Who Is Allah?

I once took a Middle East archeology course, back when "Muslims" were "Moslems". The professor was a scholar of Egyptology, had directed several digs in North Africa. She was an inspiring lecturer, and somewhere in the middle of the course, she invited her students to do a comparison of the Koran with the Old Testament. I took her up on it, because I wanted a A in the course, but mainly because even a cursory comparison had me laughing out loud. Seems old war-mongering Mohammed lifted, almost verbatum, passages and certainly ideas and tales from the Bible, and old pagan ideas as well. For an "inspired" vision, it was decidedly cheesy.

After awhile (I had no interest in the Koran) I gave it up because the Koran was so transparently riding on the coat-tails of the Bible for any authority. In fact the spiritual well-being of the world hangs on the question of authority: to what or to whom do we give our allegiance? There are, and will be, consequences - both now and after our so-called "death". I know the body dies, but I am not the body. As C.S. Lewis so succinctly put it: "You do not have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body."

I do not believe I will die, and if so then why am I here on earth, except to remember who I am? Indeed, my one question of any importance is: Who am I? Jesus gave us some clues, and I believe in Jesus's spiritual authority, which was in no way diminished by his "death".

Now, granted, it's been a long time since my amateurish investigation, but now along comes Soeren Kern, who further debunks the Koran, and it's claim on "the one true God" - Allah.

Does it matter? Oh, it matters a great deal. Maybe not to the weak-kneed, kow-towing, European Islam apologists. But it matters to me. It may not matter to God what we call Him, but it is of supreme importance that I get it right. What you do is your affair.

Who Is Allah?

By Soeren Kern

Europeans love to mock the salience of religion in American society, but they won't be laughing for very long. The de-Christianization of Europe in the name of "tolerance" is rapidly driving the spiritually shiftless continent into the arms of Islam. And now, amidst the postmodern theological confusion that defines contemporary Europe, even Catholic clergy are jumping on the Islamomania bandwagon.

The latest post-Christian theological spectacle comes to us from the Netherlands (of Ayaan Hirsi Ali fame), where the Roman Catholic Bishop of Breda, Tiny Muskens, says he wants Christians to start calling God "Allah" because he believes such a gesture would promote "rapprochement between Christianity and Islam". Appearing on Dutch television, the 71-year-old cleric said: "Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? ... What does God care what we call him?"

Inquiring minds want to know: If the bishop really thinks the names "God" and "Allah" are interchangeable, why doesn't he ask Muslims to start calling Allah "Yahweh", the biblical name for God? But he won't, because he knows they won't.

Indeed, just because Christianity, Judaism and Islam are called "monotheistic" faiths, it does not follow that Christians, Jews and Muslims pray to the same God. So for those pre-postmoderns who believe that words still mean something, a quick survey of archaeology, history and theology-accompanied by a dose of common sense-can answer the question of whether the Allah of Islam is really the God of the Bible.

What Archaeology Says about Allah

Muslims claim that in pre-Islamic times, "Allah" was the biblical God of the Patriarchs, prophets and apostles. Indeed, the credibility of Islam as a religion stands or falls on its core claim of historical continuity with Judaism and Christianity. No wonder, then, that many Muslims get uppity when the claims of Islam are subjected to the hard science of archaeology.

Because archaeology provides irrefutable evidence that Allah, far from being the biblical God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, was actually the pre-Islamic pagan moon-god. Indeed, it is an established archaeological fact that worship of the moon-god was the main religion of the ancient Middle East.

But what about the Arabian Peninsula, where Mohammed (570-632) launched Islam? During the last two centuries, prominent archaeologists have unearthed thousands of inscriptions which prove beyond any doubt that the dominant religion of Arabia during Mohammed's day was the cult of the moon-god.

