Brigitte Gabriel and radical Islam

Posted by Judy K. Warner on September 6, 2008

Brigitte Gabriel spoke with Jamie Glazov in an interview on FrontPage Magazine yesterday. She is an expert on Islamic terrorism, the founder of ACT! for America and the author of Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America, a riveting book about her life as a Christian in Lebanon who had to live in a bomb shelter with her parents for seven years. It’s riveting. Now she has a new book out, They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.

Ann has written about the Muslim Brotherhood and their long-term project to infiltrate and dominate the west. Gabriel goes into it in the book, and in the interview:

The Muslim Brotherhood project for North America is a detailed document found in Switzerland in 2001. It details a 100 year plan for radical Islam to infiltrate and dominate the West. This document became known in the Intelligence circles as “The Project”. The plan was conceived and written by the Muslim Brotherhood which is the world’s oldest and most sophisticated Islamic terrorist group created in Egypt in 1928. The Muslim Brotherhood boasts seventy off shoot terrorist organizations operating throughout the world. 

The project was dated 1982 and it details strategies and tactics by which Islamists can gradually infiltrate nations and ultimately dominate the world with Islamic political and religious ideology. Some of the most alarming ideas outlined are: incitement to hate and commit violent acts against Jewish, Christian and other non-Muslim entities; using methods other than violence to implement cultural Jihad, and establishing a rapport with western communities until trust is won and Islam is established. The project’s intentions have been implemented throughout the world since its creation.

Keep this in mind when you read some of the things Ann has been posting about Somalis and other Muslims.

Last off-topic post

Posted by Judy K. Warner on September 6, 2008

I didn’t want to end with a negative report, so here, belatedly is more:

RNC report from Minneapolis-St. Paul

 

Wednesday morning we went to the Nebraska breakfast. The scene was like the other two breakfasts. We hung out at the Hilton with campaign staff afterwards and talked to people. We didn’t stay long enough to see John McCain, who stopped in after we left.  

 

Tonight was the complete opposite of last night. After the first hour or so of the parade of speeches by unknown people there was one star after another – Romney, Huckabee, Giuliani – with rousing and pointed speeches. Tonight the theme of the unknowns was prosperity. I hadn’t realized each night had a theme, and last night’s was service. There were the same Hershey-bar signs, but this time they said “Prosperity.” So the unknowns were mostly small-business owners, I think. We were trying to find out where we were supposed to be. Last night we were in general seats. Tonight we were in a box, but it took a while for our handlers to figure out which one. Being in a box helped my mood too. The arena is used for ice hockey, and I think the people in charge forgot this wasn’t an ice hockey game. Last night I froze. The box was free of drafts and full of people, with food and drinks, and very comfortable.

 

But what can I say about Sarah Palin’s speech? You must have seen it. When she walked onto the stage, people leaped to their feet and cheered, and kept clapping for what I was later told was two and a half minutes. It was brilliant, and at the end too it seemed natural to clap and clap and clap, kind of like breathing. There was so much pent-up anger at the media, and joy at Sarah’s presence, that people just exploded.

 

The speeches leading up to her were powerful, and gave the audience the red meat we’d been waiting for. I wonder if Romney, Huckabee and Giuliani gave such good speeches during their campaigns. I don’t think Giuliani did. Somehow Sarah Palin energized everything and everyone.

 

I don’t know if this was shown on TV – Linda Lingle, Governor of Hawaii, giving a speech on Sarah Palin’s qualifications. At one point she said, in relation to executive experience: “What’s Obama’s experience? Zero!” A part of the audience started chanting “Zero, zero, zero,” and others picked it up. They chanted it again later on when Obama was mentioned. We thought of a bumper sticker: “The hero, not the zero.”

 

The next day we had to leave. Jim had been asked to speak at a rally in Sterling Heights, Michigan — the campaign’s second rally after the convention. We were driving, so we had to leave Thursday to get there in time. So we missed the McCain speech. But Jim thought he could contribute more by speaking at the rally, and I think he was right. There were supposed to be about 10,000 people there, but people were sitting on the grass at the back and around the sides, standing everywhere they could fit. People were excited. Some local people spoke, they had some music and the National Anthem, and then Jim spoke just before McCain and Palin came in. He was a huge hit, and after the stars spoke and left we could hardly get out of the place for people wanting to talk to him. Other family members were sitting on the grass at the back, and some people took pictures of them just because they were related to Jim.  This kind of thing always makes me laugh. Of course Jim is a hero, but he’s my husband so I’m used to him. I mean, he doesn’t fly off the roof every day and vanquish villains. But I never tire of hearing his POW stories.

 

We were sitting at the side of the stage and couldn’t see the speakers, but it was okay, because McCain and Palin came right by us on their way in and out. I shook Sarah’s hand. On their way out, Jim stopped John McCain, who seemed startled to see him and exclaimed “Jimmy!” When Jim introduced me, John told me Jim is a hero and one of the funniest guys he knows. His wife Cindy and daughter Bridget were there too, and stood on the stage while the candidates spoke, but I couldn’t see them. 

 

Okay, back to refugees now.

Kansas City Somali population having problems learning English

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 6, 2008

Kansas City is home to 5000 Somalis according to this article from the Kansas City Star and the pressure is on for them and other refugees in Kansas and Missouri to learn English.

