The Infidel Task Force

There ain't nothin' wrong with our site!!

I'm not one to be a cry baby, but something such as this...well, it just bothers the crap out of me. I am a firm believer that our site is a pretty good one. Good resources. Up to date information. Great participation from our staff. News and commentaries. Then out of the blue we get a guy that thinks he can decide which site is just ok, and which are "highly developed."

I was on Infidels United the other day and this member was lsiting web sites to go too. I threw ours in just to be funny and he comes back with this:

" Great work for those who have the time to scroll through it all. Can it be redone to be placed in categories? It's not bad but I'm going to try to limit my list to the higher developed sites, or at least I think I am. All I know is that I appreciate your great effort & what you're doing to alert and educate about Islam. "

I guess he didn't see the menu which "categorized" different Islamic Subject matter. He must have liked it because he said......"not bad". Ooooh.....not bad. But I guess we are not of the "higher developed" sites. Oh darn.

I responded with:

" The ITF gets a pretty decent hit count.
we have a nice size following. Tons of information and resources for people who are serious in fighting the threat of radical Islam. Unlike other sites, ours is not run by the size of our egos.
I don't appreciate the comment .."higher developed sites."
We at the ITF are very proud of what we produce. "

I think he means well, and I'm sure it was his first time visiting the ITF, so he is not familiar with our "rich content". How is that for a description? "Rich Content" If he was a regular visitor, I'm sure he would have a different opinion, but maybe I should see his site just to be sure. Problem is, I don't know the path.

Listen....what I'm trying to get at is if your going to produce a list of the Anti-Radical Islamic sites. Don't pick and choose. We are all in this together. Some sites are better maintained and others aren't. Some are done by one person, others have teams. Some sites are well known and MANY others are not.

I discover new sites everyday.

But...EVERY site is important! There are no little sites that do nothing. If some have no comments on their threads, we should help them. Get the word out!! Publicize all the web sites. Granted Atlas Shrugs and Jihad Watch and Bare Naked Islam and some others like to think of themselves as GODS and Goddesses of the bandwith, but they have also let the sites grow as big as their swelled heads. They truly want to educate the masses.....but they are looking out for their own hit counts as well, believe me.

The Infidel Task Force is in partnership with some GREAT sites well known to everyone. Sites like...Blazing Cat Fur and Tundra Tabloids and 1389. I can't list them all here so take a look at our blog list. Those sites came through and teamed with us when we were young and just starting. And they are with us still. Those sites and others, send us a lot of readers. And we are grateful to them.

All I'm asking is that one does not categorize sites or presume they are small and unworthy of mention. There is a deadly threat out there willing to kill and conquer us. We are all in this together, and the sooner we all realize that, the better.

Just for laughs I typed in "Lets not upset the muslims" in the Google search field. These links are what I came up with. Take a look at the varied subjects that seem to get the muslims riled...toy pigs, dogs, signs. But also notice that we censor ourselves. And thus we fall right into their hands.

I had breakfast the other morning with my cousin, who happens to be a teacher in the local school. I was astounded to learn that American traditional holidays are being re-vamped or removed out of the school system. The Board of Education is taking steps so as not to offend any one religion. It doesn't matter that no one has ever complained, they want to step right up and prevent it from ever happening.

The more I listened the more I understood that it wasn't just political correctness but also the removal of anything known as or displayed as Christianity from the holiday scene. Oh could have a menorah, but not the nativity.

This reminded me of the principal in a Massachusetts grammer school that singled handedly eliminated Columbus Day (because of the atrocities that Columbus may have done to the native population), cancelled Halloween (because of the relation to witchcraft and sorcery) and she may or may not cancel Thanksgiving Day decorations. (She hadn't decided yet) This is ONE person. Not a board or committee. One person to make these decisions. She has the power to control what those children think, learn and do in that school. And you as a parent do nothing. Time to stop that shit.

....but back to not offending the muslims.....

I am willing to wager that when the muslims reach a majority in any given town, city or state, you will see the leaders bending over backwards to let them do whatever they wish. After all we don't want any violence, now do we? We don't want them offended. Heavens no!! It would ruin our image as a country and citizenry of compassionate people.

Here's most schools around the country...the atrocity of 9/11 is not even being taught. GASP!! if you have school age children, just ask them how is the Radical Islamic attack of 911 presented. You may be very surprised at what you hear.

