Ripping up the Koran (Q’ran / Quran)

September 11, 2010

Protesters rip pages from Quran in White House stunt

AFP, Sep 12, 2010, 12.52am IST

WASHINGTON: A small group of conservative Christians tore some pages from a Quran in a protest outside the White House on Saturday to denounce what they called the “charade of Islam” on the anniversary of 9/11.

“Part of why we’re doing that, please hear me: the charade that Islam is a peaceful religion must end,” said Randall Terry, a leading anti-abortion campaigner, and one of six people who took part in the protest.

Another activist, Andrew Beacham, read out a few Quran passages calling for hatred towards Christians and Jews, and then ripped those pages from an English paperback edition of the Islamic holy book.

He carefully put the torn pieces into a plastic bag, in order not to litter, and said: “The only reason I will not burn it at the White House is because to burn anything on the Capitol grounds is a felony.”

Beacham, who describes himself as a leader of the rightwing conservative Tea Party from Indiana, added: “The Twin Towers were taken down because of the Koran and other religious teachings.”

A few curious tourists stopped to watch the huddle outside the White House, while police took down the names of the participants but did not intervene.

The tiny protest came as the United States marked the somber ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks amid heightened tensions following a radical Florida pastor’s threat to burn the Quran.

After days of global outrage and protests, pastor Terry Jones, from Gainesville, said today: “We will definitely not burn the Quran, no.”

“Not today, not ever,” he told NBC television when pressed for his plans.

President Barack Obama told a deeply polarized America today that Islam was not the enemy as the 9/11 ceremonies took place.

“As Americans we will not and never will be at war with Islam. It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was al-Qaida, (a) sorry band of men, which perverts religion,” Obama said.

I’m Jewish.  I can’t say that people should listen to what I’m saying.   I believe that the current interpretation of Christians being pacifists is erroneous.  I have read the Old Testament many times and I have read the New Testament twice in it’s entirety and many more times just going back to it here and there.  I don’t profess to be a scholar.

All that being said, I believe that the majority of Pacifism comes from ONE specific passages.

38″You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.'[a] 39But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well.  — Matthew 5:38 Exodus 21:24; Lev. 24:20; Deut. 19:21

This interpretation is valid on an individual basis.  One individual to another individual.  It was not meant to encapsulate nations and cultures and ideologies and religions.  This passage is for individual relations.  It is created so that people could commune together and be able to forgive each other in the lives that they lead together.  They don’t need to be related but are entwined in the same community or location.  This passage should not and, really, does not apply to governments, organizations, religions, or cultures.  The proof that it doesn’t lies in Jesus’ own actions regarding these other entities.  He didn’t make peace with the pharisees, nor the tax collectors or the Romans.  He spoke out harshly against them.  He used all forms of expression to make people understand that those people were, in his point of view, WRONG or EVIL.  Although, he never physically hurt anyone, he did use his words to “condemn” others, which could have had physical repercussion.   The one thing that is clear is that HE did call EVIL exactly that.

He spoke CLEARLY.  Do you hear any leader speaking clearly.

Obama says, “Let me be clear”, yet he is anything but clear.

Jeremiah :

he command came to Jeremiah from Jehovah, “Stand in the door of the temple and speak this message: ‘Hear the word of Jehovah, all you people of Judah who enter these gates to worship him. Jehovah, the God of Israel, says: Change your ways and your deeds and I will let you live in this place. Trust not in misleading words, thinking, this is the temple of Jehovah. For if you really change your ways and your deeds, if you faithfully see that justice is done between a man and his neighbor, if you do no wrong to the foreigners who live among you, to the fatherless nor to the widow, and do not shed the blood of the innocent in this place nor follow other gods to your hurt, then I will let you stay in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, forever and ever.

The Prophet Jeremiah

The Prophet Jeremiah

“‘But now you are trusting in misleading words that are useless. Will you steal, murder, tell lies and offer sacrifice to Baal, and follow other gods whom you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house which bears my name and say, We are free to do all these shameful deeds? Is this my house, which bears my name, in your eyes a den of robbers? I myself have seen these shameful deeds,’ says Jehovah.

