3 Malaysian churches attacked in 'Allah' dispute

By VIJAY JOSHI, Associated Press Writer Vijay Joshi, Associated Press Writer –
Fri Jan 8, 2:45 pm ET

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Religious tensions in Muslim-majority Malaysia turned
violent Friday with firebomb attacks on three churches following a court
decision that allows Christians to translate God as Allah.

"Allah is only for us," said a poster waved at one of at least two protests
outside mosques in Kuala Lumpur on Friday, the Muslim holy day.

Many Muslims are angry about a Dec. 31 High Court decision overturning a
government ban on Roman Catholics' using "Allah" for God in the Malay-language
edition of their main newspaper, the Herald.

The ruling also applies to the ban's broader applications, such as
Malay-language Bibles, 10,000 copies of which were recently seized by
authorities because they translated God as Allah.

"We will not allow the word Allah to be inscribed in your churches," a speaker
shouted over a loudspeaker at the Kampung Bahru mosque.

The Herald says its Malay edition is read mainly by Christian indigenous
tribes in the remote states of Sabah and Sarawak.

But the government contends that making Allah synonymous with God may confuse
Muslims and ultimately mislead to them into converting to Christianity, a
punishable offense in Malaysia despite a constitution that guarantees freedom
of religion.

It suggests using "Tuhan," but Christians say Tuhan is more like "Lord," and
can't replace "Allah."

Leading Muslim scholars, activists and opposition politicians have supported
the Christians' right to call God Allah, and Friday's protests were relatively
small, with most of the congregation ignoring them.

Still, the unprecedented church attacks compounded the difficulties for a
country that prides itself on having managed to maintain broad harmony among a
mix of racial and religious gaps. About 9 percent of Malaysia's 28 million
people are Christian, including 800,000 Catholics, most of whom are ethnic
Chinese or Indian. Muslims are 60 percent.

Minorities have long complained of discrimination. The government refuses to
allow construction of new churches and temples, court verdicts in religious
disputes usually favor Muslims, and an array of laws guarantee preferential
treatment for Malays, the dominant and largely Muslim ethnic group, in jobs,
housing and education.

"The distrust has always been there but now the minorities in Malaysia feel
that they are under siege," said James Chin, who teaches political science at
the Monash University in Malaysia.

The Allah ban is unusual in the Muslim world. The Arabic word is commonly used
by Christians to describe God in such countries as Egypt and Syria. The
confiscated Bibles came from neighboring Indonesia, an overwhelmingly Muslim
country.

Bassilius Nassour, a Greek Orthodox bishop in Damascus, called the Malaysian
government's position "shameful."

"It shows Malaysia to be a backward, pagan state because God teaches freedom
for everyone, and the word 'Allah' is for everyone," he said.

Some government critics suggest the Allah ban is designed to win back Muslim
voters who deserted Prime Minister Najib Razak's United Malays National
Organization party in the 2008 general election — a charge Najib denies. He
condemned the church attacks and promised the government would "take whatever
steps it can to prevent such acts."

Since the court ruling, hateful comments and threats against Christians have
been posted widely on the Internet, but the attacks in suburban Kuala Lumpur,
the capital, mark the first time that the Allah controversy has resulted in
vandalism.

In the worst incident, the ground-floor office of the three-story Metro
Tabernacle Church was gutted by a firebomb thrown by attackers on motorcycles,
police said. The upstairs prayer halls were undamaged.

Two other churches were attacked hours later, one suffering minor damage while
the other was undamaged.

At least one other church canceled its Friday Mass and locked its doors,
fearing an attack.

"We never know what might happen because the situation is so tense," said the
Rev. Father Paulino Miranda of the Church of Divine Mercy in Shah Alam, the
capital of Selangor state.

In the mean time, there have been lots of tweets on Twitter like the
following, from Egypt:

Muslims fire-bomb Malaysian church for using the word "Allah"
As I have noted here many times, Arabic-speaking Christians were using
the word "Allah" for God from time immemorial -- the whole controversy
over this in Malaysia is just another supremacist initiative. And now
it is getting really ugly.

An update on this story: "Malaysian church fire-bombed ahead of Muslim
protests," from AFP, January 7 (thanks to Pamela):

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - A church in Malaysia has been fire-bombed in an
attack that gutted its ground floor, church officials said Friday,
escalating a dispute over the use of the word "Allah" by non-Muslims.
A fire department official said all stations were on alert for more
blazes at religious buildings, ahead of planned nationwide protests
Friday by Muslim groups angry over the use of the word as a
translation for "God" by Christians.

The three-storey Metro Tabernacle church in suburban Kuala Lumpur,
part of the Assemblies of God movement, was set ablaze in the attack
which took place around midnight, said church leader Peter Yeow, 62.

"Witnesses saw four people smash the glass and throw incendiaries into
the church building. They came on two motorcycles," he told AFP at the
scene as fire department forensic officers picked through the
wreckage.

There were no casualties in the attack on the church, which occupies
the corner lot of a row of shop houses and which Yeow said draws some
1,500 people weekly....

The High Court last week ruled in favour of the Catholic "Herald"
newspaper which has used "Allah" as a translation for "God" in its
Malay-language section. The government has said the word should be
used only by Muslims.

The ruling was suspended on Wednesday pending an appeal, after the
government argued the decision could cause racial conflict in
multicultural Malaysia, where Muslim Malays make up 60 percent of the
population....


Racial? What race is Islam? What race is Christianity?

The Herald's editor Father Lawrence Andrew has warned of a campaign of
intimidation including hacker attacks against the weekly's website,
protest plans and widespread criticism in the media over last week's
ruling.
"We believe these actions (are designed) to create a climate of fear
and a perceived threat to national security so as to pressure the
court in reversing its decision," he said this week....


Looks like it.

No. But I find it fascinating how those who want the US to send
the US Army to engage in humanitarian missions, protecting minorities
around the world, seem suddenly silent when the minority being
attacked, are Christian.

"The Judeo-Christian Death Cult - Why Bush, Cheney, Hagee, Dobson,
From C1, it follows that any associated supporting element is,
apparently, determined by a descriptive fact. On the other hand, the
theory of syntactic features developed earlier does not affect the
structure of the traditional practice of grammarians. It must be
emphasized, once again, that the natural general principle that will
subsume this case cannot be arbitrary in a parasitic gap construction. If
the position of the trace in (99c) were only relatively inaccessible to
movement, a case of semigrammaticalness of a different sort can be defined
in such a way as to impose the requirement that branching is not tolerated
within the dominance scope of a complex symbol.

3 Malaysian churches attacked in 'Allah' dispute
Attacks after Malaysian court rules Christians can worship Allah
Police at Christian church set ablaze in Kuala Lumpur

Richard Lloyd Parry, Asia Editor

There were protests in Malaysia yesterday and four arson attacks on Christian
churches, apparently provoked by a court decision to allow Christians to use
the word Allah.

Police were increasing their patrols of areas around churches and Christian
communities were hiring security guards, after petrol bombs were thrown at
four churches in and around the capital Kuala Lumpur, partially destroying one
of them.

Hours later, Muslim preachers used Friday prayers to object to a court
decision that would allow use of "Allah" as the Malaysian language term for
the Christian God.

“We will not allow the word Allah to be inscribed in your churches,” said one
speaker at the Kampung Bahru mosque in central Kuala Lumpur. Protesters
carried posters reading “Heresy arises from words wrongly used” and “Allah is
only for us”.

The word has been used for centuries in Malaysia, as well as by Christians in
Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Indonesia as the equivalent of the English word God.
But many Malaysian Muslims, who make up 60 per cent of the population, say
that Allah should be reserved to refer exclusively to the Muslim deity and
that use of it in a Biblical context encourages conversion to Christianity, a
crime under the country’s Islamic laws.

The Herald, a Catholic newspaper published in Malaysian, won an appeal nine
days ago against a ruling that banned use of the word by non-Muslims. The
judgment has been suspended in anticipation of an appeal by the Government,
but it has already stirred up Muslim anger in a country with a particular
dread of ethnic and racial confrontation.

The early-morning attack destroyed the first-floor offices of the three-storey
Metro Tabernacle Church, although the worship hall itself was undamaged and
there were no injuries. Petrol bombs were also thrown at three other churches,
one of them Catholic, in the adjacent town of Petaling Jaya, but caused only
minor damage.

“There are witness reports two persons on a motorbike came near the entrance
and hurled in something looking like a petrol bomb,” Kevin Ang, a spokesman
for the Metro Tabernacle Church, said. “Our church is 90 per cent gutted.”

The inspector-general of police, Musa Hassan, said: “Since last night, I have
instructed all patrol cars to patrol all church areas. We are monitoring all
churches.”

In Thursday, the website of the Malaysian judiciary was vandalised by a hacker
with the alias “Brainwash” who left threatening messages apparently related to
the court ruling. “Mess with the best, die like the rest,” read one message.
“Allah only restricted to Muslim only.”

Since the court ruling on New Year’s Eve, the website of the Herald, the
Catholic Church's largest newspaper in the country, has also been vandalised
with profanities by hackers.

Followers of Islam make up a small majority of Malaysia’s 28 million people,
and throughout the country’s short independent history, its rulers have
struggled to contain tensions between Muslim Malays, and the country’s large
Chinese and Indian populations, who follow Christianity, Hinduism and
Buddhism. Most of the readers of the Herald are Christian tribespeople in the
Malaysian states of Sarawak and Sabah in Borneo.

After violent anti-Chinese riots in 1969, the country instituted a policy of
positive discrimination in favour of Malays, which went a long way to contain
tensions but has also provoked resentment among Indians and Chinese. Sharia,
which applies only to Muslims, forbids conversion and mandates harsh
punishments for religious crimes, including caning for those caught consuming
alcohol.

“There should not be a cause for concern because some people have got the idea
that we are out to convert [Muslims], but not at all, there is no question of
this,” the editor of the Herald, Father Lawrence Andrew, said.

“We believe these actions to create a climate of fear and a perceived threat
to national security so as to pressure the court in reversing its decision.”

3 Malaysian churches attacked in 'Allah' dispute
Attacks after Malaysian court rules Christians can worship Allah

More Malaysian churches attacked in Allah dispute

There have been more attacks on churches in Malaysia, in a growing dispute
over the use of the word Allah by non-Muslims.

The police say petrol bombs were thrown at a church and a convent school in
the northern state of Perak, and at a church on the island of Sarawak.

Another church in the south of the country was daubed with black paint.

The attacks come days after four churches near the capital, Kuala Lumpur, were
hit by petrol bombs.

Religious tensions in Malaysia have increased since a court ruled last month
that a Roman Catholic newspaper could use the word Allah in its Malay-language
edition to describe the Christian god.

The petrol bomb thrown at a guard house of a Catholic convent school in the
town of Taiping, about 300km (185 miles) from Kuala Lumpur, did not explode.

Several broken bottles and paint thinners were found at the church next to the
convent and one of the country's oldest Anglican churches, All Saints, also in
Taiping, Reuters news agency reported.

A church and convent were attacked in Taiping
Arson attempts were made at two sites in Taiping

Police and church officials said bricks and stones were thrown at glass
windows of the Good Shepherd Catholic church in Miri, a logging and oil town
in Sarawak state.

In southern Malacca state, the outer wall of the Malacca Baptist Church was
splashed with black paint, police said.

Sarawak and neighbouring Sabah state are home to most of Malaysia's
Christians, who account for 9.1% of the country's 28 million people.

"The situation is under control and the people should not be worried," Home
Minister Hishammuddin Hussein was quoted as saying by state news agency
Bernama.

Correspondents say some of Malaysia's majority Muslim community suspect
Christians of wanting to use the word Allah to encourage Muslims to convert to
Christianity.

The government has appealed against the ruling, in contrast to countries like
Indonesia, Egypt and Syria where Christian minorities freely use the Arabic
word to refer to God.

General secretary of the Council of Churches of Malaysia, Rev Hermen Shastri,
said Christians would not be intimidated by the attacks.

"We all have to stand together to stamp out terror perpetuated by these
extremist groups," he said, according to Associated Press news agency.

The Nazi Roots of Modern Radical Islam

By Tom Knowlton

The recent "Letter to the American People" allegedly authored by Osama
bin Laden is a virtual ideological manifesto for Islamic extremists.
It serves to outline the perceived grievances of radical Muslims
against Israel and the West.

The letter claims, "It is the Muslims who are the inheritors of
Moses," dating the conflict between Jews and Arabs back to the
Biblical conflict between Abraham's two children: his eldest son,
Ishmael (from who Arabs are believed descended), and his younger son,
Isaac (from who Jews are believed descended). Some Muslims believe
that Isaac usurped Ishmael's birthright.

Likewise, prominent imams such as Abu Qatada, Omar Muhammad Bakri, and
Abu Hamza regularly echo this claim that Arabs and Jews have been
bitter enemies from the dawn of time.

However, if one examines the history of the Middle East, there is very
little evidence of constant warring and animosity between Jews and
Arabs.

In fact, when the city of Jerusalem fell to Christian Crusaders in
1099, the defenders of the holy city had been a combined force of Jews
and Muslims. After the Crusaders captured the city, they massacred
Muslim and Jewish citizens alike and left the survivors to flee
Jerusalem. Not until the Muslim hero Saladin defeated the Crusaders in
1187, did the Jewish population even begin to return to Jerusalem.

Jerusalem's Jewish community continued to prosper under the Muslim
Nahmanides in 1267. But the community's true renaissance occurred
during the 15th and 16th centuries, when a large influx of Jews were
welcomed into Jerusalem by the Ottoman Empire after being expelled
from Spain.

For four centuries under Ottoman rule, Arab and Jewish neighborhoods
peacefully coexisted. After the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in World
War I, the region came under British mandate. The early days under the
British also saw relatively peaceful coexistence continuing and
manifesting itself in the form of Arab and Jewish neighborhoods
springing up in the "garden neighborhoods" of Talpiot, Rehavia and
Beit Hakerem.

However, after over 700 years of peaceful coexistence, the true start
of the Arab-Israeli conflict can be dated to 1920 and the rise of one
man, Haj Amin Muhammad Al Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem. As
grand mufti, al Husseini presided as the Imam of the Al Aqsa mosque in
Jerusalem, the highest Muslim authority in the British mandate.

History shows Al Husseini to be a brutal man with aspirations to rule
a pan-Arabic empire in the Middle East. He rose to prominence by
actively eliminating those Jews and Arabs he considered a threat to
his control of Jerusalem's Arab population, and he heavily utilized
anti-Jewish propaganda to polarize the two communities.

In 1920 and again in 1929, Al Husseini incited anti-Jewish riots by
claiming the Jews were plotting to destroy the Al Asqa mosque. The
riots resulted in the massacre of hundreds of Jewish civilians and a
virtual end to the Jewish presence in Hebron.

The 1936 Arab revolt against the British is believed to have been at
least partially funded by Nazi Adolf Eichmann, and Al Husseini again
ordered armed Arab militias to massacre Jewish citizens.

When British authorities finally quelled the rebellion in 1939, Al
Husseini fled to neighboring Iraq and helped to orchestrate a 1941
anti-British jihad. As in Jerusalem, the British successfully put down
the rebellion and Al Husseini fled to Nazi Germany.

Al Husseini found the Nazis to be a strong ideological match with his
anti-Jewish brand of Islam, and schemed with Hitler and the Nazi
hierarchy to create a pro-Nazi pan-Arabic form of government in the
Middle East.

Dr. Serge Trifkovic documents the similarities between Al Husseini's
brand of radical Islam and Nazism in his book The Sword of the
Prophet. He noted parallels in both ideologies: anti-Semitism, quest
for world dominance, demand for the total subordination of the free
will of the individual, belief in the abolishment of the nation-state
in favor of a "higher" community (in Islam the umma or community of
all believers; in Nazism, the herrenvolk or master race), and belief
in undemocratic governance by a "divine" leader (an Islamic caliph, or
Nazi führer).

