The Tennessee Freedom Coalition


WHEN THE United States is in a tough fight, Tennessee always comes through. When the War of 1812 broke out between the United States and Britain, 2,000 Tennesseans volunteered to fight under General Andrew Jackson. The Tennesseans made up the main part of Jackson's army that defeated the British at the Battle of New Orleans on January 8, 1815.

In the Mexican war, Tennessee was asked to call up 2,800 men. But 30,000 volunteered. Tennessee is known as the "volunteer state" for good reason. And they're still earning that moniker today. All over the world, people are yielding to Islam's relentless encroachment. But Tennesseans aren't having it.

Orthodox Muslims have come to Tennessee to push their agenda, but they've come to the wrong place.

Leading the fight is the
Tennessee Freedom Coalition (TFC), a non-partisan grassroots movement led by executive director Lou Ann Zelenik and chairman Andy Miller.

Among TFC's goals is to "educate citizens on the realities of Sharia and stop the growth of radical Islam." They create events that inform people with educational forums and expert speakers, and by conducting political workshops.

They've only been in existence for a few months, and already TFC has accomplished two remarkable things: They partnered with Americans for Peace and Tolerance to make a professional documentary that exposed radical Islamist preachers in Nashville — preachers who had been accepted by the city leadership and the media as "moderates," but who were indoctrinating students at both Vanderbilt and Tennessee State University (as well as their mosque members in Nashville) with extremist, anti-American views.

You can see their first-rate 16-minute video on YouTube here:
Losing Our Community. This video had a significant part to play in alerting legislators to what needed to be done, and they recently voted overwhelmingly to approve an anti-terrorism bill in a 26-3 landslide in Tennessee's Senate. The vote passed in the House a few days earlier, 76-16. The bill allows Tennessee to prosecute anyone who provides material support for terrorism of any kind.

The other important thing TFC has accomplished is the inaugural Signature Series event on May 12, 2011. The main speakers were
Geert Wilders, Sam Solomon, and Bill Warner. This event also had a major educational influence on Tennessee politicians and helped the anti-terrorism bill pass. Many state legislators had a chance to meet with and listen to Geert Wilders at this event, and the very next day, the bill had 14 new co-sponsors!

You can read an excellent first-hand account of the event by Baron Bodissey here:
Tennessee the Model. But I'd like to quote Bodissey briefly here, just to give you an idea of what kind of event it was:

Last week’s events in Nashville can provide inspiration for the rest of the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and anywhere else in world where grassroots groups are resisting Islamization. Tennessee can also serve as a model for future actions all across the American heartland.

This was the largest and most effective event of its type that I have ever attended, and one of the main reasons for its success was the mega-church environment. I realize that this doesn’t sit well with some of our atheist or secular readers, but it’s hard to argue with effectiveness.

The plans to bring in Mr. Wilders gained TFC some media attention a day or two ahead of the event, but most of the advance publicity was by word-of-mouth through churches, civic organizations, and the local Republican party. The venue was ideal for a large crowd, since it could seat as many people as a convention hall, and had enough parking to accommodate all their vehicles. The church already had the expertise and personnel to direct traffic, deal with crowd control, and provide security. With the local police cooperating, the setup was orderly and secure.

There was no entry fee.

The audience response to the speeches was uniformly positive and enthusiastic — Geert Wilders was interrupted by applause over and over again. One could tell that people had been desperate to hear these things actually spoken out loud. These were opinions which they had thought were forbidden, but which they now understood to be held in common with thousands of other Tennesseans. Mr. Wilders reminded them of their rights under the First Amendment — as he said, “here I can say what I want to say without having to fear that I will be dragged to court upon leaving this church.”

Thousands of people who had never heard of Geert Wilders have now listened to him and understood his message.

TFC has a DVD of the inaugural Signature Series event, which you can purchase here:
Geert Wilders' Warning to America. The Nashville event was Wilders' only United States appearance during his last visit. You can see Bill Warner's speech, which is included on the DVD, here.

The DVD is perfect for sharing with people who have not yet fully "embraced the horror" (people who haven't yet accepted the idea that Islam is not a religion of peace). They will see and hear with their own eyes that there are a lot of people who appreciate this information. From the applause you can hear on the DVD, you can tell the audience is enormous. It isn't a few crackpot conspiracy theorists in a dingy basement. This is a mainstream, well-attended, openly-publicized event, and this lends a tremendous feeling of legitimacy to the whole affair that will have a positive influence on your skeptical friends and family.

