Undercover Mosque - With Subtitles

In 2007 — two years after the London terrorist attacks — a camera team from the British network “Channel 4″ spent four months secretly filiming in British mosques (PI reported). The original documentation has been made available today in its entirety with German subtitles. The subject has lost nothing in its relevance to the current situation, for now as then, great and notable Muslim organizations who sell themselves as being moderate in the public eye are otherwise selling Jihad before their followers.

Weekends over Feeling Bad to the Bone.

How 'Brilliant' Can President Obama Be?

Investors business Dailys Jeffrey Howard asked this Question, How Brilliant Can President Obama Be.? 

Every person, newscaster and commentator always prefaces any, even the mildest criticism, of President Obama's policies with some statement about how dazzlingly brilliant the man is. Liberals, conservatives, independents — it never changes. Why is this? And most important of all, is it true?

What and where is the proof that Obama is such a sharp fellow? The recorded evidence is unavailable since his academic records, and test scores from three universities are sealed at his demand. Sure, he graduated from Harvard, but so did George Bush, who earned an MBA but is still pilloried by some as dumber than dirt.

We shall have to examine Obama's performance and make our own assumptions based on observations.

Obama selected advisers and Cabinet heads who have basically no experience in the private sector. He relies heavily on them to tell him what to do about the sick economy. Their knee-jerk responses are Keynesian (borrow and spend), based on a dubious theory popular 70 years ago, and proved unworkable in the past.

They sold us the stimulus ("porkulus") package of spending.The result? Rising unemployment and falling home sales prove that "recovery summer" is going down the tube without touching the sides. The president retains his economic Rasputins. Is loyalty to failure a sign of a great mind?

Obama farmed out the stimulus, omnibus budget, financial reform, cap-and-tax and health care bills to Congress — allowing it free rein. He did not exercise leadership and instead abdicated to the whims of Nancy Pelosi, David Obey, Harry Reid and Chris Dodd.

Trillions are borrowed and spent on the public sector while real jobs evaporate. Banks invest in bonds instead of businesses. Impending and threatened mandates, regulation and tax increases choke off entrepreneurial ambitions. Does this activity indicate a high level of intelligence, or just managerial ineptitude?

The president is unable to string a cogent sentence together without a pair of Teleprompters working perfectly. He can deliver a mesmerizing speech but can't even remember who is standing beside him when the tape runs off the tracks. His most often used extemporaneous word is "um."

This may be a clue as to why he has granted fewer press conferences than any president in memory. Can such performances be equated to "brilliance"? Not in my book.

Stepping in the political equivalent of a doggie dumpling seems to bring out the worst in Obama. Why and how could he pop off with everything from "The Cambridge Police acted stupidly" to flip-flops on the New York mosque issue, and everything in between? His inane mumblings about the skivvy shorts bomber, the public trial of the 9/11 plotters, the fanatic major who gunned down 13 soldiers, the Arizona immigration law and "saving or creating" jobs belies any vast reservoir of intelligence.

Sharp presidents do not dive into lose/lose situations with such gusto.

How is Obama's foreign policy working out? The U.S. needs strong allies to defeat monstrous enemies. Dissing the British, scolding Israel, canceling the missile shield in Eastern Europe and groveling to foreign royalty do not bode well. Our enemies, from Iran to Venezuela, smell weakness and timidity. Ignoring cold reality and dreaming that personal charisma is the solution to international tensions is probably on the daft side of the intelligence continuum.

The "4 million green jobs" mantra espoused by the president is a canard when examined closely. Renewable energy technology exists only due to huge government subsidies. Ethanol is inefficient, raising the prices of gasoline and corn. Wind farms produce intermittent power that flummoxes the grid and requires conventional power plants to run continuously as backup. The net carbon reduction is miniscule.

Both schemes are massive misallocations of resources better used elsewhere. An astute president would inform himself on both sides of the issue rather than blatantly parrot a load of poppycock from the Van Jones crowd.

A Republican president who parties far more than he works would be trashed by every media outlet in the land. But Obama is a Democrat who enjoys the media's deep support. He escapes any serious questions about his busy golf schedule, multiple vacations, endless fundraising and campaigning, constant banquets and concerts in the White House, and his obvious detachment from the people he supposedly leads.

He appears more of a dilettante than a leader. A smart fellow would move to de-emphasize his privileged lifestyle instead of flaunting it in front of a nation mired in a recession.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe Obama (BEG ITAL)is(END ITAL) smart. Then again, Jimmy Carter was intelligent but proved to be the worst president of our lifetimes — up to now.

Coming August 31: ‘Direct Access’ Stimulus Grants for the Muslim Brotherhood

Can we call this another of Imam Obama's Reaching out to Muslims even if those Muslims are supporters of Hamas and other terrorist organizations.

Think of it as ACORN reborn, with a slice of Jihad on the side.

On August 31, this coming Tuesday, the Muslim Brotherhood-associated “Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations” (CCMO) will bring 25-30 Muslim leaders of 20 national Muslim groups to attend a special workshop presented by the White House and U.S. Government agencies (Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services etc.) to provide the groups “funding, government assistance and resources.” The workshop will apparently provide special access for these Muslim Brotherhood organizations: the organizers pledge to provide “direct access” and “cut through red tape.” Government and Muslim groups will hold an Iftar dinner (breaking the fast of Ramadan) after the workshop.

The event was announced in an email newsletter sent August 27 by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism finance trial, long associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, the global Islamist network (great backgrounder here from Hudson Institute). Here are three key paragraphs from the email (the entire article on the August 31 event from the ISNA email is pasted below this post as reference):

This year, a phenomenal next step has been made where government iftars become coupled with workshops to provide resources and benefit the Muslim community. The US Department of Agriculture (DOA) and the Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations (CCMO) have paired the first of such events, scheduled for August 31, 2010.
…Leaders from Muslim organizations around the nation, particularly social service organizations, are invited to a workshop with representatives from the DOA, Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, Health and Human Services, the White House, Department of Education, the Department of Homeland Security, and more. Twenty five to thirty Muslim leaders representing 20 Muslim organizations are expected to attend the workshop.

According to a representative of CCMO, this workshop is designed to clarify how Muslim nonprofits, mosques, Islamic centers, and social service organizations can strengthen their communities through more direct access to opportunities provided to social service agencies at the Federal level. “It will hopefully help cut through some of the red tape and shine light on the many opportunities for funding, government assistance, and resources that we just don’t know about at the local level,” said Elsanousi.

"Martyrs Mosque"

A good question is being asked by Treavor Loudon, on the New Zeal Blog: http://newzeal.blogspot.com/2010/08/martyrs-mosque.html

What will the Ground Zero Mosque eventually be called by Muslims?
A former U.S. diplomat, who spent much of his career in the Muslim world, including tours in Iraq and Pakistan, raises an interesting point about the proposed "Ground Zero Mosque".

