    Radical Christian Beheads ex-Wife and Cuts her fingertips off


    Hours before police could arrest a South Florida doctor for the brutal murder and mutilation of his ex-wife, detectives witnessed his family carry his lifeless body out of a Miami home after an apparent drug overdose.

    The headless body of Kimberly Lindsey, 49, a school nurse, was found in a sugarcane field in Clewiston, Fla. on Friday after she was reported missing five days earlier, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by The Palm Beach Post. She had also been shot in the chest and her fingertips cut off.

    "This is one of the more heinous crimes I've seen in a while," Palm Beach Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said at a press conference, adding that Lindsey's head and fingertips have not yet been found.

    Authorities say Lindsey did not show up for work at West Palm Beach’s Bak Middle School of the Arts on Monday, prompting police to visit her home where they found significant blood indicating foul play.

    Based on DNA evidence, police soon began 24-hour surveillance on her ex-husband, Albert Lambert, 52, an emergency room physician.

    On Sunday, undercover detectives saw Lambert's sister and boyfriend attempt to carry a sheet-wrapped body from the sister's Miami home.

    “We hope they were taking him to the hospital but you never know,” Bradshaw told reporters.

    Paramedics tried to revive Lambert, but he was pronounced dead at a Miami hospital due to a narcotics overdose. His death has not been ruled a suicide.

    The former couple, married for nearly 22 years, had three daughters together and had been divorced since February.

    Just days before Lindsey's disappearance, a judge had found Lambert in contempt of court after he said he would "disappear or go to jail" before he paid any contested alimony or child support.

    "The bottom line is we were going to charge him with first-degree murder, no doubt,” Bradshaw said at the press conference.

    We don’t believe there’s any other people involved in this," the sheriff told the Palm Beach Post. "Think about it: he’s a doctor — who’s got better skill to do that?”

    In a public plea for help in finding her missing mother, Lindsey's oldest daughter called her a "self-made, independent woman" and a mother who was a "nurturing" and "loving."

    Bak Middle School officials say that the clinic where Lindsey worked will be named in her honor and grief counselors will available for students, teachers, and parents, reports NBC 6.



    The original title of this news story was "Missing school nurse decapitated"; they use the word "decapitated" rather than "beheading". They use the word "decapitated" when it is their own who does this crime and they use the word "beheading" when it is a Muslim who does this crime. If you are not familiar with linguistics then you might not see the point. The word "decapitated" implies an accident (e.g. fell down) and the word "beheading" is used for a direct action by someone (e.g. thrown down).

    Default U.S. Charities Funding Israel’s Secret Nuclear Weapons Program

    Lawsuit spotlights U.S. charities that fund Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program

    Oct 28 2014

    The following is being released by the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy:

    A federal lawsuit seeks immediate release of a closely held government report about how American branches of Israeli charitable and educational institutes fund secret nuclear weapons research and development programs.

    An unclassified 1987 study conducted for the Department of Defense titled “Current Technology Issues in Israel” discovered Technion University technicians developing nuclear missile re-entry vehicles and working at the Dimona nuclear weapons production facility. Hebrew University computer scientists working at the Soreq nuclear facilities were “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs.” Israel’s Weizmann Institute “studied high energy physics and hydrodynamics needed for nuclear bomb design, and worked on lasers to enrich uranium, the most advanced method for making the material dropped on Hiroshima in 1945″ say sources attributed to the report cited in the lawsuit.

    IRmep filed suit for the report in the DC District Court as part of a public-interest drive to obtain long overdue enforcement of the Symington and Glenn Amendments to the Foreign Assistance Act. The laws prohibit U.S. foreign aid to nuclear weapons states such as Israel that are not signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

    A recent Google Consumer Survey (PDF) reveals that despite longstanding Israeli and US government gag orders on publicly discussing the arsenal, 63.9 percent of Americans now believe Israel possesses nuclear weapons. 60.7 percent of Americans oppose sending the largest share (9 percent) of the U.S. foreign aid budget to Israel.

    Israel’s Weizmann Institute, Technion, and Hebrew University raise substantial tax-exempt charitable funding through affiliates in the United States creating a “tax gap” that must be financed by individual American taxpayers. According to their most recent IRS filings, American branches of the three organizations raise a combined $172 million in annual U.S. tax-exempt funding. IRmep’s “request for determination” filings with the IRS reveal that secret foreign nuclear weapons development has no recognized U.S. tax-deductible “social welfare” purpose.

    Defendants Department of Defense, the DC US Attorney Office and Attorney General have until October 30 to respond to IRmep’s public interest lawsuit demanding release of the explosive report. The Center for Policy and Law Enforcement is a unit of the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy in Washington. Inquiries about the lawsuit or opinion poll results may be directed to Grant F. Smith at info@irmep.org or 202-342-7325.



    US went heavily after Holy Land Foundation for “funding terrorists” when they used their charities to send aid to Palestinians. Most of the Management was given heavy and unfair sentences. Using charities as a front for Nuke funding is not only an act of terrorism but also a treason to have those in the US engaging in this. Where is the attorney general now?

    Default White Christian Sentenced for Killing Unarmed Teen Over ‘Loud Music’

    White Christian sentenced to life plus 105 years for killing unarmed teen over ‘loud music’

    17 Oct 2014

    Michael Dunn, a middle-aged white man, was sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus 90 years, by a Florida judge on Friday for killing an unarmed black teenager in an argument over loud rap music.

    Dunn, 47, a software engineer, testified at his murder trial last month he thought he was defending himself from an armed threat when he fired 10 rounds at an SUV carrying four teens at a Jacksonville gas station parking lot, killing Jordan Davis, 17, in November 2012.

    Under Florida law, first-degree murder is punishable by life in prison without parole. Dunn received an additional 90 years in prison for earlier convictions on three counts of attempted murder of the other teens, none of whom were injured. Prosecutors waived the death penalty before trial.

    The Dunn case drew comparisons to George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder in Florida last year in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, another unarmed black 17-year-old. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, said he fired in self-defense.

    Dunn and Davis exchanged words before the shooting about the loud music coming from the SUV.

    The jury, composed of 10 whites and two blacks, took less than five hours to reach a verdict. In a previous trial in February, a jury deadlocked after deliberating the murder charge in Davis’ death for four days, but convicted Dunn on three counts of attempted murder for firing at the other teenagers in the vehicle.

    State Attorney Angela Corey said Dunn’s actions after the shooting, including leaving the scene without calling 911, were clear evidence of guilt.

    Religious Christian nearly decapitates son of Oklahoma state trooper

    October 30, 2014

    Isaiah Marin, 21, called 911 and said, 'I murdered someone,' before being caught Wednesday afternoon, covered in blood and still armed with a large blade, on a Stillwater, Okla., street. The victim, 19-year-old Jacob Crockett, was a friend of his alleged killer and his 'head was mostly severed from his body,' police said. The pair had argued previously over the victim's practicing witchcraft.

    An Oklahoma “religious zealot” and heavy drug user nearly decapitated an acquaintance before calling 911 and admitting to the grisly slaying, police said.

    Isaiah Marin, 21, ran from the Stillwater apartment Wednesday afternoon before being caught by police, covered in blood and still armed with the large blade, according to an arrest affidavit.

    Following a trail of blood, cops found 19-year-old Jacob Crockett dead inside a nearby apartment.

    The teen was the son of an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper and his “head was mostly severed from his body,” Police Capt. Randy Dickerson told reporters Thursday at a news conference.

    Marin had “strong” religious beliefs and was watching videos on YouTube “related to his Christian beliefs and the Book of Matthew” before the murder, according to an affidavit obtained by the Daily News. The documents also alleged that the pair had previous arguments because Marin disagreed with Crockett practicing witchcraft.

    Marin and his brother were playing cards when Isaiah Marin picked up the weapon and pulled it from its sheath, swinging it around, the affidavit says. His brother warned Marin to be careful.

    “I would never cut you bro,” Marin said, according to the affidavit.

    But later on, the witness heard a noise “described as the sounds of someone getting stabbed,” and looked up to see blood pouring from Crockett’s chest and Marin holding the blade, according to the court document.

    Marin reportedly had feuded with Crockett in the past because the victim was practicing witchcraft, the document said.

    The brother fled, but Marin follow and tried to calm him down, promising to explain why he killed Crockett in letters from jail, the affidavit said.

    Marin later called 911 and said, “I murdered someone,” before rambling about magic and sacrifice and telling another dispatcher, “I hacked them to death with a machete," the document says.

