Teddy, now Honey, you’ve disgraced the family yet AGAIN

This just scares the pants off me…

Teddy Kennedy collaborated with the Soviets during the Cold War on several occasions to further his own political career. What is WRONG with the people of Massachusetts that this seditious traitor continues to be reelected??!?!?! Someone who has actively participated in subversion against the standing government that he works for! I say bury him UNDER the jail….

Among its most sensational aspects is a section detailing the domestic opposition to Reagan’s campaign for re-election in 1984 … Specifically, [Dr. Paul] Kengor includes what is purported to be a translated memo from the KGB archives, dated May 14, 1983, that describes an offer made to the KGB on behalf of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) by former Senator John Tunney (D-CA), a fellow Democrat and close friend of Kennedy’s.

According to the document, Sen. Kennedy offered to help the Soviet leadership mount a media public relations campaign in the United States that would do two things. First, it would convince the American people that the Soviets intended peaceful co-existence with us. Second, it would undermine President Reagan’s efforts to deploy the Pershing IIs and build the Strategic Defense Initiative as well as undermining his national security stances and strategy on a broad basis, which in turn would dent Reagan’s campaign to be re-elected in 1984. In short, Sen. Kennedy was offering to work with USSR General Secretary Yuri Andropov against the President of the United States.

[…] Outside the Sebastian article and Kengor’s book, there is independent confirmation that Sen. Kennedy made yet another overture to the Soviets. In 2002, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, chaired by former Sen. Lee Hamilton (D-IN) and which can hardly be regarded as a Republican shill, published Working Paper #40. That paper is online at this link, and contains about a dozen references to Sen. Kennedy. On page 167 it refers to Kennedy’s intent to work with the Soviets to free the hostages in Tehran–in order to bolster Kennedy’s prospects against President Jimmy Carter, against whom Kennedy was running for the Democrat nomination for president in 1980. Kennedy was also hoping to work with the Soviet leadership to keep detente on track, even as Carter was castigating the USSR for its invasion of Afghanistan. Working Paper #40 goes into some detail about Kennedy’s efforts against President Carter’s anti-Soviet policies in 1980. As in the 1983 overture, Kennedy enlisted Tunney to be his agent in Moscow against a sitting US president’s foreign policy. Taken together, it seems that Sen. Kennedy was equally ready to undermine a Democrat or Republican president.

Stuck on Stupid bets “Harry Reid will call him on this.” Hmmph.

[quoting CNS ] At one point after President Reagan left office, Tunney acknowledged that he had played the role of intermediary, not only for Kennedy but for other U.S. senators, Kengor said. Moreover, Tunney told the London Times that he had made 15 separate trips to Moscow.

15 trips?!?!? CNS has more.

Some sites say this is a “shocking revelation”. I say Jack and Robert are spinning in their graves.

The California Mufti

Did you know that California had a mufti? Neither did I. Read on…..

Stephen Schwartz writes a must read on Family Security Matters (h/t Religion of Peace). In “Is California an Islamic Republic?” he writes about a self-proclaimed mufti in California. A radical Muslim, conveniently posing as a moderate Sufi, beginning around 9/11/2001. Even better is how Schwartz outlines, in plain English, just part of the the divergence between moderate and radical Islam. It’s basic, but it’s what every American needs to hear.

Is California an Islamic republic, with sharia courts and a state-recognized mufti? Of course not.

Does Hamza Yusuf Hanson, a poseur living in California, fantasize that such a reality will come about?

Of course. Even in his alleged Sufi incarnation, Hamza Yusuf Hanson propagandizes for the Islamization of America.

Is “Islamic America” a mainstream Muslim principle? Of course not. Moderate Muslims long ago accepted that the West is ruled by non-Muslims, and that Muslims who emigrate to the West have to accept that fact. All religious believers are proud of their faith, and many engage in proselytism. But none except radical Muslims propose a wholesale transformation of Western religious life. Mormons actively seek new members but do not proclaim that some day soon the world, or even America , will be Mormon; nor do Jehovah’s Witnesses, or Christian Scientists. Nor, most important, do Catholics and Protestants, who are the leading communities in America , and who certainly accept converts. Nor do Buddhists, who are widely approached by religious seekers. Born-again Christians do not declare that all Americans must some day join their particular denominations. Jews do not proselytize at all.

It is one thing to argue that one’s religion is the sure path to paradise. It is quite another to argue that one’s faith is the sole basis for good governance on earth, or that its law should soon prevail in a country where it now represents a small, mainly-immigrant minority. Normal Muslims, aside from the ignorant and gullible, consider such views madness.

It is neither a mainstream nor a moderate Muslim position to claim, as Hamza Yusuf’s chief deputy, an individual named Ziad Shakir, did as recently as June 18, 2006, in the pages of The New York Times: “ ‘Every Muslim who is honest would say, I would like to see America become a Muslim country,’ he said.” That means the great majority of Muslims, according to Hanson and his cohort, are dishonest, because they, from Bosnia to Borneo and from Algeria to Zanzibar, accept the non-Muslim religious identity of the West.

Another way to tell is that they are all part of The Big Lie. My education in things Islamic continues….

A dear friend of mine has a male friend who is Muslim. She says that in light of our current environment, over the years they have had many discussions on his religion and her’s as well. He is a kind and spiritual person. And he disagrees with the radical positions that are trumpeted by the MSM. I read somewhere that many moderate Muslims are afraid to speak out against the aberration of radical Islam. Many feel or have actually been threatened. Many moved West to escape the oppression in their native lands. To be able to practice the Islam they know and love (a little “freedom of religion” music swell here) without fear of persecution or reprisal. They are the hope within Islam. And I hope they can rise up and help their radical brothers see how they have bastardized their mutual religion for their own gain. Without them, Islam is lost.
