Richard Reid the Shoe Bomber: Jail is where Allah wants me


This is the first extraordinary picture of maniac Shoe Bomber Richard Reid behind bars as he dreams that Allah will set him free.

The UK Mirror has exclusively seen prison letters from the 33-year-old Briton who is serving 110 years in a US jail for trying to bomb nearly 200 air passengers out of the sky.

He never once expresses remorse or regret for his vile crime. Instead, he rambles that "everything which occurs in this life contains some good for us".

But though the simple-minded street mugger turned zealous Muslim convert believes he will be rewarded in heaven he fantasies of freedom on earth.

Declaring his belief that God will make his delusional hopes come true, he writes: "I had a couple of good dreams about my situation changing for the better in the not so distant future, so this is a blessing from Allah.

"I place my trust in Allah that he will bring that into fruition and ask him to give me patience until the time when that occurs."

Al-Qaeda trained Reid is serving his time in ADX Florence, a Supermax jail in Colorado where he is so reviled by inmates he lives in virtual isolation.

Will the Democrats find common sense and come around; Highly unlikely

According to the Washington Post, James Clyburn (Democrat, South Carolina) said that a strongly positive statement progress in Iraq by General Petraeus likely would split Democrats in the House and impede his party's efforts to cut and run from Iraq. (Heavens forbid, the Dems would not want to do the right this against radical Islam)

Clyburn complained that General Petraeus carries significant weight among the 47 members of the Blue Dog caucus in the House. However it is questionable if the good General carries as much weight with moderate and liberal (and turncoat) Republicans who care more about elections that the protection of the free world from radical Islam. According to Clyburn, a strongly positive report by Petraeus would be "a real big problem for us." Clyburn's candor may be commendable, but it sure does illustrate the Dems cut and run policies in Iraq. And, it sure appears to me that the Dems do not really care about Iraq, war on terror, or Islamofascism.

Clyburn, a positive report would be a "real big problem for us. Source:

The entire democratic party is suffering a leadership crisis meltdown. Their (the top leaders) appear to have extreme mental disorders. God help us from these nuts.

The DNC party of no on national security, including the border crisis, is about to get its clocked cleaned AGAIN for

1) lying
2) dirty political scam games
3) failing to defend our kids from pedophiles, jihadists, and Mexican crime cartels alike

They can't seem to figure out that SAFETY comes first and social feel-good achieve nothing worth having AIN'T gonna fly.

Hell, even the latest health bill has pro-illegal tax crap in it. Gotta keep that crime cartel vote happy, don't you know -- they might stop their real estate scam payoffs and force some poli-slime to actually earn their damned Life Styles of the Rich and Famous.

VP latest to make official denial, some call it 'gaming semantics'

It is official: Cheney says so, "No NAFTA Superhighway."  Would you buy a used car off this man?   Hey Dick, what's up with the multinational business agenda and the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America?

Despite evidence to the contrary, Vice President Dick Cheney says there is no "secret plan" to create a continent-crossing superhighway to help facilitate a merger of the United States, Mexico and Canada.

"The administration is not engaged in a secret plan to create a 'NAFTA super highway,'" asserts Cheney in a recent letter to a constituent, according to a copy of the message obtained by WND.

The vice president's letter quotes an Aug. 21 statement from the U.S. Department of Transportation that, "The concept of a super highway has been around since the early 1990s, usually in the form of a claim that the U.S. Department of Transportation is going to designate such a highway." DOT then refutes the claim, stating, "The Department of Transportation has never had the statutory authority to designate a NAFTA super highway and has never sought such authority."

Democrats accused of sandbagging Gonzales

by Jon Ward

White House officials accused senators of asking Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales questions about a program they knew he could not address in public, in order to justify their calls for an investigation by a special prosecutor.

"You've got an interesting situation when members of Congress, knowing that somebody is constrained by matters of classification, they can ask very broad questions ... they know the person sitting on the other side cannot answer thoroughly in an open session," White House spokesman Tony Snow said.

His comments were aimed at a group of senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee who grilled Mr. Gonzales for several hours Tuesday about the Bush administration's terrorist-surveillance program.

Senators accused Mr. Gonzales of contradicting past statements and of misleading them about whether there was disagreement within the administration over the program.

That same day, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III testified before a House panel, and Democrats said his testimony contradicted Mr. Gonzales'.

For the rest of the story: Sandbaggers

Obama the misguided or misinformed: Is he presidential?

