Back in 2006, then FBI director Robert Mueller prophetically described the radical Islamist conversion machine operating throughout U.S. prisons, to a Senate committee. He said that prisons were a “fertile ground” for Islamic extremists, and that they targeted inmates for introduction to the militant Wahhabi and Salafist strains of Islam.
The recent so-called “lone wolf” terrorist attacks in Oklahoma City, New York, and just over our northern border in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, may be the product of such radicalization.
In April 2010, Larry James murdered his mother, pregnant wife, 7-month-old son, 3-year-old niece and 16-year-old niece for refusing to convert to Islam. James converted in 2007, while in a U.S. prison.
Then two months ago Colleen Hufford, a 54-year-old grandmother and factory worker in Oklahoma, was beheaded with a produce knife by Alton Nolen who likely converted to Islam in a U.S. prison. Nolen is being charged with workplace violence.
Last month NYPD officer Kenneth Healey, 25, was axed to death with a hatchet to the side of the head. He was not attacked by a “lone wolf,” but by ex-con Zale Thompson. New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton has called it a terrorist attack, and the NYPD might want to look at Thompson’s record in California where he did two brief terms in California prisons.
The statistics are staggering, and woefully out of date. One out of three African-American inmates in U.S. prisons convert to Islam while incarcerated.
This statistic is no longer limited to African-Americans in prison. The Huffington Post reported an estimated 35,000 – 40,000 inmates convert to Islam each year, and that 15 percent of the total U.S. prison population or 350,000 inmates are Muslim.
This is more than 18 times the national representation of Muslims in America, reported to be 0.8 percent. Prisons are churning out converts to Islam who are taught they are righteously entitled to control the religion, speech, and dress of family, co-workers and strangers.
The key to conversion success is clear. Our government has been contracting and paying Muslim Brotherhood front groups, such as GSISS (The Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences) and ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) to screen and assign Muslim prison chaplains for at least 8 years.
While Egypt and Saudi Arabia have banned the Muslim Brotherhood, classifying it as a terror group, the White House, U.S. prisons, and the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security continue to work with Muslim Brotherhood groups.
For example, Paul Pitts served 14 years in prison for murder, where he converted to Islam and became Imam Abdu-Shahid. He was paroled in 2001 and hired as a prison chaplain in 2007 with an annual salary of $49,471. In Feb 2010, he was caught trying to bring scissors and razor blades into the Manhattan Detention Complex.
A New York City corrections department source told the New York Post: “It’s a disgrace that taxpayers are funding Muslim chaplains who not only have criminal records, but also are promoting violence.”
Abdu-Shahid’s boss – head chaplain Umar Abdul-Jalil – was hired at an annual salary of $76, 602 even though he served 14 years for dealing drugs. In 2006, he was suspended for two weeks without pay after declaring that “the greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House.” He continues to oversee 40 prison chaplains.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Wallace Gene Marks converted under Imam Umar while in prison for weapon possession. He was hired as a one of the first paid Muslim chaplains in 1975 and has hired nearly 45 chaplains. Imam Umar says that prison “is the perfect recruitment and training grounds for radicalism and the Islamic religion” and that 9/11 hijackers should be honored as martyrs. “Funded by the Saudi government he traveled often to Saudi Arabia and brought that country’s harsh form of Islam to New York’s expanding ranks of Muslim prisoners.”

