Burning the Quran will Factor in the News Again


Burn Quran - Terry Jones

John R. Houk

© June 18, 2012

 

I know that most sane people believes that Terry Jones is a Muslim-hating crank covered in the auspices of a Christian Church and an academic doctorate. The thing is though his politically incorrect agenda to burn Qurans and stand on the roof tops proclaiming that Islam is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution is absolutely a good thing.

 

The Quran commands Muslims to convert, humiliate or kill Jews and Christians. Why? Jews and Christians believe the Bible (Pentateuch-Torah for Jews and both Old Testament and New Testament for Christians) is the Word of God while the Quran is a collection warped lies plagiarized from the Bible. The Quran actually claims the Holy writings of the Bible that pre-date Mohammed and the Quran is a pile of paper deception.

 

As an American Christian the anti-Liberty, Jew-Hatred and Christian-hatred embedded in the Quran, the Hadith and the Sira are quite enough to peacefully expose the nature of Islam and Sharia Law as it affects the Constitution, Judaism and Christianity. I placed the words ‘peacefully expose’ to remind non-Muslims living under the authority of the U.S. Constitution cannot and must not use violence against another religion even a theopolitical religion such as Islam. In America Religious Freedom and Free Speech are guaranteed by the very Constitution that purist Muslims desire to destroy. HOWEVER, Religious Freedom and Free Speech does not give a pass to anyone – religious or political ideology or both – to commit acts of violence against people living under the rule of law defined by the U.S. Constitution. Acts of violence aimed to illegally bring down Constitutional government is treason and should be treated as such.

 

Terry Jones is not committing ANY acts of violence against people when he publicly announces he is going to burn 2,998 Qurans representing the deaths of Americans by Muslims killing in the name of Allah just as the Quran commands to do against those that refuse Islamic Supremacism. Note the violence perpetrated on 9/11 was done by Radical Muslims against working Americans who for the most part had no idea their political system under the U.S. Constitution insulted Islam so much that Islamic honor required retribution.

 

Leftists are blind multiculturalists so I can see their extreme dislike of Terry Jones. Most upstanding Conservatives especially Republicans condemn Terry Jones because they have brainwashed that criticism of Islam is hate-speech thanks to the hard work of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the multiculturalist mindset of European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) complicity with the OIC agenda to squash all criticism of Islam.

 

In writing all this below is the latest public announcement from Terry Jones announcing another World Burn the Quran day scheduled for September 11, 2013. The synopsis below the video directs you to go to the website Stand Up America for more details.

Tampa Bay, Florida – location securedWorld Wide Burning 2998 Korans

 

We have secured a location in the Tampa Bay area for our September 11th event. We will be releasing the location in the near future.

 

The radical hand of Islam shows itself with violence against anyone who dares to stand up and speak the truth. We at Stand Up America Now will not back down. We will not be silent.

Abraham Lincoln said, “To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”

On September 11th, 2013, to remember those who were murdered by radical Islam, and to send Islam a very clear warning, that they will not get their foothold in the American Constitution as they have done in Europe, we will be holding an International Burning of 2,998 Korans, representing one for each individual who was murdered in the September 11th, 2001 attacks.
 

President Obama is a aggressively working to convince the American public that criticism of Islam is a violation of a Muslim’s civil rights. The American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee met last week with top Department of Justice official, Bill Killian. Both groups agree: federal civil rights laws are violated by those who post “inflammatory documents” aimed at Muslims on social media.

Peaceful speech and expression is fully within our civil rights!  Criticism of Islam cannot be avoided, especially in light of recent events. While this scrutiny is to be considered “inflammatory,” the murderously inflammatory words of the Koran and the teachings of Islam’s leaders are protected.  We are on an extremely dangerous path as a nation!

Terry Jones Still Pushing Muslim Buttons


John R. Houk

© April 24, 2013

 

Terry Jones is often painted as a Muslim hater and bigot. Jones is definitely not a politically correct kind-of-guy. Below is a recent three minute or so video put together by Jones telling his perspective on the theopolitical religion of Islam and how he intends to annoy Muslim adherents by burning 2, 998 Qurans. That number represents the number of victims who lost their lives during the Muslim terrorist attack of 9/11. I agree with Jones assessment of Islam even though a majority of Muslims may practice a peaceful form of Islam. The fact remains is that those known as radical Muslims are in reality following Islam as it was originally propagated by its prophet Mohammed.

 

This video is so politically incorrect I would not be surprised that Youtube will pull it.

What are YOU Going to Do About Christians in Pakistan?


StopKillingChristiansPakistan

Shamim Masih writes this message that is dripping with the blood of helpless frustration for the lot of Christians in Muslim dominated Pakistan. Shamim’s description is that of the classic dhimmi status that non-Muslims must suffer through in Pakistan (and for that matter all Muslim dominated nations).

 

Shamim goes on to lament of the near ZERO support Western Christians provide Christian-Pakistanis when in fact Muslim NGOs and charities are flowing with cash via Western government programs. NONE of that aid flowing to Pakistan reaches Christian-Pakistanis.

 

At the very end of Shamim’s message he saves a sentence for Pastor Terry Jones and his supporters. For those who do not know who Pastor Terry Jones is; he is the person that has spearheaded such activities as International Burn the Quran Day, Trial of the Quran Day, promoted the sophomoric anti-Mohammed movie trailer Innocence of Muslims and various Counterjihad events. Jones is usually decried by Leftists, Conservatives and most Counterjihad writers all alike. Jones’ critics typically would name him as a Counterjihad activist but rather as an Anti-Islam bigoted activist.

