Willie Clitman Watch:
Show me where the money went: finally slick Willie opened the books on the ‘donations’ he collected over the years; the result is unsurprising andÂ disturbing: The contributions went to the William J. Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit created by the former president to finance his library in Little Rock, Ark., and charitable efforts “to reduce poverty and treat AIDS…”Â
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia gave $10 million to $25 millionÂ to the foundation, and other government donors included Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Italy and Jamaica. The Dutch national lottery gave $5 million to $10 million.Â
* Bolt: Â What on earth did those governments expect in return for their cash?
And which Dutch official chose to donate so much of the public’s cash to Clinton and his causes?
Robert Spencer: By posting this am I saying that Bill Clinton is different from any other powerful politician, in taking money from foreign donors who obviously hope to influence the political process? No, in this Bill Clinton is not singular. But look at this list: $10 million to $25 million from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Between $1 million and $5 million each from Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid, Friends of Saudi Arabia, the Dubai Foundation, and the governments of Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei and Oman. And the New York Post here is worried about money from India keeping Hillary from being kind to Pakistan! Has anyone stopped to ask whether or not all these millions coming in from Muslim states might be helping make Bill (and Hillary?) soft on the jihad?
How Clinton Sold Â Our Children to Islam
Allah ‘s apostle said, ” I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ (Hadith 4:52:196*)
Robert Baer, a 21 year veteran of the CIA’s Directorate of Operations states:
“Whether it was Osama bin Laden, Yasir Arafat, Iranian terrorism, Saddam Hussein, or any of the other evils that so threaten the world, the Clinton administration seemed determined to sweep them all under the carpet.“(1)
Leveraging the Clintons
ByÂ Jacob Laksin/FrontPageMagazine.comÂ Â
Ever since leaving office, Bill Clinton has adamantly refused to reveal the donors to his philanthropic organization, the William J. Clinton Foundation. This week’sÂ disclosureÂ of more than 200,000Â donorsto the foundation â€“ part of a deal with President-elect Barack Obama to allay concerns about possible conflicts of interest should Hillary Clinton be confirmed as secretary of state â€“ suggests a reason for the secrecy. Among those who’ve made a total of $492 million in contributions to the Clinton Foundation are several troubling figures and governments â€“ including supporters of the terrorist group Hezbollah, and the rulers of Saudi Arabia â€“ whose identities the former president would have preferred to keep private.
Notable on the disclosure list is that the foundation has received between $1 and $5 million from entrepreneur, politician and philanthropistÂ Issam Fares, a former deputy primer minister Lebanon. In the United States, Fares is best known as the CEO of the Wedge Foundation, a Houston-based investment firm. In his native Lebanon, however, Fares may be better known as an outspoken supporter of Hezbollah and an apologist for the Syrian dictatorship’s previous military occupation of his country. In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, for instance, Fares insisted that “it is a mistake to make a comparison between the al-Qaeda network” and Hezbollah. The latter was actually a “resistance party fighting the Israeli occupation,” Fares informedÂ Agence France-Presse, explaining that “Hezbollah did not carry out any resistance operation against American interests in Lebanon or abroad and did not target civilians in its resistance activities as happened on Sept. 11 at the World Trade Center.” In fact, Hezbollah carried out the 1983 bombing of the Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, killing a total of 241 American Marines, Navy, and Army personnel.
Nor was this a rare unguarded moment for the Lebanese politician. During a September 2004 address to the United Nations, FaresÂ voiced support for HezbollahÂ on an international stage, describing the terror group as a “national resistance movement.” “It is…the policy of Lebanon to support the National Resistance Movement which has played an important role in forcing Israeli withdrawal from South Lebanon,” Fares said. In the same speech, Fares condemned “Israeli forces” for their presence on the Lebanon’s border with the Golan Heights, while managing to excuse Syria’s far more brutal occupation of Lebanon. “There are Syrian forces in Lebanon,” Fares acknowledged. But he insisted that “these forces are on our territory upon the request of the Lebanese government” and that “Lebanon considers the presence of these troops dependent on security conditions in the region.” Fares’s stint as deputy prime minister ended the following year, with the fall of the pro-Syrian government of Prime Minister Omar Karami; Syria’s military occupation ended shortly thereafter. Fares’s services to the Syrian regime have not gone unnoticed. He has received the Syrian decoration of St. Ephrem, promoting him to the honorary rank of commander.
