CAIR

Reader comment on item: Debating the Khalil Gibran International Academy

Dr. Pipes is right, and I've heard that same CAIR quote before (I think it's from Ibhrahim Hooper?) CAIR wishes to first convert Americans to Islam. This is what is said in the Quran:

1) First, to offer the enemy (that would be us non-Muslims, folks) to join Islam.

2) For Christians and Jews, impose the Jizya. This is a tax that they must pay, and the idea is, of course, to bully them into becoming Muslims through financial despair.

3) Kill them (or us, I should say).

Now, CAIR is just one of many NGO's and doesn't have an army. Like the spreading of Islam all over Western Europe and certain areas of Canada and Austrailia, they will make due with what they strength they have.

I have carefully observed that Muslims are routinely testing the fences of our society, so to speak. They are always looking for weaknesses.

We've seen this not just in Vermont (Middlebury College I think was where liberal investigator Bill Moyers of PBS made a religious "documentary" that portrayed Christianity in a negative light), but also in Minneapolis at a charter school for mainly Muslim students. The school had been around for a few years and apparently never flew the American flag.

The primary weakness of a democracy, ironically, is it's strength: The people. In his book Culture Warrior, Bill O'Reilly writes: who is a terrorist more likely to work with: left-wing groups that oppose every single anti-terror measure imaginable, or conservative-minded Republican Christians and other religious who will jump in the trenches and fight them.

Which is easier to bypass?

It's really crucial for everyone in the West to know that radical terrorism is just one facet of spreading RADICAL Islam. Sharia law is the other. Dr. Pipes has analyzed this very well.

When I first heard about 9-11, I knew that we could crush the terrorists.

But because NATO and ISAF have broken al quedia, I think that sharia law advocacy groups like CAIR are the real threat. You don't have to be blowing up stuff to be damaging a society.

Look at it like this: CAIR gave Keith Ellison a bunch of money. For those of you who don't know (not trying to sound deragetory), but he is the first Muslim ever elected at the federal level. He is a Representative in the House on Capitol Hill. Now, if you know anything about Minneapolis, it's a predominantly liberal city. Ellison himself actually was elected based mostly on that premise.

You would THINK that a liberal who is for things like homosexual "marriage" goes against anything sharia law teaches (and what CAIR wants) so why give him the money?

Answer: Publicity. Show everyone that Muslims aren't all that bad. I mean, Mike Huckabee would probably change this country more towards a religious state than Eillison would, but like I said, CAIR and other Muslim advocacy groups will take what they can get and will keep on doing so.

So, I guess the question I'd get is "does it really work?" The answer is a resounding yes. It's amazing how many so-called educated people (mostly liberals) fall for this BS. Either that, or they know all about the diabolical plans, and simply don't care or have the will to care. Many liberals will defend everyone from teachers who sexually harass young boys to criminal illegal aliens to Muslim terrorists as long as they cast a vote for the blue in the election.

And you know it makes too much sense..
