DC Watson takes aim and scores a direct hit yet again:
CAIR's "Islamophobia and Anti-Americanism" Conference Friday, May 13 to Sunday, May 15, 2005 Sheraton Premiere at Tysons Corner, 8661 Leesburg Pike Vienna, VA Schedule: http://www.cair-net.org/2005conference/program.asp
Among those scheduled to appear at this "event" are CAIR Chairman Omar Ahmad and Executive Director Nihad Awad. Many would argue that some of the comments made by these two pillars of the community are part of the reason why the American public has such a negative perception of Islam. Is it now, or has it ever been appropriate for Islamic immigrants in the United States to make the cocky, outlandish statements that these two have made in public, and then turn around and play the namby-pamby victims of bigotry when Americans confront them on it?
The term "Islamophobia" has no basis. Supposedly it refers to a “fear of Islam.” Actually, it's a phony, made up word that conveys no factual truth. It is as imaginary as the jabberwock and the unicorn.
People in this country don't fear Islam; those who concocted the fake description "Islamophobia" should stop flattering themselves, thinking that they've instilled fear into the American people.
American sentiment doesn’t involve fear. Muslim militants and their apologists are more comparable to gnats in a Port-a-John. Simply put, Americans lead very busy lives, and we'd rather spend time with our families and friends, enjoying life in our country without having to keep an eye on Islamic militants who are scattered around the U.S. plotting the murder of innocent people.
However, since the so-called moderate Muslims have done little or nothing to eject militant Islamists from their own community, it's been left up to us to clean up this mess, making sure that some of these problem children don't take innocent American lives while they send themselves to hell.
Whether groups like CAIR will admit it or not, there are Muslim fanatics among us who are either brainwashed enough, or just plain dumb enough to believe that if they murder all of us "infidels", they'll go to some sort of paradise and receive a reward of virgins to have sex with.
And they call us the ignorant ones.
Immigration to the United States has given millions the opportunity to better their lives by living in the most developed nation on earth. Immigration should not be a pass to come here and attempt to tear down everything this country was founded upon. Americans have gotten along quite well for two hundred and twenty nine years without any Islamic political influence. So instead of whining to the Dhimmis at U.S. State Department about “Islamophobia” in the United States, perhaps CAIR should explain to us how they've come to the conclusion that Americans are practicing bigotry against Muslims. Here is some evidence that there is no such bigotry: the average annual income per Muslim household in America is nearly $70,000, which is well above the national average. What is it in the Middle East, $700? If the American people wish to express their unhappiness with the fact that our government has made the decision to allow massive immigration to the United States from the Middle East and parts of Africa, without sufficiently identifying and weeding out the substantial criminal element inside the Islamic community, they have the right to do so.
For groups like CAIR, especially after September 11, to name-call and label Americans as racists and bigots because they are simply exercising their right to free speech in criticizing Islam and Muslims is nothing short of asinine.
Americans constantly hear that we “just don’t understand Islam”. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but there’s no need for us to understand Islam. It’s not our responsibility to understand any culture but our own. It’s very simple: obey American laws, respect the dress codes, uniforms, rules and regulations of the companies that employ you or the schools in which you’re enrolled, and respect the wishes of your American hosts. Then you won't have a problem.
Perhaps it’s Muslims who don't understand us. They moved here for a reason. If they’re going to continue to be a high maintenance liability, expecting special treatment because they’re Muslim, they still have much to learn about living here. This is America. Equal treatment for everyone and special treatment for no one -- and this includes them.
Americans are kind-hearted and generous, but we owe Islam nothing. If Muslims want special treatment for simply being Muslims, then they should migrate back to an Islamic nation. Otherwise, they should realize that they’ll never have it better anywhere else in the world, stop squawking and complaining like overrated divas, and be grateful to the United States for the opportunities they’ve had bestowed upon them.
Are Islamic organizations operating inside our borders honestly trying to tell us that Muslims aren’t committing the overwhelming majority of terrorist acts around the world? The following is a list of Muslim militants and convicted criminals. This is a list that certain Islamic groups had hoped Americans would never gain access to. Here are examples of what the Muslim community in America has produced and injected into the heart of our nation. Is it possible that any of these names will be mentioned at the "Islamophobia” Conference"? Or is this list of Muslim criminals just a mirage?

So this coming weekend, Islamists are huddling up to decide what to call on their next play. Sometime during this conference, several of them may ask the question: what is the cause of “Islamophobia” in America? Their question will be answered the very second they catch their reflection in the mirror.
