"Mossyface", as he was often called in the West, presented by his followers as a patriotic nationalist, who nationalized Iranian oil for the best interests of Iran, became in actuality a Communist shill, who was in the process of handing Iran and the oil confiscated from the British and West, to the Soviets.
The CIA organized coup to remove him and restore the Shah to the throne has been criticized as an intrusion into the national interests of the people of Iran and removal of a popular hero.
In fact, Mossadegh was "popular" only with the Iranian Communists and Socialists, whose activities initially encouraged him to stand-up to the pro-West Shah and whose incitement brought people to the streets.
The Khomeini take over was an almost twin replay. The same Communist (Tudeh Party) and Islamist Marxists like the Fedayeen and Mojaheddin brought into being mainly by the Soviets, started the revolution and had it snatched from their lips by the clerics.
Simplistically, when the organized government of the Shah fell, the only national network left was the chain of mosques that existed everywhere throughout the country and which started to organize clerically controlled neighborhood committees.
The clerics started imprisoning and killing almost immediately and took over the lives of Iranians at every street level point. Including those of the Islamist Marxists, who found themselves considered the enemy, not a partner.
As shown in Farsi below the lovey-dovey photo, the CIA was interested in the removal of the Mossadegh conduit for a Soviet take over of Iran, which would have given them a path into the warm waters of Southern Iran they have always wanted and the oil resources found in Iran.
در بیشتر تحقیقات موجود دربارهء سقوط دولت دکتر مصدّق، نام واقعی عملیات سازمان سیا، بطور ناقص AJAX ذکر شده و هدف اساسی این طرح را مخدوش ساخته اند. در حالیکه نام واقعی و کامل این طرح، TPAJAX می باشد. پیشوند «T P» اشارهء اختصاری به حزب توده (Tudeh Party) و AJAX نیز نام رایج یک مادهء پاک کنندهء خانگی بود. بدین ترتیب، هدف اساسی طرح: «پاکسازی ایران از حزب توده» بود!
Translation: in most of the existing research relative to the fall of the Dr. Mossadegh's government, the true name of the planned CIA operation and the main aim of it has been incompletely called AJAX though in reality it has TP as the preface, referring to the Tudeh (Communist) Party and is TPAJAX with the focus of the operation being the house cleaning to be done to eradicate the Tudeh political party from inside Iran.
The Western world was far less concerned about restoring the still very young Shah than in confronting the incursion of the Soviets. The Shah, whose monarchy was pro-West was the most convenient way to retain presence in Iran,
It was not till much later that a much older and wiser Shah turned the tables and took control of Iranian oil.
Till he accomplished that, Iran did not have a say in how much oil it could pump from their wells nor at what price it could be sold. The Western oil companies who operated the fields dictated these terms.
The Shah could not plan national development projects as he did not know from year to year what he would be allowed to produce and how much revenue he would obtain.
Mossadegh's natonalization at no time resolved the same problem - other that he would be under Soviet instead of Western control.
What is little known is that the Shah had to put on an Oscar winning performance to finally get contrl of Iran's oil.
Each time he had tried he was turned down and did not have the political international status yet, nor the technological capability in the oil industry to force the matter.
One day, after much thought, he summoned the Western oil consortium and told them the Soviets had insisted on equal rights to prospect for oil in Iran on a par with the Western companies.
The Western companies told him to say "no". To which he responded Iran had some 2,000 kilometers of common border with the Soviet Union and they could easily cross over if they were not appeased. Something they had indicated they might be willing to do.
He added, however, that the main Soviet argument was that the Western countries "owned" the oil and that the Shah was discriminating against the Soviets by not permitting Soviets to wander around Iran to explore for oil.
The idea of Soviets all over Iran horrified the Western countries and they asked what the solution might be.
The Shah replied that if Iran totally "owned" and controlled its own oil, he could then allocate exploration as he desired and could then do so based on bids and technological ability (where the Soviets were very weak) and thus not be in a position to be accused of discrimination.
Faced with this situation, the Western oil companies signed over their control and share of Iranian oil to Iran.
To those around the Shah it was never quite clear whether he had used this as a ruse to get back Iran's oil or even if the Soviets had in fact spoken to him at all.

The Iraqi Army claimed to have captured the minister of defense of the Islamic State of Iraq, al Qaeda’s political front organization. Ahmed Turki Abbas was captured after being wounded in a skirmish near Mahmudiyah and “claimed the rank of defense minister,” Qassim al Moussawi, Iraq's military spokesman told Reuters.
