Militant Islam is Still a Threat
and the threat is constantly growing
Countries such as the United States, Canada and England, have a huge problem with Islamic terrorists,
if not Islam itself, and the problem is going to get worse.
DHS Adviser: 'Inevitable that 'Caliphate' Returns'. A controversial senior adviser to
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is receiving criticism for tweeting that the recent
takeover of Iraqi cities by a violent terror group is proof that a Muslim "caliphate" is making an
"inevitable" return. Mohamed Elibiary, a controversial figure and member of DHS's Homeland
Security Advisory Council (HSAC), discussed what he described as the "inevitable" return of a
Muslim caliphate Friday on Twitter. [...] Elibiary, in his more recent comments, went on to
claims that conservatives "misread" the 9/11 terror attacks and "should reassess" their "belligerence."
FBI Docs: Alleged Terrorist
Training Compound Discovered in Rural Texas. The Clarion Project has unearthed Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site
network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for
about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a
Foreign Terrorist Organization. MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to radical Pakistani Muslim cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani.
What Will It Take? "Today," writes Larry Kelley in his sobering book Lessons
from Fallen Civilizations, "millions of militant Muslims awake every morning plotting the destruction of the US. Many are among us."
And there will be more, if [recent] reports of fast-tracking the citizenship applications of large numbers of Muslim immigrants are reliable, as they
appear to be.
Keeping Our Heads in the Sand after Boston.
The Obama administration's policy banning references to "Islamic extremism" and "jihad" in discussions about terrorism drew criticism during the House
Homeland Security Committee hearing on the Boston Marathon bombings. The bombings "should again teach us that the enemy we face is violent Islamist
extremism, not just al Qaida," said former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman. "Osama bin Laden is dead. And the remaining leadership of al Qaida is
on the run, but the ideology of violent Islamist extremism is rapidly spreading."
Terror agents walk among us. A preliminary report issued by the U.S.
House Committee on Homeland Security estimates that there could be "hundreds, maybe even thousands" of Hezbollah agents operating in the United States
and specifically in New York City. The report issued following last month's hearings says that the exact number of operatives is hard to determine.
The enemy within:
Multicultural left ignores our homegrown terrorists. Radical Islam threatens American
democracy. It is slowly subverting America from within and without. If it is not stopped,
U.S. civilization is doomed. ... Yet when anyone tries to put a spotlight on the growth of domestic
Muslim extremism, liberals, Islamic lobby groups and their fellow travelers cry "Islamophobia" and
"racism." The latest example was the congressional hearing held by Rep. Peter King, New York
Republican, who dared to examine how some U.S. Muslim youth are being radicalized and recruited by
The Sword & Shield to Stop the Islamization of
America. We face a grave threat — the Muslims are infiltrating our country and taking
over. We seem powerless to resist: Our governments won't acknowledge the threat; we are told Muslims
have "constitutional rights" to come here, proselytize everywhere, build mosques, and implement shariah
in their communities and in the public square; and our governments are letting them do it.
The Muslims seek to replace our Constitution with shariah — their totalitarian political, economic,
military, social & legal system — with the goal of incorporating our Country into a global Islamic
Survey: Nearly 1 in 3 US
Somalis live in Minnesota. Nearly one in three people with Somali ancestry in the United States
now live in the Minnesota, which has the largest concentration in the country, according to government data
released Tuesday [12/14/2010].
Muslim Enclaves U.S.A.
It seems almost unthinkable, but Islamist groups are, as we speak, hard at work creating Muslim
states-within-states in the U.S. Indeed, this process has been unfolding for a long time
across the Western world, through the creation of isolated Muslim enclaves in both rural and urban
areas, as well as through the designation of "no-go zones" where governments admit to having little
authority over Muslims living there, essentially leaving them to function as autonomous regions.
The Muslim Brotherhood is leading the way for radical Muslims to infiltrate American society and government. Their goal is
simple: control the United States and impose Shariah law. ... [This is] the Brotherhood's five-phase plan
for dominating America:
· Phase I: Establish an elite Muslim Leadership and raise Islamicist consciousness in the community;
· Phase II: Create Islamic institutions that the leadership can control and form autonomous Muslim enclaves;
· Phase III: Infiltrate America's political and social institutions forming a shadow state; escalate conversions; manipulate mass media to remove language offensive to Islam;
· Phase IV: Open hostile public confrontation over U.S. policies, riot, make militant demands for special rights and accommodations;
· Phase V: Wage final conflict and overthrow (jihad).
According to Sperry and Gaubatz, the consensus among counterterrorism officials is that the North American
Brotherhood is already in Phase III.
FBI watching for 'homegrown'
terrorists. Eight years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks — and just days
after a terror plot was thwarted in Texas — the nation's top anti-terrorist officials told
Congress on Wednesday [9/30/2009] that they are as worried about "homegrown" terrorists as they are about
threats from abroad.
U.S.A.. If a major homegrown terrorist attack happens on U.S. soil in the coming years, 2009 will
be looked at as the year when the warning signs were missed. According to the Rand Corporation, the U.S.
has experienced 30 homegrown terrorism plots since 9/11. One-third of these occurred in 2009; a frightening
spike that warrants more attention than it is currently being given by public officials.
Movement Runs U.S. Charter Schools. A secretive foreign network of Islamic radicals now operates
dozens of charter schools — which receive government money but are not required to adopt a
state-approved curriculum — on U.S. soil. The inspirer of this conspiratorial effort is
Fethullah Gülen, who directs a major Islamist movement in Turkey and the Turkish Diaspora but lives
in the United States. He is number thirteen among the world's "50 most influential Muslims,"
according to one prominent listing.
Islam Bashers Repent.
A recent report from the FBI estimates that of the 2000 mosques in the United States, 10% preach Jihad.
Welcome to the religion of peace as it is invading the land of the free to make it the land of submission.
This is not some Islam-hating crackpot group reporting. It is the FBI, an agency known for its bending
backward to be politically correct in tune with the rest of the administration.
Penetration Even At The
Pentagon: Muslim Spies Setting Muslim Policy. The internal threat from Muslim extremists
in the military extends to high-level Defense Department aides who have undermined military policy. In
fact, one top Muslim adviser pushed out an intelligence analyst who warned of the sudden jihad syndrome that
led to the Fort Hood terrorist attack.
of Muslims rally, pray at Capitol. Organizers from Dar-ul-Islam, a mosque in Elizabeth, N.J., had
estimated that 50,000 Muslims might show up for the event... "This is definitely historic," said
Amina Haqq of New York as she walked to the fenced-in site at the west front of the Capitol. "I am
glad I lived long enough to see this. Islam is part of America. It is not a Judeo-Christian
society; it is a Judeo-Christian-Muslim society."
and Politics Mix at Islam Rally on Captiol Hill. A Muslim prayer gathering on Capitol Hill on Friday [9/25/2009]
was attended by maybe a tenth of the 50,000 people organizers were expecting. The event's PR was even less
successful than its attendance, with conservative media outlets claiming that the event's two main organizers had
a history of defending terrorism, making anti-Semitic comments, and expressing anti-American views.
What I Saw
at the (Muslim Prayer) Revolution. Visitors to Washington D.C. today got to hear what
residents in Hamtramck and Dearborn, Michigan, as well as areas of London, Amsterdam and other Western cities already
endure five times a day: The sound of amplified Muslim prayers lifted to Allah. This time, the prayers
reverberated over America's front lawn as some 2,000 Muslims gathered for the Jummah Prayer on Capitol Hill: A
Day of Islamic Unity. Promoters had planned for 50,000 but came nowhere near that.
Deception. If you are an enemy of
America seeking her destruction, you would add to your pursuit of nuclear, biological and chemical weapons the undermining
of this nation from within. You would do this largely through deception, putting on a peaceful face while subtly
plotting ways to bring America down. That tactic was on display last Friday [9/25/2009] in Washington as a crowd
estimated at 3,000 Muslims gathered to pray.
British Lion Muzzled. Britain is
sinking fast, and in too many ways its government is its people's worst enemy. Jihadists struck London
on July 7, 2005 and Glasgow on June 29, 2007, and many still operate in Britain — but
how bad is it now? To begin finding out, I spent the last week in London, visiting mosques and
discussing the situation with locals. What I saw wasn't shocking, but quite depressing.
The signs of Sharia in Dearborn Michigan.
We ask you, is it a coincidence that the city with the highest percentage of Muslims in the United States is the city
where Christianity is not allowed to be represented (let alone preached) on a public sidewalk? Is it coincidence
that in this city, people will say "No way!" when we say "This is the United States of America"? Is this what will
happen when Islam takes over the United States?
or truth: Terror training camps in the U.S.. Robert Spencer lives in seclusion. That's because
he's spent the last several years exposing the jihadist threat in the United States, and it's usually a good idea not to
let the crazies know where you live. Now, in Human Events, Spencer defends a documentary film on U.S.-based terror
training camps that CBS News calls "sensationalistic."
Terror Training Camps On American Soil.
In 2006, the Department of Justice reported that Jamaat ul-Fuqra "has more than 35 suspected communes and more than
3,000 members spread across the United States, all in support of one goal: the purification of Islam through
violence." That means, of course, violence against unbelievers. Yet despite the fact that Justice and
the DHS are obviously aware of what is going on, Jamaat ul-Fuqra continues to operate, relatively unhindered, in
the United States. A new documentary from the Christian Action Network, Homegrown Jihad: The
Terrorist Camps Around the U.S., tells the whole shocking story.
Why Obama is
losing The Third Jihad. As I pen these words not more than sixty miles north of where I sit, a radical
Islamist breeding ground is churning out hate, weapons training, and radical Wahabi indoctrination. To date
President Barack Obama's administration has done zero about it.
Decries 'the Hell of Living in America'. As the FBI has ongoing investigations in numerous cities
across the country looking into the disappearances of possibly dozens of young Somali men who have left the country
to presumably join the jihad and train in terror camps back home, attention has recently been focused on one Minneapolis
imam. Hassan Mohamud (Jamici) has been singled out by some in that community as being one of the radicalization
influences in the Twin Cities.
The words "islam" and "Muslim" are conspicuously
absent from this story: FBI raids three Minneapolis money-transfer shops. Federal
agents raided three Minneapolis money transfer businesses that mainly serve the Somali community Wednesday [4/8/2009],
seeking records of financial transactions to several African and Middle East countries. E.K. Wilson, a special
agent for the FBI in Minneapolis, confirmed that agents searched the businesses on the city's south side to track money
transactions, but wouldn't disclose any further details.
Somali Pirates Tied to
Jihad. The latest crisis off the coast of Africa where Somali pirates hijacked a US flag ship is not
something that suddenly materialized out of thin air.
US facing home-grown Islamic terror threat. Officials say a second
generation of Somali immigrants is becoming increasingly radicalised and could pose a growing threat to security.
The warnings come amid the revelation that 20 young Somali American men who returned to their war-torn homeland have
been radicalised by a group linked to al-Qaeda.
U.S. Companies Still
Host Terrorist Websites. Terrorism specialists say the Internet now reigns as the single most
powerful tool in the arsenal of Islamic extremists bent on taking their organizations global. A number
of major homegrown terrorism plots in recent years were conceived by wannabe jihadis incited by extremist
websites. Would companies like The Planet and CI Host suddenly unravel the technical mysteries of
self-policing if their executives became defendants in a federal enforcement action?
bombers planned mass killing over Atlantic, court told. Eight Islamic fundamentalists planned to
kill on an "unprecedented scale" by exploding bombs on transatlantic flights, a British court heard Tuesday.
The men, who were arrested in August 2006 before they could carry out the alleged plot, had hoped for a "truly
global impact", prosecutor Peter Wright told a London court. Wright told Woolwich Crown Court that Abdulla
Ahmed Ali and Assad Sarwar, both 28, led the group and were "indifferent to the carnage that was likely to
ensue if their plans were successful."
Forming Cells In America. Hezbollah could be one of the first security challenges faced by the new Obama
administration. An official government report concludes the Iranian-backed Islamic terror group has been forming
sleeper cells throughout the United States that could become operational.
Shrinks And Spooks: If
America starts letting shrinks and guidance counselors determine our intelligence practices, we will never be any
match for the bloodthirsty fanatics who will stop at nothing to destroy the Western world's freedoms.
Would you want these Guantanamo suspects living next door?
The latest way to seek an immigration pass into Canada appears to go like this: Act suspiciously like a
terrorist or even become one; spend a few years at the U.S. naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; get your
name on a refugee-status claim form for review by Canadian immigration officials based in Jamaica.
Canadian church groups and others have filed to "sponsor" five Guantanamo Bay detainees for immigration to
Canada as refugees.
Guess Who's Speaking At the Local Mosque?
Unless you live in a rural area, there is probably a mosque (or more than one) in your town, and most
people — including local law enforcement officials — regard them with the complete indifference
shown the local churches. It is the height of political incorrectness to even suggest that
possibly, just possibly, it might be worth checking into the local mosque's sources of funding,
and what they're teaching there. As a Las Vegas city councilor exclaimed when some people
objected to a proposal to build a mosque right beyond the fence of the international airport, "What's
the big deal? It's just a church!"
Islamic bigotry is
still bigotry. Surveys of Muslim opinion reveal the scale of the problem: almost a third of
Muslim students believe that killing in the name of religion can be justified, and 40 percent support the
introduction of Sharia law for British Muslims. Channel 4's programme does not explain how we can diminish
this kind of narrow bigotry. But it does make it impossible for anyone to deny the continued existence of
extremism in some British mosques.
Islamic Websites — and Terror: In counterterrorism circles there is significant buzz about
"Al-Qaeda 2.0", warning of highly decentralized jihadist networks operating independently and driven by a
highly toxic internet-inspired Islamic ideology. The sad reality is, however, that an increasing number
of jihadist websites, especially those in the English language, are finding safe haven in the US — and
the US government seems powerless, or unwilling, to stop them.
Mosques in New York. Terrorism expert Yehudit Barsky said that 80% of the mosques in this
country "have been radicalized by Saudi money and influence." The Saudis would build large mosques for
immigrant Muslim communities in the United States, and send a Saudi imam to staff the new facility. The
Saudis, said Barsky, have spent as much as $80 billion on such efforts over the last thirty years. Note
also that hate propaganda of just this kind has been found in American mosques — which should not be
surprising not only because of the Saudi connection but because much of this is mainstream Islamic teaching.
of separatism at work inside Britain's mosques. Britain's leading Muslim bodies say they are
fighting extremism. In one of [Britain's] most respected mosques, Sara Hassan came face to face with
hardline female preachers of separatism. Here, she reports on the shocking results of her investigation.
Muslims 'are turning to extremism'. Increasing numbers have become so alienated from mainstream
society that they could even lend their support to jihadi terrorism, the study claims. While most reject
violence, many distrust police and are reluctant to inform on extremists.
for Thugs Could Sink Naïve Obama. What is it about the word "appeasement" that got Barack
Obama's ears ringing? Without once uttering the freshman anti-war senator's name, President Bush warned
against negotiating with terrorists on the futile hope that a little more dialogue will turn these satanic
beasts from their death pact to wipe Israel off the map and kill as many American men, women and children
Prevention Act: International reaction was almost uniformly negative last week when news broke
that Britain had officially granted Muslim Sharia courts permission to rule on everything from divorce to
domestic violence. After all, in its strictest form, Sharia law requires the stoning of women accused
of adultery, and the execution of converts from Islam, among other draconian punishments for offences that
aren't even considered crimes in the West.
Islam vs. Free Speech: Under assault
by Muslims and multiculturalists, free speech and freedom of the press are dead in Britain. The same
sorts of people who killed them in Britain are killing them in Canada. They and their allies are using
the British and Canadian courts and tribunals to bury our First Amendment rights in America.
Time for Canada
to grow a spine. Canada is so afraid of offending newcomers that we can't bring ourselves to demand
that immigrants and refugees make some commitment to the Canadian way of life. It's time Canada grew a spine
and made it clear that citizenship comes with responsibilities — not just social assistance, free health
care and subsidized education. I propose a 10-year wait time for citizenship to make sure newcomers are the
right fit for a peaceful, tolerant democracy. Right now, you can apply for citizenship after only three
years. You have to wait longer to become a citizen in just about every other western country.
warned not to question Islam. An influential council of Malaysia's state rulers has warned
people not to question the supremacy of Islam or the special privileges enjoyed by the country's ethnic
Malay majority. Racial and religious tensions have increased in the past year as minorities have
become more vocal in their complaints about an affirmative action program that they say unfairly favors
Malays. They also complain that their religious rights are being ignored.
NJ Muslim leader can stay in US. An influential New Jersey Muslim leader whom U.S. authorities
had sought to link to a terrorist group and have deported has won his fight to gain permanent U.S. residency. A
federal immigration judge in Newark ruled today that Mohammad Qatanani, the spiritual leader of the Islamic
Center of Passaic County, can remain in the U.S.
Trojan Horse: Suddenly, a new national debate is beginning about the national security, economic
and other implications of Persian Gulf potentates using their petrodollars to buy up strategic American assets.
Most recently, the emir of Dubai's purchase at fire-sale prices of 4.9 percent of the largest U.S. bank,
Citigroup, caused a level of unease not seen since he tried to buy his way into many U.S. port facilities.
more babies and Muslims can take over the UK' hate fanatic says. Muslim hate fanatics plan to
take over Britain by having more babies and forcing a population explosion, it has been revealed. The
swollen Muslim population would be enough to conquer Britain from inside, they claim. Fanatics told a
meeting of young Muslims on the anniversary of the 9/11 atrocity, that it would then be easy to impose Sharia
law on the population, the Sun newspaper reported.
The Muslim Brotherhood's
"Grand Jihad" in Toledo: It might only be the shores of Lake Erie, but the Muslim Brotherhood has established
an invasion beachhead in Toledo. Perhaps it's no coincidence that the Department of Homeland Security recently added
Toledo to the list of high-risk terrorism areas.
Islamic leader warns of
terror strike. Australia faces a "London-type bombing" if relations between Muslims and the
intelligence and police authorities do not improve, an influential Islamic youth leader has warned. Fadi
Rahman, who runs one of Sydney's biggest youth centres at Lidcombe in the city's west, said overseas Islamic
elements were attempting to radicalise Muslim youth with their hardline ideologies.
the press attacked. In a flagrant attack on freedom of the press, the Canadian Islamic Congress
(CIC) has filed three human rights complaints against Maclean's magazine and its editor-in-chief, Kenneth Whyte,
accusing them of spreading "hatred and contempt" for Muslims, by publishing an article by Mark Steyn on Oct. 23,
2006, entitled The Future Belongs to Islam.
Radical Imam Promotes Pro-Islamic Ad
Campaign to Run on New York Subways. A Muslim group, in collaboration with a Brooklyn imam once
investigated as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, paid $48,000 to run Islamic
advertisements on the city's subway cars this September. The ad campaign — known as the "Subway
Project" — was designed to inform people about Islam and dispel common misconceptions about the religion .
Allah aboard the jihad train!
A Brooklyn imam who has been linked to various terror plots to destroy landmarks is targeting New York City
passengers in 1,000 subway cars with a new campaign to draw people into Islam. Siraj Wahhaj has defended
convicted would-be bombers and labeled FBI and CIA agents "real terrorists," according to a report by the
New York Post.
Iranians study nuclear
physics in Britain. The Foreign Office has cleared dozens of Iranians to enter British
universities to study advanced nuclear physics and other subjects with the potential to be applied to weapons
of mass destruction. In the past nine months about 60 Iranians have been admitted to study postgraduate
courses deemed "proliferation-sensitive" by the security services. The disciplines range from nuclear
physics to some areas of electrical and chemical engineering and microbiology.
surveillance planes hear Taliban fighters talking in Brummie and Yorkshire accents. The Taliban
are thought to be recruiting an increasing number of fighters from Britain after RAF experts overheard secret
transmissions from the Afghan frontline spoken in broad Midlands and Yorkshire accents. The discovery
indicates that a growing number of British-born Muslim are turning their backs on the West and moving to
Afghanistan to be trained as fighters.

