Townhall

About 16 years ago when I was still in Virginia, I met a customer of mine who gave me a book discussing the very same thing this article is addressing. He was the author of that book.
 
I read the 400+ page book and was intrigued by the facts presented by him after considerable research. We became friends and he would come to talk to me, sometimes more than an hour, while I was still working. I still have that book but he died a few years later due to cancer.
 
What this article and that book were talking about, imposing Sharia law on American society and American people, I think, was the primary reason why Trump and his neoconservative advisors wanted to impose travel bans on people from seven muslim countries. That matter is still being bogged down in the court.
 
Europe‘s problem, particularly France and Germany, has started with its acceptance of millions of muslim refugees displaced by America’s war against Syria’s president, Bashar al-Assad, and America’s intention to impose a new and pro-America government in Syria.
 
Leaders in Europe took these refugees because of PC and it is the people in Europe will pay for that decision.
 
I have no doubt that America is their primary target and they will do their best to infiltrate American schools, civil organizations and local governments.

Islam 1: Christianity 0 September 14, 2010

In the first run of the 21st century version of the religious war, Christianity lost to Islam in the battle ground in Florida.

Under the cloak of “protecting the troops,” Obama once again showed his appeasing to Muslims instinct and kowtow to Islam one more time.

One step at the time, the Sharia law is gaining ground on the soil of the United States as American value is pushing aside by Obama.

The president  of the United States threw the US Constitution on the ground and gave in to the threat of Muslims.

Freedom of Speech September 9, 2010

No one gives it a damn  if someone burns an American flag or a bible. That’s freedom of speech, according to the high court.

If someone try to burn a Koran or a bunch of Korans, according to Obama, Hillary, Petraeus and a bunch of others, it becomes a national security issue.

Now Imam Rauf has said that unless the mosque is built at the site in the Lower Manhattan, “The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack.” And, if you read between the lines, American heads here in the US and abroad will roll.

Hmm.., Is that a threat to the American people?

Let’s raise the national security threat level to orange then, Obama.

What does this have to say about the religion of Islam? And more importantly what does this have to say about the mood of American people who have had it up to their eyes with the threats from the so-called religion of the peace.

What I do not understand is:

  • How come the leaders of Arab countries didn’t come out and ask Muslims in the world to tone it down?
  • How come the so-called moderate Imams all over the world  in the world didn’t ask their followers to respect majority of American people’s will?
  • How come the so-called moderate Imams all over the world or Muslim leaders didn’t ask Imam Rauf to move the Cordoba House to a different location?
  • How come Obama didn’t call the leaders of the Muslim countries and tell them that Freedom of Speech is the Law of the land here and is protected by the constitution of the United States?
  • How come Hillary Clinton and Ambassadors to the Muslim countries didn’t call these Muslim nations and educate these Muslim leaders of the American way of life and ask them to come out and ask the radicals, as Imam Rauf has put it, to put their saif, or suicide bombs, down for a change?

Now you see how big a mess Obama did with his”right ot build”  iftar speech in front of many Muslims in the White House. He really kicked it up a notch, didn’t he?

I say Obama is a Muslim in front of other Muslims. At least he acted as a Muslim and seek approval from his fellow Muslim brothers at the White House iftar dinner.
The next day when asked of his comment he tried to have it both ways and said that he didn’t question the “wisdom” of building a mosque so close to ground zero. May I ask you Obama, whose wisdom did you refer to? Surely you didn’t question the wisdom of Muslims, did you?

Are there anyone out there looking for world peace?

Majority of New Yorkers against the Mosque September 3, 2010

Most of The New Yorkers are against the Ground Zero mosque no matter what the Imam calls it: Community Center, Cordoba House, Park 51, or whatever. Most of the New Yorkers are against the ground zero mosque because of what the Imam said about Bin Laden, Hamas and Islam and what he believes.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/03/nyregion/03poll.html?_r=1&th=&adxnnl=1&emc=th&adxnnlx=1283516058-0eGbD5MZiu4r2xQ+qf7DKw

You want to know the difference between the US and some Muslim nations:

Most of the people in the US debate the wisdom of building a mosque so close to Ground Zero. In some corners of the Muslim world, people will burn the building down and kill the promoters if they do not like the mosque.

That’s the difference. And it is sad to note that even the so-called moderate Muslims are silent on the killings among the Muslims.

Cordoba House or Park 51? August 25, 2010

Why did Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf changed the name of Ground Zero Mosque from “Cordoba  House” to “Park 51?”

