Rick Wiles: 'Islam Must Be Eliminated From The Face Of The Earth, Stomped Out Like Cockroaches'

“Trunews” host Rick Wiles reacted to the massacre of Pakistani children and educators in Peshawar this week by claiming that “Islam has to be eradicated.”

“How many innocent people must die until the world vomits out Islam? Folks, it must be eliminated,” he said. “Islam must be eliminated from the face of the earth, it must be stomped out like cockroaches, it is a religion from Hell, everywhere Muslims go there is bloodshed and violence.”

Wiles said that the world will only “get fed up with Islam and eradicate it like a virus” following a terrorist attack: “At some point the world will have to obliterate, with nuclear weapons, Mecca and Medina. It’s coming to that point, just watch, just wait, at some point the Muslims are going to get their hands on nuclear weapons and destroy Western cities and when tens of millions of people die perhaps the outrage will be so great at that point that the world will nuke Mecca and Medina and get rid of Islam.”

Wiles maintained that as Islam spreads “like a virus, like a cancer throughout the whole world,” the U.S. should take immediate action to kick Muslims “out of our country.”

Texas School Board Let Anti-Muslim Group Pressure Publishers To Rewrite Religion Textbooks

Last month, the Texas State Board of Education approved a set of social studies textbooks after some disputes between Christian Right members of the board and scholars who had reviewed the texts. Although experts recruited by the Texas Freedom Network to review the proposed texts managed to convince textbook companies to remove some objectionable material, some claims demanded by conservative members of the board remained, including assertions that Moses was a direct influence on the founding of the U.S.

In an article for Religion Dispatches today, one of TFN’s reviewers, David R. Brockman, who teaches religious studies at Southern Methodist University, writes about his experience as a textbook reviewer and his frustrations with the board’s process for reviewing curricula on world religions. “The curriculum standards and the adoption process in Texas don’t simply lack balanced and accurate coverage of the world’s religions; they work against it,” he writes. “And while textbook publishers generally struggle against this tide, they are sometimes dragged along with it.”

In one example, Brockman writes that the Christian Right bloc on the school board “insisted that the publishers address” a last-minute set of comments submitted by Truth in Texas Textbooks, a group associated with the anti-Muslim organization ACT! for America, whose reviewers, with one exception, had no “relevant social studies credentials” and demanded that the textbooks include hostile and sometimes false comments about Islam. Although the textbook companies mostly refused TTT’s requests (many with clear exasperation), a few were successful, including a redefinition of the word “jihad”:

The problem is that, in 2014 at least, the conservative majority on the SBOE quite clearly gave comments from ideologically-driven pressure groups (such as Texas Eagle Forum and Texas Values Action) greater weight than comments from credentialed field specialists (such as myself and my fellow reviewers).

A mere two weeks before the SBOE was to take its final vote on the textbooks, and long after other public groups had filed their comments, Truth in Texas Textbooks (TTT), which has allies on the SBOE, presented their reviews—469 pages of material. Two days before the final adoption vote was to take place, Christian Right members of the SBOE made much of the TTT criticisms and insisted that publishers address them.

To judge from its website, the only TTT reviewer with relevant social studies credentials was a professor of Holocaust Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas. However, he reviewed only one world history textbook, and quite appropriately restricted his comments to his areas of expertise.

The other reviewers on TTT’s list appear to have no academic credentials in history, geography, economics, or religious studies (though they do include a Ph.D. in “educational leadership,” and a professor of foreign languages). Despite a lack of pertinent credentials, the TTT reviewers weighed in on a wide range of topics, including prehistory, climate change, economics, political science, and U.S. government.

But they directed special vitriol at the alleged “dangers” posed by Islam. One reviewer wrote of Islam’s “threat to the Western world,” while another lumped Muslims together with communists and socialists commenting, bizarrely, that “The greatest fear for a communist, a socialist or a Muslim is Truth.”

Other TTT comments were just plain false: “Islam is spread by the sword while monotheistic religions are not.”

(Try telling that to an Aztec or Inca—not to mention the fact that Islam is a “monotheistic religion.”)

Yet despite TTT’s lack of credentials and the obviously biased and tendentious nature of their critiques, conservative SBOE members insisted that publishers give them the same level of attention they gave comments from credentialed scholars.

Sadly, in some cases, publishers actually changed their text to suit TTT, as when Pearson Learning ( see page 16) removed from its world history text the factually correct statement that jihad “is most frequently used [by Muslims] to describe an inner struggle in God’s service.” In its place Pearson inserted more ambiguous wording: “For some Muslims, [jihad] means a struggle against one’s evil inclinations. For other Muslims, it refers to a struggle or violent holy war to defend or spread Islam.”

