Powerful Bus Blast Kills 8 in Tolyatti

TolyattiBy David Nowak and Sergei Sergeyev

TOLYATTI, Samara Region -- A powerful explosion ripped through a passenger bus Wednesday in the car-manufacturing city of Tolyatti, killing eight and injuring at least 54.

Investigators are treating the blast, which struck during morning rush hour at a busy intersection, as an act of terrorism.

Alexander Bastrykin, head of the Investigative Committee, a semiautonomous body under the auspices of the Prosecutor General's Office, said the blast could have been ordered by militants based in the North Caucasus, Interfax reported.

The "Caucasian trail ... is being investigated, among others," Bastrykin told Interfax.

Investigators are also considering a criminal conflict or accidental detonation as possibilities, said Yury Rozhin, head of the Federal Security Service's Samara region branch.

'Islamophobia' Used to Crush Muslim Dissent, Panel Says

( - Muslim extremists are branding opponents "Islamophobes" in an effort to paint themselves as the victim and silence dissent and opposition to their political and religious beliefs, according to a panel convened in Washington, D.C., Tuesday.

"'Islamophobia' has become ... the new battleground in this war" on terrorism, Anne Bayefsky, a senior fellow at the conservative Hudson Institute, said at the panel discussion.

She said the term "inverts victim and perpetrator" by portraying Islamic fanatics as the victim, thus allowing them to label dissent as a violation of human rights and, in effect, silence dissent.

The Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) at the United Nations has been lobbying hard for bans against "Islamaphobia, which are "tantamount to blasphemy strictures that have been used to curtail freedoms of expression, press, and religion by some of the OIC's most repressive member states," noted the Hudson Institute in its preview to the panel discussion.

The term "Islamaphobia" will be a major focus of the 2009 U.N. World Conference on Racism in Durban, South Africa.

Bayefsky said the goal of conference organizers, including Libya, Cuba and Iran, is to "deflect attention from the human rights abuses" and "to circle the wagons, to invoke mass hysteria, to suggest to people that they are under threat, which is in fact imaginary."

She said that by labeling themselves victims of Islamophobia, leaders of Islamic regimes can justify harsh crackdowns on internal dissent and legitimize calls for similar crackdowns on outside criticism - such as calls for the punishment of cartoonists who depict the Muslim prophet Mohammed.

"If you can claim the other guy is the human rights violator," Bayefsky said, "if you become the victim of racism and Islamophobia, then you justify the so-called struggle against the enemy of human rights."

Some panelists, including Fahad Nazer, a resident fellow at the Institute for Gulf Affairs, said that Islamophobia does exist, pointing to Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.), a long-shot Republican presidential hopeful, as an example.

Tancredo came under fire in July for suggesting in a radio interview that Mecca, a Muslim holy site, should be bombed if Muslim terrorists detonate a nuclear weapon in the United States.

"There is certainly something there," Nazer said of claims of Islamophobia being harmful to mainstream Muslims.

Bayefsky acknowledged that "insofar as it means discrimination against Muslims, there's nothing wrong with condemning Islamophobia."

"But the problem is that it has been manipulated as a term to mean something quite different, to suggest that there aren't particular cases of discrimination, but a kind of mass movement on the part of western governments and non-Muslims to denounce all of Islam, which is not the case," she added.

The panelists agreed that the United Nations was not a reliable vessel through which to address issues of human rights or discrimination against certain religions.

Nazer suggested that there is reason to believe the Islamic regimes themselves may be shifting their approach to dissent.

"They will reform, however they'll do it on their own terms and at their own pace," he said, specifically referring to Saudi Arabia. "The good news is that Saudi officials condemn terrorism routinely."

But, he said, "other developments ... are more ominous," such as reformers being asked to stop their political activism or being thrown in prison.

Nonetheless, Nazer said, "more than any [U.N.] declaration or conference, the Saudis are in a position to lead the Muslim nations by example and they can do so by lifting restrictions on speech, assembly and worship."

Madrid bombers get long sentences

MadridSource: BBC

A Spanish court has sentenced three men to thousands of years in jail for their part in the Madrid bombings in 2004.

Moroccans Jamal Zougam and Otman el Ghanoui and Spaniard Emilio Trashorras were convicted of murder, but suspected mastermind Rabei Osman was acquitted.

Twenty-one - out of 28 on trial - were convicted and seven acquitted over the blasts on four trains that killed 191 and injured more than 1,800.

Victims' families said the accused had got off lightly.

All had pleaded not guilty to involvement in the Islamist attacks during the four-month trial.

Inside the HLF Jury

Reader Donna D. describes herself as "HLF trial watcher" and has previously forwarded her observations of the HLF jury as it deliberated in Dallas. The jury ultimately proved to be hung on charges submitted to it against all but one of the defendants, who was acquitted of all charges but one. Over the weekend she drew our attention to the Dallas Morning News article by Jason Trahan on a possible retrial. Trahan's. Only one juror -- William Neal -- has publicly spoken out regarding the government's case and the jury's deliberations.

Neal has ardently attacked the government case as well as certain of his fellow jurors, whose education and insight he finds lacking. He sounds like he imbibes his news and attitude from National Public Radio. Donna dubs Neal "the bully juror." The Dallas Morning News article quotes Neal's interview (audio accessible at the link) with a local Dallas radio station. Donna writes:

The Dallas Morning News article cut out some Neal's most revealing statements -- see comparison excerpts below. If anyone doubts this case should be tried again, they just need to listen to this bully juror's interviews. As Jason Trahan noted in his article, "Mr. Neal admitted he ran roughshod over most other panelists, whose intellectual abilities he has criticized."

Among other things, Neal has gone on record to say that he didn’t even think the defense needed to stand up and present a case; that the prosecution case was “a waste of time;” that the case was only about George Bush. “George Bush shut them down and he's just trying to make sure that he gets that case closed." He said the reason for the loss of the first juror after a week was the juror thought they were guilty and just did not want to argue about it any more. He is taking credit for having turned the jury away from their own opinions that the defendants were guilty.


