New York City Parents On Collision Course Again With Dept. Of Education Over Khalil Gibran International Academy Move

By Sara Springer, special to PipeLineNews.org

February 29, 2008 - Brooklyn, NY - PipeLineNews.org - This week the NYC Department of Education informed the Khalil Gibran International Academy's PTA that the school would be relocated for the September 2008 school year. Yet with all the planning, the intended target for KGIA, PS 287 in Fort Green doesn't have the required space and the proposed move is running into a firestorm of resistance from parents who feel their school is an inappropriate choice for the controversial Arabic school which has been called a madrassah.

In an effort to quell the growing dissent, on the evening of February 27, Garth Harries, DOE Officer of Portfolio Development, came to PS 287 where he faced an angry gathering of parents, outraged that their school had been chosen with little consultation.

As has been the case since the inception of KGIA, the DOE has been a model of non-transparency. That stonewalling continues, for example, on February 4, the PTA requested a copy of KGIA's curriculum, yet nearly a month later nothing has been forwarded.

A parent from the school told this reporter that she attempted to visit KGIA today, stating she "was poorly received," and had not been allowed to enter. At the meeting she rose, chiding Harries, "The school is so secretive, how can you ask us to have a school here if we don't know what's going on?"

Haj Amin Al-Husseini - Nazi Collaborator And Model For Today's Islamists

By Emerson Vermaat

February 27, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Haj Amin Al-Husseini (1895-1974), Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, is a man of the past, at the same time he is a man of the present. Not only was he one of the best Arab friends the Nazis ever had, he also worked for them and was handsomely paid by them in the crucial war years between 1941 and 1945 when he lived in a villa in Berlin. Today, he is a model for many radical Muslims who share his views on the Jews, Sharia law and the West. He was the father of Palestinian nationalism. Why did he feel so deeply attracted to Nazi ideology? Why did the Nazis see the Grand Mufti as their close friend and ally?

It was in 1899 that Houston Stewart Chamberlain, a British born germanofile, published his book "Die Grundlagen des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts" ("The Foundations of the nineteenth century"). This book would make a huge impact on nationalistic and anti-Semitic Germans and later laid the foundations for Nazi ideology. Chamberlain acquired German citizenship in 1916, during the First World War, that is. He later joined the Nazi Party, was close to Goebbels and Hitler, but died in 1927, six years before the Nazis would come to power.

Chamberlain was fascinated by the powerful will of the Arabs and Islam ("der Mohammedanismus"), and by the way Muslims are facing death.[1

UK's Top Jihadist Convicted In London Trial

By William Mayer and Beila Rabinowitz

February 26, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Ending a four-year investigation, Mohammed Hamid, the UK's self styled "Osama bin-London," was convicted today on three counts of providing terror training and three counts of soliciting murder in Woolwich Crown Court.

Seven members of Hamid's cell have also been convicted in various proceedings over the last year.

Of the successful prosecution, Peter Clarke of the Metropolitan Police stated, "If you want to judge how serious Hamid, Ahmet and the others were, you just have to look at the group...The group included the people responsible for the attacks in London on 21 July 2005. You have to look at the fact that they celebrated the deaths that occurred on 7 July..in fact what they were doing accelerated and intensified to try to mount attacks both here and overseas...You can only possibly conclude that these were serious determined terrorists."

Researchers have identified Hamid as having been one of the most important terror recruiters operating in the UK, seeking out the disaffected and impressionable so they could be folded into the global jihad. Training sessions were held during camping trips organized around the English countryside by Hamid who also conducted what amounted to terror seminars held at his residence.

Hamid's terror associations were many and his network was extensive. For example, four of the men involved in the abortive July 21, 2005 attempted London bombing knew and were trained by him. The case is of additional importance because it demonstrated that there has been a substantial amount of radicalization among the UK's Muslim population and that the potential for home-grown terrorism is significant.

Congressman Ron Klein Says Keith Ellison Stays On "Anti-Semitism" Task Force

February 26, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Despite having met with researchers from the civil rights activist group, American's Against Hate [AAH], who presented compelling evidence that Minnesota Democrat Congressman Keith Ellison's record and associations should disqualify him from membership on the House of Representative's Anti-Semitism Task Force, the Task Force's chair Congressman Ron Klein [D-FLA] has decided that he will continue in that capacity. On February 19, Mira Kogen, Klein's Legislative Director, informed AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman of that fact

During the previous week, an AAH delegation met with Mr. Klein and presented documentation proving that there had been direct contact between Ellison and radical Muslim organizations, including the Muslim American Society [MAS] and the Council on American-Islamic Relations [CAIR].

According to Mr. Kaufman, "Both MAS and CAIR had recently been named by the U.S. government as being part of the Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR had been linked by the FBI to Hamas."

Obama, Dhimmi or Co-Religionist?

February 25, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Barak Hussein Obama's campaign is reacting with understandable fury to the widespread distribution of a damaging image. Obama is blaming his rival, Hilary Clinton with circulating a revealing photograph taken of him during his 2006 trip to Africa. The picture features the Senator appearing servile and dressed in Somali Muslim garb.

The Drudge report has pushed the story after the image had allegedly been the subject of numerous emails between Clinton staffers. Placed against the backdrop of Mrs. Clinton's floundering run for president, this controversy seems to reflect a nothing-to-lose sense of desperation given that the move could so easily backfire.

Members of team Clinton are responding to Obama's charge of dirty tricks, disingenuously saying that the fault lies in his campaign which they say is trying to shift attention away from Mrs. Clinton's foreign policy speech which was given today.

David Plouffe, Obama's campaign director, appeared livid over what he sees as gutter politics, calling it "fear mongering" and stating, "On the very day that Senator Clinton is giving a speech about restoring respect for America in the world, her campaign team has engaged in the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we've seen from either party in this election. This is part of a disturbing pattern that led her county chairs to resign in Iowa, her campaign chairman to resign in New Hampshire, and it's exactly the kind of divisive politics that turns

Clinton's campaign director, Maggie Williams, responded to the Obama campaigns charges stating, "If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed...This is nothing more than an obvious and transparent attempt to distract from the serious issues confronting our country today and to attempt to create the very divisions they claim to decry. We will not be distracted."