While this change may please TTT and other anti-Islam groups, it deprives students of the important fact that the “holy war” interpretation of jihad is held by only a small minority in the Muslim community today.

Geller: Obama Imposing Islamic Jizya Tax On Non-Muslim Americans

Anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller said last week that the Obama administration’s actions on behalf of civil rights for Muslim Americans amount to the imposition of the jizya, a tax on non-Muslims.

In an interview with Rick Wiles of “TruNews,” Geller fumed about a New Jersey town’s $7.75 million settlement with an Islamic group that sued after the township denied its request to build a mosque, a decision that a judge ruled [PDF] was made in part as a result of “anti-Muslim prejudice.”​

While the Brennan Center for Justice and the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund represented the Islamic center in the lawsuit, Geller blamed the Department of Justice, which according to one of the center’s attorneys had opened an investigation into the case.

“That’s the jizya, that’s the poll tax we see all through Islamic history imposed upon Christians and Jews living under Islamic law,” she said of the settlement, accusing the Department of Justice of becoming the “de facto legal arm of many of these Muslim Brotherhood groups in the country.”

Later in the broadcast, Geller claimed that there is “no question” that America has been “overthrown” by progressives who hate all things good, ushering in “terrible” and “catastrophic” consequences for the country.

“The coup is complete, this is the left and this is the war that they’ve had,” Geller said. “The coup is complete, the left’s war on morality, on the good, is complete.”

She said President Obama’s re-election victory in 2012 represented the fulfillment of the left’s anti-American coup and lashed out at the voters who voted for him:

We have absolutely crossed the line. We’ve crossed the threshold. I think the coup was complete when the American people chose to be bamboozled after the second term. I wrote the Obama book, ‘The Post-American Presidency: The Obama’s Administration’s War on America,’ in 2009, but I understood how he was elected, I understood the love affair. It was unforgiveable, it was unforgivable after Benghazi, it was unforgivable.

Gohmert: National Cathedral Muslim Prayer Service Timed To 'Terrorist' Anniversary

Shortly after last month’s elections, conservative pundit David Horowitz gathered a variety of anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim activists, including a handful of members of Congress and far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders, at his annual retreat at a beach resort in Florida.

It appears that Wilders formed a strong connection with Rep. Louie Gohmert who, after Wilders’ speech to the event, stood to tell the Dutch visitor about the Muslim prayer service that had been recently held in the National Cathedral in Washington. Gohmert asserted that the service was purposefully timed by “these terrorists” to mark the hundredth anniversary of a fatwa issued by the Ottoman caliph in the early days of World War I.

“Yesterday, for the first time, Friday Muslim prayers were conducted in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.,” Gohmert said. “And what the Episcopal Church didn’t realize and what you know better than most anyone, anniversaries are a big deal to these terrorists and it’s the hundredth — I’d like to say it’s the thousandth, but it was the hundredth anniversary —November 14, 1914, when the last caliph of the Ottoman Empire, the last one, issued a fatwa that started the murder spree that began with young girls being raped and then crucified. So anyway, we see what’s happening here, but hardly a peep about yesterday.”

Wilders responded by asking the audience to stand and applaud Gohmert and Rep. Michele Bachmann for having “the guts to talk about the issue.”

The exchange came after a speech in which Wilders gave his standard calls for Western countries to “stop all immigration from Islamic countries,” ban the building of mosques and “close down all Islamic schools.”

“Islam is evil,” he told the enthusiastic crowd. “We must shout this out so loud that even President Obama and all the other cowards in politics all over the West will hear it.”

Robert Knight: Muslim Prayer Service Turned National Cathedral Into 'Victory' Mosque

Washington Times columnist Robert Knight is bringing back the right-wing “victory mosque” meme, this time claiming that a Muslim prayer service held at the National Cathedral in Washington sends a message “of weakness” to American Muslims who “see it as akin to raising their flag over a conquered enemy.”

Knight wrote in his column Friday:

At the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, the Episcopal Church announced that the historic edifice was to host its first Muslim service on Friday. That's right. The symbol of America's Christian heritage in the nation's capital, which earlier turned the nave into a yoga center, was to ring with homages to Allah.

Planners call it "a powerful symbolic gesture," and hope it will inspire more religious tolerance around the world. You know, like those "coexist" bumper stickers that imply all religions are equally intolerant and need to get, like, tolerant.