This is the inevitable fruit of "multiculturalism." It's one thing to welcome immigrants from

Critics Dub Saudi Islamic School
'Terror High'. Its most virulent critics have dubbed it "Terror High" and 12 U.S.
senators and a federal commission want to shut it down. The teachers, administrators and
some 900 students at the Islamic Saudi Academy in Fairfax County have heard the allegations for
years — after the Sept 11 attacks and then a few years later when a class valedictorian
admitted he had joined Al Qaeda.
came for Piglet. [Scroll down] Take, for example, the "moderate" imam Yusuf al-Qaradawi,
who once observed that "we will conquer Europe, we will conquer America. Not through the sword, but
through da'wa" — i.e., the non-incendiary form of Islamic outreach. What could be more
moderate than that? No wonder Mr. al-Qaradawi is an associate of the Islamic Society of Boston,
currently building the largest mosque in the northeast .
Accused of Hiding Ties to Imam. A former security guard at Andrews Air Force Base who failed to

of Islam, the Muslims plead with Christian leaders "to come together with us on the common essentials of our
The Goal of the Jihad:
I am not much for predicting the future, so when it comes to detailing the next moves of the jihadists I can't
tell you what they're going to do — but I can tell you about the ultimate goal they're working
toward. President Bush has said that they are hoping to establish an Islamic state from Spain
to Indonesia. He could have added in the Americas, too, for their goal is global.
The Trouble With Islam.
It is vital to grasp that traditional and even mainstream Islamic teaching accepts and promotes violence.
Shariah, for example, allows apostates to be killed, permits beating women to discipline them, seeks to
subjugate non-Muslims to Islam as dhimmis and justifies declaring war to do so. It exhorts good
Muslims to exterminate the Jews before the "end of days." The near deafening silence of the Muslim majority
against these barbaric practices is evidence enough that there is something fundamentally wrong.
Poll: 1 in 4 U.S. Young Muslims OK With
Homicide Bombings Against Civilians. One out of four young U.S. Muslims believe homicide bombings
against civilians are OK to "defend Islam," according to a new poll. The poll by the Pew Research Center
also finds some Muslim Americans seem to be separating from mainstream America in their attitudes toward the
War on Terror and U.S. Mideast policy.

Cell Next Door: an interview with Brian Jenkins. Communications comprise a key component of
al Qaeda's campaign. We see it as a military contest. Bin Laden sees it as building an
army of believers. All wartime communications are aimed at the home front. Even as bin Laden
appears to be addressing us, his followers are his primary audience.
The Islamist Trojan Horse. "We're
fighting them there, so we don't have to fight them here" has become a hymn for the American right and an
abominable lie to the left. But drowned out by all the noise is the fact that "they" are here already,
having landed a long time ago and gotten very busy indeed constructing the American wing of jihad.
America's Muslim population
is gaining a Hispanic accent. Khadijah Rivera, 57, traded her Bible for the Koran. "Islam

The Editor says...
Hell is full of "regular people."
Criminals: Sheikh Abdullah Azzam, one of the founders of the jihadist movement that became
al Qaeda, put it this way (I'm quoting from Lawrence Wright's definitive history, The Looming Tower):
"We shall continue the Jihad no matter how long the way, until the last breath and the last beat of the
pulse — or until we see the Islamic state established."
I escaped Islamism: For almost four years I was on the front line of British Islamism serving
as a regional officer in northeast England for Hizb ut-Tahrir, an extremist group committed to the creation
of a puritanical caliphate. Since leaving in 2005, I've been concerned at just how easy it was for me to
join a radical Islamist movement — and why there was hardly any support available when I decided to leave.

Here is a man who for the past ten years has been one of the two most prominent members of a government which

Brown: Don't Say Terrorists are Muslims.
Gordon Brown has banned ministers from using the word "Muslim" in connection with the terrorism crisis. The

Hamas TV Follows Farfour with Nahoul the Bee.
Hamas TV introduced a new children's character intended to inspire future extremists and suicide bombers with
Nahoul the Bee. In a television skit, the character vows to continue the work of his cousin, Farfour the

Jihad: The Media Misses the Point. It's not about the organization, it's the
ideology. … Indeed, al Qaeda does not purport to give direction only to its own
members, or even that the directions it does impart are al Qaeda's own directions. The network
presumes to be guiding all Muslims toward what Islam compels.
Another straw on
the back of the proverbial American camel. Why do these residents in our midst, who have
voluntarily come to America, and some of whom have had America itself spend billions abroad on their brethren,
wish to kill us? Such questions are nonsensical. The aggrieved Islamist, whether born here or
abroad, lives in a world of emotion, never reason, in which pride, envy, and a sense of inferiority always
trump logic. When, as an individual or collectively, he constructs someone or something culpable for his
own — or his people's — sense of failure, then a primordial urge to lash out follows.
Why Confront Islamism?
Because if we don't it will continue to get more extreme. This is not Islamophobia, as many Muslims and
their apologists protest. A phobia is a baseless irrational fear. Detestation of Islamism, the violent
form of Islam, is based on irrefutable facts and it is not only rational, it is ethically imperative.
A Rising Tide of Fury.
To varying degrees, 27 percent of Moroccans, 21 percent of Egyptians, 13 percent of Pakistanis
and 11 percent of Indonesians approve of terrorism attacks on civilians — and not just American
civilians. Extrapolating those percentages to the world Muslim population, roughly 250 million
Muslims may approve, under some circumstances, of terrorism attacks on civilians generally.
Post 9/11, Islam flourishes among

of Muslims in the United States since the September 11 attacks, according to imams and experts.
The Middle East: Where Trouble Lives and is
Exported. The Middle East "is progressively disengaging from the world economy," warns Patrick
Clawson, an expert on the area. The region grew at only half the rate of other developing nations
during the 1990s. The Middle East continues to slip further behind the West and even Asia. The
Middle East today is a dangerous combination of poverty, a militant Islam, nationalism, and a mindset that
blames everyone else for its problems.

One flag too
high. The faith of Islam is in fighting trim. In millions, the Islamists are traveling and
settling abroad. From these reserves we get occasional irruptions of high-tech loathing, in lower
Manhattan and Washington, D.C., in Spanish trains, in British subways. The elderly voices of Islam that

Thailand. Bangkok The death toll from a two-year Muslim insurgency in southern Thailand has
risen to more than 1,700, with bomb attacks steadily increasing over the past few months, a research
team has said.
Is political Islam on the march?
Since the Sept. 11 terror attacks nearly five years ago, Americans have come increasingly to believe that
political Islam is a mortal threat to the West, an aggressive and totalitarian ideology dedicated to random
destruction and global subjugation.
Cleric to sue for damages.
In the ultimate insult to Australia's Bali bombing victims, radical cleric Abu Bakar Bashir has bragged that he
is planning to sue for damages after a controversial decision to clear him of terrorism charges. The
families of victims of the 2002 attack told of their despair that Bashir — widely regarded as
the spiritual leader of the terrorists who murdered their loved ones — is free and planning
to cash in.
The Editor says...
The Muslims have figured out how to sap the life out of America: It is done with frivolous
lawsuits, or just the threat of a lawsuit. And fortunately for them, there is no shortage of
lawyers who will abet and facilitate this process if the price is right.
among us? A 2004 Chicago Tribune investigation revealed that, after a
contentious debate, U.S. leaders of the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood decided in 1993 to
begin calling themselves the Muslim American Society. The Muslim Brotherhood is an
international Islamist group that largely operates underground. The Brotherhood's
goal is to spread the rule of Islamic law throughout the world.
No American Muslim
Terrorists? Of the 212 suspected and convicted terrorist perpetrators during 1993-2003,
86 percent were Muslim immigrants and the remainder mainly converts to Islam.
More than merely
a word. The pride we take in our tolerance, our determination to fight fair, to look for the
"root causes" of poverty, ignorance and oppression to explain the anger of the likes of Zacarious Moussaoui
and the evil of Sept. 11 put us at peril. Most of the Sept. 11 terrorists grew up in
middle-class comfort and knew neither poverty nor oppression.
for Christmas Giving: Among the new books this year, Londonistan, by Melanie Phillips, is
an eye-opening account of how the British have so succumbed to political correctness as regards their Muslim
minority that even incitements to murder by Muslim extremists go unpunished. While the Brits have gone
further down this road than Americans have, we are being led in the same direction by our academic and media
Radical Arabs Seek Influence
Over U.S. Media. There are terrorists in the Muslim world seething with
hatred for all Americans. This war, unlike any other we have confronted, presents
us with an enemy that is everywhere and nowhere. The media are a key battleground. It
is a war largely without nation-state soldiers in uniforms. To add to the confusion, our
enemy has skillfully blurred the lines between bloodthirsty murderers and legitimately religious
people. Thus, the pressure for "tolerance" that often fails to distinguish the former from
Treason is Not Merely Dissenting Against
Wars. A nation that means to perpetuate its existence must never abandon its clarity when it
comes to distinguishing friends from enemies. The war against Islamo-fascists, who murder people in
the name of Allah, deserves the benefit of moral clarity no less than our other wars. Prosecuting
those who compromise national security by leaking to the media details of our surveillance of the enemy,
is a good place to start.
Islamist Totalitarianism Views the West: Leaders of al-Qaeda and other terrorist movements
are confident that people in the West are decadent, weak and cowardly — and ripe for
defeat. Their world view promotes the idea that America, Israel, and other Western nations
are paper-tigers, unwilling to sustain a long-term war with regular casualties.
Stand up: Wafa
Sultan is passing. In an age that has brought us the Theo van Gogh assassination, deadly
riots over a series of Danish newspaper cartoons, the Pym Fortune assassination, the death threats against
Salman Rushdie, Hirsi Ali and Ibn Warraq, among many others, it requires truly remarkable courage to stare
into the Al-Jazeera camera and calmly permit yourself to be labeled a heretic.

Prayer leads to work disputes.
Requests by Muslims to pray at work have led to clashes with employers who say they cannot accommodate the
strictly scheduled prayers. The conflicts raise questions about religious rights on the job.
Muslims say they are being discriminated against and are taking their complaints to the courts and the
federal government. Employers say the time out for prayer can burden other workers and disrupt
Speaking of schools... Your Friendly Jihadi Bus Driver.
According to the FBI, terrorists are working as school bus drivers but it's
nothing to worry about, the FBI is sure they don't mean any harm.
The Islamic threat is
greater than German and Soviet threats were. Whereas there were unique aspects to those evils,
there are two unique aspects to the evil emanating from the Islamic world that render this latest threat to
humanity particularly difficult to overcome. One is the number of people who believe in
it. … [The other aspect is this:] Nazis and Communists wanted to live and feared death; Islamic
authoritarians love death and loathe life.
American Border Secrets. What steps
should Western border agencies take to defend their homelands from harm by Islamists? In the case
of non-citizens, the answer is simple: Don't let Islamists in. Exclude not just potential terrorists
but also anyone who supports the totalitarian goals of radical Islam. Just as civilized countries
did not welcome fascists in the early 1940s (or communists a decade later), they need not welcome
risk for bomb attacks at U.S. stadiums and sporting events. The
FBI has warned stadium operators to be alert for possible suicide bomb
attack at sporting events. A posting on a terrorist-sponsored web site solicited
homicide and suicide attacks against people at stadiums and sporting events in
the U.S. using groups of three to five "blond or black American Muslim suicide bombers."
Hate spread at mosque
gates. A radical Islamic group is infiltrating Australian mosques, distributing inflammatory
pamphlets urging Muslims to rise up against Australian troops in Iraq and support the insurgency.
Death by a
thousand lawsuits. Though many Islamic groups across the United States have been closed
since 9/11 for ties to terrorism, some Muslim organizations being accused of having similar such connections
have turned for help to a branch of the government, specifically the courts. In most instances,
though, the point does not seem to be winning or clearing one's own name, but rather to do what the
government cannot: stifle criticism.
tapes given out at mosques. Police have launched an investigation into
claims that video tapes and DVDs handed out at mosques in Dewsbury were being used to
recruit terrorists. The tapes, purporting to contain readings from the Koran,
were given to Muslims attending two mosques in Savile Town during the weekend's Eid festival.
preachers drive the poisoning of young minds. Some, like Sheik Faiz Mohamad of the Global
Islamic Youth Centre in Liverpool, have preached that women who are raped are at fault if they dress
immodestly. … Others, like the firebrand American preacher Khalid Yasin, who visits Australia
regularly, warn about associating with non-Muslims – "there's no such thing as a Muslim
having a non-Muslim friend".
The Islamic States of America? The hardest
thing for Westerners to understand is not that a war with militant Islam is underway but that the nature of the
enemy's ultimate goal. That goal is to apply the Islamic law (the Shari'a) globally. In U.S. terms,
it intends to replace the Constitution with the Qur'an. This aspiration is so remote and far-fetched
to many non-Muslims, it elicits more guffaws than apprehension.
hiding in plain sight. Nearly half of the 48 al Qaeda terrorists tied to
violent acts in the United States between 1993 and 2001 committed significant immigration-law
violations prior to those events but were never detained or deported, federal records show.
Parts of Detroit seem Middle Eastern. The
Dearborn area has the largest concentration of Arabic people outside of the Middle East. Some say they
came as a result of Henry Ford's infatuation with their culture. Ford offered them jobs and places to
stay on the condition that they would teach him the ways of Islam.
Michigan: The Islamic Capital of the
US. As of 2005, Michigan held the largest and still growing Muslim population in the United States
and the second largest Arab population outside of the Middle East. Outside of Muslim-run countries,
Paris — which still experiences nightly vehicle torchings and mayhem in its Islamic neighborhoods — has
the largest. It is estimated that eight million Muslims now live in the US and their numbers are
continuing to grow. Islam is now the second-largest religious body in the United States and is
said to be its fastest growing religious movement.

Uncovers Missile Plot. Two leaders of a mosque in Albany, N.Y., were arrested
on charges stemming from an alleged plot to help a man they thought was a terrorist purchase

a group called Ansar al-Islam, which has been linked to the al-Qaida terror network, according
to two federal law enforcement authorities speaking on condition of anonymity.

