The trial and convictions reported in the story below raise a question that America is going to have to grapple with in the next few years: At what point does the constitutional protection of free speech no longer apply to those who speak about carrying out violent jihad?

For instance, is an imam’s call to jihad, echoing throughout an American mosque, constitutionally protected speech?

Lawyers who we have talked to say the question comes down to an assessment of whether or not the call to jihad is incitement to violence that amounts to an “imminent threat.” Yelling “fire” in a crowded theater is an example of speech that creates an imminent threat of injury to the moviegoers, and is thus not protected speech.

At what point does calling for jihad become the equivalent of yelling “fire” in a crowded theater? We in America deeply cherish the right to free speech, but are we at risk of enabling the seeds of our own destruction by erring too far in the protection of speech that calls for jihad against us?

Walid Phares, in his excellent book Future Jihad, argues that “…U.S. and western strategies are a reaction to terror actions.” (p. 197, emphasis in original). His point is that the jihadist ideology is what produces the jihadist actions, that the history of militant Islam demonstrates this, and until we address what he terms the “factory” that produces jihad, we will fall short of success in defeating jihad.

In other words, given the clear pronouncements for jihad against infidels embedded throughout Islam’s holy books, and 1,400 years of Islamic history of violent jihad resulting from the call to jihad in those holy books, it is not unreasonable to conclude a cause and effect relationship between the ideology of jihad and the actions of jihad.

Radical Islam is at heart a supremacist political ideology, and it is not the only such ideology that has ever existed. Nazism immediately comes to mind. Here in America, the Ku Klux Klan built a violent supremacist movement based upon hate and a twisting of the Bible. Each of these ideologies have certain things in common, including treating “non-believers” as second-class citizens and the call to violence against those “non-believers.”

So let us close with two questions. Would 21st century America celebrate the “rights” of a Grand Wizard of the KKK publicly calling for the lynching of African-Americans? By the same token, then, should America celebrate the “rights” of Islamists in America who publicly call for jihad against infidels in America?

5 Miami men convicted of Sears Tower attack plot
By CURT ANDERSON | AP Legal Affairs Writer
4:24 PM CDT, May 12, 2009
http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-ap-us-terrorisminvestig,0,7616324.story

MIAMI - It took three trials, three juries and nearly three years, but federal prosecutors finally succeeded Tuesday in convicting five Miami men of plotting to start an anti-government insurrection by destroying Chicago's Sears Tower and bombing FBI offices. One man was acquitted.

When the FBI swarmed the downtrodden Liberty City neighborhood to make the arrests in June 2006, the administration of President George W. Bush hailed the case as a prime example of the Justice Department's post-Sept. 11 policy of disrupting potential terror plots in the earliest possible stages.

Yet hours of FBI recordings of terrorist talk contrasted with little concrete evidence of an evolving plot, triggering two mistrials because juries could not agree on verdicts against ringleader Narseal Batiste or five followers. One of the original seven defendants was acquitted after the first trial.

"Any cases that involve someone's mental intent, their intention when they made certain statements, are always difficult," said Matthew Orwig, former U.S. attorney in Texas who has monitored the Miami case. "It was a must-win for the government. They needed some vindication."

Finally, this third jury found the way on its sixth day of deliberations.

It wasn't the only victory Tuesday for terrorism prosecutors. In a separate case in New York, a jury convicted a Lebanese-born Swede of trying to set up a terror training camp in Oregon in 1999. The verdict against Oussama Kassir capped a three-week trial.

In the Miami case, Batiste, 35, was the only one convicted of all four terrorism-related conspiracy counts, including plotting to provide material support to terrorists and conspiring to wage war against the U.S. Batiste, who was on the vast majority of FBI recordings, faces up to 70 years in prison.

Batiste's right-hand man, 29-year-old Patrick Abraham, was convicted on three counts and faces 50 years behind bars. Convicted on two counts and facing 30 years are 24-year-old Burson Augustin, 25-year-old Rotschild Augustine and 33-year-old Stanley Grant Phanor. Naudimar Herrera, 25, was cleared of all four charges.

U.S. District Judge Joan Lenard set sentencing for July 27 for the five convicted men, most of whom are Haitian or have Haitian ancestry.

Herrera criticized the prosecution as "bogus" and insisted the men banded together not for terrorism but to explore ways to lift up the impoverished, drug-infested area.

"It's not right," Herrera said outside the courthouse. "We were really all about helping the community."

The jury endured a two-month trial, then had to restart deliberations last week after one juror was excused for illness and a second was booted off the panel for being uncooperative. After the verdicts were read, court security officials escorted the jury -- whose names were kept secret -- out of the building before they could be interviewed.

"This was a difficult trial, and we thank all the prosecutors and agents involved, whose efforts resulted in today's successful conclusion," said Miami U.S. Attorney R. Alexander Acosta, a holdover Bush appointee.

Prosecutors Richard Gregorie and Jacqueline Arango focused on the group's intent as captured on dozens of FBI audio and video recordings. Batiste is repeatedly heard espousing violence against the U.S. government and saying the men should start a "full ground war" that would "kill all the devils."

"I want to fight some jihad," Batiste says on one tape.

A key piece of evidence is an FBI video of the entire group pledging an oath of allegiance, or "bayat," to al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden in a March 16, 2006, ceremony led by an Arabic-speaking FBI informant posing as "Brother Mohammed" from al-Qaida. Testimony also showed the men took photographs and video of possible targets in Miami, including the FBI building, a courthouse complex and a synagogue.

But Batiste, who testified in all three trials, insisted he was only going along with Mohammed so he could obtain $50,000 or more for his struggling construction business and a nascent community outreach program. Batiste was leader of a Miami chapter of a sect known as the Moorish Science Temple, which combines elements of Christianity, Judaism and Islam and does not recognize the U.S. government's full authority.

Defense lawyers also claimed the case was an FBI setup driven by informants who manipulated the group.

"This is a manufactured crime," Batiste attorney Ana M. Jhones said earlier in the trial.

A seventh man who was acquitted after the first 2007 trial, 34-year-old Lyglenson Lemorin, is being deported to his native Haiti anyway. Less stringent Immigration laws make it easier for U.S. officials to use the terrorism allegations against Lemorin.

Obama''s Signal to Israel: Submit

Post  Admin on Wed 13 May 2009, 12:46 pm

Obama's signal to Israel: Submit

Every President’s administration sends signals about its foreign policy intentions by the people the President selects and the various statements they make.

The Obama administration’s intentions are becoming clearer and clearer to discern. The message to the world: America has been arrogant. The message to Muslims: America has been arrogant. The message to Israel: See below.

There is a difference between acknowledging mistakes and communicating weakness. The Obama administration is, unfortunately, repeatedly communicating weakness to those who mean us harm. One could understand pursuing such a policy if there were historical precedent for it actually working. If the goal of the Obama administration is to secure lasting peace in the Middle East that includes safety and security for Israel, and if its goal is to secure peaceful co-existence with radical Islamists, the paths he is following will fail.

Not because any of us wishes they would fail, but because, as George Santayana wrote, “He who does not know history is condemned to repeat it.” We’re reasonably sure most Brits wanted Neville Chamberlain to succeed when he declared after his meeting with Hitler that he had secured “peace in our time.” Why did he fail? Because he refused to acknowledge the reality of the evil he was dealing with and deluded himself into believing such evil could be appeased with accommodations and concessions.