In fact, for generations before Mohammed was born, the Arabs worshipped some 360 pagan gods housed at a stone temple in Mecca called the Kabah. According to archaeologists, the chief deity of Mecca was the moon-god called al-ilah (meaning the god or the idol), which was shortened to Allah in pre-Islamic times. Pagan Arabs even used Allah in the names they gave themselves: Mohammed's father (Abdallah), for example, had Allah as part of his name.

What History Says about Allah

Historians say that pre-Islamic Arabs worshipped the moon-god by bowing in prayer toward Mecca several times a day. They would also make a pilgrimage to Mecca, run around the Kabah seven times and throw stones at the devil. And they fasted for one month, which began with the appearance of the crescent moon and ended when the crescent moon reappeared.

These same rites form the core of Islam today: Muslims bow in prayer toward Mecca; they make a pilgrimage to Mecca and run around the Kabah seven times; and they still throw stones at the devil. They also observe the fast of Ramadan, which begins and ends with the crescent moon.

Moreover, the ancient symbol of the pagan moon-god, the crescent moon, is the official symbol of Islam; it appears on the flags of Muslim countries, as well as on the tops of mosques and minarets everywhere.

Historians say that Mohammed, who as a traveling trader was exposed to Judaism and Christianity during his visits to different parts of the Middle East, tried to mimic those monotheistic faiths by taking Allah, the main deity within the Arabian pantheon, and making it the only god. Indeed, the basic confession of Islam is not that "Allah is Great" but that "Allah is Greater". Greater than all the other idols, that is.

But Islam also draws from other pagan traditions. For example, the tale of Mohammed's night journey into heaven parallels the Zoroastrian story of Arta Viraf. Zoroastrianism also inspired the Islamic belief that dark-eyed virgins await every man who enters heaven. And the Islamic ritual of praying five times a day? That, historians say, originates with the Sabeans, Syrian pagans who practiced an ecumenical mixture of Babylonian and Hellenic religion.

No surprise, then, that some scholars refer to Islam as monotheistic heathenism.

What Theology Says about Allah

Muslims claim that Islam is Judaism and Christianity reformed. They say the Koran confirms the truth of the Torah and the Gospels. But since those texts did not jibe with Mohammad's beliefs, they accuse Jews and Christians of changing and distorting the original versions. Muslims therefore assert that the Koran "clarifies" the Bible.

Even if that were the case, the Koran and the Bible present ideas about God (especially about His character) that are so diametrically opposed that any reasonable observer would conclude that each book refers to a distinct deity.

The Koran, for example, states unequivocally that Allah is an unknowable and non-personal deity. By contrast, the God of the Bible allows Himself to be known and desires fellowship with human beings on a personal basis. Indeed, the Bible says that Abraham (the same Abraham whom Muslims say they venerate) was the "friend of God."

The Koran also portrays Allah as a vindictive deity who hates sinners and desires to afflict them. But the Bible says God is love.Moreover, the New Testament teaches that God loved humanity so much that He came to earth to pay the debt for man's sin, and that that act of grace is available for free to anyone who believes Jesus Christ is their personal Savior. But Islam denies that Christ was God or that He died in order to save humanity. Indeed, Allah does not provide any way for man to be reconciled to God.

And the theological differences go on and on, so much so that the God of the Bible cannot possibly be the Allah worshipped in Islam. Unless, of course, a Dutch bishop says so.

Allah and Eurabia

Mohammed thought the Jews and Christians of his day would receive him as a prophet. But the Bible says that any new revelation must agree with what is already established in Scripture (Isaiah 8:20). So they rejected his Allah as a false god. And Mohammed replied by setting his Islam on a permanent warpath against Judaism and Christianity that continues to this day.

The Dutch bishop and other Muslim fellow travelers think they can buy a fake peace with Islam by playing relativistic word games as a part of an "inter-faith" dialogue. But Muslims understand much better than do post-modern Europeans that ecumenical appeasement is a symptom of a Judeo-Christian civilization that is weak and dying.

