News You Can Use

Thursday

A recent piece of news is a great opener for starting a productive conversation:

"Did you hear that Brandeis University withdrew the honorary degree they were going to give to Ayaan Hirsi Ali because of pressure from CAIR?"

The news opens up an opportunity to ask your friends and family some questions: "Do you think that's right? Is it fair? An American university is bowing to pressure from an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization banned from Egypt, where it started. Should we concede to orthodox Islamic pressure and hinder freedom of speech by punishing people who dare to speak out against Islamic oppression and violence against women?"

This isn't some obscure school, this is Brandeis! It's in the news. Your friends can Google it. You can suggest they Google it. It makes the issue more real and immediate (and therefore arrests attention better) when it is current news.

Americans for Peace and Tolerance stated, "Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies, like the one in which she was raised. Capitulating to a campaign by CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and voluble student and faculty protests, Brandeis President Frederick Lawrence yesterday withdrew the honor. He has publicly shamed a courageous woman. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism funding case involving Hamas."

They then suggest we reach out to the Brandeis administration and express our outrage at this shameful action. President Fred Lawrence: lawrence@brandeis.edu 781-736-3001

An Op-Ed About CAIR by Sue Myrick

CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, is one of the largest and most well-funded Muslim organizations in the U.S. But they're not the moderate Muslim group they say they are. They're actually a front for the terrorist group HAMAS.

CAIR attacks those who try to speak the truth about what they are up to, like how they're placing CAIR interns in U.S. government offices. Few people have the courage to go up against any terrorist organization, but the former U.S. Representative for North Carolina's 9th congressional district, Sue Myrick, once explained CAIR's motives very clearly and very publicly. I'll quote her in a moment.

The goal of CAIR is to undermine our government by gaining government positions and influencing public perception and eventually replacing our laws with Sharia law. Europe looked the other way for too long and now they are paying the price. We can't afford to look the other way. We can't afford to believe what they say and ignore what they do.

Here's what Myrick said:

I held a press conference on Capitol Hill attended by three of my colleagues in the House of Representatives to call for a federal investigation (s) into a non-profit group called the Council on American Islamic Relations (C.A.I.R.)

Here are the facts:

1. CAIR has documented ties to the terrorist organization HAMAS. This is stated fact by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In an April 28, 2009 letter to US Senator Jon Kyl, the FBI wrote the following:

“As you know, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in the United States v. Holy Land Foundation et al. (Cr. No. 3:04-240-P (N.D.TX.). During that trial, evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestinian Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestinian Committee and HAMAS, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI.”

In case you are not familiar with the Holy Land trial referenced above, it was a Dallas, Texas trial that ended with guilty verdicts on 108 counts of funneling money ($12 million) to HAMAS.

2. The purpose of our press conference was to make public an internal CAIR memo that documented CAIR's stated goal of placing CAIR interns in the offices of members of Congress, especially the members who serve on the Homeland Security, Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. Let me be clear here, CAIR, a group whom the FBI says is affiliated with the terrorist group HAMAS, is trying to place their interns in the offices of those members who serve on the three committees that handle national security related issues. National Security is the first responsibility of the federal government.

3. Following our press conference, CAIR, immediately labeled we four members as bigots and started their public relations campaign to discredit us by claiming that we were against Muslims working on Capitol Hill. We never said that. At no time during our press conference did we even insinuate that we were investigating Muslims being interns on Capitol Hill.

Our focus was and is on CAIR and CAIR alone, not Muslims.

Likewise CAIR tried to make this a Republican vs. Democrat thing, because the four members at the press conference happened to be Republican.

How then does CAIR explain Democrat Senator Charles Schumer’s call earlier this year for a government-wide ban on CAIR in the federal government due to their ties to HAMAS? Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer has likewise made public her opinions of CAIR and any Google search will find her remarks.

