More On Barack


The Obama’s certainly seem to owe their allegiance to an Ideology other than America

By de Andréa

Michelle Obama’s comment that, “for the first time in her adult life, she feels proud of America”, helps to crystallize who Barack Obama is.

To be sure, the wife of a candidate is perfectly free to have views that are distinct from her husband’s. But on a matter that is so fundamental to one’s being as love of country, it is difficult to imagine that Michelle Obama would publicly not once, as one might miss-speak, but twice to make such a statement suggesting disdain for America unless she felt it comported with her husband’s views.

Maybe Barack would feel more comfortable saying the pledge of allegiance to this flag…


Or would Michelle be more proud of America if it was part of the Nation of Islam…

Equally important, her statement aligns perfectly with the hate-America views of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the Obama’s minister, long time friend, and sounding board for more than two decades. On the Sunday following 9/11, Rev. Wright characterized the terrorist attacks as a consequence of violent American policies. Four years later, Wright suggested that the attacks were retribution for America’s racism.

While America was burying her dead after 9/11/01,” Wright wrote in his church magazine “ The Trumpet,” “White America and the Western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork, or just ‘disappeared’ as the Great White West kept on its merry path of ignoring black concerns.” I have two questions for the Reverend: One, -- is Black America ignoring White concerns, who is the racists here? Two,-- if White America is so terrible, why doesn’t the Reverend go to Black Africa where he might be killed for speaking his racist mind.

Obama, dressed in his Islamic Jihad garb in Wajir Kenya

Wright has been a key supporter of Louis Farrakhan, an American Muslim Leader, and in December, honored the Nation of Islam leader for a lifetime achievement, saying he “truly epitomize[s] greatness.” Farrakhan has repeatedly made hate-filled statements targeting Jews, whites, and Christians. Well, he is a Muslim, what do you expect.

Those who think two of the closest people to Obama could publicly make anti-America statements unless Obama himself felt that way, are fooling themselves. To date, Obama has proven himself to be nothing more than a great orator, rendering the statements of those around him and if nothing else, illuminating his true character and agenda.

During his Senate career, he skipped 17 percent of the votes and sponsored only one bill that became law. Bereft of official accomplishments, Obama has distinguished himself mainly by being anti-America, and stepping out against measures that protect American security, such as finishing the mission in Iraq. If we were to leave Iraq quickly, as Obama vows he would do, it would become a launch pad for al-Qaida attacks on the U.S.
With his pro-Muslim and anti-American views this is possibly the direction that he is planning to lead America, right into the hands of Islam.

Obama avoided voting on extending the Protect America Act, thus putting America at risk when immediate interception of terrorist communications is required. Last August, Obama voted against a measure that would have allowed the U.S. to continue to monitor overseas conversations of terrorists like Osama bin Laden without first obtaining a warrant. If his radical agenda had prevailed, bin Laden would have been given the same rights as American citizens. Again Obama’s “Islamic color green” may be showing more all the time.

To this day, Obama has not distanced himself from the Rev. Wright’s comments. In a statement supposedly issued to address the matter, Obama ignored the point that his minister and friend had spoken adoringly of Farrakhan and that Wright’s church was behind the award to the Nation of Islam leader, which Wright awarded Farrakhan while visiting with him in the Muslim Nation of Libya. . Instead, he disingenuously claimed he thought the magazine bestowed the award on Farrakhan for his efforts to rehabilitate ex-prisoners. Neither Wright’s encomiums about Farrakhan nor the Trumpet article mentions ex-prisoners.

Similarly, after John McCain’s wife Cindy responded to Michelle Obama’s remarks by telling a Wisconsin rally, “I have, and always will be, proud of my country,” Barack Obama told a radio interviewer that his wife did not say what people think she said. He then proceeded to rewrite her comments, claiming that she had meant she was encouraged by the “large numbers of people” who have gotten involved in the political process. Michelle Obama then made a similar revision of her remarks.

In her speech in Milwaukee, Michelle Obama said flatly, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”

And what has been wrong with America up to now? That it gave Michelle the opportunity to attend Princeton and Harvard Law School? That it gave Barack Obama the chance to attend Harvard and Harvard Law School and become a U.S. senator making more than $1 million a year from book royalties? Was it, that America, that stopped Nazi Germany from continuing to murder millions of Jews? That America, that has provided Africa and other countries with $15 billion to combat the spread of AIDS/HIV and another $30 billion is on the way? That America, where 46 percent of all Americans classified by the Census Bureau as poor, own their own homes, 76 percent of them have air conditioning, and 75 percent of them have at least one car? Or that America, that allows us to express our views freely without fear of being put in jail, as is the case of most other countries.

As a lawyer, Michelle Obama is perfectly capable of expressing herself precisely. In fact, she spoke from a written speech, twice….

Those who do not want to believe she meant what she said — and that Barack Obama could not be so close to Rev. Wright if he did not himself believe in all of what he stands for — may just be deceived and in denial. In any case, do you really want to take a chance on hiring him for the most powerful position in the world???

THE BOTTOM LINE: How many of you can’t see what I see? Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim name, which he hasn’t changed since becoming a so-called Christian. He has had two fathers, a biological, and a step father, both Muslims.

It is reported that his Mother was a white Christian woman from Kansas. White? Probably. But a Christian would never marry a Muslim and a Muslim would certainly never marry a Christian. The Christian would be unequally yoked and the Muslim would be killed. Moreover she married two of them, do you think she had a special affinity for Muslims? Quite probably she was a Muslim as well.

He attended a Muslim school both in Hawaii and a Wahhabist Muslim school in Indonesia. His Church minister and confidant of over twenty years, is an obvious racists and America hater, who worships not God, but holds in high esteem, the National Muslim leader, Louis Farrakhan.

If there ever was a time to use the example of “if it walks like a duck”… this is the time. Moreover he is running for President of these United States. The real Barack Hussein Obama has been emerging for some time, and for those of us who are grateful to God for everything America represents, it is not a pretty sight. May God help America…

Feeling Safe?


Maybe you shouldn’t, the Federal Government admits it has no idea of who is in this country.

By de Andréa

It seems that immigration, legal and illegal, is too numerically overwhelming for the federal government to handle properly.

This is primarily due to an archaic outdated system of slow moving paper in a fast moving E-world, the problem is, that the system of background checks is inefficient. The FBI electronically stores approximately 80 million investigative files for about 80 percent of legal immigrants. The remaining 20 percent are paper-based searches for any mention of an applicant’s name in records stored in 265 separate locations across this country.

These files are not even merged and duplicated, each one of the 265 separate locations must be checked individually, and can literally take years to complete a check. One might think…well, they only have to check 20 percent of the background checks on these paper records scattered all across this country in cardboard boxes in the storerooms of FBI offices. Not so! If a name or identity does not appear in the computer files, meaning only that there may not be any criminal record in the electronic system, they must still check the remaining 20% of these archaic unmerged separate paper files. This could result in and increase of as much as 50%. Moreover, this is just the legal immigration process; the processing of illegal aliens is simply non existent. Still feeling safe?

After the debacle last year of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007, Americans were told that “illegal immigrants live among us in the shadows and that the federal government has no way of knowing who they are.”

The DOL acknowledges that most of the agricultural workers in this country are illegal immigrants. But how are Americans supposed to trust the federal government to enforce the border and deport those who arrive illegally when it is incapable of checking those who are here legally or illegally?

This is an egregious problem, one highlighted earlier last month when President George W. Bush’s administration announced that it will grant permanent residency status to tens of thousands of legal immigrants without first completing their required background checks against the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigative files because the backlog of legal immigration cases is too large and growing rapidly.

