Thank goodness for that!

Here is a another neat 2 edge sword verse I just found a moment ago and was told to post on FR by My Lord Jesus Christ:

John 14:15 (KJV) If ye love me, keep my commandments.

For those of us under the pure freedom of grace this is gospel

For those under the bondage of works this is law

The age of grace ends with the rapture. The rapture may be today! :)

Nonsense. Judaism (not “Judism”), welcomes converts and converts become true Jews, included in the bloodline in the same matrilinear way as others. What Judaism does NOT do is proselytize. You have to make the move on your own.

So, Christianity and Islam are part of the same predatory beast, historically converting by the sword. Judaism does not behead, burn, or run an Inquisition.

Your response is an excellent starting place, but you are overlooking some salient points which complicate your answer. On the face of it, it looks deep, but once you scratch the outer skin, all sorts of troubling contradictions bubble to the surface.

What you have stated is what it LOOKS like now, but my question was more on HOW did it get this way... because it couldn’t have if people by and large had not lost pride in their own rich heritages and cultures.

First of all, it isn’t true that Judaism does not welcome converts. They do if they are free will conversions since Jews are forbidden to proselytize. (Had to get that one out of the way.)

islam, which should technically be called mohammedanism, is by no means superior, but it IS of one hive-like mind which has never changed throughout the centuries. It has never given anyone a reason to choose it. It has never given anything to the world except destruction and defilement of the body and soul. It imprisons the mind. There is no free thought or free will. It is indeed a mental aberration which is scientifically discernible.

muslim men are extremely sexually retarded and repressed. Bestiality is commonplace as is man on boy pedophilia. Indeed, they are taught by their imams the proper ways to have sex with animals. Homosexuality is so rampant in islam that there is literally no word for it. It is the norm. It is used by grown men to exert authority and dominance in clans and families. Young boys are used as sex slaves kidnapped from their parents and sold to pleasure wealthy muslim men. Sex with women is violent and demeaning. Rape is prevalent. Rape of western women is seen as punishment and sex with muslim women is seen as subjugation. Love seldom plays a role in any of these relationships because LOVE is commanded to be reserved ONLY for allah and no other.

Rape of Western women by muslim men is up a thousandfold in Europe. It is an epidemic and authorities are stymied on how to deal with it. It is so commonplace that it is almost being taken for granted...and this is one of the things that blow me right out of the water, THIS is their culture, demanded and rewarded by their ‘religon’. They consider it their right and they will fight any attempt from any quarter to change or punish this outrage.

Where ONE muslim locates, ten more follow. They multiply like cockroaches and overwhelm the system. Most exist on the government dole. Their main trades are drugs and human trafficking/slavery. They take over neighborhoods and then cities. They use the laws which already exist in civilized countries to insulate themselves and classify themselves as victims until they have sufficient numbers to become the dominant factor and therefore the victors.

They do not confine themselves to the big cities. They will migrate to any and every rural area to establish a foothold. Look around. There is almost nowhere you can go in THIS country without finding at least one muslim family, and within a year or two, entire tracts of rural land are under their control.

They pretend to be something they are not. Lying to fool Westerners and others is a way of life. They outwardly preach peace while conducting war. All out, full on, straight up war on Western civilization or any culture that does not follow their mad prophet. Murder and slaughter is as natural to them as breathing and yet we do not condemn them for it. Instead we rationalize excuses for it...none of which make any sense or have any basis in reality.

You can’t romanticize barbarianism. It is a horror, an affliction on the earth. And contrary to what you surmised, there is no identity within islam. You are part of the entire body with no mind of your own like the Borg. Should you try to become other than a part of that body, you will surely die, or at the very least be tortured beyond belief until you submit.

This is all perfectly visible. We SEE and KNOW the evil they do, but the conversions continue unabated as if the world had suddenly become not only insane, but deaf, dumb, and blind as well.

Christians and Jews have fractionalized THEMSELVES. They are not blameless for the state of their existence today. They have accepted heathenism within their own ranks, so acting as if they are victims is just nonsense.

I could go on, but truly the main point is WE believed we could ‘civilize’ the uncivilized, tolerate and accept the intolerable and unacceptable, and just the opposite has happened. THEY have succeeded in DECIVILIZING us. We have aquiesced to the murders of innocents. We have accepted and tolerated the bestial and abnormal. Our Churches and Synagogues have bestowed G-d’s blessings upon abomination...which is what islam has done. MAN has done this.

The price we will pay for this is yet to be meted out. I fear it. I fear it greatly.

AL-QAEDA is trying to recruit WOMEN to carry out suicide bombings in the UK, MPs warn today.
thesun.co.uk ^ | 06FEB12 | GRAEME WILSON, Deputy Political Editor

Posted on Tuesday, February 07, 2012 12:55:00 PM by bayouranger

It is using extremist websites to radicalise the angels of death, says their chilling report.

The Commons home affairs committee says it has heard evidence the terror group is “specifically launching and targeting women for violent acts”.

It is already a deadly tactic in the Middle East, where growing numbers of Palestinian women are volunteering for suicide missions against Israel. The MPs’ report comes days after four Islamic extremists admitted plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange.

Woolwich Crown Court heard how the gang — who also had London mayor Boris Johnson on a hit list — had been brainwashed by the twisted ideology of Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda leader until the US killed him in Yemen last year.

His attempts to recruit UK Muslims were exposed by The Sun. Last night the committee chairman, Labour’s Keith Vaz, said the gang’s admissions show “we cannot let our vigilance slip”.

British Muslims Try to Ban Negative Reporting of Islam
stonegateinstitute.org ^ | 06FEB12 | Soeren Kern

Posted on Tuesday, February 07, 2012 12:19:25 PM by bayouranger

A Muslim activist group with links to the Muslim Brotherhood has asked the British government to restrict the way the British media reports about Muslims and Islam.

The effort to silence criticism of Islam comes amid an ongoing public inquiry into British press standards following a phone-hacking scandal involving the News of the World and other British newspapers.

The Leveson Inquiry, established by British Prime Minister David Cameron in July 2011, is currently considering how to increase government oversight of the British media.

But in a move that many worry will result in government regulation of the Internet, Lord Justice Leveson, a British judge who serves as Chairman of the inquiry, now says he wants to include Internet bloggers into any system of press regulation that he proposes.

Observers say the Leveson Inquiry’s effort to regulate blogging, combined with the Muslim attempt to ban negative reporting about Islam, poses a clear threat to free speech in Britain.

Appearing before the Leveson Inquiry on January 24, Muslim activist Inayat Bunglawala said the amount of negative stories about Muslims in Britain is “demonizing” Islam and fuelling a “false narrative.” He called on the government to do all it can to “ensure a fairer portrayal, a more balanced portrayal of the faith of Islam” in the British media.

In a separate written submission, Bunglawala complained about the “enormous impact of coverage that is proven to be inaccurate, inflammatory, prejudicial and detrimental” to the representation of Islam in Britain.

He continued: “British Muslims as a social group collectively suffer from poor media practices, whether this be the excessive attention granted to fringe Muslim groups, like Muslims Against Crusades, by the media or poor fact-checking prior to publication. Improving media practices and media responsibility on portraying and reporting fairly on Islam and British Muslims, without bias or discrimination or intent to incite anti-Muslim prejudice, is an urgent concern.”

His solution: The British media needs a “more robust system of self-regulation…one which mandates the right…to challenge misrepresentations, inaccuracies and false reporting.”

Lord Justice Leveson expressed sympathy for Bunglawala’s plea and said that any government regulation of the British media would have to extend to the Internet and include blogs, so as to ensure a “level playing field” between print and online media.

Lord Hunt, the chairman of the Press Complaints Commission, a self-regulatory body which deals with complaints about the editorial content of newspapers and magazines, recently said he is looking into the idea of regulating bloggers and online publications. According to him, “at the moment, it [the Internet] is like the Wild West out there. We need to appoint a sheriff.”

Lord Hunt would invite bloggers on current affairs to voluntarily agree to regulation. They would receive a seal-of-approval rating that they would lose if complaints against them were repeatedly upheld.

This plan would please Muslim activists such as Bunglawala, who say they are offended by Islamophobia but have no problems purveying anti-Semitic rhetoric about Jews, Zionists, Jewish power and the “Tribe of Judah.”

Bunglawala, who says he represents mainstream moderate Muslim opinion, is a director of the Muslim Council of Britain, a self-appointed umbrella group that is closely linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. He strongly objects to the use of the phrase “Islamic terrorism” and has described Osama bin Laden as a “freedom fighter for hundreds of Muslims in Britain.”

