US NAVAL ACADEMY INSTRUCTOR TEACHING ON BEHALF OF US MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD


From Atlas Shrugs:
This is devastating. Stealth coup. The IIIT is an Islamic institution with ties to the extremist Saudi-Wahhabi movement. It wasco-founded by Anwar Ibrahim, who strives to present himself to the West as a moderate, but who in fact is an Islamic supremacist who promotes global Islamic rule based on Sharia law.
IIIT was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document -- titled "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America" -- as one of the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded "organizations of our friends" that shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These "friends" wereidentified by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions." (source: DTN)
US Naval Academy Instructor Teaching On Behalf Of US Muslim Brotherhood

By Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch

According to promotional material, a United States Naval Academy professor is teaching on behalf of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a part of the US Muslim Brotherhood and where global Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi reportedly serves as a trustee. IIIT recently announced its Summer Students Program for 2013 to be held from May 26 – July 3. According to the IIIT announcement, one of the instructors for the program will be Professor Ermin Sinanovic, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland who will be teaching the following course titled “Muslim World Affairs”:
This course is meant to provide students who had little or no background on the Muslim world with a basic understanding of its contemporary history, its geopolitics, its diverse cultures, languages and ethnic groups. Also, the course introduces the key issues and developments that framed the relationship between the world of Islam and the West, such as the colonial encounter, the capitalist expansion of the West, the emergence of the nation-state and its institutions, the discovery of oil in the Middle East and its implications, the communication revolution and contemporary globalization and their impact on cultures, values and life styles; and finally the US foreign policy towards the Muslim world and its implications. This course will be covered in twelve hours. Instructor: Professor Ermin Sinanovic, US Naval Academy, Maryland.

From PR Online:

One of the other instructors at the IIIT summer program will be US Muslim Brotherhood leader Louay Safi, identified in the announcement as affiliated with the College of Islamic Studies of the Qatar Foundation. In 2009 Louay Safi, also an official at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), was at the center of a controversy when it was learned that the US Defense Department brought him to Fort Hood as an instructor and that he had been lecturing on Islam to troops in Fort Hood who were about to deploy to Afghanistan.

Dr. Safi has also been recently identified as a leading member of the Syrian National Council, a Syrian opposition group dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood.

OBAMA IRS SCANDAL WIDENS – Conservative Activists and Businesses Targeted Too


** Nearly 500 conservative groups targeted
** At least 5 pro-Israel groups targeted
** Constitutional groups targeted
** Groups that criticized Obama administration were targeted
** At least two pro-life groups targeted
** A Texas voting-rights group was targeted
** Conservative activists and businesses were targeted
lerner shulman
It is now clear that the Obama IRS was targeting a much broader array of conservative groups than just Tea Party organizations.
McClatchyDC reported:
A group of anti-abortion activists in Iowa had to promise the Internal Revenue Service it wouldn’t picket in front of Planned Parenthood.
Catherine Engelbrecht’s family and business in Texas were audited by the government after her voting-rights group sought tax-exempt status from the IRS.
Retired military veteran Mark Drabik of Nebraska became active in and donated to conservative causes, then found the IRS challenging his church donations.
While the developing scandal over the targeting of conservatives by the tax agency has largely focused to date on its scrutiny of groups with words such as “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, these examples suggest the government was looking at a broader array of conservative groups and perhaps individuals. Their collective experiences at a minimum could spread skepticism about the fairness of a powerful agency that should be above reproach and at worst could point to a secret political vendetta within the government against conservatives.

Obama's DOJ and Islamophilia: "Social Media Posts" (that means Blogs, Facebook, etc.) Telling the Truth About Islam May Violate Civil Rights

BUMPED TO THE TOP FOR NOW - SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS

This is not a surprise, but it is a clear and present danger to our freedom (dated May 30, 2013):
DOJ: Social Media Posts Trashing Muslims May Violate Civil Rights

In its latest effort to protect followers of Islam in the U.S. the Obama Justice Department warns against using social media to spread information considered inflammatory against Muslims, threatening that it could constitute a violation of civil rights....

[...]

