ISLAMIC ARMED FORTRESS EMERGES FROM POCONO MOUNTAINS

WORLD’S “MOST DANGEROUS ISLAMIST” ALIVE, WELL, AND LIVING IN PENNSYLVANIA FEDS TURN BLIND EYE TO MOUNTING HOMELAND SECURITY THREAT by Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.

The most dangerous Islamist in the world is neither Afghani nor Arab.

He comes from neither Sudan nor Somalia.

And he resides in neither the mountains of Pakistan nor the deserts of the Palestinian territories.

This individual has toppled the secular government of Turkey and established madrassahs throughout the world.

His schools indoctrinate children in the tenets of radical Islam and prepare adolescents for the Islamization of the world.

More than 90 of these madrassahs have been established as charter schools throughout the United States. They are funded by American taxpayers.

One of these charter schools – - Tarek ibn Zayed Academy (TiZA) in Minnesota – - is so radically Islamic and subversive in nature that the Minnesota Department of Education issued two citations against it and the American Civil Liberties Union is suing it.

Dozens of his universities, including the Faith University in Istanbul, train young men to become lawyers, accountants, and political leaders so that they can take an active part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the Islamization of the Western World.

He also allegedly operates compounds to train jihadis in the tactics of guerilla warfare.

This individual has amasssed a fortune – - over $30 billion – - for the creation of a universal caliphate.

His name is Fethullan Gulen and he resides not in the wilds of southern Turkey – - but the mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Christian terrorists are much more of a threat to America than those ordinary, militant, radicalised Islamists.

To obama and the agencies he controls, Condervative ,freedom loving patroitic Americans,legitmate gun owners, Christians, and though they refuse to accept the fact,Jews that are the enemy. These are the ones that must be destroyed.

Muslims, socialists, terrorists,communists are their friends.

This is the reason he is willing to get rid of America’s nuclear weapons. The only place he would use one is on American soil.

Turkey now on a neo-Ottoman track to bury the secular era of Ataturk. Gulen runs 32 Islamist schools in the US:

March 29, 2010
Islamist Gülen Movement Runs U.S. Charter Schools
By Stephen Schwartz
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.

Gülen has been criticized as the puppet master for the current Turkish government headed by the “soft Islamist” Justice and Development Party, known by its Turkish initials as the AKP, in its slow-motion showdown with the secularist Turkish military. But Gülen is also known in Muslim countries for his network of 500-700 Islamic schools around the world, according to differing sources favorable to his movement. A more critical view of Gülen’s emphasis on education asserts that his international network of thousands of primary and secondary schools, universities, and student residences is a key element in solidifying an Islamist political agenda in Turkey.

But in startling news for Americans, the Gülen movement operates more than 85 primary and secondary schools on our soil. A roster of the Gülen schools and of the numerous foundations that support them has been released to the public by the patriotic group Act! for America. The Gülen schools are often designated as “science academies” and are concentrated in Texas, Ohio, and California — with others scattered across the rest of the country.

Two states that host Gülen charter schools are Arizona and Utah. In the former, the Daisy Education Corporation (the Gülen movement loves friendly-sounding institutional names) operates three schools in Tucson: one serving kindergarten through the eighth grade, another designated as an elementary school, and a middle-high school, all under the rubric of the Sonoran Science Academy. In Phoenix, it runs a satellite kindergarten-to-10th-grade campus with the same name.

The appearance of Gülen charter schools in Tucson has produced critical attention in local media. The Tucson Weekly published a report at the end of 2009 noting that the Sonoran Science Academy in the southern Arizona town had been named “charter school of the year” by the Arizona Charter School Association. But writer Tim Vanderpool reported that according to one dismayed parent, who declined identification while pointing out the Gülen movement’s history of intimidating critics, “the Sonoran Academy seems constantly to be bringing Turkish educators into the United States, and subjecting students to substitute teachers while the teachers await work visas.” Vanderpool submits that “several Sonoran Academy parents believe the school has a hidden agenda to promote Gülen’s brand of Turkish nationalism, advance sympathy for that country’s political goals such as winning acceptance into the European Union, and discourage official acknowledgment of Turkey’s genocide against the Armenians during World War I.” Such issues are exotic, to say the least, for Tucson parents.

Earlier in 2009, the Beehive Science and Technology Academy, a high school in Salt Lake City, came under similar critical scrutiny from the Salt Lake Tribune. That major daily’s writer, Kirsten Stewart, reported that the Utah State Charter Board had begun an investigation of the Beehive school following complaints from a former teacher and an alarmed parent. The complainants asserted that while “Beehive advertises itself as a public charter school offering college-bound seventh through 12th graders a foundation in math and science ... the school has another mission: to advance and promote certain Islamic beliefs. They point to questionable financial transactions and hiring practices as proof of the school’s covert ties to Turkish Muslim preacher Fethullah Gülen.”

But while Fatih Karatas, principal of the Sonoran Science Academy middle school in Tucson, flatly denied any connection with the Gülen movement, Beehive principal Muhammet “Frank” Erdogan in Salt Lake City admitted such links in the case of his school. The Salt Lake Tribune quoted his admission that along with him, “many of Beehive’s teachers and founders also support Gülen’s ideals.” The paper also described how “Adam Kuntz, a first-year history teacher at Beehive, was fired [in spring 2009], he alleges, for taking academic freedom concerns to the state board. Earlier in the school year, Kuntz had a run-in with Erdogan over a lesson plan on World War II and the Holocaust. Erdogan wanted Kuntz to revise the plan and during a tape-recorded meeting, questioned conventional accounts of the genocide.”

Kelly Wayment, a parent of three children in the school, was removed from his post on the Beehive administrative board after he e-mailed other parents about Gülen movement influence in the school. Wayment told the Salt Lake Tribune that as in the Tucson case, teachers “tend to be from Turkey and central Asian republics living here on work visas.”

Americans should ask both why and how the Islamist Gülen movement has managed to establish such a large presence for Turkish religious political indoctrination in publicly financed education — and should unite to oppose it.