Even as Sen. Barack Obama found himself under fire from the Hillary Clinton campaign over what she called his "naive" intention to meet with leaders of countries hostile to the U.S., the presidential hopeful praised the recent court decision overturning one city's attempt to protect itself from hostile foreigners filling their streets with drugs, crime and gangs as  "a victory for all Americans." 

Originally, Hazleton passed an ordinance to deter housing owners from renting to illegals in an effort to reduce the crime and drain on city services associated with a large influx of illegal immigrants.

Now some half-witted black robed judge says that the city cannot pass ordinances because it has no authority.  And, Barack says it is a good thing.  WTF?

Terrorists Standing by on American Soil

Terrorists Standing by on American Soil?

By John Jessup, CBN News
July 28, 2007 - WASHINGTON - Warnings about the threat of terrorism here in the homeland keep coming in.

The latest warning comes from the Director of National Intelligence Mike McConnell.

"The most serious threat is that the plotters that are being observed will be successful in penetrating our defenses and conducting attacks that will result in mass casualties."

McConnell says he believes al-Qaeda, in some cases, already has people positioned in the U.S., where small numbers of operatives are raising funds for attacks on American soil.

"Their intent is to effect an attack with mass casualties, secondary attempt would be political or infrastructure targets," he told NBC's Meet the Press.

Last week, McConnell specifically mentioned targets such as Chicago's Sears Tower or other prominent buildings in Seattle, Los Angeles, or Dallas.

Another major worry: leading scientists have told ABC News that the U.S. is still vulnerable to attempts to smuggle nuclear material into the country.

The warnings come on the heels of last week's National Intelligence Estimate in which the nation's 16 spy agencies agreed al Qaeda has strengthened its ability to attack the United States - and has regrouped in the mountainous frontier between Pakistan and Afghanistan.

It is here where intelligence analysts believe Osama bin Laden, himself, is hiding and an area in which the Bush administration has not ruled out military strikes.

"Just because we don't speak about things publicly, doesn't mean we're not doing many of the things you're talking about," Homeland Security Advisor Frances Townsend said.

But Pakistan refutes that bin Laden is in the country in what is becoming a diplomatic row between the U.S. and a key ally in the war on terror.

"We can't allow another safe haven to exist. But if we do things to prevent that safe haven from being created that undermine the government, we create a bigger safe haven with an unstable Pakistan," Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., said.

Administration officials acknowledge growing concern about unrest in Pakistan and say it could have a quote severe impact on the U.S.- led global war on terror.

This Explains Liberalism

Courtesy of Big Dog's Weblog: This Explains Liberalism

By Big Dog on Jul 27, 2007 in Featured

Today’s older liberals are the hippies from the 1960s. These people are the ones who protested the war in Vietnam, had love ins and smoked dope while adding little to the value of society. Attired in their tie dyed jeans and driving their VW Beetles, they caused social discourse everywhere they were. Those people had to eventually grow up (or older at least) and they had to get jobs to pay their way through life (those who did not live on welfare). They infested academia and became professors so that they could fill the mush brained youth entrusted to them with liberal pablum. They ran for office so that they could force their social policies and failed liberal ideology upon us.

Those malcontents of the 60s are today’s aging liberals and they have raised a whole generation of younger liberals that wander aimlessly through life. The Democratic Party use to have liberals that were pretty moderate in their thinking and recognized some of the good things about conservatism and some even took conservative stances. JFK had a few disasters in his presidency and made a few huge mistakes (that would haunt us while those hippies were protesting Vietnam) but he recognized the value of tax cuts. So he made one correct choice (he should have driven with the top up as well).

A study just released shows that smoking just one marijuana cigarette can increase a person’s risk for schizophrenia by more than 40 per cent. This study goes a long way in explaining the mental illness known as liberalism. The lifestyle of the hippies is coming back to haunt them and has produced a segment of society that embraces liberalism because of mental illness. The older liberals are addicted to the legal drug, ethyl alcohol. Guys like Ted Kennedy had his brain fried long before the 60s and he continues to fry the few remaining brain cells using the same drug. The study indicates:

‘We believe there is now enough evidence to inform people that using cannabis could increase their risk of developing a psychotic illness later in life.’ Daily Mail UK

One only needs to look at a university to see this is true. People like Ward Churchill are the leftovers from the hippie days and they are mentally ill. Many of these same people probably still smoke dope and thus their illness is more pronounced. Of course, I realize that there are conservatives who smoked dope in the past. That explains the term RINO. They profess to be conservatives but they are really liberals masquerading as conservatives. Think of the people in politics who have very liberal positions and they were probably dope smokers because they suffer from mental illness.

