This is beyond creeping sharia or stealth jihad, this is Islamic dawah. So much for the Establishment Clause. Three recent examples.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement relating to President Obama’s historic speech today in Cairo, Egypt:
“The President’s pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcement and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all of our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth.
“There are those who will continue to want to divide by fear – to pit our national security against our civil liberties – but that is a false choice. We have a solemn responsibility to protect our people while we also protect our principles.”
2) From Debbie Schlussel, Obama White House Video Promotes Islam, Recognizes “Northern Palestine” in Video to Muslim World:
FYI, instead of posting the Obama speech, front and center on the White House site, the Obama Administration posted this video of “Muslim Americans Serving in the U.S. Government.” It’s simply sickening. Do you ever see the White House producing and promoting pandering videos about Christians proudly serving in the U.S. government? Jews? Zoroastrians? Wiccans? Hari Krishnas? Clearly, the Obamaniks are promoting a certain religion.
And get the quotes from this video, made not for us Americans, but for the Muslims on the Arab Street in HD Technipander.
Lema Bashir, a Palestinian Muslim trial attorney for the voting rights section of the Civil Rights division in the Justice Department. (Well, now we know why Muslim voter fraud in Dearbornistan is allowed to continue.)
Bashir tells us her father was born in “Northern Palestine.” What the heck is “Northern Palestine”? There is no such thing in Gaza or the so-called “West Bank.” There’s only a Northern Israel, which is where her father was born, inside the Green Zone. Since the Obama administration left that in the video, they’re apparently letting us and the Muslim world know that they accept and buy into Palestinian claims that ALL of Israel is “Palestine.”
Then, there’s a revealing quote from Afeefa Syeed, a Muslim and Senior Advisor for Culture and Development with the Middle East and Asia Bureaus of USAID (the U.S. Agency for International Development). (Well, now we know why USAID money continues to go, courtesy of the American taxpayer, to Hezbollah and HAMAS.)
The ideals that we hold as American Muslims are not that different from what they–from what Muslims around the world also hold.
Yes, finally, they admit what I’ve been saying and what contradicts their propaganda–i.e., that Muslims in America are not moderate, are no more reasonable and civil and less violent and extreme than their co-religionists around the rest of the world. The ones in America want to see this country on its knees (and all Jews and Christians dead) just as badly as the Muslims around the world.
Like I said, this video wasn’t made for Americans. It was made as a message to Muslims everywhere else, to tell them,
America’s White House and its President agree with you on “Northern Palestine” and that all of Israel is “Palestine.” America’s President sides with the Muslim ideals around the world.
Wake the heck up, America!
3) From the Investigative Project on Terrorism, New booklet, “Being Muslim in America,” taps the wrong messengers:
With the United States battling Islamist extremists, making America’s case to Muslims around the world has never been more of a priority for policymakers. Unfortunately, the State Department continues to take a counterproductive approach: serving as a veritable infomercial promoting Islamist organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) while giving the back of the hand to the very anti-jihadist Muslims that Washington should be cultivating. The latest example is a State Department booklet issued in March titled “Being Muslim in America.”
Unfortunately, the substance of the booklet is so flawed that it could undermine the struggle against this form of radicalism. It perpetuates the mythology that American Muslims are united in the belief that law enforcement and the public are willing to flout innocent Muslims’ civil rights post-September 11…This is an extremely tendentious, even intellectually dishonest, description of September 11 and its aftermath.
Also omitted from the booklet is the fact that organizations like CAIR and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) were listed by the government as unindicted co-conspirators in the federal government’s prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) — in which the Justice Department won convictions of five former HLF officials for providing money to the terrorist organization Hamas. But from reading this passage in “Being Muslim in America,” one would get the impression that public concern about Islamist terror has no basis in reality and is merely the result of backward Americans’ “discrimination and resentment.”
No less disturbing is the fact that time and again, “Being Muslim in America” confers undeserved legitimacy on radical Islamist groups and individuals, while whitewashing radical groups.
And “Being Muslim in America” is not the only example of the messages of weakness that the State Department sends to the Muslim world.
No it is not. We could go on – Obama’s zakat promise, giving billions to countries that breed terror while blocking aid to allies, interviews and travel to Muslim countries, hiring Islamist apologists, etc. Just read many of our posts, then contact your elected officials.