    A passerby later reported seeing Marin covered with blood and armed with the blade running down a highway. Cops later found Crockett dead in the apartment kitchen and “evidence at the scene indicating the suspect was involved in the use of illegal drugs,” Dickerson said.

    Dickerson said religion was “not pertinent” to the murder case, the Tulsa World reported.

    Marin maintained at least two Facebook pages, and on one wrote of troubled thoughts. “Tried to take on a demon and God had to help me through the tough parts,” he wrote in August. “Got to be careful with my words and pay closer attention to my emotions. Need to figure out how to keep on speaking when I'm with the presence of the Lord God.”

    “Not proud of my mistakes,” he wrote days earlier. “Correcting them sounds painful.”

    Marin was charged with first-degree murder and ordered held without bail during an arraignment Thursday. He's next due in court Dec. 1.

    Christian Teenage soldier made nail bomb and owned terror handbook dressed in Ku Klux Klan costume for Facebook photo

    Ryan McGee, 19, who served with the 5th Battalion The Rifles, was detained at an Army base in Paderborn, Germany, late last year


    A British soldier has admitted making a nail bomb after cops found the device and a copy of an explosives-making manual at his home.

    Ryan McGee, 19, also pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey in London to a charge relating to the possession of bomb-making manual The Anarchist Cookbook.

    McGee, who served with the 5th Battalion The Rifles, was detained at an Army base in Paderborn, Germany, late last year.

    His detention followed the discovery of a suspicious device, later confirmed to be a nail bomb, at an address on Mellor Street last November.

    Alongside the homemade device, officers also found a copy of The Anarchist Cookbook - a book published in 1971 which contains instructions on the manufacture of explosives and illicit drugs.

    A cordon was put in place by police at the scene during the bomb alert and 30 residents were evacuated to nearby Lewis Street Primary School.

    Army bomb disposal officers were also called in. The nail bomb was discovered after police arrived at the house with a search warrant as part of an investigation into abusive images.

    McGee, a former Salford City Academy pupil, was serving with the armed forces with 5th Batallion the Rifles in Paderborn, Germany, at the time of the discovery.

    He joined the armed forces shortly after leaving school in 2011.

    Private McGee was taken into military custody days later and flown back to the UK handed over to Greater Manchester Police and arrested under Section 57 of the Terrorism Act.

    The former soldier's Facebook profile showed numerous images of McGee dressed in English Defence League clothing and Ku Klux Klan costumes, as well as images of former EDL leader Tommy Robinson.

    He also 'likes' the official page of former BNP leader Nick Griffin. McGee appeared before the Central Criminal Court in London. The court confirmed he pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of a document of information useful to terrorism.

    He also pleaded guilty to a second charge of making explosive substances under suspicious circumstances. McGee is due to be sentenced next month.

    An Army spokesman confirmed at the time of the incident that the Royal Military Police were working closely with Greater Manchester Police regarding the case.

    He added: "All those who are found to fall short of the armed force's high standards are dealt with through the disciplinary process.

    Instances of unacceptable behaviour in the armed forces are investigated and appropriate action taken - up to and including dismissal."

    McGee was based in Paderborn, Germany, at the time with the battalion. McGee was released on bail ahead of sentencing.

    He will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on November 28. The Ministry of Defence wasn't available for comment.

    Christian Man Beheads Own Mother

    BY Erik Badia , Larry Mcshane - October 29, 2014

    A psychotic killer decapitated his college professor mom and dumped her corpse in the street before stepping in front of a Long Island Rail Road train to end a grisly murder-suicide.

    Patricia Ward, 66, was savagely killed inside the family’s gore-spattered Farmingdale, L.I., apartment by her chronically unemployed son Derek, Nassau County police Det. Lt. John Azzata said Wednesday.

    Derek Ward, 35, had a psychiatric record dating back a decade and a brief rap sheet, and was carrying a Smith & Wesson pistol and 100 valiums when he died Tuesday night, Azzata said.

    Ward used a knife to kill and behead his mother, a former professor at Farmingdale State College, part of State University of New York. He then dragged her body and head outside, leaving each on either side of the street.

    Cops said the murder weapon was recovered, and the slain woman suffered multiple stab wounds and other signs of trauma — including broken ribs.

    Passing drivers initially thought the corpse was some kind of Halloween prank until discovering the bloody truth.

    Christian Psychologist Creates Hoax Rape Case


    A former California prison psychologist accused of staging a home invasion and sexual assault pleaded no contest to a felony conspiracy charge.

    Prosecutors say Laurie Ann Martinez, 36, of Sacramento committed the elaborate hoax to convince her husband that they need to move to a better neighborhood.

    In Sacramento County Superior Court on Wednesday, Martinez was sentenced to five years of probation and 180 days of electronic monitoring. She was also ordered to pay more than $4,000 in restitution for the police investigation.

    Martinez made a frantic 911 call last April after she created a scene in her Sacramento home that appeared as if someone ransacked the place and attacked her. She split her own lip and had a friend, 33-year-old Nicole Snyder, wear boxing gloves to punch her in the face, police said.

    According to the criminal complaint, Martinez rubbed sandpaper on her knuckles, ripped her blouse off to expose her top, dropped her pants to the ankles and "urinated on herself to make officers believe she had lost consciousness," The Sacramento Bee ( ) reported. http://bit.ly/wI84Lg

    The two women also removed two laptop computers, credit cards, a video game console, purse and camera from Martinez's home and hid them at Snyder's place, according to the complaint.

    Snyder, who cooperated with the investigation, pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor and was sentenced Wednesday to three years of probation. She was also ordered to do community service and pay the same restitution fee.

    Prosecutors called Martinez's behavior outrageous, saying it undermined the interests of true sexual assault victims.

    "Law enforcement is not a toy to be casually utilized by people to further their own personal agenda," said Deputy District Attorney Chris Carlson.

    Martinez's attorney, Michelle Spaulding, said her client is "glad this is over and she would like to get her life back together."

    Martinez has since lost her psychologist license and was fired from the Sacramento state prison in December.

    Online court records show her husband filed for divorce a month after she filed the false report, according to the Sacramento Bee.

    Christian American Terrorist Plotted To Bomb Muslim Holy Sites in Palestine

    By BEN HARTMAN -12/09/2014

    Terrorist - Adam.jpg

    An American fugitive living in Palestinian- controlled cities in the West Bank who planned to carry out terrorist attacks against the country’s Islamic holy sites was indicted by Israel on Tuesday.

    Adam Everett Livvix, a Christian who is wanted in the United States for questioning on drug-related charges, was indicted by the Netanya Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday for illegal possession of arms and for being an undocumented alien. He also faces two other indictments on weapons charges.

    Livvix was apprehended by police on November 19 while trying to flee a raid on his apartment, during which he leaped from the seventh-floor apartment to the balcony of the floor below, where he was arrested.

    In their court statement, representatives of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Israel Police said Livvix is from Texas, but there are other indications he is from Illinois, including an online obituary for a man who appears to be his late father. His sister in Illinois, contacted by The Jerusalem Post, did not know about his indictment and said she needed to speak to her family before talking to the press.

    According to the first indictment, Livvix, who arrived in Israel on a tourist visa on March 7, 2013, had on many occasions told his acquaintances “about his negative opinions toward the Arab population in Israel and his desire to cause harm to Islamic holy sites in Israel through the use of explosive devices.”

    In October 2014, he moved into the Netanya apartment of an IDF soldier who also holds American citizenship.

    Soon after, he asked the soldier if he could help him acquire weapons, which the indictment says included 1.4 kg. of explosive bricks.

    The indictment says that, shortly after Livvix moved in with the soldier, he asked him to acquire stun grenades for him, saying they were “so he could protect himself from Arabs while he was working in Jerusalem.” The soldier agreed and stole six stun grenades as well as tear gas canisters and smoke grenades from his IDF base and gave them to Livvix.

    Later, the soldier stole two explosive bricks and fuses, and supplied the first brick and the grenades to Livvix in exchange for NIS 2,500. Livvix made his soldier roommate a down payment of NIS 500, the indictment states.

    In late October, Livvix took the bomb and the grenades and stashed them in a storage shed next to his apartment.

    According to police, Livvix entered Israel last year while on the run from US law enforcement.

    He left the Palestinian territories and illegally entered Israel, where he allegedly passed himself off as a soldier in the elite Navy SEALs commando unit.

    During questioning, Livvix told police he had committed a number of fraud-related crimes.

