What Many Refuse to See

The Tea Party movement in my locale fought a relentless battle against local and national elites. They stood up to the hatred spewed forth by their neighbors and refused to compromise. However, they willingly blinded themselves to a threat greater than Obama, Pelosi and Reid.

There is a friend whom I greatly respect. She's a hard working single mother doing her best to raise her children. She attends school full time, works part time, and tries to spend every available moment with her kids. She is a strong conservative, and holds faith in God. Yet, her and I differ on an issue of extreme importance.

For quite a while, Fox News boldly stood in the gap left wide open by the MSM (Main Stream Media) and attempted to unabashedly stand for the truth. Yet now they have chosen the wrong side in an issue which directly relates to the security of America - and the world as well.

What is the issue of contention which all three above share? Islam. Instead of recognizing that it has always been a Fascist "religion" bent on world domination, they claim instead that it was always based upon peace and only recently has been "hijacked" by radicals. They forget that the word Islam being translated means "submission."

Geert Wilders has taken the literal "stand" for not only the freedom of speech, but also the "stand" against the Islamization of Europe. He is now being vilified by many of the same conservatives who refuse to open their eyes to the truth about Islam.

Islam was started by a man who was certainly sane, just as Hitler was. As soon as his followers grew in numbers and strength, Mohammad launched a holy war throughout the region - conquering and slaughtering many. He gave permission for men to have four wives (with himself being allowed more) while he married a child and consummated the relationship when she was only nine years old. As such, child marriage is a huge problem in the Islamic nations, and the problem is growing in England, Canada, and the United States as well. Also, as the spoils of war, he gave permission for his soldiers to take females as slaves and to have their way with them. Since the women were slaves, they would not count against the wifely limit of four.

Mohammad also created the institute of dhimmitude. In practice, it gave non-Muslims living within Islamic controlled territories the option to either convert, or live under domination as second class citizens. In addition, those Dhimmis were required to pay the jizya - basically a blackmail fee. This institution is still in effect today.

Muslims later on sacked and overran Christian controlled Jerusalem, slaughtering everyone within. Many critics will state that the Christians did the same during the Crusades, thus this point is not valid. These same critics will also point out Christian atrocities such as the Inquisition. What they do not realize (or fail to acknowledge) is that the Inquisition was instigated by the Roman Catholic church and, during which, slaughtered many Protestant Christians as well as Jews, athiest, and so-called witches, and that the Crusades was a direct response to the Islamic invasion. That being said, it is a fact that today, every three months, more people are slaughtered by Muslims than those who lost their lives during the entire Inquisition.

As well, Islam has never kept its violent hands to the region of the Middle East. Indeed, its Jihads took Muslims throughout Europe all the way to Spain. Today, we see Muslims wage their Jihads all over the world - China, Russia, the Philippines, Africa, France, The Netherlands, England, and The United States of America are just a few of the places that currently experience Islam's bloody grasp.

Yet Islam's Jihad isn't always of the violent kind. It also seeks to instill its control through peaceful means such as the Islamic block within the United Nations (UN) attempts to ban any criticism of the religion. In addition, England is currently facing the rise of its Muslim citizens as Sharia law is forced down its throat. One needs only to keep a cursory eye on the events happening in that country (as well as most of Europe) for this to be seen.

However, it is happening in the United States as well. CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) is the most vocal of the Muslim "advocacy"groups within this nation. Whenever someone speaks up for the truth of what is happening within Islam, CAIR's lawyers will drag them to court in an attempt to intimidate and silence them. Yet it is (or should be) well known that CAIR is an "Unindicted Co-Conspirator in the terror-finance trial against the Holy Land Foundation and its former officials." As well, "federal law [enforcement believe] that [CAIR is] the product of a Hamas-support network in the United States."

When one examines the special rights given to Islam within a country that says "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion," the inconsistencies are amazing. Text books have been written where children are literally taught Islam. Public funds are used to build and maintain foot baths in airports, and are also used to create special prayer rooms in universities and other public institutions. As well, our judicial system has given Muslims the permission to take numerous breaks during their employment so that their daily prayer requirements may be met. The same rights are not extended to any other religion within the United States. Imagine the outcry if the federal government gave the same "concessions" to Christians!

