    The United States recently saw its first Muslim-majority city council elected in Hamtramck, Michigan.

    But voters in Britain’s capital and largest city just delivered an even bigger prize to Islam.

    LONDON ELECTED SADIQ KHAN AS ITS MAYOR ON FRIDAY, MAKING HIM THE MOST POWERFUL MUSLIM POLITICIAN IN THE WESTERN WORLD.

    Kahn’s rise is a testimony to the fact that major sections of the city are already close to 50 percent Muslim, and critics say many of its non-Muslim residents seem comfortable with turning the top elected post over to a man with questionable connections to terrorists.

    In the May 2005 general election he moved to the national stage after winning the vote to become the Member of Parliament for Tooting.

    In doing so, he became the first MP of Islamic faith to win election in London.

    A Timely Opinion on ISIS Fanatics

    snippet…

    Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public
    schools in Ontario , and, yes, in Ottawa , too, while the Lord’s
    Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The Islamic way may be
    peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.’

    snippet…

    ‘The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the
    fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting
    wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or
    tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire
    continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or
    honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the
    fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and
    homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become
    suicide bombers.’

    The Bottom line….

    The full unedited text

    Received , December 19, 2015 8:35 AM
    Subject: ,,,,,, A German’s View

    Shabbot shalom,
    How this piece will affect you is not in my hands. I hope it’s wisdom does have its good effect. Otherwise we remain more dangerously asleep then we had before we read it. We either respond to our first nature, and dig in our heals to not move, or we meditate, asking favor from our engaging LORD, our Father, as to our right part in the encroaching war that is more boldly consuming the world politic with bloody results.
    To each one of us a response, wisely guided by His Spirit, is required, and you will know that a response is in no uncertain terms required as you read this man’s observations of the certain and consistent diabolical results that occur upon our necks by our personal responses. Each one of us, to prevent the occurring encroach of violence is called on to engage in this war wisely.
    Thus the future is not in leaders hands, but in our own. Have we not heard, that when good men do nothing, we encourage violence against the innocent? There is no face sitting, as this article shouts from the roof top. To think otherwise we remain as given over to our enemies as did the fallen who took no heed before us.
    What therefore is our part? If we can not ask that question without full reverence in light of our maker, of what are we but spent salt waiting to be trodden under, as the billions who continued in intoxicating inertia- the deadly drug, our enemies ever succeed by, “when good men do nothing”. Eventually only Maker, He, like our enemy, never sleeps, can help those whose talents are purposefully not buried by our default mode, our violent indifference. Sleep is hate in this war as in all wars. Our avoidance is a hateful purposed response.
    Love in His purpose, for our re-engagement for that is the only thing that love looks like,
    Someone else wrote of this man’s observations in part,

    “This is one of the best explanations of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear- (by) Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.”
    ‘Very few people were true Nazis,’ he said, ‘but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care.
    I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost
    control, and the end of the world had come.’

    ‘My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies
    destroyed my factories.’ ”
    ‘We are told again and again by ‘experts’ and ‘talking heads’ that Islam is a
    religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in
    peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely
    irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff meant to make us feel better, and meant to
    somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name
    of Islam.’

    ‘The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the
    fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting
    wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or
    tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire
    continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or
    honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the
    fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and
    homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become
    suicide bombers.’
    ‘The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the ‘silent
    majority,’ is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of
    Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were
    responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.’

    ‘The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering
    sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an
    orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were ‘peace loving’?

    ‘History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers
    of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:
    peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving
    Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because like my friend
    from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and
    the end of their world will have begun.’

    ‘Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans,
    Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died
    because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late.’
    ‘Now Islamic prayers have been introduced in Toronto and other public
    schools in Ontario , and, yes, in Ottawa , too, while the Lord’s
    Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The Islamic way may be
    peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in.’

    ‘In Australia , and indeed in many countries around the world, many of the most
    commonly consumed food items have the halal emblem on them. Just look at the
    back of some of the most popular chocolate bars, and at other food items in your
    local supermarket. Food on aircraft have the halal emblem just to appease the
    privileged minority who are now rapidly expanding within the nation’s shores.’
    ‘In the U.K, the Muslim communities refuse to integrate and there are now dozens
    of “no-go” zones within major cities across the country that the police force
    dare not intrude upon. Sharia law prevails there, because the Muslim
    community in those areas refuse to acknowledge British law.’

    ‘As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that
    counts – the fanatics who threaten our way of life.’

    Lastly,
    anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email
    without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the
    problems to expand.

    Extend
    yourself a bit and send this on. Let us hope that thousands world-wide
    read this, think about it, and send it on before it’s too late, and we are
    silenced because we were silent!!!

    The Program on Extremism identified at least 300 active Twitter supporters of ISIS who appear to be inside the U.S. But with over 900 active investigations in all 50 states, researchers said there are almost certainly more than 300 Americans enamored by ISIS and radicalized toward supporting the violence that defines the foreign terrorist group.