Latinos and Islam
Conversion: There is almost no research showing the number of Muslims in the country,
although the U.S. State Department has reported some trends that show Islam is one the fastest-growing
religions in the nation. The report also predicts that, by 2010, the Muslim population will be
larger than Judaism and the second-largest religion in the U.S., after Christianity.
The French riots of 2005
It Sizzles: The intifada comes to France. The French use the euphemism "quartiers
sensibles" — sensitive neighborhoods — for the troubled, predominantly Arab and
African working-class suburbs of Paris and other cities that increasingly resemble a ticking bomb at
the heart of their society.
Hell no, we

French Fried Muslim
Madness. Here's the typical feed coming from liberal thought police central: "Riots
have broken out in Paris suburbs. This wave of destruction has been at the hand of North African
and Middle Eastern descent French youths who have been disenfranchised and unemployed by haughty white
French people." Yeah, if you do a little digging, I bet you'd find that, as Mark Steyn wrote, the
names of the "French youths" culpable for this anarchy are not Pierre, Patrice, Henri and Claude, but
rather Habib, Achmed and Mohamed.
threat in France: This is not about Muslim poverty (the Islamist terrorists who hit
London all had good jobs. Mohammed Atta, who struck us in New York, was well-born and came
from a prosperous family). It is about radical Islamist self-confidence and contempt for
the West. And, it is about Western weakness.
the facts: No one wants to admit what polls have long suggested — the
French are finally reaping what they sowed with their longstanding, loose immigration laws and
their egalitarian snobbishness. Here in the United States, Republicans are finally waking
up to the fact that we too have the makings of a serious problem from excessive immigration.
ignore one key fact about Paris rioters: they're mostly Muslims. The rioters
who have terrorized Paris for two weeks now have been called many things by the mainstream

A thug by any

Police Guard Paris Treasures From
Rioters. Some 3,000 police fanned out around Paris on Saturday [11/12/2005] to prevent
any attempts to attack high-profile targets such as the Eiffel Tower after a 16th straight night of unrest
and arson. … "This is not a rumor," said National Police Chief Michel Gaudin. The famed
Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysees avenue were among potential targets, he said.

Francophiles may unclench. After weeks of national unrest, Jacques Chirac finally got tough
on the car-broilers: He proposed job training for 50,000 of the unemployed malcontents. That'll

French riots: 126
cops hurt. France's national police service said on Wednesday [11/16/2005] that 126
officers had been injured since urban unrest first flared up nearly three weeks ago. It said
a total of 2,888 people had been arrested since the violence started on October 27, and 8,973 vehicles
had been destroyed by arson.
Riots in the welfare
state. France is a welfare state. The government controls the economy. Unions
rule. Bureaucracies fight market forces so as to benefit factory workers, farmers, and civil
servants. Wages are high, vacations are long, and benefits are generous. That means
French businesses cannot afford to hire people who need jobs.
Leftist hate for
America: In the past, Europeans were unwilling or unable to protect themselves against Nazism
and communism. Now they demonstrate an unwillingness to protect themselves against Islam hell-bent on
conquering the West. We just might have to pull Europe's chestnut out of the
fire — again.
I don't want to blame the Islamic thugs in France for something that they haven't done, but I find it
hard to believe that a completely different group of people is rioting this year, and they had nothing
to do with last year's riots. I suspect it's the same young people. Still, even if the same
people are in the streets again, the current French riots appear to have little to do with Islamic
outrage and a lot to do with heavy-handed socialism, high unemployment and unfair labor laws.

Paris 'smashers' shift attacks from

Surrender!' True to Gallic tradition, President Jacques Chirac on Monday [4/10/2006] stared

Update: French Police Faulted in Youths'
Deaths. An internal police review of the 2005 electrocutions of two teenagers that triggered

Supermax to Supermosque: How Australia's most secure prison has had to adapt. Backpacker killer Ivan
Milat did not live to see his long-term home's latest refurbishment but he would not really fit in at Supermax these
days. Milat was one of the first inmates when Supermax opened 20 years ago and before his death in 2019 was already the
odd one out in many ways. Supermax houses inmates who cannot be allowed to mix in the wider New South Wales jail system
and the profile of those prisoners has drastically changed.
Prisons a 'hotbed' of [Islamic] extremism that can't be cooled down. A London-born expert on Islam is raising
concerns about the efficacy and madness of deradicalization programs in European prisons, while upwards to a thousand
ISIS-affiliated inmates will be released from behind bars this year. As many as 1,000 terrorists who were once fighting
for ISIS will be released from prisons in Europe throughout the remainder of the year. According to The National,
Edmund Fitton-Brown, a former British ambassador to Yemen who is currently serving as coordinator of the UN's sanctions
monitoring team, says the move creates "a serious worry." What's more, this comes at a time when counterterrorism police fear
ISIS sleeper cells may be plotting to commit attacks across Europe.
of Prisons failed to monitor terrorist communications, IG report says. The Bureau of Prisons failed to
adequately monitor thousands of communications from more than 500 inmates with ties to terrorism, according to a Justice
Department inspector general report released Wednesday [3/25/2020]. In the nearly 70-page report, Inspector General
Michael E. Horowitz wrote that the BOP did not take appropriate steps to review the email, phone calls, postage mail, video
sessions and cellblock conversations of domestic and international terrorist inmates. For example, the BOP failed to
flag a letter that a high-risk inmate received from his wife detailing her intent to compromise a staff member at his
prison. The BOP also missed a threatening letter sent to a television talk show host from an inmate pledging allegiance
to the Islamic State and threatening violence.
The 'Black Site' Federal Prison Where An Insurance Scammer Was Allegedly Killed By A Jihadi. Robert David Neal,
an insurance scammer, was killed and nearly beheaded in November 2018 by Rodney Hamrick, a jihadi and former resident of
Supermax in Colorado, according to a court filing. Both Neal and Hamrick were being housed in the Communications
Management Unit (CMU) in Terre Haute, Indiana. [...] While the manner of death was reported to be a homicide, the prison
officials did not release the name of the perpetrator. Two other inmates housed at the CMU have taken an interest in
the killing, Marty Gottesfeld and Schaeffer Cox. Gottesfeld received a ten year sentence after he diverted traffic to
the Boston Children's Hospital in 2014, to protest their treatment of Justina Pelletier, a teenager many said was medically
kidnapped by the hospital and Child Protective Services. Cox was a militia leader in Alaska, who was convicted of
conspiracy to commit murder in 2012. Gottesfeld and Cox wrote an article about the murder, and in an effort to publicize
it, in August 2019, Gottesfeld filed a motion in his case in which the article was an exhibit.
Radicalization [is] a Recurring Global Threat. Last week, two days after the United Nations Security Council
conducted a forum on the threat of prison radicalization and terrorism, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District
of Illinois announced the arrest of Jason Brown for attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist
organization. Brown, also known as Abdul Ja'Me, was the leader of a violent street gang in the Chicago area known as
AHK. Brown converted to a radical form of Islam while an inmate in Georgia serving time from 2016-18 for a gun
violation. He was on supervised release at the time of his arrest. Brown was influenced by sermons from radical,
Jamaican-based Islamic cleric Sheikh Abdullah Faisal, according to the criminal complaint filed by FBI Special Agent Nathan
Scherer. Faisal was convicted in the United Kingdom in 2003 of soliciting murder for encouraging Muslims to fight and
kill "kuffars," or non-believers.
Actually Fueling Jihad? Although prisons have been an on-again off-again political topic for years, their main
purpose has been threefold: to punish the perpetrator; act as a deterrent towards further crime; and ideally, rehabilitate
the wrongdoer. When it comes to imprisoned terrorists, however, that third prong has been almost entirely missing, and
the damage is something we'll be experiencing for years. Some recent cases prove this point.
Conveyor Belts to Jihad? As the United States and its coalition partners continue to squeeze ISIS out of its
remaining territory in Iraq and Syria, more and more foreign fighters are returning to their home countries. This
migration from the battlefield to the hometown is causing great concern among Western counterterrorism authorities. The
question on everyone's mind is how long before the returning jihadists unleash an attack on their own countries. Not
very long, according to a new study on terrorism and political violence. Within one year, the study found, and in some
cases as little as months, returning fighters attempted a terrorist attack in their home countries. The term researchers
used to describe that period was, "Lags in Attack Times of Extremist Returnees (LATER)." The most effective way to
mitigate the threat, authors David Malet and Rachel Hayes say, is to take immediate corrective action when a jihadist returns
home. Increased security and a vibrant de-radicalization program can help the returnees peacefully reintegrate to Western
society. This advice is just as important for American prison officials to heed.
Uprising by ISIS Followers Shakes Indonesia's Prison System. The uprising began with a riot Tuesday night in a
section of the detention center holding 156 terrorism suspects and detainees, many of them accused of being violent, radical
followers of the Islamic State's ideology. The detainees managed to seize dozens of weapons, attacked guards and then
took several of them hostage. It ended Thursday morning with a mass surrender of the detainees after counterterrorism
officers began blasting apart walls and firing tear gas into a cellblock where the men had holed up.
most ridiculous logic on terrorism you've ever heard. Sending terrorists to jail is counter-productive because
then they will act even more like terrorists. If you do not follow that logic, then you clearly do not sit on the U.K.
House of Commons Select Committee on Justice, where a group of cross-party MPs has just proposed that those convicted of

CAIR shakes down Dept of Corrections over sharia meals. A Muslim civil liberties organization has settled its
lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections on behalf of inmates allegedly denied adequate nutrition during the
annual month-long Ramadan fast. The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) filed the
suit in 2013 after four Muslim inmates said they received as little as one-third of the recommended daily calories in Ramadan
2011 and 2012. The inmates were serving sentences at four correctional facilities: Saginaw, Newberry, Parnall in
Jackson, and Alger, located in Wetmore. The plaintiffs said they often received meals containing inedible food or less
than what was set forth on the Ramadan menu. The morning meal also frequently was served after sunrise, precluding them
from consuming the meal in accordance with the strictures of Ramadan observance.
County Jail adopts halal meal plan after RFRA lawsuit. The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana is
dismissing its religious freedom lawsuit against the Boone County Sheriff's Office after the county jail implemented plans to
offer inmates the option of a halal diet. The ACLU in August employed the state's controversial Religious Freedom
Restoration Act in a complaint that alleged staff at the Boone County Jail violated the rights of a Muslim inmate when they
refused to supply him with food that adheres to a halal diet, which excludes pork and includes other meat only if it is
slaughtered under certain conditions. The suit also alleged the sheriff's office violated the First Amendment rights of
the inmate, Gannon Thomas. It was among early uses of the state's religious freedom law, which Gov. Mike Pence
signed in 2015 amid controversy that placed the state in the national spotlight because some opponents believed it could be
twisted to discriminate against gay and lesbian Hoosiers. Experts, though, said this suit represents the type of claim
such laws are meant to address.
for Islamist extremists to be held in separate prison units. Dangerous Islamist extremists will be held in
separate prison units after an inquiry warned "self-styled emirs" were radicalising others behind bars. A
government-ordered review also suggested "cultural sensitivity" among staff towards Muslim prisoners could "inhibit the
effective confrontation of extremist views". The disclosures emerged after a probe into radicalisation in jails led by
former prison governor Ian Acheson and commissioned last year by then justice secretary Michael Gove.
Who's Teaching the
Class? A good teacher can make all the difference in the world to an aspiring learner. But a bad teacher
can have a disastrously adverse effect. Such may be the case in Nashville, Tenn. where Davidson County Sheriff Daron
Hall recently announced that he was partnering with the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) to provide an instructor to
lead a class called "Islam 101" that will be taught to correction officers and other prison staff. The Davidson County
Corrections Department has about 800 personnel and an inmate population that exceeds 2,000 offenders on any given day. With
a captive audience of that size, it is vitally important to know what is being taught and who is doing the teaching. AMAC
grew out of a project, called the "Muslim Rapid Response Team," which was initiated by the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights
Coalition (TIRRC). The rapid response team was formed to provide vocal opposition against an anti-terrorism bill being
considered by the Tennessee Legislature.
training manual used in prisons includes a section on waging a holy war. A manual of Islam used in British
prisons teaches inmates about jihad and 'incites' them to wage holy war, it has been claimed. The Tarbiyah (Islamic
study) programme has a section on holy war and advises that taking up arms against the enemies of Allah is 'one of the
noblest acts'. Shaeikh Musa Admani has called for it to be removed because it 'incites' violence and helps convicted
terrorists manipulate younger inmates towards extremism. And the Ministry of Justice has refused to release the
document to MailOnline due to 'security concerns', despite the fact it has been available in prisons since 2011. They
said they are investigating the issue and will publish a 'summary document' when it has been revised.
prison chaplains 'encouraging murder of non-believers'. Muslim prison chaplains have routinely distributed
Islamist literature, according to a leaked report. A review which started in September, commissioned by Justice
Secretary Michael Gove, found extremist pamphlets and CDs in more than 10 jails in November. The material included
homophobic and misogynistic sentiments and encouraged the murder of apostates — Muslims who leave or reject the religion,
according to the Times. The report on what was found has not yet been cleared for publication.
Islamists "Control" Some Maximum Security Prisons in Britain. Islamist extremists are intimidating other inmates to
convert to Islam and guards at Britain's most secure jail have "lost control" over the situation, reports London's Evening Standard.
Lawyer Rubert Pardoe recently told a judge at the Central Criminal Court of England and Wales that Islamist bullying was so severe that
some prisoners at Thamesmead jail are kept in "lockdown" to protect them from the Muslim inmates. "There is a sense that the prison
authorities have lost control. Many defendants in my client's situation are in total lockdown. There's a degree of fear
as to the need to conform to certain religious views in Belmarsh (prison)," Pardoe said.
make up just one in 20 Britons — but one in SEVEN prison inmates. Friday morning in Wakefield Prison and Yusuf Rahim joins
60 other Muslim prisoners as they head to the jail's gym to say their prayers. If nothing else, it is a chance to get out of
his cell and take a break from the normal routine. The same goes for the halal food the 47-year-old is served every mealtime —
Rahim is particularly partial to the spicy vegetable curry — an improvement on the normal prison fare. And there is one
other advantage to his new-found religion. Because, as one of Britain's most reviled murderers, he is banking on his Muslim 'brothers'
providing him with some level of protection during his time inside.
One in five inmates in maximum
security prisons is Muslim. There are currently 5,885 highly dangerous criminals behind bars in the eight Category A prisons in the UK,
of which 1,229 follow the Islamic faith. The figure equates to 20 percent of high-security prisoners and, according to figures obtained by
The Sun, is an increase of 23 percent from five years ago.
imam may have radicalized dozens behind bars. Marcus Dwayne Robertson, a Muslim extremist
also known as Imam Abu Taubah who once led a murderous New York gang dubbed "Ali Baba and the Forty
Thieves" before resurfacing decades later as a radical imam at a Florida mosque, has been held at the
John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Seminole County, Fla. Currently imprisoned on a weapons
conviction, he faces sentencing on June 26 for a tax fraud conviction. Federal authorities
want him locked up and kept away from other inmates out of fear he will turn them into dangerous
jihadists, as he converted a number of fellow inmates including a white supremacist.
Hired By DOJ To Teach Muslim Classes To Federal Prisoners. An Egyptian-born imam who
in 2007 said that Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali should receive the death penalty for her
criticism of Islam is now a Department of Justice contractor hired to teach classes to Muslims who
are in federal prison. According to federal spending records, Fouad ElBayly, the imam at Islamic
Center of Johnstown in Pennsylvania, was contracted by the DOJ's Bureau of Prisons beginning last
year to teach the classes to Muslim inmates at Cumberland Federal Correctional Institution in
Cumberland, Md. The records show that ElBayly has two contracts worth $12,900 to teach the
classes and to provide the inmates "leadership and guidance."

