People who are outside of the United States of America, such Islamic terrorists, and people inside the United States of America, such as Barack Obama, are trying to tear down the United States of America, and it is clear how Barack Obama, who is at least a communist, is trying to break down the United States of America--through a national-health-care system, cap-and-trade rules, massive over-spending, and new rules about how business will be conducted in the country (that evident in the proposed Consumer Financial Protection Agency Act of 2009)--but it is not always clear how people who are based in other countries or were originally based in other countries are working to tear down the United States of America. The way in which some people are working to damage the United States of America is through violence, such as suicide-bomb attacks, and the ways in which other people are working to destroy the United States of America are through stealth means, such as to make Sharia-based laws a part of the law system of the country and to affect the business ways of the country. Really, this document can be called a collection of information related to showing how people are trying to push Sharia-based ideas--related to one particular religion--on the United States of America, though it can be said that the people are trying to push the Sharia-based ideas on many countries of the world, especially those in Europe and the United States of America.
I have to make this note. While doing research to put this document together, I discovered some people think of Sharia as being "conservative" in the range of the variations Islam, and someone who comes to the United States of America might think "conservative" in the United States of America can be likened to Sharia, which is strict Islam, or a country based on Sharia, in which women can be secondary in value to men. "Conservative" in the United States of America has no similarity to "conservative" as applied to Islam and Sharia. To learn more about "conservatism" in the United States of America, you should see my document entitled Conservatism for Children and What Conservatism Means, which can be reached by using this Conservatism link, but I note here that "conservatism" in the United States of America encompasses the rules and ideas set down for the country, such as in The U.S. Constitution, such as the rule that the people are the owners of the country and the people have specific rights, one of which is the right to speak out against the government (considered "free speech").
* * * A Few Terms * * *
I begin by passing along definitions. They are not in alphabetical order, but they are in an order of what I think you have to know first before you know something else. Other words that show up in this document could have been put here, but they show up later as I use them and show up with definitions.
"Koran" or "Quran" or "Qur'an"--these words can be found in English text to represent the name of the holy book followed by Muslims.
"Sharia Law" or "Shariah Law" or 'Shari'ah Law"--this is the strict Islamic system of laws, and Sharia law has a number of main schools (which will not be explained here), some of which are Hanbali (which is used in Saudi Arabia and is the most strict school), Hanifi, Ja'fari (which is used in Iran by Shai Muslims, who dominate the country), Maliki, and Shafi'i. Generally speaking, Shariah Law can or may pertain to daily life, such as marriage, dress, business, and religious rituals. Only a few themes of Shariah law are that women are the property of men and that followers must wage a holy war against all infidels, who are people who do not take up Shariah Law or pay a protection fee, and those who do not take up one of the first two alternatives can be targeted for death, and some of countries that are based on Shari'ah law are Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Iran.
"Islamic fundmentalism"--this two-word term can have a number of meanings, but, mostly the two-word term seems to apply to a very strict Islamic religious belief, that which has believers being highly against all that is tied to the West and, for one, being highly against rights for women, making women subordinate to men, and tolerance of other regions by persons who can be called Islamic fundamentalists is low, and the believers wish to install Sharia Law (or Islamic Law) on the world, especially the United States of America.
"Jihad"--the term refers to holy war in relation to Islam--at least Radical Islam--and it is a war against the West and Western culture and Christianity, Hinduism, and, in essence, other non-radical Islam religions. The people who subscribe to Jihad will die for their cause and will kill indiscriminately for their cause. Some pronounce the word as "Gee-Haad," but it is "Gee-Had."
"Islamofascist"or "Islamo-fascist"--this term is highly informal, and, generally speaking, it combines the political themes of fascism (in which, in a country, a government entity controls everything or much of everything within the country, though it may not actually own everything) with the themes of radical Islam (the strict ways of Shariah), and a person who is called an Islamofascist could be regarded as a radical Muslim.
"Madrasah" or "Madrassa"--generally speaking, these two words are English words to describe an Islamic school, but some people use either term to describe a truly radical Islamic school, which may be involved in teaching children the ways of terrorism and, which, certainly, is involved in pushing very strict Islamic teachings.
"Wahhabi"--Wahhabi theology is a form of Islam, and it is a highly strict version of Islam, and those who follow Wahhabi theology, which has roots going back to the 1700s, believe those who do not believe should be hated and considered infidels, and a person who follows the theology can be called a Wahhabi Muslim, and Wahhabism is the state religion of Saudi Arabia.
"Dawah" or "D'awah" or "Da'wah"--these terms are used by English writers to denote the practice of teaching Islam.
"Takaful"--this is an Islamic insurance principle, which is related to Islamic law, and a part of the idea is that, a portion of the payment goes to a charity pool of sorts (whatever that is, which can be hard to determine or traced). The operator determines where the money donated to charity ("tabarru") goes, and, in one instance, Takaful insurance is like mutual insurance, in which the policyholders are sort of owners of the insurance entity through their paying premiums, and if there is profit at the end of the year, the profits are sort of paid back as rebates to all the policyholders (but, it seems very likely, if there are losses, premium can go up).
* * * The Underlining Nature of Sharia * * *
Some matters in the world go unspoken, though they should be spoken often. Really, Sharia is a political ideology that is promoted as a "religion" or put under the guise of "religion," and, really, the nature of Sharia--the collection of rules and laws, such as the rules that make women lower in stature than men are--was created by a man named Mohammad. Mohammad, nothing more than a flesh and blood man, like any other man, was a violent man. When you come to understand what Sharia is, you come to understand Sharia is nothing more than one man's rules to justify the use of violence and oppression against other men (which came about through Mohammad's work to justify his using violence against other men), and the justification comes under the supposed will of Allah, and, really, it is a justification for a few men--rulers--to do violence to many, many other men.
* * * General Knowledge on Stealth * * *
For a person who dislikes the United States of America and wants change it, the best way in which to change it is to do things over time that will change it and turn it into what you want, such as as a place that you can control and a place made up of people who are beholden to you like slaves, and the actions that would be taken could be called "stealth" tactics. Stealth tactics can involve changing who has the money and who does not have the money--or at least the amount money that is enough to dictate what general business will or will not get done--and stealth tactics can involve making the country beholden to creditors who are based in other countries and who can then dictate all types of policies within the country, from the dress codes that must be followed to the religions that can be practiced. It is clear to me stealth tactics are being used to change the United States of America, and some of the people who are involved are members of the United States of America, such as Barack Obama, and some are not, and most of the ones who are not are in some way associated with the Middle East. This section gives you information that will give you background knowledge about how stealth tactics can and are being used to change the United States of America into, if it is allowed to continue, a slave state, governed by people who like tyrannical ways.
The United Nations:
This document will not provide a full discussion of the United Nations, but it will present some general facts. The United Nations began operating on October 24, 1945, and replaced the League of Nations. This organization of countries has a number of main parts, some of which are the Security Council, the General Assembly, and the International Court of Justice, and the entity has a number of agencies, some of which are the World Health Organization, the World Food Programme, and the United Nations Children's Fund (or the UNICEF). I note here that the Security Council is made up of five permanent nations (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and ten non-permanent members, and the main purpose of the Security Council is to, in essence, make rulings on security issues that nations who are members of the United Nations must follow, and, today, it can be said that the Security Council is run by communists (China and Russia), and socialists (France, which is a socialist nation), somewhat socialists (the United Kingdom, which is headed currently by a socialist party), and the United States of America (the President of which is a communist/Marxist/et cetera and the day-to-day governing of which is controlled by the Democratic Party, which is made up of socialists, Marxists, communists, et cetera). About 130 nations have grouped together to be thought of as a collection of Third World nations coalition. The funding for the United Nations comes in the form of donations from the members nations. By the way, it was in 1988 that two units with the United Nations--the United Nations Environment Programme and the World Meteorological Organization--created the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (or the IPCC), which is an organization that has been pushing hard the idea of manmade global warming (or manmade climate change or whatever it is called), which, in late 2009, was clearly beginning to be shown to be a lie because of the information, which had been leaked to the public, contained within emails and other electronic documents from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia (Norwich, the United Kingdom).
The World Bank:
The World Bank is not an entity that is a part of the United Nations; it is an international bank that was created in 1945 through a treaty amoung nations.
Money makes the world go round is a thought that might often come to your mind, but it seems very likely to me such terms as "Sharia banking," "Shariah-compliant finance," and "Shari'ah compliant financial products" rarely, if ever, enter your mind, but the use of such terms has been increasing in this country since the 1990s and especially since around 2003. When I think again, the terms that I am noting, such as "Sharia Banking," "Shariah-compliant finance," and "Shari'ah compliant financial products," you could be familiar with or think that you are familiar with enough. Since I am unaware of how much you know about such terms, I have to discussion such terms with you so that you are aware of them, especially the part about them that I want you to know, which is the bad part.
"Sharia banking," "Shariah-compliant finance," and "Shari'ah compliant financial products" are based on the ideas of "Sharia Law" or have as underlying structures the ways of Shariah law, or the ways of doing business related to Shari'ah Law are beholden to the ways of Shari'ah Law. For one, a business arrangement involving the ways of Sharia Law cannot involve, for instance, gambling, alcohol, eating pork, and interest (the paying of interest or the charging of interest, as is done in the United States of America). A business arrangement related to Sharia Law is supposed to involve a "charity" aspect, in which the client of the product agrees that a portion--two-point-five percent (2.5 percent), considered "zakat"--gets distributed to "charity," and what money is supposed go to "charity" is supposed to go to "Islamic charities" (which I could call approved "Islamic charities"). In addition, if a business arrangement should violate any Sharia Law principle, a penalty fee related to the business arrangement is imposed (the fee is imposed because it is deemed the contract was broken).
In relation to a business arrangement, there can be three main parties or four main parties involved, and, in all cases, one of the parties is a Sharia Supervising Board, and let me give you a few possibe business arrangements. In one business arrangement, a financial institution (one party) could make a loan available to a client (one party), and the third party is closely associated with the financial institution and is the Sharia Supervising Board. In another business arrangement, which involves a loan made available by a financial institution, there is someone with a product to sell, a buyer (the ultimate buyer), a financial institution (the middleman buyer and the supplier of the loan), and a Sharia Supervising Broad, which is closely linked to the financial institution.
In essence, a Shariah Supervising Board is always involved in a financial business transaction (forget about little business dealings, such as between two neighbors dealing with a little business manner, such as the buying of a used lawn mower). Such a board is made up of a few clerics who are tied to the Wahhabi school of Islamic thought and probably have ties to or are beholden to Saudi Arabia. Bascially, such a board determines whether or not a particular proposed business arrangement meets the rules of Shariah Law, and it can block the setting up of any arrangement that does not meet the laws and principles of Shariah (and that can give the committee or board big influence in the lives of the people in a community or society). By the way, there is not just one such board in the world--generally speaking, each financial institution that deals with Shariah-compliant products has a Sharia Supervising Board appointed to and associated with it.
Let me make an aside here. I must be honest and say that, to me, Sharia-based business is filled with a lot of hooey. In the Shariah-compliant finance model, no paying of "interest" can be involved in any transaction. To me, Sharia-compliant business methods are like non-Sharia business methods that use "interest," and although it is said that Shariah-based business does not and cannot involve "interest" or the paying of interest, because "interest" is against the principles of the Koran, both business methods add up to the same thing; to me, "interest" is still indirectly the result of the course of Shariah-based business, since, for one, tables do exist and are used to determine how installment payments are designed with an installment method of payment plan. I guess it comes down to a matter of semantics and how someone might like to define something. In addition, having a Shariah Supervising Board involved in determining whether or not a business arrangement can be done is nonsense and adds an unnecessary party into a business arrangement--a party that is nothing more than a "leach" (for example, there is already a seller, a buyer, and a lender in many cases, and when you have a Shariah Supervising Board involved, you have another party, which gets paid for doing, in essence, nothing, except, maybe, directing "charity" money to some type of "charity").
Given what I have said in the previous paragraph--the aside--I will now talk a bit about how business tranactions might be set up, and, in Sharia-compliant finance, it is making "profit" that is the object of a business arrangement, and the profit may end up (1) in the hands of the person who is loaning money or (2) in the hands of the person loaning money and the person who is being lent the money or (3) in the hands of the people as a group who put up money for the venture. If you want to buy a 1972 Chevy Nova from me, here is what might happen if you have to buy the vehicle with cash and cash obtained from a loan. When you talk with the loan entity, you could get the car by being involved in a lease-to-own-like arrangement with the loan entity. The loan entity buys the vehicle from me, and then the loan entity sells you the vehicle for the price that I sold it for and a profit margin (profit for the loan entity) to you. The loan entity will set up with you some type of paying arrangement, which would be some type of installment payment plan (it would be set up so that within the installment payments will be money that goes to, of course, "charity"). With this set up--this rent-to-own-like set up--you take possession of the vehicle, but you do not get clear title to the vehicle till the final payment is made. By the way, this method of doing business is called "Ijara." I could give an example of how to buy a house now, but, instead, I will give you an example of how you might buy a "Victor Swanson Funny Farm Wind Farm"--a place with a bunch of 1.5-megawatt wind turbines--from me (you are urged to see my document entitled The Power and the Power Killers: Energy in the United States of America, which talks about the nonsense of making wind power the main source of electricity in the U.S. and which can be reached by using this Power link). The cost of the "Victor Swanson Funny Farm Wind Farm" is $50 million dollars. Do you have that amount of money? Okay, I guess you will have to get a loan. What will happen is you will probably get involved in a partnership with a lending institution, and that partnership will technically be thought of as "Musharaka." What could happen in one case is you and the loan entity will set up an arrangement where you pay so much for the property and the loan entity pays so much for the property, the result of which becomes my $50 million in hand, and, in the contract, there will be a section that notes that you have set up a profit arrangement with the loan entity, in which, if you were to sell the "farm" before you get title to the property by paying off the loan, you would share in the profits (if any) as a partnership, and that sharing would be defined by a percentage arrangement (so much percentage for you and so much percentage for the loan entity), and, also, you would share as a partnership in what income is gained from property, such as through sale of electricity (and you would share in the costs incurred in doing business, such as the cost of buying parts to keep the wind turbines working). Okay, the property is bought from me, and if you want to be lone owner of the property, you will have to pay off the loan entity, and it could mean the principle (the original investment made by the loan entity) and a profit (whatever that amount is). Now, I will talk about a house that is on a lot near the "Victor Swanson Funny Farm Wind Farm," since the people who own the house want to sell the house and get away from a the wind-turbine farm. You decide to buy the house (with land), which I will call now the "property," so you can be close and near to your "Funny Farm Wind Farm." You could buy the property in an Ijara arrangement, a Muraharaka arrangement, or a Murabaha arrangement, and let us look at the Mushharaka arrangement. You begin to buy the property with a loan entity as a partnership. You set up a profit arrangement on the property in some percentage arrangement (such as fifty-fifty arrangement or a thirty/seventy arrangement). Then, both you and the loan entity put up money to buy the property, and then the partnership rents the property to you so that you can use it, which will involve your paying monthly rent payments (installments) to the partnership, and the partnership shares in the paid rent fee as income, and to get sole ownership of the property, you will have to pay the monthly rent fee and pay a fee related to paying down the principle or the stake put into buying the property by the loan entity. When the property is sold--for whatever reason, such as a foreclosure sale--the partnership shares on any profit or loss. By the way, there is a Murabaha arrangement in which a loan entity buys the property and then sells it to you for the amount that includes (1) the amount that the property was bought for and (2) an amount that is profit for the loan entity, and you make some arrangement in which you make payments to the loan entity, and, in this case, you get title to the property at the start, and while you are making payments, you have something that has been pledged as collateral, such as the house (with the Musharaka arrangement, you do not get title to the property till you have made all the required payments and the partnership contract comes to an end). Your buying the property--the house and land--would involve a Shariah Supervising Board associated with the loan entity, and there would be a "charity" feature involved in buying the property. (Remember: When you are involved with the selling/buying of real property in relation to the Shariah-compliant financing model, there are such costs as closing costs, attorney fees, and inspection fees, as there are with the regular American business model.)
