Prominent Muslim Interfaith Leader Distributes Pro-Jihad Propaganda

Islam is a religion of profound contradiction.  Commonly portrayed as a “religion of peace,” it is simultaneously responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks around the world.  While claiming to advocate high ethical standards, the Muslim faith also advocates intentional deception under the doctrine known in Arabic as “taqiyya,” which encourages believers to deliberately mislead non-Muslims if it will further the faith.

Recently billboards have appeared over I-80 sponsored by an organization which calls itself SWIFT (Southwest Interfaith Team).  The billboards proclaim: “One God: Three Faiths Christians and Jews and Muslims ALL working for Peace and Understanding.”  SWIFT is composed of a group of 18 congregations throughout the south and southwest suburbs of Chicago, including seven Catholic churches and five liberal Evangelical churches.  The headline of a newspaper article about the organization misleadingly states: “They’re on their path to God like I am.”  In truth, there are fundamental theological conflicts between Christians, Jews, and Muslims that cannot be reconciled, and which have caused untold bloodshed throughout the centuries.

Another example of taqiyya is the imam Muhammad Shahidullah, who is active in interfaith outreach.  He has addressed the New York Police Department and has visited the White House as part of an interfaith delegation.  He has participated in an event at New York’s 9/11 Tribute Museum and has attended the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week.  Shahidullah has been recognized by the New York City Council as “an outstanding citizen, one whom is worthy of the esteem of both our community and the great City of New York.”

The Investigative Project on Terrorism, however, reports that Shahidullah, a Bangladeshi native who lives in Queens, New York’s Jamaica neighborhood, is also responsible for propagating extremist and Islamist propaganda through his website Dawah USA.  Included on his website is American-born al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki’s infamous “It’s a War on Islam” speech, which portrays counter-terrorism efforts as “a war against Muslims and Islam.”  Awlaki was killed in a 2011 drone strike, but his online voice continues to radicalize Muslims.

Also found on Shahidullah’s Dawah USA website are speeches by numerous radical Islamic preachers, including the leader of the Virginia Jihad Network, Ali al-Timimi, who advocates the religious transformation of the United States: “if Muslims live in a non-Muslim society … then they could make the country Islamic themselves.”  Speeches by al-Timimi’s mentor, Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, are also featured on the site.  Philip rails against the “concept of globalized western civilization as portrayed in secular democracy … (which is ostensibly) being pushed down the throats of the rest of the world.”

A speech by the late Pakistani Islamist Israr Ahmad warns against the so-called “Jewish Conspiracy,” and promotes “not only reviving the Qur’an-centered Islamic perennial philosophy and world-view but also reforming the society in a practical way with the ultimate objective of establishing a true Islamic State, or the System of Khilafah [Caliphate].”

An e-book entitled Towards Understanding Islam may be downloaded from the Dawah USA site, which defines jihad as “a war that is waged solely in the name of Allah against those who practice [sic] oppression as enemies of Islam,” adding that “If the country attacked has not enough strength to fight back, then it is the religious duty of the neighboring Muslim countries to help her; if even they fail, then the Muslims of the whole world must fight the common enemy.”

Dawah USA’s president Shahidullah is also chairman of the board of ITV USA, which describes itself as “A Global Dawah Channel” seeking “to propagate the inherent love and peace that Islam embodies.”  ITV USA furthers the deceptive practice of taqiyya by attempting to lull Western Christians into a false sense of harmony and mutual coexistence.

The truth is that one can scarcely find a greater manifestation of warlike aggression and oppression than that which has been regularly practiced by Islam since the seventh century.  Jihad – “a holy war undertaken as a sacred duty by Muslims” – is responsible for the slaughter of countless millions of “infidels” merely for refusing to bow the knee to Islam.  Let us hope and pray that the non-Muslim world will remain vigilant so that we do not unwittingly fulfill the Biblical warning: “When people are saying, ‘Peace and security,’ then sudden disaster comes upon them” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).

South Dakota Displays ‘In God We Trust’ Motto in All of the State’s Public Schools

A new South Dakota law requires the state’s public schools to display the national motto “In God We Trust.”  Effective with the 2019-2020 school year, “In God We Trust” will be posted in each public school in a “prominent location,” according to the provisions of the law. Examples of prominent locations include an entryway, cafeteria, or other common areas where students are “most likely” to see it.  Republican Gov. Kristi Noem signed the law in March, NPR reported, and its backers say its intent is to inspire patriotism in the state’s public schools.  Read more: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/south-dakota-displays-in-god-we-trust-motto-in-all-of-the-states-public-schools

GOP ‘Jihad Squad’ Facebook Post Called “Racist” Political Hate Speech

The Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association prompted an outcry from Muslims when it posted a faux movie poster image labeling four Democratic congresswomen as “The Jihad Squad” on its Facebook page.

