On October 26th, the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) held its 19th annual fundraising banquet at the Marriott Coral Springs Hotel. The group’s featured speaker for the event was United States Representative Ilhan Omar. During her talk, Omar made light of the issue of terrorism. This, while a group gathered outside the hotel, led by this author, rallying against CAIR’s ties to terrorism and Omar’s spread of anti-Semitism.
Congresswoman Omar is a controversial and divisive figure. Since taking office at the beginning of the year, she has used her position to target Israel and the Jewish community. In February 2019, attempting to convince people that Jews actively buy off politicians to support Israel, Omar tweeted, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.” Years prior, she wrote, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
These statements and others like them have gained Omar a number of reprimands from her Congressional colleagues, including a number of people from her own Democratic Party, charging Omar with “anti-Semitism.” She was even called out for her bias by a renowned tennis icon, after she put out a tweet targeting newly announced Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, apparently for his being a Jew.
Omar’s assault on Jews has only been rivaled by her cavalier attitude towards terrorism. This past March, at another CAIR event held in California, Omar infamously described the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States as “some people did something.”
During the Florida CAIR event, Omar, once again, made light of the issue of terrorism by joking about people sharing pictures of her learning to be a terrorist. She stated, “Sure people might share pictures of you, in your adulthood, four years before you were even born, [laughing] learning to be a terrorist.” Indeed, there was an old photo, dated 1978, being circulated of a Somali woman resembling Omar who is handling a rifle at a military training facility, with the claim that it is Omar, herself, at an al-Qaeda camp.
While Omar’s statement may seem funny to some, the joke was made in front of a group – CAIR – that has serious and extensively documented associations to terrorism. CAIR was established, in June 1994, as an important part of a now-defunct umbrella organization led by then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook. CAIR has had a number of representatives convicted in and/or deported from the US for terror-related crimes, and according to the US Justice Department, CAIR has been involved in the financing of Hamas.
CAIR-Florida has not strayed far from its Hamas-founded parent organization. In July 2014, CAIR-Florida co-sponsored a pro-Hamas rally outside the Israeli Consulate in Miami, where attendees repeatedly screamed, “We are Hamas,” “Let’s go Hamas,” and “Hamas kicked your ass.” Following the rally, the event organizer, Sofian Zakkout, wrote in Arabic, “Thank God, every day, we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel!”
Apart from Omar, the CAIR banquet also featured as a speaker CAIR-Florida Executive Director Hassan Shibly. In August 2014, Shibly tweeted that “Israel and its supporters are enemies of God.” In November 2006, Shibly told his university’s publication that Hezbollah was “basically a resistance movement” and “absolutely not a terrorist organization.” This past May, he met at his Tampa CAIR headquarters with convicted Palestinian Islamic Jihad member Hatem Naji Fariz, who according to the Department of Justice, “conspired to commit offenses against the United States.” Shibly, himself, for many years, has been on the US government’s terrorist watch list.
Another CAIR leader appearing at the banquet was CAIR-Florida Communications Director Wilfredo Amr Ruiz. Ruiz, too, has an anti-Semitism problem. In April 2010, Ruiz wrote a piece bashing the Jewish Talmud, using exaggerated and horrifically false libels. In it, Ruiz cites the website,, an anti-Jewish conspiratorial site run by those who claim that Jews perpetrated 9/11. Besides his involvement with CAIR, Ruiz is the legal advisor for the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA), a group that has been condemned by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for promoting white supremacist icon David Duke.
CAIR, its Florida subsidiary, and its leadership represent a violent and incendiary hatred of Israel, Jews and Western values. It is really the perfect venue for Congresswoman Omar to speak at, as both she and CAIR embrace the same bigoted ideology.
As I stated in my speech, at our rally outside the venue for the CAIR banquet, it will be a great day when Ilhan Omar no longer has the chance to defile our nation’s legislature and CAIR no longer exists. Until that time, we must be vigilant and vocal and continue to push back against the jihad being waged in our backyards.