 

Here is the thing though. I don’t care if Jones’ antics are viewed as bigotry because I view Islam as an Anti-Christ religion. On the other hand I understand Shamim’s criticism of Terry Jones as well. Jones has gotten a lot of national and international press attention even if that attention is disseminated by a Liberal Diversity Multicultural in a negative light. Jones’ attention eventually ends up on Muslim media. As you should know by now Islam wears its feelings like a chip on the shoulder and their religious leaders go nuts that a non-Muslim/kafir like Terry Jones would dare to insult their prophet, their Allah or their holiest book the Quran. They go so nuts that if they could they would grab Terry Jones and torture him with humiliation and chop his head off.

 

As Shamim Masih points out, in lieu of not murdering Terry Jones in humiliation, Muslims are stirred up to take out their wrath on whatever local Christians that can be found. AND that is the reason Shamim Masih mentions Terry Jones. The life of a dhimmi Christian in Pakistan is often similar to hell on earth. If one of us Christian-Americans were stuck in Pakistan during one of these death inflicting violent Islamic temper tantrums, you and I might think we missed the rapture and was stuck through the Tribulation.

 

AND SO if you are one that supports Terry Jones’ First Amendment Right to disrespect an Anti-Christ religion like Islam, we must consider the Christians stuck in dhimmi-like conditions in Muslim nations. We need to begin funneling money to Christian NGOs which often act as the only Human Rights organizations that put action to alleviating the second-class citizenship persecution that Christians receive on a regular basis in Pakistan (and for that matter all Muslim dominated nations).

 

Western support and I should say American support, is the point of Shamim Masih’s message I am posting below.

Pakistani Christians and Western Interests

ISLAMABAD PAKISTAN (SHAMIM MASIH): Its general perception among Pakistani Muslims that UN, USAID, British High Commission, American Embassy, Christian diplomats and other foreigners are helping Pakistani Christians, but the reality is different. Let me give you the actual situation.

 

On February 6, 1997, a religiously charged mob attacked village Shantinagar, district Khanewal in which about 800 houses including churches, hostels were torched. In November 2005, in Sangla Hill, about 100 Christian houses, schools, hostels, and Christian Clinic were burnt. On 1st August 2009, Christians were attacked in Gujra and 8 persons of a family were burnt alive and about 130 houses were turned to ashes. On 30th June, 2000, Christians were attacked in village Bahnamiwala, District Kasur in which about 102 houses were destroyed. On 21st September, 2012, Church, school and Pastors residences were turned to ash. And more recently, on March 9, 2013, over 200 homes of the Christians community of Joseph Colony in Lahore were burnt.

 

Ironically none was punished under the law for such gory episode; these barbaric attacks have sent a grave message to the already marginalized Christians. The sense of insecurity has alarmingly grown beyond proportions. The blasphemy law has been repeatedly used for settling personal scores, religious persecution, professional rivalry and for land grabbling.

  

This is not the end; large numbers of Christians accused of Blasphemy cases getting their lives rusted in the jails for years and years and there is no future to their children or other family members.

 

I am freelance journalist, Christian by faith and a social activist working for a democratic, tolerant and progressive social order and for socio economic and political rights of religious minorities especially for the Christians of Pakistan. I have devotedly served in the field of human rights during the last decade and have been raising their issues, persecutions, and rights through my writings, without any support.

 

I feel very helpless and ashamed when I received phone calls and emails from Christians all around the country for help in employment, protection on threats from fundamentalists, help for their children educations etc but I can’t support them. I remain silent for hours on reading email/news of the blasphemy victims who are behind bars or acquitted from higher courts but living in hiding to save their lives. The news items of rape and enforced conversion of Christian women make me sad and silent. I went to Gojra and had travelled to Mardan, when the church burnt there and went to Karachi, when Ryan was accused of blasphemy case and have reported on Badami Bagh incident as well; I write for the people whom I have seen working on ground realities, for example, CLAAS has been working for years for the Christians persecution, WVIP is seen during the Ryan case and others as well, I have seen Sardar Mushtaq (chief of LEAD), working for persecution without any funds, Basharat Khokhar was seen during Rimsha case, and I appreciate his efforts in protecting her during the case proceedings and I have seen him struggling him for Christian rights, but there are so many other settling scores. I have seen the struggle of Albert David for unity among Pakistani Christians. I have seen Saleem Khokhar, sitting in provincial parliamentarian; he bears ground to earth personality. I am helpless when hear the reports of Muslim culprits of gang rape of Christian girls walking free from courts. (Even those were set free who killed Shahbaz Bhatti ex-minister).

 

Role of our churches, local and NGOs: It’s time to think twice that what NGOs under Christian supervision, Churches and political leadership are doing? Where all funds are going which Christian civil society, Churches have been receiving in the name of poor Christians. How many Christian institutions are facilitating Christian’s students? Why are Western governments denying visas to acquitted blasphemy victims? It caused me to think; is USAID for Muslims in Pakistan? When their slogan is “From the American People” is all American people sending for Muslims? If not, then why is the Christian youth not receiving (on the link scroll down to “Pakistan”) scholarships for education, funds for business, employment in their offices? Why there is no program for Christian youth? Why do Western Human Rights champions keep silent on rape and enforced conversion of Christian women? Why is it that a common Christian has no reach to embassies and if someone applies for visa, why is it refused, because, a poor Christian has no property and no strong background? Isn’t it? Why is UNO [United Nation Organization] silent on killing of Christians and the attacks on Christians worship places? A million Christians are crying in Pakistan against the blasphemy law, extrajudicial killings, wrongful confinements and discrimination but UNO remains silent.

