Dorrie's Weekend Picks, 6/12-14/09
Pajamas TV: Andrew Klavan and the Bumper-sticker Police!
If you have not yet discovered PJTV, this is a great show to start with.
D.C. Watson: Enough With Blaming Americans, Already
After Barack Obama’s recent speech to the “Muslim world,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder followed up with this statement: "The President's pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. [FROM WHAT?]

A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcement and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all of our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth.” . . .

Do you wonder when Holder & Obama join CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, ISCA, MAS, MSA, MPAC . . .
Muslim Forces NY Harley Davidson Dealer to Take Down Sign
ADAMS, NY – Upstate NY Harley-Davidson dealer Iron Block Harley in Adams was forced to take down a sign facing Route 81 behind their store.

The sign has been displaying messages to drivers traveling on Interstate 81 since 2002. Earlier this week, it read “Obama, are you kidding? We’re not Muslim. You are not Christian!!” a reference to President Obama’s recent speech in the Middle East . . .
Harley-Davidson’s lawyers ordered Dunk to remove the message from his sign or risk losing his Harley-Davidson franchise. They had received one complaint regarding the sign from a Syracuse-area Muslim who told Harley-Davidson that the sign was offensive and derogatory to Muslims. . . .

He’s been ordered to take down the sign or lose his dealership. I hope he doesn’t. Dunk sounds like someone who won’t.
Obama's Zakat Vow Raises Troubling Questions
. . . Obama claimed rules on charitable giving were making it difficult for American Muslims to satisfy the religious obligation of charity known as zakat and he promised to work "with American Muslims to ensure that they can." This simply isn't true.

American law, enacted in 1995 by an executive order by President Clinton and further entrenched by Congress a year later, makes it illegal to provide support to any entity designated as a terrorist group by the U.S. government. The laws do nothing to restrict donations to relief agencies that haven't been so designated. . . .
CAIR Losing Support From North to South
Separate events in Florida and Minnesota could indicate that more people are catching on to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its duplicitous dealings.

In Tampa, Mayor Pam Iorio announced that she was breaking a pattern of designating "CAIR Day" in the city, as she had done since 2005. The decision followed protests from activist Joe Kaufman at Americans Against Hate, but Iorio insisted the decision resulted from her own research.

More significantly, dozens of people in Minneapolis protested outside a CAIR ice cream social for discouraging local Somalis from cooperating with the FBI. The protesters were friends and family of a local teenager believed to have been killed by terrorists in Somalia.

The more the CAIR leaders speaks, the more obvious it becomes that it’s in our best interests to just let them keep on exposing themselves for what they are . . .
Judge Blocks Phone for Suspect in Soldier Shooting
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas judge restricted jail telephone access Thursday for a man accused of killing a soldier outside of an Army recruiting center.

Little Rock District Judge Alice Lightle sent a letter to the Pulaski County jail, saying she heard that Abdulhakim Muhammad gave interviews over a jail telephone in violation of her gag order. Muhammad called The Associated Press twice this week to discuss the shooting death of Pvt. William Andrew Long.

"Since the defendant is in your care and custody, I request that phone privileges for the defendant be suspended with the exception of calls to his legal counsel," Lightle wrote. . . .,0,7388793.story
Ambitious Terrorism Drill Tests NYC's Line of Defense Against Radiological, Nuclear Attack
Agents had intercepted information about a possible terrorist attack in Manhattan, including a diagram showing a mysterious device. The raw intelligence was relayed to experts in Washington, who offered a daunting diagnosis: "You have a problem."

As chilling as that sounded, the situation wasn't real. But authorities say it could be, and what followed over the next two days was an ambitious stress test of the city's line of defense against a radiological or nuclear terrorist attack. . . .
