This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Don't Slack off Now!!!

The conflict is not yet won; only the nomination contest has been won.  With a few RINOs out of the way, the   path to the general election is clear.  We can not settle down before the idiot box and forget the campaign.  Now is the time to redouble our efforts.

    Get out your check books and canvassing shoes.  Organize, contribute and knock on doors.   This campaign is not over, and certainly not won until the last vote is cast and the last recount litigated and appealed.

    The RINOs are not finished. At least one of them will mount a write in campaign.  Others may also run as spoilers along with Gov. Crist.  Those nominees supported by the Tea Party movement will need continued financial and volunteer support to prevail in the general election.

    If you declare victory and retire--if you do not vote, but depend on someone else to do it, the Democrats will win and waste all our efforts and investment.  Enthusiasm and turnout are as important in the general election as they were in the primaries.  Identify those who agree with you and shepherd them to the polling place.

    When the campaign is finished and the votes are counted,  the next stage of the campaign begins.  We must remain vigilant and active throughout the lame duck session, until the next congress is sworn in.  The lame ducks retain power and can do great damage to our  liberty and prosperity.  They will do great damage unless we impose and maintain great pressure on them.

    Once the new representatives and senators are sworn in, we must ride herd on them to prevent them from succumbing to the siren song of power, the urge to "go along to get along".   We must remind them that they were sent to Washington to drain the swamp and reverse the Socialist agenda, not to become part of it, enrich themselves through graft and cement themselves in power. 

    Only one third of the senate seats are up for election.  Another third will be exposed to the voters in '12,  and the rest in '14.  We can not let up until then because we need a true working majority:

    Cloture requires 60 votes. Overriding a veto requires 67 votes.  In calculating the vote count, we must subtract the  remaining recidivist RINOs from the Republican caucus.  We need enough new genuine Conservative senators to fill in the RINO gap and achieve the required super majorities.

    We must learn from the blunder of 1994 instead of repeating it.  The political pendulum swings, we must continue to pull it our way and push against it when it swings leftward again.  No election is final, there will be another in two years.  Our gains are temporary, not permanent.  We must effectively promote and sell  the values and policies we treasure.



"But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing.  It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government." -- Andrew Jackson, Farewell Address, March 4, 1837   http://freedomkeys.com/vigil.htm


"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active.  The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- John Philpot Curran: Speech upon the Rigght of Election, 1790. (Speeches. Dublin, 1808.) as quoted in the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, NY, 1953, p167 and also in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, Boston, 1968, p479  http://freedomkeys.com/vigil.htm

Hector Aleem Update 08-15-10

The family of Hector Aleem  sent out another update on  the status of his case. Unfortunately, the latest hearing accomplished nothing because his lawyer declined to participate due to lack of funds.

    We don't need to read between the lines to see that the stress is wearing his family's patience very thin.  They are fatigued & frustrated, as anyone  would be in their situation.

    If you are able and willing to contribute to the cause of obtaining justice for Hector,  you can find donation information in their Facebook group.  You may think that cases  such as Hector Aleem's are remote, happening in  Asia, but they will not remain remote unless we stop  Islam's infiltration & subversion of Europe and America.  Unless we act soon, we will be facing the same kind of persecution in our own countries.

Dear Group members
Nothing happened in today's hearing because our lawyer didn't appear on today's hearing
We are more deserving than any other flood victim. They lost their house and everything because of natural disaster but we have lost everything of ours because of nothing. I just hate it. Why people are donating them who wont even appreciate because they consider it KAFIR (infidel) MONEY but we are Christians and waiting for help for two years but nobody came forward. I thank every body who has donated but still we need lots of money because of our lawyer, I asked lots of organisations but nobody agreed I am very sure if we were Muslims all these organisations would have helped us 100 times. people are donating these flood victims in millions but nobody can donate us $5000, we dont have much to eat but still we say that our father should be out we dont need money for anything else but I think people are heartless. We have paid our lawyer $1000 and unlimited to his clerk for filing and papers and to him for the gas of his car this amount makes another $1000 and he doesn't considers it as fee but only expenses for him but he didn't appear in court in today's hearing because he want all money together. Even our own church didn't help us. I get $1,$2 or $5 and sometimes $50 or $100 which is very rare. What can this amount do? A sister is helping us in collecting donations and I know she is having too much trouble even from her own Church and I asked another brother to request people for donation on his group but he refused because he said telling people to collect money will lessen his readers and members, they all will leave the group immediately. People can spend $15 or $20 in buying useless Shane Dawson or Shay Tard shirts or buy farmville or mafia wars cash but they can't help someone who's life is in risk. We are living in this difficult country that we cannot even do jobs. But nobody even arranged any asylum for us.

