More Interesting Friends For Landrieu

UPDATE NO.2: Aaron Saunders from Landrieu’s office tells the Hayride that on two occasions (Oct. 27 and Nov. 12) she declined an invitation to speak at the event in question and, as far as the senator is concerned, was never scheduled to attend. The updated link to the event in question now has Alex Kronemer, the producer of the film Inside Islam and the co-founder of Unity Productions Foundation, as its keynote speaker.

UPDATE: Landrieu’s office has apparently told Fox News that she won’t be attending Saturday’s event after all. Not that she never planned to attend, just that she won’t be attending now.

Fresh off her national “Louisiana Purchase” outrage, Sen. Mary Landrieu has a full dance card back in New Orleans over the next few days. Her companions for the Crescent City one-night stands on the calendar are, shall we say, interesting.

It’s common knowledge by now that Landrieu will be hosting a $4800-a-plate fundraiser for Harry Reid at the St. Charles Avenue home of Obama donor and political animal David Voelker on Dec. 12. But before that hootenanny takes place, Landrieu will be palling around with another group of friendlies.

On Saturday, Landrieu is set to give the welcome speech at a rather out-of-the-mainstream event – this time, she’ll be addressing the New Orleans premiere of Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think, a documentary which purports to explore “the expertly gathered opinions of Muslims around the globe as revealed in the world’s first major opinion poll, conducted by Gallup, the preeminent polling organization. Focused on the issues of Gender Justice, Terrorism, and Democracy – the film presents remarkable data deftly, challenging the popular notion that Muslims and the West are on a collision course. Like the research, the film highlights a shared relationship that is based on facts – not fear.”

From watching the trailer for Inside Islam, the impression given is that Muslims love America a great deal but U.S. policy makes them very sad. This is a very useful bit of advocacy for Islamic groups in the United States and elsewhere to be sure, and it certainly adheres to the left-wing meme that aggressive American foreign policy in the Islamic world and/or our alliance with Israel is the reason for our unpopularity in the Middle East and elsewhere.

The problem is, the reality on the ground is that the Muslim world hates the United States and has always held a negative opinion of us – and a shift toward penitence and appeasement and away from the “cowboy” image of George W. Bush does nothing to change that. An excellent column in Sunday’s Wall Street Journal by Fouad Ajami brings the cold hand of truth across our faces:

It was the norm for American liberalism during the Bush years to brandish the Pew Global Attitudes survey that told of America’s decline in the eyes of foreign nations. Foreigners were saying what the liberals wanted said.

Now those surveys of 2009 bring findings from the world of Islam that confirm that the animus toward America has not been radically changed by the ascendancy of Mr. Obama. In the Palestinian territories, 15% have a favorable view of the U.S. while 82% have an unfavorable view. The Obama speech in Ankara didn’t seem to help in Turkey, where the favorables are 14% and those unreconciled, 69%. In Egypt, a country that’s reaped nearly 40 years of American aid, things stayed roughly the same: 27% have a favorable view of the U.S. while 70% do not. In Pakistan, a place of great consequence for American power, our standing has deteriorated: The unfavorables rose from 63% in 2008 to 68% this year.

So as we can see, Landrieu is largely supporting a propaganda film in making her appearance and speech at Saturday’s premiere. And her neighbors at the dais don’t inspire a great deal of confidence, either – the committee putting on the Inside Islam event includes the Pakistan Community Association Of Greater New Orleans, Jefferson Muslim Association and Interfaith Works, as well as the West Bank Muslim Association, Muslim Student Association of New Orleans, ICNA Louisiana and Masjid ur Rahim.

For the unwashed, ICNA stands for the Islamic Circle of North America - an organization which should be radioactive for any mainstream politician to be seen in public with. Landrieu may not be the only elected official to break bread with that outfit, but that is no more an excuse than the inside-the-beltway typicality of her Louisiana Purchase move was for her behavior. You want to run far away from the ICNA. According to DiscoverTheNetworks.org:

ICNA has established a reputation for bringing anti-American radicals to speak at its annual conferences. Moreover, experts have long documented the organization’s ties to Islamic terrorist groups. Yehudit Barsky, a terrorism expert at the American Jewish Committee, has said that ICNA “is composed of members of Jamaat e-Islami, a Pakistani Islamic radical organization similar to the Muslim Brotherhood that helped to establish the Taliban.” (Pakistani newspapers have reported that Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, a leading architect of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, was offered refuge in the home of Jamaat e-Islami’s leader, Ahmed Quddoos.) On September 27, 1997, another Pakistani Islamist leader, Maulana Shafayat Mohamed, played host to an ICNA conference at his Florida-based fundamentalist madrassa (religious school), which served as a recruitment center for Taliban fighters.