The irony is that the real danger from Islam stems not so much from ordinary Muslims as it does from sickly Europeans who have subverted their Judeo-Christian heritage in search of secular hedonism. Because they live only for the moment, they are willing submit to anything, including Islam, as long as it doesn't interfere with the pursuit of pleasure today.

It has been more than 50 years since the late Christian apologist C.S. Lewis first warned about Western Civilization's disastrous lurch into post-Christianity. But even he would be surprised to see how quickly Islam is filling the religious and cultural vacuum that is post-Christian Europe.

It's not that Europeans haven't been forewarned. It's that they couldn't care less.
P.S. I got a B in the course. I was looking for meaning, the prof was looking for scholarship. Ah, well. So. Allah is a moon-god? Ho-hum...

Life on the High Plains

I'm back. Re-built the computer, starting over. All research, notes, etc - gone. But maybe Bernie is right: starting over can be a blessing. My memory holds what is good and true about America, and who our enemies are.

I'm living in a trailer
on the high plains of Colorado - on the Comanche National Grasslands, near the Arkansas River - a dream of mine for a long time. This is my back yard. This is my next-door neighbor...a horse, who's not impressed with me. Beautiful.
Actually, it's in a trailer park, and I do have other neighbors. When the owner showed me this trailer, with the views (there's more - much more), I almost started hyperventilating. It's on a gravel road, and it's perfect.

It will take me some time to adjust - I'm still working with the phone company, trying to get a reliable dsl connection, but when I have all my news sources in place, I'll be back on the firing line.

My thanks to those who commiserated with me. See you soon.

Thursday, August 09, 2007


This is a note to say that I was hacked while checking out car insurance quotes, and my hard drive was re-written with zeros. And the bios was flashed as well, meaning I have some work to do to get back to normal. But since I am moving to Colorado in a couple of weeks, I decided to postpone tackling that job. I will post whenever I can. I am currently in a library in Jersey City, having found a lull in the swarm of kids who frequent this place. But all my bookmarks, and much of my base for research are gone. C'est la vie. Gotta go.

Germany Encourages Incest

"When men cease to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing anything." - G.K. Chesterton

Source - World Net Daily

According to the Polish daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita, this booklet is an obligatory read in nine German regions. It is used for training nursery, kindergarten and elementary school teachers.

German Government Publication Promotes Incestuous Pedophilia as Healthy Sex Ed -
Michael O'Brien, author on crisis of culture in West, says
"this German state intervention in family life is a new level of auto-destruction"

BERLIN, July 30, 2007 ( - Booklets from a subsidiary of the German government's Ministry for Family Affairs encourage parents to sexually massage their children as young as 1 to 3 years of age.

Two 40-page booklets entitled, "Love, Body and Playing Doctor" by the German Federal Health Education Center (Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung - BZgA) are aimed at parents - the first addressing children from 1-3 and the other children from 4-6 years of age.

"Fathers do not devote enough attention to the clitoris and vagina of their daughters. Their caresses too seldom pertain to these regions, while this is the only way the girls can develop a sense of pride in their sex," reads the booklet regarding 1-3 year olds. The authors rationalize, "The child touches all parts of their father's body, sometimes arousing him. The father should do the same."

Canadian author and public speaker Michael O'Brien who has written and spoken extensively about the crisis of culture in the West spoke to about the shocking and extremely disturbing phenomenon.

It is, he said, "State-encouraged incest, which in most civilized societies is a crime." The development is, he suggests, a natural outcome of the rejection of the Judeo-Christian moral order.

"The imposed social revolution that has swept the western world is moving to a new stage as it works out the logical consequences of its view of man's value," said O'Brien. "It is merely obeying its strictly materialist philosophy of man. If man is no more than a creature created for pleasure or power. If he is no more than a cell in the social organism, then no moral standards, no psychological truths, no spiritual truths can refute the 'will to power' and the 'will to pleasure'."