    Text of President Obama’s 2015 State of the Union address …

    Mr. Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, my fellow Americans:
    THE SHADOW OF CRISIS HAS PASSED, AND THE STATE OF THE UNION IS STRONG.
    AMERICA, FOR ALL THAT WE’VE ENDURED; FOR ALL THE GRIT AND HARD WORK REQUIRED TO COME BACK; FOR ALL THE TASKS THAT LIE AHEAD,
    KNOW THIS:
    NO CHALLENGE – POSES A GREATER THREAT TO FUTURE GENERATIONS THAN CLIMATE CHANGE. 2014 was the planet’s warmest year on record. Now, one year doesn’t make a trend, but this does – 14 of the 15 warmest years on record have all fallen in the first 15 years of this century.
    In two weeks, I will send this Congress a budget filled with ideas that are practical, not partisan. And in the months ahead, I’LL CRISSCROSS THE COUNTRY MAKING A CASE FOR THOSE IDEAS.
    WILL WE APPROACH THE WORLD FEARFUL and reactive, dragged into costly conflicts that strain our military and set back our standing? Or will we lead wisely, USING ALL ELEMENTS OF OUR POWER TO DEFEAT NEW THREATS AND PROTECT OUR PLANET?
    ————————————————————————————
    We are fifteen years into this new century. FIFTEEN YEARS THAT DAWNED WITH TERROR TOUCHING OUR SHORES; THAT UNFOLDED WITH A NEW GENERATION FIGHTING TWO LONG AND COSTLY WARS; that saw a vicious recession spread across our nation and the world. It has been, and still is, a hard time for many.
    THE SHADOW OF CRISIS HAS PASSED, AND THE STATE OF THE UNION IS STRONG.
    TONIGHT, FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 9/11, our combat mission in Afghanistan is over. Six years ago, nearly 180,000 American troops served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Today, fewer than 15,000 remain. And we salute the courage and sacrifice of every man and woman in this 9/11 Generation who has served to keep us safe. We are humbled and grateful for your service.

    ——————————————————-
    MY FIRST DUTY AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF IS TO DEFEND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. In doing so, the question is not whether America leads in the world, but how. When we make rash decisions, reacting to the headlines instead of using our heads; when the first response to a challenge is to send in our military – then we risk getting drawn into unnecessary conflicts, and neglect the broader strategy we need for a safer, more prosperous world. That’s what our enemies want us to do.
    I believe in a smarter kind of American leadership. We lead best when we combine military power with strong diplomacy; when we leverage our power with coalition building; when we don’t let our fears blind us to the opportunities that this new century presents. That’s exactly what we’re doing right now – and around the globe, it is making a difference.

    ————————————————
    FIRST, WE STAND UNITED WITH PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WHO’VE BEEN TARGETED BY TERRORISTS – FROM A SCHOOL IN PAKISTAN

    TO THE STREETS OF PARIS.

    WE WILL CONTINUE TO HUNT DOWN TERRORISTS AND DISMANTLE THEIR NETWORKS, AND WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ACT UNILATERALLY, AS WE’VE DONE RELENTLESSLY SINCE I TOOK OFFICE TO TAKE OUT TERRORISTS WHO POSE A DIRECT THREAT TO US AND OUR ALLIES.
    Instead of Americans patrolling the valleys of Afghanistan, WE’VE TRAINED THEIR SECURITY FORCES, who’ve now taken the lead, and we’ve honored our troops’ sacrifice by supporting that country’s first democratic transition. Instead of sending large ground forces overseas, we’re partnering with nations from South Asia to North Africa TO DENY SAFE HAVEN TO TERRORISTS WHO THREATEN AMERICA. In Iraq and Syria, AMERICAN LEADERSHIP – INCLUDING OUR MILITARY POWER – IS STOPPING ISIL’S ADVANCE. Instead of getting dragged into another ground war in the Middle East, we are leading a broad coalition, including Arab nations, to degrade and ultimately destroy this terrorist group. We’re also supporting a moderate opposition in Syria that can help us in this effort, and ASSISTING PEOPLE EVERYWHERE WHO STAND UP TO THE BANKRUPT IDEOLOGY OF VIOLENT EXTREMISM. This effort will take time. It will require focus. But we will succeed.

    AND TONIGHT, I CALL ON THIS CONGRESS TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT WE ARE UNITED IN THIS MISSION BY PASSING A RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE THE USE OF FORCE AGAINST ISIL.

