daniel clung to his faith, clung to the promises G-d made to those who believe in him.  It wasn't the State Department, EU, or any Earthly person who freed this good man.  It was the prayers of billions of people and the Hand of G-d which freed him.

And it is a wondrous miracle to behold!

Missive To The Faithful

By Findalis  

Book of Obama Chapter 16

In the city of Charlotte, in the great state of North Carolina, He came to accept once again the nomination of the party of Donkeys.  The assembled multitude screamed about the War on Women the Republicans were waging.  They screamed about the babies that were being born and girls forced to carry them.  They screamed about the evil  corporations.  Then He assented to the stage.

I am entitled to your acclaim, your adoration.
I am your Messiah, your Anointed One.
I am your God.  The decider of life and death.

We are the Good Guys, the wearers of the White Hats.
They are the Bad Guys, the wearers of the Black Hats.
It is a choice of Good vs. Evil.

We must all work together.  In equality, everyone pulling their own weight.
We will take the wealth from the rich, spread it around and everyone will be rich.
We will bring peace to the world, I will force peace on the Middle East.
I will cut the line that will divide Jerusalem*, It will be a good thing.

I salute our military men and women.  You love Me greater than you love others.
I killed bin Ladin and other members of al Qaeda.  It was done by Myself and none other.
The wounded men and women of the military I visited are now all healed.

It is through My grace, My pleasure that this nation thrives.
I have brought this nation out of depression and into economic prosperity.
I will continue to do so as long as I am your Messiah, your God.

When I am returned to this office I will make the dream of the Alinsky come true.
The Marx, the Hegel will guide Me.  Lenin, Trotsky will be pleased with My work.
We will all be one with the Government, which all powers come from.

The assembled multitude cheered and screamed:
That's Our Messiah!
But it fell flat.  The magic of 4 years ago had gone away.
The people shook their heads,  "Do we really want to use Unicorn Farts and Pixie Dust?"
The speech given by Biden the Fool, the man with Foot-in-Mouth disease was a greater speech than the Anointed One's.   But Biden the Fool is not the man whom the Media exclaim the Messiah.

The confetti fell but no balloons.
The Anointed One, His wife and their girls waved to the crowd.
But the people of the land were not impressed.  They did not stir to his banner.
In the end, The Anointed One will be hard pressed to win in November.

*  The Democratic Platform proclaims Jerusalem the capital of Israel.  Barack Hussein Obama
claims the same.  The Department of State still refuses to name Israel's capital and now prefers to call it Tel Aviv.