Obama's Signal to Israel: Submit

By Mona Charen

May 12, 2009 / 18 Iyar 5769
http://www.jewishworldreview.com/cols/charen051209.php3

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | In early April, Vice President Biden was asked if the administration was concerned that Israel might strike at Iran's nuclear facilities. "I don't believe Prime Minister Netanyahu would do that," Mr. Biden replied. "I think he would be ill advised to do that."

A few weeks later, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explained the administration's solution to the threat of an Iranian bomb: "For Israel to get the kind of strong support it's looking for vis-a-vis Iran, it can't stay on the sideline with respect to the Palestinians and the peace efforts … they go hand in hand."

And on May 10, National Security Adviser James Jones spelled it out further: "We understand Israel's preoccupation with Iran as an existential threat. We agree with that. … By the same token, there are a lot of things that you can do to diminish that existential threat by working hard towards achieving a two-state solution."

By what reasoning has the administration decided that pushing Israel to permit a new Palestinian state would — in any way — diminish the threat from Iran? Do they believe that Iran's (or I should say the Iranian leadership's) genocidal hostility toward Israel is the result of lack of progress toward an independent Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza? Will the Iranian leadership, which has characterized Israel as a "cancerous tumor," declared that "Israel must we wiped off the map," and promised that "Israel is destined for destruction and will soon disappear" is going to change its mind if Israel enters into negotiations with the Palestinians?

"Obama will be a great friend to Israel." So said a Jewish Democrat in a pre-election debate with me. I asked her whether she had any hesitations about someone who had been steeped in academic pieties and Hyde Park leftwing intellectual fashions, and who had tamely absorbed the Rev. Wright's sermons for 20 years? Her response was to mouth some of the platitudes about support for Israel that were to be found on the Obama campaign's website. I wonder if she is having doubts now.

Does it give her pause that Rose Gottemoeller, assistant secretary of state and America's chief nuclear arms negotiator, has called on Israel (along with Pakistan, India, and North Korea) to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty? By including Israel on a list of nations known to either have nuclear weapons or be close to acquiring them, the Obama administration is introducing a sinister note of moral equivalence to the problem of nuclear weapons in the Middle East. All previous U.S. governments have implicitly accepted that Israel's nuclear weapons pose a threat to no nation and are maintained only to deter Israel's enemies from genocidal attacks.

Like other liberals, my debate opponent probably believes that Obama's apology tour of global capitals was pitch perfect. Of course, it's one thing for the United States, still the world's superpower, to delude itself that winning international popularity contests will make us safer (though it's a dangerous delusion), but Israel, which always sits inches from the precipice of destruction, cannot afford such fantasies at all.

We have recent history to guide us. In 2000, Israel withdrew from the security corridor it had established in southern Lebanon. The world had long been clamoring for Israel to do this. The Iranian-sponsored Hezbollah movement immediately seized the area — trumpeting its triumph in driving out the enemy. In 2006, southern Lebanon became the launching pad for Hezbollah's missile campaign against northern Israel.

Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005. The Iranian-backed Hamas movement moved quickly and took control there (not without significant internecine bloodshed with Fatah), and again used the territory not to build a peaceful Palestinian enclave but to launch 10,000 missiles against southern Israel.

Fatah (which is called moderate because it wants to destroy Israel on the installment plan rather than all at once) retains tenuous control of the West Bank. But even Mahmoud Abbas admits that if Israel were to withdraw completely from the area, Hamas would gain control in a heartbeat.

Next week, Prime Minister Netanyahu will meet with President Obama in Washington. It is hard to see how this relationship can go well. President Obama has sent abundant signals that his foreign policy is 50 percent wishful thinking and 50 percent leftwing mush. There may not be any easy answers to the problem of a nuclear Iran. But pressuring Israel to take suicidal risks is clearly the worst possible approach. Iran will conclude, as its proxies Hezbollah and Hamas at various times concluded, that force and the threat of force work.


If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. … We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant. –Sir Karl Popper

They KNOW We Are Vulnerable
Combating the EMP Threat, Part Three

by Brigitte Gabriel

Dear Elaine,
“In 1962, deep in a cold war with the Soviet Union, the United States conducted 'Starfish Prime,’ a nuclear weapon test over a remote region of the Pacific Ocean. The test was successful, with one unexpected result: Fifteen hundred kilometers away in Hawaii streetlights burned out, TV sets and radios failed and power lines fused.” (EMPACT publication, “Global Single Point Failure: The EMP Threat).
The fact that we are vulnerable to a nuclear-triggered EMP threat is not some fabricated scare tactic or sci-fi fantasy. And countries including Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China know it.

In 1999 a Russian official warned a delegation from the U.S. House Armed Services Committee that if his country really wanted to hurt the U.S., it would “detonate a single nuclear warhead at high-altitude over the United States. The resulting electromagnetic pulse would massively disrupt U.S. communications and computer systems, shutting down everything.” (EMPACT publication, p. 2).

According to Senate testimony in 2005, an Iranian military journal discussed the impact of an EMP attack and stated, “If the world’s industrial countries fail to devise effective ways to defend themselves against dangerous electronic assaults then they will disintegrate within a few years.” (EMPACT publication, p. 3).

The Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack has warned us. Iran has warned us. Russia has warned us.

Now America must act. We have time to prepare and defend against such an attack, but the window to prepare is closing. North Korea is testing launch missiles that could reach Alaska. Iran is working with North Korea on its nuclear weapons program. If 70% or more of our electrical power grid were wiped out by an EMP attack, as the Commission concludes, millions and millions of Americans would die.

There is no organization in America that has more members that are informed on issues like these than ACT! for America. While most Americans are unaware of the various threats of radical Islam — you are. While most Americans are unaware of the EMP threat — you are.

That makes you and me 21st century “Paul Revere’s.” If we don’t warn and awaken America, who will? For the sake of our families, our friends, our children and our grandchildren, we must act now.

This is why I’m appealing to you today to help us launch our 2009 plan to combat the EMP threat. As you will see in a moment, some of the pieces of this plan we can implement with the staff and resources we have. But other pieces require funds we simply don’t have in the budget.

If you agree with me that preventing radical Islamists or a country like North Korea from deploying an EMP threat against us is an action we must take – and take now – then I’m asking you to do the following.
If you’re not already a monthly contributing Patriot Partner, click here to sign up. For monthly gifts of $10 to $100 we have special benefits for you. You simply select the level of monthly gift you can make, and we’ll send you the benefit(s) for that Patriot Partner gift level. Our online donation form is easy to use, safe and secure.
OR
Click here to make a one-time gift through our “Contributing Member” program. Select the gift amount you are able to make and we’ll send you the benefit(s) for that level of gift. If you prefer to mail a check rather than use our online donation form, you can click here to print out a form to fill out and mail in with your contribution.
Your financial support today will help us quickly move ahead on our plan to combat the EMP threat. Here’s what we plan to do.
A paid advertising campaign in the top publications in Washington, D.C. These influential publications are read by members of Congress, staff, the administration, and other opinion leaders throughout Washington.


A national petition to Congress. Unlike other petitions we have launched, we want to advertise on high-traffic internet outlets such as Pajamas Media and World Net Daily. This advertising, coupled with my highlighting the petition on radio and TV interviews I conduct, will ensure that hundreds of thousands of people see it and have the opportunity to sign it.


Lobby for a restoration of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack and implementation of the Commission’s recommendations.


Push for the funding necessary to increase the deployment of missile defense technology later this year during the appropriations process in Congress.


Participate in the national EMP threat conference scheduled for September 9 and 10 in Niagara, New York.


