A new article by our old friend D. C. Watson:
After Barack Obama’s recent speech to the “Muslim world”, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder followed up with this statement: "The President's pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcement and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all of our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth.”
There are moderate, sensible Muslims living in America who should be heard. They’re the ones who get up and go to work every day so they can support their families, and don’t cause problems with everyone, play false victim, or bellyache about how bad they have it in America. They won’t be found preaching hate to congregations in mosques, teaching in madrassas, or working for Islamic “civil rights” and “advocacy” organizations.
Islam has been at war with non-Muslims or within itself for the better part of its existence. It has been spread by war or battle. There is a jihad underway in many part of the world right now. This will not change without reformation of the belief system itself. Pointing the finger of blame in the wrong direction and not facing down threats is for pretenders and chumps.
The United States and the American people are not the problem here.
This…is the problem:
Saudi funded hate literature that has been found in the majority of mosques in America.
Islamic schools in America that teach their students that:
“All religions other than Islam are false, including that of the Jews and Christians.”
That it is “better to shun and even to dislike Christians, Jews and Shiite Muslims.”
That it is “okay to steal from or hurt whoever is non-Muslim (kuffar).”
Islamic advocacy and “civil rights” groups, in particular the Council on American Islamic Relations, which:
Was named an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation’s Hamas funding case.
Produces flawed reports pertaining to “anti-Muslim hate crimes,” for example, “Unequal Protection”: “The Status of Muslim Civil Rights in the United States 2005”
Declined to testify at the September 10, 2003 Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism, Technology and Homeland Security hearing.
Attempts to stifle free speech that is critical of Islam.
Files frivolous civil lawsuits against its critics in attempts to silence them.
Islamic charities: Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, Benevolence International Foundation, Global Relief Foundation, KindHearts
The likes of Ali Warrayat, Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, Ibrahim Ahmed, and Omeed Aziz Popal… who got behind the wheel of their respective vehicles, mowed down innocent American citizens with them, and destroyed the property of others.
Naveed Afzal Haq, who held a gun to the back of a 14-year-old girl to force his way into the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. Haq, stating that he was a "Muslim American angry at Israel," shot six unarmed women, and killing one. One of the women whom this jihadist shot was pregnant.
CAIR employees Randall “Ismail” Royer and Ghassan Elashi, who were convicted of committing terror related crimes, and CAIR employee Bassem Khafagi, founder of the Islamic Assembly of North America (IANA), an organization investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice for terrorism-related activities, who was convicted of visa and bank fraud, and deported.
Abdel El Siddig, Abdurahman Alamoudi, Ahmad Mustapha, Ahmed Bilal, Ali Chandia, Ali Bagegni, Basman Elsahi, Bayan Elashi, Donald Suratt, James Ujaama, Ehsanul Sadequee, Elbaneh Jaber, Fadal Maatouk, Fawzi Assi, Faysal Galab, Habis Al-Saoub, Hamid Hayat, Hamad Raheem, Hassan Abujihaad, Hassan Makki, Ihsan Elashi, Iyman Faris, John Walker Lindh, Kifah Jayoussi, Maher Haywash, Mahmoud Kourani, Mahmud Brent, Masoud Khan, Mohamad Darwiche, Mohamed Shorbagi, Mohammed al-Moayad, Mohammed Badwan, Mohammed Baber, Mohammed Yousry, Naji Khalil, Nemr Rahal, Sahim Alwan, Said Jarabaa, Saifullah Ranjha, Sayed Ahmed, Saifullah Chapman, Shafal Mosed, Tarik Shah, Uzair Paracha, Yahya Goba, Yasin Taher, and Youssef Bakri… for financing or providing support to terrorist organizations.
Ahmad Nasim, Amjad Abunar, Azad Abdullah, Mazhar Tabesh, Mirza Akram, Musa Shteiwi, Naveed Khan, Safia Jilani, Saleh Nawash, and Zhaleh Sarabakhsh… Arson and/or destruction of their own property and businesses, then falsely accusing Americans of carrying out the crimes.

