The 4 Freedoms Library

It takes a nation to protect the nation

Please note, this is 'influential' from the Muslim point of view, but thats probably very similar to our own. With thanks to EducateUSA for this document.

What follows below is information describing some features and data in the large attachment. It is from Muslims in their own words but worth a look. A few comments of mine have been added in red-colored font below. The speaker coming to Temple Beth Israel is mentioned below and in the document. Comments, suggestions and corrections are welcome.

The attached document: THE 500 MOST INFLUENTIAL MUSLIMS – 2009 –
First Edition – 2009
Chief Editors: (The notorious apologist for Islam and non-Muslim author) professor John Esposito and professor Kalin Ibrahim.

Sponsors: The [Saudi] Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center and The Prince Alwaleed Bin Tala Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, www.

As I recall: it was Saudi prince Alwaleed who offered to Mayor Rudy Giuliani the $10 million he spurned for New York City as it lay smoking after 9/11; and one or the other of Alwaleed or the Royals or both have given $20 million to each of Harvard and Georgetown universities for Islamic Da’wa (the establishment and maintenance of "Middle East Studies" propaganda centers in the two universities).

Some fragmentary and disordered comments on content. See attachment's Table of Contents:

A glossary; descriptive summaries of Islam, various schools of Islamic jurisprudence. Ideological divisions: Traditional 96% (90% Sunni), Modern 1% (held in derision), Fundamentalist 3%.

Pictures and biographical data for the top 50 personalities of the 500.

Keith Ellison, Muslim Democrat Congressman from Minnesota as, in effect, number 51--the first among 450 other Muslims of influence.

Note the celebration of Ellison's being "sworn in" ;-) as our first Muslim Congressman using Thomas Jefferson’s Koran. Ironically, Jefferson used that Koran to strategize against America's first
Islamic enemy, the Barbary Pirates. Further, any oath from a Muslim to hold the Constitution as the highest law of the land is meaningless--all the more meaningless if sworn on the scriptural Kings
X of the Koran than it would be if sworn on the Bible. A Muslim who would truly so swear (in the lands of Islam) would be subject to execution. He cannot hold any law to be higher than Sharia which calls for Islam to dominate all peoples. Figuratively, swearing on the Koran is swearing with fingers of both hands crossed behind one's back.

A few familiar names among the 500: Qaradawi and Usmani and others who have been mentioned in our talks about Sharia Compliant Finance and other topics; Khan, the Pakistani nuclear physicist; the
influential Swiss, Tariq Ramadan; Denmark's--genuine, I believe--Modernist Muslim, Nasser Khader; (Ingrid Mattson, a female convert and the first female president of the largest Muslim organization in America, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); scholar Dr. Yahya M. Michot (from Belgium) who will speak at Temple Beth Israel and other Fresno venues February 19 – 21, 2010; and "radicals"Ayman Zawihiri and Osama bin Laden.

Note: Ingrid Mattson, a professor at Hartford Seminary, Hartford, Connecticut, chaired the seminary search committee that selected Dr. Yahya M. Michot who is a professor at the seminary.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
