A US Muslim male in the company of his wife dressed in this fashion is not a “moderate Muslim” but, instead, someone to be watched quite carefully.
I first wrote about the myth of the so-called “moderate Muslim” here, when it was revealed by the Center For Security Policy that “of 600 Muslims living in the United States, significant minorities embrace supremacist notions that could pose a threat to America’s security and its constitutional form of government.”
But wait; those “moderate American Muslims” you’re told are good and tolerant people — and are in your community?
According to the just-released survey of Muslims, a majority (51%) agreed that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.” When that question was put to the broader U.S. population, the overwhelming majority held that shariah should not displace the U.S. Constitution (86% to 2%).
More than half (51%) of U.S. Muslims polled also believe either that they should have the choice of American or shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39% of those polled said that Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts.
Two more very important paragraphs from my first blogpost about the myth of the “moderate Muslim in America:
Even more troubling, is the fact that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed that, “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.”
Understand this, however:
Nearly one-fifth of Muslim respondents said that the use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make shariah the law of the land in this country.
Read that again. Violence is justified is justified to ensure shariah law.
So essentially, as WND.com wrote,
Poll: Most U.S. Muslims would trade Constitution for Shariah
‘Quran should be highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion’
by Leo Hohmann
Ben Carson’s comment that he would not support a Shariah-compliant Muslim for president because Islamic law is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution led to the former brain surgeon’s roasting among media talkers and politicians of all stripes.
He has been excoriated as “anti-Muslim,” “bigoted,” even “anti-American” and unfit for office.
With the exception, as I wrote here, is that Dr Carson merely states the truth because, as indicated repeatedly, Muslims in the US embrace Shariah Law over our own US Constitution and Bill of Rights. Further, where does the Muslim concept of “taqiyah” enter into the equation? If you are unfamiliar with that term, you’d best click on the link.
Further, Leftists embrace CAIR as they embrace the ACLU. Except that the ACLU doesn’t immediately want to kill you for religious reasons — say, if you’re a Christian.. Yet.
This is important because Omar Ahmad, one founder of CAIR — and CAIR makes no bones about its representation of Muslims in the United States of America — has said, in “a conference hall packed with California Muslims in July 1998 that Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Quran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.” ”
CAIR denied Ahmad made the statement and said the newspaper that printed his statement retracted it, but that was proven false. In other words, Ahmad told the truth and CAIR lied.
This is another telling paragraph itself.
Ihsan Bagby of CAIR’s Washington office has said that Muslims “can never be full citizens of this country,” referring to the United States, “because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country,” Pipes reported in his 2006 article, “CAIR Islamists Fooling the Government.”
Islam can be conflictive in its statements, but that is dependent upon its goals at the time of the statement. There is a general Muslim word called “taqiyah” representing the notion in Islam that Muslims should never tell the truth to infidels. You and me, Western Civilization, those not believing in Islam, we are the infidels. The unclean. The ones who, like the Borg, need to be converted or killed. Muslims are not ashamed to tell you this and to make the concept clear. Google the word and check its meanings and various spellings.
Islam will frequently tell you what it is thinking and what it wants. Many Muslims in America — a majority as indicated above — believe that Shariah Law is supreme over any other form of American law. That is very clear. On the other hand, Muslims have a duty to lie to infidels.
Therefore, Ahmad through CAIR, is representative of what Muslims in the US believe. You can come to no other conclusion. CAIR is happy to make the linkage itself. They make it quite clear they wish to represent Muslims in America. As noted above, a poll already indicates that a majority of sampled Muslims hold that Shariah Law should be the law of the United States.
Yes, I am certain there are moderate Muslims in America.
Just as I believe there are Muslims in America who do not practice Islam as demanded by the most devout and true of followers of Mohammad and of the Koran.
Those are the “moderate Muslims” in America, who would not survive their practice in the Middle East. The Muslims who do not practice the Koran as strictly written. If you are a “moderate Muslim,” you’re not doing it right and you yourself may be in danger of an Islamic re-tuning.
If you point out a “moderate Muslim” to me, I’ll point out someone who cannot recite a minimum of five surahs and hasn’t been to a mosque in months or years, whose wife doesn’t wear hajib and who doesn’t not have a beard or fear Mohammad. Someone the rest of non-moderate Islam would consider too Westernized
Unless they are present in the US to blend in as they plot our infidel deaths.
There are the exceptions, you see.
Asked whether suicide bombing can be justified as a measure to defend Islam, 26 percent of American Muslims age eighteen to twenty-nine said yes. That is one quarter of the adult American Muslims under the age of thirty, and no matter how you count the number of Muslims in America (estimates vary from 2 million to 8 million), that is a lot of people.
