The Lamb of God church serves congregation as main course in the name of interfaith dialogue. Pastor Walter Fohs of the Lamb of God Church in Estero, Florida invites the wolves to dine and proposes future dinners at the “Table of Abraham” outreach program.
The church allowed the showing of a propaganda film “Inside Islam: what a billion Muslims really think” by Unity Productions, however what was most disturbing is the fact that Imam Shaker Elsayed of the Falls Church, Va. Mosque “Dar Al Hijrah”, was the guest speaker.
Dar Al Hijrah Mosque is well known for its ties to Al Qeada. Former Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki is currently on a U.S. capture kill list, and other former members include two of the 911 hijackers, Major Nidal Hassan of the Fort Hood Massacre, and Ahmed Omar Abu Ali who attempted to assassinate President Bush to name a few.
The guest speaker, Imam Elsayed, is an Islamic Law scholar and former Secretary General of the Muslim American Society; a co-conspirator in US vs. HLF trial and DOJ designated Muslim Brotherhood front group. Elsayed also served as the unofficial spokesman in defense of Ahmed Omar Abu Ali who is serving a life sentence.
A coalition of national security activist from ACT! for America and the Florida Security Council, have done extensive research on the authors of the book and film, as well as extensive research on Muslim Brotherhood front groups operating throughout Florida and the nation.
Throughout the film, the information and polling data is questionable and at times, very distorted. The authors Dalia Mogahed and John Esposito have made statements in support of terrorism or sit on boards of groups who advocate the destruction of capitalism and imposition of Islamic (Sharia) law world wide as the rule of government.
“Many people say the terrorist have hijacked Islam, I disagree…. what terrorist have been allowed to take control of are Muslim grievances” Dalia Mogahed April 2009 on pro martyr site by terrorist Qarawdawi
“The Western view of Sharia is "oversimplified" and the majority of women around the world associate it with "gender justice" Dalia Mogahed on Interview with Hizb Ut Tahrir Terror Group members
Esposito was a defense witness in what turned out to be the largest terrorism funding case in U.S. history “US vs. HLF” trial in Dallas Texas, resulting in 108 guilty verdicts. Esposito also sits on the board for the Institute for Islamic Political Thought, which calls for the imposition of Sharia law in place of manmade laws, has likens Yasser Arafat’s calls for jihad to social initiatives such as the “fight against AIDS”, and calls convicted terrorist Sami al-Arian “a good friend and consummate professional.”
After the Film, Imam Elsayed, an Islamic Law scholar gave a PowerPoint presentation comparing the prophets Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed.
ElSayed had the temerity to present a narrative in a Christian church which ultimately nullified Christianity and portrayed Jesus as a mere man and poor example of a prophet. During this comparison he had the arrogance to say “If your ears do not like the words they are hearing, do not blame me… this is your book” referring to Isaiah in the old testament in a play on the meaning of word, while simultaneously denigrating Jesus.
The Coalition leaders Alan Kornman and Randy McDaniels of Act for America, Tom Trento of The Florida Security Council, and videographer J. Mark Campbell capture the event on film and will be releasing it to the public soon.
ACT Jacksonville and Orlando previously protested the film in Tampa and Jacksonville, The Tampa film was promoted by former CAIR member Ahmed Bedier currently of United Voices of America.
The Jacksonville showing was hosted by Akif Ayden of the Amity Turkish Cultural Center, who also conducts interfaith outreach via the “Table of Abraham”, and featured former CAIR national chairman Parvez Ahmed as a panelist.
CAIR is currently under a federal grand jury investigation resulting from over 12,000 pages of evidence linking them to terrorism and other nefarious activities and is in fact the propaganda arm of Hamas in America, a designated Muslim Brotherhood front group and a co-conspirator in the U.S. vs. HLF trial.
In attendance at various showings, were Nation of Islam members and Muslims of the America’s whose leader Sheik Mubarak Giulani, who currently operates 35 terrorist training camps on U.S. soil and allegedly connected to the abduction and beheading of Wall Street journalist Daniel Pearl.