The Nazis provided Al Husseini with luxurious accommodations in Berlin
and a monthly stipend in excess of $10,000. In return, he regularly
appeared on German radio touting the Jews as the "most fierce enemies
of Muslims," and implored an adoption of the Nazi "final solution" by
Arabs. After the Nazi defeat at El Alamein in 1942, Al Husseini
broadcast radio messages on Radio Berlin calling for continued Arabic
resistance to Allied forces. In time, he came to be known as the
"Fuhrer's Mufti" and the "Arab Fuhrer."

In March 1944, Al Husseini broadcast a call for a jihad to "kill the
Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, history, and
religion."

On numerous occasions, Al Husseini intervened in the fate of European
Jews, most notably blocking Adolph Eichmann's deal with the Red Cross
to exchange Jewish children for German POWs.

Moreover, Al Husseini personally recruited Bosnia Muslims for the
German Waffen SS, including the Skanderberg Division from Albania and
Hanjer Division from Bosnia. The Hanjer (Saber) Division of the Waffen
SS was responsible for the murder of over 90 percent of the
Yugoslavian Jewish population.

SS leader Heinrich Himmler was so pleased with Al Husseini's Muslim
Nazis that he established the Dresden-based Mullah Military School for
their continued recruitment and training. In 1944, Hanjer commandos
parachuted into Tel Aviv and poisoned drinking wells in Jewish
communities in an effort to stir up ethnic tensions.

After the fall of Nazi Germany, Al Husseini fled to Cairo, Egypt in
1946 rather than face war crime charges for his actions in Yugoslavia.
But he continued his operations.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Al Husseini worked closely with a
pro-fascist group in Egypt called Young Egypt. In 1952 Gamal Abdul
Nasser, a prominent member of Young Egypt, was among military officers
who seized control of the Egyptian government from King Fu'ad. Al
Husseini is reported to have been responsible for bringing Otto
Skorzeny, the Nazi commando once labeled by the OSS as "the most
dangerous man in Europe," into the employ of the Nasser government.

Similarly, Al Husseini had a strong influence over the founding
members of both the Iraqi and Syrian Ba'ath party. Strong evidence
exists that al Husseini was instrumental in the arranging of Nazi war
criminal Alois Brunner's employment as an advisor to the Syrian
general staff.

However, al Husseini's central role in the creation of the Palestinian
Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1964 is perhaps his most indelible
mark on the Middle East today.

The radical Imam was the spiritual mentor of the first chairman of the
PLO, Ahmed Shukairi, and saw that much of his ideology was instilled
in the organization. More importantly, Al Husseini used his extensive
connections to recruit financial supporters for the PLO throughout the
Arab world.

Almost 30 years after al Husseini's death in 1974, the Palestinian
people still revere him as a hero and embrace his radical theology.
The "Arab Fuhrer's" close Nazi association and virulent anti-Semitism
is perhaps the reason that Hitler's Meinf Kampf is ranked as the sixth
all-time bestseller among Palestinian Arabs.

Several of his descendants remain active in Palestinian affairs
today.

Al Husseini's grandson, Faisal Husseini, was part of the PLO since
1964 and served as minister without portfolio in the Palestinian
National Authority, with responsibility for Jerusalem until his death
in May 2001.

The radical imam's nephew, Rahman Abdul Rauf el-Qudwa el Husseini, has
been a major player in Palestinian terrorism for almost 40 years. He
was the guiding force behind the merging of the Fatah faction into the
PLO. In 1990, Rahman Abdul Rauf el-Qudwa el Husseini was responsible
for the Palestinian community's support of Iraqi dictator Saddam
Hussein's invasion of Kuwait.

Most Mideast observers today recognize the younger Al Husseini by the
secular name he adopted as his own in 1952, Yasser Arafat.

By the late 1980's many of the PLO's radical Muslim financiers had
become disillusioned with the increasingly secular nature of the
Palestinian movement. Yasser Arafat's support of Saddam Hussein in the
early 1990s strongly angered and prompted many of these extremists in
the Persian Gulf states to reduce or all together withdraw their
financial backing of the PLO.

An astute emerging Sunni terrorist, Osama bin Laden, capitalized upon
Arafat's political misstep and transformed his al Qaeda organization
into the prime recipient of financial support from Sunni Muslim
radicals. That funding has enabled bin Laden to wage terrorist attacks
on western and Israeli interests for over a decade. His most recent
"Letter to the American People" echoed al Husseini's propaganda claim
that "the Israelis are planning to destroy the Al Aqsa mosque."

The is little doubt that throughout history the Arabs and Jews have
encountered the kind of friction that comes from any two distinct
religious or ethnic groups sharing the same geography. However, that
history has largely been one of relatively peaceful coexistence.

The divergence from that pattern occurs in 1920 with the rise of a
virulent anti-Semitic mufti of Jerusalem whose ideology embodied more
similarities to that of Nazi Germany than to the historical Islam of
Saladin or the Ottoman Turks.

The wave of extremist Islam that has plagued the world in the latter
days of the 20th century and into the opening days of the 21st, has
little to do with ancient history or Islam. The cause lays largely at
the feet of Haj Amin Muhammad Al Husseini, who utilized murder and
anti-Semitism to consolidate his power over his fellow Arabs and
further his personal quest to be caliph of the pan-Arab world.

Yes, it has more to do with Nazis than Islam.

Von Poppen was the guy who blew up Big Tom Island in Jersey City,
mastermined the Armenian genocide and then was Hitler's Chancellor.

Don't forget the last suicide bombers were kamikazi. Bushido was the
distortion of Japanese religion by the militarists.

THe fanaticism of these islamofascists is more like the fanaticism or
totalitarians than any religion and ultimately derives from Hegel,
who produced Zapata, Ataturk, Lenin, Mao, Stalin, Chiag kaishek &al

Tiptoeing around Our Problems
By Dr. William Pierce

"We've been talking about the very dangerous situation in the Middle
East recently, just because so much is happening there, and
undoubtedly we'll be talking about it much more in the future. For
that reason I want to make very clear what my motives and sympathies
are, lest I lead anyone astray and be thought a hypocrite for doing
so. First, regarding Palestine: although my sympathies definitely lie
with the Palestinians rather than with the Jews, it is not horror at
what the Jews are doing to the Palestinians that motivates me. What
motivates me is horror that my country is being used by the Jews in
their war against the Palestinians. If America were not involved at
all in the Middle East I still would sympathize with the Palestinians
and I would wish that they could be successful in driving the Jews
into the sea and annihilating the abomination that is Israel, but that
conflict between Jews and Palestinians would not be a major concern
for me. At least, my
concern there would be dwarfed by my concern for problems more
directly involving my own people in America and in Europe and in
southern Africa.

Even now, with money and weapons being supplied by America and used to
slaughter Palestinians, my concern is much less with monsters like
Ariel Sharon who are doing the slaughtering than it is with the filthy
creatures among my own people in America who are collaborating with
Jews here to keep the weapons and money flowing to Sharon -- and are
ready to do whatever else the Jews require of them here or abroad.

So when I tell you about Jews in occupied Palestine shooting
Palestinian children, and disapproval and anger are evident in my
voice, what I really am angry about is that the American people, my
people, are being used for this murderous activity. I am angry that
America's whole foreign policy has been perverted to serve Jewish
interests at the expense of American interests. I am angry that
America's political system has been perverted to ensure that we always
have so-called "leaders," whether Democrat or Republican, who are
dependent on the Jewish media or Jewish money or both for their
election and consequently will do the bidding of the Jews. I am angry
that our whole government is riddled with Jews -- Jews in our Defense
Department, Jews in our State
Department, Jews in our Immigration and Naturalization Service, Jews
in our Justice Department, Jews in the President's speech-writing
staff - who really set the policies of our government behind the
scenes, while the politicians are out front in the spotlight making
speeches and kissing babies - and doing as they're told by the Jews
behind the
scenes.

Did you know that it was a Jewish speechwriter, David Frum, who put
the phrase "axis of evil" in George Bush's mouth to justify America's
ongoing war against Israel's enemies? Did you know that a clique of
Jews in the Defense Department and among George Bush's foreign policy
advisers are the people actually running the so-called "war on terror"
in Afghanistan: a war that they intend to expand to Iraq and any other
Middle Eastern country that gets uppity, in order to make that part of
the world safe for Israel at American expense? Secretary of Defense
Donald Rumsfeld is a front man for his nominal subordinates, Deputy
Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz and Deputy Undersecretary of
Defense for Policy Douglas Feith; and George Bush's official foreign
policy adviser, Condoleezza Rice, helps him meet his Black quota for
the Cabinet, but it is the Jew Richard Perle, chairman of Bush's
Defense Policy Board, who gives him his foreign policy directives.

As I've said on more than one occasion, George Bush is a feckless
nincompoop who couldn't come up with a defense policy or a foreign
policy on his own if he had to -- which is why he's President. The
real policymakers behind the scenes certainly don't want a man in the
White House who has ideas of his own, because those ideas might
conflict with theirs.

And it is nothing but empty sophistry to make a distinction between
Jews in Israel, such as Ariel Sharon and Simon Peres, and the Jews in
Mr. Bush's administration formulating his policies or the Jews
controlling our mass media. They all are Jews, and that's what really
matters.

There are many knowledgeable Americans besides me who think that it's
not a good thing to have Jews using America to advance Israel's
interests at the expense of America's interests. They know how the
system works: how the Jews exert their control through money and media
and a well-entrenched network of Jewish operatives, such as Wolfowitz
and Feith and Perle. And many of these knowledgeable Americans also
understand how Jewish subterfuge and deceit work: they understand that
the Jews throw up a lot of smoke to conceal their control and make it
appear that they have much less influence than they actually do.

Despite this degree of understanding that many knowledgeable Americans
have, there seem to be very few who are willing or able to draw the
necessary conclusions. What I keep seeing are comments about the need
to get the so-called "peace process" going again in the Middle East,
and how there are hardline supporters of Israel who are obstructing
the "peace process" because they think that it will give too much to
the Palestinians or will compromise Israel's security, or whatever.
These knowledgeable Americans seem to believe that if we could just
get around the Jewish hardliners somehow -- if we could just
neutralize Jews such as Wolfowitz and Feith and Perle; if Ariel Sharon
could be replaced by a "moderate" Jewish prime minister -- then the
"peace process" could proceed, America could gradually reduce its
involvement in helping the Jews keep the Palestinians repressed, and
eventually Israel no longer would be using America, and everything
would be rosy. And so these knowledgeable Americans expend all of
their wit and energy in these trivial pursuits.

Listen! Do you know what the most hopeful aspect of the conflict
between Jews and Palestinians is now? It is the ongoing radicalization
of the Muslim masses throughout the whole Middle East. The
collaborator governments in Pakistan, in Egypt, in Saudi Arabia are
terrified of the reaction they see among their own people to what
Ariel Sharon is doing to the Palestinians. When Sharon's Jewish troops
shoot Palestinian children, Muslim mobs riot, and governments that now
collaborate with the United States quake. Ariel Sharon is the best
thing that has happened in the Middle East in the last 54 years.

The Palestinian tactic of suicide bombing is being denounced by every
politician and every media spokesman over here now. It's nothing but
terrorism, they all say. There's no justification at all for suicide
bombing, they tell us. Of course, whenever you hear that sort of
unanimity from the politicians and the media people you should be
suspicious. In fact, suicide bombing is the best tactic for the
Palestinians to use now, because it provokes the Jews to step up
reprisals. And the reprisals radicalize the masses in every country in
the Middle East. If just one of the collaborator governments falls,
the spines of all the rest will be stiffened, and the Bush government
will be far less likely to find collaborators for building its
so-called "coalition" to do the will of the Jews in the Middle East.

Suicide bombers now hardly put a dent in the population of five
million Jews in occupied Palestine, and Sharon's bloody reprisals
hardly put a dent in the overall Palestinian population. But if
conflict of this sort continues until just one collaborator government
is overthrown, that ultimately will be worth more than ten thousand
successful suicide
bombings in which only 20 or so Jews are killed each time. In the long
run there can be no real peace in the Middle East and no end to
America's shameful role there -- and no future for the Palestinian
people -- as long as there is an Israel. There seems to be a better
understanding of these things among knowledgeable Palestinians than
among knowledgeable Americans.

Shallow thinking and the pursuit of trivial goals is even worse among
knowledgeable Americans when it comes to domestic problems. They
really do not want to grasp these problems with both hands and deal
with them in a forthright way. Look, for example, at what uncontrolled
immigration has done and is doing to America. And what do
knowledgeable Americans propose to do about that? Very little, really.
They make much of the fact that several of the al-Qaeda hijackers who
carried out the September 11 attack were in the United States only
because of very lax immigration policies, and so that's a good reason
for tightening up the policies.

How about simply rounding up all illegal aliens immediately -- all 12
million of them -- and booting them and all of their offspring out of
the country without further ado?

Oh, no, no, no! We can't do that! Why not? Well, the media never would
stand for it. The media would be all over anyone who even proposed a
mass expulsion of illegal aliens. They would denounce any political
leader who tried to do that as a "racist" and a "neo-Nazi." And so
knowledgeable Americans, who understand the immigration disaster quite
well, continue tiptoeing around it, afraid to do or even say anything
really significant about it: terrified even to think about really
radical solutions that might actually end the problem. And it's the
same with the rest of our domestic problems. Lots of people understand
these problems and are worried about them, but they won't tackle them
in any
significant way. They let the Jews -- the Jewish media and Jewish
money and the entrenched Jewish network -- have their way, for all
practical purposes.

Why? Why are the Jews permitted to get away with all of their
destructive policies and activities without being challenged or
opposed in any significant way? Part of the reason is that the Jews
are very powerful, and therefore many people are afraid to cross them.
They're afraid of the sort of media reaction I just mentioned in
connection with immigration. Everyone understands that the Jews stick
together and will viciously attack anyone who opposes them. It's the
old story, so aptly expressed by the late-16th-century writer, Sir
John Harington. Harington wrote: "Treason doth never prosper: what's
the reason? For if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Today the
Jewish power structure is
prospering, and none dare oppose it or even call it what it is. Well,
that's only part of the reason Jews are permitted to get away with so
much. There's more to it than that. There's a mystique the Jews have
built very carefully around themselves and nurtured diligently. It is
a mystique of piety and injured innocence. It is a mystique that says
to the Gentile world: "We are a gentle and inoffensive race, and
because of this everyone hates us. We're smart and we work hard and
achieve success, and because of this everyone hates us. We are a
highly moral and ethical race, and because of this everyone hates us.
We are a very talented race, with many gifted members, many geniuses,
and because of this everyone hates us. We are a very altruistic race,
a race of philanthropists who only want to make a better world for
everyone, and because of this everyone hates us."

Many simpletons among the lemmings simply accept these claims at face
value. Many knowledgeable people, however, who can see through these
claims to the real Jews hiding behind them, still hesitate to
challenge them. Part of the Jewish mystique is the so-called
"Holocaust." In its most simpleminded form the "Holocaust" story is
the claim that the
Germans hated the Jews for the reasons I just mentioned -- for their
gentleness and their success and their morality and their talent and
their altruism -- and because of this hatred roasted six million of
them during the Second World War in "gas ovens," to use one of the
Jews' favorite "Holocaust" phrases.

Actually, the "Holocaust" is a very powerful part of the Jewish
mystique. The Jews crafted the "Holocaust" story with great care and
great effort -- well, actually not with as much care as they might
have used: it's as full of holes as a Swiss cheese, but still it is
sufficient to make most people, even those who understand what Jews
are really like, hesitate to attack them. People don't want to be seen
as bullies. They don't want to be seen as so insensitive that they
would criticize the Jews, who already have suffered so much, poor
dears, at the hands of anti-Semites.

In several past broadcasts we've looked at a number of the lies and
exaggerations and distortions that make up the "Holocaust" story.
There are a number of good books available on the subject from the
sponsor of this broadcast, National Vanguard Books, including Norman
Finklestein's excellent book The Holocaust Industry, which I discussed
in an earlier broadcast. The point is that despite the lies, despite
the fact that many knowledgeable Americans are aware of the lies, the
"Holocaust" still serves its purpose for the Jews. People are afraid
of the image conjured up by the "Holocaust."