Oh, in relation to Shariah-compliant finance or banking, if you were to have a checking account at a bank, you would not be charged any "interest" but you would very likely be charged in some way what are called service fees.
As I have noted, the idea of Sharia business has been around in the United States of America since the 1990s in relation to big financial institutions, and, now, many persons are shouting out warnings about the bad features about Sharia business, especially it involves a committee or board of clerics--who are of one religious faith--who can affect the ways of doing business in a community or society, and, today, the push to make the ways of Sharia business more commonplace are coming from people based or from such countries as Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Malaysia, such as those involved in the oil trade, and people are trying to make the hubs of Sharia-compliant international business London (England), Malaysia, and the Middle East.
Let me show some history about Shariah business showing up in Europe. The Islamic Bank of England, which was considered a stand-alone Islamic bank in England was opened in 2005. Around 2006, Deutsche Bank (of Germany) got involved with Ithmaar Bank of Bahrain to launch a Shariah-Compliant Financial fund. Barclays is a financial services firm and a holding company, which is based in London, England, and, in 2007, Barclays (Barclays Global Investors BGI) launched Shariah-compliant exchange-traded funds (EFTs), the first to be launched in England, and a few of the persons on the the Sharia oversight board then were Dr. Mohammed Elgaria, Sheikh Nizam Yacuby, and Dr. Abu Guddah.
HSBC Holdings was incorporated in England in 1990, and it is based in London, which some people want to be a hub for Shariah-Compliant Finance business. This entity was sort of developed out of the existing Hongkong and Shangai Banking Corporation, and the establishment of HBSC made it the parent company of the Hongkong and Shangai Banking Corporation. Since the 1990, HSBC Holdings has bought financial investment institutions in other countries, such as the Republic National Bank of New York (the United States of America) in1999. And HSBC is involved in Shariah-Compliant Finance products and has interests in banking ventures in the Middle East, such as the Saudi British Bank, and, for example, in 2005, HSBC launched its "first Shariah-compliant multimanager fund," which was HSBC Amanah Investment Funds.
Incidentally, in late 2009, I learned that, in 2010, the first Shariah-Compliant Finance bank--called Kuveyt Turk Beteiligungsbank--was scheduled to open in Germany, and it was going to be a subsidiary of a Turkish-Kuwaiti bank
Let me show some history about Sharia business tied more closely to the economy of the United States of America, doing that in the next five paragraphs.
In the 1990s, Citigroup got involved in Sharia finance, but this entity did not take up being involved in Sharia-based business in earnest till the next decade. Citi Islamic Investment Bank, which involved a Sharia board, was launched in Bahrain in June 2006 by the parent company, Citicorp Banking Corporation, and the first president was Dr. Nazir Hammad (who would have ties to the North America Fiqh Council, which has had ties to Hamas). In May 2008, Citibank was offering Shariah-Compliant products to "meet the working capital needs of UAE-based corporate clients." (By the way, Citigroup made donations to ACORN, the known corrupt organization, for the Get Out the Vote campaign of 2008, which was designed to help Barack Obama, who had worked as an attorney for ACORN in the past.)
In Ann Arbor, Michigan, there is a bank called University Islamic Financial Corp. (a subsidiary of University Bank), and through the entity, people can have, for example, time-deposit accounts and get involved in mutual funds, all of which are Shariah-compliant investment vehicles. University Bank began to offer Sharia-compliant products in 2003, and, then, in December 2005, University Bank created University Islamic Financial Corp., and at the time, University Bank was a subsidiary of University Bankcorp.
AIG stands for American International Group, and although it is currently head quartered in New York City, New York, it was founded in Shanghai, China, in 1919. On October 1, 2006, AIG Takaful - Enaya (Takaful Insurance Market) was started up in Bahrain, and this entity had Sharia-compliant insurance and was working with the Central Bank of Bahrain. In December 2008, AIG began to offer homeowners insurance products that were Shariah compliant, and the products were being offer through a subsidiary called Risk Specialists Companies, Inc., and, generally speaking, a particular policy was a Takaful Homeowners Policy.
JPMorgan has been involved with Shariah-based business around the middle of the first decade of the twenty-first century. It was in June 2007 that Safdar Alam was hired by JPMorgan to develop Shariah-compliant products for the company; Safadar Alam had worked at UBS. In September 2007, JPMorgan & Chase added more persons to its payroll to develop Shariah-compliant business in Africa and the Middle East; some of the persons who joined the company around this time was Omair Mooraj and Ehsun Zaidi, both of whom had come from Dubai Islamic Bank (which had been founded in 1975), and the two were to report to Abdul Karim.
The Goldman Sachs Group Inc. often simply referred to as Goldman Sachs, is a bank holding company, and some of the persons who have been executives at the entity and then gone on to be the director the the U.S. Department of the Treasury are Robert Rubin (in the Clinton administration) and Henry Paulson (during the George W. Bush administration). In May 2006, Henry Paulson, who worked at the entity, left to become the secretary or director of the U.S. Department of Treasury, and Henry Paulson would be heavily involved in the bailout events of around 2008. In 2007, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs Asset Management joined with Dubia Islamic Bank (informally known as DIB) to launch a Sharia-compliant investment fund, and the fund was scheduled to run five years, at the end of which an investor would get the principal and some percentage type of profit. In October 2008, this entity received a bailout from the U.S. Treasury--a ten-billion preferred stock investment.
I guess that will do, though I could talk about other places that have gotten involved in Sharia-compliant products, such as Merrill Lynch & Co., which became a division of Bank of America through purchase in very late December 2008.
The economic crash of around 2008, which was triggered by federal-government policy related to the home-loan market, particularly Freddie Mac and Franny Mae, resulted in, for one, companies receiving bailouts from the federal government or federal-government related entities, and some of the money went to companies that were involved in Shariah-compliant products, and that worried many people, since Sharia-based business involved funneling money to "charities," and it had already shown that a number of "charities" used were actually fronts for entities that were giving money to terrorist organizations or entities, such as Hamas, which are hoping for a world that is made up of governments based on Sharia Law. In June 2007, it was public knowledge that Bear Sterns Asset Management was getting involved with Saudi businessmen, such as Prince Mishaal A.T. Al-Saud, to form a business that would market Shariah-compliant finance products--Bear Sterns Arab Asset Management; Bear Stearns Asset Management would receive an emergency loan (bailout) from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in March 2008 and would be acquired by JPMorgan Chase in May 2008. In 2007, Lehman Brothers began doing Sharia-based business the Middle East (in Qatar and Dubai), and, on September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and, over next the several months, this entity was sold off, such as to Barclays and Nomura Holdings. In 2008 and 2009, AIG received several bailouts--either credit lines or money--from the federal government or federal-government associated entities of more than $300 billion.
Keep in mind: On December 19, 2008, WorldNetDaily did a report on a letter sent by three U.S. Senators to AIG the previous day, and here is a portion of the text from the article: "'Under Sharia finance, your company must contribute to Zakat, the Third Pillar of Islam, which is a 2.5 percent donation to Muslim charity,' the lawmakers wrote in their 3-page letter, a copy of which was obtained by WND. 'While this may sound honorable, al-Qaeda was able to receive between $300 (million) and $500 million from Zakat contributors who used a web of non-transparent charities and front companies to funnel money through Islamic banks.'" (Sperry, Paul. "U.S. lawmakers scold AIG over Sharia finance: Bailed-out firm 'marking products that support radical ideology.'" WorldNetDaily, 19 December 2008, 2:20 a.m. Eastern.)
It is clear Sharia-compliant business is not good for the United States of America. For one, it allows a few persons--Shariah-type clerics--to be in a position to influence the business that gets done or does not get done, and if Sharia-compliant business should become commonplace in Western countries, the business industries of such countries and the stock markets in such countries can be highly influenced by people who do not seem to have the best interests of the United States of America in mind, such as Saudi Arabia, from which clerics assigned to Sharia Supervising Boards, who are working to do "socially responsible business," come. Also, money--called "charity" money--is being funneled through business arrangements to terrorists.
* * * Groups and Individuals * * *
While I put together the first edition of this document, I came across the names of persons and the names of entities that have been involved in working to harm the United States of America and other countries that are a part of the West or that should be considered suspect in what they do. Some of the people or entities no longer exist, having been, for instance, killed, jailed, or disbanded. An expert in terrorism would certainly find the list incomplete, but the list is only provided as a starting point for a novice, which I was when I began putting this document together (of course, it seems very likely, if I update this document, this list will be expanded).
Groups and entities:
Al Qaeda or al-Qaeda or al-Qaida is considered an Islamic radical group or a group made up of violent Islamic extremists, and it was founded some time around the end of the 1980s, and some of the members of al-Qaeda took part in the attack using jets on the United States of America on September 11, 2001.
The American Muslim Association of North America was founded in 1992, and a part of the mission statement in December 2009 was: "...Its mission is to bring people together through knowledge and caring....A.M.A.N.A. has been involved in almost all areas of society and services such as: Helping people with counseling and financial support including on a one to one basis, distributing information among U.S. prisons....Our guide is the Qu'ran (Islam's Holy Book) and the Sunnah (the way of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him )...." This entity supports Hamas. In 2007, the Web site for this organization had this thought: "...Stop apologizing for Al Qaeda. You didn't create them, the Central Intelligence Agency did. Stop apologizing for every act of violence perpetrated by Muslims--unless you demand that every Christian and Jew apologize for the murderous acts of their co-religionists, too...." [Note: For some time, Radicals Muslims have been converting prisoners in prisons in the United States of America to Islam.]
The American Muslim Council was a register charity organization that was based in Chicago, Illinois. The organization was founded in 1990 by Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi, and involved in the creation was the Muslim Brotherhood (or the Brotherhood). This organization, which is considered disbanded, supported such terrorist entities as Hamas and Hezbollah.
The American Society for Muslim Advancement was founded in 1997. On May 21, 2010, the Web site for this entity reported that mission for the entity was: "The American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) is a New York-based nonprofit organization founded in 1997 to elevate the discourse on Islam and foster environments in which Muslims thrive. We are dedicated to strengthening au authentic expression of Islam based on cultural and religious harmony through interfaith collaboration, youth and women's empowerment, and arts and cultural exchange." The founder of the ASMA was Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who, in May 2010, was on the board of directors and was the chairman of the Cordoba Initiative, and another member of the board of directors was Daisy Khan, who was Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's wife. In late 2009 and 2010, the American Society of Muslim Advancement was working in earnest to build a mosque near the site of the former towers of the World Trade Center, New York City, New York, and it was on August 3, 2010, that the Landmarks Preservation Commission in New York City voted nine 'yes' votes to zero "no" votes to not block the ability of people to build the mosque, such as by making land--where an old building called "Park Place" is located--tied to historical rules, unlike other buildings on the block.
The Arab American Action Network, which was set up in 1995, has these words in the mission statement: "The Arab American Action Network (AAAN) strives to strengthen the Arab community in the Chicago area by building its capacity to be an active agent for positive change. As a grassroots nonprofit, our strategies include community organizing, advocacy, education, providing social services, leadership development, cultural outreach and forging productive relationships with other communities...." This entity is based in the Palestinian community of Chicago, and instrumental in the founding of the entity was Rashid Khalidi, who was once the director of the Palestine Liberation Organization press agency (the Palestine Liberation Organization or PLO was created in the West Bank of the Middle East in 1964 and, in the past, has been known as a terrorist organization, and it is a anti-Israel organization). The AAAN has had close working ties with the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights, which supports open borders for the United States of America. [Note: For many years, Barack Obama was based in Chicago, and the part of the mission statment that I have presented reminds me much of Barack Obama--his ways and his word usage.]
The Arab American Political Action Committee was formed in January 1998 and is based in Dearborn, Michigan, and one portion of the mission statement for this entity is: "...1. Prepare, advise and support Arab American candidates for political offices. Encourage and help Arab Americans to pursue public service careers in all branches of government...."
The Association of Muslim Social Scientists of North America was founded in 1972 by Ismail Raji al-Faruqi and Abdulhamid Abu Sulayman. It is considered a constituent organization of the Islamic Association of North America. A portion of the mission statement is: "To provide a forum through which Islamic positions on various academic disciplines can be promoted, with an emphasis on social sciences and humanities...." A portion of the stated goals is: "...In general, to carry out any and all activities that are strictly scientific, educational, religious, cultural and charitable in accordance with Islamic teachings."
The Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers was founded in 1969 as an outgrowth of the Muslim Students' Association. On December 11, 2009, the Web site for the AMSE noted: "Popularly known as AMSE, the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers is a group of professionals, para-professionals and near-professionals in science and engineering and related fields, who are also Muslims by faith. AMSE was founded in the late sixties and was later a constituent organization of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) at its founding in the early eighties...."
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (or CAIR) was founded in 1994 by those who had been associated with the Islamic Association of Palestine, and it is based in Washington, D.C., and operates in dozens of cities in the country. The entity claims to be an civil-liberties group, and it does lobbying work in Washington, D.C., publishes a number of publications, holds conferences and workshops, is involved in voter-registration drives, and does more. One portion of the mission statement is: "...CAIR's mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding." Two of the founders--Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad--were once members of Islamic Association of Palestine, and it has been shown that the two have had ties to Hamas, and it has been reported that CAIR is a front group for Hamas.
Hamas, which was created in 1987, is a Palestinian Islamic organization that has a paramilitary force, and it is considered by the United States of America to be a terrorist organization. Former members of the organization have been involved in suicide bombings, and, since 2007, Hamas has ruled Gaza. This group was founded by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin (who was killed in 2004), Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi, and Mohammad Taha, all of whom were members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The charter of 1988 for this organization calls for the eliminating Israel and for replacing Israel with some type of Islamic state. Sadam Hussein was involved in providing funding to this group; today, Iran provides some funding. It works with Hezbollah.
Hezbollah or Hizballah: In essence, Hezbollah, created in 1982, is a militia/political party organization based in Lebanon, and, originally, the leaders got inspiration from Ayotollah Khomeini, and the organization is supported by Shiite Muslims, and the organization has made terrorist attacks on Americans.
The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (which was at one time also called the Occupied Land Fund) was a fund-raising entity in the United States of America, and it existed from about 1989 to 2009, when the founders of the entity were put in prison for life for having made funds available to Hamas, and one of the important members of the organization was Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook.
The Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride Coalitionis an entity that wishes to, for one, reduce or eliminate restrictions on immigration in the United States of America

The Islamic Circle of North America (or the ICNA) is an organization that exists in the United States of America and is based in Jamaica, New York, and it pushes for an Islamic system of life (called "Iqamat-ud-Deen"), and, on December 11, 2009, the Web site for the organization noted: "Islamic Circle of North America is a leading grass roots organization which seeks to obtain the pleasure of Allah (SWT) through working for the establishment of Islam in all spheres of life. ICNA has many projects, programs, and activities which are designed to help in the process of molding the individual and reforming society at large."

The Islamic Research Foundation was founded in February 1991 and is based in India, and the president of this entity is Dr. Zakir Naik, and this organization is responsible for the television channel called Peace TV in India. The organization promotes Islamic Da'wah (or Da'wah). In addition, this organization is involved with a school called the Islamic International School.
