We the American people call on our U.S. Congress to conduct hearings for the purpose of examining extremist materials that have been found in American mosques that:

  • exhort Muslims to engage in holy war (jihad) against us;
  • incite terror and violence against us;
  • call for abolishing our constitutional form of government and replacing it with the theological totalitarianism of strict Islamic law, known as “sharia.”

There have been a number of studies of materials sold or distributed in mosques in America;

These studies have uncovered materials containing information that include calls to jihad (holy war), incitement of terror and violence, and the abolition of our constitutional form of government;

One such study of 100 American mosques found that 75% of these mosques contained such material;

There have also been video and audio recordings of Islamic leaders in America calling for jihad against America, violence against America, and the replacement of America’s constitutional government with Islamic sharia law, such as these words by a leading American imam, “…and even if we go to war brothers and sisters, and one day we will…that’s why you’re commanded to jihad…When Allah demands us to fight, we’re not stopping…”;

Such incitements to jihad, terror, violence and the abolition of our constitutional form of government are illustrated by the following examples, excerpted from materials that have been distributed in mosques in recent years:

  • “…we [Muslims] will not stop…but will pursue this evil force to its own lands, invade its Western heartland, and struggle to overcome it until all the world shouts by the name of the Prophet and the teachings of Islam spread throughout the world. Only then will Muslims achieve their fundamental goal, and there will be no more ‘persecution’ and all religion will be exclusively for Allah….”
  • “To be true Muslims, we must prepare and be ready for jihad in Allah’s way. It is the duty of the citizen and the government. The military education is glued to faith and its meaning, and the duty to follow it.”
  • “[O]ur doctrine states that if you accept any religion other than Islam, like Judaism or Christianity, which are not acceptable, you become an unbeliever. If you do not repent, you are an apostate and you should be killed because you have denied the Koran.”
  • A document which states that supporting democracy amounts to “nullify[ing] one’s Islam.” Another which exhorts Muslims that changing government systems such as democratic ones is “binding in principle, in law, in self-defense, in community and as a sacred obligation of jihad.”
  • “Muslim countries have been ruled by manmade systems ….This overlay of secular cultures makes it all the more necessary to abolish all traces of such primitive life (jahiliyya) and to reinforce the understanding and application of the eternal and universal Islamic deen [religion] until it becomes the ruling power throughout the world.”

The links between an extremist ideology and Islamic terror were reported in the 9/11 Commission Report, which stated:

“But the enemy is not just ‘terrorism,’ some generic evil. This vagueness blurs the strategy. The catastrophic threat at this moment in history is more specific. It is the threat posed by Islamist terrorism – especially al Qaeda network, its affiliates and its ideology.”

A Pew Research Center survey in 2007 found that 26% of American Muslims under the age of 30 believe suicide bombings are at times justified and legitimate;

Since the practice of religion in America does not include the right to create the imminent threat of terror or incite violence, terror, and the advocacy of the abolition of our constitutional form of government;

We, the American people, have a right to know to what extent the incitement to terror, violence and the overthrow of our constitutional form of government is being advocated through materials within Muslim tax-exempt organizations in our country, and a recent nationwide poll found that 74% of American voters agree that Congress should conduct hearings to examine such materials;

Since there is sufficient evidence to indicate that the information in some materials sold or distributed in mosques in America rises to the level of a genuine threat to our nation’s security and liberty;

Since it is the first responsibility of our federal government to safeguard the national security of our country and its citizens and guests;

And because the oath of office of a Member of Congress is an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution;

We, the undersigned, call upon Congress to conduct hearings to examine materials that have been uncovered that have been sold or distributed in mosques in the United States, to determine if these materials violate federal statutes governing tax-exempt organizations; to determine if these materials violate federal anti-terrorism statutes; and to determine if these materials violate federal statutes prohibiting sedition, the advocacy and/or effort of abolishing or overthrowing our constitutional form of government.

