Posts Tagged ‘Free Speech’

Recently a disabled US Army vet was stopped by a manager at a Florida skydiving center and asked to cover up his tattoo because another skydiving customer – a Qatari military officer – was offended. The tattoo said in Arabic, “Infidel.”

kafir tattoo

Now it might seem to you that this is no big deal, that we can all just keep the peace and enjoy a great day of skydiving if the US Army vet just covers up his tattoo with a piece of duct tape or clothing. But this is not about keeping the peace.

This is about free speech. Whether the Army vet was asked to leave or left on his own accord to take his business elsewhere is up for speculation, but one thing is NOT: The offended Qatari officer wanted to silence the US Army vet’s free speech, and it worked.

Guy Rodgers, the Executive Director of Act For America, interviewed the skydiving manager after the incident. Here is an excerpt from his article:

I asked the manager if she ever considered going to the Qatari officer and calmly saying something like, “I’m sorry you’re offended, but here in America people say and do things all the time that offend others. And that’s protected speech under our first amendment.”

She said she never talked to the Qatari officer, that “it never got that far.” The reason it didn’t is because the manager’s first—and only—response was to deal with the vet, not talk to the Muslim.

This tiny response is summed up in a line from Henry Ducard in Batman Begins:

Criminals thrive on the indulgence of society’s understanding.

And in Islam it is a crime to insult Islam. In many Islamic countries, you can be jailed for YEARS for insulting Islam or Mohammed. But not here in the United States of America. “Silence, infidel!” is an act of war on our First Amendment rights. We have the right to free speech – the right that secures all other rights – and to cover this up for the sake of “peace” is to subjugate yourself to a religion that professes hundreds of times over in its sacred writings to become dominant to all other religions by any means. I will not be silent, and neither should you.

When it comes to free speech,

I will NOT submit, I will NOT cover up, I will NOT be silent, I will NOT keep the peace,

and neither should YOU!

Stand up for free speech! Liberty will be our reward.

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.

And we just keep letting them do it…

On the GLOBAL front:

Iranian Minister: Israel’s Destruction Is Foretold in the Koran…

We just simply MUST allow these people to have nuclear material for peaceful purposes.

United Kingdom: Islamic Hate Preacher Gets Court Victory

Because we mustn’t judge now, right?

Fox guarding henhouse: Pakistan becomes chair of IAEA board (via JihadWatch)

Pakistan – a “radical” Islamic country that just happens to have nuclear weapons – will now be the head of the UN agency that oversees nukes around the world.

Insult on Islam: Government will Not Keep Quiet

From our “Stop Saying Islam is Violent or We’ll Kill You” or “Speak Up And be Killed” file (Malasia):

Muslims Attack Christian Church in Pakistan: Burn Bibles

… this is retaliation for the Florida Qur’an’s that DIDN’T get burned, but of course, no one around the world has to fear the retaliation of Christians, because Christianity really IS a religion of peace…

And …. On the LOCAL front (sort of):

Radical Islam gets the better of free speech (right here in the US)

A Minneapolis / St. Paul writer wonders why no one in the press is coming to the defense of a Seattle cartoonist when she has to go into hiding because her life is threatened by members of the “the religion of peace.

What can you do? Stand up against ANY form of Sharia law in our land. Insist that your representatives take a REAL stand on national security (including restrictions of Muslim immigration), and tell everyone you know the truth: www.HaltTerrorism.com is a great place to start.

On the Stop The 911 Mosque website has a curious posting, filled with the kind of vitriol that Islam’s prophet Mohammed – “al insal al kamil” (the “perfect man”)  – exhibited in his day. Mohammed personally participated in hundreds of murders (as told in the Qur’an’s companion book, the Hadiths). It’s the duty of every Muslim to pattern their life after Mohammed, who again was “the perfect man.” So here is what this poster said,

My name is Malik Bawwab and I am an Arab Muslim! And we will build our Victory Mosque wherever we want to build it! And there is nothing any of you damn infidels can do about it! We will even build it on top of your grave! You can cry all you want and complain like little babies, but WE OWN YOU!!! And all my Arab brothers and sisters spit on your grave!!!

Sounds like Qur’an 9:123, “Fight the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you.” Harsh, indeed! These words were not from a protestor in New York; This exemplary follower of Mohammed is a student at the University of Washington, was a Mountlake Terrace High School graduate, and is on the Husky Crew Team. (details here). More info on this UW student, and his participation at a UW speaking event here.

