DISSENT Television interview with Special Projects Officer Dr. Robert Katz

Dr. Katz is a Special Projects officer for Defend the Border and The United West.

Dr. Katz was born and grew up in the same neighborhood as Louis Farrakhan and Malcom X, but alas, just wasn’t the right skin color. In this general area, was where the Jewish Defense League first came into prominence.

Dr. Katz graduated from Boston Latin, the oldest high school in the nation, where 5 signers of the Declaration of Independence attended. Contrary to popular belief, he was not in the same graduating class.

In 1970 he immigrated to Israel and spent most of the seventies on a border kibbutz, working in a number of positions, including Intelligence.

After returning to the United States, for treatment after an assassination attempt, he underwent rehabilitation and as a result eventually entered the health care field.

Dr. Katz sold his practice after 9/11 to return to his first love, involvement in Intelligence issues, by becoming Program Director for The National Intelligence Conference (INTELCON), and then Executive Director of The Intelligence Summit, and later, America Resurgent.

In addition, Robert spent 11 years in the U.S. military.

During this compelling interview Dr. Katz covers the war in the Middle East, the overthrow of Europe via the massive Muslim migration and the impacts of the failed policies and politics of the current regime.

At the end of the interview Dr. Katz gives us a ray of hope on how to save our Constitutional Republic.

VIDEO: Twitter Bans ‘POTENTIALLY HARMFUL’ Speech on Christians Voting!

On Saturday August 29, 2020 Tom Trento, Director of The United West, spoke at the Space Coast Convention Center in Cocoa Beach, Florida, for the Reagan Club and Trump Support Center on the topic of why Christians MUST vote in November.

The Trento speech was lived-streamed on a variety of social media platforms but when the effort was made to post on The United West Twitter site, the posting was REJECTED.



  • Either Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be elected or President Donald Trump and Mike Pence will be re-elected.
  • If Biden wins, the Marxists will hit the streets in jubilation and their methodology of violent protest and rioting will become normative in many Democrat cities throughout America…and, in time, in all areas of the country.
  • If President Trump wins, the Marxists will hit the streets in angry desperation and their methodology of violent protest and rioting will increase in many Democrat cities throughout America in an effort to “get rid of” Trump.
  • President Trump will respond with a required, rule-of-law forcefulness, which initially will cause more rioting. Whoever blinks first loses. It will be dangerous, messy, bloody, but the future of the United States, as a Constitutional Republic is at stake.
  • The alternative, a Marxist totalitarian regime.

VIDEO: Florida Atlantic University Professor Defends Islamic Practice of Cutting Off Hands

On Tuesday on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL, the university’s Muslim Student Association’s hosted a so-called Islamophobia panel discussion, which was attended by The United West.

FAU Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Bassem Al Halabi was included on the panel of these distinguished experts and he made the incredible statement about the case to be made for Sharia Law and it’s provisions of capital punishment, including the cutting off of hands.

‘“Where there is no Sharia, Islamic Sharia, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime. People kill people, other people or steal pizza for $10 and so – so when Islamic Shariah is saying about capital punishment – so even though it sounds like it is severe but if that is the solution to prevent any crimes, then it still has a lot of rules and regulations. I will just mention one and stop here, which is let’s say cutting off the hands of a person if they steal. It sounds very severe. It sounds very barbaric, I know. But if takes one or two people to have their hands cut off, and then there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation – that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”

VINDICATED: From Hateful Islamophobe to Global Leader of the Counter-Jihad Movement!

Just two years ago many Americans condemned the counter-jihad work of The United West and me, referring to us as “hateful Islamophobes” who provoke Islam, the “religion of peace.”

Today, many of those same Americans are thanking us from the bottom of their hearts for our continued, aggressive and confrontational work against Islamic jihad, a violent  (and pre-violent) movement that is fundamentally based in the historic doctrinal teaching of Mohammad, the Quran and other theocratic documents.

