O'Reilly Takes On Nihad Awad "You Have No Credibility Because Facts Are Facts"

Bill O'Reilly had Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Hamas-linked CAIR (Council for American Islamic Relations), on his Fox News TV show last night, and held Awad to account for last weeks jihadist bombing of the Boston Marathon and other terror attacks being inspired by radical Islam (The Daily Caller).


Awad proceeded to explain his personal emotional state surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing and maintained that he was representative of most Muslim Americans. But O’Reilly charged back, pressing Awad to explain why his religion was the motivation for terrorism.

“Here is where it all goes — I don’t have time for a speech,” O’Reilly said. “You have got to go back and forth with me, OK? You not admitting that radical Islam drives worldwide terrorism puts you in the category where you have no credibility because the facts are the facts. Ninety percent of worldwide terrorism is radical Islam, period. … I don’t know what Islam means to you with all due respect. That’s not the topic.”

Awad attempted to justify his sentiment, which led to a back-and-forth between Awad and O’Reilly.

Partial transcript as follows:
O’REILLY: You just said, you just said that radical Islam is not the driving force of terrorism in the world, when that’s an absurd statement. It’s absurd.
AWAD: I think your statement is absurd because you are trying to redefine religion for me. You are trying to define my faith to me.
O’REILLY: No I’m not. I’m telling you that radical Islamists, under the banner of jihad, are causing the most intense terrorism the earth has ever seen and you are denying it. So either you are na├»ve or I mean, you are just way out of touch. Do you not have a television set?
AWAD: Bill, I think you are just making up some stuff.
O’REILLY: Making it up?
AWAD: I’m telling you Islam is a peaceful religion. Islam is my faith.
O’REILLY: Yeah, what about these jihadists then?
AWAD: Well, also you do not the know the word jihad, what it means. I’m telling you jihad is a legitimate struggle. Those terrorists who are using the word are trying to legitimize their attacks on innocent people.
O’REILLY: Do you know how many of them there are? You have a whole nation of Iran, a whole theocracy that is threatening the world.
AWAD: Let’s not play into their hands and legitimize their attacks.
O’REILLY: Not play into their hands and tell the truth, Mr. Awad.


It appears that what Awad did on O'Reilly's show was practiced taqiyya, where Muslims are permitted to lie in circumstances "that advance the cause Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them." 

CAIR has been linked to the Palestinian terror group Hamas. Awad, in fact, was quoted in 1994 as saying: "I used to support the PLO, and I used to be the President of the General Union of Palestine Students which is part of the PLO here in the United States, but after I researched the situation inside Palestine and outside, I am in support of the Hamas movement more than the PLO."

Awad also spoke at a 2002 so-called "anti-war" rally in Washington DC held by the Marxist group International ANSWER, where the following photo (published here before) was taken. Off to the side while Awad speaks is a yellow flag for the Islamic terrorist group Hezbollah, a group behind the 1983 bombing of the US Marine barracks in Beirut, as well as the kidnappings and hijackings (TWA 847 in 1985).


CAIR has also exerted influence over our law enforcement, like the sanitized FBI manuals which removed "offensive" references to Muslims.

But, according to CAIR, don't believe your lying eyes, or else the Islamophobia card will be played against you.

Bullies At CAIR Try To Shut Down Feb 20 N. VA GOP Women's Group Talk On Sharia & Hijab

Fairfax County (Virginia) School Superintendent Jack Dale deserves a round of applause for refusing to cave in to the bullying demands of the Hamas-linked Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

The superintendent came under fire for renting space at Fairview Elementary School in the Clifton, VA area to the Republican Women of Clifton, who will have a speaker at their meeting next week discussing Sharia law and the hijab.

The Washington ComPost posted a very biased article on Feb. 8 that reads more like a CAIR press release instead of a straight news article in a national newspaper.
The notice in the Fairfax Station Patch on Tuesday was brief, but to Laurie Jaghlit it felt like a punch in the gut.
At the next meeting of Republican Women of Clifton, a guest speaker would discuss “the treatment of women in Islamic society and how she believes the Hijab is a catalyst for Islamic terrorism.” The Feb. 20 meeting would take place at Fairview Elementary School, five miles from Jaghlit’s house.
Jaghlit, a 52-year-old grandmother who raised nine children in Fairfax Station and Herndon, wears the hijab, or Islamic head covering. She had heard about talks like this in other parts of the country but had never confronted the issue so close to home.
“If that’s not hateful and inciteful speech, I don’t know what is,” she said. “This is a diverse area. You’d think that hopefully we’d be beyond this."
The ComPost followed up with CAIR spokesmouth Ibrihim Hooper throwing out the usual Islamphobia and bigotry card that is used to bully anyone who dares question radical Islamists and Sharia law. As a typical example of CAIR/Hooper's bullying, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Worcester MA cancelled a talk by Robert Spencer, director of JihadWatch.  It is only near the end of the article that Jaghlit, mentioned in the lede of the ComPost piece, "works part-time for CAIR" and "she and half a dozen other Muslim women who wear the hijab plan to attend the meeting to 'have our non-terrorist voices heard.'"

The only response the ComPost allowed for the GOP Women's club was an e-mail response from Club President Alice Butler-Short, of which they took only a very brief excerpt.

