    Police Say Georgia Man Killed Own Daughter to Protect Family Honor

    Monday, July 07, 2008

    Clayton County Police

    Chaudhry Rashad accused of killing his own daughter for dishonoring family.


    A Georgia man appeared in court Monday on charges he killed his own daughter for disgracing his family.

    Chaudhry Rashid, wearing a red jumpsuit and shackles around his ankles, went before Chief Judge Daphne Walker at the Clayton County Magistrate Court where he was arraigned on a murder charge.

    The 54-year-old, who is of Pakistani descent, kept his head down as charges were read, and appeared to have difficulty understanding instructions from the judge, possibly the result of a language barrier.

    His two sons were also in attendance, watching their father from seats in the rear of the courtroom, joined by two others. Rashid waved to their corner as he shuffled slowly out, impeded by the shackles.

    The 25-year-old victim, Sandeela Kanwal, was wed in Pakistan in an arranged marriage. Police said Kanwal hadn't seen her husband, who lives in Chicago, for months.

    According to police, there was "friction between father and victim" in the weeks leading up to the killing. Rashid had not spoken to his daughter in more than two months.

    Police said Rashid was so angered that his daughter planned to divorce her husband that he killed her after a heated argument at the family's home, FOX News affiliate MyFoxAtlanta reported.

    Police who arrived at the scene said they found Rashid's two sons at the end of the driveway and their father sitting behind a car smoking a cigarette. Officers said that Rashid appeared "distraught and possibly mournful" and told police "my daughter is dead" when they arrived.

    After entering the home, Kanwal's body was discovered in the doorway of a bedroom, cold to the touch, officials said.

    A police report said that there were possible "ligature marks" indicating strangulation on the victim and noted that an iron and cord had been found near her body. A necklace was also found on a table downstairs, according to the report.

    Rashid was taken to the Clayton County jail where he reportedly confessed to strangling Kanwal.

    The news shocked neighbors and friends.

    "The family is very upset and stressed," said Shahid Malik of the Pakistani American Community of Atlanta. Malik told MyFoxAtlanta that he met with the family Sunday and said they were all traumatized.

    Rashid will be back in court Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. EDT. His bond hearing is scheduled for July 25 at 8 a.m., with a preliminary hearing July 24.

    Any man who could bring himself to be judge, jury, and executioner and kill his own daughter... for "honor"(?) is beneath contempt in my book. Whatever her percieved "crime" was(or especially, was NOT) it's just putting personal ego and pride above love. Which is again beneath contempt.

    I hope the years he spends in prison gives him the time to come to terms with what he did and he comes to the full realization that the blood of his precious daughter has forever stained his hands and he failed the ultimate parental test. Unconditional love.

    I hope he doesn't go to prison for long.

    I hope he is either executed for his crime or he gets out and someone else deals with him on the streets, like he dealt with his daughter.

    He's a maggot and shouldn't be allowed to go on with his life after that.

    Sharia Showdown on Wall Street

    Posted on July 09, 2008

    By Paul Sperry





    Sheik Muhammad Taqi Usmani has been a rock star of the Islamic finance world, sitting on the sharia supervisory boards of no fewer than a dozen Islamic banks and financial institutions worldwide.


    For nearly a decade, the mufti also has advised the Dow Jones Islamic Market Index, which licenses more than 25 stock funds that comply with Islamic laws forbidding certain Western-style investments. The venerable Dow Jones & Co. first retained him in 1999.


    Usmani’s name is now missing from the Dow Jones website, where it had previously been prominently displayed. His bio and photo suddenly vanished without explanation.


    Meanwhile, all references to Dow Jones disappeared from the website of the North American Islamic Trust, or NAIT, which runs a sharia-compliant mutual fund out of Burr Ridge, Ill.
    For years the fund had been called the Dow Jones Islamic Fund. Dow had lent NAIT its good name under a licensing agreement.


    But recently the trust felt compelled to rename its lead portfolio the “Iman Fund,” and amend several pages in its prospectus to remove all references to Dow Jones, as well as Usmani. Again, no explanation was offered.


    What’s behind the mystery? It’s all been very hush-hush, but according to a high-level document I’ve obtained, along with interviews with company insiders, Dow Jones recently terminated NAIT’s license and dumped Usmani to protect its brand. The company, now under new management, no longer wants to be associated with either of them, especially after they received a spate of bad publicity this year.


    Articles published on this webzine – as well as in the National Review, Investor’s Business Daily and the Washington Times, among other media – have called attention to Usmani’s fatwahs demanding that Muslims living in the West conduct or support violent jihad against infidels at every opportunity.


    “Killing is to continue until the unbelievers pay jizyah (subjugation tax) after they are humbled or overpowered,” the radical Pakistani cleric wrote in his book, “Islam and Modernism,” which in 2006 was translated from his native Urdu into English.


    Usmani advocates spreading sharia law in America and the West – the barbaric legal code that not only justifies holy war, but the stonings, floggings, amputations and even beheadings for petty crimes seen in Muslim nations such as Saudi Arabia, Iran and Sudan.


    The aim of Muslims, he wrote, is to “take out people from the rule of people and put them under the rule of Allah.”