Hmm, I wonder? Was it because it has something to do with the meaning of Cordoba in the minds of billion Muslims in the world?

Yes, it does. It turned out that the city of Cordoba in Southern Spain was captured in 711 by Muslim army and subsequently became the capital of the region under the control of Caliphate al-Andalus. It symbolizes the dominance of Islam over this region for more than 300 years.

And what did Muslim did when they took over the city of Cordoba? They knocked down a church and built a mosque; the so-called “The Great Mosque of Cordoba” over the site of the church.

Do you see the similarity here?

Muslims knocked down the twin towers and build a mosque 2 blocks away?

Obama and Ground Zero Mosque August 6, 2010

Will Obama speak out against the construction of a Muslim mosque and Islam activity center called Cordoba House two blocks from ground zero in NY’s financial district?He won’t because he’s a Muslim in his heart.

I am sure that NY and NJ fire fighters have something to say about this place because 9-11 was such a hideous attack on innocent people and what United States stands for. Unfortunately many fire fighters died trying to save other innocent people’s lives. All for the name of a religion! (Anyone wishing for world peace should talk to these people.)

One of my long time customers has written a book about how Muslims wanted to take over the United States and if he’s still alive today would have a lot to say about this issue.

I wonder:

How many fire fighters will come to the rescue if the Cordoba House is caught on fire?

What other activities will the proposed new mosque be used for behind closed doors?

  • Hmm, may be an observation deck to see the new buildings at ground zero.
  • Hmm, may be they’ll preach Sharia to other Americans.

Will the money we spend at gas pumps finds its way to Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf via Saudi, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, etc. who is looking for $100 million to build this mosque?

Do you care to spare a few bucks, brother?

Stories of my two customers July 30, 2010

During the past several weeks, I said goodbye to two of my long time customers: one died of heart attack and the other one went back to Lebanon.

I became acquaintanted with both gentlemen shortly after 9-11.

The first gentleman was in his late 50’s: a white, defense lawyer who came to NV from Florida. He regularly carried a hand gun with him when he came to my restaurant. He was a great talker often stayed in the dining room and talk to me for more than half an hour at a time. He was the one who first warned me about the pervasive presence of Muslims in the United States. He gave me a 700-page book he wrote on that subject and listed hundreds of references on how Muslims are trying to exert influences on government policies, local school board regulations and news media reporting. He also in his book gave a very detailed account of the conflicts between Arabs and Christians dating back hundreds of years in the past. He was divorced and lived by himself. He often came to our restaurant with a young Latino woman and her baby daughter who cleaned the house for him. He had high blood pressure, diabetic and takes many pills every day.

For many months no one at the restaurant had see him. I was told that he got ill and had difficulty walking. He would still send this young Latino woman with her now school-age daughter to buy food for him. Recently I found out he had passed away but I still remembered his voice and his cheerful personality. I also had him to thank for for making me aware of the struggles between Muslims and Christians in light of the 9-11 tragedy.

The second gentleman came to the United States from Lebanon. He was in his early 30’s when I first met him a month after 9-11 when he came to eat at my restaurant.  He asked me about the costs of opening a restaurant in the area and that’s how we got to know each other. At that time, he lived in Arlington with his Lebanese wife and three children: two boys and a girl and worked as a sales person at a company near the Dulles Airport. As we got to know each other, we talked about Muslims, Islam, 9-11, Iraq war and Israel-Palestinian conflict. I told him that I was concerned about Al Qaeda coming to the United States to wreak havoc in NY or Washington DC. He said that Al Qaeda would stay in the Middle East because American soldiers had occupied a piece of land which belongs to Muslims. He was the one who told me that conditions in Middle East would deteriorate and the situation would continue until Americans are driven out of Iraq. He was very negative about United States’ foreign policy and hated Bush for sending troops to Iraq. I could sense the century-old animosity between Muslims and Christians dating back from crusaders period a thousand years ago. It was enlightening to me to be able to get a different perspective on this age-old conflict and it reminded me of the fact that there would be no ending in sight of what to come in the coming years.

With the election of the first black president in the history of U.S., he told me that he was very pleased  to see that Obama had all the right messages to Muslims in the world and he particularly liked the appeasing tone of Obama’s plead for new relationship with Arabs. The happy time for him turned out to be short-lived.