The Portable Jihad - Radical Imam Ibrahim Dremali Moves To Texas

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

February 25, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a 2005 piece by these authors Deconstructing Iman Ibrahim Dremali we chronicled the radical career of imam Ibrahim Dremali:

"Born in Gaza when it was still controlled by Egypt?Dremali later moved to Egypt where he was educated in Islamic religious theology and geology at Al Azhar University?While there Dremali started his religious training. Dr. Ibrahim Dremali - Sheikh Ibrahim - has a degree in Shariah from Al-Azhar University...the alma mater of Bin Laden's mentor Abdullah Azzam as well as being a center of Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic Jihad activities?Dremali fled to the US [and] In 1998 Dremali co-founded the Islamic Center of Boca Raton, together with FAU professors Bassem Al Halabi and Khalid Hamza, and become its imam. It didn't take Dremali long to become a political activist in the United States. He participated in a series of pro-Palestinian demonstrations that were held across from the Israeli Embassy in Miami in 2000. At these events vitriolic speeches were made while Israeli flags were burned. In October at one of these events - as demonstrators shouted "Haya al Jihad" [Long live Jihad] and "With jihad we'll claim our land, Zionist blood will wet the sand" - Dremali shouted to the crowd, "...[don't] be sad for those who were martyred and to not be afraid to die for what they believe in."
We were not the only authors to take note of imam Dremali. In his 2006 piece ?The Visiting Jihadist" Joe Kaufman wrote, "Muslim extremist Ibrahim Dremali has had an eventful life He grew up in terrorist-saturated Gaza, where many of his family still live...Ibrahim Dremali was educated at Al-Azhar University in Cairo, where the school?s Grand imam, Muhammad Sayyed Tantawi, has issued Fatwas in favor of violent Jihad against America and in support of suicide bombings. It is at Al-Azhar that Dremali was said to have been indoctrinated into a militant organization?" [source, http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=CE9F928F-A85C-4BC1-8479-1E89D72A1DA5].

Dremali fled the Islamic Center of Boca Raton, possibly in anticipation of the arrest of one of his congregants, Rafiq Sabir, a now-convicted Al Qaeda operative, and set up shop in Des Moines Iowa where he became the imam of the Islamic Center of Des Moines and founded an Islamic school called New Horizons.

U.S. Recognition Of An Al-Qaeda Infiltrated Kosovo Is Indefensible

February, 19, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As we predicted in a 2005 piece, 10 Years And Counting - Still No Exit Plan From Clinton Created, European Al-Qaeda Base the radical Muslim game plan in the former Yugoslavia, which was evident from the mid 1990s has now been realized by what is perhaps George Bush's most serious foreign policy error, the recognition of an illegal and radical Muslim state in East Central Europe - Kosovo.

As has been the case in most of America's blunders regarding radical Islam, the United States embarked upon this disastrous path under the Clinton administration:

"Ignored by the leftist participants in rage-filled street demonstrations is the fact that the Clinton team's Balkan policies were viewed by establishment politicians as so outside the normal confines of American diplomacy that the actions of the US Ambassador to Croatia Peter Galbraith and then NSC Director Anthony Lake were referred to the Justice Department by the House of Representative for possible criminal action.

"...The Iranian presence and influence [in Bosnia] jumped radically in the months following the [Clinton] green light. Iranian elements infiltrated the Bosnian government and established close ties with the current leadership in Bosnia and the next generation of leaders. Iranian Revolutionary Guards accompanied Iranian weapons into Bosnia and soon were integrated in the Bosnian military structure from top to bottom as well as operating in independent units throughout Bosnia. The Iranian intelligence service [VEVAK] ran wild through the area developing intelligence networks, setting up terrorist support systems, recruiting terrorist 'sleeper' agents and agents of influence, and insinuating itself with the Bosnian political leadership to a remarkable degree. The Iranians effectively annexed large portions of the Bosnian security apparatus [known as the Agency for Information and Documentation (AID)] to act as their intelligence and terrorist surrogates. This extended to the point of jointly planning terrorist activities. The Iranian embassy became the largest in Bosnia and its officers were given unparalleled privileges and access at every level of the Bosnian government." - Final Report, House Select Subcommittee to Investigate the United States Role in Iranian Arms Transfers to Croatia and Bosnia, page 201 [source, http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=bosniaislam.htm]

Hizb ut-Tahrir - A Dangerous Terrorist Organization - On The Rise In Europe

By Emerson Vermaat

February 19, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Few people may have heard about "Hizb ut-Tahrir" (HuT) or "Party of Liberation." Although it has its roots in the Middle East, Hizb ut-Tahrir is one the fastest growing Islamist movements in Europe. Those who want to join Hizb ut-Tahrir have to swear an oath of allegiance to "the party." So far, very few dared to leave.

One of those who did leave Hizb ut-Tahrir is Ed Husain, a British Muslim. Last year, Husain wrote an alarming book about these well organized fanatics showing how they penetrate university campuses and universities all over Britain. Their real goal, eventually, is to take over the government. They know how to deny, lie and deflect, Husain writes. Always telling the outside world they espouse a policy of non-violence, in reality, though, they are not peaceful at all. Omar Bakri Mohammed, the founder of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Britain, was (and still is) an open admirer of Osama bin Laden. (He told me so personally when I interviewed him for Dutch television in 2002.) Hizb ut-Tahrir is linked to the "Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan" (IMU) which is closely affiliated with Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

Both Al-Qaeda and Hizb ut-Tahrir want to establish a Caliphate, Allah's kingdom on earth. (A kind of utopia not so different from the Marxist or Communist utopia of the kingdom so brilliantly described by Geroge Orwell in his "Animal Farm," a kingdom indeed where all people are equal, but some people "are more equal than others.") A Muslim state ruled by Islamic law or "sharia." Today's Muslim leaders and kings are apostates, they must be deposed. In addition, Hizb ut-Tahrir and Osama bin Ladan share their militant anti-Semitism: Jews must be killed, wherever you find them.

Al-Qaeda Linked Mosque Breaks Ground In Boca Raton

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

February 17, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Islamic Center of Boca Raton [ICBR] broke ground on an ambitious Islamic center on February 16. The planned 30,000 square foot structure was designed to vaguely replicate the Prophet's Mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia.

The ICBR has long been the subject of counter-terror researchers, including Joe Kaufman who detailed in a 2003 article, "Boca Raton City of Terror" the activities of numerous radical Muslims in the community, including those of then ICBR imam Ibrahim Dremali:

"In October of 2000, Dremali spoke at a rally where Israeli flags were burned and slogans, such as "With jihad we'll claim our land, Zionist blood will wet the sand," were shouted. Dremali told the crowd "not to be sad for those who were martyred and to not be afraid to die for what they believe in," [source, http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID={FB47D145-E8C5-41AD-ACE8-23F219F6F1A5}].

In 2005 one of ICBR's congregants, a convert to Islam and emergency room doctor named Rafiq Sabir was arrested for swearing allegiance to al-Qaeda and planning to open a jihad training camp in addition to going abroad to treat mujahideen. Sabir was sentenced to 25 years for his terrorist activities in November 2007 [see, "Mastermind in Terror Plot, Rafiq Sabir, Get's 25 Year Sentence," http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=sabir11.29.07.htm]

Florida Attorney General McCollum's Submission To CAIR and MPAC

February 15, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In what has become a war of the spinners, Florida Attorney General McCollum, the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] and the Muslim Public Affairs Council [MPAC] are all trying to cast a meeting held on February 12, between the AG and the two groups in the best light.

That meeting took place as a result of McCollum having organized a screening of the film "Obsession" which is viewed by CAIR, MPAC and other Islamist organizations as being defamatory because it tells the truth about radical Islam, including its ties to fascism.

