When The First Amendment Died

First of all I just want to give a big shout out to the savage sadists, who put a bounty on my head for insulting their precious little “prophet.”  You’re going to be hearing a lot more from me in these days.  So, get used to it, because my free speech and I are not going anywhere and you fascist fanatic freaks will be hunted down and prosecuted, Insha’Allah.

Now then, with all of the death threats directed at me and others, who are simply telling the truth about Islam, one has to wonder, what are the leaders in Islam trying to hide?  It’s a belief system and we should be allowed to question it, criticize it, to question it and even mock it.  In fact, come to think of it, we are allowed to do all of those things.  This is America, land of the free and home of the brave – also home of the First Amendment, a freedom which keeps the rest of the free world free.  And free is how we intend to remain, no matter what the cost.

But if America is a free country then why is a New Jersey Islamic cleric, Mohammad Qatanani, leader of the Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPCsaying this? “Americans, have to put limits on freedom of speech,” and “Americans may have the freedom to speak their mind, ultimately, they have no right to talk about Muslim holy issues” and things of that nature.  Has he forgotten where he is?  Or is he in America to try to change things for the benefit of Islam?

Moronic Muslim messages such as this one, here in America, are in no short supply.  In fact lately, Islamist leaders and many so-called “moderate Muslims” seem to be feeling somewhat emboldened by the recent wave of global fascist fist shaking and showing their true colors, at last.

It’s probably worth mentioning that the Department of Homeland Security charges that this enemy of free speech, Imam Mohammad Qatanani, in applying for a green card, failed to disclose that in 1993 he was arrested in Israel and convicted of aiding Hamas.  Qatani also has admitted to being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood which is the parent organization of Hamas.  How Islamophobic of me really though to even bring this up.  There must be some kind of a misunderstanding actually because New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie keeps calling this terrorist-tied enemy of the American Constitution his “friend”.

Speaking of people and organizations that are here to change America to accommodate Islam – I could not help but notice that CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, was using social media in a rather irresponsible way.  Recently, “CAIR National” a Hamas front group, decided to distribute an article, which tries to connect me to the making of a film that I clearly did not make:

This article also seems to imply that the threats are probably made up, and even if they are real, I probably have it coming, given what I wrote on this last 9/11 day of remembrance.  The continuous advancement, of this concocted rumor, has resulted in a bounty of 10 million Rupees being placed on my head by Islamic terrorists.  Someone seems to have a lot invested in fanning the flames and keeping this “misunderstanding” alive in the Pakistani press and the online Islamo-blogosphere – also known as the “Islamosphere” or “the place where so-called Islamophobia researchers signal to Jihadists whom they should target for death threats and/or assassination”.

Pictured Above: An Islamic bounty on my head of 10 million Rupees.
Does the head shot on the right make me look fat?

Anyway, I’ll cycle back to the issue of Islamic terrorists calling for my assassination in a moment. But first I want to expose, once and for all, the followers of Jesus Christ.

“Jesus Christ” is a recurring character on Fox’s hit comedy series, “Family Guy”.  In the now legendary episode called, “I Dream of Jesus” Peter discovers Jesus working at a record store and tries to help him make a comeback, by booking Jesus on the Jay Leno Show.  The character of Jesus then skyrockets to fame, goes on tour, blinged out in gold chains and designer sunglasses, while backed by a band of bikini-clad back-up singers.  He calls his act “Jesus Christ and the Pussy Cat Dolls”.

Pictured Above: The most-watched episode of “Family Guy” in America called “I Dream of Jesus”

Strangely however, I don’t see followers of Jesus Christ storming embassies, burning flags, gang raping an Ambassador, rioting in the streets chanting “death to America!” or putting a bounty on anybody’s head.  I’m not a follower of Jesus Christ personally, but I did grow up in a family that was a big part of his fan club.  And I do recall from years of Sunday school that Jesus did teach something about forgiveness and loving your neighbor.  Come to think of it, he set bar pretty high, because he said to love your neighbor as yourself.  And unlike the illiterate, blood-thirsty savage Muhammad, he never said to “strike terror into the hearts of the unbelievers”.  And what holy man would utter such belligerent nonsense unless he was riddled with insecurities and scared to death of being found out for being a con artist, a child rapist and a thief?

