Taking the Jihad Temperature - A Gathering Storm Special Series- INTIMIDATION Part 2
If you throw a frog into boiling water, he will jump out. If you put it in cold water and slowly turn up the heat, he will not notice the rise in temperature and will eventually boil.
The Islamists are boiling our frog and though this blog and hundreds like it record almost daily the rise in the Jihad temperature, unless we see how far and fast the temperature has risen, we will not know how far along our boiling has progressed.
So, the Gathering Storm will be posting only once a week but these weekly posts will take the Jihadist temperature by looking back at news and events over the last two years. Over the next several weeks in the areas of intimidation, infiltration, disinformation and thoseappeasers and apologists who either knowingly or unknowingly advance the Jihad agenda, the Gathering Storm will show how far our frog has been boiled.
By seeing the boiling water around us, we can see how far the boiling has progressed.
Here’s this week’s look back AGAIN at the rising Jihad temperature of INTIMIDATION !! And remember – this is just a sampling of Jihadist Intimidation. More to follow.
Storm Track Intimidation: CAIR Continues Its Litigation Jihad
The group that calls itself a ‘civil rights’ organization has proven time and time again to be the litigation arm of the Islamists waging the many jihads on the non-Muslim world.
CAIR’s latest attempt at protecting our civil rights are charges against a California middle school teacher, Randy Ingram, who had the courage to state to his sixth grade class the obvious - that Iran has sworn to destroy the state of Israel.
Given Iranian president Ahmadinejad's constant threatening of
And who’s the lead jihadist in this particular drama?
Taking the lead here is Kamal Abu-Shamsieh, the director of Islamic
Cultural Centerof . What the Bee does not inform its readers is that Shamsieh is a professional Islamist. Fresno
Kamal Abu-Shamsieh is a former Palestinian journalist and a documentary film maker. He is currently the national community relations director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) based in
. He provides the Muslim & ethnic media outlets with weekly updates and news about the Muslim community. Mr. Shamsieh is both a radical Muslim and an Israel hater who in a piece authored for the far-left pro-Fresno Alliance newsletter, accused the Jewish state of war crimes, "represented a new phase of Israel's war crimes," while decrying the alleged, "apartheid policies of Israel." Los Angeles
Typical of the Islamist mindset, Shamsieh believes in limiting the line of inquiry when it strays to the type of topic that naturally might inconvenient questions.
"I don't believe schools are a place to debate political views on international affairs or any other affairs that are not related to teaching our children."
Oh really? Especially if the political debate shows Islam in a bad light. Right Mr. Shamsieh? And if I remember correct, current affairs IS a valid topic to teach children in school. But today’s schools are more interested in teaching multicultural values and political correctness than world history and current events.
Keep ‘em young and dumb is the plan and lead them down the road to being good little dhimmis swallowing the propaganda of the Islamists so visible today in our public school system.
As is usually the case in such matters, the Saudi Wahhabist funded Council on American Islamic Relations is now also pushing this hoax via its newsletter. These attempts are happening all over the
We must identify and expose these attempts at litigation and cultural jihad when we find them. For Islamists jihad is the way – Shariah law is the weapon of choice in subduing the non-Muslims and moderate Muslim societies.
Storm Track Intimidation: Islamist Useful Idiots Kill Free Speech at
Just when you think the Motoon controversy had run its course, the Islamist appeasers and complainers strike again. This time, at two students at
The controversy over the publication of one of the now infamous Jyllands Posten Mohammed cartoons in a
I wonder if the interrogates wore Islamo-fascist symbols on their uniforms? Or perhaps they were brown?
Police confirmed to Index that the students were questioned last Friday, and a file has been sent to the Crown Prosecution Service, which will decide whether to press charges against the students in the coming weeks. The magazine, circulated for free among Clare students, contained several articles ridiculing religious belief, and the front-page headlines ‘Katie Lin-O-Scopes more reliable than Bible’ (a reference to the magazine’s spoof horoscope column) and ‘Ayatollah rethinks stance on “misunderstood” Rushdie’.
