Islamic Community Forms Own Government, in the USA
Vinienco.com ^ | 11/18/2012 | n/a

Posted on 11/19/2012 6:57:06 PM PST by gorush

In Hancock, NY an islamic community that sits on 80 acres has decided to form its own government. They call their community Islamberg. They have their own mayor, deputy mayor and five council members. None of them are elected, of course.

Two can play at that game. We should start our own government and call it ‘Freerepublic!.

Working on it...

FREEDOM, RESPONSIBILITY and EXCELLENCE for EVERYONE PARTY

Party goals:
Set the United States on a path of continued improvement in personal freedoms, personal prosperity and personal responsibility.

The centerpiece of freedom is an economy that allows individuals and corporations to provide needed and wanted service and goods, to freely generate profit and income and to freely compete in a legal and regulatory environment that minimizes harmful side effects while maximizing productivity product diversity and freedom.

Philosophy:
People are happier if they are productive and can control their own lives.

Core concepts:
Government exists to provide the structure and stability needed for a prosperous society.
Appropriate government functions include:

National defense (includes control of borders and immigration)
Provide uniform standards of weights and measures
Provide a uniform legal structure that neither favors nor penalizes any American entity over another
Provide such infrastructure as is beyond the scope of private industry
Provide for the rights to free association, property, liberty and activity
Provide for honest dealings
We recognize that all government functions involve an element of force and sometimes require what we call “dreadful necessities”, those actions and activities that we as individuals find repugnant but the realities of imperfect politics and an imperfect world sometime require.
They include such things as:
The necessity to wage war when the alternatives are worse
The death penalty for extraordinary crimes
Abortion
Taxation
Dreadful necessities are to fall on all residents equally or to be so arranged as to not force individuals with strong moral objections to support.
For example, abortion, people who see this as an absolute woman's right will never agree with people who see it as murder. Politically there is no solution to this dilemma if everyone is forced to either support or repudiate the same side. One possible solution is:
Allow taxpayers opposed to abortion to withhold their tax dollars from being spent in support of those entities performing them. Specifically, allow individual taxpayers to block the use of their own personal tax dollars as funding that would otherwise be used to “perform, support, provide facilities and supplies for, or promote abortion of healthy babies".

Or require a positive action to fund abortions, allow taxpayers who support abortion to be the ones who fund it using a tax form tic box modeled on the Presidential Election Campaign fund:

Abortion on Demand Fund
Check here if you or your spouse, if filing
jointly, want $3 to go the this fund.
Checking a box below will not change
your taxes or refund. [ ] You [ ] Spouse
Similar arrangements can be made on most “hot button” issues.
Taxation:
We recognize the dreadful necessity of taxation. As such, taxation needs to be as simple, painless and even as possible. Taxation must only be used to raise revenue to fund necessary governmental functions. The tax code needs to be free of all the artificial constructs intended as “social engineering”. It is no business of the government if you choose any particular industry or lifestyle. Accordingly we propose the following tax structure:
1. Eliminate ALL current IRS regulations.

2. Set the individual tax rate at 10% regardless of income.

a) Perquisites are taxed at 10% of cost.

b) Tax only the increase in value of any investment, and only when that investment is cashed out.
3. Withhold at the rate of 11%, to get a refund you have to file taxes, but there is no legal imperative to file.

4. Since owners and shareholders are already taxed on their individual incomes, eliminate ALL corporate tax.
a) Eliminate ALL depletion allowances and depreciation allowances.

b) American taxes are only collected on money earned in America.
5. Tax ALL money coming into the country at 0% (yes, ZERO%).

6. Tax ALL money leaving the country at 10%.
Note that this removes the government form the marriage and child rearing business. You want to get married? Your business, it is no business of the IRS, it doesn't affect your taxes. You want one child or a dozen? Have as many as you can raise, that's not the government’s business, that's yours.