The change in status will affect an unknown number of applicants whose cases otherwise are complete but whose FBI checks have been pending for six months to a year. The backlog has left many legal immigrants in limbo. I applaud these immigrants for following the rules and applying to live here legally. But they are not the problem; the federal government; is the problem.

What type of signal does this send to those who may be criminals in their home country or Islamic terrorists who seek to destroy America for ideological reasons?

The recent release of a so-called study on the percentages of illegal criminals in this country is flawed. The study used only the number of incarcerated illegals as a percentage of illegal alien criminals in this country. The study did not for example account for the fact that 69.8 % of the outstanding wants and warrants for violent crimes in Los Angles County alone are known to be Illegal aliens. So it is just another one of these feel good attempts of a vote for “Tolerance and Multi-Cultureism” no matter what the cost.

The signal is loud and clear:
Those with criminal records, including violent ones, or those who would mount terrorist attacks against us can beat the system because the federal government is too uncoordinated, lethargic and basically incompetent to check their backgrounds.

This is a serious threat to our national security, not because all these aliens, legal or illegal, have criminal or terrorists intentions but because it only requires a few, or even one to slip through the cracks to wreak havoc on our cities and country.

The decision to grant permanent residency status to hundreds of thousands of legal immigrants without first completing their required background checks is to put it mildly, a disservice to American citizens, as well as a violation of the U. S. Constitution article 4 section 4. Moreover there is the lengthy waiting period for legal immigrants, many of whom may have jobs and families in limbo hinging on the outcome of their residency status which tends to exacerbate the problem of illegal entry into the United States. The federal government is failing both groups.

Misappropriation of funds
Congress has approved more money to update the system to speed the FBI name checks.
Unfortunately, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the agency handling the background checks for permanent residency status, plans to use the increased funding to hire more FBI contractors. As has come to be expected from the federal government, this is just more of the same incompetence.

What USCIS should do is mount an intensive campaign with the FBI to make all FBI files electronic, so that it will no longer require so much time and manpower to dig through paper files across the country. But such a common-sense idea rarely occurs to government bureaucrats.

THE BOTTOM LINE: The federal government needs to get a handle on immigration, both legal and illegal, and do it soon. It has failed the American people on this issue more than any other, and will continue to fail unless we demand an immediate overhaul of the current system. And that does not mean more bureaucracy.

When, as a US law abiding citizen, one is born here, razed here, was in the military, had a security clearance, and applied for a CCW license, they checked background through FBI, CIA, Interpol, MI-5 and MI-6 state and local law enforcement, and the cookie monsters cookie jar. But they just let any foreign alien legal or illegal in this country without so much as knowing who they are, where they came from, or why they are here. Still feeling safe???

YouTube Shut Down



How Good Is Your Security???
Google woke up one morning to discover they had lost their newly acquired Company, YouTube


By de Andréa

Yes it seems that one can loose an entire corporation over night. It simply vanished into thin air.

Well not quite, but nevertheless Google couldn’t even access their own Company YouTube on line, this all because the Nation of Islam had shut it down. Yes the Pakistani government didn’t like a video that was posted on the web site so it simply shut it down, not just the posting, the whole site...

One might wonder just how our enemy the Nation of Islam can shut down entire web sites in the U.S. or as in this case all over the world.

Well, Brad Andriese, a computer I.T. manager guru of Davis Interments Corp. in California, explains just how this fiasco was pulled off by the Muslim Pakistani Government, he said. “Thought you might get a kick out of this one. Google's YouTube service had a major outage over the weekend.

Apparently there was a video on YouTube that was negative about Muslims (the one made by the Dutch guy) that the Pakistan government didn't like. So it instructed its ISPs to block YouTube at the router level using BGP.

This would prevent anyone in Pakistan from using YouTube. That's their choice right? But, BGP is a protocol used by routers to determine the best route to a particular destination. Typically, routers share BGP data, and that's where the bigger problem comes in.

Mistakenly (or not), Pakistani ISP's shared the (null route) YouTube BGP (high priority) policy with routers in Hong Kong who shared it with the rest of the world (as they normally would)

A small ISP in San Francisco first noticed the problem, and called Google. Google was confused because their technicians couldn't even get to their own web site. It took hours to track the problem down. ....and the industry discovers yet another security problem, this time initiated by a foreign government, interesting. “

Brad Andriese

THE BOTTOM LINE: I wonder if Ahmadinejad just didn’t like the fact that the U.S. was trying to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Could he just use this BGP or some other protocol to shut down our Government? Or at least our military computerized communication system?

One thing for sure, this certainly is a new kind of war.

I wonder if we are prepared for it...

Sack the Experts Part II


Stephen Coughlin, the Pentagon’s resident expert on Islamic Sharia law and Islamist philosophy, was fired from his position on the military's Joint Staff. The reason; he believes that there is a connection between the Muslim religion and terror

By de Andréa

No, that is not the real reason, the real reason is that he is outspoken about it. And you thought that we had freedom of speech in America. No! Sharia law takes precedence unless proven otherwise.

I wrote this original story on January 23, 2008 this is the latest chapter in the Pentagon’s firing of Stephen Coughlin, the leading U.S. authority on Islamic war doctrine as spelled out in the Quran. Out with the good, and in with the bad. We must be living in an upside down world.

Hesham Islam, a Muslim top Pentagon aide to the Deputy Secretary of Defense, derided Coughlin as a “Christian zealot with a pen,” which led to Coughlin’s demise. However it has now apparently been brought to the attention of the Pentagon, that some questionable “holes” have been discovered in Hesham’s past, as well as in his present.

Just maybe, Maj. Coughlin is right!
There may be hope for this government after all. One can only hope that this is a wakeup call, at least for the Pentagon not to hire our enemy to fight our enemy. Of course that will depend on whether the Pentagon actually knows who our enemy is. The whole survival of this country may hinge on whether we begin to listen to people like Coughlin or continue down the slippery slope, right into the hell of Islam.

The ongoing infiltration of the Nation of Islam into our government unless reversed pronto, will be the demise of America, no matter how mighty we think we are.

In a stunning turn of events, the high-level Muslim U.S. military aide Hesham Islam blamed for costing the intelligence contractor Stephen Coughlin his job, will now step down from his own Pentagon post.

I don’t know if the lack of reason or logic regarding the hiring of our enemy to high-level military positions, or any position short of making license plates has occurred to anyone but me, but unless this government gets a handle on who our enemy is, soon, we may win this war in Iraq, only to lose our country here at home.

Maj. Stephen Coughlin, the leading authority on Islamic war doctrine, may now be staying in the Pentagon after all, moving from the office of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to the office of the secretary of defense. However, sources say a former U.S. ambassador to Turkey, another deceived American, is trying to block his new contract. I mean really, does anyone hear an alarm bell ringing here somewhere???

The top Pentagon aid, an Egyptian Muslim named Hesham Islam is finding his past unraveling like a sweetish sweater, as well as his resent contacts with known Muslim terrorists. He is now expected to leave the government next month.

Officials say.
Islam and Coughlin recently quarreled over intelligence briefings; Coughlin made the mistake of presenting a brief that reflected his expertise, and note the elementary principle presented here, in the brief---he showed a connection between the religion of Islam and terrorism , and this mistake, led to Coughlin getting his pink slip. I guess that will teach our experts not to tell the truth and make our enemy feel bad, it just isn’t prudent, as well as lacking a significant amount of political correctness, with possibly a slight lack of cultural tolerance thrown in.