Bunglawala said the blind Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman, who bombed the World Trade Center in 1993, was “courageous” and living out his “calling on Muslims to fulfill their duty to Allah and to fight against oppression and oppressors everywhere.”

In 2010, Bunglawala published an article in the Guardian newspaper entitled, “If We Care about Free Speech, Let these Muslim Speakers In,” in which he urged the British government to “demonstrate its commitment to liberal values” by allowing two Muslim “hate preachers” to enter the United Kingdom.

The late Christopher Hitchens described Bunglawala this way: “A preposterous and sinister individual named Inayat Bunglawala, assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain and a man with a public record of support for Osama bin Laden, was made a convener of Blair’s task force on extremism despite his stated belief that the BBC and the rest of the media are ‘Zionist controlled.’”

As for the BBC, it already self-regulates when it comes to reporting on Islam. Consider a recent 700-word article on the proliferation of honor-based violence in Britain, in which the BBC failed to mention the words “Muslim,” “Islamic” or “Islam” even once.

A poll of Muslims in Britain found little support for freedom of speech. Nearly 80% of Muslims in Britain said that the publishers of the Danish cartoons depicting the Muslim Mohammed should be prosecuted; 68% said that those who insult Islam should be prosecuted; and 62% of Muslims in Britain disagree that freedom of speech should be allowed if it insults and offends religious groups.

Meanwhile, the European Union has offered to host the next meeting of the so-called Istanbul Process, an aggressive effort by Muslim countries to make it an international crime to criticize Islam.

The Istanbul Process — its explicit aim is to enshrine in international law a global ban on all critical scrutiny of Islam and/or Islamic Sharia law — is being spearheaded by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a bloc of 57 Muslim countries.

Based in Saudi Arabia, the OIC has long pressed the European Union and the United States to impose limits on free speech and expression about Islam.

But the OIC has now redoubled its efforts and is engaged in a determined diplomatic offensive to persuade Western democracies to implement United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 16/18, which calls on all countries to combat “intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of … religion and belief.” (Analysis of the OIC’s war on free speech can be found here and here.)

Resolution 16/18, which was adopted at HRC headquarters in Geneva in March 2011, and was recently backed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the most recent Istanbul Process Conference in Washington in December, is widely viewed as a significant step forward in OIC efforts to advance the international legal concept of defaming Islam.


We have met the enemy and he is us.

FBI warns of threat from anti-government extremists
Reuters ^ | February 6, 2012 | Patrick Temple-West

Posted on Tuesday, February 07, 2012 10:52:42 AM by Twotone

Anti-government extremists opposed to taxes and regulations pose a growing threat to local law enforcement officers in the United States, the FBI warned on Monday.

These extremists, sometimes known as “sovereign citizens,” believe they can live outside any type of government authority, FBI agents said at a news conference.

The extremists may refuse to pay taxes, defy government environmental regulations and believe the United States went bankrupt by going off the gold standard.

What you have stated is what it LOOKS like now, but my question was more on HOW did it get this way... because it couldn't’t have if people by and large had not lost pride in their own rich heritages and cultures.


Actually, your question was:
“Why do you PERSONALLY think that so many seemingly normal people all over the world are converting to Islam?”

I agree with most of what you said beyond the your changing the assignment from why normal people are converting to Islam to “how did it get this way.” But regardless, I did explain how it got this way in addressing your question on why it is happening. Too bad people don't know about the truth of Islam. But they don't.

None of what you posted is known by most of the Western public about Islam. It is hidden behind political correctness or the tribal pride doctrines of multiculturalism as I stated. The doctrines of Islam scapegoat the US and Israel for all their conflict and that is the only side of what people hear if are ignorant of Islamic history by living through it or by reading sources outside the mainstream. Our own government won't say it is at war with Muslim terrorists because that is politically incorrect. They have even shifted the terrorist to thought and political enemies of globalist Liberals - the mind washers or cultural cleansers I addressed.

Islam appears to be what it is not to people who do not know beyond what they are told in schools and in the media. Islam preys on the ignorant and political correctness delivers ignorance. The Western elite created and enforce the doctrines of political correctness. Ask General Boykin.(sp?)

It is true that compared to Islam and Christianity, Judaism is not inviting or welcoming to converts. That is what the general public sees without knowing the hidden possibility of converting. Like it or not. I was addressing your question about why Western people would chose Islam.

Anyone who has studied history would know that the Western elite, when targeted on destroying a native population through psychological, social and economic warfare can easily throw future generations of those people into a tailspin of self hatred and self destruction. Study the history of American Indians. Study the history of European colonialism. It's dishonest to claim that Western Christians and their Nation has not been targeted by the elite. We see it and document it every day on FR.

True, Western Christians are not total victims; they fell for the whole game and turned on themselves and one another in the 60’s and beyond. But that melt down was planned and led in political, social, legal and economic by the elite flirting (many of them fallen Christians) with communism and those waging ethnic revenge against Whites/Christians for historical injustices (for example and in offense to political incorrectness, Jewish and Black intellectuals and activists have been committed to the cause of undoing Christians and their Nation.)

Dick Morris: Obama’s sneaky treaties
By Dick Morris - 02/07/12 06:53 PM ET

President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are entering negotiations over — or seeking ratification of — five treaties that could radically limit our national sovereignty and the reach of our democratic institutions. Particularly scary is that the treaties, once signed and ratified, have the same status as constitutional law and cannot be altered or eclipsed by Congress or state legislatures. And their provisions must be enforced by U.S. courts.

Those who wish to preserve our sovereignty and democratic control over our future must rally to block these treaties, either by pressing Obama and Clinton not to sign them or by blocking their ratification.

• International Criminal Court — Clinton has reversed George W. Bush’s policy and entered into negotiations over U.S. participation in the court. Specifically, the leftists who are sponsoring the court wish to create a new crime of “aggression,” which is essentially going to war without the approval of the United Nations. If we submit to the court’s jurisdiction, our presidents and Cabinet officials could be prosecuted criminally for going to war without U.N. approval. This would, of course, give Russia and China a veto over our military actions. Clinton says she will stop our military’s hands from being tied, but we all must realize that once we accept the International Criminal Court, we go down a slippery slope. The court could even prosecute Americans who have been cleared by our own judicial system.

• The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) has been signed, and the Obama administration — with the aid of RINO Sen. Richard Lugar (Ind.) — will push for its ratification as soon as Lugar’s primary in Indiana is over this year. LOST requires that the United States pay an international body half of its royalties from offshore drilling. The body would then distribute the funds as it sees fit to whichever nations it chooses. The United States would only have one vote out of 160 regarding where the money goes. LOST will also oblige us to hand over our offshore drilling technology to any nation that wants it … for free.

• Small-arms control — Clinton is about to negotiate on a global ban on export of small arms. It would only apply to private citizens but, of course, most small-arms deals come not from individuals or private firms but from governments, specifically those of the United States, Russia, China and Israel. The treaty would require each nation to adopt measures to stop exportation of small arms. It is easy to see how this could be a backdoor way to require national registration of all guns and to assert federal regulation over firearms. It would also require the registration of all ammunition to track its source once a gun is fired. The Second Amendment be damned!

• Outer Space Code of Conduct — Under the guise of stopping debris from accumulating in outer space, the European Union has enlisted Clinton in negotiations over a code of conduct. The code would prohibit activities that are likely to generate debris in outer space — space littering. The code might inhibit or prohibit the United States from deploying anti-missile missiles on platforms in space, denying us the key weapon we need to counter Iranian, Chinese and North Korean missile threats. European leftists reacted angrily when G.W. Bush opted out of the ABM treaty banning defensive weapons. Now they seek to reimpose it under the guise of a code of conduct.

• Rights of the Child — Even more fanciful is a treaty Clinton plans to negotiate setting forth a code of rights for children, to be administered by a 14-member court set up for the purpose. The draft treaty obliges rich nations to provide funds for shelter, food, clothing and education for children in poor nations. This provision could create grounds to litigate to challenge the level of foreign aid we give as inadequate to meet our treaty obligations. Already, leftists in the United Kingdom are using the treaty to attack welfare cuts by the Cameron government.

European liberalism is advancing — masked — by way of these treaties. Defenders of liberty must say no!

Muslim Brotherhood Calling Shots for NYPD
radicalislam.org ^ | 07FEB12 | Clare M. Lopez

Posted on Wednesday, February 08, 2012 11:40:42 AM by bayouranger

After forcing the FBI and CIA to purge their counterterrorism training programs of all references to “Islam” in “Islamic terrorism,” the Muslim Brotherhood in America has turned its sights on the New York Police Department (NYPD).

