    I laughed out loud when Rayyan sent Fred to get some Sea Salt.

    SEA SALT

    That’s so white!

    I don’t like what they’ve done to the theme music. They’ve slowed it down…taken the joy out of it. They’ve also brought the devil to Mercy in the form of an Anglican preacher. It’s almost like Little Mosque on Elm Street, let’s have a little Mercy folks.

    Soldiers reported that the gunman shouted “Allahu Akbar!” — an Arabic phrase for “God is great!” — before opening fire Thursday, said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander. He said officials had not confirmed Hasan made the comment.

    I think Rayyan is such a well-rounded character. Although she’s pious and in general a very good Muslim, she’s only human and needs help and a push to do the right thing sometimes… her talk with Amaar in this one is really sweet.

    Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a “spiritual adviser” to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001.

    Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Great Falls, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother’s funeral was held there in May that year.

    The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.

    Hasan’s eyes “lit up” when he mentioned his deep respect for al-Awlaki’s teachings, according to a fellow Muslim officer at the Fort Hood base in Texas, the scene of Thursday’s horrific shooting spree.

    As investigators look at Hasan’s motives and mindset, his attendance at the mosque could be an important piece of the jigsaw. Al-Awlaki moved to Dar al-Hijrah as imam in January, 2001, from the west coast, and three months later the September 11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hamzi and Hani Hanjour began attending his services. A third hijacker attended his services in California.

    Look most Muslims are not bad. We have said this over and over again.

    But too many want to pretend that there aren’t bad Muslims out there but unfortunately that’s not true.

    Here are some very bad Muslims. And they are within America.

    The FBI knew that alleged Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan had communicated with a radical imam nearly a year before the attack but determined the Army psychiatrist was no threat, officials said.

    That kind of reminds me of how before 9-11 the FBI knew of Arab looking people at a Texas flight school learning to fly planes but not seeming that concerned about the whole landing part.

    Political correctness is making us dumb. Dangerously dumb. And because of Political Correctness those people lost their lives over something that could have, and should have easily been prevented.

    where is episode 7???

    Will Tim shut up no one cares about terrorists who pretend they’re Muslims

    What about the people who bomb abortion clinics, or the couple that beat their child to death for reading harrypotter or the KKK!

    They all say they’re doing this for Jesus

  10. Tim

    KKK doesn’t exist anymore. I mean sure you can find few around somewhere but they couldn’t even fill up a room of people.

    You will have to link to the story about the couple that beat their child to death for reading Harry Potter. Haven’t heard of that one though I have heard of several Muslims (in the US and Canada) who have honour killed their daughters. (Not that it doesn’t go on other places than the US and Canada. In fact it is much more frequent in Muslim controlled countries and in some of them it’s not even considered a crime).

  11. Tim

    The FBI knew that alleged Fort Hood shooter Maj. Jim Bob Davis had communicated with a radical white supremacist leader nearly a year before the attack but determined the Army psychiatrist was no threat, officials said.

    Do you think you would ever read that? NO because Jim Bob would have been kicked out of the army so fast it would make his head spin.

    Political Correctness as much as Islam killed those people. Just like Political Correctness was responsible for 9-11 (don’t tell me the FBI would not have taken action if they heard of some Southern speaking white men who were learning how to fly but didn’t care about the landing part).

  12. Tim

    To be fair I don’t mean Islam the religion but all the other cultural/political stuff that has become connected to Islam in some quarters of the Islamic community.

    I really do respect the Islamic RELIGION.
