TEL AVIV – Turkey is facilitating the transport of thousands more Islamist militants into Syria for what the Turkish military believes is a final round of confrontations against Bashar Assad’s embattled regime, a senior Syrian official has charged.

The Syrian official, speaking to WND on condition his name be withheld, claimed the U.S. and NATO are fully aware of Turkey’s movement of more jihadists into Syria to fight for the so-called rebels under the banner of the Free Syrian Army.

The official further denied foreign media claims that Assad is thinking of stepping down, calling the reports “baseless.”

Reports of jihadists comprising the Syrian opposition, including the U.S.-supported Free Syrian Army, are not new. There have been scores of reports worldwide that al-Qaida and other jihad groups are among the Free Syrian Army ranks. It is well established that jihadists dominate the Syrian opposition and various Free Syrian Army branches.

Furthermore, WND reported last week how the lawyer now raising money in the U.S. to fund the Free Syrian Army previously served as director of Muslim outreach for President Obama’s 2008 campaign.

Mazen Asbahi, a Chicago lawyer, resigned from Obama’s first presidential campaign after the Wall Street Journal reported that he sat on the board of an Islamic investment group called the Allied Assets Advisors Fund. Also on the board was Jamal Said, an unindicted co-conspirator in the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation, the Texas-based group that raised millions of dollars for the Hamas terrorist organization.

The Allied Assets Advisors Fund was itself a subsidiary of the North American Islamic Trust, which is directed by the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA.

ISNA was established in 1981 by activists from the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Muslim Students Association. ISNA was also named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terrorism financing case and was the subject of a terrorism investigation in December 2003 by the Senate Finance Committee, which looked into possible links between nongovernmental organizations and terrorist financing networks.

Now Asbahi is back in the spotlight as the lawyer for the Syrian Support Group, which is raising money to fund the rebels attacking Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

Earlier this year, Asbahi applied to the U.S. government for a license to fund the Free Syrian Army.

Asbahi’s Syrian Support Group boasted on its website that it received “a license from the U.S. Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control that permits the organization to raise funds and provide certain services to the Free Syrian Army.”

The group says it is raising funds in the U.S. to provide “certain logistical, communications and other services to the [Free Syrian Army].” It defines the Army as “a coalition of affiliated armed rebel groups operating in Syria.”

Brian Sayers, director of government relations for the Syrian Support Group, admitted in an NPR interview that the money raised by his organization will go to weapons purchases as well.

“Yes,” he said when asked about weapons. “Weapons are going to be a part of the process, because if they’re going to set up safe zones for the Syrian citizens … those safe zones have to be defended.”

The Syrian Support Group addresses concerns on its website about whether some of the money it raises will go to al-Qaida organizations fighting with the Free Syrian Army: “SSG acknowledges reports of increasing al-Qaeda and other extremist activity within Syria. SSG hopes to serve as a counterweight to this development and will only provide financial support to military councils who have adopted the Free Syrian Army’s Proclamation of Principles.”

The proclamation outlines the FSA’s commitment to a democratic Syria and also to “fight if necessary to end the tyranny and dictatorship of the Assad regime.”

The Free Syrian Army received a major diplomatic boost last week when Obama recognized the affiliated leading Syrian opposition coalition as the legitimate representative of Syria in the place of Assad’s regime.

Alabama: Muslim accused of plotting act of jihad terror against U.S. pleads not guilty, says he only bought ticket to Morocco to study Islam

Alabama: Muslim accused of plotting act of jihad terror against U.S.
pleads not guilty, says he only bought ticket to Morocco to study Islam

 RasheedWilson.jpg
Hey, he just wanted to study Islam

But he was apparently planning not to stay in Morocco, but to go on to Mauritania, where the Islam is served straight and undiluted, slavery is legal, and it’s just a short trip to the hot jihad waging in Mali.

“Alabama Muslim arrested for attempting to flee to Morocco,” from RT.com, December 27:

A 25-year-old resident of Mobile, Alabama says he was not trying to plot with terrorists overseas when he bought a plane ticket for him and his family to visit Morocco.Randy Lamar “Rasheed” Wilson was denied bail over the weekend, and on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to charges of providing support to international terrorists.

Federal investigators say Wilson, who grew up in the United States, intended on meeting up with fellow Muslims in Morocco in order to plot an act of terror against the United States. His attorneys are adamant about having the charges dropped, however, since they say they are based off of testimonies provided to undercover informants and contain no proof that Wilson intended on committing an act of terror. For the meantime, though, it is likely to be an uphill battle since the government is opposed to unsealing their alleged evidence against Wilson, claiming doing such would endanger national security.

“We are going to fight this all the way,” lawyer Domingo Soto told the Associated Press. “We are going to fight the detention, the indictment and the protective order.”

In response to his plea, US Magistrate Judge Katherine Nelson has set a tentative trial date of March 3, but cautions that it could be a long ordeal given the unusual circumstances of the case.

