The recent cancellation by the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles of Pamela Geller's speech to the Zionist Organization of America should serve as a wake up call for the rest of the Jewish Community. The cancellation came at the request and pressure from the usual Muslim Brotherhood front groups such as CAIR and the Muslim Public Affairs Council. For fear of being labeled Islamophobic and right wing extremists, the Federation gave up a basic Jewish and American ideal......the right to speak freely.
During World War II, the Judenrat (Jewish Councils) were established by the Nazis to facilitate the transfer of Jews to concentration camps and to aid with the confiscation of Jewish property. The Jews who served on those councils believed that their appeasement would be collectively beneficial for Jews and that they themselves would be spared. The Nazis murdered them along with their fellow Jews, and the ones who survived were labeled as "kapos" by Jewish survivors. It was a derogatory term reserved for those who aided and abetted the annihilation of Jews.
After the war, there were incidences of retribution by survivors for those identified kapos for the sins they committed against their fellow Jews. Today's capitulation to the dictates of the Muslim Brotherhood (a terrorist organization that seeks the annihilation of Jews) by the Jewish Federation is reminiscent of the actions of the Judenrat who too aided the annihilators of Jews. Coupled with the Federation's sponsorship of the Olive Tree Initiative, which under the guise of "peace" sends college age Jewish American youth to meet with Hamas representatives in the Middle East, their actions should leave no doubt that the Jewish Federation is no longer representing Jewish or American interests.
Pamela Geller's speech placed the root cause of the Middle East conflict on the Islamic doctrine of Jew hatred which permeates all Muslim countries. It is found in numerous passages throughout the Quran and Hadith (collection of Mohammad's words). While Islam is recognized and designated as a religion by the United States, only about 20% of Islamic doctrine has a religious component. The vast majority of Islamic doctrine is political, legal, and supremacist. Through numerous passages, Muslims are commanded to wage war upon the unbelievers. Passages such as the one below are rampant throughout Quranic doctrine.
"The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him." (Sahih Muslim, 41:6985; see also 41:6981-84 and Sahih Bukhari, 4:52:176,177 and 4:56:791)
Mohammad: "I have been ordered to wage war against mankind until they accept that there is no god but Allah and that they believe that I am His prophet and accept all revelations spoken through me. When they do these things I will protect their lives and property unless otherwise justified by Sharia, in which case their fate lies in Allah's hands." (Muslim 001, 0031)
Americans must be made aware of these passages and the numerous other commandments that seek our destruction; yet, because of the Muslim Brotherhood's influence in this country, there has been a blanket of silence by our mainstream media, academia, and religious leaders of all faiths. Under the guise of religious tolerance, the American public is nearly clueless of the stealth Jihad being waged here on our shores by an enemy that uses our laws and the climate of political correctness against us. Without the truth about Islam, yes Islam....not radical Islam since there is only one Islam, we cannot wage a viable defense.
Years of multi-cultural indoctrination have provided the fertile ground necessary for this civilizational jihad from within. We have been brainwashed to believe that all cultures are equal; thus, criticism of Islam is quickly labeled as "Islamophobia", and those like Geller who have the courage to risk reputation and life by ringing the alarm about Islamic doctrine are branded as hate-mongers and right wing bigots. It is a plan well orchestrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, as outlined in a document found during an FBI raid on a house in Virginia in the 1990's, and presented as evidence during the 2007 Holy Land Foundation trial in Texas, where all of the defendants were found guilty of funneling millions of dollars to Hamas.
Sharia law designated criticism of Islam or Mohammad as a crime punishable by death. The United Nations led by the Organization of Islamic Conference is urging a global adoption of a resolution that forbids criticism of Islam under the guise of hate speech. Our own State Department under Hillary Clinton seeks to adopt such a policy even though it conflicts with our right to free speech as guaranteed by our Constitutional First Amendment. Should Barrack Hussein Obama win re-election, his next terms will most likely guarantee such an adoption.
There is demonstrable evidence which supports the belief that the Muslim Brotherhood is alive and well here in the United States.
"There is hundreds [sic] of examples of departments and agencies that meet with CAIR on a range of issues," George Selim, the White House's new director for community partnerships, told The Daily Caller June 7.
We can observe the recent acts by the White House, State Department, FBI, Pentagon, and the Justice Department as evidence of the power they have accumulated here at home, and particularly within our current administration. It is incumbent for Americans to know the true nature of Islam and to wage a counter campaign before it is too late. We can begin by exposing Islam for the supremacist triumphant doctrine that it is and demand that our leaders take action. Judenrats like the Jewish Federation also need to be exposed and their funding must cease. Their capitulation to the Muslim Brotherhood is a despicable and cowardly act. As Thomas Mann once said, "Tolerance in the face of evil is a crime."