As a result of the ensuing firestorm that played out in the conservative press – led by Washington Times Pentagon reporter Bill Gertz – Hesham Islam was put under a microscope, and questions were raised regarding his background.

A writer finds suspicious holes in Hesham’s résumé
For example, Claudia Rosett of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies wrote a column challenging key claims in Islam's official biography. Within days, a Defense Department profile of Islam was removed from the department's website. Bear in mind this was not an intelligence officer that discovered the inconsistencies in Heshams paperwork; this was an independent civilian writer just surfing the internet.

A Pentagon spokesman said it was "taken down in an attempt to reduce the rhetoric and the emotion surrounding this issue while we try to determine the facts.” A senior U.S. official says the life story Islam presented now appears sketchy. "His resume didn't add up, and he knows it," the official said. "He is voluntarily leaving the government in March." Voluntarily! Not fired??? Not tried for treason??? Not even slapped on the wrist??? Of course not, that would again be politically incorrect, at least it would be racists or mean spirited or something, wouldn’t’ it??? Maybe even a hate crime…

Again, I can’t help but be reminded of all the extensive background checks one must go through just to get a CCW license. Ones entire life is checked by local law enforcement, State police, FBI, Homeland security, CIA, Interpol, MI-5 and MI-6, KGB and Kermit’s mayonnaise jar. But for some reason, for a top position in the Pentagon by a Muslim, while we are at war with Muslims, it doesn’t occur to our intelligence to do a proper background check. Sorry I may have misspoke about the intelligence part.

At the same time, a report by terror expert Steven Emerson revealed that Hesham Islam, while as special assistant to the deputy secretary of defense, had scheduled at least two meetings in the Pentagon with Syrian-tied terrorists – including a leading member of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood – in direct violation of U.S. policy. Oooooh… God help us…

A prime example of deceptive Islamic infiltration
FBI officials reported that Hesham Islam has been involved with the U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, a Muslim terrorist group, and is helping its front groups run "influence operations" against the U.S. government. In spite of this, Hesham, a known Muslim terrorist supporter, has been a trusted high-level official, advising our military how to defeat our enemy…go figure…No wonder this Iraqi war is going on and on and on…

We must be stuck on stupid
He is a Muslim terrorist, and he has made other unreported nefarious contacts. Hesham Islam has also worked closely in the Pentagon with another Muslim terrorist guru, this time a U.S. Army chaplain (Imam) Abuhena M. Saifulislam, who also received his training at a known terrorist Islamic school in Northern Virginia that was raided by federal authorities after 9/11. This terrorist military infiltrator also received an unprecedented award or a medal directly from the pentagon. The Pentagon is certainly stuck on stupid.

Our enemy is in our schools, in our businesses, in our cities, in our churches, in our governments, in our police departments and in our military. I can’t think of a place that we haven’t invited our enemy Islam with open arms to infiltrate and corrupt this country.

Allah has cast a spell of blindness on our leaders
Hesham Islam, whose son is active as well in the U.S. military, obtained one of the highest security clearances for classified information. Sources confirm he has sat in on Pentagon meetings in which intelligence clearance was restricted at the Top Secret/SCI (Sensitive Compartmented Information) need to know level. I sure hope God forgives stupid people...

Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., who co-chairs the House Anti-Terrorism Caucus, has been fighting to keep Coughlin in the Pentagon, where she says his honest, truthful, and blunt analysis of this Islamic enemy is sorely needed. Citing federal court documents introduced as evidence in a recent major terror case, she also warns that U.S. front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood are conspiring to destroy America from within.

"Our enemies have clearly stated their intention to infiltrate us, much like the Russians did during the Cold war," Myrick said. "We had no problem analyzing and acting on that information then. I know that some people will refuse to admit there is a subversive movement going on here, but let me remind you that we have underestimated the will and capability of our enemy for more than 100 years," she added. "They are patient and determined to achieve their radical agenda of world domination."

Thank God for people like Representative Sue Myrick of North Carolina, it is people like her that give me a little hope that there are at least a few people in the United States Government that have not been totally deceived by our enemy, Islam.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Well, the bottom line, being the last line, has yet to be written. Only time will tell whether or not God will intervene and open the eyes of our leaders in the Federal Government before this worlds last hope of Freedom slips quietly into the abyss of Islam’s hell.

The Muslim Revolution


No it will not go away just by wishing it would go away.


By de Andréa
February 13, 2008

Islam will dominate the world”; this is what Allah said in his book the Quran, and we ignore it. “The Arian race will dominate the world”, this is what Adolf Hitler said in his book Mein Kampf, and we ignored him as well…

Islam, certainly is not going away; as a matter of fact it is growing. It is the fastest growing religion, not only in America, but in the world. Because it is spread by force and deception.

Those of you that have been keeping up with my articles have been informed of the growing use of the internet by Militant Islam.-- In the 90’s there were a few Muslim sites, by the beginning of the 21 Century there were hundreds, today there are thousands. The vast majority of these sites are based right here in the U.S. and are nothing short of terrorists propaganda, and in many cases they areterrorists recruiting sites.

Another one of these subtle anti-western pro-Islamic agenda sites is http://www.revolutionmuslim.com/.

On the home page you will see at the top right a drawing of an automatic weapon that appears to be the telltale AK-47 of the Muslim Jihadists. Scroll down the home page and you will read the following:

“Our mission is to one day see the Muslims united under one Khalifah and under the commands of Allah..”

This is part of the worldwide agenda of Islam: to establish Sharia law and unite the “umma” – the Muslim World Nation– under one ruler, the 12th caliph. Implicit in this, but not stated, is the rule of Islam over all people, as this is the only path to world “peace”

“We pray that we may witness the dismantlement of western, secular dominance across the world as we hold it to be pagan and idolatrous in the majority of its presumptions. We seek a resurrection of the just example set forth by centuries of Islamic rule throughout the ages and we hold it to be self evident for the objective soul and mind that Allah is One and that Muhammad ibn Abdullah is His Prophet and that the religion offers the solution to all of the world’s ills and afflictions.”

This is the call for the destruction of democratic governments and the establishment of the political rule of Islam. In the “Radical Review”, January 2008, Volume 1, we read:
“Rise up and ride the peak of Revolution, the time has come to triumph over those that wish to deceive…Rise Up Ya Muslimeen!”

It is important to emphasize that this is not an Islamic organization in the Middle East, but right here in New York City. And, if their “hit” counter is to be believed, over 769,000 people have visited this website.

Recently I sent out an e-mail petition to Congress to shut down these sites and asked you to get involved with an ambitious, aggressive plan laid out by ACT! for America and go on the offensive against the rising tide of Islamofascism that threatens us. Earlier today, the sister organization, American Congress for Truth, sent out an email describing Stephen Coughlin’s analysis of the Muslim Brotherhood memorandum that calls for “civilization Jihad” — the destruction of Western civilization from within.

These threats are not fabricated, these threats are not exaggerated. They are real — and growing. It is going to take an organized, aggressive effort to begin rolling back these threats. It is going to require action on the part of all of us who are now informed as to what we are up against. After all, if we don’t act, who will?

Some of you reading this email have already responded with a financial contribution to help fund the 120 day campaign Brigitte Gabriel announced yesterday. To those of you who have, THANK YOU!

THE BOTTOM LINE: It’s so easy for us Americans to think that what is happening in the Middle East won’t touch us, or that the “cultural Jihad” that has already overwhelmed Great Britain could not possibly happen here.