So why are the followers of Muhammad so touchy?  Do they suffer from the same insecurities that Muhammad did?  Why do their fragile feelings get hurt so easily?  Why do so many of Muhammad’s deeply delusional followers demand we respect their imaginary “prophet” or else face death threats, rioting, violence and destruction?  Why are we expected to pretend that this self-proclaimed “prophet” is beyond criticism and to roll over when his followers attack our First Amendment right to free speech?

What is it about Islam that makes it so opposed to free speech, and why do its leaders keep telling us that Islamic Law (also known as Sharia Law) is compatible with our Constitution?  If Sharia Law denies the right to free speech, then clearly it is not compatible with the Constitution. Why all the lies and double standards?

Could it be that Islam commands that it is superior?  It’s hard to believe that a severely indoctrinated culture, suffering from such insufferable insecurity could expect us to believe something so absurd, but actually they do.  In the muddied minds of the Muslim masses this is not a double standard at all.  In fact this is central to the belief system of Islam – that Islam is superior and that the whole world must submit to the laws of Islam.

In the best-selling fictional thriller, “The Hoy Quran,” poorly ghost-written by an illiterate desert filthy old man, using the pen name “Allah,” the character “Muhammad” arrogantly gives everyone who does not follow his delusional ideology three options: either you convert, subjugate or be killed.  Furthermore, the Islamic scriptures command that Mohammad is the highest moral example in Islam – the man to be followed and imitated.  According to Islamic Scholar and author, Dr. Bill Warner:

“The importance of studying Muhammad is found in the Koran itself. Over 30 times the Koran says that every human being is supposed to do everything in their life patterned after Muhammad. Then it turns around and says over 40 times that if you don’t do everything like Mohammed did it, you will go to hell. Everything has to be done the way Muhammad did. Muhammad is the perfect pattern of life for all peoples for all time.”

1,400 years of following the horrific example of “The Prophet” has created a culture of fear, violence, Jew hatred, women hatred, homicide of homosexuals, prohibition of critical thinking and endless wars, tyranny and an absolute intolerance for free speech.  It grows like a giant wicked beast, which reaches out its poisonous tentacles into numerous climate regions of the planet and brainwashes the minds of the most frightened, least educated, poorest people, the ones who are most vulnerable, promising them paradise and scaring them into submission with the threat of hell, making them all the “slaves of Allah”.  Its tyranny must end.  But other than that, Islam is peace.

At least, that is what we are told by our Petroleum-compromised past President, our Islamist appeasing current Commander and Chief, Mullahs, Muftis, clerics and Imams around the world and the Council on American Islamic Relations.

So, if Islam is peace, then why did an Islamic cleric place a Fatwa on Salman Rushdie to be assassinated after the publication of the award-winning novel, “The Satanic Verses”?  Why did the Danish Cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard wake up to a Somali Muslim, armed with an axe and a knife, who had broken into his home to murder him for drawing “the prophet” Muhammad?  Why is it that the filmmaker of the 11 minute film “Submission”Theo van Gogh, was shot several times in broad daylight, and then had a sword rammed into his heart with a note to his co-filmmaker (causing her to go into hiding), denouncing the “mocking of the prophet”?

What do these artists and many others like them have in common?  They have used the arts to lampoon Muhammad.  So, given that Muhammad is the “highest moral example” to his followers, what would Mohammed have done?  According to the Islamic scriptures, Mohammed did find out about some poets who were lampooning him and he had all of them murdered for it.  Those who seek the death of artists who lampoon Muhammad are simply being devout Muslims, by following the numerous commands which state that Muhammad is the highest moral example in Islam.  The word Islam literally means “submission” and those violent deranged individuals who carry out violence in the name of Allah (Jihad) are merely submitting to Islam.  Islam is a mental illness, it’s contagious and its only remedy is truth.