The Islamic Society of North America (or INCA) is a non-profit entity in the United States of America. It was founded in 1981 by the Muslim Students' Association (which was Saudi funded) and Sami Al-Arian, and it subscibes or abides by Wahhabi theology. One part of its stated goal to the public is: "...ISNA is committed to freedom, to eradicating prejudice and to creating a society where Muslims can live peacefully and prosper alongside other Americans from all walks of life and diverse traditions and faith...." An affiliate is North American Islamic Trust (which is associated with money from Saudi Arabia), and, as noted in "ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA (ISNA)," a Web page that belongs to DiscoveryTheNetworks.org, Kaukab Siddique (of New Trend) has noted that ISNA controls most of the mosques in the United States of America. The entity opposed the Patriot Act (a U.S. law).
The Islamic Thinkers Society, which is based in New York City, New York, can be called a Radical Islamic group in that it wishes to turn the world into a strict Islamic state, and this entity promotes the downfall of the United States of America, Jews, Christians, Shi'ites, Western civililzation, and more, and, on December 11, 2009, I found (while visiting the Web site for the organization) its objective to be: "Our objective is to resume the Islamic way of life to which will fulfill the purpose of the aim. Our objective is to bring back the apparatus that was destroyed in 1924 i.e. Khilafah. Indeed, it was the Khilafah that united the Muslim Ummah under one flag, one land, one border, and one leader. It was the Khilafah which served as the appartus to make sure that Tawheed manifested in all aspect in the Muslim Ummah's affairs. Surely, anyone who accepts any other system than Allah's Shari'ah is worshiping the one who has put his laws in place of the laws of Allah. This is a major form of shirk and anyone who commits a major shirk has left Islam."
Jama'a Islamica is a terrorist group in Egypt that wishes to over throw the government of Egypt and make the government an Islamic-type government, and it has followers all over the world, and the spirtual leader--Shaykh Umar Abd al-Rahman--was involved in the bombing at the World Trade Center, New York City, New York, in 1993.
The Muslim American Society (or MAS) was founded in 1993, and two individuals who were instrumental in setting up the organzation were Mohammed Mahdi Akef and Ahmed Elkadi (who was then a member of the Muslim Brotherhood). The web site for this organization notes: ...Since its inception, ISNA, and other organizations affililiated with it, worked diligently with those who were to become the founding members and future leadership of MAS, towards the advancement of the cause of Islam and Muslims in North America...." And one of the objectives is: "...To foster unity among Muslims and Muslim organizations and encourage cooperation and coordination amongst them." This entity can be considered the U.S. affilliate of the Muslim Brotherhood (or the "Brotherhood") of Egypt.
The Muslim American Society Council of Islamic Schools is the educational branch of the Muslim American Society, and, for one, "...it is working to establish an effective network of Islamic schools in order to exchange information and expertise, and upgrade and unify cirricula...." It is trying to create a Muslim school system in North America. And the Web site for the unit noted: "...The future of the Muslim community in North America is dependent upon securing all of our possible human and financial resources...."
The Muslim Arab Youth Association (or MAYA) existed from the 1970s to 2004, and what it did was set up conferences that featured speakers, such as known Islamic terrorists.
The Muslim Brotherhood (fully known as the The Society of the Muslim Brotherhood) is, in essence, a political party in the Middle East, such as Egypt, but it is really considered a movement from which political groups and political parties spring. It was founded in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna. The group will use violence and suppression to push its goal of strict Islam. People associated with this organization helped to put together the Islamic Society of North America. This entity has had a U.S. counterpart since the 1960s, and members of the entity have been involved in creating such entities as the Islamic Society of North America, Muslim American Society, and the Muslim Students' Association. It is a Sunni Muslim-dominated group. This group, which is informally called the "Brotherhood," opposes Western ideas and has a document that is informally called the "Manifesto of the Muslim Brotherhood" (which is made up of fifteen pages of rules and such). The U.S. affiliate is the Muslim American Society.
The Muslim Students' Association (or Muslim Students Association) is also known as the MSA. It has this main goal: "...to serve the best interest of Islam and Muslims in the United States and Canada so as to enable them to practice Islam as a complete way of life...." Chapters can be found at about 600 colleges and unversities in North America, such as California State University--Northridge, MIT, Oregon State University, the University of Idaho, Penn State University, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (where the first unit was established in January 1963), the University of Michigan, the University of Minnesota, the University of North Carolina, the University of Southern California, and the University of Texas. I found (from DiscoveryTheNetrworks.org,) that, generally speaking, this entity in someway has provided funding to Hamas and Hezbollah and has promoted speaking engagments in the U.S. by radical Muslims.
The Nation of Islam is an organization (found in the United States of America) that was created in July 1930 in Detroit, Michigan, and the entity is considered sort of a heretical sect of Islam, and, in essence, this organization was reformed in 1978. It is based in Chicago, Illinois, and Louis Farrakhan is the leader of the organization and is known for having said, "...White people are potential humans...they haven't evolved yet...." The members of this organization believe that there is no other God than Allah, who had appeared to them through Wallace D. Fard Muhammad, who had founded the Nation of Islam.
The North American Islamic Trust was set up by the Muslim Students' Association in the early 1970s, and it holds title to Islamic-related properties in the U.S., such as mosques and Islamic centers, and it has created mutual funds, and it is involved in publishing books. In December 2009, the Web site for the organization noted: "The North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) is a wapf, the historical Islamic equivalent of an American trust or endowment, serving Muslims in the United States and their institutions. NAIT facilitates the realization of American Muslims' desire for a virtuous and happy life in a Shari'ah-compliant way...." Today, it is involved in what is called the The Iman Fund (symbol: IMANX). It once had ties with the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.
The Organisation of the Islamic Conference (or the OIC) was established in 1969, and, in early 2010, it was made up of 57 entities or members states. In early 2010, two of the goals of the OIC were "Enhance and consolidate the bonds of fraternity and solidarity of the Member States" and "Strengthen intra-Islamic economic and trade cooperation; in order to achieve economic integration leading to the establishment of an Islamic Common Market," and, of course, underlying principles of the OIC are derived from Sharia Law or Quranic Law. This organization is supposed to exist to improve human rights, but many of the nations involved in the entity are countries in which oppression is commonplace, especially for women, and some of those such countries are Lybia, Saudi Arabia, and Syria.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which was organized in 1979, is an entity that seeks to destroy Israel and replace Israel with some type of Islamic state, and since 1979, this organization has been involved in numerous terrorist acts and has killed people in terrorist acts.
The Quranic Literacy Institute had its assets seized by the United States government in 1998, and a top executive was Bassam Osman, who, around April 2008, was the chairman of the North American Islamic Trust and IMANX.
Prince Alwalweed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding had this statement at its Web site in December 2009: "...In December 2005, the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (CMCU) received a $20 million dollar gift from HRH Prince Alwalweed Bin Talal, an internationally renowned businessman and global investor, to support and expand the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding. The Center was renamed the Prince Alwalweed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACUMU). This endowment fund was the second largest single gift in Georgetown University history."

Sheikh Yusaf al-Qaradawai has called Shiria finance--"Jihad with money." Another often quoted statement of his is--"God has ordered us to fight our enemies with our lives and with our money..." In 2003, this man said: "...Islam will return to Europe as a victorious conqueror after having been expelled twice. This time it will not be conquest by the sword, but by preaching and spreading [Islamic] ideology...The future belongs to Islam...The spread of Islam until it conquers the entire world and includes the both East and West marks the beginning of the return of the Islamic Caliphate...."

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf founded the American Society for Muslim Advancement in 1997 and the Cordoba Initiative in 2003, and he has been instrumental in trying to erect a mosque about two miles from the location of the former World Trade Center Towers on New York City, New York, which had been destroyed on September 11, 2001. The mosque, which was orginally given the name "Cordoba House," was announced to the public in December 2009. Over the next year and a half or so, a lot of people were against the idea of allowing a mosque to be built only blocks from where the World Trade Center had been. On August 3, 2010, the Landmarks Preservation Commission in New York City--in a nine "yes" votes to zero "no" votes--decided to let people build the mosque, deciding not to attach, for example, special historical status to an old building--known as Park Place--that currently stood at the proposed construction site, as it had for about 152 years. It was on September 30, 2001, while on 60 Minutes, a weekly program shown by CBS-TV, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said (in relation to the attacks on September 11, 2001), "I wouldn't say that the United States deserved what happened, but United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened." Oh, it was also on that broadcast of 60 Minutes that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said, "In fact, in, in the most direct sense, Osama bin Laden is made in the U.S.A." On June 18, 2010, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said on a WABC-AM in New York City, New York, in response to a question from Aaron Klein about whether or not he agreed that Hamas should be considered a terrorist organization as it is by the U.S. State Department: "I'm not a politician. I try to avoid, ah, the issues of--the issue of terrorism is a very complex question. And, um, I'm a bridge builder...." and "...My work, my work, I defined my work as a bridge builder. Do not, I do not want to be placed, neither will I accept to be placed in a position of being put in a position where I am the target of one side or another." On Saturday, August 14, 2010, Aaron Klein interviewed Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf on WABC-AM (New York City, New York), and here is one comment that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf made: "...We are different, we are as people a nation totally different from yours history. We are already living under the tradition of Islam. Islam is controlling every sorts of our live....," and the comment showed what is true--that Islam controls everything of a person's life, which includes, for example, the way of marriage, the way of divorce, and the way of business, but what Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf did not express is that the way of Islam that he supports treats women as lower class entities in relation to men, and, in fact, in a country in which Sharia is the way of life, women have little rights and are forced to dress a certain way and behave a certain way--and they can be penalized for failure to follow rules, and a penalty can be death by stoning, such as for adultery (which does not get applied to men).
Let me go back to Tuesday, July 12, 2005, when Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf was in Great Britain and gave a lecture. Here is some of what Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said: "...The complexity arises, Sir, from the fact that political problems and the history of the politics between the West and the Muslim World. Um, we tend to forget in the West that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non-Muslims. Ah, you may remember that, um, that the U.S.-led sanction against Iraq led to the, ah, to the death of over a half-million Iraqi children. It has been documented by the United Nations. And when Madeleine Albright--who has become a friend of mine over the past couple of years--ah, when she was Secretary of State, and was asked whether this was worth it said, 'It was worth it.' What, what complicates the, the, the, the discussion intra-Islamically is the fact that the West has, has not been cognizant and has not addressed the issues of its own contribution to, ah, to much injustice in the Arab and Muslim world...." Another piece of thought that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf presented is, "...How do you negotiate? How do you tell people whose homes have been destroyed, whose lives have been destroyed, that this does not justify your actions of terrorism. It's hard. Yes, it is true that it does not justify the acts of bombing innocent civilians--that does not solve the problem--but after fifty years of in many cases oppression, of U.S support of authoritarian regimes that have, ah, violated human rights in the most heinous of ways, how else can people get attention?...."
And I must here present in a comment made by Daisy Khan--Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's wife--on This Week with Christian Amanpour on Sunday, August 22, 2010: "Yes, I think we are, ah, deeply concerned, ah, because this is like a metastasized anti-Semitism. That's what we feel right now. It's, it's not even Islamic-phobic. It's beyond Islamic-phobic. It's hate of Muslims! And we are deeply concerned, ah, you know, have had yesterday had a council with all religious, Muslim religious leaders from around the country, and everybody is deeply concerned about what's going on. ah, around the nation...." [The question from Christian Amanpour was: "Are you concerned about the long-term relationship between American Muslims and the rest of society here?"]

* * * Thoughts on Barack Obama * * *
It is impossible to know everything that is within the mind of a man, but it is possible to guess what a man might do in the future, using information tied to past events pertaining to the man or pertaining to thoughts made public by the man. Barack Obama, who was born in August 1961, has done much over the years to keep information about what he is secret so that people will not know who he is and what he is and what he thinks, but there is information available in public that does show who and what Barack Obama is and what he thinks to some extent; up to this date, Barack Obama has yet to make such personal records as college transcripts available to the public, as all past U.S. presidents have. At the Web site of The Hologlobe Press, you can find a number of documents that have information that can help you define Barack Obama in your mind, such as Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama and The Evil and Sick Mind of Barack Obama: A Look at His Insidious and Treacherous Ways (Attacking Real Scientists, the U.S. Military, and More), and they can be found by using this Site-Summary Page link to the Site-Summary Page of The Hologlobe Press, but I provide here some thoughts that have a close relationship with the main topic of this document.
From 1969 to 1971, Barack Obama, when he was a boy, attended a Muslim school--called Besuki State Elementary School Menteng--in Jakarta, Indonesia (he lived in Indonesia from 1967 to 1971), and, at that time, Barack Obama was called Barry Soetoro, the latter name coming from his mother's current husband, Lolo Soetoro (an Indonesian Muslim); Barark Obama's mother was Ann Dunham, who was a left-wing activist, and it looks as if Ann Dunham and Barack Obama, Sr., were atheists, though Barack Obama, Sr., was officially a Muslim.
It must be remembered that, from 1999 to very late 2002, Barack Obama served as a member of the board of the Woods Fund (Chicago, Illinois), and also on the board was William C. Ayers, who had been a member of the U.S.-based terrorist group of around the early 1970s known, for one, as the Weather Underground, and the Woods Fund provided money to the Arab American Action Network, the co-founder of which was Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, who has held a fundraiser for Barack Obama, is a critic of Israel, and has made comments that support Palestinian terror actions (Klein, Aaron. "Obama worked with terrorist: Senator helped fund organization that rejects 'racist' Israel's existence." WorldNetDaily, 24 February 2008, 5:44 p.m. Eastern.).
In January 2006, Barack Obama was in the Holy Land, his first trip to the Holy Land.
Around February 2008, a 2006 photograph of Barack Obama in Muslim-like garb was available on the Internet, and it was a picture of Barack Obama when Barack Obama made a taxpayer-funded trip to Kenya, where his father was born and where Barack Obama had ties to Raila Odinga--Barack Obama had spoken on behalf and in support of Raila Odinga (who is from the Luo tribe) a rallies, and, at the time the photograph was made available, Raila Odinga was opposed to President of Kenya Mwai Kibaki (who was from the Kikuyu tribe) and seemed to be highly interested in changing the country into some type of Sharia Law based state by rewriting the constitution of the country (Corsi, Jerome R. "'Muslim' photo raises Obama connection questions: Linked to opposition leader who admitted plans for Islam." WorldNetDaily, 25 February 2008, 10:25 p.m. Eastern.).
In July 2008, while on the U.S. presidential campaign trail, Barack Obama went to the Middle East.
Barack Obama said on June 23, 2007: "...Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart. It got hijacked. Part of it's because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who've been all to eager to exploit what divides us...."
In an email to David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network in July 2007, Barack Obama wrote: "...Whatever we once were, we're no longer a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers. We should acknowledge this and realize that when we're formulating policies from the state house to the Senate floor to the White House, we've got to work to translate our reasoning into values that are accessible to every one of our citizens, not just members of our own faith community...."
Around September 2008, such as through Newsmax (an Internet-based news entity) and an interview of a man named Percy Sutton on a television channel in New York that is known informally as NY1, people were learning that a man named Khalid al-Mansour, who had business and friendship ties to Alwaleed bin Talal (of Saudi Arabia), persuaded Percy Sutton to write a letter of recommendation on behalf for Barack Obama to have Barack Obama enter Harvard University (Barack Obama had already been at Columbia University in New York) (Cashill, Jack. "Is Khalid al-Mansour the man behind Obama myth." WorldNetDaily, 28 August 2008 ;Timmerman, Ken. "Obama Had Close Ties to Top Saudi Advisor At Early Age." Newsmax.com, 3 September 2008, 05:58 p.m.; Timmerman, Ken. "Who is Khalid al-Mansour?" Newsmax.com, 4 September 2008, 5:47 p.m.).