Writers from the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law have posted op-ed pieces in The New York Times criticizing NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly for appearing in The Third Jihad and authorizing its screening in NYPD training courses.

The critically acclaimed documentary is narrated by devout American Muslim and Navy veteran Dr. Zuhdi Jasser (president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy), and presents a factual look at the published mission of Muslim Brotherhood front groups and affiliates “in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”

For those who have actually watched The Third Jihad, it is clear that the film is not about all Muslims or even all American Muslims. It is about that minority of Muslims who are actively engaged in subversion to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law (Shariah). The Brennan Center is actually providing a living case study of exactly what The Third Jihad is all about.

Under Islamic law, speaking criticism of Islam or Islamic law is expressly forbidden. Such criticism – especially by non-Muslims – provides the justification for attack.

In their latest NYT hit piece, published Jan. 29, Brennan Center affiliates Faiza Patel and Elizabeth Goitein attack the NYPD and Commissioner Kelly. And in their mission to censor the tools used by New York’s finest to deal effectively with Islamic terrorism, they actually call for the appointment of a presumably Muslim-sensitive inspector general (IG) to oversee the NYPD.

What the Times fails to mention is that the Brennan Center in 2009 received the “Safe While Free Award” from the Council on American Islamic Relations. CAIR was named by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror-funding case. CAIR was founded by Hamas members and operates in the U.S. as a support group for the Muslim Brotherhood.

In other words, groups with ties to Hamas are now telling the NYPD how to manage its counterterrorism training. Worse, they shamefully call for the commissioner’s resignation and the appointment of an inspector to investigate how the NYPD has been so successful at keeping New York safe from terror attacks since 9/11.

The only thing more shameful is NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly capitulating. Kelly and his police force are champions in the war to keep America safe. Their showing of The Third Jihad should be praised as an important element of their success in uncovering and defeating numerous terrorist plots.

In The Third Jihad, Ray Kelly joins former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, former CIA Director R. James Woolsey and others to explain the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in conducting homegrown jihad and threatening our constitutional liberties and the American way of life. Aside from apologizing for defending New Yorkers, Kelly has nothing to be ashamed of and neither does the NYPD.

The Muslim Brotherhood has no business dictating counterterrorism policy to the NYPD – and the NYPD has no business taking its training directives from a group whose motto remains:

Allah is our objective

The Prophet is our guide

The Quran is our law

Jihad is our way

And dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration.

The Brennan Center offensive against the NYPD is a real-time demonstration of The Third Jihad’s key theme: How Muslim Brotherhood supporters work assiduously to undermine America’s counterterrorism defenses through infiltration, intimidation and subversion of this country’s most important law enforcement and national security organizations.

Radical U.S. Muslims Little Threat, Study Says
New York Times ^

Radical U.S. Muslims Little Threat, Study Says By SCOTT SHANE

WASHINGTON — A feared wave of homegrown terrorism by radicalized Muslim Americans has not materialized, with plots and arrests dropping sharply over the two years since an unusual peak in 2009, according to a new study by a North Carolina research group.

The study, to be released on Wednesday, found that 20 Muslim Americans were charged in violent plots or attacks in 2011, down from 26 in 2010 and a spike of 47 in 2009.

Charles Kurzman, the author of the report for the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security, called terrorism by Muslim Americans “a minuscule threat to public safety.” Of about 14,000 murders in the United States last year, not a single one resulted from Islamic extremism, said Mr. Kurzman, a professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina.

The report also found that no single ethnic group predominated among Muslims charged in terrorism cases last year — six were of Arab ancestry, five were white, three were African-American and two were Iranian, Mr. Kurzman said. That pattern of ethnic diversity has held for those arrested since Sept. 11, 2001, he said.

Forty percent of those charged in 2011 were converts to Islam, Mr. Kurzman found, slightly higher than the 35 percent of those charged since the 2001 attacks. His new report is based on the continuation of research he conducted for a book he published last year, “The Missing Martyrs: Why There Are So Few Muslim Terrorists.”

The decline in cases since 2009 has come as a relief to law enforcement and counterterrorism officials. In that year, the authorities were surprised by a series of terrorist plots or attacks, including the killing of 13 people at Fort Hood, Tex., by an Army psychiatrist...

Of Mosques and Men
Right Side News ^ | 2/8/2012 | Staff

Posted on Wednesday, February 08, 2012 11:42:11 AM by IbJensen

There are times when an unfortunate name can come back to haunt someone even when he or she had nothing to do with the original moniker. Think ofRick Perry’s ranch, or a Florida mosque named for a terrorist icon.

The Islamic Community of Tampa, also known as the al-Qassam mosque, hosts an ironic event Friday evening with the local Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) chapter. The open house aims to advance “understanding Islam.” Speakers will discuss Muslim beliefs and try to clear up “misconceptions about Islam, and Islam’s condemnation of terrorism,” a promotional release said.

That’s a difficult sell when the mosque exalts Izzedin al-Qassam, who remains an inspirational figure to Palestinian terrorists. Hamas named its terrorist operations branch for al-Qassam. Most rockets fired from Gaza toward Israeli homes and schools are called Qassam rockets.

“The [Palestinian] Islamic Jihad’s supporters have elevated him almost to a saintly status,” wrote Palestinian academic Ziad Abu Amr in his book Islamic Fundamentalism in the West Bank and Gaza. It was al-Qassam who merged religion and violence, advocating “God’s book in one hand, and the rifle in the other.”

Echoing Al-Qassam, both Hamas and Islamic Jihad have charters rejecting any peaceful resolution to the conflict with Israel. Islamic Jihad calls for “The creation of a state of terror, instability and panic in the souls of Zionists and especially the groups of settlers, and force them to leave their houses.” Hamas dismisses peace talks as a game beneath Palestinian dignity. “There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. The initiatives, proposals and International Conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility. The Palestinian people are too noble to have their future, their right and their destiny submitted to a vain game.”

It is fairly rare for a mosque to be named for an individual. A plaque outside the mosque hails al-Qassam as the one who “declared Jihad against the British and Zionist invasion of Palestine. He was martyred on November 19, 1935 in Yabrod, Palestine. Al-Qassam has become a symbol of heroism, resistance, occupation, and invasion of steadfast Palestine.”

The mosque’s name changed in 1989 when it was run by Sami Al-Arian, a University of South Florida computer scientist who secretly served on the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s shura council, or governing board. Al-Arian sheltered other board members, including Secretary General Ramadan Shallah. Shallah took over the Islamic Jihad in 1995, just six months after leaving Tampa.

A year earlier, when evidence shows Al-Arian was fighting to keep the Islamic Jihad alive in the face of a financial crisis, Al-Arian wrote to immigration officials on Al-Qassam Mosque letterhead seeking a work visa for Shallah to be the mosque’s imam.

In interviews for Investigative Project on Terrorism Executive Director Steven Emerson’s “Jihad in America” documentary and a subsequent newspaper investigation, Al-Arian denied the mosque’s name indicated any bond with the Jihad or other terrorists. Al-Qassam “became a symbol in Palestine of the first to resist and fight for freedom,” he said in 1995. “He was strengthened by religion and devotion to God.”

Federal agents arrested Al-Arian nine years ago and he has not been back to the mosque since. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide services to the Islamic Jihad and records make clear his prominent role in the organization. In all those years, however, mosque leaders have not thought to rid their house of worship of Al-Qassam’s name.

But they plan to welcome the public Friday evening to persuade the public they stand for the opposite of al-Qassam’s message of “God’s book in one hand, and the rifle in the other.”

It would be like hosting a forum on the South’s historic embrace of integration at the Church of the Martyr Bull Connor.

Both the mosque and CAIR seem oblivious.

“Ignorance leads to misunderstanding, which in turn leads to fear, hatred, discrimination, and even violence,” said CAIR-Tampa executive director Hassan Shibly in the release. “By reaching out and getting to know each other, we can love each other as a community and recognize that our differences need not divide us.”

But violence was at the heart of al-Qassam’s message. Jihad, he said, was the only path to freedom. According to a booklet issued by the Islamic Association for Palestine, an arm in a Hamas-support network, al-Qassam instructed followers that “Jihad is a religious obligation till the Judgement (sic) Day. We all need to do Jihad in the name of God to free our countries from the colonialist to become Islamic States that apply God’s laws.

“Arm yourself no matter what are the circumstances. Sell everything you have and buy weapons to fight the occupation.”

The mosque maintains a significant link to the Al-Arian era through its president, Noor Salhab. In the early 1990s, Salhab leased his home to Al-Arian as office space for a think-tank called the World and Islam Studies Enterprise, where Shallah was a director.