“This is obviously the first one of these cases I’ve handled and maybe the first we’ve had here in this district,” Nelson on Wednesday.

But it probably won’t be the last.

The government says Wilson has ties to Omar Hammami, who also at one point resided near Mobile, but later moved to Somalia to join forces with alleged terrorists al-Shabab.In Mobile on Wednesday, Wilson’s attorney said his client only wanted to take his family to Morocco so that they could study Muslim [sic] in a country where Islam is the dominant religion.

This argument could only possibly fly with those who are ignorant of Islamic teaching regarding jihad.

UN-MERRY CHRISTMAS TO CHRISTIANS FROM ISLAM

Un-merry Christmas to Christians from Islam

Is Islam tolerant of Christianity? Muslims say yes, but what are the facts?

Mullahs around the world warn Muslims not to respond to the words ‘Merry Christmas’. If Jesus is the ‘prince of peace’, it makes Mohammed look bad. In the last years of his life, Mohammed led and commanded violent aggression every six weeks. Mohammed was the ‘prince of jihad’.

Muslims believe angels announced the birth of Jesus, but Muslims do not believe the Gospel where the angels said, “Peace on earth.” Peace with Kafirs is not possible. The Christmas greeting to Christians around the world is still the same as it was in 630 AD: “Aslim, Taslam!” (Surrender to Islam and be safe). Where Christians do not surrender to Islamic terrorists, their lives are now in danger.

For the Muslim, the world cannot be at peace until every government on earth follows the laws of Allah. The duty of Muslims is to create the conditions that drive non-Muslims into the arms of Sharia law, ‘whether by persuasion or by force’ as ibn Khaldun wrote.

If Christians won’t voluntarily change their laws to Shari’a, then it is the duty of every Muslim to induce Christians in three ways: violence, extortion or enslavement.

Muslims around the world are particularly aware of Christianity at Christmas time when they become even more determined to impose Sharia. This leads to jihad attacks in churches in Egypt, Pakistan, Nigeria and Indonesia. Attacking worshipping Christians is jihad. The purpose is to discourage them from their non-Islamic worship. In Nigerian churches, most women have been asked not to bring a purse and armed guards stand at the door with metal detectors to screen every worshipper. This is because jihadists are taught in the hadiths to lull enemies of Allah into trust before betraying them. Every person entering a church might be a jihadist.

The purpose of jihad is to implement discriminatory Sharia. Sharia is not benign to Christians.

The purpose of Sharia is to destroy Christian and other cultures and replace them with theocratic totalitarianism. Jihad is the method for imposing Sharia. Jihad is aggressive: it can take the form of deception or disinformation, robbery, lawsuits or it can be violent with the destruction of property or assassination of church leaders. All jihad is good because it is Mohammed’s sacred method.

Since 1990 in Nigeria, some 1000 Christians have been murdered by jihadists every year. Probably, the number is much higher with many jihad-motivated murders being put down as ordinary homicides or accidental manslaughters. Most of the jihad murders take place in northern Nigeria where Islamist want to impose Sharia law.

Nigeria has one of the highest scholarship rates in Africa. As Nigerians gain graduate and post-graduate degrees, they often leave Islam and switch to Christianity which they identified with Western progress. Islamists see going to university as the problem. Better to stay at home, memorize the Koran and remain loyal to Mohammed, the perfect man, than to learn to improve society, build infrastructure, services, health sciences or engineering in the country.

Boko Haram (meaning ‘Western education is taboo’) is the main Islamic terror group fighting the rapid Christianization of Nigeria. They are now allied with Al Qaeda. Their trademark is to attack congregation while they are worshipping or throw bombs into restaurants where Christians eat after services. This is ethnic cleansing and genocide. Mohammed ethnically cleansed the Jewish tribes in Arabia, so it is normative Islam. Boko Haram wants to ethnically cleanse Christians from northern Nigeria. Mohammed’s ethnic cleansing method goes like this: intimidate, humiliate and expropriate until you can annihilate.

Most of the countries that are now Islamic were once Christian. The Christian presence in Turkey is almost nil, and in most of North Africa it is tiny, but it was once close to 100% in all of them. What changed things was Sharia law. Under discriminatory Sharia law, Christians must live in an inferior social status to Muslims, they must wear clothing that humiliates them, they must never ride on a horse, they must pay a punitive tax, they must never speak about Islam or the Koran, they must never ring their church’s bell, they must never have an outdoor religious ceremony or speak to a Muslim about Christianity, they must move aside when a Muslim walks down the street. As well, no new churches may be built and old ones may never be repaired unless hefty bribes are given to the authorities. The policy of Sharia is to systemically make life difficult for Christians to practice their faith, all the while encouraging them to convert.

