Yes, a group called the Black Foot Soldiers Movement, which is an offshoot of the Nation of Islam has declared Maurice Clemmons a hero and martyr.There is so much hatred in the world today for no reason at all and yes the majority of the media will not report on it. After all it isn't politically correct to say that these people have any hatred.

Does anyone think there is anyone in law enforcement investgating these groups with the intent to stop them?  We hear more and things each day that seem not right to us, yet the media only blames the tea party marchers which are  peaceful  American's fighting backing against polices of this leadership,  not against  a certain race of people.

Muslim groups lose 'lawfare' battle
Islamic leaders employ U.S. legal system to silence journalist

A group of Islamic organizations has lost another battle in its "lawfare" against freedom of speech across the nation with the rejection by the Texas Supreme Court of a demand that it review the writings of an Internet journalist.

The state's highest court rejected a petition submitted by the Muslims to review a ruling from the 2nd District Court of Appeals that dismissed a defamation lawsuit brought against Internet journalist Joe Kaufman.

As WND reported, Kaufman wrote an article for the online FrontPage Magazine exposing terrorist connections in two American Muslim groups. He then was sued by a swarm of Islamic interests, none of which were even mentioned in the article.

The lawsuit technique is called by some "legal jihad" or "Islamist lawfare." The Thomas More Law Center, which is representing Kaufman in the lawsuit, explained Muslim advocates are using the strategy to bully online journalists into silence.

"It is gratifying to see a courageous citizen like Joe Kaufman withstand the legal intimidation of a well-financed lawsuit aimed at shutting down his right to speak out against the threats of radical Islam," said Richard Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center.

Madhi Bray, executive director of the Muslim American Freedom Foundation, a political arm of the Muslim American Society in Dallas, called on his audience to "lawyer up" and fund additional cases, Thompson explained.

The case against Kaufman is an example of Muslim groups using American laws and its legal system to silence critics and promote the Islamic agenda in America, said Thompson.

A similar case has been filed over the publication of the book "Muslim Mafia," which documents exhaustively Islamic subversion of America through the Council on American-Islamic Relations and related groups spawned by the international Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of al-Qaida and Hamas.

The book is the product of a daring six-month undercover operation by three young investigators who served as CAIR interns.

In the Texas dispute, the Thomas More Law Center has worked with Texas attorney Thomas S. Brandon Jr. and Los Angeles attorneys William Becker Jr. and Manuel S. Klausner.

As WND reported, Kaufman's troubles began in 2007 when he wrote the article criticizing two Islamic groups for hosting a "Muslim Family Day" at Six Flags over Texas, a Dallas-area amusement park. The Islamic Circle of North America and the Islamic Association of North Texas, Kaufman revealed, funneled money to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and al-Qaida.

"While using images of cartoon characters and sponsoring events at amusement parks may seem innocuous, the danger that the Islamic Circle of North America poses to the United States, Canada and others is clear," Kaufman wrote. "As a faction of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization looks to impose Islam on Western society, and as a donor to a terrorist organization, the group is a willing participant in the act of violence."

And while neither the ICNA nor the IANT claimed libel, seven other Muslim organizations – the Islamic Society of Arlington, Texas, Islamic Center of Irving, DFW Islamic Educational Center, Inc., Dar Elsalam Islamic Center, Al Hedayah Islamic Center, Islamic Association of Tarrant County and Muslim American Society of Dallas – cried foul, bringing the defamation suit against Kaufman.

Thompson described the legal claims as "frivolous" and said it is "an example of the legal jihad being waged by radical Islamic organizations throughout our nation."

"These lawsuits are aimed at stifling the free speech rights of Americans who dare to expose their agenda. They intentionally file lawsuits to intimidate reporters who seek to expose their agenda. By making it costly to defend against their lawsuits, they hope journalists will refrain from writing about the threat to our nation," he said.

The organizations suing Kaufman also asked the court to deny him certain legal protections granted to traditional journalists, claiming that as an Internet writer, his right to seek a quick and inexpensive dismissal of the case didn't apply.

The case set up a battle, not only between Islamic advocates and opponents who question their political connections, but also between organizations in the burgeoning field of Internet journalism that often investigate stories the mainstream media ignores.

