Follow-up to blog post @RepDonBeyer sponsors H.Res.569 ...

Jay Boo comments frequently on Jihad Watch. This is a response to my comment on Jihad Watch:
I just Googled this [Dar al Hijrah] terror mosque
At the entrance (On the Row Street side ) in Street View option there is a blue campaign poster under a white sign

It reads ” Don Beyer ”,-77.1470223,3a,90y,95.34h,80.7t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sC7cVWgmbpjpKNBmn7xZkbw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
You have to ZOOM IN to see the sign. Isn't promoting a particular candidate grounds for losing tax-exempt status?

Beyer posted an invitation for House colleagues to join him for Friday prayers at the Dar al Hijrah mosque AKA 9/11 Mosque.  The points of contact?
For more information, please contact Kate at  or Adnan at in Congressman Beyer’s office.
We have been thoroughly compromised.

More from @NPR #Islamophilia

Here is a follow-up to the post Non-answer from NPR Ombudsman #Islamophilia:

Thank you for contacting NPR.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your perspective regarding guest Hussam Ayloush of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Guest commentators are not NPR employees, and the views they express are their own.
As a news organization, we strive to examine the varying points of view that reflect and inform the national conversation about important issues. That is also why we encourage you to consider our coverage comprehensively. We, of course, do not expect listeners to agree with every perspective voiced by a guest. However, we do hope that you find the conversation is of value.
Thank you again for your feedback.
NPR Audience & Community Relations
Even worse than NPR is PRI's The World, which is broadcast weekdays at 8 pm on WAMU 88.5.  It was so Islamophilic that I quit listening to it.  I re-captured an hour of my life each weekday!

Don Beyer sponsors H.Res.569 on Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the United States

Don Beyer (D-VA-8) sponsors H.Res.569 on Condemning violence, bigotry, and hateful rhetoric towards Muslims in the U...
It should be no surprise that Gerry Connolly is a signatory.

As Robert Spencer noted on, "Lumping together violence with “hateful rhetoric” is a call to destroy the freedom of speech."  He goes on to say that "bigotry" and "hateful rhetoric" are "identified on the basis of subjective judgments." Further,
This Resolution is using the specter of violence against Muslims to try to quash legitimate research into the motives and goals of those who have vowed to destroy us, which will have the effect of allowing the jihad to advance unimpeded and unopposed.
Don Beyer, Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, and Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN-4) were recently guests at Dar al Hijrah Mosque aka the 9/11 mosque.  So much for the "great experiment on Route 7" (aka the Wahhabi Corridor)!

Non-answer from NPR Ombudsman #Islamophilia

Here is a letter of complaint that I sent to the PBS Ombudsman:
This message concerns the segment Questions Surround Actions Of Calif. Mass Shooting Suspects that broadcast this morning [December 3, 2015], in which Steve Inskeep talked to Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Los Angeles.
Please stop using CAIR as a reliable source. At least 5 CAIR officials have been jailed for supporting terror. CAIR was identified as an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terror-financing trial. The United Arab Emirates has designated CAIR as a terrorist organization.
It astounds me that media accepts CAIR's description of itself as a civil rights group when the truth about CAIR can easily be found on the Internet. Is it laziness, or is it time pressures that prevent journalists from further investigation?
Here's the non-answer that the NPR Ombudsman gave:
Dear ------,
Thank you for contacting my office. CAIR has been investigated in the past and the Dept. of Justice decided against prosecuting the group or its leaders.

December 11, 2015 broadcast of PBS NewsHour

Lately, I've been on a letter-writing spree to MSM outlets concerning their reliance on organizations like CAIR, although I often think that it's an exercise in futility.  Below is a letter that I sent to PBS NewsHour concerning its segment American Muslims feel singled out amid a climate of fear that was broadcast last Friday, December 11.  For Northern Virginiastan readers, it's old news, thanks to Always on Watch's reporting.

I am writing in regards to your segment on backlash against Muslims.  This is the second "Muslims fear backlash" story that I've heard today (the first was on NPR's Morning Edition).  I am sick of the "Muslims fear backlash" stories.  They deflect attention from the true victims of Islamic terror attacks and make Muslims the victims. I note that P.J. Trobia visited Dar Al Hijrah mosque near Washington, DC.  Did you ever look into this mosque?  It has multiple links to terrorism:

* Two of the 9/11 hijackers worshiped at Dar Al Hijrah
* Imam Sheik Shaker Elsayed of Dar al-Hijrah was captured on video advocating armed jihad

* Ahmed Abu Ali, who taught children at the mosque, was sentenced to life for plotting to assassinate former President George W. Bush.

* The late Anwar al-Awlaki was an imam at Dar Al Hijrah Mosque.  He counseled both Nidal Hasan, the jihadist who carried out the Ft. Hood massacre, and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the "underwear Bomber."  You might recall that al-Awlaki was killed in a drone strike in Yemen.