You do understand that the extreme left wing of the Democratic party actually hates America, don’t you? The use every opportunity they can get to speak out against the supposed evils that America has committed and call for the so-called ‘oppressed’ enemies of these actions to fight back and reclaim their own rights. This is exactly why it is not surprising to many of my long-time readers when they hear that the very reverend Jesse Jackson has actually told a group of Arab Americans that they are ‘the New America,’ and must fight against the system.
You see, folks, Jackson is just your typical appeaser. He is pandering to this demographic simply in the hopes of getting their votes and earning their trust and support. This is just like how Wisnton Churchill famously remarked that appeasers feed “a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”
The occasion for these interesting remarks by Reverend Jackson came as he appeared before the Arab American Civil Rights League (AACRL). Of course, he told them how much he sympathizes with their cause and also said that they were being shamefully discriminated against and must stand up and fight for their rights. Apparently, some of their members have been placed on no-fly lists and have even had their bank accounts closed. The group also filed a lawsuit earlier this year to try and stop these indignities. Oh, the horror!
All of these laws like the no-fly lists and the ability of the government to close the bank accounts of possible terrorist supporters and sympathizers are the direct result of Muslim terrorists. They are intended to stop people from hijacking planes and funneling money to Arab terror groups. But, as of yet, there is absolutely no evidence that the AACRL has protested a single act of Muslim terror. Not one. They have not said a word against the horrific attack at the Nairobi shopping mall in Kenya. They have not spoken out against the attacks on churches in Egypt or the church bombings in Peshwar.
Nope. Instead their response to worldwide acts of Muslim and Arab terrorism is to act like whiny children and claim that law-abiding Muslims are unfairly being targeted here in America. Yet, they have never done anything to reassure the confidence of anyone that they do not support these acts of cruelty, brutality, and terrorism. If they were to speak out, it just might help their cause. It might work to allay American fears that some (or many) in their group actually support these activities.
Also, as a supposedly committed Christian, one would think that Rev. Jackson would be against bombings of Christian churches around the world. Yet, instead he actively panders to the Muslim community…and has done so since his presidential bids in the early 1980′s. He fuels their sense of victimhood of these groups, attempting to instill in them his own hatred of the American system. You see, it is obvious that the Rev. Jackson feels strongly America is a fundamentally evil country that must at the very least be controlled and constrained, perhaps even destroyed and rebuilt.
So, it really does not come as any surprise when JJ tells these people to “Love yourself. Stand up and fight back.” Or when he tells them that “You are God’s people.” How interesting. Maybe this is also where Obama gets his hatred of the American system. Perhaps this is also why Obama continues ignoring the worldwide war against Christianity.
So, what do YOU think? Should we do away with no-fly lists and bank account closure of possible terrorist supporters? What do you think about Jackson’s comments? Are American Muslims ‘God’s people’ as he says?

A professor is claiming the U.S. Military is a greater threat to the world than the Islamic State and that American men and women in uniform commit crimes equal to – or worse – than ISIS fanatics.
University of Arizona instructor Musa al-Gharbi – who is (shocker) a Muslim – has written an article in the left-wing TruthOut website that has generated outrage and controversy for claiming the United States doesn’t have the moral authority to even criticize Islamic extremists.
“It would not be a stretch to say that the United States is actually a greater threat to peace and stability in the region than ISIS—not least because U.S. policies in Iraq, Libya, and Syria have largely paved the way for ISIS’s emergence as a major regional actor,” al-Gharbi wrote.
It’s difficult to dissect how incredibly stupid the article is. He quotes statistics that are meaningless, overblown or just plain wrong – like claiming 20 percent of women will be victims of rape. This has been debunked long ago.
He claims that our soldiers use rape as a “weapon of war” and use the weapons with the same cruelty as ISIS.
“The initial driver of U.S. involvement was the outrage over ISIS’ capture of thousands of Yazidi women and the sexual violence subsequently exercised against them—horrors which provided moral credence to the war against ISIS in much the same way that the 2001 U.S. war against the Taliban was justified in part by highlighting the plight of Afghan women living under their rule,” he wrote.
He also claims the U.S. Military is “heavily influenced by white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other hate groups, but provides zero factual evidence of a rash of racial attacks to back up his claim.
Clearly, this is all hogwash and deserves to be tossed in the “circular file.” But remember: Mr. al Gharbi and his friends are who’s teaching our children in college now. What else our our college kids being indoctrinated with?
The results of having no strategy are becoming painfully apparent.

A former member of an Oklahoma mosque attended by the suspect in a recent beheading said members and leaders taught radicalism but hid it from the media.
On Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s "The Kelly File," the man appeared in silhouette, using the name Noor.
Noor said he attended the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City for about two years to learn about Islam.
"To the public, the mosque will not promote terrorism or any kind of radical acts," he said. "But when they’re among friends and congregants only, they will promote the true teachings of Islam, which include the offer to non-Muslims – the choice, rather – that you must convert, live under Islamic rule, or be fought against."
He said he was told that Muslims support Palestinian suicide bombings in Israel because they are the only weapons the Palestinians have. He said he was warned, "Do not mention this to the media because they would not understand."
He said two friends told him they would welcome Osama bin Laden into their homes if he arrived at their door.
On one occasion, he was invited to go shooting. Two targets were identified as former President George W. Bush and former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.
He said he finally left because he thought the mosque was too radical. He said his last visit was in 2011, at the request of law enforcement.
Alton Nolen, 30, is charged with killing his co-worker Colleen Hufford, 54, by cutting off her head at the food processing plant where they worked. Witnesses said he was shouting Arabic phrases during the attack.

