All you need to know about the recent uprising in Egypt can be found in two words floating innocuously behind the mainstream headlines and pictures of hundreds of thousands of Egyptians in the streets: Muslim Brotherhood.

Here in America, we value freedom, and the idea of different religious factions vying for attention is actually applauded and encouraged, even differing points of view, and the exchange is healthy. But the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is not about freedom from tyrant Hosni Mubarak, it’s about using the momentum of unrest to usher in the bedrock foundation of the Muslim Brotherhood from its inception in 1928: the imposition of strict sharia law for every citizen.

The media would have you believe that Hosni Mubarak, the president of Egypt for three decades, is a maniacal tyrant who crushes dissent and rules the country with an iron fist, and they’d be right on that account. But what the aren’t telling you is that is how it’s done in Middle Eastern, predominantly Muslim countries. The idea of “democracy” as we know it, is totally foreign to them. Democracy is “man’s law” and it totally incompatible with (Islamic) sharia law: “the law of Allah.” In any Islamic country, people with power execute their rule at their will, without regard to individual’s concerns, and they crush dissent, and generate a coalition of disparate groups – through coercion, threats, and violence – that will “go along” with them. And the corrupt government (and they’re ALL corrupt) keeps the country from descending into chaos with this twisted kind of rule. This is the norm in the Middle East. The only “free democracy” in the whole Middle East is Israel.

History is busy repeating itself. In 1979 there was unrest in Iran. The people of Iran, urged on by the Mullah’s, revolted against the tyrannical president Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi (the “Shah of Iran”) for being too pro-Western, and for being tyrannical in his treatment of Iranian citizens who disagreed with his policies. Indeed U.S. President Jimmy Carter denounced the Shah for human rights violations, withdrew support, and gave a green light for Islamic radicals to institute a new government. What we have now in Iran is a hard-core Islamic theocracy, dominated by sharia law, religious police (and even worse atrocities than under the Shah, such as this woman killed by Iran’s morality police (caution: graphic)), dictates from the Mullah’s, and defiance to the world by President Ahmadinejad, who speaks to Islamic audiences that Israel is a disgraceful blot that needs to be wiped off the map. He has also publicly proclaimed a right for Iran to be a nuclear nation (for peaceful purposes, of course). More crazy talk from him here, here, here, here, and here. Ahmadinejad, an Islamic “Shiite,” believes fervently in the return of the Mahdi (the Islamic “messiah” who will bring the world fully into submission under Islam), which will only come after a time of great unrest. Ahmadinejad hopes to bring unrest: infidels be damned to their rightful place in hell, and Muslims caught in the crossfire will go to “paradise.” The threat of “mutually assured destruction” (MAD) that kept the cold war in check is not a deterrent to Islamic fundamentalists (and that IS the Muslim Brotherhood). Thanks to the changes the world allowed in 1979, Iran is now the heart of worldwide unrest. And we’re doing it again.

The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is not about freedom, it’s about ousting a leader – Hosni Mubarak – who they feel is “not Islamic enough.” This is their chance. El Baradei is sympathetic to the cause of the Muslim Brotherhood, if not opportunistic to be used by them to achieve his own power goals. There’s plenty of corruption on both sides. Baradei wants to seize power, and the Muslim Brotherhood will help him with that. The Muslim Brotherhood would like to see Egypt become a sharia state, and Baradei will likely go along with that. This will be a disaster for U.S. interests if this happens. In essence, this shift represents the formation of a second Iran. And we know how well that regime has worked out.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. branch, the Muslim American Society has a noteworthy goal telling its members that,

…all their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” their 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 religions.

It should be noted here “God’s religion” is that of Allah (Islam). And Islam means “submit.”

The Muslim Brotherhood anywhere is not a human right’s protector, nor is it interested in “freedom” and “democracy.” The Muslim Brotherhood’s has spawned Al Qaeda (worldwide), Hamas in Palestine (who’s charter calls for the destruction of Israel), and their slogan is, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet [Mohammed] is our leader.  Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

And if all of this is not enough, Iran recently weighed in with it’ support, saying the Egyptian revolt is the start of an Islamic revolution in the Middle East.

What is happening in Egypt is pivitol. Everywhere Islam takes hold, human rights are flushed. Mubarak is bad. Sharia is worse. The Muslim Brotherhood is the purveyor of this change.

BJ Shay is the host of the morning radio show on KISW 99.9 FM in Seattle. There’s usually a good deal of topical talk on the show on “The Rock.” This morning’s brief topic at 7:30am had to do with Shea’s opinions on Tea Party Nation (website) founder Judson Phillips comments that congressman Keith Ellison should be retired because he’s a Muslim.