That’s not all. The ICNA was named as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood at the 2002 Holy Land Foundation trial, in which many of the nation’s more prominent Muslim organizations were named as contrbuting at least indirectly to Hamas terrorism. Terrorism expert Steven Emerson has said “The ICNA openly supports militant Islamic fundamentalist organizations, praises terror attacks, issues incendiary attacks on western values and policies, and supports the imposition of Sharia [Islamic law].”

Another organization Landrieu will be palling around with on Saturday which shares ties to the Muslim Brotherhood is the Muslim Students Association, whose New Orleans chapter is partnering as a host. The MSA, like the ICNA, is radioactive:

From its inception, MSA had close links with the extremist Muslim World League, whose chapters’ websites have featured not only Osama bin Laden’s propaganda, but also publicity-recruiting campaigns for Wahhabi subversion of the Chechen struggle in Russia. According to author and Islam expert Stephen Schwartz, MSA is a key lobbying organization for the Wahhabi sect of Islam.

MSA solicited donations for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, whose assets the U.S. government seized in December 2001 because that organization was giving financial support to the terrorist group Hamas. MSA also has strong ties to the World Assembly of Muslim Youth.

Charging that U.S. foreign policy is driven by militaristic imperialism, MSA steadfastly opposes the American military incursions into both Afghanistan and Iraq. The organization also follows the Arab propaganda line in the Middle East conflict and has condemned the anti-terrorist security fence that Israel has built in the West Bank as an illegal “apartheid wall” that violates the civil and human rights of Palestinians.

An influential member of the International ANSWER steering committee, MSA maintains a large presence at ANSWER-sponsored anti-war demonstrations. The pro-North Korea, pro-Saddam Hussein ANSWER is a front organization of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party.

Local chapters of MSA were signatories to a February 20, 2002 document, composed by the radical group Refuse & Resist (a creation of the Revolutionary Communist Party‘s C. Clark Kissinger), condemning military tribunals and the detention of immigrants apprehended in connection with post-9/11 terrorism investigations. The document read, in part: “[T]hey [the U.S. government] are coming for the Arab, Muslim and South Asian immigrants. … The recent ‘disappearances,’ indefinite detention, the round-ups, the secret military tribunals, the denial of legal representation, evidence kept a secret from the accused, the denial of any due process for Arab, Muslim, South Asians and others, have chilling similarities to a police state.”

Perhaps Landrieu isn’t really aware of who she’ll be trafficking with on Saturday. Her event chair is Syed Basharat Ali, the president of the Pakistan Community Association Of Greater New Orleans. Ali isn’t a particularly controversial figure, though he does surface in the archives at a June 2004 event in which the Pakistani community made itself known as a Democrat voting bloc

Syed Basharat Ali, the community president, explained the reasons responsible for breaking away from the Republicans. He said:” Let me make it loud and clear that the shift is the result of a considered judgment, based on principles which guide the course of our community.”

He said Islam, which preaches tolerance, brotherhood and co-existence for the glory of mankind, was being “misrepresented and misinterpreted by some forces out to grind their own axe to meet their narrow ends.”

He said Pakistani Americans were joining hands with other Muslims living in the USA to foil these ugly designs. “We are confident that our support to the Democrats, striving to regain power in order to promote peace and amity in the strife-torn world, would produce results.” Ali, a chemical engineer by profession, also traced the history of US-Pakistan relations turned prominent by President Nixon’s historic visit to China in 1972 via Pakistan to open a new chapter of rapprochement, saying Islamabad deserves greater international support to fight terrorism in the face of heavy odds.

“In a country like Pakistan created in the name of Islam, terrorism has to be separated from freedom struggle.” He also made a special mention of the crucial role played by Pakistan in freeing Afghanistan from the Soviet domination with the US support, saying the Pakistani Americans were committed to boosting US-Pakistan relations to mutual benefit. He also underscored the growing need for closer Pakistan-India relations and peace for the good of not only the two nuclear powers but also the region. “Let them fight together their common enemy —poverty and illiteracy.”