    ——————————————————————–
    Second, we are demonstrating the power of American strength and diplomacy. We’re upholding the principle that bigger nations can’t bully the small – by opposing Russian aggression, supporting Ukraine’s democracy, and reassuring our NATO allies. Last year, as we were doing the hard work of imposing sanctions along with our allies,

    SOME SUGGESTED THAT MR. PUTIN’S AGGRESSION WAS A MASTERFUL DISPLAY OF STRATEGY AND STRENGTH. WELL, TODAY, IT IS AMERICA THAT STANDS STRONG AND UNITED WITH OUR ALLIES, WHILE RUSSIA IS ISOLATED, WITH ITS ECONOMY IN TATTERS.

    ———————————————————-
    So the verdict is clear. Middle-class economics works. Expanding opportunity works. And these policies will continue to work, as long as politics don’t get in the way. We can’t slow down businesses or put our economy at risk with government shutdowns or fiscal showdowns. We can’t put the security of families at risk by taking away their health insurance, or unraveling the new rules on Wall Street,
    OR REFIGHTING PAST BATTLES ON IMMIGRATION WHEN WE’VE GOT A SYSTEM TO FIX.
    AND IF A BILL COMES TO MY DESK THAT TRIES TO DO ANY OF THESE THINGS, IT WILL EARN MY VETO.
    That’s how America leads – not with bluster, but with persistent, steady resolve.

    The State of the Union 1941-2015

    ————————————————————————————————–

    THE IDIOTS LEARNING GUIDE TO  HISTORY 1941

    AKA also know as ……

    Four Freedoms speech

    1941 Every realist knows that the democratic way of life is at this moment being directly assailed in every part of the world—assailed either by arms, or by secret spreading of poisonous propaganda by those who seek to destroy unity and promote discord in nations that are still at peace.

    1941 The first phase of the invasion of this Hemisphere would not be the landing of regular troops. The necessary strategic points would be occupied by secret agents and by their dupes — and great numbers of them are already here, and in Latin America.

    1941 As long as the aggressor nations maintain the offensive, they — not we — will choose the time and the place and the method of their attack.

    1941 That is why every member of the Executive Branch of the Government and every member of the Congress face great responsibility; great accountability.

    1941 That is why the future of all the American Republics is today in serious danger.

    1941 As a nation, we may take pride in the fact that we are softhearted; but we cannot afford to be soft-headed.

    1941 No realistic American can expect from a dictator’s peace international generosity, or return of true independence, or world disarmament, or freedom of expression, or freedom of religion — or even good business.

    1941 Such a peace would bring no security for us or for our neighbors. “Those, who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    1941 We must always be wary of those who with sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal preach the “ism” of appeasement.

    1941 We must especially beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings of the American eagle in order to feather their own nests.

    1941 First, by an impressive expression of the public will and without regard to partisanship, we are committed to all-inclusive national defense.

    1941 That is why this Annual Message to the Congress is unique in our history.

    ——————————————————————————————–

    The Four Freedoms were goals articulated by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt on January 6, 1941. In an address known as the Four Freedoms speech (technically the 1941 State of the Union address), he proposed four fundamental freedoms that people “everywhere in the world” ought to enjoy:

    1941 The best way of dealing with the few slackers or trouble makers in our midst is, first, to shame them by patriotic example, and, if that fails, to use the sovereignty of Government to save Government.

     1941 As a nation, we may take pride in the fact that we are softhearted; but we cannot afford to be soft-headed.

    ———————————————————–

    1941 Since the beginning of our American history, we have been engaged in change — in a perpetual peaceful revolution — a revolution which goes on steadily, quietly adjusting itself to changing conditions — without the concentration camp or the quick-lime in the ditch. The world order which we seek is the cooperation of free countries, working together in a friendly, civilized society.

    ————————————————————

    Full text of….The State of the Union 1941

    Four Freedoms speech- 6 January 1941.

    I address you, the Members of this new Congress, at a moment unprecedented in the history of the Union. I use the word “unprecedented,” because at no previous time has American security been as seriously threatened from without as it is today.

    Since the permanent formation of our Government under the Constitution, in 1789, most of the periods of crisis in our history have related to our domestic affairs. Fortunately, only one of these—the four-year War Between the States—ever threatened our national unity. Today, thank God, one hundred and thirty million Americans, in forty-eight States, have forgotten points of the compass in our national unity.

    It is true that prior to 1914 the United States often had been disturbed by events in other Continents. We had even engaged in two wars with European nations and in a number of undeclared wars in the West Indies, in the Mediterranean and in the Pacific for the maintenance of American rights and for the principles of peaceful commerce. But in no case had a serious threat been raised against our national safety or our continued independence.

    What I seek to convey is the historic truth that the United States as a nation has at all times maintained clear, definite opposition, to any attempt to lock us in behind an ancient Chinese wall while the procession of civilization went past. Today, thinking of our children and of their children, we oppose enforced isolation for ourselves or for any other part of the Americas.

    That determination of ours, extending over all these years, was proved, for example, during the quarter century of wars following the French Revolution.

