Intro to Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!

Edited by John R. Houk

December 21, 2015

 

Below is an email from the Elijah List of which I am a subscriber. Theologically I may not agree with everything the Elijah List stands for, yet I do agree with much. The Elijah List is a for profit Christian organization that is of the charismatic persuasion emphasizing the Prophetic Movement.

 

I realize a lot of Christians may have a problem with the Prophetic Movement but you really need to get over it if you are one those problematic Christians. The Elijah List believes in the basics of the Christian faith and that is good enough for me. Ergo, try and hold up on the ‘heresy’ comments that many will wish to share.

 

Publisher Steve Shultz has a little marketing intro to a Sarah Palin email for the Elijah List subscribers and that is what I am sharing with my blog readers.

Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!

 

By Gov. Sarah Palin

Dec 18, 2015

Elijah List

 

I'll be honest! I was super jazzed two years ago to learn that Governor Sarah Palin reads "The Elijah List" every day!

 

Back in 2013, we shared how she wrote: 

 

"The Elijah List has been a blessing to my family in many ways...Often God gives encouragement through an article that seems to be written just for situations we face at a specific time…The Elijah List team is working so hard to provide a modern forum that strives to 'strengthen, encourage, and comfort, the Body of Christ!" -Gov. Sarah Palin

 

Today, I'm happy to provide a "new article" that Gov. Palin has just sent me, written specifically for our Elijah List readers!

 

You're going to be super encouraged by it. I hope you'll check out her new Devotional book, "SWEET FREEDOM" which we carry...this is just hot off the press! Here's the link: www.elijahshopper.com/sweet-freedom-a-devotional-by-sarah-palin.

 

Also, one of Sarah Palin's favorite pieces of art (pictured below on her mantle) is a picture of Jesus, "cracking up" laughing, that she ordered from THE ELIJAH LIST by artist Jennifer Page. She took a photo of it so Elijah List readers could see it.

 

We've made sure there are plenty of these available for you when you order today...so you can get one for yourself and a friend!

 

I LOVE THAT PICTURE OF JESUS LAUGHING!!

 

Please keep Sarah Palin in your prayers and be sure to forward this article to your family and friends!

 

Enjoy!

Gov. Sarah Palin Writes To The Elijah List Family!"

Sarah Palin, Wasilla, Alaska

Dear Elijah List Family,

 

I don't necessarily like to be known as a "politician." When the descriptive noun is applied to me in national interviews I jokingly plea that the reporter not use the "p-word" around me. However, it comes with the territory when one has held office and remains involved with a passion for political and cultural reform. Having been there, and willingly remaining in the lion's den of politics, this politician can see clearly our nation is in a critical season of transition. For many, these are the most frightening days of their lives. Now more than ever our hope must be in the One True God. He is our only hope. He is our security. Not knowing what tomorrow holds, we must know who holds tomorrow.

 

Many in government and media try to convince us that God should not be in the political arena with us, invoking the concept of "separation of church and state." Don't be deceived into believing we can survive, much less thrive, without Him! Do you know where the phrase "separation of church and state" actually comes from? If you guessed the U.S. Constitution or our Declaration of Independence, you'd be wrong.

Thomas Jefferson referred to it in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, which had written him seeking help. Connecticut had established a state church – the Congregational Church, which meant the Baptists' religious freedom was not an inherent right, but a favor granted by the state. Jefferson wrote to the Baptists that he shared their belief in religious freedom and that under the First Amendment was enshrined "a wall of separation" between the federal government and the churches; the government was not allowed to interfere with religion, guidance he expected the states would follow in perpetuity.

 

Sweet Freedom book jacket

Today, it's hip to invoke "separation of church and state" to insinuate or even demand that the Church have no influence on government and no role in politics. That is exactly wrong. In fact, Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptists closes with an invocation of God and prayer. (Photo Sweet Freedom: A Devotional - by Sarah Palin via elijahshopper.com)

 

Another great American founder, General George Washington, commanded the Continental Army under a flag featuring an evergreen tree and the words "An Appeal to Heaven." Today, it is imperative that we continue in the tradition of our founders in appealing to Heaven for the survival of our country; not only our leaders, but as voters.

 

Every campaign season, voters face decisions based on many reports. It can be easy to feel fearful of the doom and gloom you hear from big dog media and popular pundits, but as Believers we can take comfort in knowing our God is bigger, stronger, wiser, and so much more merciful towards us than anything we hear in the news.

 

Use Caleb and Joshua as our example. They were men of faith, not fear. God directed Moses to send twelve spies to Canaan. Ten spies saw giants in the land and relayed fearful reports. They felt as small as grasshoppers and wanted to just hop away into oblivion. But Caleb and Joshua ignored the giants. With unrelenting trust, they went up at once and took possession, "for we are well able to overcome." They knew they were more than conquerors through our mighty God!

 

Friends, Caleb and Joshua 'r us! And it's time to take possession! Our examples didn't hesitate – we've hesitated long enough, America – we must "go up at once!" and stake claim of this land of the free. Ignore the media giants and consider how to help and whom God would have you support.

 

When I was chosen to run for Vice President of the United States, I prayed voters would see through the media haze to see who we, as candidates, really were. Maybe I didn't pray hard enough! Today, many Goliaths are in our nation's path. Just as He led Moses' men to see clearly, He'll give you the same confidence as you seek His direction, personally and politically. It's imperative we support godly, competent leaders.

Between 1933 and 1981, there was only one major presidential address that included the words "God bless America." But when Ronald Reagan kicked off his presidency by invoking God's blessing on our nation, he set a new standard. From his inauguration through President George W. Bush's final term, the phrase was used forty-nine times, and President Obama continued the practice. Our Presidents call out to God. Great! But we need some reciprocity. Our purpose is not just to be blessed by God, but to bless Him.

 

Our Founders sought the Lord when embarking on this grand experiment called America, knowing they needed Him if they were to break away from tyranny and to secure freedom.

 

For God's favor to remain, we must turn back to Him and not squander America's blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Today, thank God for blessing us. Remember Psalm 33:12"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance." Pray every heart turns to Him. Take action! Invite God back into this nation – His nation. Rededicate America back to Him.

 

And have fun doing it. Really! Do not fear and don't let your children fear. Remind them our Warrior King has the whole world in His hands and He wants us to be bold and joyful despite less than ideal circumstances.

Upon my fireplace hearth is a beautiful picture I ordered from the Elijah List. Artist Jennifer Page depicts the smiling Son of God as our happy Savior full of the vibrant life He freely offers us. In my living room, Jesus is cracking up! I want my family to look up and see He is the cup of overflowing laughter, carefree sweet freedom, and miraculous blessings we can drink from to nourish our homes and our nation if we'll all look up and believe Nehemiah 8:10"The joy of the Lord is your strength!" 

 

Merry, merry Christmas brothers and sisters!

NBT Films presents 'The Muslim Agenda', a movie which exposes the shocking truth about islam, it's incompatibility with western ideals and it's cult-like ideology. The contents of the film exposes the evil verses and teachings taken directly from the Quran and Hadiths and demonstrates it's sick doctrine of hate, gender inequality, intolerance of homosexuals, anti-semitism, racial discrimination and permission for muslim men to indulge in sex slavery, child rape and molestation. 

The Muslim Agenda also exposes other diabolical facet's [sic] of the faith, including islam's culture of psychological indoctrination, guilt complex, and mind control which is imposed on young impressionable muslim men to commit jihad. The final end game through acts of jihad, is a worldwide controlled caliphate whereby Sharia law is forced upon all mankind and subjugation of all non-muslims must take place. This is the ultimate desire of all devout muslims who remain faithful to the divisive and destructive religious tenets set by Muhammad, the prophet of islam.

Muslim Brotherhood NOT the Only U.S. Infiltrators

 

John R. Houk

© December 19, 2015

 

Have you ever heard the term “Civilization Jihad”? It is a reference to Muslim immigrating to Western nations and infiltrating the local culture slowly instituting the tenets of the theopolitical ideology called Islam. Another term is Stealth Jihad.

 

Counterjihad writers have been playing Jeremiah telling their nations that Civilization Jihad is a very real practice taking place in the West to subvert our society, culture and essentially our Liberty that in the USA is insured by the U.S. Constitution.

 

The term first reared its ugly face in a Muslim Brotherhood document aimed at using stealth to transform North America into an Islamic dominated area. Check out this excerpt:

 

 

Under shariah, civilization jihad – a “pre-violent” form of jihad – is considered an integral, even dominant element of jihad that is at least as obligatory for shariah’s adherents as the violent kind.

 

Such tactics are ostensibly “non-violent” (and therefore “moderate”) not because the Muslim Brotherhood eschews violence out of principle, but because it has decided that this phase of battlefield preparation is better accomplished through stealthy means. Hence civilization jihad can be considered “stealth jihad.”

 

Civilization jihad is a form of political and psychological warfare that includes multi-layered cultural subversion, the co-opting of senior leaders, influence operations, propaganda and other means of insinuating shariah gradually into Western societies.

