TOMMY ROBINSON - BRITISH POLITICAL PRISONER
THANK YOU, OVER AND OVER AGAIN
Last week we sent out a request for help. The response has been overwhelming. Tommy has gone from near despair to elation. He just did not think he could face another prison term among Islamic violent offenders. He was sure he would be killed. Now there is more than enough money for good legal representation - the first time Tommy has had that.
First, a huge thank you from Tommy. Then, a few of the many wishes that camealong with the donations. Finally, a few words from a couple of the friends who got this going.
THANK YOU FROM TOMMY ROBINSON
Many of the people who responded were happy for the chance to help Tommy:
I am a War Pensioner on a pittance pension. Regardless, I have just made a small donation of approx £15. I have already bought the Kindle version of the book. Please pass my best wishes to the lad. He is a political prisoner and I did not fight for my country to see things like this happen.
Very Good Luck to you, Tommy. The battle you are fighting is the most important one, not just in the UK, but for the enlightened west.
Tommy, if I had more, I'd give it to you. I support you 100%. Always faithful!
Please pass on my best wishes to the bravest man in England and thanks for never giving in.
We never imagined we'd hit our goal - £12,000.00, which is the fee for good legal representation. That's almost US $24,000. About CAD $35,000.
Last time when Tommy was faced with court, the situation was also dangerous. How much was raised? £600 pounds.
This time, there was massive generosity. People gave what they could. The donations kept coming in. A couple were huge: $3000 and $2000. Many were small. So far, 823 people have contributed. Thank you to each and every one of you. It means so much to Tommy and to all of us.
Where are we now? We not only hit our goal. We passed it, and still the donations kept coming in. We have just passed £24,000 - twice our goal.
Every bit is needed for the legal battle ahead. Tommy also has a wife and 3 children to take care of.
We'll keep you updated.
HOW DID WE DO IT?
Our "team" kept expanding.
Here's how things started:
A week ago, on Sunday, April 3, a close friend of Tommy's emailed Valerie, another good friend. Tommy was in despair. Could anything be done? Valerie thought of crowd funding, but wasn't internet savvy. So she reached out to Elsa, a long time fan of Tommy's with more internet skills. Elsa tried a crowd funding site, but got blocked because this is a legal issue. So Elsa created a web page and a way to donate.
How did we reach people? Valerie sends out weekly from ACT for Canada. On Monday, she sent out to everyone on her list about Tommy.
All Elsa's sites mysteriously crashed in the middle of this drive, on Thursday night, and most were still not back online 4 days later - though she managed to get the fund raising site, WestInDanger, back online within 12 hours!!!
That was crucial. Because the story was also picked up by BlazingCatFur, GatesOfVienna, and eventually Breitbart. Plus many of you have passed it on. Donations have come from Australia, Norway, India, the States, Canada, Indonesia, etc. A major amount has come from Great Britain.
It's great to see Tommy well-armed for the upcoming court case, instead of having only a court-appointed lawyer - a lawyer from the same state that has been radically unjust to him.
And that brings up more thank you's - Valerie's and Elsa's.
Words fail me – which they mercifully rarely do – to express my profound gratitude and awe for what TEAM TOMMY was able to achieve. What we accomplished in one week defies description.
I am such a strong believer in the Lord. So – HE is smiling down upon us – because HE loves Tommy and believes in him – and us – and I believe that is why the campaign has been and will continue to be so successful. Tommy has paid a great price and has stood alone for so many years and now it’s time for him to have a little peace. The outpouring of love has overwhelmed him. And I think all of us.
I feel this morning that of all my accomplishments in fundraising over the years – this is what I am most proud of.
I've never done fund raising, but have admired Tommy for years. When Valerie called, I was happy to do what I could. I'm so enormously pleased at the outpouring of generosity and care - and at hearing about how much good it did Tommy. I had no idea how ready people would be to help. None of us did. And then somehow, my sites mysteriously crashed - after no problems for 12 years. That was another surprise!!
Some thoughts. That so many people gave is a triumph. We're way ahead with this generosity. But the battle is not won. We haven't ended the kind of injustice that Tommy has faced, that the girls "groomed" by Islamic rape gangs face, and on.
Another thought. Those we're up against are bullies. Once they see the tide has turned, many will cave.
This outpouring of generosity may well be a sign that the tide is turning - that people are recognizing the danger and willing to donate to help end the injustice.
So, an enormous thank you to everyone who gave.
And then, a final thought. I've always loved stories about people fighting injustice.
But something has changed. It isn't someone black facing injustice. It's Tommy, an indigenous white man, fighting for justice against oppressors from both inside and outside his society. Enemy of the State, in print or in kindle.
In case you'd like to give more, or would like to pass on this call for help,everything will go 100% directly to Tommy Robinson.