In the summer of 2009, people in the United States of America discovered Barack Obama was more sympathetic to Radical Islamic leaders in Iran than the Iranians who were protesting in relation to a national election, and, around the time, it was publicly shown and reported on, such as through the Internet, how the government of Iran beat and did worse to protesters.
It must be remembered Barack Obama, who has shown himself to be a perpetual liar, has said that he is a Christian (of course, Barack Obama is also a communist and Marxist, so the information about his being a Christian has to be thought about), and Barack Obama spent about twenty years as a member of a church in Chicago that was headed by a racist known as Reverend Jeremiah Wright, who put down the United States of America in his preachings, and it could be argued well the church under Reverend Jeremiah Wright was not a place that promoted or preached goodness and such that a person should expect to find being done at a Christian church.
In early 2009, U.S. President Barack Obama met with members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Around early April 2009, Barack Obama made a trip to the Middle East, and, on April 1, 2009, Barack Obama bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, where most of the people are Sunni Muslims (about fifteen percent of the people are Shia Muslims).
Barack Obama said in April 2009: "...We will convey our deep appreciation for the Muslim faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world, even in my own country...."
In June 2009, Barack Obama was once again in the Middle East, and Barack Obama said on June 1, 2009: "...if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world...."
Barack Obama said on June 4, 2009: "...as the Holy Quran tells us, 'Be conscious of God and speak always the truth.' That is what I will try to do today--to speak the truth as best I can , humbled by the task before us...."
Barack Obama said on June 4, 2009: "...The relationship between Muslims and the West includes centuries of coexistence and cooperation, but also conflict and religious wars. More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims and a Cold War in which the Muslim majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations...." [Barack Obama was trying to prove that the United States of America has been involved in colonialism, which, if it is like what Spain, France, and England did several centuries ago, is not true, since the United States of America has not been practicing colonialism in the Middle East, such as by making Saudi Arabia or another country a colony of the United States of America.]
Barack Obama said on June 4, 2009: "...And throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality...." [You should see, for one, an article about Barack Obama being dressed in Muslim-like clothing on a trip to Kenya in 2006, and the article has information about Islamic attacks on Christian churches in Kenya, and the article is entitled "'Muslim' photo raises Obama connection questions: Linked to opposition leader who admitted plans for Islam." (Corsi, Jerome R. "'Muslim' photo raises Obama connection questions: Linked to opposition leader who admitted plans for Islam." WorldNetDaily, 25 February 2008, 10:25 p.m. Eastern.]
It must never be forgotten that 2009 was or is the year in which the Barack Obama administration opened up the regular U.S. courts to captured Radical Islamists, such as the persons who were associated with the attacks on the United States of America on September 11, 2001, showing Barack Obama is sympathetic to the ways of Radical Islamists.
On December 25 2009, it was Christmas Day. Around this time, news entities reported that the Christmas Tree for the White House--the Obamas--had an ornament with the face of Mao Zedong, who was the head of China in the mid-1900s or so and was instrumental in killing millions of Chinese who opposed his communist ways, and the tree had an ornament with an image of Barack Obama on Mount Rushmore, and another ornament had a transvestite. These ornaments are not a sign of a man who is a good Christian, a good Jew, or a good Muslim, or a good Hindu, et cetera, since no good man promotes a man--Mao Zedong--who killed millions of his own people. (You are urged to see my document entitled THE CRUD AROUND BARACK OBAMA: My Rule--"Like Minds Get Together", which has, for instance, information about close associates of Barack Obama's who have praised Mao--Anita Dunn and Ron Bloom--and which can be reached by using the link at the end of this document.)
In 1979, the Palestine Islamic Jihad was formed, having the goal of replacing Israel with some type of Islamic state, and it quickly became a group that was involved in terrorist acts and killing people through terrorist acts. In 2006, a man named Sami al-Arian pleased guilty in a U.S. court to aiding the Palestine Islamic Jihad and was sentenced to four years in prison. In January 2009, Barack Obama made a man named Rashad Hussain a deputy associate counsel for Barack Obama, and, in February 2010, Barack Obama made Rashad Hussain a special envoy to the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (which, in 2010, was an organization of 57 members or states and whose underlying goals are based on Sharia Law or Quranic Law); in 2004, Rashad Hussain had said that Sami al-Arian was the object of "politically motivated prosecution." (For more information on this subject, you should see the "Rashad Hussain" section of my document entitled THE CRUD AROUND BARACK OBAMA: My Rule--"Like Minds Get Together", which can be reached through this link: Crud.)
In this document, I have information about Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who created the entity known as the American Society for Muslim Advancement and who has been involved in working to erect at mosque near the location of the once-existing World Trade Center, New York City, New York, and now I tie Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf to Barack Obama, showing more of Barack Obama's support for Islamic Radicals and Sharia and even Hamas. The U.S. Department of State is an entity of the Executive Branch of the federal government that is involved with, for instance, foreign relations, and, of course, Barack Obama is, ultimately, the man in charge of the U.S. Department of State, which is also called the "State Department," but Hilliary Clinton is the U.S. Secretary of State who is considered the head of the "State Department" (Barack Obama had nominated Hilliary Clinton to become the Secretary of State). On Monday, August 9, 2010, it was revealed by the State Department that it was funding a trip to the Middle East by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, meaning, in essence, Barack Obama had made Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf sort of a envoy for the Barack Obama administration, but, on this day, it was not reported why Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf was going to the Middle East or to what countries or places that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf would be going. What was known on Monday, August 9, 2010, is that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is looking for money--milions of dollars--that can be used to build the mosque, which is informally considered a "cultural center," near the location of the once-existing buildings of the World Trade Center, which had been taken down through an act of terrorism by Islamic Radicals on September 11, 2001. (By the way, a mosque is only open to Muslims, so how can a mosque be a "cultural center," if the so-called "cultural center" is only open to the people of one culture? Also, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf does not condemn the terrorist actions of Hamas. If Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf does not condemn the terrorist actions of Hamas, then Barack Obama must not condemn the terrorist actions of Hamas.)
In at least the summer of 2010, people were opposing the building of a mosque near where the towers for the World Trade Center, New York City, New York, once stood till they were destroyed on September 11, 2010, by Islamic Radicals, and the people who were opposed to the building of the mosque were opposed because they understood who Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is, what he stands for, and why he wants the mosque built so close to where the towers once stood, a main reason of which is to have a monument that praises a victory over the United States of America (the taking down of the towers). On Friday, August 13, 2010, Barack Obama made this statement: "...But let me be clear. As a citizen and as President, I believe that Muslims have the right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country. That includes, that includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan in accordance with local laws and ordinances. This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable...." Here, Barack Obama--through the statement--tried to imply that the people who were opposed to the building of the mosque were trying to infringe on the freedom of region that people have in the country, but the people were not, since they were making no rules or laws that could stop anyone from practicing a religion. In this country, communities have zoning laws that spell out what types of buildings can be built where, such as from houses to factories and from churches to mosques. The issue about the mosque is not once related to religious freedom--it is related to the zoning. Not only did Barack Obama show that he wishes the mosque to be built near the place where the towers of the World Trade Center once exist but also Barack Obama tried to hint that the people who were opposed to the building of the mosque at the proposed location were trying to block people from practicing a religion, which, in essence, makes Barack Obama a man who promotes religious disharmony, if not religious hatred. [You are urged to see the "Katie Couric" section of my document entitled Never Forget These Media "Darlings" ? -- A Guide for the Individual in the United States of America, which can be reached by using this link: Media.]
So, Barack Obama's father was a Muslim, and Barack Obama's stepfather was a Muslim, and other relatives of Barack Obama's are Muslims, and associates of Barack Obama's are Muslims, and on Thursday, August 19, 2010, the White House Press Secretary pressed the issue that Barack Obama is a "Christian," making statements related to a poll from the Pew Research Center about whether or not people thought Barack Obama was a Muslim, which had been released to the public earlier in the day. The White House Press Secretary--Bill Burton--made such comments to reporters on Air Force One as "The president is obviously a Christian" and "He communicates with his religious adviser every single day. There's a group of pastors that he takes counsel from on a regular basis. And his faith is very important to him, but it's not something that is a topic of conversation every single day." Bill Burton's two statements (under consideration in this paragraph) provided no proof that Barack Obama is "obviously" a "Christian," and Bill Burton's two statements noted that Barack Obama has a "religious adviser" but Bill Burton's two statements did not note what type a "religious adviser" Barack Obama has, such as a "priest" or a "pastor" or a Rabbi, and Bill Burton's two statements did not note what the topics of conversation were and are between Barack Obama and the "religious adviser," which may have nothing to do with Christianity, and Bill Burton's two statements did not note what the purpose of the "group of pastors" was and is, and Bill Burton's two statements did not make it clear whether it is "Christian faith" that is important to Barack Obama or some other type of faith that is important to Barack Obama. Remember: For about twenty years, Barack Obama was a member of a church--headed by Reverend Jeremiah Wright--that surely did not promote the values of Christianity and that surely did promote racial hatred and even did promote hatred for the United States of America.
* * * Incidents * * *
Since the 1979, some people who subscribe to the Islamic faith have been at war with the United States of America; I start the period with the take over of the U.S. Embassy in Iran by people in Iran (it took place from November 4, 1979, to January 20, 1981, and is called, for one, the Iran Hostage Crisis). Some of the people who have been or are at war with the United States of America--in what can be called a Holy War--are sometimes violent terrorists, who are small in numberer than those who are fighting a stealth war against the United States of America. Some of the violent persons have made attacks directly on people in the United States of America, and, here, I note several of the well-publicized violent attacks on the United States of America to show that evil does exist in some people.
On February 23, 1993, a bomb exploded in the basement of the World Trade Center, New York City, New York, and the bombing killed six persons and injured 1,050, and it is expected Al Qaeda was involved, but it is known that that ten persons, one of whom was Sheik Omar Abdel Roahman, were convicted of being a part of the bombing team.
On September 11, 2001, nineteen al-Qaeda members used planes to attack the United States of America--two planes hit the World Trade Center, New York City, New York, one plane hit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and one plane crashed in a field Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The event resulted in the death of 2,976 persons, related to about ninety countries, and over 6,000 other persons were injured. At the time, al-Qaeda was led by Osama bin Laden.
On December 22, 2001, a man named Richard Reid, a member of al-Qaeda, attempted to damage a Boeing 767 (American Airlines Flight 63), which is was in flight between Paris (France) and Miami (Florida of the United States of America), using an explosive-like device contained in a shoe.
On May 8, 2007, federal authorities caught six Muslims who had plans to attack people, such as soldiers, at Fort Dix, Burlington County, New Jersey.
Fort Hood, Texas, was the site of a terrorist attack on November 5, 2009, when a man named Major Nidal Malik Hassan shot and killed about a dozen persons and shot and wounded about two-dozen other persons, and this man believed highly in strict Islam.
On December 10, 2009, Security Managemented report that five Muslim Americans had been captured the previous day in Pakistan, where they, it seemed, hope to get terrorist training and meet up with extremist Muslims (By the way, the BBC reported on December 10, 2009, that Adam Khatib, 23, a man who was part of a terrorist cell based in Pakistan, was sentenced to life in prison for conspiracy related to planning a terrorist attack).
Incidentally, since the early 1980s, there have been a number of terrorist attacks against Americans or American soldiers around the world, and one of the incidents was the attack on The U.S.S. Cole in Aden, Yemen, on October 12, 2000.
On December 25, 2009, around the eleven o'clock hour in the morning, a man named Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, 23, a Nigerian national, was one of 278 passengers on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 (an Airbus 330), which was in the air above the Detroit area, Michigan, and Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab set off a bomb-like device, which caused a small fire, and, at the time, it seemed the device was designed to explode.
On Saturday, May 1, 2010, some illegal aliens--violators of U.S. law--took part in protests around the country against Arizona, which had recently enacted an immigration-type law similar with federal law, and the law gave police in Arizona more help in dealing with illegal aliens (and information about the law can be seen in my document entitled Illegal Aliens and Immigration: The Focus is Protecting the Home--the United States of America, which can be reached by using this Illegal link), and, on this day, Barack Obama gave a speech at the "Big House" of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, where the 2010 graduation event was taking place, and, also on this day, a man attempted to set off a bomb-like device in Times Square in New York City, New York, and that person who would be directly charged with the attempted bombing--Faisal Shahzad (a naturalized U.S. citizen whose heritage is tied to Pakistan)--would be taken into custody on May 3, 2010.
Note: Over the next two days or so after the event took place, a number of "liberals" speculated that the suspect of the event was probably someone like a right-wing extremist, hoping to link or liken "tea-party" people to terrorists in the minds of people who saw or heard the liberals' making their statements, and, for example, on Monday, May 3, 2010, the mayor of New York City, New York--Michael Bloomberg--did an interview with Katie Couric of CBS-TV. At one point during the interview, Michael Bloomberg said, "...If I had to guess twenty-five cents, this would be exactly that--somebody...." Katie Couric interrupted him by saying, "A home grown." Michael Bloomberg continued on, "Home grown, maybe, a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like, ah, the health-care bill or a something. It could be anything...." [Between the spring of 2009 and March 2010, American citizens--who learned how bad the proposed pieces of legislation for a health-care bill were--protested against the enacting of any health-care bill that contained what was being proposed.]
Note: Contessa Brewer (a "liberal" and a staffer of MSNBC) was a guest The Stephanie Miller Show, which is a radio hosted by Stephanie Miller, who is a "liberal," on May 4, 2010, and at one point, Contessa Brewer made this statement: "...The thing is that and, and I get frustrated, and, and I would, there's part of me that was hoping this was not gong to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country, because there are a lot of people who want to use, um, terrorist intent to justify, ah, writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way...they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry and, and so there was part of me that was really hoping this would not be the case...." [Contessa Brewer showed herself to be truly a defective woman. What type of person was she hoping for? Was she hoping for a white guy involved with the tea-party movement?]
On Monday, April 15, 2013, Boston was the site of another "Boston Marathon," a running race, and the day happened to be "Patriots' Day" at Boston. During the race, two bombs exploded near the finish line for the event at around 2:50 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time), and the bombs killed three persons and injured over 180 persons. Work by police and the FBI and the other police-type agencies soon began to hunt down the person or the persons who had been involved in setting up the bombs. Later in the week of Monday, April 15, 2013, investigators came up with two suspects in the bombings, though not with the names at first, using video recordings, and images of the suspects were released to the public, and investigators later learned the names of their suspects--Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (who was Tamerlan's younger brother). Early on Friday, April 19, 2013, some police-type persons who were in Watertown, Massachusetts, caught up with two persons who seemed to be Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and a gun battle took place, and, for one, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed, and the other suspect--who it seemed was Dzhokhar Tsarnaev--got away. Later in the day--Friday, April 19, 2013--police were searching for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Watertown, Massachusetts, and, in the evening, they had surrounded him, and at about 8:44 p.m., the public learned Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had been caught [by the way, one of the first persons, if not the first person, to report the capture was Mark R. Levin, who announced capture events live during his nationally syndicated radio show, based on police-scanner information]. Overall the American public learned Tamerlan Tsarnaev (26 years of age) and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (19 years of age) had come from Chechnya about ten years previous and both young men had ties to radical Islam. [Note: The American public learned that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had gone to Russia in 2011 and had visited a mosque and that Russia (which had been fighting radical Islamists for many years) had warned the FBI (in the U.S.A.) that the FBI should investigate Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and that the FBI had interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev but had failed to treat Tamerlan Tsarnaev as a potentially big future problem.]