 

 

Origins of civilization jihad

 

We get the concept of civilization jihad from, among other sources, a document that was entered into evidence in the 2008 United States v Holy Land Foundation terrorist finance trial. The document, titled An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group, was written in 1991 by Mohamed Akram, a senior Hamas leader in the United States and a member of the board of directors for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

 

The Explanatory Memorandum (click here for the original document in Arabic) explains that the Muslim Brotherhood-organized “Islamic Movement” in the US is a “settlement process” to establish itself in the United States and, once entrenched, to undertake a “grand jihad” characterized as a “civilization jihadist” mission under Muslim Brotherhood direction.

 

Specifically the document describes the “settlement process” as a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated.” READ ENTIRETY (‘Civilization Jihad’ – the Muslim Brotherhood’s Potent Weapon; ShariaTheThreat.org)

 

Also consider this excerpt:

 

Careful thought in this would go back to the first large amount of Muslims coming to America in 1962. Did they come for the purpose of jihad? This would account for the founders of the North American Muslim Brotherhood. It would also explain their usage of the term civilization jihad in 1991 when they defined their goals. It directs the Muslim migrant who came for jihad, on how to pursue that goal.

 

If Muslims coming here would have the purpose of jihad, you would expect them to:


 

  1. You would expect to find communities of Muslims starting to request sharia law.

 

  1. You would expect to find Muslims here coordinating new Muslims coming to the states into designatedareas for the furtherance of Islam and the declaration of sharia law.

 

  1. Attempt to infiltrate every level of government for the purpose of subverting the constitution. 

 

These things are happening today! 20,000 Syrian Muslims are slated to arrive in the USA between 2015 and 2016. Will America cease to be the land of the free and become dar al Islam (land of submission) if it does not wake up soon? 

We have to fight and make America wake up NOW! (al-Hijrah: The secret Islamic doctrine of Migration for Jihad; By Paul Sutliff; Paul Sutliff on Civilization Jihad; 3/30/15)

 

The Muslim Brotherhood is not the only transnational purist Islamic organization that has an agenda for North America. For this post I am highlighting a purist group that chances are that you never heard of or at least know very little about. That purist Muslim group is the Gulen Movement founded by and actually operating from the USA - Fethullah Gulen.

 

The Center for Security Policy (CSP) via their Secure Freedom project has put together a 90 page document that you can purchase via Kindle and paperback from Amazon or even better as a PDF for free.

Islamic Supremacism Does Business in U.S. Via a Turkish Cult:

Gulen Movement is an Engine for "Civilization Jihad"

(Washington, D.C.): It has become increasingly apparent that the United States is not only confronting a violent effort by Islamic supremacists to impose the program they call shariah on the rest of the world, Muslim and non-Muslim, alike.  Dangerous as jihadist terrorism is, America – and the rest of the Free World, for that matter – also face what amounts to a pre-violent assault.  

 

The Muslim Brotherhood calls this stealthy, seditious effort to “destroy us from within” a “civilization jihad.”  One of its prime practitioners in this country is the Gulen Movement, a cult/business empire led by a reclusive Turkish expatriate, Fethullah Gulen, who operates from within an armed camp in the Poconos.

For more information see: http://bit.ly/1ZfUZBb

 

This movement and its penetration of our country is the subject of an important new monograph published as part of the Center for Security Policy’s Civilization Jihad Reader Series: The Gulen Movement: Turkey’s Islamic Supremacist Cult and Its Contribution to Civilization Jihad in America. It is co-authored by two members of the Center’s senior leadership team: Vice President for Outreach Christopher Holton and Clare Lopez, Vice President for Research and Analysis.

 

As The Gulen Movement monograph makes clear, one of the most troubling aspects of this cult is its success in advancing the Islamic supremacist agenda – albeit under the guise of Turkish nationalism – via one of the fastest-growing networks of publicly funded charter schools in the United States.

 

Fethullah Gulen is wanted on multiple international arrest warrants issued by the regime of his one-time ally, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  Here in the United States, government investigators are also looking into numerous allegations against the Gulen Movement involving: indoctrination, influence operations, salary-kickback schemes, visa system abuse and more.  

 

In fact, the allegations against the Gulen Movement extend all the way to the U.S. Congress. In late October 2015, a USA Today investigation revealed that the Gulen Movement had illegally funded more than 200 trips to Turkey for Members of Congress since 2008.  It did so using false disclosure statements that concealed their Gulen sponsorship from both the legislators and the House Ethics Committee, which had been misled into approving member- and/or staff participation in the trips.

 

Thus, in spite of the Gulen Movement’s carefully projected image of harmony, interfaith dialogue, and tolerance, a far more troubling picture is beginning to emerge that the Center believes warrants a closer look. In praise of this new Center publication, Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney said:

 

In short, the Gulen Movement in Turkey, the United States, and worldwide promotes a far-more problematic program than its adherents would have us believe. It is not a benign cultural and educational institution, or even a billion-plus dollar commercial empire.  Rather, it is a prime practitioner of civilization jihad, enabling the spread of the Islamic supremacism’s shariah doctrine under the banner of a Turkey that aspires to renew its role as the Caliphate of the Ottoman empire’s glory days.  

 

U.S school districts, parents and students, federal, state and local governments, media organizations and academic institutions have clearly been successfully targeted by the Gulenists’ influence operations.  It is essential that we expose the true nature and civilization jihadist ambitions of Gulen’s taxpayer-subsidized educational empire and the favors its parent movement has deployed – notably, via all-expenses-paid trips to Turkey.  This monograph makes an important contribution to that end. 

 

The Center for Security Policy/Secure Freedom is proud to present this monograph as a superb addition to its Civilization Jihad Reader Series.  “The Gulen Movement: Turkey’s Islamic Supremacist Cult and Its Contribution to Civilization Jihad in America” is available for purchase in kindle and paperback format on Amazon.com.

Justin Smith has an essay that probably is better termed a prayer of intercession for America through the filter of the meaning of Christmas.

 

Christmas is a celebration of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. Something compels me to share from the Word of God about Christ’s birth and the forgiving and giving that follows the Lord’s birth:

 

Luke 2

 

10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

 

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”[a] (Luke 2: 10-14 NKJV)

 

John 1

 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

 

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

 

16 And[a] of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son,[b] who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. (John 1: 1-3, 14, 16-18 NKJV)

 

John 3

 

17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

 

18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” (John 3:17-21 NKJV)

 

Luke 6

 

27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise. (Luke 6: 27-31 NKJV)

 

Being a Christian is a continuous combination of seeking to ever increasing one’s right standing with God, forgiving wrongs, helping others, praying for the leaders of your nation (not just politicians) and sharing the same love of Christ that the Lord shared with the Redeemed with other non-Christians.

Christmas and Prayers for America

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 12/17/2015 11:48 AM

 

Christmas is upon us, and many of us, who know that the sacrifice of God's only Son on the Cross granted redemption and everlasting life to all people, are preparing for wonderful gifts to be given and received at joyous dinners and events with friends and family. We gather for the sake of fellowship and love, our hearts are cleansed and kindled by the warm fire of eternal goodness, and we give thanks for the birth of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, through our prayers.

 

On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and for all the days henceforth, let us pray that all Americans experience an epiphany and come to understand the true meaning of the birth of Jesus at Bethlehem. Let us also pray for Our Beloved America's salvation, as we recall that America's founding principles are Judeo-Christian -- the very same principles that embody "free choice," liberty, equality and reveal and affirm that each individual owns rights that are unalienable and granted to all by God.

 

On April 30th 1789, George Washington placed his hand on the Bible, opened to Genesis 49-50, and ended his oath to become the first President of the United States with the words, "So help me God." Many Americans joined Washington in prayer at the nearby St. Paul's Chapel that same day; the first act of the first Congress was to pray, as Washington and the members of Congress knelt together: To this day, Congress has always opened its sessions with prayer.

 

Throughout his administration, Thomas Jefferson and Christians of every denomination and sect, from Quakers and Unitarians to Catholics, regularly held Sunday prayer services in the House of Representatives. And Jefferson's own words from the Virginia Statute Establishing Religious Freedom (Jan. 16th 1786) state:

 

"Almighty God hath created the mind free, All attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens ... are a departure from the plan of the Holy Author of our religion."

 

America has never stood so close to the precipice and so near the eve of Her own destruction, at the hands of Her progressive oppressors, who deny the validity of the U.S. Constitution, U.S. sovereignty, life and even God through their despotic measures and edicts. America has never been so in need of prayers and God's protection.

 

In Matthew 18: 19-20, it is written:

 

"Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth ... any thing that they shall ask, it will be done for them of my Father ... in Heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

 

O' Lord I pray - We pray - that children sickened by numerous diseases, who are spending Christmas in St. Jude’s, the Shriner's and Vanderbilt's Children Hospitals and many other hospitals, are touched by Your healing Spirit and sent home to their worried and loving families whole and completely cured.

 

O' Lord We pray for the homeless and the hungry across our country, and yes we pray for the same all across the world, that they may be brought into the loving fold of a family somewhere or at least a place to call home. Make their stomachs full, we beseech You O' Lord, and let them know hunger no longer.

