Pentagon Bans More Christians From National Day of Prayer


The pathetic Pentagon takes another swing at Christianity, and bows down to Islam once again. Apparently the Pentagon has no issues with the Islamic scriptures, that speak out against Christians, but they do have issues with people like Rev. Graham, that speak the truth about Islam. They also had issues with the truth being spoken about the Islamic attack at Fort Hood, as they whitewashed the Islamic factor in their report on the massacre. I guess that they only see what they want, as they remain in their “moderate” Islam is coming to the rescue fantasy.

Not only has the Pentagon “disinvited” Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham from the National Day of Prayer, they have also now disinvited the “National Day of Prayer Task Force,” a Christian organization headed by Graham that includes Shirley Dobson, wife of James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family.

Newsmax reports that Pentagon spokesman George B. Wright confirmed via e-mail that the National Day of Prayer task force will not participate in the National Day of Prayer event that the Pentagon will observe on May 6.

The e-mail read in part, “While we appreciate [Franklin Graham’s] worldwide outreach, and his willingness to speak at this Pentagon multi-faith event, his presence would be inappropriate.”

Newsmax writes, “Wright did not elaborate on why a speech by Graham, whose Samaritan’s Purse organization has come to the aid of millions of needy people and children around the globe, would be ‘inappropriate.’”

Graham has come under attack, primarily by Anti-Christian Mikey Weinstein the leader of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, an organization that has sued the U.S. Army in the past demanding policy that prevents any soldier from openly expressing a belief in Jesus Christ.

Last week Franklin Graham spoke to Fox News about his stand on the Muslim faith, “I do not agree with their religion at all. And if you look at what the religion does just to women, women alone, it is just horrid. And so yes, I speak out for women. I speak out for people that live under Islam, that are enslaved by Islam and I want them to know that they can be free.”

Newsmax also reports that Wright’s email says that the event at the Pentagon, “will continue as scheduled under the administration of the office of the Pentagon Chaplain.”

“Asked which chaplains, representing which faith traditions, will be involved in the upcoming event, Wright replied: ‘The agenda has not been finalized.’” – Newsmax

Franklin Graham spoke to CBN about the controversy,

“It’s unfortunate that the military felt they needed to bow to the complaints of just a couple of people, when about 89 percent of the American people are Christians… they identify with the Christian faith. It doesn’t mean they are living with Christ, but 89 percent identify with the Christian faith.”

Graham also said, “I think no question … religious freedom is under attack. There has been an erosion now for many years, but we have seen it really accelerate in the last 10 years. This political correctness that has crept in, that if we stand for what we believe in, all the sudden we are not tolerant. They almost make it look like we are participating in hate speech, when we say that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, and there’s no way to God except through Christ and Christ alone. They are interpreting that now as being hostile and hate speech.”

To Franklin Graham’s point, the Pentagon has expressed no trepidation over those parts of the Koran which state the belief that Islam is the only way, and that Christianity is wrong. It is only when a Christian makes such statements that it becomes inappropriate.

From the Koran –

“Oh People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion, nor say of God anything but the truth. Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, was (no more than) a messenger of God, and His Word which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. Say not, ‘Trinity.’ Desist! It will be better for you, for God is One God, Glory be to Him! (Far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is God as a Disposer of affairs” (4:171).

“The Jews call ‘Uzair a son of God, and the Christians call Christ the son of God. That is but a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. God’s curse be on them; how they are deluded away from the Truth! They take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of God, and (they take as their Lord) Christ the son of Mary. Yet they were commanded to worship but One God: there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him! (Far is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)” (9:30-31).

This past weekend Barack Obama met with both Billy and Franklin Graham at the North Carolina home of Billy Graham. During that meeting Franklin Graham expressed his concerns to the President. The Commander-in-Chief assured Franklin Graham he would “look into it.”

Obama Talks to Muslim Entrepreneurs

Today is day two of the Obama lead, entrepreneurship conference with Muslims. In this article we get a glimpse of Obama’s opening day speech to the Muslims, and see that our so called leader is obviously more concerned with the Islamic world than us. My question is, if Islam is so great why does the Islamic world constantly need the help of the infidels?

Obama Talks to Muslim Entrepreneurs

President Obama vowed to continue to press for a comprehensive peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians, exhorting young entrepreneurs from Muslim majority countries on Monday to look for ways to work with their American counterparts on a wide range of issues.