The editorial stated ‘I hate Islam’. The Mohammed cartoon appeared on the back page, juxtaposed with a picture of Clare’s student president with the caption ‘One is a prophet of God, a great leader and an example to us all. The other is a violent paedophile.’
This is not the first time a student publication has courted controversy by publishing the cartoons. In February 2006, four students were suspended from
The useful idiots of the Islamist are not just looney – but dangerous.
What’s ever happened to free speech in this country? Where’s the ACLU? Oh, how silly of me to ask. They’ll defend anyone degrading the Judeo-Christian religion but Islam is off limits.
Storm Track Intimidation: Litigation Jihad -
Muslim Student Sues School
It seems a Muslim student is suing the
The ACLU is taking up the case because, get this, it proves the insensitivity of the school district.
“The position I was put in was very, very uncomfortable,” said Mr. Shareef, who graduated from West Side High with a 4.0 grade-point average and is a student at
Since Shareef doesn’t like it, no one should be allowed to do it. The tyranny of the minority – the objective of the politically correct - is at it again. The ACLU seeing this as an opportunity to attack religion once again is licking its chops over the prospect.
And of course the ACLU is all over the case saying that under the state’s Constitution, no person can be “compelled to attend any place of worship contrary to his faith and judgment”, even though the school district’s lawyer says that state law “allows some use of religious facilities by public school districts”.
And what’s the reaction from the Muslim and non-Muslim community?
Louay Safi, the executive director of the Islamic Society of North America, which has 400 affiliated mosques, said “this is the first time I have heard of a student not wanting to just visit a church on that grounds.”
The imam of the Islamic
Cultural Centerin , where Mr. Shareef worships, could not be reached for comment about its stance. Mr. Shareef said, “I can’t speak for all Muslims; I know some that don’t mind and some that do.” Newark
The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a nonprofit educational association, said the use of churches for graduation ceremonies was a growing phenomenon, but he was unaware of any other lawsuits over the issue.
So why the use of churches for graduation ceremonies of public schools in the first place? Could it be a devious plot of the right wing Christian conservatives who want to takeover the public schools and install their brand of radical Christian fundamentalism? Or perhaps it’s a plot to expose impressionable Muslim youngsters to a crusading religion in hopes of turning them way from Mohammed’s one true light?
Nope. None of the above. It’s simple economics.
The school district plans to fight the lawsuit, arguing it didn't have a choice, that there were no large secular spaces available to handle the roughly 250 graduating seniors at West Side High School, said Perry Lattiboudere, the school district's general counsel.
This is just another attempt that has been growing quickly over the last several years of a cultural jihad using litigation jihad to assert Muslim values on a community.
Why now? Why within the last several years Muslims here and abroad are offended by the culture they live in and instead of finding ways to live peacefully side by side with other cultures, they have find ways to dominate it? Why aren’t Buddhists, Hindu and Jewish students offended by attending graduation ceremony in a church?
Even more important, who was counseling this teenage Muslim to come up with his idea? His family? His mosque? A radical cleric? This has nothing to so with the issue at hand. This is but another attempt at forcing the non-Muslim culture into dhimmitude and advancing Islamic mores and laws in order to Ilsamitize a society.
Storm Track Intimidation: Attempts at Imposing Shariah Law Again - in
Taking a leaf out of the Minneapolis Muslim cab drivers book, some Muslim cashiers at Target refuse to handle pork, setting off another debate over the place of religion in society.
Are they trying to outdo Dearbornistan?
Beryl Dsouza was late and in no mood for delays when she stopped at a Target store after work two weeks ago for milk, bread and bacon. So Dsouza was taken aback when the cashier -- who had on the traditional headscarf, or hijab, worn by many Muslim women -- refused to swipe the bacon through the checkout scanner. "She made me scan the bacon. Then she opened the bag and made me put it in the bag," said Dsouza, 53, of
This is yet another attempt by Islamist Muslims to make our society live by their rules.
In the latest example of religious beliefs creating tension in the workplace, some Muslims in the Twin Cities are adhering to a strict interpretation of the Qur'an that prohibits the handling of pork products. Instead of swiping the items themselves, they are asking non-Muslim employees or shoppers to do it for them.
