Brigitte Gabriel: Because They Hate - A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America
The Heritage Foundation ^ | September 27, 2006 | Brigette Gabriel

Posted on 01/03/2007 5:11:36 PM PST by tang-soo

Here is a YouTude link that is well worth your time. This speach was delivered on September 27, 2006.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8fa9yKQeTY&mode=related&search.

Brigitte (to those of you who have not heard of her) is a Lebanese Christian now living in the US who was a former news anchor on TV; an eloquent speaker who is telling her personal experiences with Muslims. This is found on youtube and most videos posted there don’t get to stay long so I’d suggest you thru off your TV and turn this on ASAP.

This is part one of a 7 series (they are all there) sequence and last almost an hour on high speed downloads. You don’t have to watch them all at once, most are about 9 minutes long, but please take the time to watch and listen and share. You don’t hear this in our liberal press.



An alternative source is this page at www.heritage.org that has both video and mp3 formats. This version also includes an introduction that details her bio and delivered by John Hilboldt Director, Lectures and Seminars for The Heritage Foundation. here.

This is a must see. The following is taken from the Heritage site ...

Brigitte Gabriel lost her childhood to militant Islam. In 1975 she was ten years old and living in Lebanon when militant Muslims from throughout the Middle East poured into her country and declared jihad against Lebanese Christians. Lebanon was the only Christian influenced country in the Middle East, and the Lebanese Civil War was the first front in what has become the worldwide jihad of fundamentalist Islam theology against non-Muslim peoples.

Based upon her personal experiences, Garbriel addresses the West’s lack of understanding and ignorance of the ways and thinking of the Middle East. She identifies mistakes the West has made in consistently underestimating the single-mindedness with which fundamentalist Islam has pursued its goals over the past thirty years. Through the telling of her own story, she outlines the history, social movements, and religious divisions that have led to today’s critical conflict.

A compelling and captivating personal story with a powerful lesson about threats to freedom in our time. – R. James Woolsey, Director of Central Intelligence, 1993-95

Brigitte Gabriel is a journalist and news producer who started her career as an anchor for World News, an evening Arabic news broadcast throughout the Middle East. She reported on the Israeli security zone in Lebanon and the Palestinian uprising in the West Bank as they unfolded. As a terrorism expert and the founder of the non-profit organization, American Congress for Truth, she speaks regularly on topics related to the Middle East on television and radio and lectures nationally and internationally.

Wow! I am going to listen to these segments anew tomorrow. So many new "windows" have been opened in my mind by her revelations...it's going to take a while for it all to soak in.

The liberal media has been hiding this from us, for whatever reason, for far too long. They don't seem to realize the fact that if the Muslims take over, they will be among the first to be "re-programmed".

I have recently heard of 2 situations in which people heard her and woke up on the issues which we on Free Republic have found cause for great concern.

It might be an interesting thread to ask Freepers: "WHAT WORKS?"

I got this book for Christmas and it is the most riveting and frightening thing I have ever read. All you have to do is look at the patterns and realize where we are all headed (globally) if we fail to win this war with Islam.

Yes, one thing she suggest, go to the title place, find out who owns your local Moasc, turn that name into the FBI so they can watch and investigate them.

Seen her on C-span, She also has a site,

http://www.americancongressfortruth.com/

Quote " "America...the dream that became my address."
Brigitte Gabriel

A message from the President and Founder
Brigitte Gabriel

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to visit American Congress for Truth.

War has been declared on Christians, Jews, non-Muslims and secularists worldwide by Islamic extremists...simply because we are infidels according to their belief.

As Islamic fundamentalism spreads its tentacles worldwide, it is crucial for the people of the Western world to understand the danger, know what to expect, and know what to do about it.

Threats and realities of forced conversions to Islam, beheadings, torture and murder are quickly becoming commonplace. They’re rarely mentioned in the news and when they are, it’s with a disclaimer…the word “insurgent” has replaced the truth of “terrorists.”

Political correctness is killing us.

This Is The New Reality
We are in for the fight of our lives.

That we have not yet had another terrorist attack in the United States is remarkable, but it will happen. Al Queda keeps its promises.

How do I know this? I was born in Lebanon and raised as a Christian. When the Lebanese Civil War broke out, our family, and our Maronite community came under vicious attack by Islamic extremists.

They promised to destroy us, and as you know from the recent war in Lebanon, the country is now nearly Islamic.

I was nearly killed by a mortar. Our home was destroyed. We lived in a bomb shelter for seven years. Most of my childhood friends were killed. That’s how I know.

We must make the connection between individual safety and a strong national defense, increase civic preparation and political responsibility, and train all Americans to become defenders of our community safety and national security.

"All that is required for evil to triumph is for a few good men to do nothing."
Edmund Burke

Anguish struck the citizens of the United States of America on 9/11 as a
handful of hateful men murdered nearly 3,000 innocent people. A heavy pall of grief covered our nation.