Russia looking for 21 members of “black widow” jihadist cell trained in Turkey

According to this story, one of the bombers in yesterday’s attack in Moscow may also have been mentally retarded. Such gallant mujahedin, pressing the most vulnerable members of society into the business of mass murder. And it would not be the first time we have seen this tactic employed. “Russia hunts 21-strong ‘Black Widow’ cell as first images of suicide bombers are released,” by Will Stewart for the Daily Mail, March 30:

The first images of the ‘Black Widow’ suicide bombers were released today as Vladimir Putin vowed to ‘scrape out the attackers from the bottom of the sewers’.

As Russia held a day of mourning for the 39 people killed in the underground terror attack, the country’s prime minister vowed vengeance on those who had helped mount the attack.

The police and security services now believe there are in a desperate race against time to find the gang with fears they could be plotting another outrage.

It was suggested today that some 21 more ‘widows’ are at large following reports that the women were part of a 30-strong band of suicide bombers trained at a Muslim school in Turkey. Nine have already perished in earlier attacks, Russian media said.

The dead women in Monday’s attack are both believed to be aged between 18 and 25 and to have carried the explosives - packed with nails and metal fragments to maximise death and destruction - in shahid belts or handbags.

According to police who have viewed CCTV which has not yet been released, one was said to be mentally retarded.

A source close to the investigators said that the women suicide bombers travelled to Moscow early on Monday by coach from a unnamed Caucasus town, prompting the belief that the attack was by militants from volatile Chechnya.

The women were accompanied by a tall man with Caucasus appearance, dressed in dark blue coat with white marks. He had five days growth of beard. Both women were identified by the driver of the coach.

‘One was dressed in black trousers, another in black skirt, black tights and spangled black shoes,’ said the Kommersant newspaper. Their appearance indicated they were from the Caucasus region.

The newspaper said the women had been taught by an Islamic militant who had himself being killed last month in an operation by the FSB, which replaced the KGB. ‘Around 30 of them were taught in Madrasah (Muslim school) in Turkey and then came back to perform their tasks,’ said Kommersant.

‘Nine of them have already blown themselves up, the others are being checked now.’...

Turkey: A Threat, Yet Again
Mar 15, 2010

By Srdja Trifkovic | Inside the Beltway, the fact that Turkey is no longer a U.S. “ally” in any meaningful sense is still strenuously denied. But as I note on Alternativeright we were reminded of the true score on March 9, when Saudi King Abdullah presented Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan with the Wahhabist kingdom’s most prestigious prize for his “services to Islam.” Erdogan earned the King Faisal Prize for having “rendered outstanding service to Islam by defending the causes of the Islamic nation.”

Services to the Ummah – Turkey under Erdogan’s neo-Islamist AKP has rendered a host of other services to “the Islamic nation.” In August 2008 Ankara welcomed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for a formal state visit, and last year it announced that it would not join any sanctions aimed at preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. In the same spirit the AKP government repeatedly played host to Sudan’s President Omer Hassan al-Bashir — a nasty piece of jihadist work if there ever was one — who stands accused of genocide against non-Muslims. Erdogan has barred Israel from annual military exercises on Turkey’s soil, but his government signed a military pact with Syria last October and has been conducting joint military exercises with the regime of Bashir al-Assad. Turkey’s strident apologia of Hamas is more vehement than anything coming out of Cairo or Amman. (Talking of terrorists, Erdogan has stated, repeatedly, “I do not want to see the word ‘Islam’ or ‘Islamist’ in connection with the word ‘terrorism’!”) imultaneous pressure to conform to Islam at home has gathered pace over the past seven years, and is now relentless. Turkish businessmen will tell you privately that sipping a glass of raki in public may hurt their chances of landing government contracts; but it helps if their wives and daughters wear the hijab.
Map of the Turkish-Islamic Union (www.theislamicunion.com)

Map of the Turkish-Islamic Union (www.theislamicunion.com)

Ankara’s continuing bid to join the European Union is running parallel with its openly neo-Ottoman policy of re-establishing an autonomous sphere of influence in the Balkans and in the former Soviet Central Asian republics. Turkey’s EU candidacy is still on the agenda, but the character of the issue has evolved since Erdogan’s AKP came to power in 2002.
When the government in Ankara started the process by signing an Association agreement with the EEC (as it was then) in 1963, its goal was to make Turkey more “European.” This had been the objective of subsequent attempts at Euro-integration by other neo-Kemalist governments prior to Erdogan’s election victory eight years ago, notably those of Turgut Ozal and Tansu Ciller in the 1990s. The secularists hoped to present Turkey’s “European vocation” as an attractive domestic alternative to the growing influence of political Islam, and at the same time to use the threat of Islamism as a means of obtaining political and economic concessions and specific timetables from Brussels. Erdogan and his personal friend and political ally Abdullah Gul, Turkey’s president, still want the membership, but their motives are vastly different. Far from seeking to make Turkey more European, they want to make Europe more Turkish — many German cities are well on the way — and more Islamic, thus reversing the setback of 1683 without firing a shot.

The neo-Ottoman strategy was clearly indicated by the appointment of Ahmet Davutoglu as foreign minister almost a year ago. As Erdogan’s long-term foreign policy advisor, he advocated diversifying Turkey’s geopolitical options by creating exclusively Turkish zones of influence in the Balkans, the Caucasus, Central Asia, and the Middle East… including links with Khaled al-Mashal of Hamas. On the day of his appointment in May Davutoglu asserted that Turkey’s influence in “its region” will continue to grow: Turkey had an “order-instituting role” in the Middle East, the Balkans and the Caucasus, he declared, quite apart from its links with the West. In his words, Turkish foreign policy has evolved from being “crisis-oriented” to being based on “vision”: “Turkey is no longer a country which only reacts to crises, but notices the crises before their emergence and intervenes in the crises effectively, and gives shape to the order of its surrounding region.” He openly asserted that Turkey had a “responsibility to help stability towards the countries and peoples of the regions which once had links with Turkey” — thus explicitly referring to the Ottoman era, in a manner unimaginable only a decade ago: “Beyond representing the 70 million people of Turkey, we have a historic debt to those lands where there are Turks or which was related to our land in the past. We have to repay this debt in the best way.”

This strategy is based on the assumption that growing Turkish clout in the old Ottoman lands — a region in which the EU has vital energy and political interests — may prompt President Sarkozy and Chancellor Merkel to drop their objections to Turkey’s EU membership. If on the other hand the EU insists on Turkey’s fulfillment of all 35 chapters of the acquis communautaire — which Turkey cannot and does not want to complete — then its huge autonomous sphere of influence in the old Ottoman domain can be developed into a major and potentially hostile counter-bloc to Brussels. Obama approved this strategy when he visited Ankara in April of last year, shortly after that notorious address to the Muslim world in Cairo.