4. CAIR is spending time, money and energy to position themselves as the spokespeople for the moderate Muslim community. Problem is CAIR is not a moderate Muslim organization. It is a radical front group for HAMAS. So who is CAIR competing with for this designation? The real moderate Muslim groups/individuals in America. Groups and individuals like the following who are committed to countering Islamist extremism:

Dr. Hedieh Mirahmadi – President World Organization for Resource Development and Education (WORDE)

Zeyno Baran – Director for the Center for Eurasian Policy at the Hudson Institute

Farid Ghadry – President of the Reform Party of Syria

Manda Zand Ervin – Founder and director of the Alliance of Iranian Women

Omran Salman – Arab Reformists Project, 'Aafaq (Arabic for “horizons”).

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser – American Islamic Forum for Democracy

Karim Bromund – Director of Inter-Religious Affairs for the Islamic Supreme Council of America

I SUPPORT the Muslim individuals and groups mentioned above. These groups renounce terrorists and their radical ideology. They are trying their hardest to be heard and recognized in America, but are being overshadowed and out-funded by CAIR. Today, when something happens that impacts the Muslim community, the media calls CAIR (an unindicted co-conspirator to terrorism and a HAMAS front group) for comment on behalf of American Muslims. What an insult the media is performing on the Muslim community. Instead they should be calling Muslim groups/individuals like those named above. This is part of the reason we are focusing our attention on CAIR and exposing them for who they are. For one they pose a threat to our national security, and two, they deny the ability of legitimate Muslim groups to gain credibility.

5. In July of this year I held a summit on Capitol Hill where I introduced the leaders of eight moderate Muslim organizations to the heads of several US Agencies, Members of Congress and congressional staff. For example, they met with representatives from the State Department, USAID, Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. How can I be against Muslims working on Capitol Hill and hold such an event? Go here to read for yourself about this summit.

See through the lies and realize what is really going on here.

We are trying to expose a HAMAS Front Group (CAIR) for who they are, and they are crying we are anti-Muslim hoping that media outlets will ignore the terrorist claim and instead pick it up as a race/religion story. When those claims don’t work, they claim it’s a Republican political thing.

Americans, on this subject we need to stop the Republican vs. Democrat, Conservative vs. Liberal, Christian vs. Muslim division and unite on one simple point…. CAIR is a front group for HAMAS. It was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a terrorism case that lead to 108 convictions of funneling $12 million to HAMAS. Because of the evidence produced in that case, the FBI severed all ties with them. This same CAIR, by their own admission, is trying to place people inside the offices of members of Congress who deal with national security issues (judiciary, homeland security and intelligence committees). I serve on one of those committees, Intelligence, am the co-chairwoman of the House Anti-Terrorism Caucus, and have spent the better part of the last four years working every day on terrorism related issues.

If we Americans fail to set aside our political, religious and ideological differences and unite when we encounter the enemy in such stark and plain terms, then God help us.

One Way to Educate Non-Muslims Online

Wednesday

You want to help educate your fellow non-Muslims about Islam. An admirable goal. But you have a limited number of people that you know well enough to have that kind of conversation with. And if you've been at it for awhile, probably everyone you know has either already joined the Resistance or doesn't want to talk about it any more. But you still have the impulse to spread the word.

I have a possible solution. We've created several useful resources and many people in the counterjihad haven't yet heard of them. We need to get the word out. These are tools for the Resistance.

If you wish to accept this mission, go to blogs, web sites, Facebook pages, Yahoo Answers, etc., and promote the following:

1. The Pledge: This is a pledge people can sign online, pledging to read the Koran to find out for themselves what Islam is about. Read more about the Pledge.

2. WhatYouCanDoAboutIslam.com: This is a list of practical actions an ordinary citizen can take to help stop orthodox Islam's relentless encroachment.

3. Inquiry into Islam: This is a simple site covering basic information about Islam, and the content has been made user-friendly for people who don't know much about Islam.

4. Answers to objections: This is for people already committed to doing the one thing that needs to be done most, which is talking to their immediate social circle about Islam. It's a list of objections people will give you when you talk about Islam, and provides possible ways to answer each objection.

5. Principles of influence: This is also for people committed to the Resistance. It's a growing list of ideas to help us improve our effectiveness at changing the hearts and minds of those who don't want to believe the truth about the third jihad.