Shea is clearly no partaker of any religion, and stated this morning he doesn’t mind if anyone practices their own religion as long as they “keep it to themselves.” Of course, he thought it ridiculous that someone would consider ousting a congressman because he’s a Muslim.

This speaks VOLUMES of Shay’s ignorance.

He also said he thinks Islam is just like Christianity, which turns UP the volume on that ignorance. He should watch the genius Swedish video  “Three Things About Islam” so he can at least sound like he knows a LITTLE about Islam.

USA Today piled on about this subject, bringing the recent firing of NPR’s Juan Williams into it, and suggesting that Islamophobia is on par with homophobia. They’re not: gays don’t usually threaten harm (or death) if you if you say you’re “uncomfortable” with them. Islam does. Gays don’t have a codified religious law that is supposed to govern everything they do. Islam does (sharia). Gay literature doesn’t say, “slay the infidels wherever you find them.” Islam does (Qur’an 9:5).

A phobia is an irrational fear. We have a legitimate fear from an ideology that has NO “live and let live” mentality, and in fact is bent on forcing the world through coercion, subversion (creeping sharia), intimidation (CAIR lawsuits, Ground Zero Mosque), or threats of harm or death to succumb to Islam. Islam MEANS “submit.” Islamic sharia law – in the minds of all Muslims: “god’s law” – is incompatible with freedom and democracy.

The Qur’an says, “Allah is not bound by any contract or treaty with non-Muslims, nor is His Apostle.” (9:3). Think of how that plays out on an international level, with all the apologizing and pandering President Obama does in Muslim nations. Do you think any Muslim is bound in his own mind when he says, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States.”

Amir Taheri sums up the Muslim mindset beautifully in this GREAT article in the Iranian Press Service:

“To say that Islam is incompatible with democracy should not be seen as a disparagement of Islam. On the contrary, many Muslims would see it as a compliment because they sincerely believe that their idea of rule by God is superior to that of rule by men, which is democracy”.

There is no “equality” in Islam; and non-Muslims are not just “neutral unbelievers,” they are “inferior.” Christianity – the religion of most Americans – upholds the dignity of EVERY person, which is why you see Americans coming to the rescue of nations subject to national disasters (even in HUGE Muslim population countries like Indonesia). The only way a Muslim can rightly represent free people as a congressman is to discard sharia, that is, to discard the codification of “god’s law” in favor of respecting the laws of this nation. As you can imagine, any practicing Muslim would not do this; It’s tantamount to discarding Islam. So really, the only Muslim fit for upholding the constitution of the United States is a MINO: a “Muslim In Name Only.” In other words: a non-Muslim.

America is beginning to see the introduction of halal certified food products and certified companies thus the need for this exposition.

Halal is arabic and translates to legal or permitted.  Haram translates to forbidden and mushbooh translates to unknown. Food has to be prepared a certain way to meet Sharia Law/ Halal standards.

Halal is not necessarily only a food item but it can also define an individual as well as an individual company.  sFor example,  a tomato is halal, but it may not be processed according to Sharia Law thus making it haram or mushbooh.

In order for a company, which is defined as farms, ranches, fisheries, and food processing plants,  to become Halal Certified,  another process has to take place, which we will discuss that later.

Don’t think that halal only applies to food.  It also applies to all non-food products such as lotions, hair sprays, make-up, etc.

However let’s just focus on food.  Halal foods are foods that have no pork,  blood, or alcohol  within the product.  If the food product is a meat then halal extends to how it is processed. The animal has to be alive at the time the animal is slaughtered.

This answers the question as to why Muslims want certification on fish and poultry products.

Sharia law demands that food processors add other components in order to get the Halal Certification of the product, or the company itself which includes the Halal Certification logo, see below

To get a certification, a company must:

  1. Have Halal employees who are involved in the production which “includes the person in charge, those who order the raw materials,  and those in charge of packaging.”  In other words, the company must hire halal compliant employees.  Does this mean the company can only hire koranic observant muslims or will employees of the company have to submit to Sharia compliant rules including conversion to Islam?
  2. Slaughter the animal according to Sharia Law.  This means that the animal is either hung up, or placed in a position so that the head is pointing towards Mecca, alive,  and then ONLY a muslim can take a sharp knife,  and slice its jugular vein allowing the beast to be drained of its blood while a muslim of “sound mind” screeches “allah akbar” over the animal.
  3. Once the animal has been drained of blood then the animal is processed in a plant free from pork, blood, or alcohol processing.