As I mentioned earlier, I was recently accused of being the filmmaker behind the hit YouTube Islamo-Comedy “The Innocence of Muslims.” I haven’t seen a movie this bad since, “He’s Just Not that Into You.”  However, I did not make “The Innocence of Muslims”.  I had nothing to do with the making of “The Innocence of Muslims”.  I am not the filmmaker.  Here, I’ll print it in Arabic:

لم أكن جعل فيلمبراءة المسلمين“. لم يكن لدي أي علاقة مع هذا الفيلم. لم يكن لدي أي اتصال لهذا الفيلم.

Unfortunately, an estimated 2/3 of Musims cannot read.  And as for those who can, so far 3 Pakistani newspapers name me as “the filmmaker” (here and here and here).

And now a Pakistani government official put a bounty on the head of “the filmmaker” without naming anyone in particular.  Soon after, a Pakistani Islamic cleric put a bounty of “10 million Rupees” (where have I heard that before?) on “the filmmaker” without naming anyone by name.   It’s as if this were to insure that there be no future filmmakers who create YouTube videos which “mock the prophet”.

Someone purposefully planted the false story that I made the film, even though the real filmmaker has clearly been identified.  Again, if I ever do make a film which “mocks the prophet” I will stand behind it.  Whoever is behind this plot, planting this story and trying to fan the flames to get me assassinated, is trying to exact revenge, to silence me.  Given the number of Islamists I have exposed, for their terrorist ties, in my articles online, figuring out “who done it” is like something right out of an Agatha Christie novel, if Agatha Christie was wearing a burka and the property of some Muslim man.  So why is that?  Have I hit a nerve?  Who would have the resources, the connections and the drive to keep this false rumor alive?

Whoever is behind this plot to silence or kill me, it doesn’t matter.  Because I will not be silenced.  I will not submit – and neither should you.  I will continue to share information which exposes Muhammad for the vile, disgusting, pedophile, rapist, homicidal sadistic maniac, blood thirsty tyrant, hiding a desperately fragile ego – and so should you.

Islam’s dirty little secret regarding the truth about Muhammad must be exposed consistently.  Now is not the time to recoil, dazed in a state of shock, paralyzed with fear, just because you see savages rioting on your TV screen.  I speak to the FBI several times a day, from the confines of a safe house, where I have been advised not to walk next to any windows.  And I am not afraid.  And neither should you be afraid.  For Islam is just a scared little man – a scared little man whom we can and must defeat.

This is our time.  The time is now.  The time has come.  Islam is making a major move, a power grab – not as a sign of confidence, but because in fact Islam is a dying idea, desperately clawing at anything to survive.  But it cannot.  Islam cannot survive the information age.  Islam cannot stand up to critical thought, to reason, to factual analysis, to being outnumbered by rational sane and civilized people willing to speak up.  If you are suffering from the delusion that you are a Muslim, seek psychiatric attention from a trained professional immediately.  But if you are a lover of liberty than now is the time – now more than ever – this is your time and my time and our time to stand up and say ENOUGH.  Truth is the enemy of Islamic brutality.  Spread it.  Spread it like Napalm.

Peace,

Eric Allen Bell

    Eric, Well done response to the abomination they call a religion. I am not as optimistic as you about convincing people of the truth. I have been telling the truth for years and I have yet to convince anyone. Generally frightened people (liberals) hear what they want to hear and they have a mental filter for anything that might cause them to look critically at their flawed world view. Oh and they like being lied to. I get the "deer in the headlights" look and they change the subject. It is the same mental illness that keeps them from looking at this existential threat to our country living in the White House. I think Islam is on the march and emboldened. I said years ago that if satan had a plan to destroy the world and attack Judaism and Christianity he would create a competing religion. I have considered Islam to be an instrument of satan and he is the great deceiver. That said, keep on telling the truth because those who don't actively work against evil work for evil.

    The battle over the First Amendment is over. American timidity in the face of bullying Islam is now clear. Not one single website on the internet (except one called "Bare Naked Islam") has had the simple willingness to publish the French cartoon mocking Muhammed or even provide a link to it (Correction: somebody elsewhere has said that Glenn Beck's website has established a link, so I'm wrong on the "not one' part – evidently there is one). The First Amendment is one of those God-given rights and the right to freedom of speech can only exist when people believe in it. Since no one (Correction: few people) anywhere is willing to speak freely about Islam, the First Amendment has had a shovel full of dirt thrown in its grave. Whether or not we will have the ability to stand up for our principles, or will cave in under pressure, remains to be seen.