 

Please Lord, help America and Her people understand their crime and their sin that they commit by condoning abortion. It is unreasonable for anyone to deny Your Hand - a Divine Hand and a Power greater than anything in this universe - in all life, as the first spark emerges in the form of an embryo and journeys through the first heartbeat of the fetus, until a newborn baby boy or girl takes their first breath. We pray that You give all Americans full understanding regarding the sanctity of the unborn life.

 

In these troubled days, We pray for our progressive brethren, and we pray that You open the eyes of the atheists and the ACLU, who attempt to stop voluntary prayer across America, much like in Bremerton, WA and School 169 in New York, which also banned the 'Pledge of Allegiance'. We also pray that You place them under conviction, so they will come to You and learn to love You O' Lord; and then perhaps they will also grow to love America.

 

As We "preparest a table in the presence of [our] enemies", O' Lord, we pray that You redeem them just like Saul, and we ask that You guide the Muslims and their Ummah towards the complete reformation of Islam, as sought by reformers like Raif Badawi, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and Irshad Manji. We pray that Islam becomes a true "religion of peace" and stops its violent terror attacks against the West, or that the majority of Muslims convert to Christianity.

 

Bless all the men and women serving overseas in the U.S. Armed Forces, especially members who are fighting in the Middle East. Keep them safe on Christmas Day and many years after their safe homecoming.

 

Suffering through a sense of pain under Progressive Democrat policies, O' Lord, most of America prays and beseeches You to break the chains of our current despotic government. Please Lord, educate the large portion of society, blinded by progressive propaganda, on the evils of progressive policies and the failure and pain they inflict upon the people, and give us new leaders, who understand that special problems don't create special rights and privileges. Bring the end of days for this epidemic of fascism, and lead this generation of Americans in their refusal to sell their birthright -- their Unalienable Rights -- for a mess of bad progressive pottage.

 

With illuminations and the pealing of bells, We pray that our hearts are not troubled by the hourly seductions of sin, nor afraid of terrors imagined or real by which they are intimidated, as we become that one candle lighting the way for an innumerable quantity of others, with a love that sees in all men brothers. Do not let us shrink from the truth in word or deed, and give America's people salvation and the strength that lies in the peace, unattainable through diplomatic negotiations and dinners with heads of state and tyrants, found only through a voluntary profession of the truth by every man and every woman, that Jesus is Our Lord and Savior; and our sins are washed away by His Blood on the Cross. Amen-Amen-Amen

You will hear Multiculturalists, Muslim apologists and deceptive Muslims tricking a non-Muslim to convert to Islam way that Islam is peace. The pseudonymous writer Fjordman explains that Islam actually means submission. AND the followers of Islam are to use any means necessary – deception, violence and/or war – to get all the people of the world to submit to Islam either by keeping their religion (officially only the people of the Book; i.e. Jews and Christians) but submitting to the rules of Islam, convert to Islam or die for refusing submission to Islam.

 

Fjordman essentially posits that this very nature of submission means Islamic terrorism will be a permanent state of war (or terrorism) until total Islamization is achieved. Don’t be fooled by the propaganda of peace!

 

This was originally posted just after the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris, but the recent violence of the San Bernardino Massacre still applies and will undoubted apply wherever literal allegiance to the Muslim belief of perfection in the Quran and Mohammed exist.

On the evening of Friday November 13th 2015, Paris was shaken by a coordinated series of extremely brutal Islamic terror attacks that left at least 129 people dead and hundreds wounded. It is strongly suspected that the Jihadist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was behind these bloody attacks against multiple targets in the French capital.[1] This happened after the city had barely recovered from the Islamic massacre on the staff of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo some months earlier.

 

Jihad Attack in Paris 11/13/15

 

On October 31, 2015, a Russian passenger plane crashed over the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, killing 224 people. Russian and Western intelligence services have concluded that the crash was an act of terrorism caused by a bomb.[2] Jihadists associated with the Islamic State have claimed responsibility for this terror attack. If this is true, it means that militant Muslims from the Islamic State brutally murdered more than 350 Europeans in just two weeks.

 

Apologists claim that Islam is a religion of peace and that Islam means peace. This is not true. The Arabic word Islam means “submission,” not peace. A Muslim is a person who submits. Technically speaking, it is true that the terms Islam and Muslim are derived from the same three-letter root (s-l-m) as the word salaam. Salaam means peace, just as shalom does in the related Semitic language Hebrew. Yet that does not mean that Islam is peaceful. On the contrary, it indicates that peace is only possible after submission to Islamic rule and Islamic law. Peace is identical with submission to Islam. The absence of sharia law is the absence of peace. Islam is therefore essentially an ideology of eternal global war. It advocates the permanent incorporation of the non-Islamic Dar al-Harb, the “House of War,” into the Dar al-Islam, the “House of Islam” or “House of Submission.” The term “House of War” indicates that all areas under non-Islamic rule are viewed as a place of war until such areas cease to exist worldwide and submit to forces which are loyal to Allah and his Prophet. Some Islamic theologians use intermediate categories where Islam is making progress, yet does not yet reign supreme. However, the basic divide in Islamic theology is between the House of War and the House of Islam.

 

“It follows,” wrote the Islamic scholar Majid Khadduri, professor of the Middle East Studies Program at Johns Hopkins University, “that the existence of a dar-al-harb is ultimately outlawed under the Islamic jural order; that the dar al-Islam is permanently under jihad obligation until the dar al-harb is reduced to non-existence… The universality of Islam, in all its embracing creed, is imposed on the believers as a continuous process of warfare, psychological and political if not strictly military.”[3]

 

MB Logo with Hassan al Banna

Western audiences are perhaps familiar with the Muslim Brotherhood, a revivalist organization founded by Hassan al-Banna, which has included such individuals as the al-Qaida ideologue Sayyid Qutb and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State (ISIS). Abul Ala Maududi, founder of Pakistan’s Jamaat-e-Islami (Party of Islam), was also one of the most influential Islamic ideologues of the twentieth century. He explained that the objective of Jihad, Islamic Holy War, “is to eliminate the rule of an un-Islamic system and establish in its stead an Islamic system of state rule. Islam does not intend to confine this revolution to a single state or a few countries; the aim is to bring about a universal revolution.” Maududi emphasized that while Jihad involves armed combat, Jihadists include all those who help achieve the ultimate goal of worldwide Islamic domination. Not just those who fight in the battlefield, but also the millions behind them who contribute to the effort.[4]

 

The scholar Andrew Bostom and others have clearly proven that Islamic culture has never been “tolerant” in any meaningful sense of the word. This is a modern myth. Constant humiliations and occasional outbursts of deadly violence against non-Muslims have been a continuous feature of Islamic life for centuries, encouraged by Islamic religious scriptures. This is not a recent phenomenon, and it goes for both major branches of Islam. There are theological differences between Shias and Sunnis, but while these matter to Muslims themselves, they are of secondary importance to non-Muslims. Both Shia Islam and Sunni Islam encourage Jihad expansion, doctrines of Islamic supremacy and violent hatred of non-Muslims.

 

According to traditional Islamic history, the Treaty of Hudaybiyya was an agreement between Mohammad and his early Muslim followers in Medina, and the pre-Islamic pagan Quraysh tribe of Mecca. This is alleged to have taken place in the year 628 of our era. It affirmed a ten-year truce, a “hudna” or period of temporary calm. However, this truce was broken as soon as the Muslims felt that they were in a stronger position vis-à-vis their non-Muslim neighbors. A true and lasting peace on equal terms with non-Muslims is impossible, according to Islamic law. In the end, Islam can and should be globally triumphant. It is important to recall that the Sunna or personal example of Islam’s founder Mohammed and his early followers is intended to be valid for all times and all places. The Treaty of Hudaybiyya is therefore not merely of historical interest; it remains crucial for understanding how devout Muslims relate to non-Muslims today.

 

The traditional hadith literature of Sunni Muslims confirm Mohammad’s tactical formulation when waging Jihad: “War is deceit.” (Hadith Bukhari 4:269).[5] In addition to this, we encounter the Islamic doctrines of taqiyya and kitman (concealment and disguise). This allows for Muslims to lie and cheat to others, if this can be used to further Islam’s cause. Such tactics are employed by Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims alike.