Confirmation on the arrest of Abbas, which is also likely a nom de guerre, has not been given by Multinational Forces Iraq at this time. The Iraqi government has made claims of killing and capturing Abu Omar al Baghdadi several times this year, which turned out to be false reports or cases of mistaken identity.
Abu Ayyub al Masri, the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, is officially listed as the minister of defense for the Islamic State of Iraq, according to a press release put out by the terror group in April.
But over the summer, it became known the Islamic State of Iraq was the invention of al Masri, who serves as the emir, or leader of the group. Abu Omar al Baghdadi is actually a fictional character played by an Iraqi actor named Abu Abdullah al Naima. This information was revealed after the captured of Abu Muhammad al Mashadani, the former Minister of Information for the Islamic State of Iraq.
With al Masri serving as the emir of both the Islamic State of Iraq and al Qaeda in Iraq, the portfolio of defense minister was delegated to Abbas, a senior US military intelligence official told The Long War Journal.
After learning of the arrest of Abbas, Marvin Hutchens of ThreatsWatch.org agreed with that assessment. “For purely pragmatic reasons, Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Islamic State of Iraq need as many Iraqi names in leadership posts as possible,” said Hutchens in an interview.
“They are selling their legitimacy as the Iraqi state and having al Masri known as the Minister of Defense hides his real role as the foreign leader of an illegitimate insurgent state.”
If Abbas’ capture is confirmed, he would be the third member of the cabinet of the Islamic State to be captured or killed this year. Muharib Abdul Latif al Jabouri, the Minister of Public Relations, was killed during a major battle between the Anbar Awakening and al Qaeda in the town of Dhuluiya in neighboring Salahadin province last May.
BAGHDAD — Coalition forces killed 12 terrorists, detained 37 suspects and freed one hostage during a multi-day operation Dec. 22 to 25 to disrupt al-Qaida networks near Muqdadiyah in the Diyala River Valley.
Coalition forces returned to an area where recent operations indicated an al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI) network was operating. A recent operation resulted in the discovery of nine weapons caches, mass graves and a torture complex.
During the four-day operation, Coalition forces were involved in multiple engagements with groups of armed men, resulting in 12 terrorists killed and 37 suspects detained.
On Sunday, a local citizen led the ground force to what they assessed to be a terrorist medical facility, complete with surgical equipment, numerous medical supplies and medication. Also in the compound, Coalition forces discovered ammunition, maps of the area, and a set of instructions on making improvised explosive devices (IED).
During operations Monday, Coalition forces discovered an AQI suicide-bomb making facility with numerous bomb-making materials inside. As the ground force cleared the building, they found a man held captive in a locked room, who appeared to have been beaten.
The individual told Coalition forces he was kidnapped a few days prior, beaten, handcuffed and blindfolded. The man was treated on site and transported to a military medical facility for further care. Once able, the individual will be turned over to Iraqi officials for repatriation.
Over the course of the multi-day operation, Coalition forces discovered several hide sites where terrorists allegedly conducted attacks. One of the sites was assessed to be a firing point for IED attacks.
At that location, the ground force discovered a structure with various wires leading from a lookout hole to a nearby road intersection.
While clearing areas Monday and Tuesday, the ground force discovered two buildings assessed to be rigged with explosives. Coalition forces safely destroyed the buildings to prevent any injury to Iraqis in the area or damage to their property.
Secondary explosions erupted from both buildings, indicating explosives were likely inside. Five additional buildings and a water tower used as a terrorist sniper position were destroyed during the operation to prevent future use for terrorist activities.
Coalition forces also located and destroyed eight weapons caches, which included machine guns, a sniper rifle, pistols, rocket propelled grenade rounds and propellant, ammunition, grenades, detonation cord and several bags of homemade explosives.
“Al Qaida has become synonymous with assassinations, torture, car bombings and executions,” said Colonel Don Bacon, MNF-I spokesman. “Iraqi citizens are rejecting the radical ideology and barbaric behavior that is foreign to their nation.”

BAGHDAD — Iraqi National Police found two weapon caches after receiving a tip regarding the location of terrorists near the Al-Kartheemain Mosque, Dec. 24 in east Rashid.

So also with Abraham: there is talk of the West’s ‘Abrahamic civilization’ where once people spoke of 'Judeo-Christian civilization’.
