Illegal immigrants from countries like Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan crossing our border…

Watch the Atlanta TV 2 News Reports!



In Brigitte Gabriel’s first best-selling book Because They Hate, available on www.amazon.com and other online booksellers, she documented how suspected terrorists have been infiltrating our country through our southern border.

Brigitte informs audiences everywhere she goes that our porous southern border is a virtual highway for Islamists and terrorists to enter our country illegally.

Because They Hate was mailed to every Member of Congress.

Now, in light of Arizona’s new immigration law, one TV news station did its own research—and the findings are ominous, corroborating the impeccable research Brigitte did over four years ago.

Click here to see the first news report, which contains video of prayer rugs, patches with slogans of martyrdom, and other evidences that many radical Islamists are crossing our border.

Click here to see the second news report—where a member of the House Homeland Security committee is shown a list of detainees from countries like Yemen, and he responds that he’s never been given this list!

The Jihadists’ Deadly Path to Citizenship


Michelle Malkin’s column below documents the ways jihadists are exploiting our visa and citizenship laws. This includes sham marriages, where jihadists marry an American citizen in order to gain citizenship.
The book Lightning Out of Lebanon documents how terrorists in a cell in Charlotte, North Carolina, used marriage as a means to achieve citizenship and further their efforts to fund the terrorist organization Hezbollah.
This problem is now being examined closely by some Members of Congress and is likely to be an issue they discuss with our participants at our National Conference & Legislative Briefing June 27 – 29. Have you registered yet? Are you considering attending or would like more information?

The Jihadists' Deadly Path to Citizenship
By Michelle Malkin
http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | America's homeland security amnesia never ceases to amaze. In the aftermath of the botched Times Square terror attack over the weekend, Pakistani-born bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad's U.S. citizenship status caused a bit of shock and awe. The Atlantic magazine writer Jeffrey Goldberg's response was typical: "I am struck by the fact that he is a naturalized American citizen, not a recent or temporary visitor." Well, wake up and smell the deadly deception.
Shahzad's path to American citizenship — he reportedly married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas — is a tried-and-true terror formula. Jihadists have been gaming the sham marriage racket with impunity for years. And immigration benefit fraud has provided invaluable cover and aid for U.S.-based Islamic plotters, including many other operatives planning attacks on New York City. As I've reported previously:
— El Sayyid A. Nosair wed Karen Ann Mills Sweeney to avoid deportation for overstaying his visa. He acquired U.S. citizenship, allowing him to remain in the country, and was later convicted for conspiracy in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that claimed six lives.
— Ali Mohamed became an American citizen after marrying a woman he met on a plane trip from Egypt to New York. Recently divorced, Linda Lee Sanchez wed Mohamed in Reno, Nev., after a six-week "courtship." Mohamed became a top aide to Osama bin Laden and was later convicted for his role in the 1998 United States embassy bombings in Africa that killed 12 Americans and more than 200 others.
— Embassy bombing plotter Khalid Abu al Dahab obtained citizenship after marrying three different American women.
— Embassy bombing plotter Wadih el Hage, Osama bin Laden's personal secretary, married April Ray in 1985 and became a naturalized citizen in 1989. Ray knew of her husband's employment with bin Laden, but like many of these women in bogus marriages, she pleaded ignorance about the nature of her husband's work. El Hage, she says, was a sweet man, and bin Laden "was a great boss."
— Lebanon-born Chawki Youssef Hammoud, convicted in a Hezbollah cigarette-smuggling operation based out of Charlotte, N.C., married American citizen Jessica Fortune for a green card to remain in the country.
— Hammoud's brother, Mohammed Hammoud, married three different American women. After arriving in the United States on a counterfeit visa, being ordered deported and filing an appeal, he wed Sabina Edwards to gain a green card. Federal immigration officials refused to award him legal status after this first marriage was deemed bogus in 1994. Undaunted, he married Jessica Wedel in May 1997 and, while still wed to her, paid Angela Tsioumas (already married to someone else, too) to marry him in Detroit. The Tsioumas union netted Mohammed Hammoud temporary legal residence to operate the terror cash scam. He was later convicted on 16 counts that included providing material support to Hezbollah.
— A total of eight Middle Eastern men who plotted to bomb New York landmarks in 1993 — Fadil Abdelgani, Amir Abdelgani, Siddig Ibrahim Siddig Ali, Tarig Elhassan, Abdo Mohammed Haggag, Fares Khallafalla, Mohammed Saleh, and Matarawy Mohammed Said Saleh — all obtained legal permanent residence by marrying American citizens.
A year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, homeland security officials cracked a massive illegal alien Middle Eastern marriage fraud ring in a sting dubbed "Operation Broken Vows." Authorities were stunned by the scope of the operations, which stretched from Boston to South Carolina to California. But marriage fraud remains a treacherous path of least resistance. The waiting period for U.S. citizenship is cut by more than half for marriage visa beneficiaries. Sham marriage monitoring by backlogged homeland security investigators is practically nonexistent.
As former federal immigration official Michael Cutler warned years ago: "Immigration benefit fraud is certainly one of the major 'dots' that was not connected prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, and remains a 'dot' that is not really being addressed the way it needs to be in order to secure our nation against criminals and terrorists who understand how important it is for them to 'game' the system as a part of the embedding process."
Jihadists have knowingly and deliberately exploited our lax immigration and entrance policies to secure the rights and benefits of American citizenship while they plot mass murder — and we haven't done a thing to stop them.

Is the intelligence community being brainwashed?

Just one more example of why we launched Veteran Defenders of America



How can we successfully defeat the radical Islamist threat when those in national security are being ordered not to use terms like “Islamism,” “jihad,” and “Islamic radicalism” in national security documents? (See insightful commentary below, highlights added.)

Clear-thinking, commonsense Americans must not succumb to this outrageous political correctness. The Pentagon did when it published the report on the Ft. Hood massacre and did not mention, even once, the ideology of radical Islam in the body of the report.

Last month ACT! for America launched a new grassroots project, Veteran Defenders of America.


The mission of Veteran Defenders of America is to create a nationwide volunteer network of veterans who, through education, information, training and preparedness, will serve as a key part of America’s frontline grassroots “eyes and ears of freedom” with respect to threats to our national security and our freedoms, such as the threat of radical Islam.
The law enforcement community tells us that citizen awareness and the providing of tips and information is essential to thwarting terrorism. But we must also understand the ideology that is driving this terrorism.

ACT! for America is calling on the veterans and their families in our midst to log on to www.veterandefenders.org and find out how you can become a part of the “eyes and ears of freedom” in your local community.





Is the U.S. Diplomatic and Intelligence Community Being Brainwashed in Dealing with Islamism?

Posted: 24 Apr 2010 02:21 PM PDT


By Barry Rubin

When I first heard the story that President Barack Obama was barring from national security documents the use of terms like "Islamism," "Islamic fundamentalist," "Islamic radicalism," or any reference of any connection between Islam and terrorist or revolutionary groups; al-Qaida, Hamas, and Hizballah; Iran's regime or al-Qaida, I said to myself, oh that's nothing new. That kind of policy started under Bush.

But then I realized--and this isn't obvious in the coverage but is the most important aspect of all!--that this policy applies to internal government documents not just public statements. That's both scary and shocking. Because the implication won't be lost on career officials that along with not using these words it isn't going to help their future prospects to use these concepts.

I don't want to overstate the situation. In internal government discussions, people do refer to "Islamic radicals," for example. It is the written work that is more likely to suffer. And are things going to tighten up under this administration in the years to come?

Suppose I'm an intelligence analyst in the State Department, Defense Department, armed forces, or CIA, and I'm writing about one of these groups or this ideology. How can one possibly analyze the power and appeal of this ideology, the way that ideas set its strategy and tactics, why it is such a huge menace if any reference to the Islamic religion and its texts or doctrines isn't permitted?

Indeed, it is worse. Can you refer to the claims of these groups about Islam, even while insisting that they are wrong? Remember it isn't just a matter of forbidding officials from doing something, they are going to get the signal that it is better for their careers not to do so.

And if one cannot talk about "Islamist" groups can you identify them as a huge threat or is the analyst tempted to suggest that they can be won over and moderated rather than they need to be combatted? Perhaps, say, the coming to power of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt might not be such a bad thing, or Hizballah is something the U.S. government can work with?

How could one even talk about a coherent Islamist movement, which is possibly the most single significant feature of international affairs today, at least in the Middle East--if I cannot use the "I" word even as part of a different word?

Suppose I'm reporting on the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Could I say without fear:

Yes, of course, Islam is a religion of peace but these people want to hijack and distort it. So what they do is look at certain basic texts and important Muslim theologians and interpet their statements to mean that ultimately no compromise is possible, Egypt must become an Islamic [oops] state, America is going to be their enemy, and Israel must be destroyed. Of course, this is just a distortion of Islam [which is a religion of peace] but many people believe it because they have been taught an interpretation similar to the one the Brotherhood is using.

Or would I have to say:

Since Islam is a religion of peace and is really moderate and there's nothing in it that lends itself to a radical [mis]interpretation, therefore, the Brotherhood will realize this and become moderate or the Muslim masses--who, of course, understand their own religion--will inevitably reject the Islamists [oops!] false interpretation. In short, no worries and every little thing's gonna be all right. [Footnote: Bob Marley.]

After all, this is the name of the doctrine that triggers so much terrorism; destroyed the World Trade Center; overthrew the shah of Iran; seized power in the Gaza Strip; is killing American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan; and is trying to mount revolutions in countries as far-flung as Morocco, Algeria, Yemen, and Somalia to India, Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Yet that reovlutionary Islamist doctrine itself is exploiting every advantage it can from the fervent belief of millions of people in Islam and the fact that its ideology arguably does coincide with some of that religion's most important features.

In contrast to the "official" view that Islam is a religion of peace which a few heretical desperadoes is trying to hijack, my image is one of a fight over the steering wheel between two rivals which each have a claim to ownership of the vehicle. We know who we want to win, but the battle's outcome isn't going to be determined by pretending that an Islamist ideology doesn't exist or that all the Muslim onlookers are laughing at the ridiculous pretensions of obviously outlandish heretics to their religion. After all, if that's true, the Islamists have no chance of gaining power, right?

But while the Islamists are not "the" or the only embodiment of Islam, they are an embodiment of Islam who can make their case for legitimacy, and must be understood as such. The danger is that the Islamists will in future be accepted as the definers of Islam by huge numbers of people. The Islamists may disillusion people if they become rulers--as did the Communists--but once they have control over a country and its weapons it's too late to debate them into defeat.

I'm less bothered by the fact that the U.S. government won't allow officials to speak that way publicly. There are two arguments for this stance: so as not to "insult" Muslims by associating them with Islamists and to avoid giving Islamists legitimacy as claimants to being normative Muslims. Both have a certain public relations' value but are sort of silly at the same time since many Muslims embrace Islamism while Muslims don't care what non-Muslims think about anyone's credentials. At any rate, these don't apply so much to the phrase "revolutionary Islamist" for example.

Those of us who know how government bureaucracy works understand that officials don't do things that jeopardize their careers and promotion hopes. For example, few in the U.S. army are going to look seriously for budding Islamist terrorists in their own ranks because--despite the Fort Hood massacre--to do so risks being called racist, Islamophobe, and--worse, lieutenant-for-life. And--may I be blunt here?--if officer bureaucrats and officials have to choose between getting into trouble and endangering lives, a lot of them will choose the latter.

For without an ability to discuss these matters frankly, analysis and reporting cannot be accurate. In effect, whole arguments and ideas will be swept from people's minds. Already, the U.S. armed forces is too intimidated (and individuals too concerned about their careers) to examine soberly and seriously the potential development of Islamist terrorists in its own ranks. My sources tell me nothing has improved in this respect since the Fort Hood massacre.

To extend this intellectual malpractice further to international affairs and intelligence reporting within the government may go down in history as the most dangerous thing the Obama Administration has ever done. Imagine trying to analyze the USSR without being able to talk frankly about Communism; Nazi Germany without a serious analysis of its fascism. The analysis of samurai culture and the sanctity of the emperor in Japanese religion were absolutely vital for the U.S. conduct of World War Two.

How can one have a good discussion of what differentiates moderates from radicals or whether, say, Turkey's government is a center-right family-values' regime or an Islamist one? In what manner can somebody understand how a revolutionary Islamist group might quickly pick up support from millions within a country by using Islamic concepts and texts to justify itself in a persuasive manner? How can you figure out how to dispute Islamist claims if you don't even acknowledge their existence and at least partial validity?

The above probably overstates the case. For example, there is still plenty of talk about "Islamic radicals" but very little longer-range or broader conceptualizations of what it all means. If you were a diplomat or intelligence analyst would you write a dispatch or report, for example, saying that the gaining of power in any Middle East country by revolutionary Islamist groups is a threat to U.S. national interests?

