Time for Republican voters to stop whining over the so-called RINO (Republicans In Name Only) in congress when in fact it is we, Republican voters, who have failed our congressional leadership over and over again. How can we expect the republican leadership to stand up strong to the liberal agenda, media abuse, and entrapment, when we the voters, who should be their back bone, do not show up to vote in decisive election years.
Some republican voters and activists seem unable to not get off their high horses, when in the 2012 election, they refused to elect one of the most decent and competent Americans running for president, Mit Romney. Their stubborn reasoning was “I would not vote for a Mormon”, or “he is not conservative enough.” Thus Barak Obama and Harry Reid, were both re-elected.
Some republican voters would rather shoot themselves in the foot than realize that politics is a game of compromise and strategy. Even after the great disappointment with the re-election of Obama, many continue to complain about the party leadership and how Boener, McConnel and Graham, are not pushing a more conservative agenda. Few realize and verbalize the fact that when we failed to elect Romney and kept the senate in the hands of democrats, we have sucked the power out of republican leadership.
Not only are they not getting the support they need to push the conservative agenda, but also they must survive the cut throat environment in Washington D.C. where, as is often said, a ham sandwich can be indicted.
The brazen violations by the IRS and Department of Justice against conservatives and tea party activists does not go unnoticed by politicians who could be dragged through the mud by the democratic party machinery and the one sided media. Just ask Sarah Palin, Michelle Backman, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, Tom DeLay, etc.
And now many republicans, including those who were reluctant to vote for Romney, are singing the same tune before the coming elections: “we are fed up with the republican party” or “I will change to independent.” Such people are harming the conservative cause that they claim they love, more than any liberal action. Such republicans have a misguided, punitive attitude and instead of voting wisely, they would rather throw the baby with the bath water. They spread defeatist propaganda among other less informed republicans, which could cause a split in republican ranks that could bring us a repeat of the Ross Perot fiasco that contributed to the election of Bill Clinton. But this time, it could be Hillary.
Republican and independent voters must wise up this time and understand what is at stake with the rise of Islamic State while America is under the most incompetent and paralyzed presidency in its history. If we shoot ourselves in the foot again, we have no one to blame but ourselves and we might not be able to stand up on our feet once again.
Democrats are good at closing ranks and keeping their representatives in power, even those who are embarrassingly incompetent, such as Nancy Palosi, Harry Reid etc.
No democrat in power today can hold a candle to the many great republicans we have in office today; governor Scott Walker, Congressman Paul Ryan, Senator Marco Rubio, governor Rick Perry, Senator Rand Paul, governor John Kasich, governor Jan Brewer and former governor Jeb Bush.
The next republican president of the US will hopefully undo the damage Obama has done to this nation both internally and externally. But if Republicans don’t show up in massive numbers to vote then we should not complain if Hillary takes the mantle from Obama. In that case, it is not the RINO republicans’ fault, but the RINOs would be us.

It has been 13 years since 9/11 and the West is still reluctant to link the non-ending parade of jihad groups with Islam. The West is also in denial about the similarities all radical Islamic groups share. It is important for the West to realize that there is a natural division of labor between the different terror groups. Some groups specialize in terror against non-Muslims and Western governments while others specialize in terrorizing Arab governments that refused to follow Sharia. But the truly sophisticated groups are those who reside in the West, calling themselves ‘moderate’ while at the same time defending and controlling the direction of Islamist goals through advocacy, diplomacy, negotiation and PR.
All of the above types of Islamist groups work together in perfect harmony like an orchestra that sings to the tune of “Allahu Akbar.” And when Islamic terrorism and beheadings anger the world and turn public opinion against Islam, that orchestra starts playing a different tune to confuse and prevent the world from uncovering their coordinated handy work. While one group proudly takes credit for the terror, another publicly denounces it. But most groups, while enjoying the power and attention the terrorists have bestowed on them, stand by with a look of victimhood saying: “I am a victim too because you condemn me and my peaceful religion when I did not do anything. That is not Islam and you are an Islamophobe.”