Neal: "A lot of the jurors couldn't even say words that had four syllables," Mr. Neal said. "A lot of these people were blue collar. You had people of secluded lifestyles. They have no idea of worldly affairs....What the prosecution was showing us was fear."


Neal: "A lot of the jurors couldn't even say words that had four syllables," Mr. Neal said. “They just picked a jury based on socio-economical reasons.”

"A lot of these people were blue collar—working UPS, working cafeteria, uh, cashier. You had people of secluded lifestyles."

“They had no idea of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. They have no idea about worldly affairs and to get them and show them bombs and show them the kids, ‘Well, that’s not our lifestyle so we got to vote them guilty because of that.’ That’s the whole reason. Honestly if I had not been on that jury this would have been a different case.”

More illuminating William Neal comments from the radio interview:

KRLD: Do you think [the large number of charges] was by design?

Neal: Oh course it was by design.

KRLD: The reason I ask is that the more confusing it is the harder it is going to be to get a verdict and you have to wonder, “Well is it by design because we realized after we started this thing, we’re Mike Nifong here? We can’t make the case? They didn’t say the stripper is a nappy headed ho? Or is it a case of, we will just throw so much out there they’ll be so confused, they’ll have to go with us because they don’t want to take a chance.

Neal: That’s exactly right.

KRLD: So it’s the latter then?

Neal: "A lot of the jurors couldn't even say words that had four syllables," Mr. Neal said. “They just picked a jury based on socio-economical reasons.” "A lot of these people were blue collar—working UPS, working cafeteria, uh, cashier. You had people of secluded lifestyles. “They had no idea of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. They have no idea about worldly affairs and to get them and show them bombs and show them the kids, ‘Well, that’s not our lifestyle so we got to vote them guilty because of that.’ That’s the whole reason. Honestly if I had not been on that jury this would have been a different case.”

KRLD: But on a jury don’t you want to go in with no preconceived notions?....Maybe the best thing in this case was to have people who don’t know about the background, so they can hear both sides equally?

Neal: Well, yes and no. I think what the prosecution was showing us was fear. The fear of being blown up, a fear of bombing to sway that ignorance. Okay we’re going to show them the bomb belt and the kids running around with little guns and emulating Hamas heroes—whatever—that was the fear coming into it. That was a huge part of the prosecution’s attempt to get these guys guilty.


KRLD: Just looking at this in a legal sense, you have both sides playing on emotion. Here’s needy kids, they need to eat. Here’s that same kid with a bomb belt on, he’s going to blow you up. So you have both sides playing on emotional levels here and in all of that you have to hope and pray that the people in the jury can see beyond all that and see what the real live, touching facts are.

Neal: For the most part a lot of the jury did believe that. Like I said earlier, a lot of people felt that way, they just didn’t vote that way. But the last hold out, she was so wishy washy. If verdicts were closed, we’d be in by nine and out by five. She was that wishy washy. Thursday she’d change her mind and Monday she’d change her mind again. In fact, she even tried to change her mind again when the judge came back to greet us after the case was over.

KRLD: It seems like with someone like that the idea would be to excuse yourself from the jury, and say, I just don’t think I’m qualified to make decisions.

Neal: She was just after the check. She lost her job during this case. She was there for vacation and checks. She was flim flaming all over the place.

Donna refers to another interview with Neal (video at the link) and comments:

In the post trial interview with Rebecca Lopez of WFAA, Neal made mention of “an awkward moment” when the judge came back to greet the jurors after the trial, saying she said, "I don’t understand." Now he is saying she was trying to change her mind again at that time. Really painting the hold out juror as ignorant, devious, lazy, just out for the check. This guy is a complete jerk. That lady may have only be a cafeteria cashier but she at least paid attention during the trial, continually took notes and didn’t fold to his bullying as all the other jurors did.

Donna also cites this Texas Lawyer article on the jury deliberations and comments:

Was the holdout juror as “ignorant” as HLF juror William Neal has been feeding a too-willing to listen and just accept press?

[Paul D. Stickney, the assigned U.S. magistrate judge on the case] Stickney recalls that earlier on Oct. 18, one juror seemed upset and concerned about the jury's decisions. Stickney says she asked if the individual jurors would be polled.

On Oct. 22, before the 10 a.m. scheduled proceeding, juror No. 7 wrote a note to the judge asking: "1. Are we going to be polled? 2. Does undecided mean (not guilty). If we are not going to be polled I would like to give my statement with the court reporter there on some of charges with the defendants will you please let me know...."

Media Legitimizes Islamic Extremists While Defaming Muslims

On October 29, 2007, Texas court held a hearing on TRO filed against Joe Kaufman. The next day the Internet was flooded with the following headlines:
"Islamic Groups Sues Joe Kaufman of Americans Against Hate"
"Islamic groups sue man who arranged protest"
"TRO Against Anti-Muslim Group Extended"
"TX Muslims Sue FL Islamophobe for Defamation"

We already addressed the "Anti-Muslim" and "Islamophobe" aspects earlier. There are other, more subtle, but also more dangerous issues with those headlines. We cannot stress enough how important it is to draw a distinction between moderate Muslims and Muslim extremists, between Islam and Islamism. However the aforementioned headlines and articles associated with them completely ignore that distinction and mislead their readers in the process.

The infamous Nazi rallies are never described as Christian events because most Christians are disgusted with the Nazis. However, when Islamofascist organizations put out their events, it seems to be universally acceptable to describe those events as Muslim or Islamic. Why such double-standards? Why does the media shun Christian extremists, but embraces Muslim extremists? Is there a hidden agenda or just complete ignorance?

It is OK to bash MuslimsWestern Muslim community and Western media must address the following issues arising from ignoring the difference between Islam and Islamism:

1. Radical Muslims are legitimized as mainstream
2. Moderate Muslims are bunched together with the radicals, which gives credence to the notion that all Muslims are radicals and gives rise to Islamophobia -->

We ask everyone in the media:
- If you do not understand the difference between Islam and Islamism, stop providing your opinions on the subject
- If you do understand that difference, please make it clear every time you address the subject and call everything by its proper name

Some of the favorite media questions are "where are the moderate Muslims" and "why are they silent". Well, we are right here. It's you who don't want to hear what we have to say.

