Protection Money Paid to Islam, Without Taxpayer Approval
Reader comment on item: How Many U.S. Muslims?

Most high school graduates have heard of Al Capone, the notorious gangster of the 1930s. He made wads of illegal money by requiring businesses to pay him protection money. If they paid regularly, their business would not be blown to pieces.
In Afghanistan and Iraq, all the countries supposedly fighting Islam have been paying protection money to Islamic terrorists, for years. Only Italy has been publicly identified as paying Islamic protection money in order to prevent Italian Army casualties, but that is the tip of the Muslim Iceberg.
The USA is also paying protection money to Islam terrorists, the vast oil profits they get are more than enough, but protection money is paid as a gesture of humiliation.
At the bottom of this report is a partial list of Islamic mosques all over the world that are being repaired by US taxpayer funds. There is another list of Islamic mosques being built all over the world at US taxpayer expense. The US (communist) State Department made the deal. It is protection money paid as insurance against Moslem terrorist bombing in the USA. This deal was made without taxpayer knowledge or approval because we live in a communist dictatorship!
Sadly enough the onset of unapproved US taxpayer funding of growing Muslim influence by mosques also marks the death of true American Christianity. As of 2010, nearly all Christian protestant churches and all mainline protestant churches inclu8ding the Mormons, have been infiltrated and taken over by communist Christians, an oxymoron. These red criminals have also begun to siphon off parishioner funds into the building of muslim hate-mosques everywhere, For example, dozens have been built throughout the Southeast in the past few years. Each such mosque is a hotbed of political and armed Islamic terrorism and yet millions of stupid "Christians" are supporting the Islamic takeover.
Right now people are rioting in New York and Murfreesboro, TN, about Moslem Mosques being built without the knowledge or approval of local citizens. The US State Department is behind that deal too. They are contracted with several Muslim terror groups through CAIR to include Hezbollah, to pay for dozens of Moslem Mosques throughout the USA…that is paid for by our taxes. By the way, the nation of India has been paying out the same protection money for a decade (for example, they fly all Muslims to Mecca once a year at Indian taxpayer expense, that's about 100 million muslims.).
In Murfreesboro the pro-muslim police state known as the FBI has already appeared in Murfreesboro to "prevent interference with the OIslamic church." FBI thug squads are dashing about the area threatening the timid , yet fed up, local Christians into compliance; while their "Christian ministers" are welcoming Muslim infiltration with the hopes that they can serve the muslim controllers of America's future, without fear of harm. Cowards and communists in the Christian clerical leadership are in support of Muslim tyranny and the end of religious freedom. As usual, religious freedom is being used to bring to power those who will eliminate religious freedom as a vast majority submits to an evil killer minority..
The only way to stop these bastard US Government traitors who are bankrupting us to pay protection money to muslims, is to utterly annihilate them. DO NOT send the State Department to negotiate, they do not work for the best interests of the USA.
The truth is out there. Get off your butt and find it… then Fight! Fight!
