The New Axis
Townhall.com ^ | June 10, 2013 | Ken Blackwell

Editor’s Note: This column was coauthored by Bob Morrison.

Mikey Weinstein and his militant atheizers in MRFF (the so-called Military Religious Freedom Foundation) are boasting of their ability to crush any outbreak of Christian expression in the military. Mikey and MRFF proudly call CAIR their "allies." CAIR is the Council on American-Islamic Relations. CAIR, as the former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy has noted, has close ties to Hamas. [The Grand Jihad, by Andrew C. McCarthy, p. 160.]

Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the international group, Muslim Brotherhood. These ties were exposed in the Holy Land Foundation trial, in which, McCarthy informs us, CAIR was named by the federal government as an unindicted co-conspirator. Together, these atheizers are joining with jihadists to form a New Axis.

What is missing in the ugly battle over religious freedom in the Armed Forces is a sense of history. How is it that MRFF views any public statement of Christian belief offensive to non-Christians? We have only to consider the First Summit. When President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill met in August. 1941, the U.S. was just months away from entering World War II.

The first act of these great world leaders was to join in worshipping God. On board the HMS Prince of Wales, in the dark and frigid waters of Placentia Bay, Newfoundland,Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill joined more than 4,000 American and British sailors in singing “Onward Christian Soldiers.”

Against whom were those soldiers and sailors fighting? Against the Hitler menace, against Nazidom. Or, as Churchill famously called it, nozzie-dom. Adolf Hitler was even then murdering Jews in Germany and in occupied Europe. And Hitler’s legions threatened the Jewish homeland in Palestine.

The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem gave strong his support to the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Mufti—an Islamist leader--was so taken with Hitler that he went to Berlin. There, he spent the entire war broadcasting to fellow Muslims, inciting them to murder Jews in the Middle East. There, the Mufti help recruit Muslims for the Hitler SS.

The first man to envision flaming towers collapsing in Manhattan was not Osama bin Laden. It was Adolf Hitler, who even then viewed Manhattan as a hostile territory dominated by Jews.

Churchill and Roosevelt on board that great warship reaffirmed the deepest values of our peoples as they stood against the evil of Nazidom. They knew that freedom required a strong foundation—and that foundation was to be religious liberty.

That’s why FDR provided his own strong endorsement of the millions of Bibles distributed to the military in WWII. That’s why President Roosevelt strongly defended religious liberty and spoke of “freedom from fear” as a war aim.

Today, MRFF boasts of striking fear into our military leaders. Mikey Weinstein thinks that open Christians are seditious, even traitors. He wants hundreds of them prosecuted in our military.

He has shown no similar concern about the murderous anti-Semitism of the Muslim Brotherhood. Even now, the Obama administration is giving $250 million in foreign aid to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood has already driven Jews out of Egypt. Now, they persecute Christians in Egypt.

But Mikey Weinstein shows no understanding of all this as he aligns with CAIR. As confirmed by the Mideast Forum, we know CAIR for years refused to recognize the threat to America posed by Osama bin Laden:

In October 1998—months after Osama bin Laden had issued his first declaration of war against the United States and had been named as the chief suspect in the bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa—CAIR demanded the removal of a Los Angeles billboard describing Osama bin Laden as "the sworn enemy," finding this depiction offensive to Muslims. CAIR also leapt to bin Laden's defense, denying his responsibility for the twin East African embassy bombings. CAIR's Hooper saw these explosions resulting from "misunderstandings of both sides."[57] Even after the September 11 atrocity, CAIR continued to protect bin Laden, stating only that "if [note the "if"] Osama bin Laden was behind it, we condemn him by name."[58] Not until December 2001, when bin Laden on videotape boasted of his involvement in the attack, did CAIR finally acknowledge his role.

Yet MRFF calls CAIR their “ally” and joins with them trying to enlist Secretary Hagel in their drive to suppress Christians. Mikey Weinstein has formed with CAIR a New Axis whose only real point of unity is their mutual hostility to Christians.

We must push back against this New Axis. We must not allow these militant atheizers and apologists to strip away the very freedoms that were secured for us by generations of

brave American warriors. Not everyone in the military shares our faith. We certainly know that. But everyone in the military shares a commitment to freedom, and that can never be secure where religious liberty is cast down.

We need to support efforts in Congress to protect religious freedom in our military.

We need to speak up when religious freedom is crushed by a few noisy militants claiming to represent a broad swath of Americans.

Go to any military cemetery. There, you will find abundant evidence that Christians and Jews together have fought for this country from its beginnings. The attempts by the New Axis, by Mikey Weinstein, MRFF and CAIR to suppress the truth to which those gravestones bear witness must not prevail.

Could this be the foundation of a new “Muslim caliphate?”

One example of how 501C4 works for the left. Which is why the attack on the right by the leftist IRS is so egregious.

The third link in the article is actually a better link than the one I attempted. Now if we just had a memorable picture of the Weinstein in question?

...I see this brainiac traces his cause to Gibson’s movie (remarkable how movies, snippets of facts infused with literary license, arouse so much passion in so many of those of few brain cells) and to the affirmation of his children, whose three sum views must count for more than thousands of other views he couldn’t find the time to seek out, so as to get a full picture of the situation...

...an outright lie, of course, as Gibson’s movie is the trendy fallback for secular Jews who are just interested in shooting off their mouths to highlight their liberation from their tradition...and who are just not content unless they are wading into someone’s business with their flapping gums...

Is that General Keith B. Alexander standing front and center in the photo? He is the current Director, National Security Agency (DIRNSA), Chief, Central Security Service (CHCSS) and Commander, United States Cyber Command. Assumed the rank of general in May 2010 and appointed commander USCC on that date.

“I see this brainiac traces his cause to Gibson’s movie”

I was especially incensed with his multiple links to the AF Academy and ten years in the AF as if that gave special license to go after all branches of the service. I’m guessing certain folks in Congress want to run the other way when they see him coming, except for the fact that his cause is getting air time and some apparent success.

Certainly an example of improper use of a law degree, IMHO and invoking the Constitution, and that donkey kissing leftist organization SPLC in the same sentence when engaged in his business is the height of chutzpah.

Certainly an example of improper use of a law degree,

...as well as an improper use of a functioning brain...funny how worked up atheists get over something they don’t place stock in; I, for instance, don’t think the theater offers much worth while, either for edification or entertainment unless you like seeing gay themes probed...but I don’t go ballistic when well meaning friends offer tickets to the wife and me, and I am forced into attending...I rationalize that some exposure to a personal nemesis is not going to pollute me...

...though ‘Chorus Line’ came awfully close to it...
