No Tears For Terrorists
By Michelle Malkin

Author: U.S. Liberals Defending Islam Are Supporting Terrorists' Agenda
A best-selling author who once had to escape from Afghanistan says America needs to evaluate seriously the meaning of free speech in light of wartime realities in the contemporary environment of Islamic terrorist aggression.

Dan Abbett: In Search of Moderate Islam
It is beginning to look like there are two distinct factions in Islam. The one that keeps its mouth shut for fear of being killed and the other one that is doing the killing. If there is such a thing as “moderate” Islamism, it has failed to make its presence known. Two recent incidents are fostering a growing pessimism over dealing with anything Islam...

Group Says Rahman One of Thousands Awaiting Death Sentence for Accepting Christ
News reports indicate that Abdul Rahman, the Afghan man who faced a possible death penalty for his acceptance of Christ as his personal Savior, has been released from a Kabul prison. No one, however, seems to know where he is since being released late yesterday.

More Christians Arrested in Afghanistan
by Hilary White
KABUL, March 28 2006, (LifeSiteNews.com) – US-based Christian news source, Compass Direct, reports that more Christians have been arrested for their faith in Afghanistan in the wake of the release of Abdul Rahman. Compass, a news service that tracks persecution of Christians mostly in Islamic countries, says harassment of the Christian community has been stepped up.  Compass says two more Christian converts have been arrested in other parts of the country, but further information is being withheld in the “sensitive situation” caused by the international media furor over Rahman. Reports of beatings and police raids on the homes of Christians are filtering out of the country through local Christian ministers.

Afghan Christian Convert Vanishes After Release
AP on Christian Post, Amir Shah, 3.28.2006
On Monday, hundreds of clerics, students and others chanting "Death to Christians!" marched through the northern Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif to protest the court decision Sunday to dismiss the case.

Truthful Intolerance: Afghanistan Case Shows Real Issue is Inalienable Rights, Not Democracy
WorldNetDaily, Alan Keyes, 3.27.2006
This case is not about respect for democratic principle. It is about respect for the principles of unalienable human rights from which the preference for democratic self-government ultimately derives . . . In both Afghanistan and Iraq, the Bush administration has acted on the assumption that Islamic faith is not incompatible with the possibility of democratic self-government. The truth is, however, that if Islam demands the use of force against believers who leave its ranks, it may equally sanction the use of force against unbelievers who refuse to join them in the first place.

Long War against Islamic Terrorists

Link between the War on Terrorism in Iraq and the War on Religion

Patriot Post:  "The threat to the West is vastly more than bin Laden and Al Qaeda .... The greater danger is the ferment in Islam that is generating radical ideas in an unknown, but growing percentage of grass-roots Muslims around the world—very much including in Europe and, to a currently lesser extent, in the United States. A nation cannot design (and maintain public support for) a rational response to the danger if the nature and extent of the danger is not identified, widely reported and comprehended. What are we dealing with? A few maladjusted 'youth'? Or a larger and growing number of perfectly well-adjusted men and women—who just happen to be adjusted to a different set of cultural, religious (or distorted religious) and political values. And does it matter that those values are inimical to western concepts of tolerance, democracy, equality and religious freedom?... Denying the existence of evil (or refusing to be judgmental about it) has never proved a reliable method for defeating it." —Tony Blankley

"The quagmire isn't in Iraq but at home. For five years, beginning with the designation of 'war on terror,' the President's public presentation has been consistent: Islam is a great religion, religion of peace, marvelous stuff, White House Ramadan Banquet the highlight of the calendar, but, sadly, every barrel has one or two bad apples, even Islam believe it or not, and once we've hunted those down we'll join the newly liberated peace-loving Muslim democracies in a global alliance of peace-loving peaceful persons. Most sentient beings have been aware that there is, to put it mildly, a large element of evasion about this basic narrative, but only now is it being explicitly rejected by all sides." —Mark Steyn

 

Muslim: I attacked 'out of love for Allah'
Man who barreled SUV into 9 people sends letter to N. Carolina TV station, cites Quran in defense

"Allah gives permission in the Quran for the followers of Allah to attack those who have raged war against them, with the expectation of eternal paradise in case of martyrdom and/or living one's life in obedience of all of Allah's commandments found throughout the Quran's 114 chapters.  My attack on Americans at UNC-CH on March 3rd was in retaliation for similar attacks orchestrated by the U.S. government on my fellow followers of Allah," wrote Mohammed Taheri-azar in a letter sent to WTVD-TV, an ABC affiliate in Durham.  He said he had intended to kill the people he struck. 

A spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations told the Associated Press Taheri-azar's claims of religious support for his actions are an old and repudiated claim.  "Islamic scholars have clearly and repeatedly stated that attacks on innocent civilians of any kind are prohibited by Islam and should be repudiated," spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said yesterday.  Read more at WorldNetDaily

WO Comment:  Islamic terrorism has reached the streets of America.  Apparently the exhortations of the "Islamic scholars" are not reaching some Muslims.  Instead of scholars Islam perhaps needs a central religious authority, like the Catholic Pope and cardinals, along with getting the word out to all followers:  "attacks on innocent civilians are prohibited."  And with news reports like the above it's not surprising to see reports like the one below:

Negative perception of Islam increasing

As the war in Iraq grinds into its fourth year, a growing proportion of Americans are expressing unfavorable views of Islam, and a majority now say that Muslims are disproportionately prone to violence, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.  The poll found that nearly half of Americans -- 46 percent -- have a negative view of Islam, seven percentage points higher than in the tense months after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Vision America

Many who practice the more radical forms of Islam are turning their venom on Christians around the world, and few are willing to call that persecution what it is.  If Islam is a religion of peace, as we are often told, why are more of its leaders not speaking out against their extremist followers who are killing innocent men and women around then world in the name of Allah?  In India, Bangladesh, the Sudan, and around the world, churches are being destroyed by Muslims, and followers of Christ are being murdered or carried away into slavery, for the simple crime of being Christian.  There is a war against Christianity raging and you cannot win the war until first you face it honestly.

In America, Muslims, Jews, atheists and others are allowed to pursue their religious beliefs freely without fear, and rightfully so.  But in the Arab world, far too often you can be arrested or worse, lose your life, for the crime of carrying a Bible openly or discussing your Christian views publicly. Our soldiers are shedding their blood in Iraq to secure the freedom of differing Moslem sects to pursue their faith freely.  However, they cannot themselves, openly express their Christian faith while there.  What's wrong with this picture?

Escalating Church and State Clashes Over Gay Marriage Inevitable, Say U.S. Experts
“The impact will be severe and pervasive”

By Gudrun Schultz

BOSTON, Massachusetts, May 9, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Conflict between religious liberty and same-sex marriage is inevitably going to escalate, said leading religious liberty scholars from both sides of the issue, in an article by the president of the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy, Maggie Gallagher.  In an article published by the Weekly Standard yesterday, Ms. Gallagher explored the question of state interference with the freedom of religious institutions who object to same-sex marriage. What she found, after speaking with a variety of experts in legal and academic fields, was a conviction among those tracking the development of the pro-gay movement in the U.S. that religious freedom was in danger of losing significant ground to the demands of the anti-discrimination campaigners.  “The impact will be severe and pervasive,” said Anthony Picarello, president and general counsel of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, one of the best religious liberty law firms and the only firm to defend all faith groups. “This is going to affect every aspect of church-state relations…because marriage affects just about every area of the law, gay marriage is going to create a point of conflict at every point around the perimeter.”  Marc Stern is general counsel for the American Jewish Congress. He agreed with Picarello that coming conflicts over same-sex marriage would be pervasive.  “Same-sex marriage would…work a sea change in American law. That change will reverberate across the legal and religious landscape in some ways that are today unpredictable,” he wrote in a paper for the Becket Fund.  The threat to freedom of religion cannot be dismissed as hysteria, he told Gallagher. “You look around the world and even the right to preach is in doubt. In the United States we are not foreseeably in that position. Fundamentally speech is still safe in the United States. Beyond speech, nothing is safe.”  Gallagher pointed out that it is not simply same-sex marriage but a specific vision of gay rights that has “placed church and state on a collision course.”  “Once sexual orientation is conceptualized as a protected status on a par with race, traditional religions that condemn homosexual conduct will face increasing legal pressures regardless of what courts and Congress do about marriage itself.”  Gallagher said legalizing gay marriage carries significant weight in the public perception of homosexuality and the impact on church institutions.  “Precisely because support for marriage is public policy, once marriage includes gay couples, groups who oppose gay marriage are likely to be judged in violation of public policy, triggering a host of negative consequences, including the loss of tax-exempt status.”  “Because marriage is not a private act, but a protected public status, the legalization of gay marriage sends a strong signal that orientation is now on a par with race in the non-discrimination game. And when we get gay marriage because courts have declared it a constitutional right, the signal is stronger still.”