 

It’s just an example: I worked for “People to People International” PTPI and didn’t receive even a single penny on the other hand a Muslim running a chapter “Punjab chapter” in Gujranwala Pakistan, have got thousands of dollars and have done nothing on the ground. He got visas dozens of times and has taken many Muslims with him to many countries dozens of times. I applied for a visa US in 2010 and was refused. Furthermore not only this visa denied but my “Islamabad Chapter” was revoked just because of the reason of the visa application. In all of the UN organization and USAID, there are 90% Muslims employed and 99% of them are Pathans.

 

No one dares to ask NGOs like ILAP [See Also HERE and HERE] governed under Christian supervision, how many Christian employees they have? No one bothers to pursue Christian institutions in Rawalpindi when they push out Christian students for not paying their fees. Are these institutions just for business purposes or is there any sense of security/realization for Christians students? How many Christian’s students are studying in Jesus and Mary Convent in Islamabad/Rawalpindi Pakistan? We don’t have the right to ask our Christian politicians what they have done for Pakistani Christians. These Christian politicians were selected ones and their selection didn’t come in through Christian votes but rather through paying huge funds (collected in poor Christians name) to Muslims Parties. This practice of [buying political positions] is still going on……. They are too many Christians looking for a gateway through paying funds to Muslim political parties.

 

Pakistani media normally do not highlight Christians’ issues. This is why there is no powerful electronic and print media for their rights. We don’t have a platform to print or give stories about the oppressed and persecuted Pakistani Christians. I usually write for the oppressed and persecuted Pakistani Christians and I am thankful to the Pakistan Christian Post, Salem-News, ANS, Global Christian Voice, John Houk, and Wilson Chaudhry, taking the pain for Pakistani Christians and they are highlighting their stories/issues.

 

During my writing work, I have been receiving threats from Muslims but I am also being hit by the people sent by imported so-called Christian Politicians, who have delivered nothing yet wanted to stop me from writing the facts.

 

It is observed during the said time period that all these institutions have their vested interests. It could be political, geographical, or whatsoever it is, but not for Pakistani Christians.

 

This is less a criticism and more an appeal to all Human Rights organizations to take notice of incidents of victimization of Christians and support them. Because when your “American” Terry Jones burns a Quran, you don’t suffer but we Pakistani Christians do.

 

Be Blessed,

 

Shamim Masih

AQAP Inspire Mag – Kill these 10 Infidel ‘Wanted Poster’


 

al Qaeda Inspire Mag poster hit list

 

John R. Houk

© March 2, 2013

 

Don’t listen to a Leftie when he/she tells you there is no Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). There definitely is one. Check out this information passed on to me by the Infidel Task Force about al Qaeda Arab Peninsula (AQAP – Slide Show Info) publishing a hit list poster in their magazine Inspire.

 

The AQAP English magazine Inspire has published a wanted poster to kill Counterjihadists deemed insulters of Islam. Here is the list on the wanted posted:

 

1. Carsten Luste (should be Juste), Danish journalist, former editor of Jyllands-Posten

2. Terry Jones, President of Stand Up America Now

3. Kurt Westergaard, Danish cartoonist

4. Geert Wilders, Dutch politician

5. Lars Vilks, Swedish cartoonist

6. Stephane Charbonnier, French editor of Charlie Hebdo

7. Flemming Rose, Danish journalist

8. Morris Sadek, Copt Christian who promoted Innocence of Muslims

9. Salman Rushdie, author

10. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author (not pictured – she does not wear a veil)

 

Carsten Luste (Juste)

Carsten Juste

 

The newspaper published the cartoons when a Danish author complained that he could find no-one to illustrate his book about Muhammad. Jyllands-Posten wondered whether there were more cases of self-censorship regarding Islam in Denmark and asked twelve illustrators to draw the prophet for them. Carsten Juste, the paper’s editor, said the cartoons were a test of whether the threat of Islamic terrorism had limited the freedom of expression in Denmark.

 

The publication led to outrage among the Muslim immigrants living in Denmark. 5,000 of them took to the streets to protest. Muslim organisations have demanded an apology, but Juste rejects this idea: “We live in a democracy. That’s why we can use all the journalistic methods we want to. Satire is accepted in this country, and you can make caricatures,” he said. The Danish imam Raed Hlayhel reacted with the statement: “This type of democracy is worthless for Muslims. Muslims will never accept this kind of humiliation. The article has insulted every Muslim in the world.” (Jihad Against Danish Newspaper; by Paul Belien; Brussels Journal; 10/22/05)

 

Terry Jones

 

Terry Jones

Jones is the most prominent picture in the wanted poster. One of many reasons is his campaigns of Burn the Quran Day and more recently International Judge the Koran Day … and the execution: burn it! Here is a photo of burning the Quran.

 Terry Jones Burning Quran

Terry Jones (born October 1951) is the pastor of Dove World Outreach Center, a small nondenominational Christian church in Gainesville, Florida.[1] He first gained national and international attention in 2010 for his plan to burn Qur’ans, the scripture of the Islamic religion, on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. He was a self-declared independent presidential candidate in the 2012 U.S. Presidential election. (Wikipedia READ THE REST)

 

Kurt Westergaard

 

Kurt Westergaard

Westergaard is the guy famed for drawing caricatures of Mohammed in a humorous light. Muslims view this kind satire as a reason to kill.

