Obama Blocks Delivery of Bunker-Busters to Israel

Just a few days ago I posted an article entitled “US “bunker-busters” Being Shipped, Is Iran the Last Stop?” The article was about US “bunker-busters” going from California to the British island of Diego Garcia. Supposedly they were to be shipped to Israel for a strike on the nuke sites of Iran. Now we get this disappointing report. By the time Obama is done, the only “friends” that we have will be our enemies.

Obama blocks delivery of bunker-busters to Israel

WASHINGTON — The United States has diverted a shipment of bunker-busters designated for Israel.

Officials said the U.S. military was ordered to divert a shipment of smart bunker-buster bombs from Israel to a military base in Diego Garcia. They said the shipment of 387 smart munitions had been slated to join pre-positioned U.S. military equipment in Israel Air Force bases.

“This was a political decision,” an official said.

In 2008, the United States approved an Israeli request for bunker-busters capable of destroying underground facilities, including Iranian nuclear weapons sites. Officials said delivery of the weapons was held up by the administration of President Barack Obama.

Since taking office, Obama has refused to approve any major Israeli requests for U.S. weapons platforms or advanced systems. Officials said this included proposed Israeli procurement of AH-64D Apache attack helicopters, refueling systems, advanced munitions and data on a stealth variant of the F-15E.

“All signs indicate that this will continue in 2010,” a congressional source familiar with the Israeli military requests said. “This is really an embargo, but nobody talks about it publicly.”

Under the plan, the U.S. military was to have stored 195 BLU-110 and 192 BLU-117 munitions in unspecified air force bases in Israel. The U.S. military uses four Israeli bases for the storage of about $400 million worth of pre-positioned equipment meant for use by either Washington or Jerusalem in any regional war.

In January 2010, the administration agreed to an Israeli request to double the amount of U.S. military stockpiles to $800 million. Officials said the bunker-busters as well as Patriot missile interceptors were included in the agreement.

The decision to divert the BLU munitions was taken amid the crisis between Israel and the United States over planned construction of Jewish homes in Jerusalem. The administration, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has warned that Washington could reduce military aid to Israel because of its construction policy.

In 2007, after its war in Lebanon, Israel requested 2,000 BLU-109 live bombs from the United States. The 2,000-pound bomb, produced by Boeing and coupled with a laser guidance kit, was designed to penetrate concrete bunkers and other underground hardened sites.

Israeli ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, was quoted as saying that his country faced its biggest crisis with the United States since 1975. A pro-Israel lobbyist said Oren was referring to the current U.S. embargo, which echoed a decision taken 35 years ago by then-President Gerald Ford after Israel’s refusal to withdraw from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Oren has since denied the remark.

Simon Cowell to Convert to Islam to Marry Girlfriend?

Here we go again, another ignorant Hollywood “star” might take the leap, and join the religion of lying, rape, and war. Cowell was born in the UK, so he must have some idea what is going on there with Islam. Maybe he will completely surrender, and get married in one of the UK’s Sharia Courts. If he converts, mark him up as a traitor to Western Civilization. Maybe he can judge American Idol by Islamic Law.

Simon Cowell to convert to Islam to marry girlfriend?
2010-03-17

Mezhgan Hussainy’s family wants music mogul Simon Cowell to convert to Islam before he marries her, says a report.

The ‘American Idol’ judge had proposed to Hussainy last week.

‘They’re very westernised, but no one in their family has ever married a non-Muslim – and they’re not willing for their youngest daughter to become the first,’ digitalspy.co.uk quoted a source as saying about Hussainy’s parents Mary and Sayed.

Hussainy’s sister-in-law Erlene Garcia was also asked to convert before marrying her brother Wahid.

According to Hussainy’s friend, ‘Mezhgan is very reluctant about asking Simon to convert…and she knows how controversial it will be.’

‘Simon might be a big deal in the UK, but there are other people in the Afghan community in Los Angeles who her parents will be more afraid of offending. It would bring shame on their family and community if Simon did not respect their beliefs,’ the friend added.

Do the beliefs of non-Muslims ever count, how about she leaves Islam for him?