The area’s top federal prosecutor, Bill Killian, will address a topic that most Americans are likely unfamiliar with, even those well versed on the Constitution; that federal civil rights laws can actually be violated by those who post inflammatory documents aimed at Muslims on social media. “This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian says in the local news story. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

The DOJ political appointee adds in the article that the upcoming presentation will also focus on Muslim culture with a special emphasis on the fact that the religion is no different from others, even though some in the faith have committed terrorist acts, Christians have done the same....
Go read the rest HERE. Now.

So, what are we to do about this, an issue of supreme importance. What the DOJ is trying to do strikes at the heart of Freedom of Speech!

Ace of Spades asks, "Has Obama Repealed the Clear and Present Danger Doctrine"?

How I Became Islamophobic

The following was written by a British college student. The original article is posted here.

My University in London used to be a Polytechnic. Before that, it was a parking lot. By gradients then, the same space has become progressively less functional over the ages, and it now blights the cultural life of an otherwise charming town.

In appearance, the main building resembles a very old-fashioned, inner-city high-school. The campus is tiny relative to normal universities. There is no green space nearby and we are surrounded on all sides by busy roads. The website calls it ‘cosy, modern and artful’. In reality it is compact, ugly and depressing.

I didn’t need to attend this place. I received very good A-level results. Warwick University was among the first institutions to offer me a place. I turned them and others down because I wanted to attend somewhere further away from the small, boring town in which my parents live. More specifically, I was determined to live and study in London.

What I had in mind was the London I saw on television; a stuffy, slightly upmarket New York in effect, with intelligent men and aspirant women supping cocktails and espresso, you know the kind of place. What I have become used to since I arrived here is a city of burkas, terrorism, homophobia, black-tar heroin, and prostitution; a magnificent metropolis half-destroyed by a single cultural minority.

You may think, dear general reader, that the panic and hysteria over Islam is unwarranted or driven by third-party interests (oil politics, Jewish Nationalism, Racism etc…). The ‘me’ just a day or two into freshers week would completely agree with you. The ‘me’ now wants you to listen carefully and without prejudice as to why this is not the case.

I realise now that the present epoch is a contest between two starkly different futures: One in which the West is Islamised and the other in which the West is restored. The first is a nightmare of which some of us already have a taste, and which we are fully prepared to fight to prevent.

I’ll give you three examples of the trend from personal experience…

During my first year of study, I was resident in a student halls with many other people, most of them Muslim, most of them British-born. Throughout this year I witnessed (and on occasion, suffered) cultural bullying of a type I never imagined existed. This was the bullying routinely talked about on racist websites, and which I had always assumed to be Islamophobic fiction.

Here’s a question for you: In what situation do you think it is appropriate to label a women you don’t know a ‘slag’? I’m sure, assuming you are a decent and rational person, that you would only imagine yourself using such language during a fit of rage over something like a terrible betrayal, or after being physically attacked by a female stranger…

Well, the non-Muslim women of my block grew used to hearing this word in retribution for such crimes as wearing shorts on their way to netball practice. They became used to hearing it when they went out in groups to local nightclubs and when they returned home in the early hours of the morning. They hardly blinked when such slurs were screamed out of windows, day-in and day-out, and it went unreported.

Here’s another question for you: In what situation do you think it is justified to spread lies about people you barely know?

Well, lies of the most serious and defamatory kind were routinely spread about non-Muslim students by Muslims that year, via intranet email, graffiti and loud insinuation. The women (the ‘slags’) were alleged to be infected with sexual diseases. The boys were alleged to be homosexual and/or riddled with AIDS. The ‘evidence’ for such slurs were the lifestyles of the Kaffir – their attending of parties, easy laughter and congregating with people of the opposite sex etc…

Here’s a second example…

On St. Valentine’s Day during the second year, the Student Union decided to propose a Valentine’s Day Singles Ball to which men would come wearing badges saying ‘single’ to meet women who would be identified likewise. It sounded quite silly I remember thinking, but if people enjoyed it, who cared?