 

The Danish cartoonist whose caricature of the Islamic Prophet Mohammed sparked global Muslim riots seven years ago says he has no regrets, and wants no censors.

 

Speaking in an interview this week with the Austrian magazine “News,” Kurt Westergaard said that freedom of speech is too precious to relinquish. ”Should we in future let ourselves be censored by Islamic authorities in deeply undemocratic countries?” he asked.

 

Westergaard’s question carried particular relevance in his own personal life: in 2010, he nearly died in an assassination attempt by a Muslim extremist wielding an axe. The would-be murderer, 29-year-old Mohamed Geele, was convicted of attempted terrorism and attempted murder and sentenced to a nine-year prison term in Denmark. He will be deported after serving his time in prison.

 

Muslims around the world said the image of the Prophet Mohammed drawn by Westergaard, which they believed mocked Islam, had offended them. In response, there were worldwide riots and violence that resulted in a number of deaths. (READ THE REST: Danish ‘Mohammed’ cartoonist Kurt Westergaard has no regrets, opposes censorship; By Chana Ya’ar; Reposted on 1389 Blog – Counterjihad! – 9/21/13)

 

Geert Wilders

 

Geert Wilders

Here is the Google Search page abbreviated version of a Wikipedia entry:

 

Geert Wilders is a Dutch politician and the founder and leader of the Party for Freedom, the fourth-largest political party in the Netherlands. Wilders is the Parliamentary group leader of his party in the Dutch House of Representatives.

 

Wilders is notable because he is the head of a political party that has come close to being a mainstream political force in Netherlands even while the Dutch judiciary tried to convict him for hate crimes related to exposing the dark side of Islam beginning with the movie short Fitna.

Lars Vilks, Swedish artist/Cartoonist spoke on September 11, 2012 at the Stop Islamization of Nations’ International Freedom Defense Council held at the UN Plaza Millennium Hotel.

 

Here is some recent info on Lars Vilks from Before It’s News:

 

Swedish artist and sculptor Lars Vilk- who gained international notoriety for  pushing the limits of freedom of expression by drawing  the head of the Prophet Mohammed on the body of a dog in 2007 and was subsequently targeted for death by offended Muslims, and was then attacked at a lecture on freedom of speech in 2010- has some new paintings of Mohammad ready to exhibit.  The exhibition is set for July this year, in Malmö, Sweden- a city that is heavily populated by Muslims. Vilks believes:

 

“It’s important to continue because if you yield to the threats and back away, you have abandoned the democratic principle.”

 

His Mohammed dog drawing was published in 2007 along with an editorial on freedom of expression in the Swedish paper Nerikes Allehanda after several gallery exhibits pulled the Mohammed drawings because of security concerns.

 but this time: (READ THE REST: Lars Vilks Has More Mohammed Drawings To Exhibit, In Spite Of Death Threats; Before It’s News; 2/21/13 13:40)

 

Stephane Charbonnier

 

Stephane Charbonnier

The offices of the French ‘Private Eye’ style satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo have been destroyed in a petrol bomb attack in Paris.

It came after the publication named the Prophet Mohammad as its editor-in-chief for its latest issue. The cover of the magazine carried a picture of Muhammad making a joke.

The real editor of Charlie Hebdo, Stephanie Charbonnier, said Islam could not be excluded from freedom of the press. He said: “If we can poke fun at everything in France, if we can talk about anything in France apart from Islam or the consequences of Islamism, that is annoying.”

The editor said the magazine had received several threats prior to the attack.

He continued: “This is the first time we have been physically attacked but we won’t let it get to us.” (READ THE REST: French ‘Private Eye’ attacked in Paris over Mohammad joke; By “Civil Liberty Correspondent;” Civil Liberty; 11/6/11)

 

Flemming Rose

 

Flemming Rose - published Mo cartoons

Childish. Irresponsible. Hate speech. A provocation just for the sake of provocation. A PR stunt. Critics of 12 cartoons of the prophet Muhammad published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten have not minced their words. They say that freedom of expression does not imply an endorsement of insulting people’s religious feelings, and besides, they add, the media censor themselves every day. So, please do not teach us a lesson about limitless freedom of speech.

 

I agree that the freedom to publish things doesn’t mean you publish everything. Jyllands-Posten would not publish pornographic images or graphic details of dead bodies; swear words rarely make it into our pages. So we are not fundamentalists in our support for freedom of expression.

 

But the cartoon story is different.

 

Those examples have to do with exercising restraint because of ethical standards and taste; call it editing. By contrast, I commissioned the cartoons in response to several incidents of self-censorship in Europe caused by widening fears and feelings of intimidation in dealing with issues related to Islam. And I still believe that this is a topic that we Europeans must confront, challenging moderate Muslims to speak out. The idea wasn’t to provoke gratuitously — and we certainly didn’t intend to trigger violent demonstrations throughout the Muslim world. Our goal was simply to push back self-imposed limits on expression that seemed to be closing in tighter.