Of course, no where does the ComPost note how the FBI has linked CAIR to Hamas as well as elements of the Muslim Brotherhood, noted in 2007 by Counterterrorism Blog.  CAIR's co-founders Omar Ahmed and Nihad Awad were placed at a 1993 meeting in Philadelphia where Hamas members and supporters strategized ways to kill the Oslo Accords. Hooper has been quoted as saying in 1993, “I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future...But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education.”

James Lafferty, who leads the Virginia Anti-Sharia Task Force, is asking that interested citizens come attend the event next Wednesday night, as a way to counter possible interruption from the CAIR activists. It is important to note that CAIR has had a history showing up in large numbers in an effort to intimidate, as they did with the Fairfax County Planning Commission in 2009.

Obama White House Hosts Radical Islamists

This is pretty frightening (Daily Caller).

White House visitor records show that administration officials have hosted numerous White House meetings with a series of U.S.-based Muslim political groups that have close ties to jihadi groups and push to reduce anti-terrorism investigations.

The visits were discovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which compared the Obama White House’s visitor records with its database of Islamist advocacy groups.
For example, the records show that officials from the Council on American Islamic Relations have visited the White House 20 times, according to the organization’s report.

Members of CAIR were invited to the White House, even though an April 2009 FBI statement said the bureau “does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner” because of its ties to the Hamas jihadi group.
Daily Caller WH Visitor Logs for IPT Report


Administration officials also invited Syrian-born Louay Safi to the White House twice in 2011, even though he had been named an unindicted co-conspirator in two terrorism cases, and had been barred from Fort Hood following the 2009 jihadi attack by a Muslim U.S. Army major.

In contrast, White House officials have not invited Zuhdi Jasser, an Arizona-based, American-born moderate Muslim and former Navy officer.

“We’ve never been invited and nether have any of [the 24 leaders in] our American Islamic Leadership Coalition,” Jasser told The Daily Caller.

The absence of invitations to real Muslim moderates allows White House officials to pretend that members of the well-funded, U.S.-based radical group are moderates, even when they’re linked to the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood, he said.

Jasser’s nonpartisan coalition includes left-wing and feminist Muslims who are frequently criticized by the groups invited to the White House, he said.

“The White House has selectively omitted genuine [Muslim] moderates and instead has picked radical Muslims to meet,” said a statement from Steve Emerson, founder of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

So, as tonight is the final Presidential debate and centers on foreign policy, how can we trust a Presidency that cozies up to groups linked with radical Islamist terror groups?  Is this the reason that the Obama Regime has tried to cover up what was really behind the 9/11/2012 terror attacks in Benghazi that led to the death of our ambassador and three others?

Hamas-Linked CAIR Silences WordPress Blogger Bare Naked Islam

What happened to freedom of speech in America?

First saw this on Gateway Pundit, Zilla of the Resistance has the background:

Bare Naked Islam is a popular and edgy counter-jihad blog that recently found itself in CAIR's cross-hairs because BNI supported the right of home improvement store Lowe's to not be forced to advertise (and pay for said advertising) on a low-rated TV show that tries to whitewash islamic supremacism. CAIR does not like that BNI uses language which does not bow to the cultural marxism of 'political correctness' and tells the truth about the brutal and atrocious crimes against humanity that are committed every single day all over the world by islamic supremacists for islam. So CAIR has been pushing to get the blog Bare Naked Islam shut down, because CAIR hates free speech. I wrote about this a few weeks ago, HERE, and CAIR did manage to get BNI shut down by its host WordPress for about a day, but BNI was back up after removing some comments that visitors had made to the blog that were deemed "offensive". That wasn't good enough for the islamic supremacists who hate free speech though, CAIR (who the federal government has banned the FBI from interacting with due to CAIR's ties to terrorism) has been howling that they want the FBI to investigate BNI and that they want the blog shut down completely.

Today WordPress removed the blog Bare Naked Islam. (h/t iOwnTheWorld and Blazing Cat Fur). It is a sad day in the Dextrosphere and for freedom loving people everywhere. Via Ironic Surrealism:

It is/was a highly successful anti-Islam blog with 15,332,181 hits and counting.
BNI tweets that Hamas/Muslim Brother Hood front group CAIR is the Islamic culprit behind the suspension. Color me not shocked.

BARE NAKED ISLAM has been taken down by WordPress thanks to CAIR terrorists. Looking for a new host now.

Donations can be sent via PayPal here.

I spoke to the owner of BNI via email and she says she'll get the blog back up as soon as she finds a host who is less likely to cave to free speech hating islamobullying; for now you can view a cached page showing the last few BNI posts HERE. The terror-linked, sharia pushing, islamic supremacists at CAIR are quite pleased with themselves about their success in shutting down a blog that told the truth about islamotyranny.

More at American Power. Astute Bloggers writes: TIME TO BOYCOTT SHARIA COMPLIANT WORDPRESS


Hey CAIR!


According to Investigative Project on Terrorism, a federal judge agreed that CAIR has ties to Hamas. CAIR's founder said in 1998 that "The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

Will keep watching this for more developments.

Support Lowes Against Liberal Bullies & CAIR

May I suggest if you have any home repair projects, go by Lowes and show them some support.

