There are some strange points on this video.  If America is a dictatorship, then why isn’t Obama -instead of going through the normal election procedure – just staging a coup, like his ideological brother, Hitler, or any of the other socialist dictators?

What Qadhafi leaves out is that dictatorships don’t exist in republican forms of government, neither do they exist in democracies.

What a twisted reality this guy shares with that of people like Farrakhan…who received his message about Reagan’s plan about Libya from little green men in a spaceship.

This video regarding Al-Muhajirun’s former spokesman, Hassan Butt, follows up the two previous ones regarding Al-Muhajirun.

It’s REALLY hard to figure out just when exactly Butt is telling the truth; he’s come out with three different points of view inside of a 10-year period; maybe everything he says is peppered with lies. He was an outspoken spokesperson for al-muhajirun, then he ‘reformed’ and now he’s claiming he made it all made up. This is just too convenient, since the reason he started singing like a bird THIS time is because he was on his way to Pakistan and was detained by the MI5. Apparently, he must have thought that if he renounced terrorism, then he would be given a pass – but it appears there are some Britons who would like to see him pay for the crimes he has committed.

So no problem, “I lied!”

And all is forgiven, right?

It’s too bad, because it seemed that…for just a short while…he had come to his senses. He was even working on a book about his turnaround, called “Leaving Al Qaeda”, and being that he’s been interviewed by the BBC, CBS, Prospect magazine and The Sunday Times, it should come as no surprise that they’re all resisting turning over to the court- the material like notes they took during the course of their interview work on Butt. The police themselves, according to the journalists who want to protect Butt, will be under scrutiny for their counter terrorism work. I find that hard to believe with all his public admissions he made early on and all the crazies associated with al-Muhajidun, some of whom are in jail – and at least one who is waiting to be extradicted. Journalists were not interviewing a lone young man – there were others in the interviews, who seemed to verify what it was he was saying, and surely journalists wouldn’t have swallowed a complete line of BS, now, would they? They seem all too eager to promote the lies of terrorists as long as the lies come out to the terrorists’ benefit.

The extremist who turned into a moderate

Hassan Butt speaking before 7/7

“I would rather be a traitor to Britain than to my religion” November 2001

“I have direct responsibility for the British recruits. It is my job to get them into the training camps here where they prepare for war” In Pakistan, November 2001

“If they do return, I believe they will take military action within Britain” January 2002, of the British Mujahidin

“This is all about jihad in Manchester. My message to all Muslims is that they should be supporting jihad no matter how hard it is becoming. All the laws the British Government make, they should break” October 2002

“ I feel absolutely nothing for this country. I have no problem with the British people . . . but if someone attacks them I have no problem with that either” 2004

Speaking after 7/7

“What I’ve come to realise is that killing for the sake of killing, and killing in the name of Islam for the sake of killing, is completely and utterly prohibited” March 2007

“Some \ believed the bombings were orchestrated by the Government . . . Others believed it was near-impossible for four British-born Muslims to be behind such indiscriminate violence . . . Two years on I still hear the same conspiracy theories being clung to by a Muslim community that is living in a comforting state of denial” July 2007, on 7/7

