TONIGHT! Pueblo, Colorado. Liberty Action Group April Movie Night: "The Ground Zero Mosque: Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks." Monday, April 16th starting at 6:00 PM America/Denver and ending at 8:45 PM.
Liberty Action Group will host monthly Movie Night on Monday April 16, 2012 at 6PM at the Rawlings Main Library, 100 E. Abriendo Ave. We meet in the Infozone Theatre on the 4th Floor. Liberty Action Group welcomes all who are interested in learning about individual liberty, limited government, free market economics, private property rights, and Constitutional Government. Our meetings and movie nights explore these topics.
The featured movie will be "The Ground Zero Mosque: Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks." From the movie, "this important documentary exposes the insidious Islamic agenda to use a massive mosque, built at Ground Zero, as a base to infiltrate and eventually control America." One only has to look at Europe and Canada to see this happening.
According to one of the movie's producers, Pamela Geller, "everyone who sees this film will come away with a unique look at the unscrupulousness and arrogance of the mosque leaders and their accomplices in the mainstream media and the New York City government - and with an inspiring and informative introduction to those who are fighting back on behalf of freedom, and to the ways in which they counter the lies and distortions of the pro-mosque forces." It was because of the uprising of citizens across America that freedom won out and the mosque has not been built. Our ongoing vigilance will be necessary to make sure it never is built on the site where 3000 were murdered when "jihad came to America." Join us for the movie and discussion to follow.

April 29th: The Jessica Mokdad Human Rights Conference on Honor Killings will be held at the Hyatt Hotel in Dearborn from 5pm to 8pm. Email AmericanFreeedomDefense@aol.com to register. Robert Spencer and I are hosting this historical conference.
Dearborn law enforcement is on the receiving end of a lawsuit alleging a cover up of honor killings. The lawsuit was brought by the Thomas More Law Center. The lawsuit on behalf of Acts 17 Apologetics, Nabeel Qureshi, David Wood, Paul Rezkalla, Negeen Mayel and Joshua Hogg names as defendants the city of Dearborn, Mayor John B. O'Reilly, Police Chief Ronald Haddad and a long list of police officers and Muslim Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Fay Beydoun and Norma Haidous, the special events coordinator for the American Arab chamber. The lawsuit challenges the official cooperation by the city of Dearborn, Mich., which has one of the largest populations of Muslims in the U.S., with Islamic interests: that under the recognized "Shariah" law in the city, there have been "honor killing" murders that have been "covered up."
The misinformation and lack of knowledge of sharia law and honor violence is part of the problem. Law enforcement should be pursuing not just the murderers but the accomplices, as often the entire family is involved. According to Laura Reckart, lead prosecutor in Arizona v. Almaleki, the Noor Almaleki murder trial was the first case in the U.S. where "honor killing" was successfully used to obtain a conviction of a father who murdered his daughter. but prosecutors were disappointed in the conviction of the lesser charge of second-degree murder. The prosecution believed Almaleki should have been convicted of first-degree murder. They had clearly proved premeditation.
We will address honor violence from the legal perspective, sharia law and American courts.
Jessica Mokdad was a 20-year-old Muslim woman in Warren, Michigan, who was brutally murdered in May 2011. Fox News Detroit reported: "Authorities say a Minnesota man killed his 20-year-old stepdaughter in Michigan because she left home and wasn't following Islam." Jessica's stepfather, a devout Muslim, tracked his stepdaughter over four states to murder her for bringing dishonor on her family.
Darwin Jiles, Jessica's close friend, said Jessica lived in abject terror. She feared she would be honor killed by her stepfather. She suffered in her father's household as well, pressured to subjugate herself and live under Islamic law.
Jessica did not want wear the hijab and "did not want to be of the Islamic religion."
