30 North Gaza Residents Killed By Hamas Weapons Dump Inside A UN School

1/06/2009 02:40:00 PM

(0) Comments

At least 30 people were reportedly killed and 53 wounded in an explosion in a UN-run school in the town of Jabalya in the northern Gaza Strip, according to Palestinians.  Hundreds had sought refuge at the school.  However, three officials at Shifa hospita, where some of the wounded were taken, said at least 42 people were killed and that the number of dead would likely rise.  Ma’an news was reporting both numbers.

The Israel Defense Forces issued a statement saying that the school grounds were currently being used by terrorists to fire mortar shells at the troops.  Two neighborhood residents confirmed that militants were firing mortars near the school, then fled into a crowd of people in the streets.  Additionally, an IDF spokesperson reported that a missile launcher and a number of anti-tank missiles were found at a Palestinian school yard along with two dead Hamas soldiers.  According to the IDF, among these two dead were members of a Hamas launching cell, including operatives brothers Immad Abu Askar and Hassan Abu Askar.  Residents said that the Abu Askar brothers were known low-level Hamas militants.

IDF reported that Hamas was firing mortar bombs at Israeli soldiers from the UN school. 


The infantrymen returned mortar fire into the school grounds, the army said. Defense officials told the AP that booby-trapped bombs in the school triggered the secondary explosions which killed the Palestinians on the site.  The following video was released via the IDF showing Israel firing upon Hamas targets with secondary explosions.  It is unclear whether the school is included in these videos.



Hamas has in the past fired at Israel and at troops from inside schools, cynically using civilians, as is proven by UAV footage,” the army said.

The UN said hundreds of people from a Gaza City refugee camp had gone to seek shelter in the school…

I am appealing to political leaders here and in the region and the world to get their act together and stop this,” said John Ging, the top UN official in Gaza.  “They are responsible for these deaths.”



Of course Hamas will say that Israel hit the school and that they had nothing to do with it.  It’s not like Hamas has used schools before as weapons dumps right?  Especially since that exact school had been used before to fire rockets and mortars for Hamas.  And there is a 2007 video of Hamas firing mortars into Israel from this same school yard.


Now you may think Israel was wrong for firing on a school however, do you think its right that Hamas is firing mortars from the same location with innocent civilians inside?  But the thought to ponder in all of this is WHY WAS THERE A SECONDARY EXPLOSION today?  And WHY did the UN allow Hamas to CONTINUE to use this location as a firing point since it was revealed in 2007?  Just thoughts to ponder!

And last week a science teacher and headmaster at a UN school was killed.  By day he was a teacher, at night, he built rockets for Islamic Jihad.  Hamas hailed him as a martyr who led Islamic Jihad’s “engineering unit” – its bomb makers.  Although the UN denies any knowledge of this, and his family denies the claim while Islamic Jihad posters filled his home, the man’s body was wrapped in an Islamic Jihad flag at his funeral.

At the UN school, a handwritten notice was posted on the gate at the entrance to the school declaring the man “the chief leader of the engineering unit”, would now find “paradise”.

weapons-in-school-dotz It is also known that Hamas hides weapons at schools.

Meanwhile, back to today, hundreds of innocent civilians had headed to a UN school for safety.  And Hamas decides to use the grounds around the school to fire at Israeli troops, knowing full well that Israel would fire back at them.  Then when Israel did fire back, it set the booby-traps off INSIDE the school.  Nice guys, them Hamas eh?

So how can you fight a terrorist organization, that uses schools as weapons dumps.  That fires weapons from schools and school yards, while innocents are inside? And what kind of government puts its own innocent civilians at risk, while that same government should be protecting its own innocent civilians?


But yet, neither Israel nor Hamas (Palestine) has a monopoly on what is right or what is wrong either.

1/06/2009 09:31:00 AM

(0) Comments

How would you feel if your child went to summer camp, and from the age of 5 or so, was taught how to kill Jews while at camp, required to wear wearing paramilitary clothing? 

Q:  What are you holding in your hand?

A:  A rifle.

Q:  What are you going to do with it?