Qur'an: If You Won't Burn It, Read It

Pastor Terry Jones did the nation a service by bringing  a burning issue to the front burner and let it down by failing to fully exploit the issue.  He should have explained in detail why the Qur'an should be burned and  and exhorted people to read it.  He should especially have exhorted preachers to read the most egregious  ayat from their lecterns to educate their congregations.

    Jones did another great disservice to the nation and the free world by backing down in the face of Islamic threats and governmental condemnation.  Backing down to threats reinforces those who make the threats.  When we back down, the bullys experience triumph and are encouraged by it to  issue more threats in the future.

    There was no need to burn hundreds of Qur'ans and no benefit from it.  Burning one is sufficient for the symbolic act of resistance to Islamic intimidation, infiltration, sedition and conquest.

    Had he burned just one English translation of the Qur'an,  he could have answered the hordes of Muslim protesters with a simple statement that he did not burn their sacred book; Muslims do not consider translations to be  sacred.

    Another Christian activist and  associates gathered near the White House to protest  Islamic violence.  They  crumpled pages torn from a paperback translation of the Qur'an.  The torn pages were selected for their violent, anti-Christian content.  Think Progress reports that Andrew Beacham did the tearing while Randall Terry explained which  verses were selected and why.  In a radio interview with Sean Hannity, Terry urged listeners to read the Qur'an.  Hannity agreed and announced that he would have a special Qur'an reading hour this week,  possibly as soon as Tuesday September 14.

    Randall Terry also gave  the url of his blog, which contains two papers he wrote for one of his courses in a Masters degree program. I did not catch it off the air, but hope I found it with a Google search.  A press release  revealed that two papers were distributed at the protest.  Earth Times published a list of the torn ayat.  9:5-6 are listed, 9:29, 30, 33 & 123 are interesting omissions.


   
    There is one thing more important than incinerating a Qur'an: becoming familiar with  its evil content.   Noel Yatom published a list of 164 violent verses. The Calcutta Qur'an Petition lists some critical ayat which establish the doctrine of jihad: offensive conquest. 

During his early days in Medina, the Prophet apprehended attacks from the Quraish of Meeca.  So he formed the Muslim-Jewish alliance as a defensive measure.  Allah came forward with “revelations” (22.39-41) permitting the Prophet to fight in self-defence, and promising help.  But no attacks came from Mecca so that the Prophet was left free to break his alliance with the Jews and form his own Muslim Ummah.  Allah obliged immediately by converting the permission into a command (2.216; 4.76-77, 84, 8.39, 66- 66).  War against the Pagans now became obligatory on all Muslims.  Muslims were to go out and attack the infidels in regular military formations (4.71; 8.15; 9.123; 61.4). ...Allah had purchased the lives and properties of the Muslims in exchange for dominion in this word and paradise hereafter (2.244-45; 9.111).  Avoiding jihAd became a great sin and violation of the covenant with Allah (2.218; 3.156; 4.74, 77, 95; 9.24, 38-39, 81.84). Becoming a martyr (shahId) became the highest merit for every Muslim (2.154; 3.157, 169-70,195, 198; 22.58; 33.16-17).

    Click those links, print the verses, take them to Sunday school, and ask the teacher to identify them, "what part of the Bible is this from".  Change Allah to God, and you'll have them stumped.  If that does not get you shunned or disfellowshiped,  spring them on the preacher; ask him to read them in church.

    It is not necessary to read the entire Qur'an to discover its true nature nor is there any mystery about it. Allah's commands are contained in clear verses which are the foundation of the book.  If you read Surahs Al-Anfal & At-Taubah, you will have a pretty good understanding of the bottom line.

    The hierarchy of your church probably believes the standard lies, that Islam is a "great religion of peace" and an "equally valid pathway to God".  They probably believe that Islam reveres Jesus as a Prophet, too.  Of course they don't know that Islam denies his paternity, divinity, crucifixion, death & resurrection, depicts him as inferior to Muhammad and a genocidal warlord who will "kill the Jews" when he returns.   What if you prove it to them?  My blog post "The Defamation of Jesus Christ", contains the evidence you need, from the Qur'an, hadith & Tafsir, to show  your church the anti-Christian core of Islam.  Will you do it?  If you won't. who will?

Koran Toilet Paper

Muslim Facebook Boycott Protests 'koran toilet paper' was uttered and published 10/19/'09 in response to a threatened Muslim boycott of Facebook. The Muslims were demanding the deletion of a Facebook group "Koran Toilet Paper Roll".   Posted at Freedom Ain't Free, it has received  532 page views, 9 of them on September 8.  