    While the Napoleonic struggles did threaten interests of the United States because of the French foothold in the West Indies and in Louisiana, and while we engaged in the War of 1812 to vindicate our right to peaceful trade, it is nevertheless clear that neither France nor Great Britain, nor any other nation, was aiming at domination of the whole world.

    In like fashion from 1815 to 1914 — ninety-nine years — no single war in Europe or in Asia constituted a real threat against our future or against the future of any other American nation.

    Except in the Maximilian interlude in Mexico, no foreign power sought to establish itself in this Hemisphere; and the strength of the British fleet in the Atlantic has been a friendly strength. It is still a friendly strength.

    Even when the World War broke out in 1914, it seemed to contain only small threat of danger to our own American future. But, as time went on, the American people began to visualize what the downfall of democratic nations might mean to our own democracy.

    We need not overemphasize imperfections in the Peace of Versailles. We need not harp on failure of the democracies to deal with problems of world reconstruction. We should remember that the Peace of 1919 was far less unjust than the kind of “pacification” which began even before Munich, and which is being carried on under the new order of tyranny that seeks to spread over every continent today. The American people have unalterably set their faces against that tyranny.

    Every realist knows that the democratic way of life is at this moment being directly assailed in every part of the world—assailed either by arms, or by secret spreading of poisonous propaganda by those who seek to destroy unity and promote discord in nations that are still at peace.

    During sixteen long months this assault has blotted out the whole pattern of democratic life in an appalling number of independent nations, great and small. The assailants are still on the march, threatening other nations, great and small.

    Therefore, as your President, performing my constitutional duty to “give to the Congress information of the state of the Union,” I find it, unhappily, necessary to report that the future and the safety of our country and of our democracy are overwhelmingly involved in events far beyond our borders.

    Armed defense of democratic existence is now being gallantly waged in four continents. If that defense fails, all the population and all the resources of Europe and Asia and Africa and Australasia will be dominated by conquerors and let us remember that the total of those populations and their resources in those four continents greatly exceeds the sum total of the population and the resources of the whole of the Western Hemisphere — many times over.

    In times like these it is immature — and incidentally, untrue — for anybody to brag that an unprepared America, single-handed, and with one hand tied behind its back, can hold off the whole world.

    No realistic American can expect from a dictator’s peace international generosity, or return of true independence, or world disarmament, or freedom of expression, or freedom of religion — or even good business.

    Such a peace would bring no security for us or for our neighbors. “Those, who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    As a nation, we may take pride in the fact that we are softhearted; but we cannot afford to be soft-headed.

    We must always be wary of those who with sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal preach the “ism” of appeasement.

    We must especially beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings of the American eagle in order to feather their own nests.

    I have recently pointed out how quickly the tempo of modern warfare could bring into our very midst the physical attack which we must eventually expect if the dictator nations win this war.

    There is much loose talk of our immunity from immediate and direct invasion from across the seas. Obviously, as long as the British Navy retains its power, no such danger exists. Even if there were no British Navy, it is not probable that any enemy would be stupid enough to attack us by landing troops in the United States from across thousands of miles of ocean, until it had acquired strategic bases from which to operate.

    But we learn much from the lessons of the past years in Europe — particularly the lesson of Norway, whose essential seaports were captured by treachery and surprise built up over a series of years.

    The first phase of the invasion of this Hemisphere would not be the landing of regular troops. The necessary strategic points would be occupied by secret agents and by their dupes — and great numbers of them are already here, and in Latin America.

    As long as the aggressor nations maintain the offensive, they — not we — will choose the time and the place and the method of their attack.

    That is why the future of all the American Republics is today in serious danger.

    That is why this Annual Message to the Congress is unique in our history.

    That is why every member of the Executive Branch of the Government and every member of the Congress face great responsibility; great accountability.

    The need of the moment is that our actions and our policy should be devoted primarily — almost exclusively — to meeting this foreign peril. For all our domestic problems are now a part of the great emergency.

    Just as our national policy in internal affairs has been based upon a decent respect for the rights and the dignity of all of our fellow men within our gates, so our national policy in foreign affairs has been based on a decent respect for the rights and the dignity of all nations, large and small. And the justice of morality must and will win in the end.

    Our national policy is this:

    First, by an impressive expression of the public will and without regard to partisanship, we are committed to all-inclusive national defense.

    Secondly, by an impressive expression of the public will and without regard to partisanship, we are committed to full support of all those resolute peoples everywhere who are resisting aggression and are thereby keeping war away from our Hemisphere. By this support, we express our determination that the democratic cause shall prevail; and we strengthen the defense and the security of our own nation.

    Third, by an impressive expression of the public will and without regard to partisanship, we are committed to the proposition that principles of morality and considerations for our own security will never permit us to acquiesce in a peace dictated by aggressors and sponsored by appeasers. We know that enduring peace cannot be bought at the cost of other people’s freedom.