A couple of days before the inaugural Signature Series event, TFC had a smaller event which included a barbecue and a lecture by Sam Solomon. Twenty-five legislators attended this event. When Solomon first stood up to speak, he wasn't getting much attention. Many people in the audience were texting or doing something with their phones. But as soon as Solomon began speaking, they could not look away.

Solomon speaks with authority. He is a not only a former Muslim, he is a former Middle Eastern Muslim scholar and professor of Sharia law who can still easily recite the Koran from memory. He speaks fluent Arabic. He's now a senior lecturer and research coordinator, a human rights activist and an advisor to British as well as European parliamentarians.

At the TFC barbecue event, Solomon took the room under his spell and many of the legislators afterwards remarked about how much Solomon's talk had advanced their understanding of the very real threat Sharia law poses to the West.

Beforehand the legislators were told they wouldn't have to endure more than 30 minutes of lecture time. But they asked so many questions, the session was stopped after an hour and 20 minutes. This doubtless had a strong influence on the anti-terrorism bill landslide I mentioned above.
This fall TFC is planning an event centering around "jihad hotels" and illegal immigration.

The Tennessee Freedom Coalition is a new and formidable force in the counterjihad movement. I encourage you to
sign up for the TFC email updates, to "like" TFC on Facebook, and to follow TFC on Twitter. You can contact them at


The Betrayal of the Christians of Bradford UK


The following was written by Babs Barron, originally published on and republished with permission:

I have just read an account of wilful dhimmitude in
an online article in the UK Daily Telegraph. It exemplifies so much of what endangers UK society in the face of the tide of Islam which threatens to engulf it, and such wilful and irresponsible blindness to that danger, that I could hardly believe what I was reading. I invite readers to try to make sense of it alongside me:

It concerns a statement by the Church of England Bishop of Bradford, the Right Reverend Nick Baines, to the General Synod in York, in which he says that some parishes in his diocese were 95% Muslim but that this should not be seen as a problem. Were he talking about a predominance any other ideological belief system then he might have a valid point — I cannot imagine Sikhs or Hindus or Jews or Rastafarians or Zoroastrians or any ideology other than Islam causing problems for their neighbours in such numbers — but the Bishop is talking about Islam which, as we know and so should he, is constitutionally incapable of coexisting peacefully alongside any other ideology when it is in the majority.

The Bishop’s statement is an indication of wilful ignorance, yes, but it is also a slap in the face to the Christians who are
under threat from Islamic supremacism all over the world (see also here and here). Baines’ ignoring the threat to the Christians of Bradford has betrayed his brothers and sisters in Christ there and has given Islam yet more purchase in the UK. The UK government has not the courage to curb the immigration from Muslim countries which has resulted in this state of affairs, or to stand firm against the sort of tensions which arise when Muslims form a majority in any geographical area.

A charitable explanation for all this might be that Baines is simply afraid to name the dangers of the encroachment of Islam for what they are and to speak out against the Muslim predominance in Bradford. Perhaps he believes that if he had the temerity to speak as plainly as the former Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir Ali, about no-go areas for kufar in parts of the UK he would receive the same
death threats. Baines, however, seems blissfully ignorant that Nazir Ali’s warnings have been borne out in Tower Hamlets in London. If the Synod speech arose out of fear it was motivated in equal measure by Baines making a virtue out of a necessity when he dressed his dhimmitude in the false clothing of Christian humility. From the Telegraph article:

“This is a fantastic opportunity,” he [Baines] told the General Synod, the Church of England’s national assembly, in York.

“It is a challenge, yes, but it’s an opportunity to rethink what it means to be a Christian community. We often ask Muslims to learn what it is to be a Muslim as a minority culture.

“Maybe we could benefit from learning some of the same lessons in some of our cities.”

Really? The poor, mystified fool! He makes the mistake of assuming that just because Christianity would treat minorities with respect, an Islamised Bradford will respect his Church! At base level he must recognise that it will not otherwise he would not be trying so hard to talk up the idea, but, chillingly, he seems not to grasp that Islam will not be satisfied with a finger, or a hand, or even an arm, but that it will not be content until it has consumed him and his kind entirely. Before very long there may not be a Christian community worthy of the name in Bradford!