EmersonBy Steven Emerson

October 29, 2007 -- THE trial of four key figures with the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development ended last week with a hung jury. Holy Land's defenders and allies are trumpeting the mistrial as a huge victory. Yet the defendants remain in legal jeopardy, with a new trial almost assured - and the prosecution has, at a minimum, closed a lucrative funding channel for the Palestinian terror group Hamas.

Prosecutors in the Northern District of Texas deserve praise for bringing this case in the first place. The trial record conclusively demonstrated that Holy Land and several of its unindicted co-conspirators - including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) - grew out of Hamas. Moreover, it showed that they spent the better part of 15 years deceiving government agencies and the media, hiding their true goals under a mask of work for charity and civil rights.

To be sure, the mistrial was portrayed as another in a series of setbacks for the government's anti-terror prosecution strategy. Notably, several jurors seemed to discount the testimony of an Israeli security expert, testifying under an assumed name, apparently on the belief that Israelis cannot be trusted on Palestinian matters.

Some jurors may even have bought the defense argument that anti-Israel terror isn't truly terrorism, but merely "resisting the occupation." One juror told the Dallas Morning News of his difficulty in describing Hamas as a terrorist group, stating, "Part of it does terrorist acts, but it's a political movement. It's an uprising."

The highly technical nature of some evidence likely also played a role. Whatever the reasons, prosecutors failed to persuade the jury, unanimously and beyond a reasonable doubt, that Holy Land and its officials deliberately routed money to Hamas through a set of Palestinian charities. But the jury was also unable to fully exonerate the defendants, and the government has announced its intent to retry the case.

Moreover, the trial uncovered numerous ugly secrets of Holy Land and its leaders. For starters, it exposed as lies their oft-made claims to not be supporting Hamas. The evidence clearly linked Holy Land and CAIR to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the hard-line Egyptian Islamist umbrella group and godfather of every Sunni terrorist group from Hamas to al Qaeda.

Former Holy Land CEO Shukri Abu Baker, for example, told a Dallas Morning News reporter in 1996, "We were never associated with Hamas." Yet Baker's own credit-card bills show he and other Holy Land defendants repeatedly covered travel expenses for Hamas leaders - including Mohammed Siyam and Mahmud Zahar - in the early 1990s.

Siyam, a Hamas sheikh who has stated that jihad is the only way to liberate Palestine and that "America is the sworn enemy and it is from her that the Jews take the weapons and soldiers," and Zahar, the Hamas foreign minister recently deposed as a result of the factional infighting in Gaza, spoke at Holy Land fund-raisers in the United States and South America that generated tens of thousands of dollars. (True, transactions with and support for Hamas had not yet been banned - but those facts still stand in direct contrast with Baker's public denials.)

But the trial's biggest revelations was the full transcript of a secret 1993 meeting in Philadelphia of "The Palestine Committee" - a group of Hamas members and supporters.

Baker and co-defendant Ghassan Elashi (who's already been sentenced in a different trial to six-plus years for, in part, laundering money for Hamas) participated. At no time during it did either man reject Hamas' ideology or call for it to temper its violence.

Overall, the transcript shows that Holy Land was an active player in a larger Muslim Brotherhood network aimed at organizing support in America for Hamas.

Also at the meeting were two men who would later be founders of CAIR - Omar Ahmad, the group's first chairman, and Nihad Awad, who is now its executive director.

Ahmad convened the Philadelphia gathering: "This meeting was called for by the Palestine Committee," he said, "in order to have a seminar or a meeting to the brothers present here today in order to study the situation in light of the latest developments on the Palestinian arena, its effects and impact on our work here in America."

The transcripts (from an FBI recording) make it clear that all present opposed any peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and, in fact, wanted a Palestinian state on the '48 borders, Palestinian code for the destruction of Israel:

Omar Ahmad: We've always demanded the 1948 territories. I mean, we demanded . . .

Unidentified speaker: Yes, but we don't say that publicly. You cannot say it publicly. In front of the Americans . . .

Ahmad: No, we didn't say that to the Americans.

CAIR seems to hope that, by trumpeting the mistrial as an exoneration, it can bury these disclosures. It has a lot to lose: Numerous people in government and the media, overly eager to find a "moderate" Muslim voice, have long accepted CAIR's denials of its radicalism and its ties to terrorism. The first trial produced copious amounts of evidence to the contrary; if people actually pay attention, CAIR might lose its "moderate" label even in the pages of The New York Times.

Islamists Attempt to Quash Free Speech that Unmasks their Radical Agenda

On October 14, 2007 Joe Kaufman, a chairman of American Against Hate, organized a protest against the Islamic Circle of North America. ICNA has well documented ties to Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood and should really be called the ISLAMIST Circle of North America, especially, since it openly advocates for establishment of Sharia in the United States.

During the protest, Mr. Kaufman was served with temporary restraining order filed by Islamic Society of Arlington, Al Hedayah Islamic Center, Dar Elsalam Islamic Center, DFW Islamic Educational Center, Inc., Islamic Association of Tarrant County, Islamic Center of Irving, and Muslim American Society of Dallas.

The TRO restraints Joe Kaufman from the following:

- Threatening Plaintiffs in person, by telephone, or in writing to take unlawful action against any person, intending by this action to annoy or alarm Plaintiffs.
- Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly causing bodily injury to Plaintiffs or Plaintiffs' associates or members.
- Threatening Plaintiffs or Plaintiffs' associates or members with imminent bodily injury.
- Inciting violence against Plaintiffs, their members or associates.

The Plaintiffs claim that Mr. Kaufman "operates a website ... that tries to foment hate and anger against law abiding United States citizens who practice their religion (Islam) freely as guaranteed by the United States Constitution. ... He wishes to stir up anger, resentment, bias, and hatred of peaceful, law abiding citizens, solely because of their religion. To this end, Defendant Kaufman organizes protests of all things Islamic, attempting to paint them in one broad swath as being allied with Hamas, Al Qaeda, and terrorists. ... To this end, Defendant has painted the Plaintiffs as terrorists."