The pamphlet advises parents to permit young children "unlimited masturbation" except where physical injury becomes apparent. It advises: "Children should learn that there is no such thing as shameful parts of the body. The body is a home, which you should be proud of." For ages 4-6, the booklet recommends teaching children the movements of copulation.

Another product of the BZgA is a song book aimed at children of four and slightly older which includes several songs espousing masturbation. The song-book entitled "Nose, belly and bum" includes one song with the following lyrics: "When I touch my body, I discover what I have. I have a vagina, because I am a girl. Vagina is not only for peeing. When I touch it, I feel a pleasant

"The wiser and deeper position of most civilizations recognized that children need a period of innocence," commented O'Brien. "Now the state, the German state, is encouraging destruction of this state of innocence," he added. "This is consistent with the materialist philosophy that sees all moral norms and all truths about human nature as repressive. Pleasure and their distorted concept of freedom are their only guiding principles."
read the rest...

I hesitated,
only for a moment, to post this. Where does it all stop? The relative humanist view is already in full swing here in America.
On July 2nd, I wrote:
The man who considers himself Godless is in a precarious position, because there is no such thing. Every act which you perform is offered as a sacrifice to something, be it an idea, a person, a thing, or a power in the mind or heart. Everyone worships something. The question is, what?
The booklet's assertion is not only wrong - it sets the stage for a complete betrayal of a child's love for her father. This is madness.

This kind of thinking reflects the impasse of the new age morality. If the human race doesn't wake up soon, there will be no stopping the slide into abject moral depravity, and the social fabric of our lives will be ripped beyond all reasonable repair. The ACLU must be quite pleased with this development.

The Cafeteria Is Closed has more here, and here. Yeah, it gets worse...

Moderate Islam Is No Islam

For the past six months I have been digging into and reporting on various aspects of the US Government. America as a sovereign entity is under attack on many fronts. With the conspiracy of corporate America, the leftist judges, academicians and especially the leftist media (98% of all mainstream media), America is poised to become a socialist state.

In many ways America has already become a de facto socialistic entity by virtue of the way its government has come to function; in the same way our big corporations have become de facto fascist regimes by virtue of the PPP's, the Public-Private Partnerships, in which our government's socialistic goals have melded with corporate goals of market share and profit-making to the exclusion of civic responsibility.

I studied the history and strategy of the cultural humanists, the cultural Marxists. The picture I have come away with is that the university leftists, supported by the socialist agenda of the philanthropic organizations (Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie, etc) have basically done their job over the past 115 years or so. The leftist law schools have put their players in place in government, and the leftist judges, along with the Department of Justice, will continue to tear down our ability to defend ourselves, even as they support the government's plan to complete the job of empowering the SPP, the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.

Word is, the US Army will form an impenetrable barrier around the upcoming SPP meeting in Canada on Aug 20, and 21st, 2007. And the Canadians ain't happy about it. Neither am I. They wouldn't dare try and pull that stunt on American soil- not yet, not yet. The New World Order is the next stop on this train.

Our government through its shadow governance of the CFR, The Trilateral Commission, and their many satellite functionaries, has assured the corporate boards of directors that the larger, global sense of community is just and proper. American sovereignty is standing in the way of the "sustainable economy" meme, and the socialist's goal is it's abolishment, plain and simple. The plan of the leftist media is to slant all news and pander to gays, illegal immigrants, etc. in a display of misplaced compassion. To discredit American values and distract the American people from discovering the truth about where America is heading.

And boy, do we like to be distracted. It is time to say, "enough" - instead, Americans are saying, "ho-hum". America is becoming a nation of whining sheep. The middle class has essentially vanished, and it was the middle class, the working families, the community-based unity which held our values intact by living them. We appear to have two classes, divided economically into the working rich and the working poor.

Though any radicalized enemy bent on violence can bring harm to the US, I do not fear the Islamic terrorists. What I fear, truly fear, is the radical leftist slant of our mis-guided, legislating from the bench federal judges, our government and the media, whose goal is to bring about the demise of American culture and values, values which made America strong. It has been said, often, that radical leftism is a mental disorder, a dis-ease, and I concur with that assessment.

