No, Mitt Romney Didn’t “Praise” Hezbollah’s Health Care System

By Gary P Jackson

Let me start out by saying I really like Pamela Geller. She is good people. She is one of the leaders in fighting against radial Islam. However, here she is just wrong. At least about the facts from this 2007 video, when Romney was running for president :

It’s pretty easy to understand what Romney is saying here. He was asked about the efforts of George W Bush to eradicate AIDS in Africa. Bush spent more money fighting AIDS than any president. A noble effort. It also bought America a whole lot of good will in Africa.

The lady in the video asks if he would continue Bush’s support of humanitarian efforts around the world. During his answer Mitt mentions the fact that after elections in Lebanon, Hezbollah showed up with all kinds of aid. They built hospitals, gave people free health care and so on. Now OF COURSE this bought the terrorists a lot of good will.

Mitt didn’t praise Hezbollah, he simply used them as an example. Now if it had been me, I would have noted they were terrorists, and added one of the reasons the United States should be helping where it can, is to counterbalance groups like Hezbollah, who do offer people social services in many countries, in order to buy goodwill and support. But that’s just me.

If anything, Mitt is guilty of assuming his audience “got” what he meant, and we all know what happens when one assumes.

You can accuse Mitt of being inarticulate all day long. He is. Never seen a guy who was better at starting a good thought, but never finishing it, as Mitt Romney. But that’s his problem here, not that he’s supporting Hezbollah.

I’ve said over and over the last few months that I’m not a Mitt Romney fan, but I find myself defending him a lot lately over things like this, and Newt’s despicable ads in Florida claiming Mitt supports Castro.

Call Mitt dumb and I’ll stand with you. Call him inarticulate and I’ll stand with you. But don’t take things out of context.

All of these candidates for president are flawed. Flawed enough that one doesn’t have to do this sort of thing to hammer any of them. We shouldn’t do this to any candidate.

Pamela may be right about Romney and his overall cluelessness about radical Islam, but she’s off base with the video.

Terrorist Group Threatening Free Speech in USA and Winning, Pamela Geller Gets Death Threats

By Gary P Jackson

Ran across an article by Pamela Geller [Atlas Shrugs] that really pissed me off.

It seems the Islamic terror front group CAIR is threatening free speech in America by demanding the FBI go after anyone who dares criticize Islam.

CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case, the largest terrorism-finance trial in American history. During the trial, FBI Agent Lara Burns testified that CAIR was a front for the terrorist group Hamas. Other front groups, many that pose as charity, or advocacy groups, were also named as unindicted co-conspirators.

Patrick Poole at PJ Media reports the FBI and other law enforcement agencies have been told to cut ties with these terror groups:

When Barack Obama signed the continuing resolution this past weekend averting another potential government shutdown, it’s doubtful that he was aware that tucked into the bill, which funds several federal agencies through the fiscal year and extends the continuing resolution for the rest of the government until December 16, is a provision that may dramatically impact what Islamic groups and leaders the FBI and other law enforcement agencies can continue to work with.

Details here.

Even though the FBI has a directive, CAIR is still actively pressuring them to shut down the Free Speech, and the dissemination of facts about radical Islam, and groups such as theirs.

From Pamela:

Hamas-linked nazi goup CAIR is now monitoring blog comments and demanding that websites critical of Islam be shut down. That any rational freedom lover would listen to these killers is beyond the pale. Across the web, I have seen calls for a holocaust II, killing Jews, killing conservatives, killing Blacks, etc. I have been called a neo-kikess while being libeled, smeared and defamed. CAIR is libel machine.

Calls for my death and execution have been posted to youtube, twitter and other websites.

The death threats and calls for genocide are daily. Just today, there’s this comment:

xxxsampsonxxxX has made a comment on Pamela Geller vs Imam on CNN Sunday:

THIS BITCH SHOULD GET SHOT. I H8 HER

The blood libel against Israel organ trafficking in Haiti was started in the notoriously anti-Jewish Huffington Post comment section. Anti-semitism is raging in the pages of the NY Times, Time magazine, LA Times, etc. Nothing was ever said or done — that’s free speech.

I condemn all calls for killing and genocide.

CAIR has demanded that the FBI “investigate” BNI because of comments. WordPress (the blog platform) responded by shutting down BNI.

