TCPJ Alert – “Strong and Free” Mailers Highly Suspect, Be Very Careful

Voters need to watch their mailboxes – and their backs.  Reported yesterday, an unregistered PAC (political action committee) with no website or named individuals, calling itself “Strong and Free Tennessee,” is sending out mailers endorsing candidates against conservatives who are running for the Republican State Executive Committee (SEC).

The SEC members run the state’s Republican party. So it makes perfect sense that Tennessee’s establishment Republicans and alleged conservatives (like those pictured) that collaborate with them do not want to lose control of the state party.

The Jackson Press has asked a very logical question: “Why would a PAC endorse candidates for the SEC’s unpaid committee seats and yet attempt to hide itself? Did the PAC hide its origins on purpose or out of ignorance of the law?”

So far though, the address of the senders has been confirmed. Clues about who is sending the mailers are everywhere and are being actively pursued as are the suspected regulatory violations.

Study the picture postcard carefully. Running as a conservative with Haslam by your side? And you want voters to believe you are a conservative? Seriously?

Stay tuned.


Newsletter #136 – Allah Says You Cannot Break Ranks With Other Muslims (part 2 of 2)

“Asalaam Alaykum, it’s your Muslim boy scout calling.”

Will Mwafaq Aljabbary’s fellow Kurd and mosque board member, Fadi Ezzeir help to get him votes for the Tennessee State Senate District 21 Republican seat?

As late as 2009, Ezzeir served as the President of the Nashville chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS). In 2004 the Secretary-General of the MAS acknowledged that it had been founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Ezzeir is listed as the Executive Director of the Scouting Department of the Muslim American Society (MAS). In 2002, he organized the first Islamic boy scout troop in Nashville. In 2006 Ezzeir used the Muslim boy scout troop to make voter calls to other Muslims using a MAS script.   

boy scouts                 

Did the script have the boy scouts tell their co-religionists that Allah says they can only vote for another Muslim?

The kids know what’s in their Islamic school textbook “What Islam Is All About”

 “Allah says in this ayah [verse in the Quran] not to take non-Muslims as protectors. (3:118,4:144) Only fellow Muslims you can rely on should have authority or power over you.  Because in the end, a non-Muslim who knows you, and who doesn’t accept Islam, is a rebel against Allah’s way of life and will harm you in the end or try to make you like him or her.

Republican candidate Aljabbary’s other mosque member Drost Kokoye, is all about identity politics and says, “I really don’t even like being called an American.” She was even willing to abet voter registration fraud.

Newsletter 135# – Allah Says You Cannot Break Ranks With Other Muslims (part 1 of 2)

 

Also known as identity politics for Muslims:

aljabbary

 

So here’s what this Kurdish Muslim is saying:

Vote for Aljabbary because he is one of us, a Kurd. It doesn’t matter what he says he will or won’t do. Once he is elected he will ALWAYS put Muslim needs first. He has to because that is what Allah commands him to do and he is a very observant Muslim. Otherwise he would not have been the president of his mosque.

We don’t care whether he will represent anyone else that lives in our district. Catholic Charities brought us Kurds to Nashville and we want more of us here. Aljabbary has lots of experience in refugee resettlement, and if, elected, he could help bring more of us! This is how we will have the kind of political power we still don’t have in our real homeland. Besides, we are commanded to bring this political jihad to the West.


Newsletter #134 – A Leopard Doesn’t Change Its Spots

Predictably, CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) is standing in defense of Hamas using civilians as human shields as Israel ….

Predictably, the Executive Director of the pro-Palestinian D.C. think tank, the Jerusalem Fund/Palestine Center, when asked directly, will not answer the simple yes/no question:

            “Is Hamas a terrorist organization?”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgeeXlLyKvM

mqdefault

CAIR was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Association for Palestine, which was created to promote and raise money for Hamas in the U.S. Federal prosecutors have established ample evidence tying CAIR to Hamas. In 1994 CAIR Director Nihad Awad publicly declared his support for Hamas.

The Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center was founded by Hisham Sharabi who described Hamas as “the true fida’i (self-sacrifice) resistance in Palestine since the outbreak of the Palestinian intifada.” In 2003 he said:

 “In the face of relentless Israeli force, the only weapon the helpless and desperate have is to fling their bodies against the beast.  Suicide bombings are no longer the lone act of desperate fanatics, but have become a conscious weapon of resistance and war.  The culture of death and self-sacrifice is spreading in many Arab and Muslim countries.”