The West was told the MB and Fatah were now the moderate and humanitarian face of Islam that could be counted on and that could run Islamic government. Islam will present itself as working with the rest of the world only for the sake of establishing the Kalifate. The West has been only too happy to welcome the new face of the old terror groups to the camp of moderation. But the new face of evil after the MB became Al-Qaeda.Not only is there division of labor amongst Islamist groups, but these groups also often change roles, tactics and appearances — after birthing other more radical terror groups to do the dirty work of terror. Because the West and some Arab governments refuse to deal with terror organizations, these organizations play a game of presenting a face of rehabilitation and moderation, while delegating the terror and assassinations to newer groups. Old guard terror groups like the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and Fatah were able to change color and they assumed a new, but only cosmetic, appearance of moderation, but not before birthing the more violent Al-Qaeda and Hamas.
When the MB won the Egyptian elections, Islamists believed the Kalifate could be achieved through elections, avoiding the usual violent jihad. But when Egyptians realized they had made a mistake by electing the MB and 35,000,000 Egyptians revolted against Islamist rule, the dreams of a Kalifate through peaceful elections were defeated. The only solution for Muslims to achieve their Kalifate is the old fashioned way of 7th century Islam: pure violence, savagery and terror; thus the rise of the newest Islamist terror group, ISIS, while the MB takes a back seat.
When Al-Qaeda’s reputation tanked after 9/11, even inside the Middle East, the terror jihadists were forced into working under a new name — same goals, but with a more ferocious appetite for terror and torture. After the defeat of the budding Islamist State through elections in Egypt in 2013, the restrained beast of public beheadings hidden in the Islamic genie bottle finally exploded for the world to see in the form of ISIS; an organization that declared itself as the true long-awaited Islamic State. Force became the only choice. Coincidentally, this follows the example of Mohammed who tried to peacefully Islamize Mecca for 13 years but failed and could only Islamize Arabia by force, terror and the sword when he became a warrior in Medina.
ISIS rushed to declare itself as the Islamic State even before finishing the job of conquering all of Iraq and Syria. It was flaunting its savagery to the world in the hope of giving the message to reluctant Arab countries that they will be next. The plan is very similar to what Mohammed and his followers did in the 7thcentury: conquer Arabia quickly by force so they could move to more important goals of taking over the outside world, now the West and Israel. By doing that they are confirming to Muslims around the world that terror works and that their prophet Mohammed was correct when he said: “I have been victorious through terror.”
Bottom line: What legitimate Islamic organizations must adhere to is obeying Islamic commandments to conquer the world for Islam, defeat and humiliate non-Muslim nations and establish the Kalifate — to be ruled by sharia. That is the plan. It is not the opinion of the writer of this article, but it is the basic objective of Islamic law books, scriptures and preaching, which explicitly define jihad as a war with non-Muslims to establish the religion of Islam. To facilitate this mission, Islamic law freed Muslims from any restrictions on their behavior; they can wage offensive wars, kill, terrorize, behead, lie, deceive, humiliate, slander, use corporal punishment on women and children, and sacrifice the well being of the family, all for the purpose of the empowerment of Islam.
But instead of properly facing the 21 Century Islamic challenge, the West has chosen denial. Obama is being criticized for resorting to golf in a time of trouble, but that is perhaps his only outlet when he feels paralyzed, because what he believed and advocated Islam to be and what it is turned out to be polar opposites.
Also, instead of facing the incompetence and many obvious weaknesses of Islamic terror groups, the West has chosen to appease an enemy that only respects power. Thus, the Obama administration decided to be more concerned with appearances and saying instead of doing the right thing. For example, Obama likes to correct Americans on the proper pronunciation of Arabic names and expressions such as Pakistan and ISIL instead of ISIS, etc. But when the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria was declared the West was too embarrassed to call it what it called itself, the Islamic State, and found the English abbreviation ISIS more appropriate than the Arabic name that linked the new terrorist state to Islam.
Obama insists on presenting himself as more of an expert on Islam than the founders of ISIS when he stated, “ISIL speaks for no religion.” It is not appropriate for the US government or media to define what is or what is not Islam to Muslims who are reading from their books statements that command them to kill infidels. All we should do is take them for their word.I was recently asked by visitors from Egypt, “What is ISIS?” My answer was, it is the preferred name the US administration and media use to refer to the newly declared Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Their response was, “Why? In Arabic they call themselves ‘The Islamic State?’” I told them it is a long story, but the West does not want to offend Muslims who believe that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism, tyranny and hatred.