Hey little dhimmi. Bow to the superiority of Islam! Better yet, if you can’t do the kob you were hired for –quit!
Dr. Shah Khan, a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Minnesota in Fridley, said the Somali Muslim community is divided between those who believe it is wrong only to eat pork and more orthodox Muslims who believe the prohibition extends to selling, touching or handling the meat. He urged people to remember the extraordinary adjustments many Somalis have made in coming to the Twin Cities. “Many of these people are refugees. They may have been tortured. And they came here having never held a book in English,” he said. “They’re already adapting to our society. We need to adapt to them, too.”
Bull Hockey, Dr. Khan! The primitive culture adapts to the superior own – not visa versa. Besides, have you seen any Hindu cashiers refusing to handle beef? This is another attempt at forcing the dominate culture to submit to a minority one.
Target released this statement in response: “Providing guests with consistently fast checkouts is a key, fundamental part of our business and our guest service commitment. As always, we continue to explore reasonable solutions that consider the concerns of team members while ensuring that we maintain our ability to provide the highest level of guest service.”
I have a better suggestion. If you can’t do the job then the employer should fired them. But then, this really isn't about the pork. Or liquor. Or seeing eye dogs. Or birth control prescriptions.
Storm Track Intimidation: Muslim Removed from Human Relations Commission Protested
Muslims are offended – Again! This time in
Nearly three dozen Muslims held a protest Friday in front of City Hall, spurred in part by the removal of a Muslim man from the
Human Relations Commission. The City Council in October removed Marwan Ahmad from the commission. Sabahudin Ceman, imam of the Islamic Center of North Phoenix, was named as Ahmad's replacement. Phoenix
Mayor Phil Gordon was behind the decision to remove Ahmad, saying that he delivers a message of intolerance against
and the Jewish community when the commission's mission is to promote respect and understanding among all groups. Israel
Good. Some anti-dhimmi behavior from a major city mayor and was right to remove Ahmad from the commission. Ahmad publishes the Multicultural Yellow Pages, which excludes references to the Valley's Jewish cultural institutions and replaces
Gordon, who regularly meets with members of the Muslim community, said that "serving on the Human Relations Commission is a privilege, not a right." Hani Rahal, a member of a Muslim coalition, said, "People should not be removed from their positions because of their political views."
Excuse me! If you are on a commission to improve human relations, there is not room for bigoted political opinion.
Storm Track Intimidation: Journalists on Trial for Insulting Muslims
Two Azerbaijani journalists accused of inciting religious hatred with an article that criticized Islam went on trial Monday, both accusing authorities of waging a politically motivated prosecution.
The case against reporter Rafiq Tagi and editor Samir Huseinov has touched a nerve in
One downside to winning the Cold War was the freedom of radical Muslims to pursue the Islamist agenda in their countries. Azerbaijani is a prime example and shows that when Islamists take control of a country, it quickly devolves into a 13th century society.
Tagi's November article in the small newspaper Senet, edited by Huseinov, asserted that Islam has suffocated people, pulled them away from freedom and hindered humanity's development, and said the Prophet Muhammad created problems for Eastern countries.
That’s what you get for telling the truth in a Muslim country where freedom of speech is not tolerated and radical Islam is in control.
The article sparked angry protests - including calls for Tagi's death - in a village near
whose conservative Muslim community has clashed with the authoritarian government. The case has also deepened concerns about freedom of speech in the oil-rich country. Tagi, who was brought into the court in handcuffs, said he committed no crime. Baku
"My article - this was purely artistic, a literary discussion and for words one must only answer with words. It is illegal to imprison someone for their convictions," he told the court. Huseinov told the court his constitutional rights had been violated and that authorities were trying to portray him as not being Muslim.
Right. If you’re a Muslim and criticize Muslims or Islam you are not really a Muslim and can be ignored, or worse yet, persecuted. This circular logic was used recently as a response to the secular Muslim conference in
The trial was expected to be closely watched in the West, which is interested in
Of course human rights can be of no interest in the West unless the international human rights organizations can pin violations on only Western nations.