Yet the pressure is on for them to treat Islamist regimes and movements as rational, realist, national-interest-oriented, pragmatic entities whose ideas, methods, and behavior have nothing to do with Islam. Or, in the case of al-Qaida and others, the alternative is that they are insane heretical groups that have nothing to do with Islam?

Will officials be intimidated into shutting mouths and minds, altering strategic proposals, censoring out timely warnings? And that is a potential catastrophe for U.S. interests and is possibly going to be very costly in lives lost.

We commend to you Mansur’s column below.


Reminder: ACT! for America’s National Conference will be held in our nation’s capital June 27 – 29. To find out more information, click here. Register today at the “Patriot” level and you’ll receive an added benefit at no extra cost—a private breakfast reception with Brigitte Gabriel. And if you have registered, book your hotel soon to receive our special group rate.


Taking on Islamists’ hidden agenda

Saturday, April 24, 2010 SALIM MANSUR — SUN MEDIA

http://www.torontosun.com/comment/columnists/salim_mansur/2010/04/23/13697976.html

In my previous column, I wrote about the lonely effort of the Montreal-based Point de bascule (tipping point) to expose the true hidden feature of the organized Islamist effort in Quebec — as in the rest of North America — to gain acceptance of its agenda.

This Islamist effort is highly organized and globally financed, it is multi-pronged and with an outreach directed to penetrate every level of society from the highest reaches of governments to local civic organizations.

It is also exceedingly successful in manipulating support for its agenda by reaching out to the “progressives” in the West ever ready to play the role of “useful idiots,” as Lenin, the Bolshevik leader, so aptly described them.

The Islamist agenda pushed by Muslim Brotherhood and its fraternal affiliates across the Muslim world — in the case of Iran by the followers of Khomeini, the exponent of the Shiite version of Islamism and founder of the Islamic Republic — is to coerce Muslim societies to reinforce Shariah (Islamic) laws.

In the West, the Islamist agenda is to gain acceptance of Shariah for Muslims to live according to its requirements, and to have western governments adopt some of its directives as with the scheme for Shariah-based finance.

Western liberal democracies are highly vulnerable to such organized penetration by external and alien interests for obvious reasons.

The strength of the modern West is derived from its liberalism, secularism, democracy, rule of law, respect for individual rights, gender equity, openness to others and willingness to subject itself to public criticism.

This strength paradoxically provides enemies of the West with tools by which to subvert and weaken it, causing great harm.

The western inability or reluctance to confront Islamists ironically arises from its tolerance of and respect for all religions on the basis of freedom of conscience.

This freedom is a hard won principle that distinguishes the modern West from pre-modern cultures and, especially, the cultures of the Muslim world.

Religious tolerance, which barely exists in the contemporary Muslim societies, lends Islamists the cover with which to mask their ideology and political agenda as religion.

This ploy disarms western liberal critics of Islamism when countered with accusations of religious intolerance and bigotry skillfully made by Islamists and their “useful idiots.”

It also disarms most Muslims opposed to Islamism by the ever-present reality of violence inside the Muslim world. Muslims in the West are similarly disarmed and silenced by Islamists with their control of mosques, enabling them to spread fear of blackmail, intimidation, violence, ostracism and the stigma of betrayal among an immigrant population acutely vulnerable to such threats.

Yet Muslims in increasing numbers oppose Islamism, and across the Muslim world — in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Algeria, Pakistan,Indonesia or Turkey — the fight against Islamism is one of the main causes of political unrest.

It is a fight that pits on the one side Muslims who wish to see their world reconciled with modernity, and those who insist upon “Islamizing” modernity.

For Muslims, this is a historic struggle with global consequences.

And the West with an affinity for this struggle, given its history, needs to oppose Islamism without any misgiving.

Why is CAIR Smearing ACT! for America?

And is CAIR breaking the law?


CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, is revving up its propaganda machine against ACT! for America. Clearly, CAIR has decided we’ve become too effective in getting the word out about the threat of radical Islam.

CAIR, the U.S. propaganda front group for the terrorist organization Hamas, is notorious for aiming its invective at anyone or any group that dares to expose the threat of radical Islam or expose who CAIR really is.

The reason is simple. Unable to debate the substance of the information published by organizations like ours, CAIR attempts the age-old ploy of smearing the messenger in hopes of diverting attention from the information that is so damning.

As Brigitte Gabriel noted in a recent interview with FrontPage Magazine, CAIR is getting more desperate with every passing month. Desperate organizations—like desperate people—do desperate things.

The blog below (highlights added) is well worth reading.




The Pastor, the Pedophile and CAIR

by Adam Savit

On April 5 the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a press release urging GOP leaders to “insist” that Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-NC) withdraw support from the non-profit grassroots advocacy organization ACT! for America. CAIR referred to ACT! for America, one of the largest national security (and pro-American and pro-Israel) citizens organizations in the United States, as an “anti-Islam hate group.”

As we at the Center for Security Policy have reported previously at Big Government, we believe – with the backup evidence to prove it at CAIRObservatory.org – that CAIR has been operating as an unregistered foreign agent, as defined by the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). FARA § 611 (o) states that foreign agents who engage in any activity to “influence any agency or official of the Government of the United States or any section of the public within the United States” must register as a foreign agent and report such activity to the Department of Justice. Therefore as Rep. Myrick and GOP leaders are “officials of the government of the United States,” CAIR’s attempt to influence their conduct and associations in this way is a clear violation of the FARA statute.



On April 13 CAIR-Tampa echoed the CAIR national office message with this action alert and directed readers to a petition calling for 5,000 signatures condemning the GOP and Myrick for associating with ACT! for America. CAIR could only find a single spokesperson to prop up their attack on ACT! For America, a certain Reverend Wilifred Allen-Faiella of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Coconut Grove, FL. The CAIR action alert quotes from her letter which echoes, word for word, CAIR’s talking points from their smear campaign:

“As a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ who preached love for all I am appalled that a Congresswoman can support a hate-filled group such as “Act for America”. Their statements about Muslims constitute hate speech and no responsible leader of this country founded on the principles that all are created equal should associate herself with such an anti-American group.”

Big mistake in spokepersons, CAIR.

The question is open as to whether CAIR bothered to investigate Allen-Faiella’s questionable background before they chose her to be their sole spokeperson, since she is best known for her starring role in a well-publicized 2004 Miami scandal when she allowed a convicted pedophile to volunteer at the thrift shop next to her church’s K-6 elementary school. On November 4, 2004 the Miami New Times reported that the volunteer, church member Steven Sypnieski, told the pastor in a “confidential pastoral setting” that he “had some problems in his past.” Apparently Allen-Faiella didn’t bother to check Sypnieski’s criminal record, easily accessible online. In 1992 Sypnieski was arrested by police for sexual battery on an 8-year-old boy he was babysitting, according to the arrest affidavit. He gave a confession and pleaded guilty to ‘custodial sexual battery.’ Astoundingly, he was sentenced only to ten years probation.

In October, 2003 – 11 years after the confession, just after his probation sentence ended – Sypnieski was brought into the Church School’s thrift shop as a volunteer by Allen-Faiella. Allen-Faiella admitted “I was made aware of his record on the sixteenth of December [a Tuesday in 2003],” but because the Christmas break was to begin Friday, she stated that “I intended to take care of the situation as soon as we got back. In fact I put it on the calendar for January 7 to talk with my priest assistant how we were going to handle the matter.” According to the Miami New Times, “When parents discovered the man’s criminal record, Allen-Faiella failed to take immediate action, so the school’s principal, Carol Shabe, forcefully confronted the pastor, demanding that the man’s school access be revoked at once….” According to the report, the school principal had to ask Allen-Faiella two more times to take Sypnieski’s keys away from him before Allen-Faiella would take action. Parents and donors withdrew support for the school in reaction to the pastor’s behavior; and Pastor Allen-Faiella fired the school principal Carol Shabe later that year for “divisiveness.”

Angry parents described Allen-Faiella as “intransigent and unresponsive.” Indeed, the pastor told the Miami newspaper “I think it’s being blown totally out of proportion… The appropriate people knew about it. No big deal was made about it. And suddenly it became a big issue.” According to the Miami New Times:

“Allen-Faiella also says that following Sypnieski’s dismissal, she’s learned his probation had ended prior to him volunteering, and that she’d read something indicating ‘he was not considered a criminal threat to the community.’ (She can’t recall where she saw the information.) Had she known these things earlier, would she have allowed Sypnieski to work at the parish? ‘That’s a moot point now,’ she responds.”

So let’s sum up. We assert that CAIR is an unregistered foreign agent under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (see our report here at CAIRObservatory.org). This particular influence operation by CAIR targeted Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-NC), using a related influence operation to smear a national grassroots organization – ACT! For America, with nearly 80,000 members and 380 chapters – as “hate-filled…anti-American.” And the sole spokesperson that CAIR-Tampa could find to support their smear campaign is best known for her earlier tolerance for a convicted pedophile, for whom she permitted potential access to children in her care, according to news reports in the mainstream newspaper Miami New Times. We’ve sent the Reverend Wilifred Allen-Faiella a letter, posted below, to alert her that when CAIR chose her as a spokesperson, she was being targeted in a possible unreported political influence operation. We urge her in the letter to report the details to FARA.

And who are the foreign principals – individuals, companies, organizations, government offices – bankrolling CAIR’s smear campaign using that most tolerant (of pedophiles at least) Reverend Allen-Faiella? A major one is the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), who gave CAIR $325,000 in 2007 – just part of the $6.6 million in cash and loans given to CAIR by foreign principals based in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Iran. The OIC’s Ten Year Plan demands “deterrent punishments” for any alleged acts of so-called “Islamophobia” in non-Muslim countries.

These CAIR smear campaigns – against Congresswoman Myrick, and against ACT! For America – are only two of CAIR’s many political influence operations, targeting critics of CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood links and critics of CAIR’s attempted enforcement of Shariah Law to silence free speech. Neither of these influence operations has been reported to the FARA office by CAIR as required by the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

And we think that’s against the law.

You Veterans Are My Heroes!!

By Brigitte Gabriel,

]President, ACT! for America

Are you a veteran? Is a family member a veteran? Or a friend?

Then this message is for you.

I’m delighted and pleased beyond words to announce that I am joining hands with my good friend, Major General Paul Vallely (US Army, Ret), in the launch of a new grassroots movement for veterans and their families, “Veteran Defenders of America,” www.veterandefenders.org.
Over a year ago some veterans approached ACT! for America and told us there are veterans everywhere who are concerned about increased threats to our national security, especially the threat of radical Islam.

They are concerned about the smothering “political correctness” that is sabotaging our nation’s ability to effectively combat the threat of radical Islam.

They still take seriously their oath to defend their nation, they want to continue to contribute their talents and experience, and they’re asking “what can we do?”

Veteran Defenders of America (VDA) is the answer.

When I approached General Vallely and asked him to be the Honorary Chairman of VDA, he immediately accepted and told us he would be honored to participate in this new venture.

General Vallely is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Vietnam veteran who served 32 distinguished years in the Army. He is a graduate of the Infantry School, Ranger and Airborne Schools, Jumpmaster School, the Command and General Staff School, The Industrial College of the Armed Forces and the Army War College. He has over fifteen years experience in Special Operations, Psychological and Civil Military Operations.

General Vallely is also the co-author of three books: Endgame – Blueprint for Victory for Winning the War on Terror, Warfooting and Baghdad Ablaze.

In short, General Vallely understands the seriousness of the threat of radical Islam and global jihad.

America’s veterans like General Vallely are my heroes. Your sacrifice has helped make possible a country where an immigrant like me can come and live in peace and liberty, and be all that I can be.

Now your country needs you again. Your family and your community need you.

Please log on to www.veterandefenders.org today to find out how veterans and their family members can take their rightful place on the front lines of freedom.

The motto of Veteran Defenders of America is “the eyes and ears of freedom, because we know that freedom isn’t free.” For the sake of the country and family that you love, we hope to hear from you today!

Always devoted,


Brigitte Gabriel

Feel safer now?

Dear Elaine,

Last year, President Obama bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and made a speech in Cairo largely blaming America for our “strained” relations with the Muslim world.

This year his administration berates Israel, accusing it of obstructing the peace process while Hamas continues to deny Israel’s right to exist.

He extends constitutional rights to foreign terrorists, including reading them their Miranda rights.

He announces that the U.S. will not retaliate with nuclear weapons against any non-nuclear country—even if that country hits us with a devastating biological or chemical weapons attack.

Now he bans characterizations such as “jihad” and “Islamic extremism” from our national security strategy (see article below, highlights added).

Feel safer now?