As Paul Weston writes in
The Multi-Layered Betrayal of Britain on the Gates of Vienna:

“But at the top of the pile sits Islam. Imported and appeased by politicians of all parties, Islam is the real winner here and is promoted as the religion of peace when it is clearly no such thing. Polygamy laws are ignored in order that Muslims may demographically destroy us, laws are introduced to curtail any criticism on pain of exhibiting “Islamophobia”, and money is directed toward them in order that they need not work to house their multiple wives and children even as they plan to overthrow us.

“The rest of us, however — the war veterans, the elderly, the young, the new-born, the indigenous population, the non-Islamic immigrants, the middle-class, the working-class and the Christians — have been betrayed in our entirety.”

And the Rt Rev Nick Baines is complicit in that betrayal.

Not So Long Ago...


The following is an excerpt from the excellent book, The New Concise History of the Crusades:

After Orkhan's death in 1360, the Ottomans began their European conquests in earnest. In 1361, they captured most of Thrace, including Adrianople, which became their capital in the West. By the end of the fourteenth century, they controlled all of Bulgaria and most of Greece. Constantinople itself was completely surrounded — a citizen could leave the empire simply by walking outside the city gates.

The rise of the Ottoman Turks and their successful campaigns to the West dramatically changed the stakes in the crusading movement. It was no longer faraway Palestine that was in danger but western Europe itself. Crusaders had always seen themselves as fighting a defensive war, defending the Christians in the East, Jerusalem, or the faith. Now they were called on to defend themselves. Henceforth, crusades were no longer wars to expand Christendom (to reinstate its existence after Christendom had been largely overrun by Islamic hordes) but desperate attempts to slow the advance of Islam (into Europe). Crusading had become a matter of simple survival.

The destruction of the Crusade of Nicopolis was a devastating defeat for western Europe. Hungary lay virtually defenseless before the sultan's armies, and beyond that was the German Empire. For the first time, Europeans began to consider seriously what life would be like under Turkish occupation, in a world in which there were no Christian states.


Warning To The West


The following is an email we received from a former Muslim. We are reprinting it with his permission:

I was born and raised as Muslim. My name is Abdul Rahman. My whole family is still Muslim. I know the Islamic brain very well. I have lived and breathed with them. I am an insider. I left Islam when I understood Islam is a sick and evil religion. Muslims can fool the gullible West but can’t fool us, the ex-Muslims. On this basis I write the following.

Fighting terrorism is easier than fighting the evil teachings of Islam. These evil teachings are already inside the West. Muslims do not need Osama Bin Laden or Zarqawi to lead them. Their inspiration for violence comes directly from the Quran and from Islamic history. One small independent group of Muslims in the West can create havoc.

Ali Sina, of, thinks he can bring down this 1400 years old religion in his lifetime. Is he dreaming? How can you defeat an enemy who has the following agenda? Also remember that the greatest strength of Muslims is that they do not read any site or books that talk against Islam. Most Muslims do not even read the Quran in their own language.

Who will tell you the truth about Islam? Muslims? Of course not. Muslims can’t even see the evil in Islam. The West? The gullible West has no clue. Then who? Ex-Muslims and ex-Muslims only can expose Islam to the West.

Muslims believe Islam will rule the world, very soon. They are committed to it. The constitution for the new Islamic Republic of EU and USA is under construction. Welcome to the 21st Century Islamic Warfare. To the infidels of the West, Muslims say: We will fight the infidel to death. And they mean it.

Meanwhile, Muslims are able to say with complete confidence:

American laws will protect us.

Democrats and Leftist will support us.

The UNO will legitimize us.

CAIR and MAB will incubate us.

The ACLU will support us.

Western Universities will educate us.

Mosques in the West will shelter us.

OPEC will finance us.

Moderate Muslims will fertilize us.

Hollywood will love us.

Koffi Annan will publish the politically correct sympathetic statements for Jihadists.

We will use your (West) welfare system.

We will take advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When time comes, we will stab America in the back as we did on 9/11 and 7/7, the Islamic way. We will say one thing on the camera (Islam is the religion of peace) and teach another thing (Quran 8:12 Terrorize and behead the infidels wherever you find them) to our children at home.