Erdogan is no longer eager to minimize or deny his Islamic roots, but his old assurances to the contrary — long belied by his actions — are still being recycled in Washington, and treated as reality. This reflects the propensity of this ddministration, just like its predecessors, to cherish illusions about the nature and ambitions of our regional “allies,” such as Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

The implicit assumption in Washington — that Turkey would remain “secular” and “pro-Western,” come what may — should have been reassessed already after the Army intervened to remove the previous pro-Islamic government in 1997. Since then the Army has been neutered, confirming the top brass old warning that “democratization” would mean Islamization. Dozens of generals and other senior ranks — traditionally the guardians of Ataturk’s legacy — are being called one by one for questioning in a government-instigated political trial. To the dismay of its small Westernized secular elite, Turkey has reasserted its Asian and Muslim character with a vengeance.

Neo-Ottomanism – Washington’s stubborn denial of Turkey’s political, cultural and social reality goes hand in hand with an ongoing Western attempt to rehabilitate the Ottoman Empire, and to present it as almost a precursor of Europe’s contemporary multiethnic, multicultural tolerance, diversity, etc, etc. In reality, four salient features of the Ottoman state were institutionalized discrimination against non-Muslims, total personal insecurity of all its subjects, an unfriendly coexistence of its many races and creeds, and the absence of unifying state ideology. It was a sordid Hobbesian borderland with mosques. An “Ottoman culture,” defined by Constantinople and largely limited to its walls, did eventually emerge through the reluctant mixing of Turkish, Greek, Slavic, Jewish and other Levantine lifestyles and practices, each at its worst. The mix was impermanent, unattractive, and unable to forge identities or to command loyalties.

The Roman Empire could survive a string of cruel, inept or insane emperors because its bureaucratic and military machines were well developed and capable of functioning even when there was confusion at the core. The Ottoman state lacked such mechanisms. Devoid of administrative flair, the Turks used the services of educated Greeks and Jews and awarded them certain privileges. Their safety and long-term status were nevertheless not guaranteed, as witnessed by the hanging of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch on Easter Day 1822.

The Ottoman Empire gave up the ghost right after World War I, but long before that it had little interesting to say, or do, at least measured against the enormous cultural melting pot it had inherited and the splendid opportunities of sitting between the East and West. Not even a prime location at the crossroads of the world could prompt creativity. The degeneracy of the ruling class, blended with Islam’s inherent tendency to the closing of the mind, proved insurmountable. A century later the Turkish Republic is a populous, self-assertive nation-state of over 70 million. Ataturk hoped to impose a strictly secular concept of nationhood, but political Islam has reasserted itself. In any event the Kemalist dream of secularism had never penetrated beyond the military and a narrow stratum of the urban elite.

The near-impossible task facing Turkey’s Westernized intelligentsia before Erdogan had been to break away from the lure of irredentism abroad, and at home to reform Islam into a matter of personal choice separated from the State and distinct from the society. Now we know that it could not be done. The Kemalist edifice, uneasily perched atop the simmering Islamic volcano, is by now an empty shell.

A new “Turkish” policy is long overdue in Washington. Turkey is not an “indispensable ally,” as Paul Wolfowitz called her shortly before the war in Iraq, and as Obama repeated last April. It is no longer an ally at all. It may have been an ally in the darkest Cold War days, when it accommodated U.S. missiles aimed at Russia’s heartland. Today it is just another Islamic country, a regional power of considerable importance to be sure, with interests and aspirations that no longer coincide with those of the United States.

Both Turkey and the rest of the Middle East matter far less to American interests than we are led to believe, and it is high time to demythologize America’s special relationships throughout the region. Accepting that Mustafa Kemal’s legacy is undone is the long-overdue first step.

Turkey and Gulen no lightweight Islamic threat:

GLOBAL INSECURITY
Surprise! Guess who’s biggest Islamic threat
Terror expert’s warning cites this NATO member
Posted: March 12, 2010
12:45 am Eastern

By Michael Carl
© 2010 WorldNetDaily

Famed PLO terrorist-turned-Christian Walid Shoebat is warning that the United States needs to be watching not Iran, Syria or even Hamas and Hezbollah as closely as it needs to follow the actions of the Islamic leaders of Turkey.

It was just a few months ago when Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin reported Turkey appeared to be seeking the restoration of the old Ottoman Empire.

Turkey’s Tayyip Recep Erdogan

The report said Turkey’s increasing disinterest in the European Union combined with its efforts to re-establish its influence in Turkic countries of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan and its outreaches to Russian, Syria and Iran are cause for concern.

At the time, the shift by Tayyip Recep Erdogan, Turkey’s leader, from West to East was obvious, because Turkey announced it was cutting Israel out of annual military exercises involving NATO forces while it sought out military exercises with Syria.

Now Shoebat, the grandson of the Muslim Mukhtar of Beit Sahour-Bethlehem and a friend of Haj-Ameen Al-Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem and notorious friend of Adolf Hitler, is worried about what Turkey is saying and doing.

Get the inside story on the clash over freedom, get “God’s War on Terror.”

As a young man, Shoebat was part of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and participated in acts of terror and violence against Israel. After moving to the U.S., he worked for the Arab Student Organization at Loop College in Chicago and continued his anti-Israel activities. In 1993, Walid studied the Tanach (Jewish Bible) in a challenge to convert his wife to Islam, finishing up by changing sides.

(Story continues below)

“Turkey is the biggest threat,” he told WND in an interview. “Turkey is the strongest military power in the region, and it’s the second largest army in NATO. The statements coming out of Turkey should be of great concern to Americans.”

Listen to an interview with Walid Shoebat:

“Erdogan is saying 1.5 billion Muslims are waiting for the Turkish government to arise. This is pretty scary. Turkey rules only 70 million people so why are they talking about 1.5 billion Muslims?” continued Shoebat, who has written “For God or For Tyranny: When Nations Deny God’s Natural Law” as well as “God’s War on Terror.”

About 98 percent of Turkey’s estimated 74 million people are Muslim.