Why? They're being called bigots and being attacked by the bigoted bullies on the Left for pulling advertisements from a TV show called "All American Muslim."

Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs also notes that 64 companies total have pulled ads from the show.

Every company is to free to choose where they put their ad dollars. 64 companies have now pulled their ads. And rightly so. It's is not that the show about Muslims. It is that the show was predicated on a lie and the relentless propaganda of Islamic supremacists. Or perhaps advertisers don't wish to advertise on a show whose ratings are in the toilet.

The fact is that the show specifically situates itself as a response to "Islamophobia" -- this was clear from the opening moments of the first show. But it is severely misleading, because it doesn't deal with the kind of Muslims who would ever have caused anyone any concern in the first place. And I have been saying that since the show premiered.

On page 75 of my book, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance, I explain the sinister orgins of the thought-crushing device, "Islamophobia":

The very word “Islamophobia” is a fictional construct, as journalist Claire Berlinski explains, “The neologism ‘Islamophobia’ did not simply emerge ex nihilo. It was invented, deliberately, by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, which is based in Northern Virginia….Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, a former member of the IIIT who has renounced the group in disgust, was an eyewitness to the creation of the word. ‘This loathsome term,’ he writes, ‘is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics.’”85

Discover the Networks reports, "Although the term was coined in the early 1990s, 'Islamophobia' did not become the focus of an active Brotherhood campaign until after 9/11."

Support Lowes. They are taking heat for making the right call. Contact them and buy Lowes gift certificates, hang them on your tree. CONTACT Lowe's at 1-800-445-6937, E-Mail: karen.s.cobb@lowes.com, Robert.A.Niblock@lowes.com, Thomas.J.Lamb@lowes.com, execustservice@lowes.com

So who are the bullies against Lowes? That illiterate crapper Russell Simmons, the washed up Mia Farrow, and the Hamas-linked, unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial, CAIR.

Democrat Jim Moran To Speak At CAIR Banquet With Possible Co-Conspirator Of 1993 WTC Attack

Northern Virginia Congressman Jim "I Like To Hit People" Moron, is going to be speaking at the banquet for the Hamas-linked CAIR this Saturday evening in Crystal City, VA (MuslimLinkPaper, via Weasel Zippers).

On Saturday, October 15, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will hold its annual leadership skills training conference and banquet at the Crystal Gateway Marriott (1700 Jefferson Davis Highway) in Arlington, Va.


With the theme “Making Democracy Work for Everyone,” the evening banquet will feature Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as keynote speakers.

The day-long leadership conference will offer workshops taught by top trainers in their fields. Leadership conference sessions include counteracting Islamophobia and the anti-sharia campaign; answering tough questions about Islam; effective fundraisin; challenging scapegoating of Muslims in the 2012 election; public speaking; and a primer on how civil rights have changed in the last 10 years.

Last year the leadership conference and banquet sold out. No tickets are sold at the door, so register early to reserve a place.

Remember last year, the developer of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque was there and the Jew-hating Helen Thomas was honored as well. I joined members of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force, the mother of a 9/11 victim, as well as Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer at a protest outside.

Moran the Moron was also listed as an invited guest for a 2010 fundraiser for the mosque where two of the 9/11 hijackers attended, and Anwar al-Awlaki (may he rot in Hell) was the Imam. Besides his violent streak, he has been noted for making several anti-Semitic statements about the Iraq War and the "Jewish Lobby." Some have named his as part of a Wahabbi Lobby in Congress.

Also on the bill is Siraj Wahhaj. For those who don't know, Wahhaj (according to Discover the Networks), was named as a possible co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center attack. One month after 9/11, he was quoted as saying:

"[T]his [American] government has already sent in[to] every major [mosque], agent provocateurs. Most of you don't know what that is. All you know is about spies. The government has spies, they have infiltrators. But there's some difference from being a spy and an agent provocateur. What an agent provocateur does, he goes to a [mosque], he looks just like you. He's got a beard just like your beard... And their job is to entrap you no different than the prostitute, the police women dressed as a prostitute, whereas he's coming to the [mosque], dressed as a Muslim."

In September 1991, he stated:

"…And [Allah] declared 'Whoever is at war with my friends, I declare war on them.' ... Your true friend is Allah, the messenger, and those who believe.... Hear what I'm telling you well. The Americans are not your friends ... The Canadians are not your friends ... The Europeans are not your friends. Your friend is Allah, the Messenger and those who believe. These people will never be satisfied with you until you follow their religion ..."

And a member of Congress is going to break bread and share the stage with this person.

As Predicted: Failed Jazz Guitarist/Blogger Uses Oslo Terror To Smear Pamela Geller; Hamas-Linked CAIR Approves

Yesterday, I wrote the following about the Oslo terrorist suspect:
You can bet after that little nugget that Charles "Icarus" Johnson, the failed jazz guitarist / blogger, is going to escalate his personal jihad against Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller even more. That clown ("Icarus" Johnson) has spent the last almost four years trashing his former colleagues, accusing them of being linked to European neo-Nazis, in the fight against global jihad.

Well, that didn't take long. "Icarus" Johnson continued his personal vendetta against Geller yesterday with more smears against her, as Doug Ross @ Journal found out.



