Confederate Flag to fly over Martin Luther King’s assassination site. No problem, right?

“Martin Luther King was assassinated in what was the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. Let us say, because we can, that a modern member of the Knight’s Party – previously known as the Ku Klux Klan – bought that land and painstakingly built beautiful marble fountain, complete with the Confederate flag. Should it stand? The Knight’s Party claims it’s message is now one of love, not hate, and the Confederate flag, for many people, is a symbol of historic pride, not oppression. Is it hate speech, or simply bad taste?”

Muslim reform activist Dr. Wafa Sultan: Ground Zero Mosque decisive victory by Islam over the infidels

Will Americans submit to an Islamist Victory at Ground Zero?

In a recent article Barbados Free Press called the 9/11 Mosque to be built at Ground Zero… “A triumphant symbol of Islamist domination and American submission

Most readers agreed with our analysis, while others said we were reading too much into the location and symbolism of the 9/11 Mosque.

Realization & Outrage growing against the 9/11 Mosque

Today one of the world’s foremost Muslim thinkers confirmed what we already thought: the 9/11 Mosque will be viewed by the vast majority of Muslims as a victory over infidels and another step in “Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law.”

Syrian-born human rights activist Dr. Wafa Sultan was named by Time Magazine as one of the Top 100 most influential people in the world. You should read what she says about the 9/11 Ground Zero Mosque…

A Mosque at Ground Zero Equals Victory

by Dr. Wafa Sultan

A new mosque is now being planned in New York near “Ground Zero,” two blocks from where the World Trade Center used to be. This mosque is headed by an Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the Cordoba Initiative, who proposes to convert the now-shuttered Burlington Coat Factory on Park Place into an Islamic Cultural Center which would contain a mosque.

It is crucial to study the supremacist ideology of Islam and to recognize, for example, that the building of a mosque especially at Ground Zero is viewed by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels in Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law…

9/11 Mosque to be built at Ground Zero: A triumphant symbol of Islamist domination and American submission

Will Americans submit?

Recent history has shown that if you draw a picture of Mohammad or otherwise “insult” Islam, you’ll have no shortage of offended Muslims lining up for an opportunity to stab you in the heart, behead you, rape your daughter or burn your house… so you’ll have to forgive my tongue-in-cheek “confusion” that sensitive Muslims everywhere don’t realise how offensive it is to build a huge mosque on the holy ground surrounding what was the World Trade Centre.

The joke is, of course, that the people planning to build the 9/11 Mosque at Ground Zero know exactly how offensive it will be.

That’s the idea. That’s why they want to hold the grand opening on the tenth anniversary of the slaughter of 9/11.

The proponents know that the building won’t be seen by the Islamist fascists as a mere mosque: it will be a victory monument. A symbol of American submission. A vision of the progress of the worldwide Muslim Caliphate that is the Jihadist goal.

It will be something for the fascists to point to throughout the Islamic world when they’re not busy otherwise – say sharpening their knives to mutilate young women or hanging 16 year old girls for having unwed relations.

“What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Center buildings that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack? Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in the eye of America.”

… Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs blog

Time for a little Tolerance Reciprocity by the Muslims

The proponents of the 9/11 Mosque say that allowing its construction will show the tolerance of Americans.

Okay, I’m all for tolerance – so here’s my offer…

If the Muslims want to build a mosque at Ground Zero, no problem. I’ll even donate time and money to make it happen…

…Just as soon as the first Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Buddhist and Mormon places of worship are built in Mecca.

Heroic NYC police women foil Car Bomber in Times Square, New York City – Defused after failed ignition

Police robot at Times Square

UPDATED: May 2, 2010 6:43pm

When we wrote this article the story was still breaking close to the event. Like any developing story new details emerge after the first few hours and they continue to emerge even today.

Since our story was published the following has been reported… Remember… This too will change!

Summary of the news to this time…

– Various reports credit a local street vendor as seeing the smoke first and calling over a patrolling officer. The vendor is a black Vietnam veteran named Lance Orton. Other vendors are mentioned in some other news articles as being either “first” or there as part of a group of vendors who all alerted the police at virtually the same instant. One of the vendors is Duane M. Jackson. Another is Hamid Boubain.

– In any event, one or some of the vendors alerted a Police officer on horseback, Wayne Radigan, who called for the cavalry and started evacuating the area. The two female officers (called “rookies” in some stories) were apparently next to arrive only seconds after Officer Radigan.

– Some reports state that the driver of the vehicle left it running and escaped into an alley where he removed his shirt and exposed another colour of shirt underneath as he ran off. He is described as “white” and there are probably videos of him but who knows how good they will be.

– The SUV was originally said to have been stolen. Reports now say that it was marked for “scrap” at a Texas scrapyard but had scrapped Connecticut license plates on it.

– The explosive device that failed to detonate was comprised of two three propane tanks, two jerry cans of gasoline, some commercial-grade fireworks, two clock timers and a metal box with contents as yet unknown two hundred pounds of fertilizer. (AP: NYPD: Video has possible SUV bomb suspect in alley)

– There seems to be an attempt by some in the media to minimize the seriousness of the event by pointing to the jury-rigged nature of the bomb and the fact that propane tanks were the apparent main power of the device. While we can thank God it didn’t go off and that it wasn’t some huge bomb as Muslim fascists used when they almost took down the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993 – the device could have killed or injured many people on a Saturday night in crowded Times Square. Anyone doubting that should do a little research on “bleve” (boiling liquid expanding vapour explosion) with only a single BBQ propane tank.

Here’s what the Commissioner of Police had to say… “We were lucky it didn’t detonate,” the New York police commissioner, Raymond Kelly, told a press conference. “In my judgment, it would have caused casualties, a significant fireball. I’m told the vehicle would have been cut in half.”

