Multiculturalism failed in the UK, Germany, and France… so why is the US a fan of multiculturalism?


Religion Of Peace? After taking a few days off to reflect on how I was going to address my new series that is called “Religion Of (No) Peace“, I have decide to continue on for a while longer. I wanted to expose the atrocities of the people acting on behalf of Islam around the world in an effort to call attention to a growing problem that our media wishes to whitewash as a peaceful religion throughout. At some point, I will wrap this series up because it has started to take over my blog and become very depressing to say the least.

I can’t for the life of me understand how people(primarily on the left) choose to take these events and mitigate them by saying “my muslim friends are not like that” as if that makes these events forgotten. Where are the voices of these muslim friends that should be calling this stuff out? Where are your own voices? If we are to take muslims to be moderates, then they must start differentiating themselves from the evil side of their religion. Their hadiths are full of teachings that direct harm unto non-believers and when those acts are perpetrated, there is no outcry of “What are you doing to my religion?” It’s as if these friends can’t take a stand against those monsters because they can’t separate the acts from the religion.

More troubling is the fact that so many on the left continue to downplay the worldwide concern that is starting to develop regarding the infiltration of muslim ideology into mainstream politics and social culture. In October 2010, when German Chancellor Angela Merkel made the startling announcement that ‘multiculturalism has failed’ in Germany, the response from the left was less than welcoming. Just a week ago, the Uk Prime Minister David Cameron relayed his concerns about the failure of ‘multiculturalism’ them as well.

German Chancellor Merkel shocked the world when she took to the world’s podium to declare, “This approach has failed, utterly failed,” in a speech delivered to the Christian Democratic Union party’s young people’s association.

“The failures of the last 30 or 40 years cannot be resolved so quickly,” she said.

 

The comments followed a similar speech from Horst Seehofer, head of the CDU’s Bavarian sister party the CSU. On Friday he declared his party’s stance against multiculturalism: “Multiculturalism is dead,” he said, to delegates’ applause.

Merkel outlined her concerns over the issue…

“Those who want to take part [in our society] must not only obey our laws, they must also master our language,” she said.

United Kingdom Prime Minister Cameron addressed the concerns of the UK on a human rights level when he was quoted as saying,

“Let’s properly judge these organisations: Do they believe in universal human rights – including for women and people of other faiths? Do they believe in equality of all before the law? Do they believe in democracy and the right of people to elect their own government? Do they encourage integration or separatism?

“These are the sorts of questions we need to ask. Fail these tests and the presumption should be not to engage with organisations,” he added.”

Unfortunately, the seemingly greater outcry within the UK came from members within government itself. Members felt that he was perhaps grandstanding in the wake of an English Defense League protest in his region. Members of the liberal Labour Party felt he was out of line but that didn’t stop Cameron from making some more valid points…

“In the speech, Mr Cameron drew a clear distinction between Islam the religion and what he described as “Islamist extremism” – a political ideology he said attracted people who feel “rootless” within their own countries.“We need to be clear: Islamist extremism and Islam are not the same thing,” he said…

“Freedom of speech. Freedom of worship. Democracy. The rule of law. Equal rights, regardless of race, sex or sexuality.

“It says to its citizens: This is what defines us as a society. To belong here is to believe these things.”

He said under the “doctrine of state multiculturalism”, different cultures have been encouraged to live separate lives…

We have failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong. We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run counter to our values.”

Perhaps the wisest statement about the failures of multiculturalism can be attributed to French President Nicolas Sarkozy…

“It’s a failure,” Sarkozy said of multiculturalism. “The truth is that, in all our democracies, we’ve been too concerned about the identity of the new arrivals and not enough about the identity of the country receiving them.”

This comes just a few days ago as the French leader spoke out about the efforts of France to provide a tolerant and welcoming society to a culture that does not seek to meld into the host country. Critics say that France never gave it a fair shot but that isn’t accurate. A few years ago, France was embroiled in a controversy about burkas in public, particularly in passport photos.

