I have typically been a supporter of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In part because Netanyahu has stood up to America’s Leftist-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama. That drove BHO and his Leftist minion Democrats nuts. I am still okay with that. I am on the Historical and Investigative Research (HIR) email list. I finally took the opportunity to read an August 31 email from HIR which highlighted some disturbing news about Iran, Judea/Samaria, the Palestinian Authority (PA) and unfortunately Benjamin Netanyahu.

 

This email provides an understanding of a possible reason Netanyahu may face some hostility from the further Right Wing of his Conservative base. In summary the more Conservative faction is a bit upset with their Prime Minister that Iran has a path to acquire nuclear WMD which will be used against Israel but still supports the idea (at least publically) for the existence of Palestinian State in which the PA leadership is receiving clandestine financial and military aid from Iran. The more Conservative Israel Right is seeing a big load of hypocrisy from Benjamin Netanyahu.

 

It is my humble opinion though that Netanyahu is dealing with the realities of a rock and a hard place.

 

The rock is Israeli Leftists promoting the concept of land for peace under the delusion it will bring peace to the Jewish State of Israel. The hard place is President Barack Hussein Obama trying to court Muslim favor a la idiotic Jimmy Carter that sold out the Shah-ruled Iran (See Also HERE) to the psycho-Shi’ite Ayatollah-rule. As if exchanging the despotism of the Shah (American Leftist, CIA-Mossad Impact, Neocon Perspective, U.S.-British Oil Interests, Pro-Shah Perspective and fsmitha.com Perspective) for the despotism of the Ayatollah’s (See Also HERE) would be better for America and global peace. The Carter concept was erroneous in the late 1970s and the Obama concept is just as ludicrous in 2015 and beyond.

 

Obama is willing to throw Israel under the bus either under the delusion of peace in our time (can you say Neville Chamberlain?). OR Obama is embarking on a more nefarious agenda of disrupting the current global power structure which includes weakening the USA, to usher in a more Left Wing globalist power structure paradigm. Either way Obama sells out both America and our closest ally in the Middle East – Israel.

 

I am still convinced Netanyahu is the best man for the job in Israel. He is simply being forced into a geopolitical game in which Netanyahu is waiting to see who the next U.S. President will be, with the hope the new President understands the danger of a nuclear armed Iran and proceeds accordingly.

 

On the other hand, if Netanyahu’s geopolitical gamesmanship fails between Obama and Israel’s Jewish Left then followed by Iran actually acquiring nuke WMD resulting in a Palestinian State carved out of Israel’s heritage with Iran as hegemonic master and the new Palestinian State the new client. The next domino would be the destruction of Israel and a second modern Holocaust so devastating that Hitler’s final solution look like a picnic.

An important Israeli politician, Moshe Feiglin, has reposted on his Facebook Page an Arutz 7 article written by Rob Muchnick, his US director, asking the question:

 

Will the Israeli government give Judea and Samaria to Iran?

The article makes reference to HIR's short documentary film: PLO/Fatah and Iran: The Special Relationship (on Vimeo, on YouTube), which tells the story documented in an earlier HIR piece. This is exciting, because it is the beginning of political awareness on this crucial issue.

 

Here is Moshe Feiglin's post:

 

I wholeheartedly support this very important article from our US Director, Rob Muchnick.

 

Please read it and demand that Bibi answer the questions that Rob poses.

 

Dear Friends,

 

I wish to ask you a question.

 

Will the Israeli government — the government of the Jewish State — give Judea and Samaria to Iran?

 

That may seem impossible.

 

First, because our prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, daily warns that Iranian leaders wish to destroy us.

 

Second, because the media, although they discuss the connection between Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran, never mention the deeper ties that bind Iran and PLO/Fatah (better known as the ‘Palestinian Authority’).

 

And what is not in the news goes to sleep in the mind.

 

But a few days ago, Iran’s official news agency brought this connection back into view by reporting that PLO/Fatah and Iran have signed an “all-out cooperation agreement.”

 

PLO/Fatah will cooperate fully with Iran!

 

As a recent documentary reminds me, such cooperation is nothing new. (1) (2)

In the Second Intifada, the Iranian ayatollahs were running PLO/Fatah’s deadliest terrorists, the Al Aqsa Martyrs, and mobilized them to ensure that Mahmoud Abbas became Yasser Arafat’s replacement. At the same time, Iran also sent the Karin a freighter with 50 tons of weapons to the PLO/Fatah. Thankfully, this ship was intercepted by Israel.

 

But the relationship is older.

 

In 1979, when the Iranian Islamist regime came to power, the New York Times reported on its front page that PLO/Fatah had been architect of that revolution:

 

• Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas armed and trained Ayatollah Khomeini’s troops;

 

• Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas were invited, before any others, to celebrate with Khomeini in Teheran; and then

 

• Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas helped created the Iranian security services and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

 

As they celebrated in Teheran, Arafat declared that PLO/Fatah and Iranian aims were identical: the violent destruction of the Jewish people and State.

 

Meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas explained to Arab reporters how it would be done:

 

First, promise peace. Then, gain some territory. And last: annihilate Israel. Abbas called it the ‘Plan of Phases’; the media called it the ‘Peace Process.’

 

So far, all goes according to plan. But will they conclude it?

 

Will we let them?

 

Join me, as Israeli citizens and Jews worldwide, in demanding from our prime minister answers to these questions:

 

Why is PLO/Fatah still in Israel?

 

Will our government give Judea and Samaria to Iran?

PLO/Fatah and Iran: The Special Relationship

PLO/Fatah, now better known as the “Palestinian Authority,” will govern a Palestinian State in the militarily strategic territories of Judea and Samaria (or “West Bank”) if the Middle East “peace process” concludes with a “Two-State Solution.” Given that Iranian leaders daily promise the destruction of Israel, most people assume that PLO/Fatah has nothing to do with Iran. It would be absurd, they implicitly reason, for Israeli leaders to give strategic territory to an Iranian proxy. And yet, it is a historical fact that PLO/Fatah helped install Ayatollah Khomeini in power and helped create the current Iranian Islamist regime. It has maintained a close relationship with this regime ever since. This short film documents that relationship.

 

Short Preface

 

The Obama administration, like any government, routinely makes public statements about its intentions, values, and policy imperatives. For example, the Obama administration claims publicly to be enemy of Iran[1] and friend of Israel. In fact, the US government claims that “‘concerning policy, we have done everything that we can that is in Israel’s security – and long-range interests.”[2]

 

But what if PLO/Fatah, also known as the ‘Palestinian Authority,’ is a proxy of Iran?

 

The US government pushes very hard for Israel to give strategic territory to PLO/Fatah in exchange for a promise of ‘peace.’ So if PLO/Fatah is helping Iran destroy Israel, the US government’s behavior is quite interesting.

 

About the future PLO/Fatah state, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu states: “I think it's important to make peace with the Palestinians. And I’m prepared to negotiate that peace right away. ...They should have their own independent country.” Consistent with this, Netanyahu is rushing to give PLO/Fatah its independent state, and has even put Jerusalem on offer. But Netanyahu has also said: “We should be assured that this country [the future PLO/Fatah state] is not used as a staging ground for Iranian-sponsored terrorist attacks on us.” So if PLO/Fatah is a proxy of Iran, the Israeli government’s behavior is also quite interesting.[3]

 

One should then ask: What in the world are the US and Israeli governments doing?

This must be answered, because PLO/Fatah, like Hamas and Hezbollah, is indeed part of an Iranian offensive to destroy Israel.

 

We will show here that PLO/Fatah has always been and continues to be very closely allied with Iran.

 

PLO/Fatah’s role in Ayatollah Khomeini’s coup

 

The regime that still rules Iran was inaugurated by Ayatollah Khomeini (see pictures, top right), a ferocious Islamist terrorist who led the 1979 Iranian Revolution to depose the previous ruler, the Shah of Iran. With whom did the Ayatollah Khomeini want to celebrate, right away and before sharing the joy with anybody else?

 

With Yasser Arafat, then head of PLO/Fatah.

 

It was just two weeks after the Ayatollah Khomeini returned to Iran and took power that the New York Times reported how Yasser Arafat had accepted an invitation to visit Teheran. Why so soon? Why so much deference? Because the Ayatollah Khomeini was ... READ THE REST at SlantRight 2.0 or HIR

katchi abadis residents protest eviction 8-24-15

 

 

Here something to think about in reading Shamim Masih’s report on Christian persecution in Pakistan:

 

Police collusion is strongly suspected in a massive arson attack on the Christian Joseph Colony in the Pakistani city of Lahore on March 9 and legal people are questioning whether there is a property-related agenda behind the attack.

 

The chief justice of Pakistan, Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudry, rejected the police report on the incident during a hearing in the Supreme Court on March 11, accusing them of sheltering criminals and failing to act to prevent the violence, even though he believes they had prior knowledge that it was being planned.

 

He asked if a property-related matter was the real reason behind what he called police collusion in the attack, which was carried out by around 3,000 Muslim men.

 

It occurred on the morning of March 9, destroying at least 160 homes of low to middle class Christians and 18 shops, as well as one Catholic church and a Seventh Day Adventist complex.

 

Sister Marie Cecile Osborne, the principal of the Jesus Mary and Joseph Convent School in Lahore, said, “In 2012, elements close to Shahbaz Sharif, the chief minister of the Punjab, and his brother, Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, were involved in a politico-police action to grab land in Lahore belonging to the Catholic Church.” [Bold Emphasis is Blog Editor’s]

 

Prior to the looting and burning of Joseph Colony, a 25-year-old Christian man, Sawan Masih, was accused of blasphemy by Imran Shahid, a crime that is punishable by death.

 

Masih and Imran had been friends. Dilawar Masih, a Christian whose shop was destroyed in the attack, said, “Both Imran (Shahid) and Sawan (Masih) were close friends. Imran has made the allegation only to settle a personal score, because they had quarrelled [sic] over some petty matter.”

 

The police then visited the area and advised the Christian people to leave, which most of them did.

 

But so did the police, who then did nothing to protect the property, even though they knew trouble was brewing.

 

 

She also accused the police of colluding in the attack. “Indications are the police were ordered to leave the scene before the violence began.” She implied strongly that the Sharif brothers are behind the whole affair in their attempt to get property. [Bold Emphasis is Blog Editor’s]

 

READ ENTIRETY (Stench of police collusion in land grab as Christian village is burned; By CATHOLIC NEWS OF THE WEEK; Sunday ExaminerHong Kong Diocese; 9/5/15)

 

When Shamim fingers Nawaz Sharif of the ruling political party PML-N, he is pointing to the political corruption of Pakistan’s political leaders especially as it relates to Christian forced to primarily live in urban slums in Pakistan. Shamim is a shining light in a nation dominated by Islamic darkness. Corrupt politicians aim first at helpless minorities. In the case of the urban slums (katchi abadis) this target is the displacement of Pakistani Christians.

Petulant PML-N will RAZE the Slums in the Capital

 

By Shamim Masih

Sent: September 4, 2015 03:37

 

ISLAMABAD: The ruling Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) party in Pakistan is evidently considered against the Christians in the country. Most of the inhuman retort, like burning a Christian couple, burning Christian colonies after accusing any Christian had been in Punjab during its rule. A death penalty punishment was being added in blasphemy law by the Godfather of Nawaz Sharif, (Gen Zia ul Haq). The PML-N leader was reportedly behind the burning of the hundreds of the Christians’ houses including two churches in Joseph Colony, Lahore in March, 2013.

 

Now during the rule of the said party the Capital Development Authority (CDA) plans to demolish 41 slums in different sectors of the capital though few katchi abadis were regularized with no development by the CDA though promised. CDA informed the Supreme Court that katchi abadis will be demolished in four phases but no time frame was given to execute the plan.