Obama Bans Islam, Jihad From National Security Strategy Document

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/04/07/obama-bans-islam-jihad-national-security-strategy-document/

AP

The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war.



President Obama speaks at the White House in Washington March 26. (Reuters Photo)

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's advisers will remove religious terms such as "Islamic extremism" from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said.

The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: "The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century."

The officials described the changes on condition of anonymity because the document still was being written, and the White House would not discuss it. But rewriting the strategy document will be the latest example of Obama putting his stamp on U.S. foreign policy, like his promises to dismantle nuclear weapons and limit the situations in which they can be used.

The revisions are part of a larger effort about which the White House talks openly, one that seeks to change not just how the United States talks to Muslim nations, but also what it talks to them about, from health care and science to business startups and education.

That shift away from terrorism has been building for a year, since Obama went to Cairo, Egypt, and promised a "new beginning" in the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. The White House believes the previous administration based that relationship entirely on fighting terror and winning the war of ideas.

"You take a country where the overwhelming majority are not going to become terrorists, and you go in and say, 'We're building you a hospital so you don't become terrorists.' That doesn't make much sense," said National Security Council staffer Pradeep Ramamurthy.

Ramamurthy runs the administration's Global Engagement Directorate, a four-person National Security Council team that Obama launched last May with little fanfare and a vague mission to use diplomacy and outreach "in pursuit of a host of national security objectives."

Since then, the division has not only helped change the vocabulary of fighting terror but also has shaped the way the country invests in Muslim businesses, studies global warming, supports scientific research and combats polio.

Before diplomats go abroad, they hear from the Ramamurthy or his deputy, Jenny Urizar. When officials from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration returned from Indonesia, the NSC got a rundown about research opportunities on global warming.

Ramamurthy maintains a database of interviews conducted by 50 U.S. embassies worldwide. And business leaders from more than 40 countries head to Washington this month for an "entrepreneurship summit" for Muslim businesses.

"Do you want to think about the U.S. as the nation that fights terrorism or the nation you want to do business with?" Ramamurthy said.

To deliver that message, Obama's speechwriters have taken inspiration from an unlikely source: former President Ronald Reagan. Visiting communist China in 1984, Reagan spoke to Fudan University in Shanghai about education, space exploration and scientific research.

He discussed freedom and liberty. He never mentioned communism or democracy.

"They didn't look up to the U.S. because we hated communism," said Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, Obama's foreign policy speechwriter.

Like Reagan in China, Obama in Cairo made only passing references to terrorism. Instead he focused on cooperation. He announced the United States would team up to fight polio with the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, a multinational body based in Saudi Arabia.

The United States and the OIC had worked together before, but never with that focus.

"President Obama saw it as an opportunity to say, 'We work on things far beyond the war on terrorism,"' said World Health Organization spokeswoman Sona Bari.

Polio is endemic in three Muslim countries -- Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan -- but some Muslim leaders have been suspicious of vaccination efforts, which they believed to be part of a CIA sterilization campaign. Last year, the OIC and religious scholars at the International Islamic Fiqh Academy issued a fatwa, or religious decree, that parents should have their children vaccinated.

"We're probably entering into a whole new level of engagement between the OIC and the polio program because of the stimulus coming from the U.S. government," said Michael Galway, who works on polio eradication for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Centers for Disease Control also began working more closely with local Islamic leaders in northern Nigeria, a network that had been overlooked for years, said John Fitzsimmons, the deputy director of the CDC's immunization division.

Though health officials are reluctant to assign credit to any one action, new polio cases in Nigeria fell from 83 during the first quarter of last year to just one so far this year, Fitzsimmons said.

Public opinion polls also showed consistent improvement in U.S. sentiment within the Muslim world last year, although the viewpoints are still overwhelmingly negative, however.

Obama did not invent Muslim outreach. President George W. Bush gave the White House its first Quran, hosted its first Iftar dinner to celebrate Ramadan, and loudly stated support for Muslim democracies like Turkey.

But the Bush administration struggled with its rhetoric. Muslims criticized him for describing the war against terror as a "crusade" and labeling the invasion of Afghanistan "Operation Infinite Justice" -- words that were seen as religious. He regularly identified America's enemy as "Islamic extremists" and "radical jihadists."

Karen Hughes, a Bush confidant who served as his top diplomat to the Muslim world in his second term, urged the White House to stop.

"I did recommend that, in my judgment, it's unfortunate because of the way it's heard. We ought to avoid the language of religion," Hughes said. "Whenever they hear 'Islamic extremism, Islamic jihad, Islamic fundamentalism,' they perceive it as a sort of an attack on their faith. That's the world view Osama bin Laden wants them to have."

Hughes and Juan Zarate, Bush's former deputy national security adviser, said Obama's efforts build on groundwork from Bush's second term, when some of the rhetoric softened. But by then, Zarate said, it was overshadowed by the Guantanamo Bay detention center, the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison and a prolonged Iraq war.

"In some ways, it didn't matter what the president did or said. People weren't going to be listening to him in the way we wanted them to," Zarate said. "The difference is, President Obama had a fresh start."

Obama's foreign policy posture is not without political risk. Even as Obama steps up airstrikes on terrorists abroad, he has proven vulnerable to Republican criticism on security issues at home, such as the failed Christmas Day airline bombing and the announced-then-withdrawn plan to prosecute 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York.

Peter Feaver, a Duke University political scientist and former Bush adviser, is skeptical of Obama's engagement effort. It "doesn't appear to have created much in the way of strategic benefit" in the Middle East peace process or in negotiations over Iran's nuclear ambitions, he said.

Obama runs the political risk of seeming to adopt politically correct rhetoric abroad while appearing tone deaf on national security issues at home, Feaver said.

The White House dismisses such criticism. In June, Obama will travel to Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, and is expected to revisit many of the themes of his Cairo speech.

"This is the long-range direction we need to go in," Ramamurthy said.

What Law Shall Govern Us?????


Dear Elaine,

The Constitution—or Islamic sharia law?

Here's what Omar Ahmad, founder of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) believes:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur'an should be the highest authority in America."

"American Muslim leader urges faithful to spread word," San Ramon Valley (CA) Herald, July 4, 1998.
Here's what Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR's Communications Director, believes:

"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future…"

Minneapolis Star Tribune, April 4, 1993
No wonder CAIR is fighting a desperate, and so far losing, battle against the co-authors of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Trying to Islamize America.

Paul Sperry, co-author of Muslim Mafia, is one of the featured speakers at our upcoming National Conference and Legislative Briefing, June 27 - 29 in Washington, DC.

Sperry is an investigative journalist and compelling speaker who has also written Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives Have Penetrated Washington. You don't want to miss the insights Sperry has on how Islamists are infiltrating our society with the ultimate objective of subjecting us to shariah law.

To get more information about the June conference, or to register, please click here.

And here's a bonus. If you register at the "Patriot" registration level by April 30th, we'll add to your registration benefits an invitation-only, private breakfast with Brigitte Gabriel on June 28th.

So don't delay!

By the way, it's not just CAIR leaders calling for the imposition of Islamic law in America. Here's what Muzammil Siddiqi, former President of ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and a former leader of America's MSA (Muslim Students Association), wrote in 1996:



"It is true that Islam stands for the sovereignty of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and Allah's rules are not limited to the acts of worship, they also include social, economic and political matters...

We must not forget that Allah's rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction."

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE AND ACTION ALERT!!

ACT! for America Adds
The Secure Visas Act of 2010
to Its List of
“High Priority Legislative Proposals”

We want to stop future “Underwear Bombers”
from flying into the U.S.

By Lisa Piraneo, Director of Government Relations


Dear Elaine,

After 9/11, and in response to the fact that several of the 9/11 terrorists had obtained U.S. visas, Congress created the Visa Security Program (VSP) to increase the security of the visa process at U.S. embassies and consulates.

Today, Visa Security Units (VSU) are operating in several foreign cities, such as Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Islamabad, Pakistan. At these posts, 100 percent of visa applicants receive additional screening.

Unfortunately, the Obama administration does not appear to see the importance of increased visa screening—even though the “Underwear Bomber” had a U.S. visa. Incredibly, there is no visa security presence in high risk locations such as London, Yemen, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, or Nigeria.

How does all of this affect U.S. security? At posts without a Visa Security Unit less than 2% out of 5.8 million applications receive additional screening. That’s a lot of potential terrorists missed!

Representative Lamar Smith (TX-21) and Senator John Cornyn (TX) recently introduced legislation to improve the security of our nation’s visa issuing process. The Secure Visas Act of 2010 (H.R. 4758 in the House and S. 2944 in the Senate) mandates not only that the Department of Homeland Security maintain U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Visa Security Units (VSU) at the 14 consular posts that already have them, but that such units are created at the 16 other posts that have been designated by ICE as “highest risk.”

ACT! for America has added both of these important proposals to our list of “High Priority” legislation—legislative initiatives that we feel will help protect our nation and its citizens against the many threats of radical Islam.

We hope you will become familiar with the Secure Visas Act of 2010 CLICK HERE, as well as the other legislative proposals on the list, and do your part to protect our nation by taking the action noted below. Forming and maintaining relationships with your elected officials, and their staff, is critical to winning the fight against radical Islam and to protecting our nation for our children and grandchildren.

This battle cannot be won without the voice and action of our grassroots citizen action network.


THE FOLLOWING ACTION IS NEEDED FROM YOU, OUR ACT! FOR AMERICA GRASSROOTS ADVOCATE!

The U.S. Congress is in spring/Easter recess for the next two weeks (March 29th through April 12th). That means they are back at home in their districts…close to you, their constituents!

Please take a moment today to schedule a brief meeting with your elected official (Click Here) in his/her district office. You can attend by yourself or with other members from your local Chapter.

INTRODUCE yourself as a member of ACT! for America and make your elected officials aware of the Secure Visas Act of 2010, as well as the other legislative proposals that are on the ACT! for America High Priority List Click Here.

Appease the Enemy, Beat Up the Friend


Dear Elaine,

According to news reports over the past ten days, President Obama is said to be quite upset with Israel because of Israel’s latest announcement of new housing settlements.

Apparently, Obama believes Hamas is serious about negotiating a peace agreement with Israel, and that the main thing standing in the way is Israel’s refusal to heed Hamas’ demand that it halt all new settlements.

Even if Israel did so, would Hamas then recognize Israel’s right to exist—which it has refused to do? President Obama would do better to demand that Hamas—a terrorist organization—formally recognize Israel’s right to exist, than beat up on our ally Israel for building housing.

The story below (highlights added) reveals how willing Obama is to humiliate an ally like Israel while appeasing our enemies. Just one more example of the kind of poor judgment that continues to erode American confidence that we will win the war on Islamic terrorism, as revealed in a recent Rasmussen poll.




Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama 'dumped him for dinner'




(AP Photo/Cliff Owen)

The President was said to have walked out of the meeting, saying to Mr Netanyahu: 'Let me know if there is anything new'

Giles Whittell, Washington, and James Hider, Jerusalem

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article7076431.ece


For a head of government to visit the White House and not pose for photographers is rare. For a key ally to be left to his own devices while the President withdraws to have dinner in private was, until this week, unheard of. Yet that is how Binyamin Netanyahu was treated by President Obama on Tuesday night, according to Israeli reports on a trip viewed in Jerusalem as a humiliation.

After failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements, Mr Obama walked out of his meeting with Mr Netanyahu but invited him to stay at the White House, consult with advisers and “let me know if there is anything new”, a US congressman, who spoke to the Prime Minister, said.

“It was awful,” the congressman said. One Israeli newspaper called the meeting “a hazing in stages”, poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House telephone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.

Left to talk among themselves Mr Netanyahu and his aides retreated to the Roosevelt Room. He spent a further half-hour with Mr Obama and extended his stay for a day of emergency talks to try to restart peace negotiations. However, he left last night with no official statement from either side. He returned to Israel yesterday isolated after what Israeli media have called a White House ambush for which he is largely to blame.

Sources said that Mr Netanyahu failed to impress Mr Obama with a flow chart purporting to show that he was not responsible for the timing of announcements of new settlement projects in east Jerusalem. Mr Obama was said to be livid when such an announcement derailed the visit to Israel by Joe Biden, the Vice-President, this month and his anger towards Israel does not appear to have cooled.

Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, cast doubt on minor details in Israeli accounts of the meeting but did not deny claims that it amounted to a dressing down for the Prime Minister, whose refusal to freeze settlements is seen in Washington as the main barrier to resuming peace talks.

The Likud leader has to try to square the rigorous demands of the Obama Administration with his nationalist, ultra-Orthodox coalition partners, who want him to stand up to Washington even though Israel needs US backing in confronting the threat of a nuclear Iran.