Years later, another tenant drew scrutiny from federal law enforcement. Ahmed Mohamed was arrested by police in South Carolina with a trunk load of explosive material and a laptop containing jihadi videos. Mohamed posted one such video to Youtube, showing would-be jihadists how to make remote-controlled bombs “to be used against those who fight for the United States” since he considered them and their allies fighting in Arab countries to be “invaders.”

Federal agents searched the house in 2007, looking for bomb-making ingredients including PVC pipes, chemicals, hacksaws and soldering irons. Mohamed is serving 15 years after pleading guilty to providing material support to terrorists.

Salhab is not responsible for his tenants’ behavior. And leasing a house to two separate people implicated in terror-support cases could happen to anyone, right? But if the mosque and its partners in CAIR truly are interested in correcting misconceptions about their faith, they might start by removing the name as a show of sincerity.

Three Killed in renewed attacks on Black Libyans
blackstarnews.com ^ | 02FEB12 | Lizzie Phelan

Posted on Wednesday, February 08, 2012 12:07:20 PM by bayouranger

Libya’s Bantustans. Driven from their homes by the genocidal Misurata NATO-backed rebels, Black Libayns from Tawargha now languish in camps as the world watches.

he Misrata Brigade have begun shooting at and attacking civilians in a refugee camp in Janzour containing approximately 1,500 refugees from the now obliterated town of Tawergha, close to Misrata.

The area surrounding the camp has been closed off by the brigade preventing any help from reaching the refugees.

Doctors in Central Tripoli Hospital have confirmed that they have already received the bodies of one man and one woman from the camp. (AFP reported three deaths today).

Residents in Tripoli, including the Tawerghan community outside of the camp who are unable to help their fellow countrymen, are pleading with the international community to spread awareness about the attack and to stop the attack which is continuing at this moment.

The racist crimes committed by the Misrata Brigade against the town of Tawergha, which is mainly populated by Black Libyans, has been well documented by international human rights organisations and and the global mainstream media. They are infamous for scrawling on the walls on the road to Tawergha, that they, the Misrata brigade are “the brigade for the purging of the skins of slaves, Black skins.”
**********************************************************************************
I guess they aren’t holder’s people unless they are attacking white American voters.
And they aren’t obama’s people because his family was selling black slaves in Africa.
So WHY do so many American black people consider themselves muslims?

Islam teaches to fight any who would criticize Islam or their Prophet.....that's set in stone and will not change. Thus they will continue their relentless "stealth Jihad" in our country and courts, and thru our military, police and any other organization including our schools and churches. It will not cease as it's their "ammunition" for the Islamification of the United Sates of America....

.....and STILL we have not identified the enemy within!!!!!

"Col. West".....that would be he.

If we don't win this election the Islamification of our country will continue at twice the speed it's doing now..

I see Spain is now raising a hand against the Muslim push in their country....you;d think they would have remembered their history with Islam!... The trouble is nation leaders don't acknowledge the threat until the muslim numbers are so great they have a serious and threatening attach when they attempt to fight them....onto the streeets....bombs etc. ...and their first plan of action is generally using the muslim "youth"....like they have in France when they torched all those cars.

The press refused to call them 'muslim' youth.....and it will be that way here once it begins. The media will not call it what it will be.

Thanks for the ping, MestaMachine. A little pressed for time (will read the whole ping later) but just HAD TO respond to this: “Under Islamic law, speaking criticism of Islam or Islamic law is expressly forbidden. Such criticism – especially by non-Muslims – provides the justification for attack.”

How much longer will we have to put up with political correctness and tip-toe around these people? When is enough, enough????? They can all go to (you know where).

Greta Van Susteren’s “Back to Chicago” Moment…

http://theulstermanreport.com/2012/02/08/greta-van-susterens-back-to-chicago-moment-insider-related/

Comment with the article:

“Let’s consider adding up a few loose and apparently unconnected strands that may be well connected…. Or not…but — Let’s connect them:

*the questionable donations — the Feds wanted facts on certain campaign donations to Obama via Federal Election Commission Laws that have yet to be answered for…remember Obama claimed to have had voluminous $25.00 donations yet that turned out not to be true …but totally and completely false.

* the Chicago Rojas drug family as campaign donations Bundler and in particular bundler/donor to Obama campaign ….has Feds drop guilty plea AND receives safe haven in Mexio under Calderone while other Rohas family members remain in Chicago gearing up to bundle donations and More…

* Where is Patrick Fitzgerald in all this.
..Look who appointed Fitzgerald…who else did this serve…who else was in this loop??

*Calderone complains of guns crossing into Mexico right on cue (remember Kabuki)…he plays his part to help Obama destroy the 2nd amendment, a small favor in exchange for a laundry facility with wide open borders for “direct commerce” of drug sales into the USA

* Fast and Furious may be so much more than a gun operation to remove 2nd amendment constitutional rights from the people…it may be that the Obama administration is laundering (for a %) the drug cartels money..Shore Bank, First California, Shore Bank International are Obama/Holder money laundering outlets –with the Rohas drug family in Chicago–close to Shore Bank

*Consider — were our Feds so corrupted by the cash at the border and by cartels and our own Holder Justice Department, that they willingly sent guns without GPS as part of the huge cartels payoffs made it as worthwhile—- as the cops or any other officials can be bought off… is that why Fast and Furious was first known as Operation Direct Commerce (that name since scrubbed from the net). Also remember that whistler blower Agent Dodson and his complete and utter confusion as to what was happening and though told to stand down–stayed for days as a lone lookout before being threatened by his superior–only after Border Agent Terry’s death did he go to Congressional authorities– however until GOP and Daryle Issa took the house in 2010 could there be any investigation as the Dems had put a freeze on it… See Frank Miniter’s article in Forbes 12/7/2011 “Inside President Obama’s War on the Fast and Furious Whistleblowers.”

* First California Bank is another money laundering facility so corrupt they simply send a warning shot over Feinstein’s head as they steal 5 Million dollars from her ( and it may be so much more) bank accounts.

*Note today’s paradigm change — with Axelrod and Obama now embracing the “evil PAC’s” that last year had Obama apoplectic at the State of the Union as he bizarrely lost his composure with the Supreme Court …deriding the justices for giving rights to corporations …now able to give donations to the party of their choice ….thus destroying Obama’s leverage on campaign cash flow…. .and with Wall Street now turning their backs on Obama and refusing to bundle for him– how does he hide where all that cash is flowing from — as he no longer has the Wall Street big money screen to hide behind… Where does he now claim all that money cames from?
Wonder who actually wrote those recent $38,500. per plate checks in New York last week? We’re those tickets prepaid and simply handed out?

***Makes one wonder if the Wall Street bail-outs had as much to do with certain forces knowing their “donations” were actually being supplied for them….Funny thing…Black Mail works in both directions ….hence, big bail outs and big bonus’ regardless of the pious speeches from big mouth

* Jack Wheeler IV was not just a WMD or Chem warfare specialist…he was also a banking/Sec specialist for the US government …for many years.

Where are all those savvy investigative reporters…someone who could put the financial/ criminal picture together… …Unfortunately there are few like Mark Pittman…
Bob Ivy? Greta has put out a fishing line…

* it’s not just the money, it’s not just the drugs, it’s not just the cooperation of Calderone, it’s not just the evil partnership with the drug cartels, it’s not just the US banks laundering the monies…It is the capture of our flag by seditious forces within our own government.”

-

Exactly what Holder/DOJ did with the Black Panther case (scaring voters on 2008 election day). They had it in the bag, then dropped it.

Mexico arrests 'Fast and Furious' suspect

Snips: Mexican authorities have arrested a reputed enforcer for the country's most powerful drug cartel -- a man also alleged to have amassed weapons from the U.S. government's failed Fast and Furious gun-smuggling operation.

A raid by Mexican police last year turned up high-powered guns bought illegally through the "Fast and Furious" program run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Journalists ordered to pay Ecuador president US$2 million

Snip: The president's lawyer, Gutemberg Vera, said however the lawsuit was based on a work "intended to damage the reputation" of Correa and added that "given the bad faith... it is impossible to reach a reconciliation."



But Correa reaffirmed that if the journalists were to admit they "lied," he would drop the proceedings. "They are being tried for being liars, not for being journalists," he said.

The sayings and sermons of Abu Qatada al-Filistini(UK)
theweek.co.uk ^ | 07FEB12 | Not Listed

Posted on Wednesday, February 08, 2012 4:41:50 PM by bayouranger

Abu Qatada is known as a dangerously radical preacher. So what has he actually been saying?

ABU QATADA has been called the “most significant extremist preacher in the UK”, “al-Qaeda’s spiritual leader in Europe” and “a truly dangerous individual”. News of his upcoming release from jail this week - albeit on stringent bail conditions – has caused outrage, with even his defence team suggesting he poses a “grave risk” to national security.