“So long as I am president, the United States will never waver in pursuit of a two-state solution that ensures the rights of both Israelis and Palestinians,” Mr. Obama said.

Mr. Obama was speaking to businesspeople and intellectuals from Muslim countries who were attending his first summit on entrepreneurship, an offshoot of his speech to the Muslim world last year from Cairo.

The president called for more exchanges between Americans and Muslims, vowing to engage in a “sustained effort” to reach out and listen to opinions from Muslim countries, particularly of young people.

“Trade between the United States and Muslim majority countries is growing, but all this trade combined is only equal to our trade with one country—Mexico,” Mr. Obama said.

The summit in Washington, which ends Tuesday, is focusing on ways that Americans and Muslims of different backgrounds can exchange views and learn from one another.

Mr. Obama’s comments on Middle East peace are noteworthy because they come as the administration is embroiled in a dispute with the Israeli government over construction of Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem, which Palestinians want as the capital of a future Palestinian state.

Mr. Obama discussed the issue at the White House on Monday with Israeli’s defense minister, Ehud Barak, White House officials said.

American Muslims and Protestants, can we Talk?

A more accurate title to this article would be, “American Muslims to Protestants, can we lie to you?” Last week there was a survey taken of Protestant Pastors. The results were that they agreed with Rev. Graham, as they also stand against Islam as well. Now comes the Muslim response, which of course is full of lies.

American Muslims and Protestants, Can we talk?

American Protestants need to understand that their American Muslim neighbours do worship the very same God.
By Hesham A. Hassaballa

Last week, the Pentagon rescinded their invitation to speak at a National Day of Prayer event for pastor Franklin Graham, son of Rev. Billy Graham, because of his past and current sentiments about Islam. Speaking about the decision, Army spokesman Col. Tom Collins said, “This Army honors all faiths and tries to inculcate our soldiers and work force with an appreciation of all faiths and his past comments just were not appropriate for this venue.”

In 2001, Franklin Graham said, “We’re not attacking Islam but Islam has attacked us. The God of Islam is not the same God. He’s not the son of God of the Christian or Judeo-Christian faith. It’s a different God, and I believe it is a very evil and wicked religion.”

In 2006, he didn’t back down saying, “I know about Islam. I don’t need an education from Islam. If people think Islam is such a wonderful religion, just go to Saudi Arabia and make it your home. Just live there. If you think Islam is such a wonderful religion, I mean, go and live under the Taliban somewhere. I mean, you’re free to do that.” Then, in a Wall Street Journal piece, Graham wrote: “the persecution or elimination of non-Muslims has been a cornerstone of Islamic conquests and rule for centuries. Graham also said the Quran “provides ample evidence that Islam encourages violence in order to win converts and to reach the ultimate goal of an Islamic world.”

Pretty tough talk from a major Christian pastor. It also seems that a majority of Protestant ministers agree with Franklin Graham. Nashville-based LifeWay Research conducted a poll of 1,000 Protestant ministers and read them a negative statement about Islam from Franklin Graham and then read them a statement by George W. Bush that Islam is a religion of peace and charity. Forty-seven percent agreed with Graham’s statement, twelve percent agreed with both Graham and Bush, and about twenty-five percent agreed with Bush alone.

Yes, it is tough talk from a Christian pastor. Of course you would rather that Christians turned the other cheek, and just let Islam dominate them. I also noticed that you have not refuted anything that the Reverend stated.

“This means a majority of Protestant pastors chose statements that agree with Franklin Graham’s statement,” said Ed Stetzer, president of LifeWay Research, to the Tennessean newspaper. Stetzer also said, “This should not surprise us — Protestant Christianity is, in a sense, a competing faith, and that comes through in the survey.” Most ministers also said Muslims and Christians do not pray to the same God.

This means that American Muslims and Protestants have a lot of work to do. There needs to be more dialogue between the two faith communities: not to convert each other’s flock, but to promote increased mutual understanding. American Protestants need to understand that their American Muslim neighbours do worship the very same God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Moses, and Jesus. They need to understand that the name, “Allah,” is just the Arabic form of the Aramaic “Alaha,” which is what Jesus Christ called God. American Protestants should know that Islam reveres and honours Jesus Christ, who is mentioned more by name in the Quran than the Prophet Muhammad himself.