 

Muslim Terrorist with Quran & Gun

 

Jihad is eternal. It entails a conflict that will never end, until the supremacy of Islam, Islamic rule and sharia laws have been established worldwide. Any agreement with non-Muslims is viewed as a hudna, similar to the Treaty of Hudaybiyya which Mohammed himself made with his non-Muslim opponents. Such a truce exists only so that Muslims can grow in strength and regain the upper hand. As soon as they feel they have the advantage, Muslims are encouraged to go on the offensive against the infidels again. As Andrew Bostom notes:

 

“In fact the consensus view of orthodox Islamic jurisprudence regarding jihad, since its formulation during the 8th and 9th centuries, through the current era, is that non-Muslims peacefully going about their lives—from the Khaybar farmers whom Muhammad ordered attacked in 628, to those sitting in the World Trade Center on 9/11/01 — are — muba’a, licit, in the Dar al Harb. As described by the great 20th century scholar of Islamic Law, Joseph Schacht, ‘A non-Muslim who is not protected by a treaty is called harbi, — ‘in a state of war’, — ‘enemy alien’; his life and property are completely unprotected by law…’ And these innocent non-combatants can be killed, and have always been killed, with impunity simply by virtue of being ‘harbis’ during endless razzias and or full scale jihad campaigns that have occurred continuously since the time of Muhammad, through the present. This is the crux of the specific institutionalized religio-political ideology, i.e., jihad, which makes Islamdom’s borders (and the further reaches of today’s jihadists) bloody, to paraphrase Samuel Huntington, across the globe.”[6]

 

Islam contains elements of a traditional religion, but also elements of a totalitarian belief system centered around a personality cult of Mohammad. Islam is a creed of war, not a religion of peace. In theory, this war will end when all human beings on Earth have submitted to Islamic rule and eventually become Muslims. In practice, experience show us that Muslim societies are far from peaceful. Muslims will continue to fight amongst themselves over who are the best and truest Muslims. Islam can with some justification be classified as a permanent world war, a war that has so far been raging for fourteen centuries and claimed countless lives.

Yair Lapid

 

 

John R. Houk

© December 17, 2015

 

Yair Lapid is the head of Israel’s political party Yesh Atid. Yesh Atid portrays itself as a centrist party which I’m guessing in Israeli terms means it adopts snippets from both Israel’s Left and Right that are closer to the center rather than the furthest outskirts of each side’s political spectrum.

 

In America I am a staunch Conservative Christian Right Israel supporting kind of guy. Thus I don’t really have a right to voice my opinion in which Israeli voters must essentially choose for the survival of the heritage of Jews and the Israel. On a political level I fell in love with Benjamin Netanyahu for taking a stand against President Barack Hussein Obama and his cadre of Left Wing Democrats by accepting the GOP invitation to address Congress.

 

Yair Lapid criticizes Netanyahu for this choice of alienating Obama. Indeed Lapid is bugged by a lot of Netanyahu’s Israeli policies that implies Netanyahu’s acceptance of a Two-State Solution but with the Palestine Authority recognizing Israel as a Jewish State as a non-starter with the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians.

 

My understanding Lapid essentially believes Israel should – putting it in the American vernacular – screw forcing Palestinians to accept Israel as a Jewish State. Rather Lapid believes Israel should make a concerted effort to normalize relations with Arab nations that at least nominally have the same National Interests as Israel; viz., the Saudi hatred of Shi’ite Iran, the Jordanian discord with ISIS (they would call the Islamic terrorists Daesh) and Egypt’s internal battle with the Muslim Brotherhood which Hamas is a spin-off. Those are just examples from the top of my head. There are probably more geopolitical areas Israel could focus in the Arab world to normalize relations. Lapid believes normalizing with the Arab world would then force the corrupt leaders of the Palestine Authority to accept a Two-State Solution to at least exist as a nation state and still be able to hate Jews.

 

The irony of Lapid’s current thoughts on a Palestinian State is that Israel needs to build a bigger wall so-to-speak and give Israeli Arabs a choice of accepting the Israel rule of law or be welcomed to leave. The part I am uncertain about is Lapid’s intentions of the Jewish settlements that have made communities in Judea-Samaria on the basis the land is a part of Jewish heritage. Does Lapid intend a forced evacuation of Jews as Sharon’s Israeli government did to Jewish communities in Gaza? Or does he advocate annexing the land the Jewish communities in Judea-Samaria already possess as part of Israel proper?

 

On a Biblical Christian Zionist level I do not like any Two-State Solution. The Biblical land of Israel is the Jewish heritage not the heritage of Muslim conquerors who came into existence roughly after 630 AD. There has been a Jewish presence in the land of milk and honey due to God Almighty’s Promise made to Abraham. History paints a story of the land possession promised to the Hebrew tribes beginning circa 1300 BC. There were no Arab people or nations in the land of Jewish heritage until Muslim conquest in the about 638 AD. Even though the majority of people in the Roman designated land of Palestina (English – Palestine) were Christians, there still was a remnant Jewish population even after Roman expulsion between 70 AD and 135 AD (See Also HERE and HERE).

 

The Islamization of Palestine occurred as a result of the Islamic conquest in 640. It was a long process that included immigration of Muslim Arabs, as well as other Muslims, from other regions, as well as conversion to Islam by some of the indigenous ChristianSamaritan and Jewish population of the area. Islam did not become the majority religion of Palestine until at least the 9th century and possibly even as late as the Mamluk era (1250–1516).[citation needed] This occurred simultaneously with acculturation of the locals into Arab identity and the establishment of Arabic as the lingua franca, which eventually became their sole vernacular.[2] (Islamization of Palestine; Wikipedia; this page was last modified on 6 November 2015, at 17:19.)

 

Islam is no multicultural friend of Jews or Christians. Islam demands unconditional submission or conversion. These Arabs that call themselves Palestinians following the doctrine of Mohammed will destroy Israel is given the chance.

 

Whether Netanyahu accepting a conditional Two-State Solution based on the acceptance of a Jewish State or a Lapid agenda of a Two-State Solution with complete separation between Israel and Arabs called Palestinians via fostering Arab nation friendship, is irrelevant. At least both Netanyahu and Lapid recognize who their enemy is.

 

Another enemy of Israel are idiotic Westerners that have bought into the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement against an Israel that has nothing but reclaim the land of their heritage. Israel calls the land Judea-Samaria. Appeasing Westerners call the land the West Bank – the name given by a 1948 occupying Jordanian army called the Arab Legion under the leadership of British Officers. Then there are the outright Israel-haters who call Judea-Samaria occupied territories by Israel’s military.

 

The BDS Movement is the height of Jew-hatred disguised as an agenda to liberate those poor Palestinians under Israeli despotism. OF COURSE that is a load of Muslim-Palestinian propaganda.

 

The post below was posted on the Facebook Community called Stop the JNF SA – Exposed and it is by Yair Lapid. It explains the truth that counters BDS lies. Incidentally “JNF SA” stands for Jewish National Fund South Africa. The Facebook community is dedicating to exposing the anti-JNF organization called “Stop the JNF SA.” The Stop the JNF SA organization is actually a Palestinian front organization dedicated to using propaganda to undermine the Jewish State of Israel. The “Stop” organization accuses the JNF of racism and ethnic cleansing of Arabs calling themselves Palestinian. It’s a load of propaganda crap. The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) exposes the “Stop” organization as really a bunch of Jew-hater Green Agenda coalition of Muslims of Leftist Jews that are against Israel.

HOW TO FIGHT THE BDS LIES


By: The Yesh Atid party

INTRODUCTION BY MK YAIR LAPID


The State of Israel needs you. We are at war.

 

The BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) spreads an unbelievable amount of lies about us, fabricated pictures and fictional witness accounts. The goal is to smear Israel’s name in the world, to isolate us, to turn us into a hated and illegitimate state.

 

We cannot abandon this field.

 

Not everyone is an anti-Semite, not everyone is against us; we just need to explain our side of the story.

 

If we manage this struggle with determination and wisdom, we can win. But we all need to mobilize.

 

We are Israelis. And when our house is under attack, we stand ready to defend it. It’s in our genes. There is no right or left in this. When facing the outside world, we are united.

 

You are preparing to travel abroad.

 

We have prepared a small booklet for you. For every lie that is being spread, we have written the truth. We haven’t invented a thing, all the information is based on facts. With this booklet, you will be able to respond to every claim and push back against the incitement.

 

In this war – we are all emissaries – Shlichim.

Travel safely, come home safely.
________________________________________________

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: Members of BDS are human rights and peace activists


OUR TRUTH: BDS is an anti-Semitic movement, founded by global Jihadi organizations. Its activity has been recognized as an anti-Semitic hate crime in France and the United States. Those standing behind BDS have discreet connections with Hamas, whose charter calls for the annihilation of the Jews no less than 12 times.

 
Despite the attempt to portray the movement as non-violent, the BDS movement has never condemned violence directed against Israelis or Jews.

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: The occupation is the root cause of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

 
OUR TRUTH: The conflict and Palestinian acts of terror against Jews in Israel started a long time before Israel took control of the territories. Already in the 1940’s, the Palestinian leadership cooperated with the Nazis against the Jews and acts of terror against Israel started long before the territories were conquered in 1967.


If the territories were the problem, how do they explain the fact that in 2005 Israel pulled out of the Gaza Strip to the last meter, and since that time, some 20,000 rockets have rained down upon the Israeli civilian population?

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: The Jewish People have no rights to a state in the land of Israel

 
OUR TRUTH: Our historic and national right to the State of Israel is based on a connection going back 3,000 years. This right was recognized by the UN General Assembly on the 29 of November, 1947.


In the world there are 130 countries with a Christian majority, 49 countries with a Muslim majority, three with a Hindu majority and only one Jewish State on a territory that represents 1/800 of the size of the entire Arab world.

