Retired engineer and veteran, Neil Jednoralski from Saline, Kansas, contends that all mosques in Kansas should be watched and explained why he posted a Facebook threat to “strike” a local mosque — clarifying what he meant by admitting he’d show up and cheer if someone burned it down.
Wichita Eagle A Saline, Kansas 69-year-old retired engineer who attempted to have Barack Hussein Obama in 2011 for illegally holding office as a foreign citizen has been keeping an eye on mosques throughout the state, and recently wrote on Facebook, “We need to keep an eye on muslim owned buildings. and ready to strike.”

When he used the word “strike,” he said, he meant to remove any ammunition or explosives that could be stored at mosques for terrorist attacks. His views provide insight into the beliefs of some of the Kansas groups actively opposed to Muslims.
Speaking with the Eagle after his comments drew the attention within the domestic terrorism community, he claimed he only meant to go after mosques storing ammunition or explosives that could be used in a terrorist attack.
It was among the anti-Muslim comments posted on Facebook by Kansas militia groups after talk of an armed protest against a Wichita mosque. “We need to keep an eye on muslim owned buildings. and ready to strike,” the April 2 Facebook post said. It was from a group identifying itself as Saline County Kansas Security Force-Defense Force.
The comment struck Daryl Johnson, a former senior analyst with the Department of Homeland Security, as a domestic terrorist threat that should be investigated by authorities at a time when anti-government militias are increasingly targeting Muslims in America.
Asked why he has singled out Muslims, Jednoralski stated that their religion is illegal in the U.S. “I think they’re a dangerous cult. They’re not a religion,” he explained. “I think the Muslim religion is against the law in the U.S. I took an oath when I served in the military to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic and I feel that oath is forever.”
Which mosques was he referring to when he said “ready to strike”? “I think I meant for all mosques in Kansas,” answered Jednoralski. In a September Facebook post, he listed the addresses of about 20 mosques or Muslim facilities in the state.
Pressed about a series of fires set at mosques around the U.S. and abroad, he said he wouldn’t be opposed to setting them on fire before adding, “I would have been like the people in Europe that cheered.”
As far as how he keeps tabs on the twenty Muslim facilities in Kansas, Jednoralski said he and other local anti-Muslim activists keep an eye on them, looking for suspicious activities and reporting back to the local authorities.
“I don’t think we can rely on our present government to keep an eye on them,” he explained, adding that by “present government,” he means the Obama administration.
Austin-based churches and synagogues call for an end to justified anti-Muslim backlash. They claim to be “deeply disburbed by the rise of Islamophobia.”(They are deeply disturbed all right)
My Statesman Commuters might have noticed something very different on a Sunday morning ride down the Drag — about a half-dozen red and white signs raised by University of Texas-area churches, proclaiming, “We stand with our Muslim neighbors.”
Penned “The Banner Project,” the campaign aims to diminish anti-Muslim attitudes in America, a national effort born right here in Austin, sponsored by the nonprofit Interfaith Action for Human Rights.
“These banners are something simple, concrete and visible, and we hope they will lead to many, many acts of mutual understanding and compassionate work among people of different religious faiths,” the Rev. John Elford said at the late April launch party for area churches when his congregation, University United Methodist Church, unveiled its banner.
The first banner went up at the Congregational Church of Austin, just off the Drag, when parishioners marched to the Nueces Mosque down the street for an open house, where they shared a meal next to rooms where Muslims wash and pray.
The most important thing was to be sure the Muslim community actually supported the project, said the Rev. Tom VandeStadt, pastor at Congregational. “We didn’t want to be presumptuous,” he said. With that blessing, 14 other churches and synagogues have since raised signs. (Gee, that’s funny, Muslims have no problem with being presumptuous)

Spearhead Bonnie Tamres-Moore said it couldn’t come at a better time, since anti-Muslim attitudes are on the rise. A February Pew Research poll found that more than 75 percent of Americans think discrimination against Muslims is increasing, something she attributes to a presidential campaign peppered with anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Below signs were seen at anti-Islam protests in Texas:
“It is very clear to me that being a bystander to hatred and intolerance makes it possible for hatred and intolerance to grow,” she said.

University-area churches are now working together to do more than just put out a public statement. University United Methodist will offer classes on Islam this fall. Three other area churches will join a local Muslim organization June 8, during the holy month of Ramadan, to break the fast by eating together (barbarically-slaughtered halal food only, of course).
Elford and VandeStadt predicted the signs will stay up through the election cycle and while classes are in session, to ensure that Muslim students feel welcome and supported. Elford said the campaign comes down to “love thy neighbor.”
“Growing up, I kind of thought that was pretty much a noncontroversial statement and that anybody would accept that,” he said. “But you find that in the midst of all that we’re seeing around us, that we need to be reminded to love our neighbors.”
These are the Christian and Jewish submitters to Islam in Austin. CAUTION: This is so nauseating, I doubt you’ll be able to watch it to the end.