You don’t need me to tell you who cared about it, and who eventually protested loudly enough for the Ball to be cancelled. It was the ****** University Islamic Society, a sprawling and powerful mafia with tentacles reaching into every aspect of student life. They thought the ball would encourage promiscuity and so they lobbied against it.

Again, nobody said a word.

A third and final example I’ll give of my awakening is the most serious. You might well dismiss what you’ve read so far as ‘anti-social’ behaviour and no worse than that of other social groups, but not this occasion:

I was sitting in class one day, near the back of the room. The lecturer had finished talking and now we were told to discuss amongst ourselves the things we’d heard. A group of Muslim men just across from me were apparently uninterested in the lecture that day as they commenced to discuss videos they’d been emailing each other instead. It took me a short while, but I came to understand that these were decapitation videos. After hearing words and descriptions that I never want to repeat, I nervously looked over at the faces of the men and saw sick, sadistic smiles curling up their bearded faces.

At the end of that year, I was a fully developed ‘Islamophobe’. I can’t and won’t deny what I witnessed and what I saw others go through. And more than this, I won’t help the taboo to survive which allowed for these abuses to go unreported.

If there is one thing my University made clear during Fresher’s Week, it was the ‘multi-faculty policy on discrimination’. In lengthy assemblies, we were told that no ‘discrimination’ of any kind was tolerated longer than it took for those responsible to be expelled.

A climate of fear, no less palpable than that of totalitarian dictatorship was cast over us all.

You’ll notice that I haven’t provided you with the name of my University. This is because I am currently studying there and do not wish to be beaten to a pulp by students. I wouldn’t trust the staff or security to help me in such a situation. This University is Islamic territory now.

The people I hope to reach are those who might have any illusions about the determination of the Muslims to enforce their way of life onto the rest of us. It is not a ‘Zionist fabrication’. It is not a ‘fantasy’ of White Nationalists.  I am a perfectly liberal guy, and have a zero-tolerance policy for racism.

The threat is real.

The Story of the History Of Islam As Told By Muslims On The Ground In The Muslim World


They Have Humiliated The Prophet

The story told, in Muslim communities and schools, is a very simple one but one that is effective in eliciting strong emotion. It goes like this:

"Thanks be to Allah the rule of Islam spread across the world with miraculous speed. The Mo'minin (faithful) took the glorious message of the Holy Qur'an from Mecca and Medina to the darkest corners of the world, bringing light and justice to all the earth.

The rich and the poor of the world, even the Arabs and the non-Arabs, the red skinned and black, stood together, side by side, and worshipped Allah.

There was prosperity, richness and peace beyond imagining, because Allah showered his people with blessings."

And then the mood goes dark and the speaker (or the writer) turns their attention to the infidels.

"The kuffar, the makkar(hypocrites), the people you trust and love, the people that eat in your homes, that eat from the same plate as you do (Arab/Muslim culture of sharing large tray type containers to eat from), who drink water from the same well as you do, the kuffar, though loved and respected by the mo'minin, the kuffar and the makkar, who were given education and enlightenment through the GLORIOUS Qur'an by Allah Subhana-o-Ta'ala, hated Allah and hated the mo'minin and they devised a plan, all together, to destroy the beautiful rule of Allah over the whole earth and kill mo'minin until none was left.

The kuffar TODAY in your own time are still busy, planning together as ONE with Shaytan (Satan), to kill you and your loved ones. Everyday innocent Muslims are killed in the streets of kuffar countries."

And then the message changes to elicit shame:

"Allah asks of YOU. Where are you O Muslim when your brothers are killed by the kuffar mercilessly, their women raped in front of their children (and many a times they go into details of how exactly the imaginary rape happened). The kuffar laugh when they kill, when they rape and when they defile our brethren. And by Allah it would be better for mo'minin to be dead than to see a day of shame like that (culture of shame and honor is really strong in Islamic societies).

Allah asks O mo'minin, IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR PARENTS? IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT FOR YOUR CHILDREN? For the armies of kuffar are at our gates. They are ready to enter YOUR house and do the same to you and your loved ones that they do to those mo'minin who live in their countries."

