    Senator Ted Lieu
    Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee
    State Capitol, Room 4090
    Sacramento, CA 95814

    Dear Senator Lieu,

    As Executive Director of The American Patriot Alliance, let me respond to your recent extortionist letter to Robert Niblock, CEO of Lowe’s, with regards to their decision to withdraw advertising from TLC’s hugely false premise and propagandist “unreality” show ‘American Muslim.’ You sir, are absolutely delusional to believe any of the details outlined in support of your letter.
    First, Lowe’s has every RIGHT to decide with whom and where to commit their advertising efforts without fear of extortion or threats of legislative action on the part of a sitting state senator. Secondly, I personally, and as head of The American Patriot Alliance, applaud their decision, as do the majority of intelligent, realistic and Patriotic Americans who, refusing to watch such an obviously futile attempt to soft the image of Muslims living in America, have driven the RATINGS and marketability of the program to a desperate low for Discovery/TLC.
    Secondly, in your letter you state that Lowe’s decision was based upon, and I quote…

    “…complaints from the Florida Family Association that “All-American Muslim is propaganda that riskily hides the Islamic agenda’s clear and present danger to American liberties and traditional values.” Lowe’s action is bigoted, shameful, and un-American. I call on Lowe’s to rescind its action and apologize to Americans who are Muslim.”

    I would point out to you Mr. Lieu that your reasoning, examples and intelligence on this matter are flawed, to say the least. The Muslim communities in America have NO intention whatsoever of assimilating into a Nation founded as a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC (NOT an Islamic theocracy governed by the writings of a pedophiliac, murderous, false-God-worshiping prophet, and continuously try, through organizations such as The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as elements of Hamas and Hezbollah, to destroy the fabric of American society. Let me remind you Senator, it was CAIR that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation TERROR trials, the LARGEST in American history. Let me REMIND YOU it was Nidel Hasan, a MUSLIM, who murdered 13 U.S troops at Fort Hood; it was Richard Colvin Reid, also known as the Shoe Bomber, a MUSLIM and self-admitted member of al-Qaeda, who attempted to blow up American Airlines Flight 63 en route to Miami; it was ANOTHER MUSLIM, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab (also known as Umar Abdul Mutallab and Omar Farooq al-Nigeri), and more POPULARLY referred to as the “UNDERWEAR BOMBER”, who attempted to detonate plastic explosives hidden in his underwear while on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253, en route to Detroit, Michigan, on December 25, 2009; it was yet ANOTHER MUSLIM, Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani-born U.S. citizen, who tried to set off a car bomb in New York’s busy Times Square on May 1, 2010; and I am sure we can’t forgot Abdulhakim Muhammad, a MUSLIM, who opened fire on a Army Recruiting Station in Little Rock, Arkansas; Jose Pimentel, a Muslim convert manufacturing pipe bombs intended for post offices and police stations, and of course, the Marine Barracks, Beirut; USS Cole; Frankfurt Airport; London Subway; World Trade Center Garage; The World Trade Centers… do I REALLY need to continue, Mr. Lieu? You honestly do NOT wanna challenge me on this point. There is documented proof of over 18,000 MUSLIM ACTS OF TERRORISM worldwide since 9/11.
    But let’s take a look at your WARPED interpretation and justifications. In your letter to Mr. Niblock, you make the following statement:

    “The fact that some people commit murder or other extreme acts in the name of a peaceful religion—whether Christianity or Islam or Hinduism—does not somehow give that religion an “agenda” that would be a “danger” to “American liberties and traditional values.” In fact, it is Lowe’s bigotry that poses a danger to American liberties and values.
    One of America’s main founding principles was religious freedom. Many early Americans fled Europe because of Europe’s religious intolerance at the time. Another principle that makes us Americans is the protection of minority rights, and the abhorrence of discrimination based on protected classes such as race, national origin, and religion. I find it unsettling that I need to remind Lowe’s of our nation’s deeply held principles.”

    Are you SERIOUS? SOME people who commit “murder or other extreme acts in the name of a PEACEFUL religion…” Since I am quite certain you have NEVER read the Quar’an, let me enlighten you as to some its more PEACEFUL tenets:

    Qur’an (63:8) – “…might belongeth to Allah and to His messenger and to the believers;” i.e. not to anyone else.

