9 -11 Remembered: The Ground Zero Mosque & Imam Rauf’s Veiled Threat to America

The Imam is trying to tell us that the Militants won on 9-11. That he cannot take into consideration tha familes of the 2700 who died at Ground Zero … that we should only consider … and fear … the feelings of the militants … I think not … but you decide … and then let Mayor Bloomberg and the Imam know and most importantly, VOTE IN NOVEMBER … 

Later, that same day …

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf of Ground Zero mosque says plan will move forward in op/ed
 
After weeks of silence, the imam at the center of a controversy over building a mosque near Ground Zero is speaking out. His message is clear: the plan will move forward.

In a new op-ed piece that echoes a similar sentiments he wrote about in May for the Daily News, Feisal Abdul Rauf said he was “awed by how inflamed and emotional” the issue has become.

Rauf stressed in the New York Times op-ed on Wednesday that he was proceeding with the project with the support of the downtown community and officials like President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg—pointing out that Obama is Christian and Bloomberg is Jewish …..

Opponents of the project, including former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), have said the mosque should be built further away from where Islamic extremists destroyed the World Trade Center and killed nearly 2,800 people.

SECURE BORDERS: Obama Administration – Fails To Address Home Grown Terrorist Issue, Reports 9-11 Commission Authors

Report: US must deal with domestic radical problem

WASHINGTON – The U.S. was slow to take seriously the threat posed by homegrown radicals and the government has failed to put systems in place to deal with the growing phenomenon, according to a new report compiled by the former heads of the Sept. 11 Commission.

The report says U.S. authorities failed to realize that Somali-American youths traveling from Minnesota to Mogadishu in 2008 to join extremists was not an isolated issue. Instead, the movement was one among several instances of a broader, more diverse threat that has surfaced across the country.

“Our long-held belief that homegrown terrorism couldn’t happen here has thus created a situation where we are today stumbling blindly through the legal, operational and organizational minefield of countering terrorist radicalization and recruitment occurring in the United States,” said the report, which was obtained by The Associated Press.

As a result, there is still no federal agency specifically charged with identifying radicalization or working to prevent terrorist recruitment of U.S. citizens and residents, said the report, slated to be released Friday by the Washington-based Bipartisan Policy Center’s National Security Preparedness Group.

The group, headed by former 9-11 commission leaders Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton, laid out a detailed description of domestic terror incidents ranging from the Fort Hood, Texas, shooting spree and the attempted Christmas Day airliner attack in late 2009 to last May’s botched truck bombing in New York’s Times Square.

Over the past year, terrorism experts and government officials have warned of the threat posed by homegrown radicals, saying terror recruits who go abroad could return to the U.S. to carry out attacks.

But the U.S., the group said, should have learned earlier from Britain’s experience. Prior to the 2005 London suicide bombings, the British believed that Muslims there were better integrated, educated and wealthier than their counterparts elsewhere.

Similarly, the U.S. believed that its melting pot of nationalities and religions would protect it from internal radical strife, the report said.

The terrorists, said the report, may have discovered America’s “Achilles’ heel in that we currently have no strategy to counter the type of threat posed by homegrown terrorists and other radicalized recruits.”

The report also points to an “Americanization” of the leadership of al-Qaida and its allied groups, noting that radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who had links with suspects in the failed Times Square bombing and the Fort Hood shootings, grew up in New Mexico. And Chicagoan David Headley played a role in scoping the targets for the Lashkar-e-Taiba attacks on Mumbai in late 2008 that killed more than 160.

Abroad, Al-Qaida, its affiliates and other extremist groups have splintered and spread, seeking safe havens in undergoverned areas of Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and places in North and East Africa. That diversified threat has intensified as militants reach out to potential recruits through the Internet.

Assessing future threats, the report lists potential future domestic targets, including passenger jets, western or American hotel chains, Jewish or Israeli sites and U.S. soldiers, even at their own bases in America.

And it also warns that it is no longer wise to believe that American extremists will not resort to suicide bombings. As an example they point to Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, who has been charged with killing 13 people and wounding 32 in last year’s shootings at Fort Hood, saying he had written about suicide operations in e-mails, and that his attack appeared to be one.