Then there is the ‘love jihad’. Mohammed started this with the comment ‘marry one woman (out of four wives) for the religion’. Muslim men have taken this as a commandment to abduct a Christian girl, confine her and then declare her to be married without her consent. The girl’s family is then told she has converted to Islam and they may never see her. Police do nothing, because it’s Sharia and Sharia trumps any man-made law. No one can estimate how many Christian girls have been abducted and sequestered in the ‘love jihad’, but the fact that many African Christians tattoo a cross on the forehead and cheeks of their girls speaks volumes.

The reason Christians were not substantially cleansed from Islamic countries until the Turkish genocides of 1915-1924 is because Christians were used for a supply of jizzya [dhimmi tax] and they were very useful in medicine, the arts, building and garbage removal. Turkey ethnically cleansed three million Armenian, Assyrian and Greek Christians to confiscate their wealth and properties for a government at war that was strapped for ready cash. The Young Turks were also jihadists hoping to make Turkey the capital of a global caliphate promoting Sharia law. Discriminatory Sharia law is like a ratchet that only tightens a bolt even though it apparently moves back and forwards. Sharia only benefits Islam.

So when Americans hear the church bells ring on Christmas Eve, remember that Christians worshipping in Islamic regions like northern Nigeria may hear the sound of bombs thrown in the church door, guns shooting down the main aisle or the sound of fire on the church roof.

Merry Christmas.

Obsession (Movie) Radical Islams War Against the West

Radical Islam Documentary

Obsession Radical Islams War Against the West

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AediQLpoGGM

Obsession – Radical Islam’s War Against the West is a new documentary film that will challenge the way you look at the world. The is the full version of Obsession the movie.

Almost 70 years ago, Europe found itself at war with one of the most sinister figures in modern history: Adolf Hitler. When the last bullet of World War II was fired, over 50 million people were dead, and countless countries were both physically and economically devastated. Hitlers bloody struggle sought to forge the world anew, in the crucible of Nazi values. How could such a disaster occur? How could the West have overlooked the evil staring it in the face, for so long, before standing forcefully against it?

Today, we find ourselves confronted by a new enemy, also engaged in a violent struggle to transform our world. As we sleep in the comfort of our homes, a new evil rises against us. A new menace is threatening, with all the means at its disposal, to bow Western Civilization under the yoke of its values. That enemy is Radical Islam.

Using images from Arab TV, rarely seen in the West, Obsession reveals an insider’s view’ of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. With the help of experts, including first-hand accounts from a former PLO terrorist, a Nazi youth commander, and the daughter of a martyred guerilla leader, the film shows, clearly, that the threat of Radical Islam is real.

Islam is being hijacked by radical extremists, who actively seek to destroy the shared values we stand for. The world should be very concerned.

This is a documentary film about Radical Islamic terror. A dangerous ideology, fuelled by religious hatred. It’s important to remember, most Muslims are peaceful and do not support terror. This is not a film about them.

U.S. Facilitating Muslim Brotherhood’s Extremist Agenda

Published on #1 News Site on the Threat of Radical Islam (http://www.radicalislam.org)


U.S. Facilitating Muslim Brotherhood’s Extremist Agenda

  First the U.S. allowed itself to be gulled into co-sponsoring an international “Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF)” together with Turkey that deliberately excluded Israel. Now, at the most recent GCTF conference, held December 14, 2012 in Abu Dhabi, the Muslim Brotherhood has succeeded in getting the U.S. to lend its name – and its taxpayers’ money – to the so-called “International Centre of Excellence for Countering Violent Extremism.”

In this context, the only officially permitted “violent extremists” are al-Qa’eda and only al-Qa’eda. “Violent Extremism” does not include, for instance, HAMAS, Hizballah, the Muslim Brotherhood or the Taliban, all of which espouse the exact same ideology and goals as al-Qa’eda.

The GCTF, which comprises 30 members (including the U.S. and the European Union, but not Israel), bills itself as “an informal, multilateral counterterrorism (CT) platform that focuses on identifying critical civilian CT needs, mobilizing the necessary expertise and resources to address such needs and enhance global cooperation.”

One third of its members are Muslim countries, including some of those most often identified as sources of funding for jihadist organizations such as al-Qa’eda, Ansar al-Shariah and the Muslim Brotherhood. Its Plan of Action on Victims of Terrorism, developed at a July 2012 conference in Madrid, is suitably bland and, naturally, makes no mention of either Islamic terrorism (which is responsible for the vast majority of victims of terrorism), or of Jews and Israelis, who often are the target of such terrorism.

The GCTF’s ominously named “Cairo Declaration on Counterterrorism and the Rule of Law” was adopted September 22, 2011 and spawned the GCTF Criminal Justice and Rule of Law Working Group, which is co-chaired by Egypt and the U.S. At the time of the group’s inaugural meeting (held November 3-4, 2011 in Washington, D.C.), it will be recalled that Egypt had recently installed a Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi, who is pledged to the global imposition and enforcement of Islamic law (sharia).