As if it couldn't get worse, the Hamas-linked CAIR (also unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial) tweeted Icarus' smear job.



So Charles "Icarus" Johnson can now be seen as a tool of CAIR.  Congratulations Icarus, your de-evolution to dhimmitude has been completed.

MORE: Robert Stacy McCain writes that the shooter was barred from posting at an online forum by Pamela Geller's group, SIOE.  So put that in your hash pipe and smoke it, Icarus!

Thank You Rep. Frank Wolf....Asks For IRS Probe Into CAIR Donations

After living in the districts of the retiring anti-Semite and US military hater Lynn Woolsey, and (briefly) Jim Moron, it's refreshing to live in a district with a US Representative who has their head screwed on straight, such as Virginia's Rep. Frank Wolf.

After the IRS has stripped the Hamas-linked CAIR of their 501(c)3 status, Wolf has now asked the IRS to begin an investigation to donations to CAIR (Fox News).
(Wolf) in a letter to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, requested an investigation into whether the group "may have violated U.S. law in soliciting or accepting money from foreign governments or agents" during the period when CAIR "failed" to file required forms to the IRS.

It's unclear exactly what CAIR failed to file. The group was included earlier this month on a list of 275,000 organizations that the IRS said were losing tax-exempt status because they did not file annual reports for three consecutive years as required by law.

Reached for comment last week, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper described the matter as a "technical paperwork issue" and said CAIR was trying to sort it out with the IRS.

Hooper told FoxNews.com that the organization's accountant says CAIR "filed promptly in the last several years." He said the status problem stems from "questions" over filings dating back to 2006 or 2007.

"We'll be doing whatever's necessary ... to rectify the situation," Hooper said.

CAIR's Nihad Awad, speaks at 2002 ANSWER Rally in Washington DC. Note flag of Islamic terrorist group Hezbollah off to the side

But Wolf cited concern about the possibility of CAIR improperly seeking foreign donations. His request to Shulman cited a purported letter from CAIR Director Nihad Awad to Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi in 2009 asking for his support in launching a "Muslim Peace Foundation" -- that letter would have been sent long before Qaddafi launched attacks on his own people, triggering a NATO-led military campaign to protect civilians. CAIR officials have since come out against Qaddafi.

Wolf also claimed to have "information" indicating CAIR representatives "may have" traveled to Sudan to seek donations from President Omar Bashir.

"I am concerned that Awad and CAIR may be soliciting -- and receiving -- funds from other unsavory foreign governments and organizations, including some that may be sponsors of terror," Wolf wrote.

Of course, CAIR has been the main Muslim-grievance organization who intimidates anyone as "Islamophobic" who dares to question about radical Islam. CAIR was also named as an "unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Nihad Awad of CAIR In 2007 Warned Muslims Against Cooperating With FBI Unless Lawyer Present

The Congressional hearings into Muslim extremism begin today, and there's been a lot of demonization of Rep. Peter King of New York, including death threats, the usual name calling ("McCarthyite" "bigot" "Islamophobe") and moral equivalence by Democrats, the White House and media types.

The White House sent out a representative to speak at a mosque in nearby Sterling, VA the other day, with the typical "terrorism crosses different faiths" lie. But Adam Savit, writing at Breitbart's Big Peace, reveals that CAIR's Nihad Awad spoke to the same mosque in 2007, right after the "Flying Imams" controversy.


CAIR's Nihad Awad, speaking at a 2002 "anti-war" rally in Washington DC, with a Hezbollah flag (Palestinian terror group) off to the side
On May 27, 2007 the ADAMS Center hosted Executive Director Nihad Awad of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to discuss the FBI, hate crimes statistics and Muslims, to an audience he had thought was entirely Muslim. Unknown to Awad, audio of the event was provided to the Center for Security Policy. Awad’s 2007 speech began with complaints about the greater number of hates crimes reported against Jewish victims versus the “very very small percentage” reported against Muslim victims, because it made his job harder as a lobbyist on Capitol Hill:

....Awad went on to advise Muslims to be wary of the FBI and not talk to them except in the presence of a lawyer:


For example, when we advise them not to speak to FBI agents when if they are approached except with the presence of lawyers. Many people take that as a good advice, but they don’t apply it. Also, we remind people that it is very important to cooperate with the government and law enforcement [UNCLEAR] except you have to be very careful that you have rights. These rights are constitutional and you cherish your rights. Many people I know, know these things but in personal application, they don’t do it. So, for example, our organization, [UNCLEAR] in a professional capacity. And I know [UNCLEAR] and others do the same thing. In a professional capacity, we sit down and we discuss issues. We bring complaints. And we ask what have you done for this group, what have you done for that? Let’s move forward. [UNCLEAR] knocks on their doors, this is different in relationship—when you get a knock on your door, you have to be more cautious. You have to be more careful. Because everything you say can be used against you even if you by mistake give false information, that’s criminal.
And it is a crime.


