France Takes a Bold Step

THE FOLLOWING good news is excerpted from an article by Deborah Weiss entitled, France Gets Serious:

There’s a movement afoot to ban the burqa in Europe. And it just scored another political point in France. On July 13, the lower house in the French Parliament voted overwhelmingly to outlaw wearing burqas and niqabs in public.

On the eve of Bastille Day, which marks the birth of the secular republic of France, the French National Assembly passed a bill to ban full face veils with 335 votes in favor of the bill and only one vote against it. The bill will go to the Senate for a vote in September, where it is expected to pass.

Most Members of Parliament view this bill as a means to liberate women from male subjugation and make a statement for gender equality. Feminist organizations in Europe agree. In France, which has the largest Muslim population in Europe, nine out of ten people support the burqa ban. Those opposing the ban consist primarily of Muslims.

If the bill passes in the Senate, it will be sent directly to the Constitutional Council, France’s highest constitutional authority, for a ruling on its constitutionality. It might also be sent to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasburg, which issues decisions to which France is legally bound.

Many other countries are contemplating burqa bans. Municipalities in Spain, Belgium and Italy have bans already in effect. Additional locations are in varying stages of legislative debate and passage. There is also a growing movement amongst the general public calling for burqa bans in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Denmark.


The Organization, SIOA

NEW YORK, July 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The human rights group Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) has launched a new campaign on taxicabs in Chicago to educate the American people about the horrors of honor killing.

The SIOA ads on Chicago taxis feature photos of honor killing victims with the question, “Is your family threatening you?” and the URL of the SIOA website

While Muslims are not the sole perpetrators of honor killings, a recent survey showed that 91 percent of honor killings worldwide are committed by Muslims, and 84 percent of honor killings in the United States were done by Muslims.

The urgency of raising awareness about honor killing was underscored last week when a Muslim actress who starred in the Harry Potter films, Afshan Azad, was badly beaten by her father and brother in an attempted honor murder. She was dating a non-Muslim.

A manual of Islamic law approved by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, stipulates that “retaliation is obligatory… against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” In other words, Islamic law mandates no penalty for a parent who kills his child.

Western Europe Fights Islamization

AN ARTICLE by Ryan Mauro, which listed European efforts to stop the encroachment of Sharia, and listed them all in one article, one after another, was like an inspiring tour de force. Check it out:

France took the first step in trying to stop the spread of Islam by banning any religious symbols from being worn in public schools, which included the headscarves worn by many Muslim women. This caused outrage in the Muslim world, and President Obama criticized it during his address in Cairo. Then in November, the Swiss voted in favor of banning the construction of minarets on mosques. This has sparked major movements on the continent to take further measures that would have been unthinkable a decade ago.

One by one, the countries of Europe are placing restrictions on wearing the burqas and niqabs in government buildings or even in public. In April, Belgium became the first of them to pass an all-encompassing ban, and the French Council of Ministers followed by passing a similar ban that the National Assembly has just approved. It is expected to pass the Senate in September and then be signed by President Sarkozy.

Now, the Senate in Spain has passed a motion calling on the government to completely ban the wearing of the veil in public, and several municipalities in Spain have also placed restrictions on the burqa, although the parliament of Catalonia has switched its initial vote in favor of a ban. The Senate’s motion went further than what the ruling Socialist government wanted, which only sought to stop the veils from being worn in public buildings. There are growing movements with varying success in Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and Italy for placing restrictions on the face veils. A battle over Sharia courts should be expected in the coming years, which Norway is taking the lead on. The Foreign Minister, who is the head of a panel on integration, has just expressed his opposition to them, saying “desegregation is our society’s biggest social challenge.”

Political parties that express a hard line on assimilation and Islam are gaining in the polls. A new Poll poll found that bans on the face veils are supported by a strong majority of Western Europeans. Eighty-two percent of the French, 71 percent of the Germans, 62 percent of the British and 59 percent of the Spanish are in favor of such a law.