McAuleys World:

First we must secure our borders … Then Prsident Obama could always schedule a “beer summit” with the Countries enemies …. or maybe he can schedule a “beer sunnit” with America’s original domestic terrorists, those like Bill Ayers who have already participated in random, violent and lethal attacks on American facilities, motivated by hatred and blind rage …. then again, President Obama has had lots of “beer summits” with Ayers … while Ayers helped him plan his early political campaigns ….

“Ayers, born in 1944, was raised in a Chicago suburb. He became active in the anti-war leftist group, Students for a Democratic Society, while he was a student at the University of Michigan in the mid- 1960s. In 1969, Ayers helped lead a group that splintered off from SDS, Weatherman (known as the Weathermen). The group set off a number of bombs against U.S. targets in the early 1970s, earning it the label of “domestic terrorist organization” from the FBI.”

Notable Attacks:

  • 1970: Bombing of New York City Police Headquarters
  • 1971: Bombing of U.S. Capitol Building
  • 1972: Bombing of Pentagon

    On the SDS, Communism and Anarcho-Communists: An internal battle of SDS ideology. http://www.lewrockwell.com/rothbard/rothbard122.html

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Rudd

    “in March 1970 following the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, an incident in which three members of the organization died when an explosive device, intended for a servicemen’s ball, detonated prematurely. Among the dead were Terry Robbins, Diana Oughton, and Ted Gold … and according to some Weatherman members like Bill Ayers, build an underground revolutionary movement. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Rudd

    The new organization was intent on overthrowing the government through violent actions. Spreading communism was a priority for the members of Weather, as when Rudd told other members of SDS, “ Don’t be timid about telling people we’re Communist. Don’t deny it, be proud of it.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Rudd

    Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) was founded by Aryeh Neier (Director of the socialist League for Industrial Democracy) in 1960. Its principles were elaborated by Tom Hayden in the Port Huron Statement of 1962, which adopted the position of “anti-anti-Communism,” refusing to support the West in the Cold War. What began as a movement to involve the largest possible number of American students in the democratic processes had become by 1969, as a contemporaneous FBI memo summarizes, “an organization totally dedicated to the destruction of American society…In the span of seven years, the SDS had evolved into a hard line Marxist-Leninist-Maoist organization dedicated to the destruction of Western democratic traditions and ideals.”

    Several prominent SDS members organized Progressives for Obama in March of 2008. Among the organizers are Carl Davidson, Mark Rudd, and Todd Gitlin; while several Klonsky family members are represented, Mike Klonsky is conspicuously absent from the signers. http://www.conservapedia.com/Students_for_a_Democratic_Society

    SDS was an important subject within the Soviet directed and funded Communist Party USA (CPUSA) in early 1968.

    By 1974 Maoism had supplanted the Soviet ideological doctrine guiding many New Left groups willing to use violence to achieve socialist revolution. In Prairie Fire, Ayers, Dohrn and Jeff Jones identified the WUO primary strategy on the side of Maoist thought in the following way,

    The Chinese Revolution is a wonderful development in the advance of humanity. Mao Tse-tung and the Chinese Communist Party have made many important breakthroughs in developing revolutionary strategy in the semi-feudal, semi-colonial world. The thought common to Mao and Ho Chi-minh – that the central revolutionary force of our time is the oppressed nations and peoples of the world leading the liberation struggle against imperialism – is the guiding strategic principle of this era.”

    Mao Zedong: Mao remains a controversial figure to this day, with a contentious and ever-evolving legacy. He is officially held in high regard in China as a great revolutionary, political strategist, military mastermind, and savior of the nation. Conversely, Mao’s social-political programs, such as the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, are blamed for costing millions of lives, causing severe famine and damage to the culture, society and economy of China. Mao’s policies and political purges from 1949 to 1976 are widely believed to have caused the deaths of between 40 to 70 million people. Since Deng Xiaoping assumed power in 1978, many Maoist policies have been abandoned in favour of economic reforms.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mao_Zedong

    Mao was killing between 40 to 70 million of his own people at precisely the time AYERS and SDS adopted Ma0ist’s ideology …

    Mao as a supporter of human right’s policies … Mao as a supporter of civil rights …. what a crock!

    Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf  – Bridge Builder or Defender of the Islamic Faith – Extremists and Non-extremist alike

    The Main Stream Media is at it again … blindly supporting Obama’s twisted logic ….

    How many times have you heard the various Main Stream Media Pundits parrot the following statement, “Everyone agrees there is a “Constitutional Right” to build a Mosque at Ground Zero…

    [If you are not familiar with the “Ground Zero memorial Park see: Rise of Freedom: Bringing Life to Ground Zero – First Trees for Ground Zero Memorial Park Start Journey ]

    Being a bit of a Constitutional buff, I’d think someone in the MSM would ask the Constitutional Law Instructor in Chief where that “right” is enumerated in our Constitution. (That is correct, he was never a “Professor” – the correct term for his position was “lecturer”).

    St Nicholas Church Moments Before Collapse OF WTC

    Look it up for yourself, there is no such guarantee in the Constitution. Not even if the “church” owns the property as the President suggested and if the “church” meets and follows all local laws and ordinances.

    If there were a Constitutional Right to build a house of worship, one might think that it would apply to all “houses of worship” equally … wouldn’t you … then again this is the Obama Administration and this Administration has a set of rules it applies like no other Administration in the history of the United States. 

     St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church 

     Let me introduce you to the Parish of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, located at 155 Cedar Street, in New York City. St Nicholas Church was founded in 1919 when 5 Greek families bought a local Tavern and it’s property to establish the St. Nicholas Parish. The families paid $25,000 for the property; a vast sum of money in 1919. The Parish served the local community continuously from 1919 until 9/11/2001 when, after the attack on the WTC, Tower #2 collapsed on the Church and obliterated it.

    http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/12/06/no-church-at-ground-zero-yet-faith-and-hope-persist/

    With this “magical” Constitutional right invoked for the Mosque, I’m confused as to why St. Nicholas hasn’t been “granted permission” to rebuild. Why do they need “permission” …. I thought it was a Constitutional right … http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/08/17/ground-zero-church-archdiocese-says-officials-forgot/

    This isn’t a “new” church … it was an existing Church …a Church with an 80 year history of serving the local community before 9/11.

    The Constitutional Right 

    What are they talking about … some mythical “freedom to build a house of  worship” … there is no such thing.   

    We are a Country of “limited rights” – we have “freedom of religion” , but you can’t stand and pray on the steps of the Supreme Court building … we have “Freedom of Speech” but you can’t sing the National Anthem on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial … “Freedom of Religion” but you can’t hold a prayer vigil in front of an abortion clinic … “Freedom of Religion”, but you can only take one wife at a time, doesn’t matter what your religion states… “Freedom of Speech”, but you can’t shout “fire” in a crowded movie theatre … we are a Country of limited rights …

    Have you tried putting up a public Christmas display or singing a “Christmas Carol” at City Hall during Christmas Holiday?

    The Memorial Park at Ground Zero 

    The “memorial park” at ground zero is a “public cemetery’…  despite what the press may be trying to sell you … significant restrictions are imposed on structures and businesses around cemeteries … The Mosque will broadcast the “Muslim call to prayer” from speakers  5 times a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year …  a substantial burden to place on non-Muslims who wish to “worship” or “pay their respects” at Ground Zero … a Mosque can be located anywhere … Islamic terrorists created Ground Zero and Ground Zero cannot be moved …

    Islamic call to prayer

    The adhān (Arabic: ‎ Azan/Ezan is the Islamic call to prayer, recited by the muezzin. The root of the word is “to permit”, and another derivative of this word is “ear”.

    Adhan is called out by the muezzin in the mosque, sometimes from a minaret, five times a day, summoning Muslims for mandatory  (fard) prayers (salah).

