Reader comment on item: The United States Government, Still the Patron of Islam

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Feb 8, 2016 at 04:37

"To accompany Obama's speech today in Baltimore about Islam, the White House website has posted a page on "Muslim and American: Voices from the White House," with the "stories of dedicated public servants who have faced discrimination and found hope in the work they do every day on behalf the American people." ...Unimaginable, again, that such an official page would be posted on behalf of members of any other religion. (February 3, 2016)"

Your comment, Daniel, is well-put. As far as Muslims "facing discrimination", the following suffices to set the matter into context:

FBI: 57% of Anti-Religious Hate Crimes Targeted Jews; 16% Targeted Muslims
-- http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-morris/fbi-us-jews-targeted-57-anti-religious-hate-crimes-muslims-targeted-16

For every Obama website praising Muslims for their patient endurance of discrimination, there ought therefore to be at least three such websites praising Jews. I dare say, this is not the case.

I don't think that the US Government, US Academia, the US Press, etc. seriously believe their BS about how "American" Muslims are, and how "Muslim" America is. Islam -- not just the extremists who go about blowing up innocent Americans, but the doctrine of Islam itself -- is diametrically opposed to the values this country was founded on. They do not believe in the Bible, as the Pilgrims did; they do not believe in freedom of religion, as Roger Williams did; they do not believe in democracy, as the colonial New Englanders did. Islam, as explicitly spelled out in Qur'an, is about worldwide domination of all others by non-Christian, anti-democratic religious bigots like Muhammed and his companions. That ought to be plainly evident to anyone who has bothered to read even a few suras of the Muslim Unholy Book.

The motive behind the nonesense you mention is not promotion of Islam, something which, in practice, is absolutely abhorrent to the people putting out this propaganda. This is not a promotion of Islam, but an attack on the God of the Bible: The God of truth, whom liars hate; the God of rightiousness, whom corrupt people hate; the God of purity, whom the unclean hate. It is a covert hate crime, presented as political correctness. The intended victims are Christians and Jews, who suffer because of it.