Perhaps it's that American life is too soft... Whatever the reason,
many otherwise knowledgeable and hardheaded Americans just can't
entertain the idea of rounding up the Jews and getting rid of them,
even when the situation is as urgent as it is in America today. And
really, in the long run that is the only way to solve the Jewish
problem.

The Germans understood that, back in the 1930s, and they had the
courage and the foresight to act on their understanding. Unlike
Americans today, they had an honest government concerned above all
with the survival, welfare, and progress of the German people, and
they began doing what was necessary, forcing the Jews to emigrate
wholesale from Germany beginning in 1933. And because of that the
Jewish propaganda machine has attacked the Germans so viciously, has
so blackened and demonized their image, that today even knowledgeable
people are afraid to be associated with that image. They are afraid to
say that the Germans were right, that the Germans were justified, and
that we need to do the same if we are to survive. So, as I said, the
"Holocaust" story, despite its
glaring discrepancies and lies, still serves as a shield for the Jews;
it still protects them from criticism.

Well, mostly. In parts of Europe not quite as poisoned by Jewish
propaganda as America is, the shield has slipped a bit. A large
British department store chain, Selfridges, has yielded to demands
from anti-Israel demonstrators and has removed from its shelves
products marked "Made in Israel." Last week the second largest
supermarket chain in Norway, Coop Norge -- which is to say, Norway
Coop, announced its decision to boycott all Israeli imports. That
decision was not the result of pressure from anti-Israel demonstrators
but was based on the feeling by Coop Norge management that it would be
immoral to continue supporting the Israeli economy by selling Israeli
imports under the
present circumstances. That is a step forward, though it is a long way
from what is needed.

The Jews, of course, immediately began waving their "Holocaust" story
around, and now, as the boycott movement catches hold in Scandinavia,
they are trying to portray themselves as injured innocents being
attacked once more by "anti-Semites." They are comparing the growing
Scandinavian boycott of Israeli products to the German boycott of
Jewish merchants in the late 1930s. Certainly, a boycott of Israeli
products is a good thing, and the fact that such a boycott is even
thinkable by big businessmen today is a sign that the Jewish mystique
-- and in particular the Jewish "Holocaust" story -- is becoming a bit
shopworn. It no longer has the hypnotic power that it once had -- at
least, in some parts of the world. And I suppose that we should be
happy about that. The unfortunate fact remains, however, that in
America the Jews still have their money and
their media and their entrenched network of bureaucrats, and even if
the "Holocaust" story has lost some of its charm in Europe, it still
keeps most knowledgeable Americans intimidated.

Knowledge isn't enough. Courage and boldness also are necessary.
Honesty and forthrightness are necessary also. Tiptoeing around the
critical issues of our time isn't enough. Tiny reforms in our
disastrous foreign policy and in our disastrous immigration policy and
in a dozen other disastrous policies aren't enough. We need to stop
apologizing to the people who are destroying us and go full bore at
destroying them instead.

Instead of being hypnotized by the "Holocaust" story we need to look
with clear eyes at why there was a need for action against the Jews in
Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. The Jews' claim today that the Germans
were suffering from collective insanity and had no reason for trying
to get the Jews off their backs is as phony as George Bush's claim
that
Osama bin Laden had no reason for attacking America on September 11.

Wherever Jews go they corrupt and destroy. That is their nature,
always and everywhere. Let us be thankful to the Palestinians who now
are making such terrible sacrifices to help the world see what the
Jews are like. And I suppose we also should be thankful to Ariel
Sharon for demonstrating so forthrightly to the world what Jews are
like.

Let us hope that the conflict between Jews and Palestinians
intensifies and lasts long enough to wake up many more of our people
around the world and fill them with disgust at America's continuing
support for the Jews. Let us hope that it lasts long enough to bring
about the overthrow of every collaborationist regime in the Muslim
world. Let us hope that it brings about an airtight oil embargo
against the United States and shuts off the lights in every shopping
mall and every sports stadium in America long enough for the lemmings
to become restless and begin asking questions. Let us hope that it
makes the efforts of every fool and every traitor who is striving for
a resumption of the so-called "peace process" so obviously futile that
these efforts no longer have the power to deceive anyone.

Ultimately, of course, we must not depend on the Palestinian suicide
bombers or on Ariel Sharon's murder squads to do for us what we should
be doing for ourselves. Ultimately we must stop tiptoeing and begin
marching boldly and forthrightly toward solving our own problems."

Algeria: Muslims loot and burn Christian church while police fail to
intervene, saying church lacked permit
"[An] officer denied police were caving in to Islamist pressure,
pointing out that security forces regularly battle Islamist
militants," but that's evidently only when it's in the state's
interest to do so. For that matter, the "authorized venues" scheme is
a means of maintaining control over non-Muslim communities, and as
always, disobedient dhimmis lose their "protected" status when they
step out of line.

"Islamists loot and burn protestant church in Algeria," from the
Associated Press, January 11 (thanks to Sr. Soph):

Islamists looted and burned a Protestant church in Algeria, the
congregation's leader said Monday, suggesting they were inspired by a
recent wave of religious intolerance in the Arab and Muslim world.
The church - hosted in an apartment block in the city of Tizi Ouzou
some 100 kilometers (60 miles) east of Algiers, the Algerian capital -
was ransacked and set ablaze on Saturday night, several Algerian
newspapers said.
The independent El Watan daily published a picture of a smoldering
pile of pulpits and desks that had been brought outside for
destruction. It quoted the pastor of the local Pentecostal community,
Mustapha Krireche, as saying worshippers fled the temple because local
police had left a gathering of anti-Christian rioters unchecked.
The congregation was worshipping in the apartment block because it had
not received official government approval to operate a church.
Mustapha Krim, the head of the Algerian Protestant Church association,
said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Monday that
looters also set fire to a pile of Bibles and religious textbooks, and
desecrated Christian crosses.
He said the looting showed "Islamist intolerance considers there is no
room for Christian religious practices in Algeria," and alleged it was
"fueled by what just happened in Egypt," where six people were killed
in a church shooting during Christmas celebrations. In mainly Muslim
Malaysia, nine churches have also been recently burned down amid
violence against the country's Christian minority.
The Protestant Church in Algeria filed five separate complaints for
arson and looting with local authorities, Krim said Monday.
"Authorities don't want to get involved because they're worried of
getting in trouble with the Islamists," Krim said.
There was no official comment from Algeria's government on the church
looting. A senior police officer in the town of Tizi Ouzou confirmed
the police hadn't intervened, despite the complaints. He said
authorities couldn't intervene because the church hadn't been
authorized as a place of worship [...]
An overwhelmingly Muslim nation where Islam is the religion of state,
Algeria allows the practice of other faiths in authorized venues. A
few Roman Catholic churches are still open, left over from the French
colonial era.
But small Protestant groups have been accused of proselytizing, or
trying to convert Muslims to Christianity, which is illegal in
Algeria. Several Protestants were prosecuted last year for illegally
carrying Bibles or converting people to Christianity.

Judeo Christians think it is the "end times" even though it has been
the "end times" for over two thousand years so far. They think the one
and only hope is for Jesus to return and straighten everything out.
And a big part of the plan is the destroy the world. They think wars
and everything being blown up is a great thing because it means Jesus
will return soon.

Marxists were murderous lowlifes but they said religion is the opium
of the masses. There obviously is some truth to that. Enemies often
have some truth in their arguments. On top of the opium there is the
Jewish propaganda started by Scofield.

Christians are great for telling what some of the problems are, such
as homosexual perversion, feminism etc. But to actually solve these
problems one should look elsewhere. Who do Christians hate the most,
first Hitler and then the Muslims. These are the two who actually
solved the problems that Christians are famous for speaking against.
Maybe the Muslims go a little overboard but they are the opposite of
liberalism. There is no way that "Brokeback Mountain" would be shown
in a Muslim country.

Kevin MacDonald's The Culture of Critique

Reviewed by Stanley Hornbeck

In The Culture of Critique, Kevin MacDonald advances a carefully
researched but extremely controversial thesis: that certain 20th
century intellectual movements -- largely established and led by Jews
-- have changed European societies in fundamental ways and destroyed
the confidence of Western man. He claims that these movements were
designed, consciously or unconsciously, to advance Jewish interests
even though they were presented to non-Jews as universalistic and even
utopian. He concludes that the increasing dominance of these ideas has
had profound political and social consequences that benefited Jews but
caused great harm to gentile societies. This analysis, which he makes
with considerable force, is an unusual indictment of a people
generally thought to be more sinned against than sinning.

The Culture of Critique is the final title in Prof. MacDonald's
massive, three-volume study of Jews and their role in history. The two
previous volumes are A People That Shall Dwell Alone and Separation
and its Discontents, published by Praeger in 1994 and 1998. The series
is written from a sociobiological perspective that views Judaism as a
unique survival strategy that helps Jews compete with other ethnic
groups. Prof. MacDonald, who is a psychologist at the University of
California at Long Beach, explains this perspective in the first
volume, which describes Jews as having a very powerful sense of
uniqueness that has kept them socially and genetically separate from
other peoples. The second volume traces the history of Jewish-gentile
relations, and finds the causes of anti-Semitism primarily in the
almost invariable commercial and intellectual dominance of gentile
societies by Jews and in their refusal to assimilate. The Culture of
Critique brings his analysis into the present century, with an account
of the Jewish role in the radical critique of traditional culture.

The intellectual movements Prof. MacDonald discusses in this volume
are Marxism, Freudian psychoanalysis, the Frankfurt school of
sociology, and Boasian anthropology. Perhaps most relevant from a
racial perspective, he also traces the role of Jews in promoting
multi-culturalism and Third World immigration. Throughout his analysis
Prof. MacDonald reiterates his view that Jews have promoted these
movements as Jews and in the interests of Jews, though they have often
tried to give the impression that they had no distinctive interests of
their own. Therefore Prof. MacDonald's most profound charge against
Jews is not ethnocentrism but dishonesty -- that while claiming to be
working for the good of mankind they have often worked for their own
good and to the detriment of others. While attempting to promote the
brotherhood of man by dissolving the ethnic identification of
gentiles, Jews have maintained precisely the kind of intense group
solidarity they decry as immoral in others.

Celebrating Diversity
Prof. MacDonald claims that one of the most consistent ways in which
Jews have advanced their interests has been to promote pluralism and
diversity -- but only for others. Ever since the 19th century, they
have led movements that tried to discredit the traditional foundations
of gentile society: patriotism, racial loyalty, the Christian basis
for morality, social homogeneity, and sexual restraint. At the same
time, within their own communities, and with regard to the state of
Israel, they have often supported the very institutions they attack in
gentile society.

Why is this in the interests of Jews? Because the parochial group
loyalty characteristic of Jews attracts far less attention in a
society that does not have a cohesive racial and cultural core. The
Jewish determination not to assimilate fully, which accounts for their
survival as a people for thousands for years -- even without a country
-- has invariably attracted unpleasant and even murderous scrutiny in
nations with well -defined national identities. In Prof. MacDonald's
view it is therefore in the interest of Jews to dilute and weaken the
identity of any people among whom they live. Jewish identity can
flower in safety only when gentile identity is weak.

Prof. MacDonald quotes a remarkable passage from Charles Silberman:
"American Jews are committed to cultural tolerance because of their
belief -- one firmly rooted in history -- that Jews are safe only in a
society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well
as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups. It is this belief, for
example, not approval of homosexuality, that leads an overwhelming
majority of American Jews to endorse 'gay rights' and to take a
liberal stance on most other so-called 'social' issues."

He is saying, in effect, that when Jews make the
diversity-is-our-strength argument it is in support of their real goal
of diluting a society's homogeneity so that Jews will feel safe. They
are couching a Jewish agenda in terms they think gentiles will accept.
Likewise, as the second part of the Silberman quotation suggests, Jews
may support deviant movements, not because they think it is good for
the country but because it is good for the Jews.

Prof. Silberman also provides an illuminating quote from a Jewish
economist who thought that republicans had more sensible economic
policies but who voted for the Democratic presidential candidate
anyway. His reason? "I'd rather live in a country governed by the
faces I saw at the Democratic convention than those I saw at the
Republican convention." This man apparently distrusts white gentiles
and voted for a racially mixed party even if its economic policies
were wrong. What is good for Jews appears to come before what is good
for the country.

Earl Raab, former president of heavily Jewish Brandeis University
makes the diversity argument in a slightly different way. Expressing
his satisfaction with the prediction that by the middle of the next
century whites will become a minority, he writes, "We have tipped
beyond the point where a Nazi-Aryan party will be able to prevail in
this country." He is apparently prepared to displace the people and
culture of the founding stock in order to prevent the theoretical rise
of an anti-Jewish regime. Prof. Raab appears to see whites mainly as
potential Nazis, and is willing to sacrifice their culture and
national continuity in order to defuse an imagined threat to Jews.
This passage takes for granted the continued future existence of Jews
as a distinct community even as gentile whites decline in numbers and
influence.

In the same passage, Prof. Raab continues by noting that, "[w]e [Jews]
have been nourishing the American climate of opposition to bigotry for
about half a century. That climate has not yet been perfected, but the
heterogeneous nature of our population tends to make it
irreversible..." -- just as it tends to make the ultimate displacement
of European culture also irreversible.

Prof. MacDonald traces the development of this diversity strategy to
several sources. It is widely recognized that the German-Jewish
immigrant Franz Boas (1858-1942) almost single-handedly established
the current contours of anthropology, ridding it of all biological
explanations for differences in human culture or behavior. Prof.
MacDonald reports that he and his followers -- with the notable
exceptions of Margaret Mead and Ruth Benedict -- were all Jews with
strong Jewish identities: "Jewish identification and the pursuit of
perceived Jewish interests, particularly in advocating an ideology of
cultural pluralism as a model for Western societies, has been the
'invisible subject' of American anthropology."

By 1915, Boas and his students controlled the American Anthropological
Association and by 1926 they headed every major American university
anthropology department. From this position of dominance they promoted
the idea that race and biology are trivial matters, and that
environment counts for everything. They completely recast anthropology
so as to provide intellectual support for open immigration,
integration, and miscegenation. They also laid the foundation for the
idea that because all races have the same potential, the failures of
non-whites must be blamed exclusively on white oppression. The
ultimate conclusion of Boasian anthropology was that since environment
accounts for all human differences, every inequality in achievement
can be eliminated by changing the environment. This has been the
justification for enormous and wasteful government intervention
programs.

The entire "civil rights" movement can be seen as a natural
consequence of the triumph of Boasian thinking. Since all races were
equivalent, separation was immoral. The color line also sharpened
white self-consciousness in ways that might make whites more aware of
Jewish parochialism. Thus it was, according to Prof. MacDonald, that
Jews almost single-handedly launched the desegregation movement.
Without the leadership of Jews, the NAACP might never have been
established, and until 1975 every one of its presidents was a Jew.
Prof. MacDonald reports that in 1917, when the black separatist Marcus
Garvey visited NAACP headquarters, he saw so many white faces that he
stormed out, complaining that it was a white organization.

Prof. MacDonald concludes that the efforts of Jews were crucial to the
"civil rights" transformation of America. He quotes a lawyer for the
American Jewish Congress who claims that "many of these [civil rights]
laws were actually written in the offices of Jewish agencies by Jewish
staff people, introduced by Jewish legislators and pressured into
being by Jewish voters."

While the Boas school was promoting integration and racial
equivalence, it was also critical of, in Prof. MacDonald's words,
"American culture as overly homogeneous, hypocritical, emotionally and
aesthetically repressive (especially with regard to sexuality).
Central to this program was creating ethnographies of idyllic
[Third-World] cultures that were free of the negatively perceived
traits that were attributed to Western culture."

The Role of the anthropologist became one of criticizing everything
about Western society while glorifying everything primitive. Prof.
MacDonald notes that Boasian portrayals of non-Western peoples
deliberately ignored barbarism and cruelty or simply attributed it to
contamination from the West. He sees this as a deliberate attempt to
undermine the confidence of Western societies and to make them
permeable to Third World influences and people. Today, this view is
enshrined in the dogma that America must remain open to immigration
because immigrants bring spirit and energy that natives somehow lack.