    In the recent national election there was no substantial difference between the two great parties in respect to that national policy. No issue was fought out on this line before the American electorate. And today it is abundantly evident that American citizens everywhere are demanding and supporting speedy and complete action in recognition of obvious danger.

    Therefore, the immediate need is a swift and driving increase in our armament production.

    Leaders of industry and labor have responded to our summons. Goals of speed have been set. In some cases these goals are being reached ahead of time; in some cases we are on schedule; in other cases there are slight but not serious delays; and in some cases — and I am sorry to say very important cases — we are all concerned by the slowness of the accomplishment of our plans.

    The Army and Navy, however, have made substantial progress during the past year. Actual experience is improving and speeding up our methods of production with every passing day. And today’s best is not good enough for tomorrow.

    I am not satisfied with the progress thus far made. The men in charge of the program represent the best in training, in ability, and in patriotism. They are not satisfied with the progress thus far made. None of us will be satisfied until the job is done.

    No matter whether the original goal was set too high or too low, our objective is quicker and better results.

    To give you two illustrations:

    We are behind schedule in turning out finished airplanes; we are working day and night to solve the innumerable problems and to catch up.

    We are ahead of schedule in building warships but we are working to get even further ahead of that schedule.

    To change a whole nation from a basis of peacetime production of implements of peace to a basis of wartime production of implements of war is no small task. And the greatest difficulty comes at the beginning of the program, when new tools, new plant facilities, new assembly lines, and new ship ways must first be constructed before the actual materiel begins to flow steadily and speedily from them.

    The Congress, of course, must rightly keep itself informed at all times of the progress of the program. However, there is certain information, as the Congress itself will readily recognize, which, in the interests of our own security and those of the nations that we are supporting, must of needs be kept in confidence.

    New circumstances are constantly begetting new needs for our safety. I shall ask this Congress for greatly increased new appropriations and authorizations to carry on what we have begun.

    I also ask this Congress for authority and for funds sufficient to manufacture additional munitions and war supplies of many kinds, to be turned over to those nations which are now in actual war with aggressor nations.

    Our most useful and immediate role is to act as an arsenal for them as well as for ourselves. They do not need man power, but they do need billions of dollars worth of the weapons of defense.

    The time is near when they will not be able to pay for them all in ready cash. We cannot, and we will not, tell them that they must surrender, merely because of present inability to pay for the weapons which we know they must have.

    I do not recommend that we make them a loan of dollars with which to pay for these weapons — a loan to be repaid in dollars.

    I recommend that we make it possible for those nations to continue to obtain war materials in the United States, fitting their orders into our own program. Nearly all their materiel would, if the time ever came, be useful for our own defense.

    Taking counsel of expert military and naval authorities, considering what is best for our own security, we are free to decide how much should be kept here and how much should be sent abroad to our friends who by their determined and heroic resistance are giving us time in which to make ready our own defense.

    For what we send abroad, we shall be repaid within a reasonable time following the close of hostilities, in similar materials, or, at our option, in other goods of many kinds, which they can produce and which we need.

    Let us say to the democracies: “We Americans are vitally concerned in your defense of freedom. We are putting forth our energies, our resources and our organizing powers to give you the strength to regain and maintain a free world. We shall send you, in ever-increasing numbers, ships, planes, tanks, guns. This is our purpose and our pledge.”

    In fulfillment of this purpose we will not be intimidated by the threats of dictators that they will regard as a breach of international law or as an act of war our aid to the democracies which dare to resist their aggression. Such aid is not an act of war, even if a dictator should unilaterally proclaim it so to be.

    When the dictators, if the dictators, are ready to make war upon us, they will not wait for an act of war on our part. They did not wait for Norway or Belgium or the Netherlands to commit an act of war.

    Their only interest is in a new one-way international law, which lacks mutuality in its observance, and, therefore, becomes an instrument of oppression.

    The happiness of future generations of Americans may well depend upon how effective and how immediate we can make our aid felt. No one can tell the exact character of the emergency situations that we may be called upon to meet. The Nation’s hands must not be tied when the Nation’s life is in danger.

    We must all prepare to make the sacrifices that the emergency — almost as serious as war itself — demands. Whatever stands in the way of speed and efficiency in defense preparations must give way to the national need.

    A free nation has the right to expect full cooperation from all groups. A free nation has the right to look to the leaders of business, of labor, and of agriculture to take the lead in stimulating effort, not among other groups but within their own groups.

    The best way of dealing with the few slackers or trouble makers in our midst is, first, to shame them by patriotic example, and, if that fails, to use the sovereignty of Government to save Government.

    As men do not live by bread alone, they do not fight by armaments alone. Those who man our defenses, and those behind them who build our defenses, must have the stamina and the courage which come from unshakable belief in the manner of life which they are defending. The mighty action that we are calling for cannot be based on a disregard of all things worth fighting for.

