From the Religion of Peace: Khilafah Conference 2009, "A New, Better Type of Suffering"

From Atlas Shrugs, "HIZB-UT-TAHRIR Convention in Chicago: Would They Host a Neo-Nazi Convention?":

Back on June 18th, I published the video and post ISLAM IN AMERICA: "FALL OF CAPITALISM AND RISE OF ISLAM", a conference planning jihad and the take over of America. No media, no politician, no statesman has spoken against this century's Nazis staging a huge conference to attack and destroy America -- in Chicago. If this were a KKK conference or some white supremacist conference, they would descend like the locusts that they are.

Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA) indicated that it had transitioned from its covert status to a public phase of operations by issuing an announcement, signed in its own name, that it would host a conference in July 2009 to support the establishment of a Caliphate. The promotional video can be viewed on YouTube. The event, titled "The Fall of Capitalism and Rise of Islam," is scheduled for Sunday, July 19th, 2009, at the Aqsa School in Bridgeview, Illinois.

A great American Atlas reader called the Hilton hotel to politely express her outrage that they would allow a radical Islamic convention whose mission by objective is the overthrow of the American government and the implementation of an Islamic state in America. Here is his response.

Hi Pamela--I took it upon myself to call the general manager of the Hilton in Chicago which agreed to contract with the HTA group. I asked him if he would have agreed to allow a neo-Nazi or Holocaust-denying convention to book at his hotel. He was very polite, told me that the group had misrepresented themselves at the time they booked the hotel and that he had been misquoted by Fox News. He was not happy that they were there but according to their lawyers they could not cancel the booking b/c it would be discriminatory (or words to that effect). Then he told me the party line bullshit about how the HTA is not on the terror list, etc. I informed him that they are indeed considered a terror group by countries like Russia and suggested that he attend the conference to hear just what was being said about the West and the US in particular, if he was even allowed to.

I told him that as a frequent traveler and Hilton Honors member who stays at Waldorf-Astoria collection hotels, I would be reconsidering going to them in the future because of this. It's really an outrage that hotels can't or won't turn down business of this sort because of the almighty dollar or fear of litigation. Once again the enemy using our freedoms against us to try to destroy us. Maybe Hilton's CEO should hear from more of us about this...

Take care and thanks for all you do-- ...

If I were POTUS, that hideous conference would be interrupted in a manner most rude.
