“Congress passed the law in 2007, to retroactively give individuals more protection from being prosecuted for reporting suspicious activities that could lead to acts of terrorism.”
In layman’s terms, if you or I report suspicious activity to the authorities and it turns out to be, oh let’s say….. an innocent act of muslim youth preparing their own homemade fireworks, we cannot be sued. We acted without malice.
Our only hope is when the facts are placed in front of a jury, those 12 people will recall how they felt that day when our nation came under attack. No, not from these men, but their coreligionist, and for them to be so oblivious to airline passenger’s sensitivity is insulting and offensive. I’m a nervous wreck every time I board a plane and believe me, my jihadi radar is on high alert.
The angry American backlash that never transpired after 9/11, was a great disappointment to groups like CAIR, MSA and ISNA. I was living in Cleveland at the time and the only backlash to occur was some bonehead who got drunk and drove his Mustang through the mosque doors in Parma. The same mosque that was founded by the doctor who delivered my son.
We’re a civilized people and yes we were hurting. But random attacks on muslims in this country just-didn’t-happen on the scale the race peddlers had predicted and secretly hoped.
Tolerance and sensitivity is a two way street and this tactic of donning the cloak of victimhood at the drop of a hat is getting old. And hopefully it’s gonna backfire on them if the jury delivers a not guilty verdict.

Initially the movie was in limited release, in only a dozen or so theaters, across the country. I’d read the book upon its publication years before 9/11 and before islam was even noticed in America. Blame it on my Jewish background.
The movie is 2 hours long and could have been made into a mini-series. Some information was left out, I believe because of time, but never deviated from the written word. The history of the journalist and a few more details regarding Soraya could have been added and wasn’t noticed if you didn’t read the book. Only a few conversations are in English so you have to read the subtitles.
I wasn’t the only one blowing their nose and unfolding popcorn napkins to dry their eyes. This is a powerful, insightful movie showing one of dangers that the Jimmah Carter administration helped to reinstall in Iran. If you have the opportunity to see this movie, please do. You won’t be disappointed.

How were they able to do this you ask….well, in all honesty they didn’t, at least not with facts. The tactic employed was half-truths, misquotes and pressure.
Enter Robert Spencer. According to CAIR Robert Spencer is “one of the nation’s leading Islam-bashers”. Spencer has been the target of many a whine-o-gram action alert and CAIR incitement watch. This time was not different, all CAIR needed to do was twist some statements and heavily rely on the dhimmi-factor. And like good little kuffar the ALA caved and canceled the event.
From the email; “We thank all those who stood up for tolerance and mutual understanding to challenge Robert Spencer’s Islamophobic views,” said CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab, who had written to the ALA questioning why an anti-Islam bigot was invited to a panel on dispelling stereotypes about Islam.
“Because stereotyping of Islam is such an important issue, we hope a future panel on this topic can be arranged with credible scholars and representatives of the American Muslim community,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. "We strongly support open and honest discussion of difficult issues, but Mr. Spencer's agenda-driven polemics promote the very stereotypes that the ALA event sought to dispel."
It’s interesting to note that CAIR “would seek to work with the ALA to schedule a future event on the same topic as the canceled panel discussion” and then pimped their share the koran program in the same whine-o-gram.
Want the truth?
Robert Spencer has the weeklong breakdown of this assault to silence free speech (and this push toward dhimmitude) at Jihad Watch.

On a park bench, an old man was sittin' there.
I said, "Your old court house is kinda run down,
He said, "Naw, it'll do for our little town".
I said, "Your old flag pole is leaned a little bit,
And that's a ragged old flag you got hangin' on it".
He said, "Have a seat", and I sat down,
"Is this the first time you've been to our little town"
I said, "I think it is"
He said "I don't like to brag, but we're kinda proud of
That Ragged Old Flag
When Washington took it across the Delaware.
and It got powder burned the night Francis Scott Key sat watching it,
writing "Say Can You See"
It got a rip in New Orleans, with Packingham & Jackson
tugging at its seams.and It almost fell at the Alamo beside the Texas flag,
But she waved on though.
She got cut with a sword at Chancellorsville,
And she got cut again at Shiloh Hill.
There was Robert E. Lee and Beauregard and Bragg,
And the south wind blew hard on
That Ragged Old Flag
"On Flanders Field in World War I,
She got a big hole from a Bertha Gun,
She turned blood red in World War II
She hung limp, and low, a time or two,
She was in Korea, Vietnam,
She went where she was sent
by her Uncle Sam.
She waved from our ships upon the briny foam
and now they've about quit wavin' back here at home
in her own good land here She's been abused,
She's been burned, dishonored, denied an' refused,
And the government for which she stands
Has been scandalized throughout out the land.
And she's getting thread bare, and she's wearin' thin,
But she's in good shape, for the shape she's in.
Cause she's been through the fire before
and i believe she can take a whole lot more

Georgia’s resident loon Cynthia McKinney and 20 others, from the (pro-hamas, pro-hezbollah, anti-Israel group) Free Gaza, were caught trying to enter Gaza via Israeli waters and were detained by Israeli forces. Well CAIR was quick to call for Obama to demand her release. She is after all, a former congressman.
Now this isn’t the first time the Capital police officer assaulting former congressman has had a run in (literally) with the IDF. In December McKinney was on the S.S. Dignity, and it collided with an Israeli navy craft that was part of the same blockade as she and her group claimed they were attempting to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza.
A statement from the Israeli Consulate General of Israel in Atlanta said; "Once again, former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney and her fellow travelers have taken it upon themselves to disregard their own safety... by leading a boat into restricted waters. Ms. McKinney ignored the available and legal means for the delivery of aid to the Gaza Strip and instead chose to make a reckless political stunt."
The Free Gaza movement in America (and the British movement) is an offshoot of a similar organization viva palestina (viva palestina US) and heavily supported by British anti-Zionist, George Galloway.
These anti-Semitic nuts are under a bit of fund-raising scrutiny as the ADL’s Abe Foxman begs the question in an op-ed this past Monday; Raising Funds for Gaza in the US: Crossing a Line?
Galloway is currently in the U.S. on a
three-week-long fundraising drive for Viva Palestina US and is scheduled to make
appearances in at least 12 U.S. cities, including Houston, San Diego, Chicago,
Washington, DC and New York. These fundraising events are being coordinated by
more than 20 anti-Israel and antiwar groups, as well as local Viva Palestina US
chapters that have formed, an indication of the strong support Galloway has
received. Pastors for Peace/the Interreligious Foundation for Community
Organization (IFCO), an interfaith organization based out of New York, is
serving as Viva Palestina US' fiscal sponsor, thus ensuring that donations to
the convoy will be tax deductible.
Under American law, providing
material support to designated terrorist groups, including Hamas, is a crime.
Organizers of Viva Palestina US claim on the group's Web site that the convoy
intends to comply with U.S. law and will give the money to "a reception
committee comprising hospitals, doctors and health professionals, charities and
grassroots NGOs working in Gaza." It is not verifiable that this
"committee" will function independently of the Hamas leadership in Gaza, and
Galloway -- who plans to lead the American convoy -- has already demonstrated
his willingness to directly support Hamas.
So having CAIR come out demanding Giggles get involved with her release ensures their most popular infidel supporter continues to push the CAIR agenda. (WASHINGTON, D.C., 7/1/09) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today urged President Obama to demand the release of a former member of the U.S. Congress who was detained yesterday by Israel while trying to bring humanitarian relief to Palestinians under blockade in the Gaza Strip.
Because we all know those poor gazans need
weapons humanitarian aid that's being denied by the evil Jews.