Both the US government and media have decided, long before Obama, that it would be the wise thing to do to keep US citizens uninformed about the true goals of Islam. The goal of this policy was partially to convince Islamic terror groups to leave the West alone and perhaps in the long run Islam will reform on its own one day. But unfortunately history was not on the side of this theory. Appeasement did not work for Coptic Christians in Egypt nor for Zoroastrians in Persia when in the 7th century the two ancient civilizations fell to the Arab Islamic invasion in the same year. Both Egypt and Persia tried to appease but failed to win hearts and minds of the Muslim invaders who used the most barbaric forms of terror and tyranny to Islamize and Arabize both civilizations. Both Egypt and Persia never saw their glory days again and today they are incapable of ruling themselves without the usual Sharia-enforced oppression and tyranny.
What everyone misses here is the right of the American people to know the full truth about their new enemy directly and honestly from their politicians and media. By caring about the feelings of Muslims more than American citizens’ right to the truth, and without naming Islam by name, the US government and media will usher America into a dark phase marking the beginning of tyranny and the end of liberty.

With every news of another death, Israeli or Palestinian, my very heart bleeds. I do not believe or hope in my heart of any lasting peace in Middle East, because my optimism continuously marred by false "truths" of Islamic Sharia lovers, who are openly opposed to Israel's very existence, constantly chanting, "Death to the Jews;" what if such threats were aimed at their families? The horrors of this dispute and constant war has unleashed upon the people of the region are farcical and tragic, beyond words.
In my own small way, I am trying to shed some light on the truth, not in the defense of anyone or against of anyone. So then, let me shed some light on some common misconceptions, distortions of the truth, and outright lies.
I implore Muslims to open their minds, hearts, and listen to reason for once, to gain reliable knowledge about Israel and a concise and clear understanding of this conflict instead of the gospel of catastrophe, martyrdom, death, and Jihad. This is sin even to think to kill any human being without any valid reason; rather you want to kill all Jews of this planet, why? They are also human beings, why you want to follow the barbaric Sharia Laws that openly encourage vandalism and Holocaust.
If Muslims really want ‘Peace’ then the only logical answer is to compromise on a two-state solution, but the problem can not solve because Muslims are not interested in peace, rather they want to cut down all Jews in ‘Pieces.’
This is not a really complex conflict in the world; rather I think it is the easiest conflict in the world. Because Israel recognizes the right of Palestinian that they have their own state and they live in peace and tranquility. The problem starts when not only Palestinian but the entire Muslim world does not recognize the same right of the tiny Jewish state of Israel to exist since its birth.
Israel also do not believe in imperialism because after a decade in 1978, entire Sinai Peninsula was given back to Egypt after peace agreement; a land bigger than Israel itself and with oil resources! Israel is always been willing to do the same thing with Palestinians, if Palestinians also recognize Israel as a sovereign Jewish state and promise to live in peace and harmony with it. Unfortunately, Muslims always glorify terrorism, humiliation of Jews and wants to annihilate Jews completely then of course it will turn in a complex conflict.
Very strange and inhumane, 22 Arab countries and total 56 Muslim countries, and there is only one tiny Jewish state in the world, smaller in size than El Salvador! If Israeli lay down arms, without any delay, according the beliefs and tenets of the Muslims, destruction of Israel and mass genocide of Jewish population will happen. On the contrary if Muslims and especially Arabs lay down arms against Israel, peace is guaranteed immediately.
After the greatest atrocities of the Holocaust, Israel state was founded within the ancestral homeland of its original habitants viz the Jews; Israel was not founded on land stolen from the Palestinian people. There has never been a state in the Middle East known as Palestinian that was not Jewish state. According to the history first Kingdom: 1000 – 586 B.C, second Kingdom 538 – 63 B.C and today Israel is the third state to exist in the same land. There was never any Arab state, Muslim state and never Palestinian state. I want to ask Muslims, why can not the one Jewish state be allowed to exist in their ancestral land?