    Map: Path Taken By Landing Gear Which Crashed Through the Roof Of Building To Be Replaced By Mosque - 1 Block From Ground Zero

    The main purpose behind the loud pronouncement of adhan five times a day in every mosque is to make available to everyone an easily intelligible summary of Islamic belief. It is intended to bring to the mind of every believer and non-believer the substance of Islamic beliefs, or its spiritual ideology. Loudspeakers are sometimes installed on minarets for the purpose. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adhan 

    The Islamic call to prayer is an act of proselytizing … an act of recruitment … an act or attempt to convert as a proselyte … the “call to prayer” is designed to do just that … it is the specific intent of “the call” …

    The United States has a proud history of allowing religious groups to proselytize … or recruit, however, the right to do so stops at the door of  another religions’ house of worship and at the front gate of any Memorial Garden … but I wouldn’t suggest you hold your breath waiting for the Obama Administration to send out the DOJ to enforce these restrictions on the proposed Mosque … just as I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for the DOJ to ask about the delay in granting St. Nicholas Church the right to rebuild …

    Excerpts from flight 91 Flight Recorder: The New York Times, April 12, 2006 By David Stout 

    “Ladies and gentlemen: here the captain,” a heavily accented voice begins over a constant crackle. “Please sit down, keep remaining seating. We have a bomb on board, so sit.”

    “No more! No more!” someone says in the background. “No, no, no, no…”

    “In the name of Allah, the most merciful, the most compassionate,” a hijacker says early on.

    “No, no, no, no…” someone says moments later.

    “Go ahead, lie down. Lie down. Down, down, down.”

    “No more,” someone says seconds later. “Please, please, please, ” someone says. “Please, please, don’t hurt me.”

    “I don’t want to die,” says one person, apparently a woman.

    “No, no. Down, down, down, down, down, down,” another voice says.

    “No, no, please.”

    Moments later, about six minutes after the plane was seized, a hijacker says in Arabic, “Everything is fine. I finished.”

    “Yes,” someone replies in Arabic.

    While it may never be certain what that exchange hinted, a chilling possibility was offered on Tuesday, when information was offered about the nearly 40 telephone calls that Flight 93 passengers attempted during the ordeal. Not all calls went through. One that did was from Marion Britton, a passenger, to a friend. Ms. Britton told her the plane had been hijacked.

    “Don’t worry,” the friend consoled. “They’ll probably take you to another country.”

    “Two passengers have had their throats cut,” Ms. Britton replied.

    The chant “Allah is the greatest!” is uttered nine times in Arabic, moments later, the jet crashes …

    At 9:35, a woman prosecutors identified as a flight attendant begs for her life.

    “I don’t want to die,” she pleads.

    “No, no, down, down,” a hijacker responds.

    “I don’t want to die. I don’t want to die,” she repeats.

    Loud female cries then are heard on the tape.

    “Everything is fine. I finished,” a hijacker says in Arabic…

    Inside the cockpit the hijackers decide to crash the plane. “Pull it down. Pull it down,” an Arabic voice says. The jetliner heads downward and rolls.

    “Allah is the greatest. Allah is the greatest!” one of the hijackers shouts over and over again.

    Japanese Officer Beheads Prisoner WWII

    Islam – Muslim Jihad / Japan – Shinto Militarism

     A deeper, more thorough understanding of Jihadism, can be obtained if one studies the religious pragmatism of Japan and the utilization of the Shinto religion by Japan’s “militarists” between the 17th and 19th centuries. http://www.spiegel.de/international/0,1518,474092-2,00.html

    To the Jihadist, the Prophet Mohammed’s words directs one’s actions … In Japan, the “Prophet” was the Japanese Emperor. In Japan the Emperor was God’s representative on earth …

    In Japan, the “faithful” preceded the Emperor shouting “Banzai”, “Banzai”, “Banzai” …. “Banzai” being a “prayer” that the Emperor live and reign 10,000 years … later “heroic imperial soldiers met their deaths crying “Tenno banzai” – “10,000 lives for the Tenno.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_thousand_years 

    I don’t believe the Japanese were promised virgins in the next life…         

    Al-Shebab Beheads 7 "Christian Spies"

    Not so long ago every American recognized the term “Banzai” as the term uttered by our Japanese foes in World War II as they launched suicidal charges against our land troops or crashed their planes on the decks of our Navy ships … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinto  suicide attacks by military personnel against military targets … not attacks against unarmed civilians …

    At the end of World War II, the Shinto religion lost its status as the “official” religion of Japan; however, the Shinto religion remained Japan’s largest. The Shinto religion is recognized in the United States and there are “Shinto Temples” located across the United States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Shinto_shrines_in_the_United_States

    No one would ever suggest that it would be appropriate to locate a Shinto Shrine, never mind that some mythical “Constitutional Right” existed to establish a “Shinto Shrine” on the shores of Pearl Harbor where the chant of “Banzai, Banzai, Banzai” would echo across the waters on a daily basis; the waters where so many American serviceman remain entombed.