 

Under phase I, the slums to be knocked down are: Street 17 of Sector I-10/1, Sector H-11/2 Kashmir Highway, Roshan Colony Sector I-12, Christian Colony Sector G-6/1-4, Dhobi Ghat G-6/2, Sector F-8/1 Nazimuddin Road, Green Belt H-12 and I-12 behind NUST, Muzaffar Colony H-11/4, Musharraf Colony G-8/4, Muhallah Dori Bagh, Miskeen Colony G-8/4, Shopper Colony G-7 Markaz, Sector H-9 and Bari Imam Katchi Abadi.

 

Likewise, 11 katchi abadis will be removed under phase II. They are: Chak Shahzad (PIA), Chak Shahzad Pona Faqiran, Dhoke Pathan Chamber Road Abadi, Dhoke Pathan (Sahila), Khanna Pull, New Shkrial katchi abadi, Shams Colony Bhangra Road, Rawat, Sumbal at Korak Town, Junejo Colony, Mohriyan and NIH Colony.

 

Five similar colonies are slated to be demolished under phase III. They are: Bheka Syedan F-11, Sectors G-12, F-12, E-12 behind Khushian Wali Sarkar and I-11/2 Bakra and Surain.

 

In phase IV, the slums to be removed are located at Sectors G-7/1, G-7/2 (66 quarters), G-7/3-2 (48 quarters), F-6/2, F-7/4 France Colony, Hansa Colony G-8/1, Essa Nagri I-9/1 and Muslim Colony, Bari Imam.

 

A petition was moved in the Supreme Court, seeking that the state is bound to provide the evicted people shelter and other amenities under the constitution. On the other hand, the civic agency submitted a report stating that the plan to demolish the slum settlements had been approved by the interior ministry. The Apex Court [is] sounding silent, besides, in February 2014 the Islamabad High Court had also issued directions in this regard.

 

Most of the people in these slum areas are Christians, and have been living for more than three decades. They are constantly living under threat though serving the well-to-do families in the capital. Most of them work as laborers, housekeepers, street cleaners but the authorities has not provided them housing facilities. Their children are starving and families choose to sell themselves into slavery for survival, illustrating that humanity has left the nation of Pakistan.

 

Mostly living across the seasonal drainages (Nalaas) and always affected by the flood every year in the rainy season but no disaster recovery plan or infrastructure has been put in place to enhance their safety and security. Victims lost most of their possessions every year which washed away with their homes or irretrievably ruined by water surge. But they again manage their livings. Many of them have been drowned during the raining season and died, left their children helpless. These people are living without any proper drainage system, no pure water facility, no regular electricity and gas facility provided by CDA.

 

If the CDA starts its operation against the slums, it will leave a hundred thousand Christians homeless in the first phase only. Christian Colony Sector G-6/1-4, Musharraf Colony G-8/4, Miskeen Colony G-8/4, Shopper Colony G-7 Markaz, and Sector H-9 are thickly populated areas. Thus the operation will ruin more than half million Christians in population on the ground.

  

Note: - I have been working tirelessly to raise voice and to help end injustice for the Christians in Pakistan. But certainly with the limited resources [I] can’t do it on a regular basis. If you feel [same need to aid fellow Christians], please support this cause that I might continue to write for Pakistani Christian. I shed tears when I heard the story of this repeating plight [of Christian persecution] and [I] hope others are moved by the tragic lifestyle these families face daily.

 

For Americans especially, I have discovered the best way to donate to Shamim Masih is via Western Union sending money with this LINK to a Western Union agent in Islamabad. Include Shamim’s phone - +92-300-642-4560

 

Be Blessed,

On August 17 I cross posted Raymond Ibrahim’s explorative essay entitled, “How Nazism Explains 'Moderate' and 'Radical' Islam”. Ibrahim drew a comparative analogy between Hitler’s Nazism and Mohammed’s Islam to understand present day so-called Moderate Muslims and Radical violent Muslims. The essay though relatively short was quite enlightening and should be re-read every once in a while to under the paradigm that modern Muslims face.

 

I stashed away two comments on this analogy of Nazism and Islam and their adherents. The first comment is from a Facebook Group and the second comment is from a Google Plus individual. I concurred with both comments and that is why I am sharing them. The Google Plus comment I liked so well that I as an Editor added some source links.

The logic applied is on the surface a fair enough approach, but flawed. The flaw resides in the ideology and cultural grip of Islam on its adherents. Unlike Nazi Germany, which was essentially an outgrowth of the harshness of Versailles Treaty, using anti-Semitism as a lightning rod, Islam is a totalitarian system going back centuries. Thus, there is an inherited allegiance, not by biology but by socialization...Islam promotes honor in a manner that is at odds with Greco-Roman cognition, and it is this ability to reason that allowed Wallenberg, for example, the ability to negotiate for Jewish lives. Islam does not provide this level or even likelihood of negotiation. While nice individuals exist within in Islam, ultimately the Quran and cultural pressure will carry the day. Remember folks - Islam produced no Beethoven...the West did.

Are you aware what they pray for 5 times per day? Be aware, get the new book by Ayaan Hirsi Ali (Her AHA bio), former Muslim that speaks the truth about Islam and Quran. All lives do matter, not just black lives.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali


Political correctness on Islam is the issue of our time for all candidates. We all should be tired of the Islamic advance in America and the PC given to Islam. Enough is enough forget about PC. A clear and present danger. It is long overdue to forget about political correctness and watch out for all Mosques, and the Imams that preach the hate and violence toward America with their Quran and Sharia law. And now Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has called upon 10,000 blacks to kill [2 minute clip of Farrakhan in own words] all whites, and got a standing ovation at his church. He cites Islam and the Quran for justification to kill whites. Why was he not arrested for his hate and [his] call to violence, which would come under a terrorist is beyond me?

 

The "Trojan Horse" is here and in your neighborhood. It’s time to investigate all Mosques before further homeland attacks occur on our military, far too many Imams preach hate and violence toward America. How many more attacks will it take until America gets the message? 4 Marines and one sailor are dead, as a direct result of the Mosques, Islam and the Quran. What more is there to know? [I] Have studied Islam and the Quran for several years now and have been inside Mosques and spoken to their Imams. Let there be no mistake about it. Islam, from its beginning, has been a religion of the sword.

 

The concept of Holy War (Jihad) mandated by Allah, requires all of Islam to completely subdue the earth through military and violent conquest. The Quran says it all. When will America wake up? One sad sick religion. They place a premium on death versus life. They will never grasp the concept of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness on earth. Women are treated as a sub class under Islam with no rights at all. They will never adapt to our customs and culture but rather want to force Islam and Sharia upon the World. And if they can take a Jew, Christian or infidel to their death along with them, they view it as an honor.

 

Like it or not, politically correct or not, we are at War with Islam. And until America recognizes that fact, more tragic deaths will result. Sharia law will continue to expand. . Mosques are hiding places for terrorists and we have 3400 plus in America. Read the truth here about Islam and the Quran and Sharia. Get a copy of "Heretic" by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a former Muslim that speaks from experience. Violence is inherit in Islam. It is not a religion of peace. When they are praying 5 times per day they are praying for death to Jews, Christians and infidels and most people are clueless. The threat is real folks. Read the book now and get the real truth. Also google "theprojectmuslimbrotherhood" and see their plan to destroy America from within.

Traditional Biblical Faith and Non-Traditional Thinking

 

John R. Houk

© September 7, 2015

 

I had cross posted an email from Elsa Schieder by some thoughts her email inspired. The title of that post is “My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde”. The subject title of Elsa’s email was “Honor Umar Mulinde - we stand with this man”. If you don’t know, are uniformed or are multiculturally brainwashed here are some quotes on Islam from experts and Muslims alike – HERE and HERE.

 

The reason I added some personal thoughts on same-sex marriage is because after promoting Pastor Umar Mulinde for a nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize for being a Christian Pastor persecuted for his faith with a Muslim acid bath Elsa addressed some flak on her position on same-sex marriage. Evidently she lost a huge amount of subscribers who looked forward to her Counterjihad newsletters.

 

Here is an excerpt of the email addressing the cancelling subscribers:

 

And now I will come back to the response to my piece saying that I don't see how permitting gay marriage threatens marriage. A few people wrote comments like, brilliant! They were in the minority. I also had a couple of thoughtful responses against gay marriage. Again, these were in the minority. I've never had so many people cancel - including people who have been getting the updates for 3 years, since I started the initial interview series. Several cancelled with comments like: "God says homosexuality is a sin. Just what don't you understand?"

I could have answered that we don't all believe in the same god. Quite a few of us don't believe in any cosmic force.

But that would have been a response to the words, not to the emotion.

What I saw most was that my not being against gay marriage touched what I might call a hot button, often a hot anger button. Game over. Get out now. No more updates ever
. (Found in post “My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde”)

 

I have to admit I did not read Elsa’s supportive email for same-sex marriage. Nonetheless, if I had read it I would have gone through that inner search that weighs what I am acutely aware about Islam as anti-Western and anti-Christian (and numerous anti-this or that which should alarm the full scale of the political spectrum) in its revered writings measured against the Biblical principles that homosexuality is a sinful abomination. Here are a couple of blog posts that will give some insight into my stand on the Bible pertaining to homosexuality:

 

 

 

I responded to Elsa with surprise that subscribers left a Counterjihad subscription because of a stand that Conservative Americans (including myself) would disagree. I still believe in her role as a Counterjihad writer regardless of disagreeing with her stand on same-sex marriage. Here is an excerpt from what I wrote about same-sex marriage:

 

In the matter of same-sex marriage: For me there is no way around the fact that marriage is a religious oath of fidelity. As far as the Bible informs then, same-sex marriage should not be performed or accepted by Christians. However, a civil union as in a defined and binding contract is Constitutional according to even [Constitutional] Original Intent and a matter of choosing Life in Christ or death in the Last Judgment with Satan and his deceived minions. Christians should never give up on showing a person lost in sin the Light of Christ and the path to eternal redemption. (I added “Constitutional” for clarity - John R. Houk; My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde)

 

I am fairly certain that some fellow believers will find the “civil union” concept as something still unacceptable. Nevertheless we do live in a nation of laws. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights are central to American culture. It is our Constitution that allows some sort of agreeing harmony among Leftists, Conservatives, religious adherents, Secular Humanists and atheists pertaining to the respect for law and order. Constitutional interpretation is becoming a wider gap in the American political spectrum. I have come to the conclusion that Multiculturalism and politically correct Left Wing thinking has eroded the American harmony into more and more conflict.

 

Elsa’s email response to my thoughts on same-sex marriage relate to the point that not all people have my perspective on the supremacy of a monotheist God from the Judeo-Christian Holy Bible. She wrote as follows:

 

Hello John,

 

Thank you for writing. I don't see anyone as insignificant. 

 

I have also noted your many efforts on google plus. Not insignificant. 

 

Much more, I know we are not insignificant as ourselves, who we are. 

 

Yes, we disagree on gay marriage - however, like you I want to do this respectfully. 

 

On my side, as you must know, my spirituality, and also my beliefs about the more-than-5-sense-world, are different from yours. So what for you is sin and death, for me is fine - freedom unless you are hurting someone (hitting, insulting, etc.). 

 

The most amazing thing for me: this experience with traditional Christians is something new for me - except for some encounters with Jehovah's Witnesses as a mid-teen. Yours is an alien inner landscape for me. 

 

My sense is we come to counter-jihad from different angles - for me Islam is against freedom, the right to flourish. 

 

And now I want to tell you about a strength of the traditional Christians I have noticed (and you most likely know).

 

I've had to hold out against political correctness on my own - through thinking. Most people around me have gone the brain-wrecked route of political correctness. 

 

Traditional Christians have more tools - starting with being encouraged to stand strongly for the truths they believe in, not caving in if someone else is offended. 

 

And yet, like the non-religious politically correct people, so many of them have caved in as well. 

 

Anyway, I find it vital that we can stand for our beliefs - and also learn - and discuss. 

 

From my "experience" (meaning, one can't verify as one can verify the experience of a sunset) of the "cosmic" (or however one might designate it), I don't see that my view on gay marriage will ever coincide with yours. 