    More, Usmani has run a Pakistani madrassa that’s trained thousands of Taliban, according to the Washington-based Center for Security Policy.
    Usmani is no longer employed by Dow Jones, which says it only recently learned of such “allegations.”


    NAIT, which until a few months ago managed a $40 million Dow Jones portfolio, also has come under fire.


    Allegedly, the trust is a Saudi-tied front for the pro-jihad Muslim Brotherhood that holds title to some of the most radical mosques in America.


    The Justice Department last year named NAIT an unindicted
    co-conspirator in a terror money-laundering scheme to funnel more than $12 million to Hamas suicide bombers and their families under the guise of charity.


    Dow has since revoked NAIT’s license.


    The moves against Usmani and NAIT were made quietly, without any media announcements, by Dow Jones’ front office in South Brunswick, N.J.


    After NAIT’s links to terrorism were brought to its attention by the media, “Dow Jones terminated its license agreement with the NAIT subsidiary and required it to remove all reference to Dow Jones from its website and fund-related offering materials,” Dow Jones Indexes President Michael Petronella confirmed, following the mysterious disappearance of such references from NAIT’s website.


    Explaining Usmani’s departure, he cited “certain allegations related to Mr. Usmani who was, at the time, a member of the DJIM Index Sharia Advisory Board.”


    “Mr. Usmani has since resigned from our board,” he asserted.
    Petronella explained the changes in a May 29 letter to officials with the Center for Security Policy, a leading watchdog against the spread of Islamofascism in the West.


    CSP president Frank Gaffney and the group’s top lawyer had fired off a legal memo to Dow charging it with “covering up” material facts from the investing public about the sharia-compliant funds it licenses – namely, that sharia advisers like Usmani “embrace the law of violent jihad that seeks America’s destruction.” Petronella responded that Dow Jones had already taken corrective action based on earlier media reports.


    Indeed, sharia-compliant funds offer little transparency. They disclose neither the radical ties of the scholars who are advising and running them, nor the subversive tenets that dictate the structuring of the investments.


    The prospectuses merely state the investments are “ethical” or “socially acceptable,” when in fact they’re grounded in a religious doctrine that threatens America and the West.


    Lost in Wall Street’s scramble to grab management and other fees from these Islamic-compliant funds, which are growing fast thanks to Arab petrodollars, is that the funds must “purify” their returns by transferring at least 3% into Islamic charities, many of which funnel funds to terrorists.


    So, the American financial community may unwittingly be helping our sworn enemy.


    Dow Jones’ dumping of one of its top sharia advisers and licensees is a welcome setback to the burgeoning sharia-finance industry in America, which forbids investments in key businesses that drive our economy, including financial services, entertainment and aerospace-defense, as well as alcohol, tobacco and pork-related products.


    It’s also a serious blow to the credibility of one of the world’s leading sharia-finance authorities, as well as that of America’s largest mosque landlord.


    But the case merely points up the unknown risks associated with Islamic finance.


    What other sharia advisers are closet jihadists lusting after the blood of infidels? What other Islamic investment funds may be steering money to terrorists with the imprimatur of one of Wall Street’s most respected institutions?

    TRAIN-ING DAY FOR JIHADISTS
    www.nypost.com ^ | July 21, 2008 | Jeremy Oshan


    TRAIN-ING DAY FOR JIHADISTS By JEREMY OLSHAN

    July 21, 2008 -- Allah board!

    An Islamic group plans to blitz 1,000 subway cars with advertisements this September in a campaign being promoted by a Brooklyn imam whom federal officials have linked to a plot to blow up city landmarks.

    The group says its mission is to explain the true nature of Islam to non-Muslims who believe the religion is bent on acts of violence - but Siraj Wahhaj, the inflammatory imam who appears in a promotional YouTube video for the project, has defended convicted bomb-plotters and called the FBI and CIA the "real terrorists."

    US Attorney Mary Jo White even named Wahhaj one of 170 unindicted co-conspirators in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the thwarted plan to blow up a slew of buildings.

    "In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing, and the only thing that will remain will be Islam," Wahhaj said in one of his sermons.

    The stark, black-and-white ads of the Subway Project promote Islam with the goals of clearing up long-held misconceptions about the faith and reaching out to those interested in becoming Muslim, according to the Islamic Circle of North America, the group behind the campaign.

    Timed to run during the month of Ramadan, the ads come in pairs, reading "Q: Prophet Muhammad?" or "Q: Islam?" and the corresponding answer is always "A: You deserve to know."

    Muslim forces NY Harley Davidson dealer to take down sign

    By creeping

    You must tolerate intolerance, even if it kills you. This is ‘creeping sharia’, ’stealth jihad’ at work. By a single Muslim. There is no freedom of speech under sharia law, and only a semblance of freedom of speech left in America.

    ADAMS, NY ? Upstate NY Harley-Davidson dealer Iron Block Harleyy in Adams was forced to take down a sign facing route 81 behind their store.

    The sign has been displaying messages to drivers traveling on Interstate 81 since 2002. Earlier this week, it read “Obama, are you kidding? We’re not Muslim. You are not Christian!!” a reference to President Obama’s recent speech in the Middle East in which he stressed the details of Muslims living in America as a way of finding common cause with Muslim majority nations.

