Out of the fullness of the heart
“O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” Matthew 12:34
The following quotes from Obama should let you know exactly how he feels.
“To the millions of Muslim Americans across the United States and more — the more than one billion Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a time of reflection and a time of devotion. It’s an occasion to join with family and friends in celebration of a faith known for its diversity and a commitment to justice and the dignity of all human beings. So to you and your families, Ramadan Kareem.”
“This evening reminds us of both the timeless teachings of a great religion (Islam) and the enduring strengths of a great nation. Like so many faiths, Islam has always been part of our American family, and Muslim Americans have long contributed to the strength and character of our country, in all walks of life. This has been especially true over the past 10 years.”
“Nor let us forget that every day for these past 10 years Muslim Americans have helped to protect our communities as police and firefighters, including some who join us tonight. Across our federal government, they keep our homeland secure, they guide our intelligence and counterterrorism efforts and they uphold the civil rights and civil liberties of all Americans. So make no mistake, Muslim Americans help to keep us safe.”
“…because no matter who we are, or how we pray, we’re all children of a loving God.”
The sweetest sound he knows
President Obama once said that the Muslim call to prayer is the “sweetest sound he knows”. Hmmmm. So, with that, let’s go right into today’s story.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is hosting an Iftar dinner Wednesday evening to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
The Iftar is the dinner that breaks the holiday’s daily fast. The dinner became an annual White House tradition under President Bill Clinton and was continued by President George W. Bush. The White House says invited guests include religious and grass-roots leaders in the Muslim-American community as well as leaders of other faiths and elected officials.
Earlier, the president has separate meetings with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. source – AP
The song remains the same
At least one U.S. military serviceman has been arrested in connection with an alleged plot to attack Fort Hood nearly two years after a deadly shooting rampage at the base, Fox News has learned exclusively.
Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody there.
Abdo, 21, was found with weapons, explosives and jihadist materials at the time of his arrest, a senior Army source confirms to Fox News. He was arrested at around 2 p.m. Wednesday after someone called authorities to report a suspicious individual.
Eric Vasys, a spokesman with the FBI’s San Antonio Office, said authorities found firearms and bomb making components, which he described as smokeless gun powder, inside Abdo’s motel room. Sources also say Abdo was attempting to make a purchase at Guns Galore in Killeen, the same ammunition store where Major Nidal Hasan purchased weapons that were allegedly used to gun down 13 people and wound 30 others on Nov. 5, 2009.
Law enforcement officials suspect Abdo was planning an attack in or around Ft. Hood, though they say the exact target is not clear.
Bob Jenkins, a Fort Campbell spokesman, told Fox News that Abdo was also being investigated for child pornography found on his government computer.
Abdo went AWOL on July 4. On the eve of his first deployment to Afghanistan — after only one year in the Army — Abdo applied for conscientious objector status. It was denied by his superiors at Ft. Campbell but later overturned by the Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Army review board. source – Fox News
Oh the joy, the unbridled fun of Islam
Click here to read more about the true face of Islam, and not the fantasy that the clueless Prince thinks exists.
“With his sex-fueled lyrics and gyrating dancers pop star Prince is an unlikely advocate of Islam. But the man who sang about ’23 positions in a one night stand,’ has declared that people are ‘happy’ to be governed by strict Islamic law and women love wearing burkas.
‘It’s fun being in Islamic countries, to know there’s only one religion,’ the pint size pop star told British newspaper, The Guardian.
‘There’s order. You wear a burka. There’s no choice. People are happy with that.’
When pressed on those who may not be so happy to wear the garment, he shrugged and said: ‘There are people who are unhappy with everything. “There’s a dark side to everything.’
Sensing that he might be about to enter a political maelstrom, he added: ‘I don’t want to get up on a soapbox. ‘My view of the world, you can debate that for ever. But I’m a musician. That’s what I do. And I also am music. Come to the show for that.’ source – Daily Mail UK
As-Salamu Alaikum! Good morning!
MORTON GROVE, Ill. — “As-Salamu Alaikum! Good morning!” booms Habeeb Quadri, looking out over a sea of kids gathered in the gymnasium of the Muslim Community Center Full Time School.
“As-Salamu Alaikum!” the students shout in reply, echoing the traditional Arabic greeting, “Peace be upon you.”
It is a scene played out in countless variations each weekday at the estimated 240 to 250 private Islamic schools in the U.S. offering instruction to K-12 students. The increasing enrollment in these schools reflects the religion’s growing number of American followers and the desire of parents to shelter young Muslims from discrimination and discomfort they might encounter at public schools.
But Islamic schools, like mosques and other Islamic institutions, can can be viewed with distrust and even hostility, which means their founders have to work overtime to gain a foothold in many communities.
The MCC Full Time School, which has a student body of 410 pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students, is in many ways typical of U.S. Islamic schools. At a recent morning assembly, students recited from the Quran, discussed the virtue of the month — honesty — and heard announcements.
The Islamic School League of America (ISLA), a nonprofit that connects Muslim educators and institutions, estimates that 40,000 students are enrolled in Islamic schools in the United States, a 25 percent increase from 2006. Those numbers are expected to keep growing as new schools open and existing schools expand.
In addition to standard curricula adopted from public schools, Islamic schools typically offer Arabic and study of the Quran. Beyond that, many offer Islamic studies, which vary widely but may include stories of the prophets, teaching about the Crusades and scientific discoveries of the Ottoman Empire. Teaching approaches also vary, and it’s difficult to generalize about many other aspects of their curricula and religious instruction. source – MSNBC
NOTE: You also need to read about the Muslim plan for world domination, coming soon to a country near you.
The United Muslim States of Americanistan
The shocking plan by Obama to first grant amnesty to the 12 million illegal immigrants already in this country, and then, to bring in an estimated 50 million Muslim immigrants to change the voting blocs that exists now.
That would allow the Muslims to take over legally, by voting their way in. Not a shot would have to be fired.
Is it true?…could this really be happening?
Watch and decide for yourself…
Birds of a feather
Since 9/11, the outcry by “good, moderate” Muslims against Islamic jihad has been deafening in it’s silence. I mean, with the exception of half a dozen or so, where is the Muslim rebuke of jihad? There is none. You would think that with 1,300,000.000 members, you could at the very least find a few hundred thousand who would speak out against it. So, with that in mind, NTEB applauds the pilots of the North Carolina bound flight who refused to fly the plane with potential terrorists aboard.
“Two Muslim religious leaders were asked to leave a commercial airliner in Memphis – and were told it was because the pilot refused to fly with them aboard. Masudur Rahman and another imam had already been allowed to board their Delta Connection flight from Memphis, Tennessee, to Charlotte, North Carolina before they were asked to get off the plane.
Ironically, the two men were headed to a North American Imams conference discussing Islamophobia or fears of Islam and discrimination against American Muslims.
Mr Rahman said he and Mohamed Zaghloul, of the Islamic Association of Greater Memphis, were cleared by security agents and boarded the plane for an 8.40am departure. The aircraft pulled away from the gate, but the pilot then announced the plane must return, Mr Rahman said. When it did, the imams were asked to go back to the boarding gate where they were told the pilot was refusing to accept them because some other passengers could be uncomfortable.” source – Daily Mail