    The Constitution – When Religious Beliefs Collide

    I want you to stop and imagine for a moment that the “Bosnian Killing Fields”, where 8,000 Muslims were murdered in cold blood, were located in upstate New York instead of Srebrenica. Next imagine that a Christian Group announced plans to build a Community Center and Church on the “Killing Fields”, you know, to help build bridges between the ‘groups” and that loud speakers would adorn the “Center” and broadcast the “Rosary” across the fields, five times a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year …. Who would be protesting that exercise of “Freedom of Religion” …. the permits to build would be denied outright, and the denial would be applauded not protested ….

    The Genocide In Dafur, Sudan – A Decade of Genocide By Islamic Extremists

    Read this excerpt from 10/10/2006…

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Two years have passed since then-Secretary of State Colin Powell reported to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that genocide was being committed in Darfur, Sudan. Samuel Totten awakes in the middle of the night sometimes and remembers the accounts of rape, torture and slayings that he documented while spending two weeks in 2004 at refugee camps in neighboring Chad.

    Despite Powell’s assessment, the international community has done little to stop the killing and brutalization or help the people of Darfur, Totten lamented. Government of Sudan troops and Arab militia known as Janjaweed attacked village after village of black Africanshttp://dailyheadlines.uark.edu/9402.htm

    Since 2003, the genocidal conflict in Darfur has devastated millions of non-combatant civilians and resulted in the death of at least 200,000 people. As of 2010, Sudan continues to direct its troops and proxy Janjaweed militias to systematically destroy the livelihoods of Darfuris by bombing and burning villages, looting economic resources, and murdering, raping, and torturing non-combatant civilians.

    NEW YORK – The Cordoba Initiative (CI), a leading global civil society organization promoting understanding between the Muslim world and the West, announced on Monday a major new initiative to help improve relations between the US and Sudan. “There is now an opportunity for the US and Sudan to fundamentally change their relationship,” said Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, Chairman of CI. “This will help each nation achieve its goals. It is also a way to build goodwill between the West and the Muslim world. http://theamericanmuslim.org/tam.php/features/articles/cordoba_initiative_unveils_new_push_in_sudan/

    The Imam should stop the political BS and admit that the genocide is taking place … The Nazi’s denied the genocide in WWII, the Bosnian’s denied the genocide until the mass graves were uncovered  (some even continued to deny the genocide after forensic analysis of the graves were completed) …. the genocide in Sudan will not stop until the Sudanese Government and its “defenders” and “supporters”, Imam Rauf included, admit that the genocide is taking place and demand that it stop … the best way to “create goodwill” is to stop the raping, torturing and murdering of black African villagers in their own villages… the first step to “goodwill” is to stop the atrocities, not deny their existence… 

    The Crisis in Dafur – Islamic Racism – The North/South Divide

    The New York Times (15 May 2004) said that many of the racist attitudes traditionally directed toward slaves have been redirected to the sedentary non-Arab  racist ideology plays an important part of the Genocide, the sharp distinctions between Arabs and Africans in the racially mixed Darfur region had not been drawn (as much) until the ideology of pan-Arabism that came out of the Libya made itself felt. Some of the nomadic sheiks of the region came to see themselves as the avatars of Arabism, the authentic representatives of their Bedouin origins. They foisted a racial label on a farming people whose way of life they simultaneously disdained and felt threatened by. Blacks in Sudan are seen as inferior to the Arabs, the racism, racial sentiments against non-Arabs have been used & manipulated by the central government. The Christian Science Monitor asserts that racism is at root of Sudan’s Darfur crisis, that reluctance to call it genocide perpetuates hypocrisy in Afro-Arab relations, “Arab militias is the racist, fundamentalist, and undemocratic Sudanese state”  those who call themselves Arabs point to Arab ancestors who arrived as traders both before and after the arrival of Islam, and who gradually converted local Sudanese to the Islamic faith. president Nimeiry of Sudan, said in 1969: “Sudan is the basis of the Arab thrust into the heart of Black Africa, the Arab civilizing mission.” This genocide has been described as an example of Arab racism at its worst.

