ALABAMA residents continue their battle against expansion of Islamic Indoctrination Center in Mobile

3500534_GThe Islamic center on East Drive in Mobile is tattered and torn. Its president, Shafik Hammami has requested redevelopment, but was turned down last year by city council. And they aren’t the only ones with objections. “They want to add on and add on and it’s going to take more parking and they’re gonna start parking in the street,” says neighbor Mike Warden.

WKRG  A revised plan for the facility includes a two-story building with classrooms for about 80 students and a 6,400 square-foot mosque. They’ll present their proposal to the Planning Commission Thursday.

Traffic is the main concern among neighbors we spoke with. East Drive runs from Airport Boulevard right up to the University of South Alabama.  “Even when there’s a sports event, the traffic on this street, even when there’s classes in the morning the traffic on this street is really, really bad,” says Dianne. And traffic isn’t her only concern, she says folks on their way from these apartments back here to the Islamic Center will often sit and chat at this picnic table located in her front yard.

Shafik Hammami, President of the Islamic Center turned down our request for an interview, saying he didn’t want to talk before his proposal to the Planning Commission on Thursday, but in an interview last May says he believes prejudice against the religion is to blame. (He’s right! People don’t want more Muslims the neighborhood)

“The truth is we are a peaceful religion and we have nothing to do with all these terrorist attacks going on all over the world,” says Hammami. (We just cheer them on from afar)

And though it was not mentioned today, neighbors could be concerned after several attacks and hate crimes aimed at mosques were carried out recently in the U.S. Whatever the reason, neighbors plan to fight it. “My sister’s going to go down there and fight it again,” says Warden.




Hmmm, now ‘The Daily Beast’ has 3rd rate Muslim comedians writing political commentary

dean obeidallah bigI guess when you’re a failed comedian (jokes about Islamophobia have a limited audience), you get to write articles for a 3rd rate leftist website. Here is Palestinian-American Muslim Dean Obeidallah’s opinion about the anti-Islam textbook bill recently passed in Florida.

‘Islamophobic’ Florida Republican Would Legalize Textbook Censorship


The Daily Beast  A state senator who says Muslims threaten America wants to give more control to local school boards after a ‘hate’ group asked students to tear out one book’s chapter on Islam.

Could a seemingly innocent education bill championed by Republicans actually be a way for them to censor school textbooks and prevent students from learning about certain (Islam) cultures and religions?  In the words of Sarah Palin: “You betcha.”


On Friday, the Florida State Senate passed a bill drafted by Republican Senator Alan Hays that would change the way textbooks are chosen in the Sunshine State. This measure, which was opposed by every Democratic Senator, would alter a process that had been created to “avoid religious and political bias” and empower the local school districts to choose their own textbooks without the approval of the Florida Department of Education.


But there’s more to this legislation than just education, after all it’s opposed by the Florida Parent Teacher Association and the Florida School Board Association. Add to that, this proposal was not requested by any local school boards. In fact, some boards have voiced concerns that they lack the funds and resources to review textbooks.

So why this law? Well, two reasons. It’s part of the Republicans backlash to the Common Core academic standards that they incorrectly dub a federal program. It’s not, it’s a bipartisan State initiative started by Governors.

But the bigger reason Senator Hays is pushing for this law is because of Islam. No, he isn’t a Muslim. Thankfully.

Basic CMYK

You see, in November a protest erupted in Volusia County, Florida by outraged parents who claimed the school’s world history textbook had dedicated more pages to Islam than other religions.  One of the protest organizers even recommended that students tear out the chapter onIslam. God forbid Florida students learn about other cultures and religions (No, only Islam).


Soon anti-Muslim groups got involved to stop the “Islamization of public school” textbooks, including the despicable “Act for America.” When you see the name, “Act for America” please keep in mind that the (Communist) Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has listed it as a hate group and the (Far leftist) Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has identified them as “extremists.”

Well these Muslim book bashers found a perfect friend in Senator Hays.  After all, for the past four years Hays has introduced legislation to ban sharia law in Florida courts. Of course, there hasn’t been any instances of people trying to impose Sharia law in Florida but why should Hays let facts get in the way of demonizing Muslims when it plays to his base? And play to his base it does.