I don’t know what was said at Bare Naked Islam. Some of what I see I would not host or post on Atlas. But I don’t CAIR. The difference between an exchange of ideas and an exchange of blows is self-evident.

Read more here.

Freedom of Speech is our most precious right in America. I agree with Pamela, we MUST defend every American’s right to Free Speech. Especially that speech we find most reprehensible.

I know many of us were sickened when the United States Supreme Court sided with those despicable sewer dwellers at Westboro Baptist Church, who have made it their life’s work protesting at the funerals of our honored military heroes. This disgusting left wing “church is as foul as foul gets. That said, they have a right to make asses out of themselves, and we have the right to counter their speech, with speech of our own. This is what Freedom and Liberty looks like. It’s messy, but it’s supposed to be.

One of the reasons I wrote of the dangers of a certain presidential candidate recently, was his championing of legislation that was a direct threat to Free Speech.

Popular speech never needs defending. It’s the speech that curdles your blood that must be defended most vigorously. Remember, if the government can take away the speech you don’t like, it can also take away the speech you DO like, as well.

There are however certain limits to speech, most are common sense, like the proverbial “shouting fire in a crowded theater.”

Freedom of Speech also requires responsibly. Irresponsible, and threatening speech, has its consequences.

People calling for the death of others, in a public setting, such as the internet, may have the right to say it, but again, with that right, also comes responsibility.

It’s incredibly irresponsible to call for someone’s death in an open forum, even if you are just frustrated. As we have seen, others can be motivated by this sort of thing, and inspired to act.

When it comes to radical Muslims, you can almost bet on it.

Muslim extremists have a long history of making good on death threats. It’s why many people are so afraid to criticize, or even make fun of them.

Notice that “brave” liberals will bash Christians from now until the end of time, because, for the most part, Christians don’t cut your head off when you do disgusting things like putting a crucifix in a jar of piss, or cutting out vaginas from porn magazines and pasting them all over the Virgin Mary. Instead that’s called “art..” [And many times paid for with taxpayer funded grants!]

Don’t you dare draw a cartoon depicting Mohammed though! [unless you have a death wish]

Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Supreme Leader of Iran, issued a “fatwa calling for Salman Rushdie’s death in 1989 after his book The Satanic Verses was published.

Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was slaughtered in the streets after making Submission, a film that exposes the horrible way women are treated in Islamic culture.

Of course, who could forget the episode of South Park, where Mohammed was depicted. [after much censoring] The U.K.Gardian noted:

A posting on the website of the US-based group, Revolution Muslim, warned Stone and Parker they would “probably wind up like Theo van Gogh” if the images were broadcast.

It posted a graphic photo of Van Gogh, a Dutch filmmaker who was stabbed to death in 2004 by an Islamic militant over a movie he had made that accused Islam of condoning violence against women. The post, which has since been removed, also included a link to a news article which contained details of a house in Colorado that the writers are thought to co-own and listed the addresses of Comedy Central’s New York office and the show’s production office in California.

The car bomb that was found near the Viacom offices in Time Square, last year, was thought to be a result of South Park’s depiction of Mohammed.

This sort of thing, make death threats against those who insult Mohammad, is the sort of speech one is free to make in this country, but it’s also the sort of irresponsible speech that must have consequences.

Radical Jihadis aren’t the sort to call for people’s death, as away to blow off steam. They generally follow through with their threats. Or inspire others to do it for them.

Instead of allowing terror front groups like CAIR to pervert our system of justice, our law enforcement authorities need to be spending their time investigating death threats coming from these Jihadis.

Some may think Pamela goes too far by calling the bunch from CAIR “Nazis,” but she is historically correct. People forget Islam isn’t just a religion, it’s a complete political and “justice” system that calls itself a religion. It’s a socialist form of politics.

Before WWII got up to speed, Haj Amin al-Husseini, the “Grand Mufti” allied himself, and Islam, with the Nazis.

The History Channel ran a documentary a while back that talks about Islam’s alliance with Adolf Hitler, and the Nazis:

Pamela Geller has an extensive file on this. It’s an absolute must read for those who want to understand what we are dealing with. It’s one of the best collections of facts and photos detailing Amin al-Husseini’s collaboration with the Nazis. You must take a look.