The cathedral is, indeed, sending a powerful message — of weakness. Many Muslims will see it as akin to raising their flag over a conquered enemy. Ever since Muhammad launched jihad in the 7th century, victorious Muslims have made a point of erecting mosques on the site of synagogues or churches, or converting grand church buildings into mosques, such as the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople (now Istanbul).

This is one reason many people were apoplectic when plans were announced for a mosque near ground zero in New York, the site of Muslim militants' greatest victory over the Great Satan America.

In the brave new world of tolerance, only Christians and sometimes Jews are told to be silent, to celebrate sin, or even to host worship of what Christians and Jews for centuries have regarded as a false god.

Jerry Boykin: 'Persian' Valerie Jarrett Convincing Obama To Let Iran Have A Nuclear Weapon

Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin told the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney in an interview last week that he believes President Obama is going to cut a deal with Iran allowing the country to have a nuclear weapon on the advice of his adviser Valerie Jarrett because she “is Persian, she’s an Iranian.”

“I think the administration has essentially, and probably because of the advice of Valerie Jarrett — who is Persian, she’s an Iranian — I think that because of her influence that the president has made some very bad decisions with regards for support for the Iranian nuclear program,” he said.

Jarrett was born in Iran to American parents — her father ran a hospital there — and left when she was five years old.

Boykin and Gaffney also discussed the alleged “penetration” of the U.S. government by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Gaffney, who helped start the right-wing smear campaign against Hillary Clinton aide Human Abedin, asked Boykin, “What is the state of the penetration of our government, not just by the Huma Abedins and the Hesham Islams of the world, but more broadly as evidence of the civilization jihad that’s being waged against us by the Muslim Brotherhood especially?”

Boykin responded by asserting that after 9/11, counterterrorism authorities hired a large number of Arabic translators, “a large percentage” of whom “actually wound up working for the other side.”

He went on to lament what he called “the total infiltration of the intelligence community” by people he believes to be Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood agents, including the counterterrorism chief responsible for many of the targeted killings of Al Qaeda officials, reportedly a Muslim convert. He also repeated the “strong rumors” that CIA director John Brennan has converted to Islam.

“What we do know is that there are penetrations at every level of our government, to include homeland security, to include the military, to include the intelligence community, to include the Congress,” he said. “There are penetrations by nefarious elements, by people that are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, by people who are associated with Al Qaeda. And by the way, Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda are really all the same thing.”

“And the Islamic State and Boko Haram and the rest of them,” Gaffney added. “And the Iranians, too, with their differences on different points of theology, are very much part of this Sharia enterprise and the global jihad to impose it.”

Brigitte Gabriel: 'No Chance' Of Muslim Americans 'Blending In' To U.S.

Anti-Muslim activist Brigitte Gabriel told Newsmax host Dennis Michael Lynch last week that there is “no chance” of American Muslims ever “blending in” with U.S. society.

In an interview on Friday, Lynch told Gabriel that he had recently traveled to Dearborn, Michigan, and “did not see all but maybe one or two homes with an American flag waving outside” and at one point stopped to ask for directions and was ignored.

“Why is it that the Muslim community is not blending in with the rest of American society?” he asked.

“Because this is what they are being told in mosques across the United States,” Gabriel responded, claiming that American mosques are “instructing their people not to shake hands on Christmas or Easter or wish the Americans a happy holiday.”

“Is there any chance that the Muslim community will ever turn it around?” Lynch asked.

“No,” Gabriel responded, “there is no chance, we are seeing a reverse, actually, instead of a blending in, instead of assimilation.”

Kamal Saleem: US May Fall To Islamic Rule By 2020

Kamal Saleem, a phony ex-terrorist who believes Hillary Clinton, U.S. military generals and President Obama’s babysitter are plotting to use immigration reform and abortion rights to impose Islamic law on the U.S., is out with a new book co-written with Family Research Council official Jerry Boykin, titled “The Coalition.”

Saleem spoke with Boykin and FRC president Tony Perkins yesterday on “Washington Watch” about the book and the coming Islamic takeover of America.

Unfortunately, Perkins didn’t ask Saleem about his recent claim that Obama managed to simultaneously attend mosque services in Washington, D.C., and vacation in Hawaii on Christmas Day.

Saleem did however speak about Seven Mountains theology, or the belief that conservative Christians need to control the seven main spheres of societal influence, citing the work of Os Hillman, whom he refered to as “O.S. Hill.” Saleem said that he fears radical Islamists have “infiltrated” America’s “seven spheres of influence,” pointing to an interfaith service at the National Cathedral as proof that the “Chrislamic church” is “destroying our civilization from within.”