I say “exemplary,” because Bawwab is probably following pretty closely to Mohammed. Check out these quotes:

  • “Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.” Qur’an 8:39
  • “So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).” Qur’an 8:39
  • “The Messenger and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah’s Cause.” Qur’an 9:88
  • “Arabs are the most noble people in lineage, the most prominent, and the best in deeds. We were the first to respond to the call of the Prophet. We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us.” – (Hadiths: Tabari IX:69)
  • “O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding.” Qur’an 8:65

Well, I hope by now you are not “devoid of understanding.” There are hundreds more like this. Be aware that the desire to bury the United States, and replace our constitutional republic with sharia law is the desire of Islam. It is an all out war that has been declared on us, and you are a participant whether you like it or not. This war happens on many fronts, and not just terrorists:

  • Those who badger us for concessions to Muslim rites (like a prayer room in NJ public schools)
  • Those Muslims who have 10 children who will further the jihad (struggle against unbelief), to overwhelm us with a Muslim population explosion (this is already happening all over Europe)
  • Those who donate to Muslim front charities that funnel money to terrorist organizations. (Muslims are encouraged to give zakat (tithes) to these organizations.
  • Those who push for sharia-compliant banking (already in effect with some banks in the US).
  • Those who practice Allah-sanctioned taqiyya (deception) by talking “peace” in English among westerners, and then talk about jihad against all things western in Arabic at the mosque.
  • And of course, those Muslims who threaten with death anyone who is critical of Islam (this happens many times daily, and you can check out www.TheReligionOfPeace.com for details on whether they mean it or not).

If you are new to all this talk of “sharia” or “jihad” and you think it’s far from you, you should know: It’s not. There are peaceful Muslims (who don’t read the Qur’an or follow its mandates), but there is NO peaceful Islam. Check this video out (8 minutes that will change your life):

What can you do? Check out www.CitizenWarrior.com for more things you can do to protect our freedoms, and not give in to Islam’s relentless encroachment to make all the world submit … which – by the way – is what the word “Islam” means.

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.
  • Contact the media (radio, TV, blogs) and help them know more.
  • Check out this “what can you do” link (there are LOTS of things you can do, but  – here’s the tease – check out number 9 especially).

First the really important information, thank you Jihad Watch:

Latest updates on the case here. Please contact Gov. Crist and the FL DCF and urge them to ask the court to keep her in Florida state custody. Here’s the contact info:

Governor Charlie Crist’s office:
Phone: (850) 488-4441, (850) 488-7146
Fax: (850) 487-0801

1317 Winewood Blvd.
Building 1, Room 202
Tallahassee, Florida
Phone: (850) 487-1111
Fax: (850) 922-2993

My own letter is below:

Dear Governor Crist,
 
The Rifqa Bary issue has reached a national news level, I’m sure you know.
 
I am writing to encourage you to do what is right for America. Muslim groups are watching closely, as are thousands of young teens like Rifqa who are cowering under Islam’s thumb in their own house. They cower not just over perceived apostasy from Islam, but for fear that any perception that they are Western in any way will bring about an honor killing in their own home.
 
We are the land of the free, and the home of the brave. A brave girl has struggled to escape for her life, and to escape the Islamic prescribed mandate for apostasy – death. It is written clearly in the Islamic Hadiths (“sayings” of Mohammed), and supported in Surah 18 of the Qur’an. All four major schools of Islamic thought agree on this prescribed death sentence, it is not up for discussion, though Muslim groups in the US and abroad would have you believe otherwise…
 
Because her parent’s lawyers and CAIR are putting a spin on it that is in accordance with Islamic teaching as well:
*  “Kitman,” which means “withholding all of the truth (to advance Islam)” and
*  “Taqiyya,” which means deception against an enemy (in this case, you and our infidel laws).
The Qur’an condones lying and deception as long as it advances Islam.
 
If you buy into it, you will likely be sending this young girl to her death, or at least to an insane asylum in Sri Lanka. That would be a tragedy of epic proportions.
 
This is also the land of the free. Rifqa is now free, and in her heart she will always be free (in Christ), but she won’t physically free – or safe – if you return her into the hands of Islam.
 
Please do all you can to guarantee her safety, and keep her in Florida.
 
Sincerely,
Paul Revere