D-Md., both members of the Intelligence Committee, in late January wrote a letter to the Federal
Bureau of Prisons inquiring about the protocols it's following to try to prevent prison
radicalization. "Two of the individuals responsible for the Paris terrorist attacks, Amedy
Coulibaly and Cherif Kauachi, first met at the overcrowded Fleury-Merogis prison in France," they
wrote. "This fact underscores the importance of implementing effective efforts to prevent and
counter radicalization of inmates at federal prisons in the United States."
are breeding grounds for jihadists. Prisons have become recruitment and training
centers for future jihadists. It is an escalating crisis that is taking a toll, as Americans are
murdered by those who convert to Islam in prison. The rising influence of Islam in our prisons is
due to a disproportionately high number of Muslims who are incarcerated, skyrocketing conversion rates,
powerful Muslim gangs, the proliferation of Muslim chaplains, an uninformed prison power structure, and
the outside influence of Islamic terror organizations. Oh, and the fact that the FBI isn't allowed
to say "Islam," "jihad," or target the very people who are trying to kill us as part of America's dangerous
ride on the Dhimmi bandwagon.
Prisons Churning Out Thousands Of Radicalized Inmates. Back in 2006, then FBI director
Robert Mueller prophetically described the radical Islamist conversion machine operating throughout
U.S. prisons, to a Senate committee. He said that prisons were a "fertile ground" for Islamic
extremists, and that they targeted inmates for introduction to the militant Wahhabi and Salafist
strains of Islam. The recent so-called "lone wolf" terrorist attacks in Oklahoma City, New York, and
just over our northern border in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, may be the product of such radicalization.
Early-Release Program Ignores Prison Islam. Alton Nolen, who was arrested for
beheading a co-worker and trying to behead another, converted to Islam while serving time on
crack-cocaine charges. Under the Justice Department's drug-sentencing reform, Nolen was eligible
for early release. He got out in 2013, serving just two years of a six-year sentence. It's a
tragic shame he wasn't locked up longer. Will there be similar regrets after Justice springs
thousands more like him from prison? Count on it.
Information Emerging About Oklahoma Terrorist. Both authorities in More [sic], Oklahoma, and
legions of social media watchers have been busy ferreting out information on the man accused of
stabbing and beheading Colleen Hufford, a 54-year-old grandmother, at a food distribution warehouse.
The picture that is emerging of Alton Noel, who took the Islamic name Jah'Keem Yisrael, is of a violent criminal
with no history of mental illness, who converted to Islam in prison and wished to bring Sharia law to America.
Beheading Suspect Alton Nolen/Jah'Keem Yisrael Fired After Argument Over Stoning Women. [Scroll down] The [McCurtain]
Gazette reports that Nolen has a long history with the local police department. He has been arrested at least 10 times by Idabel
police between 2004 and 2009, on "allegations ranging from assault, burglary, obstructing an officer, resisting arrest, drug possession, and
larceny," among other unlisted charges. Nolan's classmates state that he converted to Islam while in prison in 2011. Records
indicate he was incarcerated for, among other things, assaulting a police officer.
Beheading: Have Our Prisons Become Jihad Factories? We don't know details yet of the murder of a woman at Vaughan
Foods — an Oklahoma distribution center — by a co-worker, but we do know that it was a beheading and we do
know the alleged suspect — Alton Nolen, 30 — was a new convert to Islam. We also know that other workers
at Vaughan say the suspect had tried to convert them to that religion. Some MSM outlets are emphasizing that the suspect was
recently fired (it's workplace violence, doncha know?), but the number of firings that lead to revenge beheadings is minuscule.
In fact, I don't know of any previous. But we don't have to look too far back, not more than a day or two, to find a popular
motivation for beheadings in general — jihad.
Militants Jailed For Internet Threats Are Still Posting From Prison. American Islamist militants jailed for threatening violence
over the Internet are still posting political writings on the Web — while serving time in federal prison. Jesse Curtis
Morton, a convert to Islam who writes under the name Younus Abdullah Muhammed, posted a lengthy tract opposing U.S. drone policy, on
May 21, on [a] website that he launched in 2010. Morton is serving a prison term of more than 11 years in a Pennsylvania
federal prison after pleading guilty in 2012 to conspiring to solicit murder, make threatening communications and "use the Internet to
place others in fear."
The Editor says...
There's nothing really newsworthy in the article above except this: Apparently it is illegal (somewhere) to "use the Internet
to place others in fear." Really! Pretty soon it will probably be illegal to use the Internet to make someone else sad
or angry. Free speech won't be destroyed overnight in one draconian swoop. It will be chipped away in little pieces,
based on emotional appeals, as illustrated in the article above, in the name of "homeland security." Instead of restricting
everyone's free speech, it would be far better to cut off the internet access in prisons.
CAIR pushes 'hijab friendly' policy in American
prisons. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is working to make American prisons more "hijab-friendly," according to a report
from Al Arabiya. "I'm working on several pending cases in different states... and I'm in touch with an attorney for the Department of Justice's
Office of Civil Rights," Nadhira al-Khalili, legal counsel for CAIR, told the Saudi-owned news outlet. The goal for CAIR is to make the hijab a
permissible, official staple of Muslim women's attire, including for photos, in prisons nationwide.
If the man is in solitary confinement, he should also be incommunicado. Blind sheik's social media empire grows from behind bars.
The blind sheik, convicted of orchestrating the deadly World Trade Center bombing 20 years ago, has benefited from a sophisticated

call on Bureau of Prisons to remove inflammatory Islamic texts. In an attempt to stem the
tide of radicalization in American prisons, Tuesday [7/5/2011] Rep. Frank Wolf and Rep. Peter King called
on the U.S. Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to remove "inflammatory written, audio and video materials produced by
the 'Nation of Islam' and Louis Farrakhan," and examine all the other Islamic materials circulating in their

Enforcement Officials at King Hearing Claim Radical Islam Infiltrating U.S. Prisons. The
first round of King's hearings on domestic threats in March drew passionate protests, and the hearing

dismisses suit over inmate's sausage scrambler. A judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing the
Lancaster County jail of serving a Muslim inmate pork while he was awaiting trial on a drug charge.
Dario Scott, 48, pleaded guilty to the cocaine charge and is serving three to five years in the Community
Corrections Center, a state-run prison in Lincoln. In a lawsuit filed in October, Scott said staff at
the Lancaster Correctional Facility served him a sausage and cheese scrambler with pork in it, despite
assurances the jail's kitchen didn't serve pork, which Muslims often refrain from eating.
Anniversary of 9/11 Begs An In-Depth Examination Of The Koran. If there were passages in
the New Testament that exhorted Catholics to overthrow the government and establish one that would be
subject to the Pope, the ACLU would be hell bent to remove the Church from the tax-exempt rolls. The
FBI would be looking into charges of treason and sedition. If chaplains were found trying to recruit
prisoners for a Holy War, they'd be banned, yet imams are successfully recruiting American jihadists through
the prison system and are allowed to do so. This is insane.

Islamic Jihad in the Bronx. Four African-American converts to Islam, all of whom converted to Islam

Jewish Center and the Riverdale Temple), in the Bronx and a New York National Guard air base in Newburgh, New York
where they lived and attended a mosque. Why do I begin by clearly stating the race and religion of the
terrorists? Because the liberal mainstream media refuses to do so, or buries such facts on its back pages.

Racists Recruited to Guide the Jihad. The prison, as the last bastion of racism and racial

nation's two million inmates, are viewed by terrorists as a potentially bountiful source of new jihadi
Radical Islam Behind
Bars: Federal, state, county, and city prison officials have wrestled since the horror of 9/11
with the presence of radical Muslim chaplains in our country's correctional systems. To the shock of
most Americans, when they hear about it, missionaries of the ultrafundamentalist Wahhabi sect, financed by
Saudi Arabia and supporting terrorism, have a monopoly on Muslim chaplaincies behind bars.
America's Prisons: Breeding
Grounds for Muslim Converts. As controls in the US on the access of outside Imams to prisoners
have tightened, the problem of Islamist radicalization in US prisons is one that involves much more
self-radicalization. This seems to be especially the case amongst certain segments of the African-American
inmate population that has converted to Islam while in prison. It is notable that one of the more serious
Jihadist terrorist plots, uncovered in Los Angeles by local law enforcement and the FBI, involved just such individuals.
Wahhabism in the
Big House: While some Muslim advocacy groups deny that extremist indoctrination
is occurring in prisons, the evidence continues to mount. Muktar Said Ibrahim, arrested in the
attempted bombing of London's Underground on July 21, reportedly converted to Islam while
incarcerated, as did attempted shoe bomber Richard Reid before him.
Blues: The New Islam Remains The Same Old Islam. Give credit to the
Council on American Islamic Relations, the American Muslim Council and other members of

sites, synagogues and other targets in 2005 pleaded guilty Friday [12/14/2007] to conspiring to wage war against the United
States. Kevin James, 31, and Levar Haley Washington, 28, both pleaded guilty to seditious conspiracy
charges. Authorities say James, Washington and two others were part of a California prison gang cell of
radical Muslims planning attacks in the Los Angeles area.
Spewing Poison in America's
Prisons: Not long ago, an ex-con named Umar Abdul-Jalil gave a speech in which he
said the "greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House," and that the "Zionists of the

was the fact that Jalil is the chief Islamic chaplain in the New York City Department of Corrections.
After his comments became public, he was suspended from his job. But New York's Mayor Bloomberg
refused to dismiss him, claiming that his right to free speech covered such explosive comments.

been warning about — that inmates in state prison systems are particularly susceptible to radical Islamist
Primary Sources: The U.S. prison system as a
terrorist university. Despite recent cautionary examples like Jose Padilla, who is believed to have been
radicalized in prison before allegedly plotting to detonate a dirty bomb (the shoe bomber Richard Reid is thought to have
been similarly radicalized in a British prison), the Justice Department reports that safeguards against religious extremism
in federal prisons are still remarkably lax.
Wrong Kind of Prison Fellowship: In August, law enforcement officials foiled a
Jihadist plot to attack a synagogue and military recruitment center in Los Angeles. What
made the plot especially disturbing wasn't only the nationality of the organizers — they
were native-born Americans of non Middle-Eastern descent — but where the plot was
hatched: inside Folsom prison.

Criminals Recruited for "Islamic Army" in
America: Islam is gaining an impressive number of American converts in prisons, almost all African-Americans,
but political correctness has inhibited investigative reporting on the phenomenon. Less than 12 percent of
American Muslims are of Arab descent. Native-born African-Americans account for roughly 42 percent, and immigrants
from south Asia 24 percent. The others came to the U.S. from more than 100 countries.

alleged culprits converted to radical Islam in prison.
Anti-Semites Recruited to Islam. My friend Phyllis Chesler has written a column about the recruitment of
black anti-Semites in prison. The Black Muslim movement in America was racist and anti-Semitic in its origins and
in no small measure began there — legitimizing of Jew hatred in the American mainstream after it had been
driven under a rock in the post-WW II era. Because blacks were victims they could (and still can) get away
with hate speech thatothers could not. Now Muslims have made a remarkably successful bid for the same kind of

Group Ruled by Inmate in "Supermax" Jail. [Scroll down] In this case, not only did a

facility currently serves as the headquarters for this radical group. It appears FBI Director Robert
Mueller's "relevant concerns" about bringing Gitmo's terrorists to the United States are not so far-fetched
after all. So far as we know, no terror cells are currently being run from inside Guantanamo.
Department of Justice Press Release:
[Luqman Ameen] Abdullah was the leader of part of a group which calls themselves Ummah ("the brotherhood"), a
group of mostly African-American converts to Islam, which seeks to establish a separate Sharia-law governed
state within the United States. The Ummah is ruled by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as
H. Rapp Brown, who is serving a state sentence in USP Florence, CO, ADMAX, for the murder of two police
officers in Georgia.

Abdullah, the Islamic leader killed by FBI agents this week during a shootout in Dearborn. "We are
looking for justice," said Imam Mohammed Elahi of the Islamic House of Wisdom to a packed crowd that spilled

what had become of the'60s Black Panther leader, well, he converted to Islam while in prison in the 1970s.
And he apparently has not changed his mind about what he'd like to do to America.

The Nation of Islam
of Islam Looks to UFOs to Save the World. The Nation of Islam was founded in 1930 in
Detroit by a former clothing salesman, Wallace Dodd Fard (Muhammad later added to his name), a minister
whose followers believed was the personification of God on Earth. His student and successor, Elijah
Poole (who later became Elijah Muhammad), referred to Fard as a spokesman of God or Allah. NOI
followers believe they originate from a lost nation of African descent who were captured and exploited
into slavery by white oppressors referred to as "devils." It fell to the hands of Fard and then
Poole to lead African-Americans into a new self-awareness and self-independence. This black
nationalism, aimed at raising the stature of African-Americans, found a new leader in Louis Farrakhan
Religion. The Nation of Islam (NOI) was founded in 1930 by Wallace Fard Mohammad. Oddly, offical FBI
records claim that this Wallace Fard Mohammad may have been a white man. The legends and fabrications concerning
this man are too numerous to recount fully, but what is clear is that he was not black. Yet, anger at racism and
racist laws drove many blacks to his preaching, and within time, there came about the Nation of Islam with its
ridiculous theology. The origin mythos of the Nation of Islam is beyond bizarre. The NOI claims that over
six thousand years ago, an evil black scientist created the white man, by a process of selective breeding which they
call grafting. [...] In time, some members of the Nation of Islam (NOI) tried to reform, bringing the NOI into line with
Sunni Islam. The NOI was disbanded... for a while. However, Louis Farrakhan rejected the reforms, trying to
keep to the initial idiocy, and rebuilt the NOI back on its original schizoid beliefs. In 1985, Farrakhan claimed
that he took a visit to the Mother Plane (or wheel, depending on the version of the story) where he got some spiritual
insight for the future. Boiled down to its basics, the belief is that evil was created by a Jew named Yakub
(Jacob). Run that up through a black community — where some members are uneducated — and you
get a conflation that the real Jews are black, that white Jews are imposters. And you have Farrakhan pushing the
myth that Jews controlled the slave trade, when the real chief culprits of black slavery were Muslim Arabs.
Like Keith Ellison. Ellison is the first Muslim elected to the House, and he complains that the recent spate of
criticism directed at him is rooted in — ridiculous word — Islamophobia. But there is a bit more
to it than that. Ellison has long been a vocal defender of the so-called Nation of Islam, the bow-tie gang founded by
Elijah Muhammad whose relationship to orthodox Islam is approximately that of a UFO cult to the Anglican communion. The
NOI and its charismatic leader, the former calypso musician Louis Farrakhan, is an explicitly racist organization, holding as
a matter of doctrine that the white race is the result of a doomed mad-science experiment conducted by the biblical Jacob
while he was living on the isle of Patmos. Farrakhan is a true religious entrepreneur who has attempted to graft L. Ron
Hubbard's fanciful "Dianetics" onto his own cracked version of Islam, but he has mostly relied on a very old and reliable
Ten Most Hateful Americans and Why they Matter. [#10] Louis Farrakhan — Even the progressive hate
group called The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies Farrakhan's virulently racist, homophobic, anti-American and
anti-Semitic Nation of Islam (NOI) as a hate group and black separatist organization. As the leader of NOI, Farrakhan
has preached the organization's theology that blacks are superior to whites, that whites were created 6,600 years ago as a
"race of devils" by an evil black scientist named Yakub and that "white people deserve to die." Farrakhan accused Jews of
being involved in the September 11 attacks. In a speech this year, Farrakhan described "the powerful Jews" as his enemy.
Mohammed street-naming: Just when you think the NYC Council couldn't go any lower. Just when you think the
City Council couldn't go lower, along comes Councilmember Kristin Jordan-Richardson looking to rename a Harlem street
after Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, who promoted an odd mixture of black nationalism, "black capitalism" and
black separatism. And in the most pernicious of ironies, KJR proposes "The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad Way" for
the corner of West 127th Street and Malcolm X Boulevard. Speculation continues to this day about Mohammad's
involvement in the 1965 assassination of Malcolm X, who'd broken fully and public with the NOI not long
before — in part over credible accusations against Mohammad of sex with underaged girls and adulterous
activities with multiple women in the sect.