If someone is asking question, for example, “three hours ago, where were you?” And if you give the wrong answer, even innocently that’s considered, technically, false information. And that false information can get you [UNCLEAR] into jail. So in the presence of a lawyer, that [UNCLEAR] legal person puts you on the right track. So you deliver your responsibilities toward law enforcement. But at the same time, you are very careful. Cause some people are nervous. Sometimes they don’t—they don’t know what they mean. And they may land on the ear of the law enforcement as “uh-oh, something’s fishy here.” And they have to say something and have to do something. I know many people who make sometimes stupid jokes. They want just maybe to deflect the attention that they’re anxious or they’re nervous or they’re afraid, so they throw a joke here and there. They don’t mean it. But to the sensitive eye of law enforcement, that is maybe sign of a crime or a criminal or terrorism or a potential suspect that I’m talking to. And sometimes it goes downhill. And people are not trained. So what we do is we tell the community members that we have to be proud, we have to understand the law, be confident, and if you have something—if you have done something wrong, there is a way to deal with it. And if you did not do anything wrong, you should be very confident and don’t get yourself in trouble, you know, by saying unwise things.

"Call Out" WMAL For Silencing Mr. & Mrs. Fred Grandy. Was This Another Scalp For Farid Suleiman?

As an update to my post last night, ACT for America sends the following message from Jim Lafferty and the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force.

Former Congressman Fred Grandy is no longer on WMAL Radio in Washington, DC because he and his wife told the truth about the threat which Shariah and Radical Islam pose to America. Fred Grandy and “Mrs. Fred” interviewed former FBI agents, experts on Shariah law and activists who are fighting radical Islamists in their communities. They told the truth about radical jihadists and their plans to gut the Constitution and destroy America.

On March 2, 2011, WMAL’s management told Grandy he needed to “tone down” any stories on radical Islam. They also told him his wife, an outspoken critic of Islamist infiltration, could not be included in future programs. Fred Grandy refused to accept those conditions and that was his last day on WMAL radio.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in the federal Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial, has complained about Grandy’s outspoken criticism of their organization and other radical groups.
WMAL has a record of yielding to CAIR demands. On two previous occasions, the station removed talk show hosts who had been targeted by CAIR.

Fred Grandy, the First Amendment and the Truth need your voice.

Monday (March 7) and Tuesday (March 8) are “Call Out WMAL Days.” From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each of those days, please call WMAL at (202) 895-2350 and (202) 686-3100 and tell them you will not listen to their station until Fred and Mrs. Fred Grandy return. America expects radio stations to be committed to free speech and the Truth. We expect WMAL to grow a backbone and stand up to CAIR and the other radicals. Call early and often.

Then at 10 a.m. Wednesday, we will meet at WMAL’s studios, 4400 Jenifer St. NW, Washington, DC 20015 with signs to demonstrate our support for Fred Grandy and his wife and their courageous stand against radical Islam.

WMAL Becomes America’s First Shariah-Compliant Radio Station —
No Criticism of Radical Islam and No Women.

WMAL is owned by Citadel Broadcasting Company, who also owns KSFO in the San Francisco Bay Area. Recall that, in about a two year span of time, Citadel fied the on air team of Melanie Morgan and Lee Rodgers.

Jane Jamison, who blogs at Uncoverage, wrote the following at American Thinker after Rodgers was fired last year.

What is most worrisome for the conservative movement is the unspoken reason behind the KSFO firings: It appears that the station ownership, Citadel Broadcasting, led by CEO Farid Suleiman, may be "bowing" to complaints from liberal activists and Muslim sympathizers. Rodgers would rant about "Mooslims" and radical Islam on his show, and he frequently mentioned that the Council on American Islamic Relations was complaining about his views. He hinted at this in a blog posting on Melanie Morgan's website this week after his termination:

I WILL tell you, in all candor, that thanks to Mr. Suleiman's Citadel management, I could no longer proudly say that the company had never told me what to say or what not to say. There was an obvious cave-in to some ultra-left and pro-Muslim groups, making it unlikely that I would have ever renewed my contract with the company, anyway.
Given this history from the former KSFO morning show, was Farid Suleiman calling the shots in telling the Grandys not to discuss radical Islam?

CAIR Silences Fred Grandy At WMAL

Those of you outside Washington DC probably only know of Fred Grandy as the actor who played "Gopher" on The Love Boat. However, he was also a Congressman, "post Love Boat" and has been a host of a great morning show on WMAL-AM in Washington DC, first with Andy Parks and now with Fred Nehman as The Grandy Group.

Well, the unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terror case, CAIR, apparently have put pressure on WMAL to silence Grandy because he was really hitting the topic of radical Islam and Shariah Law hard on his show (Atlas Shrugs).
James Lafferty wrote:

WMAL management has caved to CAIR once again! Fred Grandy is off-the-air because he told the truth about jihadists working within America to destroy our government and subjugate all Americans to Islam.

And Jan P wrote:

Fred Grandy (ex-actor and ex-congressman) regularly informed his audience of the jihad, Sharia and the attacks on western civilization. His wife, “Mrs. Fred” appeared every Friday. Fred has had Carolyn Glick, Brigitte Gabriel, Pamela Geller, Noni Darwish, Walid Phares and others on.

Last Friday, “Mrs. Fred” talked about Obama talking Taqqiya. I looked for the podcast to send around but it never appeared on line. I think this was the last straw for WMAL. His podcasts can be found at http://www.wmal.com/sectional.asp?id=35315

Fred Grandy asked that letters of support be sent to him at fredgrandy@verizon.net.
WMAL's contact information is here as well. Contact them and let them know they should not be giving into the demands of CAIR.

