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.

Hey, this is only from the last couple days. I could do this every other day and never run out of fresh quotes!! Do you have any from your own neck of the woods? – PR

 

“I sincerely hope that when the president goes in for his annual check-up, the doctors at Bethesda will do a brain scan. Surely something must be terribly wrong with a man who seems to be far more concerned with a Jew building a house in Israel than with Muslims building a nuclear bomb in Iran.” — Burt Prelutsky

 

F— Canada Day” former Canadian Arab Federation exec Omar Shaban on his Facebook page. He’s merely reflecting the Islamic standard known worldwide to Muslims that “Islam transcends nationality.” Traditional Islam teaches that Muslims should respect only their allegiance to the umma (the Islamic community of the world), not to the nation-state in which they live.

 

“The question that arises out of the overwhelmingly angry reaction to Sarkozy’s view is whether anything associated with the religion of Islam is beyond intense scrutiny and interrogation”  Sentletse Diakanyo in an update on this story. “Burka violates women’s right to dignity,” in the Mail & Guardian Online, July 1

 

“Muslims went out in the streets, dancing and chanting ‘Come to Jihad’ and the ‘Cross is the enemy of God’, with the security forces chanting along with them!”  Article by by Elizabeth Kendal for ASSIST News Service, July 1 … Welcome to Egypt.

 

“We don’t want churches on our street. Today we are going to burn the church, and if you continue we are going to burn your house also.” — Flier dropped at the door of a Christian leader in Zanzibar, June 28, 2009. Ahh, feel the love and tolerance of all faiths!

 

And our last bastion of complete ignorance:

“And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.” — Barack Obama, Cairo, June 4, 2009

The following is from Brigitte Gabriel’s “Act For America” e-newsletter; I haven’t seen this on the national site, so I share with you here. You can sign up for the e-newsletter here. Act For America also has a news page. It occured to me that there are at least 35 (known) jihadist training camps here in the USA (see here and here), and law enforcement says “our hands are tied” and “we can’t do anything” because “they haven’t done anything wrong” (yet) and they are exercising “free speech.” The prosecutorial idea of the “imminent threat” exclusion to free speech clause may need to be clarified. And let’s not be afraid to say “treason” either when it comes to Islamic leaders who virulently proclaim publicly the desire for the destruction of the United States. In a common sense world, jihadist training camps on our soil would be emptied, and these large-scale-disasters-waiting-to-happen would be locked away forever.  – PR

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

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.

She’s a radio host in Minneapolis, and has a website dedicated to jihad awareness: http://www.olivetreeviews.org/. I wish I could give you a direct link to streaming audio, but her site is not set up that way. You can click here to go to here archive page, and look for the May 2, 2009 interview with Ilan Sharon.

Most Americans still think of this war – the jihad that has been declared against us – as being “over there” somewhere. It’s not personal, so why should we even bother. Markell talks about the difficulty in comprehension to westerners about Islam’s influence around the world in places like Bethlehem, Sudan, Somalia, and Gaza. “Where radical Islam exists, pretty much ruin will follow. That’s a very sad commentary but it’s true. Their following sharia law in many of these places – which is devastating – and yet, they want to bring sharia law to America and they’re partially succeeding.”

Their real goal is America, but they realize it’s not going to be as easy as Sudan or Somalia, and they’re busy laying the groundwork now so that we will let them take over, step by step. Once Islam has established concrete sharia “rights” in this country, it will exponentially more difficult (if not downright impossible) to stop.

Markell talks about the forthcoming movie “The Third Jihad” and that this movie is based on the account of an American Muslim doctor, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a former physician to the US Congress, and about what he discovered, the secret manifesto of the American Muslim Brotherhood. After 9-11, he felt he finally had to start telling the truth about radical Islam’s intent for America:

A grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within.

 The movie trailer says it well: “We all know about terrorism. This is the war you don’t know about.”