in Black History Month and January 6. The false hagiography of Malcolm X — imagining him as the
afro-pessimist ideal — committed to a violent confrontation with America continues to be promoted by our
intellectual culture. ABC News is running a documentary, Xonerated: The Murder of Malcolm X and
55 Years to Justice, designed to encourage viewers to see Malcolm X as a martyred afro-pessimist. This
vision is historically inaccurate and betrays the reality that by 1964, Malcolm X had left the Nation of Islam because he was
aware of its corrupt underpinnings and violent pathologies. In February of 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated by NOI
sympathizer and supporter Thomas Hagan because of anger regarding his departure from the NOI. Malcolm X confided
to his friend James Farmer, Jr. that he left the group but was afraid of violent threats against him from the NOI. He
emphasized this again in his last public speech on Valentine's Day 1965 in Detroit. This false hagiography played an
important role in the violence at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. An important voice and advocate for that
violence was an activist named Jaden X, AKA John Sullivan.
of Islam Calls Supporter Who Assaulted U.S. Capitol 'Brother With Such Great Potential'. The Nation of Islam
said it is investigating what caused one of its followers to stage a deadly assault against U.S. Capitol police last week,
calling the deceased attacker a "brother with such great potential" who could have been a "star in the mission of the
resurrection of our people." The group distanced itself from the attack by its supporter Noah Green, saying it
"absolutely disavow[s] this act that resulted in the senseless loss of life," and indicated that it was looking into a number
of potential explanations for "what caused this" — including mental illness, depression, Green's own claims that
his food was being poisoned, and that he was under "mind control." "I am sure, had [Green] been blessed to come through
the crisis that he was going through, he would have been a star in the mission of the resurrection of our people," said
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. "We need to know what happened to our brother."
of Islam mourns 'brother' Noah Green who died while killing Capitol cop. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan
said the group is mourning its "brother" who died assaulting Capitol cops last week — saying the cop killer could
have been a future "star" for the movement. In a statement Tuesday [4/6/2021], the Nation of Islam confirmed that Noah
Green, 25, was studying to become a full member — but blamed "potential mental illness" for him plowing a car into
two Capitol cops and then jumping out with a knife on Friday. "I am sure, had he been blessed to come through the
crisis that he was going through, he would have been a star in the mission of the resurrection of our people," Farrakhan said
in the statement. "We need to know what happened to our brother," he said.
Man who attacked police at Capitol, killing one, referenced Nation of Islam on Facebook. Police identify the
man who ran down with a car and killed a Capitol Police officer as Noah Green, a 25-year old man who reportedly referenced
followings of a radical Muslim group, the Nation of Islam, on his Facebook page. That's according to NBC News. It
is not known whether there was a racial motive in the attack by the suspect, who is black, against officer Billy Evans, who
is white; or if anti-police sentiment was a motive. A second police officer was injured in the attack on Friday
[4/2/2021]. Police say law enforcement officials shot Green after he hit the officers in his car, crashed his car into a
barricade, jumped out with a knife, and lunged at them. Green later died of his injuries.
Quickly Scrubs Capitol Assailant's Facebook Page Praising Farrakhan As Jesus. Facebook quickly removed
self-described "follower of Farrakhan" Noah Green's profile page shortly after media identified him Friday as the assailant
who was shot dead after driving into U.S. Capitol Police officers and lunging at them with a knife. Describing himself
on the since-deleted page as a follower of the Nation of Islam, the 25-year-old Green effusively praised the radical
Farrakhan and his predecessor, Elijah Muhammad, as incarnations of Jesus Christ whose teachings changed his life.
Explaining the social media's company's reason for the deletion, a spokesperson for Facebook told The Daily Wire:
"After this horrific event, our thoughts are with the Capitol Police and their loved ones. We have designated the
incident under our Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, which means we have removed the suspect's accounts from
Facebook and Instagram, and are removing any content that praises, supports, or represents the attack or the suspect.
We are in contact with law enforcement as they conduct their investigation."
removes account of Capitol attack suspect and 'Follower of Farrakhan'. Facebook removed the account of the
person identified as the deceased suspect in Friday's attack outside the U.S. Capitol, which killed one U.S. Capitol Police
officer and injured at least one more. Noah Green, said to be a 25-year-old from Indiana, described himself as a
"Follower of Farrakhan" and vocal member of the Nation of Islam. Authorities are investigating the attack and have not
yet announced a motive. Green was identified by numerous news outlets as the man who law enforcement officials say
rammed his car into at least two members of the Capitol Police, smashed the vehicle into a barricade on Constitution Avenue,
jumped out wielding a knife, and was shot and killed by police. All three were taken to a hospital.
Democrats' Farrakhan ties resurface after Capitol attacker revealed as Nation of Islam follower. Several
prominent Democrats are likely to face renewed questions over their ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan after the
suspect in Friday's Capitol attack, which left a police officer dead, was revealed to be a Nation of Islam adherent.
The deceased suspect, Noah Green, included photos and videos of Nation of Islam rallies on his Facebook page and identified
himself on the page as a "Follower of Farrakhan." Green praised Farrakhan, an outspoken anti-Semite, as "Jesus" and former
NOI leader Elijah Muhammad as "the exalted Christ." The most recent post on Green's Facebook page was a YouTube video of
a 2009 Louis Farrakhan speech titled, "The Crucifixion of Michael Jackson." In it, the Nation of Islam leader said Jesus
was not the Messiah and called Christian theology a lie.