A:  Shoot the Jews.

How would you feel if you had a child that was 5-7 years old and said the following:

Q:  Do you want to be a martyr?

A:  Yes.

Q:  Why do you want to?

A:  To kill the Jews.

Q:  Why are they shooting at us?

A:  Because they’re animals.

And then use said children, as human shields?

Or what about dressing your children up for a stage “show” as a suicide bomber?  Or how about bloodying their hands symbolizing the Ramallah Massacre?


Need I say more?

It’s Appropriate To Use Hamas Flag, But Not Terrorist Israel Flag At Demonstration.

1/06/2009 08:44:00 AM

(0) Comments

Its appropriate to fly the Hamas flag … but I don’t think it’s appropriate to fly the Israeli flag anywhere in America … that flag represents a terrorist state.”

When asked if he thought Hamas was a terrorist organization, his answer is “Absolutely not, that’s right wing spin.  That’s pro-Israel spin.”

When asked if Hamas targets civilians, his answer is “No.”

How typical for San Francisco and for California.  Forget the red, white and blue, green is the new color of San Francisco,and I don’t mean “green” as in environment friendly.

Hamas Propaganda Of “Ghetto” Is False. [TRUTH via Video]

1/06/2009 08:35:00 AM

(0) Comments

Im sure you have heard that Gaza is being called a ghetto, comparing it to the Jews being placed in  the Warsaw Ghetto in Germany.  I’m sure you have heard they have nothing.  No food.  No medical supplies.  No fresh water.  I’m here to say BULL CHIPS! 

The video below was taken on December 3, 2008 and uploaded on January 3, 2009.  Does this look like a suffering city to you?  Does this life look miserable?  Does this really look like a third-world country?  Do these people look like they are starving from lack of food?  Does this really look like a prison?  Does it look like they have no shelter?  Does this really look like a concentration camp?  Does this really look like a city where people make only $2 a day?

Group In Oklahoma City Says Offensive Against Hamas Is “Illegal And Immoral”.

1/06/2009 08:26:00 AM

(0) Comments


Nice Sign.  Yesterday, about  200 Palestinian supporters, marched in front of the state capital at noon, urging the United States to take a neutral stand in the Mideast.

The protest was organized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, OK chapter.

People walked in front of the Capital building in a circle during the noon hour chanting, “Stop the killing, free, free Gaza!” and “Free, free Palestine; occupation is a crime!”

Michael Abdulaziz-Gipson, a board member said the group is calling upon public officials and congressmen to stop the Israeli attacks and potential occupation of the Gaza Strip. “We are asking the American public not to become desensitized,” he said, noting that the general population is being forced to stay in their home.

gallery_photo According to Razi Hashmi, the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ executive director, America should take immediate steps to end Israel’s “illegal and immoral” offensive against the Gaza' Strip’s Hamas rulers. “We as Oklahomans and as Americans should be concerned about this conflict because our taxes are going towards Israel,” Hashmi said.  “We should not allow our government to give Israel a blank check to allow the destruction of hopes for peace in the Middle East.”  However in a rather confusing statement, Hashmi also said as an American citizen, he agrees with the U.S. description of Hamas.

During the demonstration, one protestor held a sign that showed a swastika inside the Star of David.  According to Hashmi, the man carrying the sign, identified only as a college student from OK City, was asked to leave and the sign removed a “couple of minutes” after the demonstration started.  Also according to Hashimi, the man has been banned from future protests organized by the organization.  According to Hashmi, the organization distributed rules before the demonstration that no offensive signs or banners would be tolerated.  “The Star of David is a sacred symbol of faith and Muslims are stressed by Islam to respect all symbols of faith and I apologize,” Hashmi said.  “This [sign] does not reflect our personal views.”

However, unless the video below was taken within the first few minutes of the protest, the sign is seen during the demonstration.  But then what do you expect from a group who defends Hamas?

Michael Barlow, past president of the Jewish Federation of Greater OK City watched the protest commenting, “War is unfortunate, but the question is:  What is Israel to do, with scores of missiles being shot into Israel population centers daily?”  “How long do you allow missiles to be shot into your country from another country?”  Barlow added that it is difficult for Israel to negotiate with Hamas leaders when they do not recognize Israel’s right to exist.

