    Dr. Andrew Bostom is one of my favorite resources on the topic of Islam. Another example of his revealing insight about ISLAMOPHOBIA is found in this video clip from November 2012:

    • Andrew Bostom: Sharia Versus Freedom - discusses the term "Islamophobia"

      rough transcript:

      Dr. Andrew Bostom: "I think it's very helpful to point that out to people that love to spray charges of, you know, Islamophobia. And actually, you know, when we get back into the realm of traditionalist Islam "Islamophobia" has a whole different context. Here's where we can see the Muslim Brotherhood operate.

      The Muslim Brotherhood's emblem comes from Qur'an 860.

      The emblem of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its founder, Hassan al-Banna

      It's literally to strike terror into the heart of the infidel. That's actually the definition of Islamophobia.

      In other words, to make the infidel be fearful and submit.

      Now, sometimes making the infidel fearful is a way to conquer them without bloodshed and that's considered to be very very noble.

      In our age, it seems to be morphing now into the idea of shaming and getting societies, governments to submit.

      Traditionally, and then of course we see it with the more violent jihadist groups. Islamophobia is noble. We're having trouble defining things you know under the guise of political correctness Islamophobia has this other meaning we're unfortunately familiar with. At the same time, it has a very concrete meaning which another way of forcing submission. I think it's important to keep that in mind when we're dealing in these propaganda wars.

    This is a quote of a comment placed on one of George Webb's videos on June 15th...
    ""NOW, we are really talking Deep State: Mueller is the grandnephew of Richard Bissell, the fired CIA director of plans --- fired by President Kennedy before his assassination. Mueller's wife's maiden name is Cabell: another CIA deputy director fired by President Kennedy was Gen. Cabell, whose brother Earl Cabell was mayor of Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963! And Mueller's family wealth comes from his mother's side, the Truesdale side of the family: something to do with helping out blowing up competitors' refineries for the Rockefeller family and being awarded with a railroad? And Mueller was appointed chief of the criminal division of the DOJ under President Geo. H.W. Bush when the BCCI investigation began getting closer to the presidency - - covered on the the chief enforcement officer side at Treasury by having John Walker, cousin to the Bush-Walker family, of course, in that position. And it was Judge John Walker who would later have clerking for him James Comey, future director of the FBI! It's a small world after all . . . it's a small world after all . . . sing it with me now . . . it's a small. . . small. . . world!"the founder of Crowdstrike worked with Mueller in the FBI."

    A brief lesson for all Western nations as quoted from: Dr. Andrew Bostom’s “Sharia vs. Freedom – The Legacy of Islamic Totalitarianism”

    Chapter 36. SAYONARA SHARIA

    Japanese Lessons, Lost?

    Figure 36.1 A United States War Department poster highlighting the wrenching reforms of Japan’s state religion, Shintoism (I.e., eliminating Shinto State militarism, and its indoctrination within Japanese schools – and the guarantee of true religious freedom (including Shintoism as a private, personal faith), under the Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers (SCAP), primarily, General Douglas MacArthur. Reproduced from William P. Woodard, The Allied Occupation of Japan and Japanese Religions 1945-1952, Leiden, 1972, frontiespiece, in ref. 2, p. 97)

    Professor John David Lewis, in a recent analysis dedicated to the late General Paul Tibbets (d. November 2, 2007), commander of the B-29 Enola Gay, which bombed Hiroshima, analyses how the defeated Japanese reformed their nation dramatically, “under stern American guidance.”

    Central to this process was a complete de-legitimization and disenfranchisement of Japan’s religio-political state religion, post-Meiji Restoration (1868) Shintoism. These wrenching reforms of Japanese Shintoism included eliminating Shinto State militarism, and its indoctrination within Japanese schools concurrent with the guarantee of true religious freedom --- including the practice of Shintoism as a private, demilitarized, and depoliticized personal faith ---under the Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers (SCAP --- see poster, illustrated herein), primarily, General Douglas MacArthur.

    State Department chief of the Division of Far Eastern Affairs John Carter Vincent elucidated this policy---ever cognizant of the dangers of State Shinto---which nevertheless guaranteed the private practice of Shinto. Vincent’s views were quoted in this October 1945 telegram sent by the US secretary of state James Byrnes to General Douglas MacArthur, establishing basic US policy goals toward Shintoism, while clarifying for MacArthur and his subordinates the fundamental principles to attain those goals:

    Shintoism, insofar as it is a religion of individual Japanese, is not to be interfered with. Shintoism, however, insofar as it is directed by the Japanese government, and as a measure enforced from above the government, is to be done away with. People would not be taxed to support National Shinto and there will be no place for Shintoism in the schools. Shintoism as a state religion --- National Shinto, that is --- will go. . . Our policy on this goes beyond Shinto . . .The dissemination of Japanese militaristic and ultra-nationalistic ideology in any form will be completely suppressed. And the Japanese Government will be required to cease financial and other support of Shinto establishments.