With U.S. economy worsening and jobs starting to disappear, he was laid off from his Dulles job. He then worked as used car salesman but could make a half decent wage to make a living. He quit his car salesman job and commuted to Germantown because he found a job there. He them moved his family to Germantown but still made the 40 miles trip to my restaurant once a while because his children, now in their teens, liked our food. We continued our conversations on Islam, American foreign policy in the Middle East and the merit of Iraq war. Although he had soften his stance on the Iraq war but he still couldn’t get over with what he called the invasion.

About three weeks ago, he called me and said he wanted to meet me again. When I met his family at my restaurant, he said that this will be the last time he’ll see me because he is taking his family back to Lebanon for good. He was totally disgusted with Obama and lost confidence in the United States. He was laid off again and he put the blame squarely on Obama: the recession, the health care take-over, the Afghan war and the lousy economy. He was upset because Obama didn’t pay attention to the economy. He didn’t like the escalation of the Afghan war because he didn’t see the need for it. He didn’t like American’s policy on Israel because the peace is no where in sight. He also didn’t like the huge deficits and mounting national debt because he didn’t like that burden on his children.

With his and his children’s American dreams dead, he said that the United States is going downhill and he didn’t like his children to face the horrible burden. He had moved back to Lebanon because he saw light at the end of the tunnel in the Middle East: largely because of high oil prices for years to come. With that, living standards have improved compared to 20 some years ago when he first came to the United States. With higher oil prices, more jobs become available and he liked his chances back home. He also liked the chance for his children too.

Well, two customers: a white American and a Muslim, with two different stories.

I’ll miss them.

Keep Yousef in the United States June 28, 2010

Mosab Hassan Yousef was born in Palestine.

Yousef’s father is a founding member of Hamas.

Yousef was trained as a terrorist when he was a young boy.

At 17, Yousef was captured off the street of Palestine by Israel soldier.

Yousef was kept captive and tortured because his father was a leader of Hamas.

Yousef hated Israel but through the examining his life and his family’s policies turned into an informer for Shin Bet; Israel’s Internal Security Services.

Yousef went through a “crazy transformation” from hating Israel to working for Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency) and from Islam to Christianity.

Yousef worked for Shin Bet for 10 years and through his position kept his father’s name off Israeli’s assassination list.

Yousef published a book called “Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices” in March 2010.

Yousef reveals in the book that he helped Israel prove that Yasser Arafat was using American aid money to fund terrorism.

He also helped Israel captured terrorist leaders such as Ibrahim Hamed, Marwan Barghouti and Abdullah Barghouti.

Yousef’s father disowned Yousef earlier this year because of the shame Yousef bought to his family and became a target of Hamas.

Yousef applied for political asylum with the Department of Homeland Security for obvious reasons but his application was denied because DHS thought he is a threat to US security.

DHS lawyer Kerri Calcador cited an incident where Yousef drove a suicide bomber from one location to another location inside the Palestine as proof that Yousef engaged in terrorist activity.

Yousef now is facing deportation back to Hamas and a court date with an immigration judge in San Diego on Wednesday.

Questions:

Who gave the order to deny Yousef’s political asylum? Obama?

What were the grounds for the denial?

Who ordered Kerri Calcador to prosecute Yousef?

Is Kerri Calcador a Democrat?

Obama gave Hamas $1 billion dollars. Why? Isn’t Hamas a terrorist organization with Iranian ties?

Obama has ordered secret meetings with Hamas; what did they talk about?

What were the purposes of these meeting?

Who attended these meetings and under who’s order were these meeting took place?

Did Hamas at these meetings ask for Yousef returned to Palestine?

Was this request one of the conditions for allowing the United States continuing discussion with the Hamas?

Will Yousef be killed by Hamas if he is deported to Palestine?

What messages did Obama want to convey to the Israelis and Muslims?

What’s going on with this Obama?

The only answer I could come up with is:

Obama is a Muslim and Obama hates Jews in Israel.

What do you have to say?

Islam, Iran and Middle East Regional Conflict February 28, 2010

Anyone who is interested in knowing a little more about Islam, Iran and the regional conflict in Middle East should read this Op-Ed piece in New York Times by Efraim Karsh.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/28/opinion/28karsh.html

I was surprised to read such a honest discussion about the clashes among Muslims and realized that there is little hope to achieve peace in the Middle East as long as Israel remains a country there.

No government officials in the public will call this a religious war but the fact of the matter is that it has been and will continue to be a religious war whether we like it or not.