One reason for this significant shift in the public understanding of our work has been the increased success of the Muslim Brotherhood’s cultural jihad in America and the kinetic success of Daesh (ISIS) on a global scale. Add to this the abject failure of President Obama and his pro-Islamic Administration and you get an incoherent understanding of the Islamic jihad threat resulting in a very dangerous terror index here in the Homeland.

Over against this unspeakable failure of President Obama is the clear, consistent voice and action of my team as we actually name the enemy, identify the enemy, expose the enemy and confront the enemy. As the blood-soaked weapons of Muslim terrorists are turned on innocent Americans and President Obama does his best imitation of a clueless “Baghdad Bob,” common-sense Americans experienced an epiphany finally understanding that there is a real live Muslim jihad that is based on the religious/political system of Islam and that The United West has been right all along!

Ironically, a new book entitled, The Counter-Jihad Movement, written by enemy collaborators, has not only recognized the effectiveness of our work but has listed both The United West and me as global leaders of the Counter-Jihad movement!  The United West is listed on page 144 and I’m listed on page 163.

It is important to note that my work is part of a larger movement including many of whom are also listed in this new book. We work with these folks on a regular basis and they are my friends and true heroes of Western Civilization.

Moreover, the accomplishments of the United West and me are directly related to the generous donations of our support team, in particular to one man and one woman whose support without which, we would not be in operation. To all of you, your names should be in the footnotes of this new book, The Counter-Jihad Movement, BUT, believe me, you really DO NOT want it there!

As America survives the final year of Obama’s disaster on Islamic terrorism, I ask you, based upon our PROVEN record, as now listed as effective operators on a world-wide level, to continue (and increase) your tax-deductible support of my work with my great team at The United West.

You have my word that we will continue to take the fight to Muslim jihadis and defeat the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration into American culture, but we cannot do it without your financial support.

Please make an end-of-the-year donation and donations throughout 2016, a very critical year of cultural battle!

VIDEO: Six Patriots explain why the Iran Nuke Deal is a ‘Bad Deal’ for U.S.

The United West video taped six American patriots on the Iran nuclear deal. These six distinguished individuals include: a Rabbi, a former Iranian prisoner and dissident, a gold star father, a wounded warrior veteran of Iraq, a retired Army Lieutenant General and a former CIA operations officer.

A statement by William Kristol, Chairman of the Emergency Committee for Israel, on the potential vote in Congress on the Iran deal reads:

“The Obama Administration has not complied with the legal requirement that it provide Congress ‘any additional materials’ related to the Iran deal, including ‘side agreements, implementing materials, documents, and guidance, technical or other understandings, and any related agreements, whether entered into or implemented prior to the agreement or to be entered into or implemented in the future.’ The Administration has not given Congress a key side agreement between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency, one which describes how key questions about the possible military dimensions of Iran’s nuclear program will be resolved, as well as how the verification regime will work.

“Congress should not accept this evasion of the law by the Obama Administration. Congress should insist on the text of this and any other side agreements. Lacking this, Congress can and should take the position that the Iran deal has not been properly submitted to Congress to review, and therefore that the president has no authority to waive or suspend sanctions.

“We understand the temptation of leadership to get to a vote on a resolution of disapproval and then to move on to other votes. But the Iran deal isn’t just another legislative issue where some corner-cutting by the Administration is to be accepted with a brief expression of discontent followed by a weary sigh of resignation.

“The Iran deal is the most important foreign policy issue this Congress will have before it. Congress should rise to the occasion and insist on its prerogative — and the American people’s prerogative — to see the whole deal. The first resolution the House should consider when it returns tomorrow should be one stating that Congress has not been provided the material it needs, that the Iran deal has not been properly submitted to Congress, and therefore that the president has no authority to waive or suspend sanctions on Iran.”

Please take the time to watch all the videos or one that interests you the most. It is important to keep the pressure on those 34 Democrat U.S. Senators who have decided that the interests of Iran far outweigh the interests of the American people.