    I do not know how many page views it has received  on my VOX blog, but recently it has been the most popular post.   That post comes up #9 in the Google SERP.   That post drew 17 of 70 page views to 10 p.m. today.

    Just in case readers are looking for the literal product, I did a search for novelty tp.

  • Just Toilet Paper does not offer Koran tp. They do offer  custom printing.
That search was a bust.  A German man tried to market Qur'an tp four years ago and got arrested, which may have put a damper on the market.

    KTPR was taken down by Facebook, briefly restored, and disappeared.  It has been replaced by two smaller groups  which are less active as well as less popular.
    The group demanding KTPR's deletion is still going, but not extremely active.
    It is fun to joke about using the Qur'an for peri-anal  hygiene but, the practice can have consequences.  Some inks can be irritating and  coated paper can cause paper cuts, which can become infected, resulting in painful boils.  I suggest using the  less expensive paper back editions that ain't printed on  thin coated paper.

    With the preliminaries out of the way, its time to get down to the serious stuff.   The issue is not covered in the Qur'an, so we turn to the hadith.  The fun starts in Sahih Bukhari 1.4.157  with a narration in which the Profit asks his companion to bring him three stones,  but not bone or dung.
   

    Sunan Abu Dawud 1.7   makes the prohibition explicit.

Book 1, Number 0007:
Narrated Salman al-Farsi:

It was said to Salman: Your Prophet teaches you everything, even about excrement. He replied: Yes. He has forbidden us to face the qiblah at the time of easing or urinating, and cleansing with right hand, and cleansing with less than three stones, or cleansing with dung or bone.

Why should Muslims be prohibited from wiping their butts with dried camel dung or old bones?  Why would anyone consider using a piece of crap for that purpose?  But that's beside the point.  Moe has an answer for you.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 1, Number 0039:
Narrated Abdullah ibn Mas'ud:

A deputation of the jinn came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) and said: O Muhammad, forbid your community to cleans themselves with a bone or dung or charcoal, for in them Allah has provided sustenance for us. So the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) forbade them to do so.    

    You thought jinn were mythical, didn't you?  But Moe met with a delegation of jinn who told him that Allah provided bones and dried dung for them to eat. If they eat dried dung, whats the problem?   They could just wait for the crap on the soiled items to dry.

    The Prophet said to use three clean stones.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 1, Number 0041:
Narrated Khuzaymah ibn Thabit:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) was asked about cleansing (after relieving oneself). He said: (One should cleanse oneself) with three stones which should be free from dung.

    But there's more; stones ain't enough, you  should use water, too.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 1, Number 0044:
Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: The following verse was revealed in connection with the people of Quba': "In it are men who love to be purified" (ix.108). He (AbuHurayrah) said: They used to cleanse themselves with water after easing. So the verse was revealed in connection with them.

    Ain't those great suggestions?  But they are more than suggestions, they are law.  Book e of Reliance of the Traveller  contains the rules of ritual purity.   This is not suitable for children or overly sensitive adults.