“The Prime Minister leaves America disgraced, isolated and altogether weaker than when he came,” the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz said.

In their meeting Mr Obama set out expectations that Israel was to satisfy if it wanted to end the crisis, Israeli sources said. These included an extension of the freeze on Jewish settlement growth beyond the ten-month deadline next September, an end to building projects in east Jerusalem and a withdrawal of Israeli forces to positions held before the second intifada in September 2000.

Newspaper reports recounted how Mr Netanyahu looked “excessively concerned and upset” when he pulled out a flow chart to show Mr Obama how Jerusalem planning permission worked and how he could not have known that the announcement that hundreds more homes were to be built would be made when Mr Biden arrived in Jerusalem.

Mr Obama then suggested that Mr Netanyahu and his staff stay at the White House to consider his proposals so that if he changed his mind he could inform the President right away. “I’m still around,” the daily newspaper Yediot Aharonot quoted Mr Obama as saying. “Let me know if there is anything new.”

With the atmosphere so soured by the end of the evening, the Israelis decided that they could not trust the telephone line they had been lent for their consultations. Mr Netanyahu and Ehud Barak, his Defence Minister, went to the Israeli Embassy to ensure that the Americans were not listening in.

The meeting came barely a day after Mr Obama’s health reform victory. Israel had calculated that he would be too tied up with domestic issues to focus seriously on the Middle East.

“Is the Gitmo Bar Pro-Islamist?”
Prosecutor of 1993 World Trade Center Bombers
to Speak at ACT! for America’s National Conference
and Legislative Briefing

Dear Elaine,

Andrew McCarthy, the lead prosecutor in the successful prosecution of the perpetrators of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, WILL BE ONE OF THE FEATURED SPEAKERS AT THE ACT! FOR AMERICA NATIONAL CONFERENCE AND LEGISLATIVE BRIEFING, JUNE 27 – 29.

Last year Mr. McCarthy came out strongly against the use of civilian, criminal trials for foreign terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. In the commentary below (highlights added), he addresses questions about Islam, Islamism, and the lawyers Attorney General Eric Holder has appointed to the Justice Department who have defended Guantanamo Bay terrorist detainees.

Mr. McCarthy is a compelling speaker who will articulate his opposition to civilian trials for terrorists at our national conference. You don’t want to miss this timely presentation! To find out more details about the conference or to register online, simply click here.

Tomorrow we will announce two more speakers we have confirmed for the conference. Stay tuned!

Is the Gitmo Bar Pro-Islamist? [Andy McCarthy]

…Now, to the more important question posed in the last paragraph of Jonah's post. Let's put DOJ's ten (and counting) Gitmo lawyers to the side and just talk about the volunteer Gitmo bar in general. I believe many of the attorneys who volunteered their services to al Qaeda were, in fact, pro-Qaeda or, at the very least, pro-Islamist. Not all of them, but many of them. The assistance many of them provided went disturbingly beyond any conventional notion of "legal representation." (And let's not forget that what Lynne Stewart called her "legal representation" of the Blind Sheikh was later found by a jury to be material support to terrorism.) I expect we'll be hearing much more about this in the coming days.

Islamism is a much broader and more mainstream (in Islam) ideology than suggested by the surprisingly ill-informed comments Charles Krauthammer made about a week ago (see Dr. K's commentary here; Mark Steyn's reaction, with which I agree, is here.) Jihadist terrorists are a subset of the Islamists, but many Islamists disagree with the terrorists' means — they are mostly on the same page as far as ends are concerned.

Personally, I don't think there is much difference, if any, between Islam and Islamism. In that assessment, I'm not much different from Turkey's Islamist prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who claims it is "very ugly" for Westerners to draw these distinctions between Muslims as "moderate" or "Islamist" — “It is offensive and an insult to our religion," he says, because "there is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam, and that’s it."

Islamists are Muslims who would like to see sharia (Islamic law) installed. That is the necessary precondition to Islamicizing a society. It is the purpose of jihad. The terrorists are willing to force sharia's installation by violent jihad; other Islamists have varying views about the usefulness of violence, but they also want sharia, and their jihadist methods include tactics other than violence. I reluctantly use the term "Islamist" rather than "Islam" because I believe there are hundreds of millions of Muslims (somewhere between a third to a half of the world's 1.4 billion Muslims) who do not want to live under sharia, and who want religion to be a private matter, separated from public life. It is baffling to me why these people are Muslims since, as I understand Islam, (a) sharia is a basic element, and (b) Islam rejects the separation of mosque and state. But I'm not a Muslim, so that is not for me to say. I think we have to encourage the non-sharia Muslims and give them space to try to reform their religion, so I believe it's worth labeling the sharia seekers "Islamists" in order to sort them out. But I admit being very conflicted about it because I also concede that the Islamists have the more coherent (and scary) construction of Islam. We wouldn't be encouraging reform if we really thought Islam was fine as is.

In any event, Islamist ideology is multi-faceted. You can be pro-Islamist, and even pro-Qaeda, without signing on to the savage Qaeda methods. And the relevant question with respect to progressive lawyers is not so much whether they are pro-Qaeda as it is whether, as between Islamists and the U.S. as it exists, they have more sympathy for the Islamists. That's a fair question, but a very uncomfortable one to ask. Indeed, as Jonah broaches it, he softens it to whether the insinuation that the lawyers are pro-Qaeda is "counter-productive." That's an interesting question but a very different one from whether the insinuation is true.

In a column a few days ago, I addressed the insinuation this way:

“Al-Qaeda Seven” reminds me of another legal shorthand expression: “mob lawyer.” It’s a common expression — everyone uses it. I’d wager that a number of the DOJ’s Gitmo lawyers have either used it or been in conversations where it rolled effortlessly, and without objection, off the tongues of other prosecutors. “Mob lawyers” are lawyers who regularly represent members and associates of the mafia. It’s such a commonplace that even the mob lawyers call themselves “mob lawyers.” It’s a handle; it doesn’t mean the people who use the term don’t see the moral difference between mobsters who commit heinous crimes and the lawyers who defend them. Same with the “al-Qaeda Seven.”

Much of the commentary on this point, including from some people who usually know better, has been specious. The normally sensible Paul Mirengoff, for example, huffs, “It is entirely inappropriate to suggest that these lawyers share the values of terrorists or to dub the seven DOJ lawyers ‘The al-Qaeda Seven.’” The values of the terrorists? Which values?

Jihadists believe it is proper to massacre innocent people in order to compel the installation of sharia as a pathway to Islamicizing society. No one for a moment believes, or has suggested, that al-Qaeda’s American lawyers share that view. But jihadist terrorists, and Islamist ideology in general, also hold that the United States is the root of all evil in the world, that it is the beating heart of capitalist exploitation of society’s have-nots, and that it needs fundamental, transformative change.

This, as I argue in a book to be published this spring, is why Islam and the Left collaborate so seamlessly. They don’t agree on all the ends and means. In fact, Islamists don’t agree among themselves about means. But before they can impose their utopias, Islamists and the Left have a common enemy they need to take down: the American constitutional tradition of a society based on individual liberty, in which government is our servant, not our master. It is perfectly obvious that many progressive lawyers are drawn to the jihadist cause because of common views about the need to condemn American policies and radically alter the United States.

That doesn’t make any lawyer unfit to serve. It does, however, show us the fault line in the defining debate of our lifetime, the debate about what type of society we shall have. And that political context makes everyone’s record fair game. If lawyers choose to volunteer their services to the enemy in wartime, they are on the wrong side of that fault line, and no one should feel reluctant to say so.

Muslims in “Disbelief” Over Pushback
in the [color:1b68=#000]Netherlands


What is unbelievable is that no one is asking
why the Dutch are pushing back!


Dear Elaine,

Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders’ Party for Freedom won local elections in a surprise vote two weeks ago (see story below).

This comes on the heels of the Swiss referendum banning minarets on mosques, which passed with 58% of the vote.

Predictably, Muslims and politically correct government officials and commentators are reacting with disbelief and warnings of a new wave of “hate.”

Here’s the question people should be asking.

Why are so many people, in two countries noted for their tolerance, pluralism, and commitment to multiculturalism, pushing back with their votes?

Clearly, increasing numbers of Europeans have reached a point where they have lost patience with the Islamization of their countries.

Clearly, Islamic militancy, expressions of supremacy, and an unwillingness by most Muslims to assimilate have pushed more and more Europeans to the breaking point. In spite of threats and criticisms by Muslim leaders, government leaders, academics, and the media, these Europeans are making their concerns known with their votes.

For years Europeans have been tolerant. Their reward has been the exploitation of their tolerance by the intolerance of radical Islam.

There is a lesson here for America and Canada. Just last week, two men were assaulted by an Islamist at a Muslim Day event in Tallahassee, Florida. To see the short video, click here.

Dutch far-right breakthrough met with Muslim disbelief

By Mariette le Roux (AFP) – Mar 4, 2010

ALMERE, Netherlands — Muslims in a Dutch city where the party of anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders won local elections reacted with shock and anger Thursday, fearing his victory would fan animosity.

"I am afraid that it will lead to more hatred," said 20-year-old student Sakina Buyatui, a Dutch-born resident of Almere, a city of nearly 190,000 people near Amsterdam where a third of the population is of immigrant origin.

In a show of strength ahead of June general elections, Wilders' Party for Freedom (PVV) came first with 21.6 percent of the vote in Almere in Wednesday's poll.

"This is bad for Almere," said Buyatui, wearing an Islamic headscarf at the central station, where people of Turkish, Moroccan and Suriname descent, called "allochtonen" in Dutch, rub shoulders seamlessly with indigenous compatriots.

"It is terrible," agreed 35-year-old computer sciences student Kadriye Kacar, born in the Netherlands like her parents and grandparents, who were of Turkish descent.

"People are looking at us in a new way today as if they are thinking: 'We won and you are leaving'.

"I don't wear a headscarf normally," she added, "but I have decided to start doing so now out of protest. Other people in my community are planning to do the same; we will protest until Wilders is gone."

The far-right swing was a hot topic in Almere, where women in headscarves and long, traditional gowns huddled in small groups on the main shopping street and Wilders' name could be heard spat out in disgust.

Wilders campaigns for a ban on headscarves for public servants, a halt to immigration from Muslim countries and a moratorium on the erection of mosques in his bid to "stop the Islamisation of the Netherlands".

Henny Kreeft, leader of the Dutch Muslim Party, described Wilders' victory as "very, very sad". The party also contested Almere but got no seats.

Wilders' success "is based on a fear behind which there is no truth", Kreeft told AFP.

"Mr Wilders has been spewing a whole lot of nonsense about Islamisation and security: the more people heard it I suppose the more they thought it was true."

The PVV has nine of 150 seats in the Dutch parliament, and five of the country's 25 European parliament seats.

Some polls suggest the PVV is now the most popular party in the Netherlands, traditionally seen as a bastion of tolerance.

Wilders shock to the Dutch political system

After his party's success, Wilders told Muslims in Almere they had nothing to fear "as long as they obey the law".

"He is creating hatred, he is going too far," a woman with a headscarf told AFP, declining to identify herself.

"This could become a serious problem," added 48-year-old Muslim businessman Walli Hyrat. "It is very difficult to take the headscarf away from Muslim people."

But one 19-year-old waiter, who would not give his name "because it may create problems at work", said he voted for Wilders.

"Too much attention and resources are spent on Muslims," he said.

"I have to work here to earn money for my studies," he added. "I don't get any help because the leftist parties in government reserve all that for the poor, most of whom are Muslims."

Another Wilders supporter, a 62-year-old pensioner, said his concern was for security.

"We are afraid of walking alone in places where groups of young allochtonen hang around looking for trouble," he said. "Wilders will give us commandos to patrol the city and will ensure that repeat offenders are put out of the Netherlands."

But a 61-year-old woman who immigrated to the Netherlands from Turkey in 1976 said she feared Wilders' rise would drive a wedge between hitherto peaceful neighbours.

"Things are going to change," she said. "This is a really bad development."

Politically Correct Media Bias on Display
What you DIDN’T See in the Article Below

On Monday, ACT! for America sent an Action Alert to our Virginia members, urging them to contact the House of Delegates to protest the decision to have imam Johari Abdul-Malik give the opening prayer at the House session yesterday.

Below is The Washington Post story, a prime example of politically correct media bias. While there are 11 lines devoted to allegations and concerns about Abdul-Malik, there are 29 lines providing various expressions of defense of him. Hardly fair and balanced.

And not one line that actually quotes what he has said that causes concern.