“Erdogan has made the statements, and he’s impacting a youth movement in Turkey that is calling for the glory days of the Turkish rule through the Caliphate. Let’s not forget the history,” he said.

Ex-PLO member Walid Shoebat on Fox News

“It was Turkey that lost the power of Islam when the Caliphate was dismantled and Shariah law was no longer the law of the land,” Shoebat said.

At the end of World War I, Mustafa Kemal, who became Kemal Ataturk, dissolved the Ottoman Empire and moved to form a secular Turkish state.

“The youth movement believes that Turkey is the hub from which Islam must rise again,” Shoebat said. “We need to look at Turkish activities to see the danger.

“It is the political agenda of these [Islamic] governments that we need to be aware of and not just the military apparatuses,” Shoebat said.

He said the creation of the worldwide Muslim Brotherhood – and all the terror it sponsors – was spawned by the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire.

“In 1924, the Caliphate was dismantled by the West, and this is why Muslims hate the West. Americans don’t understand why Muslims hate us so much. In 1928, four years later, the Muslim Brotherhood was born. This is the umbrella of all the Muslim terrorist organizations,” he said.

“The Muslim Brotherhood is the mother, and it was established four years after the dissolution of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. This really answers the whole question when people ask about the roots of Islamic terrorism,” he said.

“They ask if it’s because we invaded Iraq or because Israel occupies their territory. That’s not true, because in 1928, there was no occupation of Iraq, and there was no occupation of ‘Palestine.’ This Islamic movement has never ceased to attempt to establish a Shariah hegemony in that region,” he said.

So what’s going on at this point?

“So we see now the metastasizing of the Muslim Brotherhood into all parts of the Muslim world from Algeria to Syria to Lebanon to Egypt everywhere, even in the United States of America,” Shoebat said.

“All the Islamic organizations in the United States of America, no exception, are branches of the Muslim Brotherhood and they have made their declarations of their plans publicly. So, we have ample evidence to recognize that this is an old threat, this is an old war,” he said.

A recent crisis confronted Turkey when a number of top army commanders were arrested after being accused of plotting to bomb mosques and overthrow the “increasingly Islamic-oriented” government.

The army commanders reportedly feared a growing fundamental Islamic influence across the country.

Shoebat also warned it is dangerous for freedom-loving interests to announce a date for a coalition pullout of Iraq.

“If we create that vacuum, and in the Middle East vacuums are always filled up, this vacuum, I guarantee you, will be filled by Iran. They see the writing on the wall that America is going to pull out. ‘Just be patient and lay low. We move in and we take that country in the future,’” Shoebat said.

He said if that happens, Islamic interests will have the region “all the way to the border of Israel.”

“Iran is definitely working on a nuclear weapon and we definitely need to have a presence in the region to keep Iran at bay,” Shoebat said.

There have been reports of increasing Shariah-related violence within Turkey. Agence France-Presse reported just weeks ago how a 16-year-old girl was buried alive by relatives in a gruesome honor killing just because she reportedly befriended boys.

Police reported finding the body of Medine Memi in a hole outside her house in Kahta about six weeks after she disappeared. Authorities reported her father and grandfather were arrested.

Shoebat now lives in the U.S. with his family, but keeps his location secret for protection. He’s spoken at Harvard, Columbia, Concordia, UCLA, USC, the University of Georgia, Washington University, Penn State and other universities. Media outlets worldwide have reported on his life’s work.

The problem with Turkey :Resurgent Islamism, Mafia -style organized crime, import-brides,arranged marriages, inbreeding,polygamy,prostitution and honor-killings

March 28, 2010

By EMERSON VERMAAT

The current Turkish government led by prime minister Recep Tayyib Erdogan seeks to expand its influence through Turks living abroad. An important conference was recently held in Istanbul where 15,00 people from Turkish descent from several European countries listened to Erdogan and other speakers. All expenses were paid by the Turkish government. Erdogan repeated his controversial 2008 statement: ‘Assimilation is a crime against humanity.’ Another speaker went even further saying: ‘We need to innoculate European culture with Turkish culture.’

The language in the invitations already suggested the attitude of the Turkish government towards Turkish-German politicians. Ankara perceives them as being its own. Invitations sent in the name of Turkish Labor Minister Farak Celik to German Bundestag members were addressed as ‘my esteemed members of parliament’ and Erdogan was referred to as ‘our prime minister.’

Are we going to return to the times of the Islamic Ottoman Empire which sought to conquer the whole of Europe in the 16th and 17th century but was eventually stopped at the gates of Vienna? It was early November 2008 that Erdogan addressed a large crowd of enthousiastic followers in the German city of Cologne. His message to them could be summarized as follows: ‘You may live in Germany, but you are Turks – and I am your prime minister.’

What Erdogan and his friends basically want is to expand Turkish cultural and religious influence through the Turkish immigrant community abroad. ‘Turks living abroad should take the citizenship of their new home country – not, however, with the intention of becoming an integrated part of society, but so they can become politically active,’ Erdogan was quoted by ‘Spiegelonline.’

As Turkish and Moroccan immigrants possess dual citizenship their loyalty can be easily exploited by the Turkish or Moroccan state. Moroccan and Turkish immigrants in Germany, Austria, Holland, Belgium, France or Spain who play an important social or political role have been approached by state officials from their home country with a view to persuading them to take into consideration or even serve the interests of the Turkish or Moroccan state.

Denials by some of them that this not the case, are not very credible. Ahmed Aboutaleb, the Dutch-Moroccan mayor of Rotterdam, or Khadija Arib, a Dutch-Moroccan member of parliament, cannot simply ignore the interests of the Moroccan state. They did not protest when Morocco expelled 17 Dutch Christian aid works after allegations of ‘proselytism.’ The aid workers were running the orphanage ‘Village of Hope’ and claim they never forced anyone to become a Christian nor did they ever oppose Islam or the Koran. Being an orphan in Morocco is regarded as ‘shameful’ in Moroccan (honor) culture. Although Morocco is bound by international law to strictly adhere to the principles of religious freedom – which include the right to change one’s religion -, the authorities in Rabat no longer seem to care such lofty principles.

