"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that." -- Martin Luther King Jr.

Muslims ever alert to any perceived slight to their culture or religion have taken yet another hostage in what appears to be a concerted assault on freedom of speech.

This time the fallen is acclaimed playwright/director Glyn O'Malley for the offense of writing Paradise, a 50-minute play about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict aimed at high-school audiences.

Another good article by Kathleen - and she's probably right, the "peace-loving" folks at C.A.I.R. won't like the light being shown on them. Tough - don't like it? Then leave.

His attackers called the play "poison" and said it would do more damage than an F16 fighter-bomber; they also equated suicide bombing to "Give me liberty or give me death."

Except that Patrick Henry didn't blow up pizza parlors full of Torries. (And neither did any of the other Patriots.)

Bush Praises Islam For It's Morality



God will destroy America by the hands of the Muslims....God will not give Japan or Europe the honor of bringing down the United States; this is an honor God will bestow upon Muslims." – Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan


Twenty-Year Plan for USA: Islam Targets America

The True Furqan can be located on HERE or HERE

The following is Dr. Shorrosh's analysis of Islamic invasion of America, the agenda of Islamists and visible methods to take over America by the year 2020! Will Americans continue to sleep through this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?

1. Terminate America's freedom of speech by replacing it with hate crime bills state-wide and nation-wide.

2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities to promote Islam as the original African-American's religion while Christianity is for the whites! Strange enough, no one tells the African-Americans that it was the Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves, neither the fact that in Arabic the word for black and slave is the same, "Abed."

3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.

4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office for favorable legislation to Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting.

5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the internet by buying the corporations or a controlling stock.

6. Yield to the fear of imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of America - the black gold. America's economy depends on oil,1000 products are derived from oil), so does its personal and industrial transportation and manufacturing -41% comes from the Middle East.

7. Yell, "foul, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime, Zionist, un-American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran" time Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena.

8. Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with Islamists who can articulate a marvelous and peaceful picture of Islam. Acquire government positions, get membership in local school boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical field, research and pharmaceutical companies. Take over the computer industry. Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect planners of Islamization in a discreet way.

Ever notice how numerous Muslim doctors in America are, when their countries need them more desperately than America?

9. Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via:

a. Massive immigration (100,000 annually since 1961)

b. No birth control whatsoever - every baby of Muslim parents is automatically a Muslim and cannot choose another religion later.

c. Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them (10,000 annually). Then divorce them and remarry every five years - since one cannot have the Muslim legal permission to marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in America.

d. Convert angry, alienated black inmates and turn them into militants (so far 2000 released inmates have joined Al Qaida world-wide). Only a few have been captured in Afghanistan and on American soil. So far - sleeping cells!

10. Reading, writing, arithmetic and research through the American educational system, mosques and student centers (now 1500) should be sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy. There are 300 exclusively Muslim schools with loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution.

11. Provide very sizeable monetary Muslim grants to colleges and universities in America to establish "Centers for Islamic studies" with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher education institutions.

12. Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, seminars, local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam, not the truth, which is Islam hijacked the terrorists. Furthermore in January of 2002, Saudi Arabia's Embassy in Washington mailed 4500 packets of the Quran, videos, promoting Islam to America's high schools--free. They would never allow us to reciprocate.

13. Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance towards the Muslims in America who are portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries.

14. Nullify America's sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize Americans of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls. (We have experienced this too often since 9-11.) 15. Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not American's justice system.

16. Open numerous charities throughout the U.S. but use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.

17. Raise interest in Islam on America's campuses by insisting that freshman take at least one course on Islam. Be sure that the writer is a bonafide American, Christian, scholarly and able to cover up the violence in the Quran and express the peaceful, spiritual and religious aspect only.

18. Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the faith and engender news in the media of their visibility.

19. Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them by hook or crook.

20. Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the US by spotlighting their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and ethic groups in America.

".. very scarey stuff."

With CAIR having it's bloody hands firmly around the throats of the American media, and deeply entrenched in the political system, I'd say less than 5% of Americans even have a clue regarding what goes on behind the doors of their local mosques.

Please get it to the President (if you can).

Funny!Since 9/11 the muslim community has remained silent when it comes to standing up for America but is very noisy when it comes to their ethnic nonsense!

If someone as fair-minded and gracious as Kathleen Parker, whom I admire even on those occasions when we disagree, is appearing on CAIR's "incitement watch list," then CAIR has forfeited all right to any residual benefit of the doubt. It is purely a hate-mongering organization that sails under a false flag of "fighting discrimination."

The days of American blindness toward its Islamic enemies are over, as CAIR and others will soon learn, if they haven't yet.

Just received an email reply from Kathleen thanking me for sending her your information. She had not seen this before and is dismayed at it's content. I think we will see more articles from her on this subject.

The play was inspired by the story of 18-year-old Palestinian suicide bomber Ayat al-Akhras, who blew herself up last year in Jerusalem, killing among others a 17-year-old Israeli girl, Rachel Levy. The two young women, who were pictured together in hundreds of newspapers and on magazine covers, could have been sisters.

In the human family, they were. They also were equal victims in a war surely neither of them inspired or understood.

That was the message O'Malley says he had hoped to convey. He wasn't trying to make a political point, but to humanize the people in this ongoing conflict. "I have tried to open it up ... and show forces apart from religious ones that any human can identify with: despair, loss, anger."