    In the article, some Muslim boob is quoted as saying, “Americans may have the freedom to speak their mind, ultimately, they have no right to talk about Muslim holy issues." What the hell is this nonsense supposed to mean? It sounds like typical Islamic gobbledygook. If it were Pope Urban VIII saying this against Galileo, people would be all fluttery and upset. But since it's Islam speaking, we nod our heads sagely and say something like "He's got a point there." Boobs.

    • Kufar Dawg

      I believe Pamela Geller also posted the images of all the French cartoons (none of which were particularly funny to me).

      • tagalog

        Wow, now THERE'S a demonstration of widespread support for the right to freedom of speech and steadfastness in the face of religious intimidation. Bare Naked Islam, Glenn Beck, and Pamela Geller. I'm sure NBC News, ABC News, CBS News, Fox News, FrontLine Magazine, American Spectator, National Review, American Thinker, Conservative News Service, and all those other champions of our rights are right behind those three in spirit.

        Thanks for pointing that out.

        I didn't care much for the French cartoons either, but that's not the main thing, is it?

        • Kufar Dawg

          I see your points, and agree with them completely.

    • Jim_C

      I would suggest rather that this is the barest beginning, and that push has not yet come to shove. I understand people's frustration, but we should play the long game, here.

      If I were in the intelligence community, I would do what I could to a: promote much milder (less deliberately provocative) acts of satire aimed toward Islam; b: do everything I could to allow domestic Muslim leaders the spotlight for reaction.

      Let's face it: this topic is a matter of interest only to informed people willing to engage the issue (ie people who don't shy away from politics and religion). Otherwise, it's "don't bother me with negativity" reactionism, or at best, a typical American willingness to believe the best about people and their "faith."

      But put that faith's representatives front and center on questions of fundamental rights and see how much sympathy they elicit, then.

    • David

      Jihadwatch.org also printed the French cartoons.

      • tagalog

        Well, that news certainly makes some headway (about an inch on a mile-long track) toward convincing folks like me that most folks in the U.S. are gutsy in confronting the Islamic horde. Wow, jihadwatch – watch out, National Review!

  • Fred Baehr

    I am in complete agreement and here is a practical plan of action: make more videos and burn more Korans. That's it in a nutshell, but let me suggest a few things more. The videos might be more compelling if they reflect factual information about the religion of peace, so some study would be a good idea. Yet, it is more important that we act as free citizens speaking out as we please. Writers and makers of videos must decide what effects they want to achieve and act accordingly. I would only advise them to think about their intended audiences as well as their tone and message. The idea here is to influence others, beyond mere self gratification.
    As to the burning of Korans I suggest that it be burned together with other "holy" books in order to show that the real point is the 1st amendment. Burn a book you like along with you Koran. Love the Bible? Fine, burn it to show that the point is we can burn any books we want any time we want for any reason we want or for no reason at all in this world or the next. Love the flag? Good, burn it too because we are free to do it, and explain that the freedom to burn our own symbols of our own freedoms demonstrates the reality and the breadth of our freedoms. Do it thoughtfully, as a celebration of freedom and we can avoid joining them in dull hatred.
    A day should be arranged for burning Korans from coast to coast. Anyone for Turkey?

    • zionit

      yep. Tom Holland has already made such a documentary; Robert Spencer's 'Did Mo Exist' is even better. Reading 'Why we left islam' and checking out W Shoebat site as well as taking a walk near your local 'look i'm neked under this black tenters' backs up everything Eric Allen Bell has written here. PS. Most Muslims can't even read a halal (permissable) Koran because it's written in Arabic – Turks are Ottomans Iranians are Persians etc. Etc. and the only ball and chain they have in commmon is the fantasm of the koran (and fallen empires/'colonialism') which is proving to have about as much historical revelatory providence as say Hitlerism, Stalinism, or Polpotism etc.

    This article is Blogger's Persecution writ in giant crayon. Oh, Lord, help me. A man wrote some things on Facebook, didn't even register a website, and now he's Anne Frank. When will the hoaxes stop? First there was the fake movie which was really a trailer, then there was the fake fall from grace of a wayward filmmaker whose contributions to his Facebook page have been elevated to Martin Luther King's Letters from Birmingham Jail.