“‘Then go to my temple which was at Shiloh, where people used to worship me at first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel. Now because you have done all these deeds, and have paid no attention, although I spoke to you earnestly and often; and have not answered, although I called you, I will destroy the temple which bears my name, in which you trust, and the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I did at Shiloh. I will also send you from my sight, as I have sent away your relatives, even all the Northern Israelites.'”

When Jeremiah had finished speaking all that Jehovah had commanded him to say, the priests and prophets seized him and said, “You must die. Why have you said in the name of Jehovah that this temple shall be like Shiloh and this city shall be deserted, with no one living in it?” And all the people were gathered about Jeremiah in the temple of Jehovah.

But when the public officials of Judah heard of these things, they came up from the palace to the temple of Jehovah and held court at the entrance, at the new gate of the temple. Then the priests and the prophets said to the officials and to the people, “This man should be put to death, for he has prophesied against this city as you have heard with your own ears.” But Jeremiah answered the officials and all the people, “It was Jehovah who sent me to prophesy against this temple and city all that you have heard. Now therefore change your ways and your deeds and listen to Jehovah your God; and he will not do the evil things that he has threatened to do to you. But as for me, see, I am in your power; do to me as you think right and proper. Only remember that, if you put me to death, you will bring upon yourselves and upon this city and upon its inhabitants guilt for shedding innocent blood, for Jehovah has indeed sent me to you to tell you all these things.”

Then the officials and all the people said to the priests and to the prophets, “This man does not deserve to die, for he has spoken to us in the name of Jehovah our God.” Certain of the elders of the land rose and said to the assembly of the people, “Micah prophesied in the days when Hezekiah ruled over Judah, and said to the people of Judah, ‘Jehovah of hosts says:

“Zion shall be ploughed as a field,
Jerusalem shall become a ruin,
The temple-mount an overgrown hill.”‘

“Did Hezekiah and the people of Judah put him to death? Did they not rather fear Jehovah and ask him to forgive them, so that he did not do the evil things that he had threatened to do to them? But we are in danger of doing great harm to ourselves?”

G-d doesn’t WANT us to remain silent and passive when it’s HIS commandments that are being broken.

Terrorists who kill innocent people, FGM, Multiple wives (Jews don’t have multiple wives – in the old testament that was allowed but in practice this is no longer acceptable.  Divorce is allowed, but it’s not as easy.  The legalities are similar to that of the legal divorces here), stonings,  and beheadings.  Other than the violent, bloody and horrid aspects of Islam there are other issues:  foreigners are not accepted and this is dangerous, because that is what makes Islam EXCLUSIONARY.  It is INTOLERANT.

To Accept intolerance is to become intolerant.

Intolerance is negative.  Tolerance is positve.  To tolerate intolerance equals EVIL.

To NOT tolerate INTOLERANCE is GOOD.  It negates intolerance.

“I am your GOD” —- The FIRST COMMANDMENT

To not keep his commandments is to NOT have G-d as your ideology.   Islam breaks with almost all the commandments.  Islam is not following the g-d of Israel or the Christians.

G-d is LOVE

What is LOVE?

Is it love if only one person loves the other in a romantic relationship?

A mother has unconditional love for her child, but that love INCLUDES discipline.

Love requires HONOR.  It is RECIPROCAL.

Pr Obama 911 Pentagon day of remembrance, posted with vodpod

America ‘will never be at war with Islam’, says Barack Obama on 9/11 anniversary:

Published: Saturday, Sep 11, 2010, 18:02 IST | Updated: Saturday, Sep 11, 2010, 20:46 IST
Place: Washington, DC | Agency: ANI
As he led Americans in remembering the victims of the 9/11 attacks, President Barack Obama today pledged that the US will “never be at war” with Islam as it was dreaded terror group al-Qaeda which attacked the country, not a religion.

Addressing fellow citizens on the heels of a Florida pastor threatening to burn copies of Koran and the controversy surrounding plans to build a mosque near the Ground Zero,
Obama said the terrorist elements may seek to spark conflict
between different faiths. The pastor has since abandoned the plans.