What is especially egregious is the war on our children's minds and spiritual well-being. I believe there is a special place in Hell for the ones in our society who are responsible for that particular betrayal. And I hope they go there soon. I hope they rot there forever. Knowing the enemy's goal, I have spoken for and encouraged parents to keep their children out of the clutches of the socialist personality factories called the public schools. I will continue to do so.

In order to look into the way our American way of life is being attacked, I had to turn my attention away from the other evil, coiled and ready to strike at the fabric of American life, values, customs: the Islamists. I will not call them "radical", because they are all radical, or poised to accept the radical into their midst. If I have turned my attention away for a moment, I have not forgotten them nor their evil design upon our culture.

But we will never be beaten by our enemies; rather we are being betrayed by our government.

Many of my earlier posts concern the truth about Islam, the evils of Islamism. Check them out.

I do not accept Muslims in our country. I will not accept them in our midst. Not even the so-called, 'moderate Muslims'. I know that there are people who say we must find a way to work with the moderates. I disagree. Most out-spoken Muslims are not true Muslims, and will never be able to effect change within the Muslim mind-set, based on hate and intolerance.

If the "moderate Muslims" have not risen up, separated and expelled the radical ideology of the Qur'an, they will not do so, and it is unreasonable to expect that they can or will. Most 'moderate Muslims' will await the outcome of this ideological war, going along with whatever is decided by the radical Imams who are taking over the mosques. Meanwhile, they will continue to thrive under the largess of American good-will. We can't afford our 'moderate Muslims' living among us. In the end they will turn on us.

I have no desire to help Muslims cast out the radical preachers of the Muslim caliphate. Islam is essentially an ideology of hate of the other. They have no place in America. Organizations like CAIR are the epitome of deceit and must be expelled from our shores. That they haven't already been expelled speaks volumes about our so-called 'war on terror', and the mind-set of our government officials. The problem lies primarily, not with the Islamists, but with the governmental policies of appeasement.

On the plus side, their are many organizations and individuals who are working to expose and de-fang the Islamists, both on our shores, in Australia, in the UK, and on the European continent. Frankly, I have no answer to the appeasing harbingers of dhimmitude, except to try and shield the innocent from the virus, called Islam.

Some of you will like this recording by Stuck Mojo, some will not. The little arrow on the lower left will stop it from playing. I don't even like rap, but I liked this song well enough to buy the CD. It is laced with profanity and filled with outrage.

By Amil Imani

We humans are torn each day by conflict, sometimes in our profession, other times in our family, sometimes in our country and in the world at large. Human beings are unique. We are driven to search for meaning of things. We want to make sense out of things and find a purpose to continue.

I believe that there is an unfathomable Being who is the Fashioner of this universe, including us. We refer to this Being as God, He, and so forth, in a futile attempt to encapsulate this Being into our extremely finite minds.

I also believe that this Being is not a dot commer. He doesn't sit around and wait to fill orders or requests. Neither does He interfere in the details of our lives. What He has done and does, to my understanding, is to establish certain rules and parameters that give each one of us a tremendous leeway on how to play the game of life.

Each one of us, according to these rules and parameters, receives a "hand" for playing the game. It really doesn't matter what kind of hand we start with, it matters how well we play the hand we are dealt. Do we enlist ourselves in the service of good and combat evil, or do we just squander away our time? (emp. added)

I believe that prayers are primarily for giving us comfort, for calming us down, for helping us take the steps needed to mend our ways, to do all we can to be worthy humans. Also to clear our hearts and heads from the dross of daily worldly entanglement, to help put matters in proper perspective, to live at peace with both our gifts as well as our limitations, to aid us in entertaining good thoughts, uttering good speech and doing good deeds.