    Immediately thereafter directives were issued which terminated various educational platforms for the indoctrination of students into Shintoism, and fired their purveyors. Textbooks were rewritten, and student education retooled to emphasize “the importance of challenging dogma, and of forming their own opinions. As John Lewis observes, when Theodore Geisel ---Dr. Seuss --- visited Japan a mere eight years after the Japanese surrender, and initiation of these educational reform programs, asking students to draw pictures of what they desired to be when they grew up,

    The children drew hundreds of pictures of doctors, statesmen, teachers, nurses, and even wrestlers. Only on student wanted to be a soldier --- and he wanted to be General MacArthur. The values of these children were already far different from those of their parents a decade earlier, when the Japanese dreamed of dying on the battlefield for an Emperor-god.

    Sixty years later the lessons from the era Japanese reconstruction have been ignored entirely following the US – led military interventions in Afghanistan, now under the post-Taliban Karzai regime, and Iraq, after the toppling of Saddam Hussein. Indeed the post WWII paradigm of neutralizing Japan’s bellicose, religio-political creed opf Shintoism has been turned on its head with regard to Islam and the theocratic Islamic legal code, sharia --- imbued with jihad, and completely antithetical to modern human-rights constructs.

    *****

    The US developed a program to utterly and totally DELEGITIMZE political Shinto in Japan after WWII and decades later results universally speaks for itself.

    This nation as well as all Western civilization must accept that Islam is a religion as violent and dangerous as Shintoism and must be utterly and totally delegitimized to win the war for humanity and civilization as we know it.

    To continue to allow the practice of political Islam is the equivalent of legitimizing and legalizing sedition/treason as an act of faith.

    Enough already.

    Despite our efforts at vaccinating our puppy, treating our property for ticks and other insects, treating the puppy with preventative tick/flea treatments - my dog got Lyme disease and the onset was fast. Diagnosis was quick too.

    The pharmaceutical company which manufactured the Lyme vaccine paid for my dog's treatment which appears to have been effective (this took place 4 years ago when my dog was less than a year old).

    Since then, my dog is less active and is almost completely blind - although the canine opthamologist states this pups loss of eyesight was not related to lyme disease, this poor dog has had a run of bad luck.

    Last summer, I had this precious lap dog resting on my lap when I noticed some strange movement by his floppy ear. I lifted his ear and was stunned to discover a ping pong sized ball of moving ticks actively moving away from sunlight. UGH! Fortunately, a rapid hose down and flea bath eliminated that birthing army of disgusting ticks permanently and no harm came to anyone or any animal in my residence. We reside in the heart of Lyme disease territory - which is why we take multiple precautions against it.

    As for that 200 year old invite from Jefferson – there wasn’t much accomodation made at all as reflected here . . .

    Monticello.org: Dealings with Mellimelli, Colorful Envoy from Tunis

    May as well remember this muhammedan cretin as “smelli-smelli” since

    ” guards had to be posted outside his lodgings to turn away the curious”

    due to his

    “generous use of scented rose oil “

    olfactory masque easing fulfillment of his

    “. . .request for “concubines” as a part of his accommodations . . .”

    As for the sunset dinner with Jefferson . . .

    Jefferson’s invitation to the President’s House on December 9 changed the time of dinner from the usual “half after three” to “precisely at sunset.”

    Northeast ‘Dec. 7th Earliest Sunset Of The Year’

    This would put the time of sunset, on December 9th, 1805 at 4:46pm, a total of one hour sixteen minutes later than usual. Hardly a remarkable alteration considering the lack of technology for travel, preparation and presentation of a state sponsored dinner.

    Regardless, Jefferson eventually came to his senses and took care of business with America’s First War on Terror @ The Halls of Tripoli...a fact which President Trump could reiterate/celebrate patriotically instead.

    correction to post 151 regarding Webb's arrest - not DUI/DWI related...he explains later in the video:

    • Getting the Dirty Bomb Story Straight :