Many of us wondered if we'd ever laugh again.

But 9/11 wasn't the only act of terrorism. Bali, London, Madrid, Jerusalem...the list goes on and on. Yet the West does not fully realize the bloodthirsty intentions of the menace of fundamental Islam.

This enemy -- is relentless. It is determined.

Why Does Our Struggle Matter? It Matters Because...
If we don't win the war against Islamofascism other issues won't matter at all.

We won't have an economy to worry about.

We won't have equal rights for all.

We won't have our cherished freedom.

And we will live under Sharia Law.

Good luck with you head in the sand friends...there are a lot of them out there. Those people just don't think there is a problem. From listening to them, I think they believe that the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans will protect us. But they didn't even do that in the War of 1812.

Constantly taking issue with that kind of person is a hard, uphill battle but like somebody else posted here, if they hear it enough maybe they will think things through...I don't believe they are stupid for the most part, just in denial. I also believe their irrational hatred of W plays a part.

I read "Because They Hate" before Christmas. It was riveting. I will watch the videos. Gabriel is doing everybody a huge service by her actions.

Thanks for the post. I've seen her on many occassions and she's riveting each time. This is the first time I've seen her speech at the heritage foundation giving her an uninterupted platform. What got me was the question and answer session afterwards, typical liberal BS.

My answer:

1. AWARENESS.
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/keyword?k=threatmatrix

2. COMMON SENSE.
Use it.

3. TAKE ACTION.

Take your pick:

Join the military.
Join a law enforcement agency or one of the alphabet agencies.
Monitor the internet.
See something/someone suspicious? Report it.

4. Think outside of the box.

5. PRAYER.

She puts a human face on material we all know and have known for a long time. Of course it does lead me to wonder why there was such a fetish for making Arafat our kind of guy...but that is water over the dam.

I believe that the Moslems started the First Crusade. I believe that Moslems now want Armageddon. When at least half the population of the United States are supporters of Islamists, what chance do we have? Where do we start?

Remember when 60 Minutes gave a time slot to Christianne Amanpour? Well, they've got a chair available now, and Mrs. Gabriel would be absolutely perfect. First guest interview? Jimmah Carter!

I've taken another direction when I speak to people who defend Muslims...I tell them they're racist. When they Muslims, they are basically saying that a) They don't believe what Muslims say and b) they don't believe Muslims have the ability to do what they say. In other words, they believe them to be inferior.

I, on the other hand, respect Muslims enough to believe them when they tell me they want to kill me.

Thank you for this keyword which I have missed.

I'm trying to figure out how we go beyond the choir. We "get it" here but many of our friends and countrymen have a wall up which prevents them from seeing reality. 9-11 knocked it down for some and Brigitte Gabriel seems to help too. What else works besides another 9-11?

Our government's success in protecting us has also made it difficult for people to see reality.

Ooh-Ah said in part, "...but many of our friends and countrymen have a wall up which prevents them from seeing reality."

I understand and I have a response that is direct and truthful, but hurts just the same.

Ignorance is not bliss. Some people are willfully ignorant. They do not want to change. The reality is that these people are "stuck on stupid."

"Our government's success in protecting us has also made it difficult for people to see reality."

I agree.

If all news agencies were required to report the arrests and timely BOL's for suspected terrorists at the start of each news broadcast; maybe more people would understand just how widespread terrorism and terrorists are.

I've had the privilege of knowing lots of people from Islamic countries or countries that were on the fronts of the Islamic crusade (India especially). People in the US just don't realize what true Islam is about, why Lebanon had a civil war, or basically anything but Britney Spears and Tom Cruise. They don't want to know either. We criticize Europeans for being blind, but our masses are no different. Thank God Mexico is on our border and not Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Libya, et al. because our businesses and politicians would welcome them in for the cheap labor just as fast.

Islam is a form of slavery, and it will begin to die at some point because ultimately people reject oppression...ultimately. What horrors we will see before this comes about no one knows, and it may be many years yet. I think at some point watered-down Islam, like one sees in Turkey, Dubai, Indonesia, or Bangladesh will gain in popularity. Fundamentalist Islam feeds on hate, and after awhile, people just get tired of hating.

For many years, I have tried to awaken people to this menace to the West and all it holds dear:

-Islam, a Religion of Peace®? The Most Damning links...--

I've pointed out the historical context:

-Time to kick the tires & light the fires, folks- terrorism gathers across the World...--

...and how the Enemy is inside our neighbor's gates ( Oh, and ours, too ):

-Terror Strike Toronto ( Aborted! )--

...and related problems brewing:

-The Fire Down South...( Latin America--)--

...and at some point, you just reach the conclusion that people get the kind of life, and kind of governance, they want, and deserve. The message is clear, for those with eyes to see.