    Qur’an (33:36) – “It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision.”

    Qur’an (5:49) – “So judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their desires, but beware of them lest they seduce thee from some part of that which Allah hath revealed unto thee”

    Qur’an (4:123) – “Not your desires, nor those of the People of the Book (can prevail): whoever works evil, will be requited accordingly. Nor will he find, besides Allah, any protector or helper.”

    Qur’an (4:59) – “O you who believe! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority from among you…”

    Qur’an (9:3) – “…Allah and his messenger are free from obligation to the unbelievers…” (Muhammad used this “revelation” to dissolve a standing treaty and chase non-Muslims from their homes if they wouldn’t accept Islam. This practice would be incompatible with democratic rule, in which everyone is considered equal.)

    ♦ From the Hadith:

    Muslim (19:4294) – “When you meet your enemies who are polytheists [Christians…], invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them … If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them” Non-Muslims are intended to be subordinate to Muslims.

    Bukhari (88:219) – “Never will succeed such a nation as makes a WOMAN their ruler.”

    Bukhari (89:251) – Allah’s Apostle said, “Whoever obeys me, obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, disobeys Allah, and whoever obeys the ruler I appoint, obeys me, and whoever disobeys him, disobeys me.”

    Mr. Lieu, let me ask you this… you claim that these people who commit acts of terrorism in the name of their RELIGION (which it is not) do NOT represent a DANGER to “American liberties and traditional values.” In fact, it is Lowe’s bigotry that poses a danger to American liberties and values.” WHERE, pray tell, are the Muslim leaders speaking out and SCREAMING against these “acts of terrorism?” Where are the MODERATES who appear on national TV condemning these actions? They’re NOT. By their silence they CONDONE the actions. But let’s see what they DO SAY, on both DEMOCRACY and American Liberties and Traditional Values…

    * Cleric, Sayyid Qutb, (Egyptian Cleric, author, educator, Islamist, poet, and the leading intellectual of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in the 1950s and ’60s), “It is Allah and not man who rules. Allah is the source of all authority, including legitimate political authority. Virtue, not freedom, is the highest value. Therefore, Allah’s law, not men, should govern the society.”
    * Cleric Sufi Muhammad, (founder of Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi (TNSM), a Pakistani militant organization with Wahabi learnings): “True Islam permits neither elections, nor democracy.”
    * Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (Iranian religious leader and politician, and leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution): “Don’t listen to those who speak of democracy. They all are against Islam. They want to take the nation away from its mission. We will break all the poison pens of those who speak of nationalism, democracy, and such things.”
    * Abu Bakar Bashir (Godfather of Indonesian Terror Group Jemaah Islamiyah), “The west is trying to weaken Islam from within with ideas like secularism, liberalism and democracy. This is all designed to contaminate our pure Islam.”
    * Anjem Choudary (English born former solicitor and proscribed spokesman for the Islamist group Islam4UK): Nowadays, people worship idols which are more intellectual – like democracy, liberalism, freedom, and so on. So these need to be destroyed as well, and replaced with worshiping and obeying Allah.
    ♦ Islamic law is based on the Qur’an and the Sunnah, which are set and fixed. There is no need for addition or correction. Neither is there any room for the law of fallible man (particularly non-Muslims). Nor should it take the place of Allah’s perfect law, which tells a man everything he needs to know about daily life (down to which hand he should “hold it in” while urinating).
    The law of one man, one vote is heretical to Islam. The testimony of a Muslim woman is worth only half that of a man. Jews and Christians are never to have equal standing with Muslims under the law (and certainly never in a position of authority over Muslims), and atheists are to be killed outright.
    Muhammad ruled on Allah’s authority and did not submit his decisions to the will of the people. Even if the entire world became Muslim overnight, it is highly doubtful that democracy would last, since it would be applicable only to the most mundane of matters not already decided by Islamic law.