    Owner Erik Dunk believes that Obama would not have won the Presidency if the public was aware of the extent of his Muslim sympathies prior to the election. He indicates that this was a deceit of the American people, and that despite his continued pronouncement that he is a Christian, deceiving the American people to get the office is not a Christian thing to do.

    Iron Block’s sign has carried messages of a political nature for years. The sign once said “Impeach the Dictator!” but Dunk indicates that no one at Harley-Davidson forced him to remove that message though it was far more politically controversial.

    Harley-Davidson’s lawyers ordered Dunk to remove the message from his sign or risk losing his Harley-Davidson franchise. They had received one complaint regarding the sign from a Syracuse-area Muslim who told Harley-Davidson that the sign was offensive and derogatory to Muslims.

    Dunk contends that the message was in no way derogatory to any religious group and was simply an indictment of President Obama’s behavior on behalf of America while he was in the Middle East.

    He also claims that liberal media outlets in the area reported the issue with strong bias and several factual errors, pointing out that staff at the Watertown Daily Times are well aware that his sign has been running politically-oriented messages for years though in their coverage of the story, they only talked about the anti-Obama messages.

    Islamic Supremacist Group Holds First U.S. Conference

    Friday, July 17, 2009

    Diane Macedo



    The Khilafah Conference 2009 is scheduled to be held July 19, 2009
    at the Hilton Oak Lawn hotel.



    A group committed to establishing an international Islamic empire and reportedly linked to Al Qaeda is stepping up its Western recruitment efforts by holding its first official conference in the U.S.


    Hizb ut-Tahrir is a global Sunni network with reported ties to confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Al Qaeda in Iraq's onetime leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. It has operated discreetly in the U.S. for decades.

    Now, it is coming out of the shadows and openly hosting a July 19 conference entitled, "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam," at a posh Hilton hotel in a suburb of Chicago.

    Hizb ut-Tahrir insists that it does not engage in terrorism, and it is not recognized by the State Department as a known terror group.

    But some terrorism experts say it may be even more dangerous than many groups that are on the terror list.

    "Hizb ut-Tahrir is one of the oldest, largest indoctrinating organizations for the ideology known as jihadism," Walid Phares, director of the Future of Terrorism Project at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told FOXNews.com.

    Phares said that Hizb ut-Tahrir, rather than training members to carry out terrorist acts like Al Qaeda, focuses instead on indoctrinating youths between ages of 9 and 18 to absorb the ideology that calls for the formation of an empire — or "khilafah" — that will rule according to Islamic law and condones any means to achieve it, including militant jihad.
    Hizb ut-Tahrir often says that its indoctrination "prepares the infantry" that groups like Al Qaeda take into battle, Phares said.

    "It's like a middle school that prepares them to be recruited by the high school, which is Al Qaeda," he said. "One would compare them to Hitler youth. ... It's an extremely dangerous organization."

    Phares said Hizb ut-Tahrir has strongholds in Western countries, including Britain, France and Spain, and clearly is looking to strengthen its base in the U.S.

    "The aim of this conference is to recruit within the Muslim community in America," he said. "The Middle East governments go after them, but in the U.S. they are protected, so having a base here is going to help their cells around the world."

    Representatives of Hizb ut-Tahrir declined to comment when contacted by FOXNews.com.

    Oren Segal, director of Islamic Affairs for the Anti-Defamation League, said the conference is cause for concern.

    "While they're not, for the most part, engaging in violent activities, and they publicly say that they're against violence, there have been examples around the world where people who have spun off of this group have engaged in violent activity," Segal told FOXNews.com. "That's why they're banned in several Arab and Central Asian countries, as well as Germany and Russia."

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is one of the group's most famous alumni, New Statesman journalist Shiv Malik reported, citing intelligence sources. In addition to plotting the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he also is implicated in the World Trade Center bombing of 1993, the Bali nightclub bombings and the murder of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

    Malik's report, the public policy institute the Nixon Center and the counter-extremism think tank the Quilliam Foundation agree that Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq until he was killed in June 2006, also was once a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

    They say other former members include Asif Muhammad Hanif, a British man who blew himself up outside a bar in Tel Aviv, killing four people (including himself) and wounding more than 50; and Omar Bakri Mohammed, a radical cleric currently banned from Britain who praised the 9/11 attacks, raised funds for Hezbollah and Hamas and called for attacks on the Dublin airport because U.S. troops transfered there on their way to Iraq.

    Segal said Hizb ut-Tahrir is becoming more active online in the U.S. — particularly on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace — and now it may be able to add a significant number of Americans to its ranks.

    But one place the group will likely not be recruiting is a local Islamic school that backed out of hosting the conference.

    The non-profit Aqsa school in Bridgeview said Hizb ut-Tahrir had deceptively portrayed the conference as a bazaar-type event where traditional food and clothing would be sold.

    "They misrepresented themselves and the event. We don't want to be in the middle of something like that," the school's business manager Rana Jaber, told CBS News.

    The conference's new venue doesn't seem to mind.

