“…Remember Pastor Niemöller from World War II?
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.
Well, here we are. Those days are upon us again, and as few, or fewer, people are paying attention to what is happening as were in those days.
First they came for Pamela Geller, and they did not speak out, because they didn’t like “right-wingers.” Or because they wanted to keep appearing on CNN, or because they didn’t want to offend Islamic supremacists, or because they thought her ads were in poor taste, or because they wanted to keep getting invited to the best parties, or because their Leftist Alinskyite friends would have laughed at them.
So first they came for Pamela Geller, and they did not speak out. What they do not realize, or do not care to acknowledge, is that the jihadists will not stop with Pamela Geller. They will not stop with those who had something to do with showing Muhammad cartoons. They will not stop. It is stand now, or surrender.
“This is a showdown for American freedom,” said Geller. Yes, it is.”

Join us on Monday, March 9, 7 PM.
Chris Byrd will speak on ALAC- American Law for American Courts.
J. Christopher Byrd, Trial Attorney Counsel, Center for Security Policy, Washington, D.C., Texas Counsel, Act for America, MBA/CPA, Former Judge, Former National Bank Examiner, Comptroller of the Currency, U.S. Treasury Dept., Former Risk Manager, Ultramar Diamond Shamrock, Rotarian
Why does Texas need legislation to protect its jurisprudence? J. Christopher Byrd, Esq., our featured speaker, will explain the need for legislation requiring American law for American courts, known as ALAC. Aspects of Sharia have found their way into Texas and other American courtrooms.
As recognition of Sharia and other foreign law is being demanded in courtrooms across the country, nine states have passed constitutionally sound ALAC legislation.
As Counsel for the Center for Public Policy in Washington D.C. and Act for America, Mr. Byrd focuses his efforts on fighting the advance of Sharia in America. Mr. Byrd recently testified in Texas Senate committee hearings against the Muslim Brotherhood in favor of American Laws for American Courts and in an effort to protect Texas from Sharia. He continues this effort with others in Texas to safeguard our constitution and rights of liberty.
Location: West Houston Bible Church, 1450 West Sam Houston Pkwy N, Houston, TX 77043

….Such mistreatment of women isn’t limited to Islamic territories. In England (although some could argue that England itself is now an Islamic territory), news broke last week that thirteen Somali men were convicted of a string of child sex abuse crimes in Bristol, and one of the convicted told the court that sharing girls for sex “was part of Somali culture” and “a religious requirement.” To quote Spencer again, “The savage exploitation of girls and young women is, unfortunately, a cross-cultural phenomenon, but only in Islamic law does it carry divine sanction”:
According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The rape of captive women is also sanctioned in Islamic tradition.
The rape of captive women is the ongoing nightmare currently faced by the thousands of Kurdish and Yazidi women enslaved by the Islamic State. The practice “accords with Islamic law and the parameters of Islamic morality,” as Spencer noted in relation to a female Kuwaiti politician who spoke out in favor of the sexual slavery of non-Muslim women.
Meanwhile, in the Western media, the focus on the oppression of women is reserved for such idiocy as the “unattainable” waistlines on Disney princesses. Now that’s a real war on women.
