Afghans Riot Over Death in US Night Raid

Back in March, Afghans told General McChrystal to jump, and he asked how high? He then restricted our great troops even more, and changed the policies on night raids. Apparently the General knows little about the Islamic world. He seems oblivious to the fact, that the more we give, the more they want. Their demands are never ending. Besides having the troops fight with one hand tied behind their back, it is time to move away from this nation building plan. The infidel does not get to dictate to Muslims what Islam is. It is time to bring the troops home, and end all Muslim immigration.

Afghanistan war: US night raid sparks protest over civilian deaths
By Dion Nissenbaum Dion Nissenbaum – Thu Apr 29

Kabul, Afghanistan – Irate demonstrators burned tires and blocked traffic in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday after U.S.-led forces killed an armed relative of an Afghan lawmaker during a night raid on her home, according to military and Afghan officials.

The confrontation was another setback for the American-led military coalition in Afghanistan, which has declared an aim of reducing civilian deaths and winning support from skeptical Afghans as it prepares for a prolonged summer offensive meant to hobble the Taliban.

U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the head of coalition forces in Afghanistan, has issued a series of orders meant to curtail civilian deaths, which alienate the public and provide fodder for insurgents.

McChrystal recently put new constraints on controversial night raids, requiring Afghan forces to play an integral role and to take the lead when homes are entered.

The American military said Afghan soldiers took part in Wednesday night’s deadly search, but the Afghan family that was caught up in the raid questioned that contention.

“I didn’t see any Afghan forces,” said Shah Fasial Sidiqi, the younger brother of Afghan lawmaker Safiya Sidiqi and one of those whom U.S. forces held for several hours during the raid.

Demonstrators took to the streets in Nangarhar province Thursday as Safiya Sidiqi denounced the U.S. for the raid that killed one of her relatives.

“I was afraid of Taliban, and now I can say the Americans are the enemy of the women of Afghanistan,” she told McClatchy.

Sidiqi wasn’t home when the raid began late Wednesday night at her village in Nangarhar province, east of Kabul.

However, her brother, Shah Fasial Sidiqi, a resident of Canada who’d returned to Afghanistan earlier this week to visit his family, was there when the Americans came looking for a Taliban leader.

He said that more than 80 U.S. soldiers took over the family compound before midnight. The Americans tied up 15 men, women and children and blindfolded the Sidiqi relatives, he said.

The grocery store worker from Toronto said he told the Americans that they were taking over the home of a lawmaker.

“They said, ‘We know,’ ” he told McClatchy on Thursday.

During the search, Safiya Sidiqi said, one of her brothers-in-law emerged from a neighboring house with an old hunting rifle and was shot.

In a statement, U.S. forces said that the man was killed after he took aim at American and Afghan troops who were taking part in the raid. The news release said that intelligence had led them to search the homes for a “Taliban facilitator,” though no arrests were made.

The controversy is the latest to hamper U.S. efforts to win increased support from Afghans.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has long been critical of night raids. Last month, McChrystal imposed tighter rules on the operations.

An Afghan man is “conditioned to respond aggressively in defense of his home and his guests whenever he perceives his home or honor is threatened,” McChrystal said at the time.

“In a similar situation, most of us would do the same,” he said. “This reaction is compounded when our forces invade his home at night, particularly when women are present. Instinctive responses to defend his home and family are sometimes interpreted as insurgent acts, with tragic results.”

The directive was part of an ongoing effort by McChrystal that had some initial success in reducing civilian deaths.

Last year, civilian deaths due to American-led forces and the Afghan government fell by nearly 30 percent, according to a U.N. report this year. Civilian deaths rose 14 percent in 2009 and hit their highest levels of the decade. The U.S. and its allies were responsible for about a quarter of those 2,412 deaths, the U.N. report said.

Since then, the campaign to contain such deaths has had a series of setbacks.

There’s been a dramatic spike in civilian deaths in the first three months of this year. According to military figures, the international coalition and its Afghan allies killed 87 civilians in Afghanistan over that period, a significant jump from the first quarter of 2009, when the coalition said it was responsible for the deaths of 29 Afghan civilians.

American officials said the jump was the result, in part, of accelerated military operations and a flood of new troops into Afghanistan.

Even so, a series of military missteps in recent months has undermined McChrystal’s overriding message.

Earlier this month, the U.S. military apologized for a botched special forces raid in February that killed five civilians, including two pregnant women.

The military was forced to admit responsibility for the deaths after The Times of London questioned the official version of the attack, which suggested that Taliban fighters had killed the women.

Two weeks ago, protesters denounced the United States after American forces in Kandahar killed four civilians when they fired on a bus that was following a military convoy outside the city.