For me, the words “Vehicle would have been cut in half” while parked at the Times Square Marriott as the Saturday night crowds walked by illustrates that this could have or would have caused injuries or deaths.

– The Pakistan Taliban allegedly claimed responsibility on a jihadist website, but this often happens even when a suspicious event is later proven to not have been terrorist related (ie: the huge power shutdown on the eastern USA a while back).

– That’s what we see in the news at this time. No doubt our readers will fill in other pieces or make corrections as the news develops. Some BFP bashers in the comments section seem to take great delight that once BFP posted our story we weren’t on hand to update it with new developments every hour. Hey… if ya want minute by minute news turn on the satellite tv!

Here is our original story as posted shortly after the first reports Saturday night…

Car bomb fails to detonate in New York City’s theater district

Times Square in New York was evacuated on Saturday evening after two female police officers confronted a man who was trying to detonate a car bomb. The man escaped into the Times Square crowds as a flash and smoke were erupted from the rear of a parked Pathfinder SUV – later determined to have been stolen. The police bomb squad eventually used a robot to defuse an explosive device consisting of propane tanks, unknown powder (identified as gunpowder in some news reports), gasoline cans and an attached electronic device with burned wires.

The most recent reports (3am Sunday May 2, 2010) indicate that the wires were somehow connected to the nearby Marriott Hotel. (NY Daily News: Cops stop Times Square car bomb from detonating; Robot finds gun powder, wires in car)

Odds are this was another Muslim Terror attack

Although the authorities aren’t publicly speculating on the motive for the car bomb in the crowded theater district at 45th Street and Broadway on a Saturday evening, you can bet that Muslim fascists are #1 on the list of suspects, and rightly so. Could the suspect have another motivation? Could it be a rogue Catholic priest or misunderstander of Seventh Day Adventism? Attempted suicide terror by a de-frocked Baptist preacher?

Let’s just say that I wouldn’t bet on anything but Muslim fascists. I might be wrong, but I wouldn’t bet against it.

For those who have been sleeping since 9/11, here’s a very partial list of US-based Misunderstanders of the peaceful nature of Islam…

Should Barbados Allow Saudi Arabia To Fund Local Mosques and Islamic Schools?

“What would we on Barbados do if a so-called “Christian” Missionary now started to preach that slavery was ordained by God?

Would we accept them and their ideas into our society? Would we reason with them? Would we show them the errors of their ways, the evil of their beliefs?

Would we allow their textbooks to be used to teach Bajan children?”

UPDATE: June 30, 2010

We’ll be running a few articles in the next few weeks about Islam’s position on slavery, women’s rights and freedom of religion. This article was first published on BFP in 2007 and is worth another look as we take some time to once again consider what the most respected Islamic scholars say about their religion.

Original article first published February 9, 2007…

If A “Christian” Missionary Arrived Today And Said That Slavery Was Ordained By God – What Would Barbados Do?

Missionaries and other folks have been coming to Barbados and trying to convert others to their various faiths since the earliest times. Some have been good people representing mainstream religions and some have been good people representing less popular religions.

We’ve also had our share of bad people – who did evil while professing to represent good. Some came from across the ocean and some were born Bajan. Not all preacher folks who came from abroad were bad, and not all the religious leaders born in Barbados had good in their souls.

We’ve seen some organized religions change their actions and interpretations of their scriptures. We’ve even seen some religions change their holy scriptures to comply with current values and history (which is a different topic for another day).

The Anglican Church Used To Own Slaves On Barbados

God knows the evil that was done in His name on this little island. The money to purchase the lands and the slaves was initially sent from England, and many Barbadian slaves were at one time branded like cattle – burned – with hot irons with the name of the religious organization that owned them. “Society” was the brand applied at the church-owned Coddrington Plantation.

What I Learned From 9/11

“There is an absolute and utter failure of the majority of Muslims to this day to condemn continued acts of violence in the name of Allah and to purge their religion of those who foment such violence.”

9/11 Ten Years on – the Islamist war against everyone else continues

TEN YEARS after September 11th, if you Google the phrase “What I Learned From 9/11” or some variation (What we learned… What America Learned… What Britain Learned…) you will find in excess of one hundred million returns.

This is just one more such article. You might have your own list, but this one is mine. I’ll try to keep it short…

What I Learned From 9/11

1/ Pay Attention To Muslim Jihadists And Believe What They Say About Their Intentions and Motivations.

2/ Accept The Fact That Many Muslims Worldwide – Tens or perhaps even Hundreds of Millions – Approve Of Violent Jihad In The Name of Allah even if they do not carry out such acts themselves.

3/ Accept The Fact That Not Everyone Operates By The Same Rules As You Do – And That Some People Conceal Their True Values and Intentions.

4/ If Placed Into A Bad Situation – Act, Resist, Fight With All Your Strength and Will.

5/ Think For Yourself. Act Independently and Disobey Authorities If Necessary.

What I Learned From 9/11

1/ Pay Attention To Muslim Jihadists And Believe What They Say About Their Intentions and Motivations.

Prior to 9/11, I paid no attention to the Muslim religion except in passing. How could the events of Muslim Jihad and violence in the Middle East, Asia, Europe and America concern a man in Barbados?

Now I pay attention to the Muslim religion. I have read the Koran cover to cover – with study notes. I have listened to what various Muslims say, and I have watched what various Muslims do.

So the Muslim Jihadists certainly have my attention now, and when Muslims speak, I listen very carefully.

The Muslim Jihadists say that they are instructed by the Koran and Allah to establish their religion as supreme authority worldwide, and that the Koran and Allah authorize the use of violence for this purpose. They say that their motivation is religious duty and martyr’s rewards. Continue reading
