Islam in the United States

Political correctness is what dictates conduct in the highest echelons of leadership in the United States.
American-born Taliban fighter John Walker Lindh

The activity of Islamic institutions in the United States often focuses on Israel, and more than a few of these institutions hold yearly events called “Israeli Apartheid Week.” Surprisingly, there are Jewish students and staff members, and even Israelis, who take part in this anti-Israeli activity, which are obviously driven by clear anti-semitic motives. MK Jamal Zahalka from the Israeli Arab National Democratic Assembly party is a star from this movement who is in great demand.  The Jewish students are intimidated, and taking a pro-Israeli stance makes them a target for criticism and even violence by those who wish to portray Israel as an apartheid state. The Jewish students are also afraid to express pro-Israeli positions in class, because there are lecturers, and not only from Arab or Muslim countries, who might lower the grades of a student who dares to challenge the statement that Israel is an apartheid state.

The picture in the United States is disturbing: in my opinion the United States is treading in Europe’s footsteps of 15 years ago: what one sees today in the United States we saw in Europe 15 years ago and if America doesn’t wake up it will find itself in another 15 years in the situation that Europe is in today.

  1. It is easy to refute "islamism"/extremism/taliban/al-qaida and similar groups, if everyone would aquaint themselves with this:

    10++ years research on Islam. http://paradoxuncreated.com/Blog/wordpress/?page_id=62

    Peace Be With You.

  2. From the link below: "Another booklet that is distributed in mosques of the United States is entitled “What should you do if you are arrested or investigated by the racist, fascist and criminal police, or the racist, fascist FBI?” This guide book is written – according to what is printed on the title page – by Dr. al-Hajj Idris Muhammad, and is issued by the publishing house “al-Amin” in New York. In this booklet the writer instructs the reader in how to withstand interrogation relating to his religion and jihad against the “Great Satan,” by exploiting the rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression. These rights are considered the most important rights in the United States, even if by exercising them, the United States is rendered less able to fight the enemies who conduct their jihad against it from within and from its prisons."

    "Many mosques in the United States are built today in quiet and serene residential neighborhoods, despite the residents having officially expressed their objection to the building of these mosques".

    Many synagogues in the United States are built today in quiet and serene residential neighborhoods, despite the residents having officially expressed their objection to the building of these synagogues.

    "The building of mosques gained momentum after the planning authorities of New York – who are guided by political correctness – allowed a mosque to be built near Ground Zero, the place where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, which were attacked by Islamic terror on the 11th of September 2001, used to stand."

    This is a baldfaced lie. There was no "allowed"; the group that wanted to build the center had an absolute right to build under current zoning laws, without any approvals other than the usual building inspections and the like. I seem to be the only person commenting on this who has actually looked at the zoning maps.

    Furthermore, there had been a mosque just four blocks from the World Trade Center before the Twin Towers even opened for business.

    " The fact is that no Muslims live in this area".

    That is a completely unprovable assumption and almost certainly false. In fact the mosque that was four blocks from the WTC site often had overflow crowds and recently was able to relocate to a larger space.

    "Many investment companies in the United States offer their clients investment plans that are consistent with Islamic Shari’a."

    And the problem with that is?

    I live in a county that has many Muslim immigrants, and many mosques. One of the imams publicly thanked President Obama for killing Osama bin Laden. Another imam opens up his mosque to host Orthodox Jewish services every Shabat morning. I have never been treated with anything but respect by the Muslims here, and ditto for my wife (who has had quite pleasant conversations with Muslim women regarding how both Jewish and Muslim women are required to cover their hair, and how it is done).

    Yes, there are Muslim terrorists who want to kill us all. But that is not all of Islam. this writer does our cause no good with these sweepingly broad generalizations, many of which could be made about Judaism thanks to some Jewish extremists. We'd label such as anti-Semitic. Fight the terrorists and the ideology behind them, not the religion.

  5. Hoe about my right to kick out from this country anyone who does not respects, recognize or accepts laws and traditions of USA?
    All these radical muslims do not have to live here, lets respectfully sent them back where their religion allows them to do everything they would like to instill on ALL of us. Stop PC, enough already….