    The Arab Gathering, a shadowy Nazi type brotherhood deeply embedded in the Bashir regime, preaches a doctrine of Arab supremacy and a Sudan “cleansed” of non-Arabs.  Der Spiegel wrote that the Sudanese regime uses tribal conflicts and Arab racism.

    Reread Imam Rauf’s “letters”, then reread the comments made by the NYT, the Christian Science Monitor and Der Spiegel … are they even referring to the same “conflict”… the same “Sudan” ….

    Janjaweeds

    The Janjaweed, a militia armed by the Sudanese government, are pastoral Arab tribesmen who have long despised the black African farmers who practice settled agriculture. They are described as “a grotesque mixture of the mafia and the Ku Klux Klan”, a journalist on CNN says. “These guys have a racist ideology that sees the Arab population as the supreme population that would like to see the subjugation of non-Arab peoples. They’re criminal racketeers that have been supported very directly by the government to wage the war against the people of Darfur.”, from PBS: “blatant racism and a political ideology known as “Arab supremacism” also fuel the Janjaweed’s agenda.” who “are cleaning the land of non-Arabs.”, the BBC: “Arab militias of a campaign of ethnic cleansing against non-Arab locals.”, the US State Department in 2005 report on Sudan’s Human Rights Practices : “The government continued to support the largely Arab nomad janjaweed militia”and that Darfurians were “threatened with death, and subjected to racial epithets during attacks.”, the attackers “call non-Arab Africans “abid” or slave, and zurga, which means Black, but is used as a racial slur.” There were reports (See: The Guardian 20 Jul, 2004) of Arab women singers complicit in rape, “While African women in Darfur were being raped by the Janjaweed militiamen, Arab women stood nearby and sang for joy.”   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darfur_conflict

    Imam Rauf, let us forget about “building goodwill”, let us get down to “brass tacks” … call the evil acts what they are … “evil”. Call the “evil speech” what it is, “evil”, and call for an end to the evil now …… don’t hesitate, don’t parse your words, don’t try to shift the blame … a moderate man does not turn a blind eye to evil … there is nothing moderate about denying evil nor is there moderation in defending the evil actions of others because they share your faith …

    Now Imam, that isn’t what you do … in every instance you place blame outside the pale of Islamic barbarism … the barbaric attack on the World Trade Center, the barbarism of genocide in Dafur, Sudan… different people, different continents … same barbarism ….

    Tell me Imam about the blood on the hands of the poor African villagers in Dafur, just how did they offend Islam … by being alive?

    Support the International Criminal Court: Justice Now for the Women and Girls of Darfur

    Thousands of girls and women have been raped and subjected to other forms of sexual violence in Darfur. Inquiries by the Prosecutor of the ICC identified “high numbers of…mass rapes and other forms of extremely serious gender violence”, and a U.N. Commission of Inquiry found that these abuses amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. However, authorities in Sudan have refused to comply with ICC requests or otherwise allow the Court to conduct investigations in Darfur.

    (The same date as the Imam’s letter in The American Muslim – What a stark contrast. The U.N. is about to announce the withdrawal of the “Dafur Peace Keepers” and all Imam Rauf can say is, ““There is now an opportunity for the US and Sudan to fundamentally change their relationship”.  From a historical context, the Imams statement reminds me of Adolf Hitler speaking to Neville Chamberlin before German Troops marched into the Sudeten Land. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neville_Chamberlain

    Next week, the UN Secretary-General’s report on the future of the United Nations Mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT) peacekeeping force in Eastern Chad will be released, outlining the withdrawal of peacekeeping troops in the Chad-Sudan border region (Dafur) visited by PHR researchers in 2008. The report  “Nowhere to Turn: Failure to Protect, Support and Assure Justice for Darfuri Women”, released by PHR in June 2009, outlined urgent human rights issues in Eastern Chad, including food insecurity, camp infrastructure, access to health and psychosocial care, and security for refugee families. Among the disturbing findings of our investigation was a 50% rate of rape or sexual assault reported by women interviewed by the PHR medical team.