Michael Savage wrote a book entitled “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder” and this study shows why his title is correct..

The only drawback is they might claim a disability in mass and bankrupt the country. Of course, their policies are doing that anyway.



Multi-National Force Iraq; Partners disrupting accelerant flow

Partners disrupting accelerant flow

Soldiers of Company C, 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment have new partners in their efforts to stop accelerant flow into Baghdad.

The 2nd Battalion Wassit Emergency Response Force is now working alongside its Coalition counterparts from the “Dragon Battalion” to establish traffic control points to disrupt the flow of bomb-making material along major thoroughfares southeast of Baghdad.

The 1-15th Inf. Regt., 2nd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, deployed to Iraq in March 2007 and immediately established combat outposts among the communities southeast of Baghdad. As a part of the surge, the Soldiers of 1-15th Inf. Regt. assumed the mission of hindering the flow of insurgents and bomb-making material as they moved north.

Capt. John Horning, commander, Company C, said when the 1-15th Inf. Regt. began conducting missions in early April, traffic control points along the Al Kut Highway were nothing more than “traffic observation” points.

The 3rd platoon of Company C has joined with the ERF to along the Al Kut Highway, near Wahida. The Al Kut highway is lined with businesses in many places and contains key commercial zones in the Fort Benning, Ga., soldiers’ area of operations. The road has also seen the highest number of roadside bombs in the battalion’s area of operations.

The ERF, also known as the “Lions of Wassit,” bring experienced leaders and soldiers onto the Coalition team. Horning said many of the Lions are former Iraqi army paratroopers. Soldiers of the unit maintain higher standards of discipline than many other ISF units and are very well trained, he said.

“They don’t lack motivation, and they don’t lack individual skills,” Horning said. “They are … fearless.”

Sgt. 1st Class Scott Darnell, 3rd platoon sergeant, Company C, concurs.

“They weren’t the regular soldiers under Saddam’s regime,” said Darnell. “The tactics they use are a little more advanced than what we see with the regular Iraqi Security Forces.”

Horning thinks the success of the Lions can easily be seen.

“The best evidence of their success is how quiet it has been along the Al Kut Highway in our area,” Horning said. “All the EFPs (explosively formed penetrators) that we have seen have been outside of their area of operations.”

Besides hindering terrorist activity, the combined traffic control operations provide an opportunity for 1-15th Inf. Regt. Soldiers and ERF personnel to work together and learn from each other. The Company C initiative is focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of traffic control points conducted by the ERF.

Horning believes that while the ERF soldiers possess individual skills above their ISF peers, he also sees where the unit can improve as a whole. Horning said battalion-level planning and “conditions setting” would be areas in which he would like to see the Lions improve.

Even with some deficiencies, Horning said he thinks the ERF help his company greatly.

“Their ability to gather human intelligence is way beyond ours,” said Horning. “We rely on technology and they bring the human element. They complete the puzzle.”

Al Queda turn on themselves...Libs depressed.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for the cowardly liberals and metro-males, but, it appears that we may be starting to see positive results from the surge and the efforts of the finest military forces in the world. For those of us who truly support our troops and their efforts, this is nothing new. (not those who support the troops, but, are against the war.) Good good news for America is bad news for Lib-defeatists such as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durban, John Kerry, Jack Murtha, Jim McDermott, Howard Dean, and the Democrat(ic) National Committee. I surely hope that some of our more vocal liberals and Lollywood elitists will live up to their promise to move out of the country.

Fed up with being part of a group that cuts off a person’s face with piano wire to teach others a lesson, dozens of low-level members of al-Qaeda in Iraq are daring to become informants for the US military in a hostile Baghdad neighborhood.

The ground-breaking move in Doura is part of a wider trend that has started in other al-Qaeda hotspots across the country and in which Sunni insurgent groups and tribal sheikhs have stood together with the coalition against the extremist movement.

“They are turning. We are talking to people who we believe have worked for al-Qaeda in Iraq and want to reconcile and have peace,” said Colonel Ricky Gibbs, commander of the 4th Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, which oversees the area.

Blackfive's Video Potpourri

Cross-posted @ Rosemary's Thoughts.

This first video will last 4:05, and I'm not quite sure if they rescued one of the guys being held or if he was one of the insurgence. Maybe you could help me understand? The name of this clip is "Operation Ithaca - The Fight." (Do not worry. You will not be seeing anything gross.)