 By the way, re-marriage - I think you read my viewpoint: the different religions should have the option to marry (or not marry) in accordance with their beliefs, except when this violates the law (like marrying a child). I know, for instance, that the different branches of the Lutheran church have very different understandings of the biblical texts – re: women, gays, etc. (I am not going to mix into this argument - not mine.)

 

A big thing, for me: respecting each other, even when there is disagreement.

 

Again, thank you for writing,

 

All the best,

 

Elsa

On 2015-09-01, at 2:18 PM

                                         

 

When I asked for permission to use Elsa’s permission to post her email, she gave permission and responded thus including a quote from my intro to her promotion of Pastor Umar Mulinde for the Nobel Peace Prize (“My Thoughts on Same-Sex Marriage & Nobel for Pastor Mulinde”):

 

I agree:

 

“(E)ven in disagreement there is still ground for agreement. Christians (of all Denominations), atheists, Secularists and other religions not Islamic should unite and agree that Islam is a threat to all of our lines of thought and beliefs.”

 

All the best to all of us on the side of life, love, freedom,

 

Elsa

 

There is a time when political and social disagreements need to be set aside in Western Culture. The theopolitical tenets of the revered writings of Islam inspiring Sunni and Shia aspirations for a global Caliphate at the expense of the Liberties and Freedoms that have come to pass in West should/MUST unite a common goal to stop the un-Western concepts of Islam from finding any kind of ascendance. Since I am an American this unity must especially coalesce insuring the efficacy of the United State Constitution.

Clare Lopez and evil POTUS

 

John R. Houk

© September 6, 2015

 

Tom Trento of The United West sent a roughly ten minute video link of Clare Lopez explaining the reason why the Obama-Kerry Iran Nuke Deal will be disastrous for the United States of America. This is a very important video to watch! As an American voter of the Left or Right you will gain an understanding of the reason this deal is an act of lunacy for America’s part AND a deal of brilliance for Iran’s nuclear weapons program and the continued financial support for Iran’s Islamic terrorist clients.

 

In order to add some credibility to Ms. Lopez you should know some of her background:

 

You’ll never meet a nicer person than Clare Lopez and she is stunningly brilliant. She’s also honest to a fault and extremely ethical. I agree with her, Obama has actively allowed the infiltration of our government by the Muslim Brotherhood. He has had America switch sides in the War on Terror. We are now in bed with our enemies and we are standing against Israel. Obama is seeking the destruction of the Jewish State and America. We are no longer stemming the spread of Shariah law… we are assisting in the proliferation of it. Everything he has done since he has been in office is to spread Islamic doctrine and influence, while populating the US with Islamic refugees and helping Iran become THE strong horse in the Middle East.

 

From The Political Insider:

 

Clare Lopez is a former CIA officer, and she is risking her professional career to call out President Barack Obama in the biggest way possible.

 

Lopez is well respected in the intelligence community and worked in the Reagan White House. After two decades in the field with the CIA, and as an instructor for special forces and intelligence students, Lopez is now with the Center for Security Policy managing the counter-jihad and Shariah programs.

 

Now, she is claiming Obama is why America has completely “switched sides” during the war on terrorism. America is now supporting the enemy, especially through the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

Lopez has been unwilling to speak in public, but has confided with a few members of the House of Representatives her serious concerns about Obama’s motivations about foreign policy decisions.

 

Lopez noted that the war on terrorism has always been about stopping the spread of Shariah Islamic law, until Obama started to make major changes which clearly supported the Muslim Brotherhood’s jihadist interests.

 

She said the global war on terror had been an effort to “stay free of Shariah,” or repressive Islamic law, until the Obama administration began siding with such jihadist groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its affiliates.

 

The transition was easy for Obama, who already hates American values and principles as an ideologically radical…

 

Why the switch?

 

Lopez explained, when the so-called Arab Spring appeared in late 2010, “It was time to bring down the secular Muslim rulers who did not enforce Islamic law. And America helped.”

 

And why would Obama want to do that?

 

As she told WND earlier this month, Lopez believed the Muslim Brotherhood has thoroughly infiltrated the Obama administration and other branches of the federal government.

 

She also came to the conclusion Obama had essentially the same goals in the Mideast as the late Osama bin Laden: “to remove American power and influence, including military forces, from Islamic lands.”

 

And,

 

The former CIA operative said, “as Israel fought enemies on all sides to remain free, secure and Jewish, America began to move away from Israel and toward its Muslim enemies. And, as Iran moved inexorably toward a deliverable nuclear weapons capability, America helped.”

 

via WND

 

In addition, Lopez claims that the only reason Obama approved of the killing of Osama bin Laden is he simply couldn’t ignore the chance without looking suspicious. The opportunity presented himself, and he “couldn’t delay it any longer.”

 

I concur with Clare on Osama bin Laden having to be taken down because otherwise it would have been impossible to deny Obama’s Islamic sympathies. However, I also think that bin Laden had outlived his usefulness and there is a possibility he could have been a willing martyr as he was dying from a kidney condition. Just a thought. This is all orchestrated and planned. What you are seeing is an agenda that is being faithfully implemented and followed. Just as the Iran deal is just a pretext. The whole point here was not the deal, it was redistributing $150 billion back to Iran and to make sure they become a nuclear power. Obama has almost accomplished everything he set out to do with help from both sides of the political aisle. History will look back on this presidency as the greatest betrayal of America ever to occur. That’s if we have a history to look back upon when this is done. (Former CIA Officer, Clare Lopez, Just EXPOSED OBAMA… Our Worst Fears Are TRUE! By Terresa Monroe-Hamilton; Right Wing News; 9/4/15)

 

Clare Lopez is not a run-of-mill pundit, rather she is a gal that knows what she is talking about.

 

The media on the Left and Right have been hailing an Obama victory after Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) went public supporting Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal. For people doing the math she became the 34th supporter meaning a veto override would fall one vote short of the 67 needed in the Senate. You haven’t heard much in the media about the House also having to override the veto. That vote must be at least 290 to override. There is a Republican majority in the House of 246; ergo to override a veto the GOP must pick up 44 votes. In the case of the House this is assuming no RINOs flip to Obama and 44 Dems will join the GOP. (Source for the math)

 

A vote will be no later than September 17, 2015. Regardless of the media Obama seal, that means the constituents of the treasonous Dems still have ample opportunity to harangue their Senator or Representative to think America more than the Obama sell-out.

A fellow WordPress blogger going by Vladdi added some brilliant additions to the post I made on 9/2/15 entitled “Compendium of Quotes about Islam”. Although I also post on other blog platforms this was on my WordPress blog called NeoConservative Christian Right (NCCR). As usual when cross posting comments I have to create a title not made by the author. In this case – Vladdi’s Compendium of Quotes about Islam.

Here’s one they missed:

 

“Islam wishes to do away with all states and governments which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam. The purpose of Islam is to set up a state on the basis of this ideology and program, regardless of which nation assumes the role of standard-bearer of Islam, and regardless of the rule of which nation is undermined in the process of the establishment of an ideological Islamic state. Islam requires the earth — not just a portion, but the entire planet…”

 

– Maududi –

Recall Khomeini’s words during his 1980 speech in Qom, the Shi’ite spiritual hub:

“We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land burn. I say let this land [Iran] go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.”

 

…….

 

Ali Gomaa, the grand mufti of Egypt, the highest Muslim religious authority in the world, supports murdering non-Muslims. In the daily Al Ahram (April 7, 2008), he said, “Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam.” He also compares non-Muslims to apes and pigs.

Muhammad Sayyid Al Tantawi, president of Al Azhar University (the most prominent and authoritative institute of Islamic jurisprudence in the world) also approves of killing and maiming Christians, Jews, and other infidels. He added, “This is not my personal view. This what the Shari’a Law says, the law of Allah, the only valid law on the earth.”

And here you have it from the biggest terrorist of all time:

 

“I have been made victorious with terror”
– The Prophet Muhammad
(Hadith Bukhari 4:52:220 – Islamic scripture)

 

Indeed in the Prophet Muhammad you have a good example to follow”.

– The Quran (Surah Al-Ahzab, Verse 21)

 

Syed Abul Ala Maududi, founder of the Pakistani political party Jamaat-e-Islami, said non-Muslims have “absolutely no right to seize the reins of power in any part of God’s earth nor to direct the collective affairs of human beings according to their own misconceived doctrines.” If they do, “the believers would be under an obligation to do their utmost to dislodge them from political power and to make them live in subservience to the Islamic way of life.”

The Chief Justice of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh abdullah bin Muhammad bin Humaid teaches that “at first fighting was forbidden, then it was permitted, and after that it was made obligatory.” He clearly identifies two groups Muslims are obligated to fight: “(1) they who start fighting against Muslims, and (2) they who worship gods other than Allah.”

The most prominent Muslim scholar of the 20th century, Sheikh Abu Ala Maududi, stated in his book, Islamic Law and Constitution, on p. 262, that the Islamic State “seeks to mould every aspect of life and activity. In such a state no one can regard any field of his affairs as personal and private. Considered from this aspect the Islamic State bears a kind of resemblance to the Fascist and Communist states.” Maududi added “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam.”

Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood (the largest international Islamic organization in the world) wrote, “Islam is an all-embracing concept which regulates every aspect of life, adjudicating on every one of its concerns and prescribing for it a solid and rigorous order.” Hasan al-Banna acknowledged there are many levels of jihad, including mere “interior spiritual struggle,” which he deemed the lowest level. According to al-Banna, waging warfare against the infidels is the highest expression of fidelity.

Hasan al-Banna also wrote, “it is a duty incumbent on every Muslim to struggle towards the aim of making every people Muslim and the whole world Islamic, so that the banner of Islam can flutter over the earth and the call of the Muezzin can resound in all the corners of the world.” Now remember, this is the founder of the largest international Muslim organization in the world.

And let’s not forget Voltaire:

 

VOLTAIRE ON ISLAM, MUHAMMAD, AND MUSLIMS:

 

Voltaire found prophet Mohammed grotesque in character and conduct.

 

In his tragedy Le Fanatisme ou Mahomet, Voltaire described Mohammed as an “impostor”, a “false prophet”, a “fanatic” and a “hypocrite”. Voltaire defended the play, he said that he “tried to show in it into what horrible excesses fanaticism, led by an impostor, can plunge weak minds”.

 

When Voltaire wrote in 1742 to César de Missy, he described Mohammed as a “deceitful character.”

 

In 1748, after having read Henri de Boulainvilliers and George Sale, he wrote again about Mohammed and Islam in an article, “De l’Alcoran et de Mahomet” (On the Quran and on Mohammed). In the article, Voltaire maintained that Mohammed was a “sublime charlatan” and wrote that furthermore he was not an illiterate.

 

Drawing also on complementary information in the “Oriental Library” of Herbelot, Voltaire, according to René Pomeau, had a judgement (sic) of Qur’an where he found the book in spite of “the contradictions, the absurdities, the anachronisms”, “rhapsody, without connection, without order, and without art”. Thus he “henceforward conceded” that “if his book was bad for our times and for us, it was very good for his contemporaries, and his religion even more so. It must be admitted that he removed almost all of Asia from idolatry” and that “it was difficult for such a simple and wise religion, taught by a man who was constantly victorious, could hardly fail to subjugate a portion of the earth.” He considered that “its civil laws are good; its dogma is admirable which it has in common with ours” but that “his means are shocking; deception and murder”.

 

In his play about Moe, Voltaire continues about Islam that “Nothing is more terrible than a people who, having nothing to lose, fight in the united spirit of rapine and of religion.”

 

In a 1740 letter to Frederick II of Prussia, Voltaire ascribes to Muhammad a brutality that “is assuredly nothing any man can excuse” and suggests that his following stemmed from superstition and lack of enlightenment. Voltaire continued in his letter, “But that a camel-merchant should stir up insurrection in his village; that in league with some miserable followers he persuades them that he talks with the angel Gabriel; that he boasts of having been carried to heaven, where he received in part this unintelligible book, each page of which makes common sense shudder; that, to pay homage to this book, he delivers his country to iron and flame; that he cuts the throats of fathers and kidnaps daughters; that he gives to the defeated the choice of his religion or death: this is assuredly nothing any man can excuse, at least if he was not born a Turk, or if superstition has not extinguished all natural light in him.” – Referring to Muhammad, in a letter to Frederick II of Prussia (December 1740), published in Oeuvres complètes de Voltaire, Vol. 7 (1869), edited by Georges Avenel, p. 105.