    Eric Allen "Bell" Edborg is trying to turn ten Facebook comments into an international incident. He is doing it with a media company behind him that receives thousands of dollars a year from the nexus of Islamophobia. This so white bread. Oh, my goodness. I am oppressed on Facebook.

      I suppose the thousands of death threats from your islamofascist brethren are just a hoax Abdul Al Taqiyya?
      The fact is EAB's life wouldn't be worth a plugged rupee in any islamofascist state if he were recognized — and your "moderate" muslimes and/or islamofascist law enforcement entities wouldn't be riding to his rescue either, they would probably be fingering him for your more violent, jihadi brethren.

    • nightspore

      Was Salman Rushdie also imagining things?

      I suppose a more important question is, do you really believe what you are saying? Or is this just an example of a certain kind of Liberal Derangement Syndrome, where any response no matter how inane makes the writer feel he's countered the argument and his worldview has been reaffirmed?

      A major feature of LDS involves seizing on one facet of a case (here, the threats on Facebook) and ignoring the rest. This in fact is a standard ploy, to the degree that LDS can almost be characterized by this manoeuvre.

      Are there any other facets?, you ask (I can even see the sneer) – well, go back and read the article again, and try not to be so Schlo.

      • Jihad (my real name)

        Dear brothers in humanity,

        I’m not a young man and I’m a Muslim as you can see. It really hurts when you see all this understanding and argument between followers of different religions. Reliogions are part of the human human history and culture and they all date back thousands of years ago. Life, values and thinking were different then. You can’t judge any religion today “literally” without trying to understand the historical, social, cultural, geographical and political background when that religion prevailed. This is why most religions have rabbis, monks, priests and clerics to help people understand the holy books. Have a look at all the teachings, stories and rituals in the Old Testaments and try to look at them though your “enlightened” eye and mind today, and you’ll with no doubt see how strange things “were”. This is why we have other books to explain, comment and paraphrase. In Islam, we have something a little bit similar, just a little bit, becuase a Muslim who can read the Quran in Arabic can understand the real meaning of the verses straight ahead. However, you might find somebody else saying that you can also understand this or that. This is why we have what we call “ijihad” in Islam where you can understand the deep sense of the verse or word if you know Arabic quite well. Nvertheless, the Quranic verse can NEVER mean something different or contradicting with the apparent meaning of that verse; the meaning should be in harmony with the real meanings of the individual words and phrases, and that includes similies, paradox or any form figurative language.

        Now, I have the right to wonder: Were all those who lived at the time prphet Mohammad stupid and understood no Arabic when they admired the Quran with its wisdom, beauty of expression, deep thinking and noble principles? Were they so stupid to believe that man living among them was a “noble man” when they “supposidly knew” he was a villain as depicted in that “surreal mix of distorted facts and fabrications?” This is impossible because nobody would have believed such bluff from a villain or somebody whom they do not hold deep respect for. Why should they? History does not lie. As Arabic, we know this and we understand this. Many historians in ancient times and today talked about “Mohammed” in a scientific and honest way; they can’t be wrong. He can’t be a villain, can he?

        Allow me to quote some of the verses of the Quran here. These verces talk about peace. Let’s have a look:
        2:256 “Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth has been made clear from error. Whoever rejects false worship and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks. And Allah hears and knows all things.”

        16:82 But if they turn away from you, (O Prophet remember that) your only duty is a clear delivery of the Message (entrusted to you).

        6:107 Yet if God had so willed, they would not have ascribed Divinity to aught besides him; hence, We have not made you their keeper, nor are you (of your own choice) a guardian over them.

        4:79, 80 (Say to everyone of them,) ‘Whatever good betides you is from God and whatever evil betides you is from your own self and that We have (O Prophet) sent you to mankind only as a messenger and all sufficing is God as witness. Whoso obeys the Messenger, he indeed obeys God. And for those who turn away, We have not sent you as a keeper.”