“The Prince Alwaleed bin Talal center for Muslim-Christian Understanding” at Georgetown University, where Dalia Mogahed and John Esposito work was gifted over $20 million dollars by the prince to establish this center. The Prince, also funds a great deal of the Middle East Studies programs, interfaith outreach, the building of Mosques in America, and adheres to Islamic Law and concepts of re-establishment of a worldwide Caliphate.
At all events, answers we received were often deceptive or evasive. In Tampa former CAIR member and United Voices for America president Ahmed Bedier canceled the scheduled Q & A, due to our presence and knowledge of his support of terrorism.
Former CIA director James Woolsey, while speaking at the ACT! for America national conference in Washing, D.C. in June said (paraphrased) while there are 1.3 billion Muslims worldwide, approximately 2% are the radical extremist willing to use violence, this is a large number in itself, but what is alarming is that this 2% controls approximately 90% of the worlds Mosques and Institutions. In other words those who espouse extremist ideologies, essentially control the message.
This type of deceptive outreach has gone on unchallenged for too long. Church and community leaders need to understand that America has an enemy hostile to its very existence and its core beliefs.
The Islamists, who promotes these ideologies, are in many cases congenial, disarming and well educated, but make no mistake these wolves in sheep’s clothing have a well thought out and documented plans they are following in compliance with the doctrines of political Islam.
The memorandum by Mohammad Akram, “The Strategic Goals for the Group in North America” lays out how the Muslim Brotherhood will “Invade the western heartland and destroy its miserable house from within “by their hands (Americans due to political correctness) and those of the believers”
These strategies are being implemented by those who follow the teachings in books such as “Milestones” by Sayyid Qutb and “Methodology of Dawah” or outreach by Siddiqi.
How did America get to the point where men who openly support terrorism are conducting religious outreach, holding political offices, infiltrating our Military and Intelligence communities, and educating our children?
How did America get to the point where men like Imam Darsani are in “Charge” of the church? As he said to us with Pastor Fohs sheepish nod of approval, and how can an Imam come into a Christian house of worship and tell a room full of sheeple, so docile they don’t even oppose the nullification of their religion and denigration of their Savior?.....I can only think of three words “LACK OF LEADERSHIP”
How did America get to the point that opposition to Islamist Ideologies or the men who support them is met with accusations of “Islamophobia”, “Racism”, or “Bigotry” by not only the Islamist but the community as well, often times in disregard to the facts?
I'll give you a hint…… a well educated adversary (insurgency) with a documented plan to implement Sharia Law worldwide and establish a worldwide Caliphate.
Adversaries, like Hitler, who spelled out in writing what they believed, what they were going to do, and how they were going to do it…. Yet the world keeps asking…. What do they mean when people like Omar Ahmed of CAIR say “Islam is not in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to be dominant, the Qur’an should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only religion on earth”? I think they mean exactly that!
Our community leaders have become dhimmi’s to Islamist across this nation. Pastor Fohs is just one example of the dhimmitude so prevalent in America today. We need leadership who is educated and courageous enough to address the truth before them… even if it is unpopular and may cause discomfort or ridicule.

Oklahoma congressional candidate Kevin Calvey turns down money from Hamas-linked CAIR: "CAIR is the moral equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan" - Jihad Watch
Oklahoma congressional candidate Kevin Calvey turns down money from Hamas-linked CAIR: "CAIR is the moral equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan"
Bravo. "Oklahoma congressional candidate says he will not accept money from an Islamic group," by Julie Bisbee for the Oklahoman, July 15:
A congressional candidate has refused a campaign donation from the executive director of an Islamic-American association, saying the group has ties to terrorist groups.
Kevin Calvey, a candidate for the 5th Congressional District seat, said Wednesday he refused a $25 online donation from Razi Hashim, the executive director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.
Hashim said his donation was a personal contribution and not meant to be affiliated with the nonprofit group that employs him.
"I thought on a personal level, we could talk as two men, as people of God," Hashim said. "Jesus said to love your neighbor; we have similar teachings in Islam as well."...
"Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another but ruthless to the unbelievers" -- Qur'an 48:29.
Calvey, an attorney who helped prosecute terrorism suspects in the Iraqi court system, said he had no problem with the Muslim faith, but he could not support the council.
"I worked alongside Muslims every day who were fighting against terrorism," Calvey said.
Calvey said he would have no problem meeting with members of the council, if they left the organization.
"I haven't met with them, nor will I," Calvey said. "CAIR is the moral equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan. I wouldn't meet with them either."...

Thank those who serve our country
It is possible to be a good American and a good Muslim. More of one does not mean less of the other. Weaving American patriotic traditions into Muslim events will make this point loud and clear.
BY PARVEZ AHMED, JULY 9, 2010
Chaplain Abdul-Rasheed at ISNA
Over the July 4th weekend I was one of the speakers at the 47th Annual Convention of the Islamic Society of North America, the largest gathering of Muslims in North America. At their Community Service Luncheon I was seated next to Lieutenant Colonel Abdul-Rasheed Muhammad, the first Muslim chaplain in the US military. After some initial small talk I leaned over and thanked him for his service.
Chaplain Abdul-Rasheed with a wide grin accepted my thanks and then with sadness in his voice said that in his experience not too many Muslims extend such appreciation to our men and women in uniform. Some even question the Islamicity of being in the US army. This despite the fact that, according to American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Council, upwards of 15,000 Muslims serve in the US armed forces. Chaplain Abdul-Rasheed went on to say, “If America is worth being inhabited by Muslims, reaping her many benefits, then Muslims have a natural obligation to serve in her defense against those who choose to do harm to its citizens, property, or values.”
Extremists, both from within the Muslim community and outside, fail to grasp the importance and necessity of Muslims serving in the US armed forces. The American Family Association, a conservative Christian group, has published an article on its website calling for Muslims to be barred from military service.
American Muslims are sickened by the views of radicals like Anwar al Awlaki as much as they are alarmed by the anti-Muslim rhetoric loudly reverberating among the extreme right of American politics. However, simply expressing outrage is not enough. Collectively and individually American Muslims need to take concrete and meaningful steps that marginalize the views of radicals like Awlaki and also win the hearts and minds of those who stay silent when powerful forces align to marginalize the Muslim community.
One useful step is making a conscience effort to make overt gestures of patriotism even when such gestures are symbolic. Regardless of whether the men and women in uniform are Muslims or people of other faiths they all deserve our gratitude and appreciation. Showing that gratitude is not symbolic and does not undermine any advocacy against current US foreign policy and armed conflicts.
American Muslim events generally begin with the recitation of the Holy Quran. This can easily be followed with a Pledge of Allegiance or the singing of the National Anthem. A few organizations have been doing this despite the cynicism of the misguided few.
In 2001 when the US was preparing to invade Afghanistan, Taha Jabir Alwani then president of an institute that trains Islamic military chaplains, issued a fatwa (religious decree) that allowed Muslims to fight for the United States in Afghanistan. The fatwa also gave Muslims the option of refusing to fight on grounds of religious conscience. With the gathering danger of radicalization looming over the American Muslim community, a case can be made for a more clearly worded fatwa that encourages, instead of merely allowing, Muslims to serve in the US army.
The presence of American Muslim soldiers can be beneficial on many fronts. Besides being appropriately reflecting of our national diversity the presence of American Muslim soldiers can mitigate abusive incidents such as the ones at Abu Ghraib that justifiably deserve our condemnation. At a time when the American mission in Afghanistan and Iraq is not merely to win a conflict but also to win hearts and minds, American Muslims in the U.S. military can be a valuable bridge between the U.S. military and the Muslim world.
It is possible to be a good American and a good Muslim. More of one does not mean less of the other. Weaving American patriotic traditions into Muslim events will make this point loud and clear. Thanking our men and women in uniform is not just keeping up with finest traditions of being American but it is also authentically Islamic. God loves people who express their gratitude towards those who serve us. The men and women in the armed forces volunteer to lay their lives so that we can live free. Undoubtedly they deserve our thanks.
