Muslim Prayer Service at Nat. Cathedral – Gohmert Video

Editor’s Note – In recent days, prior to yesterday’s “inter-faith” Muslim prayer service at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., many Episcopalians and fellow Christians where righteously infuriated that their church would be used for such an event.

Many knew that this would violate their church because under Sharia law, wherever Muslims hold prayer services, the property and structure become a part of Dar al Islam (Land of Islam) forevermore.

Dr. Sebastian Gorka wrote an article in Breitbart about this and other pertinent and little known facts, especially about this event’s timing and Shariah Law concerning prayer services and it was read on the floor of the House of Representatives by Louis Gohmert, R-TX and is in the must see video below.

In addition to what Gorka wrote, and Ric Wells summarized below, this is a tactic used throughout Muslim history.

Two other sites, or locations (of many, many other instances) will forever be infamous for what happened to a Christian holy site – Cordoba, Spain, and Jerusalem, Israel.

Muslims consider both to still be their own, even though Islam is no longer in charge of the Iberian Peninsula.

However, the Great Mosque of Cordoba still stands on the grounds of a Christian Church that was a Temple prior. Therefore, it is a part of Dar al Islam forever.

In Jeruslaem, atop the Temple Mount, Muslims built Al-Aqsa and the Dome of the Rock, known in Arabic as Masjid Qubbat as-Sakhrah, in the Old City.

In 691 AD, the Umayyad caliph Abd al-Malik Marwan ordered its building, 55 years after conquering Jerusalem.

Today it stands as one of Islam’s holiest sites, again atop a former Jewish and/or Christian holy site.

They proclaim it is one of the most holy sites because in Islamic writings that the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven from a mosque in that area during the Night Journey.

But as is true with so much in Islam, this never happened and Muhammed never actually went to Jerusalem, and the timing is all wrong.

You may wish to reference the Calyph’s proclamation mentioned in the article and the video below.

To fundamental Muslims, ‘out-reach’ means come and take our stuff!

Rep Louie Gohmert – Muslim Prayers in Church Mean Much More Than First Appears

By Rick Wells – From GOPthedailydose.com

On Friday, Texas Republican Louie Gohmert read an article by Dr. Sebastian Gorka into the Congressional Record from the floor of the House. The article, which was published on Breitbart.com, was titled “Muslim Brotherhood Overruns National Cathedral in DC” and focuses on the recent “inter-faith” Muslim prayer service held there.

The article points out how it was exactly one hundred years ago that the last emperor of Islam, or Caliph, declared his last jihad against the infidels and it coincidentally marks the first time that the church will be the site of a Muslim prayer service.Washington-National-Cathedral-in-Washington--DCjpg

Symbolism is a very important component of how things are done in the Muslim world.

Gorka points out that as part of World War One, the Caliph declared the “holy war” on the infidels and that it was that declaration which led to the genocide against Christian Armenians and Assyrians.

Rep Gohmert has photos of their crucifixions as a backdrop to his comments.

While noting that the history and the timing may not be known to the Episcopal leaders who agreed to allow the prayer service to take place, Dr. Gorka says it most certainly was known to the Muslim organizers, which included The Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR),

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and the All-Dulles Area Muslims Society (ADAMS).

The supremacist nature of Muslim groups such as Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood is now part of the Congressional Record, as is the fact that they are a modern day extension of the fundamentalist belief in a destiny and a mandate to rule the world under the iron fist of Muslim Sharia law.

Their perverted mission to wipe all other faiths from the Earth is graphically exposed by the horror of the photos behind the Congressman. This is a real and very serious problem. What is happening in Syria and Iraq is a rebirth of this scourge upon our planet.

Americans need to understand that fact and Rep Gohmert did us all a service by presenting Dr. Gorka’s information in the manner in which he did.

Issa submits facts into Congressional Record

By Scott W. Winchell

Be careful what you ask for Mrs. Pelosi, Mr. Dingle, Mr. Cummings, et al – you want a “thorough bipartisan investigation”? America just got one, and now you say it wasn’t? Well check out just how disingenuous the left are. Watch out – bomb fragments are flying.

Look at what Mr. Issa entered into the Congressional Record. No matter how the left tried to change the aim, focus, and discourse, those pesky facts always tear their sails down. They cannot rely on the evidence or the law to support their man, so they attack the prosecutor.

The display we witnessed on the floor of the House yesterday showed exactly how disingenuous the left is. They are not interested in the truth, they only want to paint the prosecutor as conducting a witch hunt.

The trouble is, it appears Holder just may be a ‘witch’. The manner in which they avoided the facts, tried to accuse the other side of lying, and made up things out of whole-cloth only demonstrated what they were up to – obfuscation.