Clandestine activities by Turkey’s and Morocco’s intelligence services

The Dutch Security and Intelligence Service AIVD reported in 2008 about ‘clandestine activities of foreign powers.’ The following interesting observation was made about Morocco: ‘The Moroccan intelligence service has attempted to build a network of informants in the Netherlands, and to gain access to confidential databases. In pursuit of this aim, in 2008 it made use of Dutch police officers of Moroccan origin.’ As a result of the AIVD findings, a number of Moroccan diplomats had to leave the Netherlands in 2008.

A Dutch-Moroccan city council member in Rotterdam told the Amsterdam based newspaper ‘De Volkskrant’ that ‘Dutch-Moroccans with important positions in society are approached by the Moroccan intelligence service.’ ‘This is often done in a very subtle way,’ he says. ‘When they are in Morocco, everything is being done to make their stay there as pleasant as possible.’

The Turkish intelligence service displays similar activities. The AIVD reported in 2008: ‘The presence of large immigrant communities tends to attract unwelcome activities in two ways: on the one hand the intelligence services of their countries of origin (Morocco, Turkey, Iran, etc. V.) may try to monitor and influence them secretly, whilst on the other hand they may try to recruit migrants to assist in unacceptable activities.’

The Islamists from ‘Milli Görüs’ and their opposition to ‘world zionism’ and ‘Jewish influence’

The German ‘Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz’ (BfV), or domestic security service, closely monitors clandestine Turkish state activities on German territory. The fact that Turkey is a member of NATO does not mean that the Germans fully trust their NATO ally. They, the Germans, have noticed that the current Islamist government in Ankara increasingly seeks to expand its sphere of influence by appealing on Turkish immigrants to serve the interests of the Turkish state. No longer are the Turkish rulers interested in respecting the traditional secular nature of the Turkish state and they are now actively promoting the narrow interests of the influential Islamist movement ‘Milli Görüs’ (‘National View’).

Milli Görüs was founded in 1969 by the Turkish Islamist politician Necmettin Erbakan who was prime minister of Turkey from 1996 to 1997. Erbakan was also the leader of the ‘Refah Partisi’ or ‘Welfare Party.’ Milli Görüs has branches in Germany, Austria, France and the Netherlands. The German branch, the ‘Islamische Gemeinschaft Milli Görüs’ (IGMG), was founded in Cologne in 1985 and has been monitored closely the domestic security service BfV ever since.

Erbakan’s brother Mehmet Erbakan, between 1996 and 2002 first general-secretary and subsequently president of the German branch, did not hesitate to be interviewed by neo-Nazis. In 1997, he told the German neo-Nazi weekly ‘Junge Freiheit’ that ‘Turkish laicity is not compatible with religious freedom.’

Milli Görüs is close to the Muslim Brotherhood and they the share same kind of Islamist ideology. They embrace the concept of Islamic jihad or holy war and the introduction of sharia law, for example. Yet, they call on their followers to reach leading positions in society. ‘This is our fundamental mission.’ Moderate Islam is unacceptable to them as it opposes the idea that ‘the world order is dominated by their faith’ (i.e. Islam). Islamic world conquest remains essential. Yet, the quest for world domination does not rule out pursuing national Turkish objectives. Thus, in April 2006, delegates to a Milli Görüs conference in Ankara had to swear an oath that they would promote the interests of a so-called ‘Greater Turkey.’

The main enemies of Islam are ‘world zionism’ and ‘(American) imperialism,’ Milli Görüs claims. ‘The media are controlled by the zionists,’ Necmettin Erbakan said in the summer of 2006. An echo of Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels and Adolf Hitler who also claimed that the ‘Jews’ controlled the American and British press (‘die jüdische Presse’, or ‘the Jewish press,’ and ‘die internationale Weltjuden’ or ‘international world Jewry), venomenous anti-Semitic myths, of course.

Erbakan is an admirer of the fundamentalist regime in Tehran. He paid a visit to Iran in August 1996, when he was still prime minister of Turkey, as well as in April 2009, three and a half years after the Iranians organized a highly controversial conference attended by neo-Nazi and Iranian Holocaust deniers.

Indeed, it was in August 2006 that Milli Görüs openly joined the ranks of the anti-Semitic Holocaust deniers by referring to ‘the lie and legend according to which 6 million Jews have been killed.’

Erbakan’s Refah Party had, of course, very close ties to Milli Görüs. The party was banned for violating the principle of secularism in the constitution at the beginning of 1997. Prime minister Erbakan was deposed in a bloodless military coup in the summer of 1997. Four years later, though, a successor party called ‘Adalet ve Kalkinma Partisi’ (AKP) or ‘Justice and ‘Development Party’ was founded by Recep Tayyib Erdogan, a former mayor of Istanbul and Turkey’s current prime minister.

There is no doubt at all that there are equally close ties between Edorgan’s AKP party and the anti-Semitic Milli Görüs organization.

Nevertheless, Erdogan poses as a moderate Islamist whose party espouses European values. Turkey wants to join the European Union as soon as possible. However, there are serious doubts about Erdogan’s sincerity. On at least one occasion did he espouse anti-Semitic conspiracy theories when he claimed: ‘There is no difference between the United States and the Soviet Union. The driving force behind these powers are the Jews.’ Did not Hitler make similar statements?

And as mayor of Istanbul he said in 1998: ‘The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.’ He was subsequently sentenced to 10 months in jail. It was regarded as a clear violation of the principle of separation of Church (Mosque) and State.

Turkey, the Nazis and the Holocaust

The military and political elite in Turkey as well as the Turkish immigrant community in Nazi-Germany largely sympathized with the Nazis and their party, a recent German study called ‘Die Türkei, die Juden und der Holocaust, (‘Turkey, the Jews and the Holocaust’) revealed. With the then Nazi capital of Berlin being home to the largest Turkish community in Europe, many Turks there even gave the typical Nazi salute. Many Turkish students and businessmen in Germany equally espoused the Nazi cause. In 1938 – the year of the infamous ‘Night of the Broken Glass’ or ‘Kristallnacht’ – the Turkish Chamber of Commerce (Handelskammer) in Berlin issued a publication comparing Hitler to Atatürk: ‘Two great men, two heroes who played a comparable role in the history of two peoples.’

Turkey was an ally of Germany during the First World War and joined the Central Powers (Germany, Austria/Hungary) in November 1914. Britain and France then declared war on her. A lot of Turkish officers were trained by the Germans, thus creating a strong bond between the Turkish and German military elites.