That’s precisely what militant Muslim cultural Jihadists hope we will think. I’m sure that’s what many British citizens thought, fifteen years ago. Now they have witnessed the Archbishop of Canterbury stating that the imposition of Islamic Sharia law in Great Britain is “unavoidable” and necessary for “social cohesion.”

Abraham Lincoln once wrote that “if America was ever destroyed, it would not be destroyed by an enemy from “without”– but from an enemy from within.” We are wise to consider those words in the light of what is already happening here in America.

ACT Status Report



As promised, here is the first
120 day up date of ACT for America directly from Brigitte Gabriel

Thank you, de Andréa

Our “120 Day Plan” A Status Report from Brigitte Gabriel

Dear de Andréa

I am so delighted to bring you some very exciting, encouraging news on the status of our “120 day plan”!

As you recall, last week we announced the launch of a 120 day plan to go on the offensive in our effort to stop the rising tide of Islamofascism in America. The plan had three parts:

Legislative ActionIn this part of the plan, we will craft a legislative agenda to take to our allies in Congress, with the goal of getting some new bills introduced and then launching a grassroots lobbying campaign later this year to push for the passage of those bills.

The first step is a conference call with experts in the field of national security and the threat of Islamic terrorism, to get their input. That call will be taking place this week.

Grassroots ActionThis will be a nationwide grassroots campaign aimed at disrupting the communication, networking and training of terrorists. We want to announce this campaign on a telephone town hall by March 15th.

Congressional Voting Record ResearchWe want to research voting records of Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate on issues related to national security and Islamic terrorism. Our goal is to post the results of that research on the ACT! for America website sometime in June.

Our minimum fundraising goal to enable us to effectively launch all three parts of this campaign was $195,000. Our Executive Director, Guy Rodgers, and I have been raising money the past few weeks to help us reach this goal. He and I set a personal goal to raise $120,000 of the $195,000 we needed, and we scheduled three fundraising events.

A week ago, we asked for your financial support to help get us to the $195,000 total goal.
And here’s the great news!As a result of these three events, Guy and I reached the personal goal we set, raising close to $120,000 of the $195,000 goal.You our members have contributed nearly $27,000 toward this goal of $195,000.

That means we only have $48,000 to go to reach our total goal!

For those of you who have made an online contribution or mailed a check, I am deeply grateful and humbled by your response. Thank you so very much.

If you haven’t yet made a contribution, it’s not too late to do so. Guy and I do not have any additional fundraising events scheduled for the next three weeks.

Honestly, we’re both a little weary, as we’ve traveled back and forth across the country twice in the past four weeks, working to raise the $120,000 goal we set for ourselves.

As you can see, we still need about $48,000 to reach the $195,000 goal we have set to effectively launch all three parts of this campaign.

Can I count on your help today? You can make a contribution online or mail us a check.
If you’d like to make a contribution online, please click here. It’s simple, safe and secure.
If you’d like to print out a contribution reply form and mail a check, please click here.

I’m so hoping I can hear from many more of you in the next few days. This time last year, when so many of our members were urging us to move forward, urging us to start chapters, and urging us to take various action steps, I dreamed of this day.

I pictured in my mind the time when we would add the kind of experienced, talented, professional leadership to our team that would help us take giant strides forward. We did that when we hired Guy Rodgers as our Executive Director.I pictured in my mind the time when we would have chapters starting all over the country. Now I’m proud to say that today we have over 400 people who have signed up to lead chapters, and many of them have already started their chapters. The love and activism these volunteers have for our country makes me swell with pride.

I pictured in my mind the time when we would launch aggressive campaigns to go on the offensive against the rising tide of Islamofascism. We are now prepared to do that.

This is the dream I had over five years ago, when I founded American Congress for Truth. My eyes fill with tears as I watch this dream become a reality.We’re getting so close to reaching our $195,000 fundraising goal to launch our “120 day plan.” Can I count on you today to help us raise the remaining $48,000 we need to raise?

Please click here to make an online contribution.

Please click here to print out a contribution form to fill out and mail to us with the most generous contribution you can afford.

Thank you so much, you our members and supporters. I feel honored, humbled and privileged to have you on our team. I look forward to the day I meet each and every one of you, to look into your eyes, shake your hand and tell you in person how much I value you and the part you are willing to play in helping us make America safe from militant Islam.

Yours, together, for America,

Brigitte Gabriel

Enablers of Evil


We all will eventually come face to face with the fact that even if one is an atheist or an agnostic there is both good and evil in this world.

By de Andréa

While I don’t look around every corner or expect the devil to ooze out of the wood work, I do believe we should be aware of what the source of evil is up to. If we remain ignorant of the dark side, we become enablers of evil.

I happen to believe that Jehovah God is in charge of everything, but that doesn’t mean that everything that happens is God’s will. He does allow us to be stuck on stupid if that is what we choose. Yes ignorance is a choice, especially these days, we have so many sources of information that there is really no excuse for ignorance.

I have Christian friends who absolutely refuse to look at the truth, saying that, what difference does it make anyway? God is in control, isn’t He? Being in charge doesn’t mean that God is a control freak. Gods will, is not always done, and it is usually because of his ignorant Children.

We, as citizens of a great Nation are refusing to look at the truth. This Nation didn’t become great because our Forefathers were stupid or ignorant. The architects of the Great Nation of America were very well informed, plus many of them had learned from experience or their ancestor’s experience. Most of them understood the results of bad choices.

If one is not informed enough to make a choice, many times the choice will be made anyway by someone else. Moreover, all too often by someone that does not have your best interest at heart.
Being a Christian does not mean that one just goes along for the ride. Christians may need to put on the uniform of a soldier, not because one has been asked to fight in another land in the military, but because if one does not, ones future may be decided by the source of evil.

There will come a time when all people will have to get off of the fence and take a stand for righteousness or be swept away by the enemy. Moreover, in ones ignorance, one will become an enabler for the enemy, even Christians.

Eph 6: 10-18 (NLT) says: Be strong with the Lord’s mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. For we are not fighting against a people of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of an unseen world, against wicked spirits in the in the heavenly realms.

Use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, so that after the battle you will be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness.

For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the good news, so that you will be fully prepared. In every battle you will need faith as your shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by Satan.

Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sward of the spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times and on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Christians everywhere.”


In the first paragraph I said: I do believe we should be aware of what the source of evil is up to, as well as who the source of evil is. If we remain ignorant of the dark side, we become enablers of evil. In the previous verses, you read, [we are not fighting against a people of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of an unseen world.] Today we are at war with the ruler of an unseen world. This unseen ruler Allah is using a nation of people to carry out his struggle to control and subjugate the world.

The verses also say: [Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil]. God’s armor is His word, and to have on the armor of God means to be informed, without it one will be deceived by the tricks of Allah/Lucifer/Satan/Devil. This Nation, being used by the prince of evil is of course Islam (the children of Satan).

The scripture goes on to say: Use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, so that after the battle you will be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. Again Gods armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, if one does not actively fight against the enemy in the time of evil, one is enabling the enemy. Moreover this is certainly the time of evil. If we don’t stand our ground now then after the battle we certainly will not be standing firm. And finely the belt of truth, there isn’t anything this enemy of God hates more than the truth.

For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the good news, so that you will be fully prepared. In every battle you will need faith as your shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by Satan. As for peace, it doesn’t come from the lying deceitful Nation of Islam as they would have you believe. It comes from the good news, of Gods word. If one has ever read the Quran one will not find any good news in it, if you won’t read it for yourself you will have to trust me. There is no love, no joy, no redemption, no life, only hate, anger, revenge, and death. Gods word will prepare you for life, Allah’s word will prepare you for death. The next part is a constant struggle for me, faith as my shield, in the face of continuous threats of fiery arrows aimed at me by Allah/Satan. I have to admit my armor wears a little thin at times.