So maybe our gutless, gullible, political corrected liberal, progressive, spineless leaders are taking us down the road where we will no longer have any American traditions, thus lighting the way for the multi-cultural ideologies invading this country.

No maybes about it. Our children will suffer for what these fools are doing.

Pakistan - I spit on you!!

Yeah I'm mad...... Pakistan: I spit on you!! I can only hope that something God awful happens to that country and its uneducated ignorant people. The leaders are idiots and the clerics run the country. How can people like these condone violence against non-muslims? But they do!! I can honestly say, reading articles like this make me wish someone would line those Islamic clerics up against a wall and blow their brain matter out. What little they have. I demand to know how much money is sent to Pakistan, because I would demand that money stop. Let the Taliban come down and take over. So what!! If that is what they want....give it to them. Give them the submission that Allah demands. Let them have their 7th century ways, I don't care.

"Islam is Pakistan’s sole identity and there is no room for secularism and its believers in this country, deputy Secretary General, Jama’at-e-Islami Hafiz Sajid Anwar said here while addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque.
He said a Muslim could not tolerate blasphemy of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and even the Interior Minister Rehman Malik had told media that if someone committed blasphemy in his presence, he would shoot him to death."

"If someone committed blasphemy in his presence he would shoot them to death." That's how they think. Allah before life. Death before dishonor to Allah. Allah before your children. Honor before family. Muslims are bad enough...male muslims are total idiots. Pakistani male muslims should be locked up.

"Hafiz Sajid Anwar exhorted the rulers to learn a lesson from Salmaan Taseer’s murder as none of the official Khatibs and Imams was ready to lead his funeral prayer. He said there was consensus of the Ummah that blasphemy of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was punishable by death."

There!! Now you can see it. Blasphemy of the "holy prophet" is punishable by death. Well then hows this: "Allah is Satan. Mohammed was a rapist and pedophile. Allah is deaf, dumb and blind and he's probably a village idiot. ...and....and...oh yeah...Islam is of the devil."

Please send that to your buddies in Paki-terror-stan and give them my regards. Now I have one more quote;

"Addressing the Friday congregation at Syed Maudoodi Institute mosque Hafiz Muhammad Idrees said Salmaan Taseer’s murder should be an eye opener for the other rulers who were clamouring against the Blasphemy Law. Referring to Rehman Malik’s statement that he would shoot down a blasphemer, he asked what crime Mumtaz Qadri had committed. He said the protection of the minorities in the country also lay in obedience to the law of the country. He said that Islam guaranteed protection of the minorities. (Yeah RIGHT!! Thats why Christian Copts are being killed everyday. Islam protects no one except the muslim man. Everyone else suffers. Don't lie to us cleric.)He advised the anti-Islam elements in the country to stop attacks on Islam and study it thoroughly. He said that the western powers could cow down the Muslim rulers but not the Muslim masses."

Look idiot...the current western powers may bow down before muslims rulers...but if you let the western masses loose we will show you just how much we are capable of. DON'T .. and I really mean...DON'T try our patience. We can change the clueless and castrated politician we have now. So that the next ones will have some courage to go up against Islamic idiots such as yourself. So don't screw around with the American people.

Stop all financial aide to Pakistan...NOW!

.......there! I feel better now. You? - BBJ

Interview with Dr. Laina Farhat-Holzman

Dr. Laina Farhat-Holzman is a writer and historian who formerly taught World History and Islamic Civilization at Golden Gate University in San Francisco, where she was also Executive Director of the San Francisco United Nations Association and was a frequent speaker for the World Affairs Council and the Commonwealth Club.

She has been a 26-year observer of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and has been charting the growth of fanatical radicalized Islam around the world. Both as a columnist for local newspapers and in scholarly papers given at academic conferences and published in the Comparative Civilizations Review, she has warned of the danger to democratic societies from a rising tide of fundamentalist/political religions.

The September 11, 2001 attack on America has increased the demand for her columns and as a lecturer. A book completed just before the attack, God's Law or Man's Law: The Fundamentalist Challenge to Secular Rule, has been published, and is going into its second edition.

Dr. Farhat-Holzman has lived in Iran twice: the first time when married to an Iranian student who was doing his graduate research in his home country. She was witness to Iran's accelerated attempt at modernizing during the reign of the last Pahlavi shah.