    Hilton Oak Lawn General Manager Rick Harmon said Hizb ut-Tahrir used its own name when it reserved the room for the conference, but the hotel was not aware of the content of the event, which includes lectures entitled "Capitalism is Doomed to Fail," "The Global Rise of Islam," and the "Role of Muslims in America," until after the contract was signed.

    Still, Harmon said the hotel is open to all kinds of meetings, that don't necessarily reflect its position or beliefs.

    "We're United States citizens and an American business — if it's legal, we're able to host it, as long as it's nothing that disrupts our other guests' privacy and security," Harmon told FOXNews.com.

    According to the Khilafah Conference 2009 Web site, the group aims to do neither.

    "Hizb-ut-Tahrir is convinced that change must start in the minds of people, and therefore does not accept for people, or societies, to be forced to change by means of violence and terror," it reads.

    The site, which includes a promotional YouTube video, says the group "does not work in the West to change the system of government, but works to project a positive image of Islam to Western society."

    But former member Ishtiaq Hussain said Hizb ut-Tahrir is repackaging itself as a moderate organization as a tactic, while in reality it is "extremist."

    "They don't recognize countries like Israel, for example; they don’t believe Israel should exist," Hussain, now a trainer for the Quilliam Foundation, told FOXNews.com. "Some of their leaders have denied the Holocaust, and they believe homosexuals should be thrown off the highest building. ... It's actually a very dangerous group."

    Hizb ut-Tahrir itself has also published writings that seem to contradict its tenet of non-violence.

    In his book, "How the Khilafah Was Destroyed," Sheikh Abdul Qadeem Zalloom, the former global leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir, says anyone who rules by a non-Islamic system should "either retract or be killed ... even if this led to several years of fighting and even if it led to the killing of millions of Muslims and to the martyrdom of millions of believers."

    Hizb ut-Tahrir's official ruling on the permissibility of hijacking planes says, "If the plane belongs to a country at war with Muslims, like Israel, it is allowed to hijack it, for there is no sanctity for Israel nor for the Jews in it."

    Click here to read the full ruling (pdf).

    And one of the organization's more recent leaflets, published in March, calls for the declaration of "a state of war against America."

    But, despite these threats and calls to action, Hizb ut-Tahrir remains off the State Department's terror watch list, and it is free to host the Khilafah Conference and any other event like it.

    "In other parts of the world where they're really very active, they've drawn tens of thousands of people to some of their events," Segal said.

    "It'll be interesting to see to what degree they'll be welcomed here."

    Islam Becomes Victorious or We Die in the Attempt

    Imam at Windy City Islamist confab: We'll fight til ‘Islam Becomes Victorious or We Die in the Attempt’

    By Steven Emerson



    Shariah Must Take Precedence over U.S. Constitution

    http://www.JewishWorldReview.com
    OAK LAWN, Illinois — Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), the international movement to re-establish an international Islamic state, or Caliphate, kicked off a new campaign to win American recruits Sunday afternoon in this Chicago suburb.

    Nearly 300 people packed the Grand Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel for its Khalifah Conference on "The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam" to listen to HT ideologues blame capitalism for World War I and World War II; the U.S. subprime mortgage meltdown; the current violence in Iraq and Afghanistan; world poverty and malnutrition and inner-city drug use.


    A speaker identified as Abu Atallah even blamed capitalism for the late singer Michael Jackson's decision "to shed his black skin."


    Hizb ut-Tahrir aims to restore the Caliphate that existed during the Ottoman Empire in Turkey. Turkish leader Kemal Ataturk abolished it in 1924 in an effort to create a secular, Europeanized state.


    Security at the conference was very tight. Oak Lawn police maintained a checkpoint outside the Hilton, and local police and HT's own security people had a substantial presence inside the hotel. In the ballroom where the conference took place, men and women were largely segregated, with men in the front and women in the back. This became a significant point of contention between HT supporters and several members of the audience who objected to this arrangement. At one point, an unidentified Hizb ut-Tahrir speaker became flustered over this line of questioning.


    "Men and women," he blurted out, must be kept separate "to prevent people from behaving like animals."


    A woman in the audience responded: "How does intermingling between men and women make you animals?" HT panelists didn't have a persuasive answer, and soon adjourned that session.


    The conference was sometimes poorly organized. There was no list of speakers, forcing reporters to sometimes guess at the spelling of speakers' names. But HT certainly appeared to be serious about working for the larger goals of the conference: abolishing capitalism and imposing Caliphate rule over the world.


    According to Hizb ut-Tahrir, the world's social and economic problems will not be fixed until the world is governed by Shariah and the government controls all major industries. Lenders would no longer be able to charge interest, which one speaker decried as a "poisonous concept." Charity, or zakat, was advertised as the way to alleviate "economic inequality."


    "Secular capitalism has made me devalue my skin" and "has kept my family in ghettos," said one speaker, an African-American who went on to blame it for the fact that he smoked marijuana and his grandmother played the lottery. Capitalism, he added, is a form of economic "terrorism" and "causes us to be sent to mental hospitals." Barack Obama's presidency, he said, "is only a scheme or con" to trick people into thinking that things will get better under capitalism.