For its part, CAIR, the recently named unindicted co-conspirator in the U.S. government's largest anti-terror prosecution, characterized the meeting in part as:

"McCollum also agreed to offer educational programs on Islam and Muslims to his staff and to help build better relations between the Muslim community and law enforcement agencies," [source, http://www.cair.com/ArticleDetails.aspx?ArticleID=24214&&name=n&&currPage=1&&Active=1].

However in a letter to America Congress for Truth's Jerry Gordon a spokesman for Mr. McCollum seemed to be saying that there would be no "educational programs on Islam" being forced on employees of the AG's office:

"The meeting earlier this week with MPAC and CAIR was a good dialogue and we believe it was productive, but as multiple media outlets have reported, the Attorney General will not be "dissociating" himself from this movie and still believes it has educational value. I've not seen any particular statement from MPAC on the meeting aside from what has been reported in the media, but the one statement they've made in the press which is not accurate relates to the opportunity to educate our staff. This will not be possible due to First Amendment issues," [source, http://blog.americancongressfortruth.com:80/2008/02/14/florida-ag-mccollum-calls-mpaccair-statements-about-meeting-inaccurate].

CAIR Promoting Shari'a Through Year-Long Da'wa Course

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

February 14, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] has long operated under the guise of "civil rights" group while working to bring about the Islamization of North America. Case in point, the group, recently named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the nation's largest terror prosecution, announced it will be conducting a year-long seminar in shari'a. Registration ends this month and the first class is scheduled for March, 1.

The course is designed to appeal to Muslim leaders and train them in methods thought beneficial to the spreading of Islam:

"Imams of Islamic Centers and those who are working in the field of Islamic da'wah. The educational approach will add new aspects to their knowledge...Teachers/instructors, intellectual leaders, and people of influence who are helping to explain the message of Islam."

This intensive training program is to be held at the Foundation for Islamic Education, a Saudi funded, Wahhabist organization which these writers have previously covered [see, Conestoga High School Da'wa Field Trip - Visit Planned To Saudi Dominated, Terror Tied Foundation for Islamic Education and Saudi Wahhabists Promoting Islamic Extremism Through Villanova Jihad Camps] and, "is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the Principles of the Sciences of Islamic Law (usu al ulum ash Shari'a), [source, CAIR's Academic Program on Islamic Juristic Sciences

Marxist Effort To Indoctrinate Bay Area Youth Going Unchallenged

Public schools involved in promotion of revolutionary agenda

February 13, 2008 - Berkeley, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Having spent about 4 hours yesterday on assignment in Berkeley, CA covering the confrontation between pro-troop activists and the usual suspects it was impossible to avoid noting the high percentage of young people apparently in the tow of the left.

Berkeley being what it has always been [since the mid-1960s and Mario Savio] one would expect its youth to be involved in the city's leftward tilting politics. Mere involvement however was not what one saw during the day-long demonstrations; what was observed however is that the young were apparently serving a key role - an army of foot soldiers for Marxist revolutionary groups - which have created a semi-underground network which provides support and direction to these kids.

It was from within this mini-army - all similarly adorned in black "The World Can't Wait" tee-shirts and orange bandanas worn in a manner similar to the Palestinian jihadists' al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigade kaffiyehs - that two of the day's three arrests took place. This is also the group which aggressively moved on the Berkeley Police Department, demanding the immediate release of the detainees until their effort was [gently] broken up by the Tac-Squad.

In talking to some of these kids we became aware of a group called the Bay Area Revolution Club which is a student outreach program coordinated through the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

Anti-Hate Organization Demands Removal Of Keith Ellison From Congressional Task Force

February 13, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On Tuesday, a delegation from Americans Against Hate [AAH] met with Congressman Ron Klein [D-Fla] asking for the removal of Keith Ellison [D-Minn] from the newly created Congressional Task Force on Anti-Semitism.

Klein co-chairs the Task Force along with Mike Pence [R-IN]

During the meeting representatives from AAH presented the Congressman with a series of documents detailing Ellison ties to radical Muslim organizations including the Muslim American Society [MAS] and the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR].

Both CAIR and MAS were recently named by government prosecutors as being part of the Muslim Brotherhood, the radical Egyptian based terrorist group.

One of the exhibits presented to Mr. Klein showed violently anti-Jewish, anti-Christian and pro-Hamas statements from the website of the Minnesota chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS-Minnesota). These statements were up on the site when Congressman Ellison spoke in front of the group in May of 2007, and they were up on the site this month when he spoke at a memorial for MAS-Minnesota's President who was killed in an auto accident in Saudi Arabia on January 26th.

Berkeley Code Pink Out-Gunned By Move America Forward Pro-Troop Supporters

February 12, 2008 - Berkeley, CA - PipeLinenews.org - As the nine member Berkeley City Council prepared to decide the fate of the city's Marine Corp Recruiting Center, Move America Forward - the nation's largest grassroots pro-troop organization - took to the streets, confronting a rag-tag group of counter culture lefties, including members of Code Pink, a group much in favor with California Democrat legislators.

Starting at 5am conservatives streamed into the notoriously radical city of 100,000, carrying the dual themed but unified message of support for both our military as well as the war against Islamic terror.

As we wrote during the last confrontation between these clashing ideologies, "Sick and tired of Code Pink's constant harassment of the Marine recruiting center on Berkeley's Shattuck Avenue, today Move America Forward landed on the beaches and simply overwhelmed the Pink Panty Waists. The "Progressives" aka Commies, are not only unaccustomed to being challenged on their home turf, they come unglued when confronted by superior numbers. We felt, and tremendously enjoyed their pain."

The basis of today's exercise in free speech is the decision by the city council to revisit its earlier [January 29] resolution excoriating [6-3 vote] the Marine recruiting center calling it an "uninvited and unwelcome intruders."

That vote has since become the rallying cry among conservatives who are tired of policy being set by tiny communities of aging hippies, goofy Marxists and blame America firsters. The vote also has come to the attention of legislators at the state and national level who have introduced measures to deny Berkeley government funding if it persists in its war of attrition against the Marines.

Six GTMO Terrorists Face Death Penalty In Military Tribunal Proceedings

February 11, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Six al-Qaeda terrorists currently being detained at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility are nearing an appointment with justice via military tribunals expected to begin sometime this Summer.

The six named in the indictment are Khalid Sheikh Mohammed - reputed to the 911 mastermind who was broken by water boarding, Walid Muhammad Salih, Mubarak Bin 'Attash, Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi and Mohamed al Kahtani.

Government prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in all six cases.

Detailed in a presentation listing169 specific acts, the indictment alleges that those charged met with Usama bin-Laden in the period of time after al-Qaeda declared war on the United States in 1996 to devise the plan that eventually resulted in the September 11 attacks and the death of 2,973 civilians.