And the Republican Party in Hays own Senate district recently featured a speaker from “Act for America” – yes, that horrible group – (only horrible to Muslim supremacists like you) who offered a talk described as: “If you believe that Islam is just another religion (and not a threat to America and the world)…then you especially need to hear this presentation.”


But putting aside Hays personal views about Muslims, the legislation is alarming because it could lead to censorship. As Democratic Florida State Senator Geraldine Thompson explained to me, this law would enable all 67 Florida school districts to adopt their own textbooks. Consequently, some districts may ban books that discuss other lifestyles or cultures they find objectionable.


I reached out to Senator Hays for comment but he never responded. Although I wasn’t surprised because his staffer I spoke to had never heard of The Daily Beast. (Only leftists have ever heard of this biased rag)

This proposed law could truly result in conservative school districts putting aside what’s in the best interest of the students (Islam is NEVER in the best interest of anyone) and instead only choosing textbooks that teach political and social views that comport with their right wing politics. (As if anything related to the far left American school system could be considered right wing)

At this point, the Senate bill is headed to the Florida State House for consideration. Hopefully, the members of the Florida House, Democrats and Republicans alike, will reject Senator Hays’ proposed legislation.  Any other result will open the dangerous door of censorship in the Florida school system. (NOT censoring Islam is the only danger to Florida schools)

NYPD chief won’t honor officer slain by Muslims for fear of offending Muslims

PBA 2012A plan to honor a Harlem cop killed by Nation of Islam Muslim is drowning under a flood of racial (what ‘race’ is Islam?) tensions created more than four decades ago, but no one wants to throw it a lifeline — not even the NYPD’s new top cop. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is distancing himself from the plan to name the street in front of the 28th Precinct in the slain cop’s honor.

NY Daily News  Police Commissioner Bill Bratton is distancing himself from the controversial push to get the street in front of the 28th Precinct renamed in honor of Officer Phillip Cardillo, who was shot and killed inside a mosque run by Louis Farrakhan in 1972 — noting that the community should make the final decision.

“The Police Commissioner always welcomes the honoring and memorializing of fallen NYPD officers,” Deputy Commissioner Stephen Davis, the NYPD’s top spokesman, said when asked if Bratton favored the street renaming. “However, the issue of street naming is primarily a decision for the community board and other local leaders.”

Cardillo’s family, friends, and former police officers marked the 42nd anniversary of the cop’s death with an annual motorcycle ride from his grave at Calvary Cemetery in Queens to the W. 123rd St. cop shop — and were not shy about lashing out against how Bratton sidestepped the issue.


I don’t think it’s a good representation of his brotherhood of blue,” said Christopher Cardillo, 46, the fallen cop’s first cousin. “Why should the community’s vote have such a strong presence when we are talking about renaming a street outside a police station for a police officer? How could that be a bad thing for the community?”

Manhattan’s Community Board 10 hasn’t reviewed the proposal since last May, even though advocates pushing for the renaming handed over thousands of petition signatures and Inspector Rodney Harrison, the former commanding officer of the 28th Precinct, made a personal plea to honor Cardillo.

Before the issue was shelved, board members voiced concerns that the street renaming would displease local Muslims and “open old wounds.”


The racially-charged incident began when Cardillo, 31, and his partner, Vito Navarra, entered Mohammad Mosque No. 7 on W. 116th St. and Lenox Ave. — where Malcolm X once preached — after receiving a bogus 911 call about a detective in need of assistance.

The two cops were quickly overpowered by about 15 men. During the attack, someone took Cardillo’s gun and shot him in the chest. The father of three children, the oldest 5, the youngest just 2, died of his wounds six days later.

The main suspect in the shooting was Louis 17X Dupree. Dupree, who now goes by the name Khalid Ali and is in his 70s, was arrested twice for murder and was set free after two trials, officials said.

CLEVELAND: Where are the media condemning Muslim cab drivers for refusing to drive for the Gay Games?

Where is Eric Holder suing the cab companies for homophobia? Where are the courts forcing the drivers to ignore their beliefs as they do with Christians? Crickets. Muslim cabbies, for religious reasons, are refusing to drive cabs with signs promoting the Gay Games on top of airport cabs.


