They Don't CAIR Much for Free Debate
By David J. Rusin

Islamists cannot tolerate open discussion of their faith and those who act in its name. We witness this phenomenon time and again from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which increasingly forgoes combat in the arena of ideas, preferring instead to intimidate or litigate opponents of the Islamist agenda into silence.

The latest example comes in response to the Clarion Fund distributing twenty-eight million DVDs of
Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West via direct mail and newspaper supplements in September. The film exposes the teachings and consequences of Islamic extremism through media footage and commentary from experts, including Middle East Forum director Daniel Pipes.

U.S. Treasury reports increased terrorist funds blocked in the U.S.

The U.S. Treasury has released its latest Report to Congress on Assets in the United States of Terrorist Countries and International Terrorism Program Designees (known are Terrorist Assets Report or TAR).

The amount of blocked funds pertaining to international terrorist organizations and individuals, totaled over $20.7 million in 2007, compared to $16.4 million in 2006. Of that, over $11.3 million constituted assets of Al Qaeda, an increase of almost 46 percent over the level blocked as of the end of 2006.

In May 2008, the U.N. Monitoring Team reported that $85 million of Al Qaeda related funds had been frozen worldwide by 36 countries.

According to the U.S. Treasury, “The increase in blocked terrorist organization assets in 2007 is due to new or additional blockings, interest paid on blocked funds, and increased share price on certain blocked securities.”

As of December 31, 2007, a total of 478 individuals and entities had been identified or designated and remain listed as “Specially Designated Global Terrorists”, including 42 organizations or groups designated as Foreign Terrorist Organizations by the Department of State.  NOTE: For details, download the .pdf report

Muslim Day Parade
New York City, October 12, 2008

The website Atlas Shrugs contains pictures, video and commentary from therecent Muslim Day Parade in New York City.

There you will see pictures and video of Muslims carrying an American flag –with the stars in the box replaced by the Islamic star and crescent.

You will see New York City police officers, in uniform and apparently on duty,stopping to pray.

You will see an intense confrontation between a Muslim and a Jewish woman. TheMuslim crosses a barrier to confront the woman, eventually calling her a“whore.”

These are just a few examples of the troubling and unsettling pictures, videoand commentary. We caution you -- there is some profanity and at times thescenes are intense.

The person covering the parade states:

“I have been covering these things for three years now and as I have recentlysaid, there has been a palpable change. It is getting uglier, more aggressive -violent even.”

Political Dhimmitude At Its Worst

Buried in today’s Wall Street Journal and the New York Times was a news item trumpeting a report entitled: “Changing Course: A New Direction for U.S. Relations with the Muslim World”. The ‘gray lady’ rendition was headlined: “Report Seeks Engagement With Muslims By Diplomacy.”   According to the Times:  

The report was produced by 34 leaders drawn from religious, business, military, foreign policy, academic, foundation and nonprofit circles. The group included Democrats like Madeleine K. Albright, who was Secretary of State under President Bill Clinton, and two former Republican congressmen, Vin Weber and Steve Bartlett., Thomas Dine, a former executive director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and Ingrid Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America. The members were selected by the sponsoring organizations, Search for Common Ground and the Consensus Building Institute, which both promote nonviolent conflict resolution.