Finely: Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sward of the spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times and on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Christians everywhere. The helmet of salvation, as I said Islam has no redemption, redemption comes through the payment of debt, and the payment for ones sin is death, Islam must pay this debt themselves through spiritual death. Martyrdom or suicide and mass murder guarantees them both physical and eternal spiritual death. Their god Allah is the “Angle of Eternal Death” This is why Islam is called the religion of death. It is “because they hate”. Book by Brigitte Gabriel

Jesus, the son of God on the other hand said in his word John 14; 6 “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me.” The truth and the life, and John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whosoever that believes in him should not parish but have eternal life”. Jehovah, the God of love sacrificed Himself though His Son to pay our debt of sin so that we may have eternal spiritual life. Jehovah is the “God of Eternal Life” This is why Christianity is called the religion of life. It is because they love.

Yes this is a spiritual war, it is akin to the war on Nazism. However in the case of Nazism, their god was Hitler, just a man. No doubt driven by the same ugly evil god of Islam, but the Nazis were without a real spiritual god. Islam on the other hand has a powerful spiritual entity for a god, the god of death, the god of evil, the god of hate, Allah, the god of hell.

THE BOTTOM LINE: As this Spiritual war of good and evil plays itself out, we must decide which side we are on. We must make a choice while we still can. We must choose between fighting against this enemy or become enablers of the enemy. The first step to fighting this enemy is to be informed of who and what this enemy is, and then in turn inform others. Europe, because of their ignorance, are deceived by this enemy and have become enablers, as a result they are becoming overwhelmed by this enemy; the sad part is they still don’t even recognize it. Eve did not recognize Allah/Satan, even Muhammad the prophet of Islam did not recognize Allah for who he was, the evil god of this world.

Don’t be deceived, be informed, or you will be an enabler of evil.

The Will to Survive part II

If you care about America, then you will want to read this…
This may truly be the most important e-mail that you have ever received.

Recently I posed the question that we must answer if we are to defeat the rising tide of Islamic infiltration: Do we have the will?

By de Andréa

Are you ready “To boldly go where no one else has gone?”
If you missed the first part of this article posted on THE BOTTOM LINE February 11, I suggest that you go back to it and read it before reading on today. Because, and I am serious about this, what I’m about to present to you may be the only opportunity you will ever have to help stop this enemy and the eventual Jihad of America.

If I were to ask you, “Do you, or do you want your children, grandchildren, or friends and neighbors to be subjugated under the oppressive Sharia Islamic law?” you would probably think, “that’s a silly question…of course not!” However, what you may not be aware of, is that much of our European cosines, in order to get along with its Muslim infiltrators are already adopting Sharia law as you read this article.
Were I to ask you, “Do you want to see terrorists detonate weapons of mass destruction in America, killing tens of thousands of people, destabilizing our government and plunging our economy into a deep recession?”, again, you’d probably shake your head and assert, “of course not!”

The question is: Do we have the will to do what is necessary to stop this terrorist Islamofascism, in whatever form it takes in America?

Because, simply put, if we do, we will. If we don’t, we won’t. That’s “The Bottom line”.
In the next 120 days, ACT! For America is poised to take the greatest strides, either this organization or the sister organization, American Congress for Truth, has ever taken.

ACT is preparing to launch a series of projects that, combined together, will put us on the offensive against the infiltration of militant Islam in America in a way that no other organization has dared to try.

I’m going to describe each of the projects, how they fit together into the overall plan, and tell you how much each project will cost. It is time for boldness, so I am boldly asking you today: Do you have the will to help make this offensive against militant Islam a reality? I’m not asking you to charge off to the “front lines” of the war on Islamic terrorism.

I’m asking you to make a choice, take action, make a contribution, and help ACT do what needs to be done. We are prepared to launch this offensive – but we can’t do it without your financial help.

The response that ACT receives from you and other members will determine to what extent ACT as an organization is ready to take such a bold and daring step forward.
Legislative Action

ACT is going to convene a conference call “summit” of some of the best and brightest experts on the subject of militant Islam for which I am glad to be a part if. The purpose will be to develop a list of the most effective, most powerful legislative proposals that, if enacted by Congress, would dramatically turn the tide in this conflict.

ACT will then commission a nationwide public opinion poll to assess voter opinion regarding these proposals, as well as other issues relating to the advance and infiltration of militant Islam. Cost: $40,000

Once the poll is completed, ACT will prepare a legislative agenda that we will take to our allies in the Congress. They have asked American Congress for Truth to submit proposals for legislative action. By combining the results of the “summit” of experts and the results of a scientific survey of voters, we will be able to put together a compelling package of proposals that the leadership and Brigitte Gabriel will take to Capitol Hill and present to these congressional allies. Travel expenses and related costs: $5,000

Grassroots Action
ACT has identified a powerful way to disrupt the communication, training, and recruitment of terrorists. And they want to announce this on a nationwide telephone town hall by March 15th, with a goal of at least 2,500 of you participating. Cost for the telephone townhall: $3,000

For this project to be successful will require our ability to educate and mobilize one million Americans. To do that we will have to contact as many as five million people. In the past, to reach and mobilize this many people would have required massive direct mail and telephone canvassing – at a cost of millions of dollars. But we can reach these Americans through a database of email addresses that will cost us a miniscule fraction compared to what mail and telephone canvassing costs. Cost of this nationwide education and mobilization program: $100,000

In order to build our membership, so that we will have a stronger citizen action network to more effectively lobby Congress for our legislative agenda and achieve victory in the project described above, we have just printed 40,000 full-color glossy informational brochures to ship to our chapter leaders for them to distribute. The cost to print these brochures was $6,500. These brochures will help our chapter leaders expand our reach in their local communities, increase our membership, and build their chapters. They will also help us recruit new chapter leaders. By April 15th, we would like to print 150,000 more of these brochures. Cost: $17,500

Congressional Voting Record Research
We are poised to commission an extensive research study of the voting records of Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate on issues relating to national security, terrorism, and the advance of Islamofascism. Our goal is to have the research completed and results posted on our website by June, available for every voter in America to see. Voters will then know which of their elected representatives are voting in the best interests of America’s national security – and which ones aren’t. Cost: $30,000

The total cost for these programs is $195,500. I know that sounds like a lot of money – and it is. But if you think about it, it’s a small price to pay for us to start rolling back the Tide of Islamofascism. The Executive Director, Guy Rodgers, and Brigitte Gabriel are doing fundraising around the country to help bring in the money we need to move boldly forward. But we need your help to reach the goal.

If each of you reading this article will click here to do something…if you will make a choice to take action…if you will make whatever financial contribution you can afford…we’ll have the resources to begin this campaign offensive in earnest.

For example:If 250 of you will give $200… If 350 of you will give $100… If 500 of you will give $50… And if 1,000 of you will give $25… …that will total $135,000. And, of course, if some of you can give more than $200, and more than 1,000 of you were to give $25 that would help us reach our goal even faster! Your generosity combined with the fundraising efforts Guy and Brigitte are engaged in will enable us to reach this goal quickly and fully fund this campaign for the next 120 days.

If you prefer to mail a check rather than give online, you’ll find a link at the end of this article that will take you to a reply form you can print off and mail back to us.