    Darfuri women live ‘nightmare,’ Harvard-backed study says

    (CNN) — An American human rights group documenting widespread sexual violence against Darfuri women in Sudan and Chad has called for “vigorous prosecution of rape as a war crime.”

    Physicians for Human Rights, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, issued a report Sunday “documenting the scope and long-term impact of rape and other sexual violence” experienced by women who fled the war-torn Sudanese region of Darfur and now live as refugees in neighboring Chad.

    The report — titled “Nowhere To Turn: Failure To Protect, Support and Assure Justice for Darfuri Women” — is based on interviews with 88 female refugees living in Chad’s Farchana refugee camp. The study was done with the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.

    Obama offers $400 Million in Aid to Gaza – The Devil Will Be In the Details

    Obama offers $400 Million in Aid to Gaza – The Devil Will Be In the Details

    On Wednesday, June 10, 2010, during a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, President Obama offered $400 million in additional aid for the Gaza Strip. To be precise, it isn’t exactly clear whether the $400 million in aid is to be directed solely to the Gaza Strip or is, in fact, intended for the Government of the Palestinian Authority. (Both the Gaza Strip and the West Bank).

    Abbas is the President of the Palestinian Authority Government, headquartered in Ramallah on the West Bank, just 6 miles from Jerusalem.  Map of Israel, Gaza and West Bank – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:West_Bank_%26_Gaza_Map_2007_(Settlements).png

    The Palestinian Authority Government is the duly constituted Government of the Palestinian people. The Palestinian Authority Government was formed in conjunction with the peace treaty negotiated between the State of Israel and the PLO, negotiations which began in 1993 and continued through 1999.

    The PLO or Palestinian Liberation Organization had been the internationally recognized voice of the Palestinian People since it was granted “observer status” at the United Nations in 1972.

    In June 2007 the terrorist group HAMAS (A Farsi or Iranian acronym for the Islamic Resistance Party) seized control of the Gaza Strip in an attempted coup.  HAMAS had been formed in an attempt to stop or derail the Mid-East peace process started in 1993.

    http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/obama-offers-abbas-400m-in-extra-aid-for-gaza-in-flotilla-aftermath-1.295093

    Prior American Aid

    In 2008 – 2009 the U.S. provided $20.3 million in aid to the Gaza strip. In 2008 -2009 Gaza received a total of  $4.5 billion in international aid. President Obama has increased the amount of U.S. aid to a total of about 8.8% of the total international aid received by Palestine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008%E2%80%932009_Gaza_Strip_aid

    The Devil is In the Details

    As the Gaza funding was announced while President Obama was meeting with President Abbas one might assume that the Gaza funding would be paid to the legitimate government of Gaza, the Palestinian Authority Government, however, there are news reports that some portion of the funding will be paid directly to the terrorist organization HAMAS.

    At present it is illegal under the “Patriot Act” for any American citizen to contribute to HAMAS as it is a designated “terrorist organization”.

    Why would the President of the United States agree to send money directly to a terrorist organization sworn to the destruction of Israel, an organization that was formed to disrupt and end the very peace process Obama has sworn to see to a conclusion, a terrorist organization that attempted to overthrow President Abbas’ very government?

    It would make no sense for the President of the United States to provide any type of funding to HAMAS, such an action would run counter to everyone of Obama’s stated objectives in the Middle-East.

    Then again, this is the same President who agreed to the transfer of sophisticated surface to air missiles from Russia to Iran. Missile batteries that one day, in the not too distant future, may be trained against American pilots. The decision to allow the transfer of the missiles to Iran may be the most shortsighted strategic error made by an American President since FDR agreed to the sale of scrap metal to Japan before WWII, metal that was turned into the Japanese Imperial Fleet and Air Force.

    The Congressional Duty To “Mind The Purse Stings”

    Under the U.S. Constitution the Congress shares responsibility for ”oversight” of all U.S. spending with the President.  The powers of the President and Congress to appropriate and spend money “overlap”, each branch acting as a “check and balance” on the other. http://armsandinfluence.typepad.com/armsandinfluence/2004/04/war_and_the_us_.html

    In this instance it will be imperative that Congress step forward and determine exactly what the President intends to do with this money.