This a major lie. The God of Christianity, cannot be the same God as Islam. According to the Islamic scriptures, Jesus will return as a Muslim and destroy Christianity. I am pretty sure that the God of Christianity, would not agree to this.

Book 37, Number 4310:
Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 658:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said “How will you be when the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you and he will judge people by the Law of the Quran and not by the law of Gospel (Fateh-ul Bari page 304 and 305 Vol 7)

Contrary to the contentions of Franklin Graham, Islam does not preach the “persecution or elimination of non-Muslims.” Rather, Islam sees itself as the culmination of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and it honours its Prophets and traditions. The Quran says, “Verily, those who have attained to faith [in this divine writ], as well as those who follow the Jewish faith, and the Christians, and the Sabians — all who believe in God and the Last Day and do righteous deeds-shall have their reward with their Sustainer; and no fear need they have, and neither shall they grieve” (2:62) More of our Protestant brothers and sisters need to understand this.

That was another major lie, you are on a roll Hesham.


Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

That sure sounds like persecution to me.

Are there some Muslims who believe that Christians and Jews are Islam’s enemies? Yes, most definitely. But they twist and distort the message of Islam and the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad. Their misunderstandings should not be projected upon the whole of Islam any more than, for example, the crimes of pedophile priests should be projected upon all of RomanCatholic Christianity.

Hesham scores again, hat trick! Lie number three, and there is no misunderstanding here.

YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

Those sicko Priests need to be locked up, but their religion did not command them to do what they did.

The poll’s findings, however, were not all negative. Despite the fact that most pastors held negative views regarding Islam, 60 percent believed Muslims and Christians should coexist peacefully in the United States.

Said Ed Stetzer, “The fact is Protestant pastors tend to hold a negative view of Islam, but they also believe they should seek to coexist.” This should be the starting point of Christian-Muslim dialogue. Once both communities come to learn about one another, bonds of friendship and trust will develop, and the forces that seek to divide our people along religious lines will be resisted and their voices of discord can be muted for good.

Are you going to mute the voice of Islam for good? If not, your words mean nothing. Islamic smokescreen fails.

My “Debate” With Islamic Apologist, Professor Juan Cole

When last week’s South Park/Mohammad controversy started, the NY based website, had stated that the shows creators Matt Stone, and Trey Parker might be murdered. (Video below)

At this point Professor Juan Cole, came running to defend Islam. Which is basically what his life revolves around.

“Yunus Muhammad” says in the interview that the Qur’an instructs Muslims to ‘terrorize the disbelievers.’ It does no such thing. The Qur’an instructs Muslims to live at peace with non-Muslims who are at peace with them. (It turns at that this minor, fringe group is led by converts from Judaism, one of them a former settler in Israel. It is not clear whether they have sincerely exchanged one fanaticism for another or whether this is a false flag operation, perhaps of an intelligence agency. In any case, it is no accident that they are ignorant of the Qur’an.

The false flag comment is pretty funny, as Cole will obviously say anything to defend Islam. At this point I left the following post on Cole’s site. It was held in moderation mode, until approval.

Juan Cole needs to stop making excuses for Islam.

Here is what 8:60 states.

YUSUFALI: Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

The Koran does say to terrorize non-Muslims.

YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”

YUSUFALI: This because they contended against Allah and His Messenger: If any contend against Allah and His Messenger, Allah is strict in punishment.

You guys might want to look up what “contend” means. Simple reasons that call for Muslims to terrorize non-Muslims.


Or this hadith…

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).

I know, Cole knows more about Islam, and has more influence in the Islamic world, than Sahih Bukhari does…

The Koran also instructs Muslims that they can kill someone for spreading “mischief” in the land. “Mischief”, can be anything that a Muslim says that it is.

YUSUFALI: On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person – unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land – it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our messengers with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

The Koran is also for all time, and Mohammad’s actions are to be followed for all time.

The funny part is that Juan Cole, does not get to dictate to Muslims what Islam is. But his followers act like he has a say in the Islamic world. The man is a traitor to Western Civilization.

Have a nice day…

I also emailed the comment to Cole, and the following was that best that he could do.

In order to iterpret an ancient text expertly you need to know the
language and the context.

At least have the humility to know what you don’t know.


The old, it is not interpreted correctly excuse does not fly. So in my reply, I pointed out which Islamic scholars had translated the scriptures that I have studied.

