When Islamists like former ACO (American Center for Outreach) director Remziya Suleyman tells you how she also reveres Jesus, most apologist Christians (especially those Family of Abraham fanatics) breathe the interfaith “they are just like us” sigh of relief.
The Muslim Brotherhood also “loves Jesus”
Last year, the MSA (Muslim Students Association) at East Tennessee State University put on a program called “Jesus in Islam”:
“We did a couple of lectures on campus last year,” Nimer [MSA President], said. “One was ‘Jesus in Islam.’ We talked about the misconceptions people have because a lot of people think we don’t believe in Jesus. We do, we love him, we respect him and we follow his teachings.”
Did the MSA read where the Quran says we are all supposedly Muslims which is why they refer to converts as “reverts”? According to the Quran, “Esa,” is Jesus’ real name because Jesus was a Muslim, he was not crucified and did not die on the cross but instead, ascended to Allah and anyone claiming otherwise is a liar, so when Jesus returns, he will “be a witness against Jews and Christians for believing in his death.” (4:157-159)
Did the MSA inform attendees that the hadith (traditions and sayings of Muhammad) say that when Jesus comes back, he goes on a pilgrimage to Mecca, he breaks the cross, kills the pig, does away with the “jizyah” (tax on Jews and Christians) and helps destroy Christianity once and for all?
“He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam.”
A Nashville Islamist tells Christians the truth if they will only hear it
In 1999 Awadh Binhazim, former Austin CAIR chapter leader and former board member at the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN), proselytized Islam in Nashville through his Olive Tree Education project. Among Islamists operating in Tennessee, he was one of the least deceptive. While serving as the Vanderbilt Muslim chaplain, he admitted that Islam commands death for homosexuality, that Islam is not a matter of personal opinion but whatever Allah (as delivered by Mohammed) decreed. He lectured Islam’s supremacist belief regarding what Muslims believe about the Gospel:
“When Muslims say they believe in the Ingil, the Gospel and they believe in the Torah, and they believe in the Psalms, they qualify. They believe that there has been a change in the text of the Torah and the Gospel. Therefore, originality was lost…Authenticity was lost. And Muslis regard this to be a deliberate change by corrupt priests of the time. They distorted the word of God and eliminated the original Hebrew and Aramaic versions of their scriptures.”
Binhazim also publicized the writings by al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki and senior Muslim Brotherhood leader and terrorism financing unindicted co-conspirator Jamal Badawi through his Olive Tree Education website:
Daoud Abudiab, founder of the Tennessee Faith and Culture Center which will be hosting an Islamophobia conference in September, partnered in dawa (proselytizing) with Binhazim.
Knoxville’s Anoor Academy textbook also teaches about Christians
Binhazim’s belief in the supremacy of Islam is also reflected in the textbook “What Islam Is All About” used at the private Islamic school in Knoxville. The textbook teaches the students this about Christians:
p.187 – “So, although the Christians and Jews may make a big noise about following Prophet Ibrahim, in fact, neither of them do. Prophet Ibrahim fulfilled Allah’s commands, the Jews don’t even follow half of what their corrupted books say. The Christians don’t follow anything except what their philosophers and priests make up from time to time.”
p.188 – “Prophet Ibrahim told people to do good and he forbade the wrong. Many ‘religious’ and ‘non-religious’ Jews and Christians lead such decadent and immoral lives that lying, alcohol, nudity, pronography, racism, foul language, pre-marital sex, homosexuality and everything else are accepted in their society, churches and synagogues. Just turn on the television in any Jewish or Christian community and see what’s ‘normal.’”
Quoting passages from the Quran, page 282 mocks Christians saying, “[w]hat does Allah say about all this nonsense that the Christian religion teaches?” and claims that Paul’s doctrines are false.
Other pages in the textbook are devoted to convincing the students that it’s not a good idea to have Christian friends but if for some reason they do only become friends to fulfill the duty to convert them to Islam.
ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America), another Muslim Brotherhood organization, uses “we love Jesus” for their dawa but conceals that the Quran says Muhammad revealed the Ingil (Gospel) to “Esa” (Jesus) because he was a Muslim. Exactly what these kids are being taught:
On Friday, July 24, 2015, when police in Chattanooga were escorting the funeral procession for Marine Staff Sgt. David Wyatt to the Chattanooga National Cemetery, some Baptists and their children attended prayers at the the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga, the jihad murderer’s mosque, to “…show them that we love them.”
The Christian women, who attended and brought their daughters, all wore headscarves. They “…asked that their church not be identified because not everyone was in agreement with them visiting, said they were struck by how similar the service was to the Christian messages they are used to hearing.”
The imam didn’t talk about the murders but for the benefit of a dawa opportunity did talk about the basics of Islam. This guy knows ignorant dhimmi Christians when he sees them.
The child of communist sympathizers comes to Nashville
Hedy Weinberg has served as the Executive Director of the TN-ACLU since 1984. She came to Nashville from her native Chicago with her husband Dan Cornfield, a sociology professor at Vanderbilt University.
Hedy’s father, Arthur Weinberg, was a Chicago historian and author. His obituary says that he served as president of the socialist Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) organization. Also known as the “Wobblies,” the IWW was a radical labor union started in Chicago in the early 1900’s dedicated to opposing capitalism (which may explain why members migrated to the Communist party once the Wobblies’ influence started to decline). ACLU founding member and Executive Director, Roger Baldwin was also a member of the Wobblies.
Arthur Weinberg, who described himself as a “philosophical anarchist,” allied with Emma Goldman, a central figure in the global anarchist movement. He attended Goldman’s funeral and afterwards, reported details of the event for the “Project,” an initiative to collect, catalogue and publish her writings.
Hedy’s mother, Lila Weinberg, also knew Goldman and claimed she knew Goldman’s lover, Ben Reitman, “better than his daughters did.”
When you look at Hedy Weinberg’s genealogy, the ACLU is a natural fit for her. But
Weinberg profiles more like the establishment whose values and morality she so loudly claims to oppose.
Never one to avoid hypocrisy, Weinberg moralizes comfortably from an expensive Green Hills neighborhood, in a $400,000 plus home located a short ride from the expensive private school her daughter attended. Her daughter also attended an expensive private college.
Hedy is a member of The Temple, a Jewish congregation in Nashville that takes its “politics as religion” seriously, both as a leading TNT congregation and as a supporter of the red-green alliance. In a show of his leftist bona fides, senior rabbi, Mark Schiftan employed as his personal secretary Kathleen Smietana, wife of former Tennessean reporter and Islamist apologist Bob Smietana. Then, aping the freedom bus riders, the rabbi took his congregation to the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.
Likewise predictable and equally pathetic, Hedy has molded her only child into a mini-me. Hannah Cornfield’s resume includes working as an Obama field organizer, tweeting out support for the virulently anti-Israel Jewish Voice for Peace and the more typical elitist white socialist anti-capitalist messages.
Yes Hannah, the same capitalist structure that enabled your parents to send you to an expensive private school and expensive private college.
Hedy teaches community organizing and focuses her efforts on high school students who even have their own youth activist handbook. Her husband, Dan Cornfield, a Vanderbilt University teacher, leads workshops like “Becoming a Change Agent,” at the Highlander Center for Research & Education, for college age students.
“He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”
The Highlander Center
In 1932, Myles Horton, co-founded and served as director of the Highlander Folk School. First located in Monteagle, Tennessee the school was shut down by the state. The school was renamed the Highlander Research and Education Center, moved to Knoxville and in 1971 made one last move to New Market, Tennessee where it is located today. The school’s founders modeled Highlander after socialist training centers they visited in Denmark.