 

 

This is the sort of debate that Jyllands-Posten had hoped to generate when it chose to test the limits of self-censorship by calling on cartoonists to challenge a Muslim taboo. Did we achieve our purpose? Yes and no. Some of the spirited defenses of our freedom of expression have been inspiring. But tragic demonstrations throughout the Middle East and Asia were not what we anticipated, much less desired. Moreover, the newspaper has received 104 registered threats, 10 people have been arrested, cartoonists have been forced into hiding because of threats against their lives and Jyllands-Posten’s headquarters have been evacuated several times due to bomb threats. This is hardly a climate for easing self-censorship.

Morris Sadek

 

Morris Sadek - Coptic Christian and Mo Movie

 

Religion News Service (RNS) is reporting that Morris Sadek, an Egyptian-born Coptic Christian, translated the movie into Arabic and sent it to Egyptian journalists. He also allegedly promoted it on his web site and through social media, the outlet reports. RNS has more about his background:

 

Morris Sadek describes himself as a human rights attorney and president of a small group called the National American Coptic Assembly, based in Chantilly, Va. Sadek says on his website that he is a member of the Egyptian and District of Columbia bar associations who has “defended major human rights cases” including the late Coptic Pope Shenouda III, who died in March.

 

But fellow Copts depict Sadek as a fringe figure and publicity hound whose Islamophobic invectives disrupt Copts’ quest for equal rights in Egypt.

 

Michael Meunier, president of U.S. Copts Association, claims that, by taking these actions, Sadek was likely looking for fame in Egyptian media. Considering that he lost his Egyptian citizenship and was banned from the country back in 2011, it makes sense that he would potentially be looking to raise his profile in the region.

 

Here’s a video that purportedly shows him screaming “Islam is evil!” outside of the National Press Building in Washington, D.C.:

 

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

 

 

 

On Sept. 6, Mr. Sadek sent an email to journalists around the world promoting a Sept. 11 event held by Rev. Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who previously sparked deadly protests by burning a copy of the Quran. In the email, Mr. Sadek included a link to the 14-minute YouTube clip.

 

On Sept. 6, Sadek emailed journalists around the world, promoting Jones’ anti-Islamic event and including footage of “Innocence of Muslims,” according to The Wall Street Journal. A conservative TV host in Egypt broadcast the video on Sept. 8, sparking protests at the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

Salman Rushdie

 

Salman Rushdie

Salman Rushdie is a British author who was born in India. In 1988, he wrote the highly acclaimed book, The Satanic Verses. Shortly after that, India banned the book. In the U.S., the publisher received bomb threats. The book was then banned in South Africa. Soon, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Somalia, Bangladesh, Sudan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Qatar banned the book. There were book burnings in England. In Pakistan, six people died and 100 were injured in demonstrations against the book. Then on Feb. 12, 1989, the Ayatollah Khomeini, leader of Iran, declared that the book was blasphemous, and called for the death of Rushdie. Rushdie went into hiding, with protection by the British government. An Iranian charity offered a million dollars reward (later raised to 2.5 million) for Rushdie’s murder. Two bookstores in Berkeley California were firebombed. Twelve people died during rioting in Bombay. Britain broke off diplomatic relations with Iran. In Belgium, two Muslim leaders who opposed Rushdie’s death penalty were shot to death. Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Tanzania, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Venezuela, Bulgaria, Poland and Japan banned the book. The Ayatollah Khomeini died, and the Iranian government reaffirmed Rushdie’s death penalty. Five bookstores in England were firebombed. The Japanese translator of the book was stabbed to death. The Italian translator was seriously wounded. The Norwegian publisher was shot and seriously wounded.(READ THE REST: Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses; By Jim Loy; JimLoi.com; © 2002)

 

Salman Rushdie’s memoir provides a fascinating insight into the life of a man who, haunted for a decade by the death sentence that hovered over his head, struggled to cobble together something resembling a quotidian existence. The event that was splashed across the pages of the national press is now recounted by the man who lived through it in bare, reflective, thought-provoking prose; Joseph Anton: A Memoir recounts the ten years Rushdie spent living under a fatwa.

 

The publication of Rushdie’s novel The Satanic Verses in 1988 enraged Muslims across the world, including the Ayatollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, who soon publicly demanded his execution. Throughout the decade of the fatwa, pronounced in 1988 and eventually lifted in 1998, Rushdie lived under an assumed identity, adopting the pseudonym Joseph Anton in a personal homage to the writers Joseph Conrad and Anton Chekhov.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, an outspoken defender of women’s rights in Islamic societies, was born in Mogadishu, Somalia. She escaped an arranged marriage by immigrating to the Netherlands in 1992 and served as a member of the Dutch parliament from 2003 to 2006. In parliament, she worked on furthering the integration of non-Western immigrants into Dutch society and defending the rights of women in Dutch Muslim society. In 2004, together with director Theo van Gogh, she made Submission, a film about the oppression of women in conservative Islamic cultures. The airing of the film on Dutch television resulted in the assassination of Mr. van Gogh by an Islamic extremist. At AEI, Ms. Hirsi Ali researches the relationship between the West and Islam, women’s rights in Islam, violence against women propagated by religious and cultural arguments, and Islam in Europe. (Ayaan Hirsi Ali – AEI Profile Page)

 

Ayaan Hirsi Ali captured the world’s attention with Infidel, her compelling coming-of-age memoir, which spent thirty-one weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

 

Now, in Nomad, Hirsi Ali tells of coming to America to build a new life, an ocean away from the death threats made to her by European Islamists, the strife she witnessed, and the inner conflict she suffered. It is the story of her physical journey to freedom and, more crucially, her emotional journey to freedom – her transition from a tribal mind-set that restricts women’s every thought and action to a life as a free and equal citizen in an open society. Through stories of the challenges she has faced, she shows the difficulty of reconciling the contradictions of Islam with Western values.

