US Intelligence Chief to Americans That Join the Enemy, we Will Kill you

Intelligence chief acknowledges U.S. may target Americans involved in terrorism

Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair acknowledged Wednesday that government agencies may kill U.S. citizens abroad who are involved in terrorist activities if they are “taking action that threatens Americans.”

Blair told members of the House intelligence committee that he was speaking publicly about the issue to reassure Americans that intelligence agencies and the Department of Defense “follow a set of defined policy and legal procedures that are very carefully observed” in the use of lethal force against U.S. citizens.

Blair’s unusually frank remarks come as the issue of targeting Americans for lethal action has attracted more notice. As the United States steps up its campaign against suspected terrorists overseas, it has become more apparent that some extremists may be U.S. citizens.

The most prominent case to date is that of a U.S.-born cleric, Anwar al-Aulaqi, who lives in Yemen and has been linked to the Army major who allegedly shot and killed 13people at Fort Hood, Tex., in November, and to the Nigerian accused of attempting to bomb a Northwest Airlines plane on Christmas Day.

Aulaqi is a member of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, an affiliate of the main al-Qaeda organization, and has been linked to the Fort Hood shooter as well as the Nigerian. He was thought to be meeting with regional al-Qaeda leaders at a compound in Yemen targeted by a Dec. 24 strike. He was not said to be the focus of the strike, and he was not killed. But U.S. officials said at the time that they thought he might have been killed.

“I just don’t want Americans who are watching this to think that we are careless about endangering — in fact, we’re not careless about endangering American lives as we try to carry out the policies to protect most of the country,” Blair said at the annual threat briefing before the panel. He did not specifically refer to the targeting of Aulaqi.

In response to questions from Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-Mich.), the panel’s ranking Republican, Blair said: “We take direct action against terrorists in the intelligence community. If that direct action, we think that direct action will involve killing an American, we get specific permission to do that.”

Hoekstra pressed for clarification of the policy, especially its threshold for targeting Americans for lethal action.

“The concern that I have today is that I’m not sure that . . . [it is] very well understood as to what you and the people in your organization can do when it comes to Americans who have joined the enemy,” Hoekstra told Blair.

The director of national intelligence said the factors that “primarily” weigh on the decision to target an American include “whether that American is involved in a group that is trying to attack us, whether that American is a threat to other Americans.”

Vijay Kumar: Running for Congress on an Anti-Sharia Platform

For over a year I have been forced to bring plenty of bad news to readers of my site. Recently though things have been turning in our favor, and here is some more good news. This part of the job, I truly enjoy!

Those of us that follow the threat of Islam closely know that Muslims are hellbent on imposing Sharia Law on us. Here is a brave politician who has left the Left, and is running on anti-Sharia platform for the 5th District Congressional seat of Tennessee. We definitely need more like him.

An Appeal

Dear Friends,

I want to be your voice in Washington. I want to go there to represent you–your interests, your concerns, your issues–and to make sure that Congress hears you! I am doing this entirely on my own, as a real grass-roots effort, without the support of special interests. I am doing it because I care.

As I’m sure you know, political campaigns in this day and age need a lot of money to succeed, and that is why I am making this appeal to you to ask for your help to get me to Washington. In 2008, I was the first politician in the United States to run on an anti-Sharia platform.

I financed it from my own pocket, on a shoestring budget, and was blessed with almost one third of your votes in the republican primary.

To the best of my knowledge, I am the only politician in the United States with a plan to win our current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq within five years, for less than a billion dollars, and without the further loss of American lives. I am convinced it can be done.

I have clear ideas for creating jobs, and it starts with the Fair Tax. Eradicating the oppressive income tax and replacing it with a simple national sales tax will create millions of jobs in Tennessee and across this great land.

I am advocating a reform of our Immigration Laws. There must be a fundamental change in how we accept new immigrants in this country, and we must stop the damage done to our nation with illegal immigration.

I am strong believer in the sanctity of the family. I believe in adoption, not in abortion, and my wife and I have adopted two wonderful children because of that strong belief.

If these issues are as important to you as they are to me, I need your help to be your voice–not the voice of special interests–in Congress. Please contribute whatever money you can, when you can, to help me get the message out to the public, to win this election, and to carry your message to Washington.

Respectfully,
Vijay Kumar

We must oppose Sharia (Islamic) Law in the United States

Sharia (Islamic) Law is slowly permeating America. We are focused on the global “War on Terror” and are ignoring a more dangerous threat developing right within our country.

Muslims are beginning to insist that they do not have to follow our laws and customs. Some of their activists are making demands requiring that Muslims’ religious rights be put above our Constitution. The United States Constitution is based on principles, such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion, that conflict fundamentally with Islamic principles, which stifle free speech and demand that there be only one religion.

We should roundly condemn and reject Islamic reasoning that our legal system is man-made and corrupt, while Islamic Sharia law is divine law. It is not the place of immigrants to our nation to rewrite our system of laws to suit their tastes.