* * * Documentaries * * *
This section provides information about a few of the documentaries that have put together to show what Islamic Radicals are like, who some of the Islamic Radicals are, where Islamic Radicals come from, and where some of the Islamic Radicals are in this country. These are documentaries are not the types that would ever to be shown on main broadcast outlets or networks, and some people might call them inflammatory. However, well-known people have promoted them or are seen in them, such as Tom Ridge, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives (related to Pennsylvania) from 1995 to 2001 and who was the first head of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. I present these since they do have useful information, and if I were not to present them to you, you might not become aware of them.
Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West:
In 2005, the public became exposed to a film entitled Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West, which is associated with the Clarion Fund. This film is a collection of video from Arab television and Iranian television, and it has interviews with former terrorists and with persons who can be called terrorist experts, such as Alan Dershowitz, Steve Emerson, and Caroline Glick. It is still available.
The Third Jihad: Radical Islam's Vision for America:
"This film is not about Islam. It is about the threat of radical Islam. Only a small percentage of the world's 1.3 Muslims are radical. This film is about them."--These words are provided at the open of a documentary film entitled The Third Jidah: Radical Islam's Vision for America. The 72-minute-long film is narrated by an American Muslim man, Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, and it was released by PublicScope Films for theatrical release in October 2008. In December 2009, the Web site related to the film noted: "...In contrast to the use of 'violent jihad' and terror to instill fear in 'non-believers,' The Third Jihad introduces the concept of 'cultural jihad' as a means to infiltrate and undermine our society from within." Some of the interviewees seen in this film are Tom Ridge, Ayaan Hirsi Ali (a woman associated with the American Enterprise Institute), and Walid Phares. In December 2009, http://www.thethirdjihad.com was the main address to learn more about the documentary, and, on December 10, 2009, I found a 30-minute version, which could be seen on the Internet, and it was at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-864522917532871834#.
Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S.:
It was on February 11, 2009, that Homegrown Jihad: The Terrorist Camps Around the U.S. was released, being shown at the Landmark Theater in Washington, D.C. This film talks about Radical Muslims who are in America and, for example, the 35 training camps for Radical Islamists or people who can be called "Soliders of Allah" that exist in the country, such as the group known as Muslims in America, which is led by Sheikh Mubarak Gilani. This documentary was put together by PRB Films and The Christian Action Network, and it can be ordered from The Christian Action Network. By the way, it notes statements by Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, such as: "We are fighting to destroy the enemy. We are dealing with evil at its roots and its roots in America" and "Act like you are his friend. Then kill them."
Islam Rising: A Call to One World Ummah
It was in 2010 that the film became available on DVD. By the way, "Ummah" means "domination." Really, this is a four part series, and the parts are "Dawah: The Duty to Conquer," "Ideology, Sharia & Jihad," "The Sword of Terrorism," and "The Mosque: Its Many Faces." This series was produced by Caryl Productions, and some of the persons interviewed in the production are Brigitte Gabriel and Walid Shoebat.
* * * An Interview with Holder * * *
Around May 13, 2010, the Attorney General of the United States of America was Eric Holder, who had been appointed to his job by Barack Obama in 2009. On Thursday, May 13, 2010, Attorney General Eric Holder had to testify before the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives. At one point, U.S. Representative Lamar Smith (a Republican related to Texas) was interviewing Eric Holder, and the subject was recent terrorist attempts, such as the most-recent event of May 1, 2010, which was tied to a man named Faisal Shahzad. I now present a text version of some of the interview (and you will see that several times I use the "..." indication, which means some text is missing, and most of my reasons for using "..." is the two men were speaking at the same time):
Lamar Smith: "...In the case of all three attempts in the last year, the terrorists' attempts, the one of which was successful, those individuals have had ties, ah, to Radical Islam. Eh, do you feel, ah, that these individuals, um, might have been incited to take the action that they did, ah, because of Radical Islam?"
Eric Holder: "Because of?"
Lamar Smith: "Radical Islam."
Eric Holder: "There are a variety of reasons why I think, ah, people, um, have taken these actions. Um...one I think you have to look at each individual case. I mean, we're in the process now of talking to, ah, Mr. Shahzad to try to understand what it is that drove him, ah, to take the...."
Lamar Smith: "But Radical Islam could have been one of the reasons?"
Eric Holder: "There are a variety of reasons why...."
Lamar Smith: "...But was Radical Islam one of them?"
Eric Holder: "There are a variety of reasons why people do these things. Some of them are potentially religious...."
Lamar Smith: "...But all I'm asking is, if you think among those variety of reasons, Radical Islam might have been one of the reasons, ah, that the individuals took the steps that they did?"
Eric Holder: "...You say 'Radical Islam.' I mean, I think those people who espouse a, a version...."
Lamar Smith: "Are you uncomfortable attributing any of their actions to Radical Islam? It sounds like...."
Eric Holder: "I don't want to say anything negative about the religion that is...."
Lamar Smith: "No, no. I'm not talking about a religion. I'm talking about 'Radical Islam.' I'm not talking about the general religion."
Eric Holder: "Right. And I'm saying that a person, like Anwar al-Awalki, for instance, who has a version of Islam that is not consistent with the teachings...."
Lamar Smith: "...Could Radical Islam have motivated these individuals to take the steps they did?"
Eric Holder: "I certainly think that it's possible that people who espouse a radical version of Islam have had an ability to have an impact on people like Mr. Shahzad."
Lamar Smith: "Okay. Could it have been the case in one of these three instances?"
Eric Holder: "Could that have been the case?"
Lamar Smith: "Yeah. Again, could one of these three individuals have been incited by Radical Islam? Apparently, you feel that they could have been."
Eric Holder: "Well, I think potentially incited by people who, um, who have a view of Islam that is inconsistent with..."
Lamar Smith: "...It's hard to get an answer yes or no...."
That ends my presentation of the interview, and you should be able to see that Eric Holder was dodging the topic of "Radical Islam," and Eric Holder represents Barack Obama.
* * * Sean Hannity Interviews David Horowitz * * *
On Friday, May 14, 2010, Sean Hannity interviewed David Horowitz on The Sean Hannity Show, which is a nationally syndicated radio. This David Horowitz founded the David Horowitz Freedom Center and is considered a conservative writer. Here is a portion of the interview, which is presented in text form:
David Horowitz: "It was just last--this week."
Sean Hannity: "Oh, okay, this week. It was in San Diego."
David Horowitz: "On Monday."
Sean Hannity: "And, and, ah, apparently, con, confessing to you that they wanted a second Holocaust and would not condemn Hamas, whose charter calls for the extinction of Israel."
David Horowitz: "Exactly, this woman got up and she said and asked me exactly the question you asked me. Ah, she said, dah, she's a member of the Muslim Students' Association and how, how can I say that they're connected to the Muslim Brotherhood...."
Sean Hannity: "Let me, let me play the tape, and then this way you'll have a better time explaining it after people hear it. Is that all right with you?"
David Horowitz: "Go right ahead."
Sean Hannity (talking to a member of this staff): "Okay. Hit it!"
At this point, Sean Hannity played an audio clip:David Horowitz: "...You, ah, condemn Hamas here and now?"Sean Hannity: "Wow!"
Woman: "I'm sorry. What?"
David Horowitz: "Do you condemn Hamas...."
Woman: "Would I condemn Hamas?"
David Horowitz: "...as a terrorist organ--a genocidal organi?"
Woman: "Are you asking me to put myself on a cross? If I say something, I'm sure that I will be arrested for reasons of homeland security. So, if you could just please answer my question."
David Horowitz: "If you condemn Hamas, Homeland Security will arrest you?"
Woman: "If I support Hamas--'cause your question forces me to condemn Hamas--so I support Hamas, I look really bad...."
David Horowitz: "If you don't condemn Hamas, obviously, you support it. Case closed!"
[Here, there seemed to be a portion of the real incident missing, as if something like a reaction from the audience was missing.]
David Horowitz: "I'm a Jew. The head of Hezbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn't have to hunt us down globally. For or against it?"
Woman: "For it!"
David Horowitz: "Okay, what you have to understand exactly--now, how did I know to do that? Because I spoke at the University of California, Santa Barbara, last year, dur, during a similar week, and there were fifty members of the Muslim Students' Association--all students. And you will notice this, this, I, I, I'm sure this young woman is American born. Um, Muslim and Arab though she is, she speaks, you know, per, perfect English. Um, I spoke at the University of California, San De, ah, Santa Barbara, fifty members of the--I could tell...."
Sean Hannity: "By the way, they ran me out of town when I started my radio career, in case you're interested. Just a little historical fact there, David, but go ahead."
David Horowitz: "All right. Um, they're sitting in the audience, and, and I spoke for an hour, and I kept saying, 'Will you condemn Hamas and, and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations?' Um, and not one of them would do it. And then the first question--that was the President of the Muslim, um, Students' Association--and I asked him, 'Would you condemn Hezbollah?'" And he said that's too complicated for a yes-or-no answer. Just, just like Eric Holder." (David Horowitz chuckled.)
Sean Hannity: "..It, it's...."
David Horowitz: "...I said...."
Sean Hannity: "No, it's a 'checkmate moment,' because here's the problem, David, and, and without going deep into the history, Hamas' charter calls for the destruction of Israel."
David Horowitz: "Well...exactly!..."
Sean Hannity: "...the state of Israel!"
David Horowitz: "...says the charter quotes the prophet Mohammad saying the day of redemption will only come when Muslims fight Jews and kill them when the Jews hide behind the rocks and the trees, and the rocks and the trees cry out, 'Oh, Muslim, there's a Jew hidin' behind me, come kill him.' Now, that statement was put--it's, it's, today, is on the University of Southern California Web site...."
* * * Sean Hannity Interviews Andy McCarthy * * *
A man named Andrew McCarthy had a new book show up for purchase in bookstores on Monday, May 24, 2010, and the book was entitled The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America. On the same day, Sean Hannity, the host of the nationally syndicated radio show entitled The Sean Hannity Show, interviewed Andrew McCarthy on the show about the book and radical Islam, terrorists, and the wish by believers of Islam to, for one, install Sharia into Western societies, such as the United States of America. This section provides a portion of the interview in text form, and I present portions of the interview through ... parts:
Here is part one:
Andrew McCarthy: "Well, you know, I ultimately come out, ah, to say that I think we need to call the problem 'Islamism' rather than Islam, but I want to do that with my eyes open. The, the unavoidable thing that we continue to avoid, low these many years, is that there is a connection that can't be purged, can't be bleached out between Islam doctrine--ah, the commands of the, ah, of Quran--the Hadid*, and other parts of the body of Islamic doctrine--ah, and the terrorist acts that are committed by Muslims. And, you know, we can try to pretend that it's about, dah, Israel or Abu Ghraib or, ah, the cartoons or whatever excuse that we're using this week, but the people who carry out these acts and, more importantly--and this is, this is I think what the book is really about--ah, the people who agree with them on the bottom line of implementation Sharia and Islamizing societies, ah, where their disagreement is about, is about the method--Should we use terrorism or not? But the Islamic movement is much broader than just the terrorist. But whether you're talking about the terrorist or the Islamist, um, they're in agreement about the same basic things, and they find those basic things, ah, in the Islamic scriptures. Ah, and that is what is propelling them to act. Now, there are a number of people in the world who don't want to live--who are Muslims--who don't want to live under Sharia Law, ah, and who want to embrace the modern world. Um, the unfortunate thing about them--and I think the best way to say this is--they are a lot of moderate Muslim people, but Islam itself is not a moderate doctrine, and it is the doctrine that catalyzes, ah, both the movement to Islamize our society and, more narrowly, the terrorist attacks that we've been facing for twenty years." [* = "Hadid" may be wrong, but I know nothing about Arabic and such.]
Here is part two:
Andrew McCarthy: "Right. You know, this is a big problem we have, Sean, because it's, it's not a religion as we come to think of religion in the West. We, we in the West, I think, think of religion, ah, as a, as a set of spiritual guidelines, and we're trained, we reared to think of, ah, the Christian tradition of, you know, Render unto Caesar what is Caesar and unto, unto God what is God's. We can separate those realms. Um, Islam, although it's a religion and although it does contain, ah, these spiritual elements--I mean it does have, ah, it does have some doctrinal viewpoints that we would regard as spiritual or religious. Ah, it's much, much more ambitious than that. It has a legal code. It wants to control how property is passed along or inherited. It, it would set up, ah, an Islamic state. It really does guide down to a, a very granular level almost all the activities of life, including many which we would not regard at all as spiritual."
Here is part three:
Andrew McCarthy: "Sure. The, the, ah, the purpose, the most important thing is, is--What is Jihad? We've had a big, you know, a big debate in this country for years about, dah, you know, one side which says that, dah, 'It's strictly the military mission to fight Holy War, including committing acts of terrorism, in order to establish, ah, Islamic society.' Then, you have on the other side, um, people who are basically reformist thinkers who want to say, 'No, no, no, that's a, that's an old-fashioned way of looking at Jihad. What Jihad really has become over time is the internal struggle that each person wages to become a better human being.' And the truth of the matter is that it, it, Jihad is neither one of those things--at least, not exclusively. Jihad is the mission in Islam to spread Sharia. Sharia is the Muslim legal code. Ah, it is Muslim law. And it is deemed as Islamic thinkers to be the necessary pre-condition for Islamizing a society. And the big debate among Muslims, particularly Islamists, is whether terrorism is the best method for, ah, for furthering the mission of installing Sharia. There's actually a pretty healthy debate in Islamist circles, ah, these days about whether, ah, terrorists have kind of outlived their usefulness..."
Here is part four:
Andrew McCarthy: "Right. What there, what we need to understand as Americans is all these people agree with each other, you know, whether they're the terrorist or the non-terrorist Islamist, they all want Sharia to be installed. Um, but there is this other method. You mention Dawah. That's the, ah, missionary work, ah, the way Islam is spread, ah, by essentially for our point of view by non-terrorist methods, and, ah, you know, I think, Bob Spencer when he was with you last week, um--he wrote a book called Stealth Jihad--and I think that's probably the best way of describing what, ah, Dawah is. It's every way that Sharia gets, ah, basically, ah, in, insinuated into our society and into our institutions, ah, short of terrorist attacks. And, you know, frankly, they work hand in hand with the terrorist. Their agreement is about methodology...."
Here is part five:
Sean Hannity: "...What about women? Don't they want their freedom?"
Andrew McCarthy: "Well, Sean, you know, freedom's a funny thing, the, ah, or funny word. When we talk about freedom and when they talk about freedom in the Muslim world, we're not even speaking the same language. We even have a different word for it. Um, their, the Islamic concept of freedom is perfect submission to Allah. Ah, and what they, the way they interpret it is that, by following Sharia, human beings live the most perfect prescribed, the most perfect existence as it's been prescribed directly by Allah. The, ah, the Muslim doctrine--the Quran, for example--um, was, is deemed to be the verbatim word of Allah. You know, it was directly narrated to, ah, the Prophet Mohammad. Um, their idea of freedom is entirely different and based, based on, ah, the way freedom is understood in the Quran. So that when we're talking about, you know, freedom for women and they're talking about freedom for women, we're not even talking about the same thing."
Here is part six:
Andrew McCarthy: "You're absolutely explaining it properly, and, you know, the, the, the incident of, of this mosque at the ground-zero site is a, an interesting indicator, and interesting instance of the Muslim Brotherhood strategy that really has been in place for over eighty years but which, ah, Muslim Brotherhood theorist like Yusuf Qaradawi, who is probably the most influential Sunni Muslim Sheikh in the world, ah, the strategy that they've prescribed for years, which is called 'voluntary apartheid.' Ah, and the idea is to set up these Muslim enclaves. You know, you, you, you get a small community--you work from the ground up--um, and you, you try persuade the, ah, the country or the city or the town or whatever that, um, you should be able to conduct your affairs under Muslim law in that community."