And then the stories of Badr and Uhud are told:

"Allah promised Muhammad Sal-Allah-o-Aleyhe-Wa-Aleh-i-Wasalam on the day of Badr that even though his numbers were few he should not fear because ANGELS were going to fight for the mo'minin. And by Allah, we won against the mighty army of Qureish. Today Shaytan has the armies of the WHOLE earth ready to kill each and every mo'min but Allah will make us victorious. WE WILL ONCE AGAIN RULE THE WORLD!"

The crowd usually erupts in a loud "Ameen!", "Masha-Allah" and "Allah-u-Akbar". Students in classrooms usually agree to the message in a more quiet manner.

Usually on Fridays this is where the message would end, but in a lifelong education platform (every day in the mosques, homes and schools) the message ends not with that message of being victorious, however, it ends with a warning:

"But keep in mind brethren, we ruled the world but then we wanted to be like the kuffar so Allah took away his angels and the kuffar destroyed us. Remember the story of Uhud my brothers and take heed, because even when mo'minin fighting alongside Muhammaed Sal-Allah-o-Aleyhe-Wa-Aleh-i-Wasalam doubted Allah and his prophet and valued their lives and booty more than Allah and his prophet, Allah punished them by giving victory to the kuffar. And by Allah they were destined for hell.

Hold Allah and his prophet dear and forget about life in this world for life in paradise is so much better, so much sweeter than here. This earth is temporary. But what you do in this earth will decide on the day of judgment whether you go to paradise or hell. And as our prophet said there is no guarantee that you would go to paradise but if you fight for the cause of Islam and for the cause of Allah.


Let us all follow the example of Muhammad Sal-Allah-o-Aleyhe-Wa-Aleh-i-Wasalam and forget the devices of shaytan in this world for if we do so we will be victorious both in this world and the judgment day."


This last part is what solidifies it in one's brain that in the end all that matters is doing the bidding of Allah. Because if you disobey him, not only are you going to pay dearly (by getting murdered, raped or tortured somehow) in this world but also in the hereafter.


Now if you were Muslim, wouldn't this story resonate with you? It did with me, for a very long time.


And not everyone who then goes on and blows someone up or kills an innocent person does it out of a "pure heart for Allah". Many are already criminally disposed but this gives them the justification they need. And in the end, what does it matter anyway? They are told to follow Mohammed, and Mohammed himself was a criminal, a bandit.


Many a times Muslims who carry out attacks against innocent people do hold on to just one or two verses from the Quran and a couple of stories from the Hadiths but that is not a sporadic thing. It is a long process of education.

WaPo After Their Off-The-Record Meeting With Holder: The Justice Department Has Allowed Us To Say "Holder Will Protect Journalist Rights"


... and I won't come in your mouth

As The Washington Examiner‘s own Susan Ferrechio reports Fridaymost news organizations boycotted on principle Attorney General Eric Holder’s offer to join a press conference Thursday  in which he discussed the Obama’s White House various efforts to monitor, intimidate and harass journalists. Holder’s condition was that the meeting be “off the record,” meaning none of the reporters would be allowed to report what was said at the meeting. 
Among those who did attend was the Washington Post. Today’s Post has an account of the meeting — sort of. That is, they have a story about what the Justice Department allowed them to say about its efforts to protect press freedom. The result is just beyond parody (All emphasis is added): 
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. pledged Thursday to take concrete steps to address concerns that the Justice Department has overreached in its leak investigations and said officials would seek procedural and possibly legislative changes to protect journalists’ First Amendment rights. 
Holder’s commitment came at a private meeting with news executives after criticism that the Justice Department had infringed on the news media in several high-profile leak investigations. Participants said he told them officials would revise guidelines for issuing subpoenas to obtain reporters’ phone records. 
The 90-minute meeting was attended by a small group of journalists after several news organizations objected to the Justice Department’s insistence that it be held off the record. The participants, however, reached an agreement with the Justice Department under which they could describe what occurred during the meeting in general terms. The Justice Department is expected to meet with other news organizations and media lawyers in coming days.