Several members of Muslims Against Sharia went through multiple statements posted on Mr. Kaufman's website, We have not found a single instance of Islam-bashing or Muslim-bashing that the Plaintiffs are complaining about. However, we found plenty of information that link ICNA and Muslim American Society (MAS) to Islamist groups both at home and abroad.

This is a despicable act of American Islamist establishment (which IS associated with terrorists) to quash any attempt to unmask its extremist agenda.

Muslims Against Sharia call on every American Muslim to condemn Islamism in general and Plaintiffs in particular and voice their support for Mr. Kaufman.

Silver Linings: Trial Exposed Secrets

EmersonBy Steven Emerson

It's understandable that attention this week is focused on the mistrial declared in the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) Hamas-support case. The government failed to persuade jurors beyond a reasonable doubt that the foundation and its officials deliberately routed money to Hamas through a set of Palestinian charities.

With the exception of Mohammed El-Mezain, the defendants find themselves exactly in the same position they were in when this case was indicted in 2004. El-Mezain was acquitted on all but one count against him. But that count, conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, is no minor threat to his freedom.

Islamofascism (or Islamism) is the main threat facing modern civilization and ignorance about this threat is astounding. We hope that this event becomes regular and reaches every campus.

Why "Islamo-Fascism"?

By Robert Spencer and David Horowitz

When President Bush used the term “Islamo-Fascism” to describe the jihadists who have attacked us, many complained that it reflected prejudice against Muslims. The Council on American Islamic Relations, a “civil rights” organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, protested that the term “feeds the perception that the war on terror is actually a war on Islam.” In fact, the opposite is the truth. As the Algerian sociologist Marieme Helie Lucas explains, the term “Islamo-Fascism” was “initially coined by Algerian people struggling for democracy, against armed fundamentalist forces decimating people in our country, then later operating in Europe, where a number of us had taken refuge.” In other words, the term “Islamo-Fascism” originates with moderate Muslims under attack from Muslim radicals, who murdered more than 150,000 Muslims whom they regarded as infidels in Algeria in the 1990s.

Helie Lucas is the founder of the group Women Living Under Muslim Laws, which resists the oppression of women by these fanatics. The term Islamo-Fascism, as she explains, refers to “political forces working under the cover of religion in order to gain political power and to impose a theocracy (‘The Law’ -- singular -- of God, unchangeable, ahistorical, interpreted by self appointed old men) over democracy (i.e. the laws -- plural -- voted by the people and changeable by the will of the people).”

The term “Islamo-Fascism” does not refer to a generalized “war on Islam,” but to a defensive war against the attacks of radicals who have murdered hundreds of thousands of moderate Muslims, Jews, Christians, gays, women and infidels since the first radical Islamic state was formed in Iran in 1979, and the modern global jihad was launched in earnest.

Moderate Muslims who hold to Islam as a religion but reject its political ambitions are happy to live in pluralistic societies that separate religion from the state. Moderate Muslims are willing to live with non-Muslims as equals. It is these Muslims who are the victims of the Islamo-Fascists and the natural allies of the West, which is also the target of the jihad.

The jihadists, who are waging this war, are exponents of political – rather than religious – Islam. They are indeed fascists, sharing crucial ideological convictions with historical fascist movements.

The founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan al-Banna, was an open admirer of Adolf Hitler, as was the principal theorist of the modern jihad, Sayyid Qutb. During World War II, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, cousin of Yasir Arafat and spiritual godfather of Palestinian nationalism, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, was openly pro-Nazi. In May 1941, he issued a fatwa calling upon the Germans to bomb Tel Aviv, and in November 1941 traveled to Berlin and met with Hitler. Then he went to the Balkans, where he spearheaded the creation of Muslim units of the Waffen SS.

The Islamic jihad launched by the Muslim Brotherhood, and carried on by offshoots such as al-Qaeda and Hamas, is a totalitarian movement seeking the control of every aspect of human life through the powers of the state. The jihadists want to bring all social and family life under the sway of Islamic law, through the creation of a global Islamic empire, with a caliphate in Baghdad. Like the Nazis before them, they believe in the inherent superiority of one group of human beings over all the rest, whom they regard as “infidels” and “unbelievers.” These infidels, according to the passages of the Qur’an that they invoke, are the “vilest of creatures” (Qur’an 98:6).

The term “Islamo-fascism” describes the agendas of the jihadists with perfect accuracy. It supports moderate Muslims who are seeking to defend themselves and distinguish their religious faith from the totalitarian faith of the jihad.

No one who wants to see moderate Muslims succeed in their efforts to resist the oppressive doctrines of the Islamo-fascists should oppose the use of this term. Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is an effort to educate the general public about the enemy we face and, in the process, to give moderate Muslims support in their struggle.

Islamofascism Awareness Week: Nonie Darwish at Berkeley

DarwishAs a part of "Islamofascism Awareness Week", Nonie Darwish spoke at U.C. Berkeley on October 22. As usual, Islamofascists and their Dhimmi supporters have shown their unwavering resolve to crush any type of dissent. One the members of the "Students for Justice in Palestine" claimed that the purpose of the "Islamofascism Awareness Week" is to reinvigorate anti-Muslim and anti-Arab campaign. Given the fact that the speaker, Nonie Darwish, is both Muslim by birth and Arab it truly shows the depth of brainwashing on campus.

Law enforcement is not equipped to fight the War on Terror

Terrorism is a military problem; civilian laws do not apply. Time and time again, civilian law enforcement system proved impotent when it comes to fighting terrorism. Sami Omar al-Hussayen, Sami al-Arian, and now Holy Land Foundation. Time and time again, facilitators of murderous acts of terrorism are fully or partially acquitted because it is next to impossible to prove terrorist intent beyond the reasonable doubt.

War is the key word in the War on Terror, which means that military must deal with this issue. The sooner American government starts utilizing military in dealing with military problems, instead of dumping those problems on law enforcement, the sooner we can reverse the losing trend in the War on Terror.

Girls' school blown up in NWA

Muslims Against Sharia condemn barbaric actions of Islamic terrorists intended to intimidate Muslim women and deprive them of educational opportunities.