After the national EMP threat conference, work with congressional allies to draft and push for legislation that will provide protection and replacement of critical electrical transformers nationwide as a second line of defense.
I was told recently that a member of Congress, who is chairman of a House subcommittee that would have jurisdiction over an issue like the EMP threat, wasn’t even aware of it. With Iran likely to have nuclear weapons within two years, we must begin educating people about this threat NOW!

Can I count on you to join me as a 21st century “Paul Revere”?

When you sign up to become a Patriot Partner or make a one-time gift as a Contributing Member, you will see different levels of support. For each level of support we will send you a gift or gifts as our way of saying “thank you.” (If you prefer to become a Contributing Member by mailing in your contribution, please click here to print out a reply form).

Depending on the level of gift you choose, you could receive an autographed copy of my best-selling book They Must Be Stopped, or a copy of the chilling documentary film “Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around U.S.,” or a DVD copy of my message “The Threat of Militant Islam.” There are other gifts as well.

As you help us launch our plan to combat the EMP threat, we will provide you with a gift or gifts that include valuable resources for you to become more informed and to educate your family and friends. This is how we will continue to work together to push back against the threat of radical Islam.

I’ve heard people say that an EMP attack might never happen. I’ve heard some say Iran will attack Israel, but not us. They may be right. But what if they’re wrong and we haven’t prepared? There are too many experts, who have studied this and concluded it’s a very real threat, for us to ignore.

So please ACT today! Sign up to become a Patriot Partner or make a one-time contribution, and we’ll get your gifts out to you within two to three weeks. (If you prefer to become a Contributing Member by mailing in your contribution, please click here to print out a reply form).

The first step in ultimately preventing an EMP attack is for each of us to take action today — to fulfill our role as 21st century Paul Revere’s. Thank you for everything you do on behalf of the America we love. I am grateful beyond words. And even though many of your friends and family don’t know it yet, there will come a time when they will be grateful to you as well.

Always devoted,



Brigitte Gabriel

Victory in Florida!!

The Florida House of Representatives passes
a “Free Speech Protection” bill

by Guy Rodgers, Executive Director

Dear Elaine,

On Saturday, while our staff was conducting training sessions at the “Citizens in Action” conference in Northern Virginia, I received an email from Adam Hasner, the Florida House Majority Leader, informing us that Florida’s version of “Rachel’s Law” had just passed. In a conference call a week earlier Rep. Hasner pointed out that ACT! for America chapter leaders and members in Florida played an active part in reaching out to legislators in the Florida House on this legislation.

As Rep. Hasner noted so eloquently: “This bill protects Floridians from having their right to free speech suppressed by those with radical ideologies. Foreign courts that do not place the same value on our constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech will no longer be used to intimidate Florida citizens.”

You may recall that “Rachel’s Law” was originally passed in New York about a year ago. It protects authors and publishers from intimidation lawsuits filed in foreign countries, and was dubbed “Rachel’s Law” because of a lawsuit filed against Rachel Ehrenfeld who wrote the book Funding Evil. A version of the legislation, entitled “The Free Speech Protection Act,” has been introduced in the U.S. Congress. We will be sending you an action alert on this legislation in the near future, so stay tuned!

I hope you are seeing the pattern we are seeing. Eighteen months ago there was very little good news we could report to you. That is no longer the case. We and our allies are going on the offensive and we’re winning victories. I fully expect that, over the next twelve months, we’ll see more victories like these. More and more people are waking up – and more and more elected officials are waking up. Yes, we have a long ways to go and a long fight ahead, but there is a message being sent loud and clear to radical Islamists, and that message is that America is a sleeping giant that is beginning to stir from its slumber, and that Americans are not going to roll over and allow Islamism to steamroller us as it has done in Europe.

In this vein, we have a simple action we would like you to take to help us improve our ability to educate and persuade elected officials throughout the country. Lisa Piraneo, our new Director of Government Relations, wants to build a database of every one of our members who has a relationship with at least one elected official, at any level.

Compiling this database will enable us to more effectively and strategically advance our legislative priorities and stop legislation that is harmful – whether at the city, county, state or federal level.

So please read over the following ACTION ALERT and help us once again help you!



Guy Rodgers

____________________________________________________________________


CALLING ALL ACT! FOR AMERICA MEMBERS!

DO YOU HAVE AN EXISTING RELATIONSHIP WITH A LOCAL, STATE, OR FEDERAL ELECTED OFFICIAL?

IF SO, WE NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!

As we recently informed you, Lisa Piraneo has joined ACT! for America as its Director of Government Relations in Washington, DC. As such, Lisa will be our primary eyes and ears on Capitol Hill, but the real power behind ACT! for America is each one of you – our grassroots members! Your connections and relationships with your elected officials – local, state or federal – are critical to the mission of our organization. Specifically, personal relationships with these officials will augment our overall grassroots efforts.

Over the coming weeks, we will be updating our website to include important information about effective grassroots lobbying. Grassroots training will also be offered at each of our upcoming “Citizens in Action” Conferences. You don’t want to miss it!

As part of our efforts to strengthen our voice on the issue of radical Islam, we are working to compile a database of our members who have existing relationships with elected officials. This database will help us as we continue to educate those in all levels of government about the critical issues surrounding the infiltration of Islamic radicalism in our communities.

Our elected officials depend upon others to educate them on the myriad of issues they must address every day. They and their staff cannot be experts on all issues. They want to hear from you. They NEED to hear from you! The ACT! for America grassroots network is the best method for providing this education on radical Islam and what immediate actions must be taken to secure our country for ourselves, our children, and our children’ children. The ACT! for America team will be there to assist you as you provide information to your elected officials.

If you have an existing relationship with ANY elected official from school board member to United States Senator, we want to hear from you.

Please copy the form (below) into a Word document, complete the form, and return it, via e-mail, to info@actforamerica.org. (If you have a relationship with more than three elected officials, simply copy the form more than once before you fill it in).

Your name: ________________________________________________________

Phone number: _________________________________________________

APRIL CHAPTER LEADER OF THE MONTH

Dear Elaine,

It is my pleasure to announce the launch of a new ACT! for America feature entitled “Chapter Leader of the Month” that highlights the activities of our various chapters operating from all over the U.S. and the world! We regularly receive updates from our hard working chapter leaders and will be sharing with you “the inside scoop” on their many successes.

You may not be aware of what our 270 chapters accomplish or how essential strong chapters are to our success in confronting radical Islam. Did you realize we have nearly 3 times the number of chapters we had a year ago? That’s how fast our ACT! for America chapter network is exploding with growth!

We grow large by growing small. It is the fundamental integrity and strength of each committed chapter leader (plus his or her dedicated volunteers) that will collectively empower ACT! for America’s ability to roll back the threat of radical Islam and secure your children’s security for decades to come.

It’s my hope that many of you will realize that our dedicated chapter leaders are really not “Wonder Woman” or “Superman.” They are people just like you and I who are concerned about our nation’s future security. From what I’ve heard from our chapter leaders, many had self doubts about their ability to lead – but they also tell me that as they follow this process we’ve carefully designed for chapter development, their confidence in their ability to lead a vibrant chapter grows with every
passing month!

I’d like to quote from the chapter leader we’re profiling this month who shared the following with me:
“When we first formed the chapter, I told the members that I've never been involved in activist activities before and really didn't know what the hell I was doing, but intended to learn as I went along, try not to make too many mistakes, learn from those I do make, and be responsive to their wishes. I've received much support from the chapter members and I sense that they're not too upset with me as their leader. I've also clearly stated that if they would prefer a different leader, I would gladly relinquish the post and would not feel insulted. I said I felt someone should step forward and get a chapter started, ergo my involvement.”
This is exactly the kind of humility and leadership we are looking for! I get so fired up when I think about the effort and sacrifice our chapter leaders are making!