Obama Administration Decides Budget Cuts Require Rationing Meals To Soldiers Serving in Afghanistan



From NBC News:
Marines at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan will lose a key daily meal starting Saturday, causing some to forgo a hot breakfast and others to work six-plus hours without refueling on cooked food, according to Marines at the base and Marine Corps officials.
The midnight ration service — known there as “midrats” — supplies breakfast to Marines on midnight-to-noon shifts and dinner to Marines who are ending noon-to-midnight work periods. It’s described as one of the few times the Marines at Leatherneck can be together in one place.
The base, which is located in Afghanistan’s southwestern Helmand Province, flanked by Iran and Pakistan, also will remove its 24-hour sandwich bar. It plans to replace the dishes long offered at midnight with pre-packaged MREs, said Marine Corps Lt. Col. Cliff Gilmore, who has been deployed in Afghanistan since February.
The moves, though unpopular with many Marines on the ground and their families back home, are emblematic of the massive drawdown of American troops in Afghanistan and the dismantling of U.S. military facilities. More than 30,000 U.S. service members will leave Afghanistan in coming months as the U.S. prepares to hand responsibility for security to Afghan forces in 2014.
While no Marine at Camp Leatherneck agreed to speak on the record, many are privately angry about the hit on base morale.
“This boils my skin. One of my entire shifts will go 6.5 hours without a meal. If we need to cut back on money I could come up with 100 other places,” one Leatherneck-based Marine wrote in an email this week to his wife and shared with NBC News. (The Marine declined to speak on the record.) “Instead, we will target the biggest contributor to morale. I must be losing my mind. What is our senior leadership thinking? I just got back from flying my ass off and in a few days, I will not have a meal to replenish me after being away for over 9 hours.”

The Obama Economy Has Hit Poor, Uneducated Blacks and Hispanic Harder Than Any Other Group


Hope and Change Watch.

From the Washington Post:
The study is part of a growing body of research on the role of household wealth — or lack thereof — in amplifying the impact of the recession and slowing the rate of recovery. Traditionally, economists and policymakers have focused on the effects of employment and income.  
But the report from the St. Louis Fed argued that swings in household balance sheets — which include home values, stock prices, savings and debt — were critical in determining which families weathered the financial storm and which got swept away.  
The report found that the most fragile households were not well educated, relatively young or black or Hispanic, or some combination of those characteristics. Those families tended to have low savings combined with high debt and accrued much of their wealth through housing.

“it is not Islam that makes young converts violent; it is the violence within them that causes them to convert to Islam”

Theodore Dalrymple is a contributing editor of City Journal and the Dietrich Weismann Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. He is the author of Life at the Bottom and Our Culture, What’s Left of It, the Mandarins and the Masses.
From HERE

Of course if the compulsively violent find in Islam the amoral justification needed to fulfill their inner desires, the perpetuating grievance mechanisms, and the entitlement for their actions, there are several questions to be asked. Nor is this phenomenon limited to converts. Out of the greater than a billion existing Muslims, how many are simply violent thugs finding the excuses they need within a ‘perfect, revealed document, uncreated by a perfect being’ (who hates jews)?
Some of these questions would be truly islamophobic, but most of them, honestly asked, deserve some answers.
‘Where is the overwhelming effort to destroy this within Islam?’, I would imagine, is the first one.
Instead, this force within the religion is, in fact the ascendant, and controlling one.
Why?