The indictment charges the named six along with others, "known and unknown," in having willfully joined in:

"...an enterprise of persons with the intent to further the unlawful purpose of the enterprise; said agreement and enterprise sharing a common criminal purpose known to the six accused to commit the following offenses triable by military commission: attacking civilians, attacking civilian objects, intentionally causing serious bodily injury, murder in violation of the law of war, destruction of property in violation of the law of war, and terrorism."

Attack On Bombay Stock Exchange Broken Up By Indian Police

February 11, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Six men - all suspected members of the East Asian Islamic terrorist group, Lashkar e-Toiba - were arrested on Sunday in India's Uttar Pradesh province. They are being charged with planning to launch a terror attack on Bombay's Stock Exchange which is located in Mumbai.

During the sweep, security personnel confiscated AK47 battle rifles, ammunition and explosive devices including hand grenades.

It is believed that the six were also responsible for carrying out a 2007 attack against India's Central Reserve Police Force headquarters which killed 8.

About the arrests, government spokesman Vikram Singh said, ''All except one were trained in Pakistan. This includes 21 days of training in Muzzafarabad, One month's intelligence training and training in explosives.''

The men were all carrying Pakistani passports.

Move America Forward Brings Pro-Troop Energy To Berkeley Marine Recruiting Controversy

By Tom Fredriksen

February 11, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Catherine Moy, Executive Director of Move America Forward, - America's largest grassroots pro-troop organization, stated today in an interview with Old Glory Radio that nationwide support is massing for a pro-troop rally to be held outside the Berkeley, CA City Council chambers on Feb 12.

The rally was organized by Ms. Moy's organization as a counterpoint to the recent effort by Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates and the City Council to remove the Marine Corp Recruiting station from the city.

In addition to the gathering of Marine supporters, a counter demonstration by the radical anti-war group Code Pink is expected.

Move America Forward and their supporters plan to arrive as early as 5:00am with events and speakers scheduled throughout the day. Popular conservative San Francisco talk show [KSFO 560 AM] host Melanie Morgan will be speaking.

The scheduled City Council meeting at 7:00pm is expected to be a contentious event as both supporters of the Marines, and members of the notoriously left-leaning Code Pink, will be scrambling for limited seating and the ability to address the council on this matter.


Looking For Moderate Muslims In All The Wrong Places - Joshua Muravchik's Lonely Quest

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

February 8, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In an article entitled In Search of Moderate Muslims [Commentary, February 2008] Joshua Maravchik and Charles P. Szrom cite Kamran Bokhari as an example of moderation, they state, "Kamran Bokhari is a one-time adherent of Islamism who broke with its ideology and is now a student of radical Islam."

The authors err in accepting Bokhari's assertions that he has retreated from that which motivated him when he served as the North American spokesman for Al-Muhajiroun, the extremist Muslim organization which originated in Saudi Arabia.

Key to evaluating Bokhari's claimed shift in allegiance lies in understanding the full dimensions of Islamism, which has two essential components; violent jihadism - terrorism based upon an interpretation of Islam - and legal Islamism, or stealth jihad - using the open nature of liberal democracies to destroy them from the inside - as put forth in the Muslim Brotherhood's 1991 plan in which they referred to a "civilizational, jihadist process...[a] grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within."

Even a cursory review of Kamran Bokhari's recent writings shows that he supports Islamism.

In a 2005 article published by the Lincoln Heritage Institute [see, http://www.lincolnheritage.org/articles/wklymag/the_push_for_democracy.html] Bokhari states, "In other words, it is Islamist - not secular - forces that not only can stem the tide of the al Qaeda phenomenon but act as a buffer against a possible jihadist resurgence."

Dhimmi Archbishop Of Canterbury Bows To Sharia

February 7, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Claiming that changing British perceptions regarding sharia was important, today the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, advocated the acceptance of Islamic law, at one point in his speech calling it "unavoidable."

"It seems unavoidable and, as a matter of fact, certain conditions of Sharia are already recognised in our society and under our law, so it is not as if we are bringing in an alien and rival system."

Critics of Williams were quick to condemn his comments, with Alistair McBay speaking for Britain's National Secular Society:

"In a plural society, all citizens are equal under the law and the Archbishop's comments directly undermines this?We have segregated schools, segregated scout groups and even segregated toilets for Muslims, and now the Archbishop says we should have different laws, it's madness. On the one hand religious groups say they want to integrate, but actually they want to segregate."

The controversial Dr. Williams was chosen to lead the Anglican church in 2002 by Tony Blair and has since then gone out of his way to advance a leftist agenda including support for lesbians and gays in the clergy and extreme criticism of American/British foreign policy.

The Pathway To The Final Solution

Bush Housing Secretary Jackson In Bed With Islamist Philly Developer Kenny Gamble

February 4, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As noted here in a January 1 piece - Muhammad and Mrs. Jones - Kenny Gamble's Philadelphia Muslim Enclave - music impresario Kenny Gamble is, "the architect of a planned stealth Islamist enclave in Philadelphia where he is better known in Muslim circles as Brother Luqman Abdul Haqq. Gamble has admitted that he intends to bring about the Muslim community in South Philadelphia through his "Universal Companies" and proclaims that his state and federally subsidized funded building endeavors are part of an Islamist blueprint, 'We are not down here just for Universal-we are down here for Islam.'"

Another aspect of this matter, revealed today by Washington Post writer Carol Leonnig [source, HUD Official Accused of Retaliation, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/03/AR2008020303107.html?hpid=topnews], is that Bush HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson has been accused of applying unwarranted pressure on Philadelphia city officials in an effort to aid Gamble. In that piece, Johnson is referred to as a "business friend," of Gamble's

The controversy centers on a request allegedly made to the Philadelphia Housing Authority by the HUD Secretary demanding that it transfer at less than market value, a parcel of land worth $2 million to Gamble.

Jackson is alleged to also have applied pressure to Philly's mayor in 2006 and the housing authority's director Carl Greene is contending in court papers that because the city refused the Secretary's request that it is being retaliated against, removing its authority to spend certain categories of federal funding.

Was Hillary Clinton Advisor Strobe Talbott Manipulated By Russian Intelligence?

February 1, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - If we are to believe the Hillary Clinton campaign line, the main attribute which qualifies her above all others is that, "She is ready to lead on day one."

She derives this alleged standing from what can only be called political osmosis, having been the wife of Bill Clinton, serving as his "co-president." This echoes a theme which Bill stated often during the 1992 presidential campaign, suggesting that a vote for him was a bargain because the lucky voter would get "two for the price of one," thus providing a first hint, both into the role that Hillary would play during his administration as well as her own remarkable appetite for power and desire to become president in her own right.

The problem with the thesis "ready to lead" has always been that Mrs. Clinton is a creature of her husband's. Without Bill to grease the pathway it is unlikely that she would have ever been successful in politics or even have made it to Arkansas' sleazy Rose Law firm, let alone now be the odds on favorite for the Democrat nomination.

Like much about the Clintons, Hillary being ready to lead is a myth.

If however we accept that proposition for the sake of argument, then Hillary must be evaluated on the basis of how her co-presidency faired.