A ruling from a three-judge panel of the Texas Second Court of Appeals found that not only did the Muslim organizations have no basis for claiming defamation – since Kaufman didn't name or point to them in his article – it also declared online journalists merit the same status and legal protections their more traditional media peers enjoy.

The opinion of the court, written by Justice Terrie Livingston, overturned a lower court's denial of Kaufmann's motion to dismiss the libel claim before a time-consuming and expensive trial.

Listing seven different reasons for the court's decision, Justice Livingston wrote, "We conclude that an Internet author's status as a member of the electronic media should be adjudged by the same principles that courts should use to determine the author's status under more traditional media."

Furthermore, the court ruled, the Muslim organizations' contention that an Internet author could "never" qualify as a member of the media "would make as little sense as an inverse rule that a print author (such as someone distributing their own photocopied musings) would always qualify as such."

The full appellate court also affirmed the decision. The Texas Supreme Court's decision means it's the third straight strike for the plaintiffs in the case. Thomas More said the only remaining appellate option left appears to be a claim submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court.

More proof of where obama's loyalties lie and the more reason we need to ensure that our Presidents are natural born citizens.

Obama allows radical leader into U.S.
Grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder believes Islam should rule world

 A Victory for the Muslim Brotherhood
The Obama administration allows Tariq Ramadan to travel to the U.S.

In a controversial move, the Obama administration has decided to lift Tariq Ramadan’s ban from the United States. Who is Tariq Ramadan? By birth, he is the grandson of Hassan al Banna – the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). By word and deed, he is today a leading member of the European branch of the MB.

The MB is the mother organization for some of the terrorist groups that became part of al Qaeda’s core, including Ayman al Zawahiri’s Egyptian Islamic Jihad. Osama bin Laden himself was first wooed to the dark side by Muslim Brothers teaching in Saudi Arabia. The MB has also spawned other hardcore jihadist organizations, including Hamas. While the MB’s descendents have publicly disagreed over tactics at times (for example, Zawahiri has taken issue with Hamas’s participation in Palestinian elections), they still share the same long-term strategic vision: the re-establishment of an Islamic Caliphate capable of ruling the Muslim world and challenging the West.

And that is what Tariq Ramadan believes in too. At the Counterterrorism Blog and on his own website, Douglas Farah explains:

 

    As noted in this extensive review of "Brother Tarik: The Doublespeak of Tarik Ramadan," by French journalist Caroline Fourest, the definitive look at Ramadan's cannon, he is intent on saying one thing to Western audiences while something else to his followers. They often do not match up.

    This is typical of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is eager to use the freedoms that would never exist under the caliphate is so desires to create, in order to promote its totalitarian vision. It demands the right to be heard while being unequivocal in its unwillingness to view as equal anyone who does not embrace its view radical Islamism. While it is willing to use the democratic process to achieve its goals, often putting it at odds with militantly violent groups such as al Qaeda, in the end the Brotherhood and Osama bin Laden share an identical vision of what the world should look like under Allah's rule.

    In keeping with this, Ramadan's choice of language is also interesting (al Qaeda attacks are "interventions," jihad is entirely peaceful, Anwar Sadat was not assassinated by the Muslim Brotherhood but "executed," etc.) His numerous lies have been exposed (sic) exposed, his refusal to condemn stoning as a death sentence well documented and his convenient belief that only Muslims can understand the Koran has been rehashed.

 

Stephen Schwartz also made a persuasive case for upholding the ban on Ramadan last year.

Muslim Leaders Say U.S. Pilot Refused to Fly With Them Onboard
AP

NASHVILLE, Tennessee -- Two Muslim religious leaders say they were asked to leave a commercial airliner in Memphis on Friday and were told it was because the pilot refused to fly with them aboard.

Masudur Rahman, who is also an adjunct instructor of Arabic at the University of Memphis, said by phone from the terminal at Memphis International Airport that he and another imam had already been allowed to board their Delta Connection flight to Charlotte, North Carolina before they were asked to get off the plane.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Jon Allen in Atlanta confirmed the incident and said it was not initiated by that agency.