6. Approach training: This is a growing list of ideas for how to approach conversations about Islam with non-Muslims to create the best possible response.

7. Talk about Islam among non-Muslims: This is a forum for non-Muslims who are committed to sharing what they know about Islam with other non-Muslims. It is a place we can help and support and coach each other in this challenging task.

8. Stop Muslim immigration petition: This is the first step all free nations must take. So says Robert Spencer. And Geert Wilders, and many other experts on Islam's prime directive who have the guts to speak the truth. Achieving the goal of stopping Muslim immigration is probably a long way off, but one first step would be to sign a petition to show politicians that there is a large percentage of the population who would support a change in immigration policy. The effort to get others to sign it is a great opening for explaining some basic facts about Islam (by inviting them to sign it and answering their question when they ask why).

9. Basic Principles of Islam: This is a great resource to share with people who don't know much about Islam. And it is also a resource for you to use when you're making a point and don't want to have to explain it in depth. You can simply link to one of the principles.

10. What educated non-Muslims don't like about Islam in a nutshell: This is a very short but very informative and well-linked explanation of what it is exactly that we don't like about Islamic doctrine.

11. What Makes Islam So Successful? (or the Terrifying Brilliance of Islam): The Terrifying Brilliance is the most popular article in Citizen Warrior. It is thorough. It is long. But it gets through to people and is now available as a printable PDF document, making it easier to share in some contexts. What Makes Islam So Successful is a version of the same article that has been made user-friendly for those not yet educated about Islam.

So your mission, if you decide to accept it, is to find places, conversations, articles, and posts where it is appropriate to promote one of these resources — ideally find a place where it provides an answer to a problem.

For example, you may see a thread where a counterjihadist is arguing with a Muslim. Simply interject this comment: "To all non-Muslims reading this, answer your questions by reading the Koran yourself. Everything else is second-hand knowledge, subject to bias and spin. Take the pledge and read the Koran." And leave a link to the pledge.

Promote these tools to others. Make comments and leave links. The more people who know about them, the more good they can do.

A Different Way to Reach People

Tuesday

The following was written by Harry Richardson:

Fighting against Islam?

A new weapon is now available.

It may seem as if you are banging your head against a wall. It seems as if no one wants to listen to what you are trying to say. You’ve tried explaining patiently, you tried explaining forcefully, you want to grab people by the lapels and scream it at them, yet nothing seems to get through.

They call you a nutjob, a racist, a bigot and worse. Friends avoid you, some of them insult you, but here is the good news:

IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.

My name is Harry Richardson and I have been dealing with this problem for the last seven years of my life. My friends are the most politically correct people you can imagine and ever since I learned the truth about Islam I have been trying to find ways to get this information through their thick skulls.

Just like you I tried it all and just like you I failed to get through to them by explaining it face to face.

That was when I knew I had to write it down in a way which would get around their prejudices and their brainwashed conditioning.

For the last six years I have been working on a book which would do just that. I knew it had to be short and very interesting to keep people reading. I also knew that I had to avoid it sounding like the stereotypical “racist, hateful, redneck” rant. You know as well as I do that the politically correct believe all of Islam’s critics to be this way.

It wasn’t until I started, that I discovered a talent for writing and especially for breaking down complex subjects into simple, logical and easy to digest information. Using the work of people such as Professor Bill Warner as a base, my goal was to create a book which could be serialised in “Women’s Weekly”. It had to be simple enough to appeal to a mass audience but most importantly, it had to be written so carefully that even the most PC people on the planet could not dismiss it as “racist propaganda”.

The book works like a charm. I no longer argue with friends or colleagues about Islam, I simply hand them a copy of my book and wait. In the early days I had the occasional rejection but I learned from these mistakes and rewrote wherever necessary. These days it has a 100% success rate. After reading it, people understand exactly what Islam is, what its goals are and what we need to do to defeat it.

It was published on Kindle last Christmas (2013) and has 16 reviews so far with every single one a perfect 5 star rating (this is highly unusual). Amazingly it has now been published in paperback and is for sale through Amazon, the world’s biggest book seller.