In this next clip comes the answer to my question! This clip is 7:59, and the title of it is "Operation Ithaca - Interview." They were successful in this mission, killing 29 and capturing 23 of the enemy. They also rescued 8 hostages who were about to be executed on the day of the mission. Whew! That was close.

This clip is 3:11, and it's title is "AH-64 and C-130 Engage Insurgents." Five insurgents are killed in this one by none other than our USAF! Great job, guys. :)

These next two clips sort of go together, if not by nature then by name. This one is 32 seconds long, and the title is "Crispy Terrorists on the July 14th Menu." It is almost like watching a silent movie, except it is real life...or death to the terrorists as I like to put it. The next clip is titled "Crispy Terrorists on the July 15th Menu" and lasts for 58 seconds.

And to say that the last one is the least one would be an incredibly wrong assumption! This young lady sends it home as to why a Soldier would serve. Here she tells us why she serves. Why I Serve - SSG Shannon Fezer. This clip only lasts for 1:02, yet I wish it were longer. It is people such as she who make me proud to be an American. If you cannot understand this genuine concept, please don't tell me. I don't care if you're a nutjob, just don't prove it on my site! :)

FBI - Iraqis being smuggled across the Rio Grande

FBI - Iraqis Being Smuggled Across the Rio Grande

July 17, 2007 - Brian Ross and ABC’s Blotter report the FBI is investigating an alleged human smuggling operation based in Chaparral, N.M. According to the report, agents say the group is is bringing “Iraqis and other Middle Eastern” individuals across the Rio Grande from Mexico.
An FBI intelligence report distributed by the Washington, D.C. Joint Terrorism Task Force says the illegal ring has been bringing Iraqis across the border illegally for more than a year.
Border Patrol officials in the area said they were unaware of the specifics of the FBI’s report, and federal prosecutors in New Mexico told ABC they had no current cases involving the illegal smuggling of Iraqis.

The FBI report, issued last week, says the smuggling organization “used to smuggle Mexicans, but decided to smuggle Iraqi or other Middle Eastern individuals because it was more lucrative.” Each individual would be charged a fee of $20,000 to $25,000, according to the report.

First Muslim in Congress Should Resign

First Muslim in Congress Should Resign

Crossposted from my friend, Big Dog

Filed at Big Dog on Jul 16, 2007 in Featured

The first Muslim member of the US Congress, Keith Ellison, should resign from that institution. This is the person who used a Koran to swear in thus giving his allegiance to Allah and the will of Islam over that of his allegiance to the US. He is nothing more than the first wave of Muslims who will try to infiltrate the US government so that one day, as the majority, they can subvert the Constitution and impose Sharia Law.

Wow Big Dog, that is pretty harsh. Not as harsh as the words coming out of Ellison’s mouth. At a convention of atheists (it might have been some time ago) Ellison compared President Bush to Adolph Hitler. While the left has long compared Bush to Hitler, coming from a man whose religion espouses killing of those who do not believe in Islam is just a bit too much. Ellison insinuated that the President was responsible for 9/11 in order to trump up a reason for war. This is in line with the bulk of the kooks in the Democratic Party but when it comes from this guy it sounds as if he is trying to excuse the behavior of his brothers in arms. The evidence is quite clear that the government did not blow up the buildings.

Bigdog has his far out theory before but he will do so again for the benefit of Ellison and any other idiot (Muslim or not) who lacks the sense to see it. A bunch of MUSLIMS (followers of ISLAM) hijacked four airplanes and flew them into three different buildings. The fourth plane crashed into the ground because of the acts of the heroic passengers who were able to overpower the cowards from Islam.

Bigdog heard Democrats call for the resignation of Republicans all the time. Some of them are certainly deserved and would mean something if the left actually did the same with regard to their bad actors. Instead we get attacks against Republicans all the time and there is a never ending call for a resignation. This is true all the way to the President who some have demanded resign while others demand impeachment.

Bigdog is of the double standard and he is tired of Muslim cretins like Ellison. Bigdog is now calling for the resignation of this so called man. He does not deserve to be in Congress. He has compared the President to Hitler which makes him no different than Osama bin Laden or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Ellison is a junior terrorist from Islam and needs to go. He needs to be taken to the sandbox in the Middle East and buried like the piece of cat crap that he is.

While we are at it, let’s ban Muslims from serving in our government. The only one they put there has proved that none of them belong.

Will Iran's possible territorial designs on Bahrain affect you?

Will Iran's possible territorial designs on Bahrain affect you?

