Islam's purpose in the United States
While this may seem like "old" news, we MUST keep the words of Omar M. Ahmad, the founder of CAIR, in front of us as we listen to CAIR spokesmen and others tout that CAIR and such groups are for the "civil rights" of Muslims within the United States. Taken from In defense of the Constitution:
On 14 June, 2003, The Tri-Valley Herald posted an article to its web site standing by the original article by reporter Ms. Lisa Gardiner wherein she quoted the following statement by Mr. Ahmad: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”Now, if that isn't a declaration to overthrow the US Constitution - which we seem to be doing quite well enough on our own, thank you very much - I don't know what is. The role of Islam within the United States of America is arguably by its leaders intent on overthrowing the government of the United States and plunging our nation and all non-Muslims into a state of dhimmitude or servitude to Islam by replacing our US Constitution with Sharia Law. They do not want to convert all of us to Islam because that would be pointless. Much more is to be gained by taxing us if we practice a religion in contrast to bowing to a theocracy. Either way, we would fall under the yoke of intolerance we can only imagine. But Islam has its own internal problems regarding who are the true Muslims and who are the apostates in the battle of succession starting way back when in the late 600s after Mohammud (pbuh) died and went to his eternal reward. Islam is now and always has been a political ideology cloaked in robes and rituals like honor killings and subjugating women - nothing has changed except perhaps some Muslims in America find a true freedom here that does not exist in many Muslim nations. For more mind-numbing information take a look at Judith Miller's book, God has Ninety-nine Names. Here you will learn what I always suspected, that Mohammud built a better mouse-trap by adopting the term "Allah" for the One God when in the early days of Mecca, the folks there had about 300 gods, Allah being only one of these. It's all long, tedious to study, and mind-numbing but the difference between Sunnis and Shites put simply is the line of succession. Who are the true or real Muslims and who are the apostates... I'm fine with them sorting that out in the Middle East but not in Europe or in the United States. When we hear CAIR and its members speak of a peaceful religion, remember Omar M. Ahmad's words. Remember as well that any groups that support Hamas and Hezbollah are not "our" friends. Let me repeat Ahmad's words:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”In the approved for English speakers Qur'an that I have, the author, Abdullah Yusuf Ali, states clearly "I want to make English itself an Islamic language, if such a person as I can do it." (preface to first edition, page ii) I really don't mind the Quakers and the Mormons or the Baptists and Lutherans practicing their religion peacefully next to me. I mind when they want to over-throw my government as set-forth in our United States Constitution. And frankly, I appreciate Omar M. Ahmad being so forth-right. It is always better to know up-front what a person's goals are the better to head them off... For myself, I simply do not see how Islam is compatible with our form of government which is why I never thought we should have bombed the Serbs or continued to support with the lives of our young men and women, nations whose citizens voted to live under Sharia Law which in and of itself is foreign to our liberties and equality. And to the folks who say that a "civil war" exists in Iraq, they must see that Islam is not a religion in our definition of the term but a political ideology around which a civil war - not a holy war - is being fought to determine which of the "successor" factions will win power. How do you have "power sharing" when the fissures are so deep that the Western mind cannot comprehend them; that's what I mean by a "better mouse-trap" - Mohammud joined politics and religion and power all into one tight package. Why? To increase his followers during this lifetime, many of whom saw the pillage and plunder and wanted to get into the action... See Judith Miller's book, God has Ninety-nine Names. One further quotation about Judith Miller's book: "A country-by-country account of the struggles for power and identity in the Middle East travels from the terrorist headquarters of Hezbollah in Lebanon to the royal palace in Amman to an Israeli interrogation cell." My eyes glaze over and my mind goes numb as I read of the internal wars for power going on within Islam. We don't need those wars here in the United States... We may be providing sanctuary for peaceful, law-abiding folks who practice Islam here in the United States but the power struggle within Islam is spreading and it is taking root among us...