He added that America is experiencing what he calls the “Swedish syndrome.” In that country, he said, “when the Islamists came to takeover they started prying on the political leadership” until eventually the Swedish “leadership started protecting them and one day he came to protect them and led their movement over there so now it’s led by the politician of Sweden and the Muslims are taking over the civilization. Same thing is happening here in the United States.”

If the Islamist plot to take over America isn’t turned back, Saleem explained, “America will be fallen” by 2020.

Rick Perry, Ron Johnson And Jeff Sessions To Join Anti-Muslim Activists At Florida Beach Resort Confab

FrontPageMag editor and increasingly unhinged anti-Obama yeller David Horowitz is hosting his annual “Restoration Weekend” for anti-Muslim activists at a beach resort in Florida this month. This year, Horowitz has recruited an impressive slate of Republican politicians, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, Oklahoma Rep. Jim Bridenstine to partake in the event’s offerings of golf, spa treatments, and Muslim-bashing.

Joining the GOP politicians at the Palm Beach weekend will be anti-Muslim activists including the Family Research Council’s Jerry BoykinJihadWatch’s Robert SpencerNational Review columnist Andrew McCarthy and, as Horowitz announced this weekend on Newsmax, far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders.

Conservative pundits Ann Coulter, Michael Reagan and Ben Shapiro will also be at the event, according to its website, along with FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe, Heritage Foundation economics chief Stephen Moore and Wall Street Journal editorial board member Kimberly Strassel.

Horowitz organizes and funds the annual Restoration Weekend through his David Horowitz Freedom Center — attendees pay between $1,750 and $20,000, but the group’s most recent available tax return shows the 2012 event didn’t even break even. At past events, Horowitz has attracted GOP luminaries including Sen. Ted Cruz, former Sen. Jim DeMint, Rep. Steve King and Rep. Michele Bachmann. All apparently undeterred by their host’s record of anti-Muslim extremism, including accusing former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and Republican anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist (whose wife is Muslim) of being secret Muslim Brotherhood agents.

In just the past year, Horowitz’s commentary has moved even further to the fringe. As the Justice Department launched an investigation of the shooting of an unarmed black teen in Ferguson, Missouri, this summer, Horowitz accused Attorney General Eric Holder of leading a black “lynch mob.” A day earlier, Horowitz said he was “sure” President Obama was secretly a Muslim because “he’s a pretend Christian in the same way he’s a pretend American.”

Such anti-Obama conspiracy theories have a welcome place at Horowitz’s Restoration Weekends. At last year’s event, for instance, Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona agreed with Robert Spencer’s statement that President Obama is either a secret Muslim or just acting like one:

Wilders, who has spoken at past Horowitz-affiliated events, including at least one Restoration Weekend, is currently on a U.S. tour that included lunch at the Capitol with Bachmann. Wilders, one of the most fiercely anti-Islam voices in Europe has compared the Quran to Mein Kampf and this year lost some prominent members of his own party when he targeted Moroccans living in the Netherlands to stir up support before the European elections.

Laurie Roth: 'Gays, Islamics And Illegal Aliens' Are Destroying America With Obama's Help

Following her unintentionally hilarious Ebola rant, right-wing talk show host Laurie Roth came out yesterday with a new column blasting “the extraordinary rights of gays, Islamics, and illegal aliens.”

After warning about the “evil” and tyrannical LGBT rights movement, Roth accused “the Islamic in-your-face activist groups [who] play the persecuted victim card” of “slamming their religion down our children's throats throughout Common Core school curriculum and the media.”

Roth saved her fiercest criticism for immigrants, warning that they “bring in endless diseases, drugs, terrorists, and danger to America” as “terrorists and cartel members are going back and forth across the border making billions.”

“With this last planned and orchestrated entourage of tens of thousands of illegal aliens at the hands of Obama, buses were shipped in the cover of darkness to cities all across America. Cities and schools have been lined with tattoo covered adult criminals, drug dealers, and terrorists masquerading as children,” she wrote. “We are seeing dangerous diseases spread to our children in public schools all across America and some are already dying from these viruses.”

Obama and his progressive-transformationalists have always targeted the desires of groups and turned those into mountain-size needs that only Obama and progressives/Democrat politicians can fill. They cannot function in a country that is free and standing on the Constitution and Holy Bible for direction. Obama and the progressives/Democrats must have a nation of dependent and obedient "Stepford wives."