    But time and again on Sunday, Hizb ut-Tahrir officials seemed to be playing slippery rhetorical games of their own -- particularly when it came to the behavior of despotic Muslim regimes and terrorists. When a few skeptical audience members pressed speakers over the fact that Islamic governments in Iran and Saudi Arabia are despotic, conference speakers claimed those weren't "authentic" Muslim governments and that the CIA (and by implication, the capitalist U.S. government) was to blame for the problems in those countries. In an interview with WBBM-TV in Chicago, HT deputy spokesman Mohammad Malkawi refused to specifically condemn Al Qaida and the Taliban.


    Hizb ut-Tahrir has not been designated a terrorist group by the U.S. government and it insists it is only interested in instituting radical change by nonviolent means. But HT's alumni include 9/ll mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the late Iraqi terrorist leader Abu Musab Zarqawi and would-be Hamas suicide bombers, and the group's pro-jihadist rhetoric has led critics to label it a "conveyor belt for terrorists."


    HT's efforts to rehabilitate its image won't be helped by the menacing tone on display Sunday. One late-afternoon panelist suggested that modern industrial powers could fall to Muslims the way Mecca fell to Mohammed nearly 1,400 years ago.


    A speaker identified by conference organizers as Imam Jaleel Abdul Adil said that "if they offer us the sun, or the moon, or a nice raise, or a passport, or a house in the suburbs or even a place to pray at the job, on the condition that we stop calling for Islam as a complete way of life -- we should never do that, ever do that -- unless and until Islam becomes victorious or we die in the attempt."


    Later, the following dialogue ensued between the imam and a member of the audience over whether Shariah or the Constitution should be the supreme law of the land in the United States:


    Audience member: "Would you get rid of the Constitution for Shariah, yes or no?" Imam: "Over the Muslim world? Yes, it would be gone."
    Audience Member: And so if the United States was a Muslim world, the Constitution would be gone?"
    Imam: "If the United States was in the Muslim world, the Muslims who are here would be calling and happy to see the Shariah applied, yes we would."
    Audience Member: "And the Constitution gone. That's all."
    Imam: "Yes, as Muslims they would be long gone."

    While Hizb ut-Tahrir's controversial message attracted demonstrators and some media attention, the group at least is open about its ambitions. It not only is determined to destroy capitalism — it would shred the United States Constitution as well in favor of Shariah law.

    Americans No Longer See Terrorism as Threat

    By Dr. Paul L. Williams
    Tuesday, July 28, 2009

    If you can’t beat them…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbiMTCcBzo0

    Forget 9/11.

    Forget the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

    Forget the fatwahs of al Qaeda and its sister organizations.

    Forget the scores of attacks that have occurred or been thwarted on American soil during the past eight years.

    Americans, according to a Gallup poll, are less concerned about terrorism than at any point since August 2004 – with only 36% saying they are very or somewhat worried that they or a family member will become a victim of a terrorist attack.

    Americans’ collective level of worry about terrorism is the lowest recorded since August 2004 (34%) and down sharply from the all-time high of 59% recorded in October 2001, just after the Sept. 11 attacks. 30% now say they are not too worried about the threat of another terrorist attack and 34% say they are not at all worried.

    In a separate Gallup Poll, a scant 1% of the Americans surveyed mentioned terrorism as the most important problem facing the United States.

    Although President Obama, apart from Bubba Bill Clinton, is the only U.S. Commander-in-Chief never to serve in the Army, 73% of Americans say they have a great deal or fair amount of confidence in the Obama Administration and the Democrat majority in the House and Senate to protect them from future acts of terrorism — unchanged from 2006.

    Two-thirds of the liberals in America, according to a recent ABC poll, maintain that Islam is a peaceful religion that poses no threat to the country. Sixty-two percent of the registered Democrats and Independents concur.

    Islam, the ABC pollsters discovered, is more apt to be seen unfavorably by less-educated adults, Southerners and senior citizens than by their counterparts. Compared with the ABC poll of October 2001, unfavorable views of Islam have increased by 23 points among senior citizens, 19 points among conservatives, 18 points among Republicans and 12 points among Southerners. There’s one group – liberals – among whom unfavorable views of Islam have declined, by 11 points.

    These findings are supported by the collapse of the market for books dealing with terrorism. Harry Crocker of Regnery, the publisher of such works as Stealth Jihad by Robert Spencer and America Alone by Mark Steyn, says that books on terrorism no longer sell well.

    The new attitude of the American people goes a long way to explain the failure to drum up a substantial number of protestors to decry the convention of Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamic group with espouses terror attacks against Israel and the United States, at the Oak Lawn Hilton Hotel on the outskirts of Chicago. The subject of the gathering was “The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Capitalism.” The event, according to the Chicago Sun Times, attracted 800 Islamists but less than fifty people showed up to protest.

    imageHilton Oak Lawn General Manager Rick Harmon said Hizb ut-Tahrir (Arabic for “the Party of Liberation”) used its own name when it reserved the room for the conference, but the hotel was not aware of the content of the event, which includes lectures entitled “Capitalism is Doomed to Fail,” “The Global Rise of Islam,” and the “Role of Muslims in America,” until after the contract was signed.