My pals, even the close ones taunt me of pro Israel and the West, that how being as a humanist and pacifist you can justify the killing of innocent people and children? I don't, I can't…. As a matter of fact, I spent 26 years of my life in Middle East and I know all Arab nationalities, their mentality, nature and hatred towards Jews; the small children are taught there to hate from the day one. This is brainwashing and entirely inhumane. When you are utilizing your own children, women and civilians as human shield then it is nearly impossible to avoid civilian causalities, remember you are in the state of war with Israel, not indulging in Picnic or love.
Israel intentionally do not target civilians or is not committing any Genocide, otherwise this conflict can be solved in a few days, this is Muslims’ good luck that Jews and rest of the world are not the follower of their barbaric Sharia laws, they are civilized people, otherwise……!
Whenever possible, Israel goes to great lengths to try and avoid civilian causalities; I admit, in war horrific and tragic mistakes happen. Please tell me honestly, what would you do in such scenario, how to deal with the people whose slogan is "We love death more than the Jews love life".
How do you deal with the people who believe in sacrificing even their women and children as suicide bombers, strapping explosives to their bodies and seducing them to go to the area of highest civilian concentration that they can reach and kill themselves and as many around them as possible?
Dear reader, if you are not a hypocrite and a liar then tell me, what if such threats were aimed at your own family? No matter how horrible the consequences of the decision may be would you not do whatever it took to save them?
Israel is not the only best model of democracy and freedom in the Middle East rather there is no comparison of Israel with all 56 Muslim countries of the world; a country surrounded by 22 hostile Muslim countries, where people are able to enjoy freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Israel is a country where Israeli Muslim Arabs also share all benefits without any discrimination.
On the contrary, in oil rich Muslim countries, Arabs treat you as animals, despite believing and share the same religion, but you are not more than a slave; Modern Slavery, keep you living in fear, to horrify you, and to profit from it.!
I want to make my voice heard and spread this message of truth that the Crusades, Inquisition, the Persian and Ottoman Empires, the Holocaust, all have been trying to exterminate the Jewish nation from this planet for thousands of years. No one succeeds, the Nation of Israel lives and the Jewish people will endure.
According to the verses of the Quran regarding the Jews; Jews are people of various bad qualities, known for their loathsome characters and contemptible behavior; they are liars, ingrates, selfish, arrogant, rebels, lawbreakers, cowardly naggers and cheaters, prone to crime and aggression etc… Dear Muslims, please see your own character and your history in the light of these verses; in fact these verses fit upon you instead of Jews, you deserve wrath of the God not the Jews!

A lot of people are commenting that there is nothing to watch on CNN. Instead of news, CNN is daily airing hours of Anthony Bourdain travelling to experiment with food and hours of crime shows, such as “Forensic Files,” which is probably the most interesting thing to watch these days on CNN.
The current administration scandals and other important topics are ignored by CNN, unless they are in the context of criticism of Republicans. CNN seems to be trying to force a reality on the American public that does not exist. The majority of the American people are concerned about the economy, the scandals and the radical change the administration is forcing on the American people. Like it or not, all of the media, right and left, should be reporting on Obama’s push for such radical changes. If the leftist media supports the change, then fine, but they should go ahead and talk about why they support it, instead of pretending that nothing is happening in America.
We now have a situation where instead of reporting on government, CNN thinks and acts as though they are the government. Instead of naming their shows with titles that reflect what the media’s job should be — to be a watch-dog — they have chosen to impersonate government. We thus have a show on CNN entitled, “The Situation Room” in which Wolf Blitzer reports as though CNN and the White House situation rooms are the same.The role of the media is supposed to be to keep citizens informed and educated about what is going on inside their government, in society and in the world. America under Obama has been undergoing a major change that is very alarming to many American citizens, but the mainstream media seems not to notice.
Another CNN show is “State of the Union.” Again here CNN is playing the role of president of the United States, reporting on the state of the union. Another unsuccessful daytime show that was canceled soon after it started was Kyra Phillips’ “Raising America.” Here we see yet another maternalistic title attempting to control and teach America how to raise its kids.
The mainstream media have extended the separation of “Church and State” to their own reporting. In so doing, they have confused themselves with the government yet again. America has left untapped the great talent of many outstanding male and female pastors and religious leaders who would be wonderful guest and hosts of many non-religious shows. Just look at the success of Mike Huckabee on FOX. It is a shame to see disclaimers by some TV channels stating that “they are not responsible for the content” of religious shows such as the 700 Club, but the disclaimer is never made on other shows.
