In light of the absolute apathy from the left-leaning community towards what Islam advocates within their religion, I have decided to start including posts that call attention to what is happening in homelands of the “Religion Of Peace”. It is my contention that there is no peace in Islam and that despite attempts at taqiyya when asked about it, true followers of Islam will carry these acts out if given the chance even here in America. It is important that this stuff is shared somewhere because whether Americans choose to follow this stuff or not, it is going on everyday around the world. I am going to be creating a new category titled, “Religion Of (No) Peace” which will include my posts.
We can choose to bury our heads in the sand and ignore what is happening but that only serves to stop it from happening in our conscious thought. What about the people that are victims of perhaps the most violent theology on the planet today? We may choose to say that this is how they practice in their homelands but it’s different in America. Does that somehow make those who follow the religion in a less violent way the true representatives of the religion? We may choose to suggest that those in the land of Islam are just following a strict form of the religion. Aren’t we merely mitigating the religion or the followers here in America to create a social acceptance of it? When was the last time an American court ordered the cutting off of a hand for theft? When was the last time an American court or any religious leader in America carried out the death sentence of anyone for leaving their religion? When was the last time that an American court ordered anyone to be stoned to death?
Stoning to death… burying a human being in the ground up to mid chest level with their arms in the ground while a bunch of people throw stones larger than softballs at the upper torso of that person who is now defenseless above ground. Here in America, too many on the left scream for changes to the death penalty because it is cruel and unusual punishment while they still think it’s ok to have partial birth abortions or any abortions at all. It is that hypocrisy combined with the apathy towards Islam that exposes just how confused the liberal folks are today.
It is baffling how so many on the left will decry religion altogether but rally behind Islam. Ever notice how many liberals push for gay rights while still welcoming Islam as a misunderstood religion? Have they no idea what the Qur’an says about homosexuality? Would they like to state their open support for the gay lifestyle on the street corners of Medina, Tehran, or Cairo? This support for Islam by the liberal members of the Democrat Party exemplifies the very truth in the proverbial expression, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” All that they are doing is using the cause of Islam to further advance the goals of the Democratic Party. What seems to elude these people is that their newfound ally will just as quickly consume them once Islam is done with them. This relationship is only as deep as the respect that the true followers of Islam have for gays, religious tolerance, women’s equal rights, and free society in general.
What part of the definition of Islam do they fail to understand? Islam means “submit”. The practitioners of Islam may insist that the submission is to Allah and there is truth to that, however the liberals fail to accept the part in the Qur’an that calls for non-believers to be killed. Don’t think that is true today? Read through the Pew Research Center’s report from December 2010 where they discuss the issues regarding Islam in politics as well as general society in several Middle Eastern countries. In their research, Pew takes on the application of Sharia Law and asks on a nation by nation basis how the people feel towards stoning, death penalty, and the administering of severe laws for certain “crimes.”
But what about just being born a woman? Would you want to be forced into a marriage with someone not of your choosing? How terrible must that be to be forced to marry someone that you’ve never met and can’t divorce either. Or even worse, because your deciding chromosome came up as a “X” instead of a “Y” you have to endure a particularly disturbing practice of female genital mutilation… This is very real and very common practice that is happening daily throughout Egypt and is covered very well by Bunkerville in this article here.
Now let’s examine why Islamization is a real and serious concern for America… As we see the events continue to unfold in Egypt, we’re seeing a possible microcosm of what could happen throughout the East. We are witnessing the fall of “Mubarak the dictator” in the media’s reporting but what is missing is the fall of a moderate leader who worked for maintaining a peaceful balance between the hardline muslims and the Coptic Christians as well as the other smaller religions in Egypt. It is already evident that, should the Muslim Brotherhood achieve power over the country, we will see a tremendous change in the relationship of Egypt and any non-muslim nation. What should we watch for in this period of disorder? What we are seeing is a rising tide of Muslim extremism(by American media standards only) that is about to overtake the general status quo of a regional ally. We need to observe how hardline muslims transform a country that has had little to no problems with their neighbors into a country like Iran where there is a heightened level of distrust amongst them and the rest of the civilized world.
Looking beyond the change in the Middle East alone, we need to recognize the population growth of muslims throughout many of the European countries and examine carefully the influence that they are having on the traditions and policies of those countries. We, here at home, also need to understand that the growth in America is very much real and we are already starting to see the pressure that comes from the muslim community. With such loud vocal groups as CAIR constantly barking at every single issue that comes up in America while semi-secretly telling the members of Islam to not work with government agencies, we need to ask, “Can we really trust these people?” Let’s not overlook ISNA, International Society of North America, who works with the muslim youth(the future of muslims in America). They are propagating the idealistic mindset of muslims in America while working in conjunction with North American Trust which is the financial side of ISNA. All three of these organizations are labeled as a “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Fund trial in 2007 where the HLF was convicted of funneling donations to Hamas and other Islamic extremist groups. It should be noted that the HLF was the LARGEST Islamic charity in the US at the time. The founders of HLF were sentenced to life after being proven to have funneled $12 million dollars to Hamas. So, are we expected to trust these leading Islamic groups in America which seek to gain a position of respect while they are involved in rallying money for terrorists?
At some point we must decide whether the so-called moderates are really friends or are just subversives trying to gain a foothold so that they can pretend to be a legitimate organization while they enact their future deconstruction of America like they’ve done in Egypt, Iran, and are setting up to do in Europe. The line between moderate muslim and hardline muslims becomes indistinguishable when you look at a member of CAIR handing money to the Holy Land Fund who then hands it to Hamas in order to carry out terrorism. Can you really tell the difference anymore? Even though CAIR says that they are moderate and they want to be accepted as a friend of America and her allies, they are only one set of hands away from the Hamas militants who are killing America’s allies and even Americans themselves.
It is time for America to put aside the rose-colored politically correct glasses and put on her bifocals. We must first take in what we see, hear, and read… then we must analyze it very carefully against what has already happened and against what is happening in the world around us. Remember, some in America may want to see Islam as the “Religion Of Peace” but we can’t take our interpretations of religion in the West and transpose them on the religion of the Middle East. We have to ask ourselves, are they lying in the poll conducted by Pew Research Group and in their acts against humanity or are they lying to us in order to gain power over us. That may seem like a far-fetched concept or that will never happen here but what can happen in 30 years time? Hosni Mubarak can come to power as an ally and well respected by his people and 30 years later he can be overthrown by a powerful muslim movement called the Muslim Brotherhood.
Did you know that they have branches all throughout America and their motto is, “God is our purpose, the Prophet our leader, the Qur’an our constitution, Jihad our way and dying for God’s cause our supreme objective.” Do you still want to trust them?
*** I want to add two excellent articles to consider reading after mine:
- Wake Up World. The Enemy Has A Name. That Name Is Islam at Conservatives On Fire
- THE LEFTIST TOWER OF BABEL at My Tea Party Chronicle
Both are well written and will cause you to take a moment to consider what we’re seeing and what’s happening in America and the world.