Such as when Abdul-Malik compared the conviction and life sentence of an Islamic terrorist to the civil rights struggle:


“Our whole community is under siege. They don't see this as a case of criminality. They see it as a civil rights case. As a frontal attack on their community….The feeling I get here on a daily basis must be what it was like to be a member of Martin Luther King Jr.’s church following the case of Rosa Parks. People always ask, 'What is the latest from the courthouse?'”
Or when he defended a Muslim cleric who got a life sentence for counseling others to wage war against the U.S. with these words:

“There is a view many Muslims have when they come to America that you could not be arrested for something you say….but now they have discovered they are not free to speak their minds.”
Apparently, The Washington Post couldn’t cut a few of the 29 lines defending Abdul-Malik to actually tell its readers what he has said.

And at the end, notice how the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) once again, right on cue, engages in the propaganda technique of name calling.

Have you signed our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR? There’s still time.




Boycott urged for Muslim imam's prayer in Virginia House

Abdul-Malik says critics are wrong about him.
(Jahi Chikwendiu - Washington Post)
By Anita Kumar and William Wan

Washington Post Staff Writers
Thursday, March 11, 2010


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/10/AR2010031003909.html?hpid=newswell

RICHMOND -- Hundreds of people are urging legislators to boycott the House of Delegates' floor session on Thursday, when a Falls Church imam whom they accuse of condoning violence and defending terrorism is set to deliver the opening prayer.

The imam, Johari Abdul-Malik, and many other leaders in the Muslim and interfaith communities say the accusations are false.

Two of the Sept. 11 hijackers briefly worshiped at his mosque, the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, and one of its former imams, Anwar al-Aulaqi, has been linked to accused terrorists and subsequently denounced by the mosque, one of the largest in the United States.

But Abdul-Malik was not affiliated with the mosque in 2001, when the Sept. 11 attacks occurred. In recent years, he has made statements following the arrest of Muslims on terrorism charges, arguing for due process, civil rights and fair sentencing.

"To try to cast me as someone who's a terrorist and closed-minded -- they picked the wrong guy," he said.

Soon after Sept. 11, Abdul-Malik was featured in paid ads produced by a group of national Muslim organizations, which denounced terrorism and the attacks. He has condemned terrorism and Osama bin Laden on "The O'Reilly Factor" and other television programs.

Still, letters and calls have poured into legislative offices since Friday, when a handful of concerned delegates let community activists know that Abdul-Malik was coming to Richmond.

"He's an apologist for people who commit criminal acts," said James Lafferty, chairman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force. The group, along with the Traditional Values Coalition and Act for America, will hold a rally outside the state Capitol on Thursday morning.

Abdul-Malik said he was warned recently that similar negative comments were made about another imam -- Mohamed Magid, head of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque in Sterling -- when he gave the prayer at the General Assembly two years ago.

"All they're doing is showing that racism still lives in the Old Dominion," he said. "But at the same time, there's a new Dominion. That's what we're going to show people."

Del. Adam Ebbin (D-Alexandria) said he has no regrets about asking Abdul-Malik to give the prayer in the House. "The imam is a peace-loving man," he said.

Many of the letters have asked House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford) to revoke Abdul-Malik's invitation, but Howell's chief of staff, G. Paul Nardo, said no such action is planned. The House's practice is generally to allow delegates to invite religious leaders of differing faiths, he said.

Ebbin said he is concerned that Abdul-Malik's presence will cause a disturbance, but added: "I haven't seen any substantiated reason to ask him not to come. . . . I hope it would be a peaceful occasion where people could reflect."

Allies in the interfaith community have responded in support of the imam. When Abdul-Malik prays in Richmond, the Rev. Clark Lobenstine, executive director of InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington, will be sitting next to him on the assembly floor.

As one of the most active and outspoken imams in the D.C. area, especially in the interfaith community, Abdul-Malik has given prayers at Howard University, where he was the college's first Muslim chaplain; at the U.S. Capitol for Muslim staff members; and for past D.C. mayors.

Ebbin sent a letter to his 99 colleagues Thursday defending his choice of Abdul-Malik and saying that any concerns about him were driven by "false rumors propagated on the Internet."

Del. C. Todd Gilbert (R-Shenandoah), who opposed a member of Dar al-Hijrah's board being appointed by former governor Timothy M. Kaine to the state immigration commission, said he has concerns about Ebbin's choice.

"I don't think anyone has any problem with this being a Muslim prayer," he said. "This particular imam and this particular mosque have been a flashpoint for controversy because of the teachings they promote and the connections they have had."

Abdul-Malik would be the first imam to deliver the opening prayer in the House or Senate during this year's legislative session, although others have done so in the past, according to the clerks' offices.

"We're seeing this over and over. Whenever any Muslim seeks to engage in the political process or even have input in that arena, they come under attack," said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Muslim civil rights group Council on American-Islamic Relations. "There's a whole cottage industry of Muslim bashers that's formed to do this stuff."

Custodian of U.S. Mosques Advocates
Killing Americans


Two weeks ago we formally announced our 2010 National Conference and Legislative Briefing in Washington, DC, June 27 – June 29. In just 14 days, 2/3 of the available Patriot Premium registrations have been booked, and people are already registering for the Patriot registration as well.

To find out more details simply click here to view the conference flyer, or log on here to register.

Last year we had a dozen Members of Congress brief our attendees on issues ranging from terrorism to stealth jihad. This year we’ve added much, much more to the program.

All registrants will be able to participate in both the full-day conference on Monday and the legislative briefing on Tuesday. All registrations include the Welcome reception on Sunday, June 27th, and the Gala Banquet on Monday night, June 28th.

So even if you aren’t able to take advantage of the Patriot Premium registration, this conference will be chock-full of the kind of exciting events, powerful speakers, and timely information you have come to expect from ACT! for America.

The WorldNetDaily story below demonstrates why our 2010 National Conference and Legislative Briefing is so important and so timely.

Shouldn’t America be concerned that the organization that holds title to hundreds of mosques in America publicly advocates the killing of anyone who opposes the forced spreading of Islam????

Shouldn’t America be concerned that this organization believes Islam has a divine right to take control of any political system in order to establish Islam as the political system on earth?




HOMELAND INSECURITY

Custodian of U.S. mosques promotes slaying Americans

NAIT: 'It is the duty of Islam to fight him until he is killed'




Posted: March 07, 2010
10:30 pm Eastern

©️ 2010 WorldNetDaily


http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=127262


The custodian of most of the major mosques in America acts as a front for the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America, and publishes and distributes Islamic literature that exhorts Muslims to "kill" any Westerners who get in the way of spreading Islam, WND has learned.

"No political system or material power should put hindrances in the way of preaching Islam. If someone does this, then it is the duty of Islam to fight him until either he is killed or until he declares his submission," asserts an Islamic publication distributed by the North American IslamicTrust.

NAIT holds title to more than 300 mosques in America – including the large Islamic center outside Washington where the Fort Hood terrorist and some of the 9/11 hijackers worshipped.

Get "Muslim Mafia," the book that exposed CAIR from the inside out, autographed, from WND's Superstore!


NAIT also owns and controls the mosque in Orange County, Calif., that converted al-Qaida spokesman Adam Gadahn to Islam.

Gadahn in a video released Sunday exhorted Muslims serving in the U.S. military to follow in the footsteps of accused Fort Hood terrorist Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. He also called for attacks on mass transportation, along with assassinations or kidnappings of key figures in the government, industry and media.

The Justice Department recently blacklisted NAIT as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to funnel millions of dollars to Palestinian terrorists.

NAIT Trustee Gaddoor Saidi was individually listed as an unindicted co-conspirator, as well, in the Holy Land Foundation case -- the largest terror finance trial in U.S. history, which ended in guilty verdicts on all 108 counts.

In addition, the government identified NAIT as a front for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood in America. Hamas, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995, has murdered 17 Americans and injured hundreds of other U.S. citizens.

Chicago-based NAIT also handles the finances for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Students Association, and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups, which, shockingly, make up the Muslim establishment in America, according to the new book, "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America."

The Muslim groups have been vehemently protesting the FBI's use of undercover informants in mosques and its recent seizure of several mosques in America. Last year, a mosque leader in Detroit was fatally wounded in a shootout with FBI agents who sought his arrest on felony charges.

Through its subsidiary American Trust Publications, also headquartered in Chicago,
NAIT publishes and distributes the pro-offensive-jihad book "Milestones," by the late Muslim Brotherhood leader Sayyid Qutb of Egypt, Osama bin Laden's spiritual father.

"Jihad in Islam is simply a name for striving to make this system of life dominant in the world," the NAIT tome asserts. "Wherever an Islamic community exists which is a concrete example of the Divinely ordained system of life, it has a God-given right to step forward and take control of the political authority so that it may establish the Divine system on earth."

"Milestones" preaches that Shariah law should be implemented "by force" if Western societies resist the barbaric Islamic code.

"Bringing about the enforcement of the Divine Law and the abolition of man-made laws cannot be achieved only through preaching," it says. "When obstacles and practical difficulties are put in its way, it has no recourse but to remove them by force."

"Islam has the right to take the initiative," the book claims. "It has the right to destroy all obstacles in the form of institutions and traditions. It is the duty of Islam to annihilate all such systems."

Chillingly, Qutb's strategy dovetails with one outlined in
a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood manifesto recently declassified by the Justice Department.

It lists NAIT among Brotherhood, or "Ikhwan," front groups participating in a seditious conspiracy of "eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within" through a "grand jihad," with the ultimate goal of making Islam "victorious over all religions."

The secret manifesto was found in a terrorist suspect's home in Northern Virginia and entered as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

According to "Muslim Mafia," NAIT was founded in 1973 with massive funding from the Saudis. It was formed as an investment bank for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America, acquiring title to more than 300 mosques and Islamic schools in the U.S.

Current NAIT Chairman Muzammil Siddiqi appears in secret Brotherhood documents as a high-ranking member of its shura council in America, according to documents cited in "Muslim Mafia."

NAIT did not return phone calls seeking comment.

MORE VICTORIES: This Would Not Have
Happened Two Years Ago
This is PROGRESS!!!
View an Important Message
from Brigitte Gabriel

Dear Elaine,

In the few years after Brigitte Gabriel founded American Congress for Truth, and prior to her launching ACT! for America, she was frequently asked, “What can we do? Can we successfully fight the threat of radical Islam?”

Few would have believed then what happened this past week. Three different local political party conventions here in America passed resolutions acknowledging the Constitution as the law of the land—and opposing any effort to implement shariah Islamic law in this country.

These efforts could well lead, this year, to some state political party platforms containing language opposing any implementation of shariah law in America.

THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED TWO YEARS AGO!!

So what’s different? Today we have a thriving, growing ACT! for America. These political party convention efforts were spearheaded by ACT! for America chapter leaders and members.

Brigitte’s vision launched ACT! for America—but it wouldn’t have been possible to get where we are without you.

Please click here for an important, 4 minute video message from Brigitte.

And to add your support to our ACT! IMPACT! 2010 campaign, please click here.

This is Why Islamists Name-Call

The WorldNetDaily story below captures how a Muslim leader in North Carolina “imploded” during a radio interview.

Jibril Hough, a vocal critic of U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick, has followed the Islamist playbook by using standard propaganda techniques to attack Rep. Myrick.

Hough’s implosion on the radio reveals why Islamists engage in such “attack the messenger” tactics. When challenged, they cannot deny the facts about radical Islam and its many tentacles into America. So they attack, hoping to divert attention from the truth they’re desperately trying to hide.

The story below is most revealing. If you have time to listen to the interview, that’s even more revealing.



HOMELAND INSECURITY

Muslim leader implodes on air


Key critic of Rep. Sue Myrick exposed as radical by radio jock



Posted: February 28, 2010
3:30 am Eastern

©️ 2010 WorldNetDaily



Jibril Hough
A Muslim leader who has tried to portray the founder of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus in Washington as an extremist "hatemonger" was himself exposed as an extremist on a popular radio program.

For years, Jibril Hough has represented himself and his North Carolina mosque as "moderate," while putting Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., on the defensive as an anti-Muslim fanatic who "shoots from the hip" when sounding the alarm about homegrown Islamic terrorism. Myrick, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, co-founded the Capitol Hill caucus after 9/11 to educate Americans about the growing threat from jihadists.

But during an in-studio interview Friday with Charlotte radio personality Keith Larson of WBT-AM, Hough was confronted with documents revealing his mosque – the Islamic Center of Charlotte – is owned and controlled by an organization connected to a plot to funnel millions of dollars to Islamic terrorists.

The North American Islamic Trust holds the deed to ICC, an 800-member Sunni mosque located on five acres at 1700 Progress Lane in Charlotte. The U.S. Justice Department recently blacklisted its owner NAIT as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror finance case in U.S. history. The government also identified NAIT as a front for Hamas and the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America.

Get "Muslim Mafia," the book that exposed CAIR from the inside out, autographed, from WND's Superstore!