    Harmon said the hotel is open to all kinds of meetings, including presumably gatherings of Muslims who are intent upon the destruction of America and its economic system.

    Hizb ut-Tahrir, according to Islam expert Walid Phares, offers indoctrination that prepares al Qaeda and other terrorist groups for the jihad against Israel and the United States. It is a global Sunni network.

    Some prominent members included 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed; Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the commander al Qaeda in Iraq; Asif Muhammad Hanif, a British jihadi who blew himself up outside a bar in Tel Aviv, killing four people (including himself) and wounding more than 50; and Omar Bakri Mohammed, a imam currently banned from Britain who praised the 9/11 attacks, raised funds for Hezbollah and Hamas and called for attacks on the Dublin airport where U.S. troops transferred there en route to Iraq.

    In his book, “How the Khilafah Was Destroyed,” Sheikh Abdul Qadeem Zalloom, the former global leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir, says anyone who rules by a non-Islamic system should “either retract or be killed … even if this led to several years of fighting and even if it led to the killing of millions of Muslims and to the martyrdom of millions of believers.”

    Hizb ut-Tahrir’s official ruling on the permissibility of hijacking planes says, “If the plane belongs to a country at war with Muslims, like Israel, it is allowed to hijack it, for there is no sanctity for Israel or for the Jews in it.” Interestingly for Americans, one of the organization’s more recent leaflets, published in March, calls for the declaration of “a state of war against America.”

    Former member Ed Husain, who left the Muslim organization and denounced it in his book The Islamist, says: “The only difference between Islamists from Hizb ut-Tahrir and jihadists, is that the former are waiting for their state and caliph before they commence jihad, while the latter believes the time for jihad is now.”

    Hizb-ut-Tahrir is outlawed in Russia, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and numerous Muslim countries (including Egypt, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia) that regard it as a radical, subversive, terrorist organization that spreads “hate and violence” and seeks to overthrow their governments.

    But the group remains off the State Department’s terror watch list and remains free to expand its operations throughout our country.

    FBI Partners With Jihad Groups

    by Rowan Scarborough
    09/10/2009

    The FBI since the September 11 attacks has forged ties with a number of Muslim groups linked to a secretive organization that calls for the methodical takeover of the United States.

    HUMAN EVENTS has obtained an eight-page memo written by Washington Field Office officials which celebrates the way the FBI, whose mission is law enforcement, has created these "partnerships."

    Critics, some within the FBI, say the bureau is increasing the statue of groups whose long-term ideological goal is to bring Islamic law to America through jihad, or struggle.

    A former agent told HUMAN EVENTS the bureau is dealing with the groups that maintain an under-the-radar alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood. The ultra-secretive Muslim Brotherhood, with chapters worldwide, is the glue for a network of Islamic groups.

    "The FBI leadership is relying on the Muslim leaders, who are known Muslim Brotherhood, to give them direction on how to go after the enemy in the community," the ex-agent said. "These are the very people who have advocated overthrowing the American government."

    The former agent pointed to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood manifesto ("An Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America") discovered in 2004 in an FBI raid on a suspected Islamic extremist, Ismael Selim Elbarasse.

    The document first came to light in 2007, when Justice Department prosecutors filed it in the case against the Holy Land Foundation, a Palestinian Hamas front that funneled millions of dollars to the outlaw terrorist group.

    Written by a group of Brotherhood members in 1991, the paper says the group has begun "A new stage of Islamic activism stages in this continent." It said the goals were approved four years earlier at secret conferences of Muslims in this country.

    One section states it goal of taking over the United States:

    "Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America: The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.

    "All those documents in Elbarasse's home were phenomenally important because for the first time it revealed the Muslim Brotherhood's existence," said Steve Emerson, who runs the Investigative Project on Terrorism and exposes radical Islam. "They disclosed the whole structure of the Muslim Brotherhood, which up until that point had not been known. It showed their agenda. That discovery was absolutely the greatest intelligence yield in 40 years."

    HUMAN EVENTS examined the Islamic groups the FBI has befriended, presented with awards, invited to agent conferences and shared the speakers platform -- all under the guise of outreach to the Islamic community.

    The most prevalent is the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a prominent Brotherhood member, according to Justice Department documents. The department named ISNA among scores of unindicted co-conspirators in the successful prosecution of Holy Land and its operatives.

    The FBI has given awards to ISNA officials. It placed ads in its monthly publication asking Muslims to apply to become agents. "Today's FBI. It's for you," the ad says.

    ISNA ran an ad that says, "We congratulate the FBI on 100 years of service to our country. Here's to continuing a shared partnership in securing the values, rights and freedoms we all hold dear as Americans." There is no endorsement of the FBI's counter-terrorism role.

    Some FBI agents are disturbed at his outreach. They point, for example, to a panel discussion last year at Yale.

    On the panel was Louay Safi, an Islamic scholar and supporter of President Obama. Joining him that day was Valerie Caproni, the FBI's top lawyer who weighs in on whether the bureau should investigate suspected extremists. The discussion was called, "Behind the Blindfold of Justice: Security, Individual Rights, & Minority Communities After 9/11."

