White House Working with Hollywood on Bin Laden Movie to be Released One Month Before Election

Comments Off

Does this man have no shame and put himself ahead of everything?
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee has called for an investigation into reports that the Obama administration is granting Sony Pictures and director Kathryn Bigelow “high-level access” for a film about the Navy SEAL operation which killed Osama Bin Laden. The movie is scheduled for release one month before the 2012 presidential election.

New York Republican Rep. Peter King sent a letter Tuesday to Defense Department Inspector General Gordon Heddell and CIA Inspector General David Buckley, expressing his concern about declassifying sensitive information for pure entertainment.

“The administration’s first duty in declassifying material is to provide full reporting to Congress and the American people, in an effort to build public trust through transparency of government,” he wrote. “In contrast, this alleged collaboration belies a desire of transparency in favor of a cinematographic view of history.”

In his letter, Rep. King noted that the mission was successful because it was extremely covert, and that providing “high-level access” to a Hollywood filmmaker runs contrary to that effort.

“Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen stated that ‘It is time to stop talking,’ as ‘We have gotten to a point where we are close to jeopardizing the precision capability that we have, and we can’t afford to do that. This fight isn’t over,’” King wrote.

“Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates stated that ‘Too many people in too many places are talking too much about this operation, and when so much detail is available it makes that both more difficult and riskier’ for such missions in the future.”

King requested in his letter that the Defense Department’s and CIA’s Inspectors General investigate meetings that occurred between Hollywood executives and government officials; how much information has been compromised; how Agency officers will keep their identities secret; and whether the military and CIA will get to pre-screen the movie to ensure it doesn’t disclose state secrets.

Tony Blair reads the Quran every day

Comments Off

Well here we have our recent convert to Catholicism now reading a Quran daily….what kind of contradiction is that!

London:  Former British prime minister Tony Blair has become “increasingly open” about the importance of religion, and reads the Quran every day to be “faith-literate”.

Blair, who reportedly said he was not interested in religion, converted to Catholicism after leaving No.10 Downing Street in 2007.

The former Labour Party leader now says reading the Islamic holy book ensured he remained “faith-literate”, reports the Daily Mail.

“To be faith-literate is crucial in a globalised world, I believe. I read the Quran every day. Partly to understand some of the things happening in the world, but mainly just because it is immensely instructive,” he said.

Blair said a knowledge of the faith was important for his role as an envoy for the Quartet of the UN, US, European Union and Russia.

Blair earlier reportedly praised the Muslim faith as “beautiful”. He said Prophet Mohammed had been “an enormously civilising force”.

The former prime minister said the Quran was a “reforming book, it is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and way ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance”

Coming to your town: More TSA Checkpoints and Patrols

2 Comments

I’ve been saying this type thing was coming for a while now. They’ll even have roving check points on our highways with the TSA in due time if we don’t buck it. This is all unconstitutional.I don’t think the American people will put up this this much “security”. Being stopped everywhere and checked all the time without warrants or probable cause? Come on now. This is not Nazi Germany and we don’t need to give up our liberties to be safe like the government wants us to.

Ben Franklin wisely said, “They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. And he’s right, because the more liberty you give up to the government, the more you become enslaved to them.


Ground Zero Mosque Applies for $5M Federal Grant

Can you believe this? Here’s something to raise your blood pressure again Carl and everyone else I”m sure as well. The brass these people have. Build a mosque at ground zero isn’t enough insult, now they want us to help pay for it.

Audacious: Ground Zero Mosque Applies for $5M Federal Grant

Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located one tenth of a mile from Ground Zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11th, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.

The audacious move stands to reignite the embers of a divisive debate that dominated headlines surrounding the 9th anniversary of the attacks this fall, say people vested in the issue.

The application was submitted under a “community and cultural enhancement” grant program administered by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corporation (LMDC), which oversaw the $20 billion in federal aid allocated in the wake of 9/11 and is currently doling out millions in remaining taxpayer funds for community development. The redevelopment board declined to comment on the application (as did officials from Park51), citing the still ongoing and confidential process of determining the grant winners.

Wellesley, Massachusetts Public School Students Learn to Pray to Allah

Comments Off

What if a Christian Church had done this? America you better wake up!!! As you hear the lady in the video say the Muslim woman there was very close to proselytizing the young children, see how Muslims treat Christians if they think they were proselytizing Muslims….

UK medic may have been killed for working with Christian group

OR

‘Five pillars of Islam’ taught in public school

Then consider as you watch this video…..Al-taqiyya and dissimulation are words used for a practice of  Muslims blatantly lying to non-Muslims. All but some of the most  fundamental Muslims consider the act of Al-taqiyya or lying to  non-Muslims to be a good work. This is very important when one
remembers that, in Islam, salvation is determined by good works.
This means that a Muslim lying to a non-Muslim is that Muslim
doing a good work to earn salvation. It is almost equivalent to
a Christian accepting Jesus as his savior.