United Methodist minister Rev. Andres Tevington of the Church of the Servant in OK City said the Israelis and Palestinians should quit “illegitimately calling on the name of God” in this fighting.  “We call upon the U.S. to help both sides see there is a different way to do this,” he said.

Rev. Kristen Brown, a United Methodist minister attended the protest saying, “I saw that this isn’t really a religious issue, this is an issue about people who are living under military occupation for 40 years and they’re in a very desperate situation,” she said.


okc001 What irritates me more and more, is the use of children in these protests.  How can a child, who is aged 2-7 years old, have a mental ability to understand the protest, and understand the purpose of these signs, or the babies swaddled in bloodied cloth they carry?  How can these children make a voluntary choice at their age to make a voluntary consent to participate in these protests.  Any child who is a minor, should not be allowed to participate in these protests, if they are a credible organization, who is looking out for a child’s best interest.  These children do not have the mentality to make an informed consent to voluntarily participate in these protests.  This is nothing more than encouraging racism.

And how can you call for the end of an “illegal and immoral” offensive against a terrorist organization and still say you support the U.S. designation of Hamas as a terrorist organization?

Fox News PWNS Former Terrorist PLO Legal Advisor Buttu.

1/05/2009 12:14:00 AM

(0) Comments

HamasPalestinian Legal Advisor, Diana Buttu, says “Absolutely not” and “you are blaming the victim”  to Hamas being the aggressors here.  She also claims that is not a question of Israel responding, it is a question of Israel initiating attacks on Gaza, and that their actions are a violation of International Law. [Listen for Jarrett laugh after she says that statement.]

Says “Absolutely not” to Hamas using humans as shields and firing rockets from high civilian population areas and if Hamas is responsible for the high death rate of civilians.  Her defense is that Jarrett has never been to the Gaza Strip and he does not know what it looks like that Israel is targeting Government buildings and schools.  Note, she never directly answers the question of Hamas firing rockets from civilian areas, in numbers around 6,000 over 18 months, or comments about using Mosques as armories. 

She also says that the Hamas rockets do not have explosive heads.  Well the last time I checked a .45 bullet doesn’t have one either, but that doesn’t stop it from killing someone either.

She also says it is wrong to blame victims because Israel is using US backed weapons to attack Gaza.  That these are war crimes are Israel should be prosecuted.  So obviously this woman justifies any rocket that Hamas fired into civilian areas prior to Israel attacking Gaza wasn’t a war crime?

Jarret informs Buttu that he has been to the Gaza Strip, that he has met with terrorists, and that this was the end of the interview.  Buttu continues to tell Jarret that he’s wrong and the feed ends.



Here Buttu talks with CNN.  Here again she talks about how over 1600 people were killed from Israeli attacks prior to Israel attacking Gaza, but never talks about the over 6000 rockets that were sent from Gaza to Israel in the same time.  And she says the only way for peace, is for Israel to end the occupation [of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem].

She really does defend Hamas in this video saying they are a political organization with domestic roots that is portrayed differently outside the world.  And that this is a “homegrown organization”.

If All The Citizens in Gaza are Innocent, Why Do So Many Show Up For Hamas Rayyan’s Funeral?

1/04/2009 11:18:00 PM

(0) Comments

Seriously, it’s an honest question, not filled with sarcasm.  Really, I don’t understand. 



In this first picture from the AP, the caption reads:  “Palestinians carry the bodies of senior Hamas leader Nizar Rayyan and his family during their funeral in Jabalya in the northern Gaza Strip.  Rayyan, his four wives and eight children were killed in an Israeli air strike on their home on Thursday.” 





And if all the citizens of Gaza are innocent and victims of Hamas, then who are all of these people attending the funeral?






I mean  really, if all these people are innocent civilians and not Hamas supporters, then why are they at Rayyan’s funeral?





I’m just really confused at what I hear pro-Palestinian protestors saying, and what I see in pictures.

