D. C. Watson just sent this in, responding to the Magnificent Rosenbaum's head-shaking wonderment at the fact that I "won't stop blogging":
That Robert Spencer just won't stop blogging.
And why the hell should he?
If you want a good laugh at some people who feel that their opinion should be the rule, check out the website of the Council on American Islamic Relations, where they label Jihad Watch a "hate site."
Of course, nobody who runs Jihad Watch said any of the things they quote, and the inflammatory comments have been removed, but CAIR doesn't care about that.
Now it appears that speaking the truth about fanatical Muslims here and abroad -- speaking clearly and honestly about their lying, underhanded, racist, and violent ways -- qualifies in CAIR's view as "hate."
Why don't we talk about hate for a minute?
Does the Council on American Islamic Relations have anything to say about its officers that have been convicted on terror- and fraud-related crimes?
How many of the Jihad Watch staff have been convicted of such offenses?
Has anyone on the Jihad Watch staff ever publicly stated that they were in support of a terrorist organization, as CAIR's Nihad Awad has when he said that he was "in support of the Hamas movement"?
Does Robert Spencer or anyone else on the Jihad Watch staff complain about Muslim sites being monitored for increased radiation levels, despite the fact that Osama bin Laden and his zombies have stated that their goal is to set off a nuclear device in an American city, and that jihadists have used mosques as bases of operations around the world?
Has Robert Spencer, Hugh Fitzgerald, Rebecca Bynum, or any other Jihad Watch staffer ever said that suicide bombers are not terrorists, because they kill themselves for Christianity, as CAIR's Omar Ahmad has said of Islamic suicide bombers killing themselves for Islam?
Has Robert Spencer or any of the Jihad Watch staff ever said that they could not be full citizens of the United States because their values collide with those of America's, as has prominent Muslim spokesman Ihsan Bagby?
Has the Jihad Watch site ever posted a column celebrating the deaths of Muslims?
Has the CAIR website ever issued a condemnation of the literature found in American mosques, preaching hate for the United States?
Has the CAIR website ever issued a condemnation of the madrassas that are on American soil and yet teach their students that Christianity and Judaism are false religions, and that the students should be loyal to the Qur'an, not to the United States Constitution?
The idiots in the mainstream media have proven to be useless. They are quick to condemn those who speak the truth about what lives among us and just as quick to defend those among us who are here with bad intentions.
Blogs dedicated to protecting America against terrorism are troubling the Muslim community.
Here is how Ahmed Bedier, spokesman for the Tampa Bay chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, described Joe Kaufman of Americans Against Hate: "He's spreading lies, slandering individuals...These are vigilantes."
Oh come on, Bedier, if this were true, your sensational gathering of peaceful, loving Muslims over at CAIR would be working on filing a lawsuit for slander or libel against Mr. Kaufman, just as they did against Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR and Congressman Cass Ballenger.
The Council on American Islamic Relations: its name is inappropriate, and its mission statement is meaningless. Its officials have adhered to neither one. CAIR says that its "mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding."
Well, they have certainly enhanced understanding of Islam, although not perhaps always in ways they intended to do so. However, when it comes to "encouraging dialogue" and "building coalitions" they are about as potent as a wet match.
So who is gonna get us all killed first? The gutless morons in the mainstream media to whom groups like CAIR run, screaming "Islamophobia"? Or our vote-digging politicians who have fallen for false Muslim population voter figures, and who hold hands with the Saudi jihadists?
The people who know the truth, despite all the never-ending efforts to hide it from them, must never stop blogging. Truth is not bigotry. Truth is not vigilantism. Truth is truth.