Wellesley, Massachusetts Public School Students Learn to Pray to Allah

In late May of 2010, Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school students took a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – a controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society of Boston. There, the students were separated by gender and the boys were asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the public school boys took part.

The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center – Boston’s controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated (lied to..remember -Al-taqiyya) about Islam. A mosque spokesperson is seen teaching the children that in Mohammed’s 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago. This seems to be an increasingly recurring theme in American schools – the denigration of western civilization and the glorification of Islamic history and values. In fact, just recently, the American Textbook Council revealed that the New York State high school regents exam whitewashes the atrocities that occurred during the imperialistic Islamic conquest of Christian Byzantium, Persia, the African continent, and the Indian subcontinent, even as it demonizes European colonialism in South America.

The mosque spokesperson also taught the students that the only meaning of Jihad in Islam is a personal spiritual struggle, and that Jihad has historically had no relationship with holy war. As far as we know, the school has not corrected these false lessons.

Our organization, APT, is a non-profit group run by Jews, Christians and authentically moderate Muslims opposed to the radicalization of America’s historically moderate Muslim community. For the past three years we’ve been sounding the alarm about  the radical leadership and Saudi funding of the Boston mega-mosque and the organization that runs it, the Muslim American Society, which has been labeled by Federal prosecutors as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

The Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who is currently serving 23 years in jail on terror charges. For years, its board of trustees included Yusuf al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who was banned by Bill Clinton from the United States in 1999. Qaradawi now chairs the Muslim American Society’s university, which offers classes inside the mosque.  Over half the mosque’s $15.5 million price tag was funded by wealthy Saudis and since it opened, several of its leaders, donors and members have been implicated in Islamic extremism.

Oussama Ziade, a big donor to the mosque, is now a fugitive in Lebanon after being  indicted in 2009 for dealing in the assets of an Al Qaeda financier.  Ahmad Abousamra, the son of the Boston Muslim American Society’s former vice-president Abdulbadi Abousamra, is now a fugitive in Syria, fleeing the country before being indicted in 2009 on charges of aiding Al Qaeda. One of the mosque’s imams, Abdullah Faaruuq, was captured on tape in 2010 telling followers to “pick up the gun and the sword” and to defend another local terrorist Aafia Siddiqui from the U.S. government. Siddiqui, who was one of the imam’s congregants, is an MIT graduate and Al Qaeda member awaiting sentencing for attempting to murder FBI agents in Afghanistan while shouting “death to America.” (LINK)

The mosque leadership continues to be embraced by top Massachusetts political and religious leaders. These include Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, as well as a group of local progressive rabbis and Christian clergy, who all insist despite evidence to the contrary that the mosque is moderate and its critics are just bigots.

Indeed, this is a familiar refrain by leaders nationwide in response to the increasing public realization that Islamic leaders are not as moderate as they present themselves. Radicalism is growing and many moderate Muslims have been silenced. In various parts of the country, public schools are allowing Muslim extremists to promote Islam to our children. Something’s broken here. Our leadership is failing. It’s now up to ordinary citizens to fix it.

New York imam says moving mosque could incite Muslim backlash

Comments Off

Seems like this Imam is starting to threaten the US if it doesn’t acquiesce to Islam……Now we will have a Muslim backlash and Terrorist attacks if the mosque is not built? But Islam is a peaceful religion?

New York imam says moving mosque could incite Muslim backlash

If planned centre is moved from site near Ground Zero, radicals could see Islam as under attack in US, says cleric

The imam behind the controversial plan to build an Islamic centre and mosque near New York‘s Ground Zero site has said he is “exploring all options” and “everything is on the table”, in the face of a firestorm of politically driven protest against the project.

In a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations in New York today, Feisal Abdul Rauf expressed frustration that “radical extremists have hijacked our discourse”, and warned that moving the mosque could prompt a violent backlash from some Muslims abroad.

Rauf said the Islamic centre’s advisers had been looking at “every option” including delaying construction. The imam has also suggested that the centre could expand to provide space for people of other faiths alongside Muslims.

“Everything is on the table,” he said. “We really are focused on solving it … I give you my pledge.”

Rauf said it was “absolutely disingenuous” to suggest that the site of the planned construction was “hallowed ground” when there is a strip club and betting shops nearby. He defended the need for the project.

“In recent days some people have asked: is there really a need for an Islamic community centre in lower Manhattan? Is it worth all this firestorm? The answer is a categorical yes,” he said.

Yesterday, Rauf told ABC News that the controversy had “been used for political purposes” and that there was “growing Islamophobia in this country”. He said the “discourse has been, to a certain extent, hijacked by the radicals.”

“The radicals on both sides, the radicals in the United States and the radicals in the Muslim world, feed off each other. And to a certain extent, the attention that they’ve been able to get by the media has even aggravated the problem,” he said.