Sharia covers family, criminal and civil law, education, art, and the media. Demands are made that our schools only teach about Islam in the way that Muslims determine it should be taught. Demands are made that schools set aside special times for Muslim women to use the gym. Students in higher education settings are demanding foot washing and prayer-room facilities. Women refuse to uncover their faces for legal identification (as required for drivers licenses), and cab drivers refuse to carry passengers with alcohol. Banks are setting up Sharia finance for Muslims. All of this, when Christianity in this country is under siege by radical proponents of “separation of church and state.” Where is the outrage at these Muslim demands for special religious privilege? There seems to be no limit to the disregard for the American culture that allowed Muslims to settle in our country. How wonderful it would be if Christians enjoyed the same freedoms in Muslim nations as Muslims are taking advantage of in America. But they don’t and never will. Islam teaches that Christians, Jews, Hindus, and people of all other religions are inferiors, “infidels,” who should be subjected to oppression, persecution, and even death unless they convert to Islam.

Sharia law is designed to do just that, and Muslim immigrants are trying to force the United States to allow its use throughout the society and culture. It must be stopped.

All immigrants must abide by the United States Constitution and obey American laws if they wish to remain in this country. Where Sharia laws conflict with United States laws, the laws of the U. S. override those Sharia laws. Any attempts to implement Sharia should be resisted at all levels of government.

I urge all readers to please make a donation to his campaign, or at a minimum please call his office in a show of support. The contact information can be found HERE.

Brave Egyptian Christians Take a Stand Against Sharia!

Egypt Christians call for right to build churches
Wednesday, February 3, 2010

CAIRO — Egyptian activists have protested in front of parliament and called for legislation giving Christians equal rights as Muslims to build houses of worship.

The demonstrators, both Muslim and Christian, were also protesting Wednesday against the sectarian strains in the country, particularly in light of a Christmas Eve slaying of six Copts and a Muslim guard outside a church in southern Egypt.

The government has maintained that sectarian harmony reigns in Egypt and said the Jan. 6 attack had no religious dimension.

Muslims need a municipal permit to build mosques. But Copts must get their papers signed by the president.

Ten percent of Egypt’s 80 million are Copts, who complain of being denied equal citizenship rights. Clashes do occasionally erupt.

Muslim group irked by ‘Christian’ comment

LANCASTER, CA – The mayor of Lancaster, California, is being criticized for telling residents that their town is a growing Christian community and they should be proud of that.

Mayor R. Rex Parris made the remarks at the end of his annual State of the City address last week.

The Greater Los Angeles area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has denounced the comments. The chapter says it plans to file a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Justice Department. Executive director Hussam Ayloush says elected officials shouldn’t be using their public positions to impose their religious beliefs.

Mayor Parris told the Los Angeles Times that he had no such intentions and says he won’t apologize.

Lancaster is about 40 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

Please give the Mayor’s office a call of support. The contact information can be found HERE. Thanks!

Iraq to sue US and UK

I hate to see babies suffer, but it sure did not take long for the Iraqis to learn how to use our freedoms against us. Between this and the persecution of the Iraqi Christians, does anyone really think that they are an ally of ours? I don’t, they will stand with with their people and Islam over us any day. It is time to let the Iraqis fend for themselves.

On a related note, it appears that Obama and his crew will stand with them also.

Iraq to sue U.S., Britain over depleted uranium bombs
02/02/2010

Iraq’s Ministry for Human Rights will file a lawsuit against Britain and the US over their use of depleted uranium bombs in Iraq, an Iraqi minister says.

Iraq’s Minister of Human Rights, Wijdan Mikhail Salim, told Assabah newspaper that the lawsuit will be launched based on reports from the Iraqi ministries of science and the environment.

According to the reports, during the first year of the US and British invasion of Iraq, both countries had repeatedly used bombs containing depleted uranium.

According to Iraqi military experts, the US and Britain bombed the country with nearly 2,000 tonnes of depleted uranium bombs during the early years of the Iraq war.

Atomic radiation has increased the number of babies born with defects in the southern provinces of Iraq.

Iraqi doctors say they’ have been struggling to cope with the rise in the number of cancer cases —especially in cities subjected to heavy U-S and British bombardment.

The high rate of birth defects and cancer cases will move in the coming years to the central and northern provinces of Iraq since the radiation may penetrate the soil and water by air.

The ministry will seek compensation for the victims of these bombs.

India Kashmir: Muslims Enraged, 20 Hurt

From Africa, to America, to Europe, to the Far East, to the Middle East, we see the threat of Islam getting worse, and Muslims causing major problems for non-Muslims. This is a worldwide war, and non-Muslims need to stop bickering and unite against this common enemy, before it is too late.

20 hurt in Indian Kashmir clashes over boy’s death

2010-02-01 16:30:00

Twenty people were hurt Monday in Indian Kashmir as police fired shots in the air and used tear-gas to disperse hundreds of Muslims enraged over the death of a boy, police said.

Protesters chanting “we want freedom” and “blood for blood” blocked key roads in the Kashmiri summer capital of Srinagar after the 14-year-old was killed by a tear-gas shell fired by police on Sunday.

In Monday’s clashes across the city at least 13 protesters and seven policemen were hurt as officers fired shots in air and swung bamboo truncheons against protesters hurling stones and bricks.

Police said they had suspended an assistant police sub-inspector who fired the tear-gas shell.

Kashmiri separatists fighting against rule from New Delhi have held rallies, which often turn violent, regularly since 2008.

Kashmir is in the grip of a 20-year insurgency against Indian rule that has left more than 47,000 people dead, according to official figures.

Anti-India feeling runs deep in the Muslim-majority Kashmir Valley, the centre of the unrest.