When prayers are said with the above mindset, they are already answered prayers. Death is inevitable. It is the journey that invariably follows birth, sooner or later. Let us hope that we all do justice to our gift of humanness in this life and wing to the next with minimal sense of shame and shortcoming.

I believe we all have a purpose in life. We all are here for a reason and we can't leave before our time is up. We have to put in the time. Putting in the time is the right of passage, right? They asked Abdu'l-Baha, son of the founder and second leader of the Bahá'í Faith, about the idea of committing suicide or wanting to hasten one's death, since many writings praise the next life so much that some want to get on with it and get there. He said that the next life is immensely glorious. But, committing suicide and going there is like going to a magnificent banquet uninvited. I like the metaphor. Right now, we are here and must do what we must and put up with whatever comes our way, both good and not so good. So let us stay put and keep on earning the ticket.

Many people have asked me why I have put my life in harm's way by tangling with Islam and why I do what I do. Born in a Muslim family and having witnessed first-hand the horrors and indignity that Islamofascism visits on people it subjugates, I have taken it upon myself to do my part in defeating this ideology of oppression, hate and violence. Islam is wrapped in deception as a spiritual dogma or religion and is more dangerous than Nazism, Communism and Fascism.

My writings aim to help people decide if they want to rank with the Islamists or if they want to truly live as free men. The truth shall set you free, it is said, but first it will shatter the cozy, sweet world you live in.

Nowadays we hear from the non-Muslim world about the moderate version of Islam and moderate Muslims. In my view, being a Muslim and not being radical is simply not possible. Freedom lets a person make choices and be up-front about it. And that's where I part with those who would prefer to be sheep and have sheepdogs hem them in.

Many non-Muslims are obviously very well-meaning with regard to Islam, but they are also extremely naïve and ignorant of the facts. They seem to think that Islam is just another religion of love and peace and Muslims should be given full freedom to practice their religion. Do they also believe that thieves, misogynists, rapists, child-molesters and any and all manner of practicing evils should be given complete carte blanche to carry on with what they value and believe? These well-meaning poeple are just as deluded as the fanatic jihadists by refusing to acknowledge the fact that one cannot be a Muslim and not abide by the dictates of the Quran.

There is no such thing as moderate Islam. There is no such thing as secular Islam or a secular Muslim. It's the nature of the faith to deny any separation of religion and the state or religion and society. There are numerous sects within Islam. One and all are extremes and not in the least amenable to change. Keep in mind that Islam claims that it is the perfect eternal faith for mankind. Splits have occurred and will continue to occur in Islam. Yet, reformation has not happened in nearly 1400 years and is not going to happen. Islam is carved in granite, just the way it is. No change. Allah's book is sealed.

There are indeed some Muslims who are moderate in the way they practice their religion. These people, for the most part, are culturally Muslims. They don't practice Islam the way it is mandated. They pick and choose. Therefore, "moderate Islam," is no Islam at all. It is not possible.

The Islamists have created fear not only in a non-Islamic world, but in the hearts and minds of those who consider themselves to be Muslims. The Islamists wage their war under the name of Islam. They receive immense direct and indirect support from the rank-and-file of ordinary Muslims. It is this passive support of so-called moderate Muslims that keeps the Islamists alive. And it is the Islamists who are intent on showing no mercy to any and all who do not share their ideology, be they Muslims or not. Millions of Iranians who were born into a faith they did not choose, a faith that was inflicted upon them by invaders of a foreign culture, a faith that forbids them to leave or revert to their pre-Islamic heritage and other Iraian religions, they remain Muslims in name only.

However, someone like the fanatic Ahmadinejad is a true Muslim who was instilled from his upbringing with Islamic superstitions, prejudices and hatreds. He was indoctrinated, from the moment of his birth, by an extensive ruthless in-power cadre of self-serving mullahs and imams who intended to maintain their stranglehold on the rank and file of the faithful-their very source of support and livelihood.