    He also admitted to making initial preparations for terrorist attacks against Islamic holy sites in Israel. None of the three indictments mention specific targets, and it is unclear if Livvix had actually plotted any specific attacks.

    Authorities said on Tuesday that the Livvix investigation is being conducted in coordination with the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    The second indictment says that a soldier named as “BB”, also an American citizen, stole two explosive bricks in August 2014 from his base and asked his friend “GG” to help him get rid of them. GG later met Livvix, who told him he was looking to acquire explosives. GG told Livvix about BB, and said he would put them in touch. On October 21, GG and Livvix agreed that Livvix would pay NIS 4,000 for two explosive bricks.

    Livvix asked for more time to get the money together, and in the meantime, on November 3, BB sold the bricks to an undercover military police officer.

    The third indictment states that at some point during 2013, Livvix lived on Moshava Kinneret by the Sea of Galilee. At the moshav he met “DD,” who lived on Moshav Avnei Eitan on the Golan Heights. DD told Livvix that a soldier living in his apartment had bricks of C4 plastic explosive and was keeping them in a closet.

    Livvix told him to bring him as much as he could of the C4, as well as whatever other weapons he could find in the closet. DD took some of the C4 and an unknown quantity of other weapons, the indictment states, and gave them to Livvix. The next day DD asked him to give him back the weapons, out of fear that he and Livvix would be caught. Livvix was angered by the request and threatened DD, the indictment states, though he later returned them.

    The indictments present a picture of an amateur criminal who didn’t make much effort to cover his tracks. Prosecutors say in the first indictment that after he acquired the weapons through his roommate, Livvix showed them off to guests who visited his apartment. He also spoke openly to acquaintances about his “negative feelings toward Arabs”, one indictment says, especially in conversations with his ex-girlfriend.

    An indictment says that these people were among those who tipped off police and testified to detectives about the weapons and Livvix’s hatred of Arabs and alleged plans to harm Islamic holy sites.

    The first indictment says of Livvix that “his actions show the danger he presents to the public, and also the danger that he will try to interfere with the case.” It also mentions the “clear and obvious danger” posed by an illegal alien in possession of explosives, and that his attempt to flee police by jumping from his apartment window indicates that he is a flight risk and should be kept in custody.

    The Netanya Magistrate’s Court on Monday ordered Livvix to be kept in custody until the end of legal proceedings against him, and ordered him to be sent for psychiatric evaluation.



    This news story has many different headlines by different news providers, yet none of them give the correct headline: "Christian American Terrorist", which is what he really is. There are three terrorists here; this one Christian American, and the other two Jewish Israelis/Americans.

    Christian wielding machete and hammer 'shouting white power' attacks Muslim


    A man wielding a machete allegedly attacked a 24-year-old shopper after storming the aisles of a Tesco supermarket in what appeared to be a racially-motivated assault.

    Shoppers were forced to flee the store in Mold, Flintshire, yesterday afternoon, when the man entered carrying a machete in one hand and a hammer in the other, according to witnesses.

    He was said to be shouting 'white power' before targeting the victim near the entrance to the shop. The victim suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital.

    Police arrested a 25-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder after the attack and said they are not looking for any other suspects. The suspect, who lives locally, has not been charged.

    Witnesses said that a man entered the store shouting 'white power' while carrying a large knife - possibly a machete - in one hand, and what looked like a hammer in the other.

    Rich Fay was in the store with his father, when the attack took place. Fay said: 'We were in the magazine aisle and heard a loud scream which we thought, given the time, might have been some school kids or something. We hung around for a while and then heard someone shout "white power".

    'As we went around the corner, we saw a man with a knife in one hand and something that looked like a hammer in the other that still had the tags on them. Then he was being reprimanded by somebody who tried to grab a hold of him. He was dragged out of the store.'

    Mr Fay said: 'It was chaotic. The staff told everyone to get out of the store. Everyone was bewildered, quite a few shoppers didn't realise what had gone on, it was surreal.'

    Michael Ball was walking past the store with his partner as the scenes were unfolding. He said: 'We spoke to staff and shoppers who said two men were running around the store, one chasing another, with a hammer and a long curved blade. Some described it as a machete, one man was heard to be shouting "white power".'

    Another witness, who asked not to be named, said: 'We approached the door and everybody was rushing out panicking and we heard a man was in the store with a knife and a hammer and they were trying to calm him down.'

    DCI Alun Oldfield, of Wrexham CID, who is leading the investigation said from the scene yesterday: 'At 1.40pm this afternoon a 24-year-old man was shopping in the store when he was attacked.

    'As a result the man sustained serious but not life threatening injuries and was conveyed to a local hospital.

    'Initial indications are this is a racially motivated attack and as such management of the community impact will feature significantly in order to provide public reassurance.

    'North Wales Police are treating the matter as attempted murder and if you witnessed the attack please contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 and quote reference S006316.

    The Christian Terrorist Movement No One Wants To Talk About


    Last Friday, Larry McQuilliams was shot and killed by police after unleashing a campaign of violence in Austin, Texas, firing more than 100 rounds in the downtown area before making a failed attempt to burn down the Mexican Consulate. The only casualty was McQuilliams himself, who was felled by officers when he entered police headquarters, but the death toll could have been far greater: McQuilliams, who was called a “terrorist” by Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo, had several weapons, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and a map pinpointing 34 other buildings as possible targets — including several churches.

    While the impetus for McQuilliams’ onslaught remains unclear, local authorities recently announced that he may have been motivated by religion — but not the one you might think. According to the Associated Press, police officers who searched McQuilliams’ van found a copy of “Vigilantes of Christendom,” a book connected with the Phineas Priesthood, an American white supremacist movement that claims Christian inspiration and opposes interracial intercourse, racial integration, homosexuality, and abortion. Phineas priests take their name from the biblical figure Phinehas in the book of Numbers, who is described as brutally murdering an Israelite man for having sex with a foreign woman, who he also kills. Members of the Phineas Priesthood — which people “join” simply by adopting the views of the movement — are notoriously violent, and some adherents have been convicted of bank robberies, bombing abortion clinics, and planning to blow up government buildings. Although McQuilliams didn’t leave a letter explaining the reason for his attack, a handwritten note inside the book described him as a “priest in the fight against anti-God people.”

    McQuilliams’ possible ties to the Phineas Priesthood may sound strange, but it’s actually unsettlingly common. In fact, his association with the hateful religious group highlights a very real — but often under-reported — issue: terrorism enacted in the name of Christ.

    To be sure, violent extremism carried out by people claiming to be Muslim has garnered heaps of media attention in recent years, with conservative pundits such as Greta Van Susteren of Fox News often insisting that Muslim leaders publicly condemn any acts of violence perpetrated in the name of Islam (even though many already have).

    But there is a long history of terrorist attacks resembling McQuilliams’ rampage across Austin — where violence is carried out in the name of Christianity — in the United States and abroad. In America, the Ku Klux Klan is well-known for over a century of gruesome crimes against African Americans, Catholics, Jews, and others — all while ascribing to what they say is a Christian theology. But recent decades have also given rise to several “Christian Identity” groups, loose organizations united by a hateful understanding of faith whose members spout scripture while engaging in horrifying acts of violence. For example, various members of The Order, a militant group of largely professed Mormons whose motto was a verse from the book of Jeremiah, were convicted for murdering Jewish talk show host Alan Berg in 1984; the “Army of God”, which justifies their actions using the Bible, is responsible for bombings at several abortion clinics, attacks on gay and lesbian nightclubs, and the explosion at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia; and Scott Roeder cited the Christian faith as his motivation for killing George Tiller — a doctor who performed late-term abortions — in 2009, shooting the physician in the head at point-blank range while he was ushering at church.

    These incidents have been bolstered by a more general spike in homegrown American extremism over the past decade and a half. Between 2000 and 2008, the number of hate groups in America rose 54 percent according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, and white-supremacist groups — including many with Christian roots — saw an “explosion” in recruitment after Barack Obama was elected the country’s first African-American president in 2008. In fact, the growth of this and other homegrown terrorist threats has become so great that it spurred then-Attorney General Eric Holder to revive the Domestic Terror Task Force in June of this year.

    Christian extremism has ravaged other parts of the world as well. Northern Ireland and Northern India both have rich histories of Christian-on-Christian violence, as does Western Africa, where the Lord’s Resistance Army claims a Christian message while forcibly recruiting child soldiers to terrorize local villages. Even Europe, a supposed bastion of secularism, has endured attacks from people who say they follow the teachings of Jesus. In 2011, Anders Behring Breivik launched a horrific assault on innocent people in and around Oslo, Norway, using guns and bombs to kill 77 — many of them teenagers — and wound hundreds more. Breivik said his actions were an attempt to combat Islam and preserve “Christian Europe,” and while he rejected a “personal relationship with Jesus Christ,” he nonetheless championed Christianity as a “cultural, social, identity and moral platform” and claimed the faith as the forming framework for his personal identity.