Saudi-funded NAIT owns the title to hundreds of radical mosques across the country, including the notorious 9/11 mosque in Northern Virginia – Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center (deed) – which helped some of the hijackers obtain housing and IDs and also counseled the Fort Hood terrorist and several other known terrorists.

Hough, ICC's spokesman, at first expressed surprise when confronted with the information, claiming he'd never before seen the deed and did not know NAIT was named in a federal terror probe.

"I'm not aware of this information here," he said, reviewing the documents.

Pressed by Larson, the ICC spokesman later admitted NAIT is the "parent" of his mosque, but quickly added that he was not a member of the mosque when NAIT took control in 1992.

"I was not involved in the decision to allow NAIT to be the (title) holder," he said.

Asked if he were a member of NAIT, Hough paused before answering: "Not necessarily."

Larson said it looked as if his mosque was acting as a "front" for an organization tied to terrorism, and wondered why Hough was not more concerned.

"It's concerning, yes," Hough conceded.

"To everybody else it looks not just concerning but absolutely damning," the host responded. "Do you understand that?"

"What else can I say?" Hough said.

"Will you disassociate yourself" from NAIT? Larson asked.

"I told you I was going to look into it and was going to take it to my board," Hough snapped.

As reported in the bestselling book, "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," current NAIT trustee Gaddoor Saidi also shows up on the Justice Department's list of unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation scheme to fund Hamas terrorists. The Holy Land case ended in 2008 with guilty verdicts on all 108 counts.

A Muslim convert, Hough [pronounced: Huff] denied being affiliated with Hamas, but then proceeded to defend the terrorist group, claiming "they haven't attacked Americans."

In fact, Hamas has murdered 17 Americans and injured hundreds of other U.S. citizens in suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks in Israel. The U.S government designated Hamas a terrorist organization in 1995.

Hough also said he had a problem with the definition of "terrorism," and suggested that the U.S. and Israel are committing the only real terrorism by retaliating against Muslim terrorists and extremists.

"What is 'terrorism?'" Hough said. "Terrorism against Iraqis, Palestinians, Afghanis?"

Hough also denied affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egypt-based worldwide jihadist movement which gave rise to Hamas and al-Qaida.

However, current NAIT Chairman Muzammil Siddiqi appears in secret Brotherhood documents as a high-ranking member of its shura council in America, according to documents cited in "Muslim Mafia."

"Within the organizational structure of NAIT, there have been numerous groups and individuals identified as being part of a covert network of revolutionaries," the FBI warned in a previously classified internal memo about the Muslim Brotherhood.

"This faction of Muslims have [sic] declared war on the United States, Israel, and any other country they deem as an enemy of Islam," the memo continues, as quoted in "Muslim Mafia." "The common bond between these various organizations is both religious and political, with the underlying common goal being to further the holy war (Islamic jihad)."

Justice recently declassified [url=http://www.wnd.com/files/NAIT-MB Manifesto.pdf]a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood manifesto[/url] that lists ICC's owner NAIT among Brotherhood front groups participating in a seditious conspiracy of "eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within" through a "grand jihad," with the ultimate goal of making Islam "victorious over all religions."

The secret manifesto was found in a terrorist suspect's home in Northern Virginia and entered as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

According to "Muslim Mafia," NAIT was founded in 1973 with massive funding from the Saudis. It was formed as an investment vehicle for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America, acquiring title to more than 300 mosques and Islamic schools in the U.S.

ICC also runs an Islamic school called the Charlotte Islamic Academy.

Hough's radical ties are not limited to ICC and NAIT. He once headed a Jew-bashing organization called the Islamic Political Party of America.

IPPA issued a press release in 2003, when Hough was identified as the chairman of the group's national board, that suggests the Jews were behind 9/11, a rumor that first appeared in the Arab press and was summarily discredited.

"But the biased Western media would not cover this story, yet they also neglected to report that 4,000 Jews employed at the World Trade Center were absent at (the) WTC on 9/11," Hough's organization wrote in the press release. "Nor did they report on the thousands who saw WTC Building Seven fall without a plane hitting it."

The same press release also defended convicted terrorist Sami al-Arian, among other convicted terrorists, such as cop-killer Jamil al-Amin.

As of 2008, Hough was identified as president of the IPPA of North Carolina.

The revealing radio interview with Hough took place the day after Myrick agreed to meet with local Muslims in a local town hall meeting to hear their complaints. Hough demanded she meet at his mosque, but the venue was changed to a government building to accommodate Shiite and Sufi Muslims as well.

Myrick said she was open to meeting at a mosque at a future date.

In the first part of the WBT interview, Hough took the opportunity to criticize Myrick, who planned to join him in the interview but had to fly back to Washington for a hearing and could not participate.

"Sometimes when she shoots from the hip, it looks like she's painting with a broad brush," Hough told Larson.

"People with an [anti-Muslim] agenda are whispering in her ear," he claimed.

"I doubt some of the information she's been fed is correct," Hough continued. "It's clouded her judgment."

As a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Myrick receives highly classified briefings from the FBI, CIA and National Counter Terrorism Center.

Hough named bestselling author and JihadWatch.com director Robert Spencer as one of the people he believes is "whispering" in Myrick's ear.

"Spencer clearly has an agenda against Muslims," Hough insisted.

Taking Offense

Have you ever wondered why 80 year old ladies are frisked at airports while the “Underwear Bomber” was able to get through security?

If you answered that political correctness has a lot to do with it, you win the prize! “Random” searches are done to avoid any pretense of “profiling”—which is done to avoid giving “offense” to Muslims.

But no matter how sensitive our security officials try to be in order to avoid “offending” Muslims, no matter what tactics they propose using to keep us safe, some Muslims still take offense.

No one ever bothers to ask if all the law-abiding people who fly on airplanes are ever offended by the inconveniences and indignities imposed on them.

The short commentary below is very instructive.





Islamists Play Shell Games with Security

by David J. Rusin • Feb 23, 2010 at 9:16 am
http://www.islamist-watch.org/blog/2010/02/islamists-play-shell-games-with-security


Despite the countless terror attacks perpetrated by their co-religionists, some Muslims still have the chutzpah to demand that security protocols conform to supposed Islamic sensitivities. But like a typical shell game, every time we think we know which procedures they grudgingly will tolerate, we discover that we have been hoodwinked yet again.

Responding to
security measures implemented after the attempt to bomb a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day, CAIR characteristically charged that "the new guidelines, under which anyone traveling from or through 13 Muslim-majority nations will be required to go through enhanced screening techniques before boarding flights, … amount to religious and ethnic profiling." CAIR's proposed alternative: "First look at behavior, not at faith or skin color. Then spend what it takes to obtain more bomb-sniffing dogs, to install more sophisticated bomb-detection equipment, and to train security personnel in identifying the behavior of real terror suspects."

All are fine ideas. But in reality, Islamists oppose each of them:

Scrutinizing behavior. Consider the "
flying imams" imbroglio, where six Muslims who seemed to exhibit "the behavior of real terror suspects" were removed from a plane before takeoff in 2006. Passengers and crew members became alarmed when the men spoke loudly in Arabic, refused to sit in assigned seats, and requested unneeded seatbelt extenders. How did CAIR respond? By alleging religious discrimination and suing everyone in sight — with some success. True, the imams were fingered originally by alert citizens rather than dedicated security officers. But should we believe that CAIR's reaction would have been different otherwise?

Bomb-sniffing dogs. Given that some Muslims see dogs as unclean, using them for security purposes often provokes Islamist criticism. Britain has experienced a
litany of canine controversies, while a prominent Canadian Muslim recently voiced concerns about dogs patrolling Vancouver. The issue of police dogs also arose when a Detroit-based radical imam was killed in an October FBI raid. According to the Detroit News, the attorney representing his widow "said it was needlessly confrontational to send a dog after Abdullah because Muslims view dogs as unclean and anyone attacked by a dog could react violently"; an FBI canine was shot dead by the imam. How long until bomb-sniffing dogs in U.S. airports face objections?

Bomb-detection equipment.
Body scanners are about as sophisticated as it gets, but now we know that these, too, run afoul of Islamist sensibilities. "The Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) emphasizes that a general and public use of such scanners is against the teachings of Islam, natural law, and all religions and cultures that stand for decency and modesty," the group explains in a fatwa issued on February 9. CAIR, which had championed "sophisticated bomb-detection equipment" just a month earlier, backed the ruling.

The shell game continues, with the Fiqh Council offering yet another idea: "FCNA appreciates the alternate provision of pat-down search" and advises Muslims to avail themselves of this option over the body scanners. After all, no Muslims balk at being touched,
right?

[size=25]Even USA Today Joins the Chorus

British Intelligence Reports Increase in
Terror Suspects Trying to Fly to the U.S.

Click Here To Help Us Reach Our Goal of “1010 for 2010”


Dear Elaine,

The week before last, Richard Cohen, writing in the Washington Post, criticized the Obama administration’s handling of national security and terrorism.

Then last week USA Today chimed in (see the op-ed below).

We take no delight in criticism for criticism’s sake being leveled at President Obama and his administration. Indeed, we would much prefer that the Obama administration be doing the right things to keep our nation safe than to watch him be criticized from those all the way from the political right to the political left.

But when even those who are left of center launch the kind of pointed attacks we are seeing, there should be no doubt something is seriously wrong, the administration is failing us, and our safety and security are threatened!

Please note this excerpt from the op-ed below:

“CIA Director Leon Panetta and other top officials agreed last week that an attack by al-Qaeda is likely in the next three to six months.”
To underscore this, British intelligence has confirmed that the number of potential terror suspects abroad trying to board planes to the United States has substantially increased within the past several weeks.

We are now a little more than halfway through our 30 day ACT! IMPACT! 2010 campaign, and we are 45% of the way to our goal of getting 1010 new monthly contributing Patriot Partners and Contributing Members who make one-time gifts.

If you haven’t yet responded, we need to hear from you! Simply click here to make a monthly commitment or a one-time gift. Our online form is VeriSign secured and easy to use.

If you prefer to make a one-time gift with a check, please click here to print out a reply form to mail with your check.

2010 is going to be a pivotal year in the ongoing effort to roll back the rising tide of radical Islam. If we are to successfully launch programs like the 2010 Congressional Scorecard, we need your help and support!

So please click here and help us continue pushing toward our goal!

National security team fails to inspire confidence

Officials’ handling of Christmas Day attack looks like amateur hour.


Ever since the botched Christmas Day plot to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner, the Obama administration's national security officials have struggled to assure the public that they know exactly what they're doing.

So far, they're achieving the opposite, and they're needlessly adding some jitters in the process:

-- CIA Director Leon Panetta and other top officials agreed last week that an attack by al-Qaeda is likely in
the next three to six months. The warning is bound to frighten the public, with no obvious benefit beyond the ability to say "I told you so."

-- Top administration officials revealed last week that bombing suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was again cooperating with authorities. Great. But the news pretty much negates earlier claims that no intelligence was lost when Abdulmutallab was prematurely read his rights.

-- In Senate testimony, National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair had
a "Duh!" moment as he hit his forehead and acknowledged that authorities fumbled the initial questioning of Abdulmutallab by failing to call in the high-value interrogation group, which was created to question terrorism suspects. Refreshingly candid, yes, but not a statement that inspires confidence. Especially when the same day, at another Senate hearing, FBI Director Robert Mueller testified that the high-value unit was still in its "formation stages" and that "there was no time" to get it to Detroit.

All of this follows the string of blunders that allowed Abdulmutallab to carry explosives onto a U.S.- bound plane in the first place. The chaos that followed his arrest now looks just as bad.

According to news accounts, Abdulmutallab was questioned by, and cooperated with, the FBI for a grand total of 50 minutes before going into surgery. When he emerged, he became combative, asked for a lawyer and was read his rights. (At the time, remember, no one knew whether other bombers had been dispatched simultaneously.)

A decision of such magnitude should have involved the top brass in intelligence and law enforcement. But Blair, Mueller and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have all testified they were not consulted. Mueller said the decision to read the suspect his Miranda rights was made by agents in the field.

In television appearances on Sunday, John Brennan, the White House deputy national security adviser, chafed at the criticism the intelligence community is getting. He said it was demoralizing and urged cheerleading instead. But cheerleading doesn't get problems fixed, and it's undeniable that there are plenty to address.

Some problems, such as the post-arrest misjudgments, are of the Obama administration's making. Others, such as the intelligence failures preceding the incident, are institutional. There is, however, a common denominator: slipshod coordination leading to bad judgment.

If Panetta is right about another attack, there's not much time for national security officials to get their act together.