This shift of thinking reflects the growing influence of Islam.
* But “Issa’-, Muhammad’s perverted Jesus, has nothing in common with the Jesus of the Christians:
‘Issa’ Will Abolish Christianity
‘Muslims believe Jesus will come back, break the cross and lead the war against the kaffirs’-
There’s more: Jesus will come back, break the cross, kill the swine and abolish the jiziyah.
The swine, that’s us folks, just in case you’re wondering.
The killing of the swine is so that the “Christian belief of its lawfulness is belied.
” The reason for abolishing the jizyah tax (the compulsory poll-tax that non-Muslims must pay in order to live (stay alive) in a Muslim land) is based on the idea that when Jesus returns, the jizyah tax will no longer be accepted.
The only choice that Christians will have is to accept Islam or die.
* Here’s a summary:
Let’s review the various defining characteristics and actions of the Muslim Jesus upon his return to the earth:
1. Jesus is said to return to the earth in the last-days near a mosque in Damascus.
2. He will arrive at a time when the Mahdi and his army will be preparing to pray.
3. He will be offered to lead the prayer by the Mahdi, but will decline in direct deference to the Mahdi who Jesus declares to be the leader of the Muslims.
4. He will then pray behind the Mahdi as a subordinate.
5. He will be a faithful Muslim
6. He will make pilgrimage to Mecca.
7. He will visit Muhammad’s grave, and salute Muhammad, whereby Muhammad will return the salute from the grave.
8. He will destroy Christianity.
9. He will repeal the jizyah tax thus causing the only option for Jews and Christians to convert to Islam or die.
10. He will establish Islamic Shari’ah (Law) throughout the entire earth.
11. He will kill the Antichrist and his followers made up largely of Jews and women.
12. He will remain on the earth for roughly forty years, during which time he will marry, have children and then die.
As we have clearly seen, the Muslim Jesus, in both his nature and actions is far different than the biblical Jesus.
Rather than coming to reign as King and Messiah over all the earth from Jerusalem, Jesus instead comes to convert the world to Islam or kill those who refuse to do so.
Instead of coming to save and deliver faithful Christians and Jews, he comes instead to kill and slaughter them.
Alan Note: When will the West wake up that Islam is NOT just another major religion to be tolerated and assimilated into our Western, mostly Judeo-Christian, culture?
That they pervert our customs and cultures and religion, while we stand back and allow them to destroy these on a daily basis, offering no resistance?
"Offering the other cheek" - as per original Christian teaching - is becoming a suicide pact with Jesus. In my humble opinion, not what Jesus preached or intended!

More "thugs" die together
Five "thugs" hang in Mashhad a religious city in North East Iran and where the tomb of Imam Reza (Shia saint of miracles) is located.
According to the Islamic regime, "thugs" = anyone disobeying the regime, being gay, being openly displeased with the Mullah regime, protesting (even peacefully) the total lack of human rights, having political beliefs of any kind except Mullocracy, asking for social freedoms, being a Moslem of a different denomination, such as a Sunni, Bahai or Sufi. Or God forbid, being a Christian or Jew. Having Western style haircuts, wearing disapproved Western clothes, etc., etc., etc.
Please note the clothes on the five executed men . Four of them are wearing the baggy pants of local tribal people, some of whom in that region are Sunnis and many of them traditionally fierce fighters and inclined to live an independent life.
Forbidden boots which "arouse" men
(and allow jailers to rape the wearers and all females)
Again on clothes, women wearing knee length boots, even in snow, and/or a fur hat or similar warm head gear instead of a head scarf, began being arrested in droves for Un-Islamic apparel.
About 90% of women arrested for whatever reason, bitterly complain of being raped, often repeatedly by multiple jailers, while in custody.
Intent - beyond lascivious pleasure for the jailers - is to scare them into not doing anything, no matter how insignificant, to avoid another arrest AND to insult their menfolk and terrify them into submission to protect their women.
The photo of five men hanging is quite modest by Islamic Iran standards where they have had "L" or "U" shaped, light tables set up and as many as 16 men stood on them with a noose around their necks. The tables are then pulled from under them by guards at either end.
LAST MOMENTS OF A 14-YEAR OLD WHO ANNOYED AN ISLAMIC JUDGE FOR BEING "SASSY" BY VERBALLY DEFENDING HERSELF (TRUE STORY). She was lulled into not struggling by being told in a whisper this was just being done to scare her in public and that she was not going to be REALLY hanged.