Turkey was officially neutral during the Second World War, but the ruling elite remained largely pro-German. However, the Turks began to distance themselves more and more from Nazi-Germany by 1943/44, when it became clear to them that the Nazis were losing the war. The Turks tried to rescue as many Turkish Jews in France as possible. In Berlin, Adolf Eichmann, who was in charge of organizing the Holocaust, was furious, but there was little he could do. Nebil Ertok, the Turkish consul in Milan, Northern Italy, also saved a number of Jews.

Turkish criminal networks in Istanbul, Germany and Britain

Innoculate European culture with Turkish culture? What about religious headscarves, this oppressive symbol of the subordination of women to men in most Muslim societies, including Turkey? What about mafia-style organized crime which is almost an integral part of Turkish culture and society? What about often illiterate import-brides, arranged niece-nephew marriages, inbreeding, polygamy, prostitution and honor killings – to mention just a few other rather common aspects of Turkish society? This is not something that we in Europe really want at the moment, and certainly not more of the same.

Let me first focus on the huge problem of Turkish crime. Just like the Italian mafia there exists a powerful Turkish mafia specialized in drugs, prostitution, migrant trafficking and extortion. It was back in 1998 that Frank Bovenkerk en Yücel Yesilgöz, two leading Dutch criminologists, published their thorough study ‘De mafia van Turkije’ (‘The Turkish mafia’). Their book was reprinted recently and is not yet outdated.

A recent TV documentary showed that Istanbul – Erdogans’s city – serves as the headquarters of the Turkish heroin trade. Police are corrupt and only 10 percent of the drug crime cases are being solved. Most of the heroin comes from Afghanistan where local warlords and Islamist Taliban control the entire drug trade. With the help of Turkish immigrant families, Turkish criminal networks quickly extended their activities into Europe. In Britain, for example, Turkish criminal gangs and families control the drug market and are feared by everyone. British police even consider them to be ‘a significant security threat.’

In Germany, the annual criminal police report on crime shows that Turks and sub-Saharan Africans from Nigeria and Sierra Leone play a very important role in immigrant crime. In 2008, the total number of non-German suspects was 471,067, with 106,396 of them being of Turkish origin, 22.6 percent, that is. (The percentage has risen ever since 2001.) With regard to narco-trafficking (drugs), the Turks are again overrepresented in crime statistics: 22 to 26.6 percent. Suspects from Turkey, Sierra Leone and Nigeria are overrepresented in crime statistics on cocaine trade: Turks 21.9 percent, immigrants from Sierra Leone 3.6 percent and Nigerians 3 percent. As regards ‘sex-related crimes’ (rape, etc.), Turks were equally overrepresented, epecially in the case of rape and similar crimes: 34.9 percent (more than one-third!). People with an Iraqi background were also overrepresented: 3.7 percent.

In several German cities there are violent and highly dangerous Arab and Turkish youth gangs who rob old German ladies, rape German girls, beat women and are involved in drugs and prostitution. They managed to take over whole streets in some areas of Berlin. Most native Germans have now left these dangerous parts of the city.

Güner Yasemin Balci, a female Turkish aid worker, recently wrote a book about one of these youth gangs and their leader whom she calls ‘Arab boy’ or ‘Rashid.’ Rashid is a second-generation immigrant from Lebanon. His and other gangs beat and intimidate female school teachers, terrorize the streets, rob supermarkets and shops, regard German girls as their own property and ignore well intentioned but ineffective aid workers. These gang members evolve into seasoned criminals who run prostitution rings. Christians are intimidated as well. A Syrian-Orthodox boy was attacked by Rashid’s gang. Rashid called him ‘a Jewish swine’ (‘Judensau’), although he wasn’t Jewish at all.

It happened recently in Berlin: a gang of two Arabs and two Turkish robbers attacked Grand Hyatt casino personnel with guns and machetes and made off with over US $ 325,000 in cash. What was striking was not only their young age, but also their extremely violent behavior. The two Turks were Vedat S. (aged 21) and Mustafa Ucarkus (aged 20), the two Arabs were Jihad Chetwie (aged 19) and Ahmad Al-Awayti (aged 20). Chetwie fled to his native Lebanon but quicky returned to Germany as he preferred comfortable German prison cells, lenient German courts and German defense lawyers to harsh Lebanese prison conditions.

Criminals have rights, too, you know. All these spoiled youths do hate the West, but, for some reason, they do not wish to renounce their rights under the highly advantageous western court system. The four robbers have been apprehended now and all of them have a substantial criminal record, however young they may be. (German courts are often rather lenient with respect to convicting young frequent offenders who prefer a criminal career to integrating into society and finding a normal job, and these young bastards know this quite well.) Most of the stolen money is probably somewhere in Lebanon.

Dutch police report: Turkish mafia penetated Dutch politics and local government

The situation is equally alarming in the Netherlands where Dutch police reports claim that armed Turkish criminals usually resort to extreme violence. (Illegal possession of arms is quite common among Turks and Kurds in Europe.) A December 2002 police report even says that Turkish mafia members have successfully infiltrated local and provincial governments, local politics and prisons. Some Dutch-Turkish city council members appear to be in close touch with Turkish criminal networks that focus on the heroin and cocaine trade (‘Turkse criminele samenwerkingsverbanden’). Dutch-Turkish prison employees enabled convicted Turkish gangsters to continue their illegal activities unabated behind prison walls.

A Dutch-Turkish arms dealer and one of his clients are directly involved in local city government welfare assistance, the police reported. Turkish criminal networks are hardly ever assisted by corrupt native Dutch officials. They invariably turn to Dutch-Turkish government officials in Holland. Those officials who refuse to cooperate may face serious repercussions. Dutch-Turkish policemen may also face serious repercusssions after successful police raids in which substantial amounts of narcotic drugs have been confiscated. Family members in Turkey may be murdered if they don’t oblige.

In addition to narcotic drugs, Turkish criminal networks in Holland and Belgium focus on mafia-style liquidations, arms trafficking, migrant trafficking, prostitution, passport forgery and last but not least money laundering.