The Freedom Party of Geert Wilders came in third in last month’s general elections in the Netherlands, expanding their number of seats from nine to 24. Wilders rightfully said that his party was “the biggest winner today.”

Dr. Rich Swier

MOST, IF NOT ALL, of the 67 county school districts in Florida use this same world history textbook. The textbook is fatally flawed, historically inaccurate and may violate the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitution according to a comprehensive study of the textbook done by Dr. Terri K. Wonder (Click Here to read the study as a PDF document).

This textbook has an anti-Western, anti-capitalist, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish bias. Conversely it promotes Eastern and Middle Eastern Cultures, promotes Islam as a religion, promotes socialism and fails to address world history in a historically accurate manner.

Sarasota County ACT! for America Chapter Leader, Dr. Rich Swier, has approached the local School Board and asked that World History: Patterns of Interaction be removed from the district approved list of instructional materials. His work has lead to a historic event — the Sarasota County School Board will hear an appeal to the Superintendent of the Sarasota County School District's decision to deny Dr. Swier's complaint.

UC Irvine Suspends MSU

ISRAELI AMBASSADOR Michael Oren spoke at UC Irvine. According to the disciplinary committee’s findings, members of the Muslim Student Union (MSU) disrupted the speech by standing up and yelling, one after the other, creating a chaotic situation in which the speaker could not continue.

This event takes place against a backdrop of disruptive campus action by the MSU. Over the past several years, they've organized demonstrations against Israel and on behalf of Palestinian and jihadi groups that have angered both the university and the surrounding community.

Efforts on the part of Islamic supremacist student groups to suppress free speech on campus have intensified in recent years. While attempting to deliver an address at UC Berkeley, Daniel Pipes was shouted down and obstructed by students from the Muslim Students Association and Students for Justice in Palestine who willfully disregarded signs posted outside the lecture hall warning that no banners, signs, shouting or violence would be allowed during the speech.

In another incident, Nonie Darwish, a critic of Islamic supremacism, was greeted by an unruly mob at Berkeley who shouted “Fascist! Fascist! Fascist!” at her and “You are nothing but a tool for the imperialism of the United States! You are here to spread racist filth on our Arab brothers and sisters!” When Darwish spoke at Boston University, someone deliberately lit a fire in a restroom near the site of her speech, 15 minutes before it was scheduled to begin. In none of these cases did the offenders face serious repercussions for their actions.

But UC Irvine investigated the incident and concluded that, “The disruptions were planned, orchestrated and coordinated in advance by the Muslim Student Union,” and noted that during one meeting prior to Oren’s speech MSU members had discussed how to “send the speaker a message – our goal should be that he knows that he can’t just go to a campus and say whatever he wants.”

The committee further found that following the disruption of Oren’s speech, the MSU engineered a cover-up and instructed its membership to lie about the organization’s involvement in the protests.

As a result of its investigation, the disciplinary committee decided to suspend the Muslim Student Union for one year. This is a good precedent to set for other campuses.

Norway Bans Sharia Law

GOOD NEWS from Loganswarning:

First the state of Louisiana banned Sharia Law, and the state of Oklahoma is in the process of banning it as well. Now we look across the pond to Europe, where the problems with Islam are much worse, and we see that Norway has done what the Brits need to do. Hopefully this will get the ball rolling across Europe.

Jonas Gahr Støre, Norway's Foreign Minister, has totally discounted the idea of establishing a Sharia council in Norway. He says a parallel court system is out of the question, arguing it does nothing to help integration.

“We’re a constitutional state based on democracy, freedom of speech and religion, as well as equal opportunities and status,” says Støre.

THE FEDERAL Bureau of Investigation has foiled yet another Jihadi plot — which would have been the worst attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. Three Jihadis planned to simultaneously blow themselves up at three different locations on New York subways at rush hour, in order to kill as many non-Muslims as possible.