Hundreds of books and probably tens of thousands of articles have been written dealing with various aspects of the Clinton presidency. Many of these center on the myriad of scandals that befell these two during those 8 years, so there is no reason to revisit that at this juncture.

However according to a just published book "Comrade J" another calamity is stalking the Clinton legacy, one which gives unique insight into how the "co-presidents" conducted American foreign policy throughout the 1990's as well as the fitness of Mrs. Clinton to serve.


Stop John McCain From Hijacking The Republican Party

Wrong Decision By Dutch Appeals Court In Hofstad Group Terror Case

By Emerson Vermaat, special to PipeLineNews.org

January 31, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Dutch Appeals Court's decision on Wednesday January 23, 2008, that the so-called "Hofstad Group" is not a terrorist organization, is wrong. The Appeals Court from The Hague overruled a decision taken by the lower Rotterdam Court in 2006 which said that the Hofstad Group was indeed a terrorist organization whose members were inciting to hatred.

The Hofstad Group consisted of a group Dutch-Moroccans and one native Dutch who frequently met in the small two-room Amsterdam house of Mohammed Bouyeri, another Dutch Moroccan who was convicted to life after he killed Dutch columnist and filmmaker Theo van Gogh. On March 30, 2006, the Rotterdam Court convicted 8 members of the Hofstad Group, namely Jason Theodore James Walters, Ismail Akhnikh, Ahmed Hamdi (Bouyeri's house mate), Mohammed Fahmi Boughaba, Nouriddin El Fatmi, Mohammed El Morabit, Zine Labidine Aouraghe and Youssef Ettoumi. All of them appealed except Zine Labidine Aouraghe.

After Theo van Gogh was killed on November 2, 2004, Dutch police arrested most members of the Hofstad Group. In several reports the Dutch Intelligence and Security Service AIVD described the group as "a jihadist network around the charismatic preacher Redouan (or Bassem) Al-Issa," a failed asylum-seeker from Syria. Two members of the group, Jason Walters and Ismail Akhnikh, had visited terrorist training camps in Pakistan in the summer of 2003, the AIVD reported in October 2003. Another key member of the group, Samir Azzouz, was already in pre-trial detention since June 2004. There were indications that he was involved in an armed robbery on a branch of the Edah-supermarket in Rotterdam, and during a thorough house search police discovered a lot of highly interesting material ? there were strong suspicions Azzouz was planning a terrorist attack.

Azzouz was a close friend of Jason Walters' and Ismail Akhnikh's, all of whom are believed to be hard core members of the group. (In its reports the AIVD invariably speaks of a "network" or "group"; for legal reasons prosecutors prefer the term "terrorist organization" ? because the term "organization" is used in article 140a of the Dutch penal code; the Council Frame Work Decision of June 13, 2002, on combating terrorism refers to "a terrorist group.")

Khalil Gibran International Academy Revealed As A Sham

Arabic School "Celebration" Turns Into Resentment Filled Wake

By Sara Springer

January 29, 2008 - Brooklyn, NY - PipeLineNews.org - "Speaking Justice, Speaking Truth," an event held tonight at the Park Slope Methodist Church which was billed as a "Performance in Support of The Khalil Gibran International Academy," seemed more like a wake than a celebration to many observers present.

That feeling was underlined by the evening's speakers, those most intimately involved with the controversial Arab language school, its instructors, some of whom choked back tears while they addressed a crowd of approximately 200.

Instead of touting the school's success, nearly everyone who addressed the assembly talked about the institution's abandonment and loss of support by the DOE, New Visions, and Brooklyn's Arab American Family Support Center [AAFSC].

To those who spoke tonight, the school is a hollow shell of what New York DOE Chancellor Joel Klein had promised, and what Department spokesmen continue to portray in public.

Security problems abound, with one teacher confiding to a member of the KGIA design team that he had been assaulted today but was forced to take the matter to the police because school security did not respond. He further stated that for his efforts he had been reprimanded by school leadership.

John McCain, Unfit To Serve As Commander In Chief

By Ted Sampley, special to PipeLineNews.org

January 29, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - John Sidney McCain III entered the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland in 1954. Young McCain wanted to become an admiral. He planned to achieve the distinction of being the "first son and grandson of four star admirals" . But that was not to be. McCain III possessed none of the innate character and discipline traits that helped mold his father and grandfather into great military leaders.

Family Connections and Special Privileges:

His father, John S. "Junior" McCain, and grandfather, John S. McCain, Sr., were famous four-star Admirals in the U.S. Navy. His father commanded U.S. forces in Europe before becoming commander of American forces fighting in Vietnam. His grandfather commanded naval aviation at the Battle of Okinawa in 1945. Both men became highly influential in U.S. Navy operations.

At the Academy, aside being known as a "rowdy, raunchy, underachiever" who resented authority, Cadet McCain became infamous as a leader among his fellow midshipmen for organizing "off-Yard activities" and hard drinking parties. Robert Timberg wrote in his book , The Nightingale's Song, that "being on liberty with John McCain was like being in a train wreck."

McCain's grades were "marginal." He drew so many demerits for breaking curfew and other discipline issues that he graduated fifth from the bottom of the class of 1958. Despite his low "class standing," and no doubt because of the influence of his family of famous Admirals, McCain was leap-frogged ahead of more qualified applicants and granted a coveted slot to be trained as a navy pilot.

Book Review - Women: Theory and Practice

Author - Bernard Paul Chapin
2007, iUniverse, New York - $19.95 US, 231 pg.

As reviewed by William A. Mayer

January 28, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - "Women" is Bernard Chapin's third work [see our review of his excellent second work Book Review - "Escape From Gangsta Island - A School's Progressive Decline." The book has been long-awaited by the many fans of Chapin's numerous previous columns detailing his views on sexual politics.

Among other things, Chapin is a culture warrior whose observations carry a sense of precision often lacking in other authors who write within that genre. That is perhaps because of his training as a psychologist, but it might just be that he is extraordinarily acute and perceptive.

His current work, as the title suggests is about how the women's revolution especially the radical feminist movement, which has and continues to poison the relationship between men and women. He does this on two levels, one theoretical, in which the intellectual underpinnings of what feminism has come to represent are dissected and then skewered, and the second experiential, illustrating how women constructed along these lines function within a culture that has become outwardly at least, female-centric.

The author carefully demonstrates that the changes that women have undergone, mirror similar changes in society in general, tracing both back to the generational tumult of the 1960s.

Starting with the chapter, "The Fairer Sex" Chapin describes the process whereby women have been transformed into a mythical construct not supportable by either reason or biology, calling it "genitalia mongering," a marketing program which has resulted in non-authentic gender roles and consequently a prodigious amount of misery for both men and women.

The Real John McCain And The War

January 28, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Much has been said, most notably and often by Senator McCain himself, about how he is the one almost singularly responsible for the, now year old Iraqi "troop surge."