 

In her books Hirsi Ali recounts the many turns her life took after she broke with her family, and how she struggled to throw off restrictive superstitions and misconceptions that initially hobbled her ability to assimilate into Western society. She speaks movingly of her reconciliation, on his deathbed, with her devout father, who had disowned her when she renounced Islam after 9/11, as well as with her mother and cousins in Somalia and in Europe.

Terry Jones: Bigot or American Christian Patriot?


Aug. 01, 2010 - Gainesville, Florida, US - *EXCLUSIVE* Pastor TERRY JONES poses for a portrait at Dove World Outreach Center. ''We believe that Islam is of the devil, that it's causing billions of people to go to hell, it is a deceptive religion, it is a violent religion and that is proven many, many times,'' said senior pastor JONES. On September 11th, 2010, from 6pm - 9pm, we will burn the Quran on the property of Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, FL in remembrance of the fallen victims of 9/11 and to stand against the evil of Islam,'' says the church's Facebook page.

Terry Jones is the “Burn the Koran Pastor”. Terry Jones is running for President. The combination of the two pieces of information has kind of made Jones a joke not to be taken seriously. It probably does not help Jones’ aspirations by being very supportive of the Mo Movie Innocence of Muslims. Look at the picture of above. That white hair and thick white handlebar moustache gives him the appearance of a modern day John Brown. John Brown of Harper's Ferry fame 2

 

Now here’s what I think about Terry Jones. I am not a happy camper with Islamic Supremacism and the West’s tendency to kowtow to a religion that bills itself as peaceful yet everyday one can read or view Muslims in Muslim lands persecuting non-Muslims in the most horrendous of ways as well as treating non-Muslims and women in general as second class individuals with little to no rights of free expression. Islamic Apologists and Leftist Multiculturalists insist we non-Muslims respect and not offend Muslims less out of concern about the free expression of Liberty and more out of the high probability Muslims will go berserk in the streets expressing their … err coughreligion of peace. Burning a Quran or two isn’t killing someone as Muslims do when they go berserk with Islamic Supremacist anger over being insulted.

 

I wonder would happen in a Christian majority enclave in Muslim Egypt if the Christians went on a rioting rampage if a few Muslims kidnapped a young Christian gal or numerous Christian gals to be forced to convert to Islam and then forced into marriage? I will tell you what will happen. So-called peaceful Muslims would form a pogrom like mob and maybe even get some help from Egyptian law enforcement and rampage through a Christian enclave pillaging, raping and killing. The West’s reaction to such Muslim aggression will be to offer some slap on the hand verbiage while Christians are being slaughtered then look the other way.

 

And yet this small potatoes Joe American and pastor of a small Church of 50 drives Muslims into a murderous rage and Left Wing diluters of the 1st Amendment into a rage to limit Free Speech by burning a Quran. Can anyone see the disparity in the cause and effect and to really criticize?

 

Anyway I’m a bit behind the curve by discovering an email from Stand Up America about Terry Jones going to Dearborn (Dearbornistan) MI to confront a High School community for punishing non-Muslims for fighting back when Muslims jumped and bullied them. Of course Edsel Ford High School and the Dearborn city and police officials deny this view. The denial is not unusual because when Christians go there to exercise their Free Speech and Religious Freedom Rights Dearborn’s Mayor and Police Chief have demonstrated a poor record in defending the 1st Amendment while looking the other way as Muslim mobs try to shut down Christians from exercising their Rights in the typical Islamic Supremacist fashion of violence.

 

The excerpted email reads like this:

Questions for Dearborn ~ Terry Jones

 

Stand Up America Now will be coming, today, to Edsel Ford High School, in Dearborn, Michigan, to protest the bullying of non-Muslim students.  This is typical of the Islamic population as it grows in numbers.

 

We have been contacted by another parent of an Edsel Ford High School student concerning Muslim bullying and fighting that occurred there, on the same day, in May 2012 which required the Dearborn Police Department to respond. 

 

Here are excerpts from the email:

 

“…my son and others were jumped and suspended for the remainder of the year and faced charges for racial intimidation and incite to riot. The arabic children returned to school. I fought this, given the fact that my son has been called nigger on several occasions and the response was “they didn’t mean it like that” but when I ask that they take the context in which my son said something the context is not considered. They try to desensitize my child to a word that provokes violence but defend the arabs. NOT right. My daughter is called slut and whore when she participates in cheer because she shows too much skin when visiting Salina on East dearborn. I am fed up with this district and HAPPY it is being exposed. Finally maybe something will change and the country will recognize there is a problem in this community.”

 

 

As we see the outbreaks of violence in the Middle East concerning the film “Innocence of Muslims”, here in America and in western countries, we see a definite lack, again, of Islam condemning those terrorist attacks.

 

Let us join together, stand up and protect our rights in America of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press.

 

On October 11th at 6:00pm ET, we will be at Queens Park, in Toronto, Canada, where there is also a Muslim problem.

 

 

Location of Dearborn protest:
Edsel Ford High School
20601 Rotunda Drive
Dearborn, MI 48124
1:00pm
Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

 

Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp will be joined by Rabbi Nachum Shifren, Candidate for the California Senate.

