GROUND ZERO MOSQUE IMAM ON OBAMA PAYROLL - The controversy over the mega mosque at Ground Zero has not stopped the Obama Administration from putting the imam involved on its payroll. The Obama Administration thinks Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is the right man to represent the United States in a State Department funded trip to Muslim nations.

When questioned, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley praised the Imam, saying that he was "a distinguished Muslim cleric," and then described the program: "we send people from Muslim communities here in this country around the world to help people overseas to understand our society and the role of religion within our society." WHAT? How does a Muslim who openly says he believes in the implementation of Sharia law represent the United States? And why are there no Christians going on these trips to explain "religion within our society."

This is the same type of dimmhification at the federal level as is seen in New York City. Our elected officials and the elites of our nation have decided they can live peaceably with Islam if they accept aspects of it. It is called appeasement. Winston Churchill summed it up well: "An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last."

STATE DEPARTMENT PAYS OTHER IMAMS - Rev. Franklin Graham, whose son is serving in Iraq, was not allowed to pray at the Pentagon because his presence would "offend" Muslims. But paying imams who support Hamas and Hezbollah to travel to the Middle East to represent the United States of America is not offensive in the minds of Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton. There are many more imams on the payroll of the State Department than just Feisal Rauf, but the State Department refuses to say who they are or how much they get paid. The Religious Freedom Coalition has filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the State Department demanding the information.

HOUSE RETURNS TO SPEND - Speaker Nancy Pelosi recalled the House to Capitol Hill during the August recess to pass an "emergency" $26 billion spending bill. Much of the money, $12 billion of which was taken from food stamp programs, goes to union teachers. After the funds run out the bill requires the States to continue to spend on teachers at the same rate for five years without further funding. The immediate effect of the bill is to create $100 million in additional union dues that can be used in the elections against Republicans. The "emergency" was a payoff to the teachers unions which support only radical left candidates.

CONGRESSMAN BLOCKS AID TO LEBANESE ARMY - The weapons and ammunition used by Lebanese army snipers to kill two Israeli officers were supplied by the United States. It is believed that the snipers were trained here, although neither the Lebanese Army nor our government will comment. Congressman Howard Berman, who heads the Foreign Affairs Committee, blocked funds to the Lebanese Army unless there was a promise not to use them against Israel. Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr, said in response that he would reject any American military assistance if it came with conditions that weapons not be used against Israel. Read more

CANTOR SAYS STATE AG FAILED TO DEFEND TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE - Minority Whip Eric Cantor accused the State Attorneys General in Massachusetts and California of failing to defend provisions passed by voters to defend traditional marriage. Cantor said about the situation, "Regrettably, in both of these cases, the Attorneys General responsible for defending the laws either presented the weakest possible defense or refused to take on the challenge at all." He makes the point that same-sex advocates are passing over the will of the people and that elected officials are failing those voters. Cantor's statement

MORE ON THE MEGA MOSQUE - The Religious Freedom Coalition has begun operating a site dedicated to informing the public about the insult of building a 15 story mega-mosque that would cast its shadow daily on Ground Zero, the location of the horrific 9-11 jihad attack against America. The site is located at This new site has updated news and videos about the proposed mosque, plus a poll and a petition to stop construction.

STUDENTS NOT ALLOWED TO SING ANTHEM - A group of high school students attending a conservative leadership conference in Washington, D.C. were ordered to stop singing the National Anthem during a visit to the Lincoln Memorial. The students were stopped about 30 seconds into the National Anthem and told it was an "unauthorized demonstration."

CUT THE THROATS OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS - The Al-Quds Mosque in Hamburg, Germany was the main hangout of 9-11 mastermind Mohamed Atta, and Imam Muhammad al-Fazazi preached hatred and murder there saying, "Christians and Jews should have their throats cut." Even the train bombings in Spain in 2004 were planned in this "house of worship." After 9-11 the name of the mosque was changed but it was still a center for terror. In the name of free speech the Germans allowed it to remain open until this week. What changed the minds of German authorities? Eleven men with German passports, and all with ties to this mosque, headed to a terror training camp this past March. The mosque will probably not remain shut. Even with its Nazi past, democratic Germany will continue to allow anti-Semitic hatred to be preached in German mosques, including this one. Josef Joffe of Die Zeit wrote an excellent report on the mosque in WSJ-online

THE FASCISTS OF THE 21st CENTURY - There are misguided American liberals who are just astonished that European nations would consider banning the burqa from being worn in public by women. These are the same liberals who believe that employers may ban Christians and Jews from wearing religious jewelry. In the United States, liberals and the Islamic fascists are allies against a common enemy, Judeo-Christianity. European liberals, even communists, are willing to take a stand against Islamic persecution of women because they believe they have already defeated the church in Europe and want no return of religion in the public square. An article in Europe News gives vast insight into the battle to ban the burka in Europe