Clinton’s Kingdom ComeÂ
One of the Clinton Foundation’s largest donors is the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Disclosure forms indicate that of all government donors, the Saudi regime was the most generous, contributing between $10 and $25 million to the president’s foundation. This financial relationship has grown despite the fact that the home of the 9/11 hijackers remains the world’s leading financier of terrorism, including al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Testifying before the Senate Finance Committee this April, Treasury undersecretary Stuart LeveyÂ observedÂ that “Saudi Arabia today remains the location where more money is going to terrorism, to Sunni terror groups and to the Taliban than any other place in the world.” Besides topping the list of terror-sponsoring states, Saudi Arabia continues to rank at the bottom by almost every measure of political freedom. A 2008 Freedom HouseÂ surveyplaced Saudi Arabia among the least free county’s in the world, just a notch above Chinese-occupied Tibet and the war-torn Russian puppet state of Chechnya. The key Clinton foundation contributor also has the dubious distinction of being one of only seven countries in the world thatpunishes homosexuality by death.
Friends in Low PlacesÂ
Direct contributions are just one source of financing that the foundation draws from the Saudi government. The foundation has also received between $1 and $5 million from the pro-Saudi advocacy group, Friends of Saudi Arabia (FSA). Launched in 2005 and supported by the Saudi royal family, the group acts as a kind of public relations agency, protesting what it considers the country’s unfair portrayal in the U.S. and otherwise working to “dispel misconceptions” about the kingdom. Among these supposed “misconceptions” is Saudi Arabia’s association with terrorism. Prior the release of the 2007 film “The Kingdom,” for example, FSA executive director Michael Saba wrote aletterÂ to the chairman of Universal Studios expressing his concern “that the movie might present negative stereotypes about the people of Saudi Arabia.” Never mind that the film was loosely based on the very real May 2003Â terrorist bombingsÂ of an American compound in Riyadh that killed 34 and injured over 200. Not content to criticize a still-unreleased film, Saba noted that the FSA “would like to review the script and see an advanced viewing of the movie.” (In his zeal, Saba had apparently confused the U.S. for Saudi Arabia, whoseÂ Islamist censorsÂ let no film, song, or article circulate without alteration.)
Given his Saudi sponsors, it comes as no surprise that Saba himself is an anti-Israel zealot and conspiracy theorist. His 1984 book,Â The Armageddon Network, alleges widespread Israeli espionage at the highest level of the U.S. government, complete with a Justice Department cover-up. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the book has found its most devoted readershipÂ in the Islamic world. Today, Saba continues to see a hidden Israeli hand in international affairs. Rehearsing a favorite theme in 2004, heÂ claimedÂ â€“ on the basis of no evidence whatsoever â€“ that Israeli interrogators played a role in the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison.
In the company of fellow Gulf States Oman, Kuwait and Qatar, the United Arab Emirates is another rich source of the Clinton Foundation’s funds. Thus the president’s group has received between $1 and $5 million from the Dubai Foundation. Headed by Dubai’s ruler, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the foundation’s goals include improving education and creating jobs in the Middle East. But Sheikh Maktoum’s interests frequently run in a very different direction. In the past, the Sheikh hasÂ reportedlyÂ donated at least 1 million United Arab Emirate (UAE) dirhams (approximately $270,000 on the current exchange rate) to “the families of the Palestinian martyrs” â€“ that is, Palestinian terrorists killed in action. More recently, in November of 2006, the sheikh sponsored aconcertÂ by Lebanese songstress Julia Bourtos in honor of “Lebanese Martyrs” in Hezbollah.
Sheikh Zayed is just one of the Clinton Foundation’s prominent supporters in Dubai. The foundation has also received between $1 and $5 million from the Zayed family, the UAE’s Abu Dhabi-based royal family. That is not, however, the family’s most famous philanthropic outlet â€“ a description more fitting for the now-defunctÂ Zayed Center for Coordination and Follow-Up. Founded in 1999 and funded by Abu Dhabi’s later ruler, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the center was intended to serve as a kind of “think-tank” for the Arab world. Instead, the center became a notorious platform for anti-Semites, Holocaust deniers and supporters of terrorism. Typical of theÂ center’s activitieswas an October 11, 2001, report titled “The Zionist Movement and Its Animosity to Jews” that likened Zionism to Nazism. Ironically, among the last speakers hosted by the Zayed Center prior to its August 2003 closure was anti-Semitic conspiracy theoristÂ Michael Collins Piper, who took advantage of the occasion to posit a Jewish conspiracy behind everything from Watergate to the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
President Clinton would no doubt reject the extreme views of suchÂ donors. But the irony of this week’s disclosure is that it raises as many questions as it answers. For instance, given his foundation’s declared mission to promote “racial, ethnic, and religious reconciliation,” how can he justify his willing association with governments that routinely abuse human rights and fuel sectarian violence? Further, in light of the Clinton foundation’s dependency on such donors, what assurances will Hillary Clinton provide that her husband’s philanthropic interests will not stand in the way of the nation’s diplomatic priorities?