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel doesn’t recognize the rights of the Palestinians to a state and isn’t interested in resolving the conflict

 
OUR TRUTH: Since the 1930’s the Palestinians have rejected no less than 5 proposals for a territorial compromise. Already in 1947 the Jewish leadership recognized the right of the Arabs to an independent state alongside Israel. The Arab side rejected the proposal and started a war. Twice – in 2000 and 2008 – Israel offered more than 90% of the territory for them to establish a state, and they refused.

 
In 2005, Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip and left 3,000 greenhouses behind that had been under Jewish ownership. Instead of giving them to the Gazans, Hamas destroyed these greenhouses and invested hundreds of millions of dollars from the aid sent to them from around the world to build tens of terror tunnels and launching sites for missiles that were designed to carry out terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians.

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel is exploiting the Palestinian economy

 
OUR TRUTH: The Palestinian economy is in a slowdown due to corruption in the Palestinian Authority. There are numerous examples of this, including a report by the European Union that determined that corruption in the Palestinian economy led to the loss of some 2 billion Euros in aid between 2008 and 2012. One example among many: documents that were leaked by the Palestinian Authority proved that corruption still exists. In the summer of 2015, a document was leaked that proved that Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor asked the foreign minister of Bahrain for 4 million dollars to fund a private housing complex for people in the Palestinian Authority.

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel is a racist state 


OUR TRUTH: The State of Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and all of its citizens – Jews, Muslims and Christians – enjoy equal rights.

 
The party that represents Israeli Arabs is the third largest in the Knesset, and is a considerable political force. Israeli law requires a just representation of Israeli Arabs in senior positions in the public sector. Israeli Arabs hold public posts in various government offices, as lawmakers in the Knesset, as officers in the IDF and as judges, including in the Supreme Court.

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: Israel is an apartheid country with a separation fence


OUR TRUTH: The security fence does not create separation based on ethnicity or religion, rather it is meant only to prevent terrorists from entering Israel. It is an existential need and every country would act the same to protect its citizens, in every sector. Its purpose is only security related.


A year after the fence was built, there was a 30% reduction in the number of terrorist attacks and the number of Israelis killed was reduced by 90%. On the day that Palestinian terror ceases, the fence will come down.

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: The movement aims to establish a Palestinian state alongside that of the State of Israel

 
OUR TRUTH: The BDS movement doesn’t recognize the right of the State of Israel to exist.

 
The boycott movement talks about one state between the Jordan and the Sea – a code name for the disappearance of all the Jews from Israel and not just from the West Bank.


Omar Barghouti, one of the movement’s founders, said: “The idea of two states was void from the start. The ending of Israeli control in the territories is but the first stage on the road to fulfilling the vision of the dismantling of Israel.” (Barghouti is an Israeli Arab who lives in Acre, who benefits from all that Israel has to offer. The fact that he walks around freely points to the power of the only democracy in the Middle East.)


The BDS movement is not interested in a Palestinian State alongside Israel, rather it negates the very existence of Israel. It hides this from its naïve supporters in the West.

 

BDS PROPAGANDA: The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the root cause of the problem of terror around the world

 
OUR TRUTH: Since the establishment of the State of Israel, 67 years ago, 12 million Muslims have already been killed around the Arab world by other Muslims in the framework of religious conflicts that have nothing to do with Israel. The attempt to blame the Jews is a new form of old anti-Semitism in which the Jews are blamed for everything. A solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is desirable, and most Israelis support it, but it won’t solve the Sunni-Shia conflict, it won’t destroy ISIS, it won’t stop Iran from funding terror. The attempt to blame Israel for terror just gives excuses to the terrorists and helps promote terrorism.

We can bring awareness to more people regarding anti-Zionist organizations in South Africa which are run by Jews and backed by Israel bashers. They are spreading the hatred of Israelis and therefore the hatred of Jews, anti-Semitism. Most, if not all of the anti-Zionist organizations and campaigns out there contain undertones of anti-Semitism but they claim it is purely anti-Zionism. Either way to be anti-Zionist is to be anti-Semitic as Zionism is related to Judaism.

Intro to Sarah Palin Thoughts

 

Edited by John R. Houk

12/15/15

 

I’m one of those guys that likes what Donald Trump says, yet at the same being very uncertain if he is the right guy to be the next President to reverse the curse of Obama on the United States of America. Currently I’m a Ted Cruz kind-of-guy. Let’s see how some Primaries and Caucuses turn out before we get committed to a particular candidate.

 

Saying all that, I like what Sarah Palin is saying about profiling Muslims for better security in the USA, which is something she has in agreement with Donald Trump.

A Message From Sarah

Did you see what Governor Palin said? It has many on the left on the attack because they can’t handle the cold hard truth!

 

Herd mentality running rampant with hypocritical and/or naive pundits trying to crush Donald Trump because he’s committed to clobbering the bad guys, and putting the good guys first. Trump’s temporary ban proposal is in the context of doing all we can to force the Feds to acknowledge their lack of strategy to deal with terrorism.

 

I said it back in 2009 and got beat up by the Left but understood by the common sense Right, and I’ll say it again: if it saves innocent lives, “profile away!”

 

When information shows someone comes to America after being in a radical Islamic stronghold, and embraces the Death Cult’s ideology that mandates butchering the innocent – then we are right in calling for shucking the political correctness that is fundamentally transforming America, and finally putting the security of innocent Americans FIRST. Slow this down via Fed intervention (it’s the Federal Government’s first and foremost job – national security!) until and unless we have a plan in place to sufficiently vet, AND to utterly and completely destroy the terrorists. (Note to President: start with letting our United States Military, the greatest and most ethical military power on earth, do its job.)

 

Ignore the White House as it spews talking point rhetoric accusing Trump (thus suggesting all who question their wrongheadedness) of being “unamerican.” Yet it is their leader declaring his need to “fundamentally transform America” because he so wrongly sees our exceptional nation’s foundation as fatally flawed. Now THAT is unamerican.

When reading about life in the old Soviet Union one of the abhorrent facts of life was the encouragement of the Soviet government to their citizens to report any person and/or any family that was acting in an un-Communistic or anti-Soviet State manner. Many a good non-violent person or persons found themselves in a Siberian gulag or worse – executed – by this policy of squealing on your neighbor or family member.

 

In America – right here, right now – we are facing a time when Muslims that believe that Mohammed was the world’s purest man and best example of living are trying to imitate Mo’s actions because of purest thinking connected to Islam. I say “Islam” rather than radical Islam because the so-called majority of Islam called peaceful and moderate do not actually follow the entirety of their theopolitical ideology. And trust me – if Islam overtakes an indigenous Western culture to become the majority culture, YOU will witness the same experiences that Muslims now experience in Muslim majority nations. That experience is to be made to feel less than human in comparison to Islamic Supremacism meaning ANYTHING the local Muslim religious cleric defines as insulting, demeaning or un-Islamic will undoubtedly raise the ire of the local Muslim community to persecute, raid of property, kidnapping or raping of non-Muslim girls and women, just plain execute the non-Muslim in a horrendous torturous manner.

 

LOOK AT the persecution of Christians, Jews, Muslim sects labeled as heretical by Sunnis or Shias, Bahais, Buddhist or whatever non-Muslim religious creed followed in this day and this age.

 

So here we are in America in which civil and religious rights are guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution - including Islam.

 

BUT the very essence of Islam demands its adherents that the civil and religious rights of the U.S. Constitution are inferior to the tenets of Islam and the prescribed actions of Islam’s Sharia Law. So how do good Americans who honor their Constitution and coincide this respect of the Law of the Land with the adherents of a religious belief that mandates the overthrow of the Constitution and replaced by Sharia Law?

 

My thought is to participate with ACT for America’s grassroots advocacy of hash-tagging the term ‘Open Eyes Save Lives’ and start reporting the suspicious behavior of Muslims that openly or in stealth imply the violent overthrow of the U.S. Constitution to occur and be replaced by Islamic Sharia Law. Muslims that advocate this kind of Mohammed-style purest ideology will participate in some kind of violence against a non-Muslim (or a Muslim that stands with the Constitution) to be slain to strike terror with the purpose of submitting to the superiority of all things Islam.

 

I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” (Quran 8:12 quoted from: Discover the Truth; 9/29/14)

Awareness Alert: Open Eyes Save Lives

 

Sent by ACT for America

Thank you for signing up to receive updates on our #OpenEyesSaveLives campaign! This is the first Alert of your new campaign and we hope that it, and further information we’ll provide, will be helpful to you.

 

The recent jihadist attack in San Bernardino was another clear wake-up call that the Islamist terror threat has long ago crossed the oceans and landed here in the U.S. Our leaders can no longer spin today’s terrorist attacks as something that is happening “over there.” U.S. law enforcement has been clear: they will not always be able to protect us from terror attacks, especially when jihadists are crossing our borders with such ease, and living amongst us as friends and neighbors. American citizens must help law enforcement by being extra eyes and ears for them — and we must never be afraid to report something seen as suspicious.

