There Is No Right Or Wrong, Just The Greed Of “Leadership”!

Seen in the picture below, is terrorism’s new face. It is described by one of my favorite reporters,  Vicky Nanjappa, in his article Lashkar, ISIS and the Chechen Terrorists and deserves careful scrutiny. Vicky describes the new face of a potential World Of United Terrorism, partially thanks to Obama’s support of terrorism by his poorly timed withdrawal  creating chaos.  And this chaos resulting in the destruction of all America’s solider’s have fought to achieve over 13 years of fighting,  an opportunity for freedom in the Middle East.  George Bush surely read Natan Sharanky’s book The Case For Democracy: The Power Of Freedom to Overcome Tyranny And Terror; Obama either doesn’t read much or has another agenda.

WHO IS RIGHT?  Who is Right and who is Wrong in this world wide battle between Freedom and the Caliphate of Islam?  In my opinion, we all know the answer, if we look inward.  It is those who look outward, with visions of power and greed that know only one word, War!  Most great leaders, who had faith in God, said look within to find God and his truth.  If you do so, you will recognize that we are all human and as such imperfect.  You will recognize that the word of any “prophet”  could only be the best impression an imperfect person could share.  You will recognized that you don’t want to kill your neighbor; you want to live in peace. You will recognize that there is enough bounty to enrich the lives of every person on Earth and care for the planet, if the goal was to do so. You will recognize that all the systems of religion and government are there for the powerful, cruel, and greedy whose “genius” is to lead others to slaughter their neighbors so the leaders might achieve their visions.  The ONLY truth is simple, “love thy neighbor.”   If instead of accumulating money, we were to accumulate “gold stars” for each person we helped in our life’s journey as a businessman, doctor, lawyer, politician or ditch digger, it would be a better world!  What do we really need?  Do we need to own an Island and a Jet?   Is it not better to have happiness and reap the joy of the seeds we have sowed by creating the only value that has meaning, the enriched lives of others and the planet?

Why do Americans,  in a recent survey,  prefer Cockroaches to Congressmen in their homes?   It is because in our hearts we know the truth about leadership, all of it!

There is a simple answer to all our problems but we have killed our neighbors in its denial for thousands of years.  That answer is that the truth is within a heart that loves his neighbor as his self.   Words spoken by many religious leaders but denied in their “practice of religion itself!”

So,  who is right and who is wrong?   Should we have a Caliphate or Freedom? The answer is simple, there is No Answer from outside only from within.  If you follow ANY teaching,  Islamic, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Communist, Republican,  Democratic, Kingdom ….. You are looking outside for a leader who will draw boundaries in the sand and lead you to war.

If humanity and the Earth are to survive,  it is time to recognize that if God is all powerful he will speak to our hearts when we turn inward without the teachings and messages of “leaders”  who are always, in my opinion, false prophets.  There is one truth only, Love Thy Neighbor As Thy Self,  after all we are all children of God and by so doing, prove our love for God.

The world “Leadership”, as we know it  historically,  needs to be redefined. You see, if there are no boundaries we call MINE and not YOURS,  then there is no place to lead to and no need for leaders.   Leaders don’t lead us to success they lead us to protect our imagined wealth and another’s hoped for poverty. They do not lead us to greatness, they lead us to war, death and division.

When we learn to live united as God’s People, without leaders and shun them as much as we have shunned “false prophets” then we will possibly find truth. Then the  Caliphate, ISIS and the Chechen Terrorists  will be as meaningless as any other flag rallying for the death of its neighbor.  We need to erase all these imagined boundaries, recognize humanity and Earth, turn inward with love and share the resultant joy and prosperity.  It is a simple vision but a difficult task because leaders get in the way.

Most Muslims Are Good People – What Is Our Concern?

Muslim concerns from 2014-07-09 21:51:32

 

Most Muslims want to live in peace but about 25% according to world research are radicals who would stop at nothing to end America. Approximately 1,226,000,000 people follow Islam according to recent research.  That means about 300 Million Islamic Radicals want the end of Western Civilization!

This is not a concern to sweep under the rug!  Watch the  video linked above. from Ozzie Safa’s blog

CAIR – Sharia In America

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, (CAIR),  is a name you will hear on National Public Radio,  they are a sponsor.  CAIR  funds a “more accepting” viewpoint of Sharia in America; but do you want that for America, as an American?  Is this, as some fear,  another way for terrorists to chip away at America’s foundations and slowly destroy America?

CAIR claims to represent Islam in North America and to protect “Muslim civil rights” yet their is  proof that CAIR is supporting Islamic terrorists, and that CAIR was established in America by those who wish to harm our country while using our constitution for their protection.