        11:28 (Noah to his people) He (Noah) said “O my people! think over it! If 1 act upon a clear direction from my Lord who has bestowed on me from Himself the Merciful talent of seeing the right way, a way which you cannot see for yourself, does it follow that we can force you to take the right path when you definitely decline to take it?°

        17:53, 54 And tell my servants that they should speak in a most kindly manner (unto those who do not share their beliefs). Verily, Satan is always ready to stir up discord between men; for verily; Satan is mans foe …. Hence, We have not sent you (Unto men O Prophet) with power to determine their Faith.

        21:107 to 109 (O Prophet?) ‘We have not sent you except to be a mercy to all mankind:” Declare, “Verily, what is revealed to me is this, your God is the only One God, so is it not up to you to bow down to Him?’ But if they turn away then say, “I have delivered the Truth in a manner clear to one and all, and I know not whether the promised hour (of Judgment) is near or far.”

        22:67 To every people have We appointed ceremonial rites (of prayer) which they observe; therefore, let them not wrangle over this matter with you, but bid them to turn to your Lord (since that is the main objective of religion). You indeed are rightly guided. But if they still dispute you in this matter, (then say,) `God best knows (the value of) what you do.”

        88:21, 22; also see 24:54 And so, (O Prophet!) exhort them your task is only to exhort; you cannot compel them to believe.

        48:28 He it is Who has sent forth His Messenger with the (task of spreading) Guidance and the Religion of Truth, to the end that tie make it prevail over every (false) religion, and none can bear witness to the Truth as God does.

        36:16, 17 (Three Messengers to their people)Said (the Messengers), “Our Sustainer knows that we have indeed been sent unto you, but we are not bound to more than clearly deliver the Message entrusted to us.’

        39:41 Assuredly, We have sent down the Book to you in right form for the good of man. Whoso guided himself by it does so to his own advantage, and whoso turns away from it does so at his own loss. You certainly are not their keeper.

        42:6, 48 And whoso takes for patrons others besides God, over them does God keep a watch. Mark, you are not a keeper over them. But if they turn aside from you (do not get disheartened), for We have not sent you to be a keeper over them; your task is but to preach ….

        64:12 Obey God then and obey the Messenger, but if you turn away (no blame shall attach to our Messenger), for the duty of Our Messenger is just to deliver the message.

        67:25, 26 And they ask, “When shall the promise be fulfilled if you speak the Truth?” Say, “The knowledge of it is verily with God alone, and verily I am but a plain warner.”

        60:8 Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.

        60:9 Allah only forbids you, with regard to those who fight you for (your) Faith, and drive you out of your homes, and support (others) in driving you out, from turning to them (for friendship and protection). It is such as turn to them (in these circumstances), that do wrong.

        As a Muslim, I understand this quite well. “Jihad” which means going to other countries to convert people to Islam by force does NOT exist now–it simply doesn’t, and don’t believe anybody who says otherwise. Look at this saying by prophet Mohammed: “The highest degree of jihad in the eye of Allah is saying the truth that should be told to a tyrant ruler (meaning giving him advice to bring him back to right track.” Countless are the occasions were Islam teaches similar ideals and teaches good behaviours among humans, not only Muslims. Look at Omar bin Al-Khattab, the second Khalif, shedding tears when he say a poor old Jew begging in the market. He was so gentle to him and fixed a salary for him from the “Muslim Fund”. Doing this, he was teaching his brother Muslims, including myself, how to deal with other people, other nations, and follwers of other religions. Again, when Omar talked to soldiers going war, what did he tell them? He told them not to kill old men or women or hermits or priests worshiping God in their hermitage. He also told them not to kill anybody who doesn’t fight them because killing “a soul” without having killed another soul or without deserving to be killed means kill all humanity. He even told them not cut a tree or destroy any plants because people their need their plants and trees for their living.

        This is the sort of Islam I can see as an Arab Muslim, it’s not the Islam somebody is trying to implant in other people minds, and mine!!! Unfortunately some people seem to be talking about some other Islam, not ours!! Our Islam is different . . . it’s merciful, considerate, loving and humble, and so was our prophet Mohammed.

        One thing remains worth mentioning here, and that is the interference of politics, colonolization and military might in this issue by trying to persecute and suppress the peoples of the Middle East, peoples who happen to be Muslims. Believe me or not, this the main cause of miunderstanding and conflict, and because we are dealing with Muslims in those countries, a shift was made to talk about Islam instead because Islam simply means Muslims here.