How McCain's imprecise and laborious mouthing of a general need for "more troops" should be the cause of the candidate's gloating, chest beating and taking credit now after the fact, trumping the actual plan now being employed in Iraq with much success - one put forth NOT by Mr. McCain but, working behind the scene with the adminstration, General Jack Keane [Ret] and American Enterprise Institute [AEI] fellow Frederick W. Kagan - is mystifying [see our December 14, 2006 article Choosing Victory].

While McCain's fable has been given wide play now among supporters of his presidential bid as well as his longstanding allies in the liberal media, the truth is far different.

McCain's support for increased deployment of troops to the Iraq theatre was really not that in its purest sense, rather it was - like most of his policy positions - a ruse, a component of a self-serving strategy which allowed him pursue a proxy war against President Bush's conduct of the Iraq conflict, in this case by isolating and then gutting his Defense Secretary, Rumsfeld. McCain's actions in the matter are a continuation of his long record of opposition to the president on nearly every substantial issue of importance to conservatives, from opposing tax cuts, to questionable campaign finance legislation, to giving U.S. Constitutional rights to terrorists. His finger-in-the-eye approach to Mr. Bush also extended to handcuffing his administration on judicial appointments via his support of the gang of 14's opposition to the "nuclear option" on filibusters.

Pro-Taliban Pakistani Imran Khan Meeting With Senate Democrats

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

January 25, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLinenews.org - Imran Khan the leader of Pakistan's Islamist Tehrik-e-Insaaf party [PTI], has been welcomed this week with open arms by the U.S. Senate's Democrat leadership, with whom he has held extensive meetings.

Thus far Khan, who infamously fanned the flames internationally promoting the spurious "Quran flushing" incident originally - erroneously reported by Michael Isikoff, setting off riots and bloodshed in the Muslim world - has been greeted by Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid [D-Nevada] as well as Joseph Biden [D-Delaware]. Biden's role as chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, places him in a key position in the determination of future aid to Pakistan.

Khan, a former professional cricket player, was jailed by president Musharaff in the tumult leading up to the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. He as brought his campaign of undercutting the Pakistani leader to America where he is apparently receiving prominent Democrat support.

Imran Khan's instigation of the riots caused by the Quran flushing rumor seems to have earned him "street cred" with the Taliban supporting Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal [MMA] party, with whose leader, Qazi Hussain, Khan has partnered in hopes of further destabilizing the Musharaff administration.

Hofstadgroep Convictions Flawed By Legal Technicalities

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

January 25, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a major blow to Holland's efforts to suppress it's increasing homegrown Islamic jihad, a Dutch court has ruled that the Hofstadgroep, responsible for the conspiracy which resulted in the 2004 assassination of film maker Theo van Gogh, is a "criminal terrorist organization" rather than the previously agreed upon designation as a "terrorist organization."

The distinction is important in Dutch law because nine members of the group possibly received lesser sentences than might have been the case had the original charges been sustained. The high court ruled that there was insufficient proof of the group working together for the purpose of "spreading hate, chaos and threats."

Altogether, nine convicted Hofstadgroep members received varying sentences up to 15 years, however five of those charged were acquitted.

Dutch Muslim Councilwoman Who Told Constituent To "Drop Dead" On Verge Of Being Forced Out

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

January 25, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a story reported here earlier [see, Muslim Dutch Labor Party Politician Tells Citizen, "Drop Dead, Convert To Islam"] the case of Moroccan born Dutch councilwoman Bouchra Ismaili, who responded to an email query by a native born Netherlander, suggesting that he, "drop dead convert to Islam...you are the foreigners here," is close to resolution, with what is believed to be her imminent forced resignation.

The email was sent by Ismaili to Jos Parbleu, who reported the incident to Holland's Algemeen Dagblad newspaper stating that he was "shocked" by the response. Parbleu, expressing a growing sentiment among the country's native born, added that the rise of Islamic militancy as evidenced by Ismaili's threatening email was, "a sign of what a disastrous situation has hit the country."

Ismaili has defended herself saying that she wrote the comments "in a surge of anger" after hearing someone yell anti-Moroccan comments during the day.

Michael Savage Interviews PipeLineNews.org's Editor & Publisher William Mayer

January 24, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Nationally syndicated talk show host Dr. Michael Savage recently interviewed William Mayer, the Editor & Publisher of PipeLinenews.org, regarding the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR], recently named as an unidicted co-conspirator in the nations largest terror prosectution.

Savage has brought suit against the organization, charging them with among other things, copyright infringement and extortion - the latter under the organized crime statutes know collectively as the RICO laws - because of CAIR's effort to silence the vocal critic of radical Islam.

Other key allegations in Dr. Savage's lawsuit include:

"CAIR is not a civil rights organization and it never has been. CAIR was and is a political organization that advocates a specific political agenda on behalf of foreign interests.

The copyright infringement was done to raise funds for CAIR so that it could perpetuate and continue to perform its role in the RICO conspiracy set forth in Count Two and to disseminate propaganda on behalf of foreign interests that are opposed to the continued existence of the United States of America as a free nation.

CAIR was tied to terror from the day it was formed. The group was incorporated on or about 1994 by Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad. Both men were officers of a terror organization known as the 'Islamic Association of Palestine.

CAIR's parent group, IAP, was founded in or about 1982 by Musa Abu Marzook. Marzook was IAP's ideological leader and controlling director from the date of its founding until shortly after his deportation from the United States in 1997. At all time relevant, Marzook was an operative of, and/or affiliated with, the 'Harakat al-Muqawamah al-Islamiyyah,' or 'Hamas.' Hamas is an international terrorist organization.

Hysteria Over Geert Wilders' Rumored "Anti-Quran" Film Continues Unabated

By Beila Rabinowitz

January 22, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Dutch MP Geert Wilders' rumored "anti-Quran" film has set off a wave of hand-wringing and hysteria in Holland.

The announcement by the head of the Freedom Party that he planned to make a film showing that the Quran is "an inspiration for intolerance, murder and terror," has sent Dutch government and security officials scurrying to design contingency plans in the event riots break out upon the release of the film.

Sociologist Peter Vasterman, a specialist in media hype commented, "The film has taken on a mythical character. Everyone already has the idea that it will be shocking and that the images will go all over the world." [source, http://www.ad.nl/binnenland/article1979691.ece]

Theo Vught, jury chairman of Holland's highest marketing prize stated that "[Wilders] has time and time again created momentum for his story. Whether film comes out or not, everyone is talking about it."

According to the Dutch newspaper, Volkskrant a 20-page secret government memo was being circulated about the cabinet and embassies worldwide. The plan allegedly details evacuation procedures and instructions to Dutch living outside Holland to be alert for the first signs of trouble. [source, http://www.volkskrant.nl/binnenland/article496082.ece/Zelfs_evacuatie_ambassades_geregeld]

Dutch police have increased their presence in Muslim areas of Holland and have had discussions with imams and other Muslim representatives, cautioning calm.