19 Action News Brian Duffy spoke with about 20 cabbies at the airport who are still driving and all of them confirmed there are drivers who have walked off the job on protest. Representatives of AmeriCab, one of the three cab companies on the job at the airport, also confirmed the protest but say only one of their drivers has been reassigned.

We’re told at least 16-17 drivers who work for Ace Taxi, another company working out of the airport, are no longer driving. We went to Ace but were told they were too busy to talk to us. Yellow Cab, a third cab company at the airport, never returned our calls.

Tom Nobbe, the executive director of the games, says he’s a bit disappointed. “When you look at what’s going on around the world it’s not a huge surprise. In some parts of the world LGBT folks are not very welcome,” said Tom Nobbe of the Gay Games.

“Even though there will be a handful of folks who are not comfortable the vast majority and we’re seeing it now are totally enthusiastic and ready to welcome all these folks into town,” added Nobbe.


 Today, two of the three taxi cab companies (Ace and Yellow Taxi Cab) operating from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE) were informed by several of their drivers they will no longer participate in the airport’s (CLE) dedicated taxi cab program. The drivers informed their respective companies their decision was based on religious reasons. The airport is committed to providing this necessary customer service to our arriving passengers seeking transportation from the airport to their final destination. An agreement has been brokered by the airport between the taxi cab stand operator, Standard Parking, and the affected taxi cab companies that will allow for the replacement of those drivers who no longer wish to participate in CLE’s taxi cab program. The affected taxi cab companies will backfill the airport’s dedicated fleet with metered taxi cabs until each company can hire permanent drivers for the airport’s taxi cab program. It is expected to take approximately 2-3 weeks to repopulate the airport’s Taxi fleet.




The main point we can take from this panel of San Francisco Bay Area Muslims is that they don’t want to think of themselves as Americans first

Nearly 13 years since the September 11th Islamic terrorist attacks, Muslims in America, and the 250,000 living in the Bay Area, still face fear, reprisals and a variety of misunderstandings that make daily life continuously difficult.

Now, as part of an increasingly active effort to publicly confront Islam’s many challenges, American Muslims and scholars are sponsoring presentations, studies, analyses and in-depth demographic explanations of their community. The idea is that by being more open, Muslims will craft a peace that still eludes them.

On Wednesday in San Jose, one such panel revolved around “Growing Up Muslim.” “If we have learned nothing else,” said Rasheeda Plenty, a second-generation African-American college student, “it’s that we can’t keep to ourselves and stay quietly in the background. If Muslims want people to know us and understand us, we have to get out there and show the public who we are and what we’re really about.”

Dr. Hatem Bazian, Abass Darab and Rasheeda

Dr. Hatem Bazian, Abass Darab and Rasheeda

The program inside the Joyce Ellington Library laid out in great detail the results of a study of Bay Area Muslims by Farid Senzai, a political science professor at Santa Clara University. Along with Hatem Bazian, an ethnic studies professor at UC Berkeley, the authors measured everything from ethnic breakdown to marital status, from socioeconomics to employment, from levels of education to languages spoken.

One panel, made up of young adults, was the embodiment of variety. They included an African-American woman without a hijab (headbag), an African-American woman with a hijab, a Pakistani-American with a hijab, an Afghan-American with an ethnic-style beard and even a Muslim who was raised Jewish. All of them spoke about the challenges around strict dieting, the daily prayer regimen and often distinct personal appearance that come along with being young and Muslim.

Sadia Saifuddin, the first Muslim UC student regent, said her opposition to the university investing in three American companies who do business in Israel brought extra vitriolic criticism her way. “During my (regent) nomination process there was a ton of negative coverage about my character and how I was anti-semitic and all these terrible accusations,” Saifuddin said. “It was really hard for me to say ‘I’m a proud Muslim (Jew-hater) and also a proud human-rights activist and that I stand by my values and my beliefs.’ “

Sadia Saifuddin

Salmon Hossein, a law student at UC Berkeley, said the mere presence of his thick, black beard brings all kinds of grief, including cruel comments about him “looking like the Taliban,” or him never being able “to get a job.” He talked about how young Muslims who don’t fit the typical mold of youth can find themselves battling waves of negative attention.

