DC Watson’s letter to his Congressman:
April 29th, 2005
To: Ms. Angela Klemack
Office of the Honorable Patrick J. Tiberi
United States Congressman, 12th Congressional District (Ohio)
Dear Ms. Klemack,
Per our 4/25/05 telephone conversation, attached is the information you requested regarding the issues we discussed.
Islam & Militant Islam. I’m completely aware that there are many decent Muslims in this country. Many of them, the peaceful, refined, intelligent ones, have been shuffled out of the mosques by militant Muslims because they don’t buy into the worn out, 7th century version of Islamic fundamentalism. Like it or not, much of the evidence involving the militant Islamic mindset points directly to our “Saudi friends”, as will be demonstrated further into this letter.
I’m not much of an advocate for the phony “political correctness” facade, so please forgive my bluntness. If our government believes that Americans think of Islam as being completely benign, especially with so many Islamic militants running loose, the comments attached to some of these articles should shed some light on the opinions of millions of hard working Americans, as should this Cornell University poll.
Perhaps Islamic Imams in America like this one are a good reason for this: Muzammil Siddiqi.
While I respect our government, it appears to be completely out of touch with the American people with regard to the negative impact that militant Islam and illegal immigration have on the United States. Here are some of the examples I provided during our telephone conversation.
Islamic indoctrination taking place in American schools:
With the exception of the less fortunate among us, shouldn’t this nation once again run on the idea of equal treatment for everyone, and special treatment for no one?
From President Bush’s inaugural speech: “In America’s ideal of freedom, the public interest depends on private character – on integrity, and tolerance toward others, and the rule of conscience in our own lives. Self-government relies, in the end, on the governing of the self. That edifice of character is built in families, supported by communities with standards, and sustained in our national life by the truths of Sinai, the Sermon on the Mount, the words of the Koran, and the varied faiths of our people. Americans move forward in every generation by reaffirming all that is good and true that came before – ideals of justice and conduct that are the same yesterday, today, and forever”.
Was the President referring to…these words?
Qur’an 9:5: “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful”.
Qur’an 9:29: “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection”.
Qur’an 48:29: “Muhammad is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.”
Qur’an 8:12: “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”
Qur’an 5:51: “O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people”.
Qur’an 4:34: “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them”.
Religious freedom in America is a wonderful part of our culture. However, should it not then be made clear to everyone that this is contingent on the practices of the religion being acceptable and adhering to the laws of the U.S. Constitution?
Freedom of speech, our first Amendment: College Republicans attacked at San Francisco State University, perpetrated by Arab Students.
Loyalty to the American Constitution: Here are some quotes from the leaders of the Council on American Islamic Relations, headquartered not far from your office.
1994: CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, at a Barry University forum: “I am in support of the Hamas movement.”
1998: CAIR Board Chairman Omar Ahmad, at a Flamingo Palace Banquet Hall event in California: “Muslim institutions, schools and economic power should be strengthened in America”. “Those who stay in America should be “open to society without melting (into it).”
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran . . . should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”
Reference column: “American Muslim Leader Urges Faithful to Spread Word” by Lisa Gardiner San Ramon Valley Herald July 4, 1998
1993: CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper, Minneapolis Star Tribune: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.” “But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”
Omar M. Ahmad: Suicide bombers “kill themselves for Islam” and so are not terrorists”.
Nihad Awad wrote in the Muslim World Monitor that the World Trade Center trial, which resulted in the 1994 conviction of four Islamic terrorists, was “a travesty of justice.” Despite the confessions of the terrorists from the 1993 attack.
And our government has this organization training our law enforcement officers on Muslim sensitivity? Our State department entertains this organization every time they complain of what they call increased “Islamophobia” in America? Forgive us if we fail to see the logic in this. Law is law, and shouldn’t be diverted by the consistently skewed accusations of profiling by this group.
The article above refers to a few of the CAIR members that haven’t been convicted of terror or fraud crimes, and aren’t in prison or deported.
Here are a few who have been:
Randall “Ismail” Royer: former CAIR Communications Specialist. Timelines listed in Royer’s indictment, specifically September of 2001, and a news article that demonstrates Royer speaking as a representative of CAIR (9/18/2001) are on record as occurring during the same timeframe, and can be matched at the links below.

Ghassan Elashi: Founder of the Texas chapter of CAIR, and Chairman of the Holy Land Foundation. His cousin is Nadia Elashi, (aka) Nadia Marzook, the wife of Mousa Abu Marzook, (aka) Abu Omar, the Deputy Chief of the Hamas terrorist organization’s Political Bureau. http://news.findlaw.com/cnn/docs/infocom/uselashi121702sind.pdf
http://www.4law.co.il/hlf2.htm (p. 6, 7, 8, 9)
Bassem K. Khafagi: 2003, visa and bank fraud. At the time of his arrest, Khafagi was Community Affairs Director with CAIR. Sentence: 10 months (Time served), and deportation back to Egypt.