San Francisco Walk For Life 2008 A Huge Success

January 19, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The San Francisco Bay Area pro-life community turned out in a massive way today for this, the fourth annual, "Walk For Life." Each year since its inception, this event has grown larger, more organized and more confident. Today's crowd was estimated to be in excess of 25,000, an astounding turnout especially given the venue, San Francisco, arguably the most liberal city in America , sometimes referred to as the, "Belly of the Beast" of the pro-abortion movement.

Relocated this year to an expanded area adjacent to Justin Herman Plaza, the venue overflowed with a colorful, multi-ethnic mixture of good-will, leavened with a not insignificant spirit of resolve and determination.

Faith communities up and down the West coast were represented, at what has come to be a much anticipated day of bearing public witness to the sanctity of life.

Recitation of the rosary filled the air and the refrains of "Hail Mary" and "Glory be to the Father" were everywhere.

There were few signs of counter protest today; those few who did turn out were largely self- identified, hard core leftists whose presence was so anachronistic as to be more amusing than threatening.

Totally gone from the march were the few, but nasty displays of public indecency and mindless civil disobedience that had sporadically plagued previous outings. Perhaps the pro-abortion crowed has finally gotten the message that they have lost this argument, with today's poor turnout a tacit admission that the pro-life movement is in ascendance and on the road to victory.

Dutch PM Balkenende Calls Wilders' Quran Film, "Cause For A Severe Crisis"

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

January 18, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The incipient release of Dutch politician Geert Wilders' film on the Quran is causing a "severe crisis" according to the country's Prime Mininister, Jan Peter Balkenende.

During his Friday press conference he stated, "There have been more crisis in the past, but this is really a strong one," adding that the international attention the film has received, "makes the situation more complicated" according to Balkenende who hastened to add that, "there is no reason for panic."

Balkenende's statement indicated that the Dutch cabinet would "resist" attempts to use the film to "needlessly" hurt "belief...or ethnic" groups, "the cabinet we will resist that always."

CAIR Alleges Candidates Are "Running As Fast As They Can" Away From Muslims

January 18, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Council On American Islamic Relations [CAIR] the Saudi funded unindicted co-conspirator in the largest federal terror prosecution in history is claiming - sans evidence, via its ubiquitous newsletter - that GOP presidential candidates are, "falling over each other to demonize Muslims and Islam. They're trying to appeal to the power of prejudice and hate."

Such charges are an integral part in the stealth jihad being waged by Islamist groups including CAIR intended to cast legitimate critics of radical Islam as Islamophobes and bigots.

One component of that strategy is the groundless contention that there are seven million American Muslims, "the seven-million-strong American Muslim community," a figure which has been thoroughly debunked and proven to be a fabrication. The best estimate that we have of the number of American Muslims is 1.5-1.9 million, making disciples of Islam in the United States an inconsequential minority from an electoral perspective.

Muslim Dutch Labor Party Politician Tells Citizen, "Drop Dead, Convert To Islam"

By Beila Rabinowiz

January 16, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The European press is reporting an incident in which Moroccan born Dutch councilwoman Bouchra Ismaili responded to an email query by a native born citizen, suggesting that he, "drop dead convert to Islam...you are the foreigners here."

The email sender Jos Parbleu, told Holland's Algemeen Dagblad newspaper that he was "shocked," adding that "this is a sign of what a disastrous situation has hit the country."

Ismaili said she wrote the comments "in a surge of anger" after hearing someone yell anti-Moroccan comments during the day.

PVV party leader, Geert Wilders - a vocal critic of the radicalization of Holland's Muslim population - is pursuing the matter in the country's Lower House and is calling for Ismaili's resignation. [source, http://www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/3039207/_Marokkaans_PvdA-raadslid_dreigt__.html?p=8,1]

Austrian Politician Susanne Winter Hires Bodyguards After Threatening Video Aired

By Beila Rabinowiz

January 15, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Susanne Winter [see Austrian Politician Faces Jail For Remarks About Islam] the FPO party candidate who is running for the Graz city council in Austria, has been forced to retain the services of bodyguards after a threatening video was placed on You Tube.

The video includes threats and the sounds of machine gun fire as pictures of the burning World Trade Center are shown. Accompanying the video is a written text:

"Look at this Suzanne, due to your comments something similiar can occur in your country - you will be responsible for it."

Austrian Politician Faces Jail For Remarks About Islam

By Beila Rabinowiz

January 15, 2007 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Susanne Winter, the top candidate for the FPO's [Austrian Freedom Party] city council election in the city of Graz, is facing up to two years in jail for referring to Mohammed as a, "child molester" and a "field marshal" who had written the Quran "during epileptic fits."

She also characterized Islam as, "a totalitarian system of domination that should be thrown back to its birthplace on the other side of the Mediterranean." She made her remarks during a speech to the party. [source, http://www.wienerzeitung.at/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabID=4082&Alias=wzo&cob=322068Ītpage=0]

The president of the Austrian Muslim community, Anas Shakfeh, warned that there is a very "wrathful mood" among Muslims and stated that violence could not be ruled out. These threats have prompted public prosecutors to go into full dhimmi mode, preparing to criminalize Ms. Winter's speech. [source, http://www.ftd.de/politik/international/303410.html]

Towards that end they have started an investigation of the matter to, "determine whether she violated the law forbidding expressions of racial hatred."

If Winter is tried and subsequentally convicted on this charge she could face up to two years in jail. [source, http://diepresse.com/home/politik/innenpolitik/355445/index.do?_vl_backlink=/home/politik/innenpolitik/index.do]

The political witch-hunt being engaged in by the Austrian government against Susanne Winters is part of a widening campaign in European countries to silence right wing politicians who are vocal critics of the Islamization of Europe.

In Holland, Geert Wilders, head of the Freedom Party lives under constant guard due to threats on his life made by radical Islamists and he is facing government harassment and scrutiny by public prosecutors intent on taking legal action to stop him from airing a film that he produced which is critical of Islam.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and CAIR - Interfaith Outreach Betrayed


An Open Letter to the USCCB

January 14, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - One of the key disclosures so far to come from evidence presented by the government in the ongoing Holy Land Foundation prosecution is the existence of a 1991 secret plan drawn up by the terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood [see On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America] designed to facilitate stealth jihad - a "Civilization-Jihadist-Process" in their own words - against the West, with the goal of supplanting the secular rule of law with Sharia.

This plan was not new even in 1991, referring as it did to a similar set of recommendations put together in 1987 by the same group.

At the end of the above referenced document the Brotherhood identifies some of its key partners in furthering the goals set forth in the plan, one of those organizations [itemized as #22] is the Islamic Association for Palestine, the IAP.

As will be shown below, this is a critical piece of information, useful as a starting point in evaluating the U.S. Catholic Church's interfaith outreach to Islam - specifically the program conducted by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops [USCCB] - which in our estimation has gone seriously awry and inching towards gross negligence.