    Chillingly, experts warn that something like Breivik’s attack could easily happen in the United States. Daryl Johnson, a former Department of Homeland Security analyst, said in a 2010 interview that the Hutaree, an extremist militia group in Michigan that touts Christian inspiration, possessed a cache of weapons larger than all the Muslims charged with terrorism the United States since the September 11 attacks combined.

    Yet unlike the accusatory responses to domestic jihadist incidents such as the Fort Hood massacre, news of McQuilliams’ possible ties to the Christian Identity movement has yet to produce a reaction among prominent conservative Christians. Greta Van Susteren, for instance, has not asked Christian leaders such as Pope Francis, Rick Warren, or Billy Graham onto her show to speak out against violence committed in name of Christ. Rather, the religious affiliation of McQuilliams, like the faith of many right-wing extremists, has largely flown under the radar, as he and others like him are far more likely to be dismissed as mentally unstable “lone wolfs” than products of extremist theologies.

    Granted, right-wing extremism — like Muslim extremism — is a complex religious space. Some participants follow religions they see as more purely “white” — such as Odinism — and others act more out of a hatred for government than religious conviction. Nevertheless, McQuilliams’ attack is a stark reminder that radical theologies exist on the fringes of most religions, and that while Muslim extremism tends to make headlines, religious terrorism is by no means unique to Islam.

    There was a simpler time in America, a time when racists wore white hoods and carried torches, when Nazis wore swastikas and a skinhead could shave his scalp without being mistaken for a metrosexual. But those days are long behind us. Now, apparently, white supremacists hold conferences with guest speakers and video hookups to their colleagues overseas, kind of like a Davos for the intellectually vacant. This is tricky terrain for a politician, as Steve Scalise, the third highest-ranking Republican in the House, found out this week. Back in 2002, Scalise apparently spoke to a conference in New Orleans hosted by the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO, for short), which is kind of like a lobby for neo-Nazis and other white extremists.

    Scalise said he couldn’t recall the speech and had no idea who these people were. And really, how are you supposed to know these days if you’re talking to the Ku Klux Klan or, say, a “Star Trek” convention with an unusual number of Jean-Luc Picards?

    There are no hard and fast rules, of course, but let’s consider a few useful guidelines for knowing when you’ve got a problem, just in case you’re thinking about a career in national politics.

    1. The group was founded by David Duke.

    To be fair, Duke is a relatively common name in public life, and it’s easy to get confused. You’ve got Patty Duke and Duke Ellington, and of course Michael Dukakis. This being Louisiana, you can’t forget Bo and Luke Duke. Why wouldn’t you show up at a convention if you thought you were getting a ride in that sweet car with Catherine Bach?

    But pay careful attention here, because David Duke is actually a pretty notorious character. Starting in 1988, when he first ran for president as a Democrat (alas, only one Duke could emerge victorious), this Duke was for many years the most recognizable, articulate and unapologetic white supremacist in America — a glib and embarrassing reminder of the South’s ignominious past. He even served a term in the legislature. For those of us who came of age in the Reagan era, even if we never stepped foot in Louisiana, David Duke was like some touring museum exhibit, the last of the crusading Klansmen.

    So if Duke is putting on your conference, or is speaking at it, or is anywhere in the same ZIP code and hasn’t yet been rearrested, you probably want to exercise caution.

    2. Banners that say things like “White Power” hang from the ceiling.

    Again, this is confusing. Because you might peer out through the blinding stage lights and think the banner says, you know, “white powder.” And you might think you’re at a drug legalization conference, which is all very mainstream these days, or maybe a ski industry confab. Or you might think “white power” actually refers to a kind of alternative energy, like “clean coal.” Although you can get intro trouble here, too — just look up Solyndra.
    Anyway, this is why it helps to read some of the group’s written materials before you block off that date on the calendar. In this case, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, these have included whimsical remembrances of happier days in the 1930s when Germany was dominated by little Aryan kids frolicking through the fields. If that wasn’t in your briefing book, maybe hire some new staff.

    3. The name of the group is the European-American Unity and Rights Organization.

    This is so nonsensical, really, that I had trouble even typing it without looking it up three times. Actually, Duke originally called the group the National Organization for European-American Rights, or NOFEAR, but then the sportswear company “No Fear” filed a trademark infringement suit against him, and it turned out that Duke had maybe just a little fear, because he quickly changed the name to EURO. Currencies don’t sue.

    Now, you know, political groups have all kinds of meaningless names, but they usually sound like “Americans Forward” or “Citizens Together” or “Blabbedy-blah-blah for Rainbows.” If the group you’re talking to sounds like it might have a paramilitary arm, it’s best to ask.

    4. The hotel hosting the event is ashamed.

    Trust me, I’ve been around, and budget hotels are not easily embarrassed. I once stuck my head into a dingy banquet room in New Hampshire and saw a Rod Stewart impersonator, about 20 years older than the actual Rod Stewart, gyrating his hips to “Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?” It stayed with me for years. No one even considered apologizing.

    But in this case, the Best Western Landmark in Metairie, La., which you can imagine doesn’t do a whole lot of moral policing as a rule, seemed mortified by its role in hosting the 2002 conference. In response to protests before the event that Scalise somehow missed, the hotel said it didn’t share the group’s convictions but would honor its “contractual obligations” anyway.

    This came after the Chicago Cubs’ AAA team, the Des Moines Cubs, announced that it would change its travel plans to avoid the hotel because of the white supremacist gathering. I mean, Steve, did you not see the movie “42”? Baseball clubs are not historically known for their extreme sensitivity to racist hotels. So maybe that should have tipped you off.

    5. No one actually cares about your tax stand.

    Scalise told NOLA.com, which had some excellent coverage this week, that at the time of the EURO conference he had been doing a lot of public speaking about his opposition to a local tax bill and had even talked to the League of Women Voters. You can see the obvious similarities here. The League of Women Voters espouses some deeply controversial ideas too, like suffrage. Also, little-known fact: Its founders originally wanted to call it the National Initiative for Knowledge in Elections, or NIKE. That was a debacle.

    Be that as it may, I’m guessing the League of Women Voters’ attendees had some genuine curiosity about the tax debate, as opposed to asking, say, “Would you be in favor of restricting voting rights to only those citizens whose genetic composition could be determined to be no less than 98 percent Caucasian?” Or “Can you comment on the rumor that there are black men serving in Congress and that they use the same water fountains?” Questions like that should raise a red flag.

    One last bit of guidance: If you do end up accidentally speaking to a roomful of white supremacists, try to make a note of it somewhere, because eventually someone who doesn’t like you is going to figure it out, and the last thing you want is to be caught unaware and have to say you really have no idea.

    If that happens, it’s not just the appearance of indulging pathetic, retro racism you’ll have to worry about, but looking like a fool, too.

    30+ Examples of Christian Privilege

    Following is a list of privileges granted to people in the U.S. (and many western nations) for being Christian.

    If you identify as Christian, there’s a good chance you’ve never thought about these things. In response to the ever-increasing “War on Christianity” headlines, I thought it prudent to create this list. Try and be more cognizant of these items and you’ll start to realize how much work we have to do to make the United States a place that is truly safe and accessible for folks of all belief systems.