      Jason Goodman:
      ”Was it a DUI or was it not ?”
      George Webb:
      ”...It was not. I will say this - my car was off. The keys were in the center console. So I was trying to meet with a source. I was trying to meet with the source for the NADRA program not NADRA specifically but at the joint Spectrum Center in Columbus Ohio. I had reason to believe I had two contacts in Zanesville. I said that when I went into Zanesville. I was meeting with one of them. Most of the night the law enforcement official, the second one I was trying to meet. I had been given in, I went into the hotel. I came back out to my car. I was given an indication that the person wanted me to follow them. I followed. I went and the car you know I was in the hunt I was in the kind of hot pursuit of the story. I had been sending signals earlier in the day, please let's get together. It's kind of the end of the day. It's early in the morning actually. I went about maybe half a mile and then I said up I'm not going to drive anymore. I'm not going to chase this person. I'm going to park this car. I'm going to turn off the engine and I put the keys in the console.”
      Jason Goodman:
      ”So is there any breathalyzer involved?”
      George Webb:
      ”Well, I refused the breathalyzer and the reason why I did refuse the breathalyzer was it's not relevant. I wasn't - what the judge told me today was you were not you're not - there's no law against sleeping in your car. “
      Jason Goodman:
      ”So, why did they do that, why...”
      George Webb:
      ”Well , you know, when, I believe when the officer rolled up, you know, he basically - I rolled the window down. You know, he said ‘have you've been drinking?’ - you know, I'm not going to answer that question right now. But, I do - one of the experiences I have learned from this is if you show any weaknesses and and that is probably my Achilles heel right? -that they will they will be exploited. Exploit. Exploit. Exploit. And it just so happens it was a day before me going to Joint Spectrum Center which was really the last piece of the puzzle and I just want to let all folks know that regardless of what happens with it with my future I plead I pled not guilty and what it regardless what happens with the future trial date I made the decision to discontinue the use of alcohol just for the sheer fact that it is Achilles heel that can be easily be exploited.”

    Update - FWIW, George Webb spent the last two evenings roughing it behind bars in Ohio pulled over allegedly for DWI but answering local authorities questions about this Charleston Harbor tip (now characterized as a false alarm). In this video clip/rough transcript segment he explains further:

    • Getting the Dirty Bomb Straight
      George Webb:

      "There was an important article written by a great journalist about the Gulftainer Corporation which is this UAE corporation that manages all these ports in the U.S. Port Canaveral, I think of being the first one. The article basically says, 'What could possibly go wrong?'(Center for Security Policy). The article cites that not only the UAE managing US ports, but one of the key individuals is the chief nuclear scientist for Iran [see image of pdf report

      Now you take a very large ship which you can hide fissionable material in there, and then you have one of the people on the board being an Iranian nuclear scientist - which is a terrorist nation, it sets the stage for a potential terrorist event. Again, we shared that information, but we did not, still at this point, call the Coast Guard.

      The Gulftainer information with the Iranian scientist, the Awan Brothers with all of their ties to Pakistani ISI - we just presented that information.

      Now, someone through the fleet application (online search site) said they - I believe it was Joe Napoli said 'hey, the Maersk is actually eight minutes outside of Charleston, South Carolina.' Then somebody gave the long/lat of the ship location. I said that sounds like it's pretty darn close to Fort Sumter which is out in Charleston Harbor - I've taken the tour, it's a very good tour, you should take it. It turns out, that is where it was.

      So, again, we did not call the Coast Guard in the Port of Charleston. Two other individuals watching the show called the Port the Coast Guard just to alert them that the Maersk was coming in and there may be potential issues with the Maersk.

      They only called after we said two things. Look for an Awan Brothers shipment in the Bill of Lading through import genius (online search app) - so very defined - and then we also said look for what's called a 'diplomatic cover' or what they call a 'diplomatic pouch'. Even though, you think of as like a FedEx pouch now it's the size of an entire shipping container. They've expanded it over time to now say you can have an entire container as a diplomatic pouch. And what that diplomatic pouch means is you can't - Customs can't pierce the veil of diplomatic pouch. So even if they did search the vessel, which I think blew up the search far beyond the very targeted, laser focused recommendations we had. Even if they did find a diplomatic container - they could not open it. "

    Reuters: Mideast firm to operate new cargo terminal at Port Canaveral, Florida

    A Middle Eastern-owned company landed its first North American port operations contract on Monday, a 35-year agreement with Port Canaveral on Florida's east coast.

    Under terms of the lease, Gulftainer, a wholly-owned subsidiary of United Arab Emirates-based Crescent Enterprises, will invest up to $100 million in equipment and employees to operate a container and cargo terminal under construction at Port Canaveral, just south of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Kennedy Space Center.

    "Our intent is to reach up into that southeast manufacturing belt and into the traditional heartland markets for distribution and logistics,” Port Canaveral Chief Executive John Walsh said at a signing ceremony.

    “We’re well-positioned to reach well in through the Caribbean Islands, Latin America, South America, over to Africa, and pick up the global trade routes to northern Europe, into the Middle East and Asia,” Walsh said.

    Port directors considered several international operators before selecting Gulftainer for the contract, which was not competitively bid.