A recent report released by Healthy Babies Bright Futures (HBBF) found that 95 percent of baby foods tested contained at least one heavy metal. The study tested 168 baby foods for four heavy metals that included arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury. One in four foods had detectable levels of all four heavy metals in the same baby food container. Only nine of the 168 baby foods that were tested had no traces of the four metals.1
The study highlights that some baby foods were found to be particularly risky. These foods included those made with rice (cereals) were found to have the most heavy metal contamination especially inorganic arsenic. According to the report, four of seven rice cereals tested contain inorganic arsenic in excess of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) proposed limit of 100 parts per billion (ppb).1
Jane Houlihan MSCE, director of science and health at HBBF and coauthor of the report states that, “For a number of these metals, there’s no known safe level. Any amount that accumulates over time in a baby’s diet can be a concern.”2

The Impact of Heavy Metals on Child Development

Every one of the heavy metals found in baby food are identified as developmental neurotoxins. They have the ability to adversely affect a child’s developing brain and nervous system, both in utero and after birth, and can lead to permanent loss of intellectual capacity and behavioral problems like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).1
ll four metals found in baby food are linked to IQ loss from exposures early in life. The scientific evidence to support this stems from years of research. The HBBF study references at least 23 studies published in the past seven years, which provide evidence for how these four heavy metals can impact a child’s development.1

Chemical Compound in Baby Food Can Cause IQ Loss

The HBBF study also revealed the presence of another neurotoxin in baby food. Although not a heavy metal, the chemical compound perchlorate can affect thyroid function and brain development.2 The study lab tested 25 baby foods at a separate laboratory for perchlorate and detected it in 19 of 25 foods that were tested. All 19 foods with detectable perchlorate also contained various amounts of arsenic, lead, cadmium or mercury, and 12 contained all four heavy metals.2
Perchlorate is known to disrupt thyroid function, which is key to brain development. Exposure to perchlorate has been linked to IQ loss among children born to mothers with thyroid dysfunction who are more vulnerable to perchlorate toxicity.1
Perchiorate has been used as a rocket fuel component since the Cold War. In 2005, FDA approved the use of perchiorate as an antistatic in plastic food packaging and, in 2016, expanded the approval to cover dry food handling equipment. Perchlorate is also a degradation product of hypochlorite, which is used to disinfect food-processing equipment.1

FDA’s Heavy Metal Safety Standards in Baby Food

According to Consumer Reports and HBBF, the FDA has previously proposed heavy metal safety guidelines for manufacturers of baby cereals and fruit juices. However, the FDA has not yet finalized them despite saying that the guidelines would be published by the end of 2018.2
HBBF acknowledges that arsenic levels in baby rice cereal and juice have declined 36 percent and 75 percent respectively during the past 10 years as a result of the FDA’s guidance. However, Consumer Reports senior scientist Michael Hanson, PhD says the government needs to be more proactive and accountable. He states:
This study reinforces the urgent need for the FDA to set a goal of no detectable levels of these heavy metals in baby and children’s food, and to set incremental targets for industry to meet along the way.2
He adds:
More immediately, the FDA should finalize its proposed limit of 100 ppb for inorganic arsenic in infant rice cereal and should lower the limit for lead in juice from 50 ppb to 5 ppb.2
Anne Hulick, a registered nurse and director of Connecticut Clean Water Action said the federal government has not done enough to ensure that heavy metals are completely removed and undetectable in baby food.3 She stated:
Our FDA has failed to set more health protective standards, and this is frightening for parents and for health professionals. It should not be incumbent on parents to be worrying about this [with] all of the things they have to worry about.3

Senator Chuck Schumer Calls on Federal Probe Investigating Toxic Baby Food

A few days after the HBBF report was released, Senator Chuck Schumer (D) called for the FDA to investigate the report and take more action to regulate the baby food industry.4 He said:
The report is very, very troubling. Now, we all know how bad lead can hurt a toddler, but when it’s a little baby it’s even worse.5
He added:
When these toxic metals get into a baby’s nervous system, it can retard brain development, nerve development, the very kind of things we’ve seen [with] lead.5
The FDA responded to the probe in a statement saying the agency will further investigate this matter.5

