Anti-jihadi bill in the US

Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo has attracted a lot of publicity in his time, probably most notably for his method of deterring an Islamic nuclear attack. This is a not overly far-fetched possibility. Nuclear devices are all over the place since Pakistan stole plans and members of the the government there did a roaring trade selling them on to international luminaries such as Libya, Iran and North Korea.

Anyway, Tom's plan is to pre-set a number of devices in the US to automatically obliterate Mecca and Medina in the event of such an attack. Needless to say, all the PC alarms went off instantly, and he was hit by a fusillade of abuse and had numerous speaking engagements cancelled due to threats. Standard response, in other words, of the 'liberals' - you know, the defenders of free speech.

But was it such an outrageous idea? What if the jihadis knew for sure that this was the inevitable response? Do you think they'd ever launch the attack?

Anyway, Tom has come up with another idea now, a piece of legislation, in fact. The press release states:

“Amid disturbing revelations that the verdicts of Islamic Sharia courts are now legally binding in civil cases in the United Kingdom, U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) moved quickly today to introduce legislation designed to protect the United States from a similar fate.

“According to recent news reports, a new network of Sharia courts in a half-dozen major cities in the U.K. have been empowered under British law to adjudicate a wide variety of legal cases ranging from divorces and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.

“ ‘This is a case where truth is truly stranger than fiction,’” said Tancredo. ‘Today the British people are learning a hard lesson about the consequences of massive, unrestricted immigration.’ “Sharia law, favored by Muslim extremists around the world, often calls for brutal punsihment – such as the stoning of women who are accused of adultery or have children out of wedlock, cutting off the hands of petty thieves and lashings for the casual consumption of alcohol. Under Sharia law, a woman is often required to provide numerous witnesses to prove rape allegations against an assailant—a near impossible task.”

Tancredo, in his announcement, concludes with this important point:

’When you have an immigration policy that allows for the importation of millions of radical Muslims, you are also importing their radical ideology—an ideology that is fundamentally hostile to the foundations of western democracy—such as gender equality, pluralism, and individual liberty” said Tancredo. “’The best way to safeguard America against the importation of the destructive effects of this poisonous ideology is to prevent its purveyors from coming here in the first place.’”

The bill simply says that advocates of sharia would be ineligible for U.S. visas. And it would expel Sharia exponents already residing here.

Who can object?

Well, everyone that matters, in fact. It has no chance of succeeding. And can you imagine what would happen in dhimmi Europe if something similar were even mentioned?

How many people believe 9/11 was an inside job? Below are results of 8 polls by Zogby, Scripps, Angus Reid, 911Inquiry.Org and some non-scientific polls also.

Scientific Polls:

CBS/Angus Reid, Oct 2006
58% say that gov't officials are "lying" in the 9/11 Commission Report - only 16% say they are telling the truth when asked the question "When it comes to what they knew prior to September 11th, 2001, about possible terrorist attacks against the United States, do you think members of the Bush Administration are telling the truth, are mostly telling the truth but hiding something, or are they mostly lying?"
(LIHOP theory)

ZOGBY, Feb 2006
49.3% of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act".
(LIHOP theory)

36% of respondents overall said it is "very likely" or "somewhat likely" that federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon or took no action to stop them "because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East."
(Covers both LIHOP and MIHOP theories)

911INQUIRY.ORG, May 2004
63% of Canadians agreed that "Individuals within the U.S. Government including the White House had prior knowledge of the plans for the events of September 11th, and failed to take appropriate action to stop them". Additionally, 16% of Canadians believe that individuals within the U.S. Government were involved in the planning and execution of the events of September 11th. (47% LIHOP, 16% MIHOP, 63% combined)

Non-Scientific Polls:

MSNBC, Sept 2006 up to present
"Do you believe any of the conspiracy theories suggesting the U.S. government was somehow involved in 9/11?"
(Covers both LIHOP and MIHOP theories)
YES: 67%

CNN, Nov 2004
"Do you believe there is a US government cover up surrouning 911?"
(Question is too vague to specify LIHOP or MIHOP - could be interpreted as a coverup of incompetence only)
YES: 89%

"Was 9/11 an inside job?" (MIHOP)
YES: 66%
Link: removed

AM 640 Radio Toronto, August 2006
"Was 9/11 an inside job?" (MIHOP)
YES: 85%

When it comes to conspiracy theories the human mind seems to throw up a major percentage of people who seem unable to use common sense.I am 65 years old and in that short time I've heard them all, Most ( I stress Most) proponents of conspiracy theories seem to have run into a misfortune in their life and would like to blame there problems on the chosen one, whether it be Islam, Jews, the US Air force, Cell phone towers,The Illuminati ,Big business, The Catholic church,Oil money,Nazi's,Racism Etc
I personally think that it is all a load of bollocks and what we need is someone ( Everyone) to stand up and shout from the roof tops that it is all a load of bollocks.

Joe O'Neill says " Most ( I stress Most) proponents of conspiracy theories seem to have run into a misfortune in their life and would like to blame there problems on the chosen one"

So you think 66% of Americans and Canadians are in that position?

Muslims Against Sharia praise Congressman Tancredo's initiative. We advocated similar measures in the past and fully support "Gihad Prevention Act"

"Any person from a country where a substantial part of the population is pro-Sharia should not be allowed in the West, not only as an immigrant, but even as a visitor with a few exceptions, i.e., political asylum or as a diplomat etc. ... Every legal immigrant should be allowed to stay only if he/she did not display desire to establish a Sharia state in a host country. Any naturalized citizen who displays a desire to establish a Sharia state in a host country should have his/her citizenship revoked and promptly deported. I think the latter two groups is where the real danger lies." Linda Ahmed, FrontPage Magazine, July 24, 2008

"Anyone who proclaims Islamic extremist views should be tried for sedition, since we are at war with radical Islam, or at the very least, promptly deported." Khalim Massoud, FrontPage Magazine, September 9, 2008

AUSTRALIAN Holocaust revisionist Gerald Fredrick Toben has been arrested at London's Heathrow airport.

British police executed a European Union arrest warrant issued by German authorities at Heathrow late last night Melbourne time.

The arrest warrant accuses 64-year-old Toben of publishing material on the internet "of an anti-Semitic and/or revisionist nature".

The alleged Holocaust denier was to appear later at the City of Westminster Magistrates Court.

Toben, a former teacher in Victoria, has been involved in lengthy court proceedings in Australia for allegedly denying the Holocaust, and was jailed in Germany in 1999.

Teacher Paris - it's an absolute outrage that this guy Tobin has been arrested and charged. ANYBODY should be allowed deny ANYTHING. Let them face the public ridicule that would result, but dont try to silence them. That only raises suspicions, in my view.