Professor Parvez Ahmed is a Fulbright Scholar and Associate Professor of Finance at the University of North Florida. He is also a frequent commentator on Islam and the American Muslim experience.
Thank Those who serve our Country…. an Islamist Insult !!!!
Those in the know and who understand the TRUE NATURE OF THE THREAT in regard to Political ISLAM will immediately have alarms go off by not only who is hosting the event, but by who its guest speakers are and who is in attendance. However, to understand this, one must understand JIHAD and the dualistic nature of Islam.
In reading this article, those unfamiliar with the dualistic nature of political Islam need to know; is for 14 centuries, there has been a perpetual call to JIHAD (war on non-Muslims) until all the world and their religions submit to Allah.
There were (3) major ways this was done until the advent of oil becoming a commodity worldwide.
(1) Was to wage violent Jihad as the Taliban & Al Qaida.
(2) Wage Jihad by the pen and the mouth (which, I believe this article does a good job of).
(3) Wage Jihad in the heart (e.g. to hate and despise the government you live under until it submits and to vote and act accordingly).
(4) Now we have what the Islamist call JIHAD with money or Sharia Compliant Finance, which are now being offered by AIG, HSBC, Citibank, UBS, Bank of America, DOW Jones, and others, of which all interest on these products must go to ISLAMIC CHARITIES ONLY and part of this is MANDATED to fund JIHAD.
NOTE: Of course there is the personal struggle we hear so much of in the west, however, this has virtually no authority within the Quran and is only about 3% of the verses which deal with JIHAD.
ISNA: or the Islamic Society of North America is host of the conference and is designated as a co-conspirator in the largest terrorism funding case in U.S. history.
Ingrid Mattson: (In Picture beside Chaplain Muhammad) President of ISNA, Obama’s inaugural prayer leader, Teaches the writing of Sayyid Qutb and Abul ‘Ala Mawdudi, Most radical writers of the Muslim Brotherhood as examples of “ways in which the Quran functions as sacred scripture in Muslim history and contemporary life.”
Mattson wrote in a book she published in 2002, “People of faith have a certain kind of solidarity with others of their faith community that transcends the basic rights and duties of citizenship.” In other words, Mattson implies that the Muslim identity transcends the American identity.
Parvez Ahmed: Supports Hamas & Hezbollah as well as convicted terrorist Sami Al-Arian, said the following when speaking to Foreign Ministers in Dubai after 2006 Port Deal fell thru: “Do not think about your contributions as donations. Think about it from the perspective of rate of return. The investment of $50 million will give you billions of dollars in return for fifty years,” “If a sufficiently Arab-friendly environment can be created in America to allow SHEIKS to buy up key U.S. assets.
Arab Press: “UAE Hamdan Okays Setting Up Endowment in U.S.”
All of these groups and individuals are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is to establish a (1) Sharia or Islamic law and (2) a worldwide caliphate. They propose to subvert and destroy America from within according to a previously secret document discovered in the early 1990’s titled “
ISLAMIST DOUBLE SPEAK
The Chaplain reply about not very many Muslims extending appreciation to our men and women in uniform may have its roots in the Quran and Sunna, the authoritative text of Islam. These exhort Muslim to not take non-believers as their friends, to not war against fellow Muslims with not believers (e.g. can’t fight against fellow Muslims, which the fatwa discussed below give them a way out…..double speak).
He also mentions defending America from those who choose to do harm to America’s citizens, property, and values. What I would like to know is have Muslims now claimed America as Muslim land, and the citizens he speaks of are Muslim Citizens as Obama has now said we are a majority Muslim nation? So when he speaks of protecting America’s citizens, does this only apply to Muslims? Because per the Quran a non-Muslim or infidel has no rights and is considered the lowest form of life and not considered human. Is this more Islamist double speak and can we get clarity on the issue?