 

In a 1745 letter recommending his play Fanaticism, or Mahomet to Pope Benedict XIV, Voltaire described the founder of Islam, Muhammad as “the founder of a false and barbarous sect” and “a false prophet.”

 

Voltaire wrote that “Your holiness will pardon the liberty taken by one of the lowest of the faithful, though a zealous admirer of virtue, of submitting to the head of the true religion this performance, written in opposition to the founder of a false and barbarous sect. To whom could I with more propriety inscribe a satire on the cruelty and errors of a false prophet, than to the vicar and representative of a God of truth and mercy?”

Yesterday I posted “Get on Board with Anti-Iran Nuke Deal Rally in DC”. I posted about the rally not realizing that on Wednesday it was reported that Maryland’s Sen. Barbara Mikulski became the 34th senator to support Obama’s nuclear deal. Not a few pointed out that out to me yesterday after I had posted. One detractor of whom I have immense respect for his analytical acumen conversed with me via a comment interaction over some Facebook groups.

 

All that my detractor share was categorically accurate. I was left only refuting him with a football analogy to wit: The game is never over until the clock hits zeros. I alluded in hope that a massive public outcry to the Senators selling America and Israel out to a nuclear armed Iran could change enough Senators or Congressmen to override Obama’s veto just as the clock ran out.

 

I called this thinking “hope”. My learned detractor probably correctly called the thinking a fantasy. Even if “fantasy” is a more apt description than “hope,” I was disturbed with the futility that hope was useless. I still finding hopeless futility disturbing.

 

Just think how futile many American colonialists and British lawmakers believed an American rebellion would work to change the oppression slowly overshadowing colonial British citizens. Indeed, I wonder how many signers of the Declaration of Independence felt they signed their own death warrant gloomily expecting the British military to brutally hunt down the minority rebellious colonialists and execute them for treason via the noose or firing squad. The last sentence of the Declaration of Independence:

 

“And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” (The Declaration of Independence; The Heritage Foundation (analysis on First Principles Series)

 

The 56 signers knew that death was probable but signed anyway.

 

Mark Folkertsma writes about how many of the signers and family members indeed met nefarious ends at the hands of the British during the fight for independence:

 

… Pretty heady stuff for a group of heroes who knew that their actions exposed them all to charges of treason, for which the penalty was swift and sure execution at the hands of the colonial masters whose authority they defied.

 

Indeed, during the revolutionary war that followed this event, almost all of the signers of the Declaration of Independence lost their property; many lost their families or saw them waste away in imperial prisons. More than a few died in infamy, penniless, and forgotten. All for the sake of the Declaration; all for the sake of their “sacred honor.”

 

 

Is there a way out? Yes, and that way is the Declaration of Independence. After all, a decent respect for its moral principles – God-authored rights, equality before the law, contract theory of government – demands our attention, claims our reverence. And, in the final analysis, our sacred honor. This truly is the Spirit of '76. (A Decent Respect: Renewing the Spirit of '76; By Marvin Folkertsma; The Patriot Post; 7/1/14)

 

It is my belief that the American Spirit birthed in 1776 is a part of our mental DNA. If that DNA fails to act in one of those Dem Senators and Congressmen that have committed themselves to the delusions (or worse – the nefarious intentions) of President Barack Hussein Obama pertaining to Iran. AND follows through with an idiotic commitment that will end in the nuclear warhead arming of Iran, then Americans who love their Liberty more than a Left Wing utopian illusions will again arise to a decent respect for moral principles willing to pledge their sacred honor even in war to correct the wrongs of America’s most Leftist President, then:

 

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. (1st paragraph of Declaration of Independence 1776)

 

It is in light of this indomitable American spirit that I share the words of an Israeli citizen born in the USA – Caroline Glick.

Column One: A glorious defeat

 

By CAROLINE B. GLICK

July 3, 2015

Jerusalem Post

 

Over the past seven years Washington has sent a steady stream of senior officials to “oversee joint Israeli-American efforts” regarding Iran.

 

Sometimes you have to fight battles you cannot win because fighting – regardless of the outcome – advances a larger cause.

Israel’s fight against the nuclear deal the major powers, led by US President Barack Obama concluded with Iran was such a battle.

The battle’s futility became clear on July 20, just six days after it was concluded in Vienna.

On July 20, the US administration anchored the deal – which paves the way for Iran to become a nuclear power and enriches the terrorism-sponsoring ayatollahs to the tune of $150 billion – in a binding UN Security Council resolution. Once the resolution passed, the deal became unstoppable.

Most of the frozen funds that comprise the $150 [billion] would have been released regardless of congressional action. And the nonproliferation regime the US developed over the past 70 years was upended the moment the deal was concluded in Vienna.

The fight in Congress itself probably couldn’t have succeeded even if the administration hadn’t made an end run around the lawmakers at the Security Council.

After Sen. Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, passed the law obligating Obama to secure the support of a mere third of the members of either House to implement his nuclear deal, its implementation was a foregone conclusion. The US Constitution gives sole power to approve international treaties to the Senate and requires a minimum of two-thirds approval for passage. Corker turned the Constitution on its head when he went forward with his bill. Far from curbing Obama’s executive overreach, Corker gave Obama unprecedented power to enact his radical, reckless nuclear agenda.

So if the fight against the deal was doomed to fail, why did the Israeli government decide to fight it for all it was worth? And why is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu still fighting it even though there is no longer any way to stop Obama from enabling Iran to sprint across the nuclear finish line? By fighting Obama’s nuclear deal, Israel seeks to advance two larger efforts. First, it uses the battle to expand its capacity to act without the US to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Second, it is shaping its relations with the US both for the duration of Obama’s presidency and for the day after he leaves office.

As far as Iran’s nuclear program is concerned, Obama’s deal has not impacted Israel’s options for preventing the mullahs from getting the bomb.

Even before the US betrayed Israel, its Arab allies and its own national security interests and closed a deal that will transform Iran into a nuclear power and a regional hegemon, there was no chance that the Americans would take action to prevent Iran from developing atomic warheads.

That prospect was taken off the table in November 2007. The National Intelligence Estimate on Iran’s nuclear program published that month falsely – and scandalously – asserted that Tehran abandoned its nuclear weapons program at the end of 2003.

The NIE was a bureaucratic coup. CIA analysts, notorious since the 1970s for their biased and politicized analyses, used the falsified NIE to block then-president George W. Bush from dealing with Iran. After losing the public’s support for the war in Iraq, and after failing to find Saddam’s WMD (which magically fell into the hands of Islamic State 11 years after the US invasion), Bush was powerless to oppose an official assessment of the intelligence community that claimed Iran was not a nuclear proliferator.

As for Obama, in early 2008, even before he secured the Democratic presidential nomination, he announced that he wanted to negotiate with then-Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

At no time since was there any evidence supporting the notion that Obama would lift a finger to prevent Iran from going nuclear.

In other words, for the past eight years it has been apparent to everyone willing to see that Israel has but option for preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

By fighting so strenuously against Obama’s nuclear deal, Israel improved its ability to carry out a military strike against Iran’s nuclear installations in two ways.

First, it removed the most serious domestic obstacle to carrying out such a strike.

Last week’s publication of audio recordings of former defense minister Ehud Barak discussing of Iran’s nuclear program revealed that for the past several years, Israel’s military and intelligence brass have blocked operations against Iran’s nuclear installations three times. In 2010, 2011 and 2012 the IDF chief of General Staff and senior generals supported by hesitant cabinet members refused to carry out instructions they received from Netanyahu and Barak to prepare to carry out such a strike.

There is no doubt that one of the main reasons they opposed lawful instructions was their faith in Obama’s security pledges.

For their part, the Americans did their best to subvert the authority of Israel’s elected leadership.

Over the past seven years Washington has sent a steady stream of senior officials to “oversee joint Israeli-American efforts” regarding Iran. It is now obvious that this “unprecedented cooperation” was never aimed at strengthening Israel against Iran. Rather, its aim has been to erode the government’s power to make independent decisions regarding Iran’s nuclear installations.

Had Netanyahu kept his criticism of Obama’s decision to give Iran a free hand to develop nuclear weapons quiet, the generals might have shrugged their shoulders and expressed gratitude for the shiny new weapons Obama will throw at them to “compensate” for giving nukes to a regime sworn to annihilate the country.

By making his opposition public, Netanyahu alerted the nation to the dangers. The top commanders can no longer pretend that US security guarantees are credible. Now they will be forced to kick their psychological addiction to worthless American security guarantees, accept reality and act accordingly.

Better eight years late than never.

The Americans weren’t the only ones paying attention to Israel’s fight. Israel’s Arab neighbors also saw how Netanyahu and Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer left no stone unturned in their efforts to convince Democratic lawmakers to oppose it. And the regional implications are already becoming clear.

As the Saudis’ willingness to stand with Israel in public to oppose this deal has shown, our neighbors have been deeply impressed by the diplomatic courage Israel has shown. If and when Israel strikes Iran’s nuclear installations, our willingness to openly oppose the administration will weigh in our favor. It will impact our neighbors’ willingness to cooperate in action aimed at removing Iran’s nuclear sword from their necks and ours.

By fighting the deal, Israel has also worked to shape our relations with the US in a favorable way both in the short and long term.

Obama has another year and four months in office. (503 days, but who’s counting?) Even before the fight over his nuclear deal began in earnest, Obama made clear that he intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the US-Israel alliance and to weaken Israel internationally.

In the first instance, his Democratic and progressive surrogates’ anti-Semitic assaults against New York Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer, and the Justice Department’s coincidental indictment of pro-Israel New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez communicated a clear message to Democratic lawmakers: Any Democrat who supports Israel against Obama will be targeted.

By acting in this way, Obama has communicated the clear goal of transforming support for Israel into the foreign policy equivalent of opposing abortion: a Republicans-only position.

Internationally, there can be little doubt that until Obama leaves office, he will seek to harm Israel and the UN. He may as well seek to harm our economy by quietly instituting administrative trade barriers with the US and Europe.

Israel’s fight against Obama’s nuclear deal has diminished Obama’s ability to use his full power to harm it while preparing the ground for relations to be repaired under his successor.

Until Netanyahu spoke before the joint houses of Congress in March, Obama’s nuclear deal was largely outside the American discourse. The fierce public debate began only after Netanyahu’s address. True, on Wednesday Obama got the support of his 34th Democratic senator and so blocked Israel’s efforts to convince Congress to vote down the deal. But his victory will be Pyrrhic.

Obama’s success will backfire first and foremost because thanks to Netanyahu’s move to spearhead the public debate in the US, today two-thirds of Americans oppose the deal. Since Iran will waste no time proving just how devastating a mistake Obama and his fellow Democrats have just made, Obama’s success makes him far less free to enact further steps against Israel than he was before the deal was concluded. The public no longer will give him the benefit of the doubt.

Moreover, since the deal is as bad as its opponents say it is, and given that most Americans oppose it, Obama’s successor will face no impediments in canceling the deal and adopting a new policy towards Israel and Iran.

Then there are Obama’s Democratic followers in Congress.

Today some commentators argue that Obama’s victory over opponents of his nuclear deal – first and foremost AIPAC – spells the demise of the pro-Israel lobby in the US.

Thankfully, they are mistaken.

Just as it failed to prevent then-president Ronald Reagan from selling AWACs to Saudi Arabia in 1981, so AIPAC had no chance of preventing Obama from moving ahead with his Iran deal.

AIPAC has never had the power to defeat a president intent on advancing an anti-Israel policy.

We will only be able to measure AIPAC’s power after the 2016 elections.

Given that the nuclear pact will fail, there will be plenty of Democrats challengers who will be eager to use their Democratic incumbent opponents’ support for Obama’s nuclear madness against them. AIPAC’s public fight against the deal has set the conditions for it to extract a political price from its supporters who preferred Obama to US national security.

