D. C. Watson explores the bullying attempts to limit freedom of speech and overall goals of some American Muslims:
Last week, accusations of “hate speech” and “Islamophobia” were levied against Robert Spencer and the Jihad Watch website by the “esteemed” Council on American Islamic Relations. http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/008906.php
Then CAIR claimed that the “growing level of Islamophobic rhetoric in American society prompts some individuals to turn their hate-filled views into violent actions.”
That sounds familiar. Probably because they said it here too, when they went after National Review online for selling a book called “The life and religion of Mohammed.”
For some reason, likely because the book tells the truth about this raider, they don’t want people to read it.
Regarding these allegations, unless CAIR can produce evidence of Jihad Watch director Robert Spencer himself making verbal or written statements that can be construed as hateful or incitement to commit violent acts against Muslims, their shameful remarks, which can be added to their long list of shameful remarks, should be dismissed as utter nonsense.
Since we are addressing the issue, some of these so-called “hate filled views” and “violent actions” against Muslims that have been blamed on the American people were falsely reported to American law enforcement. Weren’t they now?
Here is a partial list of Muslims who have reported hate crimes that have turned out to be”¦nothing at all: Ahmad Nasim, Ahmed Jaffal, Amjad Abunar, Azad Abdullah, Mazhar Tabesh, Mirza Akram, Naveed Khan, Saleh Nawash, Zhaleh Sarabakhsh, Ahmad Saad Nasim, Mazhar Tabesh, Nezar Maad, Aqil Yassom Al-Timimi
Also last week, in a column entitled “Bigotry”, I quoted not only some of the employees of CAIR, but also Muslim leaders throughout the Islamic world. http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/008932.php
Perhaps CAIR simply took the Jihad Watch readers” comments on the site out of context. After all, the “out of context” excuse is often used by Islamists once they realize that they”ve gone too far with their own hate speech or idiotic comments:
“Muslim leaders clarify anti-Semitic remarks”:
“Out of context in Australia”.
“Mahathir: Jew-Hatred “Taken Out of Context”
Nevertheless, as I stated in “Bigotry,” Americans are free to like or dislike anything or anyone they choose. They are also free to express their opinions verbally, in written form, through art, and in song, as it is guaranteed by the First Amendment of the American Bill of Rights.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Are Americans supposed to forget that 9/11 happened, and in what religion the perpetrators believed? After all, the surviving writings of Muhammad Atta make it quite clear that he did what he did in the name of that religion.
Are they supposed to pretend that they don’t hear about Muslim fanatics blowing themselves up on the news on what seems to be a daily basis — and also justifying this on religious grounds?
Are they expected by groups like CAIR to ignore the fact that Islamic beliefs and democracy do not, cannot, and will not correlate, which is proven every day in countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran?
Perhaps it would be wise for those in the American Muslim community who enjoy the freedoms that the United States offers, who stringently follow the laws of the United States Constitution, and not the laws of the Qur’an to publicly shun these Islamic groups.
Dr. Daniel Pipes and Khalid Duran have offered a great deal of information about the American Islamic community, and how a good number of Muslims in the United States aren’t practicing Islam as stringently as the Islamic militants here would like. The question arises: do American Muslims need or want their lives to be affected in any way by the activities of these organizations? http://www.cis.org/articles/2002/back802.pdf
These pillars of society have double-crossed the American public, including many Muslims, by speaking out both sides of their mouths. On one hand, they claim to promote dialogue with non-Muslims and aim for pluralism, yet during their Muslim gatherings, they spin a one-eighty and elaborate on their desires for an Islamic United States.
Siraj Wahhaj: “I have a vision in America, Muslims owning property all over, Muslim businesses, factories, halal meat, supermarkets, all these buildings owned by Muslims. Can you see the vision, can you see the Newark International Airport and a John Kennedy Airport and LaGuardia having Muslim fleets of planes, Muslim pilots. Can you see our trucks rolling down the highways, Muslim names.
Can you imagine walking down the streets of Teaneck, [New Jersey]: three Muslim high schools, five Muslim junior-high schools, fifteen public schools. Can you see the vision, can you see young women walking down the street of Newark, New Jersey, with long flowing hijab and long dresses. Can you see the vision of an area of no crime, controlled by the Muslims?”
Zaid Shakir: “Muslims cannot accept the legitimacy of the secular system in the United States, for it “is against the orders and ordainments of Allah . . . the orientation of the Qur’an pushes us in the exact opposite direction as the forces that are at work in the American political spectrum.”
Shamin A. Siddiqi: To permit Islam to attain its rightful place requires that the “ideology of Islam prevail over the mental horizon of the American people. “The future of the Muslim world now depends on how soon the Muslims of America are able to build up their own indigenous movement.”
Ihsan Bagby: “Ultimately we can never be full citizens of this country (United States). . . because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.”
Apparently, despite the mainstream media’s efforts to ignore this shell game, the CAIR organization and others like it appear to be finding out that at the end of the day, a steadily increasing amount of the American public is onto it. This is the United States, baby. No one bullies us into liking or respecting them. Respect must be earned.
So for these Muslim “leaders” who can’t envision anything in their future but Islam far as the eye can see, who dream of the ideology of Islam prevailing over the mental horizon of the American people, or cannot accept the legitimacy of the secular system in the United States because it “is against the orders and ordainments of Allah”, this is not the place for you, and you should find a society more to your liking.