“Only when Muslims admit that 9/11 and 7/7 were the work of Muslim terrorists can we move forward to the next juncture: which is recognising the hard truth that Islam does permit the use of violence” July 2007

~~~~~~~~~~~~

AIM asked Was CBS Duped by Radical Islamist? Yeah…but it’s hard to tell precisely what about this thing is a lie.

Hassan Butt was arrested at the end of May 2008 while he was trying to board a flight to Pakistan held for questioning, and finally released in early June. Interestingly enough, my fairly recent fight on youtube with an islamist that has claimed the al-muhajirun name on youtube – but has a NUMBER for an account name – out of London – was what drew my attention to this; as I had THOUGHT that the al-Muhajirun organization was supposed to be ‘defunct’.

It’s funny how bloggers are attracted to certain stories while they ignore updates on stories they’ve blogged about in the past….it feels like a high school contest for Homecoming Queen sometimes…what blogs get links, what blogs are noticed by the bigger bloggers, etc.

At any rate, I found the Butt story rather interesting and it fit right into the war I’m waging against the Islamist on youtube – who – in my opinion, should have his account revoked for spreading terrorist propaganda.

The Times UK Online has an article…

Police face scrutiny over the arrest of radical jihadist who renounced violence
Media organisations will clash with Greater Manchester Police in court this week over moves to force them to hand over ‘evidence’

The media, which seems to serve as terrorists’ man servants and works hand in hand with terrorists like Bilal Hussein – is resisting turning over any ‘evidence’. Don’t you just love how they have that word “evidence” in quotes.?

Why the drag lines were removed from the Flight 93 crash site

Blogburst logo, petition

When the passengers and crew of flight 93 smashed their murderers to nothing on an open expanse of western Pennsylvania coal country, two towering sentinels stood silent witness to the heroic tragedy.

“Up on Skyline Rd.,” the news shot around Shanksville and Somerset, “up by the drag lines”:

Drag lines from Bowl

It is hard to imagine a more fitting marker than these twin colossi. Before the hijackers could send Flight 93 into the White House or the Capitol building, a random draw of forty of our fellow countrymen massed a towering determination to fight back. Their effort to save their own lives ended beneath those artifacts of Pennsylvania’s own native grit and ingenuity, but their success in defending their country will live forever.

Those silent sentinels could and should have endured as well, and they would have, if not for one man who was determined to see them go: architect Paul Murdoch, the designer of the terrorist memorializing Crescent of Embrace design. As the press reported at the unveiling of the crescent design:

The Flight 93 temporary memorial, the draglines and Skyline Drive will be removed to leave the landscape as natural as possible, Murdoch wrote in a narrative that accompanied the design.

The drag lines were supposed to stay

The presumption from the beginning was that the drag lines would stay. They were actually the first items of property purchased for the new national park.

Support for keeping the drag lines, whatever memorial design was chosen for the crash site itself, was virtually universal. The local historical society was for keeping the drag lines:

Several draglines still stand there, idled since the crash interrupted the mine work. Randy Cooley, director of the Southwest Pennsylvania Heritage Preservation Commission, said that equipment should stay, as part of the story the memorial will tell.The excavating machines often are the first things visitors to the memorial site see, he said. The booms rise high over the field. They cast shadows, and show what the land once was.

“They’re touchstones,” Cooley said. “For many of the people on that plane, that may well have been the last thing they saw.” [2003]

They were also meaningful to the local population:

The cranes, which served as drag lines for a long-idled strip mining operation, are synonymous with the area, residents said.“When I think of (Skyline Drive), I think of those drag lines,” said Erica Zeigler, president of Shanksville Borough Council. “They’re something everybody around here associated with that road.” [2005]

Memorial Project manager Jeff Reinbold acknowledged the hard feelings about the removal of the drag lines:

“You wish you didn’t have to do it. But this was a celebration of the process,” he said. [ibid.]

Why was Murdoch determined to have the drag lines gone?

Because a crescent that Muslims face into to face Mecca is called a mihrab, and is the central feature around which every mosque is built. (Some mihrabs are pointed-arch shape, but the prototypical mihrab is crescent shaped.)

Very simply, Murdoch could not allow his terrorist memorial mosque to be tainted by extraneous infidel artifacts. Those drag lines would have risen up right behind the giant mihrab, disturbing what is supposed to be an undisturbed space within which the Muslim believer can turn face his god for prayer.

Perhaps worst of all from Murdoch’s perspective was the huge American flag that coal miners attached to one of the booms the week after 9/11:

Drag line with flag

This flag was history. If Murdoch did not get rid of the drag lines, he could not get rid of the American flag, rising up 180 feet behind his giant mihrab. (Photo by Alec Rawls, 2006.)

Unacceptable: the jihadists turn to face their god, and see… an American flag?

This mosque interpretation is no stretch. Murdoch provides endless redundant proof of intent, as when he repeats the Mecca orientation of his giant crescent in the crescents of trees that surround the Tower of Voices part of the memorial.

Still hoisting a flag

When the hijacker is finally tackled and we have a chance to turn to less critical matters, like how to design a proper memorial to OUR heroes instead of to Paul Murdoch’s heroes, one of the costs to be accounted will be the loss of the iconic drag lines. At least Murdoch was not able to destroy them entirely, as 22 tons of steel from the scrapped machinery is being used in the construction of the USS Somerset:

USS San Antonio, sister of USS Somerset

The USS Somerset will be a sister ship of the USS San Antonio (seen here), so the drag lines will still be hoisting a flag.

Interestingly, the single physical requirement set down for design competition entries was that they should respect the rural landscape and leave it as it was. Paul Murdoch’s crescent design is the only one of a thousand entries that violates this lone rule, first by building a raised causeway across the wetlands (necessary to extend his crescent to the full typical Islamic crescent shape, covering 2/3rds of a circle of arc), and then by excising the drag lines, which everyone agreed were central to the historic nature of the site.

A call for America’s churches to step up as witnesses for the truth about the Flight 93 memorial

Blogburst logo, petition

Three segments of American society get paid to investigate and report facts: academia, the press, and government. For two and a half years, all three have been spinning desperately to avoid and suppress the facts about Islamic and terrorist memorializing symbolism in the Flight 93 memorial.