The post showed the four congresswomen with a tagline that read: “Political jihad is their game. If you don’t agree with their socialist ideology, you’re racist.”  U.S. Reps. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Ilhaam Omar of Minnesota are shown holding guns. The other two images are of U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.  President Donald Trump had earlier tweeted that the four congresswomen should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

A Muslim civil rights group expressed outrage at the reference to “Jihad” and the President’s insinuation that some Muslim countries, particularly in Africa, have serious social problems.  Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Chicago chapter of CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, insisted that there is no room in the political discourse for attacks based on race or religion: “But the fact remains that there is a cultural problem that allows these types of problematic, xenophobic, racist imagery to continue to come out regularly on those Facebook and Twitter and Instagram pages.”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!  The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “racism” as “prejudice or discrimination.”  One can scarcely find a greater manifestation of prejudice and discrimination than that which has been regularly practiced by Islam since the seventh century.  Jihad, a central doctrine of Islam, is defined as “a holy war undertaken as a sacred duty by Muslims,” and is responsible for the slaughter of countless millions of “infidels” merely for refusing to bow the knee to Islam.

Chicago Mayor Lori was quick to condemn the nasty Republican “racists,” and demanded that the Republican Party identify and punish whomever is responsible.  “Somebody needs to step up and take ownership of that,” Lightfoot said. “There should be no place in Illinois for that type of foolish, hateful, divisive post.”

Republicans were quick to grovel and attempt to make atonement for their sins.  Lake County Party Chairman Mark Shaw stated that he was “sorry if anyone who saw the image was offended by the contents.”  Gov. J.B. Pritzker applauded the apology, but added that “simply speaking out this one time isn’t enough.”  As this goes to press we are still awaiting a commensurate apology on the part of moderate Muslims for the excesses of their more fanatical brethren.

Muslim Cleric Who Hid 262 Christians During Terror Attack Honored By Trump Admin

The Trump administration has honored an 83-year-old Muslim cleric from Nigeria who saved hundreds of Christians during a terror attack in 2018. Imam Abubakar Abdullahi, who saved the Christians after hiding them in his home and a mosque, was honored by The State Department in an awards ceremony on Wednesday for his actions on June 23, 2018.
The incident occurred when “ethnic Fulani herdsmen, who are predominantly Muslim, launched attacks on ten villages in Barkin Ladi, killing hundreds of Christians.”

Climate Change Hysteria Grips the Democratic Party

This week Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont joined Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Oregon’s Rep. Earl Blumenauer in introducing a resolution declaring that climate change is a national emergency, seemingly oblivious that the notion of global warming is coming under increased scrutiny.

While the vast majority of the scientific community continues to march in lockstep to the mantra of climate change, dissent is growing.  ScienceDaily notes that “there is also a small but vocal number of scientists in climate and climate-related fields that disagree with the consensus view.”

The alarmist Democrat-sponsored resolution “express(es) the sense of Congress that there is a climate emergency which demands a massive-scale mobilization to halt, reverse, and address its consequences and causes.”  Then, as if to undermine the urgency expressed by the first clause, the resolution goes on to state that “nothing in this concurrent resolution constitutes a declaration of a national emergency for purposes of any Act of Congress authorizing the exercise … of any special or extraordinary power.”

The contradictory resolution mirrors the ambivalence of the public at large.  According to a recent Gallup poll, while a majority of Americans believe that climate change is occurring, only 44% “worry a great deal about global warming.”  Neither, apparently, does President Trump, who in 2017 decided to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement, which aims to combat global warming by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane, calling it “onerous” and “harsh.”  Others, such as Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, are more blunt.  In a press conference in February, Landry called the theory that human activities are the primary cause of climate change a “hoax.”

How much global warming has actually occurred?  NASA reports: “The planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.9 degrees Celsius) since the late 19th century” – a period of well over a century.

And then there is the question of the massive amount of money required to solve a dubious “national emergency” – and who will pay for it.  The International Energy Agency has estimated that switching from fossil fuels to low-carbon sources of energy will cost an astounding $44 trillion between now and 2050.

Undeterred, Democrats in Congress appear relentless in their goal of making climate change the preeminent issue of our day and will not hesitate to employ hyperbole and outright distortion to drive the nation bankrupt and drown Americans in a sea of new bureaucratic regulation.  Thankfully increasing numbers of Americans are warming up to the climate change skeptics and are unwilling to capitulate to the Democratic agenda.

‘Elite’ Pedophiles Panicking after Jeffrey Epstein Arrest

Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein socialized with the rich and powerful, harboring a sordid hidden life that came to light in 2008, landing him in prison for the solicitation of underage girls for sex.  Epstein was infamous for his private Boeing 727 airliner nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” which ferried guests including Bill Clinton and a bevy of young girls allegedly pressed into prostitution at his Caribbean estate dubbed “Orgy Island.”  His laughable 13-month sentence after being accused by more than 40 minor girls of sexual abuse is a testament to his connections in high places.

Report: Epstein’s Lawyers Offer Plea Deal to Divulge Names in Exchange for 5-Year Sentence

Alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein will agree to give up names of individuals who took part in the trafficking ring he’s charged with running—in exchange for a substantially lower sentence.  “Epstein’s lawyer has already made a proffer to SDNY,” OANN host Jack Posobiec said in a July 8 Twitter post. SDNY refers to the Southern District of New York.  “Epstein will agree to cooperate with the investigation, including giving up the names of individuals that paid for activities with underage girls in exchange for a maximum sentence not to exceed 5 years,” he continued, without indicating where he got the information.
