Obama: stacking deck with Islamists?
Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), has posted a heavily-linked article at Exclusive: Obama Administration Stacking the Deck with Islamists. You may have heard him speak on various TV cable news stations. For purposes of appreciation, it is important to respect that many who follow "spiritual" Islam are working to reform Islam. We non-Muslims can remember reading of our own Reformation and the work of Martin Luther. Some Muslims in America want our representative republic just as we do with the separation of church and state. During the run-up to the presidential election in 2008, some of us were asking just where does Mr. Obama stand when it comes to supporting the Islamists, Sharia Finance, Sharia Law for the United States, and other questions related to Mr. Obama's support of Islamist aims. "Islamists" tend to political Islam which aims at the changing of our government in ways we can hardly imagine, or don't want to imagine. In his article, Dr. Jasser clarifies once and for all that what we are facing with Islamists is the "ideology", in my terms, much like we square off in political ideological dust-ups, only the Islamists are far more serious and have far more long-term goals, in my view. Dr. Jasser speaks of a Muslim Resume book that is being used to get Islamist staffers hired in the Senate, House, and the White House. Can you imagine the furor if we had a Christian Resume book of any sort circulating the halls of Congress to ensure hiring? Without his objection, I wish to include just a few quotations from Dr. Jasser's article:
"Their resume book is all about influence for Islamists under the banner of "being Muslim." "My hope and prayer as an American and as a Muslim is that this administration, our President, seek candidates first on merit and then if some happen to be Muslim so be it. I may not agree with the ideology of the Obama administration, but from both sides of the aisle, we should be able to assume that no political leaders be advocates of Islamism since shar'ia law is incompatible with our Constitution. But to first choose from a booklet of resumes which are fed to them from Islamists is wrong any way you look at it." "After missing so many opportunities from the inauguration to Obama's speech in Ankara, it is time for the Obama administration to make it clear that advocates of political Islam will not find a welcome home in their administration. Rather their administration should make it a domestic and foreign policy litmus test that the ideology of all its staff, whether Muslim or not, be anti-Islamist - that is that all of its staff are advocates of liberty and freedom over the establishment of political Islam."Dr. Jasser's article is one to be read and all of the links followed and read. "Know the truth and the truth shall set you free." When we are given truth, we owe it to ourselves to check out the links. We have to know that Islamists are using every tool and American law they have available to advance their cause which is ultimately "world domination". You can see for yourself the goals they have achieved in Europe, throughout the EU. Read the works of Bat Ye'or, the author of Eurabia as well as Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide. And you can also read Steven Emerson's American Jihad, The Terrorists Living Among Us. That will open a few eyes for folks in Texas and Virginia. But enough said... A non-Muslim friend once suggested that the reform of Islam must come through the women. Another article might shed some light on that subject: Exclusive: The Plight of Women under Islamists: Time for Muslims to Shed the Denial. In the Qu'ran, Muslims are directed not to befriend Christians or Jews. But earlier-on in that same Qu'ran, Muslims are told that Christians and Jews are people of "the book" to be respected and treated fairly. A loose paraphrase. Islamists follow the first which stresses using any means to advance their goal.