We have heard now for many years about the extraordinary rights of gays, Islamics, and illegal aliens. Let us look for a minute at these "special" groups of people. Regarding the gay rights movement...Now, even our compromised Supreme Court has voted against our states' rights, how God Himself defines marriage in the Holy Bible, and what most Americans want – marriage between a man and a woman.

Marriage has been neutered, and pastors and the media are to shut up about it. The new landscape has so much variety to its evil. Children are to be raised by two women, two men, or a group of women and men. The same men and women can change their sex the next weekend. Then, there are those who even marry the neighborhood or themselves.



How many times has Obama said that ISIS and Al-Qaeda are not Islamic, when the truth is they are boldly and completely Islamic, obeying the jihad calling of Muhammad? As usual, the Islamic in-your-face activist groups play the persecuted victim card. We are all violating them and their speech. We are to notice nothing and say nothing about Islam re-writing their real history and slamming their religion down our children's throats throughout Common Core school curriculum and the media. Business owners are to have no rights but to submit 100% of the time to the endless rights of Islamic workers who demand a multitude of things while suing if they don't get their way and playing the martyr to perfection.

Illegal aliens...oh, yes, that is now hate speech. They are undocumented workers or immigrants...never mind that they knowingly break our laws, violate our borders, bring in endless diseases, drugs, terrorists, and danger to America. With this last planned and orchestrated entourage of tens of thousands of illegal aliens at the hands of Obama, buses were shipped in the cover of darkness to cities all across America. Cities and schools have been lined with tattoo covered adult criminals, drug dealers, and terrorists masquerading as children. Obama has enabled his illegal and criminal group to soar by now defining a child up to age 23.

We are seeing dangerous diseases spread to our children in public schools all across America and some are already dying from these viruses, while Obama and the progressive Democrats scream about their rights. What rights? They shouldn't be here. Our children are getting sick and dying. Terrorists and cartel members are going back and forth across the border making billions, while we are insulted and told we hate Hispanics, children, and poor people. The cherry on top for Obama and the progressive left is a hoped for numb-brained voter block.

Larry Pratt Vows To Give An Award To Gun Range Owner Who Banned Muslims

Last month, an Arkansas gun range owner named Jan Morgan got some national attention when she declared her business a “Muslim free zone,” writing on her website, “This is more than enough loss of life on my home soil at the hands of muslims to substantiate my position that muslims can and will follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.”

What many news reports missed is that Morgan is not just the owner of a single shooting range, but a national gun activist who has spoken at multiple events for the “religious liberty” group Liberty Counsel as well as Tea Party gatherings and last month’s misnamed “Two Million Bikers” rally against President Obama.

And Morgan has some friends in high places in the gun lobby. In an interview with Arizona-based radio host Josh Bernstein this week, Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt praised Morgan, saying that she was “on very sound ground” with her Muslim ban.

“I know there will be a lot of people that will be outraged at that, but we don’t facilitate murderers and if you read the Quran, it’s an instruction to go kill people, lots of them,” Pratt said. “And there are Muslims that don’t buy into that, well, how do I know which one you are?”

All of which reminded Pratt that he had been meaning to start giving out a Gun Owners of America award and Morgan “ought to get it.”

Jerry Boykin: 'Americans Need to Have More Babies' To Counteract Muslim Population

In a conference call this week with E.W. Jackson, Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin warned that to counteract the population growth of America’s Muslim minority, “Americans need to have more babies and populate this country with red-blooded patriotic Americans.”

Fearing that America would soon go the way of a Europe that he claimed is “hopelessly lost” to Muslim population growth, Boykin insisted that “Americans” (among whom he evidently doesn’t include Muslim-Americans) must increase the average birth rate to supersede that of the country’s less-than-one-percent Muslim minority. “It is a very serious issue, which is why Americans need to have more babies and populate this country with red-blooded patriotic Americans,” he said.

Boykin also claimed that President Obama’s “identity is more with Islam than with anything else,” citing myths about the president’s the so-called “apology tour” in 2009 and his supposed education in a “madrassa.”

“And I think that all goes back to his roots, to the fact that he was raised in an Islamic environment,” he said. “I think he went to a madrassa for, it’s undetermined, but at least five years of his life. I think that’s his comfort zone. And I think he was in Jeremiah Wright’s church as a matter of convenience, but his identity is more with Islam than with anything else.”

In reality, Obama attended a Catholic school and a secular public school in Indonesia.

RNC Committeewoman Warns Muslim Refugees Waging 'Stealth Jihad' Against America

RNC committeewoman Tamara Scott, who also runs the Iowa state chapter of Concerned Women for America and works with the influential group The Family Leader, spent a good part of her weekly radio program on Wednesday interviewing Leo Hohmann, a WorldNetDaily reporter who wrote an unhinged article last month about how a plan to offer asylum to Syrian refugees is in fact part of a “stealth jihad” to take over America.