President Obama Seeks to Bridge Differences with Islam

Looking for an article to post about Islam, I just found this one on Voice of America. It is so one-sided, that I just had to tear it apart. What makes this article more interesting than most, is that VOA is funded by the US Islamic ass kissing government of America. My challenge to anyone in the US government remains, I will gladly debate you anywhere, anytime and expose your Islam is a religion of peace lie. The public deserves to know the truth!

President Obama Seeks to Bridge Differences with Islam
Jerome Socolovsky | Washington 18 March 2010

US President Barack Obama has again postponed his trip to Indonesia because of pressing issues in the U.S. The trip is part of his ongoing effort to reach out to Muslims worldwide. Last year, he gave a speech in Cairo that was considered a landmark in the effort to bridge differences between Islam and the West. Many Muslims believe he should do more.

Of course they do, and they will never be happy until we cater to their every demand. Does the author of this article, even begin to realize that?

Frictions between Islam and the West often flare up – like when when a Danish newspaper published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed – or when Muslim girls in Europe went to school wearing veils, or new minarets in Switzerland were banned.

If Muslims cannot deal with freedom of speech, and expression that is their problem. The West should not change a thing to suit a backwards ideology like Islam. If Muslims do not like the rules of the West, they should move to an Islamic country. We owe them nothing.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have also complicated America’s relationship with the Islamic world.

Last year, President Obama went to Cairo hoping to change that. He extended the traditional Muslim greeting, and said while he is a Christian, his father’s family includes generations of Muslims. “I’ve come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning, between the United States and Muslims around the world,” he said.

The real translation of this is that Obama wants us to cater to Islam, and respect the religion of war.

He declared that the U.S. is not at war with Islam, but is against violent extremists who exploit the tensions between Islam and the West.

Herein lies the problem, because Islam is at war with us. Those “violent extremists” are only following the Islamic scriptures.

Those tensions go all the way back to the Crusades – when Christian armies invaded the Holy Land.

The Crusades were the result of 100′s of years of Muslim aggression, and if they did not happen, we would all be living under Islamic rule now.

Since the September 11 attacks, attempts to bridge the differences between the two civilizations have acquired a new urgency.

Recently, Sunni and Shi’ite clerics met with Christian counterparts at the National Cathedral in Washington.

So what? Interfaith dialogue has been going on for centuries, and now the problem is in our backyard. The talks are just a stall tactic by Muslims, as their agenda of taking over the world moves forward. How can we believe anything that they say anyway? As their religion encourages them to lie.

Professor Ahmad El Tayeb of Al Azhar University in Cairo said the President’s speech there was a landmark. “I was there, and I admired that speech very much. But we are still waiting to see practical results,” he said.

He says the U.S. shouldn’t side with Israel or fight wars in Muslim countries.

Of course not, and their hatred of Jews stems from Islam itself.

Book 041, Number 6985:

Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: 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; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.

As for not fighting in Islamic countries, in other words Muslim countries should be allowed to harbor terrorist organizations. Apparently the author of this article, has no problem with this endless list of demands.

Fouad Ajami heads the Middle East Studies program at the School of Advanced International Studies in Washington. “I think in many ways some of the issues Mr. Obama raised were legitimate ones. But he overpromised, he overpromised, and eventually he was going to come down to earth,” he said.

Ajami says there’s only so much an American president can do. He says the conflict is actually within Islam. “In fact what has happened over the last generation is that Islam has been hijacked for all practical purposes by the most extreme elements in the Muslim world. And you have these radical preachers in Yemen, you have these radical preachers in south Asia, you have these radical preachers in Pakistan. And I think that the Muslims finally awakened to the fact that their faith is in danger, that their faith has become in many ways synonymous with radicalism,” he said.

Mohammad himself was a terrorist.

Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand.” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

So did Mohammad hijack the religion that he started? Come on Ajami, you are going to have a lot better than the “hijacked” con.

The president’s task is not easy. At home, critics accuse him of apologizing for America.

Still, Mr. Obama holds up his own country as a place where people of all religions can thrive. “And that includes nearly 7 million American Muslims in our country today who, by the way, enjoy incomes and educational levels that are higher than the American average,” he said.

He is apologizing for America, and we are sick of it. Like I said earlier, we do not owe Muslims a thing. Their education levels do not mean that they do not want Islam to dominate America. It only makes them more dangerous.

