While on Twitter I read this message from a follower, “Tomorrow beginning at 6 am Tweetfest to #SaveTheChristians”

So, I will admit, I have not vetted the group behind this effort but…WHO CARES!

Someone – somewhere must speak out!

Christians across the globe are being slaughtered in record numbers, many of them by Islamic extremists.

I have been very disappointed with the lack of outrage to the horrific slaughter of Christians lately.

Apparently,I am not the only one.

Yesterday, Kirsten Powers published an Op-Ed where she shamed President Obama for his failure to speak out:

    If a Christian mob on a ship bound for Italy threw 12 Muslims to their death for praying to Allah, does anyone think the president would have been so disinterested? When three North Carolina Muslims were gunned down by a virulent atheist, Obama rightly spoke out against the horrifying killings. But he just can’t seem to find any passion for the mass persecution of Middle Eastern Christians or the eradication of Christianity from its birthplace.

    Religious persecution of Christians is rampant worldwide, as Pew has noted, but nowhere is it more prevalent than in the Middle East and Northern Africa, where followers of Jesus are the targets of religious cleansing.

Talk Show Host, Michael Savage recently asked, where the righteous Jews were who are not speaking out against the persecution of Christians from ISIS or ISIL today?

The “never again” is happening again today,” he said on his radio show.

Christians in Texas rallied in Dallas last fall to bring the plight of the persecuted Christians to the public. Despite the group sending out press releases to every news outlet in the state of Texas including e-mails and phone calls only a few media outlets bothered to show up at the rally. In addition, even though hundreds came out for the event, there are many more Christians in the are who did not bother.

A new campaign making its way across America hopes to bring awareness to the persecuted Christians. The campaign asks believers to wear orange jumpsuits to show solidarity with the martyrs and has been organized by D.C. pastor, Rev. Patrick Mahoney.

Months ago, Rev. Mahoney and his supporters challenged the National Organization for Women to speak out on behalf of Christian women who were sold into sex slavery by the Islamic terrorist group, ISIS.

The feminist group virtually ignored the protesters as did the news media.

It will be interesting what Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and others say as they hit the campaign trail.

ISIS Heart of terror book

An encouraging audio interview with a member from the organization, Back to Jerusalem, says that Christians are hoping to evangelize ISIS. The author of the Book, ISIS the Heart of Terror, says that they have confirmed at least one ISIS convert after love was shown him from the very people ISIS had planned to persecute.

The #SavetheChrtistians hashtag follows other efforts such as the #WeAreN and #WeAreNazarene which hoped to show solidarity with the Christians in Iraq who were some if the first to be slaughtered by ISIS.

Capture

Hopefully, as others learn a way that they can speak out- they will do so.

‘Black Separatists’ tracked by FBI

Posted in Black Crime, FBI, Islam, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on June 1, 2012 by saynsumthn

According to the ACLU:

( ACLU) Manufacturing a “Black Separatist” Threat and Other Dubious Claims: Bias in Newly Released FBI Terrorism Training Materials
By Michael German, Senior Policy Counsel, ACLU Washington Legislative Office at 1:31pm

In a throwback to the J. Edgar Hoover-era COINTELPRO investigations targeting civil rights and anti-war activists, the FBI is now training its agents to be on the lookout for “Black Separatist” terrorists, according to FBI training materials released today by the ACLU. These new disclosures, obtained through Freedom of Information Act litigation, are the latest in a growing flood of FBI training materials that include factually flawed and biased information.

The FBI’s apparent concern over a so-called “Black Separatist Threat” first came to light last year, when the ACLU released a 2009 FBI Atlanta Intelligence Notethat purported to examine this “threat,” in part by charting the growth of the black population in Georgia from 2000 through 2015.

It is hard to see how the relative size of the black population has any bearing on the number of alleged “Black Separatists” in a given area, much less the threat they pose, and this question is not answered in the document. We previously raised concerns that the memo, while heavily redacted, focuses undue attention on the First Amendment-protected activities of the groups it identifies as “Black Separatists,” including appearances at political campaign events and protests against police violence, rather than any alleged acts of terrorism.

But the Atlanta Intelligence Note raised a more fundamental question: who are “Black Separatists” and is there any evidence they pose a terrorist threat? Internet searches of “Black Separatist terrorism,” “Black Separatist bombing,” and “Black Separatist shooting” fail to bring up any recent incidents that could be fairly described as terrorist violence. No “Black Separatist” terrorist incidents are included in the FBI’s list of “Major Terrorism Cases: Past and Present,” nor on the more comprehensive list of terrorist attacks going back to 1980, which are detailed in an FBI report entitled “Terrorism 2002-2005.” While Black nationalist groups like the Black Panthers and the Black Liberation Army were certainly involved in political violence back in the 1970s, they no longer exist, and the last acts of violence attributed to either group were more than two decades ago.

