Fellow Americans’ suspicions frustrate US Muslims

NEW YORK (AP) - Nine years of denouncing terrorism, of praying side-by-side with Jews and Christians, of insisting “I’m American, too.” None of it could stop a season of hate against Muslims that made for an especially fraught Sept. 11. Now, Muslims are asking why their efforts to be accepted in the United States have been so easily thwarted.

“We have nothing to apologize for, we have nothing to fear, we have nothing to be ashamed of, we have nothing that we’re guilty of - but we need to be out there and we need to express this,” said Imam Mohammed Ibn Faqih in a sermon at the Islamic Institute of Orange County in Anaheim, Calif., the day before the 9/11 anniversary.

There is no simple way for American Muslims to move forward.

Images of violence overseas in the name of Islam have come to define the faith for many non-Muslims at home. The U.S. remains at war in Afghanistan, and although America has formally declared an end to its combat operations in Iraq, U.S. troops there continue to fight alongside Iraqi forces.

Fellow Americans’ suspicions frustrate US Muslims

As some have said in the comments section on this blog; Islam is as Islam does.

Where are all those peaceful, non-radical, all-American Muslims? Where are they? Why are they not standing, in one large and loud group, denouncing the EVIL that IS Islam? Why are they not denouncing the Quran, the Islamic version of the bible? And it’s passages that call for the DEATH of all that don’t submit to Islam?

They want us to believe that they are this *Religion of Peace*, but they are NOT.

Within the U.S., domestic terror has become a greater threat, while ignorance about what Islam teaches is widespread. More than half of respondents in a recent poll by the Pew Forum for Religion & Public Life said they knew little or nothing about the Muslim faith.

That’s it, simple ignorance. Ignorance on OUR part about what Islam teaches, about what Islam is, what it does and how it goes about it’s own brand of self promotion. Submit or DIE!

Muslims must think no one can read their filthy writings other than them. Once again I ask you, what part of religion OR peace do these passages from the Quran represent?

�? Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
�? The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
�? Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
�? Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)
�? Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels (8:60)
�? Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them (2:191)
�? Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood (9:123)
�? When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
�? Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
�? Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
�? The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
�? Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam. (5:33)
�? The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
�? Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies (22:19)

Nothing says peace and love to me like the one way rants and teachings of a goat loving pervert and pedophile that wants to kill any and all that don’t subscribe to his thinking.

In recent months, mosques in Tennessee, California, New York and elsewhere have been shot at and vandalized. Threatening messages were left at one mosque. A Florida pastor caused a global uproar with his ultimately unfulfilled threat to make a bonfire of Qurans on Sept. 11.

Many Jewish, Roman Catholic, mainline Protestant, evangelical, atheist and other groups have responded with an outpouring of support for Muslims, but suspicion remains high among many Americans.

Army seizes power in Mauritania

August 7th, 2008 . by TexasFred

NOUAKCHOTT, Mauritania - Army officers upset with government overtures toward Islamic hard-liners staged a coup in Mauritania on Wednesday, overthrowing the first government to be freely elected in this sprawling desert nation in more than 20 years.

The coup in Africa’s newest oil producer took place after the president and prime minister fired the country’s top four military officials, reportedly for supporting lawmakers who had accused the president of corruption and disagreed with how he was reaching out to Islamic hard-liners.

A brief announcement read over state television Wednesday said the new “state council” will be led by presidential guard chief Gen. Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, one of the four fired generals. The statement also restored the jobs of the other three generals.

President Sidi Ould Cheikh Abdallahi was being held by renegade soldiers at the presidential palace in Nouakchott, according to presidential spokesman Abdoulaye Mamadouba. Soldiers also detained Prime Minister Yahya Ould Ahmed Waqef, he said.

State radio and television went off air as the coup began and witnesses said soldiers were deployed throughout the capital. No violence was reported.

Pay close attention to the *reasons* behind this coup, government corruption and reaching out to Islamic hard-liners.

Corruption in the government?? Reaching out to, and generally submitting to Islamic *hard-liners?? Ignoring the safety and well being of the American people as ILLEGAL incursions, ie: armed invasion by Mexican army troops is allowed to happen on numerous occasions? Border patrol agent held at gunpoint

Does anyone besides me see the strong possibility that the USA could very well be headed in the same direction? Does anyone here today think that our own government isn’t guilty of the very same things?

Our Congress is out of control, and is run by a woman that is the most liberal thing to ever take the helm of the House of Representatives. Our Senate is being destroyed by the Dems, and the Dem LITE, ie: the former Republican party. Our President would support immediate amnesty for nearly 20 million ILLEGAL invaders if allowed, all the while allowing our southern border to be over-run.

Our own government has fallen to never before seen levels of disapproval, our President has an unbelievable level of disapproval, our financial markets are a day to day shamble, tremendous losses and reasonable gains, followed by more losses. We don’t have money, we have credit. We are owned by nations not our own.

There is a stage being set, right now, that is ripe for this very action to take place here in the USA. All the causes and reasons are in place, and where is our President today? In Beijing for the opening of the Olympic Games.

So, I guess what we have is this: Nero fiddled while Rome burned
