Islamists in US need course in American politics

Islamists in US need course in American politics and need to put the "crying towel" away and stop looking for a lawsuit at every corner. Practitioners of Political Islam in the good, old "US of A" need an initiation into the rough and tumble of American politics. CAIR - perhaps an off-shoot of Hamas, and other Islamists, off-shoots of the Muslim Brotherhood, need a lesson in "ya can't have it both ways." We have the separation of church and state here, buddy. That means, ya can, as an off-shoot of Hamas, declare yourselves a "political" entity OR you can declare yourself a "non-political entity". Cain't have it both ways, yo! Today, we have those of a "so-called" religion looking for a name. Names not to offend: Islamists, radical Islam, violent Islamist extremists, radical Islamist fundamentalists. All somehow skirting with the "fact" that these are the "bad" Muslims with no offense directed at the "good" Muslims. Islam with its many members and all its aberrations - sects, cults - are assumed by most Westerners to be practitioners of a "religion." But from what I have been reading, Islam in and of itself is not a religion in the classical Western sense, as Christianity has evolved. Islam is much more: it is woven into the very fabric of Islamic life with rules and regulations for everything from banking to beating your wife. CAIR is pushing to pass "hate speech" laws through Congress that would make even discussing Islam "hate speech." They were able to get a House Resolution, H. Res. 288 "passed" in 2005, condemning bigotry... which stresses Islam, the religion part? The Muslim Brotherhood gives us "political Islam" and even supplies us with a plan to bring about a world dominated by the Islamic Law - Sharia Law - of Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood is even banned in some Islamic countries - gasp - why? Because they and their front groups are a threat to the existing governmental order.
In Muslim Brotherhood belief, the Qur'an and Sunna constitute a perfect way of life and social and political organization that God has set out for man. Muslim Brotherhood The Muslim Brotherhood has been active in the US since the 1960s. Its goals have included propagating Islam and creating havens for Muslims in the US, and integrating Muslims. A main strategy has been dawah or Islamic renewal and outreach. In the 1960s, groups such as U.S. military personnel, prison inmates and African -Americans were specifically targeted for dawah. Muslim activists involved with the Muslim Brotherhood have started organizations in the US including the Muslim Students Association in 1963,[36] North American Islamic Trust in 1971, the Islamic Society of North America in 1981, the American Muslim Council in 1990, and the Muslim American Society in 1992, and the International Institute of Islamic Thought in the 1980s.[37]
And further from The Muslim Brotherhood "Project":
Point of Departure 7: To accept the principle of temporary cooperation between Islamic movements and nationalist movements in the broad sphere and on common ground such as the struggle against colonialism, preaching and the Jewish state, without however having to form alliances. This will require, on the other hand, limited contacts between certain leaders, on a case by case basis, as long as these contacts do not violate the [shari’a] law. Nevertheless, one must not give them allegiance or take them into confidence, bearing in mind that the Islamic movement must be the origin of the initiatives and orientations taken.
Now, does that sound "religious" in the Western sense of the word? No, so... Well, let's show no quarter. Initiate them into the political battles that make up American politics where politicians do not hide behind the robes or skirts of "religion" or cry foul when they - the politicians - are called out on their ideologies. And foot-washing stations: "religious" or hygiene? Would your employer hire you if you demanded time to pray five times on company time? We have to accommodate our employers, not the other way around. They are not in business to "serve" us. We work for them... Islamists CANNOT have it both ways in America. There is no "hate speech" in American politics. Political Islamists - welcome to our world! Check the "religious" part of Islam at the door...and don't hide behind it or a lawsuit when the heat gets turned up. Such is the "political" life in America. For those of us in the West, we must begin to see that Islam is not a "Sunday-go-to-meeting" kind of an "organization." Islam - as defined by various leadership - is a social, political, cultural construct that governs every single aspect of a person's life. We in the West treat Islamist front groups as "religious" at our peril. From my reading, there may indeed be a "religious" component of Islam whose practitioners are only looking for a "spiritual" component - to lift the soul and to "love thy neighbor as thyself." What I find in the Qur'an does not support the latter concept. We in the West must separate the "political" from the "spiritual" and realize that the savvy Islamists are growing strong on our freedoms which they see as our weaknesses. So, no "hate speech" protecting Islam. I don't know of any "hate speech" laws that "protect" Christian or Jewish folks. We also need to be informed, Stop the Project and Twenty-Year Plan: Islam Targets America. The latter has nothing "spiritual" about it; it is a down and dirty plan to overthrow the United States of America. Read the latter and see item 11, then take a look at Saudi Arabic Finances & Islam. Let's stop letting Islamist front groups get away with "crying" foul when we discuss an ideology that states as its goal to "dominate" the world and at the very least destroy our form of government. Just as a "Beach Girl" question, how can a Muslim swear an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States and be a Muslim? Oh, I forgot - there is that little thing about being able to lie to the infidels if it furthers the cause of Islam. Now, that sounds about as political as you can get... Political parties of Islam should come as no surprise as we have Fatah and Hamas. We have Wahhabism which Saudi is spreading throughout the US; we have the secular Sunnis and Shia - we just need to start looking at Islam as having distinct differences and deal with the separate parts in accordance with our "separation of church and state." Islamists function separately under the rubric of "Islam" yet they have distinct sects, cults, and political organizations. Who do you think are the folks killing each other in Iraq? Islamic factions - it's all about power, my friends. The Islamists have "planned" their work and they are "working" their plan - just like any business management plan or any planned political strategy... And what are we doing to defend ourselves in the face of this implemented strategy?

The rules don't apply to them. We don't want to offend the terrorists or force them into our way of life- so in a fit of political correctness we will let them do whatever they want and wonder how else we can excuse their violent behavior...
As far as separation- there is no such thing. The separation clause has been used to manipulate everything and make it more PC. The restriction is that we can not have a state sponsored religion, but they have already publicly stated that goal (along with others):

Falcon, I do think we need to "rough 'em" up a bit in the political area. Oh the belly-laughs if one of our presidential candidates cried, "Oh, mercy, Ms. Scarlet, they usin' hate speech on me...whine, whine."
