That old Southern hospitality just ain’t what it used to be—at least not in the hotel business. An unforeseen development due to a sudden swarming of modern-day Yankee carpetbaggers to the Land of Cotton? Not really. These days the radical carpetbaggers carry prayer rugs, wear taqiyahs and hijabs, and you won’t see them at any down-home Dixie barbeques unless they’re planning to cook a local Christian or two.
Okay…I was just kidding around with that “cook-a-Christian” crack. They don’t really fricassee Christians in America—yet. Festivities of that sort are still limited to Sharia-friendly places like Pakistan, Egypt, the Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Indonesia, and countless other locations where the riotous adherents of the “Religion of Peace” are found in substantial numbers. Here in the good old U.S.A., the acolytes of Allah are content for the time being with merely infiltrating the government and intimidating poltroonish hostel-keepers like those operating the Hyatt Place Houston and the Hutton Hotel in Nashville into denying critics of Islam their free speech rights. Ask Pamela Geller, of the Atlas Shrugs blog, whose scheduled speaking engagements at both venues were abruptly cancelled. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), in the time-honored tradition of Don Corleone, made the hotels an ‘offer they couldn’t refuse’:
- The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Islamic supremacist groups are conducting an ongoing campaign to discredit and marginalize everyone who dares to stand up against the jihad and Islamic supremacism. Central to this campaign is pressure against any organization or venue that dares to host a freedom fighter — hence Hamas-linked CAIR’s efforts to intimidate the FBI and the military into dropping invitations to me and other counter-jihadists, and its pressure on universities and private groups that host events featuring pro-freedom activists.
[...] Hamas-linked CAIR and its Islamic supremacist and Leftist allies are open enemies of the freedom of speech, and they’re relentless in bringing pressure on any individual, group or venue that dares to step out of the political correct dhimmi lockstep.

- Steve Eckley, Senior Vice-President of Hutton Hotel, told conference organizers Monday that he had been getting threatening letters and calls, and that consequently the hotel would not honor its contract for the conference. Eckley even said that if conference organizers and attendees showed up at the hotel, they would not be let in.

[...] Perhaps, Mr. Eckley, you should remind those people who threatened your hotel, no doubt stirred up by grievance mongers like CAIR, that we live in America where differing political views are given the opportunity to express themselves. Familiar with that? It’s called the First Amendment, something they don’t have in Sharia-compliant countries.
[...] The Sugar Land Tea Party reserved a conference room at the Hyatt Place Houston/Sugar Land Hotel to hear Pamela Geller, prominent anti-jihadist and anti-Sharia advocate, speak last week on the subject of the dangers of stealth Sharia and stealth jihad in the United States. The Hyatt abruptly, with little or no notice, cancelled the event, originally citing “security reasons.” The Sugar Land Tea Party rushed to find another venue for the event, a community center. What security reasons did the hotel name? “Complaints” by Muslims that Geller’s explanation of Sharia law constituted “hate speech.”
All one hears from OWS, however, is “hate speech” directed against the rich, against corporations, against Jews, against capitalism, against freedom. This is “hate speech” approved by the MSM, while anyone who criticizes Islam, Sharia law, or anything remotely Arabic is branded an “Islamaphobe” or a “racist.”
Where are the Muslim Brotherhood and the Obama Administration Taking America? (Dr. Essam Abdallah via Act For America – Houston)Disturbing reports are coming out of Washington, D.C.
These reports reveal the depth of the below-the-surface coordination between the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Hamas, Hezbollah, the Iranian regime and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, Tunisia, Libya and Jordan. This bloc of regimes and organizations is now becoming the greatest Islamist radical lobby ever to penetrate and infiltrate the White House, Congress, the State Department and the main decision making centers of the US government.
[...] the popular revolts in the Arab world – and the Obama Administration’s position towards them – were determined by political battles between various pressure groups in Washington. Moreover, pressures by these lobbying groups have left an impact on the region’s events, the last of which was the canceling of the visit of Maronite Patriarch Rahi to Washington. A number of Arab and Western news agencies have leaked that one of “those who sought to cancel this visit was Dalia Mujahid, a top advisor on Islamic and Arab affairs at the State Department, who is of Egyptian origin. And that”, said the reports, “came at the request of the high command of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, who wish to see the US Administration support the Islamist Sunni current.”
