Obama administration tracking Muslim candidates for military, Pentagon positions

Special to WorldTribune.com

WASHINGTON — The administration of President Barack Obama has been identifying Muslims in the military in an effort to encourage their presence.

Officials said the Defense Department has been keeping records and tracking Muslims. They said the administration sought to attract Muslims both to the military and to the Pentagon.

“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of
the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands
of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long
period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.

The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on
July 3. It was not clear how the Pentagon identified the Muslims. The department
has not given statistics on members of other religious faiths.

In 2009, a U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, shouting “God is great,”
opened fire and killed 13 of his colleagues. Later, authorities acknowledged
that Hasan, a psychiatrist, was linked to Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Critics have accused the administration of promoting Islam as the
preferential faith in the United States. Over the last year, a senior
adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, issued a
statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and
that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”

“I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary
said in a Twitter post on June 30.

On July 3, Work attended the annual Pentagon ceremony of Iftar, or the evening dinner after a day-long fast that continues throughout the Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pentagon has been conducting the ceremony since 1998 in commemoration of Islam.

“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come
together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our
beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an
important part of the Muslim community,” Work said.

The Pentagon, which hired Saudi-sponsored groups to raise awareness, has
reported the employment of 1,000 Muslims. Officials said they included
civilians and contractors for the Defense Department.

In his address, Work quoted Obama as saying that Ramadan reminded Americans of the principles of peace, justice and equality. The deputy
secretary also urged those at the Iftar to remember their responsibility to
the defense of the United States.

“Our country’s founders understood in a visceral way [that] the best way
to honor the place of faith in the lives of all Americans was to fight for
justice and equality as well as liberty and freedom,” Work said. “That is
exactly what the men and women both in and out of uniform who serve in the
Department of Defense do every single day. They are safeguarding the very
ideals deemed so precious by our founding fathers.”

“Mustafa Al Eih Zeri?” “Here.”

“Achmed El Kabul?” “Here.”

“Fatima Al Hayek?” “Here.”

“Ali Abdul Olmi?” “Here.”

“Mohammed Bin Kadir?” “Here.”

“Ali Son al Len?” Silence in the classroom.

“Ali Son al Len? Continued silence as everyone looked around the room.

She repeated, “Is this the name of any child here?”

A girl stood and said, “I think that’s me; It’s pronounced

29 Dead In China. Knife Wielding Terrorist Attack.

I hate to make political hay from such a tragedy, but if only these knives had been registered… Or why does anyone need a knife this big. Oh and this is probably the work of those friendly folk who bring you Islam. Just saying…

29 die in rail station attack China calls terrorism; Uighurs blamed.

BEIJING — A knife-wielding gang carried out an attack Saturday evening at a rail station in the south China city of Kunming, killing at least 29 and injuring more than 100, Chinese state media reported Sunday.

It was one of the deadliest attacks in China in years, and Chinese President Xi Jinping issued an unusual directive, distributed by the state news agency Xinhua, calling for authorities to “severely punish” what he called “violent terrorists.” Xinhua reported that four of the attackers had been killed, but it provided no information on when they died.

( I’m thinking China don’t play well with terrorists like we do.)

“Resolutely crack down on those who have been swollen with arrogance,” Xi’s directive said, according to Xinhua. “Understand the serious and complex nature of combating terrorism. Go all out to maintain social stability.”

Photos circulating on social media suggested that at least some of the victims were people lined up to purchase tickets. Other photos showed blood-stained bodies and people fleeing in terror.

Chinese state media, citing city officials, blamed the 9 p.m. attack on militants from Xinjiang, a region in West China that is thousands of miles from Kunming. “Evidence at the crime scene showed that the Kunming railway station terrorist attack was carried out by Xinjiang separatist forces,” Xinhua said, but it provided no details of the evidence.

Xinjiang is populated by Uighurs, Turkic Muslims who have long resented Beijing’s control of the area. In recent years, Uighur militants have carried out suicidal attacks on police stations in the region, often using knives and sometimes crude explosives. In October last year, a family of three Uighurs drove a sports utility vehicle onto a sidewalk in Tiananmen Square, killing two tourists and injuring 40, before setting the car on fire and killing themselves.

Kunming, in Yunnan Province, is 1,300 miles southwest of Beijing and about 2,333 driving miles southeast of Xinjiang’s capital, Urumqi. Because of the distances involved, and sketchy details provided by authorities and state media, some analysts Sunday urged caution in immediately concluding that Uighur militants were responsible.

Nevertheless, Saturday’s attack was likely to trigger a heavy handed response by Chinese authorities in Xinjiang, a region already under tight police control and restricted press access. Just last week, Beijing authorities arrested a leading Uighur scholar Ilham Tohti, charging him with promoting “separatism.” Tohti’s and his supporters dispute the charges, saying he is being silenced for his outspoken criticism of China’s human rights record in Xinjiang.

On Chinese social media on Sunday, most commentators expressed sympathy with the victims and urged government action against the terrorists.

“Some of these (victims) are poor people who do odd jobs and are possibly the breadwinners of their families,” wrote Anliuyi of Kunming. “They have children and parents, and just because they ran into this gang, they are dead and their families are broken.”

A man named Yang Haifei, who was wounded in the chest and back, told Xinhua he had been trying to buy a train ticket when the assailants carried out their attack. “I saw a person come straight at me with a long knife and I ran away with everyone,” he said. Others, he said, “simply fell on the ground.”

Islam and Cannibalism

by  on JANUARY 28, 2013 in GENERAL

By Walid and Theodore Shoebat

In the future, the Egyptian Islamists will not only be conducting systematic violence, but cannibalism against Christians and moderates.

