Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Treachery & Mopery: Shrub Blossoms at the ICW


Remarks at the rededication of the Islamic Center of Washington.
THE PRESIDENT: Imam, thank you very much. Thank you for inviting me. I bring my personal respect to you, sir. And I appreciate your friendship. I do want to thank the governors of the Islamic Center. I welcome the Ambassadors. Thank you all for coming. I appreciate other distinguished guests who are here. It is an honor to join you at this re dedication ceremony.

As the Imam mentioned, half a century has passed since one of our great leaders welcomed the Islamic Center into our nation’s family of faith. Dedicating this site, President Dwight D. Eisenhower offered America’s hand in friendship to Muslims around the world. He asked that together we commit ourselves “to peaceful progress of all men under one God.”

Today we gather, with friendship and respect, to reaffirm that pledge — and to renew our determination to stand together in the pursuit of freedom and peace.1 We come to express our appreciation for a faith that has enriched civilization for centuries.2 We come in celebration of America’s diversity of faith3 and our unity as free people4. And we hold in our hearts the ancient wisdom of the great Muslim poet, Rumi: “The lamps are different, but the light is the same.”5

Moments like this dedication help clarify who Americans are as a people, and what we wish for the world. We live in a time when there are questions about America and her intentions. For those who seek a true understanding of our country, they need to look no farther than here. This Muslim center sits quietly down the road from a synagogue, a Lutheran church, a Catholic parish, a Greek Orthodox chapel, a Buddhist temple — each with faithful followers who practice their deeply held beliefs and live side by side in peace.6

This is what freedom offers: societies where people can live and worship as they choose without intimidation, without suspicion, without a knock on the door from the secret police. The freedom of religion is the very first protection offered in America’s Bill of Rights. It is a precious freedom. It is a basic compact under which people of faith agree not to impose their spiritual vision on others, and in return to practice their own beliefs as they see fit. This is the promise of our Constitution, and the calling of our conscience, and a source of our strength.7

The freedom to worship is so central to America’s character that we tend to take it personally when that freedom is denied to others. Our country was a leading voice on behalf of the Jewish refusniks in the Soviet Union. Americans joined in common cause with Catholics and Protestants who prayed in secret behind an Iron Curtain. America has stood with Muslims seeking to freely practice their beliefs in places such as Burma and China.8

To underscore America’s respect for the Muslim faith here at home,9 I came to this Center six days after the 9/11 attacks to denounce incidents of prejudice against Muslim Americans. (Applause.) Today I am announcing a new initiative that will improve mutual understanding and cooperation between America and people in predominately Muslim countries.

I will appoint a special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference. This is the first time a President has made such an appointment to the OIC. (Applause.) Our special envoy will listen to and learn from representatives from Muslim states and will share with them America’s views and values. This is an opportunity for Americans to demonstrate to Muslim communities our interest in respectful dialogue and continued friendship.10

We have seen that friendship reflected in the outpouring of support Americans have extended to Muslim communities across the globe during times of war and natural disaster. Americans came to the aid of the victims of devastating earthquakes in Pakistan and Iran, and responded with urgency and compassion to the wreckage of the tsunami in Indonesia and Malaysia. Our country defended Muslims in Bosnia and Kosovo after the breakup of Yugoslavia. (Applause.)11 Today we are rallying the world to confront genocide in Sudan.12 Americans of all beliefs have undertaken these efforts out of compassion, conviction, and conscience.

The greatest challenge facing people of conscience is to help the forces of moderation win the great struggle against extremism that is now playing out across the broader Middle East. We’ve seen the expansion of the concept of religious freedom and individual rights in every region of the world — except one. In the Middle East, we have seen instead the rise of a group of extremists who seek to use religion as a path to power and a means of domination.13

These self-appointed vanguard — this self-appointed vanguard presumes to speak for Muslims. They do not. They call all Muslims who do not believe in their harsh and hateful ideology “infidels” and “betrayers” of the true Muslim faith. This enemy falsely claims that America is at war with Muslims and the Muslim faith, when in fact it is these radicals who are Islam’s true enemy. (Applause.)14

They have staged spectacular attacks on Muslim holy sites to divide Muslims and make them fight one another. The majority of the victims of their acts of terror are Muslims. In Afghanistan, they have targeted teachers for beatings and murder. In Iraq, they killed a young boy, and then booby-trapped his body so it would explode when his family came to retrieve him. They put children in the backseat of a car so they could pass a security checkpoint, and then blew up the car with the children still inside. These enemies bombed a wedding reception in Amman, Jordan, a housing complex in Saudi Arabia, a hotel in Jakarta. They claim to undertake these acts of butchery and mayhem in the name of Allah. Yet this enemy is not the true face of Islam, this enemy is the face of hatred.15