The judge who condemned her personally placed the noose on her and gave the treacherous signal she was not expecting, to string her up.
He wanted her dead so that nobody could prove she was really only 14-years old not 16, as he had claimed in his legal presentation, to inflict the death sentence. Her body disappeared shortly afterward. So did he.
Hard to maintain a happy Xmas spirit when all this happens in the name of religion, even though it is a religion of body pieces, not of Christian peace and kindness.

SHE IS THE BEST ALLY YOU COULD CHOOSE - EVEN BETTER THAN MOSLEM BORN AND BRED OBAMA.
IT'S NOT THAT SHE'S A DEMOCRAT, IT'S THAT SHE IS "HELL-ERY" PERSONIFIED.
AFTER CHECKING THE VIDEO OF HER HISTORY AND APPARENT WHITE HOUSE SECRET SERVICE OPINIONS OF HER (THEY SHOULD KNOW), SCROLL DOWN.
I flew 4 Presidential support missions in the ns;-141 out of Dover AFB, DE.. Two for President Johnson and two for President Nixon.
Johnson was a first class jerk and on the two occasions I flew for him, if the Secret Service and their Liaison in the Pentagon hadn't intervened, we would have had to stay on the airplane for hours while he (Johnson) was off somewhere. Nixon never required that and the four (4) stops we made with him he was cordial to the Secret Service and to me and my crew.
We had a neighbor when I lived in DC who was part of the secret service presidential detail for many years. His stories of Kennedy and Johnson were the same as those I heard from the guys who flew the presidents' plane.
Yes, Kennedy did have Marilyn Monroe flown in for secret "dates," and LBJ was a typical Texas "good ole boy" womanizer. Nixon, Bush 41, and Carter never cheated on their wives.
Clinton cheated, but couldn't match Kennedy or LBJ in style or variety.
The information below is accurate: The elder Bush and current president Bush make it a point to thank and take care of the air crews who fly them around. When the president flies, there are several planes that also go, one carries the armored limo, another the security detail, plus usually a press aircraft.
Both Bushes made it a point to stay home on holidays, so the Air Force and security people could have a day with their families.
Hillary Clinton was arrogant and orally abusive to her security detail. She forbade her daughter, Chelsea, from exchanging pleasantries with them. Sometimes Chelsea, miffed at her mother's obvious conceit and mean spiritedness, ignored her demands and exchanged pleasantries regardless, but never in her mother's presence.
Chelsea really was a nice, kindhearted, and lovely young lady.
The consensus opinion was that Chelsea loved her Mom but did not like her. Hillary Clinton was continuously rude and abrasive to those who were charged to protect her life. Her security detail dutifully did their job, as professionals should, but they all loathed her and wanted to be on a different detail.
Hillary Clinton was despised by the Secret Service as a whole. Former President Bill Clinton was much more amiable than his wife. Often the Secret Service would cringe at the verbal attacks Hillary would use against her husband.
They were embarrassed for his sake by the manner and frequency in which she verbally insulted him, sometimes in the presence of the Secret Service, and sometimes behind closed doors.
Even behind closed doors Hillary Clinton would scream and holler so loudly that everyone could hear what she was saying. Many felt sorry for President Clinton and most wondered why he tolerated it instead of just divorcing his "attack dog" wife.
It was crystal clear that the Clintons neither liked nor respected each other and this was true long before the Monica Lewinsky scandal.Theirs was genuinely a "marriage of convenience."
Chelsea was much closer to her father than her mother, even after the Lewinsky scandal, which hurt her gravely. Bill Clinton did in fact have charisma, and occasionally would smile at or shake hands with his security detail. Still, he always displayed an obvious air of superiority towards them.
His security detail uniformly believed him to be disingenuous, false, and that he did nothing without a motive that in some way would enhance his image and political career.
He was polite, but not kind. They did not particularly like him and nobody trusted him.
Al Gore was the male version of Hillary Clinton.
They were friendlier toward each other than either of them were towards former President Clinton. They were not intimate, so please don't read that in. They were very close in a political way.
Tipper Gore was generally nice and pleasant. She initially liked Hillary but soon after the election she had her "pegged" and no longer liked her or associated with her except for events that were politically obligatory.
Al Gore was far more left wing than Bill Clinton. Al Gore resented Bill Clinton and thought he was too "centrist." He despised all Republicans.