    The Nation takes great satisfaction and much strength from the things which have been done to make its people conscious of their individual stake in the preservation of democratic life in America. Those things have toughened the fibre of our people, have renewed their faith and strengthened their devotion to the institutions we make ready to protect.

    Certainly this is no time for any of us to stop thinking about the social and economic problems which are the root cause of the social revolution which is today a supreme factor in the world.

    For there is nothing mysterious about the foundations of a healthy and strong democracy. The basic things expected by our people of their political and economic systems are simple. They are:

    Equality of opportunity for youth and for others.

    Jobs for those who can work.

    Security for those who need it.

    The ending of special privilege for the few.

    The preservation of civil liberties for all.

    The enjoyment of the fruits of scientific progress in a wider and constantly rising standard of living.

    These are the simple, basic things that must never be lost sight of in the turmoil and unbelievable complexity of our modern world. The inner and abiding strength of our economic and political systems is dependent upon the degree to which they fulfill these expectations.

    Many subjects connected with our social economy call for immediate improvement.

    As examples:

    We should bring more citizens under the coverage of old-age pensions and unemployment insurance.

    We should widen the opportunities for adequate medical care.

    We should plan a better system by which persons deserving or needing gainful employment may obtain it.

    I have called for personal sacrifice. I am assured of the willingness of almost all Americans to respond to that call.

    A part of the sacrifice means the payment of more money in taxes. In my Budget Message I shall recommend that a greater portion of this great defense program be paid for from taxation than we are paying today. No person should try, or be allowed, to get rich out of this program; and the principle of tax payments in accordance with ability to pay should be constantly before our eyes to guide our legislation.

    If the Congress maintains these principles, the voters, putting patriotism ahead of pocketbooks, will give you their applause.

    In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

    The first is freedom of speech and expression — everywhere in the world.

    The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way — everywhere in the world.

    The third is freedom from want — which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants – everywhere in the world.

    The fourth is freedom from fear — which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor — anywhere in the world.

    That is no vision of a distant millennium. It is a definite basis for a kind of world attainable in our own time and generation. That kind of world is the very antithesis of the so-called new order of tyranny which the dictators seek to create with the crash of a bomb.

    To that new order we oppose the greater conception — the moral order. A good society is able to face schemes of world domination and foreign revolutions alike without fear.

    Since the beginning of our American history, we have been engaged in change — in a perpetual peaceful revolution — a revolution which goes on steadily, quietly adjusting itself to changing conditions — without the concentration camp or the quick-lime in the ditch. The world order which we seek is the cooperation of free countries, working together in a friendly, civilized society.

    This nation has placed its destiny in the hands and heads and hearts of its millions of free men and women; and its faith in freedom under the guidance of God. Freedom means the supremacy of human rights everywhere. Our support goes to those who struggle to gain those rights or keep them. Our strength is our unity of purpose.

    To that high concept there can be no end save victory.

    Relations with the government of Canada remain cordial. Canadian citizens can cross into the U.S. at will, traveling and vacationing without an official visa. Even living and working in the U.S. poses little problem for the Canadian citizen; visa requirements are very lenient for our “harmless” brothers and sisters to the north.
    Soon, any American citizen wishing to fly to or from Canada and the United States will be required to present a passport.
    The Canadian border is guarded on its northern side by the Canadian Mounties.
    Anyone familiar with Canadian immigration policy will tell you that Canada is an immigrant haven and one especially desirable for those seeking some form of asylum.

    His intended target was the Los Angeles International Airport. Ressam was only caught because he attempted to smuggle his explosives through a port-of-entry. Had he been thinking, he would have slipped across the border just a few miles to either side of the port-of-entry and exploited the biggest weakness in all of U.S. homeland security.

    Many people on the North Olympic Peninsula read bin Laden’s name for the first time in 1999 after Ressam drove off the MV Coho ferry with explosives.

    Growing up in Algeria

    Ahmed Ressam was born on May 19, 1967, the eldest of seven children. He grew up in a small, poor town west of Algiers. His brother Kamel Ressam told Newsweek (May 8, 2000) that Ahmed was the first in the family to get a “modern” education. By his teenage years, according to Kamel, he had become somewhat of a “dandy,” wearing American clothes like Levi’s and Stan Smith sneakers. In 1984, Ressam developed an ulcer and was sent to Paris for treatment. In France, he read  books — banned in Algeria — about how military dictators ruined Algeria’s hopes of democracy after it gained independence from France. On his return, his brother says, Ressam was very bitter about his country. He believed that the government was corrupt and began to take up the cause of militant Islamic rebels, to his father’s dismay.

    Ressam failed the exam which would have allowed him to continue on to college after graduating from high school in 1988. He applied for jobs with the Algerian police and security forces, but was turned down. He worked for a few years in the coffee shop owned by his father. In 1992, he left Algeria and headed for France in an attempt, he testified, to find work.