Pressure on non-English-speaking people living in the U.S. to learn the language has increased as part of an overall immigration debate, and it promises to be a pivotal issue in the fall elections.

Last year, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius signed legislation making English the state’s official language.

Missouri voters will have a chance to make English their official language when a proposed constitutional amendment goes on the ballot in November. The intention of the amendment is not to deport non-English-speaking residents, but to make English the language “for all official proceedings in Missouri.” So far, 30 states have passed similar laws and others are pending.

Too many refugees, especially Muslims like these Somalis, purposefully segregate themselves in ethnic enclaves and are thus not completely immersed in English.   All the instruction under the sun won’t help if they stay to themselves.

I guess Senator Brownback wasn’t able to keep the Somalis out of Kansas after all.  Maybe they slipped into Missouri first!    It wasn’t for lack of trying, see this 5-year old article by Thomas Allen at VDARE about how refugee advocate Brownback said, bring them to the US, but not to my state.

By the way, we haven’t changed our name to Somali Watch, it’s just that these colorful refugees seem to be getting all the press attention everywhere they go—throughout the world!

South African black businesses want Somalis out

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 6, 2008

Update September 13th:  Retailers back down, apologize and Somali shops can stay.

Update September 11th:  “Talks” begin.

You probably think I’m getting obsessed with South Africa.  I guess I am.  It is because what is happening in the “rainbow nation” demonstrates clearly basic principles of how a country, set up to worship diversity, cannot survive open borders as jobs and resources become scarce.   Note this is not about race, everyone involved is black, but it does involve religion and the advance of Islam throughout the African continent.

Here is the latest on the conflict coming to us from The Mail and Guardian of London.   A chapter of a Chamber of Commerce apparently has threatened Somali street vendors with violence if they continue setting up shops:

The National African Federated Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Nafcoc) in the Western Cape has sent letters to about 200 Somali traders who have returned to the township of Khayelitsha, warning them to close their shops or face physical violence.

The Mail & Guardian has seen the letters, sent by a group of Khayelitsha traders belonging to Nafcoc and operating as the Zanokhanyo Retailers Association.

The traders tell Somali shopkeepers to close their shops by September 21 or they will “resolve to much higher actions that will include physically fighting” for their rights.

A Nafcoc representative responded that the foreigners (Somalis) are killing their businesses, their children are hungry and when they complain they are called “xenophobic.”

…. Nafcoc’s Western Cape secretary, Mandise Njoli, said that the Somalis “fight civil wars in their own countries and then come here and take away our livelihood. Maybe we should start a civil war so that they will leave our communities.”

He added that the Somali traders “are Arabs and they’re in our country illegally. Why can’t they be kept in refugee camps?

“We’re all members of Nafcoc and we are dying here,
my sister. Our children are hungry. These people work for two cents and when we complain about the unfair advantage, then we’re called xenophobic,” Njoli said.

“We can’t even do business with these people because today he calls himself Abdul and tomorrow he is Muhamed. During the day Shoprite takes our business and during the night, it’s the foreigners.

“The Somalis are Arabs and Muslims and those countries have lots of money and they’re helping their countrymen. Our own country and democracy, which we paid so dearly for, does nothing to help us.”

The signer of the controversial letter, Sydwell Citwa, chairperson of Zanokhanyo Retailers, went on to reiterate that their children are hungry and the Muslims are getting an unfair advantage from the Islamic power structure in South Africa.   And, afterall, he says, we (black South Africans) fought and died for democracy, and what do we get for it.

Our problem is simple: We are hungry. We are angry. And the Somalis are undercutting us.

“These people come into the country with nothing and the next minute they have stocked shops and fridges. We’ve done our research and we know that the Muslim Judicial Council [MJC] is helping them because they’re Muslim.

“We also want help from our government because we gave them power. We are the ones who fought for freedom and democracy and now these Somalis are here eating our democracy,” Citwa said.

To new readers of Refugee Resettlement Watch, the US State Department has allowed over 82,000 Somali refugees to enter the US in recent years.   Why do we think that an implosion, like in South Africa, could not happen here?

IRC pushing Biden for hearings on Iraqi refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 6, 2008

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is one of the top ten volags resettling refugees in the US.  They have a vested interest in bringing more refugees to America (federal funding is allocated by the head) and are now rounding up their friends and urging Senator Biden to hold hearings in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the Iraqi “humanitarian crisis.”   Here is what they told their good friend Senator Biden:

Specifically, we strongly believe the United States government must develop and implement a wide-ranging response strategy that looks at the Iraqi humanitarian crisis, particularly the displacement, in a holistic way and allows for a sustained response over an extended period of time. In that regard, we would respectfully request that the Committee on Foreign Relations hold a hearing during the remaining time of the 110th session of Congress to assess the continuing needs of vulnerable Iraqis and to investigate alternatives for a comprehensive response.

Visit the letter from the IRC to Biden and see the groups and churches behind this effort.  Keep in mind that these churches get federal funding for their refugee work.

As one of the chief advocates for bringing more refugees to the US and paying church groups and other non-profits with your tax dollars, Biden is already on board, he won’t require much urging.   Having such hearings is also a handy way of reminding voters that the Bush Administration screwed up in Iraq.

You can learn more about the IRC here.

The latest information on Iraqi refugees arriving in the US is here.