The federal government itself is being corrupted within as many "mid-level" employees have been either harassed or fired due to the influence of Muslims who were "offended" by those employee's firm stand against the Islamization of the United States.

As this is unconstitutional, one might ask why it is done. Simple. It all goes back to organizations such as CAIR along with American citizens' unwillingness to be called "bigots" or "racists." Islam is slowly but surly legislating itself as the "supreme religion" within America by playing on the fears of its citizens.

All of this being said, it is important to recognize that not all Muslims are terrorists bent upon world domination. Take Christians for example. All of us either are or know of Christians who can quote the bible to an extreme extant relevant to any topic. Other Christians know a few verses by heart and attend Church. Yet still some have never read all the bible, never go to church, yet still call themselves Christians. It is the same with Muslims. There are differing degrees within all religions when one considers their followers. What one must acknowledge, however, is that those Muslims who studiously follow their holy book, the Koran, are the ones most apt to commit either terrorism or peaceful jihad. A prime example of this are the many converts to the "religion of peace" who invariably find themselves at odds with the civilized world as they engage upon acts of violence which the Koran encourages. It is a well established fact that those who convert to a religion are usually quite zealous about it.

In closing, it greatly disturbs me when otherwise staunch supporters of freedom make concessions towards a political ideology which hides under the guise of "religion." In reality, its a contradiction of their very beliefs. How can one shout their support for freedom of all, while at the same time embrace an ideology which seeks to limit the freedoms of the entire world? Why do these same people attack those of us who are willing to stand in the gap left open by them and liberals? Why are we vilified while those who strip women of equal rights, enslave others, rape and murder others, and seek to impose their will - all in the name of their religion - are held up as the beacon of "peace?"

When it comes to freedom, are American conservatives simply all "talk," or do they have the chutzpa to make a stand even when it'll make them unpopular? So far, it seems that when the going gets rough, they go running!

I can understand the fear around Islam and Islam making its way into America, especially in light of the overarching threat of terrorism. But Islam is a teeny weeny percentage of less than one percent. But America is a pluralistic country and should remain that way. People should be free to worship as they wish so long as they do not impose their religious beliefs on you. You mentioned that Muslims are extended time off several times a day to pray. I would also like to add that orthodox Jews are also extended time off for their holidays and on these numerous holidays they do not work at all. Granted, no employer or coworker wants to be impacted by yet another problem they must grapple with to ensure adequate staffing is met or a coworker having to give up their time off to accommodate another. I do believe that this issue will grow larger over time and will surely need to be addressed. Or it will be completely ignored and left to each company to set policy. I personally feel that religious practice of any kind has no business in the workplace, and leaving work to pray five times a day qualifies as practicing your religion in the workplace. I love my God too, and I can't tell you how many times I wished I could walk out of my job and pray or meditate. Religious practice should never invade the workplace which should always remain neutral ground for all employees to feel equal and fairly treated. On your comment about teaching Islam in school, I'd like to say that it is a good thing as long as those same children are taught about all world religions, their history and origins and beliefs. America embraces all peoples and should never change--that is what makes us so great.

Thank you for your comment. Please allow me to make myself clear: I am not opposed to Muslims having the sames rights to worship as the rest of us in America. The problem is, the ones I have written about are here for more than that.

From CAIR Watch (http://www.americansagainsthate.org/cw/profiles_cw.php):

"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." (Ihsan Bagby, The Muslims of America, 'Political Activities of Muslims in America,' Oxford University Press, 1991)

That link above is replete with quotations from members of CAIR.

From this site (http://www.anti-cair-net.org/):


*“I swear by Allah that war is deception,”...“We are fighting our enemy with a kind heart ... Deceive, camouflage, pretend that you’re leaving
while you’re walking that way. Deceive your enemy ...”