He called upon the community, attending for the first time such a high-profile function, to play a meaningfully forceful role to make its presence felt in what he called ‘the vibrant and dynamic US Politics’ for common good. “We will have to become part and parcel of the US system and it’s only possible by studying and adopting its dynamics and becoming voters.”

The point here is not to say that Landrieu is courting the jihadist vote. But fresh from her recent performance it does seem like a shockingly reckless idea for her to be hanging around with people affiliated with Muslim Brotherhood front organizations to promote a quasi-anti-American propaganda film. Louisiana’s voters, who are overwhelmingly unhappy with her job performance as it is, deserve much better.

    Good info…hope to cross-post soon…

    One point not mentioned above is the author of the Pew study is non-other than Dalia Mogahed (mujahid), Barack Obama’s advisor to the Muslim world. Mogahed recently joined the terrorist group Hizb ut Tahrir on an Islamist television show to promote Islamic sharia law. Although she is supposed to be representing the U.S., she chose not to defend attacks by Hizb on democracy and capitalism during the program.

    I was one of many to be greatly disappointed to learn that a recall petition and election to remove Mary from office was not allowed under current law. As such, you provide a great service in keeping your readers informed of who Mary choses as a bedfellow. We know she can be bought, and we know her price, so we just need to know who she’s selling herself to.

    Unfortunately it’s a long time until her next election cycle, so we must keep stoking the flames of anger she has recently ignited.

        Unfortunately, the only way you can get rid of a U.S. Senator is either to beat him or her in an election or have the Senate vote in favor of an expulsion. Believe me, we looked into it.

    Catholic Mary palling around with Mohammedans.

    Doesn’t she know that Muslims hate all people of other faiths – Jews in particular, followed by Christians. Hey Mary – you like these from your Jihadist friends’ “holy” book:

    “Kill non-Muslims wherever you find them. Lie in wait and ambush them, seize and capture them using every stratagem of war (for example, political, economic, propaganda, population explosion). If they convert to Islam and pray and contribute to the cause of Islam (Jihad), let them go.” (Koran 9:5)

    “Non-Muslims MUST convert to Islam or they will be killed.” (Koran 48:16)

    “Fight the people of the Book (Jews and Christians) and extort money from them.” (Koran 9:29)

    “Mohammed, the messenger of Allah, and those who follow him (Muslims) are merciful to one another but harsh to the infidels (non-Muslims).” (Koran 48:29)

    “Do not make friends with inferior people (Jews, Christians and all non-Muslims).” (Koran 3:118)

    Why don’t you ask your Jihadist friends about those verses, Mary?

    I have not read such a poorly researched article in a LONG time. Must have taken real hatred from within to write it. But I don’t blame you. You’ve probably only been exposed to the stereotypes. It may do you all some good to attend this event…not only to see the documentary, but to actually meet “real live muslims.” I can guarantee you that most muslims, esp those in the US, will not meet the stereotype you have painted above.

    Because the internet has allowed you to have a public voice, I would encourage you to properly research your articles prior to writing them. Not doing so only contributes to misunderstandings and misconceptions.

    To begin, the National Muslim Student Association is not a sponsor of this event. Muslim Student AssociationS of New Orleans are sponsoring the event. That’s all I’ll tell you for now. If you are actually interested in researching your work, I encourage you to find out more. That’s your lead.

    Really sad that a few people trying to spread awareness and eliminate prejudice/hatred are labeled as jihadists trying to win Landrieu’s vote. Seriously? Wow.

    Expose yourself to different kinds of people, cultures, and backgrounds. It’s the 21st century..and we live in the United States of America. This is not okay.

    I realize you have the right to your opinion..and I respect that. I only wish you would properly research your articles before posting them on the internet.

    Thanks.

    ps. To the person who posted the verses from the “Koran”, I would recommend not using google to look up the words, “terrorist” “muslim” “koran”….it kind of skews the results.

