Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

I guess if there's any good news here, it's that the left continues to reveal its true collective self. Helen Thomas, this week said that the Jews should get out of Israel. Almost as ridiculous is her solution, which is actually what led to the attempted final solution; Thomas thinks Jews should relocate to Poland, Germany, America, and anywhere else they're compelled to go after surrendering their country to stated enemies.

Listen as Thomas identifies "home" for the Jews as another diaspora. Michele Bachmann has it right at Big Government. Helen Thomas should be fired. Either that or she should audition for the role of wicked witch of the west in the Wizard of OZ remake. That may have been low but it comes nowhere close to what Thomas does in this video.

Andy Soltis at the New York Post is reporting that the Imam responsible for the Mosque scheduled to be built near Ground Zero not only has ties to the Free Gaza Movement - the group responsible for the recent attempt to break an Israeli blockade of Gaza; he is also a prominent member of a group that sponsored the flotilla. A Turkish group with ties to Hamas - IHH - financed the flotilla as well. Making this much worse is that it should be even more obvious to Mayor Michael Bloomberg that Rauf is not at all what he claims to be:

Via the Post:
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a key figure in Malaysian-based Perdana Global Peace Organization, according to its Website.

Perdana is the single biggest donor ($366,000) so far to the Free Gaza Movement, a key organizer of the six-ship flotilla that tried to break Israel's blockade of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip Monday.
Soltis also quotes Deborah Burlingame, sister of one of the pilots killed on 9/11:
"I think it goes to show he is not the man he represents himself to be. We have two Imam Raufs," she said.

"We have the anti-Israel, anti-democratic imam, and we have the smiling, soft-spoken moderate Muslim who says 'Why can't we all get along?'
That leads us to former Muslim terrorist and current Christian, Walid Shoebat, who has been sounding the alarm about Turkey for years and has also translated Rauf's Arabic words into English.

Here is a statement from Shoebat (pictured) about his findings via Special Guests:
Walid Shoebat: Little is known regarding the founder of the Ground Zero Mosque, Faisal Abdul Rauf or his views on Islam. Many view him moderate and others connect him to his father’s affiliation to the Muslim Brotherhood. While others object that this would be guilt by association. For that we searched Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf’s own words – in the Arabic and not what he says in English to the western media.

It should shock every American to find out that Faisal Abdul Rauf stated to the popular Islamic media Hadiyul-Islam ( on May 26, 2010 in an article by Sa’da Abdul Maksoud. In it he states that an Islamic state can be established regardless of the government being a kingdom or democracy. In another article titled “I do not believe in religious dialogue” should alarm the ardent skeptic on the mindset of the Islamic visionary who advocates establishing Islamic lobbies throughout the West.

He also admitted that “[In the West] they have separation of church and state, this of course does not exist in any Muslim country. About 99% refuse to separate religion from state and many call for establishing an Islamic Caliphate.” And regarding religious dialogue Abdul-Rauf stated “this phrase is inaccurate. Religious dialogue as customary understood is a set of events with discussions in large hotels that result in nothing. Religions do not dialogue and dialogue is not present in the attitudes of the followers regardless of being Muslim or Christian. The image of Muslims in the West is complex which needs to be remedied.” And when his view regarding an Islamic state he responded that “throughout my discussions with contemporary Muslim theologians that an Islamic state can be established in more than just in a single form or mold. It can be established through a kingdom or a democracy.

The important issue is to establish the general fundamentals of Shariah that are required to govern. It is known that there are sets of standards that are accepted by [Muslim] scholars to organize the relationships between government and the governed.” When questioned on this, that “the current governments are unjust and do not follow Islamic laws” Abdul Rauf commented “new laws were permitted after the death of Muhammad, so long of course that these laws do not contradict the Quran or the Deeds of Muhammad…so they create institutions that assure no conflicts with Shariah.”
If you're unfamiliar with Shoebat, read his bio at Special Guests. His heritage includes maternal ties to Winston Churchill and paternal ties to Hitler's favorite arab, Hajj Amin al-Husseini.

It would appear that public pressure coupled with Arizona's Governor Jan Brewer putting Texas Gov. Rick Perry to shame in the arena of political courage has the latter revising his public stance on immigration a bit. During an interview with KVUE News in Austin, Perry pulled back from his initial statement back in early May that a bill similar to SB 1070 in Arizona would not be right for his state. Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst took a stance similar to that of Rick Perry at the time as well.

Here are Perry's comments on May 3rd regarding the likelihood of a law similar to the one in Arizona passing in Texas:
I fully recognize and support a state’s right and obligation to protect its citizens, but I have concerns with portions of the law passed in Arizona and believe it would not be the right direction for Texas.
Strikes me as an attempt to dissuade or discourage State Representatives and, by extension, constituents from pushing for it.

Now, fast forward to this KVUE News report exactly one month after Perry made the aforementioned comments. The interview, conducted by Martin Bartlett focuses on both the matter of a projected Texas budget shortfall as well as immigration. The whole thing is worth watching but the money quote from Perry is this one:
“I don't ever take the bait of saying I'm going to sign or not sign a piece of legislation before it's even introduced or debated one time on the house floor. We'll have a good healthy debate. I'm more concerned with getting that border secure, then laying out a very comprehensive immigration policy, if that's required, if Washington continues to abrogate the responsibility of immigration policy in this country.”
Something made him calibrate his words differently (yes, that was an obscure Obama reference).

The interview highlights two very real problems in Texas. The first is budget deficits and spending; the second is immigration. I found it particularly interesting that New Jersey's governor Chris Christie is demonstrating exactly how to deal with the first problem - by going after unions and reckless spending. Brewer in Arizona is confronting immigration head-on in much the same way. Ironically, those two governors are separating themselves from the pack. Perry would do well to take their lead.

I'm still in the process of contacting every State Rep. down in Austin to get their take. Be sure to tune in live or download my weekly radio show for further updates. I'm getting interesting responses. Curiously, many sound just like Perry does.