 

Remember: One next door neighbor in San Bernardino, California could have saved 14 lives by speaking out when confronted by unusual and suspicious activity in and around the home of Tashfeen Malik and Syed Farook. But political correctness caused that individual to remain silent. The result was devastating.

 

That is why ACT for America, the nation’s largest national security-focused grassroots advocacy organization, has unveiled our #OpenEyesSaveLives campaign.

 

It is imperative that we stay alert and understand what to actually look for as we continue to witness many horrific events transpiring before our very eyes. This is where you come in. YOU can be the eyes and ears within your community. YOU can educate yourself and those around you on what to look for.

 

Remember: If you see any suspicious activity that is alarming, please call 911 or use the “See Something, Send Something” app from the Department of Homeland Security for reporting details to law enforcement.

 

In this #OpenEyesSaveLives issue, we wanted to focus on some traits that may be an indication of radicalization, as noted by experts in the national security arena—important information to know.

 

Possible Radicalization Traits

 

  • The individual starts to grow a beard, stops listening to music, stops smoking and drinking (if they previously did these before), and begins to dress in Islamic clothing rather than Western clothing.

 

  • Abruptly abandons friends and family members.

 

  • Stops participating in activities that used to occupy much of their time such as sports or community associations.

 

  • Exhibits growing hatred and intolerance towards others who don't adhere to their beliefs.

 

  • Turns his/her back on life as it was before radicalization.

 

  • Surfing of violent jihadi/anti-government websites takes up increasingly large chunks of the day (12-16 hours).

 

  • Develops obsessive patterns of behavior and pines for martyrdom and the apocalypse.

 

  • Begins talking about known radical groups such as ISIS in a more positive light when he/she may have felt a different way in the past.

 

  • Another important trait is when the individual actually used to be very devout, had a beard, wore Islamic clothing, and has now started to smoke and drink when he/she previously did not. This is another way that terrorist groups are evolving to radicalize Americans. They want them to fit in more with western civilization and be accepted.

 

  • The individual changes his/her Islamic name to a more western accepted name.

 

  • As mentioned by radical teachings, in order to better fit in with western society, an individual should not make it obvious he is a practicing Muslim nor grow a beard if he has not yet grown one for it will bring unwanted attention. If he has grown his beard out, he is advised not to shave the beard completely because that would cause suspicion from friends and family.

 

“Don't make it too obvious you have become a practicing Muslim. For example: If you haven't grown a beard, don't grow it now, because you will bring unwanted attention onto yourself. Mujahideen in Muslim lands remove their beards for deceptive purposes." In addition, "Practicing Muslims" are instructed "not remove their beard if they already have one. This would only draw unwanted attention to yourself from friends and family, and this will in turn lead them to spy on you.” – one ISIS training manual

 

Every jihadist who has come to the attention of the authorities has exhibited several, if not all, of these traits. However, not every individual who demonstrates some of them has necessarily become fully radicalized to violence.

 

Here are a few more national security tips on what to look for, as well as a few important reminders:

 

Unusual clothing in a particular setting


If you live in a warm state such as Florida or Arizona and see someone dressed in an overcoat or unusual clothing for the season and the place, they may be hiding or packing explosives or a suicide belt. Report anyone appearing unusual to the authorities immediately.

 

Backpacks, bags, and luggage left unattended


Be aware if a person strategically places and leaves a bag. It's the holiday season where shopping malls and centers are packed with people. If you see any bag or backpack left unattended in any place, notify the authorities immediately.

 

Unusual activity in or around your neighborhood (you know best!)


The signs you heard about in the news in connection with the San Bernardino attack is the perfect example.

 

Surveillance behaviors


Take note of a person taking pictures or recording of a building’s side doors, loading dock, cameras and back alley. This includes any sporting event, concert, stadium or arena.

 

Always trust your instincts


We cannot emphasize this point enough. Better safe than sorry. If you strongly feel uncomfortable about a situation or a person, please do not hesitate to call the authorities and bring it to their attention. This is critical.

 

You can send information to authorities anonymously.

Intro to Glick’s ‘Answering John Kerry’

Edited by John R. Houk

12/13/15

 

Caroline Glick posted an essay about John Kerry’s speech at the Brooking Institute’s Saban Forum. This is the same forum that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu video streamed a speech to the Saban Forum from Jerusalem. To comprehend just how idiotic Secretary of State John Kerry is (and by extension President Barack Hussein Obama), let me share some excerpts from Netanyahu’s speech that addresses Islamic terrorism internationally and the terrorism of Arabs calling themselves Palestinians who refuse to accept the existence of the Jewish State of Israel:

 

I want to thank my friend Haim for giving me the opportunity to address you. This comes at a time when the United States has experienced a terrible and savage attack in San Bernardino, and I wish to offer the condolences of the people of Israel to the families, the aggrieved families, and of course send our wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded. [Blog Editor: a sentiment rarely shared from Obama and Kerry to Israeli-Jewish victims of Palestinian Islamic terrorism.]

 

 

And these values are what makes the bond between Israel and the United States, the American people and the people of Israel, so strong. It's that identity of values, those very values that are under such fierce attack today. …

 

 

Insofar as the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is concerned, I think there is another misunderstanding. People have long said that the core of this conflict is the acquisition of territories by Israel in the 1967 War. That's an issue that needs to be addressed in any peace process, as is the question of settlements, but it's not the core of the conflict. In Gaza, nothing changed. In fact, instead of getting peace, we gave territory and got 15,000 rockets on our heads. We took out all the settlements; we disinterred people from their graves; and did we get peace? No. We got the worst terror possible.

 

…  Why has this conflict not been resolved for a hundred years? Why has it not been resolved after successive Israeli prime ministers, six in fact after the Oslo Agreement, have offered to make peace, have offered the Palestinians the possibility of building a state next to Israel – it's because the Palestinians have not yet been willing to cross that conceptual bridge, that emotional bridge, of giving up the dream not of a state next to Israel, but a state instead of Israel.

 

And that's why they persistently refuse – not only Hamas in Gaza, but the PA – they consistently refuse to accept that in a final peace settlement, they will recognize the Jewish state, they will recognize a nation-state for the Jewish people. They ask that we recognize a nation-state for the Palestinian people, but refuse to accord that same right to us. I have said and I continue to say it, that ultimately the only workable solution is not a unitary state, but a demilitarized Palestinian state that recognizes the Jewish state. That's the solution. But the Palestinians have to recognize the Jewish state and they persistently refuse to do so. They refuse to recognize a nation-state for the Jewish people in any boundary. That was and remains the core of the conflict. Not this or that gesture or the absence of this or that gesture, but the inability or unwillingness of the Palestinian leadership to make the leap.

 

You got a hint of that the other day when Abu Mazen spoke about the "occupation of Palestinian lands for the last 67 years". Did you hear that? Occupation of Palestinian lands? For the last 67 years? Sixty-seven years ago was 1948. That's when the State of Israel was established. Does Abu Mazen mean that Tel Aviv is occupied Palestinian territory? Of Haifa? Or Beer Sheba? He refuses to fess up to his people and say it's over, from their point of view what they say are the borders they wish, the final borders they wish. They refuse to recognize that they will have no more claim on the territory of the Jewish state, that they will not try in any way to flood it with the descendants of refugees. After all, we in Israel took in an equal and even larger number of Jewish refugees from Arab lands. You should READ the ENTIRE Speech (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Remarks to the Saban Forum; By PM Benjamin Netanyahu; Release by Israel GPO posted at SlantRight 2.0; posted 12/7/15)

 

 Now as you read Glick’s essay you will notice that Secretary Kerry acts like he is completely deaf and blind about the intentions of the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians to not only establish a state out of some territory of Jewish heritage but also the complete destruction of Israel to be replaced by an Arab State. In case you haven’t been paying attention to what ISIS is doing to the Christians that have lived in Syria and Iraq that means a brutal genocide against the Jews of Israel.

Answering John Kerry

 

By Caroline Glick

December 11th, 2015

CarolineGlick.com

 

 

On Saturday, US Secretary of State John Kerry gave a speech before the Brookings Institute’s Saban Forum. Kerry focused on the Palestinian conflict with Israel and sought to draw a distinction between the two-state policy model, which he supports, and the one-state policy model, which he rejects.

 

To justify his rejection of a policy based on Israeli sovereignty over areas beyond the 1949 armistice lines, Kerry raised a series of questions about what a one-state policy would look like.


I answered all of his questions, as well as many others, in great detail in my book The Israeli Solution: A One- State Plan for Peace in the Middle East. I will do so again here, albeit with the requisite brevity.

 

But before discussing the specific questions Kerry raised with regard to the one-state model, it is important to discuss the nature of the policies Kerry described in his speech.

 

Kerry argued Israel should deny civil and property rights to Jews beyond the 1949 armistice lines, and ignore the building and planning laws of both Israel and the military government in Judea and Samaria in order to allow unrestricted Arab construction in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

 
Such steps, he argued, will advance the cause of peace because they will pave the way for an Israeli withdrawal from the vast majority of these areas. Such a withdrawal in turn will bring about the desired two-state solution.