Here is part seven:
Andrew McCarthy: "Well, Sean, I think where you and I might part company is I, I, I'm sure that the desire to be free is actually in our DNA. I think, history shows that what all people have is a desire to be safe and that the idea of freedom, particularly as it's been, ah, as it's been experienced in the West and even more particularly in the United States, is a fairly novel belief in human history. I think that, dah, what people want is security, and when they taste freedom, ah, particularly as, as it's been, ah, has been available to them in the West, ah, that opens a whole new area of possibilities for them, but that's not something that they've lived with in the Muslim world--they have a tradition of not living with it."
Here is part eight:
In answering a question about Islam and the left-wing people in America, Andrew McCarthy said, "...But they agree on a couple of very important things. Ah, one of them is that the biggest obstacle to both their aspirations, ah, is American constitutional democracy, and, in particular, I think they both agree--for, for different reasons perhaps, but they both agree--that individual liberty, ah, is a big problem for them. It's, ah, it, it's essentially the thing, ah, the, the desire that people particularly American have, ah, that runs counter to all their grand plans for our society."
* * * The Push for Sharia Courts in the U.S.A. * * *
Living in the United States of America are people who would like to install Sharia-based courts into the court system of the United States of America, and one such person is an Imam known as Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, who created the American Society of Muslim Advancement and who wrote the 2004 book entitled What's Right with Islam: a New Vision for Muslims and the West (which would be reissued with a new title in 2006 and with a new title and in the Malay language in 2007). On Friday, May 21, 2010, two guests on The Sean Hannity Show, the nationally syndicated radio show, were Robert Spencer (of Jihad Watch) and Debra Burlingame (who co-founded the organization known as 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America), and they talked about Feisal Abdul Rauf. One thing that Debra Burlingame noted, when talking about Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, was that he thinks "the United States is a Muslim country, and it's, it's a Muslim country whether Muslims live here or not, because it is ruled by Allah. Allah, um, is the, the God of, of America...." During the interview, Sean Hannity brought out the subject that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf wants to set up a Sharia court system in the country, and Debra Burlingame, at one point, said Iman Feisal Abdul Rauf wants to have "a dual-track justice system--you have the civil courts, and you have the Sharia courts, and those would be for Muslims, dealing with virtually every matter of their life." At one point during the interview, Robert Spencer reminded listeners that "Shiria is a comprehensive system that covers every aspect of human behavior, every aspect of life. It is a political system as well as a social system for the whole of society...." And, later, Debra Burlingame noted, if Sharia were to be incorporated into American life, that "...this affects freedom of assembly, freedom of speech. Um, it's, it's, it, really is, um, ah, a huge, um, it's derogation and abrogation of our, our, um, violation of our Bills of Rights. And, you know, it, it, this Imam doesn't like to talk about this. If you say the word 'Sharia' in the room with him, he'll leave. He doesn't want to confront this, ah, and he's, I believe, relying on, ah, the public's ignorance of what Sharia actually is. Sharia is just an Arab word for, um, Islamic law. And, um, he's, he's advocating this. When he creates this Sharia, um, Sharia index project, this is for the purpose, this is a worldwide project where he rates countries on how well they adhere to Sharia. That's his way of saying Sharia is a good thing, and it should be all over the world, including this Muslim county, the United States of America."
Note: Around May 2010, more people in the United States of America were beginning to learn, such as through The Sean Hannity Show (a nationally syndicated radio show), that the American Society for Muslim Advancement and the Cordoba Initiative planned to build a mosque near where the towers of the World Trade Center had once stood (in New York City, New York), and it was a project that had already become public knowledge in 2009, and on Wednesday, May 5, 2010, members of the two entities appeared before the Community Board of Lower Manhattan to present the project--"Cordoba House"--and the board voted unanimously to support the project, which has already gotten under way, since the two entities had already acquired land for the mosque, and, by the way, no approval from the Community Board of lower Manhattan was actually needed for the project to be started (Bliman, Nicole. "Mosque to go up near New York's ground zero." CNN.com, 7 May 2010, 3:19 a.m. EDT; Schilling, Chelsea. Islamic mosque built at 9/11 at Ground Zero." WorldNetDaily, 17 December 2009, 8:10 p.m. Eastern.).
Note: It was in September 2008 that rulings of Sharia courts were made binding in Britain, and some of the first official courts were in Birmingham, Bradford, London, Manchester, and Warwickshire, and what the entities were considered were "arbitration tribunals" (Sharia-based courts or arbitration tribunals had been passing on Sharia judgments since August 2007), and on Sunday, June 20, 2010, there was a rally in London in which Muslim protesters were urging that Sharia law be adopted into the law system of Britain, and the English Defense League, which opposes Sharia law, held a counter-rally at the same time.
* * * Oklahoma and Sharia Law * * *
In essence, Sharia Law (or Islamic Law) can be traced back to circa 570-632 A.D. and the days of Muhammad, who is considered by those who believe in the Islamic religion as a messenger from God, and Sharia is religious law for one group of people. In the United States of America, law is designed not on one particular religion, and so the laws apply to all types of people--Muslims, Christians, Hindus, et cetera--equally, and that means that everyone can be treated equally in court matters or business matters. Those who are pushing Sharia Law on the country, such as members of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (or CAIR), are pushing the idea that people of other religions should follow the rules of Sharia in the United States of America, which would, for example, make a Jewish person subject to the ways of Sharia, though Jews do not uphold the ways of Sharia. Some of the ways of Sharia are, generally speaking, a man can have up to four wives, a Muslim woman may only marry a Muslim man, the slaughtering of animals must be done in a way at relates to Sharia rules, a person may not gamble, a person may not drink liquor, pigs may not be eaten, and a woman must be completely covered except for the hands and the face when in public. It can be said that, in the summer of 2010, in Oklahoma, State Representative Rex Duncan (a Republican) started the pushed for the passing of an amendment to the state constitution (of Oklahoma) referred to as the Oklahoma International Law Amendment, and the purpose of the amendment was to stop judges in local courts of Oklahoma and state courts in Oklahoma from making decisions based on international laws (or "law of nations")--such as Sharia Law. On November 2, 2010, the people of Oklahoma voted on the amendment, and the amendment passed by about 70-percent "yes" to about 30-percent "no.'" Then on November 9, 2010, Federal Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrande (of the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals) set down a temporary restraining order on the new amendment (temporarily blocking the law from going into effect), which had come about from a lawsuit filed by Muneer Awad, a member of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (or CAIR), whose position was that the law violated freedom of speech, and it was noted that a hearing would be held on November 22, 2010. What this incident shows is that CAIR is most certainly pushing to have Sharia Law--a set of laws for one group of people--become incorporated into the law system of the United States of America and for all peoples the country.
* * * A Judge Looks to Shariah to Make a Decision * * *
Although it can be said that the United States of America was founded on Judeo-Christian values, the country really is based on the individual and not a religion, and, generally speaking, the law system and laws are based on commonsense ways of man developed over years and years and are designed to be applied to all individuals equally, no matter what religion a person has. In other words, a person who follows Hinduism is treated in court with rules that apply to a person who follows Judaism or Christianity or no religion. It has been the rule that the law system of the country does not make decisions based on one particular region, because to do so would be bad for all individuals and would be discriminatory. Yet, people are pushing for Sharia--a radical religion--to be the basis for rulings in court cases. For example, on March 3, 2011, a Hillsborough Circuit Judge named Richard Nielsen made a ruling in a case involving the Islamic Education Center of Tampa (Florida) and the removal of some men as trustees of the entity. In one part of the ruling, Judge Richard Nielsen noted, "This case will proceed under Ecclesiastical Islamic Law." The ruling finally became a national story on March 22, 2011, when the St. Petersburg Times published a story entitled "Judge orders use of Islamic law in Tampa lawsuit over mosque leadership." What has happened is a judge, who should only be involved is using law related to The United States Constitution and other established law of the United States of America has chosen to make one particular religion superior over, in essence, the laws established in the country over decades--which have no special tie to any one religion. Now, it can be argued well by me that, for example, a man who might call himself an Apache or follow Buddhism could be subject to a decision related to Sharia law in some lawsuit in the future. That is creeping nonsense and creeping tyranny tied to Shariah.
* * * Extra Information * * *
A previous section gives you information about documentaries that show the badness of Radical Islam, and this section expands on it by showing information about groups are are fighting against those who are trying to push Sharia Law and Radical Islam on the United States of America.
It was on December 11, 2009, that I saw for the first time an article entitled "A rare look at secretive Brotherhood in America," which was published online by the Chicago Tribune on September 19, 2004. The article talks about the U.S. chapter of the International Muslim Brotherhood, whose member are working to create Islamic states in the world, such as in Europe and the Middle East and change the United States of America into an Islamic state, which no longer follows and has The U.S. Constitution. The article has information from Ahmed Elkadi, who was once the physician to King Faisal of Saudi Arabia and who talks about the organization and its motives, and a former member of the U.S. Brotherhood (Mustafa Saied) gives this statement--"They have this idea that Muslims come first, not that humans come first." By the way, in this article the term "conservative" is used, but the term does not have any relation to "conservatism" as it is in the United States of America, which is based on the ideas of The U.S. Constitution; in the article, "conservative" has the meaning of following strict Islamic ways. By reading the article, I learned a bit about recruiting done by the Brotherhood, such as through prayer groups, and that members must pay three-percent of their income to the entity. I say that the article is something that you should read, and it is on the Internet. (Ahmed-Ullah, Noreen S., and Sam Roe, Laurie Cohen, Evan Osnos, Stephen Franklin, and Hossam el-Hamalawy. "A rare look at secretive Brotherhood in America." Chicago Tribune, 19 September 2004, p. NA. (http://www./chicagotribune.com....))
Note: You are urged to see my document entitled Conservatism for Children and What Conservatism Means, a link to which exists at the end of this document.
On December 12, 2009, I did some hunting on the Internet about Sharia Financing or Shariah Compliance Financing, as I had done the day before, and I came across a video related to the subject. The video was made on November 6, 2008, and the video, which was about ten-minutes long, had Frank Gaffney (of the Coalition to Stop Shariah) speaking before an audience at the National Press Club, and he was talking about the bad nature of Shariah-compliant financing and how it will undermine the financial system of the United States of America. For more information about Shariah-compliant financing, you are encouraged to see www.usastopshariah.org. At the Web site for "USA--Stop Shariah," I found, on December 12, 2009, this statement: "The Coalition to Stop Shariah participants include a growing group of public policy, interfaith and grassroots organizations committed to banning Shariah Compliant Finance and Shariah Law in the United States of America...." However, it looked as if no material was added in 2009, so the entity may be defunct, but you should still look for the video on the Internet.
Act! for America is a political action group and a nonprofit entity of Americans. A part of the mission statement of this organization, which was founded by Brigitte Gabriel, who had to leave Lebanon in 1989 near the end of the Lebanese Civil War (from 1975 to 1990), is: "...Create a nationwide network of chapters in order to more effectively inform, educate and mobilize Americans regarding the multiple threats of Islamofascism, and what they can and must do to protect themselves and their country against this determined enemy...." At the Web site for the entity, which is www.actforamerica.org, a person can get, for one, news related to what Radical Islamists are doing in this country. By the way, Brigitte Gabriel is the author of the books entitled They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America (2006) and They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It (2008) and founded the entity known as American Congress For Truth
The Middle East Media Research Institute was founded in February 1998 and is based in Washington, D.C., and it has offices in big cities in other countries. On December 13, 2009, I went to the Web site of this entity and found this information about a service that it conducts: "...The purpose of the Islamists Websites Monitor Project , which is part of our Jihad & Terrorism Studies Project, is to keep Western audiences informed about the steadily growing phenomenon of jihadist sites on the Internet, which are used by terrorists organizations and their supporters to spread their extreme message and to recruit funds and activists." In essence, the entity is a source of news about Jidahists and their movement. The Web site is http://www.memri.org.
The Center for Security Policy was founded in 1988, and a high-profile member of the organization is Frank Gaffney, who had worked in the Defense Department during the Ronald Reagan administration, and a portion of the mission statement of this organization is: "The Center for Security Policy is a non-profit, non-partisan national security organization that specializes in identifying policies, actions, and resource needs that are vital to American security and then ensures that such issues are the subject of both focused, principled examination and effective action by recognized policy experts, appropriate officials, opinion leaders, and the general public...."
I have found entities made up of Muslims that seem to be strongly against Sharia Law becoming incorporated into the laws of the United States of America or to North America. The Muslim Canadian Congress, which was founded in December 2001, is one; the "who we are" statement of the organization notes: "The Muslim Canadian Congress is a grassroots organization that provides a voice to Muslims who are not represented by existing organizations; organizations that are either sectarian or ethnocentric, largely authoritarian, and influenced by a fear modernity and an aversion to joy." American Islamic Forum for Democracy, which was founded by M. Zuhdi Jasser (M.D.) in March 2003, is yet another entity; a part of the mission statement of this organization is: "...AIFD was formed as an unmistakable expression of American liberty and freedom in an attempt to take back the faith of Islam from the demagoguery of the Islamo-fascists...." And one more entity is Muslims Against Sharia, and two of its goals are "to educate Muslims about dangers presented by islamic religious texts and why Islam must be reformed" and "to educate both Muslims and non-Muslims alike that moderate Muslims are also targets of Islamic Terror."
* * * A Thought to Consider * * *
On Wednesday, June 9, 2010, I was listening to The Sean Hannity Show while I was building two special storage shelves in a garage, using steel angle iron and wood. At one point during the show, a telephone caller put forth the idea that it was very unlikely Sharia Law would be adopted in the United States of America, and I say that the person's idea is defective. Already, the Barack Obama administration has violated The U.S. Constitution, and because the Barack Obama administration has violated The U.S. Constitution, it would be easy for a left-wing-based judge of a court--maybe even a judge on the U.S. Supreme Court--to apply Sharia-type rulings in court cases, and that would set a precedent, and then more left-wing-based judges could take up using Sharia-type rulings. It would not be hard to start putting Sharia Law into the court system of the country--if the attempts to put it in were not opposed and blocked.
* * * The Middle East and Radicals and Riots * * *
On December 17, 2010, a new wave of riots began in Tunisia, and on January 15, 2011, the president of Tunisia, who had held the position since 1987, resigned, and on January 6, 2011, riots to protest the high rise in food prices recently in Algeria began in Algeria, and on January 25, 2011, riots started to take place in Egypt, leading to the death of at least three persons, and on February 1, 2011, the president of Egypt--Hosni Mubarak--said that he would not run for reelection in September 2011, and on February 1, 2001, King Abdullah of Jordan removed the current government of Jordan and appointed a new prime minister in Jordan. The previous sentence--the opening sentence--notes a wave of recent disruptions of "ant"-like societies in the Middle East; "ant"-like societies are those in which a few rule over the masses, such as dictators or kings who have been in power for decades rule over the masses (see my document entitled Conservatives and The United States Constitution Versus Enslavers and Enslavism (Communism, Sharia, Socialism, et cetera), which can be reached by using this link: Enslavism). In early February 2011, I wondered how many of these countries would become more like Iran, based on Sharia and having a Sharia-based government, given how I had heard the Muslim Brotherhood was taking part in at least some of the protesting or riots?