“People forget Muslims are diverse,” Hossein said. “They are conservative and liberal; they are religious and non-religious; they are brown, white and black. But if one doesn’t drink or date, or chooses to pray or attend mosque or fast, a lot of burdens and expectations get placed on you by your peers. And then, they go on to make even more assumptions on your behalf.”

(Leftie Judenrat) David Weinstein, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley in a Jewish family, took years of searching his soul to arrive at what he considers the beauty and peace of Islam.

“Am I doing this because I feel an emptiness as a culture-less white American with a Jewish identify? Do I want to embrace this radical identity to make myself feel more interesting? But I kept grilling myself until I realized, I really do want to be Muslim. This is really what I feel and believe.”

As with virtually all Muslim supremacists in America, even U.S. citizens, Hossein could never think of himself as an American first. Islam doesn’t allow it.


MASSACHUSETTS: Somali Muslim student protest against alleged ‘bullying’ – prelude to a CAIR lawsuit?

Three Somali Muslim (known troublemakers) sisters allege: “We were called terrorists, suicide bombers, towel-heads” and other insults, said Najma Hussein, adding the sisters also suffered routine physical abuse, from being pushed, tripped and punched to having their headbags pulled off.


MASS Live  Students at Westfield State University are planning to picket West Springfield High School to protest what three sisters called a pattern of anti-Islamic bullying by students and inaction by school officials.  The sisters – Najma, Hibo and Filsan Hussein, all of West Springfield – gave their account of verbal and physical abuse to a class at Westfield State taught by a MUSLIM associate professor Kamal Ali, who is also vice president of the Islamic Society of Western Mass

13797563-standard Following the session, more than 30 (leftist dhimmi) students signed up to stage a protest at the high school in the next few weeks, Ali said. “It’s a question of the day and time; we know the place,” the professor said.

West Springfield Superintendent of Schools Russell Johnston said “We take every allegation of bullying very seriously and we absolutely investigate and take appropriate action,” he said.

OHIO: Somali Muslim troublemakers demanding more welfare benefits

Two of the Hussein sisters are seniors at West Springfield High School and a third, Filsan, transferred to a private school last year following a fight in school cafeteria.  Born in Kenya to a family of Somalia immigrants, the sisters arrived in Baltimore in 2000 before moving to Holyoke and finally West Springfield in 2004. 

As young children, they knew nothing about the 9/11 attacks by Islamic terrorists, the United States war in Iraq and Afghanistan or Islam’s broader global struggles, they said.  “We are not related to Saddam Hussein,” Filsan Hussein told the class. (Are you related to Blackhawk Down Somali Muslim terrorists?)


Still, by choosing to wear traditional supremacist Muslim headbags to school, the girls might as well have been radical Muslims in the eyes of many students, they said. 

School officials were aware of the bullying, and made periodic, if ineffectual, attempts to end it, the girls said.  “Their attitude was if the (headbags) are the problem, then don’t wear them,” Najma Hussein said. (Good advice except if you are planning a big CAIR lawsuit)

Odds-e1397344085723 The hostility culminated in a fight in the school cafeteria between one of the sisters, Filsan Hussein, and another girl in March 2012 that led to assault charges being filed against Hussein in Springfield District Court. (Uncivilized Somai Muslims start a lot of  fights) The assault charge was eventually dropped, but related public disruption charges against the other two sisters are still pending, Ali said. 

A videotape of the fight will be a crucial piece of evidence in the case, according to Ali and Springfield lawyer Mickey Harris, who also spoke to the class. Harris said the girls treatment at West Springfield High School raises larger legal issues. (DING DING DING! CAIR L-a-w-s-u-i-t)



Awwww…Dozens of staff laid off at Al-Jazeera America

Considering they don’t even get as many viewers as BNI gets readers everyday, it isn’t a surprise.


THR (h/t Ann L)  Al Jazeera America, which launched last August with nearly 850 employees and 12 news bureaus in the United States, has laid off dozens of employees as part of restructuring. The channel is disbanding its sports unit and scaling back its social-media-driven show The Stream from a daily show to a once-a-week program.

In a note to employees on Friday, the cable news channel’s president, Kate O’Brian, stated that staff reductions were part of a process of restructuring after initial hires were made for the launch.  “In the seven months since launch we have built a channel that it took other networks years to do,” O’Brian wrote. “As you know, that required extensive effort, planning and resources. We always understood we would need considerable resources to meet our goals.”