Dear members, friends, and supporters, for too long those in America who are concerned about these issues have been fighting a defensive fight. We must start doing more than exposing or resisting the advances of the Islamic infiltration of America– we must go on the offensive to roll it back and fight for the bedrock values that made America the beacon of hope to the world.
From the day the Executive Director Guy Rodgers joined the ACT team, we have been preparing for this offensive behind the scenes, giving you glimpses along the way. Now it’s time to boldly move forward.

As many of you know, Brigitte is a Christian and has a unique perspective on the threat we face. She lived for seven years in a hole in the ground in what use to be the back yard of her home in Lebanon, coming out only at night to eat grass and weeds and get a much needed drink of water while bullets were being fired just above her head, a victim of Islamic terror. [Watch her videos.] and [read her book] Most of her friends were killed by Islamic militants. She watched helplessly as she lost her beautiful country to radical Islam – She is determined that nothing even approaching that tragedy ever happens to America, her adopted country.

This little Lebanese lady has at great risk, devoted her life to saving America from the same evil that destroyed her country of Lebanon. Remember Lebanon was once as America, a predominantly Christian Democratic Country, and because, as we are, they were deceived, and is now a part of the Nation of Islam. Brigitte has a contract out on her life by the terrorist organization “The American Hamas” and “The Brotherhood of Islam”, as well as several terrorist organizations in the Middle East...and yet she continues to fight for your freedom and your liberty against this evil of mankind. Won’t you join her in a confidential contribution?

Can I count on you to join us, to contribute whatever you can afford, to invest in an effort that will be the first major step in really rolling back the tide of this evil Islamofascism, to invest in a better future for yourself, your loved ones, and your friends?
If you prefer to mail a contribution rather than donating online, please make your check payable to ACT for America and mail it to P.O. Box 6884, Virginia Beach, VA 23456.

Do you have the will? If I didn’t believe you did, I wouldn’t ask for your financial support. Please ACT today. And pass this on to all of your friends.

Thank you for your support, for your love of God and America, for your love of freedom and liberty, and thank you for making a choice that will demonstrate that we do have the will, and we are going to move forward to win this fight, if we don’t, no one will. Remember, along with freedom comes responsibility. Put on the whole armor of God, and as always, onward Christian Soldiers…

Unprovoked Attacks

If you have ever felt like giving in to the hate America rhetoric, that Islam attacked us because of how we treated them. Then you have not read your history book

By de Andréa

The hate America media preys on the ignorant, the sad news is, that the majority of people are ignorant. Or worse yet, they are brainwashed with a lie.

The U.S., all through history when it wasn’t defending itself against Islam, was actually defending Islam.

If you believe that 911 was the first time Islam attacked America and that we deserved it, then this snippet of history is just for you.

The fallacy of grievance based terrorism
The fundamental premise of much scholarly examination and public discourse is that grievances with U.S. policies in the Middle East motivate Islamic terrorism. Such assumptions, thoroughly misunderstand the enemy and its nature. In reality, the conflict is sparked not by grievance but rather by Islamist ideology and the natural rights articulated during the “European Enlightenment” and the recent infiltration into U.S. political culture. Acquiescing to political grievances will not alter the fundamental incompatibility between the precepts of tolerance taught by the Philosopher Locke and current interpretations of Islam: Only Islam's fundamental reform or demise will resolve the conflict, and if one knows what the power is that drives Islam, then one also knows that the reformation of Islam is an oxymoron.

Many scholars mark the post-World War I partition of the Ottoman Empire as the origin of Islamist opposition to the West. The idea that the Middle East would be a tolerant, prosperous contributor to the global environment today if World War I victors had left intact the Ottoman Empire is a premise in the literature accompanying the rise of twentieth-century jihadism. Historian David Fromkin argued in his influential A Peace to End All Peace that present day Muslim unrest is the direct result of Winston Churchill's early twentieth-century decisions. British journalist Robert Fisk also holds British officials responsible although he prefers to blame Arthur Balfour, foreign secretary between 1916 and 1919.

Both authors are wrong, though, to base their theories of grievance on such arbitrary demarcation of eras. The roots of world jihadism date back to the 7th century AD and specifically its opposition to the United States as part of the non-Muslim West were cast long before World War I erupted. The interaction between the United States and Muslim states and societies dates back to American independence. Contemporary jihadism is not the result of accumulated grievance; rather it has for cultural reasons been an integral factor in Islamic societies' interaction with the United States.


The Die was Cast
Almost immediately after America’s independence, the U.S. government found itself in conflict with the Islamic Barbary sheikhdoms of Morocco, Tunis, Algiers, and Tripoli. For centuries, these states filled their coffers by piracy, stealing cargoes, enslaving crew, and collecting ransom. European sea-going nations often entered into treaty and tribute arrangements with the Barbary leaders in order to buy immunity and curtail competition.

In 1784, Moroccan pirates hijacked the U.S. merchant ship Betsy in the Mediterranean and enslaved her crew. A year later, Algerian Muslim pirates seized two more vessels, the Maria from Boston and the Dauphin from Philadelphia. The U.S. ministers to England and France, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson oversaw a peace treaty with Morocco, but the Algerian leadership refused any accommodation. In 1796, President George Washington ordered construction of six warships to form a U.S. navy and to protect U.S. shipping from Barbary pirates.

In 1801, in the wake of an upsurge in piracy/jihadist terrorism, President Thomas Jefferson entered into war with Tripoli, bombarding the city three years later and winning the release of American hostages. Peace did not last. With the U.S. military embroiled in the War of 1812, Algerian pirates again began terrorizing American crewmen and disrupting U.S. trade. They miscalculated. In 1815, President James Madison dispatched a squadron of U.S. Navy frigates, which defeated the pirate fleet and won reparations from Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli.

Many historians consider the Barbary wars a sideshow relative to contemporaneous events such as the French Revolution, Napoleon's conquests, and the War of 1812, but the Barbary wars are significant to today's conflict. Franklin, Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Madison each believed the Barbary wars to be a continuation of the American Revolution. The ground war in North America may have freed the United States from British tyranny, but the Barbary campaign was necessary to win the same freedom of action and commerce within the international community. The episode also crystallized perceptions of Islam and the Ottoman Empire in the American mind. While Americans did not perceive the Barbary wars as a conflict between Christianity and Islam per se, religion was an issue. More importantly the two sides fought, not over theological differences, but rather as a result of the divergent ideologies. Islam is more that a religion it is in fact a theocracy. Washington and Adams referred to the Muslim leaders as "nests of bandits" while Jefferson's and Madison's campaign literature called them "petty tyrants.” The "despotic Turk" became the antithesis of early American republican identity.

What Americans and Europeans saw as piracy, Barbary leaders justified as legitimate jihad. Jefferson related a conversation he had in Paris with Ambassador Abdrahaman of Tripoli who told him that all Christians are sinners in the context of the Qur'an and that it was a Muslim's "right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to enslave as many as they could take as prisoners. Islam gave great incentive to fighting infidels, Abdrahaman explained, because the Qur'an promised that making war against infidels ensured a Muslim paradise after death. Richard O'Brien, the imprisoned captain of the Philadelphia merchantman Dauphin and later the U.S. consul to Algiers, related similar conversations with ‘Ali Hasan, the ruler of Algiers. Ottoman leaders used the same rationale to justify the enslavement and trading of captives from the Balkans, Caucasus, and Ukraine.

The role that jihadi ideology played in the Barbary wars is documented with explicit references to jihad and holy war in the so-called treaties that U.S. officials finely entered into with Muslim rulers. Tunis and Algiers, as the western outposts of the Ottoman Empire, even described themselves to American envoys as the "frontier posts of jihad against European Christianity."