MIRANSHAH: Pro-Taliban militants blew up a girls' school in restive tribal area bordering Afghanistan, security officials said on Sunday.

The school building was destroyed in the attack in Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan region, after militants planted explosives there late Saturday, a security official said on condition of anonymity. "There were no casualties as the building was empty," he added. The attack came amid an upsurge in violence in Pakistan's deeply conservative tribal zone where militants consider female education un-Islamic.

The new guy with a new mindset

I am "The Admiral". I am also a blogger, I am the owner of Lake Minnetonka Liberty, which is based in the Lake Minnetonka area, in the western suburbs of Minneapolis.

I was really humbled when invited to join Muslims Against Sharia. I'd like to take this opportunity to express my thanks.

Like many, or most I should say, Islam has been an evil word to me. The news we hear is of terrorist attacks, frivolous lawsuits incited by groups like CAIR. And here in Minneapolis, Muslims working in the service industry, refusing to do their jobs citing religious grounds. So from a non-Muslim perspective, my negative feelings toward Islam should seem fairly easy to understand.

With regards to terrorism. We keep hearing that there are Muslims, in fact the majority, that believe it's wrong. Yet we never hear them say it, stand up and denounce it, and basically fight the hijackers of the Islamic faith.

Until now.

Muslims Against Sharia have made an impact in my life. I am no longer "hating" of Muslims. I have a lot to learn when it comes to Islam. My knowledge is mainly that of Surah.

When I happened across this website it really impressed me. And it proved my pre-concieved notions about Muslims wrong. My feeling is we (non-Muslims) need to do all we can to support this website and others like it. The word needs to be out. My mind has changed, and if I can be changed, others can to. We (non-Muslims) owe it to support this effort.

If we turn our backs, I fear the hatred will never end. In my bible, God says, "Love thy neighbor". Muslims are our neighbors.

Ideological Standards Needed to Confront Militant Islam: What Are They?

Dr. M. Zuhdi JasserDr. M. Zuhdi Jasser
American Islamic Forum for Democracy

Virginia Governor Timothy Kaine (D) is to be commended for accepting the resignation of Dr. Esam Omeish from the Virginia Commission on Immigration. It is unfortunate that the Governor did not more thoroughly vet Dr. Omeish prior to his appointment to the commission on immigration.

This embarrassment could have been avoided altogether had Governor Kaine's office applied basic vetting criteria before appointing Dr. Omeish to such an important position.

Dr. Omeish has repeatedly represented an Islamist agenda (political Islam) in his activism. The ideology of Islamism runs against the interests of a strong national immigration policy and American security. In Dr. Omeish's press conference of September 28, 2007, he stated that efforts to question his appointment "undermine a whole community of faith in a relentless campaign of 'Islamophobia' intimidation".

The Investigative Project on Terrorism
Profile of Muslim Students Association

MSA Islamic extremism is on the rise on college campuses across the United States. The spread of radical Islamism on campuses has proven to be an effective tool to garner support and gain legitimacy, exploiting the right of free association with academic institutions. International and domestic groups that advocate extremist or radical causes frequently host lectures and other events on campuses to shore up support and recruit members. Indeed, universities are a fertile field for radicals searching for the next generation of activists and sympathizers.

With nearly 600 chapters -- including roughly 150 chapters directly affiliated with MSA National -- located in the United States and Canada, the Muslim Students Association (MSA) is the most visible and influential Islamic student organization in North America. As reflected in the extensive information presented in this dossier, MSA has gained legitimacy on American campuses as a benevolent collegiate faith club; however, under this moderate veneer MSA advances a different agenda among impressionable college students. Through conferences and events, publications, websites and other activities, MSA disseminates and promotes militant Islamic ideologies. This dossier is on MSA-National as well as the numerous chapters of MSA formally affiliated with MSA-National.

Emerson on Hannity & Colmes; Islam v. Islamofascism

Alan Colmes claims that using the term 'Islamofascism' is "extremely insulting to an entire religion." As a matter of fact, Mr. Colmes claims that any pejorative term combined with 'Islamic' is offensive, because it makes Islam in its entirety look bad.

What this interview actually shows is the degree of Mr. Colmes' ignorance. While he most likely has good intentions, Alan Colmes is perpetuating the notion of an Islamic monolith, the very notion that presents the main obstacle in separating moderate Muslims from Islamists, or (and I know Mr. Colmes would vehemently object to us using this term) Islamofascists. No moderate Muslims who are secure in their beliefs would be offended by the term 'Islamofascism', because they know it applies neither to them nor to Islam. Muslims who would object to this term are Islamists, because being labeled Islamofascists makes it harder for them to whitewash Islamism in general and terrorism in particular. (People who are still living in the pre-September 11 world and do not understand the difference between Muslims and Islamofascists, should read this post.)

We are asking Alan Colmes:
Please stop being offended for us. All you're doing is hindering our efforts to educate the public on difference between us, moderate Muslims and them, Islamofascists. The faster West is educated on the subject, the faster Islamofascism will be defeated. Islamofascism is an accurate description, not a derogatory term. And when Mr. Emerson calls you an apologist for Islamic extremism it is also an accurate description, not an insult. It is time to discard your PC prism and see the world for what it is, not for what you want it to be.

Have we been good Muslims?

The Muslim Eid al-Fitr (Celebration of Ramadan) is upon us.

Fitr is similar to Lent for Catholics; a celebration of the ending of a month of getting closer to God through soul searching, soul cleansing and clarity. It is not simply a month of self torture by starvation for which God has no respect.

On this day we worship the Lord, thanking Him for what he has given us, for the strength placed upon us and for opening the doors of heaven and calling our names. In addition to a month of fasting, every Muslim donates food for the needy, a practice known as sadaqah al-Fitr; similar to Thanksgiving Day dinner.

Islam means, “Giving one’s soul to God without question.” For authentic Muslims, Heaven’s temptation should not be the main incentive to worship. Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset to remember what it is like to be thirsty and hungry. Rich and poor alike fast the same hours without deference to race, culture or status and, at the end of the day, worship standing side by side before eating (Effitar). Are we really like that in practice? If he were among us today, what would Prophet Mohamad ‘Peace upon him’ say about us during his yearly Ramadan lecture (Khotbeh)? Would he be disappointed? What would Ali, the first Imam of Shiah, fourth Khalifa of Sunni, say to us with the no nonsense attitude of his famous book Nahjol Al-Balagheh?

