ISLAMIC THINKERS SOCIETY (ITS)
* Embraces the ideological tenets of the Muslim Brotherhood
* Offshoot of the now-defunct Al-Muhajiroun
* Seeks to restore the Islamic caliphate
* Calls for the enactment of Sharia law in every society on earth
Based in Jackson Heights, New York, the Islamic Thinkers Society (ITS) – sometimes known as the Intellectual Thinkers Society – describes itself as a group of “like-minded Muslims” who “give public da’wah [proselytization] to society, where we invite the society to [convert to] Islam.” Emphasizing that this “struggle” is pursued exclusively by “non-violent” means, ITS carries out its da’wah activities mainly in the streets of Jackson Heights and in Manhattan’s Times Square area. There, ITS members – who are mostly young, second-generation Muslim immigrants of Arab, Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani descent – distribute leaflets and hold banners conveying their group’s religious message. “This methodology,” saysITS, “was adopted from the [life] of the prophet Muhammad [and his companions who] would constantly … exhaust all their efforts to give da’wah to the Makkan [Meccan] society to invite them to the [reverence] of Allah.”
Embracing the ideological tenets of the Muslim Brotherhood, ITS is an offshoot of the now-defunct Al-Muhajiroun. ITS also has ties to the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), and it openly supports the agendas of al Qaeda.
Hollywood: The Democrats’ Secret Weapon Posted By Ben Shapiro URL to article: http://frontpagemag.com/2011/09/30/hollywood-the-democrats-secret-weapon/ Network television’s new offerings this year offer more evidence to the effect that Hollywood is the PR machine for the Democratic left. No matter that our leftist president is wildly unpopular; never mind that Americans are resonating to Constitutional messages as [...]
Jordan is Palestine: Arieh Eldad’s Two-State Solution Posted By Mark Tapson URL to article: http://frontpagemag.com/2011/09/30/jordan-is-palestine-arieh-eldad%e2%80%99s-two-state-solution/ With a petition for Palestinian statehood presented before the United Nations last week, the issue of the disputed right to the land of Israel seems to many to be on the verge of an historic, if unsatisfying and controversial, [...]
A Rational Fear of Islamism
Not all fears are irrational, nor criticism unwarranted.
In recent months, several reports have appeared to a generally uncritical reception in the press, which purport to expose alleged conspiracies organized by “Islamophobes” against American citizens who mean us no harm. These reports single out for condemnation a dozen prominent conservative figures (and mostly the same dozen) who have publicly criticized the misogyny, bigotry, and terrorism promoted by many (but not all) Islamic institutions and religious texts.
The term “Islamophobia” itself was invented by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the political fountainhead of Islamic terror, having spawned al-Qaeda and created Hamas. Not coincidently, the reports themselves have been produced by Brotherhood fronts like CAIR, and jihadist apologists like the Southern Poverty Law Center. But the latest and most elaborate Islamophobia report, transparently derivative of its predecessors, has been issued by the Center for American Progress, which is a brain trust of the Democratic party. It thus marks a disturbing development in this ugly campaign.
http://news.yahoo.com/prominent-us-born-al-qaida-cleric-killed-yemen-104110647.html SANAA, Yemen (AP) — Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S.-born Islamic militant cleric who became a prominent figure in al-Qaida’s most active branch, using his fluent English and Internet savvy to draw recruits to carry out attacks in the United States, was killed Friday in the mountains of Yemen, American and Yemeni officials said. The Yemeni [...]

U.S. Taxes and the United Nations Money Pit Posted By Claudia Rosett URL to article: http://pajamasmedia.com/claudiarosett/u-s-taxes-and-the-united-nations-money-pit/ Whether you love or hate the United Nations, one thing all Americans ought to be able to agree on is that sloshing billions of American tax dollars into the UN, with little accountability and regardless of UN performance, [...]
Robert Conquest, pre-eminent historian of the genocides, purges and terrors of the Soviet Union, has long contemplated the blinders the West wears so as not to look at the millions of dead bodies for which the gigantically Evil Empire was responsible.
“Why people didn’t, and still don’t, understand the communist regimes has to do with their concentration on reputable, or reputable-sounding, phenomena,” Conquest wrote in a 2005 essay. “This is what amounts to an attempt to tame the data or, perhaps more correctly, a mental or psychological bent toward blocking the real essentials, the real meaning.”
In only rare instances is this block ever exposed. One memorable example came when Jimmy Carter announced to the world that the December 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan “has made a more dramatic change in my own opinion of what the Soviets’ ultimate goals are than anything they have done in the previous time I’ve been in office.” Since this was the president of the United States talking, not Little Bo Peep, such laughable naivete — evidence of taming the data, or blocking reality — was subject to ridicule, even at the time.
http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.10477/pub_detail.asp The usual truism is that many politicians make the mistake of not coming completely clean when allegations of wrongdoing surface. The cover-up, it is said, is often worse than the underlying crime or ethical violation. This has often been cited as the mistake made by people including Richard Nixon (Watergate break-in), Bill Clinton (Lewinsky, [...]
America!! It’s time to wake up: There’s an Iranian missile base in Venezuela; The Iranian Navy is starting a mission in the Atlantic Ocean and into the Gulf of Mexico; Iranian missiles are being armed with nuclear warheads; Iran now has enough enriched uranium for six nuclear bombs; and Iran has hundreds of terrorist cells in the U.S. and in Europe.
For decades I have tirelessly tried to warn the West about the ideology and agenda of the radicals ruling Iran. I have urged the West to help the people of Iran with their aspirations for freedom and democracy. I have tried to help the West understand the determination of these radicals in their quest to bring about death, destruction and disaster to the world.
However, the Western leaders have instead chosen to allow these radicals not only to slaughter the freedom loving people of Iran but to arm themselves to the teeth and to continue developing their nuclear program unabated, which only emboldens them and confirms their belief that Allah is protecting them — that they are on the right path.