Horton believed that the Appalachian poor were being taken advantage of by the wealthy capitalist elites. Anti-capitalism and Horton’s experience helping labor to unionize and strike, expanded his ideas about “social justice” and his desire to create radical activists who would change the social, economic and political order of the South.
Highlander has worked to imbed socialist ideology and a resistance-to-the-status-quo in the most impressionable and accessible participants – the college-age young adult who Alinsky claimed only wanted to reject the middle-class lifestyle their parents had worked to achieve and which supported the comfortable lifestyles and college tuitions of these young Alinsky radicals. These were the change-agents-in-waiting that Alinsky said were looking for “a way of life that has some meaning or sense.”
Transforming Nashville in their image?
Hedy and her husband are recognized supporters of Highlander and have relied on the same tactics taught there in helping to launch “Nashville For All of Us” and “Nashville Next” discussed in part 4. They promote these community-based organizing projects that promise to bring social salvation to all after the existing power base is destroyed and the economic and social relationships are re-ordered.
Alinsky wrote in Rules for Radicals, that “[t]he organizer is in a true sense reaching for the highest level for which man can reach – to create, to be a ‘great creator,’ to play God.”
If Bill Gibbons, Bill Killian and Bill Haslam hadn’t elevated Tennessee’s Muslims to a super protected class could the Chattanooga jihad murder have been averted?
Bill Gibbons – Despite the 2009 jihad murder by Memphis native Carlos Bledsoe, Tennessee’s Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security Bill Gibbons (also from Memphis), took an early lead in obscuring any objective examination of who and what the jihad threat might be in Tennessee:
- 2011 – Bill Gibbons assigned James Cotter to help organize the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) whose founding members openly praise Muslim Brotherhood organizations that “help American Muslims stay true to their religious values while being uniquely American.”
- In 2009 James Cotter was a TNDHS Regional Advisor who said with regard to foreign threats, “anything that they do over there can happen here and will.” [almost like a prediction of Chattanooga]. Not long after helping AMAC organize, Cotter was promoted to the state’s Office of Homeland Security Training Advisor.
- 2011 – AMAC posted these pictures from when they were invited by TNDHS to start training Tennessee safety and homeland security personnel.
- November 2011, Gibbons sent a congratulatory letter to AMAC dated months before his denial of his agency’s involvement with them.
- In early 2012 when asked, Gibbons denied ever having been involved with AMAC – right before his 2011 letter appeared.
- September 2012 – Nashville Somali refugee worker said “she was ready to die for Allah. Further, Abdullahi said that her life starts after death and that she should pick up a gun and ‘shoot all these people,’ referring to her co-workers.”
Bill Killian – In June 2013 Tennessee U.S. Attorney Bill Killian spoke at an AMAC event. He said he would use federal civil rights laws to stop legally permissible hate speech directed at Muslims. The next day Killian disclosed how he planned to promote politically correct speech while suppressing First Amendment rights:
“Hateful statements directed at another will be used as evidence in a hate crime,… Our district has a 96 percent conviction rate…and we’ve never had a conviction overturned for violation of First Amendment.”
- December 2014 – a claimed ISIS related group threatened to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas bridge.
- January 2015 – Cyber Caliphate hacks into “secure” Stewart County, TN server.
- May, 2015 – Nashville Douglas Corner Cafe cyber-hacked with “I am Muslim and I love jihad”
- July 16, 2015 – Jihad murders at two military reserve centers in Chattanooga.
Bill Killian has been assigned the lead position in investigating the Chattanooga jihad murders. Bill Killian has made his Islamist apologist bias public and has a conflict of interest and should recuse himself.
Bill Haslam – the governor of Oklahoma, Mary Fallon DID NOT HESITATE to immediately issue an executive order enabling National Guardsmen to be armed at military facilities. Governors in several other states followed her lead.
With his typical lack of urgency, the best Bill Haslam could do was delay action. First he’s having an inquiry made and then he’ll see about how the state can expedite members of the military getting a state gun carry permit.
