Want to know? Read The Little Green Book

The Obama administration and the liberal media apparently have not read or ignore the The Little Green Book. This is negligence.

We now have Egypt in possession of over a billion dollars worth of military hardware aligning itself with the greatest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. For 30 years there was a peace accord in place with Israel. Now the Middle East is dangerously unbalanced. Yet, we just gave Egypt $1 billion! And Obama wants to give $450 million more!

 The Little Green Book is a collection of fatawah handed down by the most prominent and arguably one of the most influential Muslim clerics in modern history — the Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ruhollah Mosavi Khomeini, commonly known as the Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the current Islamic Republic of Iran.

 This is direct a quote from Ayatollah Khomeini:

“Jihad means the conquest of all non-Muslim territories. Such a war may well be declared after the formation of an Islamic government worthy of that name, at the direction of the Imam or under his orders. It will then be the duty of every able-bodied adult male to volunteer for this war of conquest, the final aim of which is to put Qur’anic law in power from one end of the earth to the other. But the whole world should understand that the universal supremacy of Islam is considerably different from the hegemony of other conquerors. It is therefore necessary for the Islamic government first to be created under the authority of the Imam in order that he may undertake this conquest, which will be distinguishable from all other wars of conquest, which are unjust and tyrannical and disregard the moral and civilizing principles of Islam.”

 Here’s another from the Founding Father: “Islamic faith and justice demand that within the Muslim world, anti-Islamic governments not be allowed to survive.”

The Ayatollah continues to warn against non-Islamic governments with: “... we have no recourse other than to overthrow all governments that do not rest on pure Islamic principles, and are thus traitorous, rotten, unjust, and tyrannical administrative systems that server them.”  

Does the the current administration not understand this sentence? “That is not only our duty in Iran, but it is also the duty of all Muslims in the world, in all Muslim countries, to carry the Islamic political revolution to its final victory.”

How bout this one?  “It is forbidden for any Muslim state to have commercial and diplomatic relations with countries which play the role of puppets for the great powers — as is the case with Israel — and it is the duty of all Muslims to oppose such relations by every means available; any businessman having commercial dealing with Israel, its representatives, or its agents is a traitor to Islam and to all other Muslims, because he is contributing to the destruction of Islam. It is the duty of all Muslims to sever their relations with such traitors, whether they be states or businessmen, with a view to forcing them to repent.”

The naivete and incompetence of this administration is breathtaking. To have us believe that 10,000 Muslims in 21 countries were watching YouTube clips on their Ipads is absurd!

The propagandist media needs to be on ballot and needs to be removed from it’s offices. They are dangerous to our continued existence.

To portray the recent uprisings as response to a nine-minute video and not a celebration of the disasters of 911 and the Democratic Party Convention’s spiking of the football is, as well, criminal.

 Read the book!

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.

    Now that Maryland has become the 17th state to (finally) decriminalize possession of marijuana, one could say that the legislature and governor should be patted on the back for doing the right thing.

  • Closing the loopholes will help clear the regulatory waters

    After a decade of uncertainty over Clean Water Act jurisdiction following Supreme Court challenges in 2001 and 2006, the Environmental Protection Agency and Army Corps of Engineers announced a forthcoming administrative rule to close enforcement loopholes, restoring protections to 20 million acres of wetlands, more than half the nation’s streams, and drinking water for 117 million Americans.

  • The first step Remember where your freedom comes from before criticizing

    The deal at Fort Hood could have been avoided if it was caught in time.
    When you think a GI is not acting right, have him or her checked out before you put them back on duty and give them a weapon. Post-traumatic stress disorder is a serious and dangerous problem if it is not taken care of right away.

  • Midterm elections give chance to return to American values

    A movement has been started by veterans of our armed forces to get out the vote in 2014. That includes Coast Guard and Merchant Marine personnel for those not familiar with the history of both and their sacrifice. This is no small special interest  group, but many millions of Americans who can have an enormous impact on the  outcome of the November election if they all respond.