Translation: You cannot refute what I said, and Islam is a religion of war. Which is backed up by Yusuf Ali, Bukhari, Muslim, and the scholars at Al Azhar. But maybe they did not know the language and context either, and you know better. That is pretty funny. You are a fraud, that helps the enemy advance.

They are all wrong, and you the nobody in the Islamic world is right. Hilarious.

YUSUFALI: Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”
PICKTHAL: When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger.

The context is that the actions of Mohammad, are to be followed for all time.

YUSUFALI: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.

But you only show your readers what you want them to know.

Besides these scholars, maybe you can go to Al Azhar (the highest learning Islamic school in the world), and teach them what Islam really is….

Have great day!

At this point Cole ran away, with his tail between his legs. He also left this comment on his site.

Juan says:
April 22, 2010 at 2:00 pm
You would be wrong. The Qur’an says that Christians are closest in love to Mislims. The Qur’an does not consider non-Muslims enemies of God! It praises the children of Israel. False premises lead to false assertions.

I responded by saying that verse 5:32 (above), and the following verse which calls for the extortion of Christians and Jews do not praise Israelis. Why do you only show your readers certain parts of the Koran?

YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

For hours my comments on his site were held in moderation mode. They were then deleted by Cole, who obviously does not want his readers to know the ugly truth about Islam. Juan Cole, the cowardly traitor.

Obama to Beam Message to Irish Muslim Entrepreneurs

This Monday and Tuesday our Islam loving President, will be holding a conference on entrepreneurship with Muslims. Catering to Muslims is a failed policy, which can easily be seen in the UK. That will not stop Obama though, as he is intend on trying to force us to respect the Islamic world. Don’t cave in!

Obama to beam message to Irish Muslim entrepreneurs
25 April 2010 By John Burke, Public Affairs Correspondent

US president Barack Obama will address Irish-Muslim businesspeople and community leaders during a two-day entrepreneurship event this week.

Obama’s message on the benefits and opportunities of enterprise will be broadcast over the internet from Washington to a gathering in Dublin of Irish Muslims from the worlds of trade, investments and markets.

During the presidential entrepreneurship summit, the president will speak about developing closer links between the Muslim community and providing the capability and funds to develop new business and co-operative networks.

The US embassy in Ireland is hosting the Muslim business people and community leaders at Boston College on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin on Tuesday. Other Muslim leaders across the globe will also participate in Obama’s entrepreneurship summit.

The idea for the event, which will bring together Muslims with an interest in developing close business links, dates back to an address Obama gave last year in Cairo. He announced a vision for a new beginning that would ‘‘deepen ties between business leaders, foundations and social entrepreneurs’’ in Muslim communities around the world.

The Irish event begins on Tuesday at 12.30pm at Boston College, where the US embassy will stage a meet-and-greet, lunch and a discussion on Obama’s ‘Cairo objectives’ and his initial address to the global conference, which starts tomorrow.

After the discussion, the Irish participants will plug into a live online broadcast of the summit, where ‘‘the important discussion will be on entrepreneurship and enabling business’’, according to the US embassy’s director of public affairs, Karyn Posner-Mullen.

Among the community leaders taking part in the Dublin leg of the summit are Mubarak Habib, who owns Maasail and Adventures, a travel agency that runs tours to Kenya.

It offers a visit to the village of Kogelo, where Obama’s father was born and raised. The other participants include Manan Hameed, whose family are connected to the Madina Asian Food Company, and Hyat Syed of the Kohinoor Company, a Dublin-based food company.

The themes of Obama’s summit are identifying entrepreneurs, developing training and education programmes, university partnerships and mentorships, developing networks to foster innovative programmes, and funding entrepreneurship projects.

Obama has said that the aim of the summit is to convene leading entrepreneurs from Muslim communities around the world and start ‘‘new conversations exploring how to rise above current challenges’’.

They will share resources and lessons learned from the US public and private sectors, and forge relationships with US public and private bodies and overseas partners to develop innovative solutions to commonlyshared problems.

In the final stages of the process, the US hopes to develop and sustain the entrepreneurship networks generated through the summit.

That will involve supporting locally-run annual regional conferences to which Ireland’s Muslim community would also contribute.