While there are a great many peaceful Muslim in America, they are because they are what I call MINO’s or Muslims in Name Only. I do so because to follow the Quran and Sunna in a fundamental fashion and emulate Muhammad as prescribed, we would have over 2.5 million terrorist in America. I agree most Muslims are peaceful, however the according to a brief by form Director of the CIA, James Woolsey, I attended about a week and a half ago approximately 2% of the worlds Muslims are Radical, however they control about 90% of the worlds Mosques and institutions. In other words the silent majority is irrelevant, and the radicals or more appropriately the fundamentalist are in charge.
The one Main question we in the west need to ask; where is this vast majority of peaceful patriotic Muslims? Why is there silence so deafening? Where is their condemnation of the many terrorist acts every day? Or are they not speaking against their fellow Muslim because they are waging Jihad in their hearts per the Quran?
The Chaplain, in my opinion implements double speak saying “to make overt gestures of patriotism even when such gestures are symbolic”. Further, he essentially says that if you show gratitude in a way which is not symbolic…”it does NOT undermine advocacy against U.S. policy and armed conflicts”. You must understand that in Islam taqiyya (holy deception) is allowed and the fact he is addressing a Muslim audience, is this for instruction purposes?
The Chaplain, states that recitation by the Holy Quran can easily be followed by the Pledge of Allegiance or the National Anthem, however this is not followed by mainstream Muslim Groups, as he stated. It was not done at this event, and to do so is swearing Allegiance to a man made republic/form of government and a Christian god, both of which are against the many versus in the Quran. He does mention that some Muslim do this… but fails to mention which groups.
In regard to the Fatwa it is clearly gives Muslims the right to not fight their fellow Muslims worded in a way that is palatable to those in the west.
The Chaplain then goes on to say that “the case can be made for a more clearly worded FATWA that encourages, instead of merely allowing, Muslims to serve in the US army”. This statement does not address the real issue is can a Muslim fight a fellow foreign Muslim without becoming an apostate per the Quran.
The Chaplain believes having Muslim Soldiers to be beneficial in the above statements reminds me of the same mantra CAIR used to work their way into conducting sensitivity training to our federal and local law enforcements. They were found to be working both sides. Aiding Hamas on the one hand and deceiving our law enforcement and promoting policies which diminished their effectiveness to protect Americans form the terrorist threat.
Lastly, Parvez Ahmed, makes the statement “thanking men and women in uniform is authentically Islamic… REALLY… since America was not present at the inception of Islam and Islamic Law or Sharia calls for the destruction of all other forms of government and man mad laws I am confused.
It is true to thank those fighting Jihad is authentically Islamic… Does he use taqiyya here separating out the American Tradition and thanking those who fight??? I believe he answers with the next sentence… just replace or substitute another possible meaning if you were trying to deceive and see what you come up with.
This is one possible meaning: “God (Allah) loves people who express the gratitude towards those (Jihadist?) who serve us (Muslims?)”.
Bottom line… associations and words do have meanings and you need to understand the doctrines of Islam and Sharia to get a true read on our Islamist friends meanings.
Randy McDaniels ACT for America – Jacksonville Chapter www.actjacksonville.com
Monday, July 5, 2010
In light of the mission in which we are all engaged in defense of our nation, we have all decided to address our enemies and train and educate ourselves and Americans at all levels of our society to the nature of this threat - primarily from the Islamic Movement, as well as the nation states which seek our destruction (too many to list here).
As we reflect on this past weekend, I believe it is critical to remember the other half of our mission - ensuring we and those we serve understand the true nature of who we are as Americans. Yesterday, July 4th, marks the 234th anniversary of the creation of the most powerful system of governance the world has ever known - and the most brilliant. America is the longest standing Constitutional Republic in the world. The men who signed the Declaration of Independence not only dissolved their allegiance to the British Crown, but made clear that it is our Creator who has given us our rights as human beings - Rights that can never be infringed upon by another man or government. Our government was created to secure our rights. The Founders knew the risks and pledged their lives, their fortunes and their Sacred Honor when they signed the Declaration. The principles defined in the Declaration were powerful enough to cause the signers representing the original 13 states to be persecuted for having the courage to do so. As history has taught us, this is always the price of standing up for the truth.
