There is a new Canadian blogger which just happens to be a Muslim who understands how precious liberty and freedom of speech are to a free society. Bravo!

The name of the site is Muslims Against Sharia. I really like this one post: Canada: Freedom of Speech succumbing to Kangaroo Courts of the Human Rights Commission. (Actually, every post is quite informative, well written, and good.) This is a must listen to recording of the Human Rights Commission in Canada against Ezra Levant. It will blow your mind.

Bravo, Ezra! BTW, would you like to know his crime? He published cartoons of Mohammed in the magazine where he works. His accuser? A Saudi radical idiot.

I will be adding this blog to my sidebar, because I believe this group deserves all the support we can give them. We want them to speak up, so when they do, we must speak up with them. We want them to be successful in their plight to make their voices heard. Thank you, everyone. Have a nice day.

UPDATE: Here is a list of Canadians who have been or are in the process of being silenced: Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, Fouad al-Farhan, Joe Kaufman, Ezra Levant, Mark Steyn, and you. You do not know if you are next, now do you? Hmm…You will find this post here: Islamofascist-Dhimmi Axis Assault on Free Speech: Latest Casualties at Muslims Against Sharia.

BTW, there is a free petition to help Mark Steyn fight back against these jihadi nuts. Please sign it. It is on top of the page, right underneath the title to this site. Thank you.

UPDATE II: It is with a heavy heart that I must report to you that we may have been deceived. I can understand being upset with someone for what they wrote, but if you are truly in support of free speech, you should at least be polite about your disagreement. I’m afraid that is not the case with Muslims Against Sharia. I am very disappointed and saddened and angry. What we need is someone in the Muslim community to stand up so that others may follow suit, but no. How can they when others try to take advantage of the goodwill of people? They deceive people that do not know them so they can intimidate people who do know them. Well, I do not like this. Not one bit.

What happened to make me change my mind? You should read the vulgarity used while leaving comments on other peoples’ sites! It is terrible! My friend, StageLeft (Meet Ezra’s New Non-Muslim “Muslim” Friends! and Quotes from the Scholars at “Muslims Against Sharia”) has gathered quite a few of them for you to read. Please be forewarned, they are vulgar. I could not believe my eyes. I guess mohammed does not care what type of language is used while trying to get your message out. I know for a fact that JESUS DOES CARE.

This group, the Committee to Protect Blogger (CPB), is one of the most useful sites I have come across in my three years of blogging. These people really go to bat for us to protect our free speech, and they warn us and inform us about the people who have been imprisoned in different countries so that we can come together, no matter our political stripes, to try to free these people.

You have absolutely no idea how many people are taken away never to be heard from again until there is in outcry from the international communitees. While these countries, Iran-the ME-China-etc., do this on a continual basis; they do also do not like the negative attention given them. These are countries that actually care what their reputation outside of their respective countries are. It is up to all of us, Liberals and Conservates and everyone in-between, to shame these countries so that we may possibly save some lives. It has been done.

Have you ever noticed that sunlight is the best disinfectant? Yes, it has been and will continue to be. I hope I count on you to spread the word that CPB is back in business, and I also expect you to put this organization on your sidebar. Why? There is no telling when it may be YOU they are after next…

    BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – School field trips provide critical exposure to new experiences and knowledge about the world, and for nearly 30 Afghan school children this was never more true when they recently visited Poland.

    Sponsored by the Polish Minister of Defense, Afghan students ranging from 10-to 16-years-old were chosen to spend two weeks sightseeing in the eastern European country of Poland, said Jacek Matuszak of the Polish Public Information Office. The trip not only opened up the world around them, but also showed them another way of life other than the one they are familiar. They were chosen as the best, most promising students from eastern Afghanistan’s Paktika province by the provincial Minister of Education, Matuszak explained.

    The students were flown to Poland July 26 where they visited communities and cities along the scenic Baltic Sea. “We had the opportunity to take them to either our sea or mountains,” said Matuszak. “But we figured being from Afghanistan they had seen enough mountains.”

    The children were treated on behalf of the Polish government to a variety of child-friendly activities. “They went to museums, zoos, sport events, dances; they did a lot during their stay,” said Matuszak. The kids also interacted with Polish children and played soccer and volleyball together, as well as becoming familiar with billiards and electronic games. During their visit, they were also given the benefit of state-of-the-art medical facilities, Matuszak said. They were all given check-ups and some were given treatments for various illnesses.

    “It was such a fun experience,” said Imran Jabar, a 12-year-old boy from Waza-Khwa Central High School, who has never before left the country. “The sights were amazing, especially the big, beautiful cities. [At a military family social event] I enjoyed the dancing the most, the Polish dance so beautifully, very different from traditional Afghan dances.”