Luckily there is a fourth segment of society that is also charged to witness truth, not for pay, but on religious principle. Asked by Pilate to account for himself, Jesus answered:

To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. [Jn. 18:37.]

Those who follow Jesus are supposed to do the same, which means first of all checking and reporting the facts when the importance of an issue warrants it.

The importance of the Flight 93 memorial to our churches could not be clearer. The Islam of the al Qaeda terrorists who attacked us on 9/11 is a religion of murder and deceit. Their self-professed strategy is to hide amongst us, pretending to be trustworthy friends, while plotting mass-murder against Christians, Jews, and all non-Muslims.

Whether this religion of deceit is the “true” Islam, as the bin Ladenists assert, or a bastardization of it, a deceptive memorial to the 9/11 terrorists is a direct challenge to the truth witnessing capacity of our society, and to the truth witnessing character of our Christian churches.

In a contest between deceit and honesty, there is no doubt which is stronger. Witness exposes and destroys deceit. If our churches enter this contest, they win. But will they enter? THAT is the test. If our churches stand by, and fail to witness truth, then the al Qaeda religion of murder and deceit may well succeed in stabbing its terrorist memorial mosque into the heartland of America.

The father of one of our Flight 93 heroes is asking America’s churches for help

In consultation with Tom Burnett Sr., Alec Rawls has put together a flyer that all of us can take to our local churches to try to organize sanctioned fact-checking efforts that our churches can stand behind publicly two months from now.

August 2nd is the next public meeting of the Memorial Project. Tom and Alec will both be traveling to Somerset PA to rally opposition. Mancow Muller is urging his national radio audience to attend, and groups like Rolling Thunder are also being contacted.

With Mr. Burnett in attendance, even a modest turnout will bring substantial news coverage, but coverage alone is not enough. We are facing a fact-checking blockade by the mainstream media, and can only break it by enlisting churches or other independent groups to sponsor their own fact checking efforts.

Are you a member of any kind of group where interested members could set up an ad hoc committee to check a few basic facts about the planned memorial? The full group or chapter could then make an official decision whether to stand behind this fact checking publicly in a press release that Tom and Alec can announce at the August meeting.

Christian churches may be our best bet, being charged by Jesus to be witnesses for truth, and having “chapters” all over America. Thus this initial effort is addressed in particular to our churches, but any group that wants to expose important truths can perform the same service.

The flyer prints out front and back on a single sheet of paper. It has a couple of color graphics, but prints fine in black and white for inexpensive copying. If you want to participate, just add your contact info at the bottom (the file is MS Word and can be altered), then go see if you can raise some interest!

The rest of this post is an HTML version of the flyer that can be copied and pasted into email.

The Flight 93 memorial is a terrorist memorial mosque!

Witnesses for truth NEEDED to check and report the facts

The father of one of our Flight 93 heroes is asking America’s churches for help.

Remember the Crescent of Embrace design for the Flight 93 memorial, laid out in the configuration of an Islamic crescent and star flag?

Memorial and flag stacked, 400px

Outrage over this clear Islamic symbolism forced the Memorial Project to agree to make changes, but all they did was slightly disguise the giant crescent. It is still described as a “broken circle,” and the unbroken part of the circle (the crescent) remains exactly as it was.

It turns out that this half-mile wide crescent points almost exactly to Mecca. A crescent that Muslims face into to face Mecca is called a mihrab, and is the central feature around which every mosque is built. The Flight 93 memorial will be the world’s largest mosque by a factor of a hundred.

The design also includes numerous terrorist memorializing features, like the 44 inscribed translucent memorial blocks that are to be placed along the flight path (matching the number of passengers, crew, AND terrorists). Tom Burnett Sr. does not want Tom Jr.’s name inscribed on that terrorist memorializing sequence, and is leading the effort to have the crescent design scrapped completely.

The obstacle is the three parts of our society that we pay to check and report the facts: academia, the press, and government. All three are spinning desperately to keep the truth suppressed here. On the rare occasion when the Mecca-orientation claim or the 44 blocks claim gets in the newspaper, some left-wing academic or a spokesman for the Memorial Project is quoted denying it, but the press never checks and reports the facts.

It takes less than two minutes to verify that the giant crescent DOES point to Mecca. Just open up the Mecca-direction calculator at Islam.com and print out the direction to Mecca from Somerset PA (ten miles from the crash site). Place it over the crescent site-plan on your computer screen, and you’ll see that the Mecca direction line bisects the crescent:

CrescentBisector, high contrast for B W printing, 55%

Stand midway between the crescent tips and face into the center of the crescent (red arrow) and you will be facing almost exactly at Mecca (“qibla”). (Click pic for animated demonstration.)

It is even easier to verify the 44 glass blocks on the flight path: just open up the design drawings and count. It is easy to check the numerous repeated Mecca orientations; the placement of the 9/11 date in the exact position of the star on an Islamic flag; etcetera.

The First Estate

Our second, third and fourth estates are trying to keep these facts suppressed, but there is another segment of our society that is also charged to witness the truth, not for pay, but on religious principle. Asked by Pilate to account for himself, Jesus answered:

To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. [Jn. 18:37.]

Those who follow Jesus are supposed to do the same, which means first of all checking and reporting the facts when the importance of an issue warrants it.

A deceptive memorial to the 9/11 terrorists is a direct challenge to the truth witnessing capacity of our society, and to the truth witnessing character of our Christian churches. There is no doubt which is stronger. Witness exposes deceit. If our churches enter this contest, they win, but if they stand by, and fail to witness truth, then deceit wins.

Mr. Burnett and his compatriots will be rallying in Somerset PA on August 2nd at the next public meeting of the Memorial Project. The resulting news coverage can be used to break the media blockade on fact checking, so long as at least a few churches are willing to sanction fact-checking efforts and release their findings to the public.

Please volunteer for this fact-checking effort, and help to promote it amongst pastors and parishioners. America needs its First Estate (its churches) to take a leading role, and witness the truths about this terrorist memorial that our media elites are trying to hide.