The Call to Jihad:

“Radicalizing” Muslim Youth in America


Dear Elaine,

We now frequently read how people like the Ft. Hood jihadist and the “Underwear Bomber” have been “radicalized.” But have you noticed that very few officials in government or members of the “establishment” media ask what is “radicalizing” these people?

This past Tuesday, our friends at Front Page Magazine conducted an interview with Dave Gaubatz (see below, highlights added), co-author of the explosive blockbuster book Muslim Mafia.

Here’s one excerpt from the interview:


The message is clear: “Islam is a religion of Jihad, in peace and in war. Jihad is one of the noblest principles of Islam.” The manual where this message is found is titled, “A Guide for The Young Muslim.” The manual further describes Jihad as being physical fighting against their enemies and oppressors. It is admired to be a “martyr.” This book was found in northern VA, and a CAIR pamphlet was beside it.
Every homegrown jihadist arrested last year either acknowledged or had access to materials calling for jihad.

A primary goal of ACT! for America is, over time, to persuade enough policy makers and elected officials, at all levels, that our national security strategy must include action that addresses the ideological “call to jihad.”

Another topic Gaubatz addresses in the interview is the lawsuit CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) has filed against him. He says that CAIR executives have said things that “amount as a threat” against him!

Did you know we have nearly 40,000 signatures on our petition calling for a government investigation of CAIR? If you haven’t yet signed, please click here and help push us over 40,000!

Islam’s Child Martyrs in America
Posted By Jamie Glazov On February 9, 2010 @ 12:13 am In FrontPage

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Dave Gaubatz, the first U.S. civilian (1811) Federal Agent deployed to Iraq in 2003. He is the owner of DG Counter-terrorism Publishing [2]. He is currently conducting a 50 State Counter-terrorism Research Tour (CTRT). He is the co-author (with Paul Sperry) of the new book, Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America. [3] He can be contacted at davegaubatz@gmail.com [4] and his site is MuslimMafiaInternational.com [5].

[6]

FP: Dave Gaubatz, welcome to Frontpage Interview.

I would like to talk to you today about jihadi torture videos that have come into your possession and also about Islam’s child martyrs in America.

But first, give us some updates on your new research in terms of counter-terrorism.

Gaubatz: Thank you Jamie.

I just returned from DC, MD, PA, WV, VA, and NJ conducting various counter-terrorism (CT) research. I would like to say that while various realms of our government are doing an outstanding job in protecting our families from future Islamic based terrorist attacks, we have several serious problems. One of them is that our President doesn’t even officially have any type of plans on a “War on Terrorism.” Sadly, we are being overtaken by these groups. I meet Americans and other concerned citizens from Canada and the UK, and they know America and their countries are slowly/patiently being overtaken from within, while their leaders are ignoring the national threats.

FP: Give us some specifics on what you have recently discovered.

Gaubatz: I am beginning to see more and more violent material published and distributed to young Muslim children advocating killing Jews and Christians, and how to conduct treason/sedition inside America and to ultimately take our country down as we know it.

CAIR (Muslim Brotherhood) strongly informs its followers to not assist our law enforcement agencies and to not conduct slander and backbiting against Islamic leaders. Within Sharia law there are severe penalties for undermining the efforts of the ‘Islamic Ummah’ (Nation) and their specific target of a worldwide Ummah under Sharia law.

I have been provided hundreds of DVD’s originally videotaped by Islamic terrorist groups while they conducted torture and killings of people (even Muslims) who have helped their enemies (Israel, America, UK, Canada, etc…) to further (in their opinion) oppress the Muslim Ummah.

FP: Talk a bit more about these videos.

Gaubatz: This part of my work is very depressing because I have to review the most extreme animal actions by terrorist groups on innocent people, to include young children. I reviewed hundreds of videos the American people and law enforcement do not get to see, and our government does not want the American people to see. Why? I will explain later. I witnessed innocent people being slaughtered like animals. The Islamic terrorist groups had children cut and behead a fellow Muslim. In addition several young Muslim men had to stand in line and wait their turn to have their tongues removed by an al-Qaeda member with a razor blade. Several men had to put their arm on a board and a terrorist used a baseball to break his arm. Then he had to put his other arm out for the same treatment.

These are the type of people CAIR supports and even our government supports. The IRS grants CAIR and other such organizations non-profit organizational status and tax free benefits, while you and I are forced to pay taxes to support the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood. Something doesn’t seem right and politicians who protect these groups will lose in the end. The American people will not allow our children to suffer at the hands of terrorist groups.

FP: Share with us how Muslim children are being taught to kill “oppressors” of Islam, even inside America.

Gaubatz: For many years I have tracked the materials coming into America from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan specifically. Based on my research, these two countries are responsible for distributing jihadi materials, not just to adults, but to Muslim youth right here in America.

The message is clear: “Islam is a religion of Jihad, in peace and in war. Jihad is one of the noblest principles of Islam.” The manual where this message is found is titled, “A Guide for The Young Muslim.” The manual further describes Jihad as being physical fighting against their enemies and oppressors. It is admired to be a “martyr.” This book was found in northern VA, and a CAIR pamphlet was beside it.

“Martyrdom means transfusion of blood into a society, especially a society from anemia. It is the martyr who infuses fresh blood into the veins of the society.” The manual in which this teaching was contained was found in VA (again alongside a CAIR brochure). It is titled “The Martyr” and was originally printed in Houston, TX.

I would like to explain how the above statement is applicable here in America and reaches Muslim children. When Maj. Hasan murdered the innocent people at Fort Hood, he was trying to revitalize the Muslim people to not lose hope, to continue pursuing the agenda of al-Qaeda and others, and most importantly to let them know there are “martyrs” working inside America who are ready to die for Islam. He is 100% correct. Sleeper cells are alive and well not only in America, but Canada, the UK, and most countries worldwide.

Video: “This is ACT! for America”

by Guy Rodgers, Executive Director

www.actforamerica.org

Dear Elaine,

Last year, after assembling footage of ACT! for America events, chapter leader activities, and our lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill, we created a video entitled “This is ACT! for America.”

Just this past week we posted this exciting video on YouTube. We hope that when you click here to view it you will be as proud as we are of all that has happened in a short time and everything our organization is accomplishing.

None of our successes, our organizational growth, or our increasing influence, would be possible without the faithful financial support of members like you.

We are now 14 days into our 30 day “ACT! IMPACT! 2010” campaign. As the thermometer at the right shows, we are 31% of our way toward our goal of 1,010 new monthly contributing Patriot Partners and Contributing Members, those who make one-time contributions.

If you are one of those who have responded, we thank you for helping us raise the funds we need for our first three projects of this year:



  • The Congressional Scorecard
  • “Effective Contact” online grassroots lobbying software and service
  • The full-page ad calling for a government investigation of CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) in Washington, DC’s “Roll Call” newspaper.
If we are going to reach our 30 day goal we need to get 50% of the way there in the next few days.

If you haven’t yet responded, will you do so today by clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time gift?

(If you would like to make a one-time gift, but prefer to mail a check, please click here to print out a reply form to mail with your check.)

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In that case, a video is worth 10,000 words. The video “This is ACT! for America” tells the story that only video can tell.

And every person who has made a contribution, started a chapter, attended a chapter meeting, signed a petition, forwarded our emails, or told someone about us, is part of that story that is on its way to making history.

YOU are part of that story.

There are more chapters of the story yet to be written. Please click here and respond today so those chapters will be even more successful than the chapters that have been written so far.

Yours for America,


Guy Rodgers

P.S. Please feel free to forward this email to others so they, too, will have the opportunity to see this video.

The Fallout Continues

Dear Elaine,

The fallout continues after the Ft. Hood jihadist massacre and the near-miss terrorist act of the “Underwear Bomber.”





  • Our friend Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim, former Naval officer, and the president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, penned a commentary yesterday in which he correctly criticizes the Pentagon’s 84 page report that purported to assess the reasons for the Ft. Hood jihadist attack.

    If you would like to read Mr. Jasser’s insightful analysis please click here.

  • On Sunday, a Dallas Morning News article contained this chilling sentence:

    “But Fort Hood gunman Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan wasn't the only one working on a Texas Army base the day of the shooting who had links to radical Islamists.”

    The writer was referring to Louay Safi, a high-ranking official in ISNA, the Islamic Society of North America. The article notes that, in spite of Safi’s questionable public statements and connections with militant Muslims, he has been retained by the military to teach our soldiers about Islam!
  • In a February 5th article on our friend Steven Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) website, we read that Omar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “Underwear Bomber,” spent two weeks in Houston attending a course conducted by the AlMaghrib Institute.

    According to the article, this was the third AlMaghrib course Abdulmutallab had taken.

    This article tells us a great deal about the kind of “education” Abdulmutallab was getting—right here in the United States—and sheds light on what motivated Abdulmutallab to decide to engage in jihad.

    For instance, videotapes obtained by IPT show the Houston director of AlMaghrib glorifying jihad and honoring a man who was sentenced to life in prison for soliciting jihadists to wage war against the United States.

    The article begs the question, at what point do jihadists, who train others in jihad, lose their rights to free speech in our country?

What’s Going On Here?

Dear Elaine,



  • A February 2nd CNN story reports that some Democrats in the Congress are now joining Republicans in opposing President Obama’s decision to try terrorists like Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in civilian criminal courts.
  • The Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act, a high priority bill for ACT! for America, passed both the House and Senate with strong bi-partisan support.
  • Syndicated columnist Michael Barone, in an op-ed entitled “Easy on the Enemy,” wrote that, after President Obama’s outreach speeches to the Muslim world, “terrorists did not say, ‘Gosh, now that Obama is closing Guantanamo and terrorists are being given Miranda rights, I've got to change my mind and decide that the United States is a really nifty country and that freedom and democracy are good things after all.’”
  • Even Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, in the commentary posted below, made this remarkable statement: “There is almost nothing the Obama administration does regarding terrorism that makes me feel safer.” Wow.
What’s going on here?

These words and actions are more evidence of the tide turning in America. People are demanding leadership, action and answers.

We are now nine days into our 30 day “ACT! IMPACT! 2010” campaign, and we are 23% of the way to our goal of 1010 new Patriot Partners and Contributing Members to help us fund the first wave of our critical programs for this year.

Every person reading this email should be immensely encouraged by how the tide is turning. Because this means that everything we do this year will have a more powerful impact and have a greater potential for winning victories than at any time since ACT! for America was founded a little over two years ago!

That’s why now, more than ever, is the time for us to ACT!

We want to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to each of you who have already signed up to be a Patriot Partner or made a one-time gift as a Contributing Member.

Your “thank you” gift from us should be arriving at your home soon.

If you haven’t yet responded, and you can afford to do something, please click here and choose either the Patriot Partner monthly contribution option or the one-time gift Contributing Member option.

(If you’d like to mail a one-time gift, please click here to print out a reply form.)

If only 1 person in 100 getting this email responds today, we will reach our goal. Can we count on you to be that one person?

Every gift counts, no matter the size! Thank you!




Obama administration is tone-deaf to concerns about terrorism


By Richard Cohen
Tuesday, February 2, 2010


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/01/AR2010020102854.html

There is almost nothing the Obama administration does regarding terrorism that makes me feel safer. Whether it is guaranteeing captured terrorists that they will not be waterboarded, reciting terrorists their rights, or the legally meandering and confusing rule that some terrorists will be tried in military tribunals and some in civilian courts, what is missing is a firm recognition that what comes first is not the message sent to America's critics but the message sent to Americans themselves. When, oh when, will this administration wake up?

Bit by bit, circumstances are forcing President Obama and his aides to come to grips with reality. The
original plan to try Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the so-called Sept. 11 mastermind, in New York City has apparently been aborted. It finally occurred to the Justice Department that cordoning off much of Lower Manhattan and placing a security perimeter around the financial district not only would cost something like $200 million a year but also would destroy the economy of the area. A trial there would give KSM, as he is called, a second shot at devastating downtown New York.

It is amazing that no one thought this through. Published reports say that the
Justice Department informed Mayor Michael Bloomberg of its plan just about the time it was announced. This alacrity was clearly the product of some excitement down at Justice -- yet another chance to show the world that George W. Bush was gone and with him the odious attempts to treat terrorists as if they were, well, terrorists. A civilian trial! Right in the heart of Manhattan! Obama ought to ask his friend Attorney General Eric Holder what in the world he was thinking -- just as we might ask Obama why he has such faith in Holder's judgment.

In a similar example of poor judgment, an undoubtedly delighted
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was told he had something called Miranda rights and could, if he so chose, cease talking about allegedly attempting to blow up a jetliner as it approached Detroit on Christmas Day. Abdulmutallab was Mirandized after just 50 minutes of interrogation and he, having probably seen more than his share of "Law & Order" episodes, promptly shut up.