I'll be following this and give any details I can find out. It's pathetic today that in America, scumbags like the Westboro Inbred Cult are given the free speech right to spew hate at the funerals of our fallen, while anyone who dares to question radical Islam is silenced.

Rep. Allen West To CAIR Rep.: "Don't Blow Sunshine Up My Butt"

Video from The Shark Tank (CPAC Blogger of the Year), via Weasel Zippers.

At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression. Congressman West closed his retort by referencing the Fort Hood shootings and 9-11 attacks, saying that his first hand experiences on the battlefield has given him insight into the tactics that Islamists use before telling Hamze not to “try to blow sunshine up my butt” with his criticism of him. West took offense to Hamze’s amateurish criticism of his stance on radical Islam and concluded by telling Mr. Hamze to “put the microphone down and go home.”
I for one, am glad that this patriot is looking out for our nation in Congress.

Republican House Member To Start Investigations Into Radical Islam In America

Back in October, when I attended the protest outside the CAIR Fundraiser (honoring Helen Thomas and featuring 9/11 Victory Mosque developer), I was hearing from people there that Republican House members were promising investigations into radical Islam and groups supporting them.

It appears that is a promise that will (and should) be kept, as Congressman Peter King from New York has announced this is his intention. Of course, the liberal apologists for jihadists, such as the George Soro$ funded Center for American Progress (video below from Weasel Zippers) are bitching.



Also squealing like pigs are the Hamas-linked CAIR, New York's dhimmi Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and the first Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison; all who are throwing around the "McCarthyism" card (never mind that McCarthy was right in principle, but wrong in how he went about it).

Ellison has been linked with CAIR, who were unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land fundraising terror trial, and has spoken at some of their events. One chapter of CAIR in Oklahoma is currently fighting a widely supported voter referendum that would forbid Shariah Law in the State.

So if the Islamic community has nothing to hide, why then the name-calling and resistance to any investigation? Because the Oklahoma CAIR chapter removed the burka covering up CAIR's real intentions--they want Sharia law to replace the United States Constitution, and Islam to become the dominant religion in America.

You wonder how long it will be until Imam Barack Hussein Obama will "stand with them(Muslims) should the political winds shift," as he stated he would in his book, The Audacity of Hope. Will Northern Virginia's top Islamist apologist, "Jihad" Gerry Connolly, attack these Congressmen with the same slander he used against opponents of the Saudi-funded Islamic Saudi Academy?

OUTRAGE: Victory Mosque Developers Want American Taxpayers To Pay For Their 9/11 Desecration

The latest outrage in regards to the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. The developers want the American taxpayer to pay for their monument to Mohammed Atta and his 18 fellow jihadists (NY Post).
The developers behind the proposed Ground Zero mosque have applied for about $5 million in federal grant money set aside for redeveloping downtown Manhattan after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, according to a new report.

The application was submitted as a "community and cultural enhancement" grant, which is a program run by the Lower Manhattan Redevelopment Corp.

Developer Sharif El-Gamal discussed the grant proposal in recent closed-door meetings, according to The Daily Beast.

The revelation that the developers have asked for this grant could reignite outrage about the mosque's proposed location.

"If Imam Feisal and his retinue want know why they're not trusted, here's yet another reason,” Irshad Manji, author of "The Trouble with Islam" and director of the Moral Courage Project at NYU, told The Daily Beast. “The New Yorkers I speak with have questions about Park51. Requesting money from public coffers without engaging the public shows a staggering lack of empathy—especially from a man who says he's all about dialogue."

Remember that Victory Mosque developer El-Gamal was recently at the fundraiser for the Hamas-linked CAIR, who is also an unindicited co-conspirator in the Hold Land Foundation terror funding case.

I'll bet Barack Hussein Obama will be willing to approve the grant.

If one penny of American taxpayer money goes to fund this outrage, the new Congress should immediately put a stop to it.

Most Recent FBI Stats Again Debunk Myth Of Rising Anti-Muslim Bias Crimes

Jonathan S. Tobin writes at Commentary:
Though the success of this claim of Muslim victimhood was largely the result of successful propagandizing by groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is dedicated to promoting the idea that the United States is a foe of Islam, it has become a commonplace assumption that a post-9/11 anti-Muslim backlash was real and that anti-Muslim attacks in this country are a widespread and persistent phenomena. It is this assumption that was the foundation for the belief that a Ground Zero mosque dedicated to reminding Americans not to think ill of Muslims was not only appropriate but also necessary.

...The release of the latest FBI report on hate crimes this week adds more weight to the doubts raised about the mythical backlash against Muslims. The new statistics published on the U.S. Department of Justice website show that there were only 107 reported incidents of anti-Islamic hate crimes in the country during 2009. While each incident (not only actual crimes are reported, as the total published by the FBI includes all those reported or alleged without respect to whether or not the crime was proved to have occurred) is deplorable, this represents only 8 percent of all religious-based bias crimes and less than 2 percent of hate crimes tabulated last year.