Since the early 1980s Dutch criminal police records show an unually high crime prevalence among Turkish and Moroccan immigrants. Some Dutch cities are terrorized by Moroccan youth gangs. Last year, the Dutch police reported that 30 percent of those who were arrested in the small and picturesque town of Gouda in 2007 were Moroccans. Turkish youth gangs are not as prevalent in the Netherlands and Belgium as they are in Germany.

More sophisticated Turkish criminals not only successfully infiltrated local government institutions but also the business community and especially the hotel and catering industry (the so-called ‘horeca’), travel agencies which focus on Turkey as well as market gardening firms in the ‘Westland’ area as a means employing illegal immigrants and laundering money. Vast amounts of Turkish mafia money is being transferred to Turkey every month. The Dutch police is simply unable to cope with the scale of this problem. There also budget cuts which adversely affect the police’s effectiveness.

Police officials often complain about the leniency of Dutch courts. There is a widespread feeling among Dutch citizens that some courts consider the ‘human rights’ of the perpetrators more important than those of the victims. Whether this feeling is justified or not, I don’t know. It is a fact, however, that some real and very dangerous criminals did receive lenient treatment from Dutch courts.

A notorious and extremely violent Turkish pimp named Saban Baran, aged 38, was in a Dutch jail. This illegal immigrant was the leader of a dangerous Dutch-Turkish and German-Turkish gang of traffickers in women. One of his victims became pregnant. He then told her: ‘I’ll shoot you if you don’t abort your baby.’ Saban Baran and his defense lawyer Gerard Spong did not agree with the court conviction and appealed. While in prison, Saban Baran forced one his poor victims, a Dutch prostitute, to marry him. The wedding photo showed a happily smiling couple. Baran then quicky made his wife pregnant, hoping that the appeal court would be lenient enough to allow him to see his baby. Defense lawyer Spong argued that ‘my client’ would, of course, return to prison afterwards. The naive Dutch appeals court in the town of Zwolle did fall for Mr. Baran’s charming smile and his lawyer’s assurances and ruled in September 2009 that Baran would be permitted to leave prison for a few days to see his newly born child. Contrary to all assurances and promising smiles, Baran never returned to prison. He fled to Turkey instead.

Some of his former Dutch victims were terrified when they learned that this brute and barbaric criminal, who, just like Nazi SS concentration camp guards, sadistically enjoyed torturing them, had escaped. He had previously told these defenseless victims that he would murder them as soon as he would be out of prison. Why? Just because these women had dared to testify against him court. But now he was free again and able to take revenge. Apparently, Baran’s death threats against his former victims were not taken seriously by the appeals court.

How could a court in a provincial town like Zwolle ever be aware of the fact that Turkish and Arab ‘honor’ not only requires a man to make death threats but also to act upon them? (You are not a man of honor if you don’t.) Naturally, there was row in Holland over the court’s lame decision. The appeal judges even issued a statement admitting they had made a mistake. But if was far too late by then. Baran fled to Turkey, knowing that the Turkish government would never extradite him to Holland.

It was at the end of October 2009 that the Dutch ‘National Rapporteur against Trafficking in Women, Corinne Dettmijer, complained that Dutch courts tend to be too lenient in respect of such serious crimes. There is not sufficient expertise among judges. Too many of these criminals are not even convicted at all.

Import-brides, arranged marriages, inbreeding, polygamy, prostitution and honor-killings

Polygamy is a practice the Turkish authorities are not keen to publicise, it is a common occurence in Turkish-Kurdish villages where the official government ban remains ineffective to this very day. Men with five wives do not feel any shame. One the contrary, they are proud of their ‘achievements.’ Turkey is a male dominated society. As Elif Shafak, one of Turkey’s most courageous women, told the French newspaper ‘Le Monde’ in September 2006: ‘Here, the men possess the women and the women possess the children.’

It is estimated that nearly a quarter of all marriages are polygamous in the villages of south-east Anatolia, BBC reporter Nick Read reported. Most marriages in Turkey are arranged marriages. Marriages between nephews and nieces are also rather common. Widespread inbreeding has an adverse effect on the health of children, producing genetic defects.

So-called ‘honor-killings’ are another major problem in Turkey. Female family members who are ‘disobedient’ are shot or stabbed to death by other male family members.

All these rather primitive social and cultural customs have been exported to Europe by Turkish immigrants. Rarely do traditionally minded Turkish male immigrants marry a westernized and well-integrated Turkish woman who speaks the local language and is hard to distinguish from native Dutch, German, Belgian or British women. Instead, they often prefer a young and usually barely literate woman from their village, family or clan. Love does not mean a thing to these people, family honor is often the only thing that really matters. These poor women are then imported into Europe and are generally known as ‘import brides’ who have no rights whatsoever. Domestic violence is not exceptional. It is a cruel form of slavery tolerated in western societies which have officially abolished these primitive customs long ago.

Several courageous Turkish and Moroccan import brides have now written their shocking memoirs. One of them is Necla Kelek whose book ‘Die fremde Braut’ (‘The bride from abroad’) claims to shatter illusions about ‘multiculturalism.’ This young Turkish woman writes that ‘the average import bride has just turned 18, she comes from a village in the countryside and barely knows how write and read. She is then forced by her (often poor) parents to marry a Turkish man in Germany whom she never met before. Once in Germany, she is forced to obey her husband and his family and not allowed to see any native Germans. If she dares to fall out of line she will be sent back to Turkey, thus bringing shame on her own family and her husband’s family, and that could even result in her being ‘put to death’ by one of her family members (‘honor killing’). She must give birth to as many children as possible. If there are no children, she will also soon become an outcast.

Aylin Korkmaz is another Turkish woman in Germany who wrote her memoirs. She, too, was, one of those many import brides. She divorced her Turkish-Kurdish husband Mehmet in 2003. Mehmet did not want to leave her alone and stalked her. He assured German officials in German that he would not do any harm to his ex-wife but what the officials did not understand was what he confided to her in Turkish: ‘I am not stupid. I’ll wait for the right moment and then I’ll cut off your head.’ Aylin tried to convince these German officials that her ex had just told her that he would murder her, but the officials did not take it seriously. Mehmet’s ‘right moment’ came in November 2007 when he broke into her home and attacked her with a knife, mutilating both her face and body. It is a miracle she survived. Aylin’s face will be mutilated for the rest of her life.