On Thursday, U.S. military officials said they were looking into the latest controversy.

“We are taking Safiya Sidiqi’s allegations seriously and thoroughly reviewing our actions and intelligence connecting the Taliban facilitator to that particular compound,” said U.S. Army Col. Wayne Shanks, the chief of public affairs for the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.

Shah Fasial Sidiqi criticized the Americans for the raid and said that even if his relative was armed, they shouldn’t have killed him in the murky circumstances.

“This is a shame for America,” he said. “They are worse than the Taliban.”

Nice comments there, if that is the way that many of feel, they do not deserve our help. Let the fend for themselves.

Obama: US Making Comic Books to Appease Muslims

Most us see that Dictator Obama, is on a nonstop mission to cater to Muslims. Now his outreach program has reached comical proportions, literally. This comic book series raises a few questions.

1.Will the Islamic superhero, behead the enemy?
2.If it is a female, will wearing a burqa make her fly?
3.Is George Bush one of the villains?

Any others?

Obama Pledges To Forge Better Ties With The Muslim World

President Obama today announced that Washington will set up exchange programs with business people throughout the Muslim world in order to establish better relations with the Muslim population across the globe.

The move is a part of the overall outreach programme outlined by the president last year. “The new beginning we seek is not only possible, it has already begun,” Obama told the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship in Washington, D.C, quoted The Associated Press.

During the summit, Obama announced that under the new exchange programmes Muslim busniess people will get opportunities to invest in Silicon Valley, technology, telecommunications, health care, education and infrastructure. The delegates from the U.S. and Muslim countries were present during the summit.

Last June, Obama had said during his speech in Cairo that the US would maintain better relations with the Muslims in future. “Over the past year the United States has been reaching out and listening,” he said. Obama’s bid to forge better ties with the Muslims include withdrawal of the US troops from iraq, working with Afghanistan and Pakistan to “isolate violent extremists,” and resolution of the lingering conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

Obama said that the US is also making outreach in cultural sector, including a comic book series in which American superhero Superman and Batman work with their Muslim counterparts. “And I hear they’re making progress,” Obama said.

Ex-CAIR Chairman Takes Seat on Jacksonville Human Rights Commission

The City Council of Jacksonville, has lent a hand in the slow suicide of America. They have voted the ex-chairman of the Cancer of American Islamic Relations, onto their Human Rights Commission. Back in 2008 when Parvez Ahmed left CAIR, he said he wanted the group to be even more pro-active in promoting the civil rights of Muslims. Like they had not done enough damage already. He is also another Islamic liar, as he made the following ridiculous statement.

“The values of Islam and the values of America are complimentary.”

The City Council was warned, but they still voted him in. I guess they wanted to show how “tolerant” they are.

Council Approves Ahmed’s Nomination
Muslim Nominated To Human Rights Commission Has Stirred Controversy
April 27, 2010

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The City Council voted 13-6 Tuesday evening to approve nomination to the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission.

Ahmed, a professor at the University of North Florida, called the last few weeks surrounding his nomination a contrived controversy that threatened to stand in the way of him serving on the commission. Now, he said he’s looking forward to moving on.

“I also hope this has been an opportunity to learn and dialogue on difficult matters, the kind of issues that the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission is uniquely positioned to influence,” Ahmed said after the approval. “I will work with the commission, our city leaders and our entire community to begin the process of healing.”

Ahmed, a Muslim, said he condemns Hamas and Hezbollah and their terrorist actions.

“They are (terrorists), exactly what the state department has said,” Ahmed said. “My feeling, they have committed acts of terrorism, and those acts need to be condemned.”

Ahmed believed City Council members would see it his way Tuesday night and confirm his nomination, and they did just after 6 p.m.

Leading a charge against Ahmed was Randy McDaniels of Act for America. McDaniels voiced concerns over Ahmed’s former job with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has been linked to terrorism.

“He’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing, in my personal opinion, and I’m going to say that,” McDaniels said. “This man is world renowned for his ties to Hamas Hezbollah’s support, and this is agreed with Mr. (Ray) Holt, who changed his vote to no.”

Ahmed said his character was being unfairly attacked. He was backed by the mayor, who reminded City Council members in e-mails that no criminal complaints exist against him.

“All of the things that have been alleged are caricatures of who I really am, but those who know me have given the exact opposite picture of those who have taken a slanderous position against me,” Ahmed said.

Clinton Promotes Women Entrepreneurs in Muslim World

Like tag team wrestlers, Obama and Clinton are working together to bring us down, while catering to the Islamic world. The end result will be a failed effort to create a mutual respect between the Muslim and non-Muslim world. No matter what we do, the Islamic world will continue to look to dominate us. It is what their scriptures call for.