Authoritarian Personalities
In order to open European-derived societies to the immigration that
would transform them, it was necessary to discredit racial solidarity
and commitment to tradition. Prof. MacDonald argues that this was the
basic purpose of a group of intellectuals known as the Frankfurt
School. What is properly known as the Institute of Social Research was
founded in Frankfurt, Germany, during the Weimar period by a Jewish
millionaire but was closed down by the Nazis shortly after they took
power. Most of its staff emigrated to the United States and the
institute reconstituted itself at UC Berkeley. The organization was
headed by Max Horkheimer, and its most influential members were T.W.
Adorno, Erich Fromm, and Herbert Marcuse, all of whom had strong
Jewish identities. Horkheimer made no secret of the partisan nature of
the institute's activities: "Research would be able here to transform
itself directly into propaganda," he wrote. (Italics in the original)

Prof. MacDonald devotes many pages to an analysis of The Authoritarian
Personality, which was written by Adorno and appeared in 1950. It was
part of a series called Studies in Prejudice, produced by the
Frankfurt school, which included titles like Anti-Semitism and
Emotional Disorder. The Authoritarian Personality, which was
particularly influential because, according to Prof. MacDonald, the
American Jewish Committee heavily funded its promotion and because
Jewish academics took up its message so enthusiastically.

The book's purpose is to make every group affiliation sound as if it
were a sign of mental disorder. Everything from patriotism to religion
to family -- and race -- loyalty are sign of a dangerous and defective
"authoritarian personality." Because drawing distinctions between
different groups is illegitimate, all group loyalties -- even close
family ties! -- are "prejudice." As Christopher Lasch has written, the
book leads to the conclusion that prejudice "could be eradicated only
by subjecting the American people to what amounted to collective
psychotherapy -- by treating them as inmates of an insane asylum."

But according to Prof. MacDonald it is precisely the kind of group
loyalty, respect for tradition, and consciousness of differences
central to Jewish identity that Horkheimer and Adorno described as
mental illness in gentiles. These writers adopted what eventually
became a favorite Soviet tactic against dissidents: Anyone whose
political views were different from theirs was insane. As Prof.
MacDonald explains, the Frankfurt school never criticized or even
described Jewish group identity -- only that of gentiles: "behavior
that is critical to Judaism as a successful group evolutionary
strategy is conceptualized as pathological in gentiles."

For these Jewish intellectuals, anti-Semitism was also a sign of
mental illness: They concluded that Christian self-denial and
especially sexual repression caused hatred of Jews. The Frankfurt
school was enthusiastic about psycho-analysis, according to which
"Oedipal ambivalence toward the father and anal-sadistic relations in
early childhood are the anti-Semite's irrevocable inheritance."

In addition to ridiculing patriotism and racial identity, the
Frankfurt school glorified promiscuity and Bohemian poverty. Prof.
MacDonald sees the school as a seminal influence: "Certainly many of
the central attitudes of the largely successful 1960s countercultural
revolution find expression in The Authoritarian Personality, including
idealizing rebellion against parents, low-investment sexual
relationships, and scorn for upward social mobility, social status,
family pride, the Christian religion, and patriotism."

Of the interest here, however, is the movement's success in branding
ancient loyalties to nation and race as mental illnesses. Although he
came later, the French-Jewish "deconstructionist" Jacques Derrida was
in the same tradition when he wrote:

"The idea behind deconstruction is to deconstruct the workings of
strong nation-states with powerful immigration policies, to
deconstruct the rhetoric of nationalism, the politics of place, the
metaphysics of native land and native tongue... The idea is to disarm
the bombs... of identity that nation-states build to defend themselves
against the stranger, against Jews and Arabs and immigrants... "

As Prof. MacDonald puts it, "Viewed at its most abstract level, a
fundamental agenda is thus to influence the European-derived peoples
of the United States to view concern about their own demographic and
cultural eclipse as irrational and as an indication of
psychopathology." Needless to say, this project has been successful;
anyone opposed to the displacement of whites is routinely treated as a
mentally unhinged "hate-monger," and whenever whites defend their
group interests they are described as psychologically inadequate. The
irony has not escaped Prof. MacDonald: "The ideology that
ethnocentrism was a form of psychopathology was promulgated by a group
that over its long history had arguably been the most ethnocentric
group among all the cultures of the world."

Immigration
Prof. MacDonald argues that it is entirely natural for Jews to promote
open immigration. It brings about the "diversity" Jews find comforting
and it keeps America open to persecuted co-religionists throughout the
world. He says Jews are the only group that has always fought for mass
immigration; a few European ethnic organizations have made sporadic
efforts to make it easier for their own people to come, but only Jews
have consistently promoted open borders for all comers. Moreover,
whatever disagreements they may have had on other issues, Jews of
every political persuasion have favored high immigration.

This, too, goes back many years, and Prof. MacDonald traces in
considerable detail the sustained Jewish pro-immigration effort.
Israel Zangwill, author of the eponymous 1908 play The Melting Pot,
was of the view that "there is only one way to World Peace, and that
is the absolute abolition of passports, visas, frontiers, custom
houses... " He was nevertheless an ardent Zionist and disapproved of
Jewish intermarriage.

Although the statue of liberty, properly known as Liberty Enlightening
the World, was a gift to the United States from France as a tribute to
American political traditions, the sonnet by the Jewish Emma Lazarus
helped change it into a symbol of immigration. Affixed to the base of
the statue several decades after its construction, the poem welcomes
to America "huddled masses yearning to breath free/The wretched refuse
of your teeming shore."

Prof. MacDonald has discovered that implausible arguments about
diversity being a quintessentially American strength have been made by
Jews for a long time. He reports that in 1948 the American Jewish
Committee was urging Congress to believe that "Americanism is the
spirit behind the welcome that America has traditionally extended to
people of all races, all religions, all nationalities." Of course,
there had never been such a tradition. In 1952, the American Jewish
Congress argued in hearings on immigration that "our national
experience has confirmed beyond a doubt that our very strength lies in
the diversity of our peoples." This, too, was at a time when U.S.
immigration law was still explicitly designed to maintain a white
majority.

It is often said that when the old immigration policy was scrapped in
1965, scarcely anyone knew, and no one predicted, that the new law
would change the racial makeup of the country. Prof. MacDonald
disputes this, arguing that this had been the objective of Jewish
groups from the beginning.

Prof. MacDonald finds that Jews have been the foremost advocates of
immigration in England, France, and Canada, and that Jewish groups
were the most vocal opponents of independence for Quebec. Australian
Jews led the effort to dismantle the "white Australia" policy, one
reason for which was cited in an editorial in the Australian Jewish
Democrat: "The strengthening of multi-cultural or diverse Australia is
also our most effective insurance policy against anti-Semitism. The
day Australia has a Chinese Australian Governor General I would feel
more confident of my freedom to live as a Jewish Australian." Like
Earl Raab writing about the United States, this Australian Jew is
prepared to sacrifice the traditional culture, people, and identity of
Australia to specifically Jewish interests. It would not be surprising
if such an openly expressed objective did not have the opposite effect
from the intended, and increase anti-Jewish sentiment.

Jews and the Left
It is well known that Jews have been traditionally associated with the
left, and Prof. MacDonald investigates this connection in some detail.
Historically it was understandable that Jews should support movements
that advocated overthrowing the existing order. After emancipation,
Jews met resistance from gentile elites who did not want to lose
ground to competitors, and outsiders easily become revolutionaries.
However, in Prof. MacDonald's view, Jewish commitment to leftist
causes has often been motivated by the hope that communism,
especially, would be a tool for combating anti-Semitism, and by
expectation that universalist social solutions would be yet another
way to dissolve gentile loyalties that might exclude Jews. The appeal
of univeralist ideologies is tied to the implicit understanding that
Jewish particularism will be exempt:

"At the extreme, acceptance of a universalist ideology by gentiles
would result in gentiles not perceiving Jews as in a different social
category at all, while nonetheless Jews would be able to maintain a
strong personal identity as Jews."

Prof. MacDonald argues that Jews had specifically Jewish reasons for
supporting the Bolshevik revolution. Czarist Russia was notorious for
its anti-Semitic policies and, during its early years, the Soviet
Union seemed to be the promised land for Jews: it ended state
anti-Semitism, tried to eradicate Christianity, opened opportunities
to individual Jews, and preached a "classless" society in which
Jewishness would presumably attract no negative attention. Moreover,
since Marxism taught that all conflict was economic rather than
ethnic, many Jews believed it heralded the end of anti-Semitism.

Prof. MacDonald emphasizes that although Jewish Communists preached
both atheism and the solidarity of the world's working people, they
took pains to preserve a distinct, secular Jewish identity. He reports
that Lenin himself (who had one Jewish grandparent) approved the
continuation of an explicitly Jewish identity under Communism, and in
1946 the Communist Party of the United States voted a resolution also
supporting Jewish peoplehood in Communist countries. Thus, although
Communism was supposed to be without borders or religion, Jews were
confident that it would make a place for their own group identity. He
writes that despite the official view that all men were to be
brothers, "very few Jews lost their Jewish identity during the entire
soviet era."

Jewish Communists sometimes betrayed remarkable particularism. Prof.
MacDonald quotes Charles Pappoport, the French Communist leader: "The
Jewish people [are] the bearer of all the great ideas of unity and
human community in history... The disappearance of the Jewish people
would signify the death of humankind, the final transformation of man
into a wild beast." This seems to attribute to Jews an elite position
incompatible with "unity and human community."

Prof. MacDonald argues that many Jews began to fall away from
Communism only after Stalin showed himself to be anti-Semitic. And
just as Jews had been the leading revolutionaries in anti-Semitic
pre-Revolutionary Russia, Jews became the leading dissidents in an
anti-Semitic Soviet Union. A similar pattern can be found in the
imposed Communist governments of Eastern Europe, which were largely
dominated by Jews. The majority of the leaders of the Polish Communist
Party, for example, spoke better Yiddish than Polish, and they too
maintained a strong Jewish identity. After the fall of Communism many
stopped being Polish and emigrated to Israel.

Prof. MacDonald writes that in Bela Kun's short-lived 1919 Communist
government of Hungary, 95 percent of the leaders were Jews, and that
at the time of the 1956 uprising Communism was so closely associated
with Jews that the rioting had almost the flavor of a pogrom. He
argues that in the United States as well, the hard core among
Communists and members of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) was
mainly Jewish. Here, too, a revolutionary, atheist, and universalist
world-view was fully compatible with strong identification as Jews.
Prof. MacDonald quotes from a study of American leftists:

"Many Communists, for example, state that they could never have
married a spouse who was not a leftist. When Jews were asked if they
could have married Gentiles, many hesitated, surprised by the
question, and found it difficult to answer. Upon reflection, many
concluded that they had always taken marriage to someone Jewish for
granted." Their commitment as Jews was even more fundamental and
unexamined than their commitment to the left.

Prof. MacDonald reports that many American Jews also abandoned
Communism as it became increasingly anti-Semitic. For a large number,
the Soviet Union's severing of diplomatic ties with Israel during the
1967 war was the last straw. A former SDS activist no doubt spoke for
many when he explained, "If I must choose between the Jewish cause and
a 'progressive' anti-Israel SDS, I shall choose the Jewish cause. If
barricades are erected, I will fight as a Jew." According to Prof.
MacDonald, American neoconservatism can also be described as a surface
shift in external politics that leaves the more fundamental commitment
to Jewish identity unchanged. Thus, former leftists abandoned an
ideology that had turned against Israel and refashioned American
conservatism into a different movement, the one unshakable theme of
which was support for Israel. Neoconservatives also support high
levels of immigration and were active in excluding white racial
identification from the "respectable" right.

Objections
There are many possible objections to Prof. MacDonald's thesis. The
first is that it is largely built on the assumption that Jews are
dishonest. It is always risky to assume one understands the motives of
others better than they do themselves. Jews have traditionally thought
of themselves as a benevolent presence, even as a "light unto the
nations" or a "chosen people." This is echoed today in the Jewish self
image as champions of the excluded and the oppressed. Most of the time
what passes for "social justice" has the effect of undermining the
traditions and loyalties of gentile society, but are Jews deliberately
undermining these things rather than righting what they perceive to be
wrongs?

Prof. MacDonald concedes that many Jews are sincere in their support
for liberal causes, but then escalates his indictment by arguing that
"the best deceivers are those who deceive themselves." In other words,
many Jews who are actually working for Jewish interests have first
convinced themselves otherwise. A Jew who mainly wants America to
become less white may also have convinced himself that America
benefits from a multitude of cultures. Having convinced himself he can
more effectively convince others.

Many Jews, Prof. MacDonald argues, are not even conscious of the
extent to which their Jewishness is central to their identities or
their political views. He quotes Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel on his
surprise at how passionately he embraced the Israeli side during the
1967 war:

"I had not known how Jewish I was." This is an arresting statement
from a man who was thought to be perhaps the greatest Jewish spiritual
leader of his time. And whether or not it affects their politics, Jews
certainly appear to have a very vivid sense of peoplehood. Prof.
MacDonald quotes theologian Eugene Borowitz as saying,"most Jews claim
to be equipped with an interpersonal friend-or-foe sensing device that
enables them to detect the presence of another Jew, despite heavy
camouflage." Always to think in terms of "friends or foe" is no
insignificant matter.

Prof. MacDonald is therefore skeptical of Jewish disavowals: "Surface
declarations of a lack of Jewish identity may be highly misleading."
He notes that Jewish publications write about the power and influence
of American Jews in language Jews would immediately denounce as
"anti-Semitic" if used by gentiles. He agrees with Joseph Sobran, who
has said "they want to be Jews among themselves but resent being seen
as Jews by Gentiles. They want to pursue their own distinct interests
while pretending that they have no such interests ... "

Prof. MacDonald argues that the success of Jewish-led intellectual
movements has been possible only because their Jewish character was
hidden. If multi-culturalism or mass immigration or The Authoritarian
Personality had been promoted by Orthodox Jews in black coats the
Jewish element would have been clear. Prof. MacDonald writes that in
fact, "the Jewish political agenda was not an aspect of the theory and
the theories themselves had no overt Jewish content. Gentile
intellectuals approaching these theories were therefore unlikely to
view them as aspects of Jewish-gentile cultural competition or as an
aspect of a specifically Jewish political agenda." Prof. MacDonald
also claims that Jews have often tried to conceal the Jewish character
of an intellectual movement by recruiting token gentiles for visible
positions as spokesmen. He writes that this tactic was so common in
the American Communist Party that gentiles often saw through it and
resigned.

But how can motives ever be completely known? Prof. MacDonald sets a
difficult test: "The best evidence that individuals have really ceased
to have a Jewish identity is if they choose a political option that
they perceive as clearly not in the interest of Jews as a group. In
the absence of a clearly perceived conflict with Jewish interests, it
remains possible that different political choices among ethnic Jews
are only differences in tactics for how best to achieve Jewish
interests."

This standard may seem unduly harsh -- until it is applied to white
gentiles. Third-World immigration, affirmative action,
anti-discrimination laws, and forced integration are clearly not in
the interests of whites, yet many whites embrace them, thus
demonstrating how completely they have abandoned their racial
identity.

Finally, Prof. MacDonald raises the disturbing possibility that some
Jews, because of centuries of conflict with gentiles, actively hate
gentile society and consciously wish to destroy it: "a fundamental
motivation of Jewish intellectuals involved in social criticism has
simply been hatred of the gentile-dominated power structure perceived
as anti-Semitic." He describes the 19th century German-Jewish poet
Heinrich Heine as "using his skill, reputation and popularity to
undermine the intellectual confidence of the established order."

In defense of this highly provocative view, Prof. MacDonald quotes
Benjamin Disraeli on the effects of centuries of Jewish-gentile
relations on Jews: "They may have become so odious and so hostile to
mankind as to merit for their present conduct, no matter how
occasioned, the obloquy and ill-treatment of the communities in which
they dwell and with which they are scarcely permitted to mingle."