Further, Egypt, as well as the other nine GCTF Islamic member countries, is also a signatory to the 1990 Cairo Declaration, which rejected the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and declared that the only human rights Islamic members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) recognize are those allowed by the sharia. Egypt is also the co-sponsor, together with the U.S., of UN Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18, which calls on Western governments to criminalize “any advocacy of religious hatred against individuals that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence,” which is, in fact, a thinly disguised assault on the U.S.’s First Amendment free speech rights.

Hard on the heels of the Muslim Brotherhood’s blitzkrieg takeover of Egypt, the sharia-adherent Egyptian judiciary has wasted no time in moving to suppress criticism of Islam, both at home and abroad. Even before the new sharia-elevating constitution’s late December 2012 referendum, an Egyptian blogger was convicted for blasphemy and “contempt of religion” and the conviction of a Coptic Christian was upheld for “insulting the prophet” by pointing out that Muhammad had more than four wives (which is amply documented in both the Sira and ahadith). Not content to crush free speech only at home, in November 2012, an Egyptian court sentenced seven people, including an American citizen, to death on blasphemy charges for their involvement in the online video, “Innocence of Muslims.”

To date, there has been no official statement from the U.S. State Department on exactly how it intends to work on ‘Criminal Justice and Rule of Law” with a sharia champion GCTF co-chair like Egypt and reconcile that with its Constitutional obligations to the American people.

Set against this OIC/Muslim Brotherhood backdrop, then, the U.S.-funded establishment of the GCTF “International Centre of Excellence for Countering Violent Extremism” in Abu Dhabi further institutionalizes the global campaign to suppress free speech about Islam.

The term “Countering Violent Extremism” was first conjured up inside the Muslim Brotherhood-influenced Advisory Council of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as a way to avoid having to talk about the Islamic roots of Islamic terrorism.

In February 2010, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano tasked the Advisory Council to conduct outreach to “relevant community groups” (including affiliates, associates and members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood) to develop recommendations about combating “violent extremism” domestically.

Thus was formed the Brotherhood-influenced “Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Working Group.” Among the CVE Working Group members is Imam Mohamed Magid, President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), listed by the Muslim Brotherhood itself as one of its affiliates in the Brotherhood’s 1991 “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.

In lockstep with the National Counterterrorism Center’s 2008 “Words That Work and Words That Don’t,” the DHS’s own 2009 “Domestic Extremism Lexicon” and the Obama White House’s omission of “Islam” and “jihad” from the 2010 National Security Strategy document, it is hardly surprising that the DHS CVE Working Group likewise performed linguistic gymnastics to avoid mention of the one category of terrorism that has killed more Americans – and more human beings, including fellow Muslims – than any other in the history of the world: Islamic terrorism.

Deliberate deceit and dissimulation as practiced by the Muslim Brotherhood and other jihadist organizations regarding the truth about the roots of Islamic terrorism in Islamic doctrine, law and scripture is called taqiyya. When taqiyya is swallowed hook, line and sinker by infidel governments, it is called a successful influence operation.

Now, the U.S. government itself is becoming an agent of influence for the Brotherhood, as it helps to establish the “International Centre of Excellence for Countering Violent Extremism.”

‘Tea party’ group fights for Islamic causes Claims it must rescue movement from ‘evangelical, conservative Jewish bloc’

Claims it must rescue movement from ‘evangelical, conservative Jewish bloc’

Far from being the lock-step GOP ground troop some in the media have suggested it is, the tea-party movement includes people of many different ideologies … but this element is most unusual.

WND has discovered a Muslim activist organization that claims to be working from within the tea party to counter the movement’s “Islamophobia.”

The group Muslims4Liberty, however, also decries American “greatness,” accuses the U.S. of “war crimes,” espouses seemingly anti-Israel ideology and slams the “evangelical and conservative Jewish bloc” of the Republican party.

The radical left Center for American Progress, or CAP, actually promotes Muslims4Liberty as a small organization of supposed tea-party activists “fighting against the right wing’s Islamophobia,” according to a CAP description.

Think Progress, the CAP’s official blog, noted how Illume Magazine documented the efforts of Will Coley, a self-proclaimed Tea Party member and Islam convert who co-founded Muslims4Liberty to confront “anti-Islam activists head on.”

Illume quotes Coley describing how he started going to tea-party events in Florida in 2009 but was concerned about the emergence of “Islamophobia” in the movement.

“I was watching the neocon takeover happen,” said Coley. “Literally overnight I saw groups devoted to economics and constitutional limits turn into something else. Suddenly there were invites to see anti-Islam speakers. This crazy anti-Islam message was taking over.”

After moving to Tennessee, Coley said he began outreach to local tea-party groups to explain how Islam and Shariah Islamic law is compatible with tea-party principles.

