Reader comment on item: The Islamic States of America?
in response to reader comment: Get out of Islamophobia

Submitted by Karen (United States), Nov 9, 2010 at 10:48

Islamophobia? Give me a break! Let's quit with the political correctness and just call a spade a spade. The Muslims in this country have practiced Islam differently from their brethren in the Old Country. American Muslims who've immigrate here have become decadent and corrupt because here they can get away with foolishness that will have them beheaded in their home countries. Muslims make a lot of noise about tolerance, but confront them on their chauvinism towards converts, non-Arab Muslims, how they treat African-Americans and the local imam will issue a fatwah for your disappearance.

There is no such thing as a "moderate Muslim" for it is a legal fiction created by the US propaganda machine to separate the "good Muslims from the bad Muslims". American born Muslims are not and do not consider themselves moderate. They're too busy chasing after the American dream, trying to assimilate into White society, and trying to appease Christians so they will not burn down their mosques in response to Muslim men marrying White Christian women. American Muslims do not want to assimilate to American culture yet they want to reap the benefits of living in American society.

Rarely will anyone see Muslim kids attend non-Muslim community cultural events, join the Boy/Girl Scouts, participate in community service activities (such as MLK Day of Service) mentoring at the local Boys and Girls Clubs. The parents teach their kids that interacting with non-Muslims will decrease their faith because they are imitating the non-Muslim and imitating the non-Muslim is one way of going straight to Hellfire. The parents also teach their kids that participating in non-Muslim activities with non-Muslims will weaken their kids religious faith and make them more susceptible to temptations from the outside world. They would rather sit back and complain about how the community in which they live is not like the old country forgetting why they came to the US and failing to make their adopted country a better place. Hell, if they miss the Old Country so badly then they can return there. But they can't go back because, one they've got it good here and have become accustomed to easy living, and most importantly if they do return they'll get branded as American infidels who are traitors to Islam and earn punishment according to Sharia Law.

Forget interfaith dialogue because the Council of Arab Islamic Relations will send its emissary who will not stray from talking points and fill the room with bountiful platitudes about a religion based on peace. In my experience with CAIR, it is a political organization that focuses on non-issues such as hijab wearing and making their presence known in public places of business. In reality, the organization buries its head in the sand on social problems within the community that plagues all Americans: domestic violence, unemployment, crime, drugs, etc for fear of airing its dirty laundry and revealing there are divisions among Muslims on how to address these issues. CAIR presents its facade of a unified Muslim community in the face of us "infidels" to show its strength in numbers. The hard realities remain: Bring up the fact that Muslims (not Al-Qaeda) destroyed centuries-old Buddhist statues in Afghanistan in 2005, Muslims (of Pakistani origin) killed 125 people of various religious backgrounds on Boxing Day 2009, Egyptian Arab Muslims slaughtered over 2 million of their Sudanese and Chad brethren in the Darfur region between 2006-2009 because one segment of Islam wanted to "purify the faith from non-believers" by ethnically cleansing another.

History chronicles their many acts of hatred and violence against others simply because Muslims cannot and will not show compassion towards themselves or others. Although Muslims begin their prayers with in the name of the most compassionate and most merciful, they show no compassion or mercy to any one who doesn't look like them, think like them, act like them, or worship like them.