Posted by my friend Ken Rijock, at World-Check.Com

15 July 2007

Hossein Shariatmadari, the leader of Iran's most conservative hard-line newspaper, Kayhan, in an editorial, has stated that Kingdom of Bahrain is a province of Iran, and that its people want to return to Iranian control. Residents of the former British Protectorate protested this week in front of the Iranian Embassy, demanding that the ambassador be expelled, and the Embassy closed, in response to the publication of this opinion. It remains to be seen whether a diplomatic crisis can be averted. Compliance officers, please pay attention; there may be more going on than political maneouvering.

Iran laid claim to Bahrain in 1970, but the island nation wisely chose independence the following year. Since Iran's press is government-controlled and influenced, the issue is whether this is an early indication that Iran has territorial aspirations, in the Persian Gulf, outside its national borders. Similar posturing emanated from Iraq before its invasion of Kuwait during the first Gulf War.

Compliance officers at financial institutions with branches or correspondent relationships should be monitoring unfolding political developments, not because Iranian forces will be on the attack tomorrow (the US Navy uses Bahrain as a base of operations), but because money launderers and other financial criminals may choose to take advantage of the confusion to move funds or commit crimes.

Whenever there is a chaotic political or economic situation, money launderers may seek to exploit what they correctly see as compliance inattention, due to inattention, staff who are not on the job, or other factors that may cause inefficiency in the compliance process.

Therefore, watch financial transactions in or out of Bahrain for unusual funds transfers during the coming weeks.

Save the Planet: Hug Al Gore


Did YOU try to save the planet this weekend?

If you didn’t, you’re not as good as Al Gore. And in his mind, no one is… or ever could be.

Al Gore is the Superman of our times. I’m not making that up! I actually heard that from one of his worshippers of the Global Warming religion this weekend when I was learning about how our planet is in a CLIMATE CRISIS.


Because, you know, people are being charred in the street by the sun’s rays.

And all of this would stop of course if you would just change out your light bulbs with those mercury-filled ones. Oh, and do what ELF (Earth Liberation Front) would do… set an SUV on fire.

Come on people. That’s all Al Gore is asking. The planet needs love.

Video for Darfur - Send peacekeepers NOW!

Please listen to this video. It says in a few seconds what I have been saying for years. There is only one difference. I am not asking you for anything other than a phone call (Toll free: 866-340-9281). I will never ask you for a dime or a penny. They do not ask for any money in this video for which I am grateful. However, when you go to their site, they will.

They do not have a bad site. You should visit it just to educate yourself. BTW, it has been 400,000 killed for a couple of years now. Do ya think the number ought to be higher? I do.

The Darfurians have no voice other than yours. Please consider abolishing slavery and Jihadist genocide. If you have any questions, please contact me. I will gladly answer any questions to the best of my ability. Thank you for your time to read this. It would mean a lot more to me if you would raise your voice...politely! :)

Finally, 3 convicted of war crimes in Sierra Leone

Cross-posted at Rosemary's Thoughts.

Source: CNN.

I have been waiting for many years to hear this news, and they still have not convicted Charles Taylor, ex-President of Liberia. Does anyone remember how long it took for them convict Milosevic? That's right. They never did. He died after 4 years - at least - of waiting for them to convict him or let him go. (And they have a problem with Gitmo? HA!)
FREETOWN, Sierra Leone (AP) -- A U.N.-backed court trying those accused of bearing greatest responsibility for the brutality of Sierra Leone's civil war issued its first verdicts Wednesday, convicting three former leaders of a junta that had terrorized the country during a brief reign.

The court found the three defendants guilty of 11 of 14 charges, including terrorism, using child soldiers, enslavement, rape and murder. [Continue reading.]
The crimes they were NOT convicted of were the crimes against the children. There were no sexually charged crimes that these scums were convicted of for having committed.

I have mixed feelings about this. I'm very glad these terrorists were FINALLY convicted. This lets the other people know that when you enslave children and force them to take up arms, you will be found guilty of war crimes. (Except in the Middle East, I suppose.) This trial has set that precedent. On the other hand, if you only rape these children, then what? That doesn't matter? That is very disheartening.

Charles Taylor's trial began in the ICC (International Criminal Court) a month ago. I guess we have at least 10 years before we get a verdict out of there. That is, if he lives that long...

Americans, Wake Up!

Cross-posted at Rosemary's Thoughts.

It would appear that even after September 11, 2001, some people still do not understand that this is an ideologic war most of all. After all, who is doing most of the bombing of innocents and most of the blaming? I AM TALKING ABOUT THIS CENTURY. Good God.