If AIPAC extracts a price from key Democratic lawmakers who played crucial roles in approving the nuclear deal with Iran, it will prevent Obama from turning support for Israel into a partisan issue and emerge strengthened from the fight.

On Wednesday, after Maryland’s Sen. Barbara Mikulski became the 34th senator to support Obama’s nuclear deal, PBS’s senior anchorwoman Gwen Ifill tweeted, “Take that, Bibi.”

Obama’s win is Bibi’s loss. Bibi failed to convince 12 Democratic senators and 44 Democratic congressmen to vote against the head of their party. But by fighting against this deal, Netanyahu removed the main obstacle that kept Israel from taking action that will prevent Iran from going nuclear. He reduced Obama’s power to harm Israel.

The fight strengthened American and American- Jewish opposition to the nuclear deal, paving the way for a Democratic renewal after Obama leaves office. And finally, Israel’s public battle against Obama’s deal paved the way its abrogation by his successor.

All in all, a rather glorious defeat.

About Caroline B. Glick

 

I grew up in Chicago’s ultra-liberal Hyde Park neighborhood. Hyde Park’s most famous resident is Barack Obama.

 

I made aliyah to Israel in 1991, two weeks after receiving my BA in Political Science from another radical liberal stronghold — Columbia University in New York, otherwise known as Beir Zeit on the Hudson.

 

I joined the Israel Defense Forces that summer and served as an officer for five and a half years.

 

From 1994-1996, as an IDF captain, I served as Coordinator of Negotiations with the PLO in the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. In this capacity I was a core member of Israel’s negotiating team with the Palestinians.

Matt Drudge

 

Yesterday Joseph Farah posted what was billed as a tribute to Matt Drudge (The Hill tribute 5/7/15).  Farah uses Paul Harvey (deceased 2009) as an example of what Matt Drudge represents to this generation of media listeners and watchers. And so in reality the tribute is to the prescience of Paul Harvey’s predictions of a future America. As Farah writes about Harvey in the middle of article entitled “If I Were the Devil …” he brings a video depiction of a Paul Harvey radio broadcast of the same title in 1965.

 

In Farah’s article I’ll provide the Youtube version of what Farah used of WND video. However, I believe I have found a better visualization of Paul Harvey’s 1965 message that is an eerily accurate prediction of today’s America.

'If I were the devil …’
 

By JOSEPH FARAH

September 3, 2015

WorldNetDaily

 

In 1965, I was 11 years old.

 

I was becoming aware of what was going on in the world.

 

My favorite news guy was Paul Harvey.

 

What was special about Paul Harvey, besides his cadence, his story-telling ability, his voice and his likeability, was his news judgment.

 

He was the Matt Drudge of his day.

 

I can’t say there came a moment while listening to Paul Harvey that I determined to become a newsman, but I’m sure he was an influence on that decision.

 

But it was in 1965, with the Vietnam War raging, riots in America’s cities and upheaval on college campuses, that I first remember hearing what became his signature broadcast.

 

It was called “If I were the devil.”

 

VIDEO: If I Were the Devil … (Youtube link closest to WND version I could find)

 

 

Posted by dlrose10's channel

Paul Harvey first broadcast the "If I Were the Devil" speech in 1965. Through the years, he updated the speech. This version was probably broadcast in the 1990s. This is the same speech from: http://youtu.be/H3Az0okaHig
 

This version adds in backgrounds to supplement the text. [Blog Editor: The quoted video description is not a part of the original WND article and the-embed is different because the similar to WND version would not allow an-embed.]

 

I was far from a Christian believer when I was a kid.

 

That commitment wouldn't come for about 11 more years, when I was in college.

 

But that broadcast stuck with me, made an impression; it is still indelibly etched in the synapses of my mind.

 

It smacked of truth.

 

Later, when I became a professional newsman, I thought about what made Paul Harvey so special, what gave him the universal appeal. It was clear to me it wasn't just the voice, the cadence of his speech and the repetition of keywords. It was much more than the style – which was artistic, original, creative and captivating. It was mostly the content – his news judgment.

 

Paul Harvey made his living sorting out the news for America – giving us a glimpse of what was really important and entertaining. Long before the Internet came along, Paul Harvey was giving us headlines we might not see in our local newspapers or hear on the network TV news.

 

And all during my many years running daily newspapers, I would often instruct my editors what I expected from them – Paul Harvey-style news judgment.

 

Paul Harvey passed away in 2009. I wondered who might take his place. Nobody did. I don't think anyone can.

 

Yes, he could tell a great story, as in "the rest of the story." But what I loved most about him was his ability to find those great little gems of news – stories that escaped the attention of so many of his colleagues.

 

I didn't really know Paul Harvey, but I felt like I did.

 

He was a part of my life for as long as I can remember.

 

Even though we never met, he was gracious to me and frequently acknowledged my work. One of my great thrills in life was hearing him promote my book "Taking America Back" to his massive listening audience as a great Christmas gift in 2003.

 

"There is a book called 'Taking America Back' – might make a real good Christmas present for the uninformed," he said. "The book is called 'Taking America Back.'"

 

Just those brief words gave my book a shot in the arm only he could give. (That's not quite true. In 2009, the presidency of Barack Obama did even more for the book.)

 

Experience more of Joseph Farah's no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore

 

But it was a total surprise when Paul Harvey made that endorsement. I had no idea it was coming. No one had pitched him. You could have knocked me over with a feather.

 

I was honored and privileged to be able to add that endorsement in the paperback edition.

 

I wish I had a chance to meet Paul Harvey before he died. I wish I had an opportunity to shake his hand. I wish I got to tell him how much he meant to me. But I guess saying it late is better than never.

 

Paul Harvey was a genius. What he brought to America in terms of daily wit and wisdom will be missed by the entire country – whether they know it or not.

 

Paul Harvey was an original – an icon, a unique personality and talent. He was bigger than life. No one who knew him had a bad word to say about him.

 

Paul Harvey would have been 97 today.

 

Good day!

There is a Stop Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal rally scheduled for September 9 in Washington DC. The two main speakers will be Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz. According to the movements advertising photo-op Glen Beck and Mark Levin will be there as well. Here’s the quote:

 

Stop Iran Rally DC is a movement led by volunteers who believe America will be worse off living in a world where the Iranian regime has nuclear weapons capabilities to menace other nations and unfettered access to the world economy to earn more money to pay more terrorists.

 

The Iranian regime is the main financial sponsor of Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Gaza’s Hamas and is responsible for the chaos in Yemen. The Syrian regime, which used chemical weapons against its own people, is also funded by Iran.

 

The world agreed to sanction this dangerous regime because it refuse to play by our rules. Nothing has changed since 1979 when it came to power.

 

As Americans, we have read this deal and don’t like what our side has brought back from their bargaining.

 

If IAEA inspectors suspect wrongdoing, why must we wait up to 24 days to inspect? If (or, rather, when) Iran breaks its commitments, after two months of talking about it, the sanctions could be re-applied — but only for new business deals. In other words, after companies from around the world rush to sign deals with Iran in the coming months, there is no “snap back” for those deals. In other words, the threat of more sanctions is hollow.

 

If you agree that America deserves a better deal, please come to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, September 9, to make our elected leaders hear your voice. (Stop Iran Rally, Washington, D.C.! Let’s March on the White House! September 9; By Editor; Stop Iran Rally; 9/3/15)

 

The organization Never Again is Now alerted me to this email via email. The authors of the email are the founders of the organization – Stanley Zir and Buddy Macy. Anytime one sees the words “Never Again” it is a reference to the Holocaust that killed nearly 6 MILLION Jews between 1939 and 1945. Out of the ravages of the Holocaust and WWII Israel was born in 1948 – not peacefully. Surrounding Arab nations sent in armies to destroy the nascent Israel and drive the Jews into the Mediterranean Sea. These Arabs were not talking about a leisurely swim, rather they were talk about another mass killing of Jews. One of the great miracles of the 20th century is that a group Jewish underground paramilitary groups managed their differences to unite and still outnumbered managed to hold off invading Arab armies to secure the Jewish State of Israel. There was not another Jewish Holocaust.  Arab nations neighboring Israel fought a total of FOUR wars between 1948 and 1974 attempting another Jewish Holocaust.

 

If you look at map. Israel is a speck on a Middle Eastern map. You can’t tell me there wasn’t any Divine intervention in that Israel won every single war including liberating all of Jerusalem from the land thieves of Jordan in 1967 who destroyed anything of Jewish heritage between then East Jerusalem and what the rest of the world calls the West Bank and what Jews who understand their heritage call Judea and Samaria in 1948-49. Thousands of years of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem was destroyed by 1949 by Jordanian occupation.

 

TODAY! Iran still makes the threat of a Jewish holocaust against Israel and in their hubris also threaten the destruction of the USA and Americans. President Barack Hussein Obama has given Iran a road map to arm with nuclear WMDs with his so-called historic deal with the crazed Twelver-Shia Islamic nation.

 

THIS CANNOT STAND!

 

This Zir and Macy email encourages ALL the Republican Candidates for POTUS (to date) to unite at this Washington DC rally against the Obama-Kerry Deal that essentially sells Western culture to an eventual nuclear with Iran. Call, write or email your Senator and Congressman to make sure they vote to OVERRIDE any Obama veto that secures his Executive Order (i.e. not a Treaty ratified by the Senate) enabling a nuclear armed Iran.

On two days' notice, Mr. Trump was able to gather 30 thousand people in a football stadium in Alabama.

All of the Republican Presidential candidates must converge on our nation's Capital on September 9, 2015 and join with frontrunner Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz to stop Obama's veto. And, all Tea Party members, American Patriots and pro-Zionists must gather there in numbers unlike anything witnessed since Martin Luther King's historic march on Washington, DC!

Op-Ed: National Emergency for America

 

By Stanley Zir

August 28, 2015 11:22 AM

Israel National News – Arutz Sheva 7

 

If this deal goes forward, America relinquishes her crown as the leader of the free world. Clear talk of the threat facing America and the world.

 

The Constitution is the guideline I will never abandon.” - George Washington

 

The United States of America was born out of a resolve to protect the freedoms of the individual from the tyranny of the state. Its Constitution was written to safeguard those freedoms at all costs - ad infinitum.  America’s Founding Fathers were excellent physicians who could fully detect the disease of tyranny in all its forms. They left the American people the Constitution as a preventive vaccine to eliminate this cancer.

Therefore, upholding the Constitution and its firm stance against tyranny or any government or enterprise, foreign or domestic that seeks to destroy the United States, its values, democracy, or “western ways” is a non-debatable issue. 

There are no parties here, no sides, and no disparities to discuss. If you are an American, as I am, the Constitution is the law of your land and it is the premier reference guide that protects Americans from those who seek to tamper with our freedoms.  

Either we stand with the Constitution’s sacred covenant of freedom, the basis upon which this republic rests, or our very foundation faces collapse.

 

Stopping the Iranian Nuclear Threat and removing the ultimate mass destructive weapon known to man from getting into the hands of a heinous, tyrannical nation, that openly threatens to destroy America, is then neither a Democratic nor a Republican issue; rather it’s a Constitutional mandate.

 

Our government must rule and abide by our Constitution whose stance against tyranny is its rule law. Congress must commit to stopping President Obama, who is acting as if he is Iran’s nuclear terrorist-enabling acolyte.

 

The Republican Debate
 
Let’s face it; the Republican debate was a side- show extravaganza. A lot of entertainment was provided with a juggling of theories and elixirs for the most common social and economic ailments. The one obvious omittance was a serious discussion about Iranian’s nuclear threat. Not one candidate made stopping President Obama’s veto a top priority.

 

With less than 20 days left to defeat Obama’s veto, it is obvious these candidates have already abandoned their pledge (if elected) to uphold the Constitution’s stance against tyranny. Instead they are treading lightly in shark-infested waters while Obama is waving the white flag of surrender to Iran.