While buildings are given formal names, they are also often referred to informally by another name. For example, the John Hancock Center in Chicago is more popularly known as “Big John.” The World Trade Center was more frequently referred to as the “Twin Towers.”

This raises a question for New Yorkers to ponder. How long will it be before those visiting the Mosque and Islamic Cultural Center both locally as well as those from abroad will come to refer to the center by some simpler and probably more descriptive name?

Keeping in mind the two different views of those who flew into the Twin Towers on 9/11, from our side ‘terrorists’ and from many in the Islamic world who celebrated the event by referring to them as ‘martyrs,’ it is logical that some such name as “Martyrs Mosque,” or “Martyrs Center” could easily become the popular Islamic reference, and a constant source of annoyance to New Yorkers.

Such a substitution would quickly spread in the Muslim world and it is not inconceivable that Muslims visiting New York would make the “Martyrs Center” of “Martyrs Mosque” a must on their travel itinerary. It could easily become a place for them to pray and honor the sacrifice the ‘martyrs’ made on behalf of Islam on that fateful September day. Building the Mosque at its suggested location may only be the beginning of problems it will bring to New York City, and not in a good way.

Will the proposed center, if built, become a permanent source of aggravation to Americans?

Will it become an icon and rallying point to America's radical Islamic enemies world wide?

Is that the real intent of this ill-advised project?

My answer to all of the above is a sounding Yes.


On Saturday morning, a special unit of police raided an apartment building in Nalchik, the capital of North Caucasus republic of Kabardino-Balkaria and killed five Islamic militants. They were behind the Moscow metro bombing that killed 40 people and wounded many.

In a separate incident, another four were killed in the same province.

In Dagestan, five more Muslim terrorists were killed but unfortunately an officer also died in the shoot out.

In the Novolaksky region of Dagestan, the head of the election commission Suleiman Gadzhimuadov was shot in the chest by a group of intruders. He died later in the hospital.

The federal security chief Alexander Bortnikov reported that more than 30 Muslim terrorists have been killed so far in this month.

Most of the Muslim militants belong to a group led by warlord Magomedali Vagabov, who was the prime suspect behind the Moscow metro bombing. He himself was killed last week and the Russian authorities are tried to weed out the rest of the militants.

Russia’s mainly Muslim North Caucasus republics, mostly Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia are considered a haven of Muslim terrorists. The militants like to establish an Islamic empire across the North Caucasus.

Russia has been fighting with Muslim terrorists for the last 15 years.

Recently, Dagestan’s leader visited President Dmitry Medvedev and asked for more forces in this state.

The continuous attacks on the terrorists by Russian security forces have decreased the terrorists’ attacks in Chechnya but they are spreading in other areas. The terrorists are now moving towards the Black sea resort region of Sochi. Sochi is going to be very important place in 2014 as it will host the Olympics.

Mosque's Saudi Patron, Connecting the Dots

Mosque's Saudi Patron

Posted 08/26/2010 07:00 PM ET

Investors Business Daily:

Islamofascism: New dots are emerging from the probe into who's behind the Ground Zero mosque, and the radical Muslim Brotherhood is coming into view.

While a couple of U.S. nonprofits — the Cordoba Initiative and its sister, the American Society for Muslim Advancement — are coordinating the New York project, they hardly give the full picture. A Saudi charity has sunk more than $300,000 into ASMA. It's called the Kingdom Foundation — headed by Alwaleed bin Talal, the Saudi prince whose 9/11 relief check was rejected after he blamed the attacks on U.S. foreign policy.

Bin Talal is a major financier of Muslim Brotherhood fronts in the U.S. His foundation is run by Saudi hijabi Muna Abu Sulayman, who appears on ASMA's Web site as one of its "Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow."

"Her work," according to her official bio, "focuses on increasing understanding between Islam and the West through establishment of academic centers and programs, both in the Middle East and the United States."

Sulayman, who spends much of her time in the U.S., happens to be the daughter of Dr. AbdulHamid Abu Sulayman, "one of the most important figures in the history of the global Muslim Brotherhood," according to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report.

So? The Egypt-based Brotherhood is the parent of Hamas and al-Qaida and the source of most of the jihadi ideology and related terror throughout the world today. Citing its secret U.S. archives, prosecutors say the Brotherhood has a plan to "destroy" America "from within," and is using its agents and front groups in the U.S. to carry out that strategy. Like the mafia, it's highly organized, and uses shells and cutouts to launder money.

Dr. Sulayman's U.S. offices were raided by the feds after 9/11 on suspicion of providing material support to terror groups. An unsealed federal search warrant lists him as chairman and president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, or IIIT, the Brotherhood's U.S. think tank.

In December 2008, IIIT hosted Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Rauf to discuss his Shariah Index Project, which will be housed in the planned 15-story structure. The index will formally rate which governments best follow Islamic law, as practiced by Saudi.

Sulayman succeeded Rauf's late father, Muhammad, as rector of the International Islamic University in Malaysia. Rauf keeps an office in Malaysia, and he's held Shariah project meetings there.

Moreover, Rauf's 2004 book on Islam was published in Malaysia under the title, "A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of America Post-9/11." Dawa is Arabic for proselytizing.

In the book, the New York imam calls for a "subsidiary entity within the judiciary" in America that adjudicates on Shariah compliance.

Rauf's father was born in Egypt. Both he and Sulayman studied Islam in Cairo, Brotherhood headquarters. Sulayman is also listed by the feds as secretary of an Islamic school in Virginia called GSISS — at least that's what it used to be called, before it was raided. Now it goes by "Cordoba University."

Rauf insists he's a "healer" trying to build "bridges" between Islam and the West. But these radical Brotherhood connections raise new suspicions.

Islam: 270 Million Bodies in 1400 Years - What Every Kafir Must Know!

What you need to know about Islam that isn't taught in schools

Imagine That, Taxpayer Funding of the Ground Zero Mosque?

After reading Pamela Gellers column concerning the possible funding of the Ground Zero Mosque using New York Tax dollars, I posted this reply.

Nothings surprises me anymore since Imam Obama took control of the White Mosque. Sending Rauf and Daisy overseas at taxpayers expense. Michelle Obama spending time at a Mosque in Spain. Whens the last time Queen Michelle spent time in her own religions church? Or perhaps she has also converted to Islam since she can no longer listen to the Rev. Wright praising the perpetraitors of 9/11 and cheering to the crowds, about chickens coming home to roost.

Spending millions to repair Mosques in foreign countries. What about funding the repairs of Christian churches right here in America. Im sure that there are many Catholic and Protestant churches that could use some fixing up but under todays weak economy, can't fund the repairs.

Wait till New Yorkers hear about this Pamela. Talk about throwing gasoline on a fire. It wouldn't surprise me to know Bloomberg is behind the possible funding with tax dollars. That jackass said were all Muslims. Well Bloomberg best be speaking for himself, because most Americans and New Yorkers don't feel the same way. Bloombergs lips are turning brown from all that Muslim ass kissing he and Imam Obama have been doing.

