By now you’ve seen it all over the news. “Rep.Virgil Goode, Fifth District of Virginia, sent a letter to some voters in his district attacking Minnesota Representative Ellison’s plan to use the Koran as the scripture by which he will be sworn into office for the coming Congressional term.”
If you want a “fair and balanced” view from the far left, go to today’s New York Times and read The Lone Muslim Congressman Speaks Out. It’s a recap of CNN’s Wolf Blitzer’s gentle interview with Ellison. Oh, and of course Blitzer asks Ellison if he thinks Goode is a Bigot. Not surprisingly, Blitzer failed to mention Ellison’s anti-semitism or his C.A.I.R. sponsorship. I do suggest that you read this if only to leave a comment!
Gates of Vienna posted on Mr. Ellison’s somewhat checkered past, including his extreme anti-Semitism and the fact that CAIR had underwritten his campaign.
The leftist Jihad has already taken over Europe. Read today’s “The Death of Europe."
Mark Steyn's excellent new book is raising an issue that very few people are thinking about these days; namely the demographic time bomb that threatens the very existence of Europe as we know it. . . According to writer Paul Bekien of the Brussels Journal – who catalogued some of these figures – the European decline also explains the anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism in Europe. America and Israel will fight for freedom. Too many Europeans will submit to tyranny.
A very good read on this Jihad in the west is “The Grand Chess Masters: The Bear and the Dragon,” by David J. Jonsson, author of Islamic Economics and the Final Jihad: The Muslim Brotherhood to the Leftist/Marxist - Islamist Alliance (Salem Communications (May 30, 2006).
Here are some excerpts:
. . .Few are addressing who are the enemies and what are their goal. In effect the West is still rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, deciding how may tables to have and what time the games should start and of course when they should end.
The game has started, the strategies for "Checkmate" are in place. It is time for the America and the West to wake up. The "Cold War" has not ended, the nuclear armed totalitarian regimes have united, and this time they have added the Isalmists who are willing to die for the cause. . . .
Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu on Novemeber 13 drew a direct analogy between Iran and Nazi Germany.
"It's 1938 and Iran is Germany. And Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs," Netanyahu told delegates to the annual United Jewish Communities General Assembly, repeating the line several times, like a chorus, during his address. "Believe him and stop him," the opposition leader said of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. "This is what we must do. Everything else pales before this." . . .
The Isalmists along with their Leftist/Marxist alliance partners meanwhile are quietly assuming key positions in the governments, the media and even financial institutions. . . .
The enemy has the goal of removing the hegemony of the United States and the West and to take away our freedoms and liberty to be replaced by a totalitarian government in a New World Order. The strategy is not limited to war, WMDs, and terrorism; it extends to economic warfare, illegal immigration and open borders, media propaganda and even the control of the government by elected officials. . . .
Perhaps most importantly, the administration needs to have a coherent plan for achieving energy independence. Independence cannot be attained in a reasonable time frame through alternative fuels such as wind, solar, ethanol and biomass. All energy forms and conservation must be addressed in an all out program.
Republicans last year offered oil and other fuel companies some $11 billion in tax breaks – funds that will encourage them to drill more domestically. These provisions are now in jeopardy by the newly elected members of Congress. Last year the UK instituted increased tax on domestic production, the result was a decline in exploration in the North Sea. The UK is now a net importer of natural gas.
Funding for the totalitarian regimes bent on the destruction of America, Israel and the West comes from the control of oil and the sale of products and services purchased by the U.S. and other Western countries in the name of near term increased profits and low cost. Remember you are voting at the ballot box and the dollars and Euro you spend. Vote wisely!
Meanwhile the Iran-Armenia gas pipeline will be launched in March of 2007.
On Tuesday, the Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, predicted that Britain, Israel and the US would eventually disappear, like the Egyptian pharaohs.
"Any power that is close to God will survive while the powers who are far from God will disappear like the pharaohs," he was quoted as saying.
Ahmadinejad on Thursday once again proclaimed that the Iranian nation will celebrate the international acknowledgement of its nuclear programmes on the 28 anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution next February. . .
Iran plans to make operational 3000 centrifuges until the end of the Iranian year (20 March 2007) but so far only two cascades of each 164 centrifuges have officially been completed.
According to the Islamic Republic News Agency, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday:
He said the Iranian nation will soon reach the zenith of nuclear success and will celebrate a nuclear victory during the `Ten-Day Dawn' ceremonies (Feb 11-20) marking the anniversary of the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
The Iranian nation will resist bullying powers and will change its approach towards them if they continue in their wrong policies toward the Islamic Republic of Iran, the president said.

Here are some excerpts:
America's enemies took advantage of a quagmired U.S. in Iraq to advance their quest for membership in the nuclear club. North Korea blasted its way into the club to become its ninth member and Iran was well on its way to becoming number ten. Both North Korea and Iran long ago concluded that nuclear power was the only credible deterrent against a U.S. attack. The U.S. predicament also gave Iran a rare opportunity to push its radical Shiite pawns forward in Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories. . .
Clearly, whatever watered down compromise the U.N. Security Council's five permanent members plus Germany can agree to, Iran won't be deterred. Much has been made of Iran's Achilles' heel, e.g., its limited refining capacity for gasoline to keep almost five million vehicles on the road. Three out of four cars are more than 30 years old or have logged 120,000 miles (President Ahmadinejad drives a battered 20-year-old Peugeot). Even though it pumps 10 percent of the world's oil, Iran still has to import 43 percent of its gasoline, . . .
Iran's staunch ally Venezuela has pledged to make up whatever shortfall occurs. Cars and trucks are being converted to run on natural gas at over 100 conversion centers. The government believes this will save $5 billion a year on gasoline imports. Iran has the world's second largest natural gas reserve after Russia -- 16 percent of the world's total. . .
Baiting the U.S. and its allies, Ahmadinejad announced Iran "is now a nuclear power" and added the United States and Britain to Israel on the list of countries doomed to disappear. "The Iranian nation will continue on its nuclear path powerfully and will celebrate a nuclear victory soon," said the diminutive president.
Radical Islam is not confined to Iraq and Iran. It is spreading among Europe's 20 million Muslims from Sweden to Spain. Militant minorities reject multiculturalism. And non-Muslim Europeans are beginning to reassess their pre-World War II and post-Cold War doctrine that appeasement is the better part of valor.