The leftist media is starting to feel the negative effects of its insincerity and bias. Instead of self-discipline and sticking to their duty to the public, they have allowed themselves to be seduced into competing with the goals and role of the government. Instead of objectively examining the causes of their shrinking viewership, they continue to impose their agenda to educate the public about what their of hope and change should be. Instead of reflecting what is going on in society so that the public can make informed decisions, they continue with their obsession of steering the public into their leftist agenda.
MSNBC has recently been trying to get the public excited about yet anotherhope and change initiative in a commercial called “Growing Hope.” This is what the commercial says:
“When the truth is empowered to action, then truth is spoken to power; when light shines on equality and justice the seed of hope is sewn; it drives you to tackle the hard stuff; to stop gun violence; to protect voter rights; to fight so everyone has access to health care; and make sure that no one falls through the cracks; as hope grows so does the power of people. Change begins with you.”
The above commercial is an insult to the intelligence of the American people. It promotes a high level of conformity to values that are not necessarily universally held by all Americans. In pursuit of MSNBC’s search for the perfect life, everyone will shame and blame the other for allowing someone else to fall through the cracks. The end result will be confusion, disappointment and pitting people against one another, instead of promoting values of self-reliance, taking responsibility and pulling oneself up by one’s boot straps and doing what is best for oneself, one’s family and one’s community.
It is not the job of the media to promote the perfect society where health care is a right; or as MSNBC puts it “the healthcare you deserve.” Healthcare will never be a right because human beings cannot have rights that obligate another human being to do something for them. Healthcare is a commodity that requires doctors to provide a service and doctors will only do their job when they are paid.I have come from an area of the world that is in desperate need for hope and change, the Middle East, and this lesson is not for America. Of course, America like any nation, needs constant fine-tuning to get better and better, but those behind the MSNBC commercial have no clue what the American people need, can or cannot do. The American people need jobs and less government obstacles. They don’t need to be shamed into not measuring up to MSNBC’s unrealistic expectations. They do not need to be changed into conforming robots with hopes of false rights and duties.
The US current dysfunctional media need a major overhaul. They need to treat people like adults so they can act like adults, leave governing to the government, and leave us, citizens, to decide what is best for us, our families and our nation.
I lived half of my life in the Middle East under a “government-controlled media” and I will not accept to live the second half under a “media-controlled government.”

My dear friend Ali Sina mentioned in his most recent article that a Muslim professor, Hossein Askari, believes that Western nations lead the World in “Islamic values” and that most Muslim nations practice the least Islamic values. I have heard such nonsense before from some Muslims, some of whom were my relatives. I will never forget the strange look on my Christian American husband’s face when an elderly Muslim man visiting from Egypt told him: “You are such a fine young man, you have the character of a true Muslim.”
It is not unusual for Muslims to describe non-Muslims whom they perceive as good as having “Islamic values.” Many Christians in Egypt have to suffer hearing comments by Muslims such as: “You are so good, you must convert to Islam, you have the character of a true Muslim.”
Muslims are trained to adjust reality to Islamic propaganda; thus everything good must come from Islam and everything bad comes from the Kafir non-believer. So it is Islamic logic to believe that if Christians are good then they must be Muslim, but they just don’t know it yet.How can educated Muslims professors make ridiculous claims like that Ireland “leads the world in Islamic values as Muslim states lag”? Islamic logic, in that case, says, if Irish people have noses, eyes, arms and legs like Muslims then they must be Muslim. This twisted logic wants to hide the truth: that many Muslims no longer want to live under Islamic values, but since that is considered apostasy in Islam, the only way out is to claim life in the land of the Great Satan is really equal to living the true Islamic life.
The Muslim dilemma about the West gets more complicated when over 70% of Muslim youth are desperately trying to leave the Muslim world to immigrate to Western nations. Many Muslims are stunned, disappointing and filled with envy when they compare infidel and Islamic nations and discover that infidels have achieved what Muslims could only dream of. Such an awakening by Muslims flies against the Islamic propaganda that has indoctrinated generations into believing that Islam is the solution.