Isn't it strange that Bloomberg is uppity for the Muslims, but I haven't heard a peep from him about shinning the lights on the empire state building in honor of Mother Teresa. But then Mother Teresa wasn't a Muslim. the whole thing sucks.

Life of a Potato Family


Well, a Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other, and finally they got married, and had a little sweet potato, which they Called 'Yam.' Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

When it was time, they told her about the facts of life. They warned her about going out and getting half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed, and get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and end up with a bunch of TaterTots. Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get her into the sack and make a 'Rotten Potato' out of her! But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a 'Couch Potato' either.

She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her Shoestring Cousins.

When she went off to Europe, Mr. and Mrs. Potato told Yam to watch out for the hard-boiled guys from Ireland, and the greasy guys from France called the French Fries.

And when she went out West, to watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get Scalloped.

Yam said she would stay on the straight and narrow and wouldn't associate with those high class Yukon Golds,
or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all the trucks that say, 'Frito Lay'.

Mr. and Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's Potato University ) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips.

But in spite of all they did for her, one-day Yam came home and announced she was going to marry Tom Brokaw.

Tom Brokaw??

Mr. and Mrs.Potato were very upset.

They told Yam she couldn't possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just.......

Are you ready for this?

Are you sure?




Here it is!

Z Street Getting Screw By IRS, Sues IRS in Return

Z Street, the pro-Israel group that was founded at the University of Pennsylvania to fight against J Street, is suing the IRS. The introduction to the complaint tells you about all you need to know:

From Irael Matzav Blog  http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2010/08/z-street-sues-irs.html

The plaintiff in this case, Z STREET, is a nonprofit organization devoted to educating the public about the facts relating to the Middle East, and that relate to the existence of Israel as a Jewish State, and Israel’s right to refuse to negotiate with, make concessions to, or appease terrorists. The case is brought because, through its corporate counsel, Z STREET was informed explicitly by an IRS Agent on July 19, 2010, that approval of Z STREET’s application for tax-exempt status has been at least delayed, and may be denied because of a special IRS policy in place regarding organizations in any way connected with Israel, and further that the applications of many such Israel-related organizations have been assigned to “a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization's activities contradict the Administration's public policies.” These statements by an IRS official that the IRS maintains special policies (hereinafter the “Israel Special Policy”) governing applications for tax-exempt status by organizations which deal with Israel, and which requires particularly intense scrutiny of such applications and an enhanced risk of denial if made by organizations which espouse or support positions inconsistent with the Obama administration’s Israel policies, constitute an explicit admission of the crudest form of viewpoint discrimination, and one which is both totally un-American and flatly unconstitutional under the First Amendment.

Z STREET brings this case seeking a Declaratory Judgment that the Israel Special Policy violates the First Amendment to the United States Constitution; and for injunctive relief barring application of the Israel Special Policy to Z STREET’s application for tax-exempt status or to similar applications by any other organization; and to compel full public disclosure regarding the origin, development, approval, substance and application of the Israel Special Policy.

Ben Smith of Politico reports that the IRS has refused comment on the case.

23 Nails Found in Body of Tortured Maid


Published: Aug 25, 2010 01:08 Updated: Aug 25, 2010 01:08

RIYADH: Doctors in Sri Lanka have found 23 nails in the body of a tortured housemaid who returned to Colombo from Riyadh, Sri Lankan Embassy sources told Arab News on Tuesday.


“We have received this complaint from the Foreign Ministry in Colombo, who said the maid has been allegedly tortured by her sponsor,” a senior diplomat from the Sri Lankan mission in Riyadh told Arab News. “We are looking for the sponsor. We were able to track down the Saudi recruitment agent in Riyadh and we will summon the sponsor to discuss this issue,” the official said.

Doctors at the Kamburipitya Base Hospital in the Matara district, 140 km from Colombo, said the nails had been hammered into the maid’s body. Dr. Kamal Weeratunge, who was treating the maid, claimed the nails had been heated up before they punctured her skin.

On Sri Lankan television channel Newsfirst Sirasa, the maid showed the marks where the nails had gone through. The maid, identified as 50-year-old Ariyawathie, said that there were too many people to serve in the house where she worked.

“I had to work continuously since I had to do the chores of all the occupants and when I wanted to take rest due to tiredness, they inserted the nail in my body as a punishment,” she said.

“I had to work from dawn to dusk. I hardly slept. They beat me and threatened to kill me and hide my body.” She added that she arranged her travel documents to return home on her own expense. “They were really devils with no mercy at all,” she said.

According to records at the Sri Lankan Embassy, the maid came to the Kingdom on March 25. The diplomat said that the sponsor had bypassed the mission and made his own arrangements to send the woman home. “We can only deal with cases that come up before the mission,” he said. However, he added that the mission would take action following the complaint submitted to the embassy from Colombo.

The maid had come to Saudi Arabia after being registered at the Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLBFE).

SLBFE chairman Kingsley Ranawake said that a formal inquiry would be held with the concerned maid and appropriate action taken.

Who says Slavery isn't still happening in Saudi Arabia?

Assyrian Genocide Monument Unveiled in Australia

Fairfield (AINA) -- A monument commemorating the genocide of 750,000 Assyrians in World War One was unveiled on Saturday, August 7. The genocide was begun on April 24, 1915 and lasted approximately three years. It was master-minded by Ottoman Turks and executed largely by Kurds, their accomplices and mercenaries. The genocide also claimed the lives of 1.5 million Armenians and 500,000 Greeks.

More than 2,000 Assyrians and Australians attended the dedication at Bonnyrigg Park. The monument was sponsored by the Assyrian Universal Alliance and officially approved by the Fairfield city council on December 15, 2009. It was designed by Assyrian artist Lewis Batros. Construction of the monument began three months ago.

The monument is dedicated to the Turkish genocide of Assyrians as well as the 1933 massacre of Assyrians at Simmele by Iraqi government forces, in which 3000 Assyrians were killed. The plaque on the monument reads:



May this remembrance be a blessing to the world by increasing awareness to fight the evils of genocide in a brotherly spirit and by initiating international awareness of the Assyrian nation's rights to existence among the nations of the world.



7TH AUGUST 2010/6760

The monument was strongly opposed by the Turkish community in Australia, who claimed the monument would "sew division" between the Assyrian and Turkish communities. This argument was repeatedly made despite the fact that there is no interaction between these communities and hence no division to sew. Assyrians are Christians and speak modern Assyrian (neo-Aramaic), while Turks are Muslims and speak Turkish.

U.S. Court Halts Obama Stem-Cell Research Order

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 23, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia has intervened to block regulations issued by the Obama administration expanding embryo-destructive research.

