U.S. Government Moves to Ban Criticism of Islam
Disregarding the first amendment, the Obama administration is moving on multiple fronts to suppress and even criminalize criticism of Islam notes counter-terrorism expert and former FBI agent, John Guandolo, the host of www.understandingthethreat.com
U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee Bill Killian will host the event “Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society” on where he will discuss how “civil rights” are violated by postings on social networks criticizing Islam. (Ref. http://judicialwatch.org/blog/
2013/05/doj-social-media- posts-trashing-muslims-may- violate-civil-rights/). The event is sponsored by the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee.
“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told . “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are,” said Killian. Muslim culture will also be covered and how Islam is supposedlyno different from other religions.
Similarly, the soon to be released U. S. Military Handbook, Guandolo points out, orders soldiers not to make “derogatory” comments about the Taliban, criticize pedophilia, or speak out for "women's rights." (Ref.http://www.answeringmuslims.
The new Handbook blames “Western ignorance of Afghan culture” for the increase in attacks by Afghan jihadists, instead of focusing on the enemy's stated warfighting doctrine - Shariah (Islamic Law).
Meanwhile, the Obama Administration calls the jihad of U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan's - who murdered 13 soldiers and injured 32 at Fort Hood, Texas - “workplace violence,” despite the fact he was in contact with Al Qaeda leader Anwar al Awlaki, delivered a presentation to fellow officers declaring himself a jihadi, and shouted Allah u Akbar before beginning his jihad.
The failure of our government to even understand the language the enemy is using, much less their extensive networks in the United States and their broad efforts within our society, is catastrophic - but for our government to publicly defend and give aid to our enemies from a position of ignorance is criminal. "Such efforts only serve to endanger Americans," notes Guandolo. "Americans must understand the threat, especially if their government refuses to do so."
Schedule an interview with John Guandolo and allow him to give your audience an understanding of the nature of the Global Islamic threat the West faces—and what must be done to counter it.