    For your information Senator Lieu, I too am a veteran who lost 241 friends in the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut and I swore to protect and defend this country against ALL enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC, and I have NOT been discharged of that duty as a Marine OR as an American. YOU, Mr. Lieu, and your cohorts such as Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, et al, call ME the terrorist because I believe in the defense of the founding principles of this country, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Yes, you are correct– the First Amendment DOES guarantee the individual right to worship as one sees fit… up to the point it becomes a THREAT to the peace and security of America and Her interests. Islam is a THEOCRACY, NOT a religion. It controls every aspect of a person’s life including food, education, finance, worship, marriage (even if the child is SIX YEARS OLD). It is NOT compatible with a Constitutional Republic and through Terrorism, Legal Jihad, Threats, Intimidation and HONOR KILLINGS, focuses on destroying what you liberals haven’t so far.
    You talk about religious tolerance. You are not QUALIFIED to talk about it Mr. Lieu. Your letter shows exactly how intolerant YOU ARE by demanding a company deny their CHRISTIAN beliefs and philosophies in favor of PC-ism because it might OFFEND someone. Well, guess what Senator, your use of the term “HOLIDAY SEASON” is an affront and disrespectful to CHRISTIANS during the CHRISTMAS season. Let me assure you Mr. Lieu… AMERICA stands with LOWE’S as well as the other companies who pulled their advertising from the show, and we WILL show our support and appreciation to a company who refuses to be intimidated by Islam, liberals and individuals such as yourself.
    In closing, your ignorance on the subject of Islam and their stated objectives are a danger to this country. I would suggest you research the issues before issuing an uneducated, incorrect and alarming letter. I pray God gives you wisdom and discernment in the future and I remain,

    Semper Fidelis.

    That’s it! We need to put Bachman in office! We’ll kick ass with a spike-heeled shoe.

      To illustrate, in 1998, CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad was quoted in a California newspaper as saying,

      “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Qur’an should be the highest authority in America.”

        Well, there you go – seems to me they never really tried to disguise their true intent. It is quite simply that we have ignored what they are up to until now.

        Stealthy little bastards

    A coalition of religious leaders, elected officials and activists plan to stage an interfaith protest at a Lowe’s store on Saturday to protest the company’s withdrawal of advertising on a program about Arab-Americans living in nearby Dearborn.

    Scheduled for 11 a.m. at the Southfield Road entrance to the Lowe’s at 23111 Outer Drive, the demonstration will challenge “Lowe’s Decision to Cave in to Hate” when it withdrew advertising on the TLC show “All-American Muslim.”

    “Patriotism the last refuge of a scoundrel” Dr Samual Johnson
    I havent even seen the show but I hear its rather boring – they are just Americans doing what every other American does – live their life – shopping eating, raising their kids. What do you propose? Do you want to deport Americans who are of the Muslim faith? Will that suffice? And you say there is no comparison to the Nazi’s and their right wing ideology cloaked with a religious justification for their treatment of the Jewish people. Seems like the same thing to me. When one person David Caton who is the founder of some obscure group in Florida (does it even have any members?) can get an advertiser to take their ads off the show
    it really speaks to how low we have sunk in this country when it comes to tolerance.
    We are supposed to be BETTER than all these other countries that sponsor intolerance, hatred and rascism – instead we are slowly sinking down to their levels. What happened to I may not agree with your opinion but I will defend to the death your right to it? And I do – defend the right for you to speak and to write what you will – that is what it means to be an American – to have the FREE will to your opinions and your faith. The right has lost the way – its increasingly clear that
    you have lost what it means to really be an American.

    Not at all, Theou – I know fully what it means to be an American

    I stand by our Constitution – which by the way – islam is in direct contrast with and why I resist any and all attempts of muslims to force it upon us

    I am completely intolerant towards any threat to our way of life – which islam is

    You can chose to ignore it – that is your choice after all. I won’t. I have a family I love. A country I love and strength still in me to fight for the freedom of both

      Ditto. Hey! If being a proud American is being a scoundrel, then that I am! And proudly at that. Better than being a Marxist American hater who won’t pack up her bags and move to a nice socialist country. Hypocrite…

        I suppose by calling us scoundrels Theou was being polite, Sherry, even though the intolerance for opposing opinions simply oozes from every word. Some might even consider such language as hateful but we both know Theou is tolerant and oh so non hateful

    “We must empower ourselves and our children to rise above the envious who would have you unnaturally contort yourself to fit their fictitious permanent class structure and crush your dreams of a better life. As citizens of America we are not a collective group of middle, lower or upper class people, but rather individuals freely climbing a ladder of economic opportunity.” ~ Lawrence Stone