    1992 + Ressam leaves Algeria for France

    In 1992, civil war broke out in Algeria when an Islamic fundamentalist party won national elections but was prevented from taking power by the military government. Many of the Islamic militants left Algeria in 1992, including Ressam. He moved to France, where he lived illegally until 1994, mostly on the island of Corsica. He says that during his time there he worked picking grapes and oranges and at a tourist resort.

    February 1994 + Ressam travels to Canada

    Using a doctored French passport with his picture crudely glued in, the 27-year-old Ressam flew from France to Montreal. At the airport, he was stopped by immigration officials who suspected that his passport was false. Ressam requested political asylum, claiming in a sworn statement that he had been tortured in Algeria and that he was falsely accused of arms trading and other terrorist activities. Apparently without checking with Algeria, France, or Interpol, Canadian immigration agents accepted his story and released him pending a hearing on his refugee status. Canada’s Immigration Minister, Elinor Caplan, later said it was not a serious offense to present a false passport to gain entry to Canada, noting that many legitimate refugees resort to doing so.

    Ressam lived in Montreal for four years. He took up residence in an apartment building later identified by Canadian and international police as the Montreal headquarters of a terrorist cell connected to the Osama bin Laden network, and, more specifically, to an Algerian terrorist organization called the Armed Islamic Group, or GIA. (See the Links and Readings section for more about GIA’s origins and activities.)

    According to Ressam’s trial testimony, during the time he lived in Montreal he worked only a week, delivering advertising leaflets. The remainder of the time, he says, he supported himself on welfare payments and by robbing tourists. Although Ressam estimates that he performed this kind of theft between 30 and 40 times during his stay in Montreal, he says he was arrested for these thefts only four times, and convicted only once. He served no jail time for that conviction, but paid a fine. Despite his arrests, he continued to draw welfare benefits of $500 per month, which he was entitled to as a potential refugee.

    During this time, Ressam says that he and an associate, Mokhtar Haouari, another Algerian refugee claimant, engaged in the trafficking of stolen driver’s license numbers, bank cards, and Social Security cards. They also provided Canadian passports and other identity documents to terrorist associates around the world.

    1995 + Application for refugee status denied

    After missing a June hearing on his application for political asylum, Ressam’s application was denied and a warrant for his arrest was issued. However, he evaded immigration authorities and was never deported. He had developed a new identity for himself by filling in the blanks of a stolen baptismal certificate form with the alias “Benni Antoine Noris.” Using the forged baptismal certificate, he then obtained a Canadian passport in that name.

    1996 + French authorities link Ressam to Algerian terrorist group

    The GIA, or Armed Islamic Group, is a violent terrorist organization based in Algeria. The first major international incident involving the GIA was the 1994 hijacking of an Air France jet in Marseilles, in which hijackers reportedly attempted to crash the plane, fully loaded with fuel, into the Eiffel Tower. The GIA also claimed responsibility for a series of bombing attacks against the Paris Metro in 1995 and 1996. In March 1996, GIA terrorists attempted to bomb the G-7 ministers’ meeting in Lille, Belgium. Evidence from a car bomb, which the police found and exploded safely, led investigators to the nearby town of Roubaix in northern France, home to a group of GIA members. When police closed in on the apartment where the suspected terrorists were, a gun battle ensued, in which one of the GIA members was shot to death. On his body, police found an electronic organizer with the Montreal telephone number of the apartment Ressam was sharing with friends from Algeria. French investigators notified CSIS, the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, about this evidence of GIA terrorist activity in Montreal.

    According to CSIS officials, Ressam was under surveillance as part of a large investigation into a suspected terrorist ring from 1996 until he left for Afghanistan in 1998.

    March 17, 1998 + Trip to Afghanistan for jihad training

    Ressam left Montreal and headed for Afghanistan for terrorist training at the camps funded and administered by Osama bin Laden. He traveled first to Peshawar, a city in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghanistan border, and met with Abu Zubaida, a senior bin Laden lieutenant and gatekeeper in charge of the camps. According to his testimony, Ressam was approved by Zubaida and sent on to the camp in April 1998, where he received training in light arms — including machine guns and rocket propelled grenades — the use of explosives and poison gas, methods for assassination, sabotage, and urban warfare.

    It was during this time, Ressam says, that he began to plan an attack on U.S. targets in 1999. He says that he was assigned to the European-based cell of the Algerian group in the camp, and that the members of the cell planned to travel separately and meet in Canada to commence “an operation” in America before the end of 1999. Before he left for North America, Ressam says that Zubaida requested that Ressam send original Canadian passports to be supplied to other members of the network.