His hatred was bitter and this was long before he announced for the Presidency. This hatred was something that he and Hillary had in common. They often said as much, even in the presence of their security detail. Neither of them trusted Bill Clinton and, the Secret Service opined, neither of them even liked him.
Bill Clinton did have some good qualities, whereas Al Gore and Hillary had none, in the view of their security details.
Al Gore, like Hillary, was very rude and arrogant toward his security detail. He was extremely unappreciative and would not hesitate to scold them in the presence of their peers for minor details over which they had no control.
Al Gore also looked down on them, as they finally observed and learned with certainty on one occasion. Al got angry at his offspring and pointed at his security detail and said, "Do you want to grow up and be like them?"
Word of this insult by the former Vice-President quickly spread and he became as disliked by the Secret Service as Hillary.
Most of them prayed Al Gore would not be elected President, and they really did have private celebrations in a few of their homes after President Bush won. This was not necessarily to celebrate President Bush's election, but to celebrate Al G ore's defeat.
Everyone in the Secret Service wants to be on First Lady Laura Bush's detail. Without exception, they concede that she is perhaps the nicest and most kind person they have ever had the privilege of serving.
Where Hillary patently refused to allow her picture to be taken with her security detail, Laura Bush doesn't even have to be asked, she offers.
She doesn't just shake their hand and say, "Thank you."
Very often, she will give members of her detail a kindhearted hug to express her appreciation. There is nothing false about her.
This is her genuine nature. Her security detail considers her to be a "breath of fresh air."
They joke that comparing Laura Bush with Hillary Clinton is like comparing "Mother Teresa" with the "Wicked Witch of the North."
Likewise, the Secret Service considers President Bush to be a gem of a man to work for. He always treats them with genuine respect and he always trusts and listens to their expert advice.
They really like the Crawford, Texas detail. Every time the president goes to Crawford he has a Bar-B-Q for his security detail and he helps serve their meals. He sits with them, eats with them, and talks with them. He knows each of them by their first name, and calls them by their first name as a show of affection. He always asks about their family, the names of which he always remembers.
They believe that he is deeply and genuinely appreciative of their service. They could not like, love, or respect anyone more than President Bush.
Most of them did not know they would feel this way, until they had an opportunity to work for him and learn that his manner was genuine and consistent. It has never changed since he began his Presidency. He always treats them with the utmost respect, kindness, and compassion.
YOU REALLY WANT TO FACE ISLAMIC THREAT LIKE THIS

The animals, pictured below the photo of the victims, car-jacked, then raped Christopher Newsom, cut off his penis, then set him on fire and fatally shot him several times while they forced his girlfriend, Channon Christian, to watch.
An even more cruel fate awaited her!
Channon Christian, was beaten and gang-raped in many ways for four days by all of them, while they took turns urinating on her.
Then they cut off her breast and put chemicals in her mouth ... and then murdered her.
Where "be" the Revs Al and Jesse?
Are they providing counsel and help to the families of the victims?
Of course not - the victims were white.
Why hasn't this received extended National coverage by the news media like the Duke "rape" case?
Oh, that's right - the victims were white.
Why hasn't the NAACP, ACLU, New York Times etc, called for an investigation?
Must be cause the victims were white.
Why hasn't the FBI been called in to investigate this as a hate crime?
Oh, that's right - the victims were white.
Alan note: Is this the same double standard that makes the Democrats and liberals, who scream at so-called injustice and then ignore it, also do the same with virulent Islamic jihad?
To appease it as they do with black reverse racism?
Or is it that there are enough black "muslims" inside the USA as voters or political power groups, resembling these animals, to provide an umbrella of fear for the jihadists - just as they do for their counterparts in the USA?
Islam quite simply preaches to kill or enslave anyone who differs with them. Even violently.
Other than being different, what did this white couple ever do to the black group who so violated them?
What makes our Congress forbid Christmas but in abject "dhimmitude" promote Islam's Ramadan?
U.S. Rep Diana DeGette, D-Colo.
Only weeks after voting for a resolution that "recognizes the Islamic faith as one of the great religions of the world," nine Democrats in the U.S. House refused to vote for a Christmas resolution that condemns the worldwide persecution of Christians.
U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., was on the list of those who endorsed the statement recognizing Islam, but refused to support the Christmas resolution that noted the holiday "is celebrated annually by Christians throughout the United States and around the world."
The Christmas resolution, like the Ramadan resolution, decried the violencethat targets religion around the world.