“But as Americans we are not — and never will be — at war with Islam.It was not a religion that attacked us that September day — it was al-Qaeda, a sorry band of men which perverts religion,” Obama said in his address from Pentagon, one of the sites of the attacks.

He also vowed to keep the nation safe come what may and remembered the victims of the terrorist attacks in New York, Pentagon and Pennsylvania that killed more than 3,000 people.

“For our nation, this is a day of remembrance, a day of reflection, and — with God’s grace — a day of unity and renewal,” Obama said as he paid a visit to hallowed ground at the Pentagon and laid a wreath.

The main function was held at the Ground Zero site in New York City, attended by the vice-president Joe Biden.

First Lady, Mitchell Obama and her predecessor Laura Bush, attended a remembrance ceremony in Pennsylvania.

Obama said, “Today, in Afghanistan and beyond, we have gone on the offensive and struck major blows against al-Qaeda and its allies.We will do what is necessary to protect our country, and we honour all those who serve to keep us safe.”

“They may seek to strike fear in us, but they are no match for our resilience.We do not succumb to fear, nor will we squander the optimism that has always defined us as a people,” the US president said.

“The perpetrators of this evil act didn’t simply attack America; they attacked the very idea of America itself — all that we stand for and represent in the world,” Obama said in his remarks.

“They (terrorists) may seek to exploit our freedoms, but we will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust.

“They may wish to drive us apart, but we will not give in to theirhatred and prejudice,” Obama said.

He said as America condemns intolerance and extremism abroad, its citizens should stay true to its traditions here at home as a diverse and tolerant nation.

“We champion the rights of every American, including the right to worship as one chooses — as service members and civilians from many faiths do just steps from here, at the very spot where the terrorists struck this building,” he said.

In New York, vice-president Joe Biden read a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. “Build today, then strong and sure, With a firm and ample base; And ascending and secure. Shall tomorrow find its place.”

Independence Day – The Constitution that was paid for in BLOOD and sanctified on the 4th of JULY

July 4, 2010

Will there be a need for RECONSECRATION of the fight for independence from an Oppressive tyranny?

The Oligarchy of Tyranny that we currently suffer, as a people, can only be tempered with short reprieves of Liberty. Those can not sustain a nation for long and a more permanent state of equilibrium will need to be settled upon.  The tyrant will never relinquish his hold on the reins of control.  Shrinking the government is not the natural order of government.  The beast can never be convinced to starve itself and it will never be find the will to commit hari kari.

The war of INDEPENDENCE was not fought on the grounds of one tax or another and it was not fought over MONEY and TAX alone.  It had to do with LIBERTY.  All of the points within the constitution were the reasons.  Freedom of Speech, freedom to bare arms (which inherently means the freedom to secede – which the current government chooses to question), but along with freedoms come responsibilities.  This is what the Constitution of this Country chooses to formulate with this document.  There are other documents, and they detail the formation of the government.  And all these documents ALL together, did not amount to much more than short book.

The Constitution for the United States:

Here is the complete text of the U.S. Constitution. The original spelling and capitalization have been retained.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Article I

No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.

The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.

Neither House, during the Session of Congress, shall, without the Consent of the other, adjourn for more than three days, nor to any other Place than that in which the two Houses shall be sitting.

Section 6. The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.

No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time: and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office.

Section 7. All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill.

Chicago – 4th of July – 47th ISNA Convention on Independence day? Congressmen Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and Andre Carson of Indiana are expected speakers for the crowed of 35,000 Muslims

June 26, 2010

What’s on your agenda for Independence Day?

Well.  I guess the Muslims are looking for another Independence.

Your not going to see this on the news.  I wonder why?  This many people gathering for the same cause and 2 government officials there.  I would think that it would be worthy of notoriety

Illinois: 35,000 to Attend Islamic Convention~ 4Th of July Weekend:

Muslims are continually trying to unify the ummah,and they are doing it right in our own backyard. There are at least two Islamic conventions taking place in America on the 4Th of July weekend that I know of. One is being held by the Muslim Congress organization, in Florida. The second is this mega-Muslim convention that is expected to draw approximately 35,000 people. It is entitled the “47Th annual Islamic Society of North America Convention”, and it is being held at the Rosemont Convention Centre, in Rosemont Illinois.

