I finished the book Infiltration and it has some disturbing issues. The author claims that we can credit the muslims with getting Bush elected in 2000. Here's the scoop. Muslims usually vote Democrat, but Gore had a Jewish VP, so they went with Bush. That way they could claim "family values and tolerance." Professor Sami al-Arian, a now convicted terrorist, led the "get out the vote for Bush" in the muslim community in FL. Before 9-11 (but after the many terrorist activities before 9-11) the muslims were miffed that people were suspicious of them. They had talked Bush into removing any profiling of mid-eastern people, and also got him to agree to banish using secret evidence to get terrorist suspects deported. Then came 9-11 and Bush backed down. Yet muslims voted overwhelmingly for "W" in FL before 9-11, so the point can be valid.
A few other names pop up. Grover Norquist was a staunch right-winger, He married a mid-eastern woman and became a strong supporter of muslims. Carl Rove also was in the mix, trying to maintain muslim support for the GOP. In his 2000 campaign, Bush was advised to include the word mosque whenever he mentioned churches and synagogues. The muslims bristle that people see America as being in the Judeo-Christian sphere, and demand that be changed to Judeo-Christian-muslim tradition! Bush readily complied and even had an imam deliver an invocation at the GOP convention that nominated him.
Two other big Islamophiles are John Conyers and David Bonier, both representing the state of Michigan in Congress, MI is home to the biggest contingent of muslims in America, so these guys were selling out the USA to stay elected. Is RC biased, or just telling the truth? As Harry "Give 'em hell" Truman noted, "I never gave anybody hell. I just told the truth about them and they thought it was hell!" Now we have at least 2 muslims in Congress representing MN and IN. These guys have a lot of clout to see our intelligence reports. And true muslims say they never can really be Americans until we honor Allah and accept Sharia law. Just whose side are they on?
People are scared to death to profile mid-eastern men because our own government will support muslim law suits on discrimination. So we have a random system that avoids looking at the true characteristics that point out likely terrorists! The "law" prevents focusing on muslims and Arabs. Isn't that basically confusing a "religion" with an ethnicity--assuming Arabs are muslims? It's a pretty good statistical bet that they are. Would airport guards assume that all blue-eyed blonds are Lutherans or Hispanics are Roman Catholic or Southern blacks are Baptists? The data don't lie. It's not a random correlation that Arab terrorists are muslims. How may non-muslims were on those attack planes?
Our First Amendment protects religious freedom. Yet Christians are barred from wearing a cross in many paces of employment. Christians are told not to mention Jesus in public. Nativity scenes are removed from the public square. Our churches are not allowed to endorse any candidates or criticize the government from the pulpit if they want to remain tax-exempt. Yet the imams who are paid with federal money to serve the muslims in prisons spew anti-American hatred in their sermons (often spoken in Arabic) and encourage the inmates to use violence to advance Islam. Isn't this clearly mixing state and church? Yet our tax money pays these imams to convert our own people and turn against us. OK, Congress has paid chaplains, but I don't think they actually "steal sheep" from other religions. As Justice Warren Burger once noted, "The prayers in Congress are not part of the law-making process, so are allowed." The muslims have used our own freedoms against us and the liberals egg them on.
How do you get muslims to testify in a court if they don't accept the Bible? Would they swear to tell the truth based on the Koran, a book that allows muslims to lie if it benefits them and Islam? Talk about a conflict of interest. Even Yogi Berra couldn't come up with such a convoluted sense of logic! End of article.
Z: I believe RugCenter makes a lot of good points and that the book has facts not many of us were aware of. ...but we should be. Think there's any antidote for this 'infiltration'?