A spokesman for DeGette said her vote was because the Ramadan resolution which she endorsed, was about "rejecting religious extremism and promotingof religious tolerance."
OH SURE !!! SHE WENT TO POLITICANS SCHOOL TO COME OUT WITH THIS ASSHOLE STATEMENT. Islam is not religiously extreme?
.The spokesman, Chris Aaron, however, said DeGette is a "strong supporter of separation of church and state and her view was that Congress should not favor one religion over another. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT SHE DID!!!!!!!!
Alan note: Does THIS FEMALE DHIMMIE not realize that in Islam the religion IS the State? And any separation is against the word of Allah and punishable by death?
"She felt this resolution (recognizing Christmas and condemning persecutionof Christians) promoted Christianity over other religions," he added.
Other Democrats who supported the acknowledgment of Islam's Ramadan but refused a similar recognition for Christianity's Christmas included:
GaryAckerman and Yvette Clarke of N.Y.,
Alcee Hastings, Fla.,
Barbara Lee, Fortney Stark and Lynn Woolsey, Calif.,
Jim McDermott, Wash., and
Both resolutions, carrying similar wording, ultimately were approved. But the American Family Association of Pennsylvania also raised the issue of representatives supporting Ramadan, but refusing to offer the same supportfor Christmas.
"We are very pleased that 17 of our 19 congressmen voted to recognize the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.
Congressman John Murtha was one of 40 who did NOT vote ( A REAL CHICKEN S--T FOR SURE ) and unfortunately Congresswoman Allyson Schwartzd ecided to simply vote 'present' rather than take a stand on such a controversial issue as Christmas," said Diane Gramley, president.
She noted on Oct. 2, Schwartz "did not hesitate" to vote for a resolution to support the religion "of the 19 hijackers of 9/11 who brought down the World Trade Center, flew their airliner/missile into the Pentagon, and caused the death of the crew and passengers of Flight 93 as it crashed into a field outside Shanksville, Pa."
"I believe there are more Christians in her district than Muslims and they deserve an explanation for her vote last night," Gramley said.
According to Liberty Counsel, the Christmas resolution was approved with nine "no" votes. Ten others voted "present" and 40 refused to vote at all.
"Amazingly, all but two of the representatives who answered "present" or voted against the Christmas resolution voted in favor of a resolution recognizing Ramadan, even though much of the language was similar," the group said.
The Ramadan resolution began: Whereas Ramadan is the holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal for Muslims worldwide, and is the 9th month of the Muslim calendar year; and
Whereas the observance of the Islamic holy month of Ramandan commenced at dusk on September 13, 2007, and continues for one lunar month: …
"The Christmas resolution started: Whereas Christmas, a holiday of great significance to Americans and many other cultures and nationalities, is celebrated annually by Christians throughout the United States and the world...
Whereas on December 25 of each calendar year, American Christians observe Christmas, the holiday celebrating the birth of their savior, Jesus Christ...
Whereas many Christians and non-Christians throughout the United States and the rest ofthe world, celebrate Christmas as a time to serve others:
"The Ramadan resolution then acknowledged "the Islamic faith as one of the great religions of the world," expressed "friendship and support for Muslims" noted "the onset of Ramadan," and rejected "hatred, bigotry, and violence directed against Muslims."
It also "commends Muslims … who have privatelyand publicly rejected interpretations and movements of Islam that justify and encourage hatred."
The Christmas resolution continued to acknowledge "the Christian faith as one of the great religions of the world," expressed "continued support for Christians," noted the historical importance of Christmas, the role "played by Christians and Christianity in the founding of the United States," and rejected "bigotry and persecution directed against Christians, both in theUnited States and worldwide."
"Notice that the Christmas resolution uses similar language. It is astonishing that those who supported the Ramadan Resolution would vote against the Christmas Resolution," Liberty Counsel said.
The group suggested voters check the lists for votes by their representatives. "If they voted against Christmas and in favor of Ramadan, respectfully point out their hypocrisy," the group said.
Concerned Women for America said the true message of Christmas is under assault in the U.S.
Shari Rendall, director of the group's legislation and public policy divisions, noted Congress earlier approved not only the endorsement of Ramadan but also another resolution concern the Hindu religion.
"It astounds me that any member of Congress would oppose legislation that recognizes the important of Christmas in our country, particularly in light of the fact that earlier this year Congress passed two separate resolutions honoring the Hindu and Islamic religions…"