CAIR has also been named a defendant in a class action lawsuit regarding the 9/11 attacks. How do you think this looks to American taxpayers when the American government interacts with organizations such as these?
Not employed with CAIR, but rotten nonetheless:
The “Lackawanna six”:
Ahmed Omar Abu Ali:
Sadeq Naji Ahmed:
Ali al-Timimi, an Imam no less:
Fawaz Damra, another Imam:
Clayton Morgan, aka Isamu Dyson, aka Cayson Bin Don:
A double dose of stupidity: A Nazi-Islamist Hate fest
Saudi Arabia: Saudi funded Islamic schools operating inside the United States are teaching their students that Christianity and Judaism are false religions, and demanding allegiance to the Qur’an, not the U.S. Constitution, while Saudi provided literature has been located in American mosques that preaches hate for the West, and for America.
Saudi Chief Justice urges fighting U.S.
One could easily assume that all of this is happening somewhere in the Middle East. But it is all happening inside American borders.
You had asked me for recommendations to remedy some of these problems. With careful consideration, this is the top of the list.
If the American government truthfully wants to promote moderate Islam, then organizations such as CAIR and groups like them should be shut down, or their personnel should be replaced with proven Islamic moderates.
American government officials should put a halt to kissing the cheeks and holding the hands of Saudi Princes who, along with everything else they do, arrogantly arrive late for a meeting with the President of the United States. Although some of our elected officials may do personal business with them, we don’t. To us, they are nothing more than oil and terror vendors. If Americans want Saudi influence in their lives, they’ll take a trip to Saudi Arabia.
Acknowledge that Shari’ah law, which is, and always will be incompatible with the U.S. Constitution and other democracy driven bylaws, governs Islam.
Acknowledge that the Saudis, who fund Wahhabism in American mosques and madrasses with petrodollars, need to be forced to cease this activity.
Acknowledge that Saudi-funded madrasses in America are teaching allegiance to the Qur’an and not the American Constitution.
Suspend all foreign financial aid to terror sponsoring states until they’ve cleaned their houses, and can prove it.
Suspend all funding to the United Nations until they’ve cleaned their house, and can prove it.
Stop attempting to cram Islam down the gullet of the American public. This is not a Muslim nation, and never has been. If Muslims wish to practice Islam here peacefully, they should have that right. However, the Islamist groups who pose as Muslim civil rights and charitable organizations should be blacklisted from interacting with American government agencies, and then targeted for closure. They are the barking dogs of militant Islam. They make all of the noise, file all the frivolous lawsuits, and advocate the undermining of this country. American law is for everyone living in America, and this includes Muslims. If they want to live under the Shari’ah, then they should move to a nation where it is practiced.
Government officials should stop making the claim to the American people that there isn’t a problem within Islam, while at the same time they’re spending millions of American taxpayer dollars overseas to change the very face of Islam. If there were no problems, then why would anything need to be changed?
Touch base with the U.S. State Department and advise them to discontinue their attempts to re-write American history to where it includes Muslims.
If mosques in America have nothing to hide, then they — both the Saudi and the Iranian funded ones — should have no trouble with being monitored.
Government officials should remind themselves that American tax dollars pay not only their salaries, but also pay for the daily operations of this country both domestic and foreign. American government officials should also remind themselves who put them into office, and that they represent the American people, not those from the Middle East and Mexico.
Our careless immigration policies have allowed radical Islam to inject itself deeply into our nation’s heart. The earlier referenced list of arrests, indictments and convictions of Muslim terrorists inside America, the majority of them occurring post 9/11, should provide validity to the claim that the problem is here.
So don’t the American people deserve to have their tax dollars used to eject Islamic militancy from inside our borders first, before their money is spent doing it in the Middle East? Rebuilding mosques in Asia isn’t affecting the Islamic threat that’s already here. The protection of the American people comes first. Especially when Americans foot the bill for it.
In closing, if I know about all of this, I have no doubt that our government already knows it too. The question is, will our elected officials do right by the American people and eliminate this element from our society, or will it continue to play the game of political correctness and keep the American people at risk, for the sake of future votes?
I do not expect this information to be swept under any rugs. I love the United States unconditionally, as do tens of millions of others. This information will be saved. I would like a response as to what is going to be done to solve this obvious problem. This column is subject to and approved for publication if deemed fit.
My many thanks and respect to you.

P.S. These links will attest to the fact that the overwhelming majority of Americans are fed up with the U.S./Mexican border situation.
84% of Americans worry about illegal immigration. Of those, thirty-seven percent worry a “great deal” about it.