Illume reports that after speaking with 14 tea-party chapters about Shariah, 12 agreed to reject so-called anti-Muslim appeals.

The chapters even supported a petition opposing a proposed “Shariah ban” in Tennessee.

Tea Party aligned with Shariah?

Coley gave lectures to tea-party chapters purporting to explain how Shariah promotes liberty.

Stated Coley: “We use principles within Shariah like maqasid (primary goals) to show their connection with John Locke’s principles of life, liberty and property.”

Shariah law, however, has often been decried as incompatible with the values of liberty or democracy.

The doctrine, for example, does not allow Muslims to be ruled by non-Muslims and calls for a special “protection” tax against all non-Muslims.

Furthermore, it dictates non-Muslims living in an Islamic state cannot build new churches or synagogues. Muslims who kill non-Muslims do not get the death penalty.

Multiple other aspects of Shariah, including its view of non-Muslims as unequal or its treatment of women and minorities, are arguably incompatible with constitutional principals as well.

‘Religious bloc destroying GOP’

Views espoused by Coley and his group on its website would similarly distance Muslims4Liberty from the views of many tea partiers.

One posting by Coley, entitled, “Dear Religious Right,” slams the GOP’s “evangelical and conservative Jewish block [sic]” as destroying the GOP.

He defined this supposed bloc as “a portion of our country that wants to legislate its own moral views on the rest of us and outlaw or stifle the rights of other religious traditions in the name of ‘patriotism’ or ‘national security.’”

Coley blamed this religious bloc for contributing to Romney’s loss in the November elections.

He added: “The GOP can trace it’s dwindling numbers directly to the amount of influence your message has had over the party. The more influence radical religious nativists hold over the party, the less the GOP message appealed to voters.”

Coley’s posting was replete with a derogatory, photo-shopped picture of tea-party favorite Sarah Palin draped in an American flag and holding a cross.

American ‘war crimes;’ No U.S. ‘greatness’

Another Muslims4Liberty posting tea partiers may find offensive contains an image of the U.S. flag with text that reads: “War Crimes Alert! There is no flag big enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people! Ever!”

The posting, titled, “American Supremacy Disorder,” decries any notion of U.S. “greatness.”

Muslims4Liberty member Ramny Osman complains, “The whole idea of ‘American greatness,’ ‘America the world super power’ or ‘American supremacy’ is a problem in itself.”

“I’m not going to deny that there are great things in America, or deny that great things have been accomplished by Americans,” Osman states. “But I do challenge the idea that we Americans have exclusive claim to great things.”

Osman mockingly provided a list of “10 symptoms” of those who suffer from a “disorder” that see American “greatness.”

The list is as follows:

  1. They repeatedly recite the self-delusion mantra: “We’re the greatest country in the world!”;
  2. They complain about local inequality while insisting on a sense of entitlement that causes global inequality;
  3. They justify or are indifferent to American sponsored coups, assassinations, and sabotage around the world;
  4. They support bombing and occupying countries that never attacked us (i.e. there were no Iraqis or Afghanis part of the 9-11 attacks);
  5. They think that the only 9-11 in history happened in 2001 (On 9-11-1973, America sponsored a coup in Chile that killed their democratically elected president);
  6. They view half a million children who died in Iraq due to American imposed sanctions to be collateral damage that was worth it;
  7. They don’t consider Muslim civilians killed by American bombs and bullets as innocent;
  8. They confuse America’s interests with Israel’s interests to the point that any criticism of Israel (or mention of Palestinian suffering) is considered anti-Semitic and unpatriotic;
  9. They think that the people who hate us and attack us do so because of our “freedoms” (which is code word for ‘world supremacy’);
  10. They say if you oppose the Patriot Act then you’re unpatriotic.

The website is also replete with seemingly anti-Israel language, including text that refers to the West Bank as “the occupied West Bank,” even though the United Nations itself only calls the area, home to biblical Jewish communities, “disputed.” The site calls for all aid to be cut off to Israel as well as to other foreign countries.

NEW ARMY MANUAL ORDERS SOLDIERS NOT TO CRITICIZE TALIBAN, PEDOPHILIA, “ANYTHING RELATED TO ISLAM” OR “ADVOCATE FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS”

New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban, pedophilia, “anything related to Islam” or “advocate for women’s rights”

The new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other Islamic things.

Mass beheadings, gendercide, gassing of girls’ schools, mass slaughter of non-believers and less than devout Muslims, attacks on US soldiers, acid attacks on women, brutal burka enforcement ….. must not be criticzed. So speaketh the caliph in the White House. He is stalking these anti-humans for peace, after all.

Bloody hell, bring our boys home. Now.

New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban

December 11, 2012 | Judicial Watch

Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things.

It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.