We will teach our children Islamic supremacy from their earliest childhood. We will take over Europe first and then the U.S. will be the next. We already have a solid ground in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, and now in the U.S.

Who are we? We are the “sleeper cells” next door.

At the time of the real fight we will hold our own children as our armor – this is the Islamic way. When American or Israeli troops shoot at us the world will be watching. Imagine, just imagine the news in the world: “Death of Muslim babies by infidels”.

We say to the West: Keep your Nukes in your curio cabinets. Keep your aircraft carriers and high-tech weaponry in the showcase. You can't use them against us because of your own higher moral standard. We will take the advantage of your (Western) higher moral standard and use it against you. We won’t hesitate to use our children as suicide bombers against you.

The West manufactures their tanks in the factory. We Muslims will manufacture our military force by natural means — by producing more babies. It is cheaper that way. You infidels cannot defeat us. We are 1.2 billion strong and we will double our population again.

Using the Western legal system we will assert our Sharia Laws, slowly but surely.

Moderate Muslims will say there is no link between Islam and terrorism and the West will believe it because the West is so gullible. Moderate Muslims all over the world will inadvertently incubate Jihadists by defending Islam as a religion of peace, by telling this to their children and the world.

There will be more 9/11s in Europe and in America. We will say, “We do not support terrorism but America got what it deserved.”

We will recite the Quran and say Allah-Hu-Akbar before beheading infidels, as we have been doing it. We will videotape those and send them to infidels to watch. The infidels will surrender — ISLAM means surrender.

Islam is the fastest growing religion among convicts in prison all over the word. 30% of French prison inmates are already converted to Islam.

We will use your (Western) own values of kindness against you. You (the West) are destined to lose.

Must be very depressing for you (the West). Isn’t it?

Allah-Hu-Akbar (as we like to say just before beheading you; it means God is Great).

The rules of war and intelligence-gathering that the world has evolved over the last 100 years count on some fundamental laws of humanity. For example there is some Geneva conventions even for the battlefield. For example, even in the battlefield you give enemy a chance to surrender. You do not take random hostages, behead them, videorecord it, and post it on the internet. Generally, a mother will try to save her babies and children — they won’t sacrifice her own babies for her religion. These are basics of morality for the human race and have been for a very long time, even before religions came along.

Modern Islamic warfare did away with all of the above morality. The equation of war has changed. One major mistake the West has made is to believe terrorists need a structural hiarchical power structure to fight an enemy. Islamic teachings prepare Muslims from childhood to act on their own wherever they can — even without the authorization from his/her superiors. No wonder you are seeing so many independent Muslim terrorists all over the world. These are entrepreneur terrorists.

These sleeper cells go beyond national origin, language, race, or citizenship. Terrorists could be British born-and-raised citizens, or American Taliban. There is only one thread that binds them together that is "ISLAM."

My, our (ex-Muslims'), message to the West is until the West identifies, names, and warns the public who the real enemy is, the West won’t have chance to win this war. The real enemy is "Islam." As long as Mr. Bush, Blair, and the other world leaders are afraid to call a spade a spade, and as long as they keep saying in public the blatant lie that “Islam is a religion of peace” — we run the risk losing our freedom.

Our freedom already is curtailed. No major newspapers, magazines, or TV reproduced the Mohammad cartoons in America. They were afraid. So, in effect, 6 million Muslims in America and 1.2 billion Muslims around the globe severely restricted our freedom of expression without officially legislating their Sharia laws that prohibits Mohammad’s caricature. We now have unwritten partial Sharia laws in practice in the USA.

Remember ex-Muslims like me are the insiders. We are exposing Islam to the West so we can enjoy Western freedom. Our websites are:, and

Qur’an 8:67 “It is not fitting for any prophet to have prisoners until he has made a great slaughter in the land.”

Qur’an 8:12 “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”

The author of the above is Abdul Rahman, who goes by an alias to protect himself from Islamic extremists. The Quran is very explicit in its treatment of apostates (people who leave the Muslim faith). The penalty for leaving Islam is death. Once you're in, you're in for good. Read what other apostates have written.

One of the most unusual articles on 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).