Is the Governor aware that the Brentwood mosque where jihadi murderer Abdulazeez prayed while he was working in Franklin, is located right next door to a Marine recruitment center?
What’s the likelihood that any or all of the Three Bills, can put their political correctness and Muslim apologist bias aside to remember that they have a duty to protect all of us, not just Muslim sensitivities?
Tennessee AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) spokesman Paul “Iesa” Galloway was quick to respond to the jihad murder in Chattanooga. And, the Islamist – apologist Tennessean newspaper was quick to abet Galloway’s public relations campaign:
“Paul Galloway, of the American Muslim Advisory Council, gave a statement on behalf of the leaders and condemned the attack as an effort to incite terror and divide the country along faith lines.”
“‘The Tennessee Muslim community unequivocally condemns today’s heinous and unjustified attack in Chattanooga, in which four U.S. Marines were murdered and at least three people, including one Chattanooga police officer, were injured’”
Two days later, the newspaper featured AMAC Board member and documented Jew hater, Drost Kokoye leading a protest against the violence in Chattanooga and….Charleston.
Dylann Roof committed a reprehensible racist hate crime. No sanctioned systemic ideology fueling his plan.
Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez committed reprehensible jihad murders justified by sacred Islamic doctrine.
Tennessee’s other military recruiting center jihadi murderer, Abdulhakim Muhammed (formerly Carlos Bledsoe), said it best:
“This [his murder of Pvt. Andrew Long] was a jihadi attack on infidel forces …”
AMAC’s Galloway says Abdulazeez’s jihadi murder wasn’t justified. Drost says it was no different than a racist hate crime.
The Quran, Galloway and Drost’s holy book and doctrine says otherwise:
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
Quran (9:111) – “Allah hath purchased of the believers their persons and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain: a promise binding on Him in truth, through the Law, the Gospel, and the Quran: and who is more faithful to his covenant than Allah? then rejoice in the bargain which ye have concluded: that is the achievement supreme.”
“The Prophet said, ‘War is deceit.'” (Hadith).
Do we believe the Quran or Islamist political operatives like Galloway and Drost who are religiously sanctioned to deceive?
Leftist organizing starts in Nashville
In 1996, a Vanderbilt Ph.D candidate documented how the radical socialist Saul Alinsky style of community organizing started in Nashville. In 1989, an interfaith group called The Nashville Sponsoring Committee (NSC) contracted with the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF) to train the them in community organizing.
The groups financially supporting the NSC included the Catholic Archdiocese of Nashville, the Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church, USA, the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee and the Jewish Fund for Justice.
IAF was founded in 1940 by Chicago socialist and political radical Saul Alinsky, a “Communist/Marxist fellow-traveler.” Alinsky started the IAF’s training institute in 1969. It was designed as a “school for professional radicals” that sought redistribution of wealth and communist centralized government control:
“The Alinsky radical has one principle — to take power from the so-called Haves and give it to the so-called Have-nots… a destructive assault on the established order in the name of the ‘people,’ which delivers power (and wealth) into the hands of a radical elite and makes them feel good about themselves in the process.” http://www.newsrealblog.com/2009/08/20/post-modern-leftism-alinsky-beck-satan-and-me-part-v/
IAF is not grassroots organizing; it is a tool of the professional left. It is the Alinsky-radical- trained professional organizer who sets the local group’s agenda and then uses techniques specifically designed to manipulate the group into rejecting the status quo and demanding “change” (revolution).
Early on, IAF was funded by wealthy elites and Catholic institutions. Between 1992 – 1997, IAF received approximately $6,466,500 from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).
IAF’s expansion into the South, and specifically into religious organizations, was strategic. The NSC and IAF served each other’s purposes; IAF would help the local group organize (Nashville), and the religiously identified NSC would provide a veneer of moral credibility for IAF’s revolutionary campaigns for social change, political power grabbing and undermining the middle class traditional order.
