Today I want to look at a new toolkit for passing counter Islamophobia resolutions. This is the second time they have done this, the first time was in 2012. Their purpose is to get Muslims to visit with their local and state public officials. It tells them how to set up meetings, what to say, the size of groups that need to go, the things they want the legislators to do for them, etc. It is a sales kit to teach them how to sell their agenda to the legislators. This is a mass effort by the Muslim community to affect the laws in this country to favor Muslims.
Their spin is that there is Islamophobia in this country. They say that Muslims are being abused and mistreated and we need laws for the protection of Muslims. They are following the tactics of the Civil Rights Movement. Al Sharpton is invited to their ISNA conferences and they are listening to these civil rights leaders of the 60’s who successfully got legislation passed to protect the minority groups of blacks in America. These laws gave them superior rights. The minorities in America have more power than the majority. Muslims believe that if they can use the same tactics, it will give them an advantage in this country.
They have been caught them manipulating our legal system and courts. There is a legal principle called “comity,” which means to give accommodation. Our courts will give accommodation to foreign laws because we have trade agreements and adoption agreements with other nations. We sometimes have to give accommodation to foreign laws in our courts because we are dealing with issues with different countries. Muslims have learn how to use this to get Sharia Law into our court system. I believe there are 142 cases in 32 states where courts have given accommodation to Sharia Law.
There is an initiative called “American Laws For American Courts” designed to stop this. To date, only 10 states have passed this. Washington State has partially passed it for lower specialty courts.
This toolkit is trying to get 2 resolutions passed. They sound very benign on the surface. They take things in the direction they want to go. This is called the cultural jihad, which is the wearing down of our systems to make them more sympathetic and open toward Islam and its ways.
The first resolution is one that will recognize the contributions of Muslims in each state nationwide. The second resolution is to reaffirm the right of citizens to practice their faith within the law and free of government interference. This already is the law, but they want a statement about this applying to Muslims in particular.
On Page nine of this toolkit we find a sample resolution the states to pass. Here are part of what it says:
Whereas the state [State] has a proud history of sponsoring individual religious freedoms and is strengthened by diverse religious, political and cultural traditions of its residents, including residents who practice Islam…
They want to talk about the contributions of Muslims in this country. OK, let’s talk about that. What they want to talk about is that 15% of the African slaves that were brought here were Muslims.
Do you know that America’s first foreign ware was against Muslims. It was against eh Barbary Pirates in North Africa. When our trade ships went near North Africa these Muslim pirates would seize our ships and hold them for ransom. If the ransom wasn’t paid the crew was taken into slavery. This war want on for 20 years. We have a series on this war at http://www.fortressoffaith.org/blog/2014/12/29/barbary-pirate-war-part-1/.
Our second President, John Adams, paid the ransoms. It was bankrupting the national treasury. It was our third President, Thomas Jefferson, that did something about it. After he met with the Algerian Ambassador, who explained that the reason they do this, even though that US had shown no aggression against them, was because is was commanded by their religion. He said that their Prophet, Muhammad, had told them to make war with them that don’t believe in their god. He went on to say that they were to extort money from us.
When Thomas Jefferson became President, he created the Marin Corps for the express purpose of putting a stop to this. This is why the Marin Corps anthem says “from the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli.” Tripoli is in Libya, a Muslim country.
We also need to talk about the issue of slavery. How did these slaves first become slaves? They were captured by Muslims in Africa. They brought them to the coast and started an international slave trade. I believe that the brutal treatment of the black slaves by whites was caused by the brutal treatment of the white slaves from America and Europe by these African Muslims. Although is doesn’t make it right, I believe that it was a recompense. If they want to talk about the history we need to make sure that the whole truth of history is told.
They also want to make an issue of hate crimes in America. Again, we need to know the whole truth about the hate crime issue. I have been following the hate crimes statistics from the FBI for many years. There are 11 years of statistics available. Let me tell you what they are. If you add up all of the Christians that have been victims of hate crimes it works out to be about 10% of the total. With Muslims it works out to be only about 13% of the total. There is only 3% difference between Muslims and Christians who are victims of hate crimes. The real story is the hate crimes against Jews in this nation. We find that 77% of the religious hate crimes in America are against Jews. This shows who the real victims of hate crimes are in this country.
Who are those who are victimizing the Jews? Could it be the Muslims? I don’t know.
The reality is that the number of hate crimes against Muslims is small, especially when compared with the hate crimes against Jews.
We also need to ask who CAIR is. They are a front group of the Muslim Brotherhood. We know that the government knows this, the FBI has the documentation which proves it beyond all doubt. The Obama administration has refused to call that Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, even though our allies, like England and Egypt do. Even other Muslim countries refer to the MB as a terrorist organization. The United Arab Emirates have gone farther, they have designated CAIR as a terrorist organization. To this day, CAIR stands as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Fund Foundation trial. Many people were sent to jail for raising funds for terrorist groups. When Obama came to office they were getting ready to bring groups like CAIR into the trial, but he put a stop to it. They have not been prosecuted, but they are still on the list.
We will get into more on this subject tomorrow.
