Unindicted co-conspirator in terror funding case complains about FBI informants in mosques

* SoCal Muslims Angry at Informants in Mosques
What do you think CAIR’s objective is here? Obviously they want the FBI to stop placing informants in mosques, and to trust their assurances that they will help them with anti-terror efforts. Yet CAIR has opposed every anti-terror initiative that has ever come down the pike, most notably the Patriot Act. It aided the Flying Imams in their lawsuit against the passengers who reported them for suspicious behavior — a lawsuit that, had it succeeded, would have made Americans afraid to report suspicious behavior in airports for fear of being sued. And now CAIR wants informants out of the mosques — despite the fact, as Pamela points out here, that studies show that jihad violence and Islamic supremacism are taught in the vast majority of American mosques. If the FBI turns a blind eye to what is going on in the mosques, who will be the sole beneficiary?
“SoCal Muslims Angry at Informants in Mosques,” from NBCLosAngeles.com, February 28 (thanks to Pamela), with comments by Robert Spencer:
ANAHEIM, Calif. — A Muslim advocacy organization said Friday that American Muslims are feeling “anger, disillusionment and mistrust” toward the FBI in the aftermath of reports that it used an informant to infiltrate Southland mosques.
US citizen stabbed in Cairo tourist area
* From our “Nothing-to do-with Islam” department: The attacker was “mentally ill”
American, a teacher in his 50s, lightly wounded in attack; assailant tells police he acted out of hatred for foreigners, particularly after Israel’s Gaza offensive (Its not as if a good Muslim needed an excuse for attacking a kuffar; being a kuffar will suffice/ed)
An attacker stabbed a US citizen in front of his wife in a popular Cairo tourist area on Friday in the second attack on foreigners in the Egyptian capital in less than a week, security sources said
They said the American, a teacher in his fifties in an American school in the coastal city of Alexandria, was with his wife and a friend when he was lightly wounded in an unprovoked attack in a tourist area that is home to the 14th century Khan el-Khalili market.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property (either as a child, a wife, or a concubine) must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science (the science against which it had vainly struggled) the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”
On the occasion of its launch in 2004 from near Buffalo, New York, the Muslim television channel “Bridges TV” won the enthusiastic support of Secretary of State Colin Powell’s media assistant, Stuart Holliday: “I laud your expression of interest in promoting understanding and tolerance.” And so it went; Bridges TV also met with euphoric media coverage, uncritical academic reaction, and blessings from sports giants like Muhammad Ali and Hakeem Olajuwan.
* ‘Misunderstood’ Islamist Aasiya Hassan
On the political level, its raison d’être was based on the canard that Muslims in the United States suffer from bias and are victimized. That an idea took formal expression in 2000, when the Senate passed a resolution inveighing against the “discrimination” and “backlash” suffered by the American Muslim community, an insulting falsehood then and now.
On the ideological level, Bridges TV was a fraud, pretending to be moderate when it was just another member of the “Wahhabi lobby.” Endorsed by some of the worst Islamist functionaries in the country (Nihad Awad, Ibrahim Hooper, Iqbal Yunus, Louay Safi), it was an extremist wolf disguised in moderate sheep’s clothing.
From the start, however, Bridges TV amounted to a lie. Continue reading
* Since when is pandering to foreign dictators a desirable “analytical skill?”
Mark Steyn nails it:
Being on the House of Saud’s payroll, directly or indirectly, should render one ineligible for subsequent government service. Matt Welch said it best a few years back: If you listen to former U.S. ambassadors to Saudi Arabia with your eyes closed, they sound like Saudis.
If the Saudis nuked Delaware, the massed ranks of former ambassadors would be telling Larry King that, obviously, even the best allies have their difficulties from time to time, but this is essentially a little hiccup that can be smoothed over by closer consultation.
From Yid with Lid
Good news coming out of Washington, where the appointment of the Saudi/Chinese Government Lobbyist Chas Freeman Jr is beginning to receive some Congressional Noise.
Eli Lake of the Washington Times has the scoop about Republican objections to the appointment. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) wants the intel IG to review Freeman’s ties to Saudi money. This is from a letter Kirk is circulating among his colleagues:
Given his close ties to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, we request a comprehensive review of Ambassador Freeman’s past and current commercial, financial and contractual ties to the Kingdom to ensure no conflict of interest exists in his new position.
* This Saudi cock-sucker should have never been considered for the job in the first place…

Sun pays £30,000 damages to Muslim bus driver accused of fanaticism
- guardian.co.uk, Thursday 26 February 2009
A London bus driver today accepted £30,000 in damages from the Sun over a claim that he ordered passengers off his vehicle so that he could pray.
The story in March last year caused Arunas Raulynaitis considerable distress and embarrassment, his solicitor, Stephen Loughrey, told Mr Justice Eady at the high court in London.