Apart from any questions of motives, however, is the question of
numbers. Jews are a tiny minority in the United States and within that
minority there is disagreement even on matters that clearly affect
Jews. How can Jews possibly be responsible for dramatic changes in the
intellectual landscape? In Prof. MacDonald's view, the explanation
lies in the intelligence, energy, dedication, and cohesiveness of
Jews. He attributes a great deal to the average IQ of Jews -- at 115,
a full standard deviation above the white gentile average -- and to
"their hard work and dedication, their desire to make a mark on the
world, and their desire to rise in the world, engage in personal
promotion, and achieve public acclaim... " He also believes Jews have
worked together unfailingly on any question they consider necessary
for survival:

"Intellectual activity is like any other human endeavor: Cohesive
groups outcompete individual strategies." He notes that there has
never been a time when large numbers of white Americans favored
non-white immigration; it was a cohesive, determined minority that
beat down the disorganized resistance of the majority.

Prof. MacDonald believes that because of the effectiveness of some
Jews, it was not even necessary that most Jews actively support
anti-majoritarian movements, but that Jewish activity was still
decisive. As he puts it, "Jewish-dominated intellectual movements were
a critical factor (necessary condition) for the triumph of the
intellectual left in late twentieth-century Western societies." This,
of course, can never be tested, but there can be no doubt that
American Jews have had a disproportionate effect on the American
intellect. Prof. MacDonald quotes Walter Kerr, writing in 1968, to the
effect that "what has happened since World War II is that the American
sensibility has become part Jewish, perhaps as much Jewish as it is
anything else... The literate American mind has come in some measure
to think Jewishly."

Aside from the question of whether Prof. MacDonald is right is the
further question of what difference it makes if he is right. If
correct, his thesis certainly sheds light on the rapidity with which
whites lost their will. Just a few decades ago whites were a confident
race, proud of their achievements, convinced of their fitness to
dominate the globe. Today they are a declining, apologetic people,
ashamed of their history and not sure even of their claim to lands
they have occupied for centuries. It is very rare for fundamental
concepts to be stood on their heads in the course of just a generation
or two, as has happened with thinking about race. Such speed suggests
there has been something more than natural change.

Christians furious after Egypt arson attacks

Bahgura, EGYPT (AFP)

Residents of a southern Egypt village were furious on Saturday after houses
and shops owned by Coptic Christians were burnt as sectarian tensions flared
in the wake of a deadly drive-by shooting.

Muslim gunmen shot dead six Copts in the nearby town of Nagaa Hammadi on
Wednesday night as worshippers emerged from Christmas Eve mass, one of Egypt's
deadliest sectarian attacks in years in which a policeman was also killed.

" You don't want the truth to come out, you don't want them to see what's
happened "
Villager

On Saturday, men in traditional flowing robes and with crosses tattooed on
their arms surveyed the damage in Bahgura, where shopfronts that were once
blue and green were now charred black after overnight arson attacks.

They charged that Muslim "thugs" who live in the town went on the rampage on
Friday night, lobbing fireballs into Christian-owned shops and some houses.

Muslim residents said the action was in retaliation for the shooting death of
a member of their community, while Christian villagers said a woman from their
community had died in fire attacks on their property.

Security sources denied there had been any deaths.

Past sugarcane fields lining the Nile, riot police and plain-clothed officers
guarded the entrances to villages and towns near Nagaa Hammadi in impoverished
Qena province, which relies entirely on sugar production.

In Bahgura, a crowd of villagers vented their anger to a plain-clothes
policeman, and at least one person lunged forward in an attempt to hit him
before being restrained by other residents.

"You don't want the truth to come out, you don't want them to see what's
happened," one man shouted as police asked reporters to leave town.

Arson attacks
" What can we do? They are protected and we are not "
Villager

Christian homes and shops were burned by Muslims, the villagers charged.

"They are Muslims and they live in this village," one man said.

"What can we do? They are protected and we are not!" shouted another.

Christians in Bahgura, and in Nagaa Hammadi where the Christmas Eve killings
took place, are convinced that the authorities are turning a blind eye to the
sectarian violence.

Some even accuse the authorities of actively protecting Muslims they say are
behind the simmering tensions.

The interior ministry on Friday announced the capture of three suspects from
Wednesday's shooting, including Nagaa Hammadi resident Mohammed al-Kamuni,
known locally by his nickname Hamam.

But the ministry announcement merely left Copts demanding more answers.

"We all know Hamam," one Christian resident of Nagaa Hammadi told AFP. "He's a
hired thug. We want to know who is really behind the shooting."

The Nagaa Hammadi attack was the deadliest since 20 Copts were killed in
sectarian clashes in 2000, also in southern Egypt.

Copts, who account for nearly 10 percent of Egypt's population of 80 million,
are the Middle East's largest Christian community but complain of routine
harassment and systematic discrimination and marginalisation.

In the aftermath of the Nagaa Hammadi killings, many Copts fear a new outbreak
of violence and are unwilling to tone down their anger at what they say is a
government attempt to hush up Egypt's sectarian problem.

"The only reason things remain quiet is because of the heavy hand of security.
Remove that hand and things will blow up," Malaak, 22, told AFP, declining to
give her surname.

Another Christian, who also asked not to be identified, said: "The problem
between Muslims and Christians is huge. And the police, security and
politicians are all involved

By Jim Brown

Christian radio talk-show host Janet Parshall, a high-profile American
evangelical known for her strong support of Israel, has dropped out of
a Jerusalem conference sponsored by a Christian caucus of the Israeli
Parliament. Parshall says she decided not to speak at the conference
after she learned that the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus "condemns"
and does not associate with groups that share the gospel of Jesus
Christ.
Parshall says she is also troubled that the strict religious political
party Shas has yet again introduced legislation in the Knesset that
would give up to a one-year prison sentence for people who share the
gospel in Israel. "I thought, wait a minute: we can't just blindly
support Israel," she observes. "We have to be able to tell them, as a
friend, [that] you can't do that. You can't silence us."
The Christian radio commentator says Israel understands by now who
evangelical Christians are and that their very nomenclature as
evangelical Christians "means that we share the love of Jesus Christ."
Individual Israelis may not accept Jesus as the Messiah, she notes,
but they "cannot silence us from sharing [the gospel] with whomever
might be interested in that message."
Also, Parshall points out, there is the added problem of censoring
Christian evangelism, i.e., that "as Israel begins to move deeper and
deeper in that direction, they start to replicate their Islamic
neighbors." The talk-radio host says the Apostle Paul was given the
exact same message in Jerusalem, told to "stop talking about the empty
grave." But Paul did not follow that dictate, the American evangelical
asserts, and neither will she.
As a staunch evangelical supporter of the Jewish state, Parshall says
she has never run into such a dilemma at a pro-Israel conference
before. Meanwhile, the evangelical spokeswoman notes, she believes an
"evolution" has occurred in the Christian pro-Israel lobby, often
characterized by "a kind of blind support that says no matter what
Israel does, Israel can do no wrong."
However, Parshall contends, "I don't believe that of our government
and I certainly don't believe that of the Israeli government. And
friends tell friends, in love, when they see things that they think
are wrong."
But Parshall says there are some in the Christian pro-Israel lobby who
harbor such a "blind allegiance" to Israel that they even foster a
belief that there is a different plan of salvation for the Jews.

Egypt State Security intensifies intimidation of Coptic Christians,
arresting over 100 without charge
"Arrests of Copts after every sedition is the usual scenario as a
pressure card in the hands of State Security to force the church and
Copts to accept 'reconciliation', in which Coptic victims give up all
criminal and civil charges against the perpetrators."

"Over 100 Coptic Christian Teenagers Arrested in Egypt," by Mary
Abdelmassih for AINA, January 13:

Egypt (AINA) -- Egyptian State Security has intensified its
intimidation of the Coptic Church and Christians in Nag Hammadi, and
neighboring Bahgoura, by carrying out random arrests of Christian
youth. The campaign against Christians started on Friday January 7,
2010 and is continuing; multiple members of families have been
arrested without warrants. Most arrests are being carried at dawn.
More than one hundred Christian youth have been arrested without
charge.
Arrests of Copts after every sedition is the usual scenario as a
pressure card in the hands of State Security to force the church and
Copts to accept "reconciliation", in which Coptic victims give up all
criminal and civil charges against the perpetrators. Because of the
reaction in Egypt and worldwide to the shootings and the role of the
State Security, Bishop Kyrollos was asked issue statements downplaying
the negligence of State Security. It is believed the arrests of the
Coptic youth is a pressure tactic to force him to recant his
accusations....

Judeo Christians think it is the "end times" even though it has been
the "end times" for over two thousand years so far. They think the one
and only hope is for Jesus to return and straighten everything out.
And a big part of the plan is the destroy the world. They think wars
and everything being blown up is a great thing because it means Jesus
will return soon.

Marxists were murderous lowlifes but they said religion is the opium
of the masses. There obviously is some truth to that. Enemies often
have some truth in their arguments. On top of the opium there is the
Jewish propaganda started by Scofield.

Christians are great for telling what some of the problems are, such
as homosexual perversion, feminism etc. But to actually solve these
problems one should look elsewhere. Who do Christians hate the most,
first Hitler and then the Muslims. These are the two who actually
solved the problems that Christians are famous for speaking against.
Maybe the Muslims go a little overboard but they are the opposite of
liberalism. There is no way that "Brokeback Mountain" would be shown
in a Muslim country.

Three decades ago, shortly after Sadat was killed, I told a Coptic
chum about my family's torments from communists. He expressed
satisfaction that Sadat kept the COptics safe from similar
misfortunes. Last I heard, he lived in Scandinavia, so I guess things
aren't well..

Still, you have to remember Faruk engaged in pogroms against Greeks to
distract from accusations of his molesting the daughter of TIme
Magazine's Luce.

"I ask you to consider the following:

Imagine if the rulers of a Mideast nation such as Syria, and I am not
simply speaking about a gang of radicals in that nation, but the
actual government ministers of this Mideast nation, launched terrorist
attacks against American civilian installations.

Imagine if the Syrian Government sent terrorists into Egypt to
firebomb American theaters and libraries and treacherously plotted to
blame the attacks on Egypt so that the United States would go to war
against that nation.

If successful, the treacherous plan would harm America even more than
the terrorist attacks themselves, because even more American blood and
treasure would be spilled in a devastating war on an innocent nation!

Imagine that the premature explosion of the one of the Syrian agent's
bombs led to the capture of all the Syrian operatives and ultimately
caused a complete exposure of Syria's terrorism against America.

In fact, imagine that the failed plot became so exposed that the
Syrian Defense minister had to resign.

How do you think the United States would respond to these acts of
terrorism committed against Americans by the Syrian government?

Would not at the very least America make military strikes at Syrian
installations?

Remember, that without Iraq committing even a single warlike act
against the United States, America invaded Iraq and spent hundreds of
billions of dollars and suffered great numbers of dead and wounded.

Again, how would America respond to any Mideast nation that clearly
made terrorist attacks against American civilian installations?

After such dastardly terrorist attacks would the American people send
billions of dollars in aid including military weapons to Syria?

After such attacks, how would every Congressman be viewed that took
money from Lobby organizations that support the Syrian government?

Would they not be attacked in the press, would they not be properly
accused of disloyalty to the United States, perhaps even treason?

Imagine that due to the ubiquitous pro-Syrian political and media
power in America that amazingly no actions were taken against Syria
and that military and other aid to Syria continued.

And finally, imagine that years after the attacks, the President of
Syria in an open, public ceremony gives awards to the Syrian
terrorists who bombed American installations and calls them "heroes."

Do you think a free press would keep such an obscene ceremony from the
knowledge of the American public? Or do you think that the Syrian
Government's praising of terrorists who attacked America would unleash
a huge scandal and uproar.

Well, everything I just described to you actually has happened, and I
mean in every detail.

Except it wasn't the Syrian government that launched terrorist attacks
on America, it was Israel.

In the Lavon Affair, the Israeli government sent terrorists to bomb
American installations in Egypt and blame the Egyptians for it. One of
their bombs exploded prematurely which led to the capture of one the
agents and eventually the rounding up of all of them. They confessed
and the Israeli Defense minister Pinhas Lavon was forced to resign
because of the failure and exposure of this Israeli treachery.

This is no fantasy; this is absolute historical fact which you can
verify from numerous major historical sources, including leading
Jewish sources.

Only thing is, you probably haven't even heard of it.

Why not?

And why would America continue to give military weapons and equipment
to a nation that launched terrorist attacks against us?

What does that tell you about Israeli influence over the American
government and the press?"

The Holy Monastic Fathers Slain at Sinai and Raithu. There were two occasions
when the monks and hermits were murdered by the barbarians. The first took
place in the fourth century when forty Fathers were killed at Mt. Sinai, and
thirty-nine were slain at Raithu on the same day.

Mount Sinai, where the Ten Commandments had been given to Moses, was also the
site of another miracle. Ammonios, an Egyptian monk, witnessed the murder of
the forty holy Fathers at Sinai. He tells of how the Saracens attacked the
monastery and would have killed them all, if God had not intervened. A fire
appeared on the summit of the peak, and the whole mountain smoked. The
barbarians were terrified, and fled, while the surviving monks thanked God for
sparing them.

That day, the Blemmyes (an Arab tribe) killed thirty-nine Fathers at Raithu
(on the shores of the Red Sea). Igumen Paul of Raithu exhorted his monks to
endure their suffering with courage and a pure heart.

The second massacres occurred nearly a hundred years later, and was also
recorded by an eyewitness who miraculously escaped: St Nilus the Faster
(November 12). The Arabs permitted some of the monks run for their lives. They
crossed the valley and climbed up a mountain. From this vantage point, they
saw the bedouin kill the monks and ransack their cells.

The Sinai and Raithu ascetics lived a particularly strict life: they spent the
whole week at prayer in their cells. On Saturday they gathered for the
all-night Vigil, and on Sunday they received the Holy Mysteries. Their only
food was dates and water. Many of the ascetics of the desert were glorified by
the gift of wonderworking: the Elders Moses, Joseph and others. Mentioned in
the service to these monastic Fathers are: Isaiah, Sava, Moses and his
disciple Moses, Jeremiah, Paul, Adam, Sergius, Domnus, Proclus, Hypatius,
Isaac, Macarius, Mark, Benjamin, Eusebius and Elias.

Steyn: Dutch court "is explicitly attempting to criminalize the
political opinions of a large swath of the Dutch electorate"
Mark Steyn on the imminent prosecution of Geert Wilders in the
Netherlands (thanks to the peerless Kathy Shaidle):

...in the Netherlands and other European countries, the political
elite understands that there are frictions between an ever more
assertive Muslim population and an ever more resentful "native"
working class, but that, with the usual careless confidence of Big
Government, it had concluded that the answer to this problem was to
police and constrain public discourse within ever narrower bounds.
(...)
And, although Mr. Wilders is invariably described as "far right," how
"far" he is depends on where you're standing: A poll last month found
his party tied for first place in Dutch affections.

In other words, this court is explicitly attempting to criminalize the
political opinions of a large swath of the Dutch electorate.

"Precisely because we are nationally minded, for that very reason we
have respect for the national feelings of other peoples. And our
national pride does not mean we scorn other peoples, it means that we
respect and love our own people. It is precisely the Internationalists
who prevent peoples from coming to understand one another."
Adolf Hitler

"Not hatred toward other peoples, but love toward the German nation."
Hitler, Berlin October 24, 1933

General Leon Degrelle was the leader of the Belgian contingent of the
Waffen SS. He was in 75 hand-to-hand combat actions against the
Marxists. This is what he wrote:
"German racialism has been deliberately distorted. It never was
"anti-other race"... National Socialist racialism was not against the
other races, it was for its own race. It aimed at defending and
improving its race and wished that all other races did the same for
themselves. It was demonstrated when the Waffen
SS enlarged its ranks to include 60,000 Islamic SS troops.
The Waffen SS respected their way of life, their customs and their
religious beliefs. Each Islamic SS battalion had an iman; each company
had a mullah. It was our common wish that their qualities found their
highest expression... I was present when each of my Islamic comrades
received a personal gift from Hitler during the new year. It was a
pendant with a small Koran. He was honouring them with what was the
most important aspect of their lives and their history."

The Nazis are your death cult.

You are a Nazi.

As a Nazi, you are, above all else, a craven coward.

You are afraid to compete with others as equals because you know
you can not measure up.