dead has now been identified as a 25-year-old Nation of Islam follower. Noah Green, 25, who described himself as a
'Follower of Farrakhan' and said the federal government was targeting him with mind control on his now-removed Facebook page,
was identified by NBC and the New York Post as the perpetrator behind the deadly attack at the US Capitol Friday. Green
allegedly killed Capitol Police Officer Billy Evans, an 18-year veteran of the force, after mowing him and another
unidentified officer down with his blue Nissan Altima. [...] Posts on Green's now-removed social media accounts spoke of
conspiracies that the FBI and CIA were poisoning him, subjecting him to unauthorized operations and targeting him with 'mind
control'. In one post — just two hours before the attack — Green called the federal government the '#1 enemy of Black
people'. Green also wrote several posts heaping praise on Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for saving him and
describing him as 'Jesus, the Messiah' and his 'spiritual father.'
Noah Green: 5 Fast Facts. Noah Green,
a former college football player and Nation of Islam adherent, was named as the knife-wielding, now-deceased suspect who
rammed a car into a U.S. Capitol barricade, exiting with a knife and killing one Capitol police officer while injuring
another. Green's Nation of Islam beliefs emerged through a review of his now-deleted Facebook page by Heavy, although
police have not specified a motive and say they don't believe the attack was terrorism-related. On Facebook, as
recently as March 2021, the suspect expressed admiration for Elijah Muhammad, the now-deceased Nation of Islam leader who was
a mentor to Malcolm X. Green referred to himself as "Noah X." [...] He wrote that "my faith is one of the
only things that has been able to carry me through these times and my faith is centered on the belief of the Honorable
Minister Louis Farrakhan as Jesus, the Messiah, the final divine reminder in our midst."
Of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan Calls The Vaccine 'Toxic Waste,' Refers To White People As 'Crackers'. Nation
of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan advised his followers against coronavirus vaccination in a speech Saturday [12/12/2020],
calling the breakthrough vaccine "toxic waste" that would harm the black community. Farrakhan, 87, also sprinkled
several anti-white pejoratives throughout his 70-minute speech, referring to white people as "crackers" and "devils."
"We are so frightened over this Covid, now they're getting us ready for this vaccine," Farrakhan said at a virtual event for
the National Afrikan/Black Leadership Summit. "How could you allow him to stick a needle into you, saying he's helping you?"
Should Choose Their Heroes More Carefully. Louis Farrakhan is a black racist who has clearly stated his hatred
for Jews and all Whites, yet the race-baiters pretend he is a gentleman with whom one can have dinner and a polite
conversation. And hypocrites in the media refuse to hold white and black liberals to account for their close
association with Screwy Louie. He's called Screwy Louie because of his insistence that he is constantly protected by a
vast flying object and scores of smaller flying saucers. Why would any thinking black or white person consider that nut
case a hero?
Monuments: The Problem With Politically Correct History. Malcolm X, as a member of the Nation of Islam,
preached anti-Semitism and called the white man a "devil." After the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X
dismissed the murder as a case of "the chickens coming home to roost." [...] But Malcolm X changed. He visited
Mecca, where he saw people of all colors worshipping together. It changed the way he thought. He repudiated his
anger toward whites after discovering that people were more similar than they were different. He renounced the racist
ideology of the Nation of Islam, and in doing so knowingly signed his own death warrant. He was assassinated by members
of the Nation of Islam.
'Soul' Network to Air Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan July 4. The new Fox 'Soul' network has announced that
it will air Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's "Message to America" on a special July 4th program, despite his history
of racism, antisemitism, and homophobia. [...] Farrakhan's history of hateful rhetoric is well-documented. In 2018, he
compared Jews to termites. That same year, he drew criticism for defending the use of the phrase "death to America"
during a conversation with students in Iran.
Update: Nation of Islam's Farrakhan
Booked, then Canceled, on 'Fox Soul' for July 4. Fox Soul, a streaming TV channel launched earlier this year by
20th Century Fox, announced it would feature a speech by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan on the Fourth of July.
A flood of influencers, political leaders, and even CNN media personalities took to Twitter to express their shock and
denounce the programming. Those calling on the channel to cancel the program by the notorious antisemite Farrakhan
included The Simon Wiesenthal Center, CNN's Jake Tapper and ADL's Jonathan Greenblatt, among others. [Tweets] The
network quickly responded and canceled the program.
of Islam Provided Security for George Floyd Funeral. The Nation of Islam, a radical, racist, antisemitic and
homophobic hate group, provided security for the funeral of George Floyd at the Fountain of Praise Church in Houston, Texas
on Tuesday [6/9/2020], according to Rev. Remus Wright. [...] The Nation of Islam is led by Louis Farrakhan, whom the
Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes as America's "leading antisemite."
Anti-Semitic Attacks In New York Be Traced To The Nation Of Islam? The media finally seems to be paying
attention to the wave of anti-Semitic attacks in the New York area, after the sheer number and violence of those attacks
peaked last month. But while the media is beginning to acknowledge a pattern it hasn't been willing to speculate about
the source of the problem. On the contrary, a piece published Monday at Haaretz made a sustained argument that we just
don't have enough data at this point to draw conclusions: [...] Don't draw conclusions because we don't know enough.
That's generally good advice but it strikes me that we don't see the media hesitate much when the attacker can be linked with
white supremacy. In that case, the cause and possible solutions become fodder for days.
Blase Cupich Apologizes to Jewish Community After Louis Farrakhan Speech. Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich has
condemned what he called anti-Semitic statements made by Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan at a Roman Catholic
church on the city's south side. He also rebuked Catholic priest the Rev. Michael Pfleger for inviting Farrakhan
to speak without consulting Cupich. "Minister Farrakhan could have taken the opportunity to deliver a unifying message
of God's love for all his children," Cupich said in a statement. "Instead, he repeated smeared the Jewish people, using
a combination of thinly veiled discriminatory rhetoric and outright slander.
Obama Friend, Catholic Priest Invites Louis Farrakhan to Speak at Church. A radical Catholic priest and former
adviser to Barack Obama invited Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan to speak at his Chicago parish. Farrakhan was
kicked off Facebook last week for his long history of hateful comments, including denouncing "wicked Jews." In response,
Father Michael Pfleger invited Farrakhan to speak at St. Sabina Church on Thursday [5/9/2019] to defend himself from
charges of anti-Semitism. "I have been and always will be a defender of free speech as I believe we must all continue
to defend," Pfleger told a local news station after the event.
rails against 'Satanic Jews' in wake of 'Facebook jail'. Louis Farrakhan spoke at a Catholic church Thursday night [5/9/2019]
in the wake of his Facebook ban and denied that he hates Jewish people while ranting about "Satanic Jews." The Nation of Islam
leader spoke at the controversial St. Sabina Church on Chicago's South Side, where he claimed to not be a preacher of hatred while
castigating those who he said did not follow "God's word."
Media Has Decided That Louis Farrakhan Is A Far-Right Extremist Now. Louis Farrakhan has been banned from by
Facebook's network of social media, along with Alex Jones, InfoWars, and Milo Yiannopolis. The ban has presented the
media with the new and exciting opportunity to re-write history and present Farrakhan as being a problematic member of the
right. [...] I am wondering what definition of "right wing" the Washington Post is using here, because the "right
wing" has spent a lot of time pointing out just how many Democrats love to pose with and praise Farrakhan. Do Linda
Sarsour and Ilhan Omar know they've been rubbing shoulders with a notorious, right-wing extremist?
Farrakhan Is Not a Fringe Lunatic; He Is Dangerous. Louis Farrakhan believes himself to be the sole advocate
and leader of black people in the US, and even on a global scale. Unlike many radical or reactionary leaders, he's very
articulate and probably the most charismatic of them all. His manner of speech is very attractive, intelligible,
eloquent, and intriguing. It's easy to see how black people from all walks of life could get hooked by his words.
Additionally, Farrakhan is very relatable: He was raised by a single mother, and doesn't know much about his father,
and he and his family struggled financially while he was growing up. He's also very talented; he's an excellent
violinist and doesn't have a bad voice. Over the years, Farrakhan would speak to African-American crowds without a
filter, letting them know that it's OK to hate, especially if their hatred is directed at the white man and Jews.
Regarding the Jews, his mad obsession is very plain.
tells Chicago: I am Jesus, I am the Messiah. Louis Farrakhan told a crowd in Chicago in February that he
is Jesus, the Messiah. "God does not love this world," he said in his Nation of Islam Saviour's Day keynote address.
"God never sent Jesus to die for this world. Jesus died because he was 2,000 years too soon to bring about the end of
the civilization of the Jews. He never was on a cross, there was no Calvary for that Jesus." Farrakhan went on
to claim that he is the real son of God, sent to save the world.
is Nancy Pelosi going to rid the House Foreign Relations Committee of Ilhan Omar? Making herself Louis
Farrakhan's "sweetheart" as he put it, Rep. Ilhan Omar isn't going anywhere with the apologies on her third incident of
anti-semitism. Farrakhan, you recall, didn't want Omar, whom he called "sweetheart" to apologize for those, and sure
enough, she's not apologizing. What I see instead in the miasma of tweets on Twitter, is a bid to deflect attention,
with she and her supporters attempting to present the "narrative" of Omar as the "real victim," calling attention to a few
bad actors, some anonymous, who've made threats against her and drawn a negative reaction and lawmen looking for them.
Omar's anti-Semitism, however, is being permitted to stand.
Women's March, Farrakhan, and Black Anti-Semitism. Last month on "The View," Meghan McCain confronted women's
march co-president Tamika Mallory over her relationship with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Mallory had
attended Farrakhan's recent "Saviour's Day" sermon. Mallory also posted a photo on Facebook of Farrakhan with his arm
around her shoulder. Mallory captioned it, "Thank God this man is alive and doing well. He is definitely the
GOAT. Happy Birthday @louisfarrakhan!"
Tlaib wrote column for Louis Farrakhan publication in 2006. Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib once
wrote a column for the Final Call, an official publication of the Nation of Islam and its notorious leader Louis
Farrakhan. Tlaib, a Palestinian American, has been facing criticism ever since her arrival in Congress and promise to
impeach President Trump using profane language. She later came under bipartisan criticism from Jewish groups for
appearing with radical anti-Israel activists during her swearing in ceremony in Michigan, with some activists previously
praising terror group Hezbollah and Palestinian terrorists, and saying that Israel has no right to exist.
does the left still associate with Louis Farrakhan? When and how did it become acceptable to be an
anti-Semite? When did it become okay to socialize with and even praise a Jew hater? I am referring, of course, to
Louis Farrakhan, who spouts the most vile things about Jews yet retains the admiration of many on the left, including,
notably, leaders of the Women's March. They have now separated themselves from Farrakhan's bigotry but not the man
himself. He understands. They are doing what Jews want. To an extent, they are. It has taken some
pressure to get Women's March co-chairs Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour and others to distance themselves from Farrakhan's
views. Yet Mallory, for one, will not condemn the man who holds these views. In this, she has plenty of company.
On the stage with Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin's funeral in September were Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Bill Clinton.
Franklin, apparently untroubled by Farrakhan's Jew hatred, had a friendly relationship with him, and he was at the funeral for
that reason. Still, you could not imagine Jackson, Sharpton or Clinton sharing the stage with David Duke.
March Leader Defends Decision to Praise Farrakhan as the 'Greatest of All Time'. During a Monday morning [1/14/2019]
appearance on ABC's The View, Women's March co-chair Tamika Mallory defended her past praise for notorious anti-Semite Louis
Farrakhan by drawing a distinction between his hateful rhetoric and his political advocacy on behalf of African-Americans.
"I didn't call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric. I called him the greatest of all time because of what
he's done in black communities," Mallory said when asked about a February social-media post in which she labeled Farrakhan the "GOAT."
demands end to federal funding of Nation of Islam. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., Monday called on the
Department of Justice to immediately halt federal funding to the Nation of Islam, after the Washington Examiner first
reported that the group has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the government to teach religious studies programs
to prison inmates. In a letter to the Justice Department obtained by the Washington Examiner, Buchanan called the
report "disturbing" and said the government's funding of the openly anti-Semitic black separatist group was "downright immoral."
Pays Nation of Islam to Proselytize in Prisons. It would be nice if the federal government would pile up our
money in a giant mountain and set it on fire. Or at least, it would be an improvement over using it to pay Nation of
Islam goons to radicalized prison inmates with their vociferously hostile ideology. [...] Even regular Muslims are less
antagonistic than the Nation of Islam variety. Farrakhan et al. hate us not only for being infidels, but
explicitly also for being white. Nation of Islamaniac Verbon Muhammad of Monroe, Louisiana, whom our government gave
over $60,000 to provide "religious services," confirms, "We don't allow white people in our meetings, period."
Louis Farrakhan Is Getting Cash From
U.S. Government. Our federal government has been paying the Nation Of Islam led by Louis Farrakhan to teach
religious study programs in federal prisons. Per the Washington Examiner, "the Nation of Islam and its leaders have
received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the U.S. government since 2008. Its leaders have received at least $364,500
in contracts and awards from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons and the Department of Justice between fiscal 2008 and fiscal 2019.
March hires Nation of Islam to do security. Yes, they pay a hate group. Practically every sentence here
is a bombshell, and I see no reason to doubt any of it. The accusation that the current board of the March is siphoning
funds for their own use is something that needs to be investigated. But within the tsunami of complaints is an
accusation that would explain why the leaders of the Women's March do not want to repudiate Louis Farrakhan and instead try
to downplay his obvious hate. They have a financial relationship with him. The Women's March is paying an
antisemitic, anti-gay, anti-white, misogynist hate group — while at the same time pretending to adhere to Unity
Principles that are against everything Nation of Islam stands for.
of the articles that justify/minimize Farrakhan's hate. In the wake of #MeToo icon Alyssa Milano saying that
the leaders of the Women's March have not distanced themselves enough from antisemite Louis Farrakhan, faux person of color
Linda Sarsour recommends an article at Medium as a "must read for white sisters." Written by Women's March coordinator
Cassady Fendlay it claims that Milano is a racist by her showing concern for antisemitism. [...] The article goes on to say,
sure, Farrakhan says things that are antisemitic, but look at all the wonderful things he does! [...] Didn't Bill Cosby also
do some wonderful things? Does that make up for his being a rapist?
Farrakhan Chants 'Death to America' in Iran. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan led a chant of "Death to
America!" on a solidarity visit to Iran this weekend, according to Iranian news sources. He also led a chant of "Death
to Israel!" Farrakhan visited Iran ahead of the renewal of U.S. sanctions against the regime at midnight on November 5.
The renewed sanctions are the result of the American withdrawal from the agreement negotiated by the Obama administration,
which purported to prevent Iran's development of nuclear weapons but merely delated it.
Farrakhan 'Termites' Video Removed From Facebook. A video posted to the Facebook account of Louis Farrakhan in
which the Nation of Islam leader compares Jews to termites was removed for violating the social media platforms hate speech
policies. It remains posted on Twitter, which said last week that it does not violate company policies.
Farrakhan's termite problem.
How long, we wonder, did it take for Farrakhan to come up with that quip, about his not being an anti-Semite, but rather
"anti-termite." Words to choke on, you would think. Lucky for him, had he indeed choked, the Heimlich Maneuver
would have saved him, as it has already saved millions around the world, thanks to Jewish scientist Henry Heimlich. But
no thanks from Farrakhan and the multitudes who think like Farrakhan, and who know not the debt they owe to such "termites"
for their longevity.
Farrakhan: 'I'm Not An Anti-Semite. I'm Anti-Termite.'. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan addressed a gathering
in Detroit on Sunday [10/14/2018] to mark the 23rd anniversary of the Million Man March, and used it as a platform to launch yet another
attack on Jews, calling them "termites." Farrakhan posted clips of his speech to his Twitter account on Tuesday.
Farrakhan won't be suspended by Twitter despite anti-Semitic tweet. Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam leader who in a
recent tweet said he was not prejudiced against Jewish people but was simply "anti-Termite," will be allowed to continue to use the
social media platform. Farrakhan took to the site on Tuesday [10/16/2018] by posting a video of himself speaking at an event in
Detroit, during which he addressed "the members of the Jewish community that don't like me." In a caption to the video, he
wrote: "I'm not an anti-Semite. I'm anti-Termite."
Candidate Held Event With Nation of Islam Members Outside Radical Mosque. Democratic congressional candidate
Ayanna Pressley appeared outside a mosque that has played host to numerous radical figures during her primary campaign this
year. Dr. Wesley Muhammad gave a lecture at Boston's Muhammad Mosque No. 11 in February entitled "The Secret
Relationship between Blacks and Jews: The Homosexual Conspiracy!" Months earlier, anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist
Christopher Bollyn gave a lecture on his views that Zionists and Israelis were behind the 9/11 attacks and Randy Muhammad
spoke about "The Truth About UFO's." Pressley appeared outside the mosque in July. The Boston city councilor made
headlines earlier this week when she sent yet another shock to the Democratic establishment by defeating ten-term congressman
Michael Capuano. Unlike previous upsets of moderate Democrats such as New York's Joe Crowley, Capuano was a strident
liberal and a member of the Progressive Caucus.
"N Word" Tape Went Public and the Media Covered It Up. Obama's own equivalent of the "N Word" tape was released
after his time in office. It was a photo of him posing with Louis Farrakhan, the racist and anti-Semitic leader of the
Nation of Islam. Farrakhan had praised Hitler and was the head of a hate group that believes white people are devils,
created by genetic engineering, who will be wiped out. That's a whole lot worse than a racial slur. (Obama's mentor
Jeremiah Wright, whose black nationalist church the Obamas had attended, used his own racial slurs during services.) The
photo was released. And the media embargoed it. A handful of publications mentioned it. To this date, no
reporter has directly asked Obama about it.
Candidate for Governor Linked to Nation of Islam. Michigan gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed was recently
a special guest speaker at a fund raiser for a Nation of Islam (NOI)-affiliated mosque. The Muslim Center Mosque and
Community Center states that it was "founded under the leadership of the late Imam W. Deen Mohammed, a Nation of Islam Leader
and son of its founder, Elijah Muhammad." This is not the first time El-Sayed has spoken at a fundraiser for the mosque.
In October 2017, El-Sayed spoke at their annual fundraiser, alongside radical left-wing activist and sharia apologist Linda
Sarsour. NOI has a long history of extremism. Imam Deen Mohammad's former assistant Imam Mubarak affiliates himself
with the mosque and regularly posts to the Center's Facebook page, including posts describing Jews and Christians as untrustworthy.
Gives Farrakhan a Platform. There's no room for Roseanne in Hollywood. But there's always room for an
anti-Semitic and homophobic racist who praised Hitler. As long as he's a black nationalist. [...] Netflix is a hyper-leftist
mega-corporation. Farrakhan had praised Hitler as a great man. But clearly there's no contradiction here.
Democrats' Ties To Anti-Semite Farrakhan. The New York Times whitewashed several Democrats' ties to Nation of
Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in an article that ran in Wednesday's paper. Farrakhan is a notorious racist and
anti-Semite who has praised Adolf Hitler as a "very great man," called white people "devils," blamed Jews in Hollywood for
gay marriage and described Jews as "satanic." Several congressional Democrats have ties to Farrakhan and the leaders of
Women's March have publicly declared their support for him.
Legal Update: "What
is the NYPD Hiding?". This is a story of a cop and the case that haunts him. Forty-six years ago, NYPD
Patrolman Phillip Cardillo was gunned down inside Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam Mosque #7 in Harlem. After a
lengthy investigation strewn with roadblocks Detective Randy Jurgensen made an arrest. But evidence had disappeared,
the crime scene had been erased, and a special prosecutor later determined there was "a concerted and orchestrated effort"
by senior members of the NYPD to impede the murder investigation. Jurgensen — a legendary NYPD detective who
helped put away five cop-killers — believes he got the right man. Much of the law-enforcement community in
New York agrees with him. But the trial of Lewis 17X Dupree resulted in a hung jury.
of Obama and Farrakhan was suppressed at request of black lawmakers, claims journalist. Barack Obama posed for
a photo in 2005 with Louis Farrakhan, the virulently anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam movement, and the
photographer said he suppressed its publication at the request of a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. The
future president was the U.S. senator from Illinois at the time. The Trice Edney News Wire first published the photo on
Jan. 20. It quotes the photographer, Askia Muhammad, saying that after snapping the picture at a meeting of the
Congressional Black Caucus, an unidentified member of the caucus asked him immediately not to run the photo.
Sharpton's Group And Black Lives Matter Team Up For Pro-Farrakhan Protest. Several black activist groups are
holding a protest on Monday in defense of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite and racist revealed
to have close ties to prominent Democratic politicians and activists. Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panther Party
and the National Action Network are among the groups spearheading the protest, the organizers said in a press release.
The groups are protesting a House resolution, introduced by Republican Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita, that formally condemns
Farrakhan's anti-Semitism. The activists instead want lawmakers to pass a resolution condemning President Donald Trump.
Voters Like Louis Farrakhan. Everyone Else, Not So Much. Members of the Congressional Black Caucus and a
leader of the Women's March are catching heat after information surfaced that they met with or appeared at events with Louis
Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite. While a majority of voters don't like the leader of the Nation of Islam, black
voters see him in a more favorable light. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 21% of Likely
U.S. Voters have at least a Somewhat Favorable impression of Farrakhan, including eight percent (8%) who have a Very
Favorable opinion of him. Fifty-three percent (53%) view Farrakhan unfavorably, with 32% who have a Very Unfavorable
view of him. But another 26% are not sure.
Resolution Pressures Dems to Denounce anti-Semitic Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan. House Republicans
are calling on Democrats to condemn Louis Farrakhan, the anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam (a designated hate
group), in the wake of revelations that eight Democratic members have ties to him — including the third-ranking
member in the House and the DNC's second-in-command. Those members are Reps Keith Ellison (D-MN), Maxine Waters (D-CA),
Danny Davis (D-Il), Al Green (D-TX), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Andre Carson (D-IN), Gregory Meeks (D-NY), and James E. (Jim)
Left's Fake Anti-Semitism and its Real Anti-Semitism. Rep. Danny Davis defended his ties to Farrakhan, the
anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam, by arguing, "The world is so much bigger than Farrakhan and the Jewish question
and his position on that." [...] But the national media chose to ignore Rep. Davis' remarks. It embargoed the
story, just as it embargoed the recent release of a photo of Obama and Farrakhan and the controversy over Women's March
leaders' ties to Farrakhan. And Farrakhan, who once praised Hitler, has been venting a stream of anti-Semitic invective
at the "Satanic" Jews because he knows that the national media won't touch him. The controversy over Obama, Davis,
Keith Ellison, Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory has played out in the Jewish and conservative media. But no one in
the mainstream media is willing to ask why Obama, the No. 2 man at the DNC, the Congressional Black Caucus and the next
generation of intersectional feminist leaders are comfortable hanging out with a racist who suggested that Jews use pot to
make black men gay.
CNN's Bizarre Blackout
On Democrats' Farrakhan Scandal. CNN has refused to inform its audience of a growing scandal tying prominent
Democratic politicians and activists to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite. At
least eight Democrats are known to have met with Farrakhan, who routinely calls Jews "satanic" and has said that white people
"deserve to die." Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, misled the
public for years about his relationship with Farrakhan, new reporting has shown and The Washington Post has acknowledged.
Illinois Rep. Danny Davis, a Democrat, defended Farrakhan as an "outstanding human being" and admitted to having a
personal relationship with him in a pair of interviews with this reporter.
York Times mocked over reminder why Louis Farrakhan is back in news. When the paper tweeted a link to its story
with the headline asking why Farrakhan was back in the news, Free Beacon reporter Alex Griswold responded, "Because we had to
shame you into covering a major story, basically." Another user replied, "Imagine their headline if the GOP was holding
strategy sessions w/David Duke. The media is purposely not covering this story because they don't want to hurt
Democrats midterm chances. It's obvious and pathetic!" One reader responded: "That is easy. He is a
racist religious bigot who is being embraced by people who claimed to be against both those things," and another added, "If
other publications had not forced the issue, your silence about this racist and his ties to the Democratic Party would have
continued." "Better is why the racist New York Times doesn't treat liberal racists like Farrakhan the same as it does
anyone that opposes open borders as racist? Racial double standards are racism," one reader fired back.
Jewish Coalition Calls On Democrats To Resign Over Farrakhan Ties. The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) has
called on seven House Democrats to resign after The Daily Caller News Foundation revealed their direct ties to notorious
anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan. California Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee, Illinois Rep. Danny Davis,
Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, New York Rep. Gregory Meeks and Texas Rep. Al
Green have all attended meetings with Farrakhan while in Congress, according to photos, videos and witness accounts of the
meetings reviewed by TheDCNF.
RNC Chair Calls On DNC Chair
To Address Party's Ties To 'America's Leading Anti-Semite' Louis Farrakhan. Republican National Committee
chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called on her Democratic National Committee counterpart, Tom Perez, Friday to address the ties DNC
vice chair Keith Ellison and other members of the party have to Louis Farrakhan. "Keith Ellison's long pattern of lies
about his ongoing relationship with Louis Farrakhan, who the Anti-Defamation League calls 'America's leading anti-Semite,'
has put a stain on the Democrat Party," McDaniel said in a press release. "Anti-Semitism has no place in American
politics, Tom Perez must address this issue." As head of the Nation of Islam, Farrakhan has a long history of making
deeply anti-Semitic comments.
Farrakhan and the
Left. "The powerful Jews are my enemy," remarked Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan at his organization's annual
"Saviours' Day" celebration in Chicago in late February. That was just one of several choice anti-semitic tropes. Another
one, oddly stated in the third person: "The FBI has been the worst enemy of black advancement. Can you prove that
Farrakhan? You see, the Jews have control over those agencies of government." With the exception of CNN's Jake Tapper,
hardly anyone in the mainstream media seemed to notice or care. Farrakhan's anti-Jewish rhetoric is well known and has a long
history. In 1984, for instance, he said that "Hitler was a very great man"; and in 1985, "Don't you forget, when it's God who
puts you in the ovens, it's forever." What's far less known about Farrakhan is the warmth with which he's embraced by some
influential members of the American progressive movement.
House Democrat Shared Stage With Farrakhan, Now Refuses To Denounce. The third-highest ranking House Democrat
shared a stage with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious racist and anti-Semite, and has refused to condemn
the hate group leader. South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn attended a 2011 event with Farrakhan and shared the stage
with him, even after Jewish groups voiced their opposition to Clyburn attending the event. Clyburn told the Final Call,
a Nation of Islam publication, that he was "not bothered in the least bit" by criticisms of his attendance at the event.
As the assistant Democratic leader, Clyburn is the third-highest ranked Democrat in the House. He declined to condemn
Farrakhan in a statement released to The Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday [3/8/2018].
refuses to comment on Louis Farrakhan's anti-Semitic tweets. Twitter has refused to comment on anti-Semitic
tweets from Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, including one where he writes "the Jews have control over those agencies
[FBI] of government." When reached for a response by Fox News, a Twitter spokesman said the company does not comment on
individual accounts. The spokesman pointed Fox News to the company's help center, where it details its enforcement
options and its approach to enforcement philosophy and policy development.
Keith Ellison Has Been Lying About His Relationship With Farrakhan. This has been a long time coming. Today [3/9/2018],
Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler looks at Rep. Keith Ellison's relationship with Louis Farrakhan since 2006, when he
supposedly denounced him and had nothing else to do with him, and awards Ellison four Pinocchios. To really appreciate this story
you need to look back to late 2016. After the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the DNC was in shambles. For a time, it seemed
Rep. Keith Ellison was set to be the party's next DNC Chair. And then his past involvement with Louis Farrakhan and the
Nation of Islam came back to haunt him. At the time, Ellison claimed he had denounced Farrakhan and had no contact with him
since 2006 when he first ran for Congress.
Dem denounces Farrakhan's remarks. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) ripped Louis Farrakhan early Thursday
after the Nation of Islam leader said in a tweet that the "Jews have control" over government agencies. "This is
unacceptable in a progressive coalition or any political coalition. Antisemitism has no place in American
society. We must reject this, left right and center," Schatz said.
Says Other Democrats Don't Care About Ties To Anti-Semite Farrakhan. Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith
Ellison believes other Democrats don't care about his ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious
anti-Semite. Ellison is a former Nation of Islam member who swore when he ran for Congress in 2006 that he had left
Farrakhan behind in his past. Despite those promises, Ellison attended multiple meetings with Farrakhan while in
Congress, as revealed by The Daily Caller. Ellison is currently the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee
(DNC). Ellison's fellow Democrats don't care about his meetings with the famed anti-Semite, he told the Washington Post
for a story on Wednesday [3/7/2018].
You Know That Jews Control The FBI, Right? Perhaps Louis Farrakhan thought the time was ripe for a Nation of
Islam campaign against the FBI, considering the controversies in which it's been mired. Instead of sticking to a
coherent and fact-based argument, though, the leader of the NoI instead declared before a cheering audience that the problem
with the FBI is the Joooooooooos. After accusing the FBI of being the biggest foe of "black advancement,"
Farrakhan explained, "See, the Jews have control over those agencies of government," to scattered applause and shouts of
encouragement. He added, "If you go to work tomorrow and your bosses are Jews, don't tell them where you've been."
One might be tempted to consider the whole thing a joke that had been taken out of context, but no — Farrakhan
himself underscores the message in his own tweet of this clip: [...]
must be made to pay a price for coziness with Farrakhan. The narrative that the left has created about
President Trump being a racist and the GOP as the home of David Duke can be flipped on its head and used to great electoral
advantage, if only Republicans will take full advantage of the opportunity presented by revelations concerning deep ties of
key Democrat officials with Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan's open and proud hatred of Jews was once again on display two
weeks ago, when he delivered his "Saviours' Day" address, condemning "Satanic Jews" (again).
The Farrakhan exception.
[Q]uite recently, and now getting prime attention, Louis Farrakhan held another rally — and there he goes again,
blasting the Jewish people. Pure hate speech. Ordinarily people like that get shunned. They do, if they
speak contrarily about Blacks, gays, transgenders and Muslims — but these are Jews he's talking about, and like I
said, it's routine, habit-forming. This is happening in America? Yes, America, where we expect to "breathe free."
Media Decision To Ignore Democrat Ties To Farrakhan Reveals Toxic Bias. What would the establishment media
reaction be if tens of members of Congress met with one of America's most notorious racists and anti-Semites and refused to
denounce him? Or if the leaders of one of America's hottest social movements embraced him? If the bigot in
question is Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan — who has blamed Jews for the 9/11 attacks, said white people
"deserve to die" and praised Adolf Hitler — the answer seems to be ... not much, at least not when those embracing
him are Democrats and progressives.
Democrats Have Direct Ties To Notorious Anti-Semite. At least seven House Democrats are known to have direct
ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite and racist who has called Jews "satanic" and said
white people "deserve to die." California Reps. Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee, Illinois Rep. Danny Davis,
Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, New York Rep. Gregory Meeks and Texas Rep. Al
Green have all attended meetings with Farrakhan while in Congress, according to photos, videos and witness accounts of the
meetings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Group to Lead National School Walkout March 14 Against Guns. An anti-Trump organization linked to Nation of
Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is leading the "National School Walkout" on March 14, in which millions of children will be
instructed to demonstrate against guns. The "Women's March" organization, which conducted nationwide "pink [...] hat"
protests the day after President Donald Trump's inauguration last year, is leading the National School Walkout in
coordination with the national Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
Nationalists and Black Nationalists. Multiple media sources are calling the racist rally, formally known as
Unite the Right, a white nationalist event. Every year, however, the Nation of Islam, which espouses black separatism,
holds a Saviour's Day event, usually in Chicago, to celebrate the birthday of the NOI's founder, Wallace Fard Muhammad, who
claimed that black people are divine and whites are wicked. According to Muhammad, whites were created by an evil
scientist named Yakub. But because blacks are part of the victim class, according to establishment media mores,
Saviour's Day can never be a black nationalist rally. You can laugh off the Nation of Islam, which has about 50,000
followers, but one of its members, the since-executed John Allen Muhammad, was one of the Beltway Snipers who murdered
17 people — whites and blacks — in 2002. The other killer was John Lee Malvo, a teenaged
illegal immigrant from Jamaica. One of the duo's motives for the murders was to extort money in order to open a
community for homeless black youths to be trained as terrorists in Canada.
Why Doesn't Mainstream Media Demand Democrats
Denounce Farrakhan? Sometimes media bias has nothing to do with what reporters say, but what they don't say. Recently,
we've learned additional members of the Democratic Party have a relationship with the racist and anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan, whose hatred
has been a well-known fact for well over a decade. But when Farrakhan released new hatred this past weekend the MSM did not question
his relationship with the party.
March Leaders Refuse To Condemn Farrakhan After Antisemitic Speech. High-profile leaders of the popular Women's
March movement are refusing to condemn an antisemitic speech Louis Farrakhan delivered last week. According to the
Anti-Defamation League, prominent Women's March figures Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour have failed to speak
out against the Nation of Islam leader after he described the Jewish community as his "enemy" during a speech at the 2018
Saviour's Day event in Chicago.
Farrakhan: 'Jews are my enemy,' 'white folks are going down'. Rev. Louis Farrakhan gave a Saviours' Day 2018
Address on Sunday [2/25/2018] in which he declared that "the powerful Jews are my enemy," and "white folks are going down."
The Chicago speech went widely unnoticed at first, but garnered more traction on Wednesday when excerpts were tweeted out.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper, for example, tweeted out a thread of the keynote speech with some of his quotes, and said Farrakhan was
more dangerous than other "alt-reich" leaders because he "has a much larger following and elected officials meet with him openly."
Attended Private Dinner With Iran's President And Louis Farrakhan. Three Democratic congressmen attended a
private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals. Reps. Keith Ellison of
Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a
notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam. Iran is the number one state sponsor of
terrorism, according to the United States government, which has listed the Islamic Republic as a state sponsor of terror
since 1984. Rouhani was in New York for a United Nations meeting and held the dinner party just hours after speaking
to the UN General Assembly.
From Farrakhan With Love.
Two years before Barack Obama announced his candidacy for President of the United States, he met with the leader of a hate
group who had praised Hitler and declared that the Jews, "can't say 'Never Again' to God, because when he puts you in the
ovens, you're there forever." The previous year, Obama had launched his national profile with a DNC speech proclaiming,
"There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America."
And there he was, smiling alongside Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, the largest black separatist organization
in the country, whose theology claimed that white people were genetically engineered devils who were due to be destroyed by flying
saucers. Also posing with Farrakhan and Obama were Mustapha Farrakhan, Joshua Farrakhan and Leonard Farrakhan Muhammad, his
security chief and son, his other son, and his chief of staff and son-in-law. Also there was Willie F. Wilson, a
Farrakhan ally, who had led a protest against an Asian business by a mob shouting, "F___ the Chinks". "We forgave
Mr. Chan," he told reporters after that incident. "If we didn't forgive him, we would have cut his head off
and rolled it down the street." Hope and change.
DNC: America's Most Notorious Hate Group. The runner-up to [Thomas] Perez in the race for DNC Chairman last
January was Congressman Keith Ellison, who has a long history of openly supporting Nation Of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan,
who in turn has a long, well-documented history of venom-laced denunciations of "white devils" and Jewish "bloodsuckers."
Even though Farrakhan has referred to none other than Adolf Hitler as "a very great man" who "rose Germany up from nothing,"
Ellison has described Farrakhan as "a role model for black youth"; "a sincere, tireless, and uncompromising advocate of the
black community and other oppressed people around the world"; and "a central voice for our collective aspirations."
'Kang' Murders Three in Anti-White Spree. Black anti-white terrorist Kori Ali Muhammad opened fire in downtown
Fresno, California midday Tuesday [4/18/2017], murdering three white victims before being arrested by local police.
Muhammad yelled "Allahu Akbar," Arabic for "God is greatest," during his arrest, explaining to law enforcement he hates white
people. He was already wanted for the Thursday shooting of a Motel 6 security guard, also in Fresno. Despite
Muhammad using a traditional Islamic chant, Sayed Ali Ghazvini, the imam of the Islamic Cultural Center of Fresno, denies
Muhammad was a member of his organization. Which makes sense, since Kori Ali Muhammad lionizes Wallace Fard Muhammad,
the charlatan — and nebulously black — founder of the Nation of Islam.
to Obama: Let Trump Do Want He Wants, You Failed Inner City Blacks. Sunday at the Men's Day program
hosted at Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, DC, Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan said to President
Barack Obama, "Your people are suffering and dying in the streets," of Chicago, so "you failed to do what should have been
done." Farrakhan continued by saying it is time to let Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump do "what he wants
to because he is not destroying your legacy."
coterie of anti-Semites. [Scroll down] Keith Ellison is the American face of stealth Jihad and another "first" phenomenon on two counts.
He is the first black and the first Muslim congressman from Minnesota. Keith is also a converso, a former Catholic, like Lew Alcindor,
converted to Islam when black rage and Islam was hip. Congressman Ellison is most famous for taking his oath of office from Nancy Pelosi in
Washington on a Koran. Ellison has been cagey about his conversion, but his ties to the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan are matters of
record. He has written in support of Farrakhan on more than one occasion under a pseudonym. Ellison also has extensive personal,
political, and financial ties to the American Muslim jihad net through such organizations as Council on American Islamic Relations,
Muslim American Society, Islamic Society of North America, Muslim public Affairs Council, North American Imams Federation, and the notorious
Saudi funded American Open University in Virginia, a kind of seminary for Muslim clerics. Former AOU chairman Ja'far Sheikh Idris
considers American democracy to be "the antithesis of Islam." He also claims that no one "can be a Muslim who makes or freely
accepts or believes that anyone has the right to make or accept legislation that is contrary to divine (Islamic) law."
of Islam's Louis Farrakhan Offers to Protect Beyoncé if Police Won't. Nation of Islam leader Louis
Farrakhan has vowed to provide protection to pop star Beyoncé after at least one police union pledged to boycott the
singer in the wake of her politically and racially charged halftime performance at the Super Bowl earlier this month.
Farrakhan delivered a sermon in Detroit Sunday [2/21/2016] on the last day of the Nation of Islam's annual convention, telling
a packed audience at the Joe Louis Arena that "white folks" didn't "know how to deal with" Beyoncé's halftime performance,
which featured a tribute to the militant (and often anti-law enforcement) Black Panther Party.
of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan reportedly to speak at Iran drone rally. Louis Farrakhan, the controversial
leader of the Nation of Islam, is set to speak Thursday [2/11/2016] at a rally in Iran for one of its new drones, Iranian
media report. The planned ceremony marks 37 years after Iran's Islamic Revolution, in which Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
seized control from the Shah, who had gone into exile. Both Farrahkan and Iranian president Hassan Rouhani will speak, Iran's
Tasnim News Agency reports. The homegrown drone will go on display along with a ballistic missile and a satellite carrier,
organizer Asghar Abkhezr told the news agency. Farrakhan and Rouhani met for dinner as recently as 2013, in New York City.
and the Philly Police Shooting: Why Hide His Light Beneath a Basket? Just a few months ago, Farrakhan told a gathering at a packed Baptist Church
about how he wanted to find 10,000 black men to "rise up and kill those who kill us." He of course was talking about "the enemy" who has oppressed black
people for "400 years." He went on to say how the Koran "prescribed" black people to take violent action against those who enslaved them —
white people and cops, his favorite targets. All he needed was a few more black men who realized that "death is sweeter than life under tyranny" to get the
ball rolling. [...] Like the Philly gunman, Farrakhan is down with ISIS. He even brags about it: ISIS wants "America to send some troops back so they
can send them back in body bags," Farrakhan said in October in a speech that Breitbart, but few others, followed.
Farrakhan hate fest threatens 'reparations, or
else!' Louis Farrakhan commemorated the 20th anniversary of the so-called "Million Man March" Saturday [10/10/2015] with the
kind of hate fest that would have made the KKK or skinheads proud. The rally was called "Justice or Else!" — a threat aimed
at the heart of America. This demagogue has openly incited violence against whites and police in the lead-up to the event, and a number
of speakers Saturday followed suit. Tony Russell of Hands Up United Ferguson said the "or else!" in the event's title is a threat for
more riots if their demands aren't met. Farrakhan and Black Lives Matter know that as long as Obama is president, he will never
authorize federal authorities to arrest black racists.
of Thousands Rally With Farrakhan in DC to Chants of "DOWN, DOWN USA". Louis Farrakhan is a hate monger who
plays on peoples' fears and hate and uses it to demonize whites, Jews, police and anyone else in his crosshairs.
Farrakhan's speech reached back hundreds of years to find the injustice he thinks people bear in the present day.
He said they — minorities — are denied the "human right of self-determination." Leftists made
these extremists into a permanently injured class who think they are entitled and who live as victims. The damage
the left has down will probably take years to counter if it can be countered at all. Farrakhan compared the
Republican presidential field to a "whore" who was prostituting herself for money. This despicable human being
called America "hypocritical" for challenging human rights issues abroad, and said Jews "have no forgiveness in them."
Farrakhan: The American
System Has to Be Taken Down. Friday in Cleveland, OH at a "Justice Or Else!" rally for "10.10.15," the 20th anniversary
of The Million Man March gathering being held in Washington, D.C. on October 10, 2015, Louis Farrakhan said for real racial
justice to occur the way God intended the whole American system "has to be taken down" as evidenced by President Barack Obama being
elected and still not being able to change anything.
of Islam's Farrakhan meets with Eminem in Detroit. The head of the Nation of Islam, Minister Louis Farrakhan,
met politicians, pastors and a police chief during his visit to Detroit last week. But it's his unprecedented meeting
with rapper Eminem over a 2½-hour dinner in his Detroit hotel room that has garnered the most attention. The leader
of the Detroit-founded group was in Southfield and Detroit in recent weeks to talk about his plans for the 20th anniversary
of the Million Man March with an event called Justice or Else. In his meeting with Eminem on Aug. 25, Farrakhan talked
about the responsibilities that stars like Eminem have toward society, "to influence people positively," said Troy Muhammad, a
student minister who heads the Detroit branch of the Nation of Islam.
Mentor of Obama's Minister Shrieks
"White People Deserve to Die" in Latest Sermon. Likely only a very few political junkies (i.e., losers) like myself remember
the close personal relationship between Barack Obama's longtime minister, Jeremiah Wright, and the virulent racist Louis Farrakhan.
Obama marinated in the hateful, anti-white, anti-semitic rhetoric of Wright for 20 years, which were mere echoes of statements by
Nation of Islam chief Farrakhan. It turns out that Farrakhan has been on one of his verbal jihads of late, this time calling for
an ethnic cleansing of white people.
Hasn't Louis Farrakhan Been Arrested Yet? It's been nearly a week since Nation of
Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan called on his followers to rise up and kill their perceived enemies,
and the silence of the Obama Justice Department has been deafening. Likewise, the MSM has been
shamefully quiet, too — as if this is acceptable behavior for the leader of a 50,000-strong
denomination. It most certainly isn't.
'We Must Rise Up And Kill Those Who Kill Us'. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan
said during a fiery speech in Miami last week black Americans "must rise up and kill those who kill
us" if the federal government does not "intercede in our affairs." The 82-year-old Farrakhan told
a crowd at Mt. Zion church he was looking for "10,000 fearless men who say death is sweeter than
continued life under tyranny."
We Must Rise Up And Kill Those Who Kill Us; Stalk Them And Kill Them. Last week in
Miami at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan said he was looking for
"10,000 fearless men" to "rise up and kill those who kill us; stalk them and kill them and let them
feel the pain of death that we are feeling!" Farrakhan said "I'm looking for 10,000 in the midst
of a million. Ten thousand fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny.
Death is sweeter than continuing to live and bury our children while the white folks give our killers hamburgers. [...]"
The Editor says...
First of all, why is a Muslim speaking at an allegedly Baptist Church? Second, if Mr. Farrakhan is urging his followers
to "rise up and kill those who kill us," is he commenting on the abortion of
millions of black babies over the last 40 years? He's either talking about abortion clinics or he's engaging in
racist hate speech. Which is it?
Farrakhan: "We Will
Kill You All". After a recent speech given by Minister Louis Farrakhan, he took questions
from the audience. One woman goes to the mic and asks Farrakhan about leadership and what she needs
to do to be a good leader. Farrakhan gives her an answer about leadership and then goes into a [sic]
angry diatribe about those who would come against them... "We will kill you all" [Audio clip]
Of Islam and Gangs To Embattled Cities: We're In Control. The reaction from authorities and
activists to the violence exploding from protests in Baltimore appears to be a start of a pattern.
Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake "thanked the Nation of Islam" Saturday, "who have been very present
in our efforts to keep calm and peace in our city." The Daily Caller's Chuck Ross asked the mayor's
office about her comments relating to giving "space" to those who wish to "destroy." The mayor's
office would only say her comments were taken out of context.
Farrakhan Cements Status as 'Pied Piper of Bigotry' with 9/11 Accusations. The
Anti-Defamation League said Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan cemented his status as the
"leading anti-Semite in America" this week with a speech blaming Jews for 9/11. Farrakhan was
speaking at his group's Saviours' Day conference on Sunday when he declared that "an Israeli film
crew dressed as Arabs were filming the Twin Towers before the first plane went in." In fact,
he said, the terrorist attacks were "not committed by Arabs or Muslims at all."
Tells Black Soldiers To Desert For The 'Day Of Judgment' For Whites. Nation of Islam
leader Louis Farrakhan made a fiery speech Sunday in which he warned whites that a "day of judgment"
is coming to avenge their "evil" and that African Americans serving in the armed forces should
immediately withdraw and fight for their communities instead. In an address given at the Nation
of Islam's headquarters in Chicago, Farrakhan claimed whites have oppressed blacks for hundreds of years
and a reckoning is due for the "iniquities of their fathers," the NOI publication Final Call reports.
On Ferguson: 'We'll Tear This G**d*** Country Up!'. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan went on a fiery
tirade about Ferguson on Saturday [11/29/2014] — threatening that if the demands of protesters aren't met, "we'll
tear this g**d*** country apart!" Farrakhan stated in his speech — given at Morgan State University, a
black college located in Baltimore, Md. — that violence was justified in response to the decision not to indict
officer Darren Wilson and peaceful protests are only in the interest of "white folks." "We going to die anyway.
Let's die for something," the radical figure told the crowd to roaring applause.
Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern. Obama's "best friend," Recip Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, who
wants to revive the universally-hated Ottoman Empire, says that Muslims discovered America. Oddly enough, the same claim
is made by Spain and Italy, who think it was Columbus in 1492 — but that is not Politically Correct these days, so
it's taboo to say. Still, the Chinese are another popular option in pseudo-history today. Louis Farrakhan thinks
it was the mother ship from outer space, which is destined to destroy the White Devils and bring the black peoples of
Chicago back to rule the world.
The Ten Worst U.S.
Purveyors of Antisemitism. Louis Farrakhan, born in New York City in 1933, started out in life as a talented musician. [...] But
[in] 1955, in Chicago, he embarked on a different path. Through a friend, Wolcott came into contact with the Nation of Islam, an antiwhite,
antisemitic, African-American organization founded in the 1930s. Wolcott joined, converted to Islam, renounced music, and — in
a profound sense — was no more, having morphed into Louis Farrakhan. And Farrakhan quickly rose through the Nation of Islam's
ranks, becoming its leading figure by the early 1980s.
A century of black American
Islam. The year 2013 marks the centenary of the reported founding of the Canaanite Temple in Newark, N.J. That was
the very earliest form of an indigenous black American Islam, one completely distinct from normative Islam, the 1,400-year-old religion from
Arabia founded by Muhammad. From this movement came Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X and Louis Farrakhan. The century divides
into two main eras: inventing a new religion (1913-1975) and moving toward normative Islam (1975-2013).
Farrakhan's 'Synagoge of Satan' Remarks Under Fire. During his
speech to the congregation at The Fellowship Chapel in Detroit, Minister Farrakhan spewed hateful anti-Semitic invective, referring to "Satanic Jews"
and the "Synagogue of Satan" supposedly controlling major institutions and added that President Obama "surrounded himself with Satan... members of the
Jewish community." As the longtime leader of the Nation of Islam, Minister Farrakhan has frequently espoused bigoted and anti-Semitic rhetoric.
Louis Farrakhan got a police escort for his 'unofficial motorcade'. Wouldn't it be great if you could get a police car to
accompany you for "traffic control" when you drive somewhere? It would be sort of like the president, except for the bulletproof
limo and Secret Service. Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam, despite lacking any public office, has enjoyed such convenience,
courtesy of his son Mustapha, whose arrangements to drive a police car for escorting his father's "unofficial motorcade" are currently
under investigation by a police agency in Illinois.
So where has
Farrakhan led his Nation? Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Chicago-based Nation of Islam, was seen last week dining
with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, in New York for the United Nations General Assembly. Between Ahmadinejad's
stealing of the election in 2009, his suppression of the Iranians who filled the streets to protest after, his quest to develop an
atomic weapon, and his threats against Israel, Ahmadinejad must have been hurting for dinner companions.
Louis Farrakhan speaks at
UC Berkeley. UC Berkeley on Saturday was once again the crucible of the free speech debate.
The birthplace of the Free Speech Movement in the 1960s hosted another iconoclast from the era, Nation of Islam
leader Louis Farrakhan, whose speeches and writings have been denounced by critics for decades as bigoted,
homophobic and anti-Semitic.
offended by Louis Farrakhan's UC Berkeley address. Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan delivered
a speech to hundreds at the University of California Berkeley Saturday and some students took issue with parts of
his message. Minister Louis Farrakhan opened the Afrikan Black Coalition Conference at UC Berkeley Saturday
[3/10/2012], bringing together black students from colleges across the state.
The White Man Made Obama Bomb Libya. The White Man made him do it. Nation of Islam Minister
Louis Farrakhan recently unmasked the reason for President Barack Obama's unpopular, non-congressionally
authorized, War Powers Resolution-violating decision to bomb Libya, a country that poses no imminent threat to
the United States. ... The White Man, says Farrakhan, forced Obama to bomb Libya for the oil.
Connection. Considering that Obama lived in Farrakhan's neighborhood, was a fledgling
community organizer and was a congregant at Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ, he must have at
least become acquainted with the man who named him the "Messiah."
Farrakhan says Moammar Gadhafi has always been a friend. Nation of Islam Minister Louis
Farrakhan says Moammar Gadhafi has always been a friend and he won't distance himself from the Libyan
dictator. Speaking Sunday at the annual Saviours' Day convention at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont,
Farrakhan didn't discuss specifics about the deadly uprisings in Libya. But the 77-year-old said
no leader has been loved by 100 percent of his people and said that if Gadhafi is persecuted for
crimes against humanity, the same should apply to former President George W. Bush for the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan.
Islam convention to include talk of UFOs. The Nation of Islam, long known for its promotion of
black nationalism and self-reliance, now is calling attention to another core belief that perhaps isn't so
well-known: the existence of UFOs. When thousands of followers gather in suburban Chicago this
weekend for the group's annual Saviours' Day convention, one of the main events will include a panel of
scientists discussing worldwide UFO sightings, which they claim are on the rise.
Race War A'Comin'?
I was stunned a few weeks ago when a black professional colleague told me there were all-black cruises that
featured speakers such as Louis Farrakhan. Mr. Farrakhan is a Muslim black nationalist, formerly a
security officer, now successor to Elijah Mohammed of the Nation of Islam. ... Prosperous American blacks pay
good money to go on a cruise with a racist like Louis Farrakhan? Mr. Farrakhan is more hateful than
other race agitators, hustlers, and shakedown artists like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton. He is in
concert with the Congressional Black Caucus, who slavishly support communist regimes like Cuba and
anti-American projects, who are angry at Whitey, but claim to be the conscience of the Congress.
To the followers of the Reverend, the Imam, and the Minister: ... [Louis] Farrakhan has long been associated
with anti-Semitic canards, and for most Americans, Farrakhan epitomizes racism of the basest type. Yet
in 2007, Barack Obama's former minister, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. of Chicago's Trinity United
Church of Christ, bestowed the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly
epitomized greatness" — thus, a man who consistently denigrates the Holocaust is seen fit by
Obama's mentor to receive an award. Do you agree with him or not?
Nation of Islam (Definition): A sect of Islam
originating in America composed of black Americans. Followers, sometimes called Black Muslims, believe
that Allah (God) appeared in 1930 to the last great prophet Elijah Muhammad, in the person of Wallace D.
Fard. Elijah Muhammad borrowed many beliefs from traditional Islam but introduced important
differences. Most notable was the focus on black oppression and equating Satan and evil with
the white race.
biography of Louis Farrakhan. The Muslim Cult of Islam (now called the
Nation of Islam) originated July 4, 1930. In 1933, Elijah Poole … changed his name
to Elijah Muhammad and moved the sect to Michigan and then to Chicago. Louis Eugene
Wolcott … changed his name to "Louis X" according to Black Muslim tradition, and
later to Louis Farrakhan.
In His Own Words: "A decree of death has been passed on America. The judgement
of God has been rendered and she must be destroyed…" [Harlem, NY, 8/9/1997]
Farrakhan Blames Religious Divisions for
World's Conflicts in Final Speech. Nation founder Wallace D. Fard attracted black Detroiters on
the margins of society with a message of self-improvement and separation from whites, who he said were
inherently evil because of their enslavement of blacks. The Nation of Islam, which promotes black
empowerment and nationalism, was rebuilt by Farrakhan in the late 1970s after W.D. Mohammed, the son of
longtime leader Elijah Mohammed, moved his followers toward mainstream Islam.
Some Key Nation of
Islam Dates: The Nation of Islam formed in the early 20th century as a separatist movement
to help blacks overcome racism and poverty. But it wasn't until 1978 that Imam W.D. Mohammed
proclaimed that whites are fully human.
Failed 'Farrakhan Test'. Whether Obama passed or failed the Farrakhan test might depend on where you stand on
Obama's candidacy. But the exchange regarding the controversial Nation of Islam leader probably did Hillary Clinton
some good, given Farrakhan's radioactivity in many parts of the country. Which raises the question: Where was
Hillary Clinton when her husband, former president Bill Clinton, made nice with Louis Farrakhan?
and smell the thuggery. The Nation of Islam thugs carried themselves like true believers given to
hard work, self-respect and a community awareness of bettering the lives of those in black Philadelphia.
But behind the clean-shaven masks, the dark suits and the bow ties, they were selling drugs, extorting money
from businesses and either brutally beating or killing people, including a family in Washington that was
victimized to the tune of two murdered adults and five drowned children.
Louis Farrakhan Is Not a Muslim. Farrakhan
subscribes to an American black religion founded in Detroit 50 years ago. His faith is not recognized
as Islamic by real Muslims, and his teachings bear almost no resemblance to those of Islam. Farrakhan is
as much a Muslim as the Shriner is an Arab. Farrakhan leads a group formally known as the "Nation of
Islam," commonly called the Black Muslims.
Louis Farrakhan Rips 'Wicked Jews'
in Hollywood. It's been nearly a month since Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakahan blamed
"Zionists and neo-cons" for "manipulating" President Bush into invading Iraq – before blasting
"wicked Jews" in Hollywood for promoting "lesbianism [and] homosexuality." Yet, outside of a few
newspapers in Chicago, the same press that showers positive coverage on Farrakhan's Million Man marches
has yet to get around to covering his Feb. 26 Saviours Day speech.
"Islamic Americans" vs. America: The
current leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, threatened some years ago to "lead an army
of black men and women to Washington, D.C., and we will sit down with the president, whoever he may
be, and will negotiate for a separate state or territory of our own." On a 1996 visit to
the virulently anti-American regime in Teheran, Farrakhan declared that "God will destroy America
at the hands of Muslims."
in Cuba calls for "regime change" in US. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan called
for "regime change" in the United States on Monday and denounced "wicked" U.S. policies for turning the
world against America. "We need a new government, we need regime change in America," he said at
the end of a visit to Communist Cuba.
believe levee was blown? Was the levee break that precipitated the flooding
of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina the result of some government conspiracy against
blacks? … Last week, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan sparked controversy by
spreading racist conspiracy theories. "I heard from a very reliable source who
saw a 25-foot deep crater under the levee breach," Farrakhan said. "It may have
been blown up to destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry."
The Editor says...
This may be the first time since 9/11/2001 that Louis Farrakhan has been quoted in the news media. He has kept an
extremely low profile since people of his "religion of peace" unloaded on America in September, 2001.
Muslim leader Farrakhan discloses illness. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, 73, has
suffered new health problems relating to earlier diagnosed prostate cancer and has canceled all engagements,
he said in a letter published on the Web site of his church.
The Editor says...
Mr. Farrakhan should spend his last remaining energy denouncing Muslim acts of terrorism, instead of using it to tell
everyone how sick he is.
First Congressman. At this particular time in history, it is a matter of note that Congress is
about to receive its first Muslim member. ... [Keith] Ellison's Muslim faith has generated no controversy in
the campaign. On the contrary, it has served to insulate aspects of his public record from close scrutiny
in a city whose dominant news organ, the Minneapolis Star Tribune, is a paragon of political correctness.
With the exception of columnist Katherine Kersten, the Star Tribune has scrupulously avoided examining Ellison's
long train of troubling associations, foremost among them his ties to the Nation of Islam.
Farrakhan ready for major speech. The
Nation of Islam returns to its roots in the city for its annual national convention and conferences next week, and dozens of
officials and clergy laid down the welcome mat Thursday [2/15/2007] for what may be Minister Louis Farrakhan's last
After a miraculous recovery... Farrakhan:
'I'm also a Christian'. A packed house welcomed Minister Louis Farrakhan to St. Sabina Catholic
Church on Friday night with a standing ovation and cheers for his health. The 74-year-old provocative
Nation of Islam leader, who has endured a series of health setbacks, didn't speak from the Quran but from the
Bible. "Even though I am a Muslim — I don't apologize for that — I'm also a
Christian," he told the crowd .
The Editor says...
Sorry, Louis, but you can't play on both sides of that fence. Islam is not just another
way to God or another path to Heaven — it is incompatible with Christianity. If Christianity
is true and valid then Islam cannot be.
Farrakhan Test: Maybe for [Rev. Jeremiah A.] Wright and some others, [Louis] Farrakhan
"epitomized greatness." For most Americans, though, Farrakhan epitomizes racism, particularly in the
form of anti-Semitism. Over the years, he has compiled an awesome record of offensive statements, even
denigrating the Holocaust by falsely attributing it to Jewish cooperation with Hitler — "They
helped him get the Third Reich on the road." His history is a rancid stew of lies.
Somewhat related... Farrakhan ordered to pay couple
$350,000. The son of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan will have to pay $350,000