Even more to the point, the number of anti-Jewish hate crimes dwarfed again the number of anti-Islamic attacks, as they have every year since such statistics were first kept: 931 anti-Semitic incidents, compared with 107 anti-Islamic incidents, a ratio of better than 8 to 1. The same was true in 2008, when the figures were 1,013 anti-Jewish incidents to 105 anti-Muslim incidents. Indeed, even in 2001, the worst year for anti-Muslim hate crimes, there were still more than twice as many anti-Jewish incidents as those with anti-Islamic motivations. Throughout this period, the vast majority of hate crimes motivated by religion have been directed against Jews, not Muslims.

Despite the constant drumbeat of incitement from those extremists purporting to represent the interests of American Muslims, anti-Islamic hate crimes remain rare occurrences. The idea that anti-Muslim bigotry is a dominant theme in American society or that violent haters have disproportionately victimized believers in Islam is simply without foundation. And far from giving sanction to such bigotry, the hallmark of American discourse since 9/11 has been a conscious effort to disassociate Islam from the war being waged against the West by Islamist terrorists. The new statistics provide fresh proof that the claim of an anti-Muslim backlash is unfounded.

Former TSA Official: Pat Downs Violate 4th Amendment But Must Be Done Anyway

There's nothing like having a former government bureaucrat admit that the new security screenings are a violation of the Constitution, but must be done anyway (Three Fingers of Politics).
In a Nov. 15 interview with the Fox News Channel, former TSA Administrator Mo McGowan admitted that the newly instated TSA pat downs are a violation of the Fourth amendment and said, “Nobody likes having their Fourth amendment violated going through a security line, but the truth of the matter is we’re going to have to do it.”




McGowan left the TSA in 2009 and was the Assistant Administrator for the Office of Security Operations. There he was in charge or the largest non-military workforce in the U.S. Government. McGowan currently is employed by the Command Consulting Group, a private “international advisory firm.”

In the last few weeks the TSA has drawn the ire of both sides of the political spectrum over their use of full-body pat-downs. Many have claimed it has violated their Fourth amendment right, which guards against unreasonable search and seizures. Some have gone so far as to claim they might be committing sexual harassment.
You know what you could do...profile people most likely to be terrorists (and it's not 3 year old children or 70 year old Irish nuns).




Potential terror suspects, according to Janet Incompitano and the Obama DHS

But forget about it! Not only is our government worshiping at the altar of political correctness, but they're facing demands from the Muslim grievance mongers at CAIR (CNS News).
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has issued a travel warning to Muslim airline passengers on U.S. aircraft in response to the Transportation Safety Administration’s "enhanced pat down" policy that went into effect in late October.

CAIR said Muslims who object to full-body scans for religious reasons should know their rights if they are required to undergo a pat-down, including asking for the procedure to be done in a private place. In addition, CAIR offered a “special recommendation” for Muslim women who wear a hijab, telling them they should tell the TSA officer that they may be searched only around the head and neck.
But note that CAIR won't let them search in the crotch area, which is where the Christmas Day Fruit of the Loom bomber (a Muslim) was hiding his explosives.

Well, maybe next time I fly, I'll refuse a pat down on the basis of my Christian faith says only my spouse can touch me below the waist. I'm sure no exceptions will be made on those circumstances.

By Suing Oklahoma, CAIR Exposes To America Their Real Agenda

Oklahoma voters this past Tuesday passed with 70 percent of the vote a ballot initiative that outlaws the use of Shariah law in court cases.

Now, CAIR, the supposed Islamic civil rights group, is going to sue the state for passing this law (WorldNetDaily).

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced today it will file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a state ballot measure that bars judges from considering Islamic law in any ruling.

On Tuesday, with about a dozen other states watching, Oklahoma became the first state to put before voters the proposition that Islamic courts, Islamic law – known as Shariah – and Shariah-based court decisions should be banned.

State Question 755, a constitutional amendment, was approved by 70 percent of Oklahoma voters. But at a news conference today, CAIR-OK Executive Director Muneer Awad called the measure unnecessary and offensive.

"There's no threat," Awad said, according to The Oklahoman newspaper. "It's a legal impossibility."
It happened in New Jersey (Jihad Watch).
Muhammad said: "If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning" (Bukhari 4.54.460).

He also said: "By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel's saddle" (Ibn Majah 1854).

And now a New Jersey judge sees no evidence that a Muslim committed sexual assault of his wife -- not because he didn't do it, but because he was acting on his Islamic beliefs: "This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited."

Luckily, the appellate court overturned this decision, and a Sharia ruling by an American court has not been allowed to stand. This time.
According to Islam, men can also (under certain parameters) beat their wives if they refuse sex.

So any other state who is watching should put forth a similar initiative and pass it, because CAIR just showed America their real agenda--making Islamic law the supreme law of America.

Think I'm not kidding?

Omar Ahmad: Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

Ibrihim Hooper: I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future...But I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education.

Islamic Grievance Mongers CAIR To Ratchet Up Playing The "Islamophobia" Card

No wonder they didn't want any media inside their fundraiser/convention in Arlington this past weekend (CNSNews).
Spurred by the controversies over Quran-burning and the planned Ground Zero mosque, the most visible Islamic advocacy organization in the United States says it is launching a department to deal with “Islamophobia.”

...CAIR, which calls itself “America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization,” said in a statement Monday that its executive director, Nihad Awad, had announced the move at the group’s annual banquet, held in Arlington, Va. on Saturday.