The Woolwich Beheading and the End of Islamophobia


As you know, recently two Muslim men beheaded a British soldier, in the name of “Almighty Allah,” in London.   In the name of the slain soldier, Lee Rigby, we must insist that all political correctness stop now.  Every person who uses the tired, dangerous phrase, “Islamophobia,” is complicit in the killing of Lee Rigby and must be confronted as such.
A phobia is an irrational fear.  But, Islam is a violent ideology that celebrates Jihad.  One of the killers’ Muslim names means, ‘Holy Warrior.’  To fear adherents to a violent ideology, of holy war, is not irrational; it is the very essence of the most rational of instincts, that of survival.  And those who would demonize our survival instinct are complicit in the murder of all victims of Jihad.
If someone uses the term, ‘Islamophobia,’ in your presence, yell at them, “Was Lee Rigby ‘Islamophobic’ as his Muslim killers approached him with a large knife after hitting him with a car?”  Scream out of anger!  “It is not irrational to fear people who are trying to kill you!”  Scream out of self-preservation!  Because this term ‘Islamophobia’ may literally kill you as it threatens your civilization.
Every time you go to an airport, you must go through heavy searching no matter what your demographic.  This massive inconvenience happens because we do not wish to appear Islamophobic.  Thus we risk our lives rather than deal with the fact that diversity exists and includes hostile, large, predatory, violent ideologies.  So to save your life, scream at those who use the term, ‘Islamophobic,’ “Were the people in the 9/11 planes Islamophobic during the hijacking?”
While you are at it, please scream violently at anyone who calls you ‘racist,’ when you mention Islamic violence and Jihad.  It is not funny.  The Muslims who inflicted holy war on the Boston Marathon were white.  Noting cultural diversity is rational, not racist.   Culturist profiling of Muslims at airports is neither racist nor, can it be argued after the beheading of Lee Rigby, Islamophobic.
The killing of cartoonists and filmmakers illustrates the danger Islam poses to our values.  Weekly worldwide Jihad proves Muslims’ willingness to kill for their ideology.  Think of the real danger posed by Islam; think of the victims around the world; imagine someone calling Lee Rigby’s widow and child ‘Islamophobic,’ if they – in their horrible grief – criticize Islam; – and scream at them as if your life depended on it.  In fact, it does.

White House: Federal Contractor Executive Pay Higher Than Obama’s Salary Is “Excessive”


Obama Contemplates The Little People

From the Weekly Standard:

On Thursday, the White House’s administrator for federal procurement policy, Joe Jordan, wrote on the White House blog about a legislative initiative that President Obama is sending to Congress next week “to stop excessive payments to Federal contractors.”  Jordan continues: 
“The proposal builds on previous Administration proposals and language included in the President’s Budget, and marks another important step in our ongoing effort to buy smarter and end wasteful, fiscally imprudent contract spending. 
Under current law, contractors that are paid based on their incurred costs (which represents about one-third of current contract spending) may demand reimbursement for executive salaries, bonuses and other compensation up to the level of the Nation’s top private sector CEOs and other senior executives. This taxpayer reimbursement level has skyrocketed by more than 300 percent since the law was enacted in the mid-1990s.” 
The president believes excessive compensation for executives is unnecessarily driving up costs for the government.  What is excessive?  Apparently, anything more than the president himself makes [emphasis added]: 
“The Administration’s proposal calls on Congress to abolish the current formula and instead tie the reimbursement cap to the President’s salary and apply it across-the-board to all defense and civilian cost-reimbursement contracts. Tying the cap to the President’s salary provides a reasonable level of compensation for high value Federal contractors while ensuring taxpayers are not saddled with paying excessive compensation costs. “

UK: Police Force Shopkeeper To Remove Shirts Saying, "Obey Our Law" Because They Supposedly Incite Racial Hatred

ARREST THREAT: Matthew Taylor and the T-shirt police have forced him to remove from display
A NEWPORT shopkeeper has been forced by police to remove a T-shirt from his shop window because they felt it “could be seen to be inciting racial hatred.”
Matthew Taylor, 35, the owner of Taylor’s clothes store on Emlyn Walk in the city, printed up and displayed the T-shirt with the slogan: “Obey our laws, respect our beliefs or get out of our country” after Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, was killed in near Woolwich barracks in London last week.
But following a complaint from a member of the public, police came to his store and threatened to arrest him unless he removed the Tshirt from sight.

Did Eric Holder Also Lie... to a Judge?


I don't know what the fuck I'm saying anymore
It's very simple: In his warrant application, Holder claimed to be interested in investigating James Rosen as a coconspirator in an espionage case. In addition, he claimed Rosen was a "flight risk," which would justify even closer monitoring. 
Now he says he never had any intention of prosecuting Rosen. In other words: He now says helied when he told the judge these things, in order to secure his license to snoop on Rosen. 
Well, which is it? If he never had any intention of prosecuting Rosen, the warrant application is a fraud on the court. 
If he did have such an intention... that raises some additional questions.