A quote from Sharon on the radio show also makes a serious point, “The values that we have as Americans – it doesn’t matter if you’re a religious person or not, I’m just talking about basic American values –  … contradict with the radical Islam values.”

Jasser is working for reform within the American Muslim community because fundamentalist Islamic values stand against American values.

The only think I might ad is that reform with the Muslim community is practically impossible, because Islam itself protects against being reformed. Video example here. Article about it here. “Moderate” Muslims are afraid. They fear being ostracized (or worse) by the Muslim community here in America, and they fear harsh retribution against family members back in their Muslim countries of origin. It is highly unlikely that Muslims themselves will reform Islam, even in “free speech” America.

They must be intentionally stopped. Every little bit of the internal creeping imposition of many thousands of tiny steps of sharia law must be intentionally stopped.

I keep tellin’ ya: the best up to date TRUTH about the global jihad is at Jihad Watch. It’s more tools in your belt: informing those around you one person at a time. 

So here ya go with the bullet points (pun intended, although the “sword” is the weapon of choice). Headlines you’ll find at JW today:

  • Denmark delays freedom of speech conference to avoid offending Muslims — in case Geert Wilders shows up (But hey, who has anything to fear from “The Religion of Peace”).
  • Saudi daily: Israel will use swine flu against its neighbors (Of COURSE they will! It’s also widely believed in Palestine (for real) that Jews kill Palestinian kids so they can drink their blood in Jewish rituals).
  • Egypt: Security forces demolish church services building, assault Coptic priests, women, and children (Thousands affected, but you wont hear about it in the lamestream media).
  • FBI to watch mosques for jihad activity — no, wait… (lots of hatred being preached, lots of Saudi money being funneled for jihad, lots of treason being fostered, but we mustn’t look THERE, that would be “insensitive.”).
  • Pakistan’s tribal areas thoroughly infiltrated by al-Qaeda and Taliban (Does anyone care that the Taliban very well might overtake Pakistan, and their nukes)?

I suggest you check it daily. The primary writer for Jihad Watch, Robert Spencer, does a great job of keeping you updated on the jihad against the United States and the whole non-Muslim world. He is very well educated, and all sources are noted. Links at the end of all articles and videos make it easy to read on and make your own conclusions.

For “street level” things  you can do, easily, every day, check out: www.CitizenWarrior.com. And – an easy redirect to remember for curious is www.HaltTerrorism.com.

Here at “Act Seattle for America” our job is to make local tie in’s wherever we can to the news of the day, and give you the tools you need to make wise decisions for yourself and your family, become educated about the stealth jihad in your own backyard, and give you practical things you can do to keep the United States of America free from any form of Islamic tyranny.

It doesn’t have to be, but it will happen if we let it.

 

Here is Geert Wilders’s acceptance speech for the Freedom Award he was given by the Florida Security Council in Miami on April 27:

 

Apart from the Koran, the life of the prophet Muhammad plays a crucial part in Islamic ideology. Muhammad is the model for all Muslims. He was a pedophile, a conqueror and a warlord. In establishing Islam he preached violence and the slaughter of non-Muslims. He took part in 78 battles and slaughtered the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza. Mohammed said, “I have been ordered by Allah to fight against people until they testify that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger.”

 

As the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan once put it, “There is no moderate Islam, Islam is Islam.”

 

Read the whole article on Jihad Watch here.

 

And I just saw this new amazing video on the demographic “takeover” of Muslims. Indeed, both Geert Wilders, and Author Mark Steyn of “America Alone: The End of the World As We Know it” (check it out @ King County Library) (or buy it here) may prove correct: Muslims might just take over  – and force dhimmitude (or death) for all who don’t convert to Islam, and impose sharia law – without firing a shot. It doesn’t take long either. Only about 30 years! You could be under Islam’s hideous thumb in your lifetime! Check it out:

 

 