A little history of CAIR:   Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBi) recorded evidence places CAIR founders Omar Ahmad and Nihad Awad at a Philadelphia meeting of the radical Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee.” According to the FBI, “all attendees in the meeting are Hamas members and sympathizers.” An Investigative Project on Terrorism report on the HLF trial reveals that FBI agent Lara Burns testified that CAIR’s Omar Ahmad was “a leader of the Palestinian committee”.

Quotes from Ahmad and Nihad at the Philadelphia Meeting:   Omar Ahmad  talking with with Shukri Abu Baker:

  • Baker: “I swear by Allah that war is deception,”…“We are fighting our enemy with a kind heart … Deceive, camouflage, pretend that you’re leaving while you’re walking that way. Deceive your enemy …”
  • Ahmad: “I agree with you. Like they say, politics is a completion of war”

It should be noted that in a 2003 deposition, Omar Ahmad stated that he “can’t recall attending this meeting”. Nihad Awad, also in a 2003 deposition, said he couldn’t remember if he attended the Philadelphia Meeting either, even though he was an active and vocal participant at the event. The FBI revealed that HLF paid the airline tickets and hotel bills for Omar Ahmad’s attendance of the Philadelphia meeting. The Holy Land Foundation also provided CAIR with a “donation” check for $5000 in October of 1994.

FIGHTING FOR SHARIA AGAINST AMERICAN LEGAL VALUES:  When 70% of Oklahoma’s citizens voted for a constitutional amendment to prevent what they saw as the destruction of the American Legal system,  CAIR filed suit!  The enacted Oklahoma amendment in part reads: “The courts shall not look to the legal precepts of other nations or cultures. Specifically, the courts shall not consider international law or sharia law.”

Muneer Awad, a Muslim who heads the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma, sued to block the law, saying it violated his First Amendment rights.

Muslim Civil Rights?   Is CAIR fighting for Muslim Civil Rights or is it an attempt to overthrow the system that has made America,  what it is and what we value?   I believe that Muslims have the right to worship in freedom as we all do in America today.  After all,  they came here for the freedom we offered. I would fight for their freedoms as I would fight for ours.  On the other hand,  what they came here for IS HERE.  What they ran from IS STILL THERE.  Why fight to change the system you came here to enjoy and try to make it more like the one you ran from?

When the Spanish come to America,  from Mexico,  Guatemala,  Ecuador, etc. I am at first glance, offended that they do not seek to learn English and seek to cling to newspapers, TV and Radio stations that broadcast in Spanish.   I know a little about history and it has been a pattern of  Italians, Jews and Germans who came here earlier.  It took the next generation to break “free”  of the  language barriers and the cultural fears.   On the other hand,  these “foreigners”  did not choose to remake the legal system of our country to suit their religious laws.  They came here and struggled with combining the best of what they believed with the best of what we had to offer so they could live here in peace and prosperity.   We all benefited.

I have no doubt that there is a cultural richness we would lose without the coming contributions from  those of Islamic faith who are making America their home.  Undoubtedly it will in some way be a contribution of their experience with the best of their cultural heritage and perhaps some of what Sharia has to offer.  American’s are open to richness,  cultural diversity and the blessings of a multicultural society.  American’s however resent having someone use the courts and legal systems to force their values on America.   The way to win American’s to your side is

to prove the value of what you have;  Americans will adopt it on their own.  Americans are sold on things that work, not beaten into submission by a dictatorial system.  Similarly,  going to court to defeat the will of the people of Oklahoma, because you have the money and the “mouth-pieces” will create the backlash it has and should.

Should we  judge CAIR by its founding fathers?   It is certainly a concern for most of us.  I would rather judge my Islamic neighbors by they contributions to America. I would rather see my countrymen adopting the richness that our new neighbors bring to America because we see its value. At this point in its history,  I believe that CAIR is hurting more American Islamic followers  than it is helping.  Can those of moderate Islamic faith contribute to and become part of America.  We shall see. I don’t think it will be because of CAIR when they succeed.

Who Is Ibrahim?

In my story,  TIMELESS SEARCH,  Ibrahim is a major character who is  of  Arabic descent.   Ibrahim is a brilliant mathematician and student of Islamic Law.  He is very tall, powerful,  ethical and influential.  He is also part of the team that will determine the future of all life in out universe.

Ibrahim faces a challenge which many of us in America have to deal with when relating to Muslims,  he has to deal with what he has learned from Islamic Law, Sharia,  vs what is backbone of our American law and society,  the Judeo-Christian Heritage.

For those of you who have written to me and asked why I created Ibrahim;  I believe this  story could not exist without him.  Just as the story of the evolution of our world today will not be told without reference to Islam, so my story could not have existed,  without Ibrahim and Islam.