 e9.0: Going to Lavatory  [Emphasis added to interesting parts.]
e9.1: Recommended Measures
It is recommended when one intends to use the lavatory:
-1- to put something on one's feet, unless there is an excuse (O:such as not having shoes);
-2- to cover the head (O:even if only with a handkerchief or other);
-3- to set aside anything on which there is the mention of Allah Most High. His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace), or any revered name (O:like those of prophets or angels).  If one enters with a ring (O:on which something worthy of respect is written), one closes one's hand around it;
-4- to ready stones (N: or other suitable material (def:e9.5) ) (O:if one uses them) to clean oneself of filth (N:though water alone is sufficient);
-5- to say before entering:
"In the name of Allah. O Allah, I take refuge in You from demons, male and female,"
and after leaving,
"[O Lord,] Your forgiveness: Praise be to Allah who rid me of the hurt and gave me health";
-6- to enter with the left foot first and depart with the right foot first (and this, together with (3) and
-5- above, are not only for indoors, but recommended outdoors as well);
-7- not to raise one's garment until one squats down to the ground (O: to keep one's nakedness covered as much as possible) and to lower it before one stand up;
-8- to put most of one's weight on the left foot while squatting;
-9- not to spend a long time;
-10- not to speak; 
-11- when finished urinating, for men to squeeze the penis with the left hand from base to head (O: recommended because this is where the urethra is, and for women to squeeze their front between thumb and forefinger) (N: so urine does not exit later and nullify one's ablution) pulling lightly three times (O: this being recommended when one thinks the urine has stopped, though if one thinks it has not, this is obligatory);
-12- not to urinate while standing (O: which is offensive) unless there is an excuse (N: such as when standing is less likely to spatter urine on one's clothes than sitting, or when sitting is a hardship);
-13- not to clean oneself with water in the same place one relieved oneself, if it might spatter, though if in a lavatory one need not move to a different place;
-14- to distance oneself from others if outdoors and to screen oneself;
-15- not to urinate into holes, on hard places, where there is wind, in waterways, where people gather to talk, on paths, under fruit trees, near graves, in still water, or in less than 216 liters of running water;
-16- and not to relieve oneself with one's front or rear facing the sun, moon, or the Sacred Precinct in Jerusalem.
e9.2: Prohibitions
It is unlawful to urinate on anything edible, bones, anything deserving respect, a grave or in a mosque, even if into a receptacle.
e9.3
It is unlawful to urinate or defecate with one's front or rear towards the direction of prayer when outdoors and there is no barrier to screen one, though this is permissible when one is indoors within a meter and a half of a barrier at least 32 cm. high, or in a hole that deep. When one is not this close to such a barrier at least 32 cm. high, or in a hole that deep. When one is not this close to such a barrier, it is not permissible except in a lavatory, where, if the walls are farther from one than the maximal distance or are shorter than the minimal height, relieving oneself with front or rear towards the direction of prayer is permissible, though offensive.  
e9.4: The Obligation of Cleaning Oneself of Filth
It is obligatory to clean oneself of every impure substance coming from one's front or rear, though not from gas, dry worms or stones, or excrement without moisture.
e9.5: Use of dry substances or water
Stones suffice to clean oneself, though it is best to follow this by washing with water. Anything can take the place of stones that is a solid, pure, removes the filth, is not something that deserves respect or is worthy of veneration, nor something that is edible (O: these being five conditions for the validity of using stones (N: or something else) to clean oneself of filth without having to follow it by washing with water).
But it is obligatory to wash oneself with water if:
-1- one has washed away the filth with a liquid other than water, or with something impure;
-2- one has become soiled with filth from a separate source;
-3- one's waste has moved from where it exited (n: reaching another part of one's person) or has dried;
-4- or if feces spread beyond the inner buttocks (N: meaning that which is enfolded when standing), or urine moved beyond the head of the penis, though if they do not pass beyond them, stones suffice.
e9.5: How to clean oneself
It is obligatory (N: when cleaning oneself with a dry substance alone) to both remove the filth, and to wipe three times, even when once is enough to clean it, doing this either with three pieces (lit. "stones") or three sides of one piece. If three times does not remove it, it is obligatory to (N: repeat it enough to) clean it away (O: as that is the point of cleaning oneself. Nawawi says in al-Majmu' that cleaning oneself (N: with a dry substance) means to remove the filth so that nothing remains but a trace that could not be removed unless one were to use water) (N: and when this has been done, any remaining effects of filth that could have been done, any remaining effects of filth that could have only been removed with water are excusable).  An odd number of strokes is recommended. One should wipe from front to back on the right side with the first piece, similarly wipe the left with the second, and wipe both sides and the anus with the third. Each stroke must begin at a point on the skin that is free of impurity.
It is offensive to use the right hand to the oneself of filth.
e9.6: Cleaning before or after ablution
It is best to clean oneself of filth before ablution, though if one waits until after it to clean, the ablution is nevertheless valid(N: provided that while cleaning, the inside surface of the hand (def: e7.4 does not touch the front or rear private parts).
If one waits until after one's dry ablution (tayammum, def:e12) to clean away filth, the dry ablution is not valid (A: because lack of filth is a condition for it).


    E9.1-3 instructs Muslims not to carry the Qur'an into the lavatory. E9.5 is explicit: you must not use any object that deserves respect or veneration.  Since they do not consider translations to be sacred,  for maximum  offense (if that is the intention) you should desecrate an Arabic Qur'an.  The problem with toilet paper is that it could  be made from recycled Qur'ans.

    The right hand prohibition has a cultural connection. Seventh century Arabs did not use eating utensils, they  grabbed food out of common pots with their right hands. Amputating the right hand of a thief forces him to use his left hand for everything, which could introduces feces into the common pot.   Perhaps that is why Risala (Maliki Fiqh) gives this instruction.

4.1e The place is rubbed with the hand while the water is being poured until it is cleaned of noxiousness. It is enough that he thinks it probable if he is able to do that. If he is not able to do it because his hand is cut off or short, he delegates someone who is able to touch that place, be it wife or slavegirl.