Men and women of conscience have a duty to speak out and condemn this murderous movement before it finds its path to power.16 We must help millions of Muslims as they rescue a proud and historic religion from murderers and beheaders who seek to soil the name of Islam.17 And in this effort, moderate Muslim leaders have the most powerful and influential voice. We admire and thank those Muslims who have denounced what the Secretary General of the OIC called “radical fringe elements who pretend that they act in the name of Islam.” We must encourage more Muslim leaders to add their voices, to speak out against radical extremists who infiltrate mosques, to denounce organizations that use the veneer of Islamic belief to support and fund acts of violence, and to reach out to young Muslims — even in our country and elsewhere in the free world — who believe suicide bombing may some day be justified.18

We need to rally the voices of Muslims who can speak most directly to millions in the Arab world left behind in the global movement toward prosperity and freedom. For decades the free world abandoned Muslims in the Middle East to tyrants, and terrorists, and hopelessness. This was done in the interests of stability and peace, but instead the approach brought neither. The Middle East became an incubator for terrorism and despair, and the result was an increase in Muslims’ hostility to the West. I have invested the heart of my presidency in helping Muslims fight terrorism, and claim their liberty, and find their own unique paths to prosperity and peace.19

The efforts underway in Afghanistan and Iraq are central in this struggle, but that struggle is not going to end the threats; it’s not going to end there.20 We believe the ultimate success of Afghans and Iraqis will inspire others who want to live in freedom, as well.21 We will work toward a day when a democratic Palestine lives side by side with Israel in peace.22 (Applause.) We have already seen stirrings of a democratic future in other parts of the Middle East, though it will take time for liberty to flower. A democratic future is not a plan imposed by Western nations, it is a future that the people of the region will seize for themselves.23 A future of freedom is the dream and the desire of every loving heart.24

We know this because of the 8 million people who braved threats and intimidation to vote in Afghanistan. We know this because of the nearly 12 million people who cast ballots in free elections in Iraq. And we know this because the world watched as the citizens of Lebanon raised the banner of the Cedar Revolution, drove out their Syrian occupiers, and chose new leaders under free elections. Even now the hope for freedom is felt in some dark corners in the Middle East — whispering in living rooms, and coffee houses, and in classrooms. Millions seek a path to the future where they can say what they think, travel where they wish, and worship as they choose. They plead in silence for their liberty — and they hope someone, somewhere will answer.25

So today, in this place of free worship, in the heart of a free nation, we say to those who yearn for freedom from Damascus to Tehran: You are not bound forever by your misery. You plead in silence no longer. The free world hears you. You are not alone. America offers you its hand in friendship. We work for the day when we can welcome you into the family of free nations. We pray that you and your children may one day know freedom in all things, including the freedom to love and to worship the Almighty God.26

May God bless you.