        And now, so as not to be misunderstood, I want to say that Islam also rejects tyrany, persecution, and injustice, nomatter who inflected this. In this case Islam considers opposing and fighting a tyrant, a persecutor or an occupier of our land “jihad”, which means we need to resist and fight back. Driving the enemy out of our country is also “jihad”, don’t you agree with me?

        This is only a hint of an ocean of facts that some people miss or misunderstand or misinterpret when it comes to Islam and Muslims.

        God bless you all,

        Jihad Jayyousi

    Dear Eric,

    How are you making out financially? Has anyone started a fund for your basic needs that we can donate to? Take a look at sonofhamas.wordpress.com to see his plans for a BIG movie about Mohammed, and for his amazing quran.com project. (If you've never read his book, it's also amazing.) Also, his talk about people on the other side being so committed that they jump in with no caution must apply to you, too–do be careful and yes, stay away from those windows for now–we all need your leadership on this side of the valley of tears.

    Somehow,this doesn't surprise me. Not in the least.

    Bravo, Eric! Never back down…we will win as the truth is on our side. Also, we will see Europe go down within the next 20 years.

    Muslims are people who sick their asses in the air five times a day. And they seek the death penalty for those who "fail" in this supposedly holy duty. Personally, I think Muslims need a hand grenade suppository. I'll be happy to pull the pin.

      I seem to remember a guy in either Iraq or Iran who was missed at his mosque and questioned as to why (since he obviously wasn't sick) when he said something to the effect of the business of his daily prayers were between allah and himself he was beaten to death in the streets.

    Another great, factual article Eric. Keep up the offense. Playing defense does not win many conflicts.

    I'm still curious as to why there are 15 zero's on that bounty poster. That would be 1 QUADRILLION, or maybe only 10 TRILLION if the last two zeros are for the cents. How is that possible? Do they count Rupees differently than any other currency? Huh?

    Eric,time to sue CAIR,if you cant afford it, well we can all pitch in a couple bucks to drag that terrorist trash through the wringer fo you..

    See Robert Spencer's "Did Mohammed Exist?" He argues that the religion, with the phony history of "Mohammed,
    was made up by two competing Arab warring groups. The Arabs by the eighth century had conquered from Spain to India. They noticed that competing groups had religions – Christianity in Europe and Zoroastrianism in Persia. So they made up their religion. That is why Mohammedanism is so militaristic – it was made up by warriors.

    There is nothing in Islam not found in any tribal religion/culture….It's spread is a function of the disintegration of the advanced countries of the West….just a the emergence of the Radical Left is a symptom of the same thing.

      Bollocks. Buddhism, Judaism and Christianity are three religions whose ideologies don't call for the worldwide extermination or subjugation of anyone.

    The 1st Amendment exists, in force.
    It is today, tomorrow and always.

      A nice thought, but the Constitution and Bill of Rights are only as valid as the PEOPLE willing to DEFEND them.

    Eric, you are a hero. Thank you for being so courageous and outspoken. It's truly amazing.

    Are you in an FBI-provided safe house? Can you tell us anything more about how the FBI became involved and what they have done to help you? (Without revealing anything that would compromise anyone's security.)

    I'm curious about the safe house because the FBI apparently did not offer Molly Norris one — and I guess there must be a number of folks out there on the death list of Islam — but I haven't heard that the FBI offered them safe houses. Why to you? Is it because of the worldwide rioting lately, the murder of the ambassador, combined with the recent publication of a price on your head? Maybe it's that you are perhaps the most blunt of the public Islam critics. You don't pull any punches. So that might piss off the enemy and make you high on the list.

    I wonder if you will make a movie out of all this at some point.

    • Kufar Dawg

      For all we know, Molly Norris could be dead and the present regime complicit in it.

    • livingengine

      Hi treah,

      I see you, like many of us, made the mistake of taking Eric at his word, and so, being mislead into thinking Eric was under FBI protection.

      Of course, he is not.

      He does this sort of thing too much, and it is now fair to call it part of a pattern.