Indeed they won’t NEED to fire a shot. In a democratic society as ours, majority rules.  Muslims – for now – have so many non-Muslim sympathizers (who don’t understand the supremacist nature of Islam that is in the Qur’an and the Hadiths) that they may takeover and start voting in parts of sharia, piece by piece, with a simple plurality, say 40% of people voting in favor of “Muslim rights.” This has already happened in the United Kingdom. They already have sharia courts. The police already stay out of huge Muslim neighborhoods. They already allow atrocities  – that would land a man in jail for life here – to happen unchecked in these neighborhoods. Their banks already cater to Muslim lending practices (and contribute to Muslim “charities” (who largely support jihad against the West)). And we already have banks that are starting to practice “Sharia compliant financing” here in the US, and of course, if you work with those banks, you are essentially funding a small part of jihad against yourself. There are a thousand steps into Islamic servitude for us, and we welcome each small step in the name of tolerance. But I digress.

 

If you want to read a fascinating (gripping, really) true story on how this plays out, read Brigitte Gabriel’s “Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America.” Again, half.com has it here, and you can check it out from the library here.

 

The idea of course, is when you come to America (or are born into a Muslim family in America), you become American. You don’t isolate yourself and your family, and attempt to change America into Saudi Arabia, or Yemen, or Afghanistan, or Iran. You become American. If you don’t want to assimilate, and take on American values (freedom – even religious freedom, equality, democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of expression) then you should move to a country that squashes these values in the box of the particular politico-religious system you claim to espouse.

 

America welcomes immigrants of all sorts: to become American.

 

But the jihad declared against us is relentless, and our precious freedoms will not last long unless a significant portion of US citizens see the horror of Islam for what it is: evil, violent slavery. Yet we don’t have to let Islam takeover the US, or any other part of the world. But it will require us to stand up for our values. Stand up! In your own way: stand up!

 

If you don’t know how, try www.HaltTerrorism.com . It’s a great place to start. Or leave a comment for me, and I’ll pass on some other suggestions to you. If you need more info (could all this really be true), read about what propels Islam here.

I’ve been reading the Citizen Warrior website again. CW updates about 2x weekly, and is well worth the read. Above all, CW attempts to get inside the mind of devout Muslims, and show that to us Westerners. It is very different from our own way of thinking and living, and we make a mistake if we assume that “all religions are equal” or that “they’re just people like us.” Most of them are not. They make distinct effort to not assimilate, while at the same time verbally praising the freedoms that the United States affords them.

 

Now (I’ve said it before), not every Muslim is a terrorist, but nearly all terrorists are Muslims.

 

Here is a video that’s been posted before on the some of Allah’s dictates, as recorded by Mohammed in the Qur’an.

 

 

An article I wrote last year also compares the Western and Islamic mindsets from my own not so humble opinion in an article called The Difference Between Us And Our Enemies.

 

And CW does a great job (in a long, yet very interesting article) called the Terrifying Brilliance of the Islamic Memeplex. Meme is a funny word which CW explains right up front, and then the rest all falls into place. You have your own meme’s y’know!

 

Most of all stay locally vigilant. Stay aware. Casually bring up issues that tie into the global jihad against us (like the pirates from Somalia: no one ever mentions they are all Muslim, and the ties to the fight Thomas Jefferson had against the (Muslim) Barbary pirates). Forward related articles to friends, and comment (truthfully) on the common critical thinking errors in media-land. Remember, most of our media totes the CAIR PR sheets.

 

OH! CW has another important article, that VERY much pertains to your ability to communicate effectively, and help us all protect our freedoms: “The Struggle To Reach People.  You’re probably dealing with all of those issues, and it’s good for us to talk about how to better communicate the dangers of Islam without being dismissed as “alarmist.”

 

Yet I have experienced THIS bit of hope: The more I talk about it, the better I get at it, the more people want to talk about it, and the more normalized talk about “defending our freedoms from Islam” becomes. When everyone is talking about it (even with opposing views), then we are on the right path because the truth shall set us free.
