Shepherdsville business said to be target of hate crime will close

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) – The Iraqi-owned business that police say was the target of a hate crime will not reopen.  The business manager for Jacob’s Smoke Shop says he filed paperwork with the secretary of state to officially close the business.

Vandals broke in and ripped apart the Shepherdsville store last month, spray painting “Hate Arab” and “Go Home” on the floors and walls.  Community members have now posted words of encouragement on the front of the business.

Owner Ali Alboodi told them he feared for his life and was returning to Iraq.  The FBI is investigating.

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart: Terror-Free All American Muslim

Jon Stewart

Terror-Free All American Muslim

On tonight’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a look at the controversy surrounding TLC’s new show, All American Muslim, and the Tampa-based group that hates it. Because the Muslims depicted in the show aren’t shown to be terrorists bent on destroying America, the Florida Family Association can’t abide it. Like most zealots, all they want is their stereotypes reinforced. Is it too much to ask for Bravo to whip up a season of the The Real Martyrs of Jalalabad? Sheesh.

Why Did The Pentagon Fund Paranoid, Anti-Muslim Economic Research?

Why Did The Pentagon Fund Paranoid, Anti-Muslim Economic Research?

Earlier we mentioned a new report funded by the Pentagon, which argues that economic terrorists were behind the collapse of the economy (and that they’re not through).

Not only is the pure rubbish, but the report also appears to be anti-Muslim.

Not only does it claim that Sovereign Wealth Funds had a major hand in the crash, it makes a big point of their being “Shariah Complaint.”

The report seems to draw a lot of inspiration from this nonsense (.pdf) titled “The Fifth Generation Warfare (5Gw Shari’ah Financing and the coming Ummah.”

It writes:

The United States and the West cannot win the war against radical Islam merely with the most sophisticated military strategies. Winning requires understanding the role of shari`ah and the Muslim Brotherhood in developing a global ideological and political movement supported by a parallel “Islamic” financial system to exploit and undermine Western economies and markets. This movement is the foundation and the major funding source for the political, economic, and military initiatives of the global Islamic movement.1

Shari`ah finance is a new weapon in the arsenal of what might be termed fifth-generation warfare (5GW).2 The perpetrators include both states and organizations, advancing a global totalitarian ideology disguised as a religion. The end goal is to impose that ideology worldwide, making the Islamic “nation”, or ummah, supreme.

So yeah, why is the government funding this kind of thing?

BTW, here’s the chart used in the presentation showing how these Sovereign Wealth Funds interact with US companies?