Her second residence there was fifteen years later, during the period leading up to the Islamic Revolution. She was the cross-cultural expert on a project that involved a number of US defense firms, US intelligence agencies, and the Iranian Air Force. Her perspective on radicalized Islam is a combination of domestic experience, professional experience, and her background as a historian.

May we present...

Dr. Laina Farhat-Holzman


Welcome Dr Farhat-Holzman to the Infidel Task Force and thank you for taking the time to chat with us. You come with major credentials and I’m sure the readers will enjoy this column

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I am delighted to have found you—and been found by you!


When someone hears about a woman living in Iran, the images that immediately spring to mind are of Sally Field in the movie: “Not Without My Daughter”. Tell us please how you were introduced to Iran.

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I met my Iranian husband at UCLA, and in graduate school, he received a Ford Foundation Grant to study Persian Court Music (an ancient and lovely tradition that was rapidly disappearing). We spent two years in Iran, living with his family and giving birth to our first child.

His family, being old aristocracy, was nothing like the terrible family of the young woman in “Not Without My Daughter.” My experience was during the post World War II period when the young Shah finally roused himself to engage in modernization projects (something his father had done as the first modernizer after centuries of decay). My then husband’s family were patriotic, eager to see Iran get out from under the thrall of Islam, and they welcomed me—their educated and curious American daughter-in-law. Adding to my luck: I had an amazing and unique mother-in-law who was vibrant, beautiful, and wise, and we took to each other and were friends until her premature death right after the Islamic Revolution.

My experience was very different from that of the Sally Field character who went to Iran at the wrong time and into the worst kind of family—pious merchant class people.

And years after my marriage ended, I was sent to Iran on a project that involved cross-cultural training—and this was during a period that the revolution was brewing. I did try to notify my Congressman at the time and the State Department Iran Chair, but I was not believed. I was being politically incorrect, it seems.


When you first set eyes on the landscape and the people, what went through your mind? Was it excitement, amazement or possibly fear?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

The landscape around Tehran looked much like that of Utah—a reality that many Iranian students recognized as they were sent to school in Utah to study agriculture. Our arrival was something of a family event—and we were much welcomed and (being pregnant) fussed over. As I learned Farsi, and as we traveled around the country, I became much more comfortable. I fell in love with Esfahan, the old Capital, a city that I found as beautiful as Florence, Italy. And Shiraz, a 7,000 foot city full of orange blossoms and wildflowers in the countryside around it, was the home of some of Iran’s most famous poets—much loved by everyone. The Caspian Sea region (finally free of malaria by the government eradication program) was as beautiful as Hawaii—forested mountains and green rice and tea fields. I never traveled anywhere that I had to wear a veil. Modern women did not do that then.


The Infidel Task Force is a major supporter of women’s rights around the world. We see everyday how women are treated in the Islamic countries and it can be repulsive and degrading. I think you can see where I am going with this, and I would like you to give us an overview on how the Iranian women lived at that time compared to how they are treated today.

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I was in Iran at the height of modernization, and I did not know any women who wore a chador (head-to-toe cloak); I only saw them on villagers and the urban poor. At one time, only prostitutes wore them (a story pushed by the government). This situation has been reversed.

Today, young women increasingly defy the government, pushing their headscarves further back on their heads and wearing tight and more revealing clothing. They never know from day to day when the religious morality thugs will beat them for this, but they do it anyway.


How did the Pahlavi government engage in the educational aspect of the Iranian women and was there any attempt to modernize Islam as compared to Iran today?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

The Pahlavi Dynasty (Reza Shah and his son) were determined to emancipate women to European standards. The upper classes were the first to do so—but increasingly this movement was picked up by the burgeoning middle class of professionals and the more prosperous merchants. Bright girls were sent abroad to school (I personally knew one village girl who later became an engineer—but there were many others.)

The young women who were caught up in what they thought was a wonderful socialist revolution found out quickly what the Ayatollah and his cabal planned for them. The marriage age was once more lowered, complete veiling mandated (violators punished), and such customs as cutting off hands and stoning adulteresses were revived in rural areas.

Mandatory brainwashing and hours of religious training replaced normal school subjects—much resented by many students, but difficult to defy.