Not only do companies have to comply with the rules above but they will also have to change recipes they may have had for 100 years or more.  The Campbell’s Soup Company, which was established in 1922, or the Cocoa Cola Company which became incorporated in 1892 will have to strip itself of the way they do business. Companies seeking halal standards will have to have an entire wing just to deal with halal standards i.e. hiring, building of plants, food processing, etc.   This begs the question: Will these companies have to submit to Sharia compliant financing as well including giving zakat?

Currently, if an observant muslim wants to know if a food product is halal they can go to one of two websites,

  1. the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America’s website, or
  2. the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), logo below.

The customer can scan the 100s of products listed for halal status and or certification. ISNA IS working towards advancing its cause of certifying as many Canadian and American companies as possible.

One argument they use is:

Islam is the fastest growing religion, and the American muslim population is growing,  thus,  don’t you want to get involved with this yearly 170 billion dollar market?  Sure you do! Here’s how to do it!

What they don’t tell you at the time of the company’s multicultural submission is that the companies have to build set part plants and hire only muslims.

The companies named above are going Halal in European markets including Canada.  McDonald’s Company just announced that its British stores are selling halal products.  When this writer wrote to the American McDonald’s Company announcing her boycott of all future McDonald’s sales, the representative stated

McDonald’s USA has no connection to the European menu selections.

A closer examination of her assertion states otherwise as the stock isn’t segregated by national markets and that it is still ALL one global company, so make sure when you write to any of these companies be aware of this future talking point.

In conclusion, what starts in Europe soon becomes advanced on the North American continent and I for one don’t want to spend my money on products that comply with a regressive political ideology that wants to do to me, and what was done to Nick Berg,  in the same manner that they slaughter their meat.

Rep Sue Myrick is now a target of Islamic fundamentalists who desperately want to shut her up.  She is NOT and “Islamaphobe,” but that is the weapon of choice used by stealth jihad apologists and defenders. In this op-ed piece, she responds truthfully and poignantly about the attempt to deliberately place CAIR interns at the highest levels of United States national security. Read the whole thing; it’s astonishing.

– Paul Revere

Rep. Sue Myrick op-ed:

Last week, I held a press conference on Capitol Hill attended by three of my colleagues in the House of Representatives to call for a federal investigation (s) into a non-profit group called the Council on American Islamic Relations (C.A.I.R.)

Here are the facts:

1. CAIR has documented ties to the terrorist organization HAMAS. This is stated fact by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In an April 28, 2009 letter to US Senator Jon Kyl, the FBI wrote the following:
“As you know, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in the United States v. Holy Land Foundation et al. (Cr. No. 3:04-240-P (N.D.TX.). During that trial, evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestinian Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestinian Committee and HAMAS, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI.”

In case you are not familiar with the Holy Land trial referenced above, it was a Dallas, Texas trial that ended with guilty verdicts on 108 counts of funneling money ($12 million) to HAMAS.

2. The purpose of our press conference was to make public an internal CAIR memo that documented CAIR’s stated goal of placing CAIR interns in the offices of members of Congress, especially the members who serve on the Homeland Security, Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. Let me be clear here, CAIR, a group whom the FBI says is affiliated with the terrorist group HAMAS, is trying to place their interns in the offices of those members who serve on the three committees that handle national security related issues. National Security is the first responsibility of the federal government.

3. Following our press conference, CAIR, immediately labeled we four members as bigots and started their public relations campaign to discredit us by claiming that we were against Muslims working on Capitol Hill. We never said that. At no time during our press conference did we even insinuate that we were investigating Muslims being interns on Capitol Hill. Go to http://www.youtube.com/suemyricknc09 and watch the press conference yourself.

Our focus was and is on CAIR and CAIR alone, not Muslims.

Likewise CAIR tried to make this a Republican vs. Democrat thing, because the four members at the press conference happened to be Republican.

How then does CAIR explain Democrat Senator Charles Schumer’s call earlier this year for a government-wide ban on CAIR in the federal government due to their ties to HAMAS? Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer has likewise made public her opinions of CAIR and any Google search will find her remarks.

