Middle Tennessee is the epicenter of the American resistance to Islamization. Anti-sharia volunteers are thick on the ground in Nashville and its environs, and they are very vocal and effective in their work. The political class and the local media generally toe the multicultural/dhimmi line, but the grassroots has mobilized to resist the further encroachment of Islam in the area. Evangelical churches are particularly dedicated to informing people about the realities of political Islam.
A couple of weeks ago the Department of Justice and its Muslim Brotherhood front groups ran into unexpected resistance in Manchester at a public meeting discussing the need for suppressing speech that criticizes Islam. Tomorrow evening they are trying for a repeat performance, this time in Nashville. Dr. Bill Warner will be there, and readers who live in the Nashville area are encouraged to attend the event as backup for Dr. Warner.
The Tennessee Freedom Coalition just sent out this email about tomorrow night’s “interfaith” discussion.
On Thursday evening at Glendale Baptist Church, the Nashville-based interfaith group Family of Abraham is hosting a discussion entitled “Human Rights, Civil Liberties, and Religious Freedom.” The event begins at 7pm, is located at 1202 Glendale Lane, and is free of charge.
Blanche Cook, a Federal Prosecutor with the US Attorney General’s office will be speaking, followed by a panel discussion that includes local Muslim activist Remziya Suleyman of the American Center for Outreach and Hedy Weinberg of the ACLU of Tennessee.
This group has held interfaith events throughout the city of Nashville, each with considerable positive coverage by the Tennessean. Bill Warner of PoliticalIslam.com has long been speaking out about the dangers of radical Islam. He plans to attend the meeting on Thursday evening and silently hand out a flier to those in attendance. The content of the flier is included below. First, a message from Andy Miller, Chairman of the TFC:
Recently I had the pleasure of speaking at an event in Dallas that Frank Gaffney Jr. set up with about 45-50 prominent business leaders about educating and working with State Legislators on issues regarding the Political Nature of Islam. At that event was a Pastor named Rafael Cruz… Yes, Senator Ted Cruz’ Father. After the event he and I talked for close to an hour and a half and he told me that one of if not the most irresponsible and dangerous groups leading folks astray regarding Islam’s Agenda were America’s Clergy. He specifically brought up the “Family of Abraham” Interfaith Events and made it clear to me that when a Pastor or Preacher knows so little about another religion’s tenets or its clearly stated agenda and professes that “We pray to the same God” or that “Allah and God” are one in the same that they are not only leading their flock dangerously astray but are actually delivering them into the hands of Evil.
I see Pastor Cruz as completely right and correct. I stand with him and will speak the same. Anyone that can so blindly and recklessly mislead so many is in some respects more dangerous than the Evil Ideology that they pretend to understand.
Strong Words? You bet. Read the Koran! Understand how it Works! But also the Sira and Hadiths… Read the “Reliance of the Traveller”! Know how abrogation works within the Koran. Understand what it is to be a Kafir and know that you are one.
But stop pretending that a Supremacist Ideology that sees us all as dirty, filthy subhumans that they can effectively do whatever they choose, including rob, rape and murder, has any interest in “Being a part of your Family”. Because he is compelled by “Allah” to either convert you or end your life. Sound like your God? Not mine, either.

A voice for the Voiceless
- We demand a voice for the Kafir political class, particularly in matter of government. This includes education and law enforcement.
- We demand a voice for the martyrs of jihad.
- We demand a voice for those who suffer under political Sharia— apostates, women, artists, gays, free thinkers.
- We demand that those who claim leadership and speak about Islam know the Islamic political doctrine found in the Koran and the Sunna.
We will debate any person or team
Resolved: there is good in Islam for the Kafir.
We hold that the resolution is false and will debate anyone who affirms the resolution.
Denying Human Rights
The doctrine of political Islam and the Sharia deny basic human rights as found the UN Declaration of 1947. Under the Sharia humans are not equal.
- There are different political/legal classes in Islam based on gender and religion.
- There is no freedom of conscience, since apostates from Islam may be murdered.
- There is no freedom of religion, since the Sharia dictates all public behavior, including religious behavior.
- There is no freedom of speech due to blasphemy laws that greatly restrict what can be said.
- Artists, writers and intellectuals are not free to do anything that offends Islam.
- Political speech is forbidden that offends Islam.
We have seen events like this for the last 11 years in Nashville and they all have several things in common. There is only one voice allowed, that of religious Islam and its apologists. Islam is presented in the form of the Muslim experience. Since the Muslims are good, then by implication—Islam is good.
There is never a voice from those who are persecuted under the jihad laws of the Sharia. Every year thousands of Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Hindus and others are murdered because they are non- Muslims, called Kafirs.
There is never a voice from a non- Muslim (Kafir) who has knowledge about Islam, Sharia and the history of Islam. Those who hold views of any view other than “Islam is wonderful” are condemned as immoral and bigots and, as such, are not heard.
There is no voice for the victims of Sharia laws — abused women, apostates, persecuted artists, gays and writers.
There are two manifestations of Islam—religious and political. The voice of political Islam is censored. We only hear about religious Islam.
Questions from the floor are not allowed. Real discourse is forbidden.
But we do have a new voice tonight — the Federal government. This is the second time in two weeks that the DOJ (Department of Justice) has appeared in a Tennessee forum about Islam that does not allow a voice of the victims, reason and knowledge to be heard.
Why is DOJ inserting itself into what it sees as a religious matter?
Will there be DOJ forums centered on Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, and Jews where Kafir voices can be heard?
To the Christians:
Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and other religions are persecuted by jihad. But Christians are more persecuted than anyone else. Last year over 100,000 Christians died at the hands of Muslims and there have been 60 million Christians killed by jihad in the last 1400 years.
When will these martyrs be given a voice in your church?
Family of Abraham
The early Koran speaks well of both Jews and Christians. But those verses are abrogated by these later verses:
5:51 Oh, believers, do not take the Jews or Christians as friends. They are but one another’s friends. If any one of you take them for his friends, he surely is one of them. Allah will not guide the evildoers.
This is the final and ruling verse about Christians and Jews:
9:29 Make war on those who have received the Scriptures [Jews and Christians] but do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day. They do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden. The Christians and Jews do not follow the religion of truth until they submit and pay the poll tax [jizya], and they are humiliated.