“We have seen a small but vocal group of bigots and hate-mongers manufacture an atmosphere of anti-Islam hysteria through smear campaigns that rely on distortions, misinformation and outright falsehoods,” Awad said.

The statement said the new “Islamophobia” department would produce an annual report tracking “trends in rhetorical attacks on Islam and Muslims and will offer accurate and balanced information to be used in the struggle for tolerance and mutual understanding.”


Mutual understanding, huh? It would have been helpful nine years ago if CAIR and other Muslim organizations would have acted in a manner to reassure the American public that the terrorists who attacked America in the name of Islam on 9/11 did not represent Islam, that they condemned Islamic acts of terrorism, and they would work with authorities to root out any radicalism they encountered. Nine years they could have worked on "American and Islamic relations." Instead, they've spent the last nine years acting as if they're the real victims of 9/11, while waging a war of psychological terrorism towards anyone who dares to question Islamic radicalism and Islamofascism.

First of all, CAIR needs to cut the crap. Statistics show that bias crimes against Muslims are make up only seven percent of religious "hate crimes." The biggest percentage of "hate crimes" (65.7 percent) are committed against Jews.

May I remind you who CAIR honored this past weekend at the same event where they announced their anti-Islamophobia campaign? Helen Thomas. Yes, that Helen Thomas. Tell the Jews to leave Israel, as well as (essentially) go back to the ovens and you'll get an award from CAIR.

So before the grievance mongers at CAIR want to use the bigotry and "hate speech" card, they ought to take a closer look at themselves.

Northern Virginia Patriots Protest Ground Zero Victory Mosque Developer's Appearance At CAIR Fundraiser

Thirty plus patriots (one even from Scotland) showed up earlier this evening outside the Crystal City Marriott in Arlington to protest the appearance of Ground Zero Victory Mosque Developer Sharif El Gamal at the fundraiser for the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR).




The mosque developers and the Imam, Feisal Rauf, have claimed they are "bridgebuilders" and represent "moderate Islam." However, Gamal's attendance at the fundraiser is yet another reason to question their claims. CAIR has been linked to the Islamic terrorist group Hamas, and was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terror funding trial.

One of the people in attendance was Geraldine Davie, whose daughter, Amy Doherty, was killed at the World Trade Center on 9/11. She was 23.

A couple of attendees from the CAIR event talked with Davie (they didn't want their faces on camera), and one even said the whole controversy over the victory mosque was "hurtful," because she believed "Islam had nothing to do with 9/11." The CAIR attendee went into the usual red herring question, "if a mosque shouldn't be there, what should be there?"

A couple of the CAIR attendees took photos or videotaped those of us outside, including some on the inside.
This CAIR attendee in the video below took a photo and then made a weird slashing motion under her chin.

Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) and Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch) were there, as both are leaders of SOIA (Stop Islamization of America).


Channel 4 news was there and filmed their report. I just viewed it on the 11 o'clock news, here's the link:

View more news videos at: http://www.nbcwashington.com/video.

Gamal was "unavailable" for interviews, according to CAIR, and they wouldn't let anyone film in the hotel. The station did interview James Yee, a former US Army Muslim chaplain who had court-martial charges (later dropped) brought against him. Yee slandered us as "being full of hate-speech" and implied we were un-American.

Let me who the real bigots are, Mr. Yee? I saw your friends at CAIR were also honoring anti-Semite Helen Thomas tonight, months after she told a cameraman in May the Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go back to Germany and Poland. So, put The Islamophobic Card in the sheredder, it's way overdrawn, and the fact you said this on film while across the street from us shows just how much of a coward you really are!

And one more thing, Mr. Yee, I don't need a lecture about American values from someone who serves as a propaganda tool for Islamic radicals on their TV networks.

Developer Of Ground-Zero Victory Mosque To Speak At Hamas-Linked CAIR Fundraiser, Oct 9, in Arlington

The developer of the Ground Zero Victory mosque is coming to Arlington, VA in a couple of months to raiser money for an Islamic greivence group linked to Hamas? (WTOP)

In an e-mail announcement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad says developer Sharif El-Gamal will speak at the group's 16th annual fundraising banquet on Oct. 9 in Arlington, Va.

The event is part of the organization's leadership conference billed under the theme "Defining Our Faith, Defending Our Rights." Awad says Islamophobia has become a growing threat to American Muslims and must be "challenged vigorously, methodically and comprehensively."

CAIR's Nihad Awad speaks with the Hezbollah flag off to the side

Who is also being honored at this fundraiser? Uncoverage reports that none other than anti-Semite Helen Thomas, who resigned from the White House Press Room after a video came out saying Jews in Israel should "get the Hell out of Palestine." Tariq Ramadan, who is the grandson of the Muslim Brotherhood founder, is also going to be a speaker.

CAIR has been suspected of ties to the Palestinian terror group Hamas, and was named an "unindicted co-conspirator" in the Holy Land foundation trial, a group which was found to funnel money to Hamas. In 2009, a former Hamas fundraiser spoke at a CAIR function.

Pamela at Atlas Shrugs wrote that she, Robert Spencer and James Lafferty (Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force) will be part of a protest of the event. If you're anywhere near Arlington, VA on Saturday, come on out!