So if Islam is the solution, how come Muslims are happier in the West? Simple: Muslims discovered what the West failed to understand about their own values; According to Muslims, it is Islamic values — so “Allahu Akbar” anyway.
Islam has trained the Islamic mind to solve any contradictions with the goal of making sure that Islam looks good at any cost. In other words, reality has to adjust to Islamic teachings. Muslims must never admit that Western success is attributed to the Judeo-Christian value system. That is why Muslim professors on American college campuses claim that Western cultural success is due to Islamic and not Biblical values, and that the US Constitution is Sharia compliant.
This is nothing new for Islam, Mohammed himself claimed that Christianity and Judaism, which preceded Islam by thousands of years, are in fact Islam, but have just been corrupted. Mohammed started by linking himself to the Abrahamic line in order to get legitimacy and after that he discredited the Jews and Christians as apes, pigs and enemies of Allah. Mohammed taught his followers that Abraham, Jesus, Moses etc., all are in fact Muslims and have Islamic values.
Because of Islamic Sharia’s severe and humiliating punishments, Muslims had to mold their thinking to never venture outside the Islamic mental box. Muslims who are brave enough to think critically for themselves will easily find Islamic values, summed up in Sharia, to be the antithesis of Biblical values.
Mr. Askari, like many devout Muslims, refuses to judge Islam by its fruits that are exploding all around the world. Instead of graciously giving credit where it is due — to the fruits of the Bible — he chose to slap Western culture in the face by shamelessly teaching that Western nations’ success is due to Islamic values. Amazing, that sounds exactly like Mohammed.
Askari probably feels that the poor Western citizens just don’t know what Islam already knows, but are unaware that the West is practicing Islamic values more than Muslims themselves.This line of thought fits perfectly with the jihadists who are hell bent on violently converting the West to Islam. But the smart stealth jihadist Muslims choose to leave violent jihad to others, and would rather tell the American people that everything good is Islamic and that the corrupted values of the Bible could not have resulted in the fruits of Western success.
Most Muslims are unaware that it is Muslim culture that heavily borrowed from the Bible. Muslims often say “don’t go to bed angry” but are unaware that this is a Biblical value and not a Quranic value. They say “Salamu Alaykum” and respond by saying “Alaykum El Salam” but are unaware that they have borrowed this from Jews’ “Shalom Aleikhem” and the response “Aleikhem Shalom.” They say that Islam is a religion of peace when in fact Islam advocates war and relentlessly urges its followers to die in war while killing the enemies of their Allah.
The so called “moderate Muslims” who advocate that the US Constitution is Sharia compliant, are dangerous because they are stealth jihadists who have no loyalty to the US Constitution and what America is all about. Their loyalty is to the Islamic agenda of the establishment of the Khalifate. The religion of Mohammed has produced millions of people who think like Askari who are constantly struggling with a severe case of ethnocentrism.
Western nations so far have based their way of life on Judeo-Christian values of the Bible; a book outlawed by Islam under penalty of death. It is time for American college campuses to get rid of Muslim teachers who under the guise of research are advocating Islam 101.

There is more bad news for moderate Muslims who deny any connection between Islam and terror and who insist on convincing the West that no one should interpret Quranic commandments to kill, behead, torture, terrorize, humiliate, belittle and never befriend the non-believer, as violent.
As I was watching an Arabic Aljazeerah TV show, which did not have a date, called “Sharia and Hayaa,” meaning Islamic law and life, the topic was “Dawaa Baina Al Tarhib Wal Targhib,” Arabic for “Preaching between Terror and Lure.” The word “dawaa” means preaching or spreading Islam. “Tarhib” is derived from the word “irhab” or terror, and “tarhib” means to instill terror. Incidentally, the Quran encourages Muslims to “instill terror through the hearts of unbelievers.” The word “targhib” means luring or making something attractive. I am sure Islamic apologists will dispute the interpretation since they never admit that the word “kill” in the Quran means “kill” anyway.