Interested parties can plug directly into the Obama summit next week and hear the president’s address by logging on at

Iraq: Shiite vs. Sunni Feud Continues

When it comes to “nation building”, I have stated over and over, that the infidel does not get to dictate to Muslims what Islam is. This is not a knock at our great troops, it is just that they warriors, and not magicians. The centuries long Shiite vs. Sunni feud, will also not change because we want it to. Besides the Shiite vs. Sunni problem, Iraq has also become a Christian persecuting country, and things will get worse when the troops leave. It is time to face the reality that the Western world is not going to transform the Islamic world. We must now protect ourselves here at home, and contain Islam. To do this we need to end all financial aid to Islamic countries, end their immigration, and officially ban Sharia Law. If any Muslim then calls for Sharia, they are to be arrested, and deported if possible. All Sharia loving Muslims, are to be looked upon as enemies of the state. Just as Nazis were.

Shiite cleric calls on followers to defend mosques

Sat Apr 24

BAGHDAD – An influential anti-American Shiite cleric called on his followers to defend themselves and places of worship after deadly Baghdad mosque bombings but urged self-restraint to avoid giving the U.S. military an excuse for postponing withdrawal plans.

 statement signaled growing impatience among Shiites over continued bombings by insurgents and the government’s failure to protect them.

Friday’s bombings — most targeting Shiite places of worship as crowds were at prayer — killed 72 people in Iraq’s bloodiest day so far this year in an apparent backlash by the Sunni-led insurgency after the slaying of the top two al-Qaida leaders last weekend.

Nobody claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Iraqi officials were quick to blame al-Qaida in Iraq, which frequently targets Shiite mosques and processions in a bid to stoke new sectarian bloodshed. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said the insurgents were fighting back after the deaths of their two leaders.

Al-Sadr, whose forces have frequently clashed with the Americans, issued a statement late Friday calling on “believers” to join the Iraqi army and police “to defend their shrines, mosques, prayers, markets, houses and their towns.”

He stopped short of mentioning the Mahdi Army, his once-powerful militia, which used to respond to such attacks with raids on Sunni areas. Several advisers said al-Sadr was offering his assistance to the government in a rare show of magnanimity to al-Maliki.

The two men were once allies but became rivals after al-Maliki backed U.S.-Iraqi offensives in 2008 that crushed al-Sadr’s fighters and forced him to declare a series of cease-fires.

The cleric, who is widely believed to be based in Iran, has re-emerged as a prominent politician and a potential kingmaker after his followers fared well in the inconclusive March 7 parliamentary vote. That left al-Maliki and his secular rival Ayad Allawi jockeying for allies to give them the necessary majority support to govern.

The protracted political wrangling has raised fears of sectarian violence akin to that seen at the height of the war. U.S. and Iraqi officials have acknowledged that insurgents maintain the ability to stage high-profile bombings while noting the Shiites have not resumed retaliatory attacks.

A Sadrist who won a seat in the new parliament, Hakim al-Zamili, emphasized that al-Sadr’s statement was not meant to supplant the Iraqi military or put armed supporters on the streets.

Al-Sadr urged Iraqi leaders “not to be pulled toward the malicious American plans that intend to pull Iraq into wars and fighting in order to find the pretext for staying on our holy lands.” He appeared to be appealing for a renewed commitment, despite continued violence, to stick to a deadline for all U.S. forces to withdraw from Iraq by the end of 2011.

Al-Zamili — himself once imprisoned for alleged links to Shiite death squads although the charges were eventually dropped — said he and other Sadrists had to intervene when the Iraqi military arrived on the bomb scene Friday because people in the neighborhood were so angry that he feared a serious altercation between residents and military personnel.

Weeping and wailing crowds marched in funeral processions Saturday in the vast eastern Baghdad slum of Sadr City, where the worst of Friday’s violence occurred, and Shiite leaders called for three days of mourning. Women in black cloaks comforted crying boys, and anguished men held posters of clerical leaders as they marched.

Al-Sadr’s office erected a large mourning tent close to where the bombs exploded, with prayer mats still stained with blood left on the street. Few Iraqi security forces were deployed. Persistent violence has cast doubt on the government’s ability to secure the country as U.S. forces pull back.

“The government, I hold the government responsible,” said Najim Abdul-Hussein, who works near one Sadr City blast site. “There is no stability. That’s why these attacks are increasing.”