Storm Track Intimidation: Muslims Declare Muslims Non-Muslims
More of the tolerance of Islam – NOT!! Hat tip to Sugiero.
Pakistani police bulldozers have demolished the perimeter wall of a cemetery belonging to the “blasphemous” Armadiya community, despite the fact that it had been built according to laws regulating privately bought property. Local Ahmadis believe the operation was a result of a campaign started by extremist clerics and Religious organizations that had said the fencing of the graveyard was an attempt to create a mini city of
Ahmadiya Communityin . Lahore
Oh, we can’t have that. It would soil the purity of the Muslim community.
According to intergralist Muslims, the Ahmadiya sect is heretical, in so far as it declares itself to be Muslim but does not recognise Mohammed as the last prophet; as a result the community is subjected to persecution, not only in
It seems that in certain parts of the Muslim world, they can’t get the god straight.
On 15 April, a group of Mullahs signed a “contract” with the local population stating that they would not allow a “mini city of
This is another example of the Islamist insurgency of a moderate Muslim community to wage their jihad.
Raja Ghalab Ahmad, secretary general,
Ahamdiyya Community told AsiaNews: “It is a common practice that people mark boundary walls to protect their open. No-one notified us of the demolition, because we are Ahmadis. It is clear to me that the government has caved in to fundamentalist pressure”. Normally, he explains, “the local government provides lands for cemeteries. But since 1974 when Ahmadis were declared non Muslims; this privilege has been denied our community, throughout the entire country. Lahore
Declared a non-Muslim? Declared by whom? And why should the Pakistani government support such a declaration? This is more proof that despite Musharraf’s insistence and guarantees to President Bush that he is resisting the radical elements in his country, the Islamist still seem to have the upper hand in
Storm Track Intimidation: From Toons to Tostitos – The Frito-Lay Jihad!
First the Motoon blasphemy – now the sacrilegious corn chips. It seems that Muslims are getting all in a tizzy over the ingredients in the popular Frito-Lay Mexican chip. Hat tip to JammieWearingFool.
From around the world, Muslims have been calling up Frito-Lay, inquiring about their products after learning of possible pork enzymes in their cheese seasonings. Muslim students and professionals, in response, started email campaigns, wrote on their blogs, and some even created groups on the popular college-networking website, Facebook.
One group on Facebook, “Fight Against Pork in Frito-Lay Products,” has already accumulated over 1,810 students globally. Its moderator urged its members to “call whether [they] are for or against the change” and for them to inform Frito-Lay of their concerns.
Watch it Frito-Lay! You’re chips are in threat of crumbling.
The 'chip snit' has generated some deep thinking about being Muslim.
Some Muslims, however, have opted out of the “contact Frito-Lay” bandwagon and have instead questioned their fellow Muslims’ concerns and actions. On one blog, one Muslim woman wrote on April 3, 2007, “I wonder how many of those people who called Doritos called their local congressman about their opinion of the war? Or to have a fair trial for Dr. Sami Al-Arian? How many of these thought to affect change on more important matters? I mean, if the food is not permissible to eat, I would like to know. But the reaction and the larger context really irks me.”
One Muslim man responded back to her on that same blog, “The reason people are worked up…number of us have been eating Frito-lay products since we were little kids.”
So much for the politics. Now the science.
I spoke to Frito-Lay spokeswoman Aurora Gonzalez to get the record straight. She informed me that Frito-Lay has been aware of this discussion and are “respectful” of those who do not consume pork enzymes.
She told me, “Most cheeses are made using enzymes as part of the process to develop unique flavors, and depending on the flavor, enzyme sources may include vegetable, microbial and/or animal. Pork enzymes may be used in the milk that makes the real cheese for some of our cheese seasonings.” “However,” she said, “by the time the cheese seasoning arrives at Frito-Lay, the animal enzymes have been physically changed by heat to be inactive long before being added to our snacks.”
But you can bet that some Muslims will still consider such foods Haram (forbidden). So let’s see, what should Frito-Lay do. I know! Let’s do the accommodation dance.