Thanks for taking the time to watch, share and send this compilation to your U.S. Senators and member of Congress.

Benevolence Betrayed



To the best of my knowledge, when I was growing up everyone had a pushke, a tin can that served as an alms box.  I remember two types, cylindrical and squared, always wrapped in paper with a Star of David, and a coin slot at the top.  Each Sabbath (Friday) evening, we dropped coins into it, and when it was full, we would bring it to the local synagogue to be given to Jewish groups that would somehow help the Jews in Europe.

We trusted the Jewish Federations, but just as our world has changed and become unrecognizable, so have the charitable organizations upon which we once depended. Now we must stop and scrutinize their websites to learn if they are, indeed, carrying out the philanthropy they promised, as some have surely deviated from their original mission.  All too often, they bear Jewish or Zionist names, but the aid flows to Muslims in the name of multiculturalism and compassion while those immigrants flood our shores in the name of jihad – to establish Islam and Sharia law throughout the free world.  And if that weren’t enough, the Saudi Prince has just pledged $32 billion to advance the Islamization of America, to be fashioned after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that produced Common Core.

The Jewish Coalition for Syrian Refugees in Jordan, for example, is the umbrella organization for organizations such as the ADL, AJC, JCPA, Jewish Federations of North America, and others that work to bring Muslims to America, to accomplish their Qur’anic obligation of jihad.  A group once known as the Hebrew Immigration American Society, has since dropped “Hebrew” from its name.  HIAS now uses Jewish donations to resettle Syrian Muslims in America. US Together is resettling Afghan and Syrian refugees in Toledo, Ohio, which already features a mosque, shopping center, large apartment complex, Arabic charter school, and a huge employer, the University of Toledo, within walking distance.

We can no longer trust, unconditionally, what we knew or what we hoped.  Our world is a very different place.  The following is a list of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim organizations known to work against the best interests of Jews, Israel, and America. Without the use of violence, they pose a real and present danger to all.

  • Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER): regularly links anti-war and anti-Israel movements at rallies; coordinated rallies against Israel during flotilla and other wars.
  • Al-Awda: largest Palestinian-American grassroots organization. Hosts conferences to strategize about ways to oppose Israel; champions Palestinians’ “right of return.”  Norman Finkelstein is a member.
  • American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee: Deals with cases of “discrimination, defamation, and hate crimes” against Arabs, monitors “stereotyping and bias in films”; this is an extension of Islamophobia, controlling what may be spoken about Muslims and Islam, including homeland security issues, etc.,  Gives voice to anti-Semitism, supporting terrorism and genocide, and destruction of the State of Israel
  • American Friends Service Committee: While claiming to work for peace and social justice in the US and around the world (including racial injustice, women’s issues, equality for sexual minorities), it has been called ‘the most militant and aggressive of Christian anti-Israel groups.
  • CODEPINK, a woman-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement that is boycotting Israel products on behalf of Palestinian issues, and attracts anti-Semitic supporters.
  • Council for the National Interest  (CNI): an anti-Israel organization that opposes aid to Israel  and disseminates demonizing propaganda about Israel to academics, politicians, and other audiences.
  • Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation trial, is linked to Muslim Brotherhood, supports Hamas, and promotes lawsuits to thwart American laws (lawfare).
  • Friends of Sabeel-North American (FOSNA): Jerusalem-based Palestinian Christian organization, forges alliances with mainline Protestant churches; accuses Israel of racism, oppression, human rights violations.
  • HIAS used to stand for Hebrew Immigration American Society, a charitable organization that responded to the needs of Jews from the pogroms of Eastern Europe to the Holocaust to the collapse of the Iron Curtain. HIAS and ADL under the auspices of the UJA Federation of NY have joined together, using Jewish money to bring Muslims to America – their commitment to diversity, without regard to consequences.
  • If Americans Knew (IAK): demands end to US support; speaks at colleges, etc. Invents conspiracy theories: USS Liberty, harvesting Palestinian organs, “transplant tourism,” etc.
  • International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network: an international network of Jews committed to “liberating” the “Palestinian people” and land, and dismantling Israel. They create policy and set anti-Israel agenda.
  • International Solidarity Movement (ISM): Anti-Israel movement, such as “Free Gaza Movement” with eight-boat flotilla mission and violent clashes with Israeli Navy.
  • Islamic Society of North America (ISNA): named as unindicted co-conspirator in the US Dept of Justice Holy Land Foundation trials, it is connected to virtually all other Islamic organizations (including MSA). Its purpose it to replace the US  Constitution with sharia law and government with Islamic state.  Projects: Islamic education, youth organization, mosque construction and control, media and science.
  • J Street: a George Soros-funded, far-left organization that claims to be “pro-Israel,” but spends its energy opposing Israeli policies. Posturing as pro-peace Americans who seek security, it consistently advocates for a perilous two-state solution that would ultimately diminish Isael’s borders, cede land to her enemies, ad further endanger Israeli citizens.
  • Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP): Led by Rebecca Vilkomerson, executive director of the New York chapter, JVP uses its Jewish identity to call an end toIsrael. It is dedicated to disparage and defame Israel as a racist, apartheid state and support BDS – sometimes violently – against Israelis, and at the University of California.
  • Muslim American Society (MAS): promotes, organizes anti-Israel activity in US.  Works with mosques to attract demonstrators to support terrorist groups; raised funds for Viva Palestina convoy to Gaza (2009). Co-sponsored Chicago conference to eradicate Israel.
  • Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP): Anti-Israel events and campaigns on campuses, including Israeli Apartheid weeks, mock “apartheid walls” and “checkpoint” displays. Divestment campaigns.
  • Student Muslim Union (SMU) or Association (SMA) purports to serve the needs of the Muslim community. With claims of social injustice and oppression, they instigate and encourage boycott (BDS) against Israel, and harassment against Jewish students.  They are the campus arm of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel: Academics and organizations in “Palestine,” the US, the UK, and other countries to boycott Israeli universities and academics; to isolate Israel and align with the greater BDS movement. (Other scholars and politicians describe the campaign as “profoundly unjust.”
  • US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (USCEIO): over 200 national groups to persuade US government to cut aid to Israel. They strategize and formulate policies and oppose Israeli blockades. Conspiratorial speakers included Dennis Kucinich (former U.S. Representative from Ohio, twice candidate for Democratic nomination for U.S. President, 53rd Mayor of Cleveland, with “the strongest liberal perspective,” and Brian Baird (president of Antioch University Seattle, U.S. Representative for Washington’s 3rd congressional district, member of Democratic Party.

The following are some organizations that are known for strongly supporting Israel:

  • ZOA – Zionist Organization of America,
  • AFSI – Americans For a Safe Israel,
  • CAMERA – Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America,
  • CJUI – Christians and Jews United for Israel,
  • EMET – Endowment for Middle East Truth,
  • HonestReporting,
  • MEMRI – Middle East Media Research Institute,
  • Stand With Us, and
  • Tom Trento’s The United West organization.

Rare Look Inside The Garland Terrorist Attack Venue As It Unfolded

Join The United West team as we take you step by step through what happened to us inside the event.

First we will hear 4 minutes of Robert Spencer explaining why the event was messaged like it was. He specifically addresses those who believe Pamela Geller’s event was unnecessarily provocative to the followers of Islam.

Next you will be inside the venue with us as a Garland SWAT leader explains to the audience that shots were fired and they will need to move all in attendance into the auditorium which is further away from the front entrance.

Next you will experience being moved to a safer offsite facility approximately 5 miles from the Culwell Center where we learn that we were targets of a terrorist attack and law enforcement needed our statements.