So, if you support a terrorist organization, but are not directly involved with the terrorist organization, then you are innocent?





So can anyone explain this contradiction to me without blowing a microchip in the process?






Here’s another example from about a month ago at a funeral for four Hamas gunmen.






Especially since this picture is from the Hamas Anniversary celebration from Dec. 14, 2008?  If the citizens of Gaza are innocent, they why are they celebrating Hamas’ anniversary?




Or did all these people really just have nothing better do do that day than to go to a celebration support a terrorist organization?

Obsession, Radical Islam’s War Against The West. [Full Video]

1/04/2009 10:40:00 PM

(1) Comments

2851180686_91f0c7b3f1_o This is an award-winning documentary on Radical Islam that has been out for a couple of years however, I think it’s time to bring it back to the surface.  My first experience with this movie was back in September when it showed up inside my local Sunday newspaper where some 28 million copies of this DVD have been distributed for free.

Using images from Arab TV, rarely seen in the West, Obsession reveals an “insiders view” of the hatred the Radicals are teaching, their incitement of global jihad, and their goal of world domination. 

Obsession examines how seemingly isolated acts of terrorism are seen by radical Islamists as an integral part of a global war or jihad for world domination.

Walid Shoebat is shown in this video.  He was born in Bethlehem and became a member of the PLO.  He was jailed and after his release came to the US and continued his anti-Israel activities.  In 1993, he studied the Jewish Bible in a challenge to convert his wife to Islam.  Six months later, Walid realized that everything he had been taught about Jews was a lie.

Nonie Darwish is also in this video.  Her father headed the Egyptian military in Gaza and the Sinai when Gaza was under Egyptian control in the fifties. In 1978 she emigrated to America.  After 9/11 she realized that her culture of origin is in a head of collision with the rest of the world, and started speaking out about terrorism.  She believes that her support to Israel does not take away from her love of her culture of origin.

Mary Matalin, former Assistant to the President, Counselor to Vice President & Political Strategist and Commentator said about the movie:

For those people who don’t understand the threat posed by Radical Islam, and especially for those people who do understand the threat - ‘Obsession’ demonstrates in the clearest possible terms that we must stand up and defend our way of life. 

Major General Bentley Rayburn (Ret) of the USAF had to say about ‘Obsession’:

As a retired Air Force Major General who has lived and traveled through the Middle East and has commanded major combat organizations in key Muslim countries, I believe ‘Obsession’ is a movie that every American ought to see.  It is the most accurate description I’ve seen of the great struggle that the western world will face for many years to come."

Now the movie does have its share of refuters, calling the movie nothing but a lie filled with propaganda.  One such website is “Obsession With Hate” saying that

“there are those who have misused Islam to promote an anti-Western militant ideology” but “Obsession is not an honest critique of violent radicalism.  Instead, it is a propaganda piece that seeks to cast a wide net of suspicion of against Muslims by blurring the line between violent radicalism and mainstream Islam.”

“As such, it does not call on credible experts and reputable scholars but resorts to shady characters like “former-terrorist” Walid Shoebat, who has made such outlandish statements as: ‘Islam is no the religion of God Islam is the devil.’”

Those who oppose this movie, mostly Muslims, are quick to note that the movie was produced and made by Jews saying again, it is nothing more than propaganda against Muslims produced by Jews.

Either way, Obsession does show some interesting things.  Only you yourself can decide what to get out of this movie, and what the movie is trying to say.

Below is the movie, in it’s entirety.  The movie can also be downloaded via Google Video for your iPod.

Son of a Hamas Founder Converts To Christianity Through Free-Will Thought. [Entire Fox Documentary Video.]

1/04/2009 10:04:00 PM

(0) Comments


This is what can happen when you ask “What if?”  “What if everything I’ve been told, been taught is a lie?”  And then sent out to decide what is right and what is wrong for oneself.

Mus’ab Hassan Youself is the son of Sheikh Hassan Youself, the man who is one of the Hamas founding members.  Mus’ab has decided to abandon his Muslim faith, denounce his father’s organization, move to America and become a Christian.  Youself has sought asylum in the US and now attends an evangelical Christian church in San Diego, CA.