Jerusalem Fund Chairman is Subhi Ali from Waverly, Tennessee. He joined the Jerusalem Fund in 2000, became Vice-President in 2004 serving alongside Sharabi and then became President of the Board in 2005, a position he still retains. The Jerusalem Fund campaigns for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. This is a campaign, the intent of which is widely recognized, to try and destroy the state of Israel.

Subhi Ali is the father of former Haslam appointee, sharia finance specialist, Samar Ali.

ECD Commissioner Bill Hagerty admitted publicly that Subhi Ali called him and asked him to look at Samar’s resume which includes work done on behalf of the Jerusalem Fund. After Subhi’s phone call, Haggerty hired Samar. Sounds like Haggerty knows Subhi Ali and his family pretty well. Samar’s resume includes work done on behalf of the Jerusalem Fund.

Shortly after Samar’s hiring, questions were raised about why the Haslam administration hired a sharia finance specialist but redacted these credentials from information about her that was released to the public.

*********

Subhi Ali immigrated from the West Bank town of Ramallah. As Samar says, “I will always be Arab and I will always be American and I will always be Muslim.” She also says that “My parents always taught us to never forget where we came from and to never forget where we are now.”

Now pro-Hamas rallies in Tennessee with Muslim organizations are spreading Jew-hatred. Given the information above, we shouldn’t be surprise


Newsletter #133 – Jew Hatred Unites Tennessee Muslims

The sight of the ummah demonstrating in support of Hamas terrorists gave ACO (Muslim American Center for Outreach) Director, Remziya Suleyman, “chills down my spine! MashAllah” (expressing joy, appreciation to Allah)

The recent Nashville demonstration was led by AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) member and MYNT (Muslim Youth Navigating TN) organizer, Drost Kokoye who has no trouble hiding her Jew-hatred even creating events for this purpose.

Drost Kokoye

 

Both Suleyman and Kokoye are members of TN Senate District’s 21 candidate Aljabbary/Mohammed’s Kurdish mosque, the Salahadeen Center. (FYI Aljabbary was an original supporter of AMAC.) Did the Hamas supporters invite their Family of Abraham and Clergy for Tolerance friends to rally with them for the terrorists?

In Knoxville, Islamic school Annoor Academy teacher Ghada Ayesh also demonstrated in support of Hamas. The school actively works to raise jihadis and uses a textbook that teaches its students only negative and hateful information about Jews (and Christians).

 

ayesh

Rafiq Mahdi, the “unofficial” imam in Knoxville says that most Muslims do not see Hamas as a terrorist organization because these jihadis consider that they are following the example of Mohammed. Also, Islamic sharia law says that all Muslims are supposed to support jihad with their zakat (charity).

University of Tennessee’s hate group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) also marched in support of Hamas.

Helping to reinforce the Jew hatred that they are taught, student leader Ahmad Abuleil pictured above hosted a showing of the virulently anti-Israel, anti-IDF propaganda film “5 Broken Cameras” to the Roots program, a program designed to help Knoxville’s Muslims become ever more committed to following the example of Mohammed.

Drost and friends will try to dupe the pubic again about the “religion of peace” at the pro-Hamas rally this Saturday, July 26th at Miller Park in Chattanooga. Once again, they have timed the rally to coincide with their 4:00 prayer. What an irony, praying for jihad terrorists!

Since they are whipping up Jew-hatred, Tennessee’s Jews may need extra protection from law enforcement. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation 2013 Hate Crime report documents that sadly, anti-Jewish hate crimes top the list again.

Is this what we want for Tennessee?

 

 


Newsletter #132 – Haslam and Aljabbary/Mohammed: Made For Each Other

Aljabbary/Mohammed is running in the Republican primary for Tennessee Senate District 21 in Davidson County (Nashville), the seat previously held by Democrat Douglas Henry for over 40 years.   Haslam has more in common with him than he has with our conservative legislators.

*******

Aljabbary’s website says he has “experience in refugee resettlement and welfare laws.”

Haslam’s director of legislation, Leslie Hafner is the business partner of Chamber of Commerce lobbyist David McMahan. Chambers of Commerce like the Nashville and US Chamber support refugee resettlement for the exploitation of ‘serf’ labor from other countries while US citizens line up for work. Haslam also continues to explore expanding access to Medicaid (TennCare) in Tennessee, something else the TN Chamber of Commerce supports.

*******

Aljabbary is a Kurdish Muslim who used to be president of his mosque. He follows the Quran and the Sunna of Mohammed. Memphis Islamic Center’s Sheikh Yasir Qadhi, described by the New York Times as “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam,” says that the Quran “destroys” American capitalism.

Haslam says he is concerned about income inequality and that “Republicans should not deny evidence that wealth is being spread unevenly or write off such concerns as Democratic propaganda.”