In 1993 the NSC paid IAF’s Southeast Regional Director Gerald Taylor $50,000 for professional community organizing services and to help the NSC mutate into the organization Tying Nashville Together (TNT).
Religious groups that invested their financial and human resources in TNT, aligned themselves with Alinsky’s tactics and adopted leftist politics as their first religion of choice. Aligning with Alinsky was an ironic choice for these religious communities considering that Alinsky dedicated his playbook Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer, citing him as the first true radical to have “rebelled against the establishment…”
Alinsky said that there were no hard and fast truths, no moral or ethical considerations that should guide a group’s demands or what they would do to achieve their goals. In Rules for Radicals Alinsky wrote that:
“The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means.
Alinsky counseled that “revolution” came by change from within. His strategy was to infiltrate churches, political parties, unions and other structural institutions, work into positions of authority and decision-making and introduce change from within.
Did the authors of the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood manifesto read Alinsky too?
Use this graphic as you read the series about the ACLU, the Left’s biggest hypocrite:
“The Bill of Rights contains no grant of privilege for a group of people to destroy the Bill of Rights.” Eisenhower on Communism, October 1952.
The TN ACLU would like you to believe that it fights equally for everyone’s religious freedoms, civil liberties and Constitutional rights. It doesn’t.
The ACLU would like you to believe that it’s work promotes the ideals of democracy and social justice. It doesn’t do that either.
The ACLU would like you to believe that it is nonpartisan and advocates for individual rights. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
The ACLU’s work is about moving its socialist and communist DNA into the mainstream. It’s about the red-green alliance (the professional leftists and the Islamists), sharing a mutual goal of undermining the Judeo-Christian foundation of Western civilization. It’s about rejecting the individual initiative that drives capitalism in favor of collectivist redistribution of resources. It’s about partnering with groups willing to abuse and disassemble our Constitutional liberties to advance the leftist agenda. It’s about disenfranchising “the Establishment.”
It’s about socially advantaged elites showing solidarity with the “underprivileged” – that is, until they retire at the end of the day and drive their pricey hybrid cars to their children’s private school, then on to their expensive homes in privileged neighborhoods.
Socialists + Communists = ACLU
The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), was co-founded by Norman Thomas, William Foster and Roger Baldwin. These fathers of the new left, defining themselves as the “counterculture,” came to power in the 1960’s.
These men from Chicago came out of the Midwest labor movement – they were the progressives. They wanted to help the oppressed workers raise economic standards and working conditions.
Norman Thomas, a Presbyterian minister, was a six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. He said,
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.”
William Foster, a Marxist, was the National Chairman of the Communist Party USA from 1945 to 1957. He said,
“The establishment of an American Soviet government will involve the confiscation of large landed estates in town and country, and also, the whole body of forests, mineral deposits, lakes, rivers and so on.”
Roger Baldwin was an admirer of Stalin’s government. He said:
“I joined. I don’t regret being a part of the Communist tactic, which increased the effectiveness of a good cause. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the Communists wanted.”
Baldwin accepted dictatorship and suppression of rights were necessary to achieve socialism.
These men formed an organization intended to destroy our country, and created an Orewellian vocabulary to subvert mainstream American thought.
“Multiculturalism,” “human rights,” “tolerance” and “social justice” is the jargon of the ACLU’s leftist ideology. They fuel their moral narcissism on the backs of the underdog and use minority rights as an excuse to substitute a socialist solution which has been proven time and time again that it doesn’t work. The ideology is a master-slave relationship to keep the minority disenfranchised and emphasizes materialism as the answer to all our problems.
The ACLU and their fellow Alinsky travelers (discussed in later parts), have perfected the art of liberal bullying along with a proficiency in name-calling, propaganda and fact distortion to achieve their ultimate Communist goals.