The three were trained in Pakistan. Suspicious e-mails tipped off intelligence officers and launched "Operation High Rise," an FBI investigation that had to come together within days. Agents scrambled as one of the suicide bombers sped toward New York, armed with about two pounds of a powerful explosive.

New York City Voters

NEW YORK CITY voters, by an almost 2-to-1 ratio, oppose a plan by a Muslim group to build a mosque and cultural center two blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

The survey of 1,183 registered voters in New York, conducted from June 21 to June 28, has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.

Mark Hass and EducateUSA

MARK HASS is an ACT Chapter Leader for Silicon Valley, and Director of EducateUSA. He identified the MSA (Muslim Students Association) at his daughter's school as a threat in his local community, and formulated a strategy to a) politely educate local school boards and local government, and b) to let them know that once they were politely informed and made aware of the affiliations and activities of the MSA, they would be held accountable for that knowledge.

Mark is using testimony and findings from the HLF (Holy Land Foundation) trial and convictions, including the list of 'unindicted co-conspirators' and ties to Muslim Brotherhood, etc. In addition, he recently added info from the CAIR investigations. His strategy has undergone several iterations and legal reviews.

And he is mentoring a group of citizen warriors, providing outstanding leadership, conviction and purpose.


Rep. Ernest Wooton

Rep. Ernest Wooton from Belle Chase, Louisiana authored two bills that were approved by Louisiana's legislative committee.

Says James Gill: "One of Wooton's bills, which provides that no foreign law shall be applied here if it violates a right guaranteed by the American Constitution, is by any rational measure superfluous. But it is not unknown for immigrant litigants to invoke the tenets of Sharia to which, the committee was told, the Maryland courts deferred in a child custody case.

"The Louisiana Supreme Court has so far insisted that cases in America are settled according to American law, but the committee figured it was wise to commit future jurists to that sound principle."

It is a Muslim's Islamic duty to work toward the establishment of Sharia law wherever they are. And they do. The pressure is unrelenting. Where they cannot openly engage in aggression, they wage jihad by gaining concessions. That's why Wooton's bill is important and that's why I hope governing bodies all over the world follow Louisiana's example.

Charles Krauthammer

Every once in awhile someone writes a piece so clear and so persuasive, it is spontaneously shared far and wide and changes peoples' minds. Or at least loosens their self-righteous certainty, opening the way for new knowledge to leak in. Charles Krauthammer's article, Outreach, Yes. Apology, No. is just such a piece.

The article is about two comments Obama made, and how those comments reflect Obama's and many others' lack of knowledge about recent history. Obama's comments implied that the United States should apologize to the Muslim world for our disrespect of them. Here are a few excerpts from Krauthammer's piece:
In these most recent 20 years — the alleged winter of our disrespect of the Islamic world — America did not just respect Muslims, it bled for them. It engaged in five military campaigns, every one of which involved — and resulted in — the liberation of a Muslim people: Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq.

The two Balkan interventions — as well as the failed 1992-93 Somalia intervention to feed starving African Muslims (43 Americans were killed) — were humanitarian exercises of the highest order, there being no significant U.S. strategic interest at stake. In these 20 years, this nation has done more for suffering and oppressed Muslims than any nation, Muslim or non-Muslim, anywhere on Earth. Why are we apologizing?

Oklahoma Rep. Rex Duncan

REP. DUNCAN is the primary author of HJR 1056, a proposal to amend Article 7, Section 1 of the Oklahoma Constitution, making the state courts rely on federal and state laws when deciding cases and forbidding the courts from using Sharia law when making rulings.

Oklahoma is the first state to pass such legislation.

Check out a short article about it on one of my favorite blogs: Oklahoma Rep. Duncan calls for preemptive strike on Sharia.

Vijay Kumar

TODAY WE HAVE a very different newletter, not because it deals with Islam and politics, but because it is written by a politician — Vijay Kumar is running for Congress in Tennessees' 5th District. His billboards say "Defeat Universal Jihad." Imagine for a moment, that we had elected officials who actually knew who Mohammed was and what the true nature of jihad is. Instead, we have officials who believe Islam has been maligned and misunderstood and if we are just "nice" enough, they will love us.