This is a person, who was “inside” Hamas.  Who’s father is one of the founding members of Hamas.  This is a person, who has turned away from Islam, turned away from Hamas, turned away from his family and made an informed decision about what Hamas really is.  This is the person that everyone should be listening to.  “I call upon the Palestinian people to open its eyes and see what Hamas was doing…”

He has said the true nature of Hamas and radical Islam was discovered during a stint in an Israeli prison.  He renounced his Muslim faith, left his family behind in Ramallah and converted to Christianity.

“Islam is not the word of God,” said Youself.  “If you want to be offended it’s your problem.  But you know something?  Go study.  Think for a second that I might be right.  So wake up, look at your path, see where you’re going.  Are you really going to heave with 72 virgins after you kill yourself and kill another 20 people?”

Sheikh Hassan Yousef About his father (who is seen left in the center, wearing the blue shirt) and Hamas, Mu’sab said Hamas betrays the Palestinian cause and tortures its own members.  He also states;

“The Hamas leadership, including my father, they’re responsible; they’re responsible for all the violence that happened from the organization.  I know they describe it as reaction to Israeli aggression, but still, they are part of it and they had to make decisions in those operations against Israel [for] which there was the killing of many civilians.”

Mu’sab has said there will never be lasting peace between Israel and Hamas.

“There is no chance.  Is there any chance for fire to co-exist with the water?”  “Its not about Israel, it’s not about Hamas:  it’s about both ideologies.”

AUGUST, 2008

nasrallah yassin sadr Mus’ab announced that he left Islam.  From an article on Haaretz titled:  “I’ve left a society that sanctifies terror.” (Right are the three founding members of Hamas with Mus’ab’s father’s picture on the far left)

A moment before beginning his supper, Masab, son of West Bank Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef, glances at the friend who has accompanied him to the restaurant where we met.  They whisper a few words and then say grace, thanking God and Jesus for putting food on their plates.

It takes a few seconds to digest this sight:  The son of Hamas MP who is also the most popular figure in that extremist Islamic organization, a young man who assisted his father for years in his political activities, has become a rank-and-file Christian.  “I’m now called Joseph,” he says at the outset.

Masab knows that he has little hope of returning to visit the Holy Land in this lifetime.  “I know that I’m endangering my life and am even liable to lose my father, but I hope that he’ll understand this and that God will give him and my family patience and willingness to open their eyes to Jesus and to Christianity.  Maybe one day I’ll be able to return to Palestine and to Ramallah with Jesus, in the Kingdom of God.

hm009Nor does he attempt to hide his affection for Israel, or his abhorrence of everything representing the surroundings in which he grew up:  the nation, the religion, the organization.

“Send regards to Israel, I miss it.  I respect Israel and admire it as a country,” he says.

“You Jews should be aware:  You will never, but never have peace with Hamas.  Islam, as the ideology that guides them, will not allow them to achieve a peace agreement with the Jews.  They believe that tradition says that the Prophet Mohammed fought against the Jews and that therefore they must continue to fight them to the death.”

Is that the justification for the suicide attacks?

“More than that.  An entire society sanctifies death and the suicide terrorists.  In Palestinian culture a suicide terrorist becomes a hero, a martyr.  Sheikhs tell their students about the ‘heroism of the shaheeds.’

And yet, in spite of the criticism of the place he left, California can’t make the longings disappear.

“I miss Ramallah,” he says.  “People with an open mind. … I mainly miss my mother, my brothers and sisters, but I know that it will be very difficult for me to return to Ramallah soon.”

Below are excerpts from an interview which aired on Al-Hayat TV (Cyprus) on August 19, 2008.  In this video, he talks about his childhood, his father, his involvement with the hatred of Jews, and his path to leaving Islam.



Fox News did a documentary with Mu’sab Hassan Youself titled “Escape From Hamas” that was shown on Fox News. Below, in six parts, is the entire documentary.