    Safi is a Syrian-born author who advocates Muslim American rights through his directorship of ISNA's Leadership Development Center. He advocates direct talks between Washington and Iran's leaders. He has spoken out against various law enforcement raids on Islamic centers.

    In a 2003 publication, "Peace and the Limits of War," Safi wrote, "The war against the apostates [non-believers of Islam] is carried out not to force them to accept Islam, but to enforce the Islamic law and maintain order."

    He also wrote, "It is up to the Muslim leadership to assess the situation and weigh the circumstances as well as the capacity of the Muslim community before deciding the appropriate type of jihad. At one stage, Muslims may find that jihad, through persuasion or peaceful resistance, is the best and most effective method to achieve just peace."

    At ISNA's annual convention in Washington in July, one speaker, Imam Warith Deen Umar, criticized Obama for having two Jewish people -- Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod -- in the White House. "Why do this small number of people have control of the world?" he said, according to a IPT transcript. He said the Holocast was punishment for Jews "because they were serially disobedient to Allah."

    Emerson's group collected literature at the convention approved for distribution by ISNA.

    It said the pamphlets and books featured "numerous attempts to portray U.S. prosecution of terrorists and terror supporters as anti-Muslim bigotry; dramatic revisionist history that denied attacks by Arab nations and Palestinian terrorists against Israel; anti-Semitic tracts and hyperbolic rants about a genocide and holocaust of Palestinians."

    Asked if the FBI should sever ties with ISNA, Emerson said, "ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator. It's a Muslim Brotherhood group. I think in terms of legitimacy there should be certain expectations of what the group says publicly. If it continues to espouse jihad and anti-Semitism, I think it nullifies it right to have the FBI recognize it."

    But the FBI, according to the internal memo obtained by HUMAN EVENTS, actually celebrates these ties.

    "This relationship is designed to share cultural, linguistic and contextual expertise between the FBI and community members for the greater protection of our country and our civil liberties," the memo states. It adds, "The collaboration between the Arab, Muslim and Sikh Advisory Council and the FBI Washington Field Office has developed into a meaningful relationship of mutual trust and understanding and has provided significant progress regarding local religious centers."

    Another section states, "It is the mission of the FBI to balance political freedoms with security."

    When read this statement, the former agent told HUMAN EVENTS, "No it is not."

    The memo specifically lauds ISNA's vice president, Imam Mohammed Majid. "Imam Majid has represented the voice of moderate Muslims in the DC/Northern Virginia community and has stepped forward to denounce acts of hate and terrorism," the FBI memo says.

    The FBI, under pressure from agents in the field, did sever ties with one Holy Land co-conspirator and Brotherhood Member -- the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR. The FBI used CAIR representatives to teach its agents about Islam.

    "It was crazy all these years with CAIR, when CAIR was telling the worst horrible stories about the FBI and was telling people not to cooperate with the FBI," Emerson said.

    John Miller, the FBI's chief spokesman, provided this statement to HUMAN EVENTS:

    "In General, the FBI conducts outreach with a number of respected groups and leaders within the Arab-American and Muslim-American communities. While we are willing to talk to many groups, when it comes to any type of formal relationship or partnership, there is a process for vetting."

    Concerning CAIR, Miller said, "As a result of evidence gathered by the FBI and presented during the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, the FBI suspended all formal contacts with CAIR. Determining whether CAIR can be an appropriate liaison contact depends on addressing questions and issues raised in the trial about CAIR’s leadership . That does not affect the ability of CAIR or any member of CAIR to report any crime, suspicious activity or violation of civil rights to the FBI."

    Schoolboys punished with detention for refusing to kneel down and pray to Allah

    The cops seem to never confront the Muslims.

    Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing to kneel down and 'pray to Allah' during a religious education lesson.

    Parents were outraged that the two boys from year seven (11 to 12-year-olds) were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped.

    They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at Alsager High School, near Stoke-on-Trent - which included wearing Muslim headgear - was a breach of their human rights.

    Alsager School, near Stoke, has received furious complaints from parents after two Year 7 boys were punished for refusing to kneel to Allah during a religious studies class


    One parent, Sharon Luinen, said: "This isn't right, it's taking things too far.

    "I understand that they have to learn about other religions. I can live with that but it is taking it a step too far to be punished because they wouldn't join in Muslim prayer.

    "Making them pray to Allah, who isn't who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful.

    "I don't want this to look as if I have a problem with the school because I am generally very happy with it."

    Another parent Karen Williams said: "I am absolutely furious my daughter was made to take part in it and I don't find it acceptable.

    "I haven't got a problem with them teaching my child other religions and a small amount of information doesn't do any harm.

    "But not only did they have to pray, the teacher had gone into the class and made them watch a short film and then said 'we are now going out to pray to Allah'.

    "Then two boys got detention and all the other children missed their refreshment break because of the teacher.

    "Not only was it forced upon them, my daughter was told off for not doing it right.

    "They'd never done it before and they were supposed to do it in another language."

    "My child has been forced to pray to Allah in a school lesson." The grandfather of one of the pupils in the class said: "It's absolutely disgusting, there's no other way of putting it.