Heavy Metals in Vaccines

Not only do baby foods contain heavy metals, but some childhood and adult vaccines recommended by the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) contain the heavy metal mercury. In addition, there are 24 vaccines that list aluminum, which is not a heavy metal but is a metal that has no established biological function for humans,6 as a vaccine ingredient.7
The CDC states that for the 2019-2020 season, manufacturers will produce both multi-dose inactivated injectable influenza vaccines containing the mercury preservative thimerosal, as well as single dose influenza vaccines that do not contain thimerosal.8 The live virus nasal spray influenza vaccine does not contain thimerosal and neither do other types of flu vaccines, such as genetically engineered influenza vaccines made using army worm cells.
Although there is emerging evidence that ingestion of metals into the body can have negative effects on health, the CDC and FDA maintain that licensed and recommended vaccines containing mercury and aluminum do not cause neurodevelopmental delays. See the CDC’s list of vaccine excipients for FDA licensed vaccines, including vaccines that contain mercury and aluminum, here.

“In January 2019, West re-affirmed his Christian faith on Twitter. His wife Kim Kardashian described West’s Christian new birth experience in September 2019: “Kanye started this to really heal himself and it was a really personal thing, and it was just friends and family…He has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ.” In October 2019, West said with respect to his past, “When I was trying to serve multiple gods it drove me crazy” in reference to the “god of ego, god of money, god of pride, the god of fame”, and that “I didn’t even know what it meant to be saved” and that now “I love Jesus Christ. I love Christianity”.” 

Kanye West Testimony Lakewood Church Joel Osteen Houston Texas 11/17/19


republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:

Rapper turned gospel artist Kanye West, who referred to himself as “the greatest artist that God has ever created,” spoke to the defense of motivational speaker and author Joel Osteen on Sunday, resulting in a standing ovation from many in attendance at Lakewood and Osteen joking that he had “made it” by having West’s support.

