There was a post trending on Facebook yesterday. A commentary by a British Muslim Cleric, Anjem Choudary, in the USA Today, defending the Paris terrorist attack on the publication, Charlie Hebdo.
Why would the USA Today give a voice to a Muslim cleric who thinks the Paris attack was well deserved? Why does the US press always give front page coverage to those who have done harm, intend to do harm, or support those who do harm? Can they not grasp the concept that giving a voice to our enemies gives them the power they believe they deserve? Does the media understand that when they give our enemies a voice it allows them to draw in more support from the very people who want us dead?
In the opinion piece Choudry claimed that people “know the consequences” of speaking ill of Mohammad. He further confirmed what we, in the public, have known all along, but our leadership refuses to acknowledge, “Contrary to popular misconception, Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone. Therefore Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression, as their speech and actions are determined by divine revelation and not based on people’s desires.”
What is a Muslim cleric? The dictionary defines it as a “ulema,” meaning, “Muslim scholars trained in Islam and Islamic law.”
So now, directly from the mouth of a Muslim scholar trained in Islam and Islamic law, Choudry has confirmed that Islam is NOT a religion of peace. He has confirmed that believers in Islam are required to do what the Quran demands they do…..protect Muhammad at any cost. This includes the beheading and murder of all those who refuse to convert. It means they feel justified in the murder of innocents, even children, who refuse to convert to Islam. How can this be ignored by our leadership. How could it be stated any more clearly? It stands in total conflict to the dialog President Obama and other world leaders continue to push to their citizens. A continued, misguided belief that puts every individual of the world in dire danger. It is a philosophy and ideology that, no matter how much they deny it, will eventually be the death of us all!
When a leader of the Muslim community stands up and defends the murder of innocents in the name of Islam, we all need to listen, take him at his word, and respond appropriately. Stop the madness. Call a spade a spade and take action to stop the ideaology….the religion of hate and murder…. within our own borders.
These leads to the obvious question as to why, in times of increased terrorist activity, that the Obama administration would welcome in a record number of Muslims. In a recent article by Investors.com it was written that the “Center for Immigration Studies reported between 2010 and 2013, the United States has imported more people from Muslim countries than Central America and Mexico combined.”
What if a portion of the current 300,000 new Muslim immigrants, decide to follow the cleric Choudry and decide to do whatever is necessary to defend Mohammad? How many of these immigrants are reading his opinion piece in the USA Today and as a result decide to ramp up efforts to destroy the infidels? With the number of Muslim immigrants increasing every year, we could be looking at far worse results than London and Paris combined. If these immigrants decided to band together, or even small groups decide to do what they can to further the Islamic directive, then we will be looking at car bombings, suicide bombings, and a slew of hostage taking, beheadings and just plain havoc here on U.S. soil.
Add insult to injury, the Obama Administration is increasing Muslim immigration visas and he has refused to enforce deportation laws. His recent illegal amnesty does not just apply to the “dreamers,” or those who are here getting an education and wanting to become a productive part of our society. It includes all those here illegally, including those who view us as infidels. As a result, anyone here supporting Islamic terrorists will now obtain documentation, driver’s licenses and work permits, and those here on visas are not tracked after their expire. They just integrate themselves into our society, overlooked and forgotten, and like the 19 terrorists who killed 3000 Americans on 9/11 are left alone to plot their revenge.
France is now suffering the consequences of their irresponsible, “politically correct” immigration policies. The population of Muslims in France has now reached 10% of its population with over 27% supporting the Islamic State. They have radicalism spreading throughout the country creating a situation that can not be turned back. If our leaders do not stand up and take note of the dramatic results of these “politically correct” immigration policies then we in the United States will soon be suffering the same consequences.
We ask ourselves why the Muslim population and the Muslim leaders have not taken a stand against the radical terrorist events that have been perpetrated by those within their own religion? In a conversation with a knowledgeable source regarding middle eastern relations, I was told,
“American Muslims are not standing up and screaming because they can’t. It is a philosophically impossible for them to fully reject… killing cartoonists who lampooned their Prophet because the Quran clearly states that the penalty for such things, is summary death. The Quran is the unalterable word of God, in, evidently, God’s home language, so there is no wiggle room about interpreting it. If it’s in the book, it is true.”
“Islam is antithetical to Western Democracy. The idea of a Caliphate is essential to Islam. A Caliphate requires submission of religion, commerce, politics, and everything else in your life to a single ruler. There is no role for opposition. There is no role for an individual to say, “Hang on a minute, something isn’t quite right about this,” because such a statement is, by definition, heresy. And heresy is punishable by death by the people who get to define heresy.”
Since our leaders refuse to take off their rose color glasses and SEE the real threat that is facing the people of the world, it is time for the people to stand up and say enough!! Contact your representative, Democrat, Republican or Independent, and let them know we want and NEED immigration reform and border control NOW, before it is too late!