Therefore, it is my pleasure to announce that our April 2009 Chapter Leader of the Month Award is in fact, a Co-Chapter Leaders of the Month team:

Bruce and Jennifer, co-chapter leaders of our Mission Viejo Chapter in Orange County, California!

Jennifer and Bruce are both highly dedicated volunteers who have helped create a phenomenal chapter! They have truly found the balance between addressing local concerns and helping with our nationwide efforts as well. They have concentrated their first priority on growing the number of members in their chapter. Therefore, they will be in the position to be taking on larger and larger projects in a meaningful way as they grow.

Jennifer is overseeing our California Elected Official Research Project and is coordinating the volunteers helping her gather this vital information.

Bruce (who I quoted above), started the chapter and has been a genuine example of leadership to the entire ACT! for America organization.

Here is just a sampling of the Mission Viejo Chapter’s activities and accomplishments because space simply doesn’t allow a full report:
They have over 45 active participants in their monthly meetings!


They have close to 120 members on their email list.


Perhaps the best and most visible project they’ve completed is the 22-page report entitled “Islam in America’s Classrooms – History or Propaganda?” Special hat tip to Al and Steve for producing this project!! As a consequence of this report, there is a real possibility that a nationwide textbook clearinghouse system will be implemented if the funding can be secured.


They have another active committee to monitor the Muslim Student Union at UC Irvine. Great news: The MSU recently lost its charter as an officially sanctioned student group!


They consistently respond to ACT! for America’s national action alerts. These alerts are consistently giving us larger and larger victories from our local communities to the U.S. Congress!
Check out Mission Viejo’s website, http://www.actforamerica92691.org It is just amazing! Bruce, Jennifer and their dedicated team of volunteers are exactly what we had in mind when we instituted the chapter concept.

In short, Jennifer and Bruce’s consistent efforts can serve as an example that when we all do a little, together we accomplish a lot!

I look forward to announcing next month’s award! I can tell you the competition is stiff. There are so many deserving of mention. Stay tuned…..!

Consider starting or helping a chapter today. Realize that besides a small monthly Patriot Partner pledge of at least $20 to ACT! for America, this is the single most important thing you can do to stop radical Islam cold. Tens of thousands of people, all accomplishing the same objectives, will get this job done! Don’t risk sitting this out! You are needed!

North Korea, Islamism, and the
Axis of Nuclear Proliferation

by Brigitte Gabriel
www.actforamerica.org
While President Obama recently made a commendable effort to “connect” with the Islamic world, especially during his visit to Turkey, he went perilously too far by saying things that simply are not accurate and thus should not have been said.

For example: Obama said: "We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better..."

I can understand why Obama would not want to say, “1,400 years of Islam has resulted in 270 million deaths and countless millions enslaved.” But such a history hardly qualifies as “shaping the world for the better,” and he would have been advised to simply not make such a historically unsupportable statement.

Obama also said that he wants to “strengthen Ataturk's vision of democratic Turkey.” What Mr. Obama needs to thus say to the Muslim world is remind them what Ataturk’s vision was – a vision which ended the Islamic Empire in 1924, rebelled against Islam and its Sharia law, and gave women rights to vote, to get an education, to work, etc. It was Ataturk's vision that put the last nail in the coffin of the Islamic empire, ending centuries of murder and terrorism. It was because of Ataturk's action that the Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt five years later, to reclaim and revive the Islamic Empire and setting the course for present-day Islamism. The Muslim Brotherhood is now the oldest and largest terrorist organization in the world, boasting 70 offshoots including Al-Qaida.

While Obama eloquently stated that America is not at war with Islam, which was necessary to speak with such clarity, it was important to continue by saying: "However, we are all challenged today by Islamist radicalism that has declared war, not only on America but also on moderate, peace-loving Muslims. Islamism, or the ideology of political Islam, threatens the entire world, including the millions of Muslims who don’t adhere to it, and it is growing in strength with every passing day.” Attempting to disconnect terror and radicalism from the political ideology that underlies it is precisely what Western Europe and Great Britain have tried, without success.

Obama missed a great opportunity to challenge the moderate Muslim world to stand up with us against the Islamists who wish to destroy not only our way of life but change the political landscape in their own countries through overthrow of their leadership and their governments.

Such an outreach by Obama would have created solidarity between moderate Muslims and America, because moderate Muslims are more likely to hear and respect what Obama says due to his Islamic heritage. This was Obama’s opportunity to make a statement that could have set the stage for real and historic change, but sadly, he missed it.

Meanwhile, North Korea conducts another missile launch, which has enormous ramifications for the world’s ability to defeat Islamism. North Korea is doing more than manufacture nuclear weapons for itself. North Korea's business is selling arms technology to the cash-rich Arab nations who provide it with the cash it so desperately needs.

A few years ago North Korea supplied Syria with the nuclear reactor that Israel bombed in September 2007. North Korean engineers were killed and many injured at the Syrian facility during the Israeli bombing.

On another Islamist front Iran is clearly set on attacking Israel and America. Iran is very interested in buying the North Korean missile technology which they can then deliver an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack against America. So while North Korea may not attack us directly, its technology is what our die-hard enemies are going to use to destroy us.

The United Nations has proven to be virtually impotent in dealing with such serious issues. Saddam Hussein ignored UN sanctions, North Korea ignores the UN, and Iran marches on, ignoring UN sanctions. The United States needs to take a bold step to disrupt the “nuclear proliferation axis” that exists between North Korea and the militant nations of the Islamic world.

We can and should go directly to China and ask them how would they feel if we made nuclear and missile technology available to Japan and Taiwan? We can exert great pressure on China in this area because those two nations are a major threat to China if we make our technology available to them.

This will give China a vested interest in pressuring North Korea to stop their missile program. What we are concerned about right now is the political victory that North Korea has achieved with this launch. Even though this was not a military victory because the launch was not successful to the point they expected, it achieved a political victory against America.

This message is not being wasted on Iran and other nations, like Syria and Libya for example, who are trying to stand up to the United States. America is establishing a clear track record of “no-response.” In 2006 Kaddafi, who signed an agreement in 2003 to get rid of his 30 tons of mustard gas, reneged on the contract and changed his mind after watching America's lack of decisive action against Iran.

North Korea is so dangerous because its missiles could carry a nuclear warhead to America or it could continue to provide the technology to other nations wanting to harm America. In other words, the nuclear threat to America and the West will continue to escalate beyond North Korea to Islamist regimes unless we bring it to a screeching halt.

The clock is ticking ever closer to midnight.

Is Great Britain Beginning to “See the Light?”

Dear Elaine,

While the Obama administration takes actions and makes overtures to the Islamic world that appear disturbingly similar to what the political and academic leadership in Great Britain has been doing for decades, news coming out of Britain indicates that there is a growing movement inside the government to chart a new course.

As the Islamist Watch commentary below notes, “there is growing realization that the UK’s old strategy…has been a disaster.”

ACT! for America has been saying this since our founding in 2007, so we are delighted that the failure of the British policy is now being more broadly recognized and that this realization may well be leading to a significant shift in British policy. We should all be very encouraged by this turn of events.

The two questions we have for those in Washington, who are arguing for a course of action similar to the failed one Britain has pursued for some thirty years, are these: Why do you want to lead us down the same failed path? And why do you think the outcome here will be any different than it has been in Great Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, etc.?