    If you are interested, local universities in New Orleans offer intro courses to Islam and the Middle East. If you are not a college student, I’m sure you could audit the class to learn more. It’s a great, unbiased, academic forum. It allows you to read texts (including the Koran/Quran) in context – along with many other historical pearls, like the travels the Ibn Battuta. All documents, including religious ones, definitely need to be read in context. The classes also are a great place to voice your opinions and have disussions with others. Highly recommended!

    I find it telling – and typical – that the voices of Islam would respond to criticisms of Muslim Brotherhood organizations with accusations of (1) ignorance and (2) hatred as methods of addressing critics.

    The fact that the event in question is put on by MSA chapters rather than the national organization is a distinction without a difference. The Muslim Student Association is an organization with a history, and it is not a particularly distinguished one with respect to terrorism and jihad. To wit:

    - On October 22, 2000, Ahmed Shama, then-President of the UCLA Muslim Students Association, led a crowd of demonstrators at the Israeli consulate in chants of “Death to Israel!” and “Death to the Jews!” One guest speaker at the event was Hamid Ayloush, a member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which co-sponsored the rally. In his speech, Ayloush solicited contributions for the aforementioned Holy Land Foundation.

    - In recent years, MSA members at UCLA raised money for Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists at their annual “Anti-Zionist Week.”

    - In March 2003, speaker Muammad Faheed told an MSA meeting at Queensborough Community College in New York, “The only relationship you should have with America is to topple it!”

    - At its Annual Conference in 2003, the Iowa Muslim Student Association invited, as a guest speaker, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, who had told a college audience in 1994: “I am a supporter of the Hamas movement.”

    - The University of Southern California MSA invited Taliban ambassador Sayyid Hashimi to speak on campus six months before 9/11.

    - The MSA chapter at California State University-Northridge held a fundraiser for Islamic Relief Worldwide, an organization that received a $50,000 contribution from a pro-Osama bin Laden front group based in Canada.

    - In 2002, James Madison University’s MSA sponsored a “Jihad” panel that included Dr. Abdulrahman Hijazi, who had once extolled an Islamic suicide bomber as a “martyr” whose actions were animated by a hope of securing “the mercy of Allah” by means of “one of the greatest good deeds, which is jihad.”

    - In 2003, University of Idaho MSA President Sami Omar Al-Hussayen was ordered deported because he worked for the Islamic Assembly of North America, which has ties to al Qaeda. While on campus, Al-Hussayen had sought access to a chemical lab containing nuclear material.

    - Alkalima, the newspaper of the Muslim Student Union at the University of California – Irvine (which is an MSA campus chapter), once published a special report called “Zionism: The Forgotten Apartheid,” which glorified Hamas and Hezbollah as noble warriors fighting Israeli oppression. Alkalima’s June 2004 edition contained an opinion piece praising Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad. It also described Hamas founder Ahmed Yassin and former Hamas senior leader Abdel Aziz Rantisi as “martyrs.”

    - At the 7th annual MSA West Conference held at the University of Southern California in January 2005, former MSA UCLA member Ahmed Shama said: “We want to restore Islam to the leadership of society. … The goal … is the reestablishment of the Islamic form of government.” Shama praised Hamas and Hezbollah for being “uncompromising” on their principles, and for refusing to “shake hands with the other side.” He lauded the terrorist leader Muqtada al-Sadr for “legitimately fighting against [U.S.] occupation” in Iraq. He identified Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood as part of the “mainstream Islamic movement.” He praised Hamas’ resolve that “the only solution to the current occupation is military resistance. Not shaking hands. Not dialogue.” And he declared, “We have an obligation to make sure that our MSAs are part of the global Islamic movement.”

    - At the February 2006 MSA West Conference at Sacramento State University, guest speaker Abdel Malik-Ali praised the late Hamas founder Ahmed Yassin and rejoiced at Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s poor health.

    - MSA co-founder Ahmad Totonji was a major figure in the Virginia-based, Muslim Brotherhood-dominated SAAR network which, according to federal investigators, had financing ties to al Qaeda, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Hamas.

    The commenter also neglects to mention the presence on the event committee of the Islamic Circle of North America, which is an organization with a rather disturbing history as well.