 

Thank you,

Dr Terry Jones

Questions for Dearborn ~ Terry Jones

 

Submitted by Fran

2012-10-09 16:13

 

 

Why did Dearborn’s mayor, chief of police, and Edsel Ford High School principal officiate a special meeting at Edsel Ford last evening?

 

Why have parent volunteers been recruited to supplement a massive policing effort tomorrow?

 

Why were student volunteers sent to each classroom at the high school today to explain what is happening and the special rules for tomorrow to students?

 

Why are Edsel students talking about being on lockdown tomorrow or about not coming to school because of swat teams being there?

 

Why will students will be dismissed from the back of the school? Why will police be around the entire campus and surrounding streets? Why will there be behind scenes security inside and out of the building?

 

Why did the school principle say that he was not aware of any tensions between the students at the school, when much of the parental concern at the meeting was not about Pastor Jones and his message, but with the tension caused by the racism and bullying?

 

How could the principle not be aware that last spring a group of white Christian students were bullied by aggressive arab Muslim students, out of shot of the hall security cameras, the white students were suspended and expelled but the Muslim students were sent back to class?

  

How could the principle not be aware that also last spring a group of black Christian students were bullied by aggressive arab Muslim students, the local police were called in to help, the white students were suspended and expelled but the Muslim students were sent back to class?

 

How could the principle not be aware that Christian and Jewish students are bullied in Dearborn on the streets and in the schools if they wear signs of their religious faith, crosses or kibbahs?

 

Why were 90% of the parents in attendance at last night’s meeting white in a school that is 95% arab Muslim? Where were the Muslims parents saying their children were not bullies and there is no problem with Terry Jones coming there because we are such a tolerant group of people?

  

Why did the Mayor belittle Terry Jones, at the meeting, saying, untruthfully, at past rallies Terry Jones has acted like a thug, provoking people? Why did the Mayor later change his story stating that Terry Jones and his supporters are typically quiet and very well behaved in their actions and demeanor?

 

Why are many supporters of Terry Jones blocked by police and barricades from joining Terry Jones at free speech events? Will this happen tomorrow?  Why are those who disagree with Terry Jones not allowed to come and express their opinion and talk with him at events? Does this police action not violent citizen’s first amendment rights?

 

Why does Dearborn deny there is a problem with Sharia and Muslims when there is such a drama and panic because Terry Jones wants to stand on a sidewalk and say there is a problem with Sharia and Muslims?

 

If sharia and Muslims are tolerant, why is criticism of sharia and Muslims and their Prophet Muhammad not tolerated?

 

Terry Jonesn Edsel Ford HS, Dearbornistan 10-10-12

 

Terry Jones may flash anti-Islam just as John Brown flashed abolition just prior to the Civil War, nevertheless Jones’ in your face wake-up call to expose Islam as an anti-American (i.e. anti-Bill of Rights – particularly the 1st Amendment) religion, but he has the guts to risk being labeled a lunatic to expose that Islamic incompatibility with American culture. In case you missed or forgot you primary school taught history, abolition was an American movement to free the slaves. Abolitionists were considered extremists right up until the Civil War between the States began in 1861. Even Northern anti-slavery minded people considered abolitionists on the extremist side.

 

In order to confront Islamic Supremacism it may be time to take a 21st century abolitionist approach to prevent the portions of Islam that contradict the U.S. Constitution from being practiced in the USA.

 

Here is an account of Terry Jones’ visit to Dearbornistan that is not in the tank for Islam. It is good to look at a view of Jones as a truth speaker rather than an inciter.

Jones Takes on Dearborn Again

 

By T.R. CLANCY

October 11, 2012 7:59 PM

Dearborn Underground

 

Wednesday’s rally by Terry Jones of Stand Up America! outside Edsel Ford High School came and went without dramatic event. Jones’s stated purpose for the rally was to call attention to bullying of nonMuslim students by Muslim students. Jones wanted to meet with the principal, who refused, and then wanted to meet with students while they were boarding buses after school got out, but he was forbidden to enter school property.

 

I expect most of that was school officials wanting to keep Muslim students away from Jones – not from fear of Jones, who has never been validly accused of any violence towards anyone – but to avoid a repeat of the Children’s Crusade of bottle and rock-throwing that broke out last summer when the “Bible Believers” at the Arab American Festival found themselves under attack.

 

Credit where it’s due, the Dearborn Press & Guide’s Joe Slezak has done a much more balanced job of covering yesterday’s event than other local media. (“Jones visit to Dearborn’s Edsel Ford High uneventful”).

 

For one thing, Slezak identifies at least two Dearborn parents who express support for Jones, citing their own experience of having children bullied by Muslim students, who apparently are treated with impunity in most schools. According to Jones, a third parent had emailed Jones “about an incident in May where their son, who is black, was suspended. She said that Arabic students called their son a racial slur several times and when he fought back, he was suspended but the Muslim students were not.” The presence of actual school parents supporting Jones lends credence to his stated reason for staging it, in spite of the popular notion that Jones is only doing this to get publicity.

 

Even if Jones is trying to get publicity for himself and his organization, (don’t most causes try to do the same? – look at the way BAMN shows up at EVERYTHING), that doesn’t mean that the problem he came to protest doesn’t exist.