  1. Islam does not pursue peace; it pursues world domination through Jihad. Read this; print & distribute it: Is Islam Peaceful?
  2. The only enriching Islam did was of Muhammad & his Caliphs with booty and the soil with blood & bodies! See Bukhari3.37.495  and 4.52.220.
  3. Islam does not celebrate diversity; it is intolerant.  It imposes a sub human state of subjugation upon conquered Jews & Christians.
  4. Muslims in Dar Ul-Harb self-segregate. Thats why they collect in European cities such as Malmo, where police dare not enter.  They are creating and taking over enclaves as a progression toward total conquest.
  5. How do you square the Golden Rule with “kill them wherever you find them” & “fight them until” they pay extortion in a state of subjection?
  6. Side by side in peace … only until the number of Muslims is sufficient to support attacks against their neighbors, as in Aceh and the suburbs of Paris.
  7. Freedom of religion is not a part of Islam. Islam demands that only Allah be worshiped in the entire world.  Islam must be made dominant.
  8. Practicing Islamic beliefs means waging war against all who refuse to submit to Islam.  Only a damn fool traitor stands with Islam!!!
  9. None but an ignoramus or a damn fool respects Islam!  Islam is a predatory institution designed to enrich and empower Muhammad through the professional practice of piracy.  Read and distribute this: The Roots of Islamic terrorism.
  10. Sheer idiocy!!! The OIC supports HAMAS & Hizbollah.  It seeks global world conquest as prescribed in the Qur’an.  Respectful dialogue with Islam is an impossibility; Islam has no respect. It is supremacist, racist intolerant and aggressively violent.
  11. President Clinton supported Islamic aggressors against Christian defenders. He is a traitor to western civilization!
  12. The ongoing genocide in Darfur is Islamic. in compliance with Muhammad’s preaching and practice.
  13. Islam was created as a means to acquire power and domination.  It is a war machine, not a religion. There are no extremists; only believing, faithful Muslims obeying Allah and emulating Muhammad.
  14. Islam is the enemy of all mankind; has declared war and is prosecuting it. Most Muslims are descendants of people who were conquered and converted at sword point.
  15. The true face of Islam is what Allah commanded and Muhammad exemplified: perpetual war on all mankind!!! Wake up!!! Wise up!!! Inform yourself!!! Quit believing the lies told by damn fools and traitors!!!!!  Begin by reading the Know Thine Enemy series. Be sure to follow and carefully read the links therein contained.
  16. The murderous movement is Islam, Muhammad’s path to power.  The dichotomy : moderate || extreme Islam is false and malicious. Islam is violent and genocidal; was so from its foundation and will always remain so.
  17. Islam has not been hijacked!!! Read  and distribute this: Has Islam Been Hijacked?  Muhammad ordered the murder of poets who criticized him.  See Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4435.  
  18. What in Hell is moderate about this??:
    • 9:29 USC Fahd Declaration of perpetual war against “people of the book”. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
    • 8:67
      USC Fahd
      Genocide is prerequisite to ransoming POW. It is not for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
    • B1.8.387
      USC
      Order to fight: confirms 9:28 & 8:39; denies dignity & equality of Kuffar/Dhimmis. Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
      Narrated Anas bin Malik:
      Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.’ And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah.” Narrated Maimun ibn Siyah that he asked Anas bin Malik, “O Abu Hamza! What makes the life and property of a person sacred?” He replied, “Whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’, faces our Qibla during the prayers, prays like us and eats our slaughtered animal, then he is a Muslim, and has got the same rights and obligations as other Muslims have.”
  19. Muslims can only fight terrorism and claim their liberty by mass apostasy: casting off Allah’s yoke of slavery.  Islam and liberty can not coexist because Islam is slavery.
  20. If we were victorious in Afghanistan & Iraq– if liberal democratic governments were established, they could not be maintained because Islam does not allow democracy. Allah rules.  His rule may not be questioned.  Only the complete extinction of Islam can achieve the goal of liberating the region and rendering it peaceful.
  21. Only a damn fool would believe that. First, democracy will never be successful in the presence of Islam.  We lost the battle when we allowed Sharia to be the source of law in their constitutions!  We succeeded in Germany & Japan because we imposed  new constitutions on them. Allowing Afghanistan & Iraq to retain Islam was a fatal blunder, guaranteeing failure.  Muslims are Allah’s slaves. They can only obtain freedom by removing Allah’s yoke.
  22. Only an ignorant damn fool expects Islam to coexist with Israel!  Israel, by existing on land once conquered by Islam, proves Allah to be an impotent idol.  In 8:65, he promised a 10:1 kill ratio. In 1948, the Muslims lost in spite of overwhelming superiority in manpower and hardware. There is absolutely no possibility of Islam ever tolerating Israel’s existence.  Israel will never obtain peace and security while Islam exists. Neither will we.
  23. Not while they are Muslims!  It will never happen.
  24. Muslims have sold their lives and property to Allah in return for admission to Paradise. Allah’s part of the bargain: Muslims fight and kill for him.  This is expressly stated in 9:111. Read it and curse Islam, if you have a soul.
  25. The only answer is to show them, dramatically, the true nature of Allah, Islam & Muhammad:  a demon, a murder cult and a murdering, pedophile, lecher and pirate respectively. Document the Qur’an & Sunnah on film and give it global distribution.  Let them see the rape of Safia, the murder of her husband, the genocide of the Banu Qurayzah,  the marriage to Aisha at age 6 and the marriage to his daughter in law. Sign and promote this on line petition which urges Mel Gibson to make and distribute the film: Expose Islam On Film.
  26. They can only know that freedom as ex-Muslims. If they don’t attain it, we will lose our lives and liberties.

Myth vs Fact


Myth Fact
Islam: Religion of peace.  3:139-141 So do not become weak (against your enemy), nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers.  If a wound (and killing) has touched you, be sure a similar wound (and killing) has touched the others. And so are the days (good and not so good), We give to men by turns, that Allâh may test those who believe, and that He may take martyrs from among you. And Allâh likes not the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).  And that Allâh may test (or purify) the believers (from sins) and destroy the disbelievers.

Fix Legal Immigration First (Sen. Ben Nelson)

June 28th, 2007

I felt that the problem of illegal immigration exists side by side with the problem of legal immigration. You have to solve the problem with legal immigration, which will give you the visas and give you temporary workers, and solve the problem of securing the border and enforcing border security before you can deal with the 11-12 million people who are here illegally.

So I think it’s a two-step process. You can combine them, but you can’t solve the problem of illegal immigration first, and that’s what this bill seems to do.

A Crushing Defeat for the Immigration Bill (Sen. Jeff Sessions)

June 28th, 2007

It was a surprisingly strong defeat for this bill’s advocates, and I think it was really a crushing defeat. It exceeded my expectations, although I thought it might shift — I felt a shift in the air — but I was surprised by the strength of that surge against the bill.

‘Modest increase’ in calls crashes Senate phones – By Kelly McCormack

Many Senate office phones were down Thursday morning due to a “modest increase in call volume,” according to an e-mail from the Senate assistant sergeant at arms and the chief information officer.

Opponents of the bipartisan immigration reform bill that stalled in the Senate after a 46-53 cloture vote this morning said foes of the bill had flooded Senate offices with phone calls.

46-53, immigration bill goes down in defeat – By Klaus Marre

The comprehensive immigration reform bill that has dodged attacks from the left and right for weeks, survived “poison pill” amendments, and was once pulled from the Senate schedule failed its most important test Thursday. Passage of the legislation now appears unlikely.

The bipartisan coalition that had shepherded the measure through so many obstacles failed to get the 60 votes necessary to end debate. The final vote was 46-53.