    It is nice to be granted, on a web site I publish, the right to my own opinion. Given the common reaction to criticism of many who share the commenter’s faith I will gladly accept being denounced as a bigot and an ignoramus rather than share the fate of others who have refused to keep quiet about the fifth column in our midst during a civilizational struggle. And the commenter’s semantic defense of the Muslim Students’ Association at the same time he purports to “spread awareness” is telling indeed. As he says, though, “this is not okay.”

    macaoidh – Yours is an EXCELLENT article (as you know), so pay no attention to the Mohammedan “Wow” above.

    To “Wow” – The “haters” are YOU people, Muslims. Why don’t you stop mass-murdering people worldwide? You Haters. You deserve to be despised and reviled. And your evil ideology, too. Not to mention your false prophet Warlord, who made the whole thing up so he could prosper as a “Prophet.” Some “Prophet” – Mo never prophesied NUTHIN’. As you know. Mo is a Charlatan, along with Mass-Murderer (of Jews/Christians), Slave-Owner (including Black slaves), Rapist, Pedophile, Thief, Polygamist. Yeah – some “Prophet” you got there. LOL You Brainwashed Barbarians.

    Next, we don’t want to be “exposed” to Muslims. We’ve had enough of you Barbarians, thank you. In fact, why don’t you get out of our Western countries and go back to your own? They’re not good enough for you? The “allah” lands aren’t good enough for you? You have to come here?

    Now, Landrieu is NOT the “keynote speaker.” Good on you, Mary, that was the right decision. Anything else would have been completely immoral on your part.

    Also, we’re not going to “take any courses” about Islam! What, are you joking? Who the hell cares about Barbaric idiotic mass-murdering Islam? I’ve already read your Hate Book, thank you, and wouldn’t spend any money on such nonsense. Oh, you liked my Koranic verses, straight from the mouth of allah ?(LOL yeah right! You’re brainwashed). Here’s a little quote from Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey:

    “Islam is an absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, a rotting corpse which poisons our lives.”

    And he was a Muzlim! Take a course in Islam?! No thanks – we know all about Islam. In addition, reading the Koran is like reading an elementary text, so no “courses” needed!

    Oh, and shut-up with that “misunderstanding,” “misconception,” and “context” crap – you think we buy those lame excuses anymore? We are so much more intelligent than you people it’s not funny. Let’s see – the West invented basically EVERYTHING – what did you people contribute? NOTHING. All you people have been for 1400 years are parasites and terrorists. Yeah – thanks for all your Islamic “contributions!”

    Finally, we have Free Speech in America. Everything I wrote above is PROTECTED by the First Amendment, and I can damn well say it all. Meanwhile, there is no free speech in Islamic countries, and criticizing Mo/Koran/allah are death – penalty offenses. You Backward Barbarians.

    I hate Islam. It DESERVES to be hated, just as Fascism and Nazism deserve to be hated. All three are supremacist, totalitarian, hegemonic, 100% intolerant, evil ideologies.

    Now, get out of our Judeo-Christian country. Go back to your own Islamic country, where you belong. Stop infiltrating ours with your barbaric ideology. Highly recommended!

    macaoidh – Yours is an EXCELLENT article (as you know), so pay no attention to the Mohammedan “Wow” above.

    To “Wow” – The “haters” are YOU people, Muslims. Why don’t you stop mass-murdering people worldwide? You Haters. You deserve to be despised and reviled. And your evil ideology, too. Not to mention your false prophet Warlord, who made the whole thing up so he could prosper as a “Prophet.” Some “Prophet” – Mo never prophesied NUTHIN’. As you know. Mo is a Charlatan, along with Mass-Murderer (of Jews/Christians), Slave-Owner (including Black slaves), Rapist, Pedophile, Thief, Polygamist. Yeah – some “Prophet” you got there. LOL You Brainwashed Barbarians.

    Next, we don’t want to be “exposed” to Muslims. We’ve had enough of you Barbarians, thank you. In fact, why don’t you get out of our Western countries and go back to your own? They’re not good enough for you? The “allah” lands aren’t good enough for you? You have to come here?

    Now, Landrieu is NOT the “keynote speaker.” Good on you, Mary, that was the right decision. Anything else would have been completely immoral on your part.

    Also, we’re not going to “take any courses” about Islam! What, are you joking? Who the hell cares about Barbaric idiotic mass-murdering Islam? I’ve already read your Hate Book, thank you, and wouldn’t spend any money on such nonsense. Oh, you liked my Koranic verses, straight from the mouth of allah ?(LOL yeah right! You’re brainwashed). Here’s a little quote from Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey:

    “Islam is an absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, a rotting corpse which poisons our lives.”