    1. You can expect to have time off work to celebrate religious holidays.
    2. Music and television programs pertaining to your religion’s holidays are readily accessible.
    3. It is easy to find stores that carry items that enable you to practice your faith and celebrate religious holidays.
    4. You aren’t pressured to celebrate holidays from another faith that may conflict with your religious values.
    5. You can worship freely, without fear of violence or threats.
    6. A bumper sticker supporting your religion won’t likely lead to your car being vandalized.
    7. You can practice your religious customs without being questioned, mocked, or inhibited.
    8. If you are being tried in court, you can assume that the jury of “your peers” will share your faith and not hold that against you in weighing decisions.
    9. When swearing an oath, you will place your hand on a religious scripture pertaining to your faith.
    10. Positive references to your faith are seen dozens of times a day by everyone, regardless of their faith.
    11. Politicians responsible for your governance are probably members of your faith.
    12. Politicians can make decisions citing your faith without being labeled as heretics or extremists.
    13. It is easy for you to find your faith accurately depicted in television, movies, books, and other media.
    14. You can reasonably assume that anyone you encounter will have a decent understanding of your beliefs.
    15. You will not be penalized (socially or otherwise) for not knowing other people’s religious customs.
    16. Your faith is accepted/supported at your workplace.
    17. You can go into any career you want without it being associated with or explained by your faith.
    18. You can travel to any part of the country and know your religion will be accepted, safe, and you will have access to religious spaces to practice your faith.
    19. Your faith can be an aspect of your identity without being a defining aspect (e.g., people won’t think of you as their “Christian” friend)
    20. You can be polite, gentle, or peaceful, and not be considered an “exception” to those practicing your faith.
    21. Fundraising to support congregations of your faith will not be investigated as potentially threatening or terrorist behavior.
    22. Construction of spaces of worship will not likely be halted due to your faith.
    23. You are never asked to speak on behalf of all the members of your faith.
    24. You can go anywhere and assume you will be surrounded by members of your faith.
    25. Without special effort, your children will have a multitude of teachers who share your faith.
    26. Without special effort, your children will have a multitude of friends who share your faith.
    27. It is easily accessible for you or your children to be educated from kindergarten through post-grad at institutions of your faith.
    28. Disclosing your faith to an adoption agency will not likely prevent you from being able to adopt children.
    29. In the event of a divorce, the judge won’t immediately grant custody of your children to your ex because of your faith.
    30. Your faith is taught or offered as a course at most public institutions.
    31. You can complain about your religion being under attack without it being perceived as an attack on another religion.
    32. You can dismiss the idea that identifying with your faith bears certain privileges.

    The right-wing loves to place blame and verbally eviscerate the Islam religion anytime there’s a terrorist attack or other extreme act. However, when extreme Christians commit similar acts, Fox News and the like give it a headline and a snippet of airtime.

    Here are the top 10 terrorists attacks committed by extreme Christian or white supremacy group as provided by AlterNet.

    Wisconsin Sikh Temple Massacre in 2012. Islamophobia fueled this attack, even though the Sikhs are a completely different thing than Islam. The attacker, Wade Michael Page, was a reported white supremacist and was even in neo-Nazi rock bands in his past.

    Fundamentalist Christian killed an abortion doctor. Dr. George Tiller was murdered by anti-abortion terrorist Scott Roeder in 2009. Years prior to Tiller’s murder, anti-abortion terrorists firebombed his clinic in 1986. Tiller was also shot several times in 1993. Ann Coulter said “I don’t really think of it as a murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester.”

    The Knoxville Universal Unitarian Church shooting. Jim David Adkisson walked into the Unitarian church in Knoxville and opened fire during a children’s play. Adkisson killed two people and injured seven. The shooter’s vehement hate of liberals prompted the attack.

    Abortion doctor John Britton was murdered in 1994. Paul Jennings Hill, a member of the radical, fundamentalist Christian group Army of God, killed Britton and his bodyguard in a remorseless, cold-blooded act.

    The Olympics Bombing in Atlanta in 1996. The Olympics were in full swing in Atlanta when Eric Rudolph detonated a bomb at the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. One person died and 111 were injured. Rudolph has committed numerous terrorist acts in the name of God during his life: bombing abortion clinics and a lesbian bar. The Army of God has exalted Rudolph for his actions.

    Abortion doctor Barnett Slepian was murdered by a Christian extremist. In 1998, James Charles Kopp shot and killed Dr. Slepian while at his New York home. Slepian later died of life-threatening injuries. Once again, radical Christian group Army of God labeled another killer as a hero.

    Army of God member bombs a Planned Parenthood building. (The Army of God has connections to lots of people in this lineup, doesn’t it?) In 1994, Army of God member John Salvi bombed the Planned Parenthood building in Brookline, Massachusetts. Before the bombing, he shot and killed two receptionists and injured several more. After Salvi was found dead in his suicide from an apparent suicide in 1996, Army of God celebrated him as a martyr. Sound familiar?

    The suicide attack on the IRS building in Austin, Texas. Though not motivated by Christian radicalism, Joseph Stack flew a plane into the Echelon office in Austin, Texas. Republican politicians like Rep. Peter King thought it a good idea to make jokes and say that the incident wouldn’t have happen if the IRS was dismantled.

    Liberal talk host Alan Berg was murdered. Members of the Order, a white-supremacist group, David Lane and Bruce Pierce killed Berg with an automatic weapon in 1984 near Denver. The two men were given life sentences for the killing of Berg.

    The Oklahoma City Bombing. This attack is the most infamous of all the radical right-wing attacks in recent history. Timothy McVeigh is the epitome of anti-government, right-wing fanaticism. His attack on the Federal Building killed 168 people and injured 600 others. McVeigh, who had a white supremacist background, conducted the largest terrorist attack on American soil before 9/11. He was put to death in 2001.

    Idaho woman arrested for trying to convert Jewish acquaintance to Jesus by beating her


    A woman is facing felony charges after police say she beat, kicked, and stomped on the neck of a Jewish woman in an attempt to convert her to Jesus, KTVB reports.

    Calling it a hate crime, prosecutors have charged Margurite Dawn Haragan, 58, with two counts of malicious harassment for beating the woman identified in court documents as “A.G.”

    Describing Haragan an acquaintance of the victim, authorities said she showed up at the home of A.G. on Feb. 5 and began banging on her window.

    “The defendant was banging on the front window yelling at her that she better believe in Jesus and she was not going to leave until she did believe in Jesus,” Ada County Prosecutor Dave Rothcheck said.

    According to Rothcheck the victim opened her door to tell Haragan to go away and to write down her license plate number, only to have Haragan slap her in the face and drag her to the ground by her hair.

    “The defendant began kicking the victim in the stomach and thigh area,” he said. “During this time the defendant was screaming at the victim that she better accept Jesus or she would not let up.”

    Prosecutors say Haragan then stepped onto A.G.’s neck as she lay on the ground, pressing down with her foot while pulling up on the woman’s head and hair.

    In an effort to stop Haragan, the victim said she would convert and Haragan then reportedly let her go and left.

    According to court documents, Haragan returned to the victim’s home two days later and carved “death bin bond” into her mailbox before cutting up her mail.

    On Thursday Haragan told a judge that she didn’t know what she was being charged with, refused a public defender, and said she didn’t want a lawyer, telling the judge, “I am a sworn-in deputy of Ada County and I also give my oath that what I say is legal and binding.”

    According to authorities, there is no record of Haragan working as a deputy in Ada or any of the other surrounding counties.

    Judge John Hawley appointed a public defender to Haragan, telling her, “These are serious charges and you really do need an attorney to assist you.”

    Haragan faces up to five years in prison for each of the two counts.

    Christian Group In Texas Shows What Hatred Looks Like

    By Chrysler Summer - February 02, 2015

    Sometimes racism can be so ugly and sad to see that you are just speechless. This is almost one of those times.

    In Austin, Texas, last week, the Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islam Relations (CAIR) held a celebration and rally on the state capitol grounds during what was billed as Texas Muslim Capitol Day. The group on hand was largely made up of Muslim students and children, there peacefully celebrating and learning about the political process in the state.

    Basic stuff right?

    Well, that was too much for one group of Christian protesters who felt the Islamic group had no right to be there and was somehow trampling on their American and Christian rights. The anti-Muslim group calls itself the Patriotic Defense Foundation and claimed they were on hand because CAIR was really there to create a climate in which it could “take over America.”

    The group disrupted CAIR’s peaceful rally, which included the kids singing American patriotic songs with such shouts as “No Sharia” and “Go home” while carrying signs that read “Radical Islam is The New Nazi,” “Go Home & Take Obama With You,” and this lovely one, “I serve a risen savior, Jesus Christ. Muhammad is dead.”

    One woman went so far as to grab a microphone away from a Muslim speaker and shout, “I proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ over the capitol of Texas. I stand against Islam and the false prophet.” Protesters then loudly recited the Lord’s Prayer over the Muslim students there trying to carry on their celebration and do their best to ignore these very unkind protestors.

    The Patriotic Defense Foundation posted on their Facebook page their intent to rally against these American Muslims who dared to celebrate their freedom of religion openly. One member wrote this on the page prior to the event:

    We hope to speak to event organizers, attendees, media, locals etc and find out what they are doing and why they continue to infiltrate our country instead of assimilating. We hope to join many there to stand shoulder to shoulder in support of America against islam.

    Infiltrate our country instead of assimilating.” And by that she clearly means give up their religion and become Christian.