Could there be a new market for Muslims in the near future? Will Frito-Lay’s manufacturers and importers consider placing a halal logo on its snack foods that do not contain pork enzymes for its Muslim consumers? If its products contain animal substances, will Frito-Lay consider becoming halal certified by the Department of Islamic Development
And what about the poor kosher Jews. Who cares about them, right? They’ll just have to settle for Morgan David and wine Manoschevitz foods.
Muslim-American Seton Hall University student, Ibrahim Khaddash, in New Jersey, told me he feels “paranoid” ever since he heard about Frito-Lay’s pork-enzyme-containing products and said, “Muslims need to somehow let these big organizations know that if they want our business then they must obey our dietary laws.”
Catch that word, Frito-Lay? ‘OBEY’? Learn it. Along with this one. Dhimmitude.
Storm Track Intimidation: Dutch Politico Accused of Not Playing Nice with Muslims
Geert Wilders the head of the "Dutch Party for Freedom," claims he was "intimidated" by
’ Counter Terrorism Coordinator Tjibbe Joustra who "recommended" that he tone down his criticism of Islam. Wilders' recent remarks that Muslims should "tear out half of the Koran, if they wanted to live in Netherlands " sparked an uproar in the Muslim world. According to Wilders, Tjibbe asked "can't this be done differently?" Holland
But the Islamists in
Wilders' is under constant police protection as a result of numerous death threats issued against him by Islamists ["the Dutch MP and controversial critic of Islam, has two policemen by his side even when in his high-security parliamentary office in case someone tries to decapitate him. Each day, he does not know where he is going to sleep that night, as he is taken from safe house to safe house in a convoy of armored cars.
All this has got an Iranian Ayatollah’s burka in a bunch.
Responding to the MP's statements, Iranian Ayatollah Noori Hamedi has called for a boycott of Dutch products and demanded that the country's ambassador be recalled from

The controversy has exposed fissures within the Dutch government, with Parliament demanding an explanation from Justice Minister Hirsh Ballin, saying that it is unacceptable to deny Wilders his freedom of speech.
Hmmm…free speech. What a unique idea. At least some dhimmis have grown a spine in
Storm Track Intimidation: Muslims Offended Again – This Time in
It never ceases to amazes me how Muslims, no matter where they are located, find something to be offended by and why we should care. On the negative side they are a constant source of irritation. On the positive side they are a constant source of morbid entertainment.
It seems the Muslim Judicial Council of South Africa is all a tizzy over the annual Matric Ball – the SA version of our Prom.
Matric balls, whether hosted during the month of Ramadan or not, are not endorsed by Islam, says the Muslim Judicial Council (MJC).
The statement comes after weekend reports that Muslim pupils at the South African College Schools (SACS) were up in arms over their school's decision to host the function in Islam's holiest month.
The school is now revisiting its decision to host its matric farewell on September 15 - two days into Ramadaan, and a new date will be set, according to reports.
But that’s not enough for the stifled Muslims.
Appleby said the issue was not whether the matric ball was hosted during the month of Ramadaan, but that matric balls were not endorsed within the Islamic faith…..He said that, from a religious perspective, matric balls were not endorsed by the clergy for numerous reasons.
These included a non-Islamic dress code, possible exposure to alcohol, intermingling of male and female students, intimate dancing, the atmosphere and the dangers associated with the after-party. He said that matric balls were "frowned upon" within Islam.
"Its entire format or its unfolding, the whole theme of extravagance and the utilising of funds for one evening, generally goes against Islamic teachings, or is not promoted or encouraged."
Oh God forbid that the youngsters who worked so hard to graduate should have little fun celebrating their achievement.
It's more about the complexities of living in society or relating to what is considered sacred. It's not about the month, it's about applying the laws to their personal lives. People need to remember that, when they look at the laws of Islam, they need to be respected."
Weekend reports said that out of 159 SACS matriculants more than 25 Muslim pupils would have to choose between the farewell and their faith.
But after an intervention from the
This change will mean finding an alternative venue for the matric ball as the school hall is booked a year in advance for a range of activities.
It’s the same old thing. Accommodate the Muslims and inconvenience the rest of us. But the god of multiculturalism must once again be appeased.