Why is Abu Qatada being freed and can he ever be deported?

So what does this radical Muslim cleric actually preach? Here are some of the things he has said since 1993 when he came to Britain from Jordan on a forged passport, requesting asylum on the grounds of religious persecution:

1. A 1995 ‘fatwa’ issued by Abu Qatada justified the killing of anyone in Algeria who converted from Islam, including their wives and children.

2. In 1997, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, Abu Qatada called on Muslims to kill the wives and children of Egyptian police and army officers.

3. In October 1999, according to the British case against him, Abu Qatada made a speech in which, The Guardian reported, “he effectively issued a fatwa authorising the killing of Jews, including Jewish children”.

4. In 1999 Abu Qatada told his congregation at Finsbury Park Mosque that Americans should be attacked, wherever they were; that in his view they were no better than Jews; and that there was no difference between English people, Jews and Americans.

5. In a 2001 sermon, shortly after 9/11, Abu Qatada said the al-Qaeda attacks on the US were part of a wider battle between Christendom and Islam, and were a response to America’s unjust policies.

6. In autumn 2002, a poem attributed to Abu Qatada, appeared online praising Osama bin Laden and glorifying the attacks.

7. In another sermon he is said to have stated that it was not a sin for a Muslim to kill a non-believer for the sake of Islam.

Abu Qatada is wanted on terrorism charges in the United States, Belgium, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Algeria and his native Jordan. His comments are often quoted on radical Islamic websites. ·

Abu Qatada’s Comfortable British Jihad

Publication: Terrorism Monitor Volume: 6 Issue: 14July 10, 2008 04:23 PM
Category: Terrorism Monitor, Europe
By: Raffaello Pantucci

Abu Qatada al-Filistini

On June 17, amidst much furor, a British Special Immigration Appeals Committee (SIAC) allowed the release on bail of Abu Qatada al-Filistini, a radical preacher described by Spanish counter-terror judge Baltasar Garzon as “al-Qaeda’s spiritual ambassador to Europe.” Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said she was “extremely disappointed” by the ruling, adding that she would appeal it. In the meantime, Abu Qatada was released from Long Lartin prison to join his family at a £800,000 home in West London, where he is under virtual house arrest. Only allowed out for two hours a day, Qatada wears an electronic tag, is not allowed to use the internet, computers or mobile telephones. He is also forbidden to visit mosques, lead prayers or give religious instruction. Police have powers to search his home at their discretion, and he has a rather comical list of individuals who he is banned from meeting with, including Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and imprisoned preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri. Aside from his solicitors and family, all other visitors must be approved by the Home Secretary (BBC, June 18; Times, June 19).

This entire process would appear to be a vindication of Qatada’s own boast to his followers after his first arrest in 2002 when he claimed Britain’s “ponderous extradition laws meant that it was far from certain he would ever be expelled” [1]. To the horror of observers, the entire process was repeated on July 3, 2008, when the same court released an Algerian man the British press can only identify as “U,” though it has been revealed in the foreign press that the suspect is likely to be Abu Doha (New York Times, July 4). While he is to have equally rigid bail conditions, the release of this individual—who is suspected of being involved in the LAX bombing attempt in December 1999 and the plot to attack the Christmas market in Strasbourg in December 2000—is seen as a further blow to British counter-terrorism efforts (Telegraph, July 3).

The release of these two individuals may soon be followed by more, as the British judicial system contends with a double problem in these terrorist cases. First is the inability of British prosecutors to produce evidence that will stand up in court—something which is, in part, the result of the inadmissibility in court of wiretap evidence, a reality that is currently under review—and secondly, the inability of Britain to deport individuals such as these back to their home countries due to EU and UK laws stating that individuals cannot be deported to nations where they may be tortured (Jordan in Abu Qatada’s case, and Algeria in “U’s”). While such concerns were meant to have been addressed with “memorandums of understanding” that the British government signed with Libya, Jordan and Lebanon concerning the treatment of such returnees, British courts decided that other concerns remain—in Abu Qutada’s case there were fears that evidence used in his Jordanian conviction may have been obtained through torture (Sunday Mirror, June 22).

The Life and Times of Abu Qatada

Born in Bethlehem when it was still part of Jordan in 1960, Abu Qatada first came to the UK in September 1993 on a forged passport from the United Arab Emirates. While it remains unclear exactly where he was coming from, he was apparently in Peshawar in 1990, where he attracted many followers before going into Afghanistan in 1992 after fighting had ended in Kabul (CNN, November 3, 2001). Upon arriving in the UK and gaining asylum in June 1994, Qatada started to get involved in the London Islamist scene, eventually becoming one of “Londonistan’s unholy trinity” (the other two being Abu Hamza and Omar Bakri Mohammed) [2]. He quickly adopted the Algerian jihad as his focus, and became editor of the al-Ansar Newsletter while preaching and writing from London in support of the Groupe Islamique Armé’s (GIA) actions [3].

This continued until mid-1996, when, in the face of widespread condemnation throughout the Arab world of the GIA’s brutal targeting of civilians, Abu Qatada denounced the group as “innovators” and formally cut his ties [4]. His work was not, however, solely focused on Algeria and he raised thousands of pounds for Islamist groups around the world. When he was questioned in February 2001, he was found to have £170,000 in cash, including an envelope with £805 in it labeled “for the mujahideen in Chechnya” (BBC, February 26, 2007). He also acted as a mentor for another London preacher, Abu Hamza, reportedly calling him “the best student he ever had” and being “very impressed [at] how quickly Abu Hamza memorized the Koran and Hadith” under his tutelage [5].

While in London it is alleged that Abu Qatada was directly involved in plots abroad, with the Jordanian government trying and sentencing him to life imprisonment in absentia for a bombing plot timed to coincide with the Millennium and investigators connecting him with terrorism cells in Spain, France, Italy and Belgium (Washington Post, July 10, 2005; Guardian, August 11, 2005). Both 9/11’s “20th hijacker” Zacarias Moussaoui and “shoe bomber” Richard Reid sought religious advice from him and he was a known figure at the infamous Finsbury Park Mosque in London (BBC, February 26, 2007). Most ominously, tapes of his sermons were found in the Hamburg flat used by Muhammad Atta and others before the 9/11 attacks.

At various points, it has been claimed that Abu Qatada was an informant for Britain’s Security Service MI5, something that is sometimes pointed to as the reason for why Britain’s services failed to interdict him in the face of an apparent litany of allegations by continental European intelligence services [6]. It is also claimed that during the mid-1990s, he met with MI5 agents and offered to help ensure that terrorist attacks would not take place in the UK (BBC, February 26, 2007). The final piece of evidence that is offered is the fact that he disappeared from MI5’s surveillance just before he was due to be arrested in December 2001, even though he was finally found elsewhere in London 10 months later, “a few minutes’ walk from MI5’s headquarters” [7]. While on the run he remained in close contact with jihadists around the globe through the internet—apparently including Abu Musab al Zarqawi—as well as issuing a legal ruling justifying the 9/11 attacks.

The Wit and Wisdom of Abu Qatada

Amongst Britain’s radical preachers, Abu Qatada usually distinguished himself as the most erudite and productive in literary terms of “Londonistan’s unholy trinity.” Omar Nasiri, who worked undercover in London for British and French intelligence and attended a number of his lectures, identified him as “very intelligent [and] very learned,” speaking a language of jihad that Nasiri noted as “almost identical” to that used in the Afghan training camp he had attended [8]. Qatada’s writing advocates the separation between the Muslim and non-Muslim world; his most cited text, Islamic Movements and Contemporary Alliances, details the dangerous development of Muslim “involvement in alliances with modern non-Islamic powers,” providing an analysis of numerous instances across the Muslim world where this has not worked [9].

He further expounds in his sermons on the concept of a “covenant of security” (aqd al-amaan), explaining that “the land of kufr is considered as a land of war. The exception is if the land has a contract with the Muslims.” However, he qualifies this by citing that “some scholars limit it to 10 years, and the reason they say this is in order for the Muslims to not abandon the jihad against the kuffar” [10]. In other words, he offers a possible time limit for the covenant of security between Muslims and non-Muslims that was often offered as the justification for the lack of attacks in the UK before 7/7. From his new perch in Beirut, Omar Bakri Muhammad recently stated that he left the UK in August 2005 because he felt “the government had violated the ‘covenant of security’ that had hitherto guaranteed peace between Muslims and the British state” (Asia Times, June 12).