Then well after midnight we were released and the City Of Garland put us up in a hotel for the night because where we were staying was off limits due to proximity of the attack area.

Pamela Geller paid five figures for additional security. Little did she know the Islamic State would send two Muslim Jihadis to attack and try to kill as many people inside as possible in the first IS attack on domestic targets in the United States.

The United West team thanks the Garland Police Department and Garland Police SWAT Unit for keeping all the attendees safe during this terrorist event.

The two Muslim Jihadi shooters were wearing body armor, they were armed with 100 round drum fed fully automatic AK-47’s, and had grenades they did not have time to detonate. There mission, luckily for us, failed but imagine for a brief moment what would could have happened if these to Muslim Jihadis picked a softer location like a mall, restaurant, hospital, etc….

Interestingly there was not one single pro Islamist protester at the event. Conversely, at the Stand with the Prophet event in January close to 250 Muslim protesters and their sympathizers were protesting against the 2000+ patriots who were protesting the Muslim event being held at the Culwell Center.

It will be interesting to see if next year the school district of Garland, Tx denies Pamela Geller or anyone else access to their facility for the planned 2nd annual event for free speech.

If that should come to pass unfortunately the Jihadis will have won because the Garland School District will have submitted to the fear caused by Islamic violence.

Texas Muslim Shooters’ Profile: Elton Simpson and Nadir Hamid Soofi

Elton Simpson and Nadir Hamid Soofi, both suspects killed in the Garland, Texas jihad attack have been identified from the Arizona vehicle registrations and driver photo IDs. Simpson, 30, and Soofi, 34 were roommates in a central Phoenix condominium. The Phoenix condominium was the subject of an FBI and police bomb squad investigation early this morning

Simpson was the author of the tweets sent just before the attack. He has been the subject of an FBI terrorism investigation since 2006 and was convicted in a Federal Court trial in 2011 for material support for terrorism, an attempt to travel to Somalia to Join Al Shabaab. One of the two perpetrators is alleged as having connections to CAIR, the self-styled Muslim civil rights group, an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood.

 ISIS in a series of tweets,  sent prior to the May 3rd Muhammad Art Contest sponsored by Pam Geller’s American Freedom  Defense Initiative,   inspired brothers  in the U.S. to undertake an attack on the event. ISIS social media claimed responsibility for the attack in which both perpetrators were killed and a security officer slightly injured. The pre-event ISIS tweets doubtless increased the security arrangements at the AFDI event. A purported Muhammad Art contest  that featured a speech by Dutch Freedom Party leader, Geert Wilders and appearances by Rep. Louie Gohmert, Geller and Robert Spencer and others.  200 attendees were in lockdown following the attack and vehicles impounded as evidence in the crime scene. The event was webcast yesterday by the team from The United West led by Tom Trento.

Trento will discuss his experience at the Garland, Texas Muhammad Art Contest event with this writer and Mike Bates, co-host of “Your Turn” on 1330am WEBY, Northwest Florida‘s Talk Radio.  You may listen live here.

Heavy.com has compiled a dossier on the perpetrators of last night jihad attack in Garland, Texas, “Elton Simpson: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know.”  The article reported:

Elton Simpson has been identified as one of the two gunmen who opened fire Sunday night outside the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Texas. An unarmed security guard was shot, but survived with a non-life-threatening wound, before Simpson and his accomplice were killed by police.

Simpson, 30, and the other gunman, his roommate, 34-year-old Nadir Hamid Soofi, are from Phoenix, Arizona.

Simpson was “well known” by the FBI and was the subject of a previous terror investigationABC News reports. He and Soofi were armed with assault rifles and wearing body protection, police said. They exchanged fire with a Garland police officer armed with handgun.

Simpson’s father, Dunston Simpson, told ABC News, “We are Americans and we believe in America. What my son did reflects very badly on my family,” adding that his son “made a bad choice.”

WFAA reports that FBI agents were searching the gunmen’s Phoenix, Arizona home.