The Muslim Brotherhood supports terrorism and pushes for Sharia to be installed as the way of life in the Middle East and in the West. WorldNetDaily reported on February 1, 2011, that, on January 31, 2011, Frank Wisner (who represented the Barack Obama administration) met with Essam El-Erian (the senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood) in the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt (Klein, Aaron. "U.S. 'held secret meeting with Muslim Brotherhood.'" WorldNetDaily, 1 February 2011, 10:59 a.m. Eastern.), and on January 31, 2011, the Barack Obama administration said that it could support the Muslim Brotherhood being involved in a new government in Egypt if the Muslim Brotherhood would renounce violence and promote the idea of democracy (Morrissey, Ed. "Obama green-lighting Muslim Brotherhood participation in Egyptian government." Hot Air, 1 February 2011, 12:15 p.m.). On Tuesday, February 1, 2011, Barack Obama made a public statement related to Hosni Mubarak's announcement that he would not run for reelection in September 2010, and one thing that Barack Obama said is: "...Now, it is not the role of any other country to determine Egypt's leaders...." (and it must be remembered Barack Obama is a perpetual liar, as is show in the document entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama, which can be reached by using the link at the end of this document).
Here is more news. It was on Wednesday, February 2, 2011, that the president of Yemen--Ali Abdullah Saleh--said that he would not seek another term in office, doing that because of street protests; his time a president started in 1978 and was scheduled to end in 2013. Yemen, a place where al-Qaida exists, is another of the poor "ant"-type society in the Middle East.
Note: The Director of National Intelligence--James Clapper--made this statement to the Intelligence Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday, February 10, 2011: "...We need to speak briefly to the Muslim Brotherhood as an international movement. The term 'Muslim Brotherhood' is a very, is an umbrella term for a variety of movements--ah, in, in the case of Egypt, a very, ah, heterogeneous group, largely seclea, secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried, ah, al-Qaeda as a, a perversion of Islam...." James Clapper gained the job of Director of National Intelligence in August 2010, and James Clapper is either a stupid man, especially in matters related to the Muslim Brotherhood, or a liar--a man hoping to push a lie about the Muslim Brotherhood--and in either case, James Clapper is bad for the country since he is unable to recognize the enemy or will look the other way in matters related to the enemy--the Muslim Brotherhood and all the rest.
* * * Forced Learning of Arabic * * *
If you do not think the Barack Obama administration is working to push Sharia on the country, you should see this story. It was on Monday, February 7, 2011, that parents whose children were in some schools in Mansfield, Texas, unexpectedly learned their school-district managers and the federal government were about to start up an mandatory program in which students in, for example, an elementary school and a middle school had to learn Arabic and learn about Arabic culture, and the school district (Mansfield Independent School District) was one of five school districts in the country that were getting the curriculum pushed on them by the federal government and school managers, and, by the way, at least one-point-three-million dollars of federal money was scheduled to be used to get the program going. It was last summer that the grant related to the Foreign Language Assistance Program had been issued to the school district in Mansfield, Texas, by the U.S. Department of Education. You must clearly understand--the program was designed to be a mandatory program for students. Soon after parents learned about the program, the school district put the program on hold, which does not mean it will not be started up in another way in the future. Incidentally, at this time, the U.S. Department of Education--under the control of Barack Obama--considered Arabic a "language of the future."
* * * Al-Jazeera English * * *
In 1996, Al-Jazeera--a cable network or satellite-fed network--was launched from Qatar in the Middle East, and soon thereafter, sister networks were launched, and, in 2006, an English-language network called "Al-Jazeera English" was launched, and "Al-Jazeera English" was designed for international distribution and even for the United States of America. Since 1996, the Al-Jazeera family of networks has been shown to be anti-Israel and, generally speaking, even by some people as anti-American, though Al-Jazeera English does not show as much anti-American material as, for example, the original Al-Jazeera.
Here is an aside. I have seen "Al-Jazeera," in relation to the English-based network, written number of ways. For example, I have seen it as "Aljazeera" on the Web site for the network. In addition, I have seen it as "al-Jazeera." Be aware there are several ways in which the word is spelled in English.
Here are some facts of life. Barack Obama has shown he is anti-Israel, and Barack Obama has shown he at least somewhat supports Sharia, given that he supported the Sharia-based government of Iran over the citizens in Iran during the election protests of 2009. If people in the Middle East who want to push their Sharia views on the people of the United States of America, those people have to get Al-Jazeera English seen by the people of the United States of America. It is known that Hillary Clinton is at least a socialist, and socialists have a somewhat common bond with those to push Sharia--"enslavism" (and to learn more about "enslavism," you should see my document entitled Conservatives and The United States Constitution Versus Enslavers and Enslavism (or Communism, Sharia, Socialism, et cetera, which can be reached by using this link: Enslavism). Qatar is an country in the Middle East, and about eighty percent of the persons in it are Muslims, and Sharia Law does have a place in society in Qatar; by the way, Skeikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is like a ideological authority for the entity, has been based in Qatar for many years and, for example, in 2011 at least, had a television program on Al-Jazeera known as Life and Islamic Law.
In early 2011, several events took place that drew concern of at least a few persons in the United States of America, and I am one of the persons. On February 14, 2011, Juliette Kayyem, who was then the Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security had an "op-ed" of hers published in The Boston Globe, and the piece urged cable companies in the U.S.A. to pick up and carry and Al-Jazeera English network, and one statement in the article is: "...Not carrying the network sends a message to the Arab world about America's willingness to accept information, unfiltered, from the very region we spend so much time talking about...." (Kayyem, Juliette. "Let us see Al Jazeera." The Boston Globe, 14 February 2011.). Then in late February 2001, three executives of Al-Jazeera English went to the headquarters of Comcast (a big cable company in the country) to urge the cable company to widely carry Al-Jazeera. Then, on March 2, 2011, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified before a subcommittee of the U.S. Senate and promoted that idea that Al-Jazeera was worthwhile, and she said, for example, that when you see the network "...you feel like you're gettin' real news around the clock...."
In the previous paragraph, there is something disturbing. Juliette Kayyem, who supports the Democratic Party as it is today, is involved in "security" for the country. Hillary Clinton, who supports the Democratic Party as it is today, is involved in "security" for the country. Both women promoted public as good a network--"Al-Jazeera English"--that has what could be called at least anti-America bias.
Here is a history note. In 2008, Dave Marash, who had worked on Nightline (a television show on ABC-TV in the United States of America), resigned from Al-Jazeera English. It was reported that Dave Marash resigned because the network had anti-America bias (The Associated Press. "Anchor quits al-Jazeera, cites anti-American tone." Ynetnews.com, 2 March 2008, 09:19.).
Ask yourself some questions. Why would people working to keep citizens of the United States of America safe promote a foreign news entity to the public of the United States of America as some that should be seen? Why would people working to protect the United States of America promote a news entity tied to a country where Sharia does take a part in the daily lives of citizens?
It is not the job of the U.S. Secretary of State or an Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to being promoting any network.

* * * Mark R. Levin Interviews Peter King * * *
Since at least 1900, the U.S. Congress has held many investigative hearings, and some have been about "communists," the Ku Klux Klan, and "The Mob" (Italian-themed gangs), and on Thursday, March 10, 2011 the U.S. Congress--in particular U.S. Representative Peter King (a Republican related to New York)--started a series of hearings on the threat from homegrown Radical Islamists. Later in the day, Peter King--the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives--was guest by telephone on the nationally syndicated radio show entitled The Mark Levin Show, which is hosted by Mark R. Levin (the author of Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto) and which is aired on weekday evenings. The subject of the interview was the hearings, and here is some of what Peter King said:
"...Al-Qaeda is attempting to radicalize Muslim Americans in this country. They realize primarily because of the policies put in place by George Bush and Dick Cheney that it is very difficult to attack from the outside, so they've changed their policy, and they're attempting to recruit and radicalize within the Muslim American community, and they've had success...."
"...We can go through a whole list of, ah, domestic, homegrown domestic terrorists in the last two years. This is a amazingly quick, ah, quick grown threat to the United States. And, dah, I, ah, felt strongly we had to have a hearing into it, and the nonsense was, when I said I wanted to explore the extend of the, ah, radicalization of the Muslim American community, I was called a bigot and racist, 'cause they'd say--Why not investigate all other communities and all other crimes? Ah, and there was this total nonsense. There was barrage of attacks against me. But the fact is the Muslim American community is being radicalized. Again, it's a small percentage of a, of a larger community, but the fact is that terrorists are coming from within the Muslim American community. I want to find out the extent of it and also want to find out what the community itself is doing...."
"...CAIR is an unindicted coconspirator in the Holyland Foundation case. Director Mueller, who is a pretty liberal FBI director, he has ordered that the FBI is not allowed to deal with CAIR because they're so radical. And, yet, they set the agenda here for the opposition to this hearing. Ah, you'd read a press release by CAIR on one day, and...that was picked up by the mainstream media for the rest of the week. So all of these attacks against me and against the hearings and against the, ah, the, ah, committee were, ah, basically--if there was genesis for them--it was CAIR...."
"...But I was disappointed--I guess I shouldn't be--I was disappointed by the extent to which, the extent to which the mainstream media followed the line of radical Islam on this."
More was said, and, for example, Peter King brought up the subject of how radical Muslims are doing recruiting of prisoners--criminals and such--in prisons in the United States of America.
* * * Frank Beckmann Interviews Richard Thompson * * *
Since the 1920s, WJR-AM has been a big-time radio station based in Detroit, Michigan, and since the late 1960s, Frank Beckmann has been a on-air staffer for the station, and around 2012, Frank Beckmann was regularly hosting a talk show called The Frank Beckmann Program on weekdays. On February 29, 2012, Frank Beckmann did an interview with Richard Thompson, the president and chief counsel for the Thomas More Law Center (or TMLC), Ann Arbor, Michigan, and the topic of the interview was Sharia Law and how the use of Sharia Law has been growing in the United States of America. This section of this document provides a text version of the interview or, really, text version of much of the interview.
Frank Beckmann: "...It's something that's been growing."
Richard Thompson: "Yes, it has been. We [TMLC] first got involved back in 2002, when a high school in California, ah, established a three-week course--intensive course--on simulating, ah, Islam, and in that high, in that three-week course, the, ah, students were told, for the next three weeks, you will become a Muslim. They took on Muslim names, wore those, ah, names on I.D. cards hung around their necks. Ah, they learned Muslim prayers. Um, they dressed like Muslims. Ah, and, ah, once a parent found out what happening from one of their, ah, children, ah, they contacted Thomas More Law Center, we got involved. We filed a, a federal lawsuit, ah, in California. That case, ah, was, um, dismissed by the lower-court judge and then dismissed, ah, then that lower-court decision was upheld by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, saying that we don't believe that, just because these, ah, students are told to wear Muslim names, learn Muslim prayers, ah, learn the Five Pillars of Islam that that is a religious exercise...."
Frank Beckmann: "I wonder, I wonder if that court would have felt the same if those students were instructed on, on reciting the "'Our Father' and...."
Richard Thompson: "...Exactly...."
Frank Beckmann: "...and told, and told that they had to wear name tags that, dah called them Pope Pius IV."
Richard Thompson: "Exactly. That was our point, ah, that said, you know, um, if, if Christians tried to do this, right away the court would have said, ah--Violation of the Establishment Clause--the ACLU would have been on their backs. But here is what the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals did. When they affirmed the dismissal, they did it in a non-published opinion, which then could not be used by Christians as precedent. I mean they were pretty tricky about this. And at that, ah, you know, the law has since changed that non-published opinions can be used as, as precedent, but back in 2002, ah, they did that for the specific purpose of not allowing Christians to come in and use their ruling as a precedent to say--Okay, we want to you teach Christianity the same way that you're teaching Islam. So there is a double standard that is going on in our country, and it's been increasing, as you indicated. And, ah, we have to become really concerned because there is, um, and effort by, ah, Muslims in the United States to, ah, become dominant in the sense that they don't want the same constitutional protections for other religions that, dah, ah, we have right now. In fact, dah, the major organizations that you'll see many times in the media--the Council on American-Islamic Relations, ah, ah, CAIR--back in 1998 said to, a, a group of Muslims in California--Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant, the Quran should be the highest authority in America and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth. That is, that is one of the principles of Sharia Law, that they are to be dominant. They divide the, ah, world into two camps. Ah, one the camp of, ah, Islam. And the other ca, ah, camp, the camp war. And they declare war on us. Now, in the United States, they realize that their military could never defeat our, ah, military. So, they've been engaged in what is called the 'Stealth Jihad' or in, internal, ah, subversion. And that's what the Muslim Brotherhood, ah, said, ah, ah, in the 1990s that, dah, they're goin' to defeat America, ah, through their, America's own hands--this internal subversion. And so it's continuing on in the courts, and, as you mentioned, ah, in the Pennsylvania case, where...."
Frank Beckmann: "Yeah, this is, ah--let me, let me explain that one for everybody...."
Richard Thompson: "Okay!"
Frank Beckmann: "...Richard Thompson. What happened in Pennsylvania, there was a Halloween parade in Mechanicsburg, and, dah, you had a number of atheists who were marching in the parade. One of them was, ah, was, ah, in the parade as a Zombie Pope, and, dah, he was not attacked by Catholics. I will, I will tell you that. He was not attacked by anybody. He was a Zombie Pope. Another man marched in the parade--another atheist--marched as a Zombie Mohammed. He was attacked, ah, allegedly by a man named Talaag Elbayomy, ah, a Muslim, who was arrested by police. Now, Mr. Elbayomy, ah, was, ah, taken to court, where, ah, he claimed that he was obligated to attack, ah, this, this Zombie Mohammed because of his culture and his religion. He had to invoke, ah, ah, his defense of, of Muslim, and Sharia Law instructs the believers of, of Islam that they should do that. Well, Judge Mark Martin, who's an Iraq War veteran, who just happened to have converted to Islam, threw the case out and said--Sharia Law should be invoked here because that's what drove the man's opinion. And he said that the real attacker was the man who belittled Mohammed by dressing up as a zombie. And the judge stated that the First Amendment of The Constitution does not permit people to provoke other people. Where do you want to start with that one?"
Richard Thompson (who started off by chuckling): "Well, you handled it pretty well. I mean, the, the outrageous part here was what the judge said during the trial at the conclusion where he issued his, ah, ruling. And as, ah...in this case, as you mentioned, there was a zombie of the pope, with, um...ridiculing Catholics and nothing happened. But the zombie with Mohammed, ah, right way--this individual attacked it. He admitted to the police at the time that he was very upset, and he admitted that there was contact between him and, dah, this, ah, atheist that was wearing the zombie outfit. Now, at the trial, he, ah, admitted he was upset but he denied the contact. The police officer, you know, testified other wor, ah, other words. But the transcript of what this judge said is really the part that is disturbing...."
Frank Beckmann: "He, didn't he, didn't he call the, the fellow who dress up as Mohammed--he called him a 'doofus'?"
Richard Thompson: "Yes. He says it makes you look like a 'doofus'. But said. Here's one of the things that he said from the transcript--um, and now I'm quoting--''I understand you're an atheist, but see Islam is not just a, a religion, it is their, it's their culture, their culture, their essence, their very being. They pray five times a day. To be a good Muslim before you die, you have to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.' And later on he says, ah--'And what you've done is you've completely trashed their essence, their being. They find it very, very, very offensive. I'm a Muslim. I find it offensive. I find what's on the other side of this sign very offensive.' Speaking about the sign that Mohammed on it. 'But you have that right, but you are way outside your bounds of the First Amendment rights.' So what we have there is Sharia Law trumps the First Amendment to The Constitution in this judge's eyes, and that is the disturbing problem, and that is what is disturbing, ah, nationally where several judges have used Sharia Law to, ah, find individuals innocent of crimes, saying--Well, because they were Muslim and because they were operating under Sharia Law, we find no criminal intent. There was a case in New Jersey where the judge dismissed a case because of, of...." [Editor's note: The material attributed to the judge may be quoted partially incorrectly because of how it was read.]