Seyran Ates is a German-Turkish lawyer who wrote a shocking book criticizing Muslim headscarfs, honor crimes, arranged marriages, polygamy (‘die Vielehe’), sexual abuse, sharia and ‘the error of multiculturalism’ (‘der Multikulti-Irrtum’). She quickly received death threats from aggressive males. Hate mails like this one: ‘People like you must by killed, take this warning seriously or we will not be responsible for what could happen to you.’

There are also important books in Holland such as Clementine van Eck’s doctoral dissertation on honor crime (‘namus’) among Turks in the Netherlands. Dr. Van Eck discusses a number of shocking cases between 1972 and 1993. Renates van der Zee’s, ‘Een meisje voor dag en nacht’ (on incest in Dutch-Moroccan families) and Jale Simsek’s book ‘Eerwraak’ (‘Honor crime’) are also books worth mentioning.

Judges in the town of Zwolle were also very lenient when they convicted a gang of Nigerian traffickers in women last year. The leaders of the gang will now be free after a few years. Other gang members weren’t even convicted. The gang had employed so called voodoo-rituals to force defenseless Nigerian girls into prostition in Holland, France and Italy. Most sub-Saharan Africans still believe in the magical and irrational powers of witchcraft – which is also common among African and Caribbean immigrants or asylum seekers in Europe and North America.

How long did it take Islam and their oil money to find a candidate for President of the United States ? As long as it took them to place a Senator from Illinois and Minnesota ? The same amount of time to create a large Muslim enclave in Detroit ? The time it took them to build over 2,000 mosques in America ? The same amount of time required to place radical wahabbist clerics in our military and prisons as ‘chaplains’?

Find a candidate who can get away with lying about their father being a ‘freedom fighter’ when he was actually part of the most corrupt and violent government in Kenya ‘s history. Find a candidate with close ties to The Nation of Islam and the violent Muslim overthrow in Africa , a candidate who is educated among white infidel Americans but hides his bitterness and anger behind a superficial toothy smile.

Find a candidate who changes his American name of Barry to the Muslim name of Barak Hussein Obama, and dares anyone to question his true ties under the banner of ‘racism’. Nurture this candidate in an atmosphere of anti-white American teaching and surround him with Islamic teachers. Provide him with a bitter, racist, anti-white, anti-American wife, and supply him with Muslim middle east connections and Islamic monies.

Allow him to be clever enough to get away with his anti-white rhetoric and proclaim he will give $834 billion taxpayer dollars to the Muslim controlled United Nations for use in Africa . Install your candidate in an atmosphere of deception because questioning him on any issue involving Africa or Islam would be seen as ‘bigoted racism’; two words too powerful to allow the citizenry to be informed of facts.

Allow your candidate to employ several black racist Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan followers as members of his Illinois Senatorial and campaign staffs.

Where is the bloodhound American ‘free press’ who doggedly overturned every stone in the Watergate case? Where are our nation’s reporters that have placed every Presidential candidate under the microscope of detailed scrutiny; the same press who pursue Bush’s ‘Skull and Bones’ club or ran other candidates off with persistent detective and research work? Why haven’t ‘newsmen’ pursued the 65 blatant lies told by this candidate during the Presidential primaries?

Where are the stories about this candidate’s cousin and the Muslim butchery in Africa ? Since when did our national press corps become weak, timid, and silent? Why haven’t they regaled us with the long list of socialists and communists who have surrounded this ‘out of nowhere’ Democrat candidate or that his church re-printed the Hamas Manifesto in their bulletin, and that his ‘close pastor friend and mentor’ met with Middle East terrorist Moammar Gaddafi, (Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya)?

Why isn’t the American press telling us this candidate is supported by every Muslim organization in the world? As an ultimate slap in the face, be blatant in the fact your candidate has ZERO interest in traditional American values and has the most liberal voting record in U.S. Senate history. Why has the American main stream media clammed-up on any negative reporting on Barak Hussein Obama?

Why will they print Hillary Rodham Clinton’s name but never write his middle name? Is it not his name? Why, suddenly, is ANY information about this candidate not coming from main stream media, but from the blogosphere by citizens seeking facts and the truth? Why isn’t our media connecting the dots with Islam? Why do they focus on ‘those bad American soldiers’ while Islam slaughters non Muslims daily in 44 countries around the globe? Why does our media refer to Darfur as ‘ethnic cleansing’ instead of what it really is; Muslims killing non Muslims! There is enough strange, anti-American activity surrounding Barak Hussein Obama to peek the curiosity of any reporter.

WHERE IS OUR INVESTIGATIVE MEDIA!?

A formal plan for targeting America was devised three years after the Iranian revolution in 1982. The plan was summarized in a 1991 memorandum by Mohamed Akram, an operative of the global Muslim Brotherhood. ‘The process of settlement’ of Muslims in America , Akram explained, ‘is a civilization jihad process.’ This means that members of the Brotherhood must understand that their work in ‘America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.’

There is terrorism we can see, smell and fear, but there is a new kind of terror invading The United States in the form of Sharia law and finance. Condoning it is civilization suicide. Middle East Muslims are coming to America in record numbers and building hate infidel mosques, buying our corporations, suing us for our traditions, but they and the whole subject of Islam is white noise leaving uninformed Americans about who and what is really peaceful.

Where is our investigative press?

Any criticism of Islam or their intentions, even though Islamic leaders state their intentions daily around the globe, brings-forth a volley of ‘racist’ from the left-wing Democrat crowd. Lies and deception behind a master plan - the ingredients for ‘The Manchurian Candidate’ or the placement of an anti-American President in our nation’s White House? Is it mere coincidence that an anti-capitalist run for President at the same time Islamic sharia finance and law is trying to make advancing strides into the United States ?

Is it mere coincidence this same candidate wants to dis-arm our nuclear capability at a time when terrorist Muslim nations are expanding their nuclear weapons capability?

Is it mere coincidence this candidate wants to reduce our military at a time of global jihad from Muslim nations? Change for America ?

What change? To become another ‘nation of Islam’?

It’s sad, really, and not something I’m hoping for, but the reality is the left won’t be turned in part until a huge explosion takes out a city block or a city entirely...kinda like on “24”...

But I think the originator is really jihadwatch, a respected source in my opinion. Just thougth I would share it with any who are interested.