Charity:
Governments don't do charity, governments do force. Americans need to return to individual charity and caring. There was a time not all that long ago, when we freely donated to our churches and charities, when we helped our neighbors one-on-one. We still see that in any number of drives to raise money for a child's cancer treatment. We still see that in private fundraising for stray cats and polar bears. We still see that in disaster relief for third world countries. We can restore true charity, rather than heartless compulsory welfare.

Reciprocal International Relations:
Open and friendly to all who are open and friendly to us, restrictive and hostile where we face restrictions and hostility. The goal of our diplomacy is wealthy and happy friends, recognized wherever they are, and created wherever we can, and utterly destroyed enemies where we must. (sidebar: Like Von Clausewitz, we recognize that diplomacy and war are part of the same continuum. The Departments of State and Defense will become one department)

I wonder if Planned Parenthood is going to put in their services in this city. How about the 1st Baptist Church, can they buy property here. Do they allow the 2nd and 1st amendment to the Constitution, someone needs to call the A.C.L.U. and get them to do a test case.

The constitution doesn't particularly care for this:

Article. IV.

[...]

Section. 2.

The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.

[...]

Section. 3.

New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.

[...]

Section. 4.

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.

...2009: The sentry post is gone and no guards are in sight. A handful of children play in the mud and muck before rows of rusty old trailers and a few women in full burqas saunter along the rutty dirt road that leads to the heart of the squalid Muslim compound. Young men in Islamic garb no longer congregate before the makeshift mosque, and no students are in attendance at the one room shack that serves as Sheikh Gilani's “International Quranic Open University”. The few residents who remain, clearly are not environmentalists. Sewage seeps from septic tanks and outhouses into the creek that flows at the base of the settlement. Bags of rotting garbage remain stacked between the trailers. And the once pristine countryside is now littered with junk cars, moldy mattresses, empty tanks of propane, and old appliances...

I don’t like it either. It’s a political solution, not a permanent fix.

Think of it like the 3/5th rule. A bitter necessity for the sake of the Union that set the stage for the ultimate elimination of slavery.

There is something a whole lot worse than this, but similar, I read about going on.

In New Rochelle, NY - a town/city a few miles north of NYC - the UN has actually taken over the town. (Kind of a nice suburb of NYC and handy to downtown.

IIRC people who are UN got themselves elected by misrepresenting themselves or just fraud. It is seen to be the UN start of something - like taking us over ?

Some heroic people there tried very hard and at great risk to take back their town/gov and suffered for that.

(Now it has got me wondering how that is going, since I am from that area. It was some time ago I read that and it made me so upset I rather put it out of my mind. Now is the time for PATRIOTS.)

I found the New Rochelle threads, April 2012. Here is a SNIP from an article:

Gulag Bound ^ | April 23, 2012 | Sher Zieve
Posted on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 3:10:13 AM by Eye of Newt

The revolutionary and Luciferian (he dedicated his book “Rules for Radicals” to Lucifer…aka Satan) Saul Alinsky layed it out. “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism,” Alinsky taught. “They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.” Alinsky also taught that community organizing (aka ‘teaching radicalism and Satanic concepts’) must begin at the local level and in a forceful manner. Karl Marx, his partner Frederich Engels and Vladimir Lenin wrote and believed the same. Adolph Hitler, along with Marx and the rest, also believed that environmental elements and ‘saving the planet’ were excellent ploys to be brought into every speech and were needed in order to shame and bully a population into submission. It worked—and still works—remarkably well.

Today, in the USA and the rest of the world, we now have the UN Agenda 21—which, in New Rochelle, NY (as well as other towns and cities throughout the nation) is attempting implementation via ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). At one fell swoop, a city becomes part of the “international community” and no longer accountable to its State or nation. And without the population realizing it, the city becomes part of the international order and one-world government commences with its attendant end to freedom, self-determination and the right to make any life decisions on one‘s own.

Thus, the end of liberty—and life as we know it—begins.