 
Since the two-state solution is supported by the whole world, Kerry argued that once Israel withdraws from the areas, it will gain the support of the world, peace with its Arab neighbors as well as the Palestinians, and become more prosperous and happy than it is today. It will also secure its democracy.

 
On the other hand, Kerry argued, if Israel respects the civil and property rights of Jews and continues to enforce the law toward Arabs as well as Jews, and if it eventually applies its laws to any or all of Judea and Samaria, Israel will enter a state of perpetual war with the Palestinians and the wider Arab world. Israel will cease to be a democracy. Israel will be impoverished.

 
Israel will be isolated internationally even more than it is today.

 

If Kerry’s options were real options, then Israel would have a clear and easy choice, just as he argues it has.

 

But unfortunately, they aren’t real options. They are fantasies.

 

Today Israel has three options. As Kerry advocates, it can withdraw from Judea and Samaria and partition Jerusalem. But if it does so, there is no reason to believe that the outcome will be a Palestinian state, let alone peace.

 

Rather, it is far more likely that an Israeli withdrawal will lead to the establishment of a second independent Palestinian enclave that the Palestinians and the international community will insist is still under occupation, just as the Palestinians and the international community insist that Gaza remains under Israeli occupation 10 years after Israel vacated the Gaza Strip entirely.

 

Without Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, Israel will become a strategic basket case in an increasingly chaotic region. It will invite aggression from the Palestinians and from the east that it will be hard pressed to defend against.

 

Just as Israel is condemned for every action it has taken to defend against Palestinian aggression from Gaza, so it will be condemned for the actions it will be forced to take to defend itself from Palestinian aggression in Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem and beyond.

 

In other words, the so-called “two-state solution” is a recipe for war and expanded international isolation for the Jewish state.

 

The second option for Israel is to maintain the status quo. Today, Israel shares governing power in Judea and Samaria with the PLO. Sometimes the PLO cooperates with Israeli security forces, and sometimes it cooperates with terrorist groups.

 

The PLO rejects Israel’s right to exist. It uses every available platform to undermine Israel’s legitimacy and wage economic and political war against the Jewish state.

 

The advantage of the status quo is that under it, Israel has security control over Judea and Samaria. Consequently, it is able to prevent Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem from becoming strategically indistinguishable from Gaza, where Hamas is now openly collaborating with Islamic State forces in Sinai.

 

Israel’s third option is to apply its laws over all or parts of Judea and Samaria. The first benefit of this option is that it maintains Israel’s ability to defend itself against security threats emanating from the Palestinians and from the east.

 

Beyond that, under Israeli law, the civil rights of Palestinians and Jews in Judea and Samaria will be vastly improved. Israel’s liberal legal code is superior to both the military code governing the Jews and the Palestinian Authority’s law of the jackboot which governs the Palestinians.

 

Whereas the status quo invites and engenders politicization of Israel’s military commanders who serve as the governing authorities of the areas, the third option would end the politicization of the IDF. Generals would take a backseat to elected leaders and government ministries. Police would be responsible for law enforcement. Rather than deploy regular and reserve units to dispel rioters, police, who are better trained for such events, would be judiciously deployed in areas where they are most needed. The IDF’s operations would be limited to counterterrorism.

 

None of Israel’s actual three options will necessarily enhance its international standing. This is the case because, as we have seen, Israel’s international standing has little to do with anything Israel does.

 

But then again, by exhibiting strength, and forcefully asserting its rights, Israel may find itself winning the respect of some foreign governments that currently view it is weak and open to blackmail.

 

This brings us to Kerry’s questions about a one-state model.

 

Kerry asked, “How does Israel possibly maintain its character as a Jewish and democratic state when from the river to the sea there would not even be a Jewish majority?” The answer is easily. Israel will retain its strong Jewish majority, and its commitment to democracy, after it applies its laws to Judea and Samaria.

 

Kerry asked, “Would millions of Palestinians be given the basic rights of Israeli citizens including the right to vote, or would they be relegated to a permanent underclass?” The answer is yes, they would be given the basic rights of Israeli citizens, including the right to vote, and no, they would not be relegated to a permanent underclass.

 

Kerry asked, “Would the Israelis and Palestinians living in such close quarters have segregated roads and transportation systems with different laws applying in the Palestinian enclaves?” The answer is, no.

 

Kerry asked, “Would anyone really believe they were being treated equally?” The answer is that, as we have seen repeatedly, no matter what Israel does, and no matter what the Palestinians do, people like Kerry will always claim that Israel is mistreating the Palestinians.

 
Kerry asked, “What would the international response be to that, my friends, or to a decision by Israel to unilaterally annex large portions of the West Bank?” The answer, again, is that the international response to such a move would be about the same as the international response to the continuation of the status quo or to an Israel withdrawal. To wit, the response will be hostile to Israel.

 

Kerry asked, “How could Israel ever have true peace with its neighbors, as the Arab Peace Initiative promises and as every Arab leader I have met with in the last year reinforces to me as recently as in the last month that they are prepared to do?” The answer is that Israel can have true peace with the Arab world when the Arab world accepts the legitimacy and permanence of the Jewish state.

 

Kerry asked, “How will [Arab states make peace]… if there is no chance for a two-state solution?” The answer is that they will make peace when they decide they want peace and they rid their societies of Jew hatred.

 

Kerry asked, “How will the Arab street in today’s world let… [the two-state solution] go by?” The answer is that the Arab street doesn’t believe in the “two-state solution.” The Arab street wants the dissolution of Israel.

 

Finally, Kerry asked, “And wouldn’t Israel risk being in perpetual conflict with millions of Palestinian living in the middle of a state?” The answer is that Israel is at risk of perpetual conflict with the Palestinians and the Arab world as a whole for as long as the Arabs hate Jews. The millions of Palestinians living within Israel’s borders constitute a far smaller strategic danger to Israel than the millions of Jew-hating Arabs, who have terrorist armies, perched on its international borders.

 

At the outset of his remarks, Kerry explained that as far as US Middle East policy is concerned, “Our goal, our strategy is to help ensure that the builders and the healers throughout the region have the chance that they need to accomplish their tasks.”

 

Sadly, this is neither a goal nor a strategy. It is the sort of platitude you’re likely to find inside a Chinese fortune cookie.

 

If Kerry is interested in an actual strategy, he can fork out 20 bucks and buy my book.

Much of the Conservative oriented media were using words like “smoking gun” in Judicial Watch’s discovery of an email from Jeremy Bash to the State Department informing them that Benghazi was under attack and the Defense Department is prepared act immediately. The email was sent a mere hours after the attack began. The attack began about 9:40 PM on September 11, 2015 with the last defenders dying in mortar fire shortly after 5:15 AM on September 12, 2015.

 

Considering the U.S. military had assets in Tripoli, in Rota Spain and Croatia. And since the Bash email demonstrates that this was NOT a spontaneous Muslim riot inspired by a badly acted anti-Mohammed movie trailer called the “Innocence of Muslims.” The Muslim terrorist attack was well organized AND the higher-ups in the Obama Administration KNEW it was an organized Muslim terrorist attack. The Jeremy Bash email is at least yet another chink in the chain showing we the American voters that Obama, his Cabinet and his staff are a bunch of liars.

 

As to the Bash email “smoking gun,” the Dem Party liars of the House Benghazi Committee have launched their spin counter-attack against the “smoking gun” accusation. Evidently the minority Dem Committee members released an unredacted version of the Bash email. The Dems think this shows there is no “smoking gun.” Here is a screen capture of Dem member Bash email:

 

Unredacted Bash Email

Below is the Judicial Watch redacted version:

 

From: Bash, Jeremy CIV SD [REDACTED]

 

Sent: Tuesday, September 11, 2012 7:19 PM

 

To: Sullivan, Jacob J; Sherman, Wendy R; Nides, Thomas R

 

Cc: Miller, James HON OSD POLICY; Wienefeld, James A ADM JSC VCJCS; Kelly, John Lt Gen SD; martin, dempsey [REDACTED]

 

Subject: Libya

 

State colleagues:

 

I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton].

 

After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak. They include a [REDACTED].

 

Assuming Principals agree to deploy these elements, we will ask State to procure the approval from host nation. Please advise how you wish to convey that approval to us [REDACTED].

 

Jeremy

 

One glaring explanation the Dems fail to reveal that Judicial Watch does is the identity of “S”:

 

apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

 

The unredacted version includes the recommended forces to send and where they are located:

 

… a SOF element that was in Croatia (which can fly to Suda Bay, Crete), and a Marine FAST team out of Roda, Spain.”

 

The other portion unredacted reveals names that follows “Please advise how you wish to convey that approval to us”:

 

Burns/Nides/Sherman to Miller/Winnefeld would by my recommended course.”

 

I am currently unfamiliar with what those people do that was special enough to be redacted. If someone has a revealing source on these people, let me know in the comment section.

 

Frankly I do not see anything in the unredacted portion that indicates the Dem Party spin propaganda that there is no “smoking gun.”

 

Consider what Bash told the State Department under then Sec. Hillary Clinton saying, “After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.”