 

Even though the election is still 15 months away, at which point the Iranian deal and its veto will be a moot point, these candidates are not displaying the sense of urgency necessary. No one is breaking from the pack as the conscientious leader and saying, “Let’s put our collective heads together and get this business done first for the good of the country and the world.”  The first candidate to do that has my vote.

 

The Republican Party has never made stopping Iran their top priority, before or after the deal was made. Overriding President Obama’s veto might be their last chance to save our country. What will our future be if Iran gets access to the bomb a year before the elections in 2016?

  

Mr. Trump, as the front runner who is proposing to make America great again, you must realize that honoring a deal that cedes victory to Iran and Islamic fascism over our Constitution means we have relinquished what makes us great and exceptional among nations. It is only through the commitment against tyranny and enforcement of our Constitution that our country thrives with capitalism and free markets; not the other way around. As one of the most successful businessmen in our country, you know the importance of a good business plan. The Constitution is the preeminent business plan for a free nation.

 

The business of America is to establish, support, and defend the contents of its Constitution, at all costs. Obama’s deal with Iran is in direct conflict with our Constitution in that we are not only negotiating with a tyranny that consistently promotes its hatred of our freedoms, but we are aiding and abetting that tyranny in its quest to obtain a nuclear bomb.

 

If this deal goes forward, America relinquishes her crown as the leader of the free world. Can she ever be trusted again to keep the flame of liberty lit from those who are bent on extinguishing it?

 

Mr. Trump, if we have to wait 15 months to put your plan in action, how do you propose to make America great again if you don’t lead the charge to stop Obama’s veto?

 

For a dozen years, I have been writing the same screed over and over. “It’s Iran, you blind imbeciles!”  It’s not Obamacare! It’s not Isis! It’s not the Muslim Brotherhood, Russia, or China! It’s not the ceiling debt or Hillary. Even the illegal immigration issue must take a back seat to the Iranian threat. 

There will be time later to build Trump’s wall and seal the border, but if we don’t eliminate Iran’s ability to obtain nuclear weapons, we won’t have to worry about a wall, or immigrants, or anchor babies. The politicians are being diverted while Iran’s end game is to run out the clock. Congress wants to put out campfires as the whole forest is burning down around us. 

President Obama confirmed Iran is, at most, six months away from enriching enough nuclear fuel for an atomic bomb and that walking away from the deal would render any sanctions useless. Overlooked is the fact that there is no repeal process unlike Obamacare, once Iran holds nuclear weapons.

 

Meanwhile Russia and China will have sufficiently armed Iran to protect their own oil interests and the European Union will have secured lucrative financial deals with Iran to guard its vital interests.

So, as all the other self-satisfying nations are bartering their economic and political securities with tyrannical madmen,  America must remain the only sensible “voice of reason” as the leader of the free world; the court of last resort

Overriding Obama’s veto, however, is only half the story. Without coupling the veto with the destruction of Iran's nuclear capabilities, it is only a piece of paper. Additionally crippling sanctions at that point would be useless.

 

What other assurance is there that the world is not threatened by an indiscriminate nuclear attack? If Iran crosses the nuclear threshold there will be no safe haven left in the free world. We will find ourselves at the mercy of Iranian madmen armed with nuclear devices.

 

For the sake of our Union, all Republican Party candidates must temporarily put their differences aside and unite to stop Obama's veto, then call for the destruction of Iran’s nuclear capacity.

 

The successful candidate for the next position of Commander and Chief must be able to awaken the American people to the fact that the greatest threat to our nation, our economy and the future of the world is the Iranian Nuclear terrorist threat. Stopping Obama’s veto now must be their top priority.

"This summer is a call to action. If you’re like me and you’re not really ready, continue to prepare, because mark my words, never again is right now." -Glenn Beck

 

This summer Mercury One helped launch the start of a new movement, Never Again Is Now. Asking "What will unite us?" Glenn Beck revealed his calling to act against the genocides in the Middle East and mobilize our nation towards the efforts to provide aid for the refugees, support for the suppressed, and to show the world that Americans will not stand idle to the terror.

 

WHY NOW?

 

The brutality and injustice happening in the Middle East is not something that is hidden from the world. It is posted daily to social media and strung across news headlines, yet as a country, we have averted our eyes, choosing to do nothing. But it is now that we are called to be brave, to face the atrocities and say NEVER AGAIN.

CALLING THE NATION

 

We want to encourage you to take action. These victims are crying out to God and looking to America for compassion. Now is the time we step out of our comfort zones and READ THE REST

Quotes about Islam

 

My Fellow Kafirs

 


This is a massive compendium of quotes I've been able to gather about Islam. (Be advised, it is a lengthy read.) I have gathered quotes from Muslims, ex-Muslims, Presidents, Prime Ministers, politicians, historians, scholars, authors, writers, journalists, activists, and all manner of famous public figures. I think this is enough to convince even the most closed minded and brainwashed Islamopologist to change their mind and see Islam for what it really is. Feel free to share it or save it to a word document.

If you find the time to read it, I hope you enjoy it.

 

"Muhammad is a narcissist, a pedophile, a mass murderer, a terrorist, a misogynist, a lecher, a cult leader, a madman, a rapist, a torturer, an assassin and a looter."
 - Ali Sina 
Iranian ex-Muslim, founder of Faith-Freedom International, a grass-roots movement of ex-Muslims. (In 2001, he offered a reward of $50,000 to anyone who could disprove his claim using the Islamic texts. The reward remains unclaimed.)


“I came to the absolute conviction that it is impossible… impossible …for any human being to read the biography of Mohammed and believe in it, and then emerge a psychologically and mentally healthy person.” 
 - Dr. Wafa Sultan
Syrian born ex-Muslim, psychiatrist and author.


"O Muslims, Islam was never for a day the religion of peace! Islam is the religion of war... Mohammed was ordered to wage war until Allah is worshipped alone... He himself left to fight and took part in dozens of battles. He never for a day grew tired of war. “
 - Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi 
Leader of Islamic State, holds a BA, MA, and PhD in Islamic studies from the Islamic University of Baghdad.


"Muslims, whether they live in Pakistan or India, Nigeria or Syria, whether they are poor or rich, illiterate or educated, their only goal is to destroy the whole nation by terrorism, bomb blasts, population explosion, riots and jihad in the name of Islam."
 - Sir Salman Rushdie
Indian-British ex-Muslim, novelist and essayist, author of "The Satanic Verses." The target of a notorious fatwa issued by Ayatollah Khomeini, his bounty has since increased to $3,300,000.


"Every Continental under the age of 40 - make that 60, if not 75 - is all but guaranteed to end his days living in an Islamified Europe. Native populations on the continent are aging and fading and being supplanted remorselessly by a young Muslim demographic."


"Why did Bosnia collapse into the worst slaughter in Europe since the second World War? In the thirty years before the meltdown, Bosnian Serbs had declined from 43 percent to 31 percent of the population, while Bosnian Muslims had increased from 26 percent to 44 percent. In a democratic age, you can't buck demography—except through civil war. The Serbs figured that out, as other Continentals will in the years ahead: if you cannot outbreed the enemy, cull 'em. The problem that Europe faces is that Bosnia's demographic profile is now the model for the entire continent."


"Multiculturalism means that the worst attributes of Muslim culture - the subjugation of women - combine with the worst attributes of Western culture - license and self-gratification. I am not a racist, only a culturist. I believe Western culture - rule of law, universal suffrage - is preferable to Arab culture."
 - Mark Steyn
Canadian writer, author, conservative political commentator.


"There is a demographic catastrophe happening in Europe that nobody wants to talk about, that we daren't bring up because we are so cagey about not offending people racially. And rightly we should be. But there is a cultural thing as well. By 2020, 50 per cent of the children in Holland under the age of 18 will be of Muslim descent. I think that Tolkien says that some generations will be challenged. And if they do not rise to meet that challenge, they will lose their civilisation. That does have a real resonance with me."
 - John Rhys-Davies
Welsh Hollywood movie actor.


“The fall in the (German) population can no longer be stopped. Its downward spiral is no longer reversible... It will be a Muslim state by the year 2050."
 - Walter Rademacher
Director General of Eurostat, speaking with the Federal Statistics Office of Germany, in 2006.


"There are signs that Allah will grant victory to Islam in Europe, without swords, without guns, without conquest. We don't need terrorists. We don't need homicide bombers. The 50 million Muslims in Europe will turn it into an Islamic continent, within a few decades."
 - Muammar al-Gaddafi (speech on 10th April 2006)
Leader of Libya from 1969-2011


"I have tried my best with this religion, which is as foreign to me, as to the many millions who will always doubt, that god entrusted a nonreader, through an intermediary, with the demanding call to read. Islam in its origins is just as shady and approximate as those from which it took its borrowings. It makes immense claims for itself, invokes prostrate submission or 'surrender' as a maxim to its adherents, and demands deference and respect from non-believers into the bargain. There is nothing, absolutely nothing in its teachings that can even begin to justify such arrogance and presumption."


"Don't waste my time with Islam - it's bullshit."


"All the time, all the time, we have to hear propaganda pumped out of radio stations all over the Muslim world, telling children to kill Jews, telling children to kill Hindus, telling children to kill Christians, telling them that their sisters, and mothers, and aunts are inferior, telling them that homosexuals should be stoned. We have to read, and claim not to be offended, by the stoning of ten people in the Islamic republic of Iran... for crimes they did not commit, that would not be crimes, except under the mad religious laws that Islam proposes."


"Ladies and gentlemen, I beseech you. Resist it while you still can, and before the right to complain is taken away from you, which will be the next thing... you will be told: You can't complain, because you're "Islamophobic". The term is already being introduced into the culture, as if it was an accusation of race hatred, for example, or bigotry, whereas it's only the objection to the preachings of a very extreme and absolutist religion."
Christopher Hitchens
English-American author, atheist, journalist, columnist and literary critic. (13 April 1949 – 15 December 2011).


"Islam is not a religion, it's an ideology, the ideology of a retarded culture. I have a problem with Islamic tradition, culture, ideology. Not with Muslim people. I don't hate Muslims. I hate Islam."


"The Qur'an is an inspiration for intolerance, murder, and terror... a fascist book that incites violence. That is why this book, just like (Adolf Hitler's) Mein Kampf, must be banned."


"Take a walk down the street and see where this is going. You no longer feel like you are living in your own country. There is a battle going on and we have to defend ourselves."
 - Geert Wilders
Dutch lawmaker, politician, leader of the Dutch Freedom Party, director of Fitna.


“Islam is not a race, ethnicity, or nationality: It’s a set of ideas. Criticism of these ideas should never be confused with an animus toward people. And yet it is. I'm convinced that this is often done consciously, strategically, and quite cynically as a means of shutting down conversation [on] important topics.”


“We have to be able to criticize bad ideas. And Islam is the mother lode of bad ideas.


“To speak specifically of our problem with the Muslim world, we are meandering into a genuine clash of civilizations, and we’re deluding ourselves with euphemisms. We’re talking about Islam being a "religion of peace" that’s been "hijacked" by extremists. If ever there was a religion that’s not a religion of peace, it is Islam."


"Extremism is not a problem if your core beliefs are truly non-violent. The problem isn't fundamentalism. We often hear this said; these are euphemisms... The only problem with Islamic fundamentalism, are the fundamentals of Islam."
"It is time we admitted that we are not at war with "terrorism". We are at war with Islam."
 - Sam Harris
American author, neuroscientist, atheist, philosopher, writer.


"Child marriage in Islam is permissible. In the Koran there is no specific age of marriage... [If the government imposed new laws against child marriage] There will be violent conflict from the Muslims, saying that 'no, we will not accept this, we'd rather die than accept something which is not a law from Allah."


"Nigeria has many uncountable problems and none of them is early marriage. As a matter of fact early marriage (is) the solution to about half of our problems. For those who wonder if I can give my daughter(s) out in marriage at the age of 9 or 13, I tell you most honestly, I can give her out at the age of 6 if I want to and it’s not your business. This is because I am a Muslim and I follow the example of the best of mankind - Muhammad."
 - Ahmed Sani Yerima
Former governor and current senator of Zamfara State, Nigeria.