  6. Charlie Hall, what is it you trying to say? People that live near to proposed mosques have no say in it? Why these mosques have to be build where they are not wanted? Why not build them where muslims live, like it is being done with churches and synagogues. BTW, most synagogues are located within walking distance for people who attend their services. Don't bunch together mosques and synagogues.
    Jewish people do not teach hatred, unlike radical muslims

  7. One imam thanked president! Wow, how great!
    You probably the most naive person in the world.
    Read world news and you will see that muslims are encouraged to deceive non muslims anyway they can. What they say one thing for their people in native language and opposite in foreign language.
    Judge people by their action not their wards

  8. Charlie Hall says:

    "Hoe about my right to kick out from this country anyone who does not respects, recognize or accepts laws and traditions of USA? "

    That was exactly what was done back in the 1910s — to Jews.

  9. Charlie Hall says:

    "People that live near to proposed mosques have no say in it? "

    Correct. Federal law pretty much gives religious institutions the right to build anywhere.

    "most synagogues are located within walking distance for people who attend their services"

    Only Orthodox synagogues.

    "Jewish people do not teach hatred"

    Sadly, I've heard pretty bad hatred coming from Jews, too.

    Precisely. Which is why I reported real actions.

    LOL

  14. Jacob Alperin-Sheriff says:

    Yeah and the goyim should be allowed to stop shuls because of the loud, destructive children playing outside/cars parked everywhere pre-Shabbos/people cutting through their yards … (these aren't hypotheticals, these are what my shul president mentioned we're getting complaints about last Shabbos)

  15. Charlie Hall says:

    I lived near a shul where the police used to get summoned every Purim in order to break up the drunken rioting. I'd prefer the calls to prayer.

  16. Anonymous says:

    Historically, Islam started out from day one with their Great Jihad, which plunged the West into darkness for a thousand years. At that point the West began rocketing ahead with science and technology and internecine strife leading to two world wars, allowing Islam to play dead, and it's just now reawakening with dreams of WMDs dancing in its head. That's why Westerners must quit ostriching and take the time to study the Muslim World. The best place is free with the Historyscoper's Muslimscope, a complete online course, try it this year.

    DID THE CARVING UP OF CZECHOSLOVAKIA BY BRITAIN FRANCE IN 1938 TO APPEASE ADOLF HITLER BRING PEACE IN 1939,1940 OR 1941? WILL? THE CARVING UP OF THE REBORN, REESTABLISHED AND REGATHERING SOVEREIGN HOLY LAND, PEOPLE AND STATE OF YISRAEL BY THE U.S.A., E.U., RUSSIAN FEDERATION AND THE U.N. TO APPEASE ARAB/MUSLIM/ISLAMIC HOMICIDAL TREACHERY AND BLACKMAIL EVER BRING ANY REAL PEACE? HISTORY SAYS "NO"!

  18. Roy Neal Grissom says:

    "Americanism" and secular multiculturalism are both false alternatives. All non-Jews are bound by the Noahide Laws just as Jews are bound by the Torah. All mankind should leave their false religions and accept the Noahide Laws on the authority of the Revelation to Moses at Sinai.

    Ironically, islam (as a statutory religion) is closer to Judaism than Xianity is. Of course, this is not as ironic as Orthodox Jews who defend "secular law" (a totally imaginary social construct) as the only trustworthy guarantor of the "right" to observe Torah. (It's not a "right." It's an obligation.)

    You need to go back to college and take some history courses. Europe was already at its nadir at the beginning of the 7th century, *before* Islam came into existence. The only point of light — and not a bright one — was the Byzantine Empire, which controlled as much territory in Asia and Africa as in Europe — and its treatment of Jews was so brutal that Jews actually revolted with the help of the Persians (and for a while even liberated Jerusalem).

    For the first few centuries of its existence, the Muslim world led the world in intellectual and scientific accomplishments, while Europe remained stuck in the dark ages. Some of the oldest universities in the world were established by Muslims at this time. Even after that there were great individual Muslims; the famous rationalist philosopher Ibn Rushd was a contemporary of — and a major influence on — Rambam. (Like Rambam, Ibn Rushd's works were banned by his co-religionists.)

    "No Jews or Dogs Allowed" is what I read when I see "Why these mosques have to be build where they are not wanted?"

Western countries ignore the rights of Iranians to live in freedom like the citizens of the West.

Lately, the pro-Western coalition has begun to crumble, and two key countries – Saudi Arabia and Egypt – are searching for a new political crutch.

This past month several dozens of jihad organizations operating in Syria came to the conclusion that the disagreements among them harm their fighting cause and strengthen Asad.

Netanyahu’s Bar Ilan Speech was not an attempt to emulate Obama by spreading false hope of an agreement with the Iranians.