Pro-life researchers and Nightlight Christian Adoptions, a group that encourages adoption of frozen embryonic children, filed the suit last year. Judge Royce Lamberth had ruled in June that the group has standing to sue over the guidelines that the National Institutes of Health developed for taxpayer-funded research that would involve the destruction of living human embryos.

The newly-expanded research was made possible by an executive order signed by President Obama in March 2009.

The plaintiffs argue that the new guidelines clearly violate a provision in U.S. law (known as the Dickey-Wicker amendment) that prevents taxpayer monies from funding research in which embryos "are destroyed, discarded, or knowingly subjected to risk of injury or death."

In the opinion issued Monday, Lamberth ruled that the Dickey-Wicker language was unambiguous, contrary to the arguments of lawyers with the Department of Health and Human Services, and that the NIH guidelines violated the "plain language of the statute."

"ESC [embryonic stem-cell] research is clearly research in which an embryo is destroyed," wrote Lamberth. "To conduct ESC research, ESC must be derived from an embryo. The process of deriving ESCs from an embryo results in the destruction of the embryo. Thus, ESC research necessarily depends upon the destruction of a human embryo.
"Despite defendants' attempt to separate the derivation of ESCs from research on ESCs, the two cannot be separated."

Critics have pointed out that, aside from destroying tiny human lives, ESC research has resulted in virtually no therapeutic benefit and has been outstripped by breakthroughs in adult stem-cell research, which has yielded dozens of cures and benefits for previously untreatable illnesses.

Mosque Protest-Ground Zero-Andy Sullivan-August 22,2010-NYC tycoongambler

New York Construction Works Say Hell No! We Won't Build a Mosque Here on Ground Zero.

Sunday, August 22, 2010

Anti-'Ground Zero mosque' protesters descend on downtown Park51 site

Hundreds of opponents of the proposed Muslim and cultural center and mosque near the World Trade Center site rally in lower Manhattan.

Handschuh/NewsSome protesters were in favor of the Islamic center...

Smith/News... while others were against it being so near 'Ground Zero.' Take our PollZeroing in on subject

Is opposition to the building of a mosque near Ground Zero intolerant?

Yes, it's pure religious bigotry against Muslims.

No, you can be against because it dishonors victims of Sept. 11.

Maybe, but the sensitive thing to do is to move it further from the WTC site.

Mosque hysteria reached fevered pitch Sunday as angry protesters opposed to building an Islamic center near Ground Zero squared off with supporters of the project.

In mostly peaceful counter-demonstrations, hundreds braved the rain in Lower Manhattan to voice their position on the contentious project that has spiralled into a national political issue.

"It's very insensitive to the families," said retired firefighter Tim Brown who escaped the collapse of the Twin Towers. "This is not about religious freedom."

"All we are saying is don't build this mosque here at Ground Zero on our cemetery."

Supporters of the proposed mosque two blocks from the Trade Center site said blocking it would be a victory for terrorism.

"Thats total Bullshit, building the damn thing would mean victory for those who brought about the destruction and death on 9/11. Muslims build their mosques on sites they have conquered all through history."
 "These people against it need to open their eyes and see how much hate this is bringing," said 28-year-old tour guide Victor Hernandez. "The terrorists win when we don't allow people their freedoms."

Hey Victor, what freedoms did those who died on 9/11 have? Freedom to jump to their death but not much more.

The day began with hundreds of anti-mosque protesters roaring into Lower Manhattan on motorcycles. Within hours both sides had gathered en masse.

The two groups were kept apart in penned-in protest sites two blocks way from each other - about 200 gathered in support of the project and 1,000 against.

A heavy police presence stood in between.

The Park Place block where the proposed center would be built in a former Burlington Coat Factory store was closed off with police barricades.

Opponents chanted "No mosque, no way!" and carried signs reading, "9-11-01: Never Forget," as Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" blared over loudspeakers.

Supporters carried signs reading, "America! When did it become OK to be a bigot!" and screamed "Hallowed ground, that's a lie!" 

Hey Numnuts, try demonstrating in Iran or other Islamic countries. You could end up on the end of a rope.

One group brought a life-sized mock missile with a dummy terrorist draped over top holding a sign that read: "Obama, your middle-name is Hussain [sic], we understand. Bloomberg, what's your excuse."

Mayor Bloomberg has stood in support of the mosque project.

Bloomberg's a fool. Remember how he blamed Tea Party folks for the New York City bombing that lucky for him failed. Then Bloomberg said we can't blame Islam for one mans actions. Thats more BS.

Despite the distance between the sides, occasional sparring matches erupted as two crossed paths in between.

"The mosque shouldn't be here!" shouted Barry Bledsoe, 46, who drove from West Virginia with his 9-year-old son to attend the protest.

"We've got troops in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting for this!" a supporter shouted back.

Cops quickly separated the two.

"There is an un-Godly, unholy thing gonna go up two blocks away from this site. Absolutely not!" Bledsoe screamed as he walked away.

Later a scuffle broke out at the site of the pro-mosque protest a when a mosque opponent held up a sign that read, "I can draw Mohammed if you can build a mosque."

Rhetoric around the project has grown increasingly charged.

Opponents have accused the mosque's planners of anything from insensitivity to being terrorist sympathizers. Supporters say blocking the project would violate constitutional rights.

Gov. Paterson has attempted to broker a compromise offering the developers to swap the proposed site with state-owned land elsewhere.

Developers of the Park51 project said they were consulting with their stakeholders on how to proceed.

Yeah, Imam Feisal Rauf is over in the middle east working out funding for the mosque. We already know that the Danish have given some funds and you can bet the Saudi's will bankroll the rest.

"We don't want to create conflict," Daisy Khan said on ABC's "This Week." "We will meet and we do what is right for everyone."

Whats right Daisy if for you to take your stinking Sharia laws and head back to your tents in the dessert.
Her husband, Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf, the main proponent of the project, was traveling in the Middle East on a state department tour.

Rauf told a newspaper in Bahrain that constitutionally-protected freedoms in the U.S. reflect true Islamic values better in some Muslim countries.

Kenya's capital, Somali immigrant neighborhood is incubator for jihad

By Sudarsan Raghavan

Sunday, August 22, 2010

NAIROBI -- Behind the blue gates of his Islamic school in Nairobi's Eastleigh neighborhood, Ahmed Awil cannot escape his country's civil war.

Schools and mosques where extremist views are taught are reshaping this Somali immigrant community that for years has lived peacefully in the capital of this predominantly Christian country. Moderate imams now compete with hard-line preachers pushing a strict interpretation of Islam. Bookstores sell anti-Western literature. Residents speak fearfully of militant spies, and children like Ahmed are taught to praise al-Shabab, an al-Qaeda-linked militia, for waging jihad in Somalia against the U.S.-backed government.