Asked why, when more than two-thirds of New Yorkers say they want the Islamic centre built somewhere else, he would not do that, Rauf said: “My major concern with moving it is that the headline in the Muslim world will be Islam is under attack in America, this will strengthen the radicals in the Muslim world, help their recruitment, this will put our people – our soldiers, our troops, our embassies, our citizens – under attack in the Muslim world, and we have expanded and given and fueled terrorism.”

Rauf said he might have done some things differently if he had realised the Islamic centre would provoke the reaction that has engulfed it. “I would never have done it. I’m a man of peace. I mean the whole objective of peace work is not to do something that would provoke controversy,” he said.

BREAKING NEWS:Pakistani Minister calls for Obama to become “Caliph of Muslims”

3 Comments

Right in America’s face…..Well why doesn’t the media or Obama just come out and say it…….Obama is a muslim……….not a Christian as he says he is. An online dictionary defines “caliph” as a noun derived from the word “successor,” a “successor of Muhammad as temporal and spiritual head of Islam.” A second dictionary concurs.

Pakistani Minister calls for Obama to become “Caliph of Muslims”

This photo appears beside the assertion on Obama’s “Fight the Smears” website that he is a “committed Christian.”

(Sept. 3, 2010) — An online Pakistani newspaper is reporting that a government minister has asked that Barrack (sic) Hussein Obama be named “Caliph of Muslims.”

The minister reportedly wants Obama to “offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero Mosque,” the construction of which, several blocks from where 2,972 people were incinerated by two airliners on September 11, 2001 when they were deliberately flown into the World Trade Center Towers, Obama has openly supported.

The same Pakistani story was published on a site which appears to be operated by MSN in India.

The report quotes the government minister as having said, ““The coming Eid would expectedly be observed on 9/11, this a golden opportunity for President Obama to offer Eid prayers at Ground Zero and become Amir-ul-Momineen or Caliph of Muslims.”

Eid is a festival which marks the end of Ramadan, which includes daily fasting.

Because the festival of “Eid” coincides with September 11 this year, Muslims are reportedly worried that it could invoke “the potential for misunderstandings or worse in a year when American Muslims are already confronting a spike in assaults on their faith and protests against new mosques.”

An online dictionary defines “caliph” as a noun derived from the word “successor,” a “successor of Muhammad as temporal and spiritual head of Islam.” A second dictionary concurs.

According to Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs, “The caliph in Sunni Islam is the successor of Muhammad as the military, political, and spiritual leader of the Islamic community.”

Wikipedia defines the term “Caliph” as “the head of state in a Caliphate, and the title for the leader of the Islamic Ummah, an Islamic community ruled by the Shari’ah” and claims that it is a “constitutional republic.”

The minister, Ayatullah Durrani, was reportedly a member of the Pakistan Ideological Council.  A website states that he or she is “Minister of State” within the “Ministry of Indusrtires (sic) and Production.”  While some of the links are non-functional, the link labeled “Politics” brings up a history of Pakistan.

A second website depicts Dr. Ayatullah Durrani as a male and a member of the “Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians.”  The political party is described here.

After conducting a search for the term “Muslim Ummah,” as it appeared in the Pakistani article, a warning about an “attack page is displayed.  Why has Google blocked the site with a warning?  The same thing happens when trying to access the website for “Muslim Ummah of North America.”

Wikipedia states that “ummah” is “an Arabic word meaning “community” or “nation.”  One source states that it is the “community” which includes “Mauritania to Pakistan.”

A search for the term “Ameer-ul-Momineen” yields an Islamic website depicting books which can be downloaded as well as at least one video and a chat room.  Another definition is “Leader of the Faithful.”

How can a man who professes to be a Christian be a Muslim Caliph?  Obama claimed he was a Christian on his campaign website.  Or was he simply confused?  He has hosted Iftar dinners and spoken about “Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings. Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality. And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.”

But what has he said about Christianity and Jesus Christ?  The Post & Email has just learned that Obama reportedly does not even give Christmas presents to his children.

The prophet Muhammad was born in Mecca, where the last Friday of Ramadan was recognized today.  One Muslim says that Ramadan is the best time of the year for her personally.

A note at the end of the Pakistani article states that it also appeared in their print news edition.

Update:  When Obama addressed the “Muslim world” last summer, he said he was “interested in working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill “Zakat,” which he stated is an “obligation.”  Zakat is defined as “one of the five pillars of Islam” and involves the redistribution of wealth to the poor.  “It is obligatory upon all Muslims to give 2.5 % of wealth and assets each year (in excess of what is required) to the poor.”

Is Obama’s “Muslim faith” the reason he advocated “spreading the wealth around” to Joe the Plumber in 2008?

Did Americans simply accept that Obama was a Christian during the campaign because his surrogates said soThe evidence says otherwise.