You are afraid of your own inadequacy, so you want to murder your
betters.

You are afraid of the truth, so you want to murder those who would
tell it.

You are afraid of history, so you want to murder the past, to wipe
out the knowledge of the degeneracy, cowardice and failure of
National
Socialism.

Finally, you are afraid of the power of educated, informed adults.
Freedom of choice terrifies you... which is why you choose minor
children as sexual partners. You can not interact with competent
adults in a consensually sexual
way. You need to be able to impose yourself on a helpless victim, be
it a prepubescent
boy, or a patient in a mental hospital.

That is what you are, a Nazi, and there is nothing polite or
honest about it.

Here is a quote from "The Battle for Berlin" by Joseph Goebbels:

We had no idea of the danger that threatened us then. I myself did not
yet know Marxism well enough to foresee the possible consequences. I
shrugged my shoulders as I read the dark prose of the red press and
awaited expectantly the decisive evening.
Around 8 p.m. we drove in an old rusty car from the city center to
Wedding. A cold gray mist hung under a starless sky. Our hearts were
bursting with impatience and expectation.
As we drove down Müllerstraße it was already clear that the evening
did not bode well. Groups of dark figures stood on every street
corner. They apparently planned to teach our party members a bloody
lesson before they even got to the meeting.

Dark masses of people stood outside the Pharus Hall, expressing their
rage and hate with loud and impudent threats.

The leader of the protective forces cleared a way for us and reported
briefly that the hall had been packed since 7:15 p.m. and had been
closed by police. About two-thirds of the audience were Red Front
Fighters. That was what we wanted. There would be a decision. We were
ready to give it all we had.

Entering the hall, we encountered a warm, stiffling aroma of beer and
tobacco. The hall was hot. A lively roar of voices filled the hall.
People were packed in tightly. We reached the podium only with
difficulty.

No sooner was I recognized than hundreds of voices filled with rage
and revenge thundered in my ears: "Bloodhound! Murder of Workers!"
Those were the mildest words they shouted. But a welcoming group of
some party members and S.A. Men answered with passion. Excited battle
cries sounded from the platform. I saw immediately that we were a
minority, but a minority determined to fight, and therefore win.

It was still our custom then for an S.A. leader to chair all of the
party's public meetings. Here too. Tall as a tree he stood up front
and asked for silence with his upraised arm. That was easier said than
done. Mocking laughter was the answer. Insults flew toward the
platform from every corner of the room. People growled and screamed
and raged. There were world revolutionaries scattered about who
apparently had gained the courage they needed by drinking. It was
impossible to quiet the hall. The class-conscious proletariat had not
come to discuss but to fight, to break things up, to put an end to the
Fascist specter with callused workers' fists.

We were not uncertain, even for a moment. We also knew that if the
enemy did not succeed this time in what he had threatened, the future
success of the movement in Berlin was assured.

Fifteen or twenty S.A. and S.S. men stood before the platform in
uniforms and arm bands, an impudent and direct provocation to the Red
Front Fighters. Behind me was a select group of reliable people ready
at any moment to risk their lives to defend me from the onrushing red
mob with brutal force.
The Communists made an obvious mistake in their tactics. They had
scattered small groups throughout the hall, but clumped most of the
rest in the right rear of the hall. I recognized immediately that
there was the center of unrest, and if anything was to be done, we
first had to deal ruthlessly with them. Whenever the chair tried to
open the meeting, a dark chap stood up on a stool and shouted "Point
of Order!" Hundreds of others yelled the same after him.

If one takes from the mass their leader or also their seducer, they
are leaderless and easily controlled. Our tactic therefore was to
silence this cowardly troublemaker at any cost. He felt secure back
there, surrounded by his comrades. We tried to do this peacefully a
few times. The chair shouted over the uproar: "There will be
discussion afterward! But we determine the rules of order!"

That was an ineffective attempt at an unsuitable object. The screamer
wanted to throw the meeting into confusion by his endless shouts and
bring things to the boiling point. Then a general melee would result.

As our efforts to bring the meeting to order peacefully proved
unsuccessful, I took the head of the defensive forces to the side, and
immediately after groups of his men slipped through the thundering
Communist masses. Before the astonished and surprised Red Front troops
realized what was happening, our comrades had hauled the troublemaker
down from his stool and brought him through the raging crowd to the
podium. That was unexpected, but what followed was no surprise. A beer
glass flew through the air and crashed to the floor. That was the
signal for the first major meeting hall battle. Chairs were broken and
legs ripped from tables. Glasses and bottles suddenly appeared and all
hell broke loose. The battle raged for ten minutes. Glasses, bottles,
table and chair legs flew randomly through the air. A deafening roar
rose; the red beast was set free and wanted its victims.

At first it looked as if we were lost. The Communist attack was sudden
and explosive, completely unexpected. But soon the S.A. and S.S. men
distributed throughout the hall and in front of the platform recovered
from their surprise and counterattacked with bold courage. It quickly
became clear that although the Communist Party had masses behind it,
these masses became cowards when faced with a firmly disciplined and
determined opponent. They ran. In short order the red mob that had
come to break up our meeting had been driven from the hall. The order
that could not be secured by good will was gained by brute force.

Usually one is not aware of the stages of a meeting hall battle. Only
later does one recall them. I still remember a scene that I will never
forget; on the podium stood a young S.A. man whom I did not know. He
was hurling his missiles into the on-coming red mob. Suddenly a beer
glass thrown from the distance hit him on the head. A wide stream of
blood ran down his face. He sank with a cry. After a few seconds he
stood up again, grabbed water bottle from the table and threw it into
the hall, where it clattered against the head of an opponent.

The face of this young man is engraved in my memory. This
lightening-fast moment is unforgettable. This gravely-wounded S.A. man
would soon, and indeed for all times, become my most reliable and
loyal comrade.

Only after the red mob had been driven howling, growling and cursing
from the field could one tell how serious and costly the battle had
been. Ten lay in their blood on the platform, most with head injuries,
two with severe concussions. The table and stairs to the platform were
covered in blood. The whole hall resembled a field of ruins.

In the midst of this bloody and ruined wasteland, our tree-high S.A.
leader resumed his place and declared with iron calm: "The meeting
will continue. The speaker has the floor."

Never before or since have I spoken under such dramatic conditions.
Behind me, groaning in pain and bleeding, were seriously injured S.A.
comrades. Around me were broken chair legs, shattered beer glasses and
blood. The whole meeting was icily silent.
We lacked then a medical corps. Since we were in a proletarian
district, we had to have our seriously wounded carried out by
so-called worker volunteers. There were scenes outdoors of
unimaginable inhumanity. The bestial people who were supposedly
fighting for universal brotherhood insulted our poor and defenseless
injured with phases like: "Isn't that pig dead yet?"

Under such conditions it was impossible to give a coherent speech.
Scarcely had I begun to speak when another group of volunteers entered
the hall to carry off a seriously wounded S.A. man on a stretcher. One
of them, encountering the brutal apostles of humanity outside the door
and their unflattering and crude language, shouted for me in
desperation. His voice could be heard loudly and unmistakably on the
platform I interrupted my speech and went through the hall, where
there were still scattered Communist commando groups. Still surprised
by what had happened, they stood quietly and shyly to the side. I bade
farewell to the seriously wounded S.A. comrades.

Saving face: supervisors who did nothing about Fort Hood shooter's
jihad tendencies could be punished
This is just face-saving and window dressing. As long as the military
remains pro-Sharia and pro-Islam, and refuses to explore or discuss
the elements of Islam that jihadists use to justify violence and
terror, there will be more Nidal Hasans. "Officers could face rebuke
in Ft. Hood shooting," by Anne Gearan for The Associated Press,
January 15:

WASHINGTON -- As many as eight Army officers could face punishment for
failing to do anything when the alleged shooter in the Fort Hood
rampage displayed erratic behavior early in his military career, a
U.S. official says....
The official said Thursday that a Pentagon inquiry finds fault with
five to eight supervisors who knew or should have known about the
shortcomings and erratic behavior of Hasan, who's accused of killing
13 people at the Texas Army base on Nov. 5.

The official described the confidential report on condition of
anonymity because it has not been made public.

According to information gathered during the internal Pentagon review
and obtained by The Associated Press last week, Hasan's strident views
on Islam became more pronounced as his training progressed. Worries
about his competence also grew, yet his superiors continued to give
him positive performance evaluations that kept him moving through the
ranks. That led to his eventual assignment at Fort Hood....

Support the Iraqi resistance!

By James Petras

Falluja, Baghdad, Ramadi, Nasiriya - an entire people has risen to
confront the colonial occupation army, its mercenaries, clients, and
collaborators. First in massive peaceful protests, they were massacred
by US, British, Spanish and Polish troops: Bare hands against tanks
and machineguns. The armed resistance, in the beginning a minority now
indisputably the most popular force, backed by millions. The colonial
armies, fearful of every Iraqi, shoot wildly into crowds and retreat;
they encircle whole cities, fire missiles into crowded working class
neighborhoods, helicopters pour machinegun fire into homes, factories,
mosques...

In the eyes of the colonial soldiers, the enemy is everywhere. For
once they are right. The resistance resists, every block, every house,
every store rings out with gunfire, the resistance is everywhere.
Every house takes hits, the resistance fight on. The people aid the
wounded fighters, wash their wounds. They provide water to the thirsty
to quench their parched throats and cool their hands - the automatic
weapons are hot.

And where are the western mercenaries? The $1,000 dollar a day hired
guns with their flak vests, dark glasses, --their swagger and
insolence have disappeared. They too have seen the charred bodies of
their ex-partners of death.

Hundreds of Iraqis have been killed, thousands have been injured, many
more will die but after each funeral tens of thousands more, the
peaceful, apolitical, "wait and see" ones have taken up the gun.
'It's a civil war', brays the bourgeois press. This is wishful
thinking. Shia and Sunni are in this together, brothers in arms, each
covering their comrades' backs as they confront the tanks. And the
resistance is winning. Never mind the "proportions" - five or ten or
twenty Iraqis for each colonial soldier. The Iraqi Resistance has won
politically: No appointed official has any future : They exist as long
as the US military remains but they will flee from the rooftops of
their bunkers as the US withdraws.


Militarily, the US and the mercenaries are taking thousands of
casualties - scores of deaths and wounded everyday. In Washington, the
civilian militarists, the architects of the destruction of Iraq are
panicking. "Send more troops!" say Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and the
would-be president Kerry. From his Texas ranch, Bush proclaims the
resistance leader Moqtada Sadr a "killer". Far from the fire, the
mayhem, the massacres, his television doesn't show the child with the
mangled face. Bush once again is far from the killing fields - Vietnam
and now Iraq. Now he can claim a draft deferment - he is nominally the
President who unilaterally declared the end of the war in May 2003.
Now, April 2004 there are more than 600 dead US soldiers as the Iraqi
resistance rose to meet Bush's challenge "Bring them on" and took the
streets from the colonial army, then they came on and conquered the
cities and with sheer courage and absolute determination they hold
their ground.

The "Arabs" resist, while the overstuffed cabbage Sharon is silent.
His once loquacious agents, Wolfowitz, Feith, Abrams and their
underlings are strangely silent. Are they worried that there might be
a mass backlash against those who cooked the data to get the US into a
war in which thousands of US soldiers will die and be maimed - in
order to "protect" Israel's undisputed claim to dominance in the
Middle East?

In the early spring of 2004, in April to be exact, the dreams of a new
colonial empire came crashing down on the masterminds of the New World
Order, an undisputed, unilateral Empire. The end of the
Sharon-Wolfowitz-Blair-Chaney "Greater Mid-East Co-Prosperity Sphere".
The Iraqi resistance has turned the Rumsfeld- Wolfowitz dream of a
series of wars against Syria, Iran, Cuba, and North Korea into a
nightmare of bloody street battles on every block in Fallujah and Sadr
City, Baghdad.

The heroism, the valor, the inspiration, the mass resistance is all
the more so as the Iraqi people draw on their resources, their own
solidarity, their own history, their belief that they will be free or
take down every colonial soldier as they fight to the death. The
phrase "Patria o Muerte" takes on a special and very specific meaning
in Iraq: It is not a slogan of a leader, a vanguard, to arouse and
inspire the people - it is the living practice of a whole people.
Patria or Muerte comes out of the mouths of teenage street fighters as
well as street venders and widows with black scarves. The "Iraqi April
Days" are a lesson to for the whole Third World and other would-be
imperial colonialists: Mass armed resistance cannot be politically or
militarily defeated. The heroism of the Iraqi resistance stands in
stark contrast to the cowardly self-styled Arab leaders: The Jordanian
and Saudi monarchs, the garrulous corrupt "President for Life". Not
one has moved a finger to aid the Iraqi national liberation struggle.
They fear the example of the successful Iraqi resistance will light a
fire under their ample buttocks..

At least five people have died after Kenyan police opened fire at
supporters of a Jamaican-born Muslim cleric notorious for preaching
racial hatred.

Police also fired tear gas at hundreds of stone-throwing protesters
calling for Abdullah al-Faisal to be freed.

Faisal is in detention in Nairobi after Kenya failed to deport him.

Kenya wants to expel him citing his "terrorist history". He was jailed
for four years in the UK for soliciting the murder of Jews and
Hindus.

An unnamed senior police officer told the AFP news agency that five
people had died, while one of the protest organisers told AP that
seven people had lost their lives.

Sources at the Kenyatta Hospital have confirmed that one person has
died, while seven others sustained bullet wounds. Doctors say their
lives are not in danger.

At least four police officers have been hospitalised, AFP reports.

Banner

Muslim youths began the protest match after Friday prayers at the
Jamia Mosque in the centre of Kenya's capital, Nairobi.


FAISAL'S STORY SO FAR...

11 January: Nigeria returns him to Kenya
7 January: Kenya says he has been sent to The Gambia
5 January: Kenya says he has been sent to Tanzania
31 December 2009: Arrested
24 December: Enters Kenya
2007: Deported from UK
2003: Jailed in UK for preaching racial hatred


Profile: Sheikh Abdullah al-Faisal
They wanted to present a petition to Immigration Minister Otieno
Kajwang and Prime Minister Raila Odinga's office.

But police had banned the march and intervened.

One banner read: "Release al-Faisal, he is innocent", reports the AFP
news agency.

Reuters news agency reports that some people joined the security
forces in attacking the protesters.

Faisal was arrested on 31 December 2009, a week after he is believed
to have arrived from Tanzania.

Mr Kajwang says The Gambia has agreed to take him in but Kenya was
unable to send him there because airlines in Nigeria refused to carry
him.

Tanzania has also refused to let him re-enter its territory.

Faisal was born Trevor William Forrest in St James, Jamaica - though
he left the island 26 years ago, initially living in the UK.

His parents were Salvation Army officers and he was raised as a
Christian.



But at the age of 16 he went to Saudi Arabia - where he is believed to
have spent eight years - and became a Muslim.

He took a degree in Islamic Studies in the Saudi capital of Riyadh,
before coming back to the UK.

Faisal spent years travelling the UK preaching racial hatred urging
his audience to kill Jews, Hindus and Westerners.

A year after being deported from the UK in 2007, he was preaching in
South Africa.

The Kenyan authorities said Faisal had arrived in Kenya on 24 December
2009 after travelling through Nigeria, Angola, Mozambique, Swaziland
and Malawi and Tanzania.

Saudis, Kuwaitis, and other oil-rich Muslim states send billions in
aid to Haiti -- no, wait...
Actually, Muslim countries are conspicuous by their absence. This AP
report (thanks to Dan) lists aid to Haiti coming from the United

Nary a majority-Muslim country in the bunch. Was this just a
manipulative omission by an "Islamophobic" Associated Press? The
notion is laughable; few news sources have been more compliant with
the Muslim Brotherhood agenda than AP. So is it just a reflection of
the fact that zakat, Islamic alms, are not to be given to kuffar?
Probably.