ISRAEL IS THE TARGET of Islam's Universal Jihadists, whether they come from Turkey, Palestine, Lancashire, the United Nations, Maine, or Sweden. Islam's own Syed Qutb said it best: "A Muslim has no nationality except his belief." The exact same statement applies to the allies and supporters of Islam's Universal Jihadists.

That's why all the talk about Gaza and Palestinians and Turkey and "humanitarian aid" is pure fraud and nothing but fraud, all merely part of the Islamic Universal Jihad against Israel and everything it stands for. The Muslims involved in the attacks on Israel — no matter what piece of land they call home — care nothing for manmade geographical boundaries, just as they care nothing for manmade laws, or, for that matter, human life.

What they care about is wiping Israel and everything it stands for off the face of the Earth. That is their goal. The one thing that Israel stands for that drives the Universal Jihadists of the Middle East mad — however short a trip that may be — is the right and freedom of a human being to be something other than Muslim. Universal Jihadists are dedicated to wiping such freedom from the face of the Earth. That's why their overtly stated goal is to destroy Israel and the Jews. It is pure, seething hatred.

The "humanitarian aid" mission these Universal Jihadists and their liberal handmaidens are parading before the world press is nothing but a flotilla of pure, seething hatred, and it is a criminal fraud on Israel and on the world. It is actually a massive propaganda mission whose sole purpose is to smear and defame Israel, and weaken it for future attacks.

For those people of reason in the world who care about facts instead of hysterical Jihadist propaganda, over a million tons of humanitarian supplies have gone into Gaza through Israel in the last 18 months. That's nearly a full ton of supplies for every man, woman, and child in all of Gaza!

So who is lying? The Jihadists and their liberal "friends" fraudulently pretending to be on a "humanitarian aid" mission are lying. That shouldn't be a surprise: Islam demands that Muslims lie to non-Muslims if it benefits Universal Jihad and the Islamic goal of world domination.

Hamas is just one arm of Universal Jihad, and they've sent over 10,000 mortars and rockets into Israel. Why? Pure, seething hatred, that's why.

Israel is completely within its legal rights under international law to have mounted the Gaza blockade, and to have enforced it in international waters by stopping the Jihadist flotilla of pure, seething hatred fraudulently calling itself a "humanitarian aid" mission.

But the Universal Jihadists surrounding Israel on every side care nothing whatsoever about "international law." That, after all, is just more man-made law, and means absolutely nothing to the Jihadists, who honor only the allegedly "divine law" of the Quran and the Sunnah: Shariah law.

Islam's own Syed Qutb said it clearly: "There is only one law which ought to be followed, and that is the Shariah."

Islam's own Syed Qutb also exposed the complete fraud being perpetrated by Hamas and the rest of the Jihadist liars claiming that Gaza, and even Israel, are somehow important for the land to Muslims: "The homeland of the Muslim, in which he lives and which he defends, is not a piece of land; the nationality of the Muslim, by which he is identified, is not the nationality determined by a government." So it's all Jihadist fraud, and nothing but fraud.

The real driving force behind it is the one that has perpetuated 1400 years of the same kind of aggression, invasion, war, terrorism, slaughter, propaganda, and conquest of entire civilizations, such as Egypt, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran: it is Universal Jihad, the eternal Islamic quest for complete world domination.

Israel is just the next most important target in this 1400-year war against mankind and civilization.

The "humanitarian aid" mission is a Universal Jihad war flotilla, and it is nothing else. Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi, AKP) is the Turkish headquarters for Universal Jihad. The 10,000 rockets and mortars thrown by Hamas at Israel are missiles of Universal Jihad. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is the American headquarters of Universal Jihad. The Muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan flooding the world with heroin (which is only sold to non-Muslims) are doing their part for Universal Jihad. The Iranian madman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad calling for Israel to be "wiped off the face of the map" is the voice of Universal Jihad.