The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an article that should infuriate the American taxpayers funding the never-ending war on terror. The manual is being created because someone with authority bought the theory that cultural insensitivity is driving insider attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

More than three dozen insider attacks have killed 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year, according to the article, and some blame “American cultural ignorance.” The bottom line is that troops may experience social-cultural shock and/or discomfort when interacting with Afghan security forces, the new military handbook says. “Better situational awareness/understanding of Afghan culture will help better prepare [troops] to more effectively partner and to avoid cultural conflict that can lead toward green-on-blue violence.”

The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”

At least one high-ranking military official had the backbone to publicly criticize the new manual, albeit through a spokesperson. U.S. Marine General John Allen, the top commander in Afghanistan, doesn’t endorse it and rejected a proposed forward drafted by Army officials in his name. “He does not approve of its contents,” according to a military spokesman quoted in the story.

Earlier this year the Obama Administration changed the way federal agents are trained to combat terrorism and violent extremism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims. Under White House orders, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism in a government-wide call to end Islamophobia.

Under Obama practically every major federal agency has been ordered to participate in Muslim outreach initiatives, including the Justice Department with a special program to protect Islamic civil rights, Homeland Security meetings with extremist Muslim organizations and the nation’s space agency (NASA) with an unprecedented mission to focus on Muslim diplomacy.

Additionally, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S. and the administration sent an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission. The Obama Administration even ordered a government-funded meal program for home-bound seniors to offer halal cuisine prepared according to Islamic law.

Judge AWOL on forced Islamic-worship attendance

Question of rights violations ‘need not be decided here’

A federal judge in Oklahoma has avoided making a determination on whether a police department order for officers to attend an Islamic event violated the constitutional religious rights of the officers.

In a 16-page opinion, Gregory Frizzell said no “reasonable jury” could have found Capt. Paul Fields “was personally ordered to attend” a Muslim mosque event.

The judge argued that Fields could have assigned someone else to attend instead of going himself.

The judge avoided the core First Amendment issues in the Tulsa dispute, stating, “The issue of whether a directive requiring his personal attendance at the event would have violated his First Amendment rights need not be decided here.”

In the case, spotlighted as an example of “creeping Shariah” in the United States, attorneys for Fields have explained that the officer was ordered to attend or have someone attend an event Muslims admitted was a religious service.

The complaint is against Tulsa Chief Charles Jordan and Deputy Chief Alvin Webster.

Fields sued when he was punished with a two-week unpaid suspension and a demotion for refusing department orders to attend an event at an Islamic mosque in which officers observed Islamic worship services, heard an explanation of Islamic beliefs and were proselytized.

As a Christian, Fields believed the order violated his rights to freely exercise his own faith, but the department determined he was refusing a lawful order and punished him.

The American Freedom Law Center has been representing Fields.

The Frizzell ruling said Jordan and Webster didn’t violate Fields’ constitutional rights because he could have avoided the order to attend the religious event by ordering someone else to go.

Robert Muise, senior counsel for the AFLC, said the ruling is “troubling on many levels” but vowed “this fight is far from over.”


Capt. Paul Fields

“Judge Frizzell may have been the first judge to review and decide the important constitutional issues at stake in this case, but he won’t be the last,” he said.

“We will be appealing this ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.”

The dispute arose in January 2011 when the Islamic Society of Tulsa announced a “law enforcement appreciation day” at its mosque. Mosque officials admitted they deliberately set it up on a Friday so that there would be religious services for the officers to attend.

At first, the event was promoted within the police department as voluntary, but then Webster directed by email that attendance was mandatory.

AFLC reported the email was forwarded to Fields by his supervisor, Julie Harris, and stated, “We are directed by [Webster] to have representatives from each shift – 2nd, 3rd and 4th to attend [the Islamic services].”

Fields said he thought the order would violate his constitutional rights, and he received permission to raise objections and concerns.

With Harris’ permission, Fields responded that he believed the order was unlawful as it conflicted with his religious convictions, but Webster told him to reconsider or face “consequences.”

Webster then transferred Fields to a lower position and ordered him to be investigated by internal affairs.

“The very next day, the Islamic event was made voluntary for Capt. Fields’ former shift,” AFLC reported.

Still, Webster pursued the investigation, telling Fields: “You are hereby notified that Chief Chuck Jordan has requested IA to conduct an administration investigation in regards to your refusal to attend and refusal to assign officers from your shift, who shared your religious beliefs, to attend the ‘Law Enforcement Appreciation Day’ [at the Muslim mosque] on March 4, 2011.”

Officials punished Fields with a two-week unpaid suspension and made his punitive transfer permanent.

AFLC said Jordan testified, “I can’t have a police department where everybody refuses to give – to interact with Muslims because they say it’s their religious reasons.”

Muise said that contrary to the judge’s ruling in the case, “the evidence is undisputed and overwhelming that Capt. Fields was punished for merely raising a religious objection to the mandatory order, and this included punishing him for refusing to attend the Islamic proselytizing event based on his sincerely held religious convictions.”