In a lengthy series of sermons entitled Sil silatul Iman (the Belief Series), Qatada lays out much of his belief structure. He opens by detailing the presence of three circles of Muslims within the Umma, beginning with “The Muslims,” in other words the 1 billion or so community around the globe, who have within them the more selective “Saved Sect” and finally within this sub-group, the “Victorious Sect” [11]. He then goes on in great detail to answer a vast number of theological questions and definitions, before turning to the topic of jihad. In response to the question “What is required in order to establish an Islamic state?” Abu Qutada replied that “dignity is only established through jihad” [12]. After a long series of detailed explanations, Abu Qutada justifies the use of jihad:

"It is jihad that breaths life into the ummah [Muslim community]. It is the jihad that distinguished the Muslim from the hypocrite. We must be proud that we are the tool that Allah uses against the kuffar to punish them. What is this life that’s so precious to us? It is worse than that of a dog, this humiliated and submissive life where the ummah is subjected to the worst of crimes, and groups still insist that Muslims should use peaceful measures in order to bring change. How ignorant!” [13]

Some have accused Abu Qatada of making permissible “the killing of women and children… [and] using other people’s money by any means, claiming that such monies were the spoils of war” [14]. In the context of his Iman sermons, this does not seem too far off, as he concludes that the blood of both apostates and their women is halal (permissible) and “that the wealth that belongs to the group is permissible. Therefore you are permitted to steal it from them, and even assassinate its members” [15]. To support this process of justification, Abu Qatada cites the 9th-10th century Persian Sunni historian Imam Tabari and 13th-14th century Islamic scholar Ibn Taimiyah, a frequently cited authority for today’s Islamists.

Conclusion

In his ruling on the decision to release Abu Qatada, Justice Mitting stated: “The appellant represents a continuing and significant risk to national security,” and the Home Secretary has declared the government will fight this decision [16]. Nonetheless, Abu Qatada now rests comfortably in West London in an £800,000 house, living with his family on welfare from the British government amounting to more than £50,000 a year (Daily Mail, June 23). For some this is merely a reflection of the “fair play” in the British legal system, however, it has left many counter-terrorism experts exasperated and raises concerns over how the UK will manage to deal with the 2,000 dangerous individuals currently under surveillance by the Security Services.

With the recent collapse of cases against “lyrical terrorist” Samina Malik and the so-called “Bradford Five,” the British legal system has shown it has a real problem in convicting individuals it alleges are domestic terrorists (Times, June 18; Guardian, February 14). The release to house arrest of Abu Qatada, one of the more infamous names in extremist literature around the globe, has merely reinforced the fact that this problem extends to foreigners in the UK as well. While an argument could be made that such rulings deflate Muslim perceptions of xenophobia in the British legal system, the reality is that very real security concerns are not going away and a quick read of many of the chatrooms or webpages frequented by British Muslims would indicate that British “fair play” is not filtering through to the community. The surprising release of Abu Qatada makes it clear that many fissures existing in the current system of dealing with domestic terrorist threats remain in need of repair.

Under Siege? Spain Resists Islamic ‘Invasion’ (W/Video)
CBN News ^ | 06FEB12 | Dale Hurd

Posted on Wednesday, February 08, 2012 5:09:13 PM by bayouranger

BARCELONA, Spain — Bullfighting is now illegal in the Spanish province of Catalonia. Some arenas have been converted into business spaces.

But Muslims want to turn the most famous arena, the Coliseum, into a giant mosque.

In fact, some cities in Spain now look more like the Middle East. Muslims, who once ruled most of nation, are returning in large numbers.

In the city of Salt, parents have come to pick up their children from school. Muslims already make up 40 percent of city residents and will soon be the majority.

But the city government has pushed back, placing a one-year hold on a large mosque project funded by radical Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia.

For good measure, someone cursed the ground at the building site with a pig head that was still there when CBN News arrived. Islamic law forbids the building of a mosque on ground soiled by pigs.

But the number of Muslims in Salt is increasing so rapidly, it is now only a matter of time before Muslims will be running the city.

“When the first Muslim political party presents itself, all the Muslims will vote for it, and we’ll all end up wearing headscarves. We’re in a really big problem,” Salt city councilwoman Maria Osuna told CBN News.

Immigration or Invasion?

In the 7th century, Muslim armies conquered most of Spain, calling it Al-Andulus. They would not be completely expelled for 700 years, the year Columbus discovered the new world.

Now Muslims are returning, and polls suggest they are not returning to be Spaniards. A Pew survey found that 7 out of 10 Muslims in Spain think of themselves as Muslim rather than Spaniards.

“Plataforma x Catalunya,” or Platform for Catalonia, was the first political party to take the Muslim surge seriously. But in politically correct Spain, which celebrated the 1,300-year anniversary of the Muslim invasion as a good thing, Platform for Catalonia is denounced as racist and xenophobic.

Platform leader Joseph Anglada said his party is not against immigrants. They’re against uncontrolled immigration and what they say are immigrants who do not want to be a part of Spain.

“Muslim immigrants are not here to adapt,” Anglada said. “They’re here to conquer.”

“First the husband comes as the head of the family,” he explained. “Then the wife and children, and later he comes with his parents, in-laws,and grandparents, and it has turned into an invasion.”

‘Mysterious’ Dog Poisonings

In the city of Lleida, someone is poisoning dogs. Police don’t know who has been doing it, but the suspicion is that Muslims were the culprits.

Before the poisonings, Muslims were trying to get city government to ban dogs from public transport and public areas because they consider dogs unclean.

“What happened was, all of a sudden, one day, 12 to 14 animals showed up dead. They had eaten something or been given something. We don’t know,” Josep Ortiz I Llleida told CBN News.

Lleida, which is about one-quarter Muslim, was the first Spanish city to ban the burqa. Then the mayor shut down the city’s mosque because it was overflowing with Friday worshippers.

CBN News went to see where the Muslim men are praying now, and it is a large open air pavilion. Filming with a hidden camera, we saw more than 500 men listening to a sermon in Arabic.

“We don’t know what the Muslim leaders are telling their people,” Moises Font with Platform for Catalonia said. “Are they encouraging Muslims to assimilate or to stay separate?”

Spaniards Disappearing

There are reportedly more than 100 radical Wahhabi mosques in Spain. And two radical Muslim TV channels from the Middle East are now broadcasting into Spain.

And just as Muslim immigration is surging, the native Spanish are slowly disappearing. Their birth rate is below the replacement number.

Also, large numbers of college age Spaniards are fleeing the country to escape a 50 percent unemployment rate for young people.

Meanwhile, the Muslim birthrate is at least twice the native birthrate, and the number of Muslims has increased tenfold in the last 20 years.

A secret report by Spanish intelligence leaked to the media found that radical groups from the Middle East are pouring large sums of money into Spain to control the nation’s Muslims.

“The greatest threat for Spain, Catalonia, and Europe is Muslim immigration,” Anglada told CBN News.

“We know they are coming here to conquer what, according to Muslims, used to belong to them,” he said. “We have a moral duty so that in the future they can say that at least there was someone, one party, that was not willing to surrender the West to Islamization.”

Most of the money raised by the brothers came from themselves or other family members. They collected less than $100,000 from other people — and those contributions also will be returned.

At the time of the donations, the brothers were not registered voters. Alberto Rojas Cardona, 42, registered in Illinois last month and Carlos Rojas Cardona, 50, does not appear to be registered, a Chicago Board of Elections spokesman said.

Alberto Rojas Cardona lives in a Gold Coast high-rise and Carlos in a luxury apartment building overlooking Grant Park. Alberto declined to speak with Tribune reporters. Messages left at Carlos’ home were not returned.

http://www.suntimes.com/news/sweet/10499393-452/obama-oks-superpac-giving-refunds-2-brothers-donations.html

Manny Sanchez is a Chicago lawyer and Obama fund-raiser who helps raise money among Hispanics. He said he met Alberto and Carlos Cardona at an Obama National Finance Committee meeting in Washington last December. He was struck that he did not know the Chicagoans because “it is rare for me not to know a Latino supporter.”

According to records in the Illinois Secretary of State office, the brothers are Near North Side residents — living close to the Obama campaign Prudential Building headquarters. According to Federal Election Commission and state records, they run Tango Latin Inc. and an affiliate, Tango Productions, marketing and promotion firms.

The New York Times also reported that Carlos Rojas Cardona “arranged for the former chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party to seek a pardon from the governor for Pepe Cardona, according to prosecutors in that state. None was forthcoming.”