If you were to teach us one important factor of Iranian culture past and present, what would that factor be? Are you still in contact with individuals there and do you have any desire to return to Iran?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I would say that Iran (Persia) is far older than Islam, and that it has a continuing identity that even the Ayatollah was not able to wipe out—although he tried. This is a country with arts, literature, and government practices that were the model for much of the ancient world. They were rivals of the Greeks and Romans—and later Byzantines---and the educated still know this. The great national epic: The Shahname (Book of Kings) was written in the 10th century while Persia was under Muslim occupation. The language was deliberately Persian, eliminating as much as possible any Arabic words, and the story tracks Iran’s identity from mythical beginnings until the Arab invasion. This marvelous work is still read by story tellers all over Iran—and is on Radio Tehran daily for people to do their exercises to its drumbeats and poetry.

And no, I have no desire to go back until the Islamic government is gone. When that happens, I have promised to lead a tour to the real Iran.


The Infidel Task Force has a contributor living in Iran. He tells us that currently, sentiment towards the western world or specifically Americans, is running about 50% against. I believe many of our readers would like to know how did the Iranian people feel about Americans during your time there as opposed to what is happening in Iran today.

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I have heard that the US is the most popular country in the world to Iranians today. What their government hates, they love. I don’t know who your consultant is—but I really doubt that assessment.

After World War II, Iranians loved the US, primarily because we had never done anything to them, not the case with the Russians and the British, both of whom were hated. That changed after the abortive coup of Mossadegh was put down. America replaced the British as the hated country—despite anyone with money sending their children to school here. Now we are loved again.


Dr Farhat-Holzman, you say that your perspective on radicalized Islam is a combination of domestic experience, professional experience and your background as a historian. Can you clarify that statement? Did you ever experience the radical aspect of Islam?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

Except for the occasional midnight phone call and letters to the editor complaining about my newspaper columns, I have never been personally threatened. One time in San Francisco, I was lecturing about “The War Inside of Islam” at the Commonwealth club—and a group of Islamists attended (including women in full hijab) and they tried to disrupt the talk. The audience threw them out.


As a professor of Islamic Civilization, how was the subject received by your Muslim students as compared to your American students? I assume you did have Muslim students. Was there ever a case of vocalized militancy?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I had no Muslim students, but I did have plenty of students from Malaysia and Indonesia, Chinese Christians, and a few Hindus, who had no problem with what I was teaching. And in those days, I was much kinder to Islam than I am today. However, in one of my classes, I had the students read The Satanic Verses by Salmon Rushdie. A Muslim student not in my class buttonholed me in the hall to ask why I would teach such a hateful book that was so unkind to Islam. I told him to come back after he read the book, not before he had even opened it. He backed off.


A growing number of people in the United States feel that America is under siege by radical Islamic leaders attempting to dismantle the US Constitution and replace it with Shariah Law. This is actually documented in some of your papers. Do you feel it is a real possibility? Or are we Americans truly protected by the Constitution?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I think there are Islamists who would like to see this, but it is not going to happen. We are not only protected by the Constitution, but by the increasingly ugly behavior of Islamists who think they can do this by force. They not only have pushback from us, but from the majority of secular Muslims (such as Iranian immigrants) who will have none of it.


Lastly Dr. if you were to say which country is in the most danger of becoming totally controlled by radicalized Islamists, which one would that be?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

Pakistan. I really fear for them. And I am not terribly happy with what is happening to Egypt either.


What was the cultural difference between your husband’s Iranian family and yours and did it put a strain on your marriage?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

No. The cultural differences were not an issue between us. My marriage failed because my husband was a romanatic who loved falling in love, but not staying in love. He was always looking for the perfect women—a process that gave him four marriages, none of which succeeded. This characteristic is not unique to Iranians, alas.


When you made the decision to move to Iran, what kind of mental preparation and self convincing did you have to go through to do it? Or was it something performed on whim?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

I never moved to Iran. It was always understood that we were visiting Iran as graduate students on a project—and we left after the project was completed. When I went back years later, it was also for a project. I never considered living there.


With respect on raising children in an Islamic society, were your children raised in a totally Islamic fashion or a more Western slant? At what point are male and female children separated in an Islamic country?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

None of this applied. My children were reared here. Both my son and daughter had a short period of staying with their father (I thought they should have that experience) but they returned to resume their schooling here. Since the family I married into was merely nominally Muslim, none of the horrors of Islamic child rearing applied. Islam never played a role.


Thank you very much for coming Dr Farhat-Holman. I’m sure our readers will want you to come back for another chat. Would you do that for us?

Dr. Farhat-Holzman:

Of course! And thank you.