Several hundred Muslims worship every Friday at the Islamic Cultural Center in Washington, D.C.

Some are diplomats from nearby embassies. But many are citizens who have lived in America for decades. They still believe in Mr. Obama’s message. “People think he’s going to do the thing in a snap, he cannot do that,” said Mohamed Adje, a worshiper.

Another worshiper, Mohammed Abdul Meguid Saleh, added “No way can push everything fast. Everything is going to be okay. It’s not easy, it take time to get everything together.”

When the president travels to Indonesia, he’ll have another opportunity to reach out to the Muslim world. It’s a place that is personal for him – he lived there as a child. So at the very least, he can once again present himself as a symbol of hope for reconciliation between Islam and the West.

If you noticed, the author does not care that nothing has been asked of the Islamic world. He is ready to drop to his knees in submission, I will not! Will you?

Welcome to Shariah Board of America

Welcome to Shariah Board of America

Shariah Board of America cordially invites you to attend a Symposium on Seeratun Nabi (PBUH) on Friday, March 19, 2010.

Please note that the following programmes are being held at Shariah Board by
Hazrat Mufti Naval-ur-Rahman. Separate sitting arrangement for women is available. You are all requested to participate.

Here are some of the recent questions that have been submitted to the board.

Question_ID 16265:
Question_Text: I just converted to Islam in May of 2009, I was attending a private college for an Associates degree. When I learned that we’re not supposed to be involved in interest-bearing loans I dropped out b/c there was no other funding for me besides that. I only had 2 more quarters to go. I intended to just enroll at the community college to finish but the classes seem to always be full. I’m just wondering if riba is always bad, or if there are exceptions, such as paying for college, buying a house, or a car, etc.? Thank you.

Answer:
It is not permissible to be involved in an interest-bearing loan of any type. Infact, there is stern warning for a person involved in interest. Try to apply for the classes at the community college early so you can get a place before it becomes full. Also, search for grants and scholarships for which you may be eligible.

Question_ID 16257:
Question_Text: ASSALAM-O-ALAIKUM Respected Mufti Sahab! I have a very serious problem to discuss with you.My husband divorced me thrice (verbally) in one sitting just 4 months back.I am a working lady.I am very ashamed that I did not follow the rules of iddah strictly as prescribed by the Shariah. Though I did not indulge in any immoral and bad activity nor I contracted marriage with anybody during the whole period of iddah but one mistake I commited is that I couldn’t confine myself within the boundaries of my house and went outside during my iddah due to my job and some other domestic reasons for which I am feeling very guilty today as I have gone through some Islamic material (after the completion of my Iddah) about the rules of Iddah and found myself deviating the rules as prescribed by Islam.I repent and admit my sin and Pray to ALLAH to forgive me. The period of iddah is over.Now what is the way to correct the past mistake?I again say that i am very much ashamed of my act of not following the rules of iddah completely.But when my eyes opened , the time was over.I did tauba full heartedly and asked ALLAH for forgiveness.But my heart is very heavy due to this sin.I want to ask what is the kafara of this mistake?Should I obseve the iddah again following shariah’s rules or the time is over as I passed the period of iddah.One thing more,keeping in view the whole scenario, can I marry someone else?Is it permissible as my iddah has been passed contradictory to the rules of shariah?Will my second marriage be Halal islamically.Please guide me and also pray for me.

For those that do not know what iddah is.
Iddah:
In Islam, iddah or iddat (Arabic: العدة‎; period of waiting) is the period a woman must observe after the death of her spouse or after a divorce, during which she may not marry another man.[1] The period, three months after a divorce and four months and ten days after the death of a spouse, is calculated on the number of menses that a woman has. Iddah was intended to ensure that the male parent of any offspring produced after the cessation of a nikah would be known.

Answer:
It was incorrect for you to not adhere to the correct manner of observing the iddah. However, if three menstruation cycles have elapsed from the time the talaq was issued, then your iddah is over. Your second marriage will be valid Islamically.

Question_ID 16281:
Question_Text: Is it allowed for younger people to bow and do salaam to elders

The younger people should not bow and say salam.