Scott was quite impressed by Hohmann’s article, asking him, “So if I put on my Facebook… ‘Leo Hohman reveals stealth jihad with thousands of Muslims being brought into the U.S. under refugee resettlement program, receiving welfare, Medicaid and other taxpayer moneys while refusing to assimilate to American culture,’ that’s not an understandment?”

“No,” Hohmann assured her.

Later in the interview, Hohmann explained the difficulty he has in his “reporting” because “if you’re not listening carefully or if you come to this story from a different worldview, it can sound like we’re being racist or somehow bigoted.” But, he explained, he isn’t being bigoted because Islam is not a religion and Muslim-Americans are lying about their plan to become the majority in America and institute Sharia law.

“The problem is, Leo, is that we call it a religion, but you and I both know that it’s a political system and a military system, not just a religion, so that’s part of the danger,” Scott said of Islam later in the interview.

She then went on to praise Michele Bachmann’s furious search for Muslim Brotherhood agents in the U.S. government, which she implied was somehow precient of the 2012 attack on U.S. officials in Benghazi.

GOP Congressional Candidate Refuses To Debate At 'Suspect Venue' Of Islamic Community Center

Corrected

Jim Galloway at the Atlanta Journal Constitution offers a roundup of the drama surrounding a congressional debate this week between Democratic Rep. John Barrow of Georgia and his Republican challenger Rick Allen, which included a last-minute venue change because Allen refused to debate at the “suspect venue” of an Augusta-area Islamic community center.

The debate, sponsored by the Islamic Society of Augusta in conjunction with a local newspaper, was scheduled to take place in the 800-seat community center, until Allen’s campaign refused to go there, calling it a “suspect venue” and attacking Barrow for “standing shoulder to shoulder” with a “Muslim cleric” (the man organizing the event was actually a doctor).

So, Galloway explains, the debate was moved to a smaller location (to the annoyance of some would-be attendees who were turned away), but the drama didn’t end there, as the chair of the Columbia County GOP “made every attempt to avoid” the 73-year-old Egyptian-American doctor who had arranged the debate and refused to shake his hand. This, Galeas later explained, was not because of the doctor’s religion but because he specializes in high-risk pregnancies, which can sometimes end in abortion.

The players were U.S. Rep. John Barrow, the Augusta Democrat, and Republican challenger Rick Allen, a local businessman. The only thing that separated the two candidates was air, a few issues, and a stenciled, paper sign denoting the sponsor of the event: The Islamic Society of Augusta.

…But the venue was changed from the 800-seat Islamic Community Center to a much smaller government venue.

One of the two parties involved was uncomfortable in such a place of worship, Augusta Chronicle president Dana Atkins explained to local talk radio host Austin Rhodes of WGAC (580AM). “It was the Rick Allen campaign headquarters,” Atkins said, when pressed.

“Barrow’s obviously close association with the head of the Islamic Center is his affair, but it does make this a suspect venue for us,” is the line that stood out in an Allen campaign press release.

Nonetheless, the debate limped forward. Then came Saturday afternoon, and — just as the crowd began gathering — the Hand Shake Incident.

The event organizer was 73-year-old Dr. [Hossam] Fadel, an Egyptian-American and now-retired physician recruited to Augusta in 1975 by the Medical College of Georgia. Also in the room was Dewey Galeas, chairman of the Columbia County GOP.

“I made every attempt to avoid the man. I walked by (Fadel), acknowledged him, thanked him for his hospitality, and then I walked on,” Galeas later said.

Fadel pursued and offered Galeas his hand. The county GOP chairman refused. Galeas said it wasn’t Fadel’s Muslim religion that motivated the slight, but his own “deep religious conviction over abortion.”

To explain: Fadel was brought to Augusta to establish a new specialty at the medical school called maternal fetal medicine. It concerns the management of high-risk pregnancies, which do not always end well.

Fadel declined to speak of the incident, except to say that Galeas later emailed him an apology, which he has accepted.

….

But it was the final question that was the likely focus of the crowd: How will you help other members of Congress understand that not all Muslims are terrorists?

“I think I do it by example, by treating every law-abiding citizen alike. That’s what the Framers intended. That’s what we should do,” Barrow said, reminding the audience that it wasn’t his idea to move the debate.