“This will have an immediate impact on some staff, freelancers, independent contractors, and other project-oriented individuals who have been with us for several months,” O’Brian noted. 

The cable news channel, backed by the royal family of Qatar, replaced Current TV on the channel guide when it launched on Aug. 20 of last year. A significant investment, up to $600 million, was made in Al Jazeera America, sources told THR at the time.

In the months leading up to the channel’s launch, AJA boasted numerous high-profile journalist hires — including Soledad O’Brien, Ali Velshi, John SeigenthalerJoie Chen and Antonio Mora – and pledged to deliver substantive news to differentiate itself from cable news competitors. 


As of December 2013, when the channel struck a carriage agreement with Time Warner Cable, Al Jazeera America was available in almost 55 million homes in the United States. 









CONGRATULATIONS! Victory for Florida as State Senate passes ‘anti-Islam’ textbook bill!

The bill was inspired by the hard work of outraged parents who objected to history textbooks in Florida schools that contained overly extensive chapters about Islam but virtually nothing about all the other religions combined. Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR fought against this bill every step of the way.

Basic CMYK

OCALA Florida’s school districts will be required to review and select textbooks under a bill passed by the Florida Senate.

The Senate on Friday voted 21-19 for the bill which was pushed in response to a backlash over national education standards called Common Core. The bill was also inspired by complaints over a high school world history textbook that some said gave too much attention to Islam.


School boards currently select textbooks from a list drawn up by the Florida Department of Education. Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, said the legislation was needed so that school board members will be accountable to parents and voters.

Opponents complained it would cost districts money to review textbooks. Sen. Geraldine Thompson, D-Orlando, said she was worried the bill would lead to censorship.

NEW YORK CITY: NYPD hunts for a man who allegedly threatened to kill a Muslim in full supremacist attire

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is hunting for a middle-aged white man who allegedly called a Muslim woman a “terrorist” and threatened to kill her aboard a crowded city bus in Queens.


NY Post  The 5-foot-7 suspect became angry at Aya Mohammad when her (head?) bag brushed up against him as they were riding on the Q88 bus at Kissena Boulevard and Horace Harding Expressway in Kew Gardens Hills during the Monday morning rush sources said (sources, what sources?). He allegedly started hurling profanities at Mohammad, screaming, “Fuck you! Fuck your people! You Muslim! You’re a terrorist,” according to sources (sources, what sources?).

Mohammad, who was clad in traditional Muslim garb, allegedly tried to calm him down by pointing out that it was a bumpy ride and the bus was crowded. But the thug only became more aggressive, allegedly pushing the woman and spitting on her, sources said (sources? what sources?). Fed up, Mohammad fired back, calling the hate monger a “piece of shit,” sources said (sources, what sources?). But that only prompted him to clench his fist and allegedly sneer, “I’m not scared to hit you with my fist. I will kill you,” sources said (sources, what sources? CAIR?).

Where are the witnesses? It’s her word against his.


CONNECTICUT ARREST of Muslim man planning to fly drone-like devices packed with explosives into schools and Federal buildings

CT Post  27-year-old El Mehdi Semlali Fahti,Moroccan Muslim national who allegedly plotted to turn a radio-controlled model airplane into a drone-like flying bomb and crash it into a school and a Connecticut federal building was arrested Monday by FBI agents.  (He must have gotten the idea from one  of his Muslim brothers, see below)

Pentagon attack planned 800

Wires and tools were found in the High Ridge Drive apartment where El Mehdi Semlali Fahti, 27, had been living since January with an individual he met while incarcerated in Virginia, according to the FBI.

Fahti told an undercover agent in five recorded conversations that he studied the bomb attack operation for months, and had made a chemical bomb while in high school in Morocco, court documents charge. The recordings additionally claim he could obtain whatever else he needed for his plans in “Southern California on the border.” 

He said funding would come from “secret accounts” comprised of money-laundered cash and drug dealing profits, the FBI said. Fahti does not yet face federal terrorism charges at this time; those could come later when Assistant U.S. Attorney Krishna Patel takes the evidence to a federal grand jury while seeking an indictment.