What our political leaders are going to find is that patriotic Americans, who cherish the freedoms guaranteed to us under the Constitution, are not going to simply roll over and acquiesce to this failed course of action – no matter how politically correct it appears.

Glimmers of Hope in Great Britain

by David J. Rusin
Fri, 3 Apr 2009 at 12:17 PM
http://www.islamist-watch.org/blog/2009/04/glimmers-of-hope-in-great-britain.html

Because the Islamist project has reached a far more advanced stage in Europe, events there often serve as warnings to America about how not to deal with the challenges that lie ahead. Thus it is quite refreshing to be able to highlight a few positive developments in Britain that the United States should consider emulating.

First, there is growing realization that the UK's old strategy of empowering nonviolent Islamists, assumed to "possess the necessary 'street cred'" to marginalize violent Islamists, has been a disaster. A report by Policy Exchange argues that the government is "underwriting the very Islamist ideology which spawns an illiberal, intolerant, and anti-Western worldview":

"Not only is it failing to achieve its stated objectives; in many places it is actually making the situation worse," they said. "A new generation is being radicalized, sometimes with the very funds that are supposed to be countering radicalization." The problem has been caused by the link between violent and nonviolent extremism being "habitually underplayed in official documents produced by central government, local government, and the police."

Second, Britain has launched a new strategy that recognizes the importance of opposing nonviolent Islamism. Among the updated criteria for defining Islamic extremists:
They advocate a caliphate, a pan-Islamic state encompassing many countries.
They promote Shari'a law.
They believe in jihad, or armed resistance, anywhere in the world.
Third, the government has suspended ties with the Muslim Council of Britain — think CAIR with a cockney accent — after one of its senior officials signed a document interpreted as "advocating attacks on the Royal Navy if it tries to stop arms for Hamas being smuggled into Gaza." The government has reinforced the break by pledging to focus its efforts on mosques and smaller groups. Sadiq Khan, the minister for community cohesion, said, "The days of lazy politicians just speaking to one or two powerful community groups or leaders are gone."

America could learn from these changes of direction. While the FBI has cut off CAIR, other Islamist bodies are still welcome in Washington. Moreover, there has been little discernable movement to reach out to smaller organizations representing mainstream Muslims.

Advice for the feds: Contact a few of those Muslims who disowned CAIR publicly this week. They will be some of your best allies in protecting America against the threat of radical Islam, while helping our nation avoid the mistakes that Britain now must correct the hard way.

It’s been brewing for some time. Muslim countries have been pressing for a United Nations Human Rights Council resolution calling on nations around the world to pass laws criminalizing the alleged “defamation” of religion – specifically Islam.

This week the Council passed the resolution.

The good news is that Western nations and over 100 faith groups opposed this resolution. The bad news is that efforts by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) have paid off in getting such a resolution passed – and we can count on the OIC to continue its global campaign to criminalize free speech that allegedly “defames” Islam.

This is not the only tactic the OIC is pursuing in this regard. At last year’s OIC conference, the conference supported efforts to look for legal strategies to fight back against the alleged “defamation” of Islam. Translation: lawsuits around the world funded by petrodollars.

UN body OKs call to curb religious criticism

By FRANK JORDANS – 1 day ago

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5iRHXSIoJJdXQpG3kPrRO2LWMnWTAD975SKN01

GENEVA (AP) — The U.N.'s top human-rights body approved a proposal backed by Muslims nations Thursday urging the passage of laws around the world protecting religion from criticism.

The proposal by Pakistan had drawn strong criticism from free-speech campaigners and liberal democracies.

A simple majority of 23 members of the 47-nation Human Rights Council voted in favor of the resolution. Eleven mostly Western nations opposed it and 13 countries abstained.

The resolution urges states to provide "protection against acts of hatred, discrimination, intimidation and coercion resulting from defamation of religions and incitement to religious hatred in general."

"It is individuals who have rights and not religions," said Canadian diplomat Terry Cormier. Canada's criticism was echoed by European Union countries, all of which voted against the proposal.

The council is dominated by Muslim and African countries. Muslim nations have argued that religions, in particular Islam, must be shielded from criticism in the media and other areas of public life. They cited cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad as an example of unacceptable free speech.

"Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism," the resolution said.

A coalition of more than 100 secular and faith groups had called on governments to oppose the resolution, warning that it could lead to accusations of defamation among different faiths.

The United States did not vote on the resolution because it is not a member of the council. The Bush administration announced it was virtually giving up on the body and would participate in debates only if absolutely necessary because of the council's anti-Israel statements and its failure to act on abuses in Sudan and elsewhere.

India, which normally votes along with the council's majority of developing nations, abstained in protest at the fact that Islam was the only religion specifically named as deserving protection.

India's Ambassador Gopinathan Achamkulangare said the resolution "inappropriately" linked religious criticism to racism.

Another Big Step Forward for ACT! for America

by Brigitte Gabriel

Tomorrow marks another exciting milestone in the growth, influence and effectiveness of ACT! for America. I’m delighted to announce that tomorrow, ACT! for America’s full-time lobbyist, Lisa Piraneo, begins work on Capitol Hill !!
Lisa’s official title is “Director of Government Relations.” Lisa has over 15 years of experience on Capitol Hill, including stints in four congressional offices and nearly seven years of experience as a lobbyist for a national organization. She has also worked for a Homeland Security consulting firm.

In her capacity as Director of Government Relations, Lisa will work with members of Congress and their staffs, educating them on issues we’re concerned about and seeking their support for bills we consider important. We already have a handful of bills Lisa will be working on, and we’ll give you information and updates on those at a later time.

She will also be working with our chapter leaders and members on such tasks as providing education on how to effectively persuade our elected representatives as well as coordinating grassroots contacts with members of Congress.

As events of the past several weeks demonstrate, our achieving a full-time presence on Capitol Hill hasn’t come a moment too soon.

Yesterday we reported to you that the UN Human Rights Council passed a resolution that calls on nations around the world to criminalize the “defamation” of Islam. The Fox News article below highlights the growing concern in America about the encroachment of Islamic shariah law.

Putting an experienced, qualified lobbyist to work on our behalf on Capitol Hill was our top priority for 2009. Hundreds of you responded to our request for financial support to make this a reality, and thanks to your help, it is a reality!

I dreamed of this day seven years ago when I launched American Congress for Truth, ACT! for America’s “sister” organization. I dreamed of the day that we would have tens of thousands of members, hundreds of chapters, and a full-time lobbyist in D.C.

That day has arrived.

Lisa will be one of our featured speakers at most of our “Citizens in Action” conferences this year. If you haven’t yet registered to attend or participate via live webcast, please log on to www.actforamerica.org and register today.

Words simply can’t express my gratitude for each and every one of you. We have a big task ahead of us, but together we will succeed, because as each of us does a little, together we’ll accomplish a lot.

Always devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel

Islamic Law's Influence in America a Growing Concern

Sunday , March 29, 2009

By David Lewkowict



As America's Muslim population grows, so too does the influence of Islamic law, or Shariah, in daily life in the U.S.

"Shariah Law is the totality of the Muslim's obligation," said Abdullahi An-Na'im, a professor of law at Emory University in Atlanta. According to An-Na'im, Shariah is similar to Jewish Talmudic Law or Catholic Canon Law in that it guides an adherent's moral conduct.

"As a citizen, I am a subject of the United States," An-Na'im said. "I owe allegiance to the United States, to the Constitution of the United States. That is not inconsistent with observing a religious code in terms of my own personal behavior."