“I think that John Barrow should be asked the question, ‘Why he insisted that the debate be in the Islamic Center?’” Allen replied. “The idea behind this is, we want to make everybody feel welcome at every facility, okay?”

As for the tension between Muslims and their fellow Americans, Allen had this recommendation: “What I want, from everyone who is a citizen in this country, is to speak out – and to speak out heartily – against [ISIS]. That’s what I want to see from every religion. We must stop this radicalism,” he said.

The Islamic Society of Augusta has, in fact, already done so.

Correction: This post originally misstated the politician who reportedly refused to shake the event organizer's hand. It was Columbia County GOP chairmain Dewey Galeas, not Rick Allen.

Erik Rush: Might Be Time To Bring Back Internment Camps For Muslims

WorldNetDaily columnist Erik Rush, who believes most journalists should be thrown in jail, today demands that the U.S. government crack down on Muslim foreign nationals living in the country following the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma.

In a column titled “Is It Time To Deport, Intern Foreign Muslims?,” Rush claims that all Muslims are either terrorists or terrorist-sympathizers who must be hounded like Japanese-Americans during World War II.

“We deported, expelled and interned foreign nationals and naturalized citizens for a whole lot less during World War II, and I would certainly call for the deportation or expulsion of all Muslim foreign nationals at this juncture,” he writes.

In an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” last weekend, President Barack Obama reiterated his assertion that America is not at war with Islam, that “Islam preaches peace” and that the majority of Muslims are peaceful.

I would submit that the absence of demonstrable violence does not necessarily constitute being “peaceful.” In the years since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America by militant Muslims, the question of just who and where these “peaceful” Muslims are has been discussed endlessly. Americans have asked the question – time and again – why the so-called “peaceful Muslims” we hear so much about are reticent to disavow the actions of militant Muslims.

I believe the answer to that question has become clear. Contrary to the contentions of the political left, it would appear that the majority of Muslims worldwide are more than willing to rationalize the actions of those the Western press dubs “militant Muslims” as that of defending Islam or the so-called rights of Muslims. The history of Islam certainly bears this out, as does the Quran, which expressly calls for violence – and beheadings in particular – in the advance of Islam.



In the face of its surreal and manifestly treasonous deportment, the Obama administration is also set to announce sweeping new restrictions on racial and religious profiling in federal investigations, including those involving matters of national security. This of course comes in the midst of heightened concerns of Islamic militant groups executing a terror attack on U.S. soil. In fact, Islamist militant leaders abroad have called for such attacks, just as they called weeks ago for lone-wolf attacks and beheadings of Americans on American soil.

We deported, expelled and interned foreign nationals and naturalized citizens for a whole lot less during World War II, and I would certainly call for the deportation or expulsion of all Muslim foreign nationals at this juncture.

Rick Wiles: Beheadings Will Occur 'Every Week In America' Thanks To Secret Islamic Code

The beheading of an Oklahoma woman is only beginning of a larger Muslim plot to kill Americans, according to “Trunews” host Rick Wiles. On his End Times radio show yesterday, Wiles said that “beheadings are the new norm in America and the Muslims know it,” arguing that more beheadings will take place because there has been “no outrage” over the attack in Oklahoma.

“Within a short time there will be a beheading every week in America,” he predicted.

Wiles of course, claims that he predicted the September beheading over a decade ago: “I saw this day coming in 1998 after the Lord gave me a vision of judgment in America. The Holy Spirit told me in the summer of 1998 that there will be a day in America that the imams of this country will issue a secret code to jihad and every obedient Muslim will know that he or she is obligated to carry out jihad that day and kill Americans.”

He then read from his 1998 prophetic vision, which did not include any mention of beheadings but did mention bombings, missile strikes, poisonings and biological attacks.

Gina Miller: Islamist-Gay Plot Destroying America

BarbWire content editor Gina Miller is angry that James Foley’s family asked anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller to pull advertisements in New York that featured images of Foley’s execution, writing that Foley’s family are “the ones who are blasting her ads as they slavishly bow to the tenets of Muslim Sharia law.”

Miller claims extremist groups like ISIS are the true representatives of Islam, which she describes as “a satanic, militant-political ideology couched in a religion.” She adds that “Barack Obama (or whatever his name is)” has facilitated “Muslim Brotherhood operatives into his administration.”

Not only is Obama leaving “our southern border wide open to illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists,” according to Miller, but he is also bringing down the U.S. as he “decimates our military and floods it with ‘out and proud’ homosexual deviants.”