At least when it comes to the second question, critics have a ready answer. Assuming she’s confirmed, the former first lady should begin her tenure at the State Department by taking a tough stand against some of the Clinton’s foundation more prominent funders. At that point, perhaps, the millions in Saudi donations really will have done some good.
How Clinton Sold
Our Children to Islam
Expanded 12/4/03Â ~ JenT
Allah ‘s apostle said, ” I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ (Hadith 4:52:196*)
Islam’s Intent:Â Force or PersuasionÂ
Islam’s number one priority is to make all the world Islam, either by persuasion or force, and during his term, President Clinton provided both by weakening our defenses and surrendering our children in public school without a whimper. “Negotiations for peace” would be better described as laying down dead.
Each time America suffered a terrorist attack, President Clinton issued statements promising to “find the terrorists” only to:Â pardon 16 terrorists convicted of executing 130 bombings; refuseÂ deliveryÂ of Osama bin Laden from the Sudan; repeatedly refuse detailed information about al-Qaeda and Osama between terrorist bombings;Â Â shut down investigations of Islamic charities; radically downsize our military and gut the CIA.Â (1)Â (Details)
Robert Baer, a 21 year veteran of the CIA’s Directorate of Operations states:
“Whether it was Osama bin Laden, Yasir Arafat, Iranian terrorism, Saddam Hussein, or any of the other evils that so threaten the world, the Clinton administration seemed determined to sweep them all under the carpet.”(1)
Battleground: Public School
So just what DID President Clinton do? He “negotiated.” Evidence shows Clinton cut a deal with Islamic leaders to legalize and protect Muslim indoctrination in our public schools. If Clinton could give Islam the conversion of our youth, Islam’s resolve to destroy America would be appeased.
This was a tricky business with secular groups campaigning to strip all reference to the Bible and Christianity from schools. Therefore Clinton colluded with secular and religious-soundingÂ groups and based his new Presidential GuidelinesÂ (2)Â on a document drafted by theÂ American Muslim Council, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, theÂ ACLU which owns the copyrightÂ Â and many of the very groups attempting to censor Christianity today. This document can now be easily viewedÂ (3)Â .
In the guidelines, every single “religious expression” that opens the door for Islam came equipped with a clause of escape,Â (2a)Â a backdoor for the ACLU to attack should anything Christian dare enter public schools under the same guidelines as Islam employs.
Clinton then presented these guidelines as originally drafted byÂ “35 religious groups” and named it “Religious Expression in Public School. “Clinton failed to inform us, however, that these particular “religious groups” share a commitment to separation of church and state,Â as stated on the ACLU original draft. America, tired of censorship of Christian faith and noting the support of “35 religious groups”, gratefully accepted these guidelines, only to wonder why Christianity is continuously outlawed while Muslim indoctrination overwhelms our schools, includingchildren praying to Allah, memorizing the Quran and fasting for Ramadan.
Clinton included assurance that all students would be coerced to attend their Muslim lessons. He went beyond the American Muslim Council/ACLU’s guidelines and added a clause stripping us of parental rights and religious freedom:
“Students generally do not have a Federal right to be excused from lessons that may be inconsistent with their religious beliefs or practices.”
That explains why parents cannot opt children out of these inductive classes for Islam,Â a huge loss of our religious freedom.Â It is also why my school district superintendent showed me these guidelines and literally laughed in my face when I pointed out the incongruity.