Believe it or not, no rant, but congregations to this brave young man who made a free will decision for himself.  That in itself says a lot since Hamas does not encourage independent free-will thought, but encourages sightless unthinking followers instead.  And obviously the young man was so disturbed at what he realized about Hamas and Islam that he turned his back on his own father and family.  By rejecting Islam he has turned into a apostate which a fatwa can be called on him.  The four major Sunni Madh’hab (schools of Islamic jurisprudence) and the Twelver Shi’a Jafar madhab agree that a sane adult male apostate must be executed since the Qur’an states that Allah (God) despises aspostasy.  [Qur’an 3:72, 3:90, 16:106, 4:137 and 5:54]

Now if only more people would listen to what he has to say and think for themselves instead of being mindless and sightless sheep being lead to a slaughter all in the name of God.

NYC Mayor Supports Israel [Common Sense]

1/04/2009 09:03:00 PM

(0) Comments

There is no proportional response to terrorism” - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s response to question from CNN’s Betty Nguyen if Israel’s bombing is extreme.

Bloomberg says that a country’s government has a responsibility to protect it’s people, and that Hamas broke the cease-fire several months ago.  Prior to the cease-fire, Hamas was only sending one or two rockets a day.  When the cease fire ended, Hamas decided to send hundreds of rockets and mortars across the border on a daily basis, a large increase in attacks thus intentionally trying to kill more innocent Israeli civilians.  Thus, Hamas was the one who started the conflict back up again, on an increased basis and larger scale, and thus Hamas’ refusal to end the rockets is what is killing the people of Gaza.  Hamas, who claims to be a government, is not protecting its people’s best interests but putting their own people in the middle of the attack.

Hamas has been sending rockets across the border since 2005 killing innocent civilians in Israel, and Israel finally retaliated and they are made out to be the “bad people” since they are killing innocent civilians while trying to take out terrorists.

Take a look at the video from CNN below.


And I leave you with this to ponder.  If all the people in Gaza are just innocent civilians, they why on December 14th, did hundreds of tens of thousands of people show up in Gaza to support Hamas’ 21st anniversary of existence?  Maybe, just maybe, because they support terrorists.

Have a look at BBC’s video of the celebration

The mass rally – with its sea of green flags – is being seen as a show of strength by Hamas…” 

“The Associated Press said the crowds filled an area in Gaza City which can accommodate 150,000 people.”

In a statement on its website, one of Hamas’ senior officials, Mahmoud Zahar, paid tribute to the organization on its anniversary.  ‘Hamas has gone from stone-throwing to guns and rockets, from a support of a few thousand people to a backing of millions in Arab countries and around the world’, he said.

Fox News said,

about 300,000 Hamas supporters crowded into a dusty outdoor arena and spilled over into nearby streets.  Many waved flags and sported baseball caps in the Islamic group’s signature green color.”

The huge turnout at the Gaza rally was a pointed display of strength directed at both Israel and Fatah, and further evidence of the Muslim militant group’s unchallenged control over 1.4 million Gazans.”

So tell me, doe the pictures below, taken on Dec. 14th, 2008s look like a forced celebration of a few innocent non-Hamas supporting citizens of Hamas?  Because to me, it looks more like an entire region of terrorist supporting civilians who are celebrating the existence of Hamas.  And I would assume that 1.5 million people, if they did oppose Hamas, could easily overrun the amount of Hamas terrorists that do exist in Gaza if they really wanted to.

Hezbollah Supporter Leads Anti-Israel Protest in Washington.

1/04/2009 07:17:00 AM

(0) Comments

braySo quick question to think about while watching the below video from 2000 first before we get to 2009.  The man in the middle, when the spread asks “Who here supports Hezbollah” does it not seem that the man in the middle raises his hands, not once, not twice, not three times, not four times, not five times, but six times to show his support for Hezbollah in this October 2000 video?  And also, what do you hear from the crowd?  Do you hear support or laughter?

The rally in 2000 was to mark the second Palestinian Intifada.  The man speaking is Islamist leader Abdurraham Alamoudi who was the founder and executive director of the American Muslim Council, who at this rally announced his support for Hezbollah.  He was convicted in 2007 as a “major player in the financial support of terrorist” and was sentenced to 23 years in prison.