Fahti is accused of making a false statement, falsely swearing under oath and falsifying declarations to a federal Immigration judge. Those actions allowed him to stay in the U.S. for seven years after his student visa expired and he flunked out of Virginia International University. He was incarcerated in California on a theft charge. He only moved to Bridgeport recently.

In one recording, Fahti says “the more he thinks about the case, he laughs because he cannot believe the judge believed him” in allowing him to seek refuge in the U.S. for political reasons.

DEMOCRAT DHIMMI outrage at FOX News for “smearing” notorious Virginia terrorist mosque and the Virginia State Legislature that honored it

955_largeAlfonso Lopez, an appointee in the corrupt Obama Regime and a democrat candidate for Congress, is asking people to sign a petition against FOX News for exposing the un-American decision by the Virginia State Legislature to honor the Dar al-Hijrah mosque for “outstanding community service.” Service which has brought the Falls Church community such notorious terrorists as Fort Hood’s Major Nidal Hasan, Anwar al-Awlaki who was the al-Qaeda-linked imam for this mosque from 2001-2002, and two of the 9/11 hijackers, not to mention several terrorists currently held at Gitmo.


IPT  Apparently it was Lopez who introduced a resolution to recognize the 30th Anniversary of Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, which the obviously ignorant lawmakers passed.

Criticism of extremist rhetoric and the numerous terror plots that have emanated from Falls Church, Va.’s Dar al-Hijrah Islamic center equals “ignorantly painting all Muslims with the same brush” and “dividing the country using fear and hate,” a Virginia state legislator said. Alfonso Lopez, a Democratic candidate for Congress, slammed Fox News host Eric Bolling for denouncing Lopez’s resolution honoring the 30th anniversary of the controversial Virginia mosque.

Bolling criticized the resolution because of Dar al-Hijrah’s ties to American-born al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and convicted Fort. Hood shooter Nidal Hassan during a March 19 broadcast.


“For Fox News to smear an important community institution by ignorantly painting all Muslims with the same brush is reprehensible,” Lopez wrote on his Facebook page and in a post on the Daily Kos. “At its core, this is a rightwing media attack on the faith and religious freedom of hard-working patriotic Americans.”

Lopez created a petition attacking the “right-wing smears of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center” in response to the criticisms from Fox and others. He did not respond to a request for comment from the Investigative Project on Terrorism.


The resolution, which passed the Virginia General Assembly March 3, praised the mosque for “promot[ing] cooperation, tolerance and mutual understanding among different faiths.” Dar al-Hijrah may engage in inter-faith outreach but it also has a history of radical preaching, and attracting radical jihadists who prayed there. Lopez also downplayed the mosque’s established connections with terrorism and extremist rhetoric by playing up the charitable activities and interfaith activities it engages in under the rubric of dawah (Muslim evangelism).

U.S. Department of Homeland Security reports obtained by the IPT have noted that the mosque “has been under numerous investigations for financing and [providing] aid and comfort to bad organizations and members” and have called it a “front for Hamas operatives in U.S.”


Among those bad members, Awlaki served as an imam at Dar al-Hijrah before leaving the United States. Two 9/11 hijackers attended services there, as did Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan and terrorist financier Abdurrahman AlamoudiThe Washington Post noted in 2011 that “almost no other mosque in the country has been linked to so many cases of alleged terrorism.”

If you feel like signing anything, send an email to FOX News for putting the spotlight on this travesty.

Shaker Elsayed, who is the imam of Dar Al-Hijrah mosque and Islamic Center, addresses Ethiopian Muslims living in the United States at T.C. Williams High School. In his speech he implores Ethiopian Muslims living in America to arm themselves for jihad.


Elsyaed has had questionable ties with terrorists.  Shaker Elsayed (born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1951) is a dual citizen of Egypt and the US, and has been the Imam of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, since June 1, 2005. Elsayed also served as an unofficial spokesman for the family of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was convicted of plotting to assassinate President Bush. Abu Ali worshipped at Dar al-Hijrah.

THE DAILY CALLER The controversial imam of a prominent mosque in Arlington, Va., has urged immigrant Muslims in the United States to wage war for Islam. ‘The enemies of Allah are lining up. The question for us is, are we lining [up] or are we afraid because they may call us terrorists?’ Shaker Elsayed told a crowd of Ethiopian Muslims during a lecture at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va.