So it is in New Rochelle, New York. ~~~~~~~~UNQUOTE

As long as you are fantasizing, why compromise with the baby-killers?

Ever occur to you that abortion is an evil many orders of magnitude more monstrous than slavery? If getting rid of slavery took the slaying of 650,000 Americans, what kind of bloodbath will be necessary to force the baby-killers to let go of power?

Segregation was brought down with about 2000 people getting arrested at lunch counters. During the Rescue Movement of the 1980s, about 80,000 people were arrested at abortion clinics—and the Rescue Movement was totally unsuccessful at winning over “pro-life” Congressmen and Senators, and only one bishop in the U.S. took part. The Congress passed the FACE Act, and the bishops never raised a peep in protest.

Stopping abortion in the U.S. will require the violent death of millions of people in a war and probably the formal, definitive end of the so-called United States.

If such a nefarious plot were to be hatched. I would recommend a Pave Pat Blue, Fuel/Air Explosive rolled out of the back of a C-130 between 3 and 5,000 feet AGL.

Diverting from Indian Town Gap, PA. Army/Air Force Reservation. Where all kinds of flares and munitions are regularly tested. For about 40 minutes. And set for ground detonation in the center of town.

It’s the closest thing to nuking something from orbit. Just to be sure.

And so it begins:

What Islam Isn’t
 
By Dr. Peter Hammond
FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, April 21, 2008  
The following is adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:
Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’

When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

United States — Muslim 1.0%
Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1%-2%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — Muslim 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana — Muslim 10%
India — Muslim 13.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 10%
Russia — Muslim 10-15%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.
‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel. – Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’
It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

I'm not quite sure why you think the Founding Fathers made a mistake.

Because they were willing to make a small compromise we got a United States, the United States became the first country to eliminate slavery, and now slavery is not legal in any country on earth.

Had they taken a hard line, like you are, there would be no union and slavery would continue unabated.

Had they fully buckled, the de facto state we have today with regard to abortion, and allowed slaves to be fully counted, the slave states would have had overwhelming power in congress and we'd still have slavery by "popular" vote, just like we currently have abortion.

Somehow you see this as a mistake, rather than a recognition of current politics, with setting the stage to change that reality into a better one.

You seem to prefer the current status quo, the one that forces you, me and millions of others to pay for abortions not only here, but world wide, to any compromise that sets the stage for progress.

The same status quo that allowed the worst president in history to get re-elected by women "voting as if their lady parts depended on it". That status quo.

I could have not settled for a partial victory, I could, like you, insist on all or nothing. I would get, like you gotten, nothing.

Instead, I'm willing to make it so the only people who pay for other people's abortions are the ones who want to.

And they are liberals. They don't want to pay for abortions themselves, they want you to pay for them. Do you see the corner they're painted into? It's one thing for them to be "charitable" with your money, and as long as your money is there, their "charity" is limitless.

It's another thing entirely to make them take out their own wallets, and, well, that will get old really fast.

It's not a false peace, it's a step towards ultimate victory.

Or, we could continue our current death spiral and Arthur McGowan gets his wish: a world without abortion.

It'll be a world wide caliphate, but there won't be any abortions.

I prefer a few more bloodless baby steps, and a freer end game.

YMMV

I’m trying to figure out a way to recognize that islam is not a religion for the purposes of the FREEP platform, without specifically naming islam.

I’m leaning towards limiting the definition of religion to exclude any organization that advocates violence as a means of conversion.

Every religion has on occasion resorted to violence, but as far as I know, only one current religion has it as a core value.

Help me here?

That report I posted was from 2009. Conditions may have changed?
But yes, it’s possible some went to Syria from there; there has been one Australian national Syrian killed in Syria recently, his family says he was just there helping the poor people in the refuge camps and was caught in cross-fire.
He became a martyr and went to allah I suppose. These manufactured conflicts seem to hoover them up from all over.
