More anti-dhimmitude from DC Watson and Kevin Montavon:
A case and a half of cold beer later, we have some important questions.
Shouldn’t the core of America’s Homeland Security efforts be to institute responsible immigration policies and border enforcement? Wouldn’t it be more difficult for Islamic terrorists to carry out an attack on U.S. soil if they were unable to get into the United States in the first place?
Is the communication gap so wide that even after 9/11, our government authorizes a Muslim organization like the Council on American Islamic Relations to conduct “Muslim sensitivity” training for American law enforcement personnel, even after the same government has successfully prosecuted several of CAIR’s own (now former) officers on terrorism- and fraud-related crimes? (These officials are now in prison or have been deported.)
Should our public schools be allowing these people to speak to American school students about Islam?
Why should the Qur’an be used in American courtrooms for Muslims to swear upon to tell the truth, when the book itself permits them to lie?
Qur’an 3:28: “Let not the believers take the disbelievers for friends rather than believers. And whoever does this has no connection with Allah unless it is done to guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully. And Allah cautions you against His retribution. And to Allah is the eventual coming.”
Qur’an 16:106: “Any one who, after accepting faith in Allah, utters unbelief, except under compulsion, his heart remaining firm in Faith – but such as open their breast to Unbelief, on them is Wrath from Allah, and theirs will be a dreadful penalty.”
Why should anything Islamic be instituted in any American governmental venues when Islam has had nothing to do with the founding, advancement, or successes of the United States?
CAIR’s mission statement states that the organization strives “to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.” After nearly a dozen years of tumultuous existence, when might they begin this mission?
“Since its establishment in 1994, CAIR has worked to promote a positive image of Islam and Muslims in America.”
“CAIR seeks to empower the American Muslim community and encourage their participation in political and social activism.”
So when they say “work to promote a positive image of Islam,” and “encourage participation in political and social activism,” is it fair to say that their idea of this consists of:
— Calling on American employers to reprimand or fire their American employees who criticize Islam?
Harassing the American advertisers of American media outlets in an attempt to damage the media outlet financially, or give them unwarranted negative publicity because their American employees speak negatively of Islam?
Filing lawsuits against their American critics who point out their questionable ties to Islamic terrorist networks?
Inventing words such as “Islamophobia” and “Islamophobe” in order to attack American critics of Muhammad and his bloody, ruinous life on earth?
(For all peaceful Muslims — those who are decent people and don’t mean any harm to anyone — this is not meant to disrespect you personally. However, the organizations that claim to be protecting you appear to be using you to advance an agenda not of diversity, but one of Shari’ah law, oppression, and bigotry.)
You know, this agenda: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” ~ Omar Ahmad-CAIR
“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.” ~ Ibrahim Hooper-CAIR
While many Muslims can co-exist in the West, Islam itself, as it is practiced by so many fanatics, absolutely cannot. It simply isn’t formatted to integrate into free societies, and is in direct contradiction with democracy. Muslim women already know this.
— Press for the Qur’an to be used in American courtrooms although this book offers nothing to anyone who wants to live in freedom and democracy, while at the same time telling non-Muslims that Islam is peaceful as the bombs continue to go off and the throats continue to be slashed?
Why would a board member and co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, who publicly stated in 1994 that he was “in support of the Hamas movement,” be permitted to serve on Vice President Al Gore’s Civil Rights Advisory Panel to the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security in 1997?
Why, since he publicly stated that he is a supporter of Hamas, a network that the United States government has designated as a terrorist organization, has Nihad Awad been a regular participant in the U.S. Department of State’s “International Visitors Program,” which welcomes foreign dignitaries, journalists and academics who are currently visiting the President of the United States?
As CAIR claims that their mission is to “build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding,” why would they appoint to their board Ihsan Bagby, who stated that “ultimately we can never be full citizens of this country, because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country”?
Why would members of our own government stand before the nation and label Islam a religion of peace shortly after Muslims murdered three thousand people on September 11th, 2001, and continue to tell Americans this while certain Muslim organizations have spent the past four years calling names and tattling as if they’re in the third grade?
Why do certain Muslims, still angry about the Crusades after 900 years, push the myth that the Crusades were an attempt at genocide, when in fact it was they who engaged in genocide up to and during the time when Europeans realized the threat of Muslim aggression and fought back?
At what point did Islam become a race?
Why do Islamist organizations inflate Muslim population figures? Where are the official census figures to support their inflated claims?
The population of the United States includes people who follow several various religions. So why is it that it is only certain Muslim organizations that create so many problems for everyone else? How can so many people from so many other religions live in America with little to no difficulty, while Islamic groups continue with so many questionable complaints?
Are these organizations simply demonstrating their inability to coexist with Americans and Westerners in general?
Do we ever hear from any Council on American Jewish Relations, Hindu Relations, or Buddhist Relations, calling Americans Judeophobes, Hinduphobes, or Buddhophobes?
Muslim mouthpieces: If you want to live under Islamic law, then haul yourselves off to an Islamic nation. Free speech will continue to be practiced in the United States. Just as this column has been published, countless more, authored by an endless number of American patriots, will follow. The truth is not bigotry or hate speech. It only hurts those with thin, spindly skin, or those who have something to hide.
Over the airwaves, on the web, and in the streets, the truth will continue to be told.