*******

Aljabbary was an original supporter of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC).

Haslam and Dept. of Safety Commissioner Gibbons supported the formation of AMAC.

*******

Activists from Aljabbrary’s mosque have their offices in the building owned by amnesty supporting organization, Conexion Americas.

Haslam is working toreelect pro-amnesty, our supposedly conservative senator, Lamar Alexander.

*******

Aljabbary’s Quran tells Muslims not to take non-Muslims for their patrons or protectors. The former president of the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Society of North America says this means that “It is the duty of Muslims to patronize Muslims.” It probably also means that Muslims in Aljabbary’s district will vote in the Republican primary for the first time.

Haslam also supports crossover voting; he admits it helped him get elected also.

*******

Aljabbary voted Democrat in the past. He has voted Republican only one time. State Executive Committee (SEC) member Robert Duvall had to vouch for Aljabbary’s Republican credentials so he could be a Republican candidate. Robert Duvall is seeking reelection to his SEC seat in Aljabbary’s district. Political trade?

Seem like Haslam has more in common with him than with our real conservative legislators.


Newsletter #131 – Using Voter Registration Fraud to Help Aljabbary/Mohammed Get Elected?

Tennessee’s voter registration forms are pretty straightforward when it comes to providing truthful information. Anything else is typically called fraud.

The Davidson County and Rutherford County Election Commissions may need to contact Drost and find out where she was registering people to vote and review the applications she solicited. Drost routinely makes her hatred of Jews and Israel publicly known. She should not, however, be permitted to abuse the voter registration process in this manner.

Alternatively, they Election Commissions could contact Drost’s supervisor, Remziya Suleyman, Director of the Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO).

As she says, “I realised he is from Palestine but has to claim Israel ‘for his own good.’ Actually, he has to claim Israel because according to his official documentation of country of birth, it says Israel.

Anyone willing to report her?

Newsletter #130 – Partnering for Islam (part 3 of 3)

Nashville’s Islamists and Hispanics Working Together For Change

Renata Soto and her alliance with the Islamists is especially interesting. Soto’s Nolensville Road Casa Azafran, a community center offering a variety of programming directed at Nashville’s immigrant communities, describes itself as the “Gateway to Nashville’s International District.” The building allocates space to political organizations that see themselves aligned against the big-bad-bigoted racists who oppose things like illegal immigration, open borders and the encroachment of sharia-like law in the public domain.

Suleyman’s organization, the Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO), the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) and TIRRC (TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition) have offices in Casa Azafran. These three organizations in particular are heavily cross-pollinated with individuals that have served interchangeably on each organization.

JFON (Justice For Our Neighbors) is also housed at Casa Azafran. JFON provides legal services for immigrants including “unaccompanied alien children” (UAC) like those currently surging the border. JFON was started by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) that has its own close relationships with Muslim Brotherhood affiliate organizations. (See also the United Methodist building in DC that they comfortably share with the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Society of North America).

Casa Azafran is a gigantic 28,800 square feet! It’s newest tenant is the Metro Nashville Public School’s Pre-K hub set to open at the start of the 2014 school year. Metro taxpayer’s are spending a minimum of $1.9 million of public money in construction and capital improvements to the building which is privately owned by Conexion Americas.   This does not include money that will be paid in lease expenses. Your tax dollars at work.

remziya with durbin and congress cooper

Pro-amnesty Tennessee Rep. Jim Cooper and Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, who do not think the illegals surging at the border should be deported. They are big supporters of Casa Azafran, Islamists and open border groups like TIRRC. Does this mean that they are looking at Casa Azafran as an emergency shelter for them?

Think of the dawa (Islamic proselytizing) opportunities! Don’t forget that AMAC is now a trained ING affiliate whose mission is to educate the non-Muslim public school students about Islam. AMAC board member Kamel Daouk’s wife, originally from Mexico works to convert members of the Hispanic community. Daouk himself served as president of the Islamic Center of Nashville in 2012 and was an officer in the Olive Tree Education Islamic propaganda organization that promoted writings by Anwar Al Awlaki, a top recruiter for al-Qaeda.

***************

Who knows how the Metro Pre-K hub will evolve; Aljabbary/Mohammed might get his publicly funded Islamic school after all. U.S. Rep. Andre Carson, a Muslim convert agrees that public schools should be like madrassas (Islamic schools). But consider that the Minnesota charter school, the TiZa Academy, was sued into bankruptcy by the ACLU for violating the Establishment clause of the Constitution.  TiZa made religious accommodations for the predominantly Muslim student population, thereby effectively turning the school into an Islamic madrassa.