"Banning child marriage will cause challenging the marriage of the holy prophet of Islam, who also married minor Ayesha, when she was just eight years old. The new law [seeking to ban child marriages] initiated by the current government [of Bangladesh] will put the moral character of the prophet into controversy and challenge. Islam permits child marriage and it will not be tolerated if any ruler will ever try to touch this issue in the name of giving more rights to women."
 - Mufti Fazlul Haque Amini
Islamic Scholar and politician from Bangladesh, an MP on the Parliament of Bangladesh from 2002 to 2007. He was an expert in the fields of Islamic jurisprudence (fiqh), hadith and tasawwuf. (1943–2012).


"Because this happened to the Prophet, we cannot tell people that it is prohibited to marry at an early age."
 - Sheikh Hamoud Hashim al-Tharihi
General Secretary of the Vice and Virtue Committee and member of the Islah Party in Yemen.


"A nine-year-old girl has the same sexual capacities like a woman of twenty and over. The marriage of nine-year-old girls is not forbidden because according to the Hadith (the Prophet Mohammed's sayings), Mohammed married Aisha when she was only seven-years-old and he consummated his union when she was nine."
 - Sheikh Mohamed Ben Abderrahman Al-Maghraoui
Moroccan preacher of Islam.


"It is incorrect to say that it's not permitted to marry off girls who are 15 and younger. A girl aged 10 or 12 can be married. Those who think she's too young are wrong and they are being unfair to her."
 - Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh
Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia.


"You can have a marriage contract even with a 1-year-old girl, not to mention a girl of 9, 7 or 8. But is the girl ready for sex or not? What is the appropriate age for sex for the first time? This varies according to environment and tradition."

"Localized grooming... that refers primarily to groups of Muslim men, who will seek out, find, and then sexually exploit, rape and pimp out young girls, very young girls, between the ages of about eleven and twelve and fifteen, and then use them for sex and for money.

 
The only reliable statistics come through the courts, and that's the history of convictions, and what they show is that about ninety percent, in fact ninety one percent, of the men convicted are Muslim. Now if you then consider that Muslims officially account for roughly four percent of the British population, if you do the statistics on that, that seems to suggest... that a Muslim man is about two hundred times more likely than a non-Muslim man to commit this crime. The ratio is as steep as that. It is very serious, and it is very difficult to get Muslim organisations to condemn this formally... seventy five percent of those mosques refused to do so..."

"This is a vile culture and if you think for a second that it's willing to just live in the sands of God's armpit... you've got another thing coming. They want to come and live right where you live, and they think that you're evil. Extremism believes that it’s okay to strap bombs onto your children and send them to paradise, and whatever else, and to behead people... Your dog, however, can walk side by side, your dog is allowed to have its own dog house... You can send your dog to school to learn tricks, sit, beg, do all that stuff - none of the women have that advantage."

"Islam is a serious threat to everyone's freedom, especially if they're female, or Jewish, or gay, and it has brought absolutely nothing of value to Western society, all it has done is take, and complain, and cause trouble, and it has made us less tolerant, less civilized, less safe, and less free.


If our society is to survive with its core values intact - freedom of speech, freedom of identity, and lots of other essential, healthy, civilized freedoms - then Islam needs to be vigorously and specifically legislated out of all public influence, in all Western countries, permanently."
 - Pat Condell
Irish writer, standup comedian, and internet atheist personality.


“Asked whether suicide bombing can be justified as a measure to defend Islam, 26 percent of American Muslims age eighteen to twenty-nine said yes. That is one quarter of the adult American Muslims under the age of thirty, and no matter how you count the number of Muslims in America (estimates vary from 2 million to 8 million), that is a lot of people.”


“To be blunt, their [Western] efforts to assist Muslims and other minorities are futile because, by postponing or at best prolonging the process of their transition to modernity — by creating the illusion that one can hold on to tribal norms and at the same time become a successful citizen — the proponents of multiculturalism lock subsequent generations born in the West into a no-man’s-land of moral values. What comes packaged in a compassionate language of acceptance is really a cruel form of racism. And it is all the more cruel because it is expressed in sugary words of virtue.”


“There are many good men and women in the West who try to resettle refugees, scold their fellow citizens for not doing more, donate money to philanthropic organizations, and strive to eliminate discrimination. They lobby governments to exempt minorities from the standards of behaviour of Western societies; they fight to help minorities preserve their cultures, and they excuse their religion from critical scrutiny. These people mean well, I have no doubt. But I believe that their well-intentioned activism is now a part of the very problem they seek to solve.”

Current President of Turkey.


"As a universal religion, Islam envisages a global political order in which all humankind will live under Muslim rule as either believers or subject communities. In order to achieve this goal it is incumbent on all free, male, adult Muslims to carry out an uncompromising struggle 'in the path of Allah,' or jihad. This in turn makes those parts of the world that have not yet been conquered by the House of Islam an abode of permanent conflict (Dar al-Harb, the house of War) which will only end with Islam's eventual triumph."

International Islamist and terrorist organisation now operating overtly and covertly in over 100 countries around the world, including the United States. The Brotherhood is a global umbrella organisation and has lead to the creation of Al Qaeda, Hamas, the Council on American Islamic Relations, the Muslim American Society, the Muslim Students Association, the Holy Land Foundation, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Society of Britain, as well as countless other front groups. Many of these front groups were listed as un-indicted co-conspirators during the Holy Land Foundation Terror Funding Trial in 2008, and designated as terrorist organisations, yet continue to operate freely today.

 - Hassan Al-Banna
Founder and first General Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. (14 October 1906 – 12 February 1949).


"The process of settlement is a Civilization-Jihadist Process with all the word means. The Brotherhood must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within, sabotaging its miserable house by their own hands, and the hands of the believers, so that it is eliminated - and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions."


 - Mission statement of the Muslim Brotherhood in America
Taken from "The Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goals of the Group," dated May 22nd 1991, this plan was written by one of the top Muslim Brothers in the United States, Mohammed Akram, in reference to the 29 like-minded "organizations of our friends" (Muslim Brotherhood front groups) that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and transforming the United States into a Muslim nation.


"Those who believe that Islam can flourish and be victorious without Jihad, fighting, and blood are deluded and have no understanding of the nature of this religion."

"Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the Jews people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler, by means of all the things he did to them - even though they exaggerated this issue - he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hands of the believers."
 - Imam Yusuf Al-Qaradawi
Spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.


"You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. The Mohammedan religion [Islam] too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness? Had Charles Martel not been victorious at Poitiers - already, you see, the world had already fallen into the hands of the Jews, so gutless a thing Christianity - then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies the heroism and which opens up the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world. Christianity alone prevented them from doing so."

"...It [Islam] is a belief system that mandates warfare against unbelievers for the purpose of establishing a societal model that is absolutely incompatible with Western society... because of media and general government unwillingness to face the sources of Islamic terrorism these things remain largely unknown."


"Our whole political discourse about these issues is deformed by this denial and wilful ignorance, and so it must end. I ask you whatever your situation, whatever your activities, whatever you are doing in life, however politically involved you are, that you do not allow the political candidates you support, of either party, to continue with this suicidal denial and wilful ignorance, and that we together begin to demand of those who represent us that they speak realistically about this threat, and deal with it realistically, and formulate honest and effective ways to contain it, because it can be done. It is not as if we have to sit back and watch them grow. But, this unreality is going to be the death of us, if we do not dispel it. And right now, that is absolutely our responsibility - nobody else is going to do it for us. It is up to us in whatever our situation, to tell our friends, tell our neighbors - inform everyone around us of what is really going on, and work to dispel this folly."
 - Robert Spencer
American author, critic of Islam and creator of Jihad Watch. Banned from entering the United Kingdom.


"America also failed to recognize this hatred throughout all the attacks launched against it, beginning with the marine barracks bombing in Beirut in 1983 all the way up to September 11, 2001. It was that horrible day that made Americans finally ask, What is jihad? And why do they hate us? I have a very simple answer for them: Because you are infidels."

 
"We, as infidels in the eyes of our enemy, need to understand the danger we face: A totalitarian ideology – whether its origin is mainstream or marginal – threatens to enslave, dominate, and murder us in order to realize its vision for global conquest."

"We have an enemy that is not at the gates, we have an enemy that is in the gates. And we must stand strong and resolute to defeat this enemy. This is an enemy that has been fighting against Western civilization for almost fourteen hundred years. Trace it back... dig up Charles Martel, who defeated them at the Battle of Tours, in 732. Talk to the Venetian sailors, at the Battle of Lepanto 1571. Talk to the Germanic and the Polish knights at the Gates of Vienna, 1683. This is just a new chapter in an ongoing battle for freedom and liberty, against one of the most vicious, vile and violent ideologies that the world has ever known. And if we don't have men and women on Capitol Hill and in the White House, that will clearly identify this enemy, then we're not going to be successful."

Retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, former member of the United States House of Representatives, member of the Republican Party.


"These future United States presidents questioned the ambassador as to why his (Islamic) government was so hostile to the new American republic even though America had done nothing to provoke any such animosity. Ambassador Adja answered them, as they reported to the Continental Congress, ‘that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise."
– Thomas Jefferson
U.S. president addressing the Continental Congress about the brutal pirate attacks of the Muslim Ottoman Barbary (1801–1805 and 1815).


"During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king, the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today nobody can find in them any “social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influence. There are such “social values” today in Europe, America, and Australia only because during those thousand years the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do – that is, to beat back the Moslem invader."
– Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt
26th President of the United States


"The command to propagate the Moslem creed by the sword is always obligatory, when it can be made effective… by fraud, or by force.


In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic Law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle.


He (Muhammad) poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. The essence of his doctrine was violence and lust: to exalt the brutal over the spiritual part of human nature."
– John Quincy Adams
American statesman who served as the sixth President of the United States from 1825 to 1829.


"Nor can the Plundering of Infidels be in that sacred Book [the Qur'an] forbidden, since it is well known from it, that God has given the World, and all that it contains, to his faithful Mussulmen, who are to enjoy it of Right as fast as they conquer it."
– Benjamin Franklin
American revolutionary, diplomat, inventor and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States (January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790).


"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.


A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.


Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities – but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."
– Sir Winston Churchill, 1899.
British Conservative politician and statesman, Prime Minister of Great Britain during the Second World War.


“The Quran… an accursed book. So long as there is this book, there will be no peace in the world.”

Prime Minister of the United Kingdom four times between 1868 and 1894 (1809–1898).


"The penalty for apostasy in Islamic law is death. Islam is conceived as a polity, not just as a religious community. It follows therefore that apostasy is treason. It is a withdrawal, a denial of allegiance as well as of religious belief and loyalty. Any sustained and principled opposition to the existing regime or order almost inevitably involves such a withdrawal."
– Bernard Lewis
British-American historian, scholar in Oriental studies, and political commentator.


"Over a billion people believe in Allah without truly knowing what Allah supposedly stands for or what he really demands of them. And the minority that do understand continue to be Moslems because they have redefined their morality and ethics to fit within the teachings of Islam, which are floridly lacking in morality. They therefore redefine what is good and evil in order to fit their lives into what is preached by Islam, instead of examining Islam to see if it fits within the good life. Backwards thinking, imposed by a backward religion."
– Professor Bertrand Russell
British philosopher, logician, mathematician, historian, and social critic (18 May 1872 – 2 February 1970).


"Some, indeed, dream of an Islam in the future, rationalised and regenerate. All this has been tried already, and has miserably failed. The Koran has so encrusted the religion in a hard unyielding casement of ordinances and social laws, that if the shell be broken the life is gone. A rationalistic Islam would be Islam no longer.


The contrast between our own faith and Islam is most remarkable. There are in our Scriptures living germs of truth, which accord with civil and religious liberty, and will expand with advancing civilisation. In Islam it is just the reverse. The Koran has no such teaching as with us has abolished polygamy, slavery, and arbitrary divorce, and has elevated woman to her proper place. As a Reformer, Mahomet did advance his people to a certain point, but as a Prophet he left them fixed immovably at that point for all time to come.