Asked by the Sun-Times why the campaign vetters — who focus on major donors, not the million or so small contributors — did not pick up on the Cardona family, the senior official said, “it was very difficult to track down full information on this one. Obviously the New York Times put investigative resources into doing so. We don’t necessarily have, our vetters don’t necessarily have, that same ability to pursue that in the case of our 1.3 million donors. As soon as the questions were raised, we refunded the contributions.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Two non-registered voters, who raised over 200K for Obama and the DNC and had an ex-chairman of the Iowa DNC request a pardon for their fugitive brother from the Iowa governor, were members of the National Finance Committee meeting last December in DC where Obama addressed the crowd ... AND NO ONE KNEW WHO THEY WERE?!

Fishy indeed!

Obama on 2012: ‘This Is Going to Be Tough’

Admitting his re-election is “not a slam-dunk,” President Obama today asked supporters to stick with him in 2012 because “this is going to be tough.”

“It’s understandable if people aren’t feeling as chipper as they were back in 2008,” given the state of the economy, the president said.

“There’s going to be some skepticism. There’s going to be some pushback,” Obama told members of his campaign’s National Finance Committee.

The country still has a ways to go after facing a crossroads in 2008, President Barack Obama said Tuesday as he spoke to top donors for his reelection campaign.

“Back in 2008 we used to talk about this being a historic moment for America, that we were at a crossroads in our history,” he said at a midday event for members of the Obama campaign’s National Finance Committee at a Washington hotel. “We haven’t fully crossed the road, and in some ways 2012 is even more important than it was four years ago. The choices could not be starker.”

All money raised goes to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint account shared by the campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Something is really, really, really not right

… The New York Times has a really bizarre story on the front page today. I will make some remarks about the story and then there is a link at the bottom for you to read the entire story. I don’t want to run wild with crazy conspiracy stories but there are some really peculiar parts of this New York Time story that warrants further

investigation. First some bullet points:

* Juan Jose Rojas Cardona (“Pepe” and hereinafter I will refer to him as that) lives in Mexico and is part of the casino business (known as Mexico’s casino czar) with a very shady background and record. He is linked to violence and corruption in Mexico. According to a State Department cable in 2009, he was suspected of orchestrating the assassination of a business rival and making illegal campaign donations to Mexican officials;

* Pepe is wanted in the USA for state charges in Iowa going back to the early 1990′s. After his Iowa conviction in the early 90′s, he was sentenced to 5 years but then he jumped bail on the Iowa conviction.

* THE STRANGEST THING HAPPENED IN 1998 – 4 years after his plea of guilty to Federal charges. I have never seen this happen before — Federal Prosecutors, even though Pepe had jumped bail a second time (and thus avoiding prison) and was in Mexico beyond their reach, went to a Federal Judge and convinced the Judge to quash the indictment.

Third link: hospital workers first, the rest of us thereafter. No voter ID or E-Verify, but how long until the rest of us are required mandatory ID chips? Not that long ago it was considered outrageous, but with this government gestapo in charge, ala Nancy Pelosi's infamous boast, it's we, the people, who must later deal with the consequences of their actions.

Medicine used as a weapon of persecution in Syria

Snip: "In Syria today, wounded patients and doctors are pursued and risk torture and arrest at the hands of the security services," said Marie-Pierre Allié, MSF president. "Medicine is being used as a weapon of persecution."

North Korea is rebuilding these US drones and strapping them with high explosives

Snip: Capable of flying at 40,000 feet at speeds up to 575 mph, the North Koreans are also experimenting with equipping the drones with high explosives, but have so far yet to succeed.

Panel: Hospitals should consider mandatory flu shots

Snip: WASHINGTON -- If hospitals and clinics can't get 90% of their employees to get an annual flu shot, they should "strongly consider" making the vaccine mandatory, a federal vaccines panel voted Wednesday.

The National Vaccine Advisory Committee (NVAC) voted 12-2, with one panelist abstaining, that if hospitals and healthcare facilities implement a number of NVAC-endorsed recommendations -- including staff training and trying to create a culture where flu shots are the norm -- and still fail to get 90% of workers vaccinated, they should consider a mandate.

"Medicine is being used as a weapon of persecution."

The "magic won" should be soooo proud of how the arab spring turned out.

RE: flu shot....my husband was hospitalized last year. He asked the nurses that he saw if they ever got a flu shot. Out of the 5 he asked, 4 said "NO!" I thought that was interesting. Even our DIL (who's an R.N.) refuses the flu shot.

The dems won't be satisfied until they control EVERY aspect of our lives.

CNN Fired All Jewish Journalists (In Israel)
by sheikyermami on February 10, 2012

On a tip from BCF:

I’m not surprised. The Caliphate News Networx gets its advertising revenue almost entirely from the Arabs. The newscasters are disproportionally Muselmaniacs. What we see here is way beyond infiltration: this is Tokyo Rose behind enemy lines:

Update at 8:30 PST: we just received the names of the four journalists that were fired:
Moshe Cohen, editor, fired on january 30, 10 years with CNN.
Izi Landberg, Producer, about 25 years with CNN, fired on January 30.
Avi Kaner cameraman fired on january 30, 10 years with CNN.
Michal Zippori desk producer, situation still unclear.
The media scandal that you are about to read was revealed to us by a totally reliable source.

It is likely to provoke a wave of shock and indignation within the North American media industry, and it certainly will not calm down the controversy over the pro-palestinian CNN treatment of the conflict.

We learned today that the Israeli branch of CNN, located in Jerusalem, is downsizing to cope with reduced income from less advertising.
What goes beyond good management is that CNN has fired four Israeli Jewish journalists (out of a crew of 8), and has retained only Arab journalists. Where, until now, CNN always sent a Jewish and an Arab journalist to cover information, now there will be only an Arab journalist. The local chief editor of the News Chanel is now Arabic.
This is a conflict where information is central to public opinion, and it weighs a lot on diplomatic decisions. Furthermore, it is no secret that Arab journalists cannot freely publish what they want without risking for their own lives when traveling to Gaza, East Jerusalem, and Judea Samaria. Thus, CNN decision to fire all Jewish journalists from its Jerusalem office is of particular concern, because the general public is unaware that they will be receiving biased information from CNN.

Feds arrest man allegedly heading to U.S. Capitol for suicide mission
Fox News ^ | 2/17/12 | Mike Levine

Posted on Friday, February 17, 2012 2:04:44 PM by exbrit

Authorities have arrested a man allegedly on his way to the U.S. Capitol for what he thought would be a suicide attack on one of the nation’s most symbolic landmarks, Fox News has learned exclusively. The man, in his 30s and of Moroccan descent, was nabbed following a lengthy investigation by the FBI, initiated after he expressed interest in conducting an attack. It’s unclear how the FBI learned of his aspirations. The man thought undercover FBI agents assisting him in his plot were associates of Al Qaeda.

Kurt Haskell is a lawyer in Michigan and often practices at the same court that his victim statement was made this week at the Christmas Day Underwear Bomber's sentencing hearing. Being a frequent flyer and often passing through Amsterdam and being a Platinum member of Delta I have followed this story. It smelled when it broke, it smelled the way Zippo's administration handled it, on and on. What Mr Haskell is telling us in open court as an attorney is that government orchestrated this attack on American Citizens.

When reading my statement, keep in mind that I am a practicing attorney in the State of Michigan. In addition, I regularly practice in the Court the hearings are taking place at and therefore, I am somewhat limited as to what I can say.
[snip]When I attended the jury selection hearings, I questioned why versions of the same two questions kept coming up, those being:

1. Do you think whether you'll be able to tell whether something is actually a bomb? and

2. Do you realize that sometimes the media doesn't always tell the truth?

Victim Impact Statement

The effect this matter has had on my life has been astounding and due to this case, I will never trust the government in any matter, ever.

“Caliphate Conference” Seeks to Islamize Europe, U.S.
Stonegate Institute ^ | February 21, 2012 | Soeren Kern

Posted on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 1:07:15 AM by george76

The explicit aim of the Istanbul Process — currently backed by the Obama administration — is to make it an international crime to criticize Islam.

A Muslim fundamentalist group is organizing a conference focused on turning Austria and other European countries into Islamic states.

The “Caliphate Conference 2012” will be held on March 10 in the Austrian town of Vösendorf, situated just south of Vienna. The main theme of the event will be “The Caliphate: The State Model of the Future.”

The conference is being organized by Hizb ut-Tahrir [Party of Liberation], a pan-Islamic extremist group that seeks to establish a global Islamic state, or caliphate, ruled by Islamic Sharia law.

Hizb ut-Tahrir — which is banned in many countries, including Germany, but is free to operate in Austria — is virulently opposed to Western capitalism and democracy and seeks to extend the future caliphate to Europe and the United States.