Universal Jihad is not only a declared war on Israel, it is a declared war on the United States and on our Constitution.

And to our eternal shame, our own President, Barack Hussein Obama, is now aiding and abetting Universal Jihad by his words and actions, and has turned his back on Israel.

I support Israel absolutely and unconditionally. I decry and denounce Universal Jihad as the most hateful, destructive, amoral, and vicious assault on mankind and human rights and freedoms that the world has ever known.

Civilus Defendus

SHE'S A ONE-WOMAN ARMY. The author of Citizen's Declaration and Plea of Relief, Civilus Defendus has written and posted the declaration, made it into a petition, which she has emailed, s-mailed, and faxed to Anti-Terror Caucus members, state representatives, Fox News, ACT for America, Center for Security Policy, and many anti-jihad bloggers including Robert Spencer and Bill Warner.

She also authored a piece called Why We Must Resist (PDF) and sent that to each member of the House Homeland Security Committee, chairs of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. John McCain, and President Obama.

She is planning a trip to Washington DC this April (2010) to meet with federal electeds, Sue Myrick and others. She will hand-deliver 535 hard copies of the Call to Action which includes "Why We Must Resist" and the Citizens' Declaration, and a few copies of Liberty vs. Sharia. She'll be visiting several internet contacts on the East Coast for networking and brainstorming.

She's also been on the G. Gordon Liddy show about 20 times as a caller. They have her on caller ID! She's written to newspapers in the US and UK, magazines, TV news shows, authors, courts, governors, mayors, banks, businesses, numerous elected representatives nationwide, advertising agencies, transit authorities, to "enlighten, support or diplomatically chastise."

And as if that's not enough, she has two websites: Civilus Defendus and Sharia-Free America, the first for commentary and the second to promote political action. And she does all this while still holding down a job and taking care of her family! For her hard work and inspirational example, Civilus Defendus has earned the Citizen Warrior Hero Award.


Mark Thompson

A WRITER for Time Magazine, Mark Thompson, wrote a piece entitled, The Fort Hood Report: Why No Mention of Islam? In it he justifiably criticizes the U.S. military for being too politically correct. All along the career of Major Nidal Malik Hasan, there were clear signs that perhaps this man was a threat to his fellow soldiers and his country, but they were "studiously ignored" because of blind multiculturalism.

Accusing people in government of being willfully ignorant of the basic doctrines of Islam is usually something only bloggers do — not mainstream writers like Mark Thompson. It took courage to say something so politically incorrect, but it needed to be said (and still needs to be said, to as wide an audience as possible), as Thompson has done.

So we officially award Mark Thompson the Citizen Warrior Hero award. Thank you, PinkNeck, for the suggestion.


Bill Gates Tells The Truth

I HAVE BEEN reading The Women's Crusade in the New York Times, and came across the following passage and I knew I had to share it with you.

Bill Gates recalls once being invited to speak in Saudi Arabia and finding himself facing a segregated audience. Four-fifths of the listeners were men, on the left. The remaining one-fifth were women, all covered in black cloaks and veils, on the right. A partition separated the two groups. Toward the end, in the question-and-answer session, a member of the audience noted that Saudi Arabia aimed to be one of the Top 10 countries in the world in technology by 2010 and asked if that was realistic. “Well, if you’re not fully utilizing half the talent in the country,” Gates said, “you’re not going to get too close to the Top 10.” The small group on the right erupted in wild cheering.

Bill Gates is a citizen warrior hero. The article I've quoted here was written by Sheryl WuDunn and Nicholas D. Kristof, the authors of Half the Sky and the creators of the Girl Effect. I urge you to throw yourself into helping girls around the world. Go to the Girl Effect website and get involved. Recruit your friends and family into the cause. This is a purpose we can all get behind. Join the Girl Effect on FaceBook to get updates.