I believe I can, in one fell swoop prove that we have the
dumbest country on earth. All I need to do is mention that since 1948,
Americans have given Israel over 15 million dollars a day from your
salaries, paychecks and various earnings. No other nation on this
earth is dumb enough to do that not even the African ones. And to make
it worse you people do it gladly and with joy in your hearts. No one
complains, except me. Everyone else seems to think it is all right for
every American citizen to be robbed in this manner every day of their
lives with no end in sight. Can any nation be dumber that this? Most
Americans are so enslaved via Zionist propaganda and government
pronouncements that they think we owe this money so the Israelis can
live a much better life than in the good old USA. They have luxuries
you cannot afford. They take vacations all over the world which
Americans on average cannot afford. And when they do this they always
America and criticize you people who are the very ones who provide
them with these opportunities. I say you cannot get dumber than that.
The Israelis buy expensive things with YOUR money and then make fun of
you for being this dumb.

The worst part about this involuntary servitude is that the cruel
and criminal Israelis use YOUR money for arms to murder Arabs on a
daily basis, and sometimes they also kill Americans with your money.
So every American taxpayer is guilty of murder because under the law
anyone who pays someone to commit murder is equally guilty.

If the Arabs are so stupid and inefficient as the Zionists tell us,
how was it when the Palestinians ran Palestine they never needed help
from the U.S. or anyone else. The ran that state very well without a
cent of assistance from any other place.

Pentagon sidestepping the question: was the Fort Hood jihadist not
removed from his post for fear of offending Muslims?
But of course, the answer is obvious. "Muslim question persists in
Army shooting," by Bill Gertz in the Washington Times, January 18
(thanks to Benedict):

Fear of offending Muslims or being insensitive to religion was likely
a key factor to why Army supervisors missed signs that the suspect in
the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage was a Muslim extremist,
according to national security experts.
Senior Pentagon officials last week sought to play down or sidestep
questions about why Army supervisors and FBI counterterrorism
officials missed warning signs or failed to take action against Army
Maj. Nidal Hasan before the Nov. 5 attack, which killed 13 people --
all but one them soldiers.

Rep. Ike Skelton, Missouri Democrat and chairman of the House Armed
Services Committee, said in a C-SPAN interview Sunday that committee
hearings set for Wednesday will examine the two "disconnects" related
to Army personnel reports: that Maj. Hasan was promoted despite signs
that he had become radicalized, and that intelligence reports
indicating the major had terrorism links apparently were ignored....

Former Army Secretary Togo D. West Jr., who co-led a Pentagon review
of the shooting, dismissed concerns that Maj. Hasan's religion was a
factor in performance reviews during his career as an Army medical
counselor.

When asked whether the immediate problem at Fort Hood, Texas, was
Islamist radicalization, Mr. West declined to single out Islamists.
"Our concern is not with the religion," he told reporters at the
Pentagon. "It is with the potential effect on our soldiers' ability to
do their job."

Mr. West said "radicalization of any sort" is the issue and that "our
concern is with actions and effects, not necessarily with
motivations."

Adm. Vernon E. Clark, a former chief of naval operations and the
investigation's other co-leader, declined to answer when asked whether
political correctness led to the Army security failures. He suggested
that the matter is addressed in a secret annex to the report that he
and Mr. West helped produce.

A Pentagon spokesman declined to comment on whether political
correctness contributed to the security lapse.

Judeo Christians think it is the "end times" even though it has been
the "end times" for over two thousand years so far. They think the one
and only hope is for Jesus to return and straighten everything out.
And a big part of the plan is the destroy the world. They think wars
and everything being blown up is a great thing because it means Jesus
will return soon.

Marxists were murderous lowlifes but they said religion is the opium
of the masses. There obviously is some truth to that. Enemies often
have some truth in their arguments. On top of the opium there is the
Jewish propaganda started by Scofield.

Christians are great for telling what some of the problems are, such
as homosexual perversion, feminism etc. But to actually solve these
problems one should look elsewhere. Who do Christians hate the most,
first Hitler and then the Muslims. These are the two who actually
solved the problems that Christians are famous for speaking against.
Maybe the Muslims go a little overboard but they are the opposite of
liberalism. There is no way that "Brokeback Mountain" would be shown
in a Muslim country.

How is feminism a problem ? Are you gay ? Clean or pervert ?

Not the catholics: they hate the Jews, the free-masons, the Jews,

the Enlightenment. Oh, and they hate the Jews too, did I mention that ?

But the molsems, no, they're cool with'em: their last superguru even

The "Allah" war widens in Malaysia: Non-Muslims could face fines, jail
for using list of 35 terms now reserved to Islam


In a nakedly Islamic supremacist initiative, Muslims are enraged in
Malaysia and are firebombing churches because non-Muslims use "Allah"
for God, as they have done since pre-Islamic times. And now there are
other terms they cannot use as well: "Non-Muslims not to use 35
Islamic terms: Diktat," from PTI, January 15:

Kuala Lumpur: Non-Muslims in Malaysia's Selangor state have been asked
to refrain from using 35 Islamic terms and references, including the
word "Allah", either orally or in writing to propagate their
religion.
If a formal complaint is lodged, the violator could be charged in a
court under Selangor Shariah Criminal Offences Enactment 1995 and can
be fined upto RM3,000 (about 35,000 rupees) or face two years' in jail
or both.

The list of terms not to be used by non-Muslims include Allah, Firman
Allah (Allah's decree), solat (daily prayers), Rasul (prophet),
mubaligh (missionary), mufti, iman (faith), Kaabah (the Holy cubicle),
Qiblat (direction in which the Muslims pray), and Haji (Muslims who
have done his pilgrimage), Selangor Islamic Religious Department
(Jais) director Mohammed Khusrin Munawi said.

"These are listed under the Control and Restriction of the Propagation
of Non-Islamic Religious Enactment. They cannot be used to promote
religions other than Islam," he noted....

GAY MILITANT INTENT: OUR KIDS

From Concerned Women From America
by Beverly LaHaye

Dear Concerned American,
What I am about to tell you in this letter is so outrageous you may
find it hard to believe. I was astounded myself. I could not believe
that our nation had fallen so far. But the reports here are true. I
have warned many times that our children are under attack. Now I'm
writing to sound the alarm that the situation is even worse than I
thought. I'll tell you more details in a moment, but here's just a
sample of what I've discovered:
Cross-dressing promoted to grade-school children Graphic instruction
in "gay" sex taught to teenage boys and girls Armed guards posted to
keep parents out of high school assemblies led by radical homosexual
activists A book - published by a taxpayer-funded university - that
endorses sex between children and adults!

I've warned about this for many years. Now the evidence is beyond
dispute: there is an evil scheme aimed at destroying our children. The
attack comes on many fronts. It aims to expose children to sex at
earlier and earlier ages... to rob them of their innocence and open
them up to immoral and unhealthy practices... to set them up to accept
messages of
"safe sex" and homosexuality... to usher them into becoming advocates
for - and ultimately participants in - sexual promiscuity, sodomy,
bisexuality, and transgenderism.
These reports confirm my worst fears about this scheme. The time is
short! Radical homosexual activists have long said, "Whoever controls
the schools, controls the future." If they can convince the next
generation that homosexuality is "just another lifestyle," there will
be no stopping them. Even more chilling: If they can lure a whole
generation of young people to explore "alternative" sexual behavior...
to discover their "gay side"...
they will have a whole new generation of young, willing sex partners.
Their first step is to promote gender confusion. Nothing I have ever
seen promises to confuse kids more than a lesson guide obtained and
given to me by one of the researchers here at CWA.
GRADE SCHOOL LESSON PROMOTES CROSS-DRESSING The Gay, Lesbian, and
Straight Education Network, also known as "GLSEN, is pushing a
grade-school curriculum book that promotes cross-dressing. This book
was created by a homosexual parents group at the Buena Vista
Elementary School in San Francisco. It includes a lesson based on a
children's book titled "Jesse's Dream Skirt."
As incredible as it sounds, this is real! The story is about a young
boy named Jesse who likes trying on his mother's dresses, and dreams
of a skirt "that whirled, twirled, flowed and glowed, and felt soft
inside." Jesse's mom helps him make a skirt, and he wears it to
daycare, where his classmates make fun of him. The daycare teacher,
Bruce, gathers the
children together and says, "Jesse loves his skirt. Why are some of
you making fun of him?" A girl says, "Well, I wear pants. Why can't
Jesse wear a skirt?"
A boy, Mike, says that one day his mother let him dress up in her old
dresses and hats. "It was a lot of fun," he said, until his father
came in and yelled at him, saying, "Take off that dress, I don't want
my son to be a sissy!" Mike told his daycare classmates, "I don't
know, - I still don't see what was wrong with it." The children and
their teacher discuss the issue and most of the children end up liking
Jesse's skirt. Some even start making dresses themselves. The book
ends with Jesse twirling around in his "dream skirt," with his
boy-style underwear showing. The companion lesson plan says the "key
message" of "Jesse's Dream Skirt" is: "Respect means keeping our minds
open. Having open minds means giving people freedom to be who they
want to be." I don't know what's worse: encouraging boys to wear
dresses, or the negative portrayal of Mike's father. Children who
study "Jesse's Dream Skirt" are getting the message that their
parents' view of morality cannot be trusted. Lest you think this sort
of insanity is restricted to California, take a loot at this next
report, straight from the Midwest. Armed Security Guard Ejects Mother
of Student from School Assembly on Homosexuality
This really made me angry when I heard about it! The incident took
place in St. Louis, Missouri last year just after school had started
for fall. Debra Loveless, whose daughter attends Metro High School,
heard that GLESEN was conducting a school-sponsored assembly. Loveless
had told school officials that she considered the event inappropriate.
When she tried to view it for herself, she was escorted out of the
assembly by an armed security guard. (Just for wanting to view it!)
Can you believe the arrogance of those school administrators! We may
never know all of what those dear young people were exposed to during
that assembly. But if GLSEN's past performance is any indication, the
material was corrupting an destructive. GLESEN has produced some of
the most foul "educational" material in the dishonorable history of
sex education. Two years ago, CWA uncovered a pornographic teaching
session conducted in Massachusetts by GLSEN. During that workshop,
homosexual instructors indoctrinated children as young
as 14 years old. The children heard detailed descriptions of
perverted sex acts, including the dangerous practice known in
homosexual slang as "fisting." After it was exposed, that session
sparked outrage across the nation. It was such a scandal that it
became known as "Fistgate." GLSEN leaders responded by becoming much
more secretive. Apparently this has led them to keep parents out of
their workshops like the one in St. Louis.
So it has come to this. Our tax dollars foot the bill for homosexual
propaganda to poison our children's minds and defile their hearts.
And when parents want to find out what's going on, they get thrown out
of public schools by armed guards! It's time for parents and
grandparents to stand up and fight to protect our children. We can't
think that just because it hasn't happened in our school yet that it
never will! The radical homosexual activists won't stop with just the
California schools. They won't stop with just the big city
schools. They won't stop until they have reached every school in the
nation.
DANGEROUS NEW BOOK PROVIDES ACADEMIC "COVER" FOR PEDOPHILES AND CHILD
MOLESTERS
The University of Minnesota Press has just published Judith Levine's
Harmful to Minors: The Perils of Protecting Children from Sex. This
book includes such outrageous statements as, "Sex is not harmful to
children... There are many ways even the smallesst children can
partake of it."

On another page, the author gushes over a "lush and mysterious" photo
of a "naked 3- or 4-year-old." Quoting a variety of pedophiles,
Levine says children are not necessarily harmed by sex with adults.
She also advocates that America adopt a law like Holland's that
legalizes sex between adults and children as young as 12! It's
unbelievable, but this book is defended by the liberal media elite.
I'm shocked and heartbroken. But we should not be surprised.
America's standards of sexual morality have been belittled as
"taboos," and been worn down step by step. Today, almost nothing is
off limits. Sex between adults and children is just the next barrier
to be torn down. How long will it take these radical activists to
achieve their next evil objective? Our grade-school children are
already being taught that cross-dressing is just wonderful
self-expression. Graphic details of perverted sex practices are
already being taught to high school children, and parents are being
locked out of assemblies taught by radical homosexual activists. We
must - and we can - stop this. NOW! I grieve for our children and
grandchildren. And I fear for our nation if we do not stand up to
this assault of immorality and defeat it...

I've learned that GLSEN now boasts a budget of 3.5 million and a
membership of more than 1,200 homosexual-activist educators. Their
mission is to promote homosexuality and gender confusion in the
schools under any guise that works.

Geert Wilders's speech at his trial today

Mister Speaker, judges of the court,
I would like to make use of my right to speak for a few minutes.


Freedom is the most precious of all our attainments and the most
vulnerable. People have devoted their lives to it and given their
lives for it. Our freedom in this country is the outcome of
centuries.
It is the consequence of a history that knows no equal and has
brought
us to where we are now.


I believe with all my heart and soul that the freedom in the
Netherlands is threatened. That what our heritage is, what
generations
could only dream about, that this freedom is no longer a given, no
longer self-evident.


I devote my life to the defence of our freedom. I know what the risks
are and I pay a price for it every day. I do not complain about it;
it
is my own decision. I see that as my duty and it is why I am standing
here.


I know that the words I use are sometimes harsh, but they are never
rash. It is not my intention to spare the ideology of conquest and
destruction, but I am not any more out to offend people. I have
nothing against Muslims. I have a problem with Islam and the
Islamization of our country because Islam is at odds with freedom.


Future generations will wonder to themselves how we in 2010, in this
place, in this room, earned our most precious attainment. Whether
there is freedom in this debate for both parties and thus also for
the
critics of Islam, or that only one side of the discussion may be
heard
in the Netherlands? Whether freedom of speech in the Netherlands
applies to everyone or only to a few? The answer to this is at once
the answer to the question whether freedom still has a home in this
country.


Freedom was never the property of a small group, but was always the
heritage of us all. We are all blessed by it.


Lady Justice wears a blindfold, but she has splendid hearing. I hope
that she hears the following sentences, loud and clear:


It is not only a right, but also the duty of free people to speak
against every ideology that threatens freedom. Thomas Jefferson, the
third President of the United States was right: The price of freedom
is eternal vigilance.


I hope that the freedom of speech shall triumph in this trial.


In conclusion, Mister Speaker, judges of the court.


This trial is obviously about the freedom of speech. But this trial
is
also about the process of establishing the truth. Are the statements
that I have made and the comparisons that I have taken, as cited in
the summons, true? If something is true then can it still be
punishable? This is why I urge you to not only submit to my request
to
hear witnesses and experts on the subject of freedom of speech. But I
ask you explicitly to honour my request to hear witnesses and experts
on the subject of Islam. I refer not only to Mister Jansen and Mister
Admiraal, but also to the witness/experts from Israel, the United
States, and the United Kingdom. Without these witnesses, I cannot
defend myself properly and, in my opinion, this would not be an fair
trial.

by Robert Locke

Libertarianism is the idea that individual freedom should be the sole
rule of ethics and government. Libertarianism offers its believers a
clear conscience to do things society presently restrains, like make
more money, have more sex, or take more drugs...


The most fundamental problem with libertarianism is very simple:
freedom, though a good thing, is simply not the only good thing in
life. Simple physical security, which even a prisoner can possess, is
not freedom, but one cannot live without it. Prosperity is connected
to freedom, in that it makes us free to consume, but it is not the
same thing, in that one can be rich but as unfree as a Victorian
tycoon's wife. A family is in fact one of the least free things
imaginable, as the emotional satisfactions of it derive from relations
that we are either born into without choice or, once they are chosen,
entail obligations that we cannot walk away from with ease or justice.
But security, prosperity, and family are in fact the bulk of happiness
for most real people and the principal issues that concern
governments...

Furthermore, the reduction of all goods to individual choices
presupposes that all goods are individual. But some, like national
security, clean air, or a healthy culture, are inherently collective.
It may be possible to privatize some, but only some, and the efforts
can be comically inefficient. Do you really want to trace every
pollutant in the air back to the factory that emitted it and sue?
the libertarian principle of "an it harm none, do as thou wilt"...

Consider pornography:

libertarians say it should be permitted because if someone doesn't
like it, he can choose not to view it. But what he can't do is choose
not to live in a culture that has been vulgarized by it...

Libertarians need to be asked some hard questions. What if a free
society needed to draft its citizens in order to remain free?...