“There’s a lot of people in the Christian community that try to give Joel a hard time because when you turn on the radio, he keeps on showing you how good God is,” West said to much applause, with many standing to their feet. “God is not the enemy. God is not the negative part. God is not just the perception of fire and brimstone.”
“God is love, is the greatest, is the glory,” he continued. “God is family. God is friendship. God is prosperity. … Keep your eye on the beauty and the love and the grace of God. The grace that allows us to be here today with all of our sins. We know that when we accept Jesus as our lord and savior, we will be granted eternal life.”
Osteen nodded.
“That’s so good. I love that. When you’ve got Kanye defending you, you’ve made it, man,” he quipped.
During the 20-minute interview, the two talked about West’s journey and the messages in his new album “Jesus Is King.” West said that he wanted his previous record, “The Life of Pablo,” to be a Christian album but didn’t know how because the gospel had not been shared with him.
“I didn’t know how to totally make a gospel album and the Christians that were around me were too — I would say — beaten into submission by society to not speak up and profess the gospel to me because I was a superstar,” he stated. “But the only superstar is Jesus.”
West said that he felt the devil wanted to keep him in the dark as well.
“Even for someone who’s professing God and saying, ‘This is going to be a gospel album,’ the devil’s going to come and do everything he can to distract people from knowing how to fully be in service to the Lord,” he remarked.
The rapper, who recently started weekly “Sunday Service” gatherings across the country, said that he was brought up in the church, and now being a father, he realizes the “responsibility to be more like my mother … and father.”
“We have our own daughters and we still be rapping about how to hook up with somebody’s daughter. Like, not taking responsibility as a man,” West lamented. “That’s why I say in the song ‘Closed on Sunday’ … [about] protecting your kids from the indoctrination of the media, the thousands and thousands of images that are fed to children by the age of six and seven.”
Osteen soon played a clip from West’s song “God Is,” which says in part, “Every man, every woman, there is freedom from addiction/Jesus, you have my soul … All the idols, let ’em go/All the demons, let ’em know/This is a mission, not a show/This is my eternal soul.”
“You said more in 60 seconds than I say in my 30 minute message,” the megachurch leader remarked.
During the conversation, West acknowledged that he has been known for his pridefulness, but said that the difference now is that “[a]ll of that arrogance and confidence and cockiness that ya’ll see me use before God is now [being used] for Him. Because every time I stand up, I feel that I’m standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying ‘I’m here in service to God and no weapon formed against me shall prosper.'”
“The greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for Him,” he later boasted, referring to himself.
However, West also outlined at one point, “Christians are not going to be Christ. We are going to follow Christ and be Christ-like and repent for our sins.”
“It’s being in constant repentance. A lot of people who don’t want to accept what the Bible says don’t want to accept that they are in the wrong or that they are basking and living and capitalizing on sin,” he said.
Explaining that he wanted the people to know what West stands for, Osteen later remarked that the Christian life is not about “turning over a new leaf,” but “about a personal relationship with Jesus, knowing He died for our sins [and] we repent of those sins and we say, ‘God, I’m going to walk with You.'”
West then closed out his time in prayer, thanking God for the “hundreds of thousands of people that Joel has brought to Christ” and for being able to be at Lakewood without judgment “next to one of the strongest voices in the Christian community.”
Osteen has been a controversial figure among evangelicals as his positive thinking, self-help messages are devoid of preaching on sin, repentance and eternal judgment. His books have included “Your Best Life Now,” “Become a Better You,” “You Can, You Will, ” “It’s Your Time” and “The Power of I Am.”
Osteen’s message on Sunday again touched on God opening doors and opportunities for His people, advising those listening to make positive confessions over themselves, such as “I am enough,” “I am strong enough” and “I am attractive enough.”
From “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” West has been making the rounds after publicly declaring that he has been born again and releasing an album entitled “Jesus Is King.”
Previously known for profane rap hits such as “Homecoming,” “All Falls Down,” “Stronger,” “Jesus Walks” and the blasphemous “I Am a God,” his new record includes the gospel tunes “Follow God,” “God Is,” “Use This Gospel” and “Jesus is Lord.”
West’s weekly “Sunday Service” gathering has featured various speakers from Hillsong New York’s hipster pastor Carl Lentz to Los Angeles-area preacher Adam Tyson, a graduate of John McArthur’s Master’s Seminary. McArthur has expressed concern over Osteen’s lack of teaching on sin and holiness, presenting man-centered messages about God’s blessings and favor.
West had stated during a Sunday Service concert in Jamaica that one of his favorite Scriptures is Mark 1:15, where Jesus said, “Repent and believe the gospel.” West implied during his discussion with Osteen that he does not currently have a home church. Tyson had been reported by some as being West’s pastor, but he had only been flown in to Wyoming — where West currently lives — for Bible study.
As previously reported, West is scheduled to perform at Lakewood at the 7 p.m. young adult service with his choir. Tickets for the free event were reportedly spoken for within hours of being made available, and the 16,000-seat auditorium is expected to be packed to capacity. A report by Hip Hop Overload claiming that Osteen was paying West and his choir $300K to perform was refuted by Lakewood as being false.

