WASHINGTON, D.C. -- More than 4 in 10 Americans (43%) admit to feeling at least "a little" prejudice toward Muslims -- more than twice the number who say the same about Christians (18%), Jews (15%) and Buddhists (14%). The findings are based on a new Gallup Center for Muslim Studies report, "Religious Perceptions in America: With an In-Depth Analysis of U.S. Attitudes Toward Muslims and Islam,"...
Glenn beck offers up a new video about Obama 's connection to the Muslim Brotherhood which Beck and other Islamophobes say is a violent Jihadists organization.
Note the use of the word "tentacles" refering to Muslim conspiracy but historically the word "tentacles" was used to refer to the bogus Jewish Conspiracy and included pictures of an octobus holding the globe.

Eric Holder Covers Up for Radical Islamists by: Ryan Mauro at Radical Islam .org, June 26, 2012
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is in the spotlight after the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to hold him in contempt because he is refusing to provide documents related to the Fast and the Furious scandal. But there's another scandal you should know about.
For over one year, he (AG Holder) has refused to hand over documents about the Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), vice chairman of the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, confronted Holder about the matter on Thursday, June 21. Rep. Gohmert wants Congress to have access to documents from the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history. Five Foundation officials were found guilty of funding Hamas and evidence introduced by the federal government shows it was set up by the Muslim Brotherhood's secret "Palestine Committee" in the U.S.

For more insanity here's an article at blaze from Glenn Beck TV channel WANT TO KNOW JUST HOW CLOSE THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IS TO THE OBAMA ADMIN? by Tiffany Gabbay at Theblaze.com , April 26, 2012
On Wednesday evening, GBTV unveiled a powerful documentary, “Rumors of War III,” exposing how radical Islamists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, are infiltrating American government at its highest levels. ...video clip from the program outlining some of the key playersinvolved. Video at gbtv.com
As one person noted in the comments section of the GB website if this timely information is so important why do people have to pay to join the site to see the full video. Of course that's because Beck and his gang of bigoted Know Nothing pseudo-scholars' main motivation is not truth but rather dollars.
Radical Islam - Emotions High at Fifth Hearing
Published on 20 Jun 2012 by 0MadeInEngland1
June 20, 2012 - WASHINGTON - In a packed room on Capitol Hill Wednesday, sparks flew as the House Homeland Security Committee held its fifth hearing on radical Islam.
Members of the committee tried to address the problem without appearing anti-Muslim.
From the beginning, critics have compared Republican chairman Rep. Peter King to former Sen. Joseph McCarthy, who sought to rout out communists within the United States during the late 1940s and 1950s.
Citing poll numbers that show 63 percent of Americans approve of the hearings, King convened this one to gauge Muslim reaction.

Insane Obama 57 State Muslim Conspiracy by Texas Rep.
If Congress thinks it is appropriate to have hearings on the supposedly radicalization of Muslim Americans then why not have hearings on the radicalization that may or may not be taking place within other religious groups including Christians -IE Reconstructionism and Dominionism the Seven Mountains Prophecy, Battle Cry! and other radical Christian Evangelical movements. .
Of course such a suggestion is seen as anti-Christian by many Christian Americans .
But consider the killing of abortion providers and burning down and blowing up abortion clinics or beating up and killing Gay Americans aren't these also serious issues which involve various religious organizations including Christians .
Congressman Calls for Radicalized Christian Hearings