A Quranic verse (The Rock 49-50) was mentioned at the beginning of the show stating that Allah said: “tell my worshippers that I am the beneficent the merciful and my torture [Athab] is a painful one”; two opposite extreme descriptions of Allah, or more accurately Mohammed himself, that became the foundation of the contradictory doctrine of Islam.“Tarhib Wal TarghibI” is an Islamic doctrine that the West and many Muslims are unfamiliar with but that demonstrates yet another clear connection between Islam and terror. This doctrine promotes the use of two extreme tools to bring people and nations to submit to Islam. Such polar opposite and extreme techniques penetrate Islamic society from top to bottom; they are encouraged in child rearing, in the relationship between men and women, leaders and citizens, mosque preachers and the congregation, Arab media and the public, and even between Islamic nations and the West — the nations they wish to conquer or lure to Islam.
It must be noted that Arabic Aljazeerah discusses Islam in a totally different light from English Aljazeerah, which is designed to lure Westerners to the idea that Islam is peaceful while defending terror as freedom fighting.
This doctrine is a summation of what the Quran is all about, terror and lure, and promotes such extremely but powerful and raw cultural attributes of Muslim society; shame and pride. Such a doctrine has also evolved from Mohammed’s character when he failed to peacefully evangelize through persuasion and “lure” and therefore had to flip tactics, going straight to pure terror. Thus his famous saying “I have been victorious through terror.”
The show’s questions were more interesting than the answers. The host, Othman Othman, was trying to bring the guest, Islamic Dawah “preaching” expert Dr. Salman Alawda, to state that Islam equally balances the two extreme tools of terror and peaceful teaching. These were some of his questions: Many say terror and bullying are necessary. How do we achieve balance regarding the names of Allah between punishment and forgiveness? Why is it that the agony side often prevails over the mercy side? Are hardship and pain required for their own sake when it comes to Islamic legislation? Why does the discussion of the torment of the grave, death and the afterlife turn into a terrifying discussion? Why are Salafis more inclined to use fear/terror factor regarding global advocacy? Some ask, shouldn’t we [Muslims] be judged as imperfect humans anyway?
The host, while exalting Islam, the Quran and Mohammed, was desperately trying to get a glimmer of hope with his questions to bring out any trace of joy and hope for Muslims who want to enjoy life right here on Earth, but are not getting such a message from Islamic teachings. Unfortunately the guest provided very little hope when he skillfully spinned that Islam does have a balance. But what failed the guest was the fact that values of joy, life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, and making the world a better place, do not exist in the Quran. The guest could not give the host the good news, when he asserted that seeking pleasure and happiness on earth is equal to death. The guest’s discussion of the good life for Muslims was narrowed down to the after life in the Islamic jannah, heaven. Thus the Islamic promise of virgins and carnal pleasure became the infamous lure Islam uses on the jihadis, pushing them into waging Allah’s war of terror on his enemies: the unbelievers.
The lesson America needs to learn and get united under is that we, the West, right now are under assault by the good old Islamic doctrine of Terror and Lure; two sides of the polar opposite and deceptive face of Islam.
If the West continues to believe that Islam is a religion of peace, then unfortunately for the West they will suffer irrevocable consequences.Originally posted HERE.

PROTECTING APOSTATES FROM HATE CRIMES
Whereas the law places more severe penalties on the perpetrators of hate
crimes than on other criminals; and
Whereas the law defines hate crimes as offenses against individuals because
of bias against their religion, race, sexual preferences or other factors; and
Whereas persons who leave a religion, sect or cult (often called “apostates”)
sometimes suffer severe harassment, including slander, intimidation, property
destruction, violence, and even death;
Therefore, be it resolved that those responsible for enforcing hate-crime
laws be made aware that apostates from any religion, sect or cult are included
in protections under the full coverage of federal and state hate-crime
legislation, so that their persecutors will be faced with the enhanced penalties
that hate-crime statutes impose; and
Be it further resolved that training of law-enforcement personnel include the
safety needs of apostates; and
Be it finally resolved that this resolution be sent to King County Sheriff John
Urquhart, the King County Executive and members of the County Council;
the Seattle Mayor, Chief of Police and members of the Seattle City Council;
and the mayors of Auburn, Bothell, Bellevue, Carnation, Des Moines,
Enumclaw, Federal Way, Kent, Kirkland, Issaquah, Lake Forest Park, Mercer
Island, Normandy Park, Redmond, Renton, and Tukwila.