Start Making Sense II

“The moment people cease to be judgmental, they cease to be civil, they cease to be moral, they cease to be free. The essence of choice is being judgmental; being able to discern: having access to information and then being able to render a moral just verdict that is based on that information. In Islamic countries and in communist countries, there’s no access to information so you control people by what you tell them. But in a free society where information is ubiquitous, you either control people by getting them not to care so that they don’t investigate, or you make being judgmental a crime. And the biggest sin in political correctness is being judgmental. And so they’ve rendered a generation of Americans incapable of thinking or acting morally.” Craig Winn on Atlas Shrugged radio posted on Winn’s website 7/16/2007.

 

I’m ready to regularly commit the sin of “being judgmental.” In our time, where “tolerance” is worshipped above God, I’m betting that will bring out some “haters” out. Now get that logic: the only thing you can be intolerant about is intolerance. Heh heh. I think that being judgmental shows you have a brain: that you have taken in a reasonable amount of information, pondered it over with the help of God Almighty, determined what is the best course, and made a decision to stand for what you know is right.

 

Listen to the interview (it’s 12 megs, and may take a bit to load. 17:30 Winn talks about “ignorance and apathy.” At 21:00 you’ll find the roots of PC, and the quote above (22:04).  At 34:31 into the interview is where you’ll find the three part plan for victory over jihad, including the notion of shunning PC nonsense).

 

The first thing Winn pushes as necessary to not be crushed by jihad is to be able to shun PC nonsense and say, “This is wrong!” Why is this so hard for a lot of people? People who cannot pronounce wrong are not open-minded, they are idiots, because they will be crushed by the evil they don’t think exists. The devil wants more people who say, “I don’t know.” It gives him an edge. Now read along with the statements below, and notice how good it feels to say the truth.

 

  • It is wrong to fly airplanes into buildings full of innocents.
  • It is wrong to dance and sing in the streets celebrating the killing of thousands of innocents.
  • It is wrong to blow up innocents in a market or school.
  • It is wrong to blow up trains to prove a point and get your way (and yet it worked in Spain)
  • It is wrong to blow up busses full of innocents just trying to get somewhere.
  • It is wrong to call for the destruction of a whole nation, as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has done with Israel.
  • It is wrong to make special concessions to a religion that has proven itself to be largely destructive (“murderous” is not to judgmental a word, actually) to nonbelievers and themselves, and who’s leaders have pledged destruction of “The West.”

 

When something is wrong, geesh, don’t be afraid to say, “That’s wrong.” It shows you have a brain. In fact, not saying, “That’s wrong” shows you have yielded your brain to a more insidious power: the stronghold of “political correctness,” which is, by definition, a road to insanity. Sane people are able to make judgments about what is good and what is not, and you don’t need a bible for your conscience to tell you that blowing up innocent people in a marketplace is wrong. Or giving concessions to a religion who’s holy book mandates violent worldwide takeover. Say it with me, “That’s wrong!” See how good that feels?

 

If you are unsure about whether you can say, “that’s wrong,” that’s okay. You just need a little more enlightenment, and you can do it. Read up! Feel free to compare! Compare how many innocents Christians blow up daily versus how many are killed by the dark directives of Islam. Warning: that might produce a thought in you that one response might be better than another. You can do it! You can determine what is right and good, and spread common sense.

 

When co-worker, friend, or acquaintance says, “hey, the Palestinians have a point, they’re desperate, and only doing what they can,” then you say, “No! That’s wrong.” When they say, “Well, I’ve heard Islam is a ‘religion of peace’ and they deserve a right to practice that, and we should make concessions for them,” then you say, “No! That’s wrong.” When you hear people say, “Iran deserves has as much rights to nuclear technology as anyone on the planet,” then you say, “No! That’s wrong.” It is good to not let “wrong” flourish; that only destroys us.

 

It just makes sense to get information, and make a decision for good. And there is good. All actions are not equal. All ideas are not equal. All religions are not equal.

 

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. – Ecclesiastes 3:11

 

Yet, you can fathom some of what God is doing. And as you partner with him in choosing good, you make things beautiful in your time.

 

You know it in your heart. You just need to discover good, choose good, and make a stand (verbally) for good, everywhere you go.