10 Reasons You Should Break Up With Joel Osteen


republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
Yes we know, he makes you feel good... and he's sooo nice. But let's be honest: he's not good for you
1. He takes Bible verses completely out of context and changes the meaning of God's Word. A lot of times he only uses half a verse! This is not a mistake, girl-he's doing it on purpose! No real man of God would ever do that. Ever! Anybody can hold up a Bible and wave it around, a real pastor dedicates himself to studying it, and then carefully and faithfully explaining it in context. A phony pastor uses it like a prop and pulls stuff out of it to make it say whatever he wants.
2. He tells you all the things you wanna hear, but they aren't really true. He's appealing to your selfish "felt needs," because he doesn't care enough to tell you the hard truth that would actually help you. He's promising you all sorts of earthly comfort, prosperity and happiness, but those are empty promises-and you know it. He's leading you on!
3. He isn't giving you the really good news-the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You know, the message of repentance and the forgiveness of sins. He should be promising you the one thing a pastor can promise you: the free gift of salvation and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ; but instead he's puffing you up with false dreams of worldly success. You're falling for that? Once he has ignored the true Gospel, he replaces it with the crazy "God wants to bless you, but He can't-you have to do you're part" teaching. Is he talking about the sovereign God who made the whole universe out of nothing, or is this a genie in a bottle who needs us to figure out the secret password??
4. He's getting rich off of you-that's not what pastors are supposed to do! Now, it's true that he's getting rich mostly from his book sales and other income sources (he doesn't need to take a salary from his church anymore), but without the huge audience he gained from his church and it's TV program he never would have become so famous and sold so many books. He is not really helping others to be successful like he claims-unless they all go out and start mega-churches that have TV shows and big-time book publishing deals. He's at the top of the pyramid!
5. He has become so huge in popularity and influence, that people think he represents true Christianity in America. You know that's not right! He teaches a "Word of Faith" version of Christianity that doesn't come from the Bible at all-it actually comes from Kenneth Hagin, who plagiarized E. W. Kenyon, and Kenyon was getting ideas from Phineas P. Quimby-the same guy whose non-Christian metaphysical ideas influenced Christian Science. When Osteen says we can "speak things into existence" he's talking about sorcery-not Christianity!
6. You're falling for all that bling? Really?? A big fancy stadium, a TV Show, best-selling books... that doesn't mean he's telling you the truth! Are you gonna trust someone with your very soul, just because they're rich and famous? Did you know that Joel Osteen only went to college to study radio and television communications-but he never even graduated? But worse than that, he never studied the Bible or theology at any Bible school, college or seminary-ever! He's making it up as he goes! Real pastors are carefully trained in good doctrine-otherwise they end up saying things about God that aren't true, and they lead people away from the true God!
7. He's not gonna be there for you when you need him! He's not a real pastor, he's a millionaire celebrity! A real pastor sits down with you and carefully explains God's Word, week after week after week. This guy is flying around the world, hobnobbing with Oprah and who knows who. A real pastor takes care of his sheep-he doesn't just go onstage and give a little motivational speech once a week. These mega-pastors are completely isolated from the "regular" folks-just like rock stars, big politicians and movie stars.
8. He's setting a bad example of a Christian pastor, and you're setting a bad example by following him. Most unbelievers can see that this guy is kind of a joke (or worse), but way too many gullible Christians are propping him up, and we should know better. Basically, having an unqualified, Bible-twisting, multi-millionaire celebrity described as a "pastor" is a very big embarrassment to the Church. If we are going to be credible followers of Christ, we should have credible pastors; pastors who will "contend earnestly for the faith" and who will "speak the things which are fitting for sound doctrine,” not a guy who scratches people's itching ears and tells them what they want to hear.
9. Admit it-you like being part of something really really BIG! It's one of the oldest tricks in the book: you're with all those like-minded people and you get to say "I'm a part of something really important and exciting!" It's like you're at the Super Bowl or something. It's no accident that these mega-churches have exciting rock bands with light shows and giant video screens-they are manipulating you until you can no longer resist. Get a grip! This guy will never even know you're name-you're just another seat filler. A real church with a real pastor is not like this. You deserve better!
10. Here's a list of shocking things you're not supposed to know; Joel Osteen will NOT mention these Bible verses because he's not a real pastor. Break up with him, and find a real pastor at a real church. You will be so glad to hear the true Gospel of Jesus Christ!