"My teachers tell us al-Shabab is fighting for our religion and for our country," said Ahmed, a skinny 11-year-old who fled Somalia after al-Shabab fighters slaughtered his neighbor and tried to recruit him. "Sometimes they ask us if we would like to go there and fight."

Eastleigh, a run-down enclave where tens of thousands of Somalis live, has become an incubator for Islamic extremism, Kenyan officials and community leaders say. It has also emerged as a micro-battlefield in the war on terrorism, attracting American funds.

"What most worries me is that this extremist ideology will continue to grow," said Dualle Abdi Malik, the director of Fathu Rahman, a moderate Islamic school. "We have to confront it before it is too late."

Somali immigrant communities across the Horn of Africa and Yemen have come under greater scrutiny since twin bombings last month targeted World Cup soccer fans in the Ugandan capital of Kampala. Al-Shabab asserted responsibility for the attacks, its first major international operation since it rose to power several years ago in Somalia.

Members of al-Shabab, which in Arabic means "The Youth," and other Somali militants freely travel to Nairobi to raise funds, recruit and treat wounded fighters, according to U.N. and Kenyan security officials. Somali-American jihadists have met contacts in Eastleigh before heading to Somalia to fight with al-Shabab.

"Eastleigh is a copy of Mogadishu," said Mohamed Omar Dalha, Somalia's social affairs minister, referring to the Somali capital. "Everything that happens in Mogadishu happens in Eastleigh, except the fighting."

Fertile ground for radicals

At the al-Huda Islamic bookshop, a closet-sized stall nestled near one of Eastleigh's radical mosques, several youths browsed the fare on a recent day. Koranic tomes pack the shelves. Recordings of lectures and debates that glorify the neighborhood's radical Somali preachers are sold openly.

"Our religion calls on us to kill everyone who does not believe in Allah and his Prophet Muhammed deeply," Abdulrahman Abdullahi, a black-clad imam, declares in one DVD.

Al-Shabab has long threatened to attack Kenya, which has been targeted by extremists over the years. In 1998, al-Qaeda operatives bombed the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and in Tanzania; in 2002, an Israeli-owned hotel in Mombasa was bombed. Earlier this year, protests erupted in downtown Nairobi over the arrest of a radical Islamic preacher from Jamaica.

Eastleigh, community leaders say, is an ideal breeding ground for radicalism. The neighborhood is poor and isolated; few Kenyans enter it. Local authorities have ignored it: Roads are unpaved, muddy and covered with trash. The smell of raw sewage wafts across the terrain.

Planet Iran Exclusive: Iranian regime’s sanctioned brothels at Imam Reza’s shrine in Mash’had

What next, Perhaps Bed & Breakfast.

Temporary Marriages for as little as 5 hours and a small fee, offered to those who attend Imam Reza’s shrine in Mash’had

From Planet Iran, http://planet-iran.com/index.php/news/19414#comment-15898

8/18, 2010

The following is a direct translation of the below Persian document:

Bismellah al rahman a rahim

Temporary Marriage (Marriage is among the traditions of the Prophet Mohammad)

In order to elevate the spiritual atmosphere, create proper psychological conditions and tranquility of mind, the Province of the Quds’eh-Razavi of Khorassan has created centers for temporary marriage (just next door to the shrine) for those brothers who are on pilgrimage to the shrine of our eighth Imam, Imam Reza, and who are far away from their spouses.

To that end, we call on all our sisters who are virgins, who are between the ages of 12 and 35 to cooperate with us. Each of our sisters who signs up will be bound by a two year contract with the province of the Quds’eh-Razavi of Khorassan and will be required to spend at least 25 days of each month temporarily married to those brothers who are on pilgrimage. The period of the contract will be considered as a part of the employment experience of the applicant. The period of each temporary marriage can be anywhere between 5 hours to 10 days. The prices are as follows:

■5 hour temporary marriage – 50,000 Tomans ($50 US)

■One day temporary marriage – 75,000 Tomans ($75 US)

■Two day temporary marriage – 100,000 Tomans ($100 US)

■Three day temporary marriage – 150,000 Tomans ($150 US)

■Between 4 and 10 day temporary marriage – 300,000 Tomans ($300 US)

Our sisters who are virgins will receive a bonus of 100,000 Tomans ($100 US) for the removal of their hymen .

After the expiration of the two year contract, should our sisters still be under 35 years of age and should they be so inclined, they can be added to the waiting list of those who are seeking long-term temporary marriage. The employed sisters are obligated to donate 5% of their earnings to the Shrine of Imam Reza. We ask that all the sisters who are interested in applying, to furnish two full-length photographs (fully hijabed and properly veiled), their academic diplomas, proof of their virginity and a certificate of good physical and psychological health which they can obtain through the health and human services of the township of their residence. Please forward all compiled material and send to the below address by the 31st of the month of Ordibehesht, 1389 (May 21st, 2010).

Attention: For sisters who are below 14 years of age, a written consent from their fathers or male guardian is required.

Address: Mash’had, Shrine of Imam Reza, Shaheed Navab-Safavi, Kossar passage, Bureau of Temporary Marriages

or call Haji Mahmood Momtaz : 98/511/222-5790

Kosovo Tragedy, Where are all the Churches?

Why its important to look past Ground Zero to see What Islam has done to other countries they have dominated.

Interfax, reports on the many Churches that have been destroyed by the Albanian extremist. http://www.interfax-religion.com/kosovo/

In early 2001 the world was alarmed by reports that the Afghani Talibs destroyed the gigantic statures of Buddha, unique monuments of ancient culture. At that time the topic of prostrate sculptures firmed up in the headlines of major newspapers and news reports from leading TV networks. Almost unnoticed against this background was another tragedy, which had begun a little earlier and continues to this day, namely, the destruction of monasteries and churches in Kosovo.

It did not happen in a remote country where the Talibs exercised complete sway, it, the crucifixion of Kosovo, was taking place in the very center of Europe, before the very eyes of peacemakers from the most developed countries. The Albanian extremists were finishing now what they had no time to complete during World War II. According to the data from the Serbian Orthodox Church, nearly 150 churches and monasteries have been destroyed for the last five years in Kosovo and Metochia, the cradle of Serbian Orthodoxy.

It was not just cultural monuments or sacred things that were destroyed. What was profaned was the very soul of a nation with rich traditions and an outstanding fate, a nation which helped to liberate Europe from fascism 60 years ago, sacrificing to the Victory about a million of its people.

According to many experts, Kosovo today has been turned into a breeding-ground of terrorism for the whole of Europe, a transfer point for drug dealers. Only a few surviving churches and the ruins of the churches which had no chance to survive the new barbaric times stand as tacit reminders of the past of that land.

The Religion portal, together with the Foundation of St. Andrew the First-Called, publishes a gallery of Kosovo churches as they were before the destruction and as they are now. Perhaps these pictures, more eloquently than any words, relate the tragedy of one of the largest European nations, which, strangely, was bypassed by world news reports.