Many years ago,  I had the opportunity to know two brothers who were students of Islam,  much like my character, Ibrahim.   They had both memorized the Quaran and would frequently review it between them to keep in memory.  I asked them questions about the roots of the Islamic system of ethics (how it might compare to our 10 commandments)  but I was disappointed with the lack of a clear answer.   I have yet to receive one but hope to in the future.  In the meantime,  Ibrahim is my closest answer as he struggles with the challenge it has caused in my mind.   As an example of the dilemma  that Ibrahim had to face here is one question that arises:

Consider the law “Thou Shalt Not Murder!”  

  • The 10 Commandments states:    Thou Shalt Not Murder
  • In the Quaran you may find:  “And do not kill anybody that Allah has prohibited except when you have a right to kill” (6:151)
Now I am not claiming any expertise in the Quaran so this is taken from Islamic sites that do claim to be authoritative.  The Judeo-Christian version also is careful not to say “thou shalt not kill”  but rather thou shalt not murder.  This is because to murder is premeditated and to kill may be defensive or accidental.   How we interpret this commandment is of great importance to how we survive as a civilized and spiritual people.

In my story,  TIMELESS SEARCH,  I take this question of  great importance one step further.   But I will leave that for you to discover in  TIMELESS SEARCH.

NPR.org » The Real Reason Gas Costs $4+ A Gallon

Published: April 02, 2012

In his latest column for the New York Times Magazine, Adam Davidson cites Gal Luft, an oil expert who dismisses political proposals from the left and the right to lower the price of gas. We asked him to elaborate in the following post.

When in December 2008, 60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl asked Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi how much it cost Saudi Arabia to produce one barrel of oil, he didn’t blink: “Probably less than $2 to produce a barrel.”

If it costs only $2 to produce a barrel of oil, then why do we pay over $105 a barrel?

Wall Street, Big Oil, President Obama, the Fed, environmentalists, the EPA have all been accused of pinching hardworking Americans at the pump.

But there is a much more important player that gets much less attention: OPEC.

Members of the oil cartel sit on top of nearly 80 percent of the world’s conventional crude reserves. Yet they account for only a third of global oil production.

We need oil now more than ever. In the past three decades, global oil demand grew 45 percent.

During that same time, OPEC’s production increased by merely 19 percent, despite the fact that two new countries (Angola and Ecuador) joined the cartel during that time.

Clearly, OPEC could produce more oil if it wanted to. But it won’t.

The reason is that OPEC countries produce almost nothing but oil. Their population is growing by leaps and bounds, and because Saudis pay no income tax, the House of Saud will need more and more money to keep its citizens happy, and avoid the fate of toppled leaders in Libya, Egypt and elsewhere.

——————————————– End of the Article ———————-

So what happens if we produce more oil?   OPEC, simply cuts back to keep prices rising and maintaining their profits.    What does a Cartel mean?  Consider this definition:  a collusive international association of independent enterprises formed to monopolize production and distribution of a product or service, control prices, etc.

Court: Oklahoma ban on Islamic law can be challenged | NewsOK.com

Is Sharia Law or International Law — coming to your local court? – If this Muslim has his way it may be!

In Oklahoma a state constitutional amendment was passed by 70% of the voters.  Its goal was to stop the use of other legal systems as the basis of court decisions.  Mentioned as examples were International Law and Muslim Sharia Law.  We in America DEFINE how we live and who we are as a people by the Laws Of Our Nation and the legal system of our courts.  Consider them the programming language that makes our country run!   If you change this, you re-make America in someone else’s image.  I have seen some of what Shari law looks like,  watching women  being stoned to death (see the picture to the right).  Even if this is not “representative”  of Sharia,  I do not want it as I do not want to change America.  The Muslims came here, to America,  for safety, peace, freedom and justice that they did not have in their “old countries.”   Now some of them want to make our country into the one they ran from!   If they really want Sharia law,  they can choose to go back to the country they ran from, because of its laws, violence and lack of freedom.  If they want to live here then they need to embrace America and help strengthen it as  most of us are doing and not try to chip away at our foundations through court decisions!  Using the very freedoms they came here for to destroy this freedom makes no sense,  unless the real purpose for coming here is to undermine and destroy America!

The decision the Oklahoma Supreme Court needs to make regards the protection of American Values.  Consider this quote from our national constitution:

The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States. A Person charged in any State with Treason, Felony, or other Crime, who shall flee from Justice, and be found in another State, shall on Demand of the  executive Authority of the State from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the State having Jurisdiction of the Crime.

Changing the state laws in America, from those which define us,  to include Sharia has far reaching consequences, as explained above.

Furthermore in our Bill Of Rights (The First Amendment) we guarantee the freedom of religion but not the imposition of any other system of law arising from religion or political decision making:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. 

The freedom to worship as you choose is promised but the freedom to demand America accept your religious laws as a basis of justice is not.   It is bad enough that we are confronted with those wanting to make America bi-lingual or more.  If you come to America, be an American and learn to speak English out of respect for your countrymen and your chosen country!   Learn more from this article below:
