“Islamophobic! Ignorant!” cried two Imams recently on their way to an Islamophobia conference. Two Memphis clerics, dressed in Muslim garb were removed from a flight because, according to the pilot, the passengers were “uncomfortable.” Forty- eight hours later, dozens of news stories decried the injustice of it all while only one reported that a cleric had gone into the airplane bathroom for an extended period of time and departed leaving apparent damage.
No news report reminded readers that Osama Bin Laden had been killed less than a week before or that the cry for vengeance was subsequently ringing out. None of those news reports spoke of daily demonstrations since his death with chants of “USA you will pay! Muslims are on their way!” No mention of Muslims holding signs saying “Democracy burn in hell!” or “Muslims will annihilate the Crusade!” It was the passengers and pilot who showed ignorance, not the press clueless to the context.
The American people get the dangers of Islam. Radicalism not withstanding, they instinctively know Islam is trouble in nearly every country it inhabits: Kuwait…Iraq…Egypt…Sudan…Somalia…Iran…Yemen…Libya…Indonesia…Philippines. The common denominator that brings violence, murder, chaos, beheadings, revenge and brutality toward women is the teaching of Islam. The so-called “radical” elements of the teaching are deeply imbedded in the Islamic text…not just a mention…but a mantra to kill or conquer:
Qur’an 8:12: Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: I am with you. Give firmness to the believers. I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.
Even as they are assured of how “peaceful” Islam is, actions speak louder than words and the American people get it. The elites in Washington and the press don’t; nor do the elites in Hollywood or the studios of New York. They shame and scold all who would express concern. They cluck their tongues in derision at those who would issue a warning. But the American people….full of common sense and a strong ability to smell truth when it wafts their way, are not fooled.
Republican Presidential contender Herman Cain courageously declared he would not appoint a Muslim who adhered to Sharia (Muslim law) to a cabinet post or judgeship. He’s being roundly condemned for his Islamophobia.
“Islam is our goal…The Prophet Mohammed our leader…The Qur’an is our constitution….Jihad is our way And death in the way of Allah is our promised end.”
That is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood. Suhail Kahn, the son of the American founder can be seen on videotape proudly reciting it. Incomprehensibly, he was once a former member of the Bush Administration who, because of that misguided decision, still holds positions of prestige in DC. And those who question his loyalties are called Islamophobic by Washington leaders because they object to giving him a place of honor or trust. The Washington establishment…media…government…military…FBI…Justice…seem to have gone mad.
Rather than admit their mistakes, they dig in their heels and insist on their superior intellect at providing defense for the indefensible. As we speak, the Justice Department under Eric Holder has determined prosecuting the mistreatment of Muslims one of the department’s highest priorities. Filled with attorneys who previously provided defense for Islamic terrorists, including the Attorney General himself, the department has become a barely disguised arm of the Jihad movement, even if some of the attorneys themselves are merely the ignorant pawns.
The FBI is recruiting for agents in Jihad-friendly publications while pumping its agents with constant admonitions to eschew “Islamophobia.” Islamic men in full garb are invited to FBI Citizen academies to learn methods of investigation, carrying prayer rugs and retreating into secured buildings at designated times to offer their prayers. Agents dare not complain for complaining is, of course, Islamophobic.
While brilliantly prosecuting the fight against Islamic terrorism, leaders in the Pentagon, expressing that same “broad-minded” intelligence have appointed radical Islamists to high positions in the Chaplain program, built Islamic Centers at Quantico and West Point, and threatened and fired loyal Americans for merely expressing concern. Anyone doubting the gravity of these situations has only to remember Major Nidal Hassan…allowed to rant and spew hate while “counseling” returning soldiers…eventually shooting and killing fourteen of them. An isolated case? Emphatically “no!” Consider the following:
- American Abdurahman Alamoudi, serving a 23 yr year prison sentence on federal terrorism charges, hand picked Muslim military chaplains still serving.
- Guantanamo Chaplain, Army Captain James “Yousef” Yee was accused of mishandling classified information with Gitmo prisoners. His predecessor was a Wahhabi-trained chaplain, promoted personally by Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England, to a higher position of influence.
- Five Muslim soldiers were overheard discussing poisoning the food supply at Ft. Jackson in 2009. The army downplayed the incident and later dismissed four of them on what they said were “petty crimes.”
- The “09 Lima” translator program recruited Muslims from the Arab world, brought them to America to train alongside our soldiers and offered them an accelerated path to citizenship. Several federal translators have since been charged with espionage-related crimes.
And yet we are told that any caution on our part…any fear for our safety as well as that of our families and friends is silly ignorance: Islamophobia.
Other elites bludgeon with invocations of First Amendment rights or the Constitutional Clause espousing “no religious test.” But Islam is not a religion like Christianity or Buddhism or Judaism. It is a political system…a banking system…a legal system that seamlessly imposes itself over any existing social norm or law or practice in any society in which it thrives.
CAIR Chairman Omar M. Ahmad expressed it best to a group of California Muslims in July 1998:
“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.”
And in the words of mass-murdering-Islamic-traitor, Major Nidal Hassan, “We love death more than you love life!”
Given the facts, Islamophobia is the only rational response to what we have seen and experienced as Americans. If so-called “Moderate Muslims” want acceptance, they will have to shed Sharia and swear loyalty to this country. Anything less will continue to breed rightful suspicion and common sense self-preservation.
While Washington, Hollywood and New York elites cluck and preen, we, the American people will not be fooled nor intimidated by foolish arrogance that could lead to the destruction of this country. Islamophobia is the only rational response and we will act on it accordingly.