The threat to freedom of religion cannot be dismissed as hysteria

Banned in Boston: The Coming Conflict Between Same-Sex Marriage and Religious Liberty.
Weekly Standard, Maggie Gallagher, 5.15.2006 (ADF)
Just how serious are the coming conflicts over religious liberty stemming from gay marriage? "The impact will be severe and pervasive," [Anthony Picarello of Becket Fund] says flatly. "This is going to affect every aspect of church-state relations . . . Can a group--a church or religious charity, say--that opposes gay marriage keep its tax exemption if gay marriage becomes the law? "That," says [Marc Stern of American Jewish Congress], "is the 18 trillion dollar question." . . . Right now, [Jonathan Turley, George Washington U. Law Professor] notes, there is no clear federal public policy against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. But such a policy is imminent, he believes, most likely within the decade.

    Palm Beach County's Proposed Zoning Ordinance Unconstitutionally Restricts Church Size and Location
    Palm Beach County, FL – On behalf of a large number of churches in Palm Beach County, Florida, Liberty Counsel wrote a letter to the Commissioners stating that a proposed zoning ordinance which restricts the size and location of churches is unconstitutional and subject to legal challenge.

    The proposed ordinance limits the maximum size of churches to 750 seats in residential areas, with even smaller limitations in suburban and rural neighborhoods. The space limitations include meeting halls and daycare centers or other church facilities. South Palm Community Church, where its current 1,200 worshippers (2,200 on Easter) meet in a public school building, purchased an option to buy 38 acres for a planned expansion. The proposed ordinance would limit the church to 250 total seats throughout the facility. Beacon Baptist Church's current building is packed out with 280. Their building project will provide 800 seats on 20 acres, which the Church owns debt free. The Church has spent about $80,000 on zoning and building studies. The proposed ordinance would prevent the church from building. Even though the Church meets all the current zoning laws, the proposed ordinance, which some believe is designed to stop Beacon Baptist, is retroactive and would divest the Church of its property interest.

    Liberty Counsel advised pastors, builders and planners that the proposed ordinance violated both federal and state law. The proposal violates the First Amendment, the Florida Constitution, the federal law known as the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, and the Florida Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed by the Florida legislature in 1998, which was drafted by Mathew D. Staver, President and General Counsel of Liberty Counsel.

    The Commissioners have been flooded with e-mails and phone calls in opposition to the proposal. The overwhelming show of opposition surprised county officials during a public hearing in March. Today county planning officials will be seeking approval to advertise several options to be voted on in May. One option is to pass the ordinance as drafted. Another is to table the proposal, and another is to eliminate the church size restrictions. The letter by Liberty Counsel to the Commissioners warns that the size restrictions are unconstitutional, and, if passed, Liberty Counsel will file suit on behalf of the churches and houses of worship.

    Commenting on this situation, Mathew Staver said: "We first want to seek an amicable resolution with Palm Beach County. But make no mistake, we are resolved to stop the county from infringing upon the religious rights of these churches and houses of worship. If the proposed ordinance is passed, we will sue, and we intend to win. The county should do the right thing and abandon the proposed ordinance. Otherwise, the county will face a costly and losing battle."

Whether you view it as political correctness run amok or part of the ongoing purge of all things Christian, some organizations including the Kentucky Board of Education are beginning to replace A.D. (anno Domini) with C.E. (common era). Even though the beginning of the historical dating system is the birth of Christ, I guess some feel that using C.E. will help neutralize that fact.
