The myth of the “moderate Muslim” in America, Pt. II


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 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.

America is caught “flat-footed”

Putin And His AxeThat’s how any number of news organizations are quantifying the actions by Russia in Syria today.

And this is how respected Obama is by the Russians: the US received an entire one-hour warning by a Russian general who appeared out of thin air at our Baghdad embassy, stating that the strikes would be occurring, and decreed by demarche that we must pull our own troops and aircraft out of Syria.  Translation: we are Russia and we will do what we wish when we wish, and you stay the hell out of the way.

This is a stuttering clusterfuck of a moment for Mr Barack Hussein Obama who, just two days ago, shook hands with Vladimir Putin, convinced that he had saved the world and put America in her place once again.  Which he has.  The part about putting America “in her place.”

John Kerry spoke with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov in the Security Council of the UN a short time ago (today is Wednesday), and it is abundantly clear that Kerry is over his own personal head as well, since I noted that when initially speaking in the conference regarding “deconfliction,” Mr Kerry’s voice broke twice.

“I am confident Assad’s days are numbered,” Mr Obama said, if you recall.

And yet they are not.  Putin supports Assad and has, now, a rather clear and situational presence in Syria as their planes flew from local bases.  I found that information on the internet just now.  I cannot possibly imagine Obama didn’t know that and hadn’t made any plans or began contacting Russian sources.  Unless he hadn’t or didn’t.  First, you have to care about being a world power.

Sukhoi SU-34 Fullback

Russian Sukhoi SU-34.

Just how, by the way, did those Russian Sukhoi SU-34 Fullback fighter aircraft seem to slip so quietly and rapidly into Syria?  By a little Israeli trick: running them under much larger cargo aircraft in order to take on the radar signature of one large airframe.  Russia already has a naval presence in the port city of Tartus, Syria.

Our feckless occupant of the Spite House, mind you, will somehow attempt to push this off on either poor intelligence or some type of US military mixup.  I submit, this couldn’t be farther from the truth.  I know many military persons and they are good, honest, loyal people who only want to see the United States succeed and keep its position of power and respect in the world.  They also know that Obama is frequently in contravention of US success or supremacy.

The foreign policy of the United States currently involves puppy dogs, unicorns and fairies.  The policy is that there is no policy save that of bowing, appeasement, empty words backed by no actions and “hope.”

And one stuttering, unconfident SofS named John Kerry.

This is what happens when you deal, in ignorance, with despots and Muslims.

“He’s (Putin) bidding for dominance in the Middle East.”  – John Bolton

“Power is passing in the Middle East from America’s weak hands.” – John Bolton.

“Russians knew from the get-go that they weren’t going to be targeting ISIS.” – John Bolton

“He (Putin) sees no American pushback.” – John Bolton

In one day, the world seemingly transitioned from the United States of America to Russia.

Russia has just swindled us in Syria.  For “deconfliction” so that the Russians don’t shoot down our own aircraft.

Because they warned us, after all.



Russia launches airstrikes inside Syria

Russian Jet FighterFox News is indicating that Russia has now launched airstrikes with Russian aircraft inside Syria.

Initial reports also indicate, according to sources, that Russian strikes are aimed where there is evidently no ISIS presence.  At first blush, this seems to indicate that Russia is doing Assad’s job for him, by attacking anti-Assad forces.

UPDATE: Fox indicates Russia is in fact using its aircraft to strike anti-Assad forces in Syria, not ISIS forces.

Further, Russia has demanded that the US leave the Syrian airspace.  So far, it has refused.

Once again, by Obama’s creation of a vacuum in all of the Middle East, the vacuum will be filled and it is becoming blindingly clear that Vladimir Putin is filling that vacuum.

Donald Trump has weighed in, as I watch this play out on Fox, and has asked: is Assad really worse than the rest of the players in Syria, absent ISIS?  He thinks not.  I’m thinking so too.

What is Mr Obama going to do in response?  Because in politics and on the world stage, you respond to words with words, and actions with actions.  With the exception that Mr Obama’s actions — when he has actually acted instead of threatening a “red line,” have solved nothing.  Further, Obama “leads from behind,” a ridiculous stance for a world power in any event.  Leading from behind simply means you are not a world power.

John Kerry is currently at the UN stating that the US is going to continue attempting to “remove” Assad, whatever “remove” means in the world of Obama.  Obama thinks you can “talk” and “negotiate” sense to the Middle East and to Muslims.  You cannot.

Kerry called on all governments to broker, through the UN, a negotiation to remove Assad.  Kerry just legitimized Russia’s presence once again the Middle East and in Syria, as he acknowledges the presence and the “need” for Russia’s actions.

Russia is there to strengthen the Assad regime, I believe.

These are Big Boy moves by Putin, knowing again that Obama is far out of his league in terms of being capable of dealing with these issues.  These are very serious moves and Putin has ratcheted up the tension and the stakes.

Worse yet, the US is saying Russia has a reason to be launching these strikes, to be present in the Middle East.  The US just legitimized this move.

I shake my head.

Putin is larfing his ass off at this point.



To Donald Trump: shave your head

Trump HairDonald J. Trump, if you are serious about your positions, about your running for president, then I would suggest this to you sir.

Shave your head.

People think that you are so entrenched in your monomanicalism that you can’t see the forest for the trees.

I can’t tell you how many people would take you more seriously if you would eschew your hair fixation — which is clearly shellacked within an inch of its life every day — and simply shave your head.  It truly is that simple.

Yes, Mr Trump, it’s your actual hair.  I agree.  We all agree.  But it’s curved and coiffed and shellacked to within an inch of its remaining life every day.

If you’re “real” and if you don’t care, and if you are sincere in your efforts to completely revamp the United States of America, your hair is a distraction.

To you.  As it certainly is to many others.  It has become its own story.  But you could be in charge of your own story.  If you but take control.

So I throw down this challenge.

Shave your head.

But you won’t.  Because your self-image is more important than your true and honest running for president.

Call me out, Mr Trump.  Make me a dirty rotten liar.

I have less hair than you do.



I marched with MLK, but I can’t protect myself

Demorat cities have been experiencing exponential gun violence not in keeping with the rest of the nation.  Why might that be?

That’s right, because good citizens who deserve to defend themselves against criminals, mostly black — and potential victims who are mostly black — cannot.

You want racism?

Live in a city ruled by Demorats.