Police also remain at the scene of the shooting, and have been examining the gunmen’s car. They were concerned about explosives being hidden inside it.


The FBI began investigating Simpson in 2006, when they began recording conversations he was having with an informant. He was arrested in 2010.

According to court records, Simpson received a sentence of three years probation in 2011 after he was found guilty of making a false statement to the FBI.

Simpson told FBI agents he had not talked with others about traveling to Somalia, when he in fact had talked to others about traveling to the African country, according to court documents. Judge Mary H. Murguia found there wasn’t enough evidence to support the FBI’s claim that the travel was related to terrorism. He had elected for a trial by the judge, rather than a jury.

The FBI had claimed that Simpson was traveling to Somalia to engage in “violent jihad.” The FBI claimed he was planning to travel to Africa to join the al-Shabaab terror group, which has since been responsible for the deadly Kenyan terror attacks at the Nairobi mall and Garissa University.

Simpson’s probation ended in 2014.

The Volokh Conspiracy blog wrote about the case in 2011, calling it a “partial government victory / partial defeat.”

Read the court order explaining why Simpson was found guilty:

According to court documents, Simpson was born in Illinois and then moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where he “converted to the Muslim religion at a young age.”

His attorney during the 2010 trial, Kristina Sitton, told ABC News that Simpson was on the no-fly list and the FBI had tried to convince him to cooperate with them, including after his conviction. Sitton said she thought Simpson was “harmless,” according to ABC News:

He grew up the most normal guy. Just a normal high school guy… Converting to Islam seemed like a good thing for him. He had been going down a bad path and then he found Islam. He never struck me as someone who would do this sort of thing. I’m not a bleeding heart, I’m a Republican. I’ve seen some pretty bad guys and he seemed pretty normal.

Simpson was working at a dentist’s office in Arizona, but had been on vacation prior to the shooting, his father told ABC News. Dunston Simpson said he last spoke to his son three weeks ago, but they “had not much to talk about, because we had some very serious differences.” Dunston Simpson said Elton was a “good kid.”

Here are some items from the Heavy.com dossier on Nadir Hamid Soofi, “Nadir Hamid Soofi: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know”:

According to his Facebook page, Soofi spent a considerable amount of time with his little brother. He’s a graduate of the University of Utah and the International School of Islamabad in Pakistan. His page also shows multiple posts featuring Palestinian and anti-police propaganda. Frequently, he posts the phrase “Eid Mubarak” meaning celebration to the blessed. Soofi was the owner of Effinity Solutions, a carpet cleaning business in Phoenix. In July 2013, he called himselfa “newbie to the carpet cleaning industry.”


AZ Family reports that the two gunmen lived at an apartment on 19th Avenue and Thunderbird Road (above) in Phoenix. The day after the shooting, FBI agents, some clad in bomb squad gear, searched the apartment. The car they drove to the attack in Garland was registered in Arizona. The car, a 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt, was owned by Soofi. He tried to sell it back in March 2015 for nearly $9,000.

Police said prior Soofi’s name being released that the two had gone to the event with the intention of killing people. Both were armed with assault rifles. Garland cops stopped short of calling the attack a terrorist incident.

Israel – Sanity in an Insane Middle East

Is there any serious thinking person who still believes that Islam is a “religion of peace?”

If there is, they cannot be watching any news reports anywhere. Islam, in particular a pure doctrinal Islam as practiced by the Islamic State, is reaping global death and destruction in the perfect model of their leader, Mohammed. As a result, the Middle East is on fire and the fire is just starting. Today, I and The United West team begin a week-long presentation of their recent national security mission in Israel and how that tiny nation is a civilized oasis in the midst of Islamic incivility.

Moreover, against this chaos, Iran through a New York Times editorial is positioning themselves as the world leader in establishing Middle East peace against the warmongering America and Israel.

WOW, watch our show for a wild ride!