    I always find it interesting that people and groups like this behave the way they do and think they are sending a positive message about their own religion. The irony in this situation is that the Muslims there for their celebration were doing a much better job of representing what is right about our values and what we all believe religion should do for people than those ugly protesters who were making it very clear what they had in their hearts was nothing more than hate and ignorance.

    Here is the video of the rally and the protestors so you can see for yourself what hatred looks like.



    These Christians' hatred is so obvious that even a non-Muslim calls it for what it is!!!

    "Never will the Jews nor the Christians be pleased with you (O Muhammad) till you follow their religion..." (Quran 2:120)

    "They desire to harm you severely. Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, but what their breasts conceal is far worse."
    (Quran 3:118)

    White Christian Woman MADE UP holocaust memoir

    Woman who MADE UP entire bestselling holocaust memoir is forced to pay back $22.5 million after her lies are revealed 17 years later... and she's not even Jewish

    By Alex Greig - 12 May 2014

    A woman who invented a wild tale of survival during the holocaust has been ordered to forfeit the $22.5 million judgment she won from her publishers by a Massachusetts court.

    Published in 1997, Misha: A Mémoire of the Holocaust Years is about a Jewish girl from Brussels who walked across Europe by herself after her parents were seized by Nazis.

    Misha Defonseca, 76, and her ghostwriter Vera Lee won $32.4 million from publisher Jane Daniel and Mt Ivy Press in a copyright registration claim in 1998 in which Daniel was found to have conducted 'highly improper representations and activities.'

    Daniel appealed, but in 2005 the Massachusetts Appeals Court upheld the judgment.

    However, during the appeal process, inconsistencies in Defonseca's outlandish tale began to attract the suspicion of Daniel, journalists, forensic genealogists, reports the Courthouse News Service.

    In her memoir, Defonseca wrote that she trekked 1,900 miles across Europe in search of her parents. She spent months living in the forest with a pack of wolves, hiding from Nazis and in one encounter, stabbed a Nazi rapist to death. (rape hoax)

    These events all occurred when she was aged between seven and 11 years old, according to the book.

    Following her trial loss, Daniel set out to determine whether Defonseca's tale was truthful.

    She eventually located a document that included Defonseca's maiden name - which in the book was Levy - and her date and place of birth.

    Her real name, Daniel found, was Monica Ernestine Josephine De Wael, and she was not Jewish.

    During the time she was supposed to have been communing with wolves and killing Nazis, Defonseca was in actual fact enrolled in a Brussels school.

    Defonseca, now living in Massachusetts, has admitted that her best-selling book was an elaborate fantasy she kept repeating, even as the book was translated into 18 languages and made into a feature film in France.

    'This story is mine. It is not actually reality, but my reality, my way of surviving,' Defonseca said in a statement given by her lawyers to The Associated Press.

    'I ask forgiveness to all who felt betrayed. I beg you to put yourself in my place, of a four-year-old girl who was very lost,' the statement said.

    She admitted that her parents were arrested when she was four and she was taken care of by her grandfather and uncle.

    Defonseca said she was poorly treated by her adopted family, called a 'daughter of a traitor' because of her parents' role in the resistance, which she said led her to 'feel Jewish.'

    She said there were moments when she 'found it difficult to differentiate between what was real and what was part of my imagination.'

    Defonseca had been asked to write the book by publisher Jane Daniel in the 1990s, after Daniel heard the writer tell the story in a Massachusetts synagogue.

    Daniel and Defonseca fell out over profits received from the best-selling book, which led to a lawsuit. In 2005, a Boston court ordered Daniel to pay Defonseca and her ghost writer Vera Lee $32.4 million, of which Defonseca received $22.5 million.

    In 2012, the Superior Court found that Defonseca had committed a fraud and set aside the verdict. She appealed and on April 29, Judge Marc Kantrowitz, in what he described as 'the third, and hopefully the last' opinion on the matter, agreed that the truth of Defonseca's story would have made a difference to the jury's deliberations.

    Judge Kantrowitz noted that Defonseca and Daniel had both acted 'highly inappropriately,' and expressed the Court's hope that 'the saga has now come to an end,' reports Mondaq.



    This is what these Christians and feminists do; write fake stories and pass them off as the truth. They lie and cheat (notice the rape hoax in the story) and when they are caught red handed then they start making up other stories (lies) to get out of it, and they want people to not hold them accountable for their frauds.

    Christian Militias Slaughtering African Muslims Because Christianity Is A Religion Of Peace

    There’s this narrative that America can’t quite shake that says Islam is somehow “different” from other religions in the quality and quantity of its violence. It suggests that there is something inherent to Islam that causes people to act like animals and it’s a seductive idea. It’s easy to blame a religion that is a tiny minority in the United States to explain what we see on the nightly news, and it sure does make it easy to agree that bombing the Middle East is the only way to deal with it.

    But Justin!” you say, “Christians don’t behave that way anymore! The Crusades were centuries ago!”

    Oh? Then perhaps a more recent example might suffice?

    On Friday, thousands of Muslims hopped aboard trucks packed with their possessions, protected by soldiers from Chad, and drove out of Bangui, as Christians cheered their departures or tried to loot the trucks as they drove through Christian areas. At least one Muslim man, who fell from a truck, was killed by a mob. Meanwhile, thousands more Muslims huddled at the airport in a crowded hangar, waiting to be evacuated.

    The man who fell off one of the trucks was viciously slain by a mob that cut off his genitals and hands, said Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director for Human Rights Watch.
    Clearly, Christianity is a religion of peace.

    Some will point out that Muslims “started” the violence when they were in power and are now getting what they deserve. Sure, OK. Because when Jesus said “turn the other cheek” what he really meant was “cut off their hands and genitals,” right?

    But let’s pretend that this instance is only because of Muslims. How about the Lord’s Resistance Army which is infamous for giving guns to children and forcing them to fight?

    But that’s not all:

    The LRA abducted large numbers of civilians for training as guerrillas. Most victims were children and young adults. The LRA abducted young girls as sex and labor slaves. Other children, mainly girls, were reported to have been sold, traded, or given as gifts by the LRA to arms dealers in Sudan. While some later escaped or were rescued, the whereabouts of many children remain unknown.

    In particular, the LRA abducted numerous children and, at clandestine bases, terrorized them into virtual slavery as guards, concubines, and soldiers. In addition to being beaten, raped, and forced to march until exhausted, abducted children were forced to participate in the killing of other children who had attempted to escape.
    These are devout Christians slaughtering children and raping little girls in the name of Jesus.

    Right now, this very second, there are Christians frothing at the mouth that I would dare condemn all of Christianity for the acts of a few crazed extremists. These same self-righteous people are completely incapable of explaining why it’s OK to condemn all of Islam under identical circumstances.

    “But those are Africans! You know, those people! We’re the good kind of Christian in America!”

    Oh? We don’t stoop to murder and torture in the name of Jesus in America?

    Bill Moyers begs to differ:

    Sure enough, there it was: the charred corpse of a young black man, tied to a blistered tree in the heart of the Texas Bible Belt. Next to the burned body, young white men can be seen smiling and grinning, seemingly jubilant at their front-row seats in a carnival of death. One of them sent a picture postcard home: “This is the barbeque we had last night. My picture is to the left with a cross over it. Your son, Joe.”
    Before they burned the young man, Jesse Washington, to death over the course of two hours, they cut off his testicles. Now where have I heard that kind of monstrous sadism before? Also, they sold pieces of his body as souvenirs.

    Do you understand? Christians paid money for the pieces of a corpse to celebrate a sick and depraved murder.

    Southern Christians spent decades terrorizing the black population like this in the name of Jesus. As far as they were concerned, it was a sin against God himself to treat blacks like people. They raped, murdered, beat, robbed and, yes, even burned blacks and then went to church on Sunday and praised the lord that they were keeping their way of life intact.

    This was not the distant past. Washington died in 1916, less than a century ago. “Joe,” the cheerful young man bragging to his parents about burning a man to death, has children or grandchildren that are alive today. During the 60’s, anti-black violence spiked all across the South as blacks fought for and won their civil rights. A lot of the people swinging the baton or lynching an uppity black (all in the name of Jesus) are still alive right now. Sure, some of them almost certainly regret it but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. And I guarantee you they thought, at the time, they were doing the Lord’s good work.

    Anyone pretending otherwise is deluding themselves or trying to make you believe that Islam is a “unprecedented” danger to the world. This narrative exists for the sole purpose of justifying an endless war in the Middle East and anywhere else they can find a handful of Muslim extremists to bomb. Why else do you think we hear so much about everything ISIL does but hardly a whisper about what Christian extremists are doing in Africa?