“In short, the judge simply got it wrong,” Muise said.

AFLC reported the sworn testimony in the case reveals during the Islamic services “the Muslim hosts discussed Islamic religious beliefs; they discussed Mohammad, Mecca, why Muslims pray, how they pray, and what they say when they are praying; they showed the officers a Quran; and they showed the officers Islamic religious books and pamphlets that were for sale and encouraged the officers to purchase them. Consequently, Capt. Fields’ objections were completely justified and substantiated.”

Muise said it was a tragedy that the city decided to “publicly vilify” Fields by “falsely claiming that his religious objections were motivated by anti-Muslim sentiments.

“The bitter irony is that Capt. Fields was one of the primary officers involved with helping to protect this mosque from a criminal suspect intent on doing harm, and it was this very incident that served as the justification for the ‘appreciation’ event,” Muise said.

Court documents revealed Harris “candidly admitted during her sworn testimony that the police department retaliated against [Fields] for exercising his constitutional rights.”

She told the department’s internal affairs investigation looking into Fields’ actions, “If somebody had some deep, deep, deep religious conviction, and as long as there was no crime that they needed to investigate, there’s no need for me to force this (Islamic mosque attendance) on anybody.”

She concluded that the charges against Fields should not be sustained, according to the brief, and later “was subjected to retaliation” herself because of her statement.

The brief said that during depositions in the dispute, Harris was asked, “Do you believe the department took adverse action against [Fields] for exercising his rights?”

“Yes,” she responded.

She also was asked, “If you believe Capt. Fields had a deeply held religious conviction opposing that order, [then] he would have a right to oppose that order based on that conviction?”

Again, she responded, “Yes.”

The Tulsa Islamic organization has featured speakers such as Imam Siraj Wahhaj, “a Shariah-adherent Muslim who promotes the destruction of Western civilization and the creation of an Islamic caliphate,” according to the lawsuit.

Texas teaching ‘Allah is the Almighty God’

Curriculum under fire for radical ideas, secrecy

In the 70 percent of Texas public schools where a private curriculum has been installed, students are learning the “fact” that “Allah is the Almighty God,” charge critics of a new online curriculum that already is facing condemnation for its secrecy and restrictions on oversight.

The program, called CSCOPE, is a private venture operating under the umbrella of the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative, whose incorporation documents state its independence from the State Board of Education of the Texas Education Agency.

Other reports previously have raised alarm over the curriculum’s depiction of the Boston Tea Party as a terrorist act on par with the 9/11 attack.

According to documentation that has leaked out, the program describes the Boston Tea Party this way: “A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port. Although no one was injured in the attack, a large quantity of merchandise, considered to be valuable to its owners and loathsome to the perpetrators, was destroyed. The terrorists, dressed in disguise and apparently intoxicated, were able to escape into the night with the help of local citizens who harbor these fugitives and conceal their identities from the authorities. It is believed that the terrorist attack was a response to the policies enacted by the occupying country’s government. Even stronger policies are anticipated by the local citizens.”

There also have been reports that the curriculum – contrary to recent Supreme Court rulings – says the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the right to bear arms, is limited to state-run organizations.

“The collective right’s advocates believed that the Second Amendment did not apply to individuals; rather it recognized the right of a state to arm its militia. It recognized limited individual rights only when it was exercised by members of a functioning, organized militia while actively participating in the militia’s activities.”

Now come concerns about what critics describe as a definitively pro-Islam bias.

The critics say the studies border on proselytizing.

In one scenario, students are asked to study the tenets of Islam, and critics say the materials provided exceed impartial review of another faith, extending into requirements of conversion and moral imperatives.

A computer presentation utilized as part of a study of Islam includes information on how to convert, as well as verses denigrating other faiths.

According to excerpts, under the heading, “Who Is Allah?,” students are told:

“Allah is the Almighty God.”

“Allah alone is the Creator. He alone deserves our devout love and worship.”

Muhammad is described as having become “disillusioned with the corruption in the city and the growing gap between the urban dwellers and the Bedouins (nomadic herders).”

But there is no mention of his documented sex activities with a child or his penchant for beheading entire indigenous people groups.

CSCOPE’s geography curriculum also is being scrutinized.

A high school question on a geography test asks, “Which of the following has been a benefit of globalization?” Possible answers are as follows: a) pandemics, b) increased standard of living, c) loss of local culture, and finally, d) widespread environmental impacts.

The only “correct” answer accepted in the context of the test is “an increased standard of living.”

WND recently reported the Texas State Board of Education was hearing concerns expressed by parents.

The debate carries national significance because of the influence Texas has on textbook and curriculum publishers as the only state that adopts uniform standards.

CSCOPE advocates say that the volume of information to which students now have access outside the classroom necessitates the move away from textbooks.