The tree (of Islam) is of artificial planting. Instead of containing within itself the germ of growth and adaptation to the various requirements of time and clime and circumstance, expanding with the genial sunshine and rain from heaven, it remains the same forced and stunted thing as when first planted some twelve centuries ago."
– Sir William Muir
Scottish Orientalist, scholar of Islam, and colonial administrator (27 April 1819 – 11 July 1905).


"Muslims are the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain others in the practice of this religion by terror. To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him."
– Joseph Ernest Renan
French expert of Middle East ancient languages and civilizations (28 February 1823 – 2 October 1892).


"I studied the Qur'an a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Muhammad. So far as I can see, it is the principal cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself."
 - Alexis de Tocqueville, - letter to Arthur de Gobineau, 1843.
French political thinker and historian. (29 July 1805 – 16 April 1859).


"Consider the Koran…this wretched book was sufficient to start a world-religion, to satisfy the metaphysical need of countless millions for twelve hundred years, to become the basis of their morality and of a remarkable contempt for death, and also to inspire them to bloody wars and the most extensive conquests. In this book we find the saddest and poorest form of theism. Much may be lost in translation, but I have not been able to discover in it one single idea of value."
 - Arthur Schopenhauer
German philosopher (22 February 1788 – 21 September 1860). 


"Without demolishing religious schools (madrasas) and minarets (mosques) and without abandoning the beliefs and ideas of the medieval age, restriction in thoughts and pains in conscience will not end. Without understanding that unbelief is a kind of religion, and that conservative religious belief a kind of disbelief, and without showing tolerance to opposite ideas, one cannot succeed. Those who look for the truth will accomplish the mission."
– Mevlana Jalal ad-Din Rumi
Persian Sufi poet and philosopher. Sufi’s have been outlawed and persecuted for seven centuries in the Islamic world (1207 – 17 December 1273).


"If the people of this religion are asked about the proof for the soundness of their religion, they flare up, get angry and spill the blood of whoever confronts them with this question. They forbid rational speculation, and strive to kill their adversaries. This is why truth became thoroughly silenced and concealed."
 - Muhammad ibn Zakariyā Rāzī
Persian polymath, physician, alchemist and chemist, philosopher and important figure in the history of medicine.


"Do not suppose the statements of the prophets to be true; they are all fabrications. Men lived comfortably till they came and spoiled life. The sacred books are only such a set of idle tales as any age could have and indeed did actually produce. They recite their sacred books, although the fact informs me that these are fiction from first to last. O Reason, thou (alone) speakest the truth. Then perish the fools who forged the religious traditions or interpreted them!"
– Al-Ma’arri
11th Century blind Arab philosopher, poet and writer. He labelled religions in general as “noxious weeds” and lay claim that Islam does not have a monopoly on truth.


"Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached. God is not pleased by blood – and not acting reasonably is contrary to God’s nature. Faith is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats… To convince a reasonable soul, one does not need a strong arm, or weapons of any kind, or any other means of threatening a person with death."
– Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Palaiologos
Conversation between the Emperor and a Persian scholar, 1391.


"If Muslim people do not change their mind in spite of the changes of social conditions, and if we supplement Islamic courtesy and law without explaining and advertising real Islamic beliefs at the same time, then it is impossible to save the minds of the people."
– Ma Fuxiang
Chinese military and political leader spanning the Qing Dynasty.


"… The point is clear in the case of Muhammad. He seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh goads us. His teaching also contained precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as is not unexpected, he was obeyed by carnal men. As for proofs of the truth of his doctrine, he brought forward only such as could be grasped by the natural ability of anyone with a very modest wisdom.


Nor do divine pronouncements on the part of preceding prophets offer him [Muhammad] any witness. On the contrary, he perverts almost all the testimonies of the Old and New Testaments by making them into fabrications of his own, as can be seen by anyone who examines his law. It was, therefore, a shrewd decision on his part to forbid his followers to read the Old and New Testaments, lest these books convict him of falsity. It is thus clear that those who place any faith in his words believe foolishly.

 
Indeed, the truths that he [prophet Muhammad] taught he mingled with many fables and with doctrines of the greatest falsity. He did not bring forth any signs produced in a supernatural way, which alone fittingly gives witness to divine inspiration; for a visible action that can be only divine reveals an invisibly inspired teacher of truth. On the contrary, Muhammad said that he was sent in the power of his arms—which are signs not lacking even to robbers and tyrants. What is more, no wise men, men trained in things divine and human, believed in him from the beginning. Those who believed in him were brutal men and desert wanderers, utterly ignorant of all divine teaching, through whose numbers Muhammad forced others to become his followers by the violence of his arms."

Italian Dominican friar and Catholic priest and an immensely influential philosopher and theologian in the tradition of scholasticism (1225 – 7 March 1274).

"The brotherhood of Islam is not the universal brotherhood of man. It is brotherhood of Muslims for Muslims only. There is a fraternity but its benefit is confined to those within that corporation. For those who are outside the corporation, there is nothing but contempt, slavery and enmity."
– Dr. B.R. Ambedkar
Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956).


"This is a profession of faith of a Muslim: ‘I certify that there is no God other than Allah, of whom Mohammed is the only prophet’, which means in effect: After and before Mohammed, there is nobody else…Thus the whole religion of Islam is based on negation: 'Nobody but us, no other religion but ours’. And if you disagree, you shall die. This puts a serious limitation to tolerance and from this strong belief sprang all the horrors of the Muslim invasion of India.


Let it be said right away: the massacres perpetrated by Muslims in India are unparalleled in history, bigger than the holocaust of the Jews by the Nazis; or the massacre of the Armenians by the Turks; more extensive even than the slaughter of the South American native populations by the invading Spanish and Portuguese in early days of America."
– Francois Gautier
French writer and journalist based in India.


"The Islamic conquest of India is probably the bloodiest story in history. It is a discouraging tale, for its evident moral is that civilization is a precious good, whose delicate complex of order and freedom, culture and peace, can at any moment be overthrown by barbarians invading from without or multiplying within."
– Will Durant
American writer, historian, and philosopher (November 5, 1885 – November 7, 1981).


"From the time Muslims started arriving, around 632 AD, the history of India becomes a long, monotonous series of murders, massacres, spoliations, and destructions."
– Alain Danielou
French historian, intellectual, musicologist, Indologist (4 October 1907 – 27 January 1994).


"...the number of victims of the persecutions of Hindus by Muslims is easily of the same order of magnitude as that of the Nazi extermination policy, though no one has yet made the effort of tabulating the reported massacres and proposing a reasonable estimate of how many millions exactly must have died in the course of the Islamic campaign against Hinduism (such research is taboo). On top of these there is a similar number of abductions and deportations to harems and slave-markets, as well as centuries of political oppression and cultural destruction..."


"The Muslim conquests, down to the 16th century, were for the Hindus a pure struggle of life and death. Entire cities were burnt down and the populations massacred, with hundreds of thousands killed in every campaign, and similar numbers deported as slaves. Every new invader made (often literally) his hills of Hindus skulls. Thus, the conquest of Afghanistan in the year 1000 was followed by the annihilation of the Hindu population; the region is still called the Hindu Kush, i.e. Hindu slaughter."

"….eighty million were slaughtered and millions of women were raped... ...it was standard practice for Islamic warlords like Ghori and Ghazni to unleash the mass rape and enslavement of hundreds of thousands of women after the slaughter of all males.


An extremely large percentage of Muslims in South Asia today are the progeny of forcible conversions and systematic rape campaigns by marauding Muslim invaders."
– Dr. Younis Shaikh
Pakistani medical doctor, human rights activist and freethinker.


"The Muslim heroes who figure larger than life in our history books committed many dreadful crimes. Mahmud of Ghazni, Qutb-ud-Din Aibak, Balban, Mohammed bin Qasim, and Sultan Mohammad Tughlak, all have blood-stained hands that the passage of years has not cleansed. Indeed, the presence of Muslim historians on their various campaigns has ensured that the memory of their deeds will live long after they were buried…..Seen through Hindu eyes, the Muslim invasion of their homeland was an unmitigated disaster."
– Irfan Husain
Pakistani columnist and writer for Dawn.


"The inner Muslim feeling of hatred against ‘unbelievers’ has spring up naked and unashamed…. We have seen, revived, as guide in practical politics, the old Muslim religion of the sword…. In thinking of an independent India, the menace of Mohammedan rule has to be considered."
– Annie Besant
British socialist, theosophist, women’s rights activist, writer and orator. Party member of the Indian National Congress (1 October 1847 – 20 September 1933).


"Religious harmony is a desirable thing. But it takes two to play the game. Unfortunately such a sentiment holds no position in Islamic theology."
– Ram Swarup
Independent Hindu thinker and prolific author (1920 – 26 December 1998)


"Pakistan and Bangladesh are their fixed deposits. Those are Islamic states. No one else can lay claim on them. India is a joint account. Plunder it as much as you please."
– Shiv Prasad Roy
Indian Bengali writer.


"I have devoted most of my time during the last six months to the study of Muslim History and Muslim Law and I am inclined to think that Hindu-Muslim unity is neither possible nor practicable… I do honestly and sincerely believe in the necessity and desirability of Hindi-Muslim unity. I am also fully prepared to trust the Muslim leaders, but what about the injunctions of the Koran and Hadiths. The leaders cannot override them."
– Lala Lajpat Rai
Indian Punjabi author and politician who is chiefly remembered as a leader in the Indian fight for independence (28 January 1865 – 17 November 1928).


"If we go by the lessons of history we have to accept that the goal of the Hindu-Muslim unity is a mirage. When Muslims first entered India, they looted the country, destroyed the temples, broke the idols, raped the women and heaped innumerable indignities on the people of this country. Today it appears that such noxious behavior has entered the bone marrow of Muslims. Unity can be achieved among equals…. I am of the view that Hindu-Muslim unity, which could not be achieved during the last thousand years, will not materialize during the ensuing thousand years."
– Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay
Bengali novelist and short story writer (15 September 1876 – 16 January 1938).


"A very important factor which is making it almost impossible for Hindu-Muslim unity to become an accomplished fact is that the Muslims cannot confine their patriotism to any one country. I had frankly asked many Muslims whether, in the event of any Mohammedan power invading India, they would stand side by side with their Hindu neighbours to defend their common motherland, I was not satisfied with the reply I got from them."
– Rabindranath Tagore
Bengali polymath and Nobel Prize winner in Literature who reshaped Bengali literature and music, as well as Indian art (7 May 1861 – 7 August 1941).


"Add the African victims. The Indian victims. The European victims. Add in the Armenian genocide. Then add in the lesser known, but no doubt quite large number of victims of Eastern Asia. Add in the jihad committed by Muslims against China, which was invaded in 651 AD. Add in the Crimean Khanate predations on the Slavs, especially their women.


Though the numbers are not clear, what is obvious is that Islam is the greatest murder machine in history bar none, possibly exceeding 250 million dead. Possibly one-third to one-half or more of all those killed by war or slavery in history can be traced to Islam; and this is just a cursory examination.


Now consider the over 125 Million women today who have been genitally mutilated for Islamic honor's sake. Unlike the 20th-century totalitarians whose killing fury consumed themselves, reducing their longevity, Islam paces itself. In the end, though slower, Islam has killed and tortured far more than any other creed, religious or secular. Unlike secular tyranny, Islam, by virtue of its polygamy and sexual predations, reproduces itself and increases. Other tyrannies are furious infections, which burn hot, but are soon overcome. Islam is a slow terminal cancer, which metastasizes, and takes over. It never retreats. Its methods are more insidious, often imperceptible at first, driven by demographics. Like cancer, excision may be the only cure."

 - Mohammed (Sahih Bukhari, 4:52.220)
Founder and self-proclaimed “prophet" of Islam.

Spell check was used. When the quote was attributed to an American author I Americanized the spelling. British authors and English translations of Muslim quotes I retained ‘Civilization Jihad Awareness’’ British spelling.