While many view this as a testament to the "great American melting pot," others see Islamic law's growing influence as a threat. Shariah's critics point to cases such as the airport in Minneapolis, where some Shariah-adherent taxi drivers made headlines in 2006 for refusing to pick up passengers they suspected of carrying liquor. The drivers' aversion to alcohol stemmed from a verse in the Qur'an that describes "intoxicants and gambling" as "an abomination of Satan's handiwork."

Last year, a Tyson Foods plant in Shelbyville, Tenn. replaced its traditional Labor Day holiday with paid time off on Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim festival — marking the end of fasting during Ramadan. A labor union had requested the change on behalf of hundreds of Muslim employees— many of them were immigrants from Somalia.

But public outcry over the decision to dismiss Labor Day quickly prompted the company and union to negotiate a new contract that makes accommodations for both holidays.

In 2007, the University of Michigan installed ritual foot baths to accommodate Islamic tradition. "These things are beginning to percolate up as Shariah-adherent Muslims insist that their preferences and practices be accommodated by the rest of the population," said Frank Gaffney, founder and president of the Center for Security Policy — a Washington think tank.

Gaffney predicted the U.S. could soon face problems similar to some Western European countries, where the religious values of Muslim immigrants sometimes clash with their highly secular host cultures.

But Professor An-Na'im believes it will be different in America. "The variety of American secularism — which is much more receptive of public displays of religion and a public role for religion — is, in fact, more conducive for Muslims to be citizens and to be comfortable with their religious values and citizenship than European countries," An-Na'im said.

CAIR and Cultural Jihad

Post  Admin on Fri 27 Mar 2009, 10:20 am

CAIR and Cultural Jihad

Andrew McCarthy’s excellent commentary below on CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) echoes a point we have been making since the founding of ACT! for America: That as horrific as terrorism is, to focus on that Islamist threat to the exclusion of “cultural” or “stealth” jihad is a monumental mistake.

Too many in our government have not connected, or do not want to connect, the dots between the supremacist ideology of political Islam and the jihadist actions perpetrated against the West in the arenas of government, academia, law, and the media.

This is why the “War on Terror” essentially misstates the “war,” because terror is a means, not an end, in the bigger arsenal of the Islamists. The “end” is the overthrow of Western civilization and the imposition of Islamic shariah law worldwide. And the arsenal to achieve that end includes many other “means,” such as efforts to criminalize public critique of Islam.

One of the topic sessions in our “Citizens in Action” conference is titled “Why the ‘Typical’ Western Approach for Dealing with Radical Islam Will Not Work – and What Does.” We in the West must understand the mindset and worldview of those who wish to destroy our way of life, if we are to devise effective strategies and tactics to combat them.

If you haven’t yet done so, please log on to www.actforamerica.org today and register to attend one of our “Citizens in Action” conferences.

CAIR’s Well-Deserved Expulsion
Terrorism is only one expression of jihad — there are others as dangerous.

A week ago, the FBI officially announced that it has cut ties with the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The self-styled civil rights organization is characteristically squawking, but the FBI’s move was patently overdue — so much so that we ought to be asking: Why on earth did the FBI have ties with CAIR in the first place?

While we should applaud the government for finally doing the right thing, we also must seize this moment to consider why this action was necessary, and what it says about the threat we are up against.

That threat is not, essentially, about terrorism. Given the life-and-death stakes involved, it is understandable that government is preoccupied by terrorism (or what Obama’s homeland security secretary, Janet Napolitano, absurdly calls “man-caused disasters”). But jihadist terror is merely the means to a specific end: the installation of sharia, the Islamic legal code, which Muslim fundamentalists regard as the necessary precondition for the achievement of Islam’s universalist ambitions.

Sharia should be of grave concern to us because it is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution and to our way of life. It rejects several core American propositions: that liberty cannot co-exist with an established state religion, that free people have a right to govern themselves irrespective of any religious code’s dictates, that there should be freedom of conscience (sharia holds that apostasy from Islam is not merely a crime but a capital offense), sexual liberty (homosexuality is also a death-penalty offense), and equal protection under the law (sharia privileges Muslims over non-Muslims and men over women). Sharia, furthermore, is the rationale commonly trotted out by militants to justify the use of force (whether we call it “terrorism” or employ such sophistries as “resistance” or “man-caused disasters”) for resolving policy disputes — under the rationale that policies that do not privilege Islam constitute an attack on Islam and therefore justify jihadist violence.

Incrementally establishing sharia is the central imperative of CAIR and several other organizations to which our government has recklessly been reaching out for years, since long before the 9/11 attacks. In sum, administrations of both parties, and executive branch agencies including the FBI, have taken the position that government’s only legitimate concern is the comparatively tiny cohort of terrorists who construe Islamic scriptures to command mass-murder attacks.

Not only have we averted our eyes from the ideology that motivates jihadism. We have affirmatively anointed as Muslim “moderates” the purveyors of this ideology, who are anything but moderate. Worse, the effect has been to empower anti-American elements at the expense of authentic Muslim moderates and reformers who crave liberty.

CAIR is an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian organization founded in 1928 that today boasts divisions throughout the world. The Brotherhood has been operating in the United States since the 1960s in a manner fully consistent with its motto: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Quran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” Its website makes no bones about the fact that it seeks “the introduction of the Islamic Shariah as the basis for controlling the affairs of state and society.”

Last year, the government won convictions in a terrorism-financing trial that targeted an ostensible Islamic charity, the Holy Land Foundation, along with several of its top operatives. CAIR has complained long and loud because prosecutors identified it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case. Its argument that this was a smear is specious. The issue is not whether the government named CAIR on a list disseminated pretrial; what’s germane is the basis for that listing. The government richly supported its assertion with evidence, and no citizen or organization has a right to expunge that which is proved in the public’s courts.

At trial, the jury was treated to a 1991 Brotherhood memorandum that described the organization’s “work in America” as “a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers, so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” CAIR has been the linchpin of that strategy.

Some history is in order. In 1987, the Brotherhood had established Hamas (or “the Islamic Resistance Movement,” as it describes itself). As its charter professes, Hamas
is one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine. Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement in modern times. It is characterized by its deep understanding, accurate comprehension and its complete embrace of all Islamic concepts of all aspects of life, culture, creed, politics, economics, education, society, justice and judgment, the spreading of Islam, education, art, information, science of the occult and conversion to Islam.
In a memorandum filed in a Texas federal court, prosecutors further elaborated that, through the early 1990s, “the Muslim Brotherhood was controlled by Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood members, and the leader of the U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood was Mousa Abu Marzook, who in 1989 was selected to be the leader of HAMAS, a position that he held while residing in the United States and controlling the U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood.” To support Hamas, the Brotherhood established a “Palestine Committee” in the United States.

Marzook (deported in 1995, he is currently wanted on a U.S. terrorism indictment in Chicago) led the Palestine Committee. One of its most important members was Omar Ahmad, who became president of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which Marzook had formed years earlier. In 1993, the Palestine Committee convened a meeting in Philadelphia to plot a strategy for destroying the Oslo Accords’ vision of a two-state solution — Palestine peacefully co-existing with Israel, which Hamas is pledged to destroy. The meeting was secretly surveilled by the FBI, which caught Ahmad conversing with Nihad Awad, the IAP’s public-relations director, about strategies for deceiving Americans about their true intentions.

Less than a year later, Ahmad and Awad formed CAIR. The Holy Land Foundation, which was ultimately shuttered by the government and finally convicted for providing millions of dollars to Hamas, contributed part of the seed money. To serve as CAIR’s communications director, Ahmad and Awad tapped Ibrahim Hooper, another IAP veteran who has publicly acknowledged that his purpose is to establish sharia as the law of the United States.