I bring this up to remind people that Islam is a form of socialism, just as Nazism is. Remember that Nazi is short for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or National Socialist German Workers’ Party. It’s probably why so many democrats find themselves siding with Islam over America, in many ways. Also why the hatred of Jews and Israel is so deeply entrenched within the democrat party. Let’s not forget, socialists [and communists] took control of the democrat party long ago.

We need to remember these radical Muslims are ruthless and are not afraid of using violence to make their point.

They are also devious, and know how to use a free society’s rules against those they target. For example, militant groups like CAIR understand that political correctness has taken control and common sense no longer plays a role in American society. Especially when it comes to speaking out against groups, who wish to harm America.

We are our own worst enemy.

Groups like CAIR exercise their right to Free Speech to it’s absolute fullest, while working night and day to prevent you from doing the same. This is unacceptable.

CAIR, like the NAACP, La Raza, and other left wing minority groups, play the race card, religion card, and any other “victim” card available, to stifle the Constitutional rights of all who oppose them. They get away with it because good people sit back and allow it, rather than fight back, often too afraid of being labeled a “racist” or some other form of bigot.

As a nation we must stand together, and make sure groups like CAIR don’t bully authorities into violating OUR First Amendment rights. We must demand any group that tries be examined, and their motives discovered. We can’t let these group destroy the American way of life.

Brave men and women DIED, and are still dying, so that we can enjoy Freedom and Liberty. It’s all for nothing if we don’t stand up and join the fight as well.

Like any other group, as vile as CAIR is, I’ll defend their right to spew their nasty rhetoric, because the answer to vile speech isn’t censorship, it’s MORE speech.

It seems many in power have forgotten this.

I won’t defend the un-American actions they are currently engaged in though.

I stand with Pamela Geller, a true Champion of Liberty and Freedom. I urge all of our readers to do the same.

Pamela Geller Joins Sarah Palin As One Of The 10 Biggest Conservative Stand-outs Of 2010

By Gary P Jackson

Pamela Geller is someone I admire greatly. She’s tough, smart, and as courageous as they come. Her website, Atlas Shrugs is one of the must read sites on the internet. Pamela is like a one woman army as she exposes radical Islam and the violence and death that comes with it.

Pamela has been the leading voice of opposition to the so-called Cordoba House Project, what I like to call the 9/11 Victory Mosque.

Students of history will tell you stories of the Islamic conquest of Cordoba, Spain, around 766 A.D., and how they took control of a Christian church and build a grand mosque in it’s place, as a symbol of Islamic dominance worldwide. You might say they were rubbing the noses of the conquered in their victory.

The Muslim extremists want to build the Cordoba House on the hallowed ground of the 9/11 attacks, right at Ground Zero, as a sign they have conquered America.To rub our noses in 9/11.

Pamela Geller has taken up the fight and said: “Not on my watch pal!

Right Wing News has chosen the Top 10 Conservatives who really made a difference in 2010. From their tribute to Pamela:

Pamela Geller: Pamela runs the pre-eminent anti-radical Islam website on the Internet Atlas Shrugs, she’s in charge of Stop Islamization of America and she had a new book out, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.

However, Pamela makes this list because she, more than any other person, was on point in the fight against the mosque at Ground Zero. Right from the beginning she was organizing protests and drawing attention to the project. Meanwhile, she was falsely slurred and attacked by the Left, the mainstream media, and apologists for radical Islam. That was simply because she refused to stand by and say nothing while a celebratory mosque was built in the shadow of the Twin Towers. If the Ground Zero Victory Mosque isn’t ultimately built, no one will deserve more of the credit than Pamela Geller.

Back in October RWN’s John Hawkins interviewed Pamela. If you haven’t read it, please take the time to go here and do so.

Pamela is joined on by Sarah Palin on the list. They had this to say about their choice for the top slot:

Sarah Palin: It might be easier to ask: What has Sarah Palin not done this year? She was one of the most effective voices in the fight against Obamacare, she became a popular Fox News contributor, she just released a new book, she has her own TV show Sarah Palin’s Alaska, and she was a force of nature in the 2010 elections where she raised millions, swung primaries with her endorsements, and did more to get women candidates elected this cycle than anyone else in history. Say what you want about Sarah Palin, but nobody in American politics had a bigger and better year than she did in 2010.

We are proud to join Right Wing News in saluting Pamela Geller, one of America’s true patriots and a staunch defender of Liberty and Freedom.