4. CAIR is spending time, money and energy to position themselves as the spokespeople for the moderate Muslim community. Problem is CAIR is not a moderate Muslim organization. It is a radical front group for HAMAS. So who is CAIR competing with for this designation? The real moderate Muslim groups/individuals in America. Groups and individuals like the following who are committed to countering Islamist extremism:

Dr. Hedieh Mirahmadi – President World Organization for Resource Development and Education (WORDE)
Zeyno Baran – Director for the Center for Eurasian Policy at the Hudson Institute
Farid Ghadry – President of the Reform Party of Syria
Manda Zand Ervin – Founder and director of the Alliance of Iranian Women
Omran Salman – Arab Reformists Project, ‘Aafaq (Arabic for “horizons”).
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser – American Islamic Forum for Democracy
Karim Bromund – Director of Inter-Religious Affairs for the Islamic Supreme Council of America

I SUPPORT the Muslim individuals and groups mentioned above. These groups renounce terrorists and their radical ideology. They are trying their hardest to be heard and recognized in America, but are being overshadowed and out-funded by CAIR. Today, when something happens that impacts the Muslim community, the media calls CAIR (an unindicted co-conspirator to terrorism and a HAMAS front group) for comment on behalf of American Muslims. What an insult the media is performing on the Muslim community. Instead they should be calling Muslim groups/individuals like those named above. This is part of the reason we are focusing our attention on CAIR and exposing them for who they are. For one they pose a threat to our national security, and two, they deny the ability of legitimate Muslim groups to gain credibility.

5. In July of this year I held a summit on Capitol Hill where I introduced the leaders of eight moderate Muslim organizations to the heads of several US Agencies, Members of Congress and congressional staff. For example, they met with representatives from the State Department, USAID, Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. How can I be against Muslims working on Capitol Hill and hold such an event? Go to http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.3881/pub_detail.asp and read for yourself about this summit.

See through the lies and realize what is really going on here.

We are trying to expose a HAMAS Front Group (CAIR) for who they are, and they are crying we are anti-Muslim hoping that media outlets will ignore the terrorist claim and instead pick it up as a race/religion story. When those claims don’t work, they claim it’s a Republican political thing.

Americans, on this subject we need to stop the Republican vs. Democrat, Conservative vs. Liberal, Christian vs. Muslim division and unite on one simple point…. CAIR is a front group for HAMAS. It was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a terrorism case that lead to 108 convictions of funneling $12 million to HAMAS. Because of the evidence produced in that case, the FBI severed all ties with them. This same CAIR, by their own admission, is trying to place people inside the offices of members of Congress who deal with national security issues (judiciary, homeland security and intelligence committees). I serve on one of those committees, Intelligence, am the co-chairwoman of the House Anti-Terrorism Caucus, and have spent the better part of the last four years working every day on terrorism related issues.

If we Americans fail to set aside our political, religious and ideological differences and unite when we encounter the enemy in such stark and plain terms, then God help us.

Obama’s Islamic advisor (Dahlia Mogahed) no doubt has told him that Islam is a “religion of peace” and all of Iranian president Ahmadinejad’s bravado about a new, previously untold underground uranium enrichment plant is just a bunch of saber rattling to gain attention. I’m sure Obama’s also been told that the recent test of Iran’s Sahib-3 missiles with 1,200 mile range (enough to strike Israel) is just a routine test.

Obama – and most liberals – desperately want to believe that these people are civilized, and that we can talk them out of their desire to “wipe Israel off the map” by just understaaaanding them. By being seeensitive to their desires, we can cajole them into working hand in hand with the rest of the world. Unicorns and rainbows will herald a new era of peace because we taaaalked with the maniacal dictators, and they took our message to heart and really believed us when we showed them through our humble apologies and disarming ourselves and removing missile defenses from our (former) allies. They will beat their swords into plowshares, and Ahamadinejad and Netenyahoo will sing Kum By Yah together.

Answer this question:

When in all of recorded history has a maniacal dictator ever put down his weapons and layed down his armies because someone talked him into acting peacefully?

You already know the answer: It has never happened. Hitler. Pol Pot. Hirohito. Keep going. A weak America doesn’t make dictators more willing to work with us, it makes them more willing to attack us and crush our allies us by any means while they have the opportunity.

Ahmadinejad strongly adheres to the Shiite belief that the return of the Mahdi will restore peace rid the world of error, injustice, and tyranny (go figure!). That is great, until you understand that the Mahdi will only return after “the world is washed in blood” – World War III – and Ahmadinejad wants that!

The left desperately doesn’t want to believe this truth: WWIII accomplishes the Shiite goal of “the return of the Mahdi.” Millions of Muslims believe this with excitement, including Iranian president Ahmadinejad. And collateral damage (his own people, and other warriors for Islam), and “innocents” (that’s probably where you would put yourself) don’t matter. In his mind, death brings righteous Muslims into paradise quicker, infidels get their right place in hell, and praise Allah, the Mahdi is almost here!