A Family Affair: Clintons Combat 'Islamophobia' by Diana West at radicalislam.org,June 21, 2012
Almost exactly three years ago, President Obama addressed "Muslims around the world" from Egypt's al-Azhar U in Cairo. He said he "consider[ed] it part of [his] responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."
As Geert Wilders writes in his must-read book Marked for Death: "I remember thinking, But what if these so-called `negative stereotypes of Islam' are the truth?-- will you denouce people for telling the truth? And if violent Islam is really just a `negative stereotype,' then why have I had to live like a virtual prisoner for more than four years [now more than seven years] due to threats from Muslims?"
Among America's elites, such questions don't even break the surface stillness.This is due to the de facto rule in the US of Islamic laws against "slander" which have been embraced, duck-to-water-style, by these same elites. In accordance with sharia, "Islamophobia" has become the target of their ire, much as "anti-anti-Communism" was more than half a century ago.
Take the Clintons, which have make the fight against Islamophobia a family affair
Infamously, SecState Hillary Clinton has teamed up with the OIC -- the Islamic body dedicated to imposing Islamic law on the world even as it awaits the "liberation" of Jerusalem so it can move its HQ there from Jeddah -- to "shame" Americans into silence on Islam: Silence on its supremacism, its crimes, its repressions, its totalitarianism, its collectivism, and, of course, silence on jihad. Heavens, just a few facts about these subjects would certainly inflame the very "Islamophobia" Hillary and the OIC have committed themselves (and this country) to fight. And never mind that pesky First Amendment. The Islamic law against "slander" -- which includes anything negative about Islam (even the truth) -- trumps all.
Just to underscore the Islamic conception of "slander," here is a brief excerpt from an extensive essay on the topic at Gates of Vienna by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, who quotes Reliance of the Traveler, a highly authoritative Sunni law book.
"Do you know what slander is?” … “It is to mention of your brother that which he would dislike."
"The Muslim is the brother of the Muslim. He does not betray him, lie to him, or hang back from coming to his aid. All of the Muslim is inviolable to his fellow Muslim: his reputation, his property, his blood."
Therefore, if a non-Muslim says something about Islam that is true, but which Muslims do not want infidels to know, he is still guilty of slander under Islam. This is far different from a Western understanding of slander.
Every rule must have its exceptions, and slander under Islam is no different. There are six reasons for permitting slander, but I will list only one of them, “Permissible Slander,” r2.16:
Again, from Reliance of the Traveler:
"Slander, though unlawful, is sometimes permissible for a lawful purpose, …the legitimating factor being that there is some aim countenanced by sacred law that is unattainable by other means."
Elisabeth writes: So if a Muslim cannot advance sacred law except by deceiving someone, he is allowed to deceive that person.
From what I have read the notion of lying being permitted is only under certain conditions such as to save someone's life including one's own. For instance if someone is made to take an oath of loyalty to a government in order to remain in the country or to keep one's livelihood even if it means going against the tenets of one's religion it may be acceptable.
Or if a Shia Muslim knows that the authorities are arresting all Shia Muslims it becomes a matter of self-preservation to lie even about one's religion.
The individual may decide to brazenly admit to what their religion is and thereby become a Martyr but does the individual have the right to put all of their own family and community in danger. Sometimes it is better to fight another day.
A religious community fearing oppression and possible elimination may decide to for the time being lie about their religious beliefs not just to protect one self or one's community but further to keep the community safe in order to continue with one's religious beliefs. Such notions of lying have been sanctioned at various times of oppression in various religions including Christians and Jews to ensure the community and the religion are not completely wiped out.
Its like the ethical conundrum of knowing lying is immoral but when a run away slave or someone who is being unjustly persecuted to whom you have allowed to take shelter in one's home when the authorities come knocking and ask if you have seen such and such a person or are protecting them then the higher law of defending a life trumps lying . To any sane rational being there is always going to be exceptions to any moral law or that the moral law may also trump the secular law or the law of the state or those in authority even those who are part of a religious authority.
also see Daniel Pipes who gives a veneer of scholarly objectiveness to the Hate Mongering about the majority of Muslims around the globe and especially in his view the more dangerous "stealth jihadists" operating in the the USA and other nations in the West.
What seems quite incredible if not unbelievable is the number of journalists and politicians and scholars these so-called "Stealth Jihadists" are able to fool. So how is it that only Daniel Pipes or David Horowitz and a few others are able to ferret out these wily "Jihadists". Like the McCarthyites the Islamophobes have some sort of mysterious or magical powers to uncloak these evil individuals when on one else is able to.
Which Muslims in the West support Islamism, which do not? Stealth Islamist: Khaled Abou El Fadl, by Daniel Pipes Middle East Quarterly 2004
Those who have Al-Qaeda connections or deal in terrorism are relatively easy to classify, once they are found out. The state has ways to investigate and punish illegal activities. In September 2003, for example, Taysir Alony, a star reporter for the Al-Jazeera television network, was arrested in Spain on charges of belonging to Al-Qaeda. In the United States, Abdurahman Alamoudi, "a well-heeled advocate who had represented American Muslims in White House meetings," was arrested on terrorism-related charges.
But what about individuals who apparently break no laws but promote an Islamist agenda in a legal fashion, sometimes from within the heart of the establishment? One case is that of the renowned Swiss-French intellectual Tariq Ramadan, hailed by some as a moderate—a man who has stayed within the law but is believed by some to have Al-Qaeda connections. Another is Bashir Nafi, who teaches at the University of London but in February 2003 was indicted at a U.S. District Court in Florida as someone who "supported numerous violent terrorist activities associated with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad."
Then there is the case of Khaled Medhat Abou El Fadl. Born in 1963, he is a professor of law at the University of California in Los Angeles, visiting professor of law at Yale Law School, President George W. Bush's appointee to the Commission on International Religious Freedom, a consultant to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, an expert state witness in major court cases, an advisor to major law firms, and a writer for prestigious publications. As this listing of his achievements suggests, Abou El Fadl has a reputation as a "Muslim moderate."
Here are a few of his exuberant press clippings: The Boston Globe:
Abou El Fadl is "a moderate voice urging Muslims in the United States and elsewhere to speak out against radical elements of Islam."
The Jerusalem Post: one of the few Muslims who "take a stand despite the [personal] risks" in favor of a "pluralistic, tolerant and non-violent Islam."
Los Angeles Daily News: "a leading critic of Islamic radicalism."
Los Angeles Times: a "longtime champion of human rights."
National Review: "one of the most formidable weapons in the battle against Islamic fundamentalism."
The New Republic: a heroic moderate who announces, "There may need to be sacrificial lambs. I'm going to play this role and speak my conscience."
To judge from Abou El Fadl's press, he is a path-breaking and fearless antidote to extremism. But there is a body of other evidence suggesting that he is something other than the "moderate voice" his admirers believe or hope him to be.
Abou El Fadl's signature issue, the one that has most established his reputation as a moderate, involves his outspoken opposition to the Saudi regime. But one can be an Islamist, and even a radical one, and also take a stand against Wahhabism. Ayatollah Khomeini, and indeed the entire school of Shi'ite radicalism, provides a dramatic example of this pattern. After a confrontation with Saudi security forces during the pilgrimage to Mecca in 1987, which left hundreds of Iranians dead, Khomeini raged against "these vile and ungodly Wahhabis, [who] are like daggers which have always pierced the heart of the Muslims from the back."