Well, the man in the video is Mahdi Bray. After media attention on the above video, Bray claimed he was just having a bit of fun, and not approving Alamoudi’s words in a Northern Virginia Daily news article.

The majority of the people they were kind of raising their hands, and kind of cheering, and so on because this was so uncharacteristic of al-Amoundi.  We didn’t know he had a problem with law enforcement.  He was considered the pillar of the American Muslim community.

You saw me pumping my fists.  You didn’t see me raising my hands.  If they had shown the audience, you would have seen people in the audience raising their hands and falling out laughing.  For him to come and make these kinds of radical rants, no one took him seriously.

Mahdi Bray has worked with International ANSWER, a group who has recently organized over 50 Anti-Israel protests in the United States in the past week, a group who was founded by members of the Workers World Party (WWP) and members of the Party for Socialism and Liberation(PSL).  I recently blogged about ANSWER who has been accused for a few years of anti-Semitism, and supporting Hezbollah and Hamas.

Bray is also involved with:

  • Muslim American Society – Executive Director. Group has been reported to be a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom – Founding Board Member.  Group has been reported to have lobbied and litigated against U.S. counter-terrorism laws, provided legal counsel to terror suspects, and works to overturn terrorist convictions.
  • American Muslim Council (AMC)– Advisory Board.  This groups claims to fame are, The Chairman of this group was imprisoned for terror-related convictions in 2003.  AMC was a part of the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom.  AMC created the National Islamic Prison Foundation below.  AMC was a longtime supporter of Sudan’s National Islamic Front, which was and still is on the State Dept.’s list of terrorist organizations.
  • Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)– Advisory Board.  Formed a coalition to repeal and amend the Patriot Act.  MPAC asserts that Hezbollah “could be called a liberation movement.”  Found and executive director Salam AL-Marayati justified the existence of Hamas as a political entity and a provider of social programs and “educational operations”.  MPAC justified the 1983 bombing of the American Marine barracks in Lebanon as a “military operation” rather than a terrorist attack.  Claims Israel was established by terrorism and that they are the “worst terrorists in the world.”  And a lot more.
  • Interfaith Alliance Foundation – Advisory Board
  • Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations – President
  • National Islamic Prison Foundation (NIPF) – Head.  Created by American Muslim Council.  A Saudi-supported outreach program seeking to convert US prison inmates to the Islamic faith.  Tells them when they are released from prison, they will be able to find food and shelter, as well as assistance in finding employment, in virtually any mosque or masjid.  The indoctrination of American inmates is a strategy described in al Qaeda training manuals.
  • Imam Jamil Defense Fund – National Mobilization Chairman.  Organization provides legal aid for Jamil Abudullah Al-Amin (aka H. Rap Brown), who was twice on the FBI’s “Ten Most Wanted Fugitivies” list and is now serving a life sentence for murdering a police officer.
  • The Crescent Report” – Host of the Muslim-oriented radio talk show, sponsored by Wahhabi Saudi Arabia.
  • Activist Training Seminars” – A project of his whose objective is to train at least 1,000 people in the “skills necessary for effective activism.”
  • Lots more damming information at “When Islamists Get Caught:  MAS Edition”, “Leader of Muslim Brotherhood Front Group Appointed to Virginia Commission on Immigration”, “The Mendacity of MAS


Muslim American Society and ANSWER Anti-Israel Protest in Washington


HizballahMAS2 This protest was held this past Friday at the Israeli Embassy in Washington and then headed to the Egyptian Embassy.  Brian Becker, who heads ANSWER also made an appearance which can be seen in video 3 below.

These crimes could not be committed [against Gaza by Israel] and would not be committed without the explicit consent and support and financing provided by the Bush Administration.  And so in that sense we are here to say, that this is a US backed Israeli atrocity and justice demands that the United States Government cut all aid to Israel today, otherwise and because of it the US is guilty of war crimes too. 

[Oh okay, so I guess it didn’t matter that Bush just gave $85 MILLION dollars to the UN for Gaza and the West Bank right?  No aid for Israel, no aid for Gaza.  An eye for an eye.]