Some of this year’s speakers are Muslim Congressmen Keith Ellison of Minnesota, and Andre Carson of Indiana. Other notable speakers are Ibrahim Hooper, co founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Please make no mistake of CAIR’s mission.

Omar Ahmad
Co-Founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations
President and CEO of Silicon Expert Technologies.
Former Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) Officer.

“Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam … Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the
only accepted religion on Earth.”

Then there is Brooklyn NY Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who in the past made the following statement.

“…And [Allah] declared ‘Whoever is at war with my friends, I declare war on them.’ … Your true friend is Allah, the messenger, and those who believe…. Hear what I’m telling you well. The Americans are not your friends … The Canadians are not your friends … The Europeans are not your friends. Your friend is Allah, the Messenger and those who believe. These people will never be satisfied with you until you follow their religion …”

Ex-CAIR chairman Parvez Ahmed, who is now on the theJacksonville (Florida) Human Rights Commission.

Obama’s Islamist Tariq “It’s time not to speak about integrating,…” Ramadan.

That is some crowd that our Muslim Congressmen do not mind associating with. Of course no Islamic convention of this size can be complete, without a traitor to Christianity speaking. This traitor is Pastor Rick Warren. The conference is so huge, that there are 300 speakers. So I will stop here.

In another effort to unite Muslims they are holding matrimonial banquet, just like the Masjid Annur‎ Islamic Center located at 6990 65th St, Sacramento CA‎, is holding today and tomorrow.

Welcome to the ISNA Matrimonial Banquet!

ISNA matrimonial banquets will be hosted at the 47th annual ISNA convention in Rosemont, IL on Saturday July 3rd and Sunday July 4th, 2010. These events will provide you an opportunity to meet and interact with other participants in a faster, yet Islamic way.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “Nikah (marriage) is my Sunnah”. He also said, “When a man marries, he has fulfilled half of his religion, so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half”. Our mission is to help Muslim singles in taking the first step towards fulfilling this Sunnah.

We are committed in bringing Muslim singles together in accordance with the Islamic principles and guidance. Our unique event facilitates the participants to meet each other in a relaxed and information environment.

You have the option to attend one or both banquets.Because of short rotation time among groups, we ask you to prepare in advance. Reflect on questions that matter to you and provide information to others about you. Many participants find it effective to carry business cards with their contact information. We encourage casual attire for your comfort. Men tend to wear dress pants and a shirt or blazer; women tend to wear skirts, dresses, or cultural clothing

It just so happens that I read an article this morning which stated that Muslims consider piety, the most important criteria when looking for a marriage partner.

One of the topics they spoke about at last year’s convention was Muslims using our democracy, “to become a force to be reckoned with” in American policy.

If you still think that Muslims are not here to takeover, you are either not paying enough attention to this subject, or you are in denial. Either way, for the sake of our families future generations, please wake up.

From one of the comments:

Carson….

Andre Carson is a convert to Islam and affiliated with Jew-bashing black separatist Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. In fact, Farrakhan gave the eulolgy at Carson’s grandmother’s funeral in 2007. He is also a member of a radical Nur Allah Islamic Center in Indianapolis deemed one of the ‘axis’ of centers created by the Muslim Brotherhood to further Islam in every US city.

Today he is one two Muslim senators in the US Congress, the other being Keith Ellison of Minnesota.

One of Carsons biggest fundraisers is Johari Abdul-Malik (JAM).
JAM was the ‘Director of Outreach’ at the Dar al Hijrah Islamic Cnter in Falls Church, VA. A video in 2001 has him tell us
“I am gonna teach you now. You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work. You can blow up power supplies..the water supply you can do all forms of sabotage….”

Thankfully, that is not Abdul-Malik’s only job. He is the DIRECTOR of the Nationl Association of Muslim Chaplains!!!

Figure it out, people. They mean war, while we’re still watching reruns of the Dukes of Hazard…

my comment:

And “our President” has BBQ’s with these people?  Funny how the GAZA flotilla and the Gulf OIL catastrophe happened at that same time.