Clinton’s Steps of Betrayal
Clinton met frequently with Abdurahman Alamoudi, executive director of the American Muslim Council who participated in the original draft.Alamoudi supports Hezbollah and Hamas and was recently arrested on 9/28/03 for illegally receiving funds from Libya. Alamoudi was also friend and adviser on Islamic affairs to Hillary Rodham Clinton. Large meetings and events with Muslim leaders at the White House became commonplace, including celebrating the end of the Ramadan fast, (Eid) which Hillary claimed as “an American event.”Â Â Secretary of State Madeline Albright hosted Moslem groups,Â where she discussed recruiting Muslims for State Department posts.Â (1b)
Then in 1995, President Clinton presented hisÂ Religious Expression in Public SchoolÂ guidelines, and through his Secretary of Education, described these guidelines as drafted by “35 religious groups” listing eight names thatÂ soundÂ Judeo-Christian, educational or patriotic,Â omitting the other recognizable culprits. Some of these “religious groups” have been filing lawsuits against the Bible while demanding a proselytizing version of Islam be forced down our throats today.Â (5)Â Clinton proved full knowledge and deceptive intent by falsely presenting these guidelines as drafted by “religious organizations.” (compare both documentsÂ Â )
These guidelines greatly impact public schools today. CNN’s Lou Dobbs interviewed Nadine Strossen, President of the ACLU on Dec. 19, 2003. Strossen referred to Clinton’s guidelines as the authority to support the ACLU’s lawsuits restricting Christmas celebrations and removing Nativity scenes from public schools. Strossen haughtily smiled as she said, “…and all these religious groups agreed to it!”
President Clinton and these “religious” partnerships opened wide the doors to our children’s forced “education” of a fairytale Islam, while the ACLU continues to convince the courts to censor the Bible and anything Christian.(4)Â (4a)Â Shamefully, the ACLU simultaneously fights for such causes asÂ mandatingÂ freshmen to read selected quotes from the Koran.Â (5)Â The ACLU and the like issued the rules to go to court with, and President Clinton knowingly presented them as his own “Presidential Guidelines” as he made surreptitious speeches with much aplomb about God. America swallowed it hook, line and sinker.
Cheers at the Gate:
President Clinton’s religious guidelines are applauded by Islamic organizations such as SoundVision, which reminds Muslims it is their RELIGIOUS OBLIGATION (Dawa) to promulgate Islam and methodically explains how in public school today, thanks to Clinton:
“In the U.S. one of the strongest arguments in favor of seeking religious accommodation for your child is President Bill Clinton’s 1995 statement of principles addressing the extent to which religious expression and activity are permitted in public school. This was given to every school district in the United States.”(6)
“School students are routinely exposed in their classroom to new information and opinions, hence they tend to be more receptive to new beliefs and ideas. Schools are therefore fertile grounds where the seeds of Islam can be sowed inside the hearts of non-Muslim students. Muslim students should take ample advantage of this opportunity and expose their school mates to the beautiful beliefs of Islam.”
“It has been proven that one to one contact with non-Muslim students in the classroom is the most effective way to share Islam…It is advised that brother work on the non-Muslim boys and likewise sister work on girls.”(6a)
America does not comprehend how determined Muslims are to make America Islam. Suicide bombers and fundamentalists have already demonstrated their willingness to kill and die for it. To be granted rights to perform Dawa in America’s public schools was a huge victory for Islam. Clinton gave them Dawa, our schools, our very children with his religious guidelines and cloaked it with a false inclusion of Christianity.
The guidelines state:
“Students may also speak to, and attempt to persuade, their peers about religious topics just as they do with regard to political topics.”
“Students have a right to distribute religious literature to their schoolmates”
“Public schools may not provide religious instruction, but they may teach about religion, including the Bible or other scripture: the history of religion, comparative religion, the Bible (or other scripture)-as-literature.”
That was a quick but explosive line: “or other scripture-as-literature.” Pro-Islam materials and books began pouring in from Saudi Arabia and other Muslim nations. Under Clinton’s protection, completely ignoring set limitations which are never enforced for Islam, a small sample of what our textbooks contain includes:
“The Quran is the final revelation, just as Muhammad is the final prophet.”
(new paragraph) “The Arabic word Quran can be loosely translated as ‘recitation.” In fact, the very first word the angel Gabriel spoke to Muhammad was “Recite.” […in FACT???]
“Ramadan is a holy time, because in this month Muhammad received his first message from Allah.”Â (13 for more)
Clinton’s guidelines were readily accepted by America as a sugarcoated pill promising our right to express our faith. America did not know the double standard installed or the original drafters’ confidence and resolve that the Bible would beÂ excludedÂ as played out in the courts today.
note: Soundvision states it is “Waqf fi sabellillah” which few Americans know means “devoting a plot of land [i.e. America] for Muslim religious purposes in the name of Allah.”
Islam Sends in Educational Troops
President Clinton clearly adopted MuslimÂ religious beliefsÂ into our public schools and proclaimed his success in his Ramadan message to Muslims.