Since its founding, several CAIR officials have been convicted or deported for terrorism-related activities and for other criminal offenses. CAIR, meanwhile, has sought to undermine national security — and the FBI specifically — at every turn: frequently mounting public-relations campaigns for indicted terror suspects, vigorously opposing the Patriot Act and the surveillance of suspected al-Qaeda communications, and even distributing a “Muslim community safety kit” that discourages cooperation with the FBI.

Despite that sordid record, government officials regarded CAIR as a representative and leader of American Muslims. Our law-enforcement and national-security agencies consulted with it closely and even permitted it to indoctrinate our agents during compulsory “sensitivity training” lectures. Doing so, they raised its profile, facilitated its radical, anti-American agenda, and dispirited our allies in the Muslim community, many of whom are in the United States precisely because they don’t want to live in the totalitarian misery the Muslim Brotherhood and its satellites would impose.

The major threat we face today is not what al-Qaeda may do to the grand structures that house our government and our institutions. It is what radical Islam is accomplishing inside those structures. Thankfully, the FBI has shown CAIR the door. But that only begins to address the problem.

U.S. to Abandon Israel?

Post  Admin on Wed 25 Mar 2009, 12:57 pm

U.S. to Abandon Israel?


The Ramifications for the Fight Against Radical Islam

The short interview below was conducted on December 31, 2008, and posted on the website of the Northeast Intelligence Network. It is a sobering assessment of the direction the U.S. government is moving with respect to support for Israel.

Americans who view the conflict between Israel and the Islamic forces surrounding it as a Middle East regional problem fail to grasp the ramifications for the global war against Islamic terrorism. History demonstrates that Islamist military and cultural expansion was stopped, and in some cases pushed back, when it was met with organized, effective resistance.

Such resistance often proved to be psychologically devastating to the Islamists, who believed their prospective victory over “infidel” societies was divinely ordained and thus inevitable. Since the mid-20th century, Israel has been on the front lines of this resistance. Its successes in resisting Islamic jihad campaigns during the latter half of the 20th century angered militant Muslims around the world, but this successful resistance meant that most of the countries of the world – including the U.S. – did not, during this time period, have to fight an empowered and emboldened Islamic jihad on their own soil.

It is our position that as Israel, at the urging of the U.S., capitulated to Islamist demands, such as in the Oslo Peace Accords, its Islamist enemies were energized, empowered and emboldened. Couple this with a massive immigration of Muslims to Europe and the United Kingdom, the financing of Islamic terrorist and terror-related organizations with petrodollars, and the infiltration of American academia, media and government by Islamists and their sympathizers, and it is no surprise to us that the current wave of Islamic violent and cultural jihad worldwide has achieved the power and momentum it has.

If the U.S. abandons Israel, and Israel falls to the 21st century wave of Islamic jihad, the damage this will do to our collective worldwide efforts to roll back this rising tide will be incalculable. As Osama bin Laden stated shortly after 9/11, the world is looking to follow the “strong horse.” Capitulation in the Middle East will only serve to reinforce the growing belief in the Islamic world that the West is the “weak horse” that is ripe for conquering. The stronger and fiercer this belief becomes, the harder it will be to defeat it.

Moves by the Obama administration, including President Obama’s recent message to Iran, reveal that this administration does not recognize or understand the global ramifications of a defeated Israel and an empowered Islamic jihad. As then-Senator Joe Biden wrote a year ago, “To compare terrorism with an all-encompassing ideology like communism and fascism is evidence of profound confusion.” On the contrary, Biden’s statement is evidence of “profound confusion.”

The struggle in the Middle East is not about a Palestinian state – such a state could have been carved out in an Arab country long ago.

This is about 14 centuries of Islamic hatred of Jews, and the supremacist ideology embedded in the holy books of Islam. And make no mistake: If they can conquer the Jews, they will extend their jihad to the rest of us “infidels,” with weapons of mass destruction in their arsenal.

There is still time for the American people to rise up and demand that we cease capitulating to Islamist demands and actions. This is the reason for being for ACT! for America, www.actforamerica.org.

U.S. Intelligence Official about Israel: “This is just the beginning”

U.S. Intelligence official “breaks silence” on Israel situation”

http://homelandsecurityus.com/?p=25

31 December 2008: Northeast Intelligence Network director Doug Hagmann interviewed a highly-placed U.S. intelligence official late yesterday who not only confirmed rumors about escalated and more intensive Israeli military operations against the Muslim terrorists in Gaza, warned of the increasing probability of abandonment of Israel by the U.S. and other Western countries based on what he termed “malicious intelligence.”

“Remember that term,” advised this well-placed intelligence official, “you’ll be hearing it again.”

“This is just the beginning,” stated this intelligence official, who wished to remain anonymous. This official stated that the possibility for a much more protracted ground war is more likely today than at any other time in the past, adding that Israel is exercising her right to protect herself from her enemies in Gaza. But there is a catch, noted this official, and a big one at that: Israel could be about to lose the support of the United States.

“I have every reason to believe, based on what I’ve seen at my level of [security] clearance especially over the last several years, that Israel will soon be completely on their own… or worse.” When asked what could be worse than losing the support of the United States, he stated: “when our administration provides more support to Arab countries [with] financial and military aid, undercutting Israel’s defense efforts all while pushing Israel to succumb to the pressure of unreasonable demands designed to end with their political annihilation as a nation.”

According to this official, the U.S. has been slowly proceeding down this road. He cited the 2005 surrender of Gush Katif to the Palestinian Authority as one critical example of the slow dismantlement of Israel as a viable nation. “Despite critical intelligence outlining in every possible manner imaginable that this would be a disastrous move leading to the events we are seeing today, it was done anyway,” he stated.

“We are seeing the very scenario play out today that was outlined in intelligence briefs three and four years ago. Knowing that, there is something very wrong with this picture,” he stated.

He added that Western media is also playing a very big role in the current war in the Middle East, thanks, in part, to carefully worded statements prepared by political officials in Washington. Officials in the current administration, like some previous administrations, submit carefully crafted informational releases to a media that is controlled by those having special interests that are contrary to a legitimate peace in the Middle East.

“The game is rigged. At the highest levels of power in the U.S. and even by some in power in Israel, the game is rigged,” he emphasized.

The next obvious question in this interview was, of course, “how is it rigged?” followed by ”how are you in a position to know?”

This official responded by stating that he has spent the last two decades serving in “an unfortunate position where intelligence and politics meet and often collide.” Now, merely days away from retirement, he stated that he is looking forward to leaving his position after conducting over 20 years of intelligence work “that has been molded and massaged to advance the agendas of a select few.”

He continued: “When an intelligence work product that has been thoroughly and properly vetted is submitted to those in Washington, and I see a completely different and entirely inaccurate product intentionally submitted and aired in the media, only to be told ‘that is the way it must be,’ then I know it’s time for me to leave.”

“It is obvious to me that most Americans don’t understand or don’t care what is actually happening in the Middle East relative to Israel. People don’t understand history, or have been subjected to revisionist history based on lies and more lies. Add to that a media that fails to provide an accurate assessment of what is taking place in Israel, in Gaza, and you end up with a very bad situation for Israel,” stated this source. He added that the disinformation coming and going to and from Washington is getting worse, as is the media bias against Israel.

The events currently taking place in Israel are extremely perilous for Israel and especially perilous for the national security of the United States, according to this source. Contrary to the accepted assessments of “Middle East experts” in the news, our intelligence services have “ample evidence to prove active collusion and support between HAMAS and other terrorist organizations, both Sunni and Shite. Further, there is a level of Iranian complicity in this war that is not being talked about, or being dismissed out of hand because of the schism between the Sunni and Shia sects,” stated this source.