Should Metro Schools be investing public money in a privately held political building? Will the students’ parents be told that they might get serving of dawa with their lunch? Maybe.

Why Nashville Kurds and Turks Find Common Ground

One would imagine that for Nolensville Academy’s Kurdish Muslim board members, Mohammed Kokoy, Ahmad Brifkani and Mwafaq Mohammed (aka, Aljabbary/Mohammed), the alliance with Gulen followers is acceptable and reflective of what is happening in their homeland.

Turkey is moving away from secularism and working politically to improve relations with Muslim majority countries, most notably Syria and Iran.  For example, as Turkey revives its identify as a religiously Islamic country, it was reported that Sunni Islam religious classes are compulsory in the public schools.

Nashville’s Kurds likely support  Erdogan’s claim that he supports an independent Iraqi Kurdistan, the place which many of Nashville’s Kurds still refer to as their real home.

Erdogan permitted Hamas to operate out of Turkey to organize the recent abduction of the three Israeli teenagers who were murdered. Why do these Nashville Kurds support Erdogan who has given sanction to Hamas? Is it a reflection of their anti-Semitism?

No doubt that Turkey’s political posture towards Israel appeals to Nashville Kurds like Drost Kokoye who regularly tweets out her Jew hatred here and here. Kokoye is a Jew-hating agitator that attends Aljabbary/Mohammed’s mosque and advises Muslim youth through MYNT. (See video here.)

Erdogan embraces the Muslim Brotherhood whose organizations and   ideology are being actively promoted by Tennessee Islamists and Erdogan’s Islamizing of Turkey. Tennessee’s Islamists share Erdogan’s vision for a dominant world Islamic power under sharia law.

Kurdish Muslim Kasar Abdulla (deep in the Islamist politics of Tennessee, here and here, also a member of Aljabbary/Mohammed’s mosque where he served as president in 2010), recently traveled to Turkey with fellow Nashville YWCA board members Tom Negri (director Nashville’s Human Relations Commission) and Pat Shea (President and CEO YWCA). Renata Soto, YWCA honoree and founder of Conexion Americas and Casa Azafran, was also on the trip.

Do the traveling Islamic apologists understand what happens to individual freedoms and women in particular, as Turkey shifts towards sharia under Erdogan? Does Tom Negri understand that when Islamists refer to “human rights” they mean the Cairo Declaration of Human Rightswhich says that human rights are defined by sharia law?Dominated by patriarchal doctrine the Cairo Declaration’s sharia-centric rights will always deny equal rights to non-Muslims as well as Muslim women. Newsletter #96and #67.

Does Pat Shea know that women in Kasar’s mosque have publicly complained about their second class status in Nashville mosques?

Why do Nashville apologists listen to Islamists like Remziya Suleyman to educate them about human rights under sharia law when she openly admitted that she “never knew the concept of sharia?”

TN Senate Candidate Mwafaq Aljabbary (aka Mwafaq Mohammed), Wants Islamic Charter School

If elected, TN Senate District 21 candidate Mwafaq Aljabbary /Mohammed would fit right in with the Republican goal of more publicly funded charter schools. In fact, he tried to help start one himself.

In 2013, the Nolensville Academy for Math and Science had their application denied by Metro Nashville schools for the fourth time. Ismail Fidan is the lead applicant; Aljabbary/Mohammed is listed as a board member.

The Nolensville Academy’s “Letter of Intent” states that the majority of the students it planned to serve are from “minority-immigrant groups living in and around the Nolensville area.” It seems counter-intuitive to segregate “minority-immigrant” groups from the opportunity to integrate and assimilate in the more inclusive Metro Nashville school population. (read more about the proposed school here and here.)

Community agitators from Aljabbary/Mohammed’s mosque like Remziya Suleyman and AMAC members, (American Muslim Advisory Council), go to great lengths to keep Muslim youth separated from the mainstream American student experience. Muslim-centric “alternative proms,” high school Muslim Student Associations and Muslim scholastic competitions, are just what Muhammed prescribed:

“The Holy Qur’an declares that a believer should never prefer a non-Muslim over a Muslim. If a person did so, then they would put themselves in danger of rejecting their Iman. The Blessed Prophet once remarked that, “Whoever spends forty days with a people becomes like them.” Therefore we must realize that it is better to be with those who believe as we do.”

(p.365, “What Islam Is All About” – textbook used in Knoxville’s Annoor Academy private Islamic school).

Suleyman describesthis self-imposed separation as “otherness” and insists that it is a result of discrimination by racists and Islamophobes rather than a reflection of Quranic doctrine.

Aljabbary/Mohammed supports a publicly-funded Islamic school. Is this how we should spend our tax dollars?