Each accusation was soundly shot down by facts, yet they kept repeating the same tripe, over, and over, and over.

The Democrats were all marching to the same tune, chapter and verse, as distributed by their caucus, not one of them deviated. Then in the end, they walked out, and walked out of seeking the truth over a murder.

Mrs. Pelosi, as the former Speaker-of-the-House, how dare you demean that office so! Mr. Dingle, what were you trying to intimate? How dare you! You never once spoke to the Terry Family.

There must be some really damning stuff yet to be found if they are so willing to put on such an unprofessional display. The White House and Mr. Holder have a lot of explaining to do.

America deserves the truth – the TERRY FAMILY deserves the truth. Mr. Holder – resign now!

Darrell Issa Puts Details of Secret Wiretap Applications in Congressional Record

By Jonathan Strong – Roll Call Staff

In the midst of a fiery floor debate over contempt proceedings for Attorney General Eric Holder, House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) quietly dropped a bombshell letter into the Congressional Record.

The May 24 letter to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), ranking member on the panel, quotes from and describes in detail a secret wiretap application that has become a point of debate in the GOP’s “Fast and Furious” gun-walking probe.

The wiretap applications are under court seal, and releasing such information to the public would ordinarily be illegal. But Issa appears to be protected by the Speech or Debate Clause in the Constitution, which offers immunity for Congressional speech, especially on a chamber’s floor.

According to the letter, the wiretap applications contained a startling amount of detail about the operation, which would have tipped off anyone who read them closely about what tactics were being used.

Holder and Cummings have both maintained that the wiretap applications did not contain such details and that the applications were reviewed narrowly for probable cause, not for whether any investigatory tactics contained followed Justice Department policy.

The wiretap applications were signed by senior DOJ officials in the department’s criminal division, including Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Blanco and another official who is now deceased.

In Fast and Furious, agents for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed assault guns bought by “straw purchasers” to “walk,” which meant ending surveillance on weapons suspected to be en route to Mexican drug cartels.

The tactic, which was intended to allow agents to track criminal networks by finding the guns at crime scenes, was condemned after two guns that were part of the operation were found at U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder scene.

Straw purchasers are individuals who buy guns on behalf of criminals, obscuring who is buying the weapons.

While Issa has since said he has obtained a number of wiretap applications, the letter only refers to one, from March 15, 2010. The full application is not included in what Issa entered into the Congressional Record, and names are obscured in Issa’s letter.

In the application, ATF agents included transcripts from a wiretap intercept from a previous Drug Enforcement Administration investigation that demonstrated the suspects were part of a gun-smuggling ring.

“The wiretap affidavit details that agents were well aware that large sums of money were being used to purchase a large number of firearms, many of which were flowing across the border,” the letter says.

The application included details such as how many guns specific suspects had purchased via straw purchasers and how many of those guns had been recovered in Mexico.

It also described how ATF officials watched guns bought by suspected straw purchasers but then ended their surveillance without interdicting the guns.

In at least one instance, the guns were recovered at a police stop at the U.S.-Mexico border the next day.

The application included financial details for four suspected straw purchasers showing they had purchased $373,000 worth of guns in cash but reported almost no income for the previous year, the letter says.

“Although ATF was aware of these facts, no one was arrested, and ATF failed to even approach the straw purchasers. Upon learning these details through its review of this wiretap affidavit, senior Justice Department officials had a duty to stop this operation. Further, failure to do so was a violation of Justice Department policy,” the letter says.

Holder declined to discuss the contents of the applications at a House Judiciary Committee hearing June 7 but said the applications were narrowly reviewed for whether there was probable cause to obtain a wiretap application.

Thousands of wiretap applications are reviewed each year by the DOJ’s criminal division. The applications are designed to obtain approval, so they tend to focus on the most suspicious information available.

A line attorney first creates a summary of the application, which is then usually reviewed by a deputy to Lanny Breuer, the head of the division, on his behalf. It is then reviewed and approved or denied by a judge.

Cummings has sided with the DOJ in the debate over the secret applications, but the full substance of his argument is unknown.

A June 5 letter from Cummings responding to Issa’s May 24 letter said Issa “omits the critical fact that [redacted].” The entire first section of the letter’s body is likewise blacked out.

“Sadly, it looks like Mr. Issa is continuing his string of desperate and unsubstantiated claims, while hiding key information from the very same documents,” a Democratic committee staffer said. “His actions demonstrate a lack of concern for the facts, as well as a reckless disregard for our nation’s courts and federal prosecutors who are trying to bring criminals to justice. We’re not going to stoop to his level. Obviously, we are going to honor the court’s seal and the prosecutors’ requests. But if Mr. Issa won’t tell you what he is hiding from the wiretaps, you should ask him why.”