    Yet of all the experiences shown them, perhaps the most valuable was meeting people living in a free country. “What meant the most to us was how friendly the people there were, they were always smiling,” Jabar said. “Living in such freedom is something we dream of here [in Afghanistan]. I can’t wait for our country to someday become just like that.”

    The children’s teachers, who went with them, were very happy to see their student’s horizons widened. “We wish our children to see, first-hand, the progress of other countries,” said Abdul Ghani, Jabar’s teacher. “This trip has opened up their minds to learning more about the world like nothing else could. Several of them have already asked about a continued education in Poland.”

    This is something the government has made possible. In an attempt to renew historic ties with Afghanistan, Afghans coming to Poland are offered a scholarship by the government, explained Polish Maj. Wojciech Kaliszczak, the Public Information officer for the Polish Battle Group stationed in Afghanistan. The two countries have had relations since the 1920s, at that time Polish soldiers came to the rugged Afghan mountains for special training, said Kaliszczak. Later, many Afghans came to Poland for refuge during the Russian occupation 30 years ago.

    “We have always had very good relations with the Afghans and we want nothing more than to offer them opportunities, which will help them rebuild their country, he said.

    This is exactly what the government of Poland had in mind when they arranged this “long range field trip.” “Since we are representatives of the kind of democratic country we are trying to give the Afghans, we want to give them a chance to see what living in such a country is like,” Kaliszczak explained.

    “Who better to show than the generation growing up in a free Afghanistan?” he said. “We gave them what they need the most, a smile and a helping hand.

    The Iranian Threat

    This map links to a different map. I goofed when I added the extra link to make the map larger. Just so you know.
    As I was checking out who was reading my site, I was surprised to find that people from inside Iran are continuing find me. This is not a bad thing, I am just surprised. Anyway, this map is what I found they were looking for so I am providing it for them.

    I have quite a few friends in Iran and outside of Iran who are Iranian. They are very kind and gentle people who are trapped by their government. They could be very prosperous, very welcomed in many countries, and so much more. As it is, there are sanctions against the government. I pray the people understand these sanctions are NOT against them, although they are the ones who will suffer the most.

    Hopefully soon, my friends will be able to walk and talk freely, just as we are able to in our country. They are human, too, after all. As far as the terrorists go, however, I would do anything in my power to help them go meet their allah! Speed it up, guys. 🙂

    Update: Regarding the title, I lost my train of thought. Please forgive me. It happens when I’ve been up all night. lol.

    From VOA News:

    “[You have] [Iranian] President [Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad [has] multiple times [been] talking about wiping Israel off the map. Now they’ve shifted their focus to Bahrain and they want to gobble up Bahrain. Well, I think it’s another indication of how this is a regime that operates completely outside the accepted norms of international behavior.” [Continue reading.]

    Another great article which tells us at length the threat we are facing:

    Iran continued its threats against Bahrain after an editorial in the Iranian news last week claimed that Bahrain was a province of Iran. [Continue reading.]

    This last quote comes from Gateway Pundidt. Great blogger, as usual.

    If Iran is going to keep threatening to confiscate the three islands (which are countries of their own), Bahran and some of the other tiny countries, then who’s to say they won’t pull another ‘Hitler’? Mr. Shaiatmadami is the ‘person’ who wrote the editorial that is one of the focuses of this rancor. (Sorry, I can’t find the link. I’ll keep looking, though.) Well, Iran had to back off this time. Yes, this time…but what about the next time when they have nukes?

    PS: Today is an open trackback day. All I ask in return is return the favor. Thank you, and have a great day.

    The Chinese (and therefore the Tibetans) celebrate the birth of the People’s Liberation Army on August 1. This year, however, there were protests in Tibet to allow the Dalai Lama to be allowed to come back home.

    “Rongyal Adrak is generally a religious and good person, but because he was frustrated at being unable to meet the Dalai Lama…he shouted in the midst of all the people that the Dalai Lama must be invited home,” one source said.

    “[He said,] ‘If we cannot invite the Dalai Lama home, we will not have freedom of religion and happiness in Tibet.’” [Continue reading

    I believe this to be true. The communists, no matter where they are (that means you, too, ACLU), hate any and all things religious. Why? Because if you do not have to depend on the government for your sustinence, then you may even encounter a thought all of your own!

    As the report goes, it started out with only a few people in jail, but now there are over 200 people in jail. Imagine this. What would you do if, in America, they started locking up people for going to Church? The point is to do something and everything you can before we get to that point! If you do not believe this can happen, just pick up a paper. It already has.

    Update: I have two more articles you may be interested in reading.

    As you are having nice day today, please say a prayer for those less fortunate. Thank you.