Maybe I should let someone else speak for a moment.
How many more terror plots will we unravel before one slips through the net and is carried out again domestically? N.Y. City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said after the announcement of the arrests on Face the Nation, “Al Qaida is a philosophy’s a movement.” Well, that is a good first step away from denial. It has only taken six years to get that baby step. But it is not Al Qaeda only. I pray it will not take another 6 years for Americans to comprehend that the philosophical problem is political Islam. The President’s lack of clarity and leadership in naming the ideology of our enemy, the inconsistency of Islamism with American pluralism, and the primary responsibility of Muslims not only to counter terror but to defeat political Islam will continue to give American Islamists the cover they need to grow under his watch with the stamp of approval of the Bush administration. Until we are willing to unravel the ideology which facilitates and apologizes for terror, we are ‘stuck in the mud.’

On June 2, 2007, right after the announcement of the JFK Plot arrests, U.S. Attorney, Roslynn Mauskopf read a statement stating,
    “the defendants are charged with conspiring to bomb one of the busiest airports in the United States, located in the one of the most densely populated areas in the northeast…had the plot been carried out, it could have resulted in unfathomable damage, deaths, and destruction.”
This last time the Islamists were driven by a hate for the Kennedy name, but it derives from the same hate for America which is a common manifestation of global Islamism. In the daily practice of medicine, it would be malpractice to have a disease smolder with such a predictable recurrence of acutely possibly fatal exacerbations over a prolonged period of time while a physician only treated the symptoms and ignored the primary cause—political Islam. That is, except in the case of the terminal hospice patient. An unending series of plots across the globe against liberal democracies is our long war against an ideology. That ideology is not terror. It is political Islam.
Would you believe him if he were a Christian? A Jew? How about a Hindu?
Mr. President, as a devout Muslim, I can tell you that the only way the United States can make progress in this war is to have your administration give anti-Islamist Muslims acknowledgement for the centrality of their ideas in this war of ideologies. We can defeat political Islam only if we engage it and marginalize Islamists while positively engaging spiritual Islam. It is time for the administration to set the parameters defining the ideology we are fighting and be critical of organizations which facilitate it. The words of encouragement and admonition to Muslim organizations to lead the charge against radicalism are too vague. The reality is that the priorities, ideologies, and minority politics of the current agenda of the Islamic organizations the administration has courted and which attended last Wednesday’s press conference are far from being on the right page in this conflict.
Yes, he is a Muslim who has been speaking out against these Islamists for years, but who has heard him? Who will give him the time of day? The press?
The informants and so many others have stepped up in connection with other foiled plots despite the pressures against them from Islamists and the MSM. MSM often feed into conspiracy theories about informants, by legitimizing the victimization of Muslims for being “coerced” as informants. The Denver Post made just such a claim as recently as May 18, 2007. Their report claimed that, “Arab-Americans and Muslims are concerned about FBI efforts to recruit them as informants and other tactics designed to prevent terrorism.” This story was, to no one’s surprise, picked up and widely distributed by the Islamist organizations, e.g. CAIR.
And you wonder why CAIR is prevelant with only 1700 members? America had better wake up to real and true threat that we are all facing. If you would like to read his entire article, you will find it here. You may also reach him at his site: American Islamic Forum for Democracy. If you keep up with his writings and read his site often, you may learn a lot more than what the establiment is telling you.

Before I end this post, I just want England and Scotland to know that I have not forgotten them, and they are in my prayers. I am gathering 'news' to try to determine what is really happening over there. I thank God, my Lord in Christ, that everyone is okay...this time. America, WAKE UP!

I have spent most of yesterday and all night getting Spybot Search and Destroy (just hit next when the Wizard tells you to go back because something is not complete--for the free version) and Ad Aware (also free), because Norton did not catch the viruses that infected my computer. I am so sorry to put you through this, but it is better that I tell you now than to have you infecting others. That is, if you are infected.

I became suspicious when I went to sign in at one of the private sites where I write. I typed the first letter of my ID, and there was my whole address book! I got into a heated arguement with the administrator of that site for stealing my info, and he gently pointed me to the possibility that I may be infected. I was sure I was not, because I have Norton. YEAH, RIGHT.

It will take about an hour each for them to scan your computer (if this is your first time), but it is worth it. I do recommend that you read the tutorial for Spybot. Again, I am so very sorry. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me. Have a day. (I know I left out the 'nice' this time. I do not think this is nice.)