As a matter of background, the USCCB is an assembly of the hierarchy of the Catholic Church of the United States designed to help direct pastoral matters in the American Catholic Church. In 1964, Pope Paul VI created a department in the Roman Curia for outreach to people of other religions and in 1988 the effort was re-launched under the title, Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue [PCID] The PCID however is not responsible for dialogue with disciples of Judaism as duty falls under the jurisdiction of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity.

Courtesy of the omnipresent CAIR email newsletter, it came to our attention at the beginning of last August that an "interfaith" meeting was planned between the USCCB and the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR], to be held on the 21st of that month.

That meeting took place as planned and was attended by a representative of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, Director of the Islamic Society of Orange County. The location of the meeting was the Council on American Islamic Relations' [CAIR] Capitol Hill Headquarters, 453 New Jersey Avenue, S.E., Washington, D.C.

Concerned that the meeting might well be seen as bestowing the "official seal of approval" of the USCCB on the controversial group, we entered into a dialogue with a highly placed functionary in that body.

Veteran Support Group - Move America Forward - Blasts Phony NY Times, "Killer Vet" Story

January 14, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Move America Forward [MAF], America's largest grassroots pro-troop organization today released its analysis of an article appearing in yesterday's New York Times, "Across America, Deadly Echoes of Foreign Battles," which darkly suggests that returning vets are engaging in an unprecedented, nationwide spree of murder and mayhem.

The group charges the influential liberal newspaper with, "demonstrably erroneous and false reporting," especially the author's shameful conclusion, that "Taken together, they paint the patchwork of a quiet phenomenon, tracing a cross-country trail of death and heartbreak."

As detailed by MAF chairman Melanie Morgan, "It took seven New York Times researchers to find 121 cases in which veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan committed a killing in the United States, or were charged with one, upon returning home to this country," yet this level of investigation only turned up 121 possible instances of murder in a returning population of veterans numbering over 1.5 million.

A simple running of the figures results in an overall worst case murder rate for veterans, over the 6 years of the conflict, of just 1.34 incidents per 100,000.

Given that the U.S. murder rate in the last year for which data is available [2006] is 5.7% per 100,000, the Times' article actually proves that military service instills a sense of adherence to the rule of law and a general rejection of violence as a method of settling problems, that is far beyond that of the general populace.

CENTCOM Rejects CAIR

January 13, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - On Friday the U.S. Department of Defense, Central Command [CENTCOM] confirmed that an upcoming event featuring a speech by CAIR-Tampa Executive Director Ahmed Bedier, had been cancelled or, as CENTCOM put it, "postponed."

No future date is planned.

The event had been scheduled to take place on Tuesday, January 15th. A CENTCOM representative declined to state the reason for the "postponement."

The decision to cancel Bedier's appearance occurred after a phone conversation on Thursday between Joe Kaufman, Chairman of Americans Against Hate [AAH], and a CENTCOM official, who said that he would bring the matter up for discussion.

AAH had discovered that Bedier was speaking at the government agency from a posting on the website of radio talk show host Michael Savage. According to that lead, Bedier was going to address the nation's central military command about such controversial topics as jihad, martyrdom and dhimmitude [serving as a non-Muslim under Muslim rule], followed by a "question and answer session."

Temple University Rejects Endowed Chair For Islamist Professor

By Beila Rabinowitz and William Mayer

January 7, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - According to news accounts, Temple University has rejected a suspicious offer of $1.5 million by a Saudi tied, Islamist organization called the International Institute of Islamic Thought [IIIT], to endow a chair in Islamic studies headed by current Temple religion professor Mahmoud Mustafa Ayoub. [see Ayoub's CV here, http://www.temple.edu/religion/faculty/ayoub.html]

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer:

"Last spring, an Islamic group came to Temple University with an extremely generous offer: $1.5 million for an endowed chair in Islamic studies to honor religion professor Mahmoud Ayoub. After months of talks the deal fell apart when trustees and others raised concerns about the donor, the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a nonprofit research organization that was included in a government probe into funding of suspected terrorists...IIIT was eager to work with the school because of its association with Ayoub and former professor Ismail Al-Faruqi...a cofounder of IIIT. [source, http://www.philly.com/inquirer/front_page/20080105_Donor_cancels_Islamic_chair_for_Temple.html

Explaining the rejection, Ayoub suggested Islamophobia as the cause, lamenting:

"They did not want a chair of Islamic studies funded by a Muslim organization...That is really a sad thing, because part of the chair's mandate was to encourage and engage in interfaith dialogue with Jews and Christians and others."

Iowa And Beyond Deciphered

An Op-Ed Special to PipeLineNews.org by the Mad Piper

January 5, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Ok, so once again it falls on my shoulders to explain all of this to you. There is no reason to worry they're sufficiently wide and manly enough to handle the load.

First the key point about Iowa - Hillary was shellacked, crushed, ground up like Saddam used to do to his enemies before feeding the remains to his Dobermans. She has gone from inevitable to pitiable; of course it couldn't happen to a nicer person.

What does Iowa mean?

Not much really, it's a matter of perceptions but when you have no substance, getting pantsed in public amounts to more than simple goose bumps on Hillary's prodigious gams, but more about that later?

First on the GOP side, and this by way of nomenclature only, includes the Huckster - because he has run away screaming, from nearly every position that made the party great.

This requires some 'splainin' as Ricky Ricardo used to say.

The key defining attribute that the Huck has is that he is a Baptist minister. Unfortunately he is a Baptist in the sense that J. Carter was before he rejected "the increasingly rigid" tenets of the faith altogether, in 2000.

Muhammad and Mrs. Jones - Kenny Gamble's Philadelphia Muslim Enclave

By Beila Rabinowitz

January 1, 2008 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Kenny Gamble is best known for being "the architect of the Philly Soul Sound." His catalog of hits includes "Me and Mrs. Jones" and he and longtime collaborator Leon Huff are slated to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. But Gamble is also the architect of a planned stealth Islamist enclave in Philadelphia where he is better known in Muslim circles as Brother Luqman Abdul Haqq.

Gamble has admitted that he intends to bring about the Muslim community in South Philadelphia through his "Universal Companies" and proclaims that his state and federally subsidized funded building endeavors are part of an Islamist blueprint, "We are not down here just for Universal-we are down here for Islam."

In 1975 after a personal crisis Gamble converted to Islam and took the name of Luqman Abdul Haqq. Founding an organization called "The United Muslim Movement," he opened a masjid of the same name. In 1993 he formed the "Universal Companies" specializing in urban revitalization projects. Both UMM and UC's mission statements are virtually identical.

Recently the United Muslim Masjid which Gamble founded and built "hosted" a conference call from Jamil Al Amin, the former H. Rap Brown, now serving a life sentence for murdering a police officer:

"...A highlight of one meeting, for example, was when we had Imam Jamil Al-Amin on speaker phone talking to us from his Georgia prison. MANA and its members have raised and donated several thousands of dollars to his family and legal defense team. Imam Jamil has recently been transferred to a "supermax" prison in Colorado, and we ask that you make du'a for him." [source, http://www.mana-net.org/pages.php?ID=&NUM=164]
