There are black marker "X"s drawn on the faces of the portraits of two Muslim men on my living room wall. One is the 9/11 suicide bomber Mohammed Atta. The other is of a person who cannot take his wife on a visit to a Muslim country because she would be required to wear the full-covering garment required of the wife of a Muslim man.

An attempt is being made to have the ground around the Twin Towers site in lower Manhattan declared a national monument. This would prevent the construction of a large size Muslim mosque, which survivors of the 9/11 victims feel is an affront to America and an insult to the memories of family and friends who died there in the Twin Towers.

It will be instructive to see how much cooperation comes from the White House in their behalf. If the treatment of Israel by President Obama personally, and by his administration representatives, is any indicator, the mosque will be allowed to rise from the ashes of the World Trade Center towers.

    What Happened to the Jews of Medina

    This is the story of the tragic end of the Jews of Medina. A case of ethnic cleansing, betrayal and genocide carried out by the Messenger of Allah (PBUH). The prophet raided the 2000 year old Jewish communities of Medina, killed their men, confiscated their properties, enslaved their wives and children and banished the unwanted with no provocation on the part of the Jews. The holy Prophet's sole motive was greed for their wealth and lust for their women.

    It is difficult for us to find the truth about what really happened to the Jewish inhabitants of Medina at the time of Muhammad. There are no independent sources and the Jews who where eventually exterminated by Muhammad left nothing for us to refer to. We are left only with the Muslim historians’ version, which obviously tell the story tainted with their fanatical faith to their prophet and their hatred of the Jews that is conspicuous in every sentence they wrote about them.

    Wake up America. Wake up your elected officials, and elect new ones. Muslim College Opens in US With Hopes — and Suspicions. Hopes of spreading sharia law, and they start by applying sharia at the college where men and women are segregated.

    Taqiyya - Lying For Islam

    [Excerpt: "Taqiyya is about deception -- lulling Western people into a false sense of security, while, in reality, Islam directs Muslim immigrants to "appear integrated" while actually living as a state-within-a-state."]

    Senior Hamas member Marzook conspired with Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad, and others to establish what the United States government has termed “front organizations” to support and advance the interests of Hamas and radical Islam in the United States. IAP provided the
    Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) with employees, funding, operational
    expertise, and ideological guidance.
