"For Zion's sake I shall not hold my peace, And for Jerusalem's sake I shall not rest."

When Wikileaks published classified documents which exposed American and coalition soldiers as well as cooperating Afghans and Pakistanis to reprisals by Al Qaeda and/or the Taliban, I didn’t approve.

However, two sides needed to be considered.

Those American government documents revealed U.S. Intel, which was (or should have been) also known to President Barack Hussein Obama, that Iran was playing a significant role. Iran was (and probably still is) arming, planning and organizing the Terrorist dominated Taliban and Al Qaeda to blow up and murder American soldiers in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq – for starters.

Yet, Obama recently had an Iranian representative attending military briefing with General David Petraeus, thus giving Iran the stamp of approval and further knowledge of U.S. thinking  - especially regarding American withdrawal dates. 

Why in the name of sanity did Obama give away America’s ETD (Estimated Time of Departure)? 

Moreover, Obama has been acting as a safety shield for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to complete Iran’s weaponizing of its Nuclear Bomb capabilities. 

Of course, this is coupled with Obama’s so-called “outreach” to the Muslim world of 57 Muslim countries of which 22 are Muslim and Arab.   This includes most prominently Iran and Syria who are threatening Terror against Israel, America and other countries of the Free West. 

Much of this has been ignored by the Left Liberal Media until Juan Williams, himself a well-known Left Liberal analyst, expressed his own inner fear when boarding a plane with Muslims dressed in typical Muslim garb.  He was summarily fired by NPR (often characterized as National Palestine Radio due to their Left leaning pro-Arab/Muslim programming. 

Regrettably, many of NPRs affiliates follow this line – such as Chicago’s WBEZ featuring Jerome MacDonald who regularly interviews Muslims, Arabs, Arabists and Jewish Leftists.   (We fondly remember whenEZ had Sondra Gair, z’l, as its noon anchor who hosted truly fair and balanced interviews.)

In a timely fashion, we received a researched report which has diligently compiled Islamic Terrorist attacks globally covering the past 2 months.   Imagine how many documented attacks by Muslim Jihadists have occurred – just during the past two months? You could take it back to 9/11 when the 15 Saudis and 4 Egyptians fly into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and the ground in Pennsylvania for Islam and Allah.

But, then you would have to go back to 1993 when the blind Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman who first organized the bombing of the Twin Towers.  Of course, we can’t forget Yassir Arafat, the PLO head, who introduced the Muslim methods of hijacking airplanes and blowing them up.

You would need reams of paper to list the global horrors of Islam and Muslims who religiously follow the injunctions of the Koran and Muhammed’s oral Hadith. 

The West, even the Leftists are beginning to show faint recognition of the threat of Islam and Muslims, although they mostly prefer to blame their pain on the Jewish State of Israel.


A few excerpts from “Islam: Make a True Difference in the World – One Body at a Time” :  (1)

“Islamic Terrorists have carried out more than 16,270 deadly terror     attacks since 9/11.”

“Monthly Jihad Report: September, 2010:  Jihad attacks: 172; Countries: 23; Religions 5; Dead Bodies: 703; Critically injured: 1454”

“Ramadan Scorecard:  2010:  In the name of Islam: Terror Attacks: 226 – Dead Bodies: 1028 - In the name of All Other Religions: 1; Dead Bodies – 1:

“In 2007 Islam and Judaism’s holiest holidays overlapped for 10 days.Muslims racked up 397 dead bodies in 94 terror attacks across 10 countries in 2007 while Jews worked on their 159thNobel Prize.”

“More people are killed by Islamists each year than in all 350 of the Spanish Inquisition combined.”

“Islamic Terrorists murder more people every day than the Ku Klux Klan has in the last 50 years.”

“More civilians were killed by Muslim extremists in 2 hours on 9/11/01 that in the 36 years of sectarian conflict in N. Ireland.”

“19 Muslim hijackers killed more innocents in 2 hours on 9/11 than the number of American criminals executed in the last 65 years.”