    If the money is intended for the Palestinian Authority Government, for use in humanitarian efforts in the Gaza, to build and repair homes, schools and hospitals, even if the money is to be used to drive HAMAS from Gaza and Greater Palestine, to further the “Peace Process” started some 17 years ago, then our money will be well spent.

    Congress must, however, prevent even one dime of the money from going to HAMAS. Any money given to HAMAS will, in one form or another, be converted into weapons which HAMAS will use in their attempt to destroy the Peace Process and ultimately in HAMAS’ attempts to destroy Israel.  

    Obama”s Stale Political Rhetoric

    Once again the President “muddied the waters” when he announced the “aid package”. Obama sent mixed signals to both our ally Israel and our enemies in the Middle-East by not clearly enunciating a strong support for Israel. Instead the President entered into some obtuse and confusing comments concerning the “Egyptian/Israeli blockade of Gaza”. Neither Egypt nor Israel intends to deny the inhabitants of Gaza needed humanitarian supplies.  The blockades have one intent, to stop the flow of illegal arms to HAMAS. The blockade began in June 2007 at the request of Palestinian President Abbas, after the attempted coup by HAMAS. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/6768931.stm

    The recent reports that Egypt has “opened its border with Gaza” are misleading, the border has been  “open” for years, however, the Egyptians, like the Israelis, inspect all materials going into the Gaza to prevent the flow of illegal weapons. Egypt does this in recognition of the legitimate government of the Palestinian Authority, “Egypt maintains that it cannot open the Rafah crossing since opening the border would represent Egyptian recognition of the HAMAS control of Gaza, undermine the legitimacy of the Palestinian National Authority and consecrate the split between Gaza and the West Bank.”

    Shame on REUTERS: News Agency Caught Doctoring Flotilla Photos – “Photos of Bloody Knife Wielding Humanitarian’s” cropped prior to publication

    Shame on Reuters.

    What are we to think when a News Agency starts “doctoring” or “falsifying” news photographs to support its slant on a story.

    Following the Israeli boarding of the alleged “humanitarian flotilla” from Turkey, pictures of the boarding were published in Turkey’s national press. Later the pictures were “cropped” and “enlarged” and published throughout the world by Reuters.

    As it turns out Reuters doctored the original photos.

    The original of the 1st photo shows a “humanitarian” standing with knife in hand over a bleeding IDF soldier laying on the boat’s deck. The Reuter’s photo “crops” the knife from the “humanitarians” hand.

    In the original of the second photo, below, smeared blood is clearly visable on the railing of the boat, an IDF soldier is laying on the deck while a life jacketed “humanitarian” stands above him and a knife is clearly visable in the hand of a second “humanitarian” on the right. The second Reuters photo “crops” both the knife and the blood smear from the photo. When the author of  http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/36489_Another_Cropped_Reuters_Photo_Deletes_Another_Knife_-_And_a_Pool_of_Blood  lightened the photo in his “photoshop” an additional IDF soldier was revealed laying on the deck of the  boat with a metal pipe beneath him in a pool of blood speading out from the soldier’s head.  

    Journalistically, there is no way to justify these alterations. The alterations completely change the “voice” of the photos and have been altered to tell a “false story”.

    Reuter’s must act quickly and decisively and fire both the photographer and photo editor responsible for this charade.

    Additional Photo Notes: 

    Notes: In the 2nd set of photos displayed here (http://hartalmsm.wordpress.com/2010/06/09/did-reuters-crop-gaza-flotilla-photos-to-hide-activists%e2%80%99-weapons/ ) and below, note the “stab mark” on the Israeli’s soldiers left leg approxiately 5 inches below his belt (on our right – the soldiers left). Also note that the lifejacketed “humanitarian” has this soldier in a submission hold (see the Israeli’s wrist) also note the 3rd person’s hand and blood stains on the Israeli’s right leg, below the strap. (click on photo above for enlargement). A total of three “humanitarians” attacking this one “subdued” soldier with knifes. Gee, and some of these “humanitarians” were eventually shot & killed. How could that have happened?

    ADVISORY: If your search engine is YAHOO – note that YAHOO, at present, claims it can’t “locate” the sites. Luckily for us, Google has no problem finding the photos or the articles associated with them. Gee, why can’t YAHOO find the sites?