President Clinton: “As America’s six-million-member Muslim community grows in numbers and prominence, Americans of every religious tradition are learning more about the origins and meaning of Islam. That on “the Night of Power,” the Angel Gabriel appeared to the Prophet Muhammad and revealed to him the first verses of the Koran. That the Koran declares that Ramadan was the month Allah’s words were sent down, and so should be spent in fasting.”Â (21)
America’s children certainly are learning these Muslim beliefs as fact, overseen by another IslamicÂ educational organization that flourished under Clinton’s regime. The Council on Islamic EducationÂ (7)Â (CIE) contributed to our public school textbooks, funded by domestic Islamic donors perhaps aided by foreign support. Founder and director Shabbir Mansuri boasted that he is waging a “bloodless” revolution, promoting world cultures and faiths in America’s classrooms.Â (8)Â CIE has warned scholars and public officials who do not sympathize with its requests that they will be perceived as racists, reactionaries, and enemies of Islam.”(9)
Houghton Mifflin textbooks became saturated with Muslim beliefs as the Council of Islamic Education (CIE) helped write the textbook (originally denied until the publisher’s Editorial Director was caughtÂ braggingÂ about it in print). After public outcry to the pro-Islamic bias of the textbook, “Across the Centuries”(10),Â the publisher Houghton Mifflin (HM) responded by stating that:
“…the Council on Islamic Education (CIE) did not contribute in writing the textbook. The scope of their involvement was limited to reviewing the textbook material.”
That denial was pure fabrication. In an earlier article at SoundVision, Abigail Jungreis, HM’s Editorial Director, credited CIE for providing textbook content:
“It is also with the help of the CIE that Houghton Mifflin’s textbooks have been able to show what Crusades were like for the Muslims. We’ve been able to give several perspectives on an event like that,” she says. “We see our reviewers as playing a crucial role in enabling us to present accurate and complete information”Â (11)
The textbook gives no indication that the Crusades section is based on the Muslim point of view, it is presented as fact and critical of Christians.
Founded in 1994, another Islamic organizationÂ during Clinton’s regime and dedicated to the re-education of America is the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Currently heavily scrutinized for its ties with terrorists, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper states: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic… but I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it throughÂ education.”Â (12)
Textbooks: AK-47s of Islam & the Liberal Left
Corruption in our textbooks is undeniable as children are taught Muslim beliefs as factÂ (13)Â (13a)Â (13b)Â and teachers’ assignments require children to repeat them as such.Â (14)Â Â There are documented cases of children being asked to fast for Ramadan(15)Â and get on their hands and knees and pray to Allah.(16)Â Clinton’s nominee, U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton, recently approved this prayer as a lesson for children to learn:
“In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of Creation,
The Compassionate, the Merciful,
King of Judgment-day!
You alone we worship, and to You alone we pray for help,
Guide us to the straight path.”
The Christian section in “A Message of Ancient Days” presents the Muslim version of Jesus, reduced to a “popular teacher with ideas.”(17)Â Pro-Islam bias in the textbooks have been substantiated by Daniel Pipes, PhD of the Middle East Forum, Dr. Robert Simonds, the American Textbook Council, and the Textbook League, all with whistleblowing conclusions.Â (18)Â
Children in the Trenches
Islam is determined to advance, entering by persuasion within our public schools and by sword at our borders. President Clinton has clearly provided both doorways as we are swarmed by Islam, courting our children while bombing our buildings.
Enter President Bush, met head-on by the onslaught of Islam fundamentalists, he took the bull by the horns at the brink of disaster and is courageously fighting to regain our nation. …But if President Bush has taken any action to clean up our schools from Muslim indoctrination, it is behind the scenes and I pray it is so…but with every day that passes, with every unanswered judgment by a treasonous court, hope for revival led by a godly president fades.
For as we are consumed with the war against terror, we cannot afford to neglect the battle raging over our children. We MUST restore sanity to our schools. Our Islam-inductive textbooks cost over $60 each for millions of children. States like California simply cannot afford to replace them. Our precious children are shouldering the burden as their religious freedoms have been stripped and they are being enticed to Islam, with their progress carefully watched by Muslim nations. For what other reason would a United Nations nuclear watchdog, the IAEA, refer its international members to theÂ textbook reviews at BlessedCause, exposing Islamic propaganda and sounding a public alarm?Â (19)Â Why is Saudi Arabia consistently one of the highest foreign visitors to our website of over 70 countries a month?Â (20)Â Â Because Islam’s resolve for the destruction of America depends on America’s willingness to swallow conversion of our youth to Islam.Â As the Quran, Islam’s holy book dictates, we will become Islam or we are to be destroyed.Â (20a)Â It is clearly evident that Clinton made promises behind closed doors prior to his Ramadan message to Muslims.Â (21)
Casualty of WeakÂ Leadership: Freedom
So as terrorists executed attacks on America, President Clinton slashed our defenses, gutted our intelligence, pardoned terrorists, halted investigations of Islamic charities and negotiated for peace, evidently with a powerful bargaining chip, our children through our public education system. Our children, our American heritage and our religious freedoms have been forfeit without a fight as our children are forced to learn “comparative religion” i.e., Islam propaganda, while criticizing both Judaism and Christianity in public school.