For the following churches and before and after photos, read here:

1. THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY VIRGIN, Musutiste near Suva Reka

Who Made Decision to Not Allow Building of Greek Church Destroyed on 9/11?

August 18, 2010

Decision Not to Rebuild Church Destroyed on 9/11 Surprises Greek Orthodox Leaders

Shown here is the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church near the World Trade Center, before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. (Herman Krieger/Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America)

Greek Orthodox leaders trying to rebuild the only church destroyed in the Sept. 11 terror attacks expressed shock this week after learning, via Fox News, that government officials had killed a deal to relocate the church.

The St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, once a tiny, four-story building in the shadows of lower Manhattan, was destroyed in 2001 by one of the falling World Trade Center towers. Nobody from the church was hurt in the attack, but the congregation has, for the past eight years, been trying to rebuild its house of worship.

Though talks between the church and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey stalled last year, church leaders say they've been trying to kick-start discussions ever since. But amid debate over whether a proposed Islamic community center should go forward near Ground Zero, government officials threw cold water on the prospect of any deal with the church -- telling Fox News the deal is off the table.

Let me get this straight, the church was destroyed by falling WTC tower but won't be rebuilt because of the controversy over the Ground Zero Mosque? WTF kind of reasoning is that? Those weren't Greeks who flew planes into the WTC Towers.

This is getting beyond ridiculous, this is feckin outrageous!

White House Party Crashers Just Undocumented Workers

Will the Real Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf Please Stand Up.

From Izrael Matzov Blog

You knew something like this would come out eventually

It just had to be. You knew (or should have known) that if people went digging long enough and hard enough, they would discover the smoking gun that proves that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the 'moderate' imam trying to build a victory mosque at Ground Zero, isn't such a moderate after all. And you were right.

On Friday morning's Bill Bennett show, Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project announced that he has 13 hours of audio tape of Imam Rauf that has the 'moderate' imam:

Defending Wahhabism - a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia;

Calling for the elimination of the State of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State; and
Defending Osama Bin Laden's violence

I'm sure you're all shocked.

You can listen to the show here http://www.billbennett.com/michaelmedved/player.aspx?g=aHR0cDovL21lZGlhLnRvd25oYWxsLmNvbS90b3duaGFsbC9iZW5uZXR0L1N0ZXZlRW1lcnNvbjIubXAz

 (Hat Tip: Atlas Shrugs). It runs about half an hour.

Don't worry, the Liberal Media will do its best to keep Raufs words out of their press.

OIC: Petraeus Guilty of Islamophobia

by Nathaniel Sugarman • Aug 20, 2010 at 12:52 pm


The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) labeled Gen. David Petreaus's counter-insurgency manual a "manifestation of Islamophobia" in their latest bulletin. The bulletin includes text from an article titled "Petraeus wrote anti-Islamic manual" published by the Iranian news organization, PressTV. Presumably, the document is "Islamophobic" because, according to the article, it "details an alleged link between Muslim groups and terrorists" and utilizes terms such as "Islamic insurgents" and "Islamic extremists." Perhaps also a "manifestation of Islamophobia" from the OIC's perspective is Petraeus's flouting of the White House policy to ban the word "Islam" in describing America's enemies.

The OIC, an international body of 57-Islamic member states, releases monthly bulletins that supposedly compile instances of anti-Islamic bigotry. In reality, however, the bulletins contain few genuine cases of prejudice. The July report, for example, is littered with instances, which, far from being "manifestations of Islamophobia," are simply examples of non-neutral commentary concerning Islam. Drawing attention to honor killings or writing that many of America's enemies are inspired by Islam may not be neutral and may cause some to cringe, but these statements are hardly Islamophobic. And often overlooked is the unfortunate side effect of cheapening real cases of hate by muddling these Islamophobia bulletins with issues like the Petraeus manual, which have nothing to do with bigotry.

The OIC also uses protests against fundamentalism as filler in their July Islamophobia bulletin. They endorse blanket condemnations of all objections to building the Cordoba House at ground zero (now curiously renamed Park51), and similarly endorse denouncing other mosque protests. Scandals that tie mosques to foreign funding and even to terrorism do not seem to merit comment or reference from the OIC—only that something Islamic is being protested and that the protest must therefore be Islamophobic is reported.

Also included in the OIC's July report are at least two examples of "Islamophobia" that are at best of questionable veracity. One is a story trumpeting the arrests of English Defence League (EDL) members for conspiracy to bomb a mosque, despite all of them subsequently being released without charge. The bulletin also publicizes the BBC story concerning two veiled women who accused a London bus driver of bigotry. The BBC published a follow up when video footage revealed that the women were not telling the whole truth. Not surprisingly, the OIC does not issue clarifications as speedily or as promiscuously as they issue charges of Islamophobia.

It is clear that there are dueling policies here as to how to address the religious motivations of America's enemies. The Petraeus policy seems to be to recognize that not all Muslims are jihadists, but that some of America's enemies are both jihadists and Muslims. By contrast, the policy of the OIC and the White House is apparently to deny that religion or jihadism play any role in the Afghan insurgency and to ban or condemn as Islamophobic any words or assertions that contradict this preconceived and false premise.

I guess I'm guilty of Islamophobia. I oppose Shariah Law. I oppose the stoning of Women, I oppose the marriage of a 9 year old girl to a 60 year old fart. I oppose Honor killings. I oppose all the evils that come with Islam.

How to Start a Fight

After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security.

The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's License to verify my age.
I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home.
I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.
The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'.
So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.
She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me' and she
processed my Social Security application..
When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office...

She said, 'You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability, too.'
And then the fight started...

The Separation of Islamophilia From State

The American Spectator puts a good spin on the recent White Mosque Ramadan dinner Imam Obama held for his Muslims guest recently .


By George Neumayr on 8.19.10 @ 6:09AM

By modern secularist standards, Barack Obama's boosterism for Islam violates the "separation between Church and state." Had George W. Bush held a rosary and modest fish dinner at the White House to mark the beginning of Lent, the ACLU left would have freaked out. But these same secularists didn't mind Barack's "Iftar dinner" last Friday night.

That is, until he wimped out on his endorsement of the Ground Zero mosque. Now his dinner looks to them more like the production of Ishtar, as finger-to-the-wind Dems cravenly scramble for cover. The search is on for a "compromise." Perhaps the self-styled Solomonic Obama can convince the mosque planners to transfer their property rights to NASA. Administrator Charles Bolden could then turn the land into a satellite office for contractors who pursue the space agency's "perhaps foremost" mission (as explained to him by Obama): "to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science…and math and engineering."

The moment one thinks this presidency has hit the bottom of grim parody it finds a new one. It is hard to keep track of them at this point, but any list of the White House's greatest Islamophilic hits would have to include: wanting a civilian jury trial for the 9/11 planners, refusing to identify radical Islam as a terrorist motive, endorsing the concept of jihad, fretting over the loss of "diversity" after the Fort Hood shooting, and vacationing through the fallout of an aborted Christmas day bombing over Detroit.

The White House's ideologically willful self-delusion about radical Islam is staggering. Here, for example, is its self-reporting at whitehouse.gov about the Ramadan dinner: "Last night, President Obama continued the White House tradition of hosting an Iftar -- the meal that breaks the day of fasting --celebrating Ramadan in the State Dining Room." Continued a tradition? Exactly which White House tradition is that?

The answer: Obama was referring not to a White House "tradition" but to one distant event that he carefully left vague: Thomas Jefferson's war negotiations with Tunisian envoy Sidi Soliman Mellimelli.

Jefferson, desperate to end the Barbary war with Islamic pirates, invited Mellimelli to Washington for negotiations. According to Gaye Wilson, the visit put Jefferson and his staff on the spot: James Madison, then the Secretary of State, had to field Mellimelli's request for "concubines." Jefferson told shocked colleagues to calm down; after all, peace with the Barbary pirates required passing "unnoticed the irregular conduct of their ministers." Mellimelli, in his own way, was grateful. After hearing some gossip about the wan mood of the childless Madisons, he "flung his 'magical' cloak around Dolley Madison and murmured an incantation that promised she would bear a male child. His conjuring, however, did not work."

The war negotiations happened to coincide with Ramadan. Consequently, a scheduled dinner at the White House had to be moved back from "half after three" to "precisely at sunset" in order for Mellimelli to show up.

While it is true that the basically agnostic Jefferson was an arrogant secularist in embryo (the type on display now who dislikes all religions save Islam), he was under no illusions about jihadists. The Obama White House makes references to the "Koran" Jefferson owned, as if he had purchased it for religious edification. The truth is that he purchased it for self-protection: he wanted to understand the attitudes and war tactics of the Barbary pirates.

The cocky frat-boy "Republican" on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough, a hopelessly smug lightweight who tries to weigh in on the "big issues" of the day when not playing early-morning grabass with his equally shallow but self-important guests, has said repeatedly that the Founding Fathers wrote the First Amendment to protect projects like the Ground Zero mosque. No, they didn't. "Morning Joe" is mistaking Thurgood Marshall's "living" Constitution for theirs.

While the Founding Fathers certainly didn't want anyone coerced in matters of faith, they wrote it to protect the states from a future federal government that might swoop down and crush the public religious life of majorities in those states. (And, by the way, let's cut the PC crap about Jefferson as the father of the First Amendment; he wasn't even at the Constitutional Convention. He was in France as an ambassador, gazing with approval at budding French Revolutionaries.) For many decades after the Constitution was enacted several states still had religious litmus tests for public office and sent tax dollars directly to the churches of their choice.

In other words, it is the very First Amendment that Scarborough mangles which permits New Yorkers to block the construction of a mosque. The First Amendment was designed to protect the majority from the tyranny of a religious minority favored by the federal government. What radical Islam's useful idiots in the White House and the press call "religious freedom," the founders would have called insanely dumb religious relativism and self-hating stupidity.

As usual, the American Spectator does an omens job at correcting the liberal mistakes.

Never Forget 9/11 Jumpers From Hell. Warning, Graphic Images

Found this video on the Bare Naked Islam site,


If you can watch this without feeling some pain, your not an American.

It is estimated that at least 200 people jumped to their deaths, far more than can be seen in the photographs taken that morning. The jumping started shortly after the first jet hit at 8:46 a.m. People jumped continuously during the 102 minutes that the north tower stood.

It took just 10 seconds to fall but it wasn’t fast enough for the victims to lose consciousness before they hit the ground.

Never forget, this attack was done in the name of Islam.

3,000 facing layoffs? Sen. Patty Murray's math doesn't add up

That was a close one. With the new school year approaching and 3,000 Washington state teachers facing layoffs, Congress came through with money to save their jobs. As U.S. Sen. Patty Murray put it on the floor of the Senate last week: “That means 3,000 teachers in Washington state who are right now in limbo, who are spending this summer not knowing if they’ll return to a classroom or a pink slip in the fall.” Problem is, there aren’t 3,000 teachers in Washington state facing layoffs. Not even close.

That was a close one.

With the new school year approaching and 3,000 Washington state teachers facing layoffs, Congress came through with money to save their jobs.

As U.S. Sen. Patty Murray put it on the floor of the Senate last week: “That means 3,000 teachers in Washington state who are right now in limbo, who are spending this summer not knowing if they’ll return to a classroom or a pink slip in the fall.”

Problem is, there aren’t 3,000 teachers in Washington state facing layoffs. Not even close.

A survey of districts conducted by the state Professional Educators Standards Board found that just 445 teachers statewide received reduction-in-force letters last spring.

Since then, many, if not most, have been recalled for the approaching school year. In Sumner, for example, 16 RIF letters were sent out. All but one have been rescinded.

This is a normal pattern. State law and union contracts obligate school districts to let teachers know by mid-May if they might be laid off or have their hours reduced. Many districts err on the high side but end up reducing the layoffs or not having to lay off staff at all.

A University of Washington study found that 91 percent of the 2,000-plus teachers who received RIF letters in 2009 were on the job once school began in September.

So where did Murray come up with 3,000 threatened jobs? Congressional math, it appears. Since Washingtonians are a bit more than 2 percent of the nation’s population, we’ll get a bit more than 2 percent of the $10 billion appropriated for teacher jobs.

Divide the average pay and benefits for a teacher into the $206 million and you get 3,300 jobs. From that, Murray extrapolates to claim thousands of threatened layoffs.

To its credit, the Department of Education says the money will “support” rather than “save” jobs. But Secretary Arne Duncan used breathless terms in a news conference Tuesday, calling the jobs fund a “lifeline” for teachers “who would otherwise be laid off.”

This fund would have been a big help in March. Less so in October. By now, districts have already approved budgets and made staffing decisions.

When she first heard about the education jobs money, Gov. Chris Gregoire was cautious, noting that the state’s schools are somewhat better off than other states and wanting to see what rules come with the money.

(She was thrilled with Washington’s share of $16 billion in Medicaid reimbursement money, however. That money will avert more budget cuts and will likely mean more to schools than the teacher jobs money because education might have been target of some of the cuts).

Gregoire, however, has had to ratchet up her enthusiasm since fellow Democrat Murray began using the jobs money to spark her re-election campaign.

Districts can spend the money to retain staff, rehire those laid off or hire new teachers. But if they don’t have laid-off teachers to rehire, what will districts do with the cash? Districts might be reluctant to add staff with one-year money. They already face the budget drop off when money from the federal stimulus ends with the 2011-12 school year.