Iraq is gradually becoming a democratic state thanks to President G.W. Bush’s military intervention. If Iraqis can learn how to govern their divided country and stay the course of democracy, 50 years from now, Iraqis will mark U.S. and allies invasion as the most important turning point of their new country’s recent history. By that time, planting the seed of democracy in the Middle East will be President G. W. Bush’s lasting achievement in the history.

The U.S. may also win over another friend who has one of the largest oil reserves in the world.

Is a war with Iran next? Will America be forced into a war before Iran is capable of deploying nuclear weapons?

It won’t happen if Democrats, such as BHO, Pelosi and Reid, are in power. Israel may wait until a Republican president is elected in 3 years.

Islam, the United States and Peace November 3, 2009

Islam and the United States

 

The current administration has announced that the U.S. will leave Iraq by the end of 2011. It is dragging its feet on the request for 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan by General McChrystal. Pakistan is practicing democracy but the region is powder cake and the situation there could erupt into chaos anytime.

 

So let’s take a look of this map and see what’s happening over there in recent days?

Map of Middle East and Central Asia

 

  • Six UN staff members at a UN guesthouse in Kabul were killed by Taliban militant on Oct. 28.
  • On Oct. 25, two car bombs on October 25 killed more than 150 people and injured nearly 1,000 in Baghdad. The bombs heavily damaged Iraq’s Justice Ministry building.
  • The Peshawar region in northwestern Pakistan suffered great damage from a car bomb on October 28. More than 90 people died. Two weeks earlier, Taliban insurgents launched an attack against the headquarters of the Pakistani army. The militant kidnapped 33 hostages; killing three, before Pakistani soldiers stormed the place, shot the militant dead and freed the other 30 people.
  • Then there is Iran which openly ridicules the U.S., secretly develops nuclear weapon capabilities and vows to wipe Israel from the map of the world. Iran has agreed to open its facilities for UN inspection. But do you believe for one minute that Iran will ever abandon its research and development of a nuclear weapon? No way!

What’s going on over there? Why are there so many killings and so much violence? Are the insurgents or freedom fighters from their perspective targeting the US soldiers? Are Muslims killing other Muslims? Should the U.S. stay the course set by Bush and take fighting away from the homeland to where anti-America sentiment originates from? Or should the U.S. leave the volatile region to minimize short term suffering but face the long term threat of enemies taking their fight to the U.S. soil?

There are about 1.6 to 1.8 billion Muslims in every country of the world. Even if only 0.1% of them take Qur’an’s scripture literally, we are talking about 1.6 million people who rather like to see the entire world under the rule of Islam, or a religion of the sword, either by peaceful means or by force. Of course the possibility of this ever comes true is nil at best, the process will create instabilities all over the world for generations.

The current president has a Muslim middle name and may have a deeper understanding of the true meaning of Qur’an. He has, on behalf on every Americans, apologized to the world for past U.S. presidents’ unilateral actions against other nations. He has obviously sided with his Arabic friends and isolated Israel into a corner. He has opened his arms to Iran, arguably the only enemy of the U.S., with a peaceful gesture. What is he trying to achieve by asking for forgiveness? Is this the basis of his foreign policy with respect to Muslim countries?

A more important question is: will the submissive gesture work with Muslims? Does who still remember the Battle in Mogadishu of 1993 where many U.S. soldiers were killed by Somalia militias? Following the defeat, instead of regroup and reengage the enemy, Clinton decided to withdraw U.S. soldiers from Somalia. This submissive action energized Muslim militant groups and was disparaged by Al-Qaeda and bin Laden. Will the insurgents see this as an opportunity to expand their reach and increase their infiltration into the US soil as evident by the recent arrest of several groups of Muslim youths by FBI? I bet that not very many people pay attention to what the current threat level is. Homeland Security becomes synonymous to inconvenience at the airport. It has been peaceful since 9-11 in the U.S., hasn’t it? The FBI and CIA are working together and they will do their jobs to snatch up bad guys, won’t they? And most people have largely forgotten about the horrific images of 9-11 other than a short ceremony at Ground Zero and a few speeches by politicians on its anniversary. Why would anyone want to remember that horrible moment?

Americans have a short memory. Americans also has a tendency to pay more attention to what will happen in the near future; be it in the business world or national security. The insurgents however are the patient people. They have a very long term perspective. They plan when the U.S. is nervous and cautious. They attack when the U.S. is complacent. They are learning from their mistakes and they are regrouping to plan their next move. They will avoid their previous mistakes and they will have more than one group studying what is the best way to achieve their goals.

 

We better watch out for 9-11 may happen soon.