Politically Correct Theater of the Absurd

Yesterday we emailed you the link to a video of an Islamist matter-of-factly discussing how easy it would be to smuggle anthrax across our border and kill over 300,000 people. Since then over 40,000 people viewed the video, demonstrating the reach ACT! for America currently has.

Juxtapose that video with the comments recently made by Homeland Security director Janet Napolitano. As the commentary below notes, Napolitano referred to Islamist terrorism as “man-caused disasters.”

As Diana West asks, “Is this a joke?” Unfortunately, no. Political correctness is running so rampant in Washington that the person charged with protecting our “homeland security” twists herself into an absurd rhetorical pretzel in order to avoid using the “I” word. Imagine the scorn that would have been heaped on Franklin D. Roosevelt if, after the attack on Pearl Harbor, he declared war on “man-caused disasters”! That tells how much things have changed in Washington.

We asked yesterday “Why is our shared ACT! for America mission so important? Why is the Islamist threat so dangerous? Why is it essential that we overcome political correctness in America and awaken citizens everywhere?”

You see, we are not only fighting the evil of radical Islamists who are intent on destroying our way of life and replacing our law with shariah law. We are also forced to contend with the willfully self-deceived in our government who are more concerned with appearing respectable than with protecting our safety and liberty.

What can YOU do TODAY that will help us take one more step forward in combating this lunacy?
First, forward this email to everyone you know, and urge them to log on to www.actforamerica.org and sign up for our daily email alerts.


And second, call the Department of Homeland Security “Comment Line,” 202/282-8495, and let them know, in a firm but respectful way, that you are outraged and deeply concerned by Napolitano’s characterization of terrorism.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The war on "man-caused disasters"


But what if the jihadist is a woman?

We're not fighting a War On Terror anymore. And we certainly aren't fighting a defensive action against the global jihad and/or Islamic supremacism. No, what we're doing is fighting a War on "man-caused disasters."

Feel better? Feel more politically correct? Less bigoted, racist, and Islamophobic? Good, because that's all you're going to get from this. You certainly aren't going to get any insight into who the enemy is, or why he (or she, Janet, you sexist) is doing what he is doing.

"'Away From the Politics of Fear,'" from Spiegel, March 16 (thanks to all who sent this in):

Janet Napolitano, 51, is President Obama's new Homeland Security Secretary. She spoke with SPIEGEL about immigration, the continued threat of terrorism and the changing tone in Washington.

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.

Diana West comments:

Is this a joke, a late-night skit's attempt to skewer PC lingo?

No, this is PC lingo. Having abandoned the idiotic but at least somewhat bellicose moniker "War on Terror," we are now into, what...the "Intervention into Man-Caused Disaster."

Of course, there are two PC problems with the "nuance" Mzzz Napolitano claims.

There is that pesky term "man"--sure to rile the feminists, let alone the female suicide bombers. Brace for the day when Secretary Janet discusses "Person-Caused Disasters."

But that leaves the fact that the kind of "persons" who cause the "disasters" in question believe that Allah, not man (and certainly not woman) causes everything. Remember Operation Infinite Justice? That was the name the US tagged onto the military campaign against the Taliban until Muslims complained (p. 166) on the grounds that they believe only Allah dispenses justice, infinite or otherwise. (And that was enough for Uncle Sam to changes names, natch.) This line of religious belief surely makes "Man/Person-Caused Disaster" practically a term of defamation. I'm thinking Madame Secretary will have to go with something else, maybe renaming the whole agency for further sensitivity's sake. Department for the Prevention of Allah-Caused Disasters, anyone?

Why is our shared mission so important?

Why is the Islamist threat so dangerous?

Why is it essential that we overcome political correctness in America and awaken citizens everywhere?

Why?

Act For America News & Alerts please read regular updates

Post  Admin on Sat 28 Feb 2009, 7:49 pm

See Brigitte Live on Webcast!

Last year we launched our “Citizens in Action” conference, a one-day conference designed to inform and equip you to more effectively…
Inform and persuade others about the threat of radical Islam
Communicate with and influence elected officials
Expose political correctness in your local media
Recognize signs of suspicious activity in your community
Nearly 600 people attended one of the five conferences, and here are a just a few responses we received from attendees:
“Powerful! Inspiring! This training is a must for every Act member.”
         Carolyn

“I have seen many things and have been to many seminars and trainings in my life. This truly was the MOST IMPORTANT EVENT I think I have ever attended.”
         Rodney

“Outstanding!”
         Ted and Bridget

“Fantastic! Dynamic speakers, electrifying content and a positive, can-do attitude!”
         Steve

“I missed watching my favorite F.S.C. Bulldogs in their opening game against Wisconsin. I would miss all of their games for 1 day with your committed people.”
         Sean
In fact, the only “complaints” we got were from people who wanted to attend a conference but couldn’t, because there wasn’t one anywhere near them!

So this year we’re going to fix that problem!

This Spring and Fall we have scheduled a total of seven “Citizens in Action” conferences across the nation – Northern Virginia; Nashville; Houston; Denver; Delray Beach, Florida; Bakersfield, California; and Columbia, South Carolina.

This geographic distribution will allow many, many of you our members to be able to attend.

But for those of you who can’t, or don’t live near one of these sites – you still can!!

Because we are going to do a live webcast from six of the seven conferences. This means that, if you can’t physically attend one of these conferences, you can watch it live in the comfort of your own home.

All you need is a computer that has the ability to download YouTube videos and access to any kind of high speed internet connection (DSL, cable, or wireless). The only kind of internet connection that won’t work is dial-up.

You’ll be able to follow along in your conference manual and even be able to email us questions during the conference as you watch the live webcast.

Registration for these conferences is fast, safe and easy. Simply click here. http://www.actforamerica.org/index.php/citizens-in-action

When you do, you can check out the topics that are covered, find the dates and locations for each conference, and complete your registration.

Speaking of YouTube, if you would like to view a 2:50 video of Brigitte talking about the “Citizens in Action” conferences, please click here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VH0L-7wDMs
We know there are hundreds and hundreds of our chapter leaders and members who want to attend one of our conferences, meet other members, and have time for extra questions and discussion. For those of you who can attend, in addition to the conference manual, you’ll receive an ACT! for America lapel pin and a specially selected documentary film or presentation on DVD. You’ll also have the added benefit of being able to meet and talk to Brigitte.

But we don’t want to leave anyone out. So if you want to attend, but can’t get to one of the locations, register for one of the six live webcasts. And when you click herehttp://www.actforamerica.org/index.php/citizens-in-action to register, I know you’ll be delighted to learn that we’re offering a special reduced registration rate for those registering for a webcast – a nearly 60% savings.

Like I said – we don’t want anyone left out.

I’d like to make one last point. We’re so sure you’ll walk away from this conference better informed, inspired, equipped and empowered, that we’ll make you this guarantee.

If, after you attend or watch a conference via webcast, you’re not 100% satisfied, we’ll refund your registration fee.

We made this offer at all five of our prior conferences, and not a single person asked for a refund.

If you didn’t get a chance to attend a conference last year, you don’t have to miss out this year. To find out more information, and to register either to attend a conference or watch a live webcast of one, simply click here. http://www.actforamerica.org/index.php/citizens-in-action

Please forward this email to friends and family you think would be interested. Thank you!

Yours for America,
Guy Rodgers
Executive Director