Increased Threat — Increased Opportunity
by Brigitte Gabriel


Dear Elaine,

Findings from a recent national poll (see story below, highlights added) confirm what we have been saying—Americans feel less safe and are losing confidence in the Obama administration to protect them from terrorism.

We ARE less safe. That is a fact. And that is the threat.

But with this increased threat comes a greater opportunity to combat the threat.

Because Americans are more concerned and more anxious, they are looking for answers, leadership, and action. Who will answer the call?

ACT! for America is poised to provide those answers, that leadership, and that action. For instance, while I can’t go into detail, as I write this we are working behind the scenes with Members of Congress to craft new legislation to better protect Americans from the threat of Islamic terrorism.

We have ambitious plans this year for a Congressional Scorecard, a Voter Guide, and a state-of-the-art online grassroots lobbying program to help you contact your Members of Congress more easily and effectively.

But we need YOUR HELP to step up and answer the call. No other organization in America is positioned to do what we can do this year to combat Islamic terrorism and make America safer.

If you haven’t already responded, will you join the ACT! IMPACT! 2010 campaign today? We need “1010 for 2010” to answer the call.

We need 505 people to become online monthly contributing Patriot Partners.

We need 505 people to become Contributing Members by making a one-time contribution (you can do so either online or by printing out a reply form and mailing a check).

When you click here, and make the biggest monthly or one-time gift you can afford, you will be part of the 1010 who are empowering ACT! for America to answer the call and meet the need.

For everyone who is able to financially help, now is not the time to sit on the sidelines. Now is the time to ACT!

Let history record that, in early 2010, patriotic Americans answered the call and helped set America on a new course in response to the threat of radical Islam and Islamic terrorism. We won’t be able to change the course overnight—but every journey starts with a first step.

This is the time for us to take a big step. Please become one of our “1010 for 2010” and click here to help us successfully launch our ACT! IMPACT! 2010 campaign.

Thank you!


Brigitte Gabriel




Public Detects A Softness On Terrorism

By RAGHAVAN MAYUR
http://www.investors.com/NewsAndAnalysis/Article.aspx?id=518855


Americans are concerned about the Obama administration's approach to national security, with ideology a major influence on where they stand. As liberals support Obama's policies, nonliberals back tougher approaches.

These are the key findings from the latest IBD/TIPP poll of 923 Americans completed on Jan. 9. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.

Twelve percent of Americans list national security as the second-most important issue facing the country. Only the economy and jobs rank higher, with 49%.

An overarching read of the poll data is that Americans view administration policies as soft. Only liberals support them.

Security issues raised by the Christmas bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, are a case in point. Lawmakers last week questioned the wisdom of trying Abdulmutallab in civilian courts instead of a military tribunal.

It's not clear whether Abdulmutallab, a potential treasure trove of intelligence, was read his Miranda rights too early, before the intelligence agencies extracted all the intelligence from him. That becomes more relevant since Abdulmutallab told the FBI he'd been trained and armed by al-Qaida operatives in Yemen and that we could expect more bombers coming from that country.

Most Americans (61%) are against giving Miranda rights to captured terrorists; only 31% support the policy. By ideology, 74% of conservatives and 54% of moderates oppose it. But a majority of liberals 51%) support the policy.

The ideological split can also been seen on whether the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should be closed. This is a priority issue for the administration, but Americans overall continue to oppose closing Gitmo by a 2-to-1 margin. Conservatives oppose closure by 81% to 9%, and moderates by 53% to 36%. Only liberals support closing the facility, by 60% to 28%.

Another example is the prosecution of U.S. officials who ordered enhanced interrogation techniques against captured terrorists. Most Americans have consistently opposed the idea. In our latest poll 58% oppose prosecution and 32% support the action.

Conservatives oppose prosecution 68% to 23%, and moderates are 57% to 36% against. But liberals favor the action 54% to 38%.

How does Obama compare with his predecessor on national security? A year ago, nearly one-half (49%) of Americans said the policies of the Bush administration made the U.S. safer from terrorism. For the current administration, this measure dropped to 26% in July 2009, 28% in September, 29% in October and 26% this month.

Over the same time, the share of Americans who feel either "very safe" or "somewhat safe" has also declined. Four of five Americans (82%) stated they felt safe a year ago. The same metric declined to 73% in July 2009, to 69% in October and to 67% this month.

In addition to specific actions, symbolic moves, such as replacing the term "war on terror" with "overseas contingency operations" and "act of terror" with "man-caused disaster," might also be contributing to the perception of administration policies as soft.

In sum, the appeal for the administration's policies is limited to liberals who make up just 16% of the electorate. Most Americans identify themselves as conservatives (50%) or moderates (34%).

Last Tuesday's special Senate election in Massachusetts is an example of the popularity of tougher policies. Senator-elect Scott Brown came across as being tougher on terror than his opponent. He also stated he did not believe waterboarding was torture.


Mayur is president of TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, which directs the IBD/TIPP Poll that was the most accurate in the last two presidential elections.

ACT! IMPACT! 2010

by [color:e567=#000]Brigitte Gabriel


Now, more than ever, ACT! for America is poised to make a huge impact on the threat of radical Islam.

Today, with more homegrown jihadists than ever, the panty bomber reminding us that al Qaeda and bin Laden are vowing more attacks, and the foolhardy “mirandizing” of terrorists, America is clearly less safe than it was a year ago.

Americans know it and are looking for answers, action, and leadership.

With your help, ACT! for America can give them the answers they need, the leadership they deserve, and the action our country will thank us for!

That’s why today I’m launching our 30 day “1,010 for 2010” campaign to kick off our BIG PLANS for this year!

This campaign is looking for 1,010 people to either:


By clicking here and choosing either the Patriot Partner option or the Contributing Member option, you will provide us the funds we need for a successful ACT! IMPACT! 2010.

Below are highlights of just three of our projects for 2010 which you can help make happen as the spearhead of ACT! IMPACT! 2010.

2010 Congressional Scorecard

This Congressional Scorecard tells how each Member of Congress voted on key bills and amendments that affect our national security. After publishing our first Congressional Scorecard in 2008 we were flooded with emails of gratitude for this invaluable service. (To see ACT! for America’s 2008 Congressional Scorecard, click here, then scroll down and click on the links on the left).

Just think of the impact we can have this election year when hundreds of thousands of people log on to our website to find out how their elected Members of Congress voted on key bills and amendments!! You can make this happen!!

ACT! for America needs $30,000 to create and maintain this important resource. By clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time contribution, you will help ACT! for America make this a reality.

“Effective Contact” Grassroots web-based lobbying program

Get your voice heard! With one click of a button you can forward a pre-written email or letter to your member of Congress on an issue ACT! for America is pushing for. Send the letter or email as written, or personalize it if you choose! With one click the email or letter will be on its way!

Reach your community! With one click you can get a list of newspapers in your area and send a pre-written letter to the editor. AND…send it to any newspaper in the country!

Get people voting on our issues! You can get people registered to vote simply by clicking on a button on our website.

These are just a few of the services we will be able to provide you, our members, with the “Effective Contact” online program we are looking to purchase. With your support this can happen!

Just think how much more effective and efficient our efforts will be as we work together to win new policy victories in Congress!

ACT! for America’s cost to set up and maintain this program for 2010 is $25,000. By clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time contribution, you will help us make this a reality.

“One-two punch” to Congress: Full-page ad campaign in Roll Call

We want to give Congress a “one-two punch” with 40,000 or more signatures on our CAIR petition combined with a full-page ad campaign in Roll Call. Roll Call is read by virtually everybody who is anybody politically in Washington.

This ad will shine a spotlight on CAIR and its highly questionable record in a way that has never been done before on Capitol Hill.

Our Congressional allies will cheer it and those uninformed in Congress about CAIR will receive some much-needed education!

This hard-hitting campaign will cost up to $15,000. By clicking here and becoming either a monthly contributing Patriot Partner or making a one-time contribution, you will help us make this a reality.

For those of you who have followed my work since 2002, you are seeing how perseverance, tenacity, teamwork and commitment have resulted in ACT! for America becoming the largest national security grassroots movement in America.

I appeal to you today to invest in the security and future of America—and your family. We at ACT! for America must do this together—none of us can do it alone, and we can’t succeed without your financial support.

Together we rise in defense of our security, our liberty and our values!

Always devoted,


Brigitte Gabriel

Ft. Hood Jihadist Massacre Report

"Gutless and Shameful"


How bad is the cancer of political correctness in the Defense Department?

So bad that the 86 page report on the Ft. Hood jihadist massacre mentions "Islam" or any of its derivatives only once—in a footnote.

So bad that CNN commentator Jack Cafferty called it a "joke."

Unfortunately, the only ones laughing are the Islamists.

They must be looking at our military and political leadership and thanking Allah for their good fortune. It's easy to envision discussions among Islamists where they tell each other "surely Allah is with us; the infidel leaders are so blind and stupid they won't even acknowledge who is fighting them!"

Ralph Peters' column below is RIGHT ON POINT!

We believe American outrage at this suicidal level of political correctness is only going to grow. Let us resolve together to make 2010 the year that "main street America" shouted back at Washington that we've had enough!!



Hood Massacre Report Gutless and Shameful

By RALPH PETERS

January 16, 2010


http://www.nypost.com/p/news/opinion/opedcolumnists/
hood_massacre_report_gutless_and_yaUphSPCoMs8ux4lQdtyGM


There are two basic problems with the grotesque non-report on the Islamist- terror massacre at Fort Hood (released by the Defense Department yesterday):

* It's not about what happened at Fort Hood.

* It avoids entirely the issue of why it happened.

Rarely in the course of human events has a report issued by any government agency been so cowardly and delusional. It's so inept, it doesn't even rise to cover-up level.

"Protecting the Force: Lessons From Fort Hood" never mentions Islamist terror. Its 86 mind-numbing pages treat "the alleged perpetrator," Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, as just another workplace shooter (guess they're still looking for the pickup truck with the gun rack).

The report is so politically correct that its authors don't even realize the extent of their political correctness -- they're body-and-soul creatures of the PC culture that murdered 12 soldiers and one Army civilian.

Reading the report, you get the feeling that, jeepers, things actually went pretty darned well down at Fort Hood. Commanders, first responders and everybody but the latest "American Idol" contestants come in for high praise.

The teensy bit of specific criticism is reserved for the "military medical officer supervisors" in Maj. Hasan's chain of command at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center. As if the problem started and ended there.

Unquestionably, the officers who let Hasan slide, despite his well-known wackiness and hatred of America, bear plenty of blame. But this disgraceful pretense of a report never asks why they didn't stop Hasan's career in its tracks.

The answer is straightforward: Hasan's superiors feared -- correctly -- that any attempt to call attention to his radicalism or to prevent his promotion would backfire on them, destroying their careers, not his.

Hasan was a protected-species minority. Under the PC tyranny of today's armed services, no non-minority officer was going to take him on.

This is a military that imposes rules of engagement that protect our enemies and kill our own troops and that court-martials heroic SEALs to appease a terrorist. Ain't many colonels willing to hammer the Army's sole Palestinian-American psychiatrist.

Of course, there's no mention of political correctness by the panel. Instead, the report settles for blinding flashes of the obvious, such as "We believe a gap exists in providing information to the right people." Gee, really? Well, that explains everything. Money well spent!

Or "Department of Defense force protection policies are not optimized for countering internal threats." Of course not: You can't stop an internal threat you refuse to recognize.

The panel's recommendations? Wow. "Develop a risk-assessment tool for commanders." Now that's going to stop Islamist terrorists in their tracks.

The Fort Hood massacre didn't reflect an intelligence failure. The intelligence was there, in gigabytes. This was a leadership failure and an ethical failure, at every level. Nobody wanted to know what Hasan was up to. But you won't learn that from this play-pretend report.

The sole interesting finding flashes by quickly: Behind some timid wording on pages 13 and 14, a daring soul managed to insert the observation that we aren't currently able to keep violence-oriented religious extremists from becoming chaplains. (Of course, they're probably referring to those darned Baptists . . .)

To be fair, there's a separate, classified report on Maj. Hasan himself. But it's too sensitive for the American people to see. Does it even hint he was a self-appointed Islamist terrorist committing jihad? I'll bet it focuses on his "personal problems."

In the end, the report contents itself with pretending that the accountability problem was isolated within the military medical community at Walter Reed. It wasn't, and it isn't. Murderous political correctness is pervasive in our military. The medical staff at Walter Reed is just where the results began to manifest themselves in Hasan's case.

Once again, the higher-ups blame the worker bees who were victims of the policy the higher-ups inflicted on them. This report's spinelessness is itself an indictment of our military's failed moral and ethical leadership.

We agonize over civilian casualties in a war zone but rush to whitewash the slaughter of our own troops on our own soil. Conduct unbecoming.