Frank Beckmann: "The guy beat up his wife!"
Richard Thompson: "The guy beat up his wife. And the judge dismissed it, saying--Well, under...under Sharia Law, he has a right to do that. And dismissed the case. Of course, the Court of Appeals threw it out. But what you find is this slow, um, ah, incursion of Sharia Law into the United States, and that's why several states now--I don't know how many--have adopted statues, ah, that prohibit the use of Sharia Law in a generic way, they say you cannot foreign law or transnational law where, ah, it violates fundamental rights, ah, of Americans under The Constitution."
Frank Beckmann: "Yeah. Thirteen states have the now. Oklahoma passed it, but, dah, the courts overturned it. Oklahoma cannot have a, ah, anti-Sharia Law like this when there's no evidence that Sharia Law is being used...."
Richard Thompson: "Well, you know, that, that says, ah, you have to wait till the bar, the horse comes out of the barn before you can shut the barn door. What, you know, what I would say is, if you see, ah, evidence across the country of what is going on, certainly a state and its citizens--this was a constitutional amendment that was voted on and supported by seventy percent of the people of Oklahoma--they don't have to wait for some, ah, incursion into The Constitution before they protect The Constitution. They can see what happened in New Jersey, they can see, you know, what's happening across the country, and they can take, you know, um, steps, anpi, anticipatory steps to prevent it from happening in Locahonam [*], Oklahoma. But what we have are federal judges, who, based on, ah, political correctness or their personal ideologies, are not allowing the people to protect themselves against Sharia Law. Now, you know, they will say--Well, this is a religion. But the, the judge immediately, ah, ah, you know, showed that this is more than a religion. it is a culture. In fact, Sharia Law, ah, ah, is a law that goes way beyond religious beliefs. It handles every aspect of, of human existence. And we have to understand that one of the things that, ah, Islam is doing and radical Muslims are doing--they are taking advantage of our constitutional protection of freedom of religion, ah, to say--Well, we're a religious organization, and then you have to let us, ah, operate the way we want to. But that's like a Trojan Horse. They are more than a religious, um, organization. They've come into our country as a religious organization, but, really, they are a political organization that seeks domination and seeks to change our political system, and we have to be aware of this 'Stealth Jihad.' And we have to be allowed to fight it, and that's what a lot of Americans are starting to do. They understand better than our political leaders what is happening here, and all we have to do is listen and read what Muslims are saying about their, um, efforts to dominate the world, their efforts to overthrow our constitutional system of government...." [* = This is not a true word, it was a bad misspeak for "Oklahoma".]
Frank Beckmann: "But, Mr. Thompson, you're a lawyer. I'm not. So I need you to explain to me how, how, ah, there's, there's a difference here, because The Constitution--First Amendment--says 'Congress shall make no law respecting the establish, an establishment or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.' So, if under Sharia Law, a man is allowed to rape his wife if she refuses to have sex with him, ah, if a man is compelled to defend, dah, Islam, ah, above all else, how do, how do we square that--because that is a religious belief--how do we square that with that First Amendment?"
Richard Thompson: "Well, you, well, the first thing is I guess you can believe anything you want, as along as you don't act on it. Ah, and that's the question The Constitution, ah, focuses on action. But the, the, the deeper question, or, or, or different question that I have, Frank, is this--If you are in America and you're going to be an American citizen, you can to support, ah, in, in, ah, the allegiance to The Constitution of the United States, which then would say that Sharia Law in many of its respects are unconstitutional. You can't have it both ways. You cannot be a, ah, Sharia-adherant Muslim can believe all the things that Sharia Law states and then be loyal to The Constitution of the United States. And so, in this case, ah, this individual who was charged in, in Pennsylvania with harassment, um, he was able to say--I'm in America, but because you have, ah, dishonored the Prophet Mohammed, I have a right to, ah, attack you. Now, free speech went out the window. And that's what we have to be concerned about. If you allow Sharia Law, what you're done, what you've done is you've, ah, really eliminated the fundamental rights that we have in our Constitution--the right to the free, ah, the right to the free exercise of religion, in the sense that, under Sharia Law, ah, any other religion is second class and you do not have a right to exercise that. If you attempt to convert someone from, ah, Islam to Christianity, you're an apostate, you can be sentenced to death. Women don't have the simila, same rights as men do--they are second-class citizens You don't have a right to free speech. You don't have a right to, ah, ah, to your conscious. So you have all of these fundamental, um, rights under our Constitution that are taken away by Sharia Law. And so it, it is important for us to understand that, and it is important for us to fight it. The, the cases like what happened in Pennsylvania are good examples of what we should be concerned with. Pennsyl, ah, cases like in New Jersey where a man has a right to beat his wife, um, be, because she doesn't do what he wants her to do, that should be concern to all Americans, and that should be enough concern to the citizens of Oklahoma or any other state to pass laws that prohibit, um, Sharia Law or any other international law from transgressing the constitutional rights that Americans have."
Frank Beckmann: "Always good to have you on the show...."
[Note: You are urged to see "103. Attacks religious beliefs and pushes to crush religious belief" in my document entitled A Little History of Barack Obama Events: A Show of Deconstruction, which shows how Barack Obama is attacking religion groups in the United States of America through unconstitutional means and which can be reached by using this History link.]
* * * Impressions and Observations and Possibilities * * *
It is clear that Barack Obama does not like the United States of America as it was founded and as it is, it becoming was it is that through evolution--he has attacked bankers, doctors, car dealers, et cetera--and Radical Islamists dislike the United States of America, such as bankers, doctors, car dealers, truckers, plumbers, conservative-based writers, et cetera. A lot of bad is possible in the days to come, and the bad will come from Barack Obama and entities with ties to Barack Obama or entities that have the same beliefs as those in Barack Obama's mind, a mind based on lies and filled with ideologies found in Marxism and communism and with, probably, ideologies found Sharia Law. The future is always coming, and I give you things to think about and watch out for.
I have shown that Barack Obama has ties to people who are pushing for the rise in Sharia-based business in the world, and those people are coming out of, for one, Saudi Arabia, and it looks as if such people are already working stealthy to damage the financial structure of the country by incorporating Sharia-compliant rules to business dealings in the U.S., and you should watch for Barack Obama's making more ties with people who are involved Shari'ah-compliant business or promoting people who are involved in Shariah-compliant business, such as by visiting and meeting with more people who are based in the Middle East.
Barack Obama is working to push through a big overhaul of the laws of the banking industry or investment industry of the country, and, in fact, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a version of a sweeping piece of legislation in December 2009 entitled the Consumer Financial Protection Agency Act, and one of the features of the bill that was passed is the government would have the power to break apart any company that it wanted to, when the government felt it should, such as when the company appeared to be too big (or, maybe, simply when it wanted to), and now the bill is in the U.S. Senate, and, already, Barack Obama has damaged the country buy signing very expensive federal bills into law, which have resulted in putting the country is deep debt, and what Barack Obama is doing is taking stealth action against the financial structure of the country and the value of the dollar. (You should see my document entitled Enemies of the United States of America: Politicians Who Have Hurt You by Voting "Yes" for Bad Federal Bills, which can be reached by using this link: Enemies).
Without a doubt, people who take up or follow radical Sharia Law are self-centered people or belong to a self-centered culture that does not care about The U.S. Constitution and the established ways of the rule of law in the country, and, by the way, evidence exists that Barack Obama does not like The U.S. Constitution, and I have shown evidence of that in some of my documents that are available on the Internet, and, in fact, those who push radical Sharia Law do not care about anything except what is related to Sharia Law, and that means Buddhists, Christians, Jews, and other non-Sharia believers who believe in The U.S. Constitution, which offers the right of every individual in the U.S. to practice the religion of choice, have to watch out for, block, and complain about people who push for laws or put into practice laws that are Sharia Laws or are laws that give the followers of the Islamic faith special treatment, such as allow public funds to be used to build mosques or use public funds to give special privileges to people of the Islamic faith, such as foot-bath units or prayer rugs.
Shariah Law is a set of religious beliefs, and such beliefs can cause a culture that takes them on in practice to stall or not evolve, as can be seen by looking at the ways of Iran, and, for example, a country that follows such beliefs will continue to treat women as secondary to men, and you must always be aware people who push for Shariah Law will be pushing a single culture that allows for no deviation, and that singular culture when take up by a government will ultimately use oppressive means to see to it that it is followed and remains intact, and oppressive means can be imposing fines, giving out jail time, promoting beatings, and authorizing killing.
Hezbollah (which is based in Lebanon) has close ties with Iran (Iran provides funds to Hezbollah), and, in October 2009, Lebanon was voted by the General Assembly of the United Nations to become a non-permanent member of the Security Council of the United Nations, which will be for two years starting on January 10, 2010 (non-permanent members serve for two years).
On Saturday, November 21, 2009, I watched On the Point with Rev. Wendell Anthony on WADL-HD, Channel 3.1, Detroit, and a guest named Minister Rasul Hakim Muhhad (of Mohammad Mosque No. 1 of the Nation of Islam) said: "...Look at our reaction to 9/11, for an example...There's not a black--so-call black Muslim--in America that had any fear during 9/11, because--if I could use the term--we're home grown. We know the enemy we face on a daily basis here...."
On Thursday, July 1, 2010, the head of NASA--Charles Bolden--was shown in an interview by Al jazeera television (of the Middle East), and on Tuesday, July 6, 2010, parts of the interview became clearly public knowledge in the United States of America, such as through The Rush Limbaugh Program (which is a nationally syndicated radio show) and The Mark Levin Show (which is a nationally syndicated radio show). I have two portions of the interview for you to see, and, of course, they are presented in text form. Examine them:
"...Ah, when I became the NASA administrator--well, before I became the NASA administrator--he [Barack Obama] charged me with three things. One was he wanted me reinspire children to want to get into science and math. He wanted me to expand our international relationships. And, third--and perhaps foremost--he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and, ah, engage much more with them, dominantly Muslim nations to help them, ah, feel good about, dah, their historic contributions to science--science, math, and engineering...."
"...You know, in his [Barack Obama's], ah, in his message in Cairo, he talked about expanding our, ah, international outreach, expanding our international involvement. We're not gonna go anywhere beyond lower Earth orbit as a single entity. The United States can't do it. China can't do it. No single nation is gonna go to a place like Mars, ah, alone, eh, for a number of reasons. Ah, the technologies that we need to get there are going to come from a variety of different nations who, who offer different specialties and different talents...."
Charles Boldin, the NASA administrator, pushed a lot of nonsense. He noted that Barack Obama has a push on to get children "into science and math," and, again, it was another piece of evidence of Barack Obama's non-push for business (Barack Obama has pushed in speeches his desire for children to get into science and math or into public service, which, if young people pursue such careers, it will reduce the numbers of people going into and creating businesses). Why is NASA interested in "reaching out to anyone," especially as a main focus? The job of NASA--before Barack Obama became the U.S. President--had been to reach out for the stars. NASA is not an entity designed to expand international relationships as if it were a social club! In the early 1960s, U.S. President John F. Kennedy pushed the idea of going to the moon by the end of the decade, and U.S. President John F. Kennedy did not push to have other countries help us go to the moon, which the country did do. But Barack Obama's Charles Boldin hints that the United States of America cannot go anywhere without the help of other countries, though the United States of America has some three-hundred-million persons. Surely, there are enough individuals in the country to do the jobs necessary to get people to Mars. And it is not the job of the United States of America to make Muslim nations feel good about themselves (Muslim nations are failing entities or are failed entities because they have governments designed for tyranny and dictators, some of which are set up under strict religious law). Ultimately, what you should see Barack Obama is focused on Muslims and not the United States of America, and that is clearly shown by Charles Boldin's statements about having the space agency more involved with diplomacy, particularly with Muslim nations, than involved with working to go to the stars.
You should worry about a number of possibilities. If Democrats keep blocking the drilling for oil in the United States of America, the country will continue to have to pay for oil from the Middle East, and the Shariah-based people will gain more money that can be used to get control in financial institutions in the country by buying into them. If Shariah-based people get control or more control of financial institutions in this country, they will be able to determine what businesses and industries will be able to do and not do in the country--beyond that which is already a part of federal government laws and state laws. If companies become beholden to Sharia Law, the businesses will have to change business policies, which can be imposing dress codes on employees and pushing more Islamic traditions on employees as a part of being employed. If Shariah-type people get control of stock markets, then more money involved in the business of the stock markets could be funneled to terrorist groups (a stock market entity makes money, and a 2.5 percent of what is made could get directed to terrorist groups). If a company based in this country is bought by a company that promotes Sharia Law and does business related to the ways of Sharia Law, the employees could have to follow the ways of Islamic dress and such.
Let me make two main thoughts clear about fighting against Shariah-compliant business getting a foothold in this country. You have to be aware whether or not the company that you work for is investing retirement money in businesses that are involved in Sharia-compliant contracts, mutual funds, stocks, et cetera, since some of the money--2.5 percent--is probably being directed by clerics to entities that are going against your interests, and you should keep in mind that no such party should have to be involved in your business dealings, and you should complain loudly if the company that you work for gets involved in putting retirement money, such as pension-fund money, in Sharia-based investments. You should be aware whether or not your financial institution, such as bank, is involved in Sharia-compliant business, such as through a subsidiary, and you should avoid financial institutions involved with Shariah-compliant business or you should pull out of financial institutions involved with Shariah-compliant business, and you should avoid investing in businesses that deal with Sharia-compliant business.
That covers all the I wish to cover for this first version of the document--a version that I rushed to put on the Internet--and now let other people know about this document and the information contained with it.
P.S. #1: By the way, around the time that I made the first version of this document, such as on December 10, 2009, I tried to make contact with Wikipedia on the Internet to get information about such keywords or subjects as "Barack Obama," "Jidah," "Sharia," and "Khomenini" (I was going through Google), and every time I clicked on such a subject, the browser shut down, but I was able to get to other subjects.
P.S. #2: By the way, Barack Obama has ties to Spanish-type people who want to have a portion the southwestern region of the United States of America secede from the United States of America (such as California, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico), such as people who have been members of the National Council of La Raza, which promotes the enacting of legisation that gives the United States of America open borders and the enacting of rules that push local law-enforcement people not to take up any law action against illegal aliens, and some passed members of that group are Sonia Sotomayor (who became a Justice of the U.S. Surpreme Court in 2009) and Mari Del Carmen Aponte, who, on December 9, 2009, was nominated by Barack Obama to be the ambassador to the Republic of El Salvador, and that means Barack Obama has ties to another radical people.
P.S. #3: You are urged to see T.H.A.T. #74 (or Television History And Trivia #74), since it contains information and speculation based on facts about Miss USA Rima Fakih, the Miss USA 2010 television program, and radical Islamists, and the document can be reached by using this link: T.H.A.T. #74.
P.S. #4: On Wednesday, June 23, 2010, Jon Voight (an actor and the father of Angelina Jolie) was a guest on The Sean Hannity Show, which is a nationally syndicated radio show, and he read a letter he had written to Barack Obama and talked about a piece of, to him, disturbing news, which had yet to be journalistically verified well, that Barack Obama had confided to Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit at some time somewhat recently that he was a Muslim and that his relatives were Muslims (and to learn about much of what Jon Voight said, you should see the document entitled Patriots of the U.S.A. and the Counter-Counter Revolution, which can be reached by using this link: Patriots).