Wael Kalash, who recently stabbed a female Ohio State University student in the abdomen while she was innocently waiting for a bus.
Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, who shot and killed American soldier, William Long, in Arkansas and wounded American soldier, Quinton Ezeagwula, outside an Armed Forces recruiting center.
Muslim cab drivers who have refused to transport passengers thought to be carrying alcohol from airports and elsewhere.
Mahmoud Awad, who physically pulled his female passenger out of the taxi he was driving because she had her guide dog with her, damaging her already broken wrist. CAIR defended Awad, stating that "the saliva of dogs invalidates the ritual purity needed for prayer."
In a similar situation, Hassan Taher refused to allow the guide dog of Annie McEachrin, a passenger who has been blind since birth, into his taxi citing religious beliefs. Who came to his defense when McEachrin complained to the city? CAIR reps, who stated: "People from the Middle East especially, we have been indoctrinated with a kind of fear of dogs. The driver has a genuine fear and he acted in good faith. He's acted in accordance with his religious beliefs."
So which is it, CAIR? Saliva? Or fear?
Waheed Allah Mohammad, who repeatedly stabbed his sister because she was a "bad Muslim girl.”
Ahmad Abdelmomen, who beat up his sister breaking her back over her relationship with a non-Muslim boy; his parents didn’t seek medical attention for the girl because they believed that the beating was justified.
Yaser Abdel Said, who shot and killed his two teenage daughters in the back seat of his taxi cab after finding out that they were dating American boys.
On campus there is the Muslim Students Association:, spawned by the Muslim Brotherhood, whose philosophy has been made clear: "God is our objective, the Koran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, struggle is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations."
Former MSA president at U.C.L.A. Ahmed Shama has echoed this type of sentiment by stating: "We want to restore Islam to the leadership of society...The end goal of everything that we're talking about is the re-establishment of the Islamic form of government." Additionally, Shama has said that "the only justification that Muslims have to live in this country (United States) is 'da'wah' (extending an invitation to Islam)."
Aside from this organization's repeated attempts to disrupt and shut down discussions on college campuses that raise the issue of Islamic extremism, the MSA backed away from endorsing or participating in the May 2005 "Free Muslims March Against Terror," an event whose stated intent was to "send a message to the terrorists and extremists that their days are numbered ... and to send a message to the people of the Middle East, the Muslim world and all people who seek freedom, democracy and peaceful coexistence that we support them."
The MSA has reportedly gone so far as to intimidate moderate Muslims in America for refusing to subscribe to the organization's extremist line.
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Survey 5/14-17/2009 found that "many Americans hold unfavorable view of Muslim world." "One in five Americans has a favorable view of Muslim countries." "Six out of ten think that the Muslim world considers itself at war with the U.S."
A Washington Post/ABC Opinion Poll 3/26-29/2009 found that "Most Back Outreach to Muslim Nations, but Suspicion and Unfamiliarity Persist." "Americans by 48% to 41% hold an unfavorable opinion of Islam — its highest unfavorable rating in ABC/Post polls since 2001." "29 percent express the belief that mainstream Islam encourages violence against non-Muslims — down slightly from its peak, but double what it was early in 2002." "Forty-five percent now feel they basically understand the religion, 5 points above its previous high and 20 points above its low in 2002."
CBS News 4/12/2006: "Poll: Sinking Perceptions Of Islam." What is your impression of Islam? Favorable 19% Unfavorable 45%
Washington Post 3/9/2006: "Negative Perception of Islam Increasing- Poll Numbers in U.S. Higher Than in 2001" Favorable Opinion of Islam: 43% Unfavorable Opinion of Islam 46% No Opinion 11%
The poll numbers are compelling. They are not the result of illusions or phobias, but the result of the documented behavioral examples on display in this article.