Index Finds 61 Percent Jump in Terror Attacks in One Year
Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014 09:09 PM By Cathy Burke
More ways to share…
Tell my politician
The number of terrorist attacks around the world skyrocketed 61 percent from 2012 to 2013, a startling new report shows.
The Global Terrorism Index, released Tuesday by the Institute for Economics and Peace, ranks 162 countries based on the impact of terrorist activities as well as an analysis of economic and social factors.
The latest report finds that 17,958 people were killed in terror attacks last year, a rise of 61 percent from the previous year, with 82 percent of the deaths occurring in five countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, and Syria.
Combined, they accounted for nearly 15,000 fatalities, a summary of the report shows.
Among them, Iraq holds the top spot with about 2,492 terrorist attacks in 2013 that killed 6,362 people, the report says.
The report also identifies the four groups responsible for the deadly destruction
as the Taliban, Boko Haram, the Islamic State (ISIS), and al-Qaida. Their "key commonality," the report says, is that they all represent radical variants of Islam.
The primary method of choice in the terror strikes was explosives, the report finds, but since 2000 just 5 percent of deadly terror strikes have been suicide attacks.
The 2014 report does not include the recent insurgence of ISIS militants.

Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!
By Ishaan Tharoor September 25
A picture dated June 18 and made available by UAE’s official news agency WAM on Sept. 25 shows Maj. Mariam al-Mansouri, the first female pilot to join the Emirates Air Forces, walking alongside her comrades at an air force base. (HO/WAM via AFP)
Maj. Mariam al-Mansouri, the first female fighter pilot in the history of the United Arab Emirates, led the the Gulf state’s bombing raids over Syria this week. Photos of al-Mansouri, beaming from her cockpit, that were released by the country’s state news agency have taken social media by storm.
The 35-year-old squadron commander was likely part of sorties that dropped bombs on Islamic State positions in Syria’s Idlib, Aleppo and Raqqa provinces. Some reports suggest that she even spearheaded her country’s mission, which complemented the parallel efforts of four other Arab states backing the U.S.: Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain and Qatar.
According to a profile in the National, the Abu Dhabi-born al-Mansouri harbored an ambition to join the air force since her teenage years, but had to bide her time until women were permitted to enlist. She graduated Khalifa bin Zayed Air College in 2007 and is now a veteran F-16 pilot.
In earlier interviews, al-Mansouri has insisted that she received no special treatment because of her gender. "Everyone is required to have the same high level of combat competence," she told Deraa Al Watan, a U.A.E. magazine.
It’s not clear how vital her and her compatriots’ efforts were in the air campaign against the Islamic State, which is entrenched over a vast swath of territory in Syria and Iraq. More important was the sheer fact of her presence. "While Arab participation in the strikes is of more symbolic than military value," writes the Wall Street Journal’s Ahmed Al Omran, "analysts described it as a bold move for a group of countries that for long preferred to act via proxies instead of any direct involvement."
The symbolism of a female fighter pilot bringing the heat to the women-enslaving Islamic State ought be lost on no one and is useful propaganda for the Emiratis. To that end, Saudi Arabia also released pictures of its pilots who took part in airstrikes, including Prince Khaled bin Salman, the son of the kingdom’s crown prince. Long blamed for their listlessness and inaction, the kingdoms of the Gulf may try to change their image in the ongoing campaign.
In terms of gender equality, the U.A.E. stands in relative contrast to Saudi Arabia, where women are not permitted to drive cars, don’t have voting rights (more enlightened rules come into effect in 2015), and cope with a whole regime of draconian, religious laws that circumscribe all aspects of their lives. On the same day al-Mansouri won plaudits for her role in the airstrikes, debate broke out in Saudi Arabia over the propriety of a woman — clad head to toe in conservative garb — who was filmed riding a horse while waving a Saudi flag.
The U.A.E. is no paragon of women’s rights either. Female migrant workers in the country face harrowing conditions and abuse, while Emirati laws still don’t provide legal recourse for marital rape. Men also have license to discipline their wives and children through physical violence. And extramarital sex can land you in legal trouble. In one notorious case last year, a Norwegian woman received a 16-month prison sentence after she reported being raped to the police, who did not believe her claim that the act was non-consensual. The international outcry that followed eventually led to a pardon, but it underlined how much more progress the U.A.E. still has to make, despite al-Mansouri’s bravery and skill.