    "My daughter and a lot of other mothers are furious about their children being made to kneel on the floor and pray to Islam. If they didn't do it they were given detention.

    "I am not racist, I've been friendly with an Indian for 30 years. I've also been to a Muslim wedding where it was explained to me that alcohol would not be served and I respected that.

    "But if Muslims were asked to go to church on Sunday and take Holy Communion there would be war."

    Parents said that their children were made to bend down on their knees on prayer mats which the RE teacher had got out of her cupboard and they were also told to wear Islamic headgear during the lesson on Tuesday afternoon.

    Deputy headmaster Keith Plant said: "It's difficult to know at the moment whether this was part of the curriculum or not. I am not an RE teacher, I am an English teacher.

    "At the moment it is our enterprise week and many of our members of staff are away.

    "The particular member of staff you need to speak to isn't around. I think that it is a shame that so many parents have got in touch with the Press before coming to me.

    "I have spoken to the teacher and she has articulately given me her version of events, but that is all I can give you at the moment."

    A statement from Cheshire County Council on behalf of the school read: "The headteacher David Black contacted this authority immediately complaints were received.

    "Enquiries are being made into the circumstances as a matter of urgency and all parents will be informed accordingly.

    "Educating children in the beliefs of different faith is part of the diversity curriculum on the basis that knowledge is essential to understanding.

    "We accept that such teaching is to be conducted with some sense of sensitivity."

    Coming Soon: More Sharia Compliant ETFs

    by: Michael Johnston September 23, 2009 | about: JVS

    Index Universe is reporting that two new ETFs meeting the requirements of Sharia law could be on the way, including the ShariahShares FTSE USA Fund and the ShariahShares FTSE Developed ex-U.S. Fund. The U.S. fund will reportedly invest in nearly 250 mid- and large-cap companies, while the ex-U.S. Fund will invest in stocks in 25 developed countries around the world.



    Sharia, which means “way”, refers to the body of Islamic religious law, and covers many areas of daily life, including politics, banking, business, and social issues.

    In order to comply with the law, the proposed ETFs would avoid exposure to non-Islamic banks, as well as insurance, alcohol, firearms, entertainment, and tobacco companies. And the funds also won’t invest in companies that produce pork products.

    The idea of limiting investments to Sharia-compliant companies may seem very restrictive. But most investors will be surprised to learn that the vast majority of publicly-traded companies are compliant with Sharia and eligible for inclusion. As such, Sharia-compliant ETFs are may closely resemble diversified domestic and global ETFs.

    Earlier this year, Javelin Exchange Traded Shares (JETS) introduced the Dow Jones Islamic Market International Index Fund (JVS), the first U.S.-listed ETF to restrict its holdings to companies that comply with Sharia. The index underlying JVS consists of approximately 100 companies diversified across more than a dozen countries and various sectors of the global economy.

    The major holdings of JVS aren’t obscure companies focusing exclusively on Islamic markets, but rather well-known global firms that refrain from engaging in activities forbidden by Islamic law. According to its web site, the largest holdings of JVS are:



    JVS invests in companies in various industries, but its heaviest concentrations are in oil & gas (30%), basic materials (19%), and health care (18%). The ETF has surged more than 15% since its inception in late June, but has been slow to gain traction among investors. Recently, JVS had a total market cap of just under $5 million and an average daily trading volume of just over 1,000 shares.

    Because the U.S. Census doesn’t ask about religions affiliation, it is difficult to give an accurate estimate of the Muslim population in the U.S. The Pew Muslim American Study conducted two years ago placed the figure around 2.5 million, while the Council on American-Islamic Relations estimates 6 million.

    In either instance, in order to be successful, these ETFs will likely need to catch on with non-Islamic investors as well, which could be a rather significant obstacle given the abundance of global and domestic equity ETFs, many of which maintain very low expense ratios and offer excellent liquidity.

    Disclosure: No positions at time of writing.

    Default Re: Attempts to Push Sharia Law on America

    i'm just barely scratching the surface on this site so hopefully you guys will bear with me on being un-informed or even under informed. a lot of what was posted here makes me a little ill. watching the poor guys/gals with the camera at the islam fest is definitely nerve wracking. but i'm a person that tries (as best as i can, i'm not always successful) to keep perspective on things. it's obvious this large group of muslims in Dearborn do not give a rats poop about America. They obviously want Sharia law. However, after watching the video and contemplating the flip side of this story, what if a muslim came to a huge christian event wearing a tshirt that says Allah Akbar (i don't know how it's spelled). i'm left wondering what that video would show us?

    that being said, anti-americanism appears to be rampant and in some cases unstoppable. i feel "our culture" is/was too weak to defend itself against "over diversification". at some point i stop and look at history and see things like the armenian/turkish genocides; the nazi germany. i see people taking extreme measures to uproot the system in order to "regain control". maybe my view isn't dead on, but these "cultural events" (cultures clashing for survival) always seem to occur and are almost always seemingly followed by huge wars that involve more than one country. if worse comes to worse here in the states, who will take "our" side? is america too diverse to even have a clear boundary of sides?

    anyway, just late night ponderings.