U.S. officials took a conciliatory attitude. Thinking that the North Africans were hypersensitive to the historic conflict between Islam and European Christianity, especially in the context of the expulsion of the Moors from Spain, U.S. officials bent over backwards to deny the religious and ideological nature of the conflict, especially to the Muslims themselves. They thought that religious conflict might jeopardize the commerce that the United States still hoped to find in the Mediterranean. In 1821, President John Quincy Adams was barely able to resist assisting the Greeks in their war of independence when both the American and European publics urged war with the Ottoman Empire. The founders possessed a deep conviction for religious tolerance and proudly explained in the short-lived 1797 treaty with Tripoli that the U.S. was not a Christian state at all but rather one which had no official religion and maintained laws forbidding the prohibition of religion. Perhaps their denial of the religious and ideological nature of the conflict foreshadowed the attitude many Washington policymakers adopt today. Then as now, it has become the basis of a fundamental misunderstanding of the root of the conflict.

The following, is a quote by John Quincy Adams, the sixth president of the United States which clearly shows that in the 1820’s he had a handle on who and what Islam was.

“In the seventh century of the Christian era a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar [i.e., Muhammad] the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an imposter, proclaimed himself as a messenger from heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of Mosaic Law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.... Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant… While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace on earth and good will towards men.” John Quincy Adams

The Barbary conflict was the beginning of continuous U.S. interaction with the Muslim Near and Middle East. While Jefferson and Madison believed that a continuous U.S. military presence in the Mediterranean was necessary to protect U.S. national interests, in 1831, President Andrew Jackson secured a treaty of amity and free trade with the Ottoman Empire leading the secretary of the navy to report seven years later that it was no longer necessary to keep a U.S. fleet in the Mediterranean. Three years after Washington withdrew the squadron; Ottoman privateers began raiding U.S. shipping, forcing the reconstitution of the fleet after the U.S. Civil War.

No longer, though, did the U.S. government feel content to view relations with Muslim governments only through a commercial lens. The Civil War interjected discussion of natural law and freedom into U.S. policy formulation. American missionaries increased their presence in the Muslim Middle East throughout the nineteenth century although Muslim prohibitions on conversion to Christianity led them to focus their efforts more on aid and education than on proselytization. Simultaneously, the Ottoman sultan and other Muslim rulers began to pursue more pronounced repression against both Christians and Jews. Intolerant, Islam gained ground on the Arabian Peninsula and in North Africa.

By 1840, the final year of his administration, and again during his unsuccessful campaign for a second term in 1848, Martin Van Buren expressed concern for the plight of Jews in the Ottoman Empire, which he called "the most anti-Semitic of countries." In the last quarter of the nineteenth century, strife between Muslims and Christians in the Balkans and in Istanbul led President Ulysses Grant to dispatch six warships to the waterways around the city to ensure the safety of Americans. In 1882, President Chester Arthur dispatched the Mediterranean Squadron to Alexandria to help evacuate Americans and Europeans following anti-Christian violence in the city. President Grover Cleveland even proposed an Anglo-American intervention in the Ottoman Empire to assist Armenian Christians against Muslim violence. In 1903, an assassination attempt on the U.S. consul in Beirut amid anti-Christian rioting led President Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt to dispatch marines to the city. A few months later, marines landed in Tangiers after the kidnapping of a Greek businessman from the U.S. consulate there. Behind each incident was Muslim violence toward minority Christian and Jewish communities.

The nineteenth century foreshadowed increasing conflict between the United States and Muslim Middle Eastern countries. The failure of effective Ottoman political reform coupled with the evolution of Islamic reform toward greater Islamism and less tolerance set up a conflict between the American notion that governments rule at the consent of the governed and the dominant attitude among Muslim potentates who subscribed to an intolerant, coercive, anti-Semitic, and anti-Christian ideology.

Twentieth-century Continuity
Into the early twentieth century, successive U.S. administrations sought to remain aloof from Arab and Ottoman politics. President Woodrow Wilson did not include the Ottoman Empire in the U.S. declaration of war against Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, an omission he said was to mitigate the risk of Ottoman retaliation against its Christian or Jewish populations, thereby implying his sense that the Porte saw the United States through a religious rather than just diplomatic lens.

The U.S. played on both sides
During the Cold War, "armed neutrality" could no longer protect U.S. strategic interests. Successive administrations and the State Department pursued a "pro-Arab" policy in the region to stymie the expansion of Soviet influence into those countries. In a January 1945 correspondence, Dean Acheson, secretary of state and chief architect of the U.S. Cold War Soviet containment policy, argued for a pro-Arab tilt to U.S. policy in order to deny the Soviet Union any possible inroads into the region. Successive administrations embraced the policy. Dwight D. Eisenhower sided with Gamal Abdul Nasser against Israel, France, and Great Britain during the 1956 Suez crisis.

While the U.S. government often stayed on the sidelines, in eleven of the twelve major Cold War and immediate post-Cold War conflicts between Muslims and non-Muslims, Muslims and secular forces, or Arabs and non-Arabs, the U.S. government supported the former group. Washington, for example, backed the Afghan mujahideen against the Soviet Red Army in the 1980s and supported Bosnian Muslims against Serbs and Croats.

U.S. administrations have even leaned hard on Israel, preventing the Jewish state's destruction of the Egyptian, Jordanian, and Syrian armies in 1967; ignoring the Israeli government's pleas not to sell state-of-the-art weaponry to Saudi Arabia; and pressuring for concessions to the Palestinian Authority despite its embrace of terrorism. The only exception to Washington's pro-Arab tilt has been U.S. diplomatic intervention in support of Israel at the United Nations and White House commitment to maintain Israel's qualitative military edge.

During the six decades since Washington abandoned its "armed neutrality" policy in favor of deeper relations with Arab states, friction has increased between U.S. officials and Islamist ideologues. The pro-Arab tilt Washington pursued during the Cold War to stymie Soviet intrigues and maintain energy security, meant partnership with non-democratic regimes and often corrupt rulers in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, and the Persian Gulf emirates.

Islamists and other opposition groups argued that Washington should support the people and not autocrats. But such rhetoric is laid bare by the antagonism that U.S. support for Israel engendered among many of these self-professed democrats. Israel is the only democracy in the region. Its citizens, 17 percent of whom are Muslim, enjoy basic civil liberties regardless of their faith and, even in the West Bank, enjoy a standard of living far superior to that of Egyptians and Jordanians.

Jihadi Antipathy
Both the United States and Israel have become the focus of Islamists' irrational enmity as Islamist thinkers and Arab demagogues deflect any internal responsibility for Muslim countries' woes. This was a common theme both of Sayyid Qutb, the leading Muslim Brotherhood ideologue and, later, Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden.

In Knowing the Enemy, Mary Habeck, a professor of military history at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies, documents how Qutb and bin Laden spread a message that the decline of majority Muslim polities is not the result of flaws within Islam itself but is instead the deliberate effort of the United States and the Jews. Today Pakistani madrassas (Islamic schools) alone spin out more than one million graduates per year steeped in jihadi aggressive terror ideology.

Underlying much basic jihadi Islamic thought is antipathy toward democracy. Both Qutb and bin Laden argued that democracy is not a solution to inequity and corruption in Islamic societies. In a video that marked the sixth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, bin Laden said, "It has now become clear to you and the entire world the impotence of the democratic system and how it plays with the interest of the peoples and their bloody sacrificing of soldiers and populations to achieve the interests of major corporations."