“And I, when I came to you, brothers, I did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.”
— 1 Corinthians 2: 1-2

“But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”
— Galatians 6: 14

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — A jury deciding a civil suit in California has awarded Planned Parenthood over $2 million after finding that pro-life activist David Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress (CMP) caused “substantial harm” by posing as members of a biomedical procurement company and secretly recording their discussions with Planned Parenthood leadership in order to expose the abortion giant’s practices.
Daleiden and his colleague, Sandra Merritt, attended abortion industry conferences from 2013 to 2015 under the names Robert Sarkis and Susan Tennenbaum and with the impression that they were representatives of a company they called BioMax Procurement Services. They recorded their conversations as they sought to learn about Planned Parenthood’s abortion practices and harvesting partnerships.
CMP then publicly released video footage of the undercover investigation, showing various Planned Parenthood leaders and representatives of biomedical companies callously discussing extracting unborn children from the womb so that their body parts can be collected and sold for research.
“We’ve been using them for over 10 years, really a long time, [and we] just kind of renegotiated the contract,” Katherine Sheehan, the medical director for Planned Parenthood Pacific Southwest, said of Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) in one video. “They’re doing the big collections for government-level collections and things like that.”
“I literally have had women come in and they’ll go to the OR and they’re back out in three minutes, and I’m going, ‘What’s going on?’” Parrin Larton of ABR also explained. “Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the [birthing] canal. Whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out.”
“But most of the time, it is not intact,” she added. “The abdomen is always ripped open.. … Everything will just get ripped up, you know. Whenever we have a smooth portion of liver, we think that’s good, because most of the time, just the instruments they go in to pull and it’s just whatever presents first.”
The Senate Judiciary Committee released a report in light of the videos outlining its finding that ABR, StemExpress and Novogenics Laboratories purchased the bodily organs of aborted babies from California Planned Parenthood locations, and then resold them at substantially higher prices.
“[I]n June of 2014, an ABR technician obtained a 20-week-old fetus at a Planned Parenthood clinic, for which it paid $60,” the committee outlined. “From that one fetus, ABR sold its brain to one customer for $325, both of its eyes for $325 each ($650 total) to a second customer, a portion of its liver for $325 to a third customer, its thymus for $325 and another portion of its liver for $325 to a fourth customer, and its lung for $325 to a fifth customer.”
But Planned Parenthood accused Daleiden of initiating a smear campaign to try to harm its organization and soon sued CMP over the matter, alleging fraud, trespass, breach of conduct, and eavesdropping as part of a conspiracy under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
“The defendants’ plan here was not to find crimes, and it was not about journalism. It was about using any means, including illegal means, to destroy Planned Parenthood,” Planned Parenthood attorney Rhonda Trotter asserted during the six-week trial, according to Courthouse News. 
Outlets state that U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick III instructed the jury to find Daleiden guilty of trespass.
“I have already determined that these defendants trespassed at each of these locations. Because I determined that these defendants trespassed, the law assumes that Planned Parenthood has been harmed and is entitled to an award of nominal damages such as one dollar for each trespass,” he advised on Thursday.
Orrick also told jurors that they could not take into account any information that Daleiden discovered during his investigation but only what he knew before launching the undercover project.
“The First Amendment is not a defense to the claims in this case for the jury to consider,” Orrick additionally wrote prior to the trial, according to Courthouse News. “Defendants’ argument that they were citizen journalists was admissible as context for the defendants’ case, not as a legal defense.”
Jurors consequently concluded that Daleiden’s actions constituted the malice and fraud elements required in order to award Planned Parenthood punitive damages, settling on a payment of $870K. Another $470K in compensatory damages was granted for “security upgrades” and screening, and CMP estimates the total damages, when RICO is factored, to be nearly $2.3 million.
Planned Parenthood has expressed satisfaction with the ruling, with attorney Trotter remarking in a statement, “The jury has spoken loud and clear. Those who violate the law in an effort to limit access to reproductive rights and health care will be held accountable.”
However, Daleiden believes the entire lawsuit was simply retaliation for publicly exposing Planned Parenthood’s practices and partnerships, and that Orrick was not just in his judgment. His legal team plans to appeal.
“Justice was not done today in San Francisco. While top Planned Parenthood witnesses spent six weeks testifying under oath that the undercover videos are true and Planned Parenthood sold fetal organs on a quid pro quo basis, a biased judge with close Planned Parenthood ties spent six weeks influencing the jury with pre-determined rulings and suppressing the video evidence, all in order to rubber-stamp Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit attack on the First Amendment,” he said in a statement.
“This lawsuit is payback for David Daleiden exposing Planned Parenthood’s dirty business of buying and selling fetal parts and organs,” also remarked Peter Breen of the Thomas More Society, which is representing Daleiden in court. “Rather than face up to its heinous doings, Planned Parenthood chose to persecute the person who exposed it. I am fully confident that when this case has run its course, justice will prevail, and David will be vindicated.”
The two note that Planned Parenthood admitted during the trial that the video footage accurately represented the conversations and that the organization had been compensated by its business partners for the “specimens.”