So why are Atlanta FBI agents now searching for black separatist threats? Because the FBI appears to be training them to believe there is one using factually flawed materials.

Newly-released FBI domestic terrorism training presentations on “Black Separatist Extremists” juxtapose decades-old examples of violence by the Black Panthers and the Black Liberation Army with unorthodox and controversial beliefs expressed by a number of different modern groups to suggest, without evidence, that these latter-day groups pose a similar threat of violence. The FBI admits that the organizations it calls “Black Separatists” have no unifying theme or mission, stating “specific goals historically fluctuated between group to group,” but suggests that “all share racial grievances against the U.S., most seek restitution, or governance base [sic] on religious identity or social principals [sic].” This broad description could of course cover many different groups from the fringe to the mainstream, exposing them all to heightened government surveillance. Related counterterrorism training presentations indicate the FBI has also invented a new class of domestic terrorists in 2009 called “American Islamic Extremists,” which it describes as American Muslims who mix “Islamic theology with some levels of black separatism, anarchism, and racial rhetoric.”

These FBI training materials, obtained through Freedom of Information Act litigation by the ACLU of Northern California, the Asian Law Caucus and the San Francisco Bay Guardian, raise three primary concerns. First, for the FBI to produce training programs that portray groups as violent threats based on old and misleading evidence and false associations is improper, and can only misdirect investigative resources. And because the groups highlighted have little in common save their racial identities, these flawed trainings will encourage racial profiling, rather than fact-based investigations. Second, the presentations’ focus on the unconventional ideologies of these modern groups tends to suggest a direct connection between belief and violence, which will again lead to inappropriate investigations based on First Amendment-protected activities rather than evidence of criminal conduct. Finally, even where these inappropriate investigations based on race and ideology fail to find evidence of violence, under its new rules the FBI may continue to pursue these groups under what it calls a “disruption strategy.”
The FBI’s disruption strategy is laid out in a 2009 memorandum from the Counterterrorism Division to all field offices instituting a “baseline collection plan,” which itemizes the types of information that FBI agents should seek during investigations of suspected terrorists. The plan describes implementation of a “disruption strategy” that is eerily reminiscent of the COINTELPRO-eradisruption activities that were specifically designed to suppress First Amendment activity. The 2009 FBI memorandum states that when “the risk to public safety is too great, or if all significant intelligence has been collected, and/or the threat is resolved,” agents may employ a disruption strategy “including arrests, interviews, or source-driven operations to effectively disrupt subject’s activities” [emphasis added]. This means that groups the FBI believes, but cannot prove, are involved in terrorism (perhaps because they aren’t) can still be investigated and targeted for sting operations or other invasive techniques, not to mitigate a threat, but to disrupt their activities.

9/11 anniversary: Muslim protesters burn US flag outside embassy in London

9/11 anniversary: Muslim protesters burn US fla…, posted with vodpod

From UK’s Telegraph ( HERE )

JihadWatch reports it this way:

Islamic supremacism, triumphalism, and hurling insults against the soldiers who defend the rights they have chosen to mock and abuse. “9/11 anniversary: Muslim protesters burn US flag outside embassy in London,” by Andy Bloxam for the Telegraph, September 11:

A number of radical Islamic groups including Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) gathered outside the embassy on the 10th anniversary of the attacks.

The group of around 100 men shouted “USA terrorists“, brandished anti-American placards and chanted through a loudhailer.

Several members of the Muslim groups made anti-American speeches following the flag burning.

One said: “You will always face suffering, you will always face humiliation, unless you withdraw your troops from Muslim lands.”

Another declared that America had been “defeated in Iraq and defeated in Afghanistan“.

Members of the group publicly burned a poppy on Armistice Day in a similar stunt.

However, a small opposing group of Muslims – some of whom had travelled hundreds of miles to rebut the extremists – staged a counter-demonstration nearby, holding up placards reading “Muslims Against Extremism” and “If You Want Sharia, Move To Saudi”.

Abdul Sallam, 41, who was waving a sign that read “Keep The Silence”, travelled down to London from his home in Glasgow to show the strength of his feelings.

He said: “I’m a Muslim. What they’re doing is bringing shame on all Muslims. This is not part of the teachings of Islam.

“Islam teaches you that when you see anything bad or evil, you should speak out against it.

“If the moderate Muslims all came out and spoke out, that would defeat them.

“I am proud to be British. I love my country. All these people are doing is breaking Britain apart.”

One of the Grosvenor Square memorial service attendees, who did not want to be named, said the protesters should be stopped from standing just across the road from the embassy and using a loud megaphone.

The man, whose cousin died in the terror attacks, said: “They shouldn’t be allowed to do it. It’s very disrespectful. It’s too loud.”

He added: “They can say what they want but not with the loudspeaker.”