‘Let me give you the good news: they are already calling us terrorists anyway. Whether you sitting at home, watching TV, drinking coffee, sleeping or playing with your kids, you are a terrorist because you are a Muslim. ‘Muslim men when it is a price to pay, they are first in line. … They are the first in the community-service line. They are the first in jihad line,’ he declared to applause.


DEARBORNISTAN: Muslim parents outraged over school flyers promoting Easter Egg Hunt

cadburistanBut, but but….don’t they know that Cadbury chocolate maker now has sharia-compliant, halal-certified Easter eggs?


Detroit Free Press  Muslim parents are concerned about public schools in Dearborn handing out flyers to all students advertising an Easter egg hunt, saying it violates the principle of church and state separation.

A flyer headlined “Eggstravaganza!” was given to students this week at three elementary schools in the Dearborn Public Schools district, which has a substantial number of Muslim students. The flyer described an April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn featuring an egg hunt, relay race, and egg toss. It asked students to RSVP “to secure your free spot” and included images of eggs and a bunny.


“It really bothered my two kids,” said parent Majed Moughni, who is Muslim and has two children, ages 7 and 9, in Dearborn elementary schools. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.’”

Moughni said he’s concerned about “using school teachers paid by public funds … to pass out these flyers that are being distributed by a church. I think that’s a serious violation of separation of church and state.”

David Mustonen, spokesman for Dearborn Public Schools, did not respond Thursday to several requests by the Free Press for comment. The pastor of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church defended the flyer, saying it was approved for distribution by Dearborn Public Schools and is not promoting a religious event.

Halal-Certified Easter Eggs

Halal-Certified Easter Eggs

“It’s designed to be an opportunity to invite the community to come for a day of activity,” said Pastor Neeta Nichols of Cherry Hill. “There is not a religious component to this event.”

“Part of our ministry in Dearborn is to invite the community to let them know we’re here,” she added. “We’re offering various kinds of programming, fun opportunities, so what we can be engaged with the community.” But Moughni and others are worried that churches are trying to convert their youth through the Dearborn schools. Moughni said his children received flyers for Halloween events at another church last year.

And in recent years, other Muslim parents have complained about what they say are attempts to convert their children. The Conquerors, a Grandville-based group of Christian athletes who display feats of strength to spread the message of Jesus, have performed in Dearborn schools, drawing some concern. In 2009, there was controversy over an assistant wrestling coach who some parents said was trying to convert Muslim wrestlers, which the coach denied.

Moughni said he greatly respects Christianity, but believes that schools should not promote events related to religious holidays. He said he would oppose flyers that promoted events at mosques as well.

Part of the debate centers around whether Easter is entirely a religious holiday, or one that combines Christian and Western cultural traditions such as the Easter bunny and eggs. Greg Lipper, senior litigation counsel at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said he has some concerns about the flyer since the event is being held at a church.

“It would be one thing if this were an Easter egg hunt in an otherwise secular setting,” say, the White House Easter egg hunt, he said. “But this invitation was for an Easter egg hunt at a Christian church — and so the event has much clearer religious connotations. Context matters.”


Lipper added that the legality of flyer distribution in schools depends on whether the district is favoring some institutions over others. Schools can’t favor one religion, he said.

“The younger the children, the greater the concern,” Lipper said. “Children are more impressionable than adults, and elementary schoolchildren are more impressionable than any other students. And so the school district has to be especially careful about appearing to endorse … a particular religion.”





ATTENTION all homegrown jihadists!

Now there’s a Muslim Legal Fund helping budding jihadists in America avoid FBI informants.




Thanks to Barack Hussein Obama, the most effective methods of counter-terrorism training have been scrapped. I guess informants are all they have left.

On a happier note, ‘No NSA reform can fix the Muslim surveillance complex in America, because Muslims likely make up the bulk of US domestic spy targets.’


Better oversight of the sprawling American national security apparatus may finally be coming: President Obama and the House Intelligence Committee unveiled plans this week to reduce bulk collection of telephone records. But for those living in so-called “suspect communities” like Muslim Americans, the days of living on the receiving end of excessive spying won’t end there. READ MORE