The lesson learned here is what the Muslims say about how sacred this Temple Mount is, and how they treat it (under their control) not Israels, should be contemplated and internalized by all.

VIDEO: ‘Obama is the most radical President ever’

Thursday evening, a retired U.S. Marine Corps Colonel approached me and asked if I had interviewed a soft-spoken professor. He had viewed a YouTube video that had been sent to him from a Facebook page. I smiled and told him, that the person he referred to in YouTube video was Dr. Richard L. Rubenstein, a contributing editor and esteemed colleague at the New English Review.

I also explained that Dr. Rubenstein is a noted Jewish theologian, an ordained Rabbi from the Jewish Theological Seminary. Dr. Rubenstein also holds a Master in Theology (S.T.M.) from Harvard Divinity School and was awarded a Ph.D. from Harvard University in History and Philosophy of Religion. Further, he is a Lawton Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Religion at Florida State University where he taught for 25 years and is a President Emeritus and Life Trustee of Bridgeport University in Connecticut.

I further explained to my  friend that  Dr. Rubenstein  is the author of seminal works concerned with the aftermath of the holocaust, After Auschwitz; History, Theology and Contemporary Judaism,  and history of surplus populations, The Cunning of History. Of increasing importance is Dr. Rubenstein’s, Jihad and Genocide that presents a stark warning to co-religionists and all Infidels of their fate under the Qur’anic doctrine and Islamic Shariah law. More about Dr. Rubenstein’s several careers, lengthy publications list and honorary degrees can be found here.  Dr. Rubenstein recently celebrated his 91st birthday in January 2015. He lost his beloved wife and guiding light, Dr.  Betty Rogers Rubenstein, after 47 years of marriage in 2013.

The video my friend referred to was one of a series of interviews we did at the 2010 NER Symposium with the able assistance of a team from The United West, J. Mark Campbell and Alan Kornman, fellow counter-jihad activists.  Samples of their fine work during the 2010 NER Symposium can be found here. When the YouTube video of Dr. Rubenstein’s interview and provocative comments about President Obama were posted back in 2010, it literally went viral, reaching over a million hits within a few weeks.

My curiosity about my friend’s comments about Dr. Rubenstein’s 2010 interview prompted me to do a Google search.  After finding the Facebook page he referred to I noted the tens of thousands of views it had recently received. Dr. Rubenstein’s comments about President Obama were prescient in retrospect when he first made them in 2010. They are relevant given the myopia on display by the National Security echelons in the Oval Office and the President’s recent press conference remarks.

Criticism has arisen with the President’s referring in a Vox.com interview to “randomized attacks” against unidentified Jewish victims at a kosher supermarket in Paris. Then there is  the public consternation over  the lack of a strategy  that begs the necessity  of defining the nature of the threat  to “degrade and defeat” the Islamic State that lies bestride  war torn Syria and Iraq like a Jihadist colossus. An Islamic State that has attracted tens of thousands of foreign Jihadists flocking to its doctrinal cause of promoting the Salafist exemplar, the Prophet Mohammed of 14 Centuries ago.   That is following the way of Allah, Jihad, seeking ultimate Islamic domination of the globe by slaughtering thousands of religious minorities, Christians, Jews and Buddhists as captives in the Middle East and attacking hapless victims in the West.

Watch Dr. Rubenstein’s prescient NER interview of 2010:

Muslims in Miami scream “We Are HAMAS!”

Pro Hamas Rally Miami, FL – Muslims Scream, “Let’s go HAMAS. We are HAMAS!” We present a detailed examination of the HAMAS Charter, which states:

The historical dimension of the Islamic Resistance Movement [HAMAS] originates from its adoption of Islam as a system of life. It reaches far back to the birth of the Islamic Message and to the Pious Predecessors. Therefore, Allah is its goal, the Messenger its leader, and the Quran its constitution.

We also have an expert war analysis by Dr. Martin Sherman.