University Place Superintendent Patti Banks said her district had no layoffs, although it has reduced staff and spending in the face of reduced revenue. It could hire some teachers to make up for past reductions but that might set it up for layoffs next spring.

“It’s just not worth it,” she said.

Banks said the smart move might be to save the new money. While Duncan wants it spent this school year, the department grudgingly allows districts to spend it next year instead when it might help cushion the blow of the end of stimulus money.

“If you can bank it, bank it,” Banks said. “That would be the logical thing to do.”

So, despite the campaign rhetoric, the money is unlikely to have much immediate impact on Washington state schools and school children.

Muscovites Concerned About Amplified Muslim Prayers

From Eng Pravda: http://english.pravda.ru/society/stories/16-08-2010/114603-muslim_holidays-0

Muscovites Complaining about having to listen to Muslims praying out loud.

In the fall of 2010, three mass Muslim holidays will be held in Moscow: Cultural and charitable action, Ramadan Tent, Uraza-Fitr (9 September) and Eid al-Fitr (16 November). The corresponding decree was signed by Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov, GZT.Ru reported.

 In this regard, the Moscow city government intends to ask the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Moscow City Broadcasting Network” to provide installation of sound amplifiers on cars to broadcast festive prayers. According to the deputy mayor of Moscow Sergey Baidakov responsible for monitoring the execution of this order, everything will be strictly within the law, and will not interfere with the life of Muscovites.

"Moscow is one of the largest religious centers in the country, and freedom of conscience is the fundamental principle of the Russian Constitution,” the official said. “And it is only natural that worshipers have the right to satisfy their spiritual needs. In addition, a significant number of worshipers come to these holidays. For example, last year's collective prayers during the Uraza-Fitr holiday gathered nearly 50 thousand people, and not everyone could hear the spiritual leader of Muslims. Therefore, we decided to ask Moscow Broadcasting network for help. Sound enhancement will occur exclusively during the day and only during the broadcast holiday prayers in the Moscow Cathedral Mosque. So Muscovites will not be inconvenienced."

Russia Today: Ramadan kicks off amid rise in Islamophobia

This document itself specifies three locations of amplification systems: Central, Western and North-East administrative districts. This means that amplification of prayers will be conducted for at least three mosques. However, two of them mentioned in the decree found it difficult to say whether public address system was used before and how it will be used now.

This news has provoked heated debate. “Mr. Luzhkov, apparently, is very far from the people and the speakers! I do not like it when the mullah yells across Moscow and Russia in a language other than Russian!” say comments on the website of GZT.Ru. Members also wondered why Christians have to listen to Muslim prayers. “I think it would be better if those who came to live in our country studied ORTHODOXY in schools!” a reader commented.

On 27 and 28 November of last year, during the holiday of Kurban Bayram, Moscow residents witnessed mass slaughter of sacrificial animals. Stormy negative reaction to this event caused the mayor's office to announce the development of the so-called “Code of a Muscovite,” a peculiar set of rules for those arriving to the capital.

In particular, migrants are not recommended to cut sheep in the yards and grill kebabs on their balconies. They also should not walk around the city wearing national attire and speak their native language.

Officials stressed that the “Code of a Muscovite” would not be binding, and does not violate human rights. But human rights groups and representatives of many Diasporas felt that the initiative was dangerous and insulting, and its authors were accused of chauvinism and racism.

Orthodox priests accepted the idea positively. Chairman of Moscow Ossetian communities Valery Kabolov also considers the “Code of a Muscovite” an important and even necessary document. He thinks that people have the right to wear national attire when it does not look like a challenge to the public order, and speak their language when surrounded by those who understand it.

Journalists and bloggers, in turn, began competing in wit regarding things to be included in the set of rules. For example, the “alternative” Code of a Muscovite proposed by journalist Tatiana Malkina cynically derides typical features of the capital residents that include indifference to other people's problems, aggression, and incivility.

And we here in America are asked to be tolerant. How long till the loud speakers are blasting away in your neighborhood?

Tulsa shelter helps abused Muslim women

She was pencil-thin and so weak from mental and physical abuse, she needed help getting up stairs.

Her husband kept her under video surveillance 24 hours a day, a virtual prisoner in her own home, and once held a knife to her throat.

This Jordanian woman found refuge in the Surayya Anne Foundation home, Tulsa's only Muslim women's shelter. She is now separated from her husband, who remains in Tulsa, and is back with her family in Jordan.

Since it opened in May 2009, the modest, three-bedroom, two-bath apartment in south Tulsa has housed 15 women, most of them Muslims, and their 10 children, some for a few days, others for a few months.

Some sought shelter because they were being abused by their husbands. Most were single mothers out of work who were evicted from their apartments. One was just released from prison and needed a place to live while she adjusted to life on the outside.
Volunteers from the Tulsa Muslim community support the women by taking them shopping or to doctors appointments, preparing food or providing baby-sitting. Rent, utilities and food are provided.

"We don't want a need to not be met," said Melek Oyludag, executive director and co-founder of the shelter.

"If we don't have the resources, we go find them." She said the shelter works closely with other social services agencies to provide needed services.

The Surayya Anne Foundation was named for a Turkish woman who established a network of women's shelters in Turkey.
From 2005 until 2007, Oyludag lived in Turkey, where she met that woman, and was inspired to do something similar in the United States.

"She built a phenomenal program," she said.

Oyludag said she and others who work with the women in the shelter are in a unique position to help them
because they understand the differences between Islamic and Western cultures.
"We know how to be sensitive to these taboo areas," she said. "Some of these women come from a culture that doesn't talk about" domestic violence.

She said the shelter is a better place for Muslim women, because so many Christian-based shelters require church attendance or frown on Islam.

"We're different," she said. "We get to know them. It's like we're helping a family member."

And the shelter is more conducive to Islamic prayer.
Tonie is in the shelter with her son because of her ongoing health problems.

"It's like being back in a two-parent family," she said, because two mothers help each other with the children, share chores and cook and eat together as one family.

Mary Al-Khaldi is house mother for the women. She lives in a nearby apartment and is available day and night to assist them. She also enforces a curfew, granting exceptions for such things as outside work and Ramadan evening prayers.

"It's great to be able to assist these ladies," she said.

Al-Khaldi said she was raised in a Pentecostal home in Oklahoma and converted to Islam 25 years ago. Her older brother abused her mother and was killed by her younger brother.

She married an Iraqi she described as a radical Muslim. "It took me 10 years to figure that out," she said.

"When he struck me when I was with child, I left him, but I didn't leave Islam."

Board member Allison Moore said women in the shelter are required to work or go to school, unless they have just had a baby, and to set aside money in a savings account to help them get back on their feet when they leave the shelter.

She said the foundation is raising money to buy a four- to six-unit apartment complex that will enable it to expand its services to families in need, including husbands.

The current shelter operates on a $46,000 annual budget, most of it from the Tulsa Muslim community.
