Please tell us what you think about this.
Targeting Muslims is very wrong and unfortunately radical Islam puts tremendous pressure on their entire religion. We did intern Japanese unfairly during World War II and we didn’t intern Germans. We don’t want that same attitude to pervade US thought. Targeting is wrong, but the reality is ISIS can create passports, they do want to exploit the refugee program, and ISIS isn’t the only Islamic group that wants to kill us. Also, Islam has a potentially dangerous political component – sharia.
It isn’t only ISIS, it’s all of the Islamic jihadists who want to establish a caliphate.
Another problem is some Islamic organizations are tied to terrorist organizations.
We must look at the dangers and discuss them honestly.
What makes Islam different is that about 5% to 20% of Muslims are radical and want sharia law to govern the earth, at least that’s the case according to Rep. Loretta Sanchez, a Democrat congresswoman and Senate hopeful.
That is about 48 million to 320 million Muslims who are radical, if she is correct. That’s a lot of people. The CIA told Newt Gingrich in 2001 that it was about 5%.
Rep. Sanchez said Muslims seeking a caliphate are willing to use terrorism and violence to impose their views on the Western world.
Sanchez serves on the Committee on Homeland Security and the Committee on Armed Services. It is courageous of her to say that given the fact she is a Democrat.
Pew put this next poll out which somewhat bears out what she said – it depends on the country. I’d love to know who these people are who ‘don’t know.’
The Conservative think tank, The Center for Security Policy, polled 600 US Muslims and found that 51% of them believe Muslims should have the choice of being governed by Sharia; more than a quarter believed “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed”; and 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.
Most organizations on the left will say 1% or fewer are radical.
Then we have some who believe our president knows that the organizations in this country with the loudest voices on behalf of Muslims are terror-linked.
Former FBI Counter terrorism Agent John Guandolo was interviewed by radio host Vince Coakley on his North Carolina talk radio program this week. Guandolo has often brought up the Holy Land Foundation trial which presented irrefutable evidence that organizations like CAIR are arms of terrorist organizations. Eric Holder squashed it and CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator.
Guandolo says Obama and his minions know these organizations are terror-tied but supports them anyway. He sees the administration as treasonous.
“I think he knows, I think the people in charge know and either this is the dumbest, most incompetent group of people ever to be assembled or there’s an intentionality here about it and they know.”
“And that means there’s treason going on. And I think we need to start looking legally at what the implications of this are, because as you know, I believe it is treason. I believe this is absolute treason, this is directly aiding and abetting enemies of the United States, directly using the color of law of the Attorney General’s office to support a Muslim Brotherhood group, or certainly at minimum, although they are a Muslim Brotherhood group, a group directly aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood and against the United States.
Keith Ellison and André Carson, our two Muslim congressmen, have never acknowledged that sharia is incompatible with the Constitution, a point Guandolo makes in the audio below.
His belief is that 100 percent of Sharia Law mandates jihad until the world is under Sharia Law, period. There’s no version of Islam that doesn’t require that.
Guandolo wants to know why we only talk about ISIS. All of these theocratic fascists want the same thing.
Maajid Nowaz is a former and reformed Islamic terrorist and current head of the Quillam Foundation, which is considered controversial by the left. This video is worth watching. One of the points he makes is that when you don’t call it what it is – radical Islam – that’s when people start to condemn the whole religion.
There is no question that we have people in our government who have dangerous views about Islam and sharia law. Take congresswoman Maxine Waters who told the Islamic Society of Orange County that sharia is compatible with the US Constitution when it clearly is not.