Yahya Hendi has made some large claims about the supposed Muslim presence, and influence, in America since the country’s earlist days. This too is a common interfaith theme; it is Obama’s “Islam has always been part of America’s story.”
One aspect Hendi would like to educate attendees on is American Muslims’ contributions to the U.S.
Many people do not know that Islam is a uniquely American experience as well. American Muslims have been part of America since its inception,” he said.
That means the Muslim faith goes back further in the shaping of America than many people realize.
No, there is no “uniquely American” version of Islam. Islam everywhere remains based on the same Qur’an and the same Hadith. Muslims obviously have had a different experience in America than they have had, for example, in France or Sweden, but the Islam taught and practiced in France, Sweden, and America remains the same.
As for the claim that “Muslims have been part of America since its inception,” this claim which is now made so frequently by apologists has no basis in fact. In the last few decades, exaggerated claims have been made for the numbers of slaves in America who were Muslims. First came a claim of 5%, then 15%, then 20%, and now we hear that “30% of the slaves were Muslims.” There is no evidence supplied for any of these figures: they are simply made up out of whole cloth, or plucked from the air. What we do know is that no slave-trader, no slave-owner, and no slaves themselves, appeared to have noticed any Muslims in their midst, as they surely would have had there been any. Or rather, none were mentioned save for a handful – fewer than ten — whose names are endlessly repeated. The three most noted are Omar ibn Said,  Ayuba Suleiman Diallo (Job ben Solomon), and Abdul-Rahman ibn Ibrahim Sori. There is evidence, then, that at most one-hundredth of 1% of the slaves, not 30%, may have been Muslims.
We next find Islam as “part of America since its inception” with the building of the first mosque, in 1929, in Ross, North Dakota, a tiny one-room structure that could fit a dozen people. Then, in 1934, the “mother mosque” in America was built in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. These two mosques do not suggest much of a Muslim presence. There was, however, an Arab Christian presence, an emigration that began in 1880 and continued until 1924 (when the immigration laws were changed), consisting of those who fled the Ottoman-ruled lands, chiefly Syria and Lebanon, to escape Muslim oppression. These immigrants formed such Arab neighborhoods as Little Syria in New York, but these communities had nothing to do with Islam. Nonetheless, one finds Muslim propagandists today suggesting that Christian enclaves such as Little Syria were in fact “Muslim,” in order to backdate and exaggerate the Muslim presence in the United States.
“How many people know that Thomas Jefferson read the Quran?,” he [Yahya Hendi] asked.
No one knows if Jefferson read the Qur’an he bought, as he bought thousands of other books, because he was a curious and learned man. Muslims have made much of his owning a Qur’an, suggesting slyly that he must have read the book and admired it. But the evidence is strong that he did not read it, for he habitually left notes on all his reading, and there is nothing he wrote about the Qur’an. Instead, there is evidence that in his dealings with the North African Muslims, he was horrified by their attitude toward non-Muslims. When he and John Adams were negotiating with the envoy from Tripoli, that envoy informed them that “it was written in the Koran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their [Muslims’] authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.” That was enough for Jefferson, and when he became President, he was determined to go to war against the North African Muslims – the Barbary Pirates — in order to suppress their attacks on Christian shipping. He had no admiration for the Muslims; he understood them to be an enemy of the Christians, as the Tripoli envoy said,and in making war on the Barbary Pirates, Jefferson acted on that understanding.
Hendi said he will share historical data that shows how Muslims have shaped what America has become.