“This raises the issue of Islam and our Muslim compatriots,” he said. “Our Muslim compatriots should be able to live and practice their religion like anyone else … but it can only be a French Islam and not just an Islam in France.”

Meanwhile, here in America, we are embarking on our own path of multiculturalism. We are aiding in the promotion of CAIR and ISNA and their agendas. The liberal left still want to accept every word that comes from these groups or even individuals as though they would never tell a lie. Really? More than one part of the Qur’an teaches of the value of lying if the person doing it purports to attempt a lethal strike from within the enemies friendship. The question that the left wants to divide the issue on is “Well, how do we know which ones are bad? We can’t treat them all like they’re bad because we have a the first amendment guaranteeing Freedom Of Speech and Freedom Of Religion” Uh, yeah we have protections guaranteeing those freedoms… as well as another right, the right to life. Life is what the teachings of the Qur’an seem to want to take away from those non-believers.

When it becomes clear that a certain people or a group are using the protections of the Constitution against us and our freedoms, then we must examine the group more carefully. We can’t just take a stance that they get a blank canvas until they paint themselves into a terrorist’s cave. We must insist upon investigating these groups thoroughly. We must also insist that the concept of a melting pot is upheld because after all, we are America and after 234 years we have our own culture and either individual cultures start folding into the mix or they become a group worth suspicion.

Even inasmuch, we have seen how radical Islamists will assimilate to the lifestyles and customs in America. Islam is adamantly against consumption of alcohol and womanizing is frowned upon at best, the 19 hijackers aboard the ill-fate planes on September 11 were instructed to act fully like Americans…. consume alcohol, go to clubs/ bars, and to party with women so as to not raise suspicions. Hmmm, well if we follow the ideals outlined in Islamic teaching then these people would stand out as bad muslims, wouldn’t they?

So, how do we know who we can trust and where do we draw the line? Great question… let’s see what our government has done to demonstrate that trust of muslims so far. This from Fox News

“The Congressional Muslim Staff Association (CMSA) has held weekly Friday Jummah prayers for more than a decade, and guest preachers are often invited to lead the service. The group held prayers informally for about eight years before gaining official status in 2006 under the sponsorship of Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., one of two Muslims currently serving in Congress. The second Muslim congressman, Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., joined as co-sponsor after he was elected in 2008. 

Among those who FoxNews.com determined have attended the prayer services during the Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama administrations are:

Anwar al-Awlaki, the notorious Al Qaeda cleric believed to be hiding in Yemen and the lone American on the U.S. government’s capture or kill list, who conducted a prayer service on Capitol Hill shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.  

Randall “Ismail” Royer, a former communications associate for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who confessed in 2004 to receiving jihadist training in Pakistan. He is serving a 20-year prison term.

Anwar Hajjaj, former president of Taibah International Aid Association, which was designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and U.N. in 2004.

Esam Omeish, the former president of the Muslim American Society, who was forced to resign from the Virginia Commission on Immigration in 2007 after calling for “the jihad way,” among other remarks.

Salam Al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, who was forced to step down from a national terrorism committee post in 1999 for pro-terrorist comments.

Nihad Awad, CAIR executive director, who attended a Hamas meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 that was wiretapped by the FBI.

Johari Abdul Malik, Dar al-Hijrah imam, who made statements in support of convicted and suspected terrorists who attended his mosque.

Tariq Ramadan, a Muslim scholar banned from the U.S. for six years beginning in 2004 for his alleged ties and donations to terror groups. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lifted Ramadan’s ban in January.  

—  Abdulaziz Othman Al-Twaijri, the head of a division of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, considered a foreign agent by the U.S.

The Fox News report goes on,

“The most notorious of the lot is al-Awlaki, who is seen leading the prayer service on Capitol Hill in video footage included in “MUHAMMAD: Life of a Prophet,” a documentary that aired on PBS in 2002. 