While some Islamists—such as the Muslim Brotherhood both in Egypt and now infiltrated here in America or Muhammad Khatami in Iran—speak of their embrace of democracy, seldom do they include Enlightenment concepts such as tolerance, rule-of-law, and property rights. They do not accept, as did the U.S. founding fathers, that people are endowed with both the natural right to freedom from coercion and the liberty to improve their lives. In practice, then, regardless of their rhetoric, they not only eschew democracy they will overthrow it.

It is essential that the grand strategy of the United States addresses this basic conflict of interest. The present conflict is not new. And it is religious. Believing that only a few "rogue extremists" have misappropriated the religion is both naïve and counterfactual. U.S. and Western leaders must be cognizant of the reality that jihadist are a religious phenomenon that has grown popular and powerful enough to threaten the continued progress of the American experiment and the European Enlightenment, and we also recognize that it is commanded by the Quran, and therefore will always be the agenda of Islam.

In the new grand strategy to defeat Islamic jihadism, America may try to campaign, through its scholars and theologians if appropriate, to encourage and facilitate imams and other Islamic religious authority figures to reform Islam in a forward direction, one that breaks from the past and encourages tolerance, the rule of law, free inquiry, and free markets but it is an effort in futility, because Islam would not just have to reform, it would have to give up its entire religion.

How should the United States revitalize its strategy? At home, the U.S. government must first remove the Muslims from our country. Would we have allowed, or better yet, did we allow, Nazis in our country during the Second War? Of course not. Then we need to better educate and explain the conflict to the general audience. Education at all levels should inculcate U.S. citizens in the history, philosophy, mechanics, virtues, responsibilities, and achievements of the Western approach to freedom, liberty, and the free market. Tolerance and diversity does not mean the acceptance of oppression and tyranny. Such an effort would entail reinstalling the truth of this subject matter into the curricula of public schools and disallow the Muslim propaganda.

The strategic leadership of the nation should redirect the public education effort, much as the founders did in the eighteenth century. The Federalist Papers, generally attributed to James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay, are prototypical examples of effective strategic communications that aimed, among other things, to create a government strong enough to defend itself against the Barbary pirates.

Washington should not apologize for supporting regional countries that seek peace, prosperity, and the improved well-being of their citizens. To do otherwise fuels the Muslim jihadi rhetoric that seeks to oppress people throughout the world.

Another requirement is for the West to embark on, is a radical program to redefine how its economies obtain and distribute energy. Former director of Central Intelligence R. James Woolsey argues that denying Jihadists the use of oil as a weapon against the United States and the West should be Washington's highest priority.

Finally, the history of U.S. interaction with Muslim politics shows military weakness and the inability to project. The sign of weakness has consistently led jihadist Muslim and kleptocrats to launch attacks against the U.S. and our interests.

THE BOTTOM LINE: If you were one of these Hate America hippies, I hope this little bit of factual history changes your course just a tad. If however you have been programmed by the academic hate America gurus then no amount of documented facts are likely to help.

May God help us…

The Will To Survive part I


Do we have the will to survive, or will we just continue in our ignorance to eventually lose the only true free nation on earth.

By de Andréa
February 11, 2008

Over the past several weeks, I posted articles about:
The Archbishop of Canterbury stating that the imposition of Sharia law in Great Britain is now “unavoidable,” and would be beneficial for “social cohesion.”

How Global Banks Romance Islam We are changing our international banking rules to Sharia rules.

A Des Moines, Iowa imam who gave the opening prayer at the Iowa 2008 legislative session, in which he called on Allah to “give us victory over those who disbelieve” – meaning victory over “infidels.”

America Begs How Bush has been reduced to a beggar in the House of Saud.

A Muslim demonstration in an American city, in which Muslims trampled the American flag while proclaiming allegiance only to Allah and Islamic law.

Al Qaeda aggressively using the Internet to recruit German Turkish Muslims to go to Pakistan to train to be terrorists.

New York legislation that has been introduced to protect authors from being harassed and intimidated by Muslims who are filing libel lawsuits in foreign courts.

How Islam is being advanced in our public schools, through distorted and sanitized depictions of it that gloss over or deny the Qu’ran’s repeated commands to subjugate and kill “infidels.”

British Bishop Dr. Michael Nazir-Ali’s has announced that there are now “no-go zones” in Great Britain, where non-Muslims dare not go under threat of violence. As a result, the Bishop has received death threats from Muslim extremists. How al Qaeda is re-focusing its attention from Iraq to planning for new terrorist attacks in Europe and in the United States.

If I reported on every instance, of the continued and growing threat of Islamic terrorism and cultural jihad, on the west, I could fill your email boxes every day with dozens and dozens of reports. Once one begins seeing what is happening around us, it’s as if scales drop from the eyes, and what we once were oblivious to we now see with clarity. And what we see is that we face a determined, tenacious foe that is ultimately more dangerous to the peace, prosperity and liberty of the world than Nazism or Communism ever was.

Lee Harris, reports in his recent book
The Suicide of Reason: Radical Islam’s Threat to the West, argues convincingly that one of the reasons “radical Islam” is such a looming and powerful threat is because most people in the West, including our government leaders, fail to understand the nature of the threat and lack the will to resist it. On page 244 he states: “We have come to believe that we are invulnerable, that we have accumulated such power and wealth that it is unimaginable that our dominance could be challenged.”

He goes on to say that the standard “moral outrage” response from the West whenever a terrorist act occurs is literally dangerous, in that it “deludes us into thinking it has any appreciable effect... It doesn’t.” (p. 261).

He notes, correctly, that Islamists see the world as “us” vs. “them” – “believers” vs. “infidels” – and that the “believers” are dedicated to disrupting the current “world order” by creating chaos and disorder, so that through that chaos they can seize “historical momentum” to advance Islam through jihad.

This is why they engage in terrorism – not because such acts will necessarily bring down governments (though in Spain they in fact did), but they create fear, disorder and potential anarchy – golden opportunities for jihad to advance.

Harris writes, “The Jihadists are not interested in winning in our sense of the word. They can succeed simply by making the present world order unworkable; by creating conditions in which politics as usual is no longer an option…” (p. 229). “Muslims believe that by destroying the Western status quo, they will be ushering in a golden age of human happiness.” (p. 262).

We engage in the ultimate act of self-deception if we believe that Muslims can be “reasoned with.” They can’t. They not only think different things than we do, they think differently. Their view of the world is so foreign to us that it’s difficult, if not impossible, for many in the West to understand why they do what they do.

Towards the end of the book Harris argues that, if our enlightened civilization is to survive, we must be prepared – and have the will – to defend our way of life. But he observes that societies that achieve our level of peace, prosperity, and rationality typically have a very hard time mustering the will to resist satanically driven threats to their existence.

Muslims around the world believe that America does not have the will to resist jihad, and that victory for Allah is inevitable. That they believe this gives them strength, patience and determination to fight a war that they acknowledge they may not see its successful conclusion – the domination of the world by Islam – for decades if not centuries. Harris notes, “While we think little further than our retirement, they think in terms of centuries…” (p. 260).

THE BOTTOM LINE: The good news is this -- the will to fight for our nation’s security and founding values does not need to be shared by all, or even most Americans. History demonstrates that an organized, informed, and committed minority of Americans, a minority who have the will, can change the course of the nation.

Do we have the will to vigorously defend the values of Western Civilization that has produced the greatest peace, prosperity and liberty the world has ever known?

Do we have the will to fight for our safety, security, liberty, peace, and prosperity, for ourselves now, and for the children and grandchildren who will follow us?


If you do than I suggest that you start by joining forces with Brigitte Gabriel and the members of ACT! for America and American Congress for Truth, and resist the deceptive infiltration and the rising tide of Islamofascism?