    Think for a few seconds before giving into Anti-Muslim fearmongering. That’s all it takes to see through the bullsh*t.

    America’s 10 worst terror attacks by Christian fundamentalists and far-right extremists

    From Fox News to the Weekly Standard, neoconservatives have tried to paint terrorism as a largely or exclusively Islamic phenomenon. Their message of Islamophobia has been repeated many times since the George W. Bush era: Islam is inherently violent, Christianity is inherently peaceful, and there is no such thing as a Christian terrorist or a white male terrorist. But the facts don’t bear that out. Far-right white male radicals and extreme Christianists are every bit as capable of acts of terrorism as radical Islamists, and to pretend that such terrorists don’t exist does the public a huge disservice. Dzhokhar Anzorovich Tsarnaev and the late Tamerlan Anzorovich Tsarnaev (the Chechen brothers suspected in the Boston Marathon bombing of April 15, 2013) are both considered white and appear to have been motivated in part by radical Islam. And many terrorist attacks in the United States have been carried out by people who were neither Muslims nor dark-skinned.

    When white males of the far right carry out violent attacks, neocons and Republicans typically describe them as lone-wolf extremists rather than people who are part of terrorist networks or well-organized terrorist movements. Yet many of the terrorist attacks in the United States have been carried out by people who had long histories of networking with other terrorists. In fact, most of the terrorist activity occurring in the United States in recent years has not come from Muslims, but from a combination of radical Christianists, white supremacists and far-right militia groups.

    Below are 10 of the worst examples of non-Islamic terrorism that have occurred in the United States in the last 30 years.

    1. Wisconsin Sikh Temple massacre, Aug. 5, 2012. The virulent, neocon-fueled Islamophobia that has plagued post-9/11 America has not only posed a threat to Muslims, it has had deadly consequences for people of other faiths, including Sikhs. Sikhs are not Muslims; the traditional Sikh attire, including their turbans, is different from traditional Sunni, Shiite or Sufi attire. But to a racist, a bearded Sikh looks like a Muslim. Only four days after 9/11, Balbir Singh Sodhi, a Sikh immigrant from India who owned a gas station in Mesa, Arizona, was murdered by Frank Silva Roque, a racist who obviously mistook him for a Muslim.

    But Sodhi’s murder was not the last example of anti-Sikh violence in post-9/11 America. On Aug. 5, 2012, white supremacist Wade Michael Page used a semiautomatic weapon to murder six people during an attack on a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Page’s connection to the white supremacist movement was well-documented: he had been a member of the neo-Nazi rock bands End Empathy and Definite Hate. Attorney General Eric Holder described the attack as “an act of terrorism, an act of hatred.” It was good to see the nation’s top cop acknowledge that terrorist acts can, in fact, involve white males murdering people of color.

    2. The murder of Dr. George Tiller, May 31, 2009. Imagine that a physician had been the victim of an attempted assassination by an Islamic jihadist in 1993, and received numerous death threats from al-Qaeda after that, before being murdered by an al-Qaeda member. Neocons, Fox News and the Christian Right would have had a field day. A physician was the victim of a terrorist killing that day, but neither the terrorist nor the people who inflamed the terrorist were Muslims. Dr. George Tiller, who was shot and killed by anti-abortion terrorist Scott Roeder on May 31, 2009, was a victim of Christian Right terrorism, not al-Qaeda.

    Tiller had a long history of being targeted for violence by Christian Right terrorists. In 1986, his clinic was firebombed. Then, in 1993, Tiller was shot five times by female Christian Right terrorist Shelly Shannon (now serving time in a federal prison) but survived that attack. Given that Tiller had been the victim of an attempted murder and received countless death threats after that, Fox News would have done well to avoid fanning the flames of unrest. Instead, Bill O’Reilly repeatedly referred to him as “Tiller the baby killer.” When Roeder murdered Tiller, O’Reilly condemned the attack but did so in a way that was lukewarm at best.

    Keith Olbermann called O’Reilly out and denounced him as a “facilitator for domestic terrorism” and a “blindly irresponsible man.” And Crazy for God author Frank Schaffer, who was formerly a figure on the Christian Right but has since become critical of that movement, asserted that the Christian Right’s extreme anti-abortion rhetoric “helped create the climate that made this murder likely to happen.” Neocon Ann Coulter, meanwhile, viewed Tiller’s murder as a source of comic relief, telling O’Reilly, “I don’t really like to think of it as a murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester.” The Republican/neocon double standard when it comes to terrorism is obvious. At Fox News and AM neocon talk radio, Islamic terrorism is a source of nonstop fear-mongering, while Christian Right terrorism gets a pass.

    3. Knoxville Unitarian Universalist Church shooting, July 27, 2008. On July 27, 2008, Christian Right sympathizer Jim David Adkisson walked into the Knoxville Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee during a children’s play and began shooting people at random. Two were killed, while seven others were injured but survived. Adkisson said he was motivated by a hatred of liberals, Democrats and gays, and he considered neocon Bernard Goldberg’s book, 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America, his political manifesto. Adkisson (who pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder and is now serving life in prison without parole) was vehemently anti-abortion, but apparently committing an act of terrorism during a children’s play was good ol’ Republican family values. While Adkisson’s act of terrorism was reported on Fox News, it didn’t get the round-the-clock coverage an act of Islamic terrorism would have garnered.

    4. The murder of Dr. John Britton, July 29, 1994. To hear the Christian Right tell it, there is no such thing as Christian terrorism. Tell that to the victims of the Army of God, a loose network of radical Christianists with a long history of terrorist attacks on abortion providers. One Christian Right terrorist with ties to the Army of God was Paul Jennings Hill, who was executed by lethal injection on Sept. 3, 2003 for the murders of abortion doctor John Britton and his bodyguard James Barrett. Hill shot both of them in cold blood and expressed no remorse whatsoever; he insisted he was doing’s God’s work and has been exalted as a martyr by the Army of God.

    5. The Centennial Olympic Park bombing, July 27, 1996. Paul Jennings Hill is hardly the only Christian terrorist who has been praised by the Army of God; that organization has also praised Eric Rudolph, who is serving life without parole for a long list of terrorist attacks committed in the name of Christianity. Rudolph is best known for carrying out the Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta during the 1996 Summer Olympics—a blast that killed spectator Alice Hawthorne and wounded 111 others. Hawthorne wasn’t the only person Rudolph murdered: his bombing of an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama in 1998 caused the death of Robert Sanderson (a Birmingham police officer and part-time security guard) and caused nurse Emily Lyons to lose an eye.

    Rudolph’s other acts of Christian terrorism include bombing the Otherside Lounge (a lesbian bar in Atlanta) in 1997 and an abortion clinic in an Atlanta suburb in 1997. Rudolph was no lone wolf: he was part of a terrorist movement that encouraged his violence. And the Army of God continues to exalt Rudolph as a brave Christian who is doing God’s work.

    6. The murder of Barnett Slepian by James Charles Kopp, Oct. 23, 1998. Like Paul Jennings Hill, Eric Rudolph and Scott Roeder, James Charles Kopp is a radical Christian terrorist who has been exalted as a hero by the Army of God. On Oct. 23, 1998 Kopp fired a single shot into the Amherst, NY home of Barnett Slepian (a doctor who performed abortions), mortally wounding him. Slepian died an hour later. Kopp later claimed he only meant to wound Slepian, not kill him. But Judge Michael D’Amico of Erin County, NY said that the killing was clearly premeditated and sentenced Kopp to 25 years to life. Kopp is a suspect in other anti-abortion terrorist attacks, including the non-fatal shootings of three doctors in Canada, though it appears unlikely that Kopp will be extradited to Canada to face any charges.

    7. Planned Parenthood bombing, Brookline, Massachusetts, 1994. Seldom has the term “Christian terrorist” been used in connection with John C. Salvi on AM talk radio or at Fox News, but it’s a term that easily applies to him. In 1994, the radical anti-abortionist and Army of God member attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic in Brookline, Massachusetts, shooting and killing receptionists Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols and wounding several others. Salvi was found dead in his prison cell in 1996, and his death was ruled a suicide. The Army of God has exalted Salvi as a Christian martyr and described Lowney and Nichols not as victims of domestic terrorism, but as infidels who got what they deserved. The Rev. Donald Spitz, a Christianist and Army of God supporter who is so extreme that even the radical anti-abortion group Operation Rescue disassociated itself from him, has praised Salvi as well.