Clinton promotes women entrepreneurs in Muslim world
Wednesday, 28 Apr, 2010

WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday announced business initiatives to benefit women in Muslim countries as part of a broader drive this week to promote US-Muslims economic ties.

“What we’re doing is trying to pry open those doors of opportunity for more people to walk through, more people in Muslim-majority countries and more women specifically,” Clinton told a breakfast gathering.

“Because the fact is that women still have a harder time accessing loans and equity capital investments,” Clinton said.

The chief US diplomat promised, for example, to pair women entrepreneurs in Muslim countries with US business mentors who will offer them up to six weeks of training in California’s hi-tech Silicon Valley.

The projects announced here are also part of a State Department campaign to promote women entrepreneurs internationally, underscoring Clinton’s views that bettering the lot of women will help lift countries out of war and poverty.

She announced the “Secretary’s International Fund for Women and Girls,” a public-private partnership to provide grants to non-government organizations which seek to help women make economic, social, and political gains.

The fund is designed to offer women greater economic opportunities, combat violence against them and give them greater access to education and health care.

Clinton speech at a breakfast for women entrepreneurs came after President Barack Obama on Monday laid a key plank of his strategy to mend ties with the Islamic world when he hosted a summit to boost development in Muslim nations.

The president pledged to host the meeting in a landmark speech in Cairo last June, when he also called for a “new beginning” to relations between the United States and the Muslim world which hit a low under president George W. Bush.

Also this week, Clinton announced the launch of the Global Entrepreneurship Program’s first pilot program, in Muslim-majority Egypt, coordinated by a team of entrepreneurs sponsored by the US Agency for International Development.

“We will soon launch our second program in Indonesia, and we plan to expand to a dozen countries within the next two years,” Clinton said during meetings with entrepreneurs on Tuesday. -AFP

To make matters worse, our country is falling apart, and our government is obsessed with helping Muslim countries. Priorities, priorities…

Nation’s Largest Public Policy Women’s Organization Takes Swipe at Pentagon for Bowing to Islam

Finally a women’s organization has spoken out against Islam, and has even criticized the politically correct Pentagon. Concerned Women for America is a Christian based organization, and hopefully their courage will open the door for more Christians to speak up. Since most of our country identifies themselves as Christians, we are going to need a large Christian movement to win this war. If you don’t want your families future generations living under Islamic rule, turning the other cheek is not an option. Speak up, and speak often!

Is U.S. military cowering before Muslims?
Chad Groening – OneNewsNow – 4/27/2010

The nation’s largest public policy women’s organization is appalled at the way the Pentagon appears more committed to appeasing Muslims, than allowing a high-profile Christian leader to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to members of the military.

Last week the Pentagon created an uproar when the Army announced that it would rescind an invitation to Franklin Graham to speak at the Pentagon’s National Prayer Day event on May 6. The radical Muslim group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations applauded the decision, calling the well-known evangelist “controversial.” CAIR had pushed the Pentagon to disinvite Graham because he had told the truth about the violent teachings of Islam.

Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, has chimed in with other pro-family leaders who have expressed their outrage. She says it is appalling that the military is afraid of offending Muslims.

“The military would disinvite him apparently because they’re afraid of offending violent Muslims,” she observes. “This is just a Muslim belief that non-Muslims must show subservience of Muslims.

“And to think that the military — which is in midst of a war against radical Islam — is actually kowtowing to some of the most violent elements of that religion makes me fearful for our country.”

Wright expresses concerns that apparently there are people in the leadership of the U.S. military who are more afraid of offending America’s enemies than they are about advancing the very thing that could bring peace — the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Montreal: Muslims Have Crucifixes Removed in Hospital

This was sent in from a reader in Montreal.

From John in Montreal.

My friend at the Lachine Hospital in Montreal told me Muslim lab employees had the crucifixes removed from the premises they were working. Those were crucifixes that were also part of it`s heritage, placed by the Catholic founders of the hospital. The employees put those crucifixes in garbage bags and placed them in the basement.

I had called to complain and a receptionist gave me a number at McGill University, which is the university associated with Lachine Hospital. Mcgill investigated and they were not aware prior to my call because Lachine hospital employees were too coward to file complaint.

My friend was unaware that I called,but she told me word went around that someone had called and a memo went around stating that no object belonging to the hospital shall be removed without proper authority.

If I had not found out, nor complained, then who would have? ….certainly not the employees bowing to Islam…the same Islam that hates them.

Good work John!