*"Politics Is A Completion Of War"

*“In my opinion, we must form a new organization for activism which will be neutral because we are placed in a corner, we are place in a corner. It is known who we are, we are marked and I believe that there should be
a new neutral organization which works on both sides"

- The Philadelphia Meeting -

From Omar Ahmed:
The Koran, the Muslim book
of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the
only accepted religion on Earth."

"Fighting for freedom, fighting for Islam, that is not suicide," ...
"They kill themselves for Islam."
(Ahmad Praising Suicide Bombers)

"Registering an organization is easy. I can register 100 organizations
in 100 cities in one day ..."I mean, we don't really have available
people whom we could dedicate for the work we want to hide ..."

" Politics is a completion of War "

From Ibrahim Hooper:
"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...But I'm not going to
do anything violent to promote that. I'm going to do it through education."

Again, the page referenced above is replete with quotes and information.

The point I'm making is this: Yes, Islam should have equal rights as a faith, the same as Christianity, Judaism, Atheism, etc. However, Islam is NOT here to be equal - its here to be dominant.

Yes, Children should be able to learn about Islam, just as they should be taught about the others faiths in the United States, but they are being INDOCTRINATED in Islam. California school systems actually had children take Islamic names, do prayers, etc,. IN CLASS. Islam is given special rights, and need I remind you concerning the "Flying Imans?"

I am not preaching hate against Islam, I am, however, talking about what actually IS going on right now. I'm also pointing out its history and its current state of being in the world. Take an honest examination of those countries who are ruled by Islamic law. No where is there any equality in the rights of the sexes or of religion. I can walk into any Christian church holding a Koran and be treated well. Walk into a Mosque and carry a bible or Torah. You'll soon understand what I'm writing about.

These are the facts, dear reader, that you and many others like yourself need to open your eyes to.

Thank you for your post.

Again thank you for the quotes you have provided from CAIR Watch. My eyes are open, very open to many, many things. It is no surprise to anyone, I hope, that Islam's goal is to make as many converts as possible; that is the inherent characteristic of any religion. It's also evident that Islam has a particularly virulent strain within its tenets which cause those, however few or however many, who follow Islam to do unspeakable things which have been borne out through terrorists acts to all who do not embrace Islam. All these acts have been attributed directly to the Koran and its message, by those committing acts of terrorism. I do not have to read the Koran to believe there is truth in what terrorists say when they cite Islam as their shield; their acts speak volumes. If the Muslim global community does not want others to view them as suspect,and if terrorists are indeed fringe fanatics taking Islam out of its true teaching as many Muslims have argued, then Muslims must not only publicly denounce these attacks, but also condemn these mass murderers, hold them accountable, and punish them according to the law of Islam for bearing false witness to God for all to see. Unfortunately, we have not seen this uprising within the Islamic faith and I suspect we never will; this too speaks volumes to the true message of the Koran.

All I can say about Islam indoctrination in schools is (1)is it indoctrination-a process which takes time; or (2) is it education with facts and figures which would be limited in scope and duration; or (3) is it proselytism in the guise of education? If children are indeed being indoctrinated then I have to assume it is a school of Islam teaching with parents in full agreement of what's taking place. If proselytizing is taking place under the guise of educating then I see a lawsuit in the making, and I'd run not walk to the District Attorney to file charges. If parents were more directly involved and perhaps required to attend one or two full days of class per year with their children as participants in their child's education, this sort of thing would not happen; being that America is about 76% Christian faith. The majority of parents, unfortunately, have washed their hands from any true involvement, leaving the job of educating to the educators; this is very sad indeed. I would like you to get this message out more broadly--the indoctrination of children in American schools, cite specific examples,and corrective or legal action taken thus far--and educate parents on the dangers of anyone from any religion proselytizing to school-age children.

Thank you. I am doing my part. But for more specific examples, I'd encourage you to view the following websites, as the Islamization of American (and the world) is their expertise. They are as follows:

Jihad Watch - http://www.jihadwatch.org/

Atlas Shrugs - http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/

TheReligionofPeace - http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/

Palestinian Media Watch - http://www.palwatch.org/

Islamist Watch - http://islamist-watch.org/

The information you seek is within those websites. As for what happened in California, there was indeed a lawsuit brought against the school district.