The ads are right on the money. They’re simple, common-sense declarations of the truth of what we face with hell-born Muslim conquest around the world. However, the deluded adherents to “political correctness” among us refuse to tell the truth about Islamic jihad, and instead, attack those of us who do. Rather than acknowledge the dangerous reality we face in demon-possessed Islamic drones who are hell-bent on spreading the bloody cancer of Islam, they revile the watchmen on the wall who warn of the imminent threat of this evil movement.



We see what the Muslims are doing in our nation and around the world. We see the Muslim sympathizer in the White House (who has allowed Muslim Brotherhood operatives into his administration) downplay Islamic terror in our nation, mislabeling the jihadi terror attack at Fort Hood as “workplace violence.” We have seen Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) arm and finance Islamists in the Middle East. We have seen him leave our southern border wide open to illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists. We have seen him allow our Ambassador and others to be murdered by Islamists in Benghazi. We have seen him purge our military and intelligence communities of rational reference to Islamic dangers and forbid them from monitoring mosques—all this while he decimates our military and floods it with “out and proud” homosexual deviants.

We have watched Obama set the Middle East on fire for the Islamists he favors over the ones he doesn’t. I have no idea which Islamists are the “good guys” in his warped mind, nor do I care. What little stability there was over there when he took office has been obliterated by his evil machinations.

Sentient Americans see Islam for what it is: a satanic, militant-political ideology couched in a religion. It is a disease on the face of the earth, and everywhere it exists it brings brutal, violent oppression. Telling the truth about this evil belief system is not “hatred” or “Islamophobia.” Pamela Geller’s ads are spot-on, and we need many more like her. Nowadays, wherever real truth is told, haters of truth will always spit and hiss—and lie. Such is the case with the ones who are blasting her ads as they slavishly bow to the tenets of Muslim Sharia law that stand in stark opposition to everything that the United States of America represents.

Jerry Boykin Wishes 'Cowardly' Christians Would Be Brave Like ISIS Terrorists

In the same interview with Sandy Rios today in which he warned of a looming Civil-War-level crisis in the U.S. and reported of the imminent Christian conversion of Israel’s Jews, retired Army general and Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin wondered why “cowardly” American Christians aren’t brave like the terrorists of ISIS.

“Think about this, what if we had Christians that were that committed to what they believe?” he said, after Rios played him a clip of a Vice interview with an ISIS spokesman. “I mean, here’s a guy who stands up and says, ‘I’m willing to die, I’m willing to die for it.’ And what about the Christian church these days? We’ve got Christians that are more cowardly than, I think, at any time in the history of America because they won’t stand up to evil.”

He went on to claim that “much” of the Islamist extremism in the United States “has come across our southern border” or “has been just developed inside by those people that came across our southern border with nefarious intent to destroy us.”

Boykin made the remarks in a live interview at the Values Voter Summit, which is hosted by his employer the Family Research Council.

Gary Bauer: Obama 'More Interested In Defending The Reputation Of Islam' Than 'Saving The Lives Of Christians'

Gary Bauer’s speech to the Values Voter Summit today was a parade of anti-Muslim rhetoric — fitting for a conference on protecting “religious liberty”— that led up to him accusing President Obama of being “more interested in defending the reputation of Islam than he [is] in saving the lives of Christians.”

“Obama and his allies do everything they can to rip out of our society all the vestiges that made this Judeo-Christian civilization” which “liberal elites can’t stand,” he declared.

If the next Republican presidential nominee has “a heart and a brain,” Bauer said, he would tell Obama that pushing back against anti-Muslim attacks is not “in his job description.”


 

Tony Perkins And Sandy Rios: Islam Is The 'Total Opposite Of Christianity,' 'Honors A God Of Death'

In an interview on American Family Radio at the Values Voter Summit this morning, the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins and the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios discussed what they believe is President Obama’s attempt to purge Christianity from the military. They said America must fight Islam, which they described as “a movement that honors a god of death” and the “total opposite of Christianity.”

“Faith is a very strong component in a lot of lives of those who serve in our nation’s military,” Perkins said.

“And you know, the counter to that, of course, the Islamic movement, one of their goals, their top of the charts goal, is to express themselves as a religious movement, a movement dedicated to Allah,” Rios responded. “They don’t hide it, they call his name when they murder, so we are opposing a movement that honors a god of death, really. So this is no time to be shy about who it is that we serve.”

“Right, we’re 180 degrees from those that are pushing the Islamic religion, ISIS and others,” Perkins responded. “Contrary to what the president says, they are Islamic and they are pushing that religion, which is the total opposite of Christianity.”

Perkins then added a plug for Christianity’s “exclusive invitation” to salvation.