    And he was a Muzlim! Take a course in Islam?! No thanks – we know all about Islam. In addition, reading the Koran is like reading an elementary text, so no “courses” needed!

    Oh, and shut-up with that “misunderstanding,” “misconception,” and “context” crap – you think we buy those lame excuses anymore? We are so much more intelligent than you people it’s not funny. Let’s see – the West invented basically EVERYTHING – what did you people contribute? NOTHING. All you people have been for 1400 years are parasites and terrorists. Yeah – thanks for all your Islamic “contributions!”

    Finally, we have Free Speech in America. Everything I wrote above is PROTECTED by the First Amendment, and I can damn well say it all. Meanwhile, there is no free speech in Islamic countries, and criticizing Mo/Koran/allah are death – penalty offenses. You Backward Barbarians.

    I hate Islam. It DESERVES to be hated, just as Fascism and Nazism deserve to be hated. All three are supremacist, totalitarian, hegemonic, 100% intolerant, evil ideologies.

    Now, get out of our Judeo-Christian country. Go back to your own Islamic country, where you belong. Stop infiltrating ours with your barbaric ideology. Highly recommended!

    “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”

    – Houari (Mohamed) Boumedienne, President of Algeria, 1965 – 1978, in a 1974 speech at the UN

    This “Demographic Jihad” is happening RIGHT NOW.

    As Brigitte Gabriel says, “They must be stopped.”

    I’m sorry that you have these views on Islam – and if Muslims have impacted your life in any negative way. I understand that there are many who are using the Islamic message in the wrong way.

    However, there are many Muslims who are trying hard to represent the true Islam, a religion of peace and tolerance. And I hope that you will give us that chance.
    You would be very welcome at any of our events.

    I hope you’ll see that we are just local New Orleanians…like anyone else.

    To “Wow,” a question – is sharia law reflective of “true” Islam? And if it is, how does that square with the “religion of peace and tolerance” line?

    I am happy to take you at your word that you are not involved in any attempts to Islamicize New Orleans or America as a whole. Given the histories of the organizations involved in today’s events, however, and given yet one more example of a jihadist committing an atrocity in our midst yesterday – when an Islamist grad student stabbed to death a professor at Binghamton University with a kitchen knife – you’ll forgive the rest of us when we take a decidedly jaundiced view toward any event at which Islam is proselytized by people with a record of promoting violence or subjugation of non-Muslims by other means.

    “Wow” is nothing but a Mohammedan propagandist.

    Islam has nothing whatsoever to do with “peace and tolerance.” In fact, Islam is a political ideology of evil, terror and intolerance.

    Nobody buys that “peace and tolerance” BS anymore, Wow! So, don’t waste your breath. Islam is a “Kill the Infidels” and “Slay the Disbelievers” 100% intolerant hate-filled Fascist/Nazi ideology invented by a degenerate pedophile Warlord for personal power.

    Islam is the religion of Terror. Mo is the first Islamic Terrorist. Mo had the Jews/Christians of Medina beheaded by his brainwashed minions. A “Prophet of God” beheads people? Yeah, right! A “Prophet of God” mass-murders? Yeah, right! A “Prophet of God” has slaves? Yeah, right! A “Prophet of God” rapes a 9-year-old girl when he’s 53? Yeah, right! You people are demented. In fact, you’re insane. Anyone who actually believes Islam to be a valid religion is either insane or evil.

    I noticed that Mary Landrieu cancelled her appearance at your event! I wonder if that could be attributed in any way to the long correspondence I sent her about Evil Islam? At least she came to her senses – imagine, a Catholic “Infidel” speaking on behalf of the Infidel-hating Islamic Barbarians. Who are currently ruining and destroying the wonderful countries of Western Europe with their deliberate Demographic Jihad. Of course, the “leaders” of these countries, crippled by the twin lies of political correctness and multiculturalism are allowing it to happen. WE is becoming an islamic cesspool.

    Wow – why don’t you go live in your own islamic country where you can be a slave to allah and over-breed there? It speaks volumes that you don’t reside in a Mo land. Hypocrite. Not good enough for you, eh?