Pamela Geller: You Bet’Cha! Sarah Palin Joins The Fight Against The Ground Zero Mosque

By Gary P Jackson

Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugs) is one of the leading voices in America when it comes to speaking out against radical Islam, and the dangers this ideology poses world wide. Pamela has been fighting tirelessly against the proposed mosque the radicals want to build near Ground Zero, the hallowed ground where over 3000 people were slaughtered by radical Islamists.

Sarah Palin has weighed in on the issue as well, calling on peaceful Muslims world wide to refute the radical ideology, as well as this mosque. She also called on peaceful New yorkers to do the same:

From Pamela, via World Net Daily:

G-d, I love this woman! Palin nailed it. Here’s an issue no politician will touch, even though polls show that most Americans oppose the construction of this Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero. The politicians – Mayor Bloomberg, Rep. Nadler, Andrew Cuomo and the rest of them – are so fearful of being labeled “bigots,” they will throw their own people under a bus.

But Palin won’t. When she resigned as governor of Alaska, I predicted that she would soon be leading a new revolution of American patriots. And she is doing so. She is not afraid of the jackals, hyenas and vultures who troll her home, her garbage cans and her most prized possession, her children. She is unbowed. She has spine, character, ethics, integrity and above all, true grit.

I am proud to be a National Advisory Board member of Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin. If she runs for president, I’ll be right behind her.

Palin has sided with Americans and American interests. Palin, once again, does the right right. And it’s wildly refreshing. The Left is twisted in knots. That’s what she does. She twists up the morally bankrupt liberals. The Islamic supremacist mega-mosque that liberal politicians support is a stab in the eye of every American. The question is, why there? Why did the terror-tied Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the leader of the initiative to build the mega-mosque at Ground Zero, spend nearly $5 million in cash to buy the property for a triumphal mosque a mere 600 feet from the site of the largest attack – an Islamic attack – on American soil in our history?

There have been 15,644 Islamic attacks across the world since Sept. 11, 2001. Each one had the imprimatur of an Islamic cleric. What is being done to expunge the Quran of the violent texts that inspire jihad? If Rauf is really a moderate, why isn’t he spending his time working on that instead of trying to build this mega-mosque?

Rauf’s wife, Daisy Khan, responded to Palin’s statement with soothing words:

We agree with Ms. Palin that it is time to heal from the wounds of the tragic events of 9/11. We peace-loving Muslims have a responsibility to lead the effort of rebuilding Lower Manhattan. We envision a community center for multi-faith collaboration that is focused on promoting integration, tolerance of difference and community cohesion. We welcome the opportunity to discuss with Ms. Palin how Muslim Americans have an added responsibility to create a counter-momentum against extremism by building institutions like this center, that will amplify the voices of the mainstream peace-loving Muslims.

Yet there is a great deal of evidence that Daisy Khan is not being honest: Rauf himself has been patently dishonest. Bloomberg and the rest should take note. They haven’t. Yet Rauf dissembled about whether his 13-story “community center for multi-faith collaboration” at Ground Zero would contain a mosque at all.

While Daisy Khan speaks about “promoting integration, tolerance of difference and community cohesion,” and Rauf has told American reporters that the mosque should encourage religious dialogue, he has told the Arabic media that he doesn’t believe in religious dialogue. He told American media that the mosque would be funded only by Muslims in America, but he told the Arabic press that it was getting funding from Muslim countries worldwide. He portrays himself as a moderate, but openly supports Shariah (Islamic law) and recently refused to denounce Hamas.

Nonetheless, his response and the response of other mosque organizers to the overwhelming pain this mosque has caused has been ad hominem attacks. The opponents of the mosque are smeared as “racists,” “bigots” and “Islamophobes.”

I find the Cordoba Initiative’s callousness toward the grief it is causing radically intolerant. But only Sarah Palin among high-profile politicians has dared to say so.

And even though Bloomberg and all the other New York establishment politicians have lined up in favor of the mega-mosque, the game is not over by a long shot. New Yorkers have witnessed how a tiny fish stalled and effectively killed a wonderful project for the rotting West Side Highway and wharfs. We have seen the city impose draconian smoking regulations, automobile and traffic regulations and even restaurant food bans (transfats). But this mosque is getting unprecedented rapid-fire action: cooperation from city officials who hadn’t moved in 15 years before they started moving on this. There is more grease on these wheels than in the Gulf.