This book is the weapon the world has been waiting for. It pulls back the curtain to reveal the hideous truth about the Islamic deception. Most importantly, it does this in a way which the dhimmified PC types who run our institutions simply cannot deny.

Reading about Islam and waiting for someone else to do something isn’t going to work. Here are three ways you can use this weapon to make a real difference.

1) You can read the book online for free which will likely increase your knowledge and effectiveness. Unfortunately most people simply will not read a book of this size on a computer.

2) You can buy a copy of this book on Kindle and read it. This will cost just US99 cents. You will of course need to open an Amazon account if you don’t have one already (it’s free and doesn’t take long). This extra effort makes a huge difference by lifting the book up the Amazon rankings and thereby making it more visible to people interested in the subject. You will also be able to give it a huge boost by leaving a review. Most people are more influenced by reviews than anything else so you can sell this book far more effectively than I ever can.

3) The most effective way of course is to buy a copy of the book in paperback. This is slightly more expensive at US$6.00 plus postage but has a much greater impact. People WILL read this book in print. I actually recommend buying two copies to save on postage as one will definitely be borrowed and passed around and around. For the price, they also make a great birthday presents for people you wish to convert to the cause.

4) Please “Like” and repost this on whatever social networks you can.

Both paperback and Kindle versions are available from Amazon here:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Story-Mohammed-Islam-Unveiled-ebook/dp/B00H91HMPY

You need to do this because we are losing our societies, our cultures and our nations to a medieval cult of barbaric ignorance. This book works by educating people to the awful truth and when they reach the end it inspires them to pass the message (and the book) around. On average, each book seems to be passed around at least ten times converting ten people along the way. I work at a major industrial installation and the book has gone “viral” both through the blue collar “Joes” and the upper management. This book will destroy Islam, we just need to get it into the mainstream.

ONLY YOU CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

DO IT NOW WHILE YOU STILL CAN.

Unlearn the Lesson of Obedience

Sunday

The following was written by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love. The piece was originally published on her Facebook page and her blog.

Last night at the TED conference, I wept while listening to Ziauddin Yousafzai speak about his daughter, Malala.

You have have heard of Malala Yousafzai. She is the brave young Pakistani girl who was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman for speaking up on behalf of education for girls.

Her father began his extraordinary speech by saying that in tribal and patriarchal societies, a man is known by his sons. "But I am one of the few fathers who is known by my daughter," he said. "And I am proud of that."

He spoke about how, in rural Pakistan, when a girl is born, it is never cause for celebration, but rather shame. As she grows up, she is taught only one virtue: Obedience.

Yousafzai refused to follow suit. He celebrated his daughter from the day she was born, and wrote her name in the family tree — a 300 year-old document that had never mentioned a female. He put Malala in school — not only so that she could know her own potential through education, but also for the mere political defiance of writing his daughter's name on an enrollment form, thus signaling her very existence as a human being. (He had never seen the names of any of his 5 sisters on any document whatsoever; they simply did not exist within their own country.)

And most of all he said, "I taught her to unlearn the lesson of obedience."

Which was such a shocking transgression that a Taliban gunman shot her for it. (I always think it's particularly telling that she was shot in the head — shot in the MIND. Anything to shut down that female brain.)

She survived, famously, and still fights for education for girls. (She spoke last night to us from a video feed — she couldn't come to the conference because she's in SCHOOL — and she dazzled.)

This girl is extraordinary; this father is extraordinary.

He finished his speech by saying that people always ask him what he did to make Malala into such a strong warrior. He says it's not what he did; it's what he DIDN'T do: "I didn't clip her wings."

I was so honored and emotional to be there last night to hear this, and wanted to share it with you all.

Unlearn your obedience, women.

Teach your girls to unlearn their obedience.

And let a star shine in the crown of this father, and all parents, who guide their daughters to grow strong.

Onward,
LG

This is the video Gilbert was referring to: Ziauddin Yousafzai: My Daughter, Malala.

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