Anwar al-Awlaki counsels Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the "underwear Bomber."
It always astounds me that mainstream media gives credence to organizations like Dar Al Hijrah.  Is it laziness, naivete, or pressure to push out stories?

You don't represent me @GerryConnolly

It is my misfortune that I reside in the 11th Congressional District, Virginia, which is represented by Gerry Connolly. Here is a message that I sent to Mr. Connolly:

You don’t represent me, Mr. Connolly

Dear Rep. Connolly, I read with alarm your Statement on the Syrian Refugee Crisis,

You wrote:
To be clear the SAFE Act is not a moratorium or a pause on the refugee program. It does not harm the vetting process we have in place. It does not demagogue a particular group of people or promote one religious belief over another, as some prominent Republicans have demanded. 

By demagoguing a particular group of people, I take it that you are referring to Muslims. You have been in the pocket of Muslim interests, which are not my interests. Examples:
  • You accepted a $1000 donation from Dr. Esam Omeish. Dr. Omeish has had positions of leadership in Muslim Brotherhood fronts such as the Muslim Students Association and the Muslim American Society. He personally hired the late Anwar al-Awlaki to be the imam of Dar al-Hijrah mosque. (Anwar al-Awlaki, as you might remember, was killed in a drone strike in Yemen. He frequently corresponded with Nidal Malik Hasan before the 2008 Fort Hood massacre. He also had contacts with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “underwear” bomber.)
  • You publicly denounced your constituent who opposed expansion of Islamic Saudi Academy as a “bigot” when you chaired the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. Audio revealed that you mentioned this denunciation while currying favor with Arabs and Muslims. 
  • You accepted money from the Iranian American Political Action Committee (IPAC) to support the Iran nuclear deal, when polls showed that the majority of Americans wanted Congress to reject the deal.
You wrote that the SAFE Act does not “promote one religious belief over another, as some prominent Republicans have demanded.” Christian refugees are more likely to assimilate, and I call upon their co-religionists to mentor them in the US. Do I have to tell you that Islamic State has singled out religious minorities for persecution? Most likely, the UN will tell the U.S. to accept refugees from its camps. Lord Carey, the past Archbishop of Canterbury, noted:
Christians are not to be found in the UN camps, because they have been attacked and targeted by Islamists and driven from them. 

For those reasons, I prefer re-settling Christian refugees and refugees of minority religions.

Dhimmitude In The Virginia Assembly

Our state legislature here in Virginia couldn't manage to come to terms so as to submit a budget. However, the dhimmis did manage to "accomplish" THIS. Excerpt:
[B]y a voice vote the Virginia House of Delegates commended here the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center [aka The Falls Church Mosque] on its “30th anniversary.”
Read the rest HERE. For example:
Last October 22, the Investigative Project on Terrorism’s (IPT) John Rossomando reported here "Dar al-Hijrah Imam Affirms MB Sympathies on Facebook" –“For a guy who claims to have nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood, Imam Shaker Elsayed dedicates a surprising volume of his Facebook page to the Egyptian Islamist group.”
Dar Al-Hijrah has "a dark past" — to say the least. The link at Blue Ridge Forum provides more information. Apparently, few of the Virginia Delegates bothered to consider much of that information even after it was brought to their attention. HERE is the full text of the Virginia Assembly's resolution congratulating Dar Al-Hijrah.  Disgusting

The Shootings At Columbia Mall

Columbia Mall is located in Howard County, Maryland and is an upscale mall.  On Saturday, January 26, 2014, Darion Marcus Aguilar, age 19 and an individual with no known criminal record or other red flags, entered the Zumiez store and starting firing away. By the time the police arrived, he had killed two people and wounded others, then had turned the gun on himself. 

The mall was closed, of course.  More interesting, none of the evacuated shoppers were allowed to drive their vehicles home; school buses and other buses were brought in to take the shoppers home.

Backpacks with primitive IED's were found inside the mall.  In fact, for many hours the police did not approach the shooter's body out of concerns that the body might be booby trapped.  Who is Darion Marcus Aguilar? This photo, supposedly from Blake High School's yearbook, has surfaced:

Contrary to reports, Zumiez is more than a "skate store."  Rrecently, the store's main display has been one of snowboarding, perhaps in advance of the Sochi Olympics. An eyewitness interviewed by CNN the afternoon of the murders stated, "The guy looked either Hispanic or Arab." I heard that interview myself when I was tuned into CNN so as to follow the events at Columbia Mall.  CNN never replayed that interview, but continued to replay multiple times any interviews blaming the gun.  
Over and over again, despite the police statements to the contrary, various news media kept labeling the slayings as "workplace violence" or "a relationship crime."

Was Darion Marcus Aguilar a jihadist?  Maybe, maybe not. 

But it seems to me that the mainstream media were doing all that they could to spin the story into something it appears that it was not, i.e., "a relationship killing."