I’m eagerly anticipating that “data” – aren’t you? How have Muslims “shaped what America has become”? What have been their contributions to the philosophy, politics, art, literature, and music of these United States? Since instrumental music is haram in Islam, how could there have been much of a contribution to our music? Since the depiction of living creatures is also haram, severely limiting the possibilities for artistic expression, what Muslim contributions can there have been to American art? What about philosophy? There is no philosophic thought for devout Muslims outside of Islam itself, which they believe, if rightly understood, contains all of wisdom. And politics? Islam and the democratic West have very different views. In Islam the legitimacy of any government depends on whether the ruler follows the will of Allah, as expressed in the Qur’an. A ruler may be despotic, as long as he remains a good Muslim. In the United States, as elsewhere in the advanced West, the legitimacy of any government depends on its reflecting, however imperfectly through elections, the will expressed by the people. There is a big difference.
“So our fellow neighbors will know that American Muslims are not newcomers to America that we have shaped the economy, the politics, the policies of the United States of America for the last 220 years,” he said.
So those dozen-odd Muslim slaves in America – the only ones known to historians – have magically multiplied to become 5-10-30% of all the slaves in America, that is, have gone from being ten or twelve, to being several million. This mendacious multiplication took place in recent years, prompted first by Muslims, on the basis of no evidence whatsoever, and unopposed by those who did not dare to question them, for fear of being labeled “islamophobes.”
For the “last 220 years” – that is, since 1800, Muslims “have shaped the economy, the politics, the policies of the United States of America.” What can Yahya Hendi be thinking? Let’s try to tease out what it might be. As for the economy, there are no records of Muslims owning any property, working in any factories or on any farms (save for the 1-12 Muslim slaves who are known), inventing new devices, or otherwise contributing to, much less having “shaped,” the economy. I suspect that what Hendi means is that “slaves contributed to the economy,” and he claims many of the slaves were Muslim, so Muslims must have “contributed to the economy,” which then resulted in a further ludicrous claim that “Muslims shaped the economy.” Read the history books, and see if there is a scintilla of evidence that more than a handful of Muslim slaves existed in America. How could those dozen Muslims — several of whom returned to West Africa, and at least one converted to Christianity – or the handful of their descendants who remained Muslims (despite being without Qur’ans or mosques) —  conceivably have “shaped the American economy for the past 220 years”?
How could American Muslims have “shaped the politics” of America for the “last 220 years”? Voting? Running for office? What can Hendi be thinking? Between those 10-12 recorded Muslim slaves, and the first one-room mosque that was built in 1929, why do we not hear anything about Muslims in America? Surely it is because there were next to none here until very recently. There have never been Muslims in elective office, state or Federal, until the last few decades; the first Muslim to be elected to the House was Keith Ellison, in 2002. He had no discernible effect on legislative policies. In 2018, two Muslim females, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, were elected to Congress; they have been noisy, and get a lot of media attention for their controversial views, but in the hard slog of legislation they have done nothing, and have had no effect on government policies. Perhaps Hendi has some “data,” as he calls it, about the “real” Muslim population in the 19th century that has till now has been hidden from view, or has uncovered evidence of Muslim industrialists and entrepreneurs (anything is possible) that he has decided to share with his interfaith audience.
As for the future, it is possible that Muslims, as their numbers increase, will indeed help to “shape” policies – concerning, for example, the Arab-Israeli conflict. But Muslims, who were hardly discernible in this country until the 1960s, have not “shaped the economy, the politics, the policies” of America for the past 220 years except in one unforgettable and disastrous way. The Muslims who attacked on 9/11 caused an estimated two trillion dollars in economic damage to this country, and also prompted further spending of another six trillion dollars on misguided wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That is unlikely to be something Yahya Hendi will want to discuss. In that sense only have Muslims “shaped” our country.
It will be fascinating to see how Yahya Hendi supports his fantastical remark, that “for the past 220 years, Muslims have shaped the economy, the politics, the policies of the United States of America.” It can’t be done. Of course, he can always lie. “War is deceit,” said the Perfect Man and Model of Conduct. Who is Yahya Hendi not to take Muhammad at his word?