According to a promotional video (in German) for the conference, “the Islamic Caliphate is the only social and political system that has the right solutions to the political, social and economic problems of humanity.”

Hizb ut-Tahrir has been banned from holding a similar conference in Belgium that had been scheduled for March 4. The group also organized a Caliphate Conference in Amsterdam last July, 2011, and well as a year earlier in Chicago in June, 2010.

...

According to Ye’or, “The caliphate is alive and growing within Europe…It has advanced through the denial of dangers and the obfuscating of history. It has moved forward on gilded carpets in the corridors of dialogue, the network of the Alliances and partnerships, in the corruption of its leaders, intellectuals and NGOs, particularly at the United Nations.”

Obama to law enforcement: Stop linking Muslims to Terrorism
canadafreepress.com ^ | Feb. 20, 2012 | Jim Kouri

Posted on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 10:27:52 PM by Free ThinkerNY

In yet another curtsy to the politically correct orthodoxy, President Barack Obama’s White House plans to tinker with federal police curriculums for counterterrorism training classes. The first bit of “revamping” is the removal of all material that groups, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, find offensive or containing a “negative” image of Muslims.

It’s a government-wide call to end Islamophobia, according to a blog by a Washington, DC-based watchdog group that investigates, exposes and prosecutes government corruption.

A few months after the Obama White House ordered an investigation of government counterterrorism training, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has destroyed instructional material that characterizes Muslims as prone to violence or terrorism, according to the Judicial Watch blog.

So far 700 pages of documents from about 300 presentations given to agents since the 2001 terrorist attacks have been purged, according to a new report published this week. The White House order came after the same publication reported in late November that the FBI, Department of Justice (DOJ) and Pentagon taught employees that mainstream Muslims embrace violence and compared the Islamic religion to the death star.

'The Istanbul Process': Hillary Clinton Hosts Summit On Religious Intolerance

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrapped up a summit of international leaders this week to explore specific steps to combat intolerance, discrimination and violence on the basis of religion or belief.

The closed-door meeting on Wednesday (Dec. 14) was the first of an ongoing series called "The Istanbul Process." Representatives came from 30 countries and international organizations, including Egypt, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.

"We are working together to protect two fundamental freedoms -- the right to practice one's religion freely, and the right to express one's opinion without fear," Clinton said in her closing remarks.

"Caliphate Conference" Seeks to Islamize Europe, U.S.

A Muslim fundamentalist group is organizing a conference focused on turning Austria and other European countries into Islamic states.

The "Caliphate Conference 2012" will be held on March 10 in the Austrian town of Vösendorf, situated just south of Vienna. The main theme of the event will be "The Caliphate: The State Model of the Future."

The conference is being organized by Hizb ut-Tahrir [Party of Liberation], a pan-Islamic extremist group that seeks to establish a global Islamic state, or caliphate, ruled by Islamic Sharia law.

Hizb ut-Tahrir -- which is banned in many countries, including Germany, but is free to operate in Austria -- is virulently opposed to Western capitalism and democracy and seeks to extend the future caliphate to Europe and the United States.

According to a promotional video (in German) for the conference, "the Islamic Caliphate is the only social and political system that has the right solutions to the political, social and economic problems of humanity."

Hizb ut-Tahrir has been banned from holding a similar conference in Belgium that had been scheduled for March 4. The group also organized a Caliphate Conference in Amsterdam last July, 2011, and well as a year earlier in Chicago in June, 2010.

Analysts say the open nature of the conference in Vienna indicates that Hizb ut-Tahrir is enhancing its recruiting efforts among European Muslims.

According to Steven Emerson, a leading authority on Islamic extremist networks, Hizb ut-Tahrir is emulating the three-stage process by which Muslims established the first Islamic caliphate after the death of the Islamic Prophet, Mohammed, in the year 632.

During the first stage, Hizb ut-Tahrir builds a party by cultivating a small number of supporters to engage in recruitment and propaganda. In the second stage (which Hizb ut-Tahrir is now entering in Europe and the United States), the group educates Muslims in order to recruit a larger group of people to join Hizb ut-Tahrir and support its revolution. Finally, having won the support of Muslims, Hizb ut-Tahrir moves to establish a Sharia-ruled Islamic government.

While Muslims are busy working to Islamize the West from within, they simultaneously insist that Westerners should not be allowed to criticize these efforts.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a group of 57 Muslim countries that purports to be the collective voice of the Muslim world, sponsored an anti-Islamophobia symposium in Brussels on February 15 and 16, 2012.

The first-of-its-kind event was entitled "Smearing Islam and Muslims in the Media," and was "aimed at establishing information mechanisms to face up to the slanderous campaigns against Islam in the media."

The workshop was part of the so-called Istanbul Process, an aggressive effort by Muslim countries to make it an international crime to criticize Islam.

The explicit aim of the Istanbul Process is to enshrine in international law a global ban on all critical scrutiny of Islam and Islamic Sharia law.

Based in Saudi Arabia, the OIC has long pressed the European Union and the United States to impose limits on free speech and expression about Islam.

But the OIC has now redoubled its efforts and is engaged in a determined diplomatic offensive to persuade Western democracies to implement United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 16/18, which calls on all countries to combat "intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of … religion and belief." (Analysis of the OIC's war on free speech can be found here and here.)

Resolution 16/18, which was adopted at HRC headquarters in Geneva in March 2011, is widely viewed as a significant step forward in OIC efforts to advance the international legal concept of defaming Islam.

However, the HRC resolution -- as well as the OIC-sponsored Resolution 66/167, which was quietly approved by the 193-member UN General Assembly on December 19, 2011 -- remains ineffectual as long as it lacks strong support in the West.

The OIC therefore scored a diplomatic coup when the Obama Administration agreed to host a three-day Istanbul Process conference in Washington, DC on December 12-14, 2011. In doing so, the United States gave the OIC the political legitimacy it has been seeking to globalize its initiative to ban criticism of Islam.

Following the Obama Administration's lead, the European Union now wants to get in on the action by hosting the next Istanbul Process summit.

Up until now, the European Union has kept the OIC initiative at arms-length. But Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, Secretary-General of the OIC, says the EU's recent offer to host the meeting represents a "qualitative shift in action against the phenomenon of Islamophobia," according to the International Islamic News Agency (IINA), the OIC's official news and propaganda organ.

According to the IINA, "The phenomenon of Islamophobia is found in the West in general, but is growing in European countries in particular, in a manner different from that in the US, which had contributed to drafting Resolution 16/18. The new European position represents the beginning of the shift from its previous reserve over the years over the attempts by the OIC to counter 'defamation of religions' in the Human Rights Council and the General Assembly of the United Nations."

The IINA report continues: "Officials in the Cultural Affairs Department of the OIC said that the European Union's offer to host the third meeting (the first was in Istanbul in July, and the second in Washington, DC last December) is considered a promising new possibility of solving this problem. The 'Istanbul Process' will have an added momentum by holding the meeting in Europe, which is more affected by the phenomenon of Islamophobia and hostility towards Islam."

According to the OIC, the anti-Islamophobia workshop in February was of "particular importance" as it was held only weeks before the UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva from February 27 to March 23, during which time Resolution 16/18 will come to a second vote.

In September 2011, an OIC organ called the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (IESCO), organized a seminar in Brussels on "how to deal with stereotypical images of Islam in European television programs."

The seminar was designed to help European journalists "identify characteristics of stereotypes about Islam in European television programs, highlight the dangers of defamation of religions, and clarify the distinction between freedom of expression and the right to cultural difference, the commitment to the Islamic cultural identity and the struggle against racism and hatred."

In her latest book titled "Europe, Globalization, and the Coming of the Universal Caliphate," Bat Ye'or, a leading scholar on Islam in the West, writes that the OIC is essentially a "would-be universal caliphate" which exercises significant power through the European Union, the United Nations and other international organizations.

Ye'or describes an OIC strategy manual, "Strategy of Islamic Cultural Action in the West," in which the OIC asserts that "Muslim immigrant communities in Europe are part of the Islamic nation." The document goes on to recommend "a series of steps to prevent the integration and assimilation of Muslims into European culture."

According to Ye'or, "The caliphate is alive and growing within Europe…It has advanced through the denial of dangers and the obfuscating of history. It has moved forward on gilded carpets in the corridors of dialogue, the network of the Alliances and partnerships, in the corruption of its leaders, intellectuals and NGOs, particularly at the United Nations."

US Muslims are “ahead” of schedule in the USA, thanks to a subversive adm and subservient press.

Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.

Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.

Here’s how it works.

As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:

United States — Muslim 0.6%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1.8%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves – along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in:

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 15%

After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7% .

From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%

Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.

‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.

Today’s 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Some say Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.