As an authentic Muslim, my heart and conscience call upon me to stand up to so-called “Muslims” or, eventually, there will be no peaceful Islam left in our world. As a Shiah Muslim, I keep my conscience clear because it is required by the teachings of the Prophet.

Thirty years of study tells me He would call us cowards and shame us for not standing up to the barbarism of Bin Laden, for not seeing the real evil among us, for misusing God’s word in calling others “infidel” when the personification of an infidel lives among us. Al Quaeda, a cancerous blasphemy, is destroying Islam as we watch with neglect because we can’t prioritize our pride to answer when people ask, “Where are the Good Muslims?” We sit quietly as closed minded people like Janet Levy from Front Page Magazine condemns all Muslims as latent terrorists.

Our God is not likely to reward the lack of authentic education for Muslims, based on peace and love as Prophet taught by example, and allowing ignorance to breed in our hearts, with Heavenly prizes.

Perhaps He would refresh our memories that although Shiah and Sunni both believe Ramadan starts and ends at the next cycle of the moon; they consciously celebrate this festive occasion on a different date; Friday of this month for Sunni and Saturday for Shiah.

Prophet calls us to answer, “Didn’t I teach you to value one moment of truth more than 70 years of prayers?” Why didn’t you stand up to Bin Laden who destroyed God’s religion on 9/11, bringing it to the lowest of the low? Why didn’t you act when you saw Iranian children for sale on the internet?

This peaceful religion has been abused by men in the business of God. Infidel is someone of any religion, Bin Laden, Khomani, Sadam, Al Zarqavi, who kills in the name of God. Prophet would be dismayed by the cruelty of wealthy Arabs toward those they bring to their countries as servants but treat as slaves. Arab women, although treated as no more than goods themselves, are oblivious to whether the diamonds they wear as paeans to polygamy came at the cost of a limb of someone in Africa.

We are dead wrong to think we can do hurtful things and assume praying five times daily will make it OK. Prophet would probably remind us, “Didn’t I teach you to be kind to others by my forgiving the Jewish man who poured hot ashes on me?” Didn’t I teach you when I deliberately lingered to play with children when I was late for a Khotbeh to many important people? Didn’t I teach you to smile so our world would smile with you and to show your hearts through human gestures?” He was so passionate that even his enemies had a hard time being angry at him in his presence.

Despite Ms. Levy’s denial, Islam has been hijacked from a Godly business to a business of God. Muslims do little to correct that impression and then wonder why non-Muslims don’t think of us as peaceful. A religion of pure, light hearted worshipers has become a religion of the mind where charlatans promise virgins in Heaven for men who take lives in the name of God without justification. We turned His peaceful white religion into a black and bloody morass; from the green of prosperity to the gray of oppression and yellow of disease; from the quiet blue of a majestic and holy feeling to a red blood bath with warriors who carry weapons instead of the teachings of Prophet in their hearts.

We try to intimidate others by showing our teeth at them. Then, we expect to be considered KIND.

Men and women who have lost their battle with Evil; turning over their hearts and minds and obeying Evil without question are destroying our religion.

If we don’t stand up today, we will one day, too late, stand remorsefully before God.

State-Sanctioned Polygamy in Israel

Muslims Against Sharia condemn treatment of women by the State of Israel. Government-sanctioned polygamy is unbecoming of a country that claims to be the only true Democracy in the Middle East. We call on Israeli Knesset to immediately enact a law prohibiting married men to marry more women. No civilized society of the 21st century can permit this medieval practice. No civilized society treats its women as less than human beings.

Islam is NOT the Enemy; Ignorance Is!

"Gradually--painfully gradually--people are beginning to see that islam is the enemy. Period."
The above quote is one of the milder examples of how many Westerners view Islam these days. This quote is a part of the comment to the article titled "Why We Cannot Rely on Moderate Muslims." posted on the Gates of Vienna blog. The article talks about radical Muslims in the West claiming to be moderates. It also brings up very interesting points. "[T]he government and media are avid to find moderate Muslims -- and as their desperation has increased, their standards have lowered.", "The situation is complicated by many factors, including, taqiyya and kitman", and "How can we ever trust assurances from self-proclaimed moderate Muslims when deception of non-Muslims is so widespread, and lying to infidels is an accepted and established way of hiding Islamic goals? The answer, with all its difficult implications, is: We can't."

Congress Crosses the Line. Where is the Outrage?

Muslims Against Sharia condemn politically correct cowardice of the United States Congress. We call on every American Muslims to contact their congressmen, and voice their disgust with Congress’ blatant disregard for the United States Constitution.

Congressional Resolution HRES 635 EH:

Ahmed Bedier, another "Moderate" Islamist

I usually don't use Google search engine due to the fact the Google does not display (blocks) many anti-Islamists websites. But I happened to use my friend's computer and the browser has a built-in Google search window. So, being a lazy bum that I am I used it. The search term was 'Moderate Muslims' and I was a little shocked when I got this:

This is a link advertising Ahmed Bedier, a "Moderate Muslim Leader" and an "Expert."

Well, he is an expert, all right. An expert on manipulating media and government Dhimmis. Ahmed Bedier works for CAIR, a HAMAS front. It is the same Bedier who said that there was nothing immoral in being associated with PIG (Palestinian Islamic Gihad) before 1995. (For the record, Palestinian Islamic Gihad started its murderous history way before 1995.) It is the same Bedier who defended Sami al-Arian, who is in prison for terrorism. It is the same Bedier who on Glenn Beck's CNN show attacked Dr. Tawfik Hamid for taking part in the Secular Islam Summit. It is the same Bedier who uses his radio show to give forum to Hizballah supporters. You can find many examples of Bedier's 'moderacy' at My personal favorite is this one:

'Catholic priests pose more of a terrorism threat by having sex with young altar boys than those who flew planes into the World Trade Center.'