Muslims Eat Their Own Children
"Speaking through an American interpreter, Lieutenant David Wallach who is a native Arabic speaker, the Iraqi official related how al Qaeda united these gangs who then became absorbed into “al Qaeda.” They recruited boys born during the years 1991, 92 and 93 who were each given weapons, including pistols, a bicycle and a phone (with phone cards paid) and a salary of $100 per month, all courtesy of al Qaeda. These boys were used for kidnapping, torturing and murdering people. At first, he said, they would only target Shia, but over time the new al Qaeda directed attacks against Sunni, and then anyone who thought differently. The official reported that on a couple of occasions in Baqubah, al Qaeda invited to lunch families they wanted to convert to their way of thinking. In each instance, the family had a boy, he said, who was about 11 years old. As LT David Wallach interpreted the man’s words, I saw Wallach go blank and silent. He stopped interpreting for a moment. I asked Wallach, “What did he say?” Wallach said that at these luncheons, the families were sat down to eat. And then their boy was brought in with his mouth stuffed. The boy had been baked. Al Qaeda served the boy to his family." -- Michael Yon

T.R. On Islam
The following passages were written in 1916 in Teddy Roosevelt’s book, “Fear God and Take Your Own Part”, reproduced in “What Every American Needs to Know About the Qur’an” by William Federer.
Christianity is not the creed of Asia and Africa at this moment solely because the seventh century Christians of Asia and Africa had trained themselves not to fight, whereas the Moslems were trained to fight.Christianity was saved in Europe solely because the peoples of Europe fought. If the peoples of Europe in the seventh and eighth centuries, an on up to and including the seventeenth century, had not possessed a military equality with, and gradually a growing superiority over the Mohammedans who invaded Europe, Europe would at this moment be Mohammedan and the Christian religion would be exterminated. Wherever the Mohammedans have had complete sway, wherever the Christians have been unable to resist them by the sword, Christianity has ultimately disappeared. From the hammer of Charles Martel to the sword of Sobieski, Christianity owed its safety in Europe to the fact that it was able to show that it could and would fight as well as the Mohammedan aggressor. …..The civilization of Europe, American and Australia exists today at all only because of the victories of civilized man over the enemies of civilization because of victories through the centuries from Charles Martel in the eighth century and those of John Sobieski in the seventeenth century. During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king, the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the two continents; and today, nobody can find in them any “social values” whatever, in the sense in which we use the words, so far as the sphere of Mohammedan influences are concerned.There are such “social values” today in Europe, America and Australia only because during those thousand years, the Christians of Europe possessed the warlike power to do what the Christians of Asia and Africa had failed to do — that is, to beat back the Moslem invader.
.....victorious with terror
"I have been made victorious with terror"
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror (cast in the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and put in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the Prophet did not benefit by them).

THE S.E.A.L. MOTTO
We train for war and fight to win. I stand ready to bring the full spectrum of combat power to bear in order to achieve my mission and the goals established by my country. The execution of my duties will be swift and violent when required, yet guided by the very principles I serve to defend.
Brave men have fought and died building the proud tradition and feared reputation that I am bound to uphold. In the worst of conditions, the legacy of my teammates steadies my resolve and silently guides my every deed. I will not fail.

Danger To The West
The biggest danger to the West is this climate of defeatism, appeasement, and cultural collapse now on display for the Islamists to see. This is the single biggest impetus to Islamist terrorism. We all have to grasp that terrorism is not the biggest threat we face. The biggest threat is the ideology that drives it. It’s not enough to fight terror, vital though that is. The principal battleground is the world of ideas, the battle for hearts and minds. The Islamists see this very clearly. They understand that psychological warfare — the fomenting of paranoia, resentment, hysteria, and demoralization — is their most effective weapon. If they can hijack the human mind to the cause of hatred and lies, they have an army; and if they can bamboozle and demoralize their victims, they will win.