In a recent video interview, one Egyptian scholar exposed the high school curriculum coming from Al-Azhar university, the most reputable of all Islamic schools, showing that it condoned cannibalizing non-Muslims:

We allowed the eating of the flesh of dead humans… under necessary conditions. It [dead human flesh] must not be cooked or grilled to avoid Haram (wrongdoing) …and he can kill a murtadd (apostate) and eat him

The interviewer commented:

The book that is being taught to general high-school students mentions that those who don’t pray can be grilled & then eaten

VIDEO:

Al-Azhar finds their support for cannibalism in Islamic authority. According toAl-Shafie, who is considered to be the founder of Islamic jurisprudence:

One may eat the flesh of a human body. It is not allowed to kill a Muslim nor a free non-Muslim under Muslim rule (because he is useful for the society), nor a prisoner because he belongs to other Muslims. But you may kill an enemy fighter or an adulterer and eat his body (716 in volume 1, Al-Kortoby)

And where did Obama give his 2009 speech in Egypt, which empowered the Muslim Brotherhood? Al-Azhar.

Was Benghazi a Botched Kidnapping Stunt?

I have been sitting on this for well over a week now, wrestling with whether or not I should post it here at FotM.

Given the bombshell revelations dropped by Fox News today concerning the recent terrorist attacks in Benghazi, I decided to go ahead and just throw it out there:

Via westernjournalism.com:

Benghazi Attack Was Botched Kidnapping To Trade Blind Sheik

October 17, 2012 By

America watched in disbelief as Barack Obama tried to tell the American people that the attack on the Libyan consulate on September 11 was the result of an amateurish, anti-Muslim video that had been on YouTube for three months with barely three hundred views.

Then suddenly the administration announced that it was, yes, a terrorist attack, but that it was the intelligence community that had fed him bad information, even though we knew our intelligence community had known it was an al-Qaeda-linked attack within twenty four hours.

Why the equivocation? Why the lies?

None of it made sense.

Until now.

Now Obama’s throwing long-time ally Egypt’s president Hosni Mubarak under the bus for the Muslim Brotherhood makes sense. All the White House contacts with Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR and ISNA. All the changes that CAIR and ISNA made to the training manuals that our intelligence community uses.

Kevin Dujan, a political analyst and radio and TV host wrote an article and appeared on radio on October 8 putting forth a theory that the attack of the Libyan consulate was tied neither to a video or terrorism, but a botched kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens.

That Barack Obama had arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood to kidnap the Ambassador, and through Obama’s supposed affinity with the Muslim world, Obama would save the day and get the ambassador released.

But the Muslim Brotherhood wanted something in return.

Their beloved Blind Sheik.

Unbelievable?

Western Journalism broke the news on Monday that a source connected to the White House has stated that the murder of Stevens and the other Americans was a botched kidnapping linked to one Barack Hussein Obama.

Yeah, I know this is out there and then some, and if we were talking about any other president, including even Jihad Jimmy, I would be throwing down the BS card so fast it would make your head spin.

But we are not talking about any other president.

We are talking about Barack Hussein Obama, who climbed into bed with the Muslim Brotherhood before the desk chair in the Oval Office was even warm, and has been bending over backward for his Muslim friends ever since.

I have a feeling in my gut that there is far more to what happened and why in Benghazi than meets the eye, and we have barely even scratched the surface as yet.

Army officer fired for teaching truth about Islam

Remember that jihadist US Army psychologist Nidal Hasan who perpetrated the worst shooting ever to take place on a U.S. military base?

On November 5, 2009, armed with a pistol and a revolver, Hasan entered his workplace — the Soldier Readiness Processing Center at Fort Hood, where personnel receive routine medical treatment immediately prior to and on return from deployment — shot and killed 13 innocent people and wounded another 29.

Despite internal Army reports indicating Hasan’s fellow officers had reported his outspoken sympathy with radical Islam since 2005, and despite eyewitnesses saying that Hasan had shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before opening fire, the U.S. Army and the POS’s administration refused to call the shooting an Islamic terrorist act or even a hate crime.

Now we have more evidence that the U.S. Army is infested with politically-correct “tolerance” fear of offending Islam. An 18-year veteran Army officer was fired from teaching a course on Islam because he had the temerity of actually teaching the truth.

Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley

Chad Groening reports for OneNewsNow.com, September 20, 2012, that Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley — a highly-decorated 1994 graduate of the US Military Academy who has been deployed to Bosnia, Kuwait, and Iraq for 6 combat tours — was relieved of a teaching assignment because he discussed negative aspects of Islam in an elective course entitled “Perspectives on Islam and Islamic Radicalism” at the Joint Services Staff College in Norfolk, Virginia.

Richard Thompson, President and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, says a letter sent out by 57 Islamist groups to several government agencies, including the Pentagon, had demanded that action be taken against Lt. Col. Dooley’s teaching. “All information that is offensive to Islam is to be removed,” Thompson summarizes the letter. “And any instructors [of the course] should be disciplined.”

Thompson concludes that the U.S. Army’s dismissal of Dooley was a direct result of the Pentagon bending to Muslims’ will: “the Department of Defense is following the instructions they got from these Muslim organizations.”

To please Muslims, the Army has chosen to scapegoat Lt. Col. Dooley. Thompson says Dooley’s career is being adversely affected: “He was slated to become a colonel and assume a command position. But because they did not like the way he taught the class and the way he portrayed Islam, they have stopped this whole procedure. They decided they were going to give him a negative evaluation and red-flagged his promotion.”

The Thomas More Law Center, a law firm that specializes in the defense of the civil rights and liberties of Christians, is considering a federal lawsuit aimed at vindicating Dooley’s rights to free speech and academic freedom.