By contrast, Palin restates the obvious. She is unafraid, and so she just gets better and better – and she was brilliant to begin with. And Palin is onto Obama, and has consistently taken him on, again unafraid. It is no wonder that the post-American president and his left-wing thugs are scared to death of her.

This is what the leader of the free world should sound like. The woman is singular. She takes on all comers in defense of liberty and America’s founding principles. She has more testicular fortitude than all of the GOP. The Left quakes at the mere mention of her name. No matter how the destroyers come at her, she never backs down, never gives up, never gives in. Is it any wonder that the New York Times ran a front-page story on Palin’s emergence as the most influential figure in Republican politics? If the Times is admitting it, pigs are flying.

Obama’s hatred of the good for being the good manifests itself in his contempt for Sarah Palin. His contempt is a badge of honor.

Palin is everything Obama isn’t: quintessentially American, proud, patriotic, decent and good. Sarah has something Obama can only dream of – heart and soul. Her courageous opposition to this mega-mosque, while the politically correct flock to endorse it, shows that once again.

My organization, Stop Islamization Of America, is holding another peaceful protest against the Ground Zero mega mosque on Sept. 11. Be there.

It’s now or never. This is a game-changer.

Pamela has more about this at her website here.

In case you are wondering, 52 percent of New Yorkers agree with Pamela and Sarah on this deal.

Pamela Geller is a true Patriot, and a defender of Liberty and Freedom. A real inspiration to the rest of us. Pamela’s lead in this fight is exemplary.We must all stand with her, just as Sarah is.

Pamela mentions the Cordoba Initiative in her writings. People need to understand the significance, to radical Islam, of placing a mosque on the site where so many people were slaughtered by their Muslim brothers on 911.

The Cordoba Initiative is named for the city of Cordoba in Spain. In 711 Cordoba was captured by Muslims armies. It became the capitol of the Caliphate of Córdoba. The Muslims ruled until 1031, when infighting caused the whole thing to collapse. To Muslims, the conquest of Cordoba was a great victory over the infidels. You can read more here and here.

Symbols are very important in the Muslim world, and to radical Islam, the Cordoba House, which is the official name for this Ground Zero Mosque and Islamic Center, will stand as a symbol of victory over the Great Satan, the United States. To radical Muslims world wide, having this mosque, built on the site of the worst attack on American soil, is the ultimate symbol of conquest.

It’s been nine years since those brutal attacks on our nation. It’s a real disgrace that we don’t already have a new World Trade Center: bigger, shinier, and defiant, constructed and filled with busy workers at Ground Zero. The fact that there isn’t, speaks volumes about the poor leadership in New York, but the fact that this same “leadership” is willing to allow this insult to all Americans to move forward is simply appalling and unacceptable.

God Bless Pamela Geller for what she is doing, and God Bless Sarah Palin for stepping up as well. There are some things that are so outrageous one simply must stand up and be counted.

One another note, Pamela has a great new book out, The Post American Presidency, a must read which is available from Amazon.com. Pick up your copy today!

Pamela Geller Discusses 9/11 Mosque with Mike Huckabee…. Oh, And Steal This Flyer!

This past weekend Pamela Geller appeared on The Mike Huckabee Show where she talked about a major insult to the victims and families effected by the Muslim terrorists who attacked New York City on September 11, 2001. It seems radical Muslims are looking to build a Mosque within the shadow of Ground Zero, the site of the World Trade Center attacks.

Not only is this an insult to those murdered by Islamic terrorists, and their families, but it is an insult to New Yorkers, and Americans as a whole.

Pamela, a popular conservative author and journalist, is one of America’s leading voices against radical Islam. Her website, Atlas Shrugs, is a must read….daily. She reports on the atrocities and horrors of radical Islam like no one else. If you want the unvarnished truth, check out Atlas Shrugs here.

She has also taken on the project: Stop Islamization Of America and has a Facebook page dedicated to this that you can visit here. You can also follow her on Twitter here.

Pamela has a huge rally coming up in New York on June 6, at Ground Zero. She has asked her readers to “Steal this flyer” below. We ask our readers to do the same. Steal this flyer and send it everywhere! Write, make phone calls, send tweets, whatever, just help stop this insult to the memory of all of those who were slaughtered on 9/11 by Muslim terrorists.