In the footage, Jameel Johnson, Rep. Gregory Meeks’ former chief of staff and founder and former president of CMSA, is seen sitting next to Randall “Ismail” Royer, a former communications associate for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) who is now serving a 20-year sentence after pleading guilty in 2004 to helping jihadists from Virginia gain access to a terrorist training camp in Pakistan. That camp was run by Lashkar-e-Taiba, which was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in December 2001. One year before Royer was filmed attending the Awlaki prayer service, he attended jihad training camps in Pakistan, documents show.

Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR, can also be seen at the Awlaki prayer session. Awad has spoken out in support of Hamas and attended a 1993 Hamas meeting in Philadelphia that was wiretapped by the FBI, according to public record and court documents from the Holy Land Foundation trial. CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial.

Last year, the FBI severed ties with CAIR due to evidence of the group’s ties to networks supporting Hamas, which the State Department has designated as a terrorist group, according to documents obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, a watchdog group.

“The FBI has had to limit its formal contact with CAIR field offices until certain issues are addressed by CAIR’s national headquarters,” FBI spokesman John Miller told FoxNews.com last year. “CAIR’s leadership is aware of this. Beyond that, we have no further comment.”

Ibrahim Hooper, CAIR’s national communications director, also appears to have attended the Awlaki prayer service.

When asked by FoxNews.com if he had attended the service on Capitol Hill, Hooper said:

“Do you realize that the prayer services are open to the public, staffers, we have no say in who offers the prayer — or are you just trying to smear Muslims?”

When asked who chooses who offers the prayer, Hooper said, “You’d have to ask the staffers.”

When asked if he is in the video of the service or had attended any service on Capitol Hill led by Awlaki, Hooper said, “I don’t even remember. I don’t have a real big interest in furthering Fox News’ anti-Muslim agenda, but thanks for calling.”

Sources told FoxNews.com that CMSA is comprised mostly of young Hill staffers who, for the most part, do not play a role in bringing in speakers; they say organizations like CAIR have a heavy hand in selecting and bringing in outside guests.”

Well, here we have Ibrahim Hooper at a prayer meeting associating with known terrorists and he will not address the fact that he was there. He will not distance himself from Awlaki or any of the known terrorist organizations and yet the liberal left would have us believe that we can trust CAIR because why?… They seem nice? They seem like they like me? They don’t look like radicals? And there would be no other reason to think that CAIR would have any agenda of gaining an inside track into the political landscape of America, is there? Yes, there have been other attempts by the self-proclaimed moderate voice of trust for muslims to try and infiltrate our government. From an article in 2009 by the excellent blog, Bunkerville…

“The Muslim activist organization CAIR was attempting to plant Muslim interns in the offices of congressmen who are on committees affecting US national security, a CAIR memo dated 13 January 2007 reveals.

The CAIR memo says, in part:“We will focus on influencing congressmen responsible for policy that directly impacts the American Muslim community. (For example, the judiciary, intelligence, and homeland security committees.) We will develop national initiatives such as a lobby day and placing Muslim interns in Congressional offices.”

They continue on with an appointment to the White House under President Obama…

“President Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, another Czar, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.

Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was “oversimplified” and the majority of women around the world associate it with “gender justice”…

During this week’s broadcast, she described her White House role as “to convey… to the President and other public officials what it is Muslims want.”

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.

The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world.

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular “man-made law” and the West’s “lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism”.

They called for Sharia Law to be “the source of legislation” and said that women should not be “permitted to hold position of leadership in government”.

Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that “promiscuity” and the “breakdown of traditional values” were what Muslims admired least about the West.”

Do I have the answer to how we differentiate the radicals from the moderates? NO, I don’t… but when it seems like anyone wants to try to get an answer from the so-called moderates, we can’t get an answer either.

I would say that it’s not for us to answer that question… it’s up to the moderate muslims to decide how best to reclaim their religion of peace from the harbinger’s of hate.