    February 1999 + Return to Canada

    Ressam traveled alone — on the Canadian passport under the name of Benni Noris — back to Montreal. He says that he brought with him chemicals and directions for making explosives. He flew from Pakistan to Seoul, South Korea, and then on to Los Angeles International Airport. It was this visit to the Los Angeles airport that provided him with the inspiration for his bombing target. He thought he could place a bomb, hidden in a suitcase, in the passenger waiting area. After surveilling the airport and calculating how long it would take security guards to check abandoned luggage, he caught a flight to Canada. Back in Montreal, under the name of Benni Noris, he signed a lease on an apartment and obtained a driver’s license. CSIS officials say during this period they were actively looking for Ahmed Ressam and were unaware of his alias.

    In his trial testimony, Ressam said that two members of his cell who were planning to meet him in Canada were stopped at London Immigration. As a result, they determined it was unsafe to travel. Ressam decided to continue with the operation on his own.

    April 1999 + French investigators request search warrants

    French investigating magistrate Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere sent a formal letter to Canadian justice authorities asking for search warrants to be executed in Montreal in his investigation of Algerian terrorists, including Ahmed Ressam, who was specifically named. It took Canada six months to process the request.

    August 1999 + Plan to bomb airport takes shape

    According to his testimony, Ressam began working out the details of his plan to bomb the Los Angeles airport in the late summer of 1999. By fall, he was building timing devices for the bomb and gathering other chemical ingredients.

    During this time, he renewed an important relationship with Mokhtar Haouari, another Algerian refugee claimant living in Montreal. The two men had many political discussions, especially about the bombings which took place in the Paris Metro and at the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Haouari expressed interest in attending jihad training in Afghanistan, and he helped fund Ressam’s activities. Haouari also connected Ressam with an associate in New York, Abdelghani Meskini, who was to be his assistant and guide in the U.S. Ressam maintains, however, that neither Meskini nor Haouari knew of the specific target of Ressam’s plan.

    Nov. 17, 1999 + Ressam goes to Vancouver

    Ressam flew from Montreal to Vancouver to gather materials and make explosives in preparation for his operation. In Vancouver, he met up with a key accomplice, another Algerian refugee named Abdelmajid Dahoumane. The two men rented a room in a motel and set up a crude bomb-making factory.

    Early December 1999 + Ressam returns to Montreal

    Ressam returned to Montreal and met with Haouari, instructing Haouari to tell his friend Meskini to meet Ressam in Seattle in a week’s time. Haouari gave Ressam a driver’s license in the name of Mario Riog. On Dec. 6 or Dec. 7, Ressam returned to Vancouver. For the next week, he and Dahoumane stayed at the Motel 2400, mixing up explosives and gathering material needed for the bomb.

    Dec. 14, 1999 + Ressam arrested near Seattle

    Ressam says that on the morning of Dec. 14, he called Meskini and told him he would be in Seattle that evening. That afternoon, he took a ferry from Victoria, B.C., to Port Angeles, Wash., with more than 100 pounds of explosives stashed in the wheelbed of the trunk of his rental car. His accomplice, Dahoumane, did not travel with him.

    At Victoria, U.S. immigration pre-clearance agents were mildly suspicious of Ressam. They made him open his trunk, but saw nothing. He presented his fake Canadian passport, and the computer check turned up no previous convictions or warrants in the name of Benni Noris. Ressam drove his rental car, with its concealed bomb, onto the ferry heading for Washington state. Upon his arrival at Port Angeles, a U.S. customs agent became suspicious of his hesitant answers to her questions, and she asked for identification. Agents began searching the car. As they discovered the explosive materials — which they at first took to be drugs — in the trunk of the car, Ressam tried to run away. He was caught and arrested.

    Aftermath and Sept. 11, 2001

    After Ressam’s arrest was televised, an urgent call to Meskini came from Haouari in Montreal. Haouari was recorded telling Meskini to change his phone number, beeper, and cell phone and to leave immediately. Police watched as Meskini ripped up airline receipts and bank machine slips and threw them into a nearby dumpster. The FBI retrieved the evidence, and both men were arrested hours later. Meskini entered into a plea agreement in which he admitted conspiring with Ressam and testified against him at trial. Haouari was extradited to the U.S. from Canada and put on trial in New York.

    On April 6, 2001, after a four-week trial in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Ressam was convicted of nine counts, including conspiracy to commit an international terrorist act, explosives smuggling, and lying to customs officials. Facing up to 130 years in prison, Ressam agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, providing information about his activities and those of his terrorist network. As part of the agreement, he testified against Haouari at trial. His sentencing has been postponed until February 2002. Also on April 6, Ressam was convicted in absentia in France and sentenced to five years for conspiring to commit terrorist acts there.

    Abdelmajid Dahoumane escaped to Afghanistan. The U.S. State Department issued a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest and conviction. He was later caught by Algerian security forces and convicted on terrorism-related charges there.

    Just days after the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001, investigators interrogated Ressam at the federal detention center near Seattle. They reportedly showed him pictures of the 19 hijackers. He said he knew none of them but did provide other names of people in so-called “sleeper cells” in North America. Ressam has also added significant new information about Al Qaeda’s interest in chemical and biological weapons.