Is it hard to believe Clinton, professing to be Christian, could betray Christ and America like this? Examine the fruit. Lying under oath, dubious activities with staff, expediting RU-486, an abortion cocktail currently killing teenagersÂ (22a), slipping in an ACLU document as written by “religious groups” is compounded when one remembers how Hillary demanded public funding for (brace yourself) a dung covered depiction of the Virgin Mary, with breasts of elephant dung, surrounded by genital pornography at the Brooklyn Museum in October 1999.Â (22)Â (23)Included in the exhibit was a depiction the Last Supper with a topless woman in the place of Jesus. Together the Clintons met with Muslim groups in the White House so often it became commonplace. In speeches against President Bush he has condemned America by blaming us with the Crusades. With this kind of history, it is not hard to believe Clinton betrayed America’s Christian heritage and used our children as bargaining chips in negotiations with Islamic leaders.
America, Sound the Call! Rally for the love of our children!
It is time to shout “ENOUGH” of the liberal left debasement of our nation and swindling of our religious freedom. It is time to recognize this is America, a melting pot to BE AMERICAN, complete with rich heritage, morals and values to be proud of. An America to fight and die for, not one to pollute, corrupt and lay open the borders for attack. What’s frightening is, so many Democrats are the embodiment of Clinton.
And so we look to God and President Bush. If President Clinton could outlineÂ Religious Expression in Public School, why couldn’t President Bush delegate and enforce a similar document, this time including the preservation of our American heritage, recognizing the Judeo-Christian foundation, tradition and culture of our nation. Only God could find a way to clean up our textbooks without infringing on our God-given freedom to choose.Â I pray He lead President Bush in accomplishing that goal.
America, pray for President Bush, pray for our troops and pray for revival, God is our only hope.

Bill Clinton: Bought and paid for
Clinton for sale
By posting this am I saying that Bill Clinton is different from any other powerful politician, in taking money from foreign donors who obviously hope to influence the political process? No, in this Bill Clinton is not singular. But look at this list: $10 million to $25 million from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Between $1 million and $5 million each from Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid, Friends of Saudi Arabia, the Dubai Foundation, and the governments of Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei and Oman. And the New York Post here is worried about money from India keeping Hillary from being kind to Pakistan! Has anyone stopped to ask whether or not all these millions coming in from Muslim states might be helping make Bill (and Hillary?) soft on the jihad?
“Bill Clinton Releases Donor List,” by Chuck Bennett for theÂ New York Post, December 18 (thanks to James):
Former President Bill Clinton released a list of donors to his private foundation this morning after resisting making the names of his Saudi Arabian and other foreign benefactors public for years.The moves comes as Sen. Hillary Clinton prepares to become Secretary of State under President-elect Barack Obama and highlights the potential conflicts of interest she may face when sits down to negotiate with heads of state of foreign countries.
For instance, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia itself donated between $10 million to $25 million to the William J. Clinton Foundation, the nonprofit that manages his presidential library in Arkansas as well as donate to charities around the world.
Foreign governments directly donated at least $41 million.
In addition, Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid gave between $1 million to $5 million, as did the organizations Friends of Saudi Arabia and the Dubai Foundation.
Other Middle Eastern government donors include Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei and Oman – all of whom gave between $1 million to $5 million. Norway donated $5 to $10 million while Italy and Jamaica gave between $50,000 to $100,000.
Also on the list are influential Indian politicians and businessmen which critics say could hurt a Secretary of State Clinton’s perception of being an impartial arbiter between India and Pakistan.
The list also underscores ties between the Clintons and India, a connection that could complicate diplomatic perceptions of whether Hillary Clinton can be a neutral broker between India and neighbor Pakistan in a region where President-elect Barack Obama will face an early test of his foreign policy leadership.