Farrakhan Casts a Long Shadow on the Campaign Trail.
Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam and icon of black antisemitism in America, is emerging once
again as a prominent factor in the political arena, causing trouble not only for Democratic presidential
frontrunner Barack Obama but also for a number of other political candidates.
Stick With Obama. The issue arose Sunday [2/24/2008], when Farrakhan praised Obama
before a large Nation of Islam gathering, even comparing him to the religion's founder, Wallace D.
Fard Muhammad, who Farrakhan claims also had a white mother and black father. "A black man
with a white mother became a savior to us," Farrakhan said Sunday. "A black man with a white
mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall." The Obama campaign moved
quickly to distance itself from Farrakhan.
Truthiness About Farrakhan: The question was about Farrakhan as a package deal. Did
Obama accept his support? Did Obama reject his support? So far, no answer. And this was
incredible. Before a national audience, Obama, whose very candidacy has come to symbolize a promise of
"post-racial" "unity" in America, failed to reject the support of arguably the most racist and divisive
figure in America.
Wright's Teachers: It turns out that a number of Jeremiah Wright's incendiary and racist
comments are not new, and are traceable to leaders of the Black Muslim Movement. As it turns out,
Wright's radical ranting is an echo. A glance back at history reveals an eerie connection between black
separatists, the Nation of Islam (NOI) and Barack Obama's pastor. Although both NOI and Wright excel at
racist and anti-American rhetoric, it now appears that they read from the same hymnal.
Muslim killings gain new attention. [Scroll down] What happened that night continued a
chain of violence that began on June 17, 1973, police said. The Webb-Trantham shootings weren't
the first, nor were they the last, but they were, perhaps, the most pivotal. Trantham lived. Later,
she identified Brooks as one of her attackers. For the first time, there was a solid tie to the
Nation of Islam.
Obama win will stir
racial tension: Farrakhan. Louis Farrakhan, controversial leader of the Nation of Islam,
hailed US president-elect Barack Obama as an extraordinary leader but warned his victory would stir up
racial animosity. ... But he said the country remained "divided and polarised," and he warned that the
president-elect faced a daunting task in taking the reins of the nation during one of the most troubled
periods in its history.
The Editor says...
Huh? I thought there were predictions that if Obama lost there would be racial tension. People like Mr.
Farrakhan benefit from racial strife, and he sounds a little disappointed to see it gradually disappear.