      Take the bounty for instance.

      It is not for ten million rupees. It is for one quadrillion rupees, which is more than the US national deficit.

      Ridiculous!

      The poster doesn't make him look fat, it makes him look dumb, and hostile. And, that's what he is.

  • southrngirl77

    Eric, so glad to see this. I've noticed you've not posted on FB for 11 days and when I realized that, I was very, very worried. Stand strong my friend, it is warriors like you, like me, and others that will finally confront and neuter this Religion of EVIL.

    I thought the First Amendment died when the Patriot Act was born.

  • GALAXY786

    I AM DISAGREE TO THAT PAKISTANI POLITICIAN WHO HAS ANNOUNCED FOR AN AMOUNT PRIZE TO KILLING THE INSOLENT OF THE PROPHET, BECAUSE ISLAM DOES NOT ALLOW OF SUCH ACT BUT TEACHES US FOR SPREADING THE PEACEFUL MESSAGE OF ISLAM WITH LOVE AND PATIENCE, EVEN OUR PROPHET MUHAMMAD PBUH NEVER HARM TO ANY INFIDEL HE ONLY LOVED TO PEOPLE AND TEACH THEM HONESTY TO LIVING HONESTLY, BUT I HAVE JUST ONE QUESTION TO MR ERIC ALLEN BELL, A MAN WHO HAS NO RELIGION NOR BELIEVE IN ANY RELIGION HOW CAN HE SAY A LOGICAL OR WEIGHT FULL THING ABOUT ANY RELIGION. DON'T YOU THINK HE IS JUST CONFUSING AND PROVOKING THE PEOPLE. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT, MR ERIC SEEMS CIVILIZED BUT SORRY TO SAY HE DOESN'T BEHAVE LIKE SENSIBLE AND CIVILIZED AS HE PRETEND TO BE,NOW A DAYS HE IS LOOKING LIKE A PUPPET WHO IS PERFORMING ON THE COMMANDS OF A HIDDEN COMMANDER. I AM AMAZED THAT IF ERIC BELIEVES IN THESE FAKE AHADITH(THE SAYINGS OF THE PROPHET PBUH) WHICH ARE WRITTEN BY UN KNOWN FACTIONAL NON MUSLIMS, SO WHY HE DOESN'T BELIEVE IN AUTHENTIC AHADITH THEN, WHY HE LIKES THE MESSES AND WANT TO CREATE THE MESSES,ERIC SAYS THAT I WILL PROVE THAT ISLAM IS WRONG AND I HAVE READ THIS AND THAT AND HIM OR HER OR QURAN THAT NUMBER OF SURAH AND THAT NUMBER OF VERSE, HE READS ALL THE CONTENT ABOUT ISLAM EVEN FAKE OR (AUTHENTIC LIKE QURAN) BUT HE UNDERSTANDS THESE THINGS ACCORDING TO HIS CHOICE NOT ACCORDING THE REALITY WHICH HOLY ALLAH HAS SAID FOR ALL THE HUMANITY AND WHICH IS INDEED VERY EASY AND SIMPLE TO UNDERSTAND,HERE I WOULD SAY JUST ONE QUOTE BY SOCRATES,THE ONLY TRUE WISDOM IS IN KNOWING YOU KNOW NOTHING. MR ERIC PLEASE OPEN YOUR MIND AND HEART ALSO :) THANKS

    Maybe a NEW 'Crusade' from the 500AD ..we will set em straight. SICK of Catholics being made the bad guys in that fiasco!

  • livingengine

    Eric Allen Bell is NOT a defender of the First Amendment. He is not a defender of free speech, and he is not a defender freedom of Religion.

    When Eric Allen Bell tried to get a Muslim women to renounce Islam on the 2/29/12 edition of the Jamie Glazov Show, he was not defending the First Amendment.

    When Eric Allen Bell was telling his followers to provoke others into saying something that could be used later in a court of law, he was not defending the First Amendment.

    Eric Allen Bell is a liar, a fraud, a demagogue, and a con man

    There is no reason for FPM to be a partner in Eric Allen Bell’s lies.

  • livingengine

    Here is Eric Allen Bell defaming me, and turning his mob against because I am telling the truth about him.