“If they’re sitting in a classroom with a textbook, that’s not the world anymore,” said Anne Poplin, Education Service Center Region 9 executive director.

“We’re moving to Bring Your Own Devices. It’s a disadvantage (for children) not to have access to their devices. It’s not a textbook-driven environment. If it is, they’re behind,” Poplin said.

An estimated 70 percent of Texas schools already are involved in the program.

But one of the concerns is that state law requires textbooks to be reviewed by the board of education, and parents are allowed to have access, since CSCOPE is considered a private venture it operates independently of state or local school board oversight.

The state attorney general’s office has ruled that CSCOPE is a government organization subject to requirements of transparency, but because of loopholes in the Texas Public Information Act and Senate Bill 6, passed in 2011, CSCOPE has thus far been able to keep its content from public review. Even parents are denied access.

Kimberly Thomas, a teacher in the Lubbock school district, calls CSCOPE a “joke,” identifying a ninth-grade lesson that asks students to circle capital letters in a sentence.

Her department was rated exemplary by the state prior to the installation of CSCOPE. As Thomas notes, CSCOPE “forces our own department to undo the proven, successful curriculum we have developed that gave us an exemplary rating.”

Just days ago, Thomas Ratliff, a member of the state board and supporter of CSCOPE, said CSCOPE was “supplemental” and that textbooks still are being used.

“CSCOPE is not designed to eliminate textbooks or other instructional materials. It is designed to complement them for the benefit of the teacher and the student,” he wrote in a prepared statement.

CSCOPE employees, on the other hand, claim the software is designed to replace textbooks and, indeed, has in many Texas school districts.

Addressing the issue of the program’s secrecy, Ratliff slammed critics who say they want government to be “run like a business” but then get upset when that happens.

But critics argue private schools, the closest thing to a school being run like a business, still make instructional materials available to parents, something that CSCOPE refuses to do.

The “parent portal” provided on the public portion of CSCOPE’s website has not allayed critics’ concerns. Some of the lessons leaked to the public have contained wide disparities from the summary pages viewable in the public section of CSCOPE’s website.

Ratliff defends this dichotomy by saying that, like iTunes or any other “business,” some things must be placed behind a “pay wall” as part of a business plan. Ratliff claims that CSCOPE is created by “teachers, for teachers.”

But teachers must sign a gag order when required to use CSCOPE in their classrooms.

Complicating the issue is the fact that school districts usually purchase CSCOPE with state tax dollars.

While Ratliff calls the curriculum “instructional material” he said state oversight wouldn’t help, and “I would much rather have 7,000 locally elected school board members decide what content is best for their students, not the 15-member SBOE. Allowing CSCOPE to be developed and implemented at the local level is the ‘local control’ Texans say we want. Injecting SBOE oversight into this would shift us into a ‘controlling the locals’ approach.”

Critics say that’s not the way the system is set up, and CSCOPE actually ends local input since it prevents, on penalty of copyright litigation, distribution of its content to parents.

A vocal critic has been Texas State Rep. Debbie Riddle, a Republican.

“I did pretty well with textbooks. Benjamin Franklin did pretty well with textbooks. Are they going to say reading books is not effective? Should we all stop reading our Bibles?

“Call me old-fashioned, but there is something about the feel, smell, holding a book; there is a lot to be said for holding a hard copy,” she said.

Separately but in a related issue, Attorney General Greg Abbott has released an opinion that is being is being quoted by critics as disqualifying Ratliff from the state board because of his connections to companies doing business with schools in Texas.

Gingrich: Obama Doesn’t Realize Radical Islam Is at War With US

Gingrich: Obama Doesn’t Realize Radical Islam Is at War With US

President Barack Obama is so wedded to his liberal policies that he can’t comprehend the meaning of the attacks against us in Libya and Egypt — radical Islam is at war with us, says former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

The president and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the “senseless” violence, he notes on Politico.

“This concept of ‘senseless violence’ is at the heart of the left’s refusal to confront the reality of radical Islamists,” the former House speaker says. “These are not acts of senseless violence. These are acts of war. . . . It is tragic that the president is so committed to a leftist world view that he cannot allow himself to face these facts.”

The attacks in Libya and Egypt almost certainly were coordinated, Gingrich writes. Yet, “the left is desperate to deal with each new incident as though it is occurring in isolation. . . . Because of congressionally-imposed limitations and administrative and bureaucratic timidity, the fact is we know remarkably little about our enemies.”

The president is much to blame, Gingrich argues. “The policies of Obama have made our intellectual incoherence and strategic incompetence even worse. It is no accident that the embassy in Cairo issued a groveling statement, apologizing to the haters for having inconvenienced them with American freedom of speech.”

Look at White House policy in the Mideast in comparison to its policy at home, Gingrich says. “The Obama administration is waging war on the Catholic Church while appeasing the most extreme elements of Islam. This is the bizarre situation we now find ourselves in.”