The fanatic Ahmadinejad is every bit as bloodthirsty as Hitler. Every jihadist is. But, he is not a Hitler. Not yet. He is far from having control of the Iranian State, including its armed forces. Even his popularity among the very poor is sinking for not being able to deliver what he had promised. Hence, the thing to do is to increase greatly any and all non-violent pressures on the present Islamic regime in Iran. Despite the current tug-of-war in Washington, we hope to believe people in U.S. government have studied all the possible effective actions and now it is time to put them into full effect without any delay. It is also time for the rabid self-serving Bush-bashers to start fighting the real enemy.

The majority of Iranians are against the mullahs' rule and many are staunchly pro-West and pro-America. However, a minority supports the mullahs for a variety of reasons, such as jobs, influence and simply for money. And a much smaller minority composed of the people we call the 3Fs -- fools, fanatics and frauds, do support the Mullahs. Further, the mullahs have severely dis-empowered the opposition by systematic harassing, jailing and killing.

The mullahs' days are, however, numbered and we will witness the rule of the true Iranians, the majority of whom are worthy human beings. No totalitarian rule can survive without a segment of the population, for one reason or another, supporting it. Yet, time is not on the side of the mullahs. By their mismanagement, thievery and oppression of the masses, they have created explosive internal conditions. Any significant support of the presently splintered Iranian opposition will be the tipping point-a tipping point that would assuredly topple the mullahs.

In conclusion, our best hope for humanity and civilization to survive is to firmly resist Islamofascism in all its forms. As an Iranian-American, I have experienced first-hand the Islamic tyranny as well as the blessings of liberty. I find it my solemn duty to do all I can to battle Islamofascism, the most dehumanizing active threat of our time.

Corporate America Screws American Workers

Lou Dobbs weighs in

And Glenn Beck

With the schools dumbing-down American children, and businesses out-sourcing and bringing in foreign workers through the H-1B visa program, it won't take long for American citizens to end up on the bottom of the pecking order. 4 out of 5 workers brought in under the H-1B visa program are level 1, not level 4 skilled workers.

Enacted in 1990, the United States H-1B visa program allows US businesses to employ foreign workers in specialized, highly skilled occupations, and is especially intended to bring skilled professionals such as researchers, scientists, engineers, and software developers to the U.S. The H-1B program is designed specifically to bring foreign-born workers to the United States who have skills that are in shortage with U.S. business interests. It is being used to defraud American workers.

If there are 300,000 people in US Universities graduating with advanced degrees in math and sciences every year to an expected 120,000 available jobs, why is Bill Gates moaning about the H-1B visa cap? In fact, Bill Gates is advocating the elimination of the cap entirely. Not the visa program, just the upper limit of how many foreign workers can be summoned by American companies to do the work that Americans are, or should be trained for? What about the other 180,000 graduates each year? What do they do with their degrees?

Out-sourcing of jobs is un-American, and is speeding up the demise of America. Tsk, tsk. Why not give empire-building a rest, Bill? Pop over to Africa, and feed some starving children, or something? Better yet, why not use your money to actually help feed children in America? You have to forgive my naiveté. Being a loyal, patriotic American, I just can't seem to get with the global mind-set of your generation. Oh, don't get me wrong, I know how much you've done for America, and the world. But why pull it down around your ears, now that you're king of the mountain, Bill? Is there no limit to corporate America's greed?

Let's look at some of the results of the H-1B visa programs thus far.

Research finds US H1B visa holders paid less :

How much less?

A recent report suggests that US employers are using the H-1B visa program to pay lower wages than the national average for programming jobs.

According to "The Bottom of the Pay Scale: Wages for H-1B Computer Programmers — F.Y. 2004," a report by Programmers Guild board member John Miano, non-U.S. citizens working in the United States on an H-1B visa are paid "significantly less than their American counterparts."

How much less? "On average, applications for H-1B workers in computer occupations were for wages $13,000 less than Americans in the same occupation and state."