Check this video, especially “hasten the return of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi” (at :46, right out of the maniacal dictators mouth at the UN last week).

There are only two groups of people with Islam. The first is dar al-Islam (the “house of Islam”). Those who have submitted to Islam (and “Islam” means “submit”) are in that category. If you’re reading this, chances are you are not in it. There is only one issue on the table for Ahmadinejad: “will you submit fully to Islam, and institute shariah law in place of democracy?” If the answer is “no” (and it is), then we live in dar al-harb (the house of war), whether you like it or not, and whether you agree with it or not. You don’t even have to do anything to make them angry: you are a filthy plague on this earth by your very existence, and those who are within Islam (“his pure household and his noble companions” per Ahmadinejad’s own voice above) have a duty to cleanse the world. Remember, Osama Bin Laden declared war on the West, and fundamentalist Islamists are at war with you, and what are you going to do about it? If you’re not going to convert to Islam and join the jihad against the infidels, then you are the enemy.

Fundamentalist Muslims don’t want to talk,

they want Islam to prevail at any cost.

(and you’re probably getting in the way of that by breathing).

There are peaceful Muslims, but there is no peaceful Islam.

As one blogger put it: “Obama’s unclenched fist policy is failing miserably.”

  • Let Obama know that you want him to stand firm against Islam’s war against the world.
  • Complete list of congress’ email and fax numbers here.
  • Another “contact congress” option is here.
  • Contact your representatives to put pressure on him to protect us and our interests from these religious warriors.

PR sez: Miranda righs are for american CITIZENS, not for enemies on the battlefield (including those non-citizens that may be potting mass destruction here on our own soil). This blast of common sense – even with this apologetic administration – is refreshing!

Another Victory in Congress!!

Senate Votes to Prohibit Reading Miranda

Rights to Terrorists Captured in Afghanistan.

by Guy Rodgers, Executive Director

 

Every victory we win in the struggle against radical Islam brings us one step closer to our ultimate goal of protecting America’s security and freedoms from this evil threat.

On June 11th we emailed you the Weekly Standard article that reported the following disturbing news:

“…the Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee.”

News reports like this one, along with our email alert to over 60,000 ACT! for America members, raised the profile of this issue significantly. We wrote some Members of Congress about it, and we got the attention of some of them.

Less than four weeks after we sent you this email report, during a Senate Committee on Armed Services hearing, Senator Jeff Sessions introduced Senate Amendment #1661. According to a response letter we received on August 4th from another Senator, Amendment 1661 “would prevent Miranda rights from being provided to suspected Al Qaeda terrorists who are detained by members of the U.S. military or intelligence community.”

The amendment was approved by voice vote and included in the overall Defense Authorization bill, which then passed the Senate 87 to 7. We are optimistic this amendment will be retained in the final House-Senate version of the bill, and then become law.

Most people aren’t aware of this significant congressional action. It wasn’t on the front page of newspapers around the country. But who knows how many acts of terror will be thwarted in the future due to intelligence obtained from captured terrorists who are not read Miranda rights?

  • Most Americans do not know they are protected from lawsuits being filed against them when they report suspicious activity.
  • Most Americans don’t know authors in New York writing about terrorism and radical Islam are protected from intimidation lawsuits filed against them in other countries.
  • And, should this latest Senate action become law, most Americans won’t know that future terrorist acts will be thwarted thanks to intelligence gathering that is not shackled by the absurdity of reading Miranda rights to captured enemy combatants.

ACT! for America and its “sister” organization American Congress for Truth played a role in each of these important victories.

Our voices – and our votes – matter!!

This is our mission, to roll back the threat of radical Islam, in whatever form it takes. The more members and chapters we have, the stronger our voice. The stronger our voice, the more victories we will win.

Do you know ONE person who isn’t receiving our email alerts, who isn’t aware of the severity of the threat and what ACT! for America is doing to combat it?

If so, would you forward this email to that person today and ask that person to sign up for our email alerts? All they have to do is log on to www.actforamerica.org and click on the tab at the upper right that says “Sign Up.”

This simple action will make our voice stronger and help make America safer for us, our children and our grandchildren.

Yours for the America we love,

Guy Rodgers

for now.

Remember, the “Fall of Capitalism,” “Rise of Islam” conference was cancelled at the Aqsa School in Illinois primarily because of pressure from ACT members!

It IS good news, BUT remember, although the conference was cancelled, the ideas behind it have not gone away,  and they will likely find a new venue to propagate their Anti-American treason here in the US.

Stay vigilant, and remember this small victory over this “Independence Day” weekend.