    8. Suicide attack on IRS building in Austin, Texas, Feb. 18, 2010. When Joseph Stack flew a plane into the Echelon office complex (where an IRS office was located), Fox News’ coverage of the incident was calm and matter-of-fact. Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa seemed to find the attack amusing and joked that it could have been avoided if the federal government had followed his advice and abolished the IRS. Nonetheless, there were two fatalities: Stack and IRS employee Vernon Hunter. Stack left behind a rambling suicide note outlining his reasons for the attack, which included a disdain for the IRS as well as total disgust with health insurance companies and bank bailouts. Some of the most insightful coverage of the incident came from Noam Chomsky, who said that while Stack had some legitimate grievances—millions of Americans shared his outrage over bank bailouts and the practices of health insurance companies—the way he expressed them was absolutely wrong.

    9. The murder of Alan Berg, June 18, 1984. One of the most absurd claims some Republicans have made about white supremacists is that they are liberals and progressives. That claim is especially ludicrous in light of the terrorist killing of liberal Denver-based talk show host Alan Berg, a critic of white supremacists who was killed with an automatic weapon on June 18, 1984. The killing was linked to members of the Order, a white supremacist group that had marked Berg for death. Order members David Lane (a former Ku Klux Klan member who had also been active in the Aryan Nations) and Bruce Pierce were both convicted in federal court on charges of racketeering, conspiracy and violating Berg’s civil rights and given what amounted to life sentences.

    Robert Matthews, who founded the Order, got that name from a fictional group in white supremacist William Luther Pierce’s anti-Semitic 1978 novel, The Turner Diaries—a book Timothy McVeigh was quite fond of. The novel’s fictional account of the destruction of a government building has been described as the inspiration for the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995.

    10. Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City bombing, April 19, 1995. Neocons and Republicans grow angry and uncomfortable whenever Timothy McVeigh is cited as an example of a non-Islamic terrorist. Pointing out that a non-Muslim white male carried out an attack as vicious and deadly as the Oklahoma City bombing doesn’t fit into their narrative that only Muslims and people of color are capable of carrying out terrorist attacks. Neocons will claim that bringing up McVeigh’s name during a discussion of terrorism is a “red herring” that distracts us from fighting radical Islamists, but that downplays the cruel, destructive nature of the attack.

    Prior to the al-Qaeda attacks of 9/11, the Oklahoma City bombing McVeigh orchestrated was the most deadly terrorist attack in U.S. history: 168 people were killed and more than 600 were injured. When McVeigh drove a truck filled with explosives into the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, his goal was to kill as many people as possible. Clearly, McVeigh was not motivated by radical Islam; rather, he was motivated by an extreme hatred for the U.S. government and saw the attack as revenge for the Ruby Ridge incident of 1992 and the Waco Siege in 1993. He had white supremacist leanings as well (when he was in the U.S. Army, McVeigh was reprimanded for wearing a “white power” T-shirt he had bought at a KKK demonstration). McVeigh was executed on June 11, 2001. He should have served life without parole instead, as a living reminder of the type of viciousness the extreme right is capable of.

    Tennessee Lawmaker's Racist Facebook Post

    CAIR Asks Tennessee GOP to Repudiate Lawmaker's Racist Facebook Post

    (WASHINGTON, D.C., 2/25/15) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on Republican Party leaders in Tennessee to repudiate a racist comment posted on Facebook by a state lawmaker.

    CAIR: Rep. Sheila Butt Says We Need an NAAWP

    In a post commenting on CAIR's recent open letter to potential Republican presidential candidates urging them to reject Islamophobia and to reach out to American Muslim voters, Rep. Sheila Butt (R-District 64) wrote: [I]t is time for a Council on Christian Relations and an NAAWP in this Country."

    The reference to "NAAWP" is an apparent racist twist to the name of the African-American civil rights organization, the NAACP, or National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "NAAWP" would therefore mean "National Association for the Advancement of White People." Butt's post has since been deleted.

    CAIR said the name "National Association for the Advancement of White People (NAAWP)" has been used by several white supremacist organizations.

    According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the NAAWP was at one time headed by former Ku Klux Klan member David Duke. SPLC said: "[T]he group's web site defends the American slave system and argues that the white southerners suffered during the Civil War as much as blacks did under slavery."

    "This bit of not-too-subtle racism should be repudiated by Republican Party leaders in Tennessee and nationwide," said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. "The Republic Party must distance itself from those who espouse racist or Islamophobic views."



    When their elected leaders are racist then why wouldn’t their population be also. Hence, the number of attacks on Muslims in these states.

    U.S. Muslims correctly nervous about hate by the Christians

    by John Colson - March 5, 2015

    I just can’t seem to shake my concern that the rising rate of ill-informed, if not outright stupid, anti-Muslim sentiment around the world and in the U.S. is something we should be very worried about.

    I regularly get an email blast from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) with news on such matters as hate mail, screaming of insults and other indications that Neanderthals are stalking anyone who professes a belief in the Quran and all things Islam, and it’s a scary thing, I’ve got to say.

    To paraphrase the late, great Frank Zappa, I’m glad I’m not a Muslim, but there’s a whole lotta times I wish I weren’t a white man raised in the Christian way of doing things.

    That’s because there’s a lot of nutty stuff being handed out in the name of Christianity, enough to freak out even a casual observer.

    I should point out right here that I’m not a religious guy. I generally believe that spirituality is best left to the individual, and that we get ourselves into trouble when we try to make it into an organized thing, whichever organized thing you might have in mind.

    Anyway, these CAIR missives increasingly contain news of behavior so bizarre that I have to wonder if I’ve unknowingly ingested some kind of hallucinogenic drug.

    For instance, the KKK (Ku Klux Klan, look it up if you don’t recognize it) last month was spreading its bigoted, misanthropic message around neighborhoods in the area of Spokane, Washington — to wit, “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake” and that the Klan is specifically targeting Muslims with its nasty spotlight.

    The message came on a sheet of paper contained in a plastic baggie and weighted down with a number of pebbles, presumably to provide ballast for being tossed out the window of a swiftly passing car — drive-by leafleting of hate and bile.

    An image of some bozo dressed in a white sheet and pointy white mask/hat is emblazoned at the top of the sheet, and there was a phone number for fearful neighbors to call to report sightings of crazed Islamists wielding baby carriages, shopping bags or other items that clearly are meant to disguise their evil designs on unsuspecting white Christians.

    More than one neighbor subjected to this campaign of hate, I should add, started gathering up the plastic-bagged papers and tossing them out, prompting some Klan apologist to go to work defending the Klan’s right to disseminate this crap based on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    I seem to recall the National Socialist Party of America (meaning Americans of the Nazi persuasion) using a similar argument in a Jewish-dominated area of Skokie, Illinois, in 1977. The Nazis wanted to dress up in Nazi uniforms and stage a march through a community populated largely by Holocaust survivors, and the community didn’t want it to happen. The Nazis won, based on a free-speech argument, but the march got moved to Chicago, perhaps thanks to the uproar of objections.

    In another recent incident, a group of Christians showed up to protest Oklahoma Muslim Day at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City, where some Muslims had obtained a permit to gather and pray and speak. The “Christians” had no permit and were ushered out of the building after they started screaming epithets, calling Muslims “idiots” and the Quran “a piece of garbage,” among a lot of spicier comments I can’t use here. The ejection, of course, poured gas on the fires of rage among the Christian idiots, and their bigotry became cast in concrete.

    Now, I despise the acts of violence and terrorism being committed around the world in the name of Islam, but I don’t consider the perpetrators to be representative of mainstream Islamic beliefs any more than I believe the KKK (which claims to be a Christian-based brotherhood) or a ragtag bunch of right-wing, gun-toting, so-called Christians should be considered an example of mainstream Christianity.

    They’re all extremists, people who have decided to bundle up their personal insecurities, religious delusions and political grudges into one big, nasty bag of mental puss and use it to bludgeon to death anyone who doesn’t think the way they do.

    They use selected bits of their chosen religious dogma to justify their actions, when in fact their actions have no justification whatsoever, particularly not hidden in the verbiage of their favorite holy scriptures.

    The KKK sludge, which has featured swastikas and Nazi symbology in more than one incident, is especially worrisome.

    Jews, in particular, have every right to get nervous when this kind of thing starts up in their neighborhoods. And now Muslims in America can add themselves to that list of on-edge communities, fearful of the day when the shootings, the burnings, the bombings might start.
