Regular Jihad Watch poster DC Watson has sent us this respectful and well-documented series of questions from an American citizen to Islamic advocacy groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations, challenging the prevailing dhimmitude of most public discourse on Islam in America.
“Relations”: the very word gives one the positive mindset of working as a team to accomplish established goals. Throughout the past 228 years, Americans have fought through their own differences of opinion to achieve great successes for this nation. What I and tens of millions of others want to know is your interpretation of the term “relations.” Webster’s Dictionary defines it as “an aspect or quality (as resemblance) that connects two or more things or parts as being or belonging or working together.”
I didn’t write this column to accuse Muslim organizations of having ties to terrorist networks. That issue has already been addressed elsewhere, so there’s no need to address it here. The purpose of this particular column is to ask precise questions of Islamic Advocacy groups, and to obtain precise, honest answers. It appears that the kindness and generosity of the American people has been sadly mistaken for weakness and ignorance.
Thankfully, several Middle East scholars and apostates from Islam have educated us well about true Islam, including verses contained in the Qur’an, and on the outdated Shari’ah Legal system.
While I certainly don’t believe that all Muslims are bad people, I do believe that there is an agenda in the Muslim world to somehow attempt to become Masters of the Universe. Whether through violence or through manipulation of Governments, Islamic radicals are attempting to rule the roost. Since we’re labeled Islamophobic, intolerant, ignorant, and jingoistic for not swallowing Islamic propaganda, perhaps you can address and answer for all of us the following:
“¢ Please explain separately Qur’an verses 4:34, 4:89, 5:17, 5:51, 8:12, 9:5 and 9:29.
“¢ As Americans learn of beheadings, car bombings, rapes, kidnappings and eventual assassinations of innocent men and women being committed by members of the Islamic faith, how would you go about explaining to your fellow Muslims that their behavior is a “hijacking” of Islam?
“¢ What would you say to the “Janjaweed” in Darfur, Sudan, as they hack innocent men, women and children with machetes, rape, loot, and murder innocent Africans?
“¢ What explanation could you possibly provide regarding stories like that of a 16-year-old Iranian girl who was charged with committing “acts incompatible with chastity,” when in fact she was a rape victim? She was not afforded a lawyer and was forced to defend herself. She told the Judge that he shouldn’t punish the victims, but punish the rapists. She was hanged in public, not for the adultery, but according to the Islamic Judge, for “having a sharp tongue.”
“¢ Why have Islamic clerics even in the U.S. preached hate for the West and condoned terrorism?
“¢ Since mosques are houses of Islamic worship, is it appropriate to raise funds for terrorist activities inside them? What are you doing to make sure this is not happening in mosques in America?
“¢ Islam, the “religion of peace,” has believers that live and work in the United States, living comfortable lives with respectable occupations. With that in mind, is it appropriate for them to be living the American dream while calling for an uprising (Intifada) against the United States Government?
“¢ Why have American citizens had civil suits brought against them for speaking out against the activities of Muslims?

“¢ While members of all other faiths are respectful of the uniforms they wear while at work or in the athletic arena, and of American law, why do Muslims expect special accommodations to be made for the wearing of Islamic headscarves, and go as far as filing suit in order to cover their faces in a Driver License Picture?
“¢ While I”m aware that Constitutional legal barriers haven’t been crossed, I”m also aware that Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists are prohibited from promoting their faiths in public schools. So why are Muslim guest speakers gaining entry into American public schools to discuss Islam with our children, when Church and State are separate in America?
“¢ Since Muslim organizations seem to defend every Muslim that’s arrested, claiming profiling, racism, religious bias, and unwarranted arrest, are Americans supposed to believe that all Muslims are merely a group of peaceful immigrants, and that every Muslim suspect arrested is completely innocent and simply a target of racism and intolerance, even when they”ve admitted their crimes?
“¢ This issue is of substantial concern. Is it true that a prominent Islamic figure made this statement? “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.” Was this actually said? You”ve got to be kidding me. The Koran the highest authority in America? Islam the only accepted religion on earth? Excuse me while my head stops spinning! I couldn’t believe this one.

Welcome to the United States of America. We speak English here. We’re a free nation. We work hard, drink beer, take care of our family and friends, and play hard. Although the religious majority is overwhelmingly Christian, we’re tolerant of all races and religions. You”re welcome to practice your faith here, but you can forget about dominating anything.
You can stay, as long as you respect our laws and our citizens. Understand that it’s not our responsibility to adapt to your culture. It’s your responsibility to adapt to ours. You”re in our house, so you follow the house rules. The preservation of American Culture, American Borders, the English language, and the United States Constitution remain at the forefront of the American Patriot agenda.
Don’t make the mistake of underestimating the backbone, the willingness, or the means at our disposal to do what’s necessary in protecting this ‘to-do list.” Since you seem to be the voice for Muslims in America, please relay this to your followers — for the sake of peace.