(Ahmed Bedier to Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite, during surprise CAIR meeting with Congresswoman, May 29, 2004).

Now, do Google employees who are responsible for this 'advertising' understand what a 'Moderate Muslim' is and that Bedier is anything, but moderate? Probably not. Do they care? Highly unlikely. So what we have here is just another example of pathetic Dhimmis helping to pave the way for the rise of radical Islam in the West. When will they wake up? Will they ever wake up? I'm not holding my breath.

The Hamas PR Machine in America

By Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld and Alyssa A. Lappen

On August 8, the U.S. Treasury Department designated the al-Salah Society as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT), calling it "one of the largest and best funded Hamas charities." Treasury revealed that Hamas had used al-Salah, "to finance its terrorist agenda." The designation was one of many actions taken against Hamas front groups dating back to 1995, when Washington first designated Hamas a terrorist organization. Unfortunately, these actions do little to hinder Hamas activities in America.

The problem is not that Treasury's actions are insufficient. Rather, U.S. companies continue to knowingly or unwittingly facilitate Hamas Internet and television services. Moreover, professors, media outlets, and even a former U.S. president, help Hamas broadcast its messages throughout America, even as Washington attempts to weaken the terror group following the violent takeover of Gaza.

Whitewashing Hamas in the Classroom

While Hamas represses its own Palestinian people in Gaza and continues to launch rockets into Israel indiscriminately, a legion of U.S. apologists, including Muslim lobby groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), propose that the U.S. recognize the terrorist government, so it may be influenced to modify its agenda. Leading the charge, alongside the Muslim lobby groups, are American academicians.

Boston University professor Augustus Richard Norton and Harvard University Middle Eastern Studies scholar Sara Roy recently co-authored an article for the Christian Science Monitor entitled, "Yes, You Can Work With Hamas," encouraging Washington to recognize the legitimacy of the terrorist organization. Writer Cinnamon Stillwell notes that Roy, in particular, has "long been invested in forging the idea of a ‘New Hamas' by attempting to downplay the group's openly genocidal ambitions and picturing them instead as an enlightened group of do-gooders interested only in social services and education."

Roy and Norton are not alone. Scores of other professors, including the University of Maryland's Shibley Telhami; associate professor of political science and international relations at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Virginia Tilley; and Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi, have increasingly sided with Hamas, blaming all Palestinian woes on Israel, despite the fact that an internationally recognized terrorist organization now governs Gaza.

Read All Over

The positions advanced by these academicians are also buttressed by the mainstream press, which has helped Hamas spread its propaganda. On November 1, 2006, for instance, The New York Times ran an opinion piece penned by Ahmed Yousef, an advisor to Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh. Yousef claimed that Israel refused a Hamas-proposed ceasefire with Israel. What the Times failed to note was that Yousef's call for a hudna was essentially a call to let the guns fall silent in the near term, but did nothing to assure that Hamas' long-term goal of destroying Israel would be addressed.

On June 20, immediately following the violent takeover of Gaza, both The New York Times and The Washington Post, America's newspapers of record, ran two different op-eds by Yousef. The Times piece, entitled "What Hamas Wants," falsely claimed that after the Hamas coup, "the streets of Gaza are now calm," promising reform and disarmament under Hamas rule. In truth, Hamas has imposed a Taliban-like regime in Gaza that includes the killing of innocents, arbitrary confiscation of property, muzzling the media, and increased links to Iran and al-Qaeda. The Times, however, insisted that running the Hamas opinion piece contributed to a greater understanding of Gaza's new rulers.

The Washington Post, on the same day, ran a separate op-ed penned by Yousef entitled, "Engage With Hamas." The piece argued that if Gaza became "a breeding ground for terrorism," Washington would be to blame, particularly if it did not engage with the new Hamas regime. These publications handed Hamas a propaganda coup.

Predictably, pro-Israel groups were enraged over the two opinion pieces. But the mainstream media was unmoved. On July 10, 2007, The Los Angeles Times ran an op-ed entitled, "Hamas' Stand," by Mousa Abu Marzook, a Damascus-based Hamas official heavily involved in Hamas fundraising. Marzook insisted that the terrorist group's, "militant stance cannot by itself be the disqualifying factor."

Over the Airwaves

The Hamas PR machine penetrates U.S. airwaves, too. The easiest venue to disseminate its message has been the Qatar-based al-Jazeera satellite television channel. While the channel is not accessible on cable or local satellites, Americans can easily access it on the Internet. The channel has helped Hamas transmit the idea that suicide operations, or "martyrdom," is approved by the prominent cleric and spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, Yousuf al-Qardawi. On July 16, 2007, for example, al-Jazeera featured a program in which Hamas chief Khaled Meshal, sitting alongside Qardawi, thanked the cleric for his "support of martyrdom operations." Meshal praised Qardawi because he issued, "rulings in support of these operations, and there were times when we were in dire need of these rulings."

American networks, for their part, have provided a platform for one of Hamas' most ardent advocates, former President Jimmy Carter. In one interview, Carter told ABC that, "Hamas leaders sent me word that what they want to do is to form, to quote them, a peaceful, united, unity government." The former president cast no doubt on this proclamation from a known terrorist organization. Indeed, he pleaded with American viewers on CNN to, "Give Hamas a chance."

Hamas also relies heavily upon the Internet to disseminate its virulent anti-Israel and anti-American message, which arguably makes their computer keyboards as dangerous as the rockets they fire into Israel. The Internet allows Hamas to raise funds, plan terrorist attacks, maintain international communication, and expand influence and recruitment through advertising and chat rooms.

Hamas operates a number of sites including:;;;;;;;;;;; and Perhaps the most well known Hamas propaganda website is the Lebanon-based "Palestine-info" network of 20 or more websites. Domains include:, and The operation is run from Beirut by senior Hamas activist Nizar Hussein, with instructions from Damascus-based Hamas chief Khaled Meshal.

A page entitled "Heroic Stories" on Palestine-info is a good example of the virulent content on this website network. Here, Hamas glorifies female suicide bombers, and includes a religious ruling (fatwa) from Qardawi. Other Palestine-info pages include idealized photos and propaganda of weapons-toting suicide bombers.