I reflect on this because I want to again challenge and encourage all of you to be bold in the endeavor in which we are all engaged. Give no quarter and take no quarter. Toughen your minds, your hearts and your bodies for what lies ahead. A time is coming where one or more of us will meet hardship and struggle. Some of you already have. This may come in the form of personal battles, professional costs, or a struggle for your very soul. Know that the same God who blessed this nation to be the beacon of liberty for all the world is the same God who desires to be there for you personally. Also remember there is an Enemy who seeks to destroy our efforts and separate us from each other. We must be on guard for strife among our ranks and we must grow in trust of one another. This is of utmost importance to our calling. Remember the work we are doing has a higher purpose, and, just like our Founders, this is a long road we are on. However, it is the one we are called to be on. The joy comes from being confident we are doing the right thing, for the right reason, and are blessed by the God who Divinely secured this nation we now defend.
Please take a moment to reflect on your place in this battle and seek to better understand what it is you are called to do within the team. Each one of us must be solid and complete individually before we can offer ourselves fully to this effort. I am proud to be a part of this and am grateful for whatever I can add to our victory.
God bless you all and God Bless these United States of America.
With great respect and admiration for all of you,
The Nature of the Threat
The war which we fight is primarily defined by the enemy as INFORMATION WARFARE, which manifests itself in our system as political warfare, influence operations, and subversion of our foundational institutions – political, educational, religious, and media. Yet, our entire government structure is focused on the kinetic war – shootings/bombings etc, and planned acts of terror. We are not only NOT winning in the information battle-space, we are not engaged in that space because we do not understand it is the enemy’s self-identified Main Focus of Effort. Where we do attempt to engage in the information battle-space, we are off the mark because we have not stopped to learn the enemy doctrine. Jihadi plans for violence here in the U.S., as well as the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, are important to the enemy, but secondary to the Information Warfare. Our lack of understanding this fundamental truth cripples our ability to engage the enemy where he fights his main battle.
Al Qaeda and other violent jihadi groups fight to (1) implement Islamic Law and (2) re-establish the Islamic Caliphate. The Information War in the West is driven by front groups posing as peaceful Muslim community organizations, led by the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). The MB was created in
Islamic Law is real law. It is the basis for constitutions in Muslim nations around the world. In Islam, obedience to the law is more important than one's own personal conscience/belief structure. There is no Islamic Law that does not require Jihad as "warfare against non-Muslims to establish the religion” until all the world is claimed for Islam. Since the creation of Islam, there has never been any other definition of “Jihad” in Islamic Law. Under Islamic Law, non-Muslims must ultimately convert or submit to Islam, or be killed. The entire world is either Dar al-Islam (house of Islam) or Dar al-Harb (house of war), and, therefore, Jihad is a permanent state until all the world is claimed for Islam. Current Islamic sources teach that Islamic Law is diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution. This is not a First Amendment issue, and it is NOT a “religious” issue. The enemy seeks to impose foreign law (Shari’ah) in the United States challenging Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution which states “The Constitution shall be the supreme law of the land.”
MB organizations conduct outreach to the government, law enforcement, media, religious community, and others for one reason - to subvert them in furtherance of their objective - implementation of Islamic Law. Current publications of Islamic Law clearly allow for “obligatory lying” to non-Muslims when the objective is obligatory – Jihad for example. Therefore, when studying this issue, it is critical to read published law written by Muslim authorities, for the benefit of Muslim audiences. In this information war, a principle goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to keep the West from studying authoritative Islamic Law – the stated doctrine used by both the violent jihadis (Al Qaeda et al), and the subversive organizations led by the Muslim Brotherhood. This doctrine is taught at the first grade level across the Middle East, and in English in U.S. Islamic Schools and Mosques. Individuals charged with duties in the National Security realm, especially the leadership, who have sworn an oath to the Constitution, must undertake a concerted effort to learn and understand the factual basis of the threat doctrine that includes a self-proclaimed reliance on Islamic Law. Arguably, failure to do so makes the development of a counter-strategy impossible and, notably constitutes malfeasance on the part of the National Security professionals.