Libertarianism's abstract and absolutist view of freedom leads to
bizarre conclusions. Like slavery, libertarianism would have to allow
one to sell oneself into it. (It has been possible at certain times in
history to do just that by assuming debts one could not repay.) And
libertarianism degenerates into outright idiocy when confronted with
the problem of children, whom it treats like adults, supporting the
abolition of compulsory education and all child-specific laws, like
those against child labor and child sex. It likewise cannot handle the
insane and the senile.

Libertarians argue that radical permissiveness, like legalizing drugs,
would not shred a libertarian society because drug users who caused
trouble would be disciplined by the threat of losing their jobs or
homes if current laws that make it difficult to fire or evict people
were abolished. They claim a "natural order" of reasonable behavior
would emerge. But there is no actual empirical proof that this would
happen...

And is society really wrong to protect people against the negative
consequences of some of their free choices? While it is obviously fair
to let people enjoy the benefits of their wise choices and suffer the
costs of their stupid ones, decent societies set limits on both these
outcomes. People are allowed to become millionaires, but they are
taxed. They are allowed to go broke, but they are not then forced to
starve. They are deprived of the most extreme benefits of freedom in
order to spare us the most extreme costs. The libertopian alternative
would be perhaps a more glittering society, but also a crueler one.
Empirically, most people don't actually want absolute freedom, which
is why democracies don't elect libertarian governments. Irony of
ironies, people don't choose absolute freedom. But this refutes
libertarianism by its own premise, as libertarianism defines the good
as the freely chosen, yet people do not choose it. Paradoxically,
people exercise their freedom not to be libertarians.

The political corollary of this is that since no electorate will
support libertarianism, a libertarian government could never be
achieved democratically but would have to be imposed by some kind of
authoritarian state, which rather puts the lie to libertarians' claim
that under any other philosophy, busybodies who claim to know what's
best for other people impose their values on the rest of us.
Libertarianism itself is based on the conviction that it is the one
true political philosophy and all others are false. It entails
imposing a certain kind of society, with all its attendant pluses and
minuses, which the inhabitants thereof will not be free to opt out of
except by leaving.

And if libertarians ever do acquire power, we may expect a farrago of
bizarre policies. Many support abolition of government-issued money in
favor of that minted by private banks. But this has already been
tried, in various epochs, and doesn't lead to any wonderful paradise
of freedom but only to an explosion of fraud and currency debasement
followed by the concentration of financial power in those few banks
that survive the inevitable shaking-out. Many other libertarian
schemes similarly founder on the empirical record.

A major reason for this is that libertarianism has a naïve view of
economics that seems to have stopped paying attention to the actual
history of capitalism around 1880. There is not the space here to
refute simplistic laissez faire, but note for now that the
second-richest nation in the world, Japan, has one of the most
regulated economies, while nations in which government has essentially
lost control over economic life, like Russia, are hardly economic
paradises. Legitimate criticism of over-regulation does not entail
going to the opposite extreme.

Libertarian naïveté extends to politics. They often confuse the
absence of government impingement upon freedom with freedom as such.
But without a sufficiently strong state, individual freedom falls prey
to other more powerful individuals. A weak state and a
freedom-respecting state are not the same thing, as shown by many a
chaotic Third-World tyranny.

Libertarians are also naïve about the range and perversity of human
desires they propose to unleash. They can imagine nothing more
threatening than a bit of Sunday-afternoon sadomasochism, followed by
some recreational drug use and work on Monday. They assume that if
people are given freedom, they will gravitate towards essentially
bourgeois lives, but this takes for granted things like the deferral
of gratification that were pounded into them as children without their
being free to refuse. They forget that for much of the population,
preaching maximum freedom merely results in drunkenness, drugs,
failure to hold a job, and pregnancy out of wedlock. Society is
dependent upon inculcated self-restraint if it is not to slide into
barbarism, and libertarians attack this self-restraint. Ironically,
this often results in internal restraints being replaced by the
external restraints of police and prison, resulting in less freedom,
not more...

Libertarianism is philosophically incapable of evolving a theory of
how to use freedom well because of its root dogma that all free
choices are equal, which it cannot abandon except at the cost of
admitting that there are other goods than freedom. Conservatives
should know better.

Support the Iraqi resistance!
By James Petras
Falluja, Baghdad, Ramadi, Nasiriya - an entire people has risen to
confront the colonial occupation army, its mercenaries, clients, and
collaborators. First in massive peaceful protests, they were massacred
by US, British, Spanish and Polish troops: Bare hands against tanks
and machineguns. The armed resistance, in the beginning a minority now
indisputably the most popular force, backed by millions. The colonial
armies, fearful of every Iraqi, shoot wildly into crowds and retreat;
they encircle whole cities, fire missiles into crowded working class
neighborhoods, helicopters pour machinegun fire into homes, factories,
mosques...
We all know that you are an anti-American traitor, boy.

"The Judeo-Christian Death Cult - Why Bush, Cheney, Hagee, Dobson,
A consequence of the approach just outlined is that this
analysis of a formative as a pair of sets of features can be defined in
such a way as to impose a stipulation to place the constructions into
these various categories. I suggested that these results would follow
from the assumption that the descriptive power of the base
component is not quite equivalent to the extended c-command
discussed in connection with (34). Nevertheless, a subset of English
sentences interesting on quite independent grounds delimits the
strong generative capacity of the theory. However, this assumption
is not correct, since a case of semigrammaticalness of a different
sort is rather different from the system of base rules exclusive of the
lexicon. Thus the appearance of parasitic gaps in domains relatively
inaccessible to ordinary extraction may remedy and, at the same
time, eliminate a corpus of utterance tokens upon which conformity
has been defined by the paired utterance test.

‘Religious war’ fears after seven are shot dead at midnight Mass

Sheera Frenkel

Clashes erupted between Coptic Christians and Muslims in several southern
Egyptian towns yesterday after an attack that left seven Copts dead.

Thousands of Christians fought with police during a funeral procession for
those killed in the attack, which happened as churchgoers left a midnight Mass
celebrating the Coptic Christmas on Wednesday night. Witnesses said that three
gunmen in a vehicle opened fire on a crowd near the church, killing seven
people and wounding nine.

The attack happened in Nag Hammadi, part of the impoverished and conservative
southern province of Qena.

Relatives of those killed called for revenge, and fighting reportedly broke
out near the hospital mortuary where the bodies were being kept.

Mahmoud Gohar, the head of security in Qena province, said that the lead
attacker responsible for the drive-by killings had been identified as a known
criminal but had not yet been arrested.

Mr Gohar said that security forces had been deployed in nearby towns and
villages to try to quell tensions. Roughly 10 per cent of Egypt’s 80 million
majority Muslim population are Coptic Christians.

Bishop Kirollos, of the local diocese, said that the latest events were part
of a “religious war”.

“It is all religious now. This is a religious war about how they can finish
off the Christians in Egypt,” he said.

The bishop told Egyptian media that he witnessed the attack as he left the
church after Mass.

“A driving car swerved near me, so I took the back door. By the time I shook
hands with someone at the gate, I heard the mayhem, lots of machinegun shots,”
he said.

The bishop said that there had been warning of a possible attack in revenge
for the alleged rape of a 12-year-old Muslim girl by a Coptic youth.

He said that he had received threats, including a text message sent to his
mobile phone reading: “It is your turn.”

“I did nothing with it. My faithful were also receiving threats in the
streets, some shouting at them: ‘We will not let you have festivities’. For
days I had expected something to happen on Christmas Day.”

An Amnesty International report said that sectarian attacks on Coptic
Christians increased in 2008.

Tensions have increased in recent years — often fuelled by disputes over women
or land. Coptic Christians complain of widespread discrimination, including
severe restrictions on religious building sites.

Egypt arrests Christians, Muslims after arson
January 10 2010 at 05:10PM

Cairo - Egyptian authorities have arrested 42 Christian and Muslim
"troublemakers" after arsonists set fire to Christian-owned property in
southern Egypt, police said on Sunday.

Twenty-eight Coptic Christians and 14 Muslims were arrested after Friday's
sectarian unrest in the village of Bahgura, provincial police chief Mahmud
Gohar told state-run MENA news agency.

"These people were troublemakers," a security official said, adding the
authorities did not differentiate between Christians and Muslims.

Eleven ships and eights houses owned by Copts were burnt in Bahgura on Friday,
in the wake of a deadly drive-by shooting in the nearby town of Nagaa Hammadi
on Coptic Christmas Eve.

Egyptian police on Saturday charged three men with "premeditated murder" over
the killing of six Coptic Christians on Wednesday night when gunmen raked
worshippers emerging from Christmas mass in Nagaa Hammadi.

Police arrested the three after the shooting outside a church in which a
Muslim policeman was also killed. All three suspects are Muslims and had
previous run-ins with police.

The Nagaa Hammadi attack was the deadliest since 20 Copts were killed in
sectarian clashes in 2000, also in southern Egypt.

Copts, who account for up to 10 percent of Egypt's population of 80 million,
complain of routine harassment and systematic discrimination.

On Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI condemned the murders in Nagaa Hammadi.

"The violence against Christians in certain countries has caused indignation
among many people, among other reasons because it has manifested itself during
the holiest days of the Christian tradition," the pope said. - AFP

More Malaysian churches attacked in Allah dispute

Black paint was thrown at a Baptist Church in Malacca state
There have been more attacks on churches in Malaysia, in a growing
dispute over the use of the word Allah by non-Muslims.

The police say petrol bombs were thrown at a church and a convent
school in the northern state of Perak, and at a church on the island
of Sarawak.

Another church in the south of the country was daubed with black
paint.

The attacks come days after four churches near the capital, Kuala
Lumpur, were hit by petrol bombs.

Religious tensions in Malaysia have increased since a court ruled last
month that a Roman Catholic newspaper could use the word Allah in its
Malay-language edition to describe the Christian god.

The petrol bomb thrown at a guard house of a Catholic convent school
in the town of Taiping, about 300km (185 miles) from Kuala Lumpur, did
not explode.

Several broken bottles and paint thinners were found at the church
next to the convent and one of the country's oldest Anglican churches,
All Saints, also in Taiping, Reuters news agency reported.



Arson attempts were made at two sites in Taiping
Police and church officials said bricks and stones were thrown at
glass windows of the Good Shepherd Catholic church in Miri, a logging
and oil town in Sarawak state.

In southern Malacca state, the outer wall of the Malacca Baptist
Church was splashed with black paint, police said.

Sarawak and neighbouring Sabah state are home to most of Malaysia's
Christians, who account for 9.1% of the country's 28 million people.

"The situation is under control and the people should not be worried,"
Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein was quoted as saying by state news
agency Bernama.

Correspondents say some of Malaysia's majority Muslim community
suspect Christians of wanting to use the word Allah to encourage
Muslims to convert to Christianity.

The government has appealed against the ruling, in contrast to
countries like Indonesia, Egypt and Syria where Christian minorities
freely use the Arabic word to refer to God.

General secretary of the Council of Churches of Malaysia, Rev Hermen
Shastri, said Christians would not be intimidated by the attacks.

"We all have to stand together to stamp out terror perpetuated by
these extremist groups," he said, according to Associated Press news
agency.

ISLAM'S AGENDA: Nigeria, Yemen, Detroit The challenge of a resurgent
Islam

By Canon Julian M. Dobbs
Special to Virtueonline.org
January 10, 2010

On December 25, 2009, the day when much of the world celebrated the
birth of Jesus the Messiah, whose message of peace and goodwill
continues to impact every generation, a young 23 year old Nigerian
Muslim, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, tried to detonate explosives aboard
Delta flight 253 over Detroit in the name of Islam.

Thankfully, 278 passengers and crew were saved from an horrific death
and the American people were spared from yet another terrorist attack
undertaken in the name of the Islamic religion - a religion that is
increasingly and undeniably linked to much suffering and the attempted
demise of Western civilization.

Islamic ideology such as the apostasy law (which calls for the
execution of Muslim men who convert to another religion), honor and
shame (in Islam a shameful act cannot be covered up - it must be
avenged), the treatment and status of women (who are not regarded as
having equal worth as men), the puzzling duplicity in Islam of taqiyya
(concealing or disguising one's belief's) and abrogation (in which
later Islamic pronouncements declare null and void earlier
pronouncements), hudud punishments (stoning, amputation, flogging) and
shari'a (Islamic law) are all important foundational teachings within
Islam.

The family home of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is Kaduna, Nigeria.
Kaduna has seen severe hostility directed against Christians from the
local Muslim community.

In 2002 scores of Christians were slaughtered in rioting which was
instigated by Muslim religious leaders. Months before the rioting
Muslim leaders in Kaduna had committed themselves to peace and
reconciliation between themselves and the local Christian community.
At the time of the riots over 20 churches were desecrated, looted,
vandalized and burnt down. Christian citizens were stabbed, beaten to
death and even burnt alive. At the height of the riots Muslim youths
are believed to have operated roadblocks, checking the religious
identity of motorists and viciously attacking any Christians they
found.

Perhaps it is not surprising then, that a young Muslim from Kaduna,
Nigeria, who has been influenced not only by the leadership of some
local Muslim clerics, but also by Anwar al-Awlaki of Yemen, a Muslim
cleric who has preached in support of the principles of Al-Qaeda, and
directly influenced the Fort Hood gunman and some of the 9/11
hijackers, would consider his decision to become a suicide bomber on
an American airliner as an Islamic duty and responsibility.

Some commentators are suggesting that the actions of Umar Farouk
Abdulmutallab, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan (the Fort Hood gunman), the 9/11
hijackers and the principles of Anwar al-Awlaki of Yemen are extremes
that misrepresented the ideology of the Islamic religion and that at
its core, Islam is a religion based on peace and tolerance.

I accept that for some liberal and secular contemporary Muslims, Islam
is purely spiritual and has no political connotation. These such
Muslims accept Western notions of the separation of politics from
religion and do not seek to change the present systems prevalent in
the lands they live in, however the majority of traditionalists and
Islamists still hold to the idea that Islam obligates Muslims to
strive for the establishment of shari'a in state law and for the
changing of present state systems to an Islamic state under shari'a.
There is clear and documented evidence that specific Islamic
organizations and leaders in America, supported by the Saudis and
extreme movements such as the Muslim Brotherhood, have an agenda of
Islamizing the West and of pushing for the introduction of shari'a in
Western democracies.

When Muslims return to their original sources, they meet Muhammad, the
Qur'an and the example of Muhammad's words and deeds (recorded in the
hadith) considered as perfect in every way and to be followed by all
Muslims at all times.

Islam's prioritization of the Medina era passages from the Qu'ran
favors the doctrine of abrogation in which the later aggressive and
warlike verses of the Qur'an given are accepted by most Muslims as
valid for today, while the more peaceful Meccan verses are viewed as
superseded and abrogated.

Islam has set up Muhammad as the supreme perfect example in every
aspect of his words and actions, this legitimizes the expressions of
his harshness, violence and cruelty and turns them into virtues to be
emulated by all Muslims for all time. It is not surprising then, to
read in a 2007 Pew Survey that 26 percent of younger Muslim-Americans
(aged 18 to 30 years of age) said that they could personally justify
or support the use of suicide bombings if it was in the defense of
Islam.

In his 2009 'wake up call' to the Church, Anglican Archbishop Peter
Akinola said, "The agenda of Muslim leaders [is] to impact every part
of Western society with Islamic doctrine and the implementation of
shari'a Law."

These are some of the challenging circumstances that face us as we
begin 2010 and seek to find solutions to the growing challenge
presented by a resurgent global Islam.

I continue to believe that the gospel message of Jesus Christ is the
only solution for a world racked with pain and violence.

When Christians return to their source of divine inspiration, the Holy
Bible, they come face to face with the person of Jesus Christ and the
gospel of love and reconciliation He preached, as well as his atoning
death on the cross and his supreme example of service, suffering and
non-violence.

At the same time, Jesus warned his followers not to be naive, but to
be "wise as serpents and harmless as doves". Therefore Christians must
act as a voice for the voiceless and powerless and expose those who
perpetrate acts of terrorism and persecution along with the causes for
their actions.

Solvitur ambulando cum deo - the solution will be found walking with
God.