effort to revitalize dilapidated South Philly neighborhoods stands at the center of the storm. While he
grandiosely links his projects to "the saving of America," others have accused him of constructing a "black
Jeremiah Wright Foreign
Policy: Farrakhan's anti-Semitic activities spanned years. Months before the [1995 march on
Washington], he was embroiled in an ugly, anti-Semitic episode. Khalid Abdul Muhammad, a senior Nation
of Islam official, delivered three hours of remarks at New Jersey's Keane College that attacked whites, Jews,
Catholics, homosexuals and white South Africans. Muhammad said, "[Jews] are a European strain of people
who crawled around on all fours in the caves and hills of Europe, eatin' Juniper roots and eatin' each
other. ... They're the blood suckers of the black nation and the black community."

I thought there was an unspoken agreement that if we elected a black president, we wouldn't have to hear from Louie Farrakhan ever again.

Covering Obama, press encounters Nation of Islam. President
Obama's home is in the same Chicago neighborhood as Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. On Saturday
night, the overlapping of Obama's and Farrakhan's worlds made for a strange, and sometimes testy, encounter
between the Secret Service, the press corps covering the president, and the paramilitary security force, the
Fruit of Islam, surrounding Farrakhan. The encounter was written up — for distribution
to the press, not necessarily for publication — by the New York Times' Jackie Calmes.

The Editor has a few questions...
If the black man is so terribly downtrodden, why are there "black millionaires and billionaires"? And
is Farrakhan among them? Can't black farmers borrow money from banks already? Why do the bankers

Wow, a three-hour speech. Pretty good for a guy who was allegedly on his death bed five years ago.
America's Ten Leading Purveyors of Hate.
Somehow, [Louis] Farrakhan seems to have undergone a radical media transformation into a non-insane person. Or at the very least, his
toxicity has been downplayed thanks to his obvious affiliation with Barack Obama's circle of friends, including Jeremiah Wright. But
Farrakhan remains as relevant and as dangerous as ever.
Farrakhan Endorses Hagel. Defense secretary
nominee Chuck Hagel has a new supporter: Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Speaking to thousands of

White Man Created Ebola To Kill Black People, Says Noted Scientist Louis Farrakhan.
With Ebola dominating the headlines, you might feel a looming dread. Can it happen to you and your
loved ones? How can you protect yourself? Is it too early to start freaking out about Ebola?
Well, you can relax, as long as your skin is white. That's according to the 100 percent sane and
rational Rev. Louis Farrakhan, who explains it all: [...]
Crawls Out From Under Rock To Declare Whites Invented Ebola To Kill Blacks. Louis
Farrakhan has crawled out from under a rock to spew another hatred-filled tome. His latest
revelation is a CIA weapon "that can be put in a room where there are Black and White people, and it
will kill only the Black and spare the White, because it is a genotype weapon that is designed for
your genes, for your race, for your kind." His latest rant is called "Justifiable Homicide, Black
Youth In Peril," and it's a whopper.
Farrakhan praises Donald Trump. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan praised Republican front-runner Donald Trump for refusing donations
from Jewish groups. Trump "is the only member who has stood in front of the Jewish community and said 'I don't want your money,'" Farrakhan said in
a sermon he delivered this week. "Any time a man can say to those who control the politics of America, 'I don't want your money,' that means you
can't control me. And they can't afford to give up control of the presidents of the United States."