 

What? He wrote “spinning as we speak”. The official line is that Naval were too far away to provide relief. BUT what about Air Fighter Assets check out this map:

 

Map: Aviano Air Force Base to Sigonella Naval Air Station to Benghazi

 

No check out this remarkably plausible scenario that still makes this a “smoking gun” and that there are probably groups of people involved in a lying cover-up:

 

The Obvious Solution – Pit-Stop Sigonella

 

Now that we have an understanding of the tactical constraints facing the DOD, there is a (hopefully) obvious solution that more alert readers probably picked up on.

 

  • Hour 0-1.  While the F-16s at Aviano are not on strip alert, given the genuine emergency it’s reasonable to expect that within an hour of the order being given a sober pilot or two could have been located, an aircraft fuelled and in the air with a minimal default loadout.  In this scenario the aircraft may have had only ammunition for its 20mm cannon and pilot would be given a simple briefing on the way to the plane: Get to NAS Sigonella.

 

  • Hour 1-2.  Given that the distance from AFB Aviano to NAS Sigonella is only 610 miles, the pilot would be able to quickly attain altitude and cruise at above the standard cruising speed of 577 mph.  The F-16 would be on the ground at NAS Sigonella within an hour of its departure from AFB Aviano.  During this one hour flight two important things would happen:

 

1. Via radio the pilot receives a more detailed briefing.  The plan – a quick refuelling at NAS Sigonella and an immediate departure for Benghazi to fly a close air support (CAS) mission.

 

2. NAS Sigonella is informed of the incoming F-16 and told to prepare for immediate refuelling of the aircraft upon its arrival.

 

  • Hour 2-2.5.  The F-16 arrives at NAS Sigonella and is immediately refuelled.  While it’s possible to refuel an F-16 without even stopping the engines (hot-pit refuelling), it’s also possible that NAS Sigonella didn’t have a refuelling team available that was trained for this.  Thus, let’s assume that the refuelling process takes a full 30 minutes before the F-16 is again airborne and enroute to Benghazi.

 

  • Hour 2.5-3.5.  Given it is only 468 miles from NAS Sigonella to Benghazi the F-16 is on station and providing close air support within 3.5 hours from the initial order.

 

And, of course, subsequent F-16s could follow the same route at intervals to ensure that continuous air coverage was provided from that time on.

 

What Difference Would This Have Made?

 

According to the people on the ground and knowledgable about such matters, the appearance of U.S. warplanes would have been a total game-changer (see their testimony in Appendix A).  Basically, the consensus is that a single low altitude pass by an F-16 at full afterburner would have put the fear of God into the attackers – these men had all seen U.S. airpower in action during the Libyan campaign and would have tucked-tail and run as soon as air support showed up.

 

So, By What Time Could the F-16s Have Arrived in Benghazi?

 

Going back to our timeline of the attack (which started at 21:42), we can see that by 21:59 DOD had already redirected a surveillance drone to Benghazi.  This quick response is important because is shows us how efficiently orders could get relayed through the DOD chain of command.  By 23:00 it was clear to DOD that the attack involved U.S. casualties and was ongoing.  In my mind, there is no reason not to have scrambled the F-16s at this point.  After all, the worst case would be that the situation resolved and the F-16s would turn around and go home.  There was simply no reason not to deploy the F-16s and, conversely, every reason to do so.

U.S. Military was Prepared to Immediately Protect U.S. Diplomats in Benghazi, Email Records Show

 

Tom Fitton email

Sent: 12/11/2015 5:55 PM

Email sent by; Judicial Watch

 

Contrary to what the Obama administration has told the American people, the U.S. military was poised and ready to respond immediately and forcefully against terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.

 

That's what we have learned from an email exchange from then-Department of Defense Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash to State Department leadership immediately offering "forces that could move to Benghazi" during the terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. In an email sent to top Department of State officials, at 7:19 p.m. ET, only hours after the attack had begun, Bash says, "we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak." The Obama administration redacted the details of the military forces available, oddly citing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption that allows the withholding of "deliberative process" information.

Bash's email seems to directly contradict testimony given by then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta before the Senate Armed Services Committee in February 2013. Defending the Obama administration's lack of military response to the nearly six-hour-long attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Panetta claimed that "time, distance, the lack of an adequate warning, events that moved very quickly on the ground prevented a more immediate response."

This latest bombshell your Judicial Watch has released to the public has attracted considerable media attention. Here is how the Washington Examiner reported on these revelations:


While parts of the email were redacted, the message indicates the Pentagon was waiting for approval from the State Department to send the forces in. That help never arrived for the Americans under siege at the Benghazi compound. A spokesman for the House Select Committee on Benghazi said investigators had received the unredacted version of the email, which was obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act and made public Tuesday, last year but had declined to make it public.


Now would be a good time to go back and review the Obama administration's many prevarications on the Benghazi terrorist attacks. (A significant collection of our history-making work on the Benghazi scandal is available here.)

You may recall that the first assault occurred at the main compound at about 9:40 p.m. local time (3:40 p.m. ET in Washington, DC). The second attack on a CIA annex 1.2 miles away began three hours later, at about 12 a.m. local time the following morning (6 p.m. ET), and ended at approximately 5:15 a.m. local time (11:15 a.m. ET) with a mortar attack that killed security officers Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

The newly released email reads:


From: Bash, Jeremy CIV SD [REDACTED]
Sent: Tuesday, September 11, 2012 7:19 PM
To: Sullivan, Jacob J; Sherman, Wendy R; Nides, Thomas R
Cc: Miller, James HON OSD POLICY; Wienefeld, James A ADM JSC VCJCS; Kelly, John LtGen SD; martin, dempsey [REDACTED]

Subject: Libya

State colleagues:

I just tried you on the phone but you were all in with S [apparent reference to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton].

After consulting with General Dempsey, General Ham and the Joint Staff, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak. They include a [REDACTED].

Assuming Principals agree to deploy these elements, we will ask State to procure the approval from host nation. Please advise how you wish to convey that approval to us [REDACTED].

Jeremy


Jacob Sullivan was Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the time of the terrorist attack at Benghazi. Wendy Sherman was Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, the fourth-ranking official in the U.S. Department of State. Thomas Nides was the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources.

The timing of the Bash email is particularly significant based upon testimony given to members of Congress by Gregory Hicks, Deputy Chief of Mission of the U.S. embassy in Tripoli at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attack. According to Hicks' 2013 testimony, a show of force by the U.S. military during the siege could have prevented much of the carnage. Said Hicks, "If we had been able to scramble a fighter or aircraft or two over Benghazi as quickly as possible after the attack commenced, I believe there would not have been a mortar attack on the annex in the morning because I believe the Libyans would have split. They would have been scared to death that we would have gotten a laser on them and killed them."

Ultimately, Special Operations forces on their own initiative traveled from Tripoli to Benghazi to provide support during the attack. Other military assets were only used to recover the dead and wounded, and to evacuate U.S. personnel from Libya. In fact, other documents released in October by Judicial Watch show that only one U.S. plane was available to evacuate Americans from Benghazi to Tripoli and that raises questions about whether a delay of military support led to additional deaths in Benghazi.

As per usual, we only obtained this document after going to federal court. The new email came as a result of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on September 4, 2014 seeking:


• Records related to notes, updates, or reports created in response to the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. This request includes, but is not limited to, notes taken by then Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton or employees of the Office of the Secretary of State during the attack and its immediate aftermath.


The Obama administration and Clinton officials hid this compelling Benghazi email for years. The email makes readily apparent that the military was prepared to launch immediate assistance that could have made a difference, at least at the CIA Annex. The fact that the Obama Administration withheld this email for so long only worsens the scandal of Benghazi.

The Washington Examiner puts it very well:


The newly disclosed email chain casts doubt on previous testimony from high-level officials, several of whom suggested there was never any kind of military unit that could have been in a position to mount a rescue mission during the hours-long attack on Benghazi.


It came out later that day that the House Select Committee on Benghazi had been withholding from the public an unredacted version of the email released by Judicial Watch. Almost immediately upon Judicial Watch's release of the devastating email, a spokesman for the House Select Committee on Benghazi made a snide, sour-grapes announcement to The Daily Caller attempting to defend the Committee's decision to keep the email secret for a year by implicitly criticizing Judicial Watch's supposed "rush to release or comment on every document it uncovers." Bad enough fighting the lawless secrecy of the Obama administration - so it is disappointing to have the unnecessary spitballs from presumed allies for transparency.

The Democrats on the Select Committee thought they helped their cause of defending the indefensible by releasing a complete version of the email. Hardly. The new details show that the military forces that weren't deployed, specifically "a SOF [Special Operations Forces] element that was in Croatia (which can fly to Suda Bay, Crete), and a Marine FAST [Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team] team out of Rota, Spain." The FAST Team arrived well after the attack and the Special Operations Forces never left Croatia. In addition to providing confirming details that forces were ready to go, the Democrats expose the Obama administration's dishonesty in withholding the information in the first place.

All this goes to underscore the value of Judicial Watch's independent watchdog activities and our leadership in forcing truth and accountability over the Benghazi scandal.