The Palestine-info websites include official Hamas news, propaganda, and chat forum outlets in eight languages targeting the Middle East, Western Muslim communities, as well as non-Muslims around the world. In addition to English and Arabic, Palestine-info publishes pages in Farsi, Urdu, Malaysian, and Turkish, as well as Russian (targeting Chechens) and French (for North Africans).

Internet Service Providers

Opinions vary on the exact number of American Internet service providers (ISPs) that facilitate Hamas activities on the web. According to, an activist website, Hamas purchased 18 websites (roughly 60 percent of its sites) from North American providers. However, an August 2007 report by Dr. Reuven Erlich asserts that Hamas obtained only about seven (roughly 35 percent) of its estimated 20 websites from North American ISPs.

Either way, corporations that sell server space and Internet services to Hamas are aiding and abetting the terrorist network. U.S. companies that support Hamas via the web include,, Network Solutions LLC, OnlineNIC Inc.,, eNom Inc., Defender Technologies Group, and Canadian firms that service Hamas include: Groupe iWeb Technologies Inc., Tucows Inc., and


The Hamas PR machine exploits the American democratic system to spread hatred and incitement through America's communications infrastructure, thereby assisting Hamas fundraising and recruitment activities. U.S. journalists, academics, and television networks that implore Washington to engage in dialogue with Hamas are providing this terrorist group with national and international platforms. Although these actions aid and abet our enemies, our Constitution protects them.

However, we can shutter Hamas websites, especially when providers are American, by invoking the Patriot Act, which defines facilitation of terrorist communications services as a terrorist act. Congress can also help by instituting new "Know Your Customer" requirements for all Internet service providers, and specifically network access and domain name register companies.

Some analysts argue that Hamas websites and TV broadcasts must remain operational so that the intelligence community can monitor them. This is a poor strategy. For every day these platforms remain online, hate propaganda continues to poison millions of minds, drawing recruits, and raising funds. And the terrorists go on killing.

Subject: Muslims & Sen.Hillary Clinton
Date: Thu, July 19, 2007 6:33 am

Dear Ms. Natalie Jones, Senior Staff for Senator Hillary Clinton:

In today's PAL-C News-letter from Wash-DC, I just reviewed your plan for the Pakistan-American community hosting a dinner on 25th July in DC area, for the Presidential Candidate(Sen.Hillary Clinton).

For decades, I was a die-hard Republican in Kansas, getting Republicans elected there & nation wide.
For several years now, I am an Independent in Missouri. We all staunchly OPPOSE George Bush Dictatorial Policies, which are the ROOT Cause of Disaster world-wide. Also, George Bush is promoting dangerous atmosphere against MUSLIMS.

Attached email below(issued on 3rd July) will provide an example, of a Radio Station(WTOP-FM in DC) committing a CRIME against Muslims, & not a single OFFICIAL in US has done anything?? The radio station host called Muslims a Cancer.

Every day in US, we now read & see such HORRIFIC acts against Muslims:-

1)Muslims houses & Mosques have been attacked & sometimes burnt, & their properties destroyed...Muslims arrested, only because they are Pious Muslims.

2)Mosques attacked & spied-on by GOVT....Muslims Spied-on by GOVT, at homes, offices, telephones, emails, etc.

3)Muslim women & men & children have been Threatened, Humiliated & assaulted PUBLICALLY.

4)Muslims have been very cunningly fired or denied business opportunities.
5)Muslims are very cunningly denied jobs or promotions.

6)Media(big Majority) is committing continous Crimes against Humanity, by
the Terrorizing Terminology & Words being utilized against Muslims in the
Media. Sometimes, the Media is also very cunningly Lying against Muslims.

7)Attorneys are receiving hidden-threats &
ZERO-LEGAL-Professional-Cooperation from the Govt, & even sometimes
Death-Threats from unkown sources, whenever the Attorneys are defending

8)Officials(elected or appointed), are mostly & purposefully NOT taking
any serious ACTION against any one, who is committing the above Crimes
against Muslims. Officials are just issuing Hog-wash statements.

9)ETC, ETC, that we all read & observe daily nationwide against the
MUSLIMS, which are serious VIOLATIONS of our Constitution(& its

We are therefore requesting Senator Hillary Clinton, to please announce
during the dinner & ISSUE a PUBLIC Statement, in SUPPORTING the
Prosecution of any one in Media, or of any
Individual/Organization/Company, or of any Official(elected or appointed),
who has committed such Crimes against the Muslims.

Best-Regards, Arshad Ali Khan, President, UMMAA-Broadcasting ,

Secular Islam Summit: The St. Petersburg Declaration

Aryans are Masters of the World; Everyone else is Subhuman

If you think that the title sounds a little out of date, (seventy years or so), think again!
On August 28, 2007, Dr. Hamza Dhib Mustafa, member of the Palestinian Authority Supreme Fatwa Council, appointed last year by a so-called "moderate" PA president Mahmoud Abbas, stated the following:

"Muslims are masters of the world, its leaders and teachers, even if the West rejects this."

Muslims Against Sharia condemn, in the strongest possible terms, Dr. Mustafa's statement and demand his immediate excommunication and removal from the PA Supreme Fatwa Council. As a figure of religious authority, Dr. Mustafa has a responsibility to strive for World Peace and not to call for worldwide domination of Islam. We hold PA president Mahmoud Abbas responsible for his appointee and demand a public apology and repudiation of Dr. Mustafa's statement. We call on all democratic governments, including the governments of Israel and the United States to halt any aid to Palestinian Authority until president Abbas rectifies the situations for which he is personally responsible.

British Dhimmitude: Blair's Empty Promises

Muslims Against Sharia condemn the inaction of the British government in regards to Hizb-ut-Tahrir and al-Muhajirun, two terrorist organizations that call for overthrow of democratic governments and violence against Westerners. After July 7 London bombings, former Prime Minister Tony Blair promised to ban those organizations. It has been over two years, several [unsuccessful or foiled] terrorist attacks, but British government officials are sitting on their hands and Hizb-ut-Tahrir & al-Muhajirun are continuing to spread their vile propaganda.
