At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people.” West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression.
Hooah, Congressman West! Tell it like it is, my friend. The time for political correctness is O.V.E.R.!
GOOD NEWS! If any of you have been watching or listening to any of the major talk shows lately, certainly you’ve heard of Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser. He’s the president and founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), and in light of the recent Oklahoma law, the organization has issued a press release lauding the passage of the law. Here’s a portion of the press release:
“As Muslims dedicated to modernity, reform and our one law system in the west and in the United States, AIFD applauds the people of Oklahoma for passing State Question 755 and making “the legal precepts of other nations or cultures” off-limits to Oklahoma courts and specifically denying the use of Sharia Law.
The issue is simple. As Americans we believe in the Constitution, the Establishment Clause, and our one law system. SQ755 reaffirms the First amendment to the Constitution and prevents the Establishment or empowerment of a foreign legal system like the specific shariah legal systems implemented in many Muslim majority nations and in western shariah courts seen in places like Britain.
From a partial transcript, h/t Mediaite (I don’t know who did this transcript, but I tried to fix it as much as possible for spelling and punctuation errors.):
Barbara Walters: It’s why I sometimes have trouble here and don’t give my opinion because I’m also with ABC news. If you are a commentator and you’re giving opinions, you’re in one category.
Sherri Sheppard: Is that a pundit?
Walters: You can call it a pundit. If you are giving the news straight, you’re not supposed to give your opinions. Now, that’s changed so much. We’re in a whole other time now. Everybody has an opinion. If you don’t make more noise or scream louder or so on, you don’t get the ratings. So it is a funny blurred line. They said he’s a journalist, he’s a correspondent, and he’s not supposed to give opinions. But when he goes on another cable show like Fox and does it — so it’s a very blurry line. In the meantime, we hope he’ll come on with us and, if nothing else, give Joy and Whoopi 10%.
The story of NPR’s firing of Juan is well known, as is Megyn Kelly’s take-down of CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper. CAIR and Ibrahim Hooper are just the same kind of race-pimps that we see in Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, NAACP and the like. The more they can keep their people down and dependent, the more they stand to profit. Dr. Jasser and men like Thomas Sowell are so far past the victimhood that is so pervasive in groups like the NAACP and CAIR. It’s refreshing to hear this discourse.
Only good things can come of this now-open dialogue. We cannot assuage our fears of Muslims in traditional garb on airplanes until Muslims themselves begin to admit it’s a Muslim problem and it has to be addressed in their community – fighting the extremists and destroying the Islamic theo-political ideology.
Juan came on O’Reilly’s show tonight to give a rundown of what happened between he and NPR. God bless you, Juan, for not backing down. And thank you, Roger Ailes, for giving Juan a more lucrative contract, for an extended period of time, and for a more expanded role on Fox News.
Liberal media loses BIG time, because, as always, regardless of politics, it is CONSERVATIVES who come to the defense of others in free speech matters (see Imus, et. al). NPR, you are shameless in the way you treated Juan. Seriously, it’s now between Juan and his “psychiatrist?” Really?REALLY??