 

Granted Jones that appealing  a champion.  But remember that he’s first and foremost a messenger. A distinction must be made between his message, and the wacky persona the media and Islamist leaders are trying to paint on him. His detractors call him a loon and a publicity hound to gain two objectives  by foul means: it makes it easier to disregard anything he says, and it scares away potential supporters who aren’t willing to face guilt by association with a person certified a lunatic by the liberal media and the Islamophile left.

 

But Jones’s message is not loony, nor crazy, nor, based on anything I’ve heard him say or that’s been quoted, is his message much different from our message or the message of many other anti-jihad sources. Nor is it a message of hate. It isn’t hate to be critical of a religion that’s in love with bloodshed and death.—and that maintains its religion-of-peace image behind a wall of lies.

 

Jones’s message at the rally, for instance, includes this (as reported in the Press & Guide and the Free Press:

 

§  “Muslims need to obey and respect laws of communities.”

 

§  “Islam is not a religion that tolerates any criticism.”

 

§  (Explaining his support for “Innocence of Muslims”): “Criticism is part of Western society.”

 

§  Muslims have a difficult time integrating into communities.

 

§  As a Muslim community grows, it [becomes] more demanding.

 

§  There is a “radical” element of Islam that is violent and bans free speech.

 

§  “The Quran does teach that the Muslims are the best of all people.”

 

As far as I’m concerned, every one of those statements is a testable fact. Every one of them can be supported with ample documentary and historical evidence. Take away Jones’s General Bullmoose mustache and his endorsement of that crummy movie and his overall hard-guy image, and his message shouldn’t be controversial at all. It’s only upsetting for those already pre-disposed to object to any criticism of Islam.

 

Which unfortunately includes the media and most Dearborn public officials.

Jones Takes on Dearborn Again

 

What Is the Dearborn Underground?

 

We of Dearborn Underground are citizens of a patriotic, Midwestern American small town whose culture, local government, and especially its media, have been overrun by a cartel of bullies who’ve demanded that the only voices heard in Dearborn will be their voices: the voices of CAIR and the ADC–the voice of Al Jazeera–the voice of global Islamic Jihad. As a consequence, the voices of Dearborn’s majority, maybe even your voice, have been silenced and excluded from the public forum by editors and gatekeepers, perhaps from terror of being accused of Islamophobia. We have no desire to silence Dearborn’s Muslims, but their leaders insist that our opinions, or any opinions that offend them, must be censored. Muslim activists have even persuaded state legislators to introduce a resolution intended to criminalize criticism of Islam in the press.

We at Dearborn Underground are trying to resist some of that. We don’t know what’s wrong with our leaders, our legislators, our newspapers, if it’s that they’re they’re scared of beng called names, craven political opportunists, or just Costco-sized weenies. We don’t care any more. We’ll speak for ourselves now.

We don’t hate anybody, we aren’t anti-immigrant, we aren’t religious bigots, and most of us are even rather pleasant if you got to know us. But we also know that our country is under attack by determined enemies–enemies who boast openly about what they’ve got in mind for us and our allies, namely, a grim choice between death and Sharia law.

But many of the same threats and lies spouted by religious leaders way over there in Tehran, in Gaza, or in videos from Pakistan, are being said right here in Dearborn by Muslim leaders, and READ THE REST

Pastor Jones is an idiot….but these people are animals.

Quran Burning and Afghanistan


John R. Houk

© April 4, 2011

 

Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan have used the Quran burning (about 17 minute mark) inside the walls of Pastor Terry Jones’ Church is being used as a propaganda tool to enrage the Muslim Afghan majority. There have been violent protests by Muslims over an incident enacted by a Pastor fed up with the theopolitical nature of Islam which embraces violence as a propagation tool and as a submission tool against Muslim believers and non-Muslims (kafir) alike.

 

Military commanders among the NATO forces battling the Taliban have ran into a public relations problem with the Afghan populace who have been ingrained with Islamic Supremacism hence the rioting. Part of the strategy against the Taliban is to win the sympathy of the Afghan people for the Afghan government of President Hamid Karzai and antipathy toward the purist Islam of the Taliban. NATO commanders have begun condemning the burning of the Quran in the small Church in Florida.

 

I have no doubt the United Nations will cite it’s don’t blaspheme Islam (Defamation of Religions) resolution to condemn Pastor Jones probably with a call for criminal charges because the religion of peace executed seven U.N. workers in Afghanistan.

 

With the NATO commanders coming down strong in condemning the Quran burning undoubtedly to appease the populace they are fighting to keep free from intolerant purist Islam of the Taliban, could there be a move in America to criminalize those of us that openly condemn the violent nature of Islam. Will Christians who evangelize in America be accused of hate because part of that preaching is telling the Good News of deliverance from participating in the dark world that promotes violence and moral impurity?

 

Islam promotes violence against non-Muslims determined to not bowing down to Islamic Supremacism and against Muslims who have determined to walk away from submission to Islam. Pastor Terry Jones allowed the Quran to burnt in such a public manner may have been a mistake; however its symbolism to expose that Islam is inimical to America’s Christian foundation and inimical to the U.S. Constitution is a valid act.

 

Where is the outrage over how Islam persecutes Christianity in Muslim lands? Christianity is violated by the ability of Muslims to destroy property, kidnap children to force conversion, kidnap women to force conversion or to rape and squelch any form of Christian worship including the open use of the Holy Bible in public. This treatment of Christians occurs all over Muslim dominated nations even in Afghanistan.  

 

The question should be: Is Quran burning by a small group in a small Church an incitement to global hatred or is the open persecution of non-Muslims in Muslim lands incitement?