Bray, meanwhile, had to say, “We’re here to say the violence must stop.”  “And we’re here to say that there must be a ceasefire, a truce and that basically the sanctity of life is important.”  He also had to say in one of the videos, that the people were there to represent the Muslims.  [Wait, isn’t this SUPPOSE to be anti-war, and not about anti-Semitism?]

Once again, just that, kind of a layout of what we want to do here today.

First of all, we’re here to protest the occupation of Palestine.  We’re here to protest the slaughter in Gaza.  We’re here to protest the 18 months of siege that has taken place in Gaza, before the bombs dropped, people were dying because they couldn’t get food, medicine, medical attention, clean drinking water, etc.  So, that’s why we’re here.

[Sure, I’ve given my own terms for a ceasefire and truce.  Gaza stays the way it is, Israel stays the way it is.  However, if a rocket comes from Gaza into Israel, that means that Israel can send a Hellfire missile back across to Gaza.  If two rockets come from Gaza, then two Hellfire missiles go back across to Gaza.  Fair deal.   But if Iran sends anything over to Israel, then that’s a whole different ballgame.]

One angry protestor spoke against Barack Obama wanting to know why he was silent and why he wasn’t president now. But pointed out when Georgia was attacked by Russian, Obama spoke on that issue against Russia. That Obama doesn’t seem to represent “Change”.  

And that “President Obama, despite all he said on television, that is illegal.  That is immoral. That is inhuman. And reason for him to make a decision now.”  And additionally said that Obama is a subservient to the current Administration. 

[Can be seen and heard in the first video below.  Obama has in the past stated that Israel has the right to defend itself.  And obviously, these protestors want the United States to start a war with Israel.  NOT GONNA HAPPEN.  If these people want help to defend Gaza, then they can just take the next plane over there, and join Hamas.  But instead, they choose to stay safely here, and whine, instead of paying homage to their country, and serve the country they seem to show more allegiance to than the United States.]

And remember ladies, gentlemen and kiddies, I’m not Jewish, I’m not Muslim, and I’m not Christian.  I don’t look at a person by their sex, their race or their religion.  I look at a person by their actions.  And all I see are anti-Israeli hypocrites in these protests.  It was okay when Hamas was sending rockets across the border and killing civilians and children in Israel.  It was okay when bombs were set off near schools and school buses in Israel.  But now, the tables turned, and the bullied becomes the bully.  An eye for an eye.

Brian Becker Says US Guilty of War Crimes [Not The ANSWER Again…]

Brain Becker is the Director of ANSWER and the International Action Center.  He is a member of the Secretariat of the World Workers Party of the United States, a socialist organization.

ANSWER is suppose to be an anti-war, anti-racism, anti-terrorist, anti-imperialist organization however, they have been accused of serious anti-Semitism in the past, with some serious Jew bashing, chants of support for Hezbolla and Nazi flag waving at previous demonstrations.  And they seem to be a supporter of terrorist groups such as Hamas.

If they were a true anti-war organization, then why are they not protesting against BOTH Israel and  Hamas from sending rockets on a daily basis across the border into Israel killing innocent civilians.  But instead, they choose to only protest Israel.  This makes them guilty of anti-Semitism.

This week, ANSWER organized over 50 protests in the United States alone, which I blogged about a few days ago.   Just take a look at how “peaceful” and “modest” many were at these protests.

But at one on Friday in Washington , with only about 400 people showing up of a city that has a population of nearly 600,000 (0.06% of the population), in front of the Israeli Embassy, Brian Becker made a few statements about the United States. 

These crimes could not be committed [against Gaza by Israel] and would not be committed without the explicit consent and support and financing provided by the Bush Administration.  And so in that sense we are here to say, that this is a US backed Israeli atrocity and justice demands that the United States Government cut all aid to Israel today, otherwise and because of it the US is guilty of war crimes too. 

Interesting how he fails to mention that Bush just gave $85 million over to the UN for Gaza and the West Bank on December 30th, the most anyone in the world has given since the bombing.