A Delta Air Lines spokeswoman said the flight was operated by Atlantic Southeast Airlines, which is also based in Atlanta.

"We take security and safety very seriously and the event is currently under investigation," Atlantic Southeast spokesman Jarek Beem said Friday evening.

Both passengers are Memphis-area residents. Rahman said he was dressed in traditional Indian clothing and his traveling companion was dressed in Arab garb, including traditional headgear.

Rahman said he and Mohamed Zaghloul, of the Islamic Association of Greater Memphis, were cleared by security agents and boarded the plane for an 8:40 a.m. departure.

The aircraft pulled away from the gate, but the pilot then announced the plane must return, Rahman said. When it did, the imams were asked to go back to the boarding gate where Rahman said they were told the pilot was refusing to accept them because some other passengers could be uncomfortable.

Rahman said Delta officials talked with the pilot for more than a half-hour, but he still refused.

The men were taken to a lounge and booked on a later flight. Beem said they flew on to Charlotte later Friday.

"We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused," Beem said.

The men contacted the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil rights and advocacy group in Washington, D.C.

"It's racism and bias because of our religion and appearance and because of misinformation about our religion." Rahman said. "If they understood Islam, they wouldn't do this."

He said a Delta manager apologized for the pilot's actions, but that he and Zaghloul never spoke directly with the pilot.

Ibrahim Hooper, of the American-Islamic organization, said the group will follow up with the airline and with the TSA to help ensure such incidents do not continue to occur.

Hooper said airline officials at Memphis tried to resolve the situation, but the pilot refused.

'Son of Hamas' Friend or Foe?
israelnationalnews.com

Walid Shoebat, a former Muslim terrorist who now supports Israel, has accused former Shin Bet agent Mosab Hasan Yousef, author of "Son of Hamas," of duping his Western audience. Yousef denies the accusations.

Shoebat and Yousef are both former Muslims who converted to Christianity. Yousef became a celebrity when he wrote his book, which detailed how he assisted Israeli agents against Hamas. As the son of a high-ranking Hamas official, he had access to real-time information that helped the Shin Bet nab numerous wanted terrorists and saved many Israeli lives.

However, Shoebat - a noted author and commentator on the Middle East - claims in an article on hos website that Yousef "has since revealed himself to be more double agent than turncoat."

"Mosab did not convert to what the West would recognize as Christianity, but to a fiery, Palestinian brand of the faith that is vehemently anti-Israel," he writes.

Shoebat uses as evidence two videotapes of interviews Mosab granted to Arabic television channels.

Speaking on Al-Arabiya, Mosab said: "During my tours in universities and even churches, I found the real support for Israel stems from the church in the West. … We need to understand the difference between “revenge” and “resistance” and once the Palestinians do, we will have our victory against Israel. Israel is the problem and as an occupation it needs to end. … There are many ways to do this besides the cowardly explosive operations."

He adds that he "suffered under all the problems of murder and the criminal operations that were carried out by the Israeli occupation against my people, my family, myself, and against humanity."

When Mosab was being interviewed on Christian-Arabic television station Al Hayat, the presenter asked a caller what he would do if he were in Mosab’s position and could prevent dozens of school children from being killed by turning in a Hamas man to Israel. When the caller vacillated, Mosab spoke:

If I was in your shoes, you should not report it to Israel. I do not encourage anyone to give information to Israel or collaborate with Israel. If anyone hears me right now and they are in relation to Israeli security I advise them to work for the interest of their own people — number one — and do not work with the [Israeli] enemy against the interest of our people. They should collaborate with the Palestinian Authority only.

Mosab's book is also "littered with factual errors and exaggerations," Shoebat accused. For example: "Mosab portrays the Jerusalem prison as a center for torture and persecution of Palestinians. The reality is much kinder; each inmate has his own bed and an in-the-cell shower as well. I know this — I was a prisoner there myself. We ate three full meals a day, and drank tea or sweet punch."

Shoebat warns: "Mosab is now touring churches to end Israel’s lifeline. Many Jews and Christians in the West are unable to determine friend from foe in the Mideast; they are not able to read what is said in Arabic. They must seek translations, and must be aware of double agents like Mosab."