  2. Sharon Mallia says:

    The problem that you display, along with others who join with you, is that you paint in broad strokes and justify it. Not all muslims are extreme, far from it, and those that are not should not be lumped in with those that are. And from whence do you extrapolate about liberals that all, if even any, choose to believe the word of persons who wish to harm us? Your bias shows so plainly that you make yourself not credible.
    As to the Tea Party, that it wishes to harm americans has become clear. Look what is going on in Wisconsin, Ohio, etc. How do you justify that?

    • Where to start…? Somehow, you attempt to tie mulitple ideas together and I’m not sure why you came to this blog if you don’t agree with it. It’s not as if you will change anything by your rant about this post. You really lost any sense of sticking to the issue of multiculturalism when you jumped on the union issues and the Tea Party… you are all over the place, Sharon… get a grip of yourself before you come to pieces. I do enjoy your use of big words like extrapolate… thank goodness for dictionaries and thesauruses so that you can sound smarter, huh? I thought most people from Texas were smart but I guess you are there to provide the balance. Before you jump on the, “Why the nastiness?!?” bandwagon, you came to my blog and couldn’t help but stumble all over yourself with your disjointed thoughts and I am having fun at your expense.

      The problem that I display? The problem that I have displayed is with the blatant whitewashing of the entire Islamic faith by liberal media, liberal government officials, and liberal agendas supported by them that has brought great damage to much of Europe. I then went on to share my concerns that America is in the process of experiencing the same harm as Europe in great part due to the liberal bias here at home. I make clear that there is a radical element to the Islamic faith and if you read my other post here as well as the 17 follow up comments, you will gain insight into where I do make distinguishing differences between so-called moderates and radicals.

      You obviously are living in a world void of reality if you think that multiculturalism can work… or you are too blinded by your ideology to understand what the difference is between multiculturalism and what the American “melting pot” concept really means. In either case, you need to come to terms with that any culture who comes to America must fold into the mix and not attempt to stand separate from the rest, otherwise it is not going to exist peacefully with the rest of America. To live in a state of denial about what multiculturalism is or means is to be a part of the coming problem in America. I suggest you read this and this, then consider what it means to allow separate ideas to come in without accepting the ways of America. Every other immigrant group that has come to America has assimilated except the muslims. You need to consider what you are saying and what you are backing… broaden your knowledge and you will see the difference. Or stay the same and live with rose colored glasses on and let Americans who love their country fight for your safety. The choice is yours but I suspect the choice that you will make is to sit back and let others fight for you.

      As for me not being credible, I suggest that you demonstrate a far greater level of narrow-mindedness than I and that would affect your credibility negatively to a much greater extent.

      I love how you cast stones from your perspective without any bearing of truth or reality either. Take for example, your statement, “As to the Tea Party, that it wishes to harm americans has become clear. Look what is going on in Wisconsin, Ohio, etc.” From what I see, that is not the Tea Party standing up to the unions who are killing the budgets in states, it is the citizens of the states. You have a clear bias there yourself, Sharon and it exposes you for what you are… ignorant to truth, blinded by liberal ideology. What you fail to grasp is that the bill presented in Wisconsin is not a union busting bill as your media wants you to believe. In fact, the collective bargaining that the bill seeks to limit is not a total removal of collective bargaining rights but merely limiting one part of the request covered in collective bargaining on behalf of the teachers. You also should understand that this is an issue related to public sector unions which means that the union is holding the people hostage for the sake of gaining more money from the public. The results of this bill have nothing to do with collective bargaining for private sector unions where the workers are the ones who help create the revenues or profits that the corporations make and so there is a clear difference.

      By the way, the damage done by the Tea Party? It’s funny that you mention that today because the Tea Party organized a rally today in Madison to clean up the damage and mess left behind by your beloved union cretins who left damage that is estimated to be in the millions of dollars range… nice job by a bunch of real America-loving thugs in the union. Whereas the Tea Party, who accept civic responsibility(something that the public sector unions never got the message on) are spending their time off to clean up and demonstrate what it really means to love America.

      A classy group you stand with, Sharon, those unions… a classy group.
