Obama’s recent visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore, a radical mosque with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, is a slap in the face to all Americans whose lives have been altered due to Islamic warfare. While Obama continues to lecture us about the “victimized” Muslim community here in the United States, his comments fly in the face of reality. Who is really victimized here?
Before the influx of Muslims on to our shores, I can remember an America where we felt free to enter a school without security checks. I can remember going to concerts and sporting events without having my purse searched. It was possible to drive to the airport and get on a plane without waiting in line for security clearance, and one could attend Jewish services without having to worry about the temple being shot up.
Today, due to threats against Jews which stem from Quranic anti-Semitism, Jewish schools and temples have become fortresses. The cost for additional security guards and walls is enormous and a drain on temple funds already stretched from a decline in membership. Muslim anti-Semitism is rampant on college campuses where Jewish students are verbally and sometimes physically accosted by young Muslims. As a recent study conducted by the FBI bears out and contrary to Obama’s assertions, it is Jews and not Muslims who are the victims of hate. Of the 1,409 hate crimes in 2014, 65.4% were against Jews and only 13.2% were against Muslims.
Due to Islamic warfare, our airports are under heavy security. As a result, we are subjected to long waiting lines, body scans, and pat downs. Muslim cab drivers in Minneapolis and New York city refuse service to those who carry alcohol and to those with dogs because in Islam, alcohol is forbidden and dogs are considered unclean.
Yet, Muslim demands for accommodation are never ending. They require foot baths and prayer rooms at universities and airports at taxpayers expense, prayer time at public schools, separate swim hours at public swimming pools, public recognition and celebration of Islamic holidays, Halal meat in schools, restaurants, and supermarkets. They demand that crosses be removed from Georgetown University, a Catholic university, because it offends them. It is not Christians and Jews who are scheming to defy our Constitution, but rather it is Muslims. It is the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America that proclaimed in a published paper in 2008 that the duty of Muslims is not to uphold the law of the land, but to make the laws of Allah supreme.
When polled in 2007 by Pew Research, 26% of American Muslims supported suicide bombing. In 2015, 19% of Muslims Americans said violence is justified in order to make Sharia the law of the land, and 25% stated that violence against America was justified as part of the global jihad in a poll conducted by the Center for Security Policy in 2015.
That same poll also found that 80% of mosques in the United States had radical material within their mosques.
Then there is the actual death and destruction inflicted by Muslims as a result of Islamic warfare. Unlike prior wars where men in uniform fought against other men in uniform, we civilians are the targets.
Even prior to 9/11 when we lost nearly 3000 Americans, there were attacks on our embassy in Iran (1979), Beirut (1983) ,Kuwait (1983); the hijacking of an American plane (TWA #847), the hijacking of a cruise ship (Achille Lauro in 1985); the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie , Scotland in 1988; the first bombing attack on the World Trade Center in 1993; the foiled N.Y. Landmarks plot by Omar Abdel Rahman to blow up the Lincoln and Holland tunnels in New Your City; the attempted assassination of President Bush Sr. during a visit to Kuwait in 1994; the failed attempt to blow up a dozen US airlines over the Pacific in 1995; the bombing of US military headquarters in Saudi Arabia in 1995; the bombing of Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia where U.S. military personnel were housed in 1996; the bombing of our embassy in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998; the foiled LAX millennium plot by Ahmed Ressam and the bombing of the USS. Cole in 2007.
Since then, there was the Ft. Hood shooting, the Boston bombing, the Chattanooga massacre, the attack on a army recruitment center in Little Rock, Arkansas, the beheading of a woman in Oklahoma, the knife attack on the University of California Merced campus, the attempted murder of American civilians in Garland, Texas and the shooting that killed 14 people and wounded 22 in San Bernardino.
There have been over 28,000 Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11 world wide. France, Belgium, Sweden, Spain, England, Germany, Italy, Greece, and Finland are all under attack from Muslims who have migrated and begun to colonize the West. Canada and Australia, have also suffered Islamic attacks at the hands of Muslims. In India, Thailand, China, and Russia, Muslims have engaged in warfare against Hindus and Buddhists. Throughout the Middle East, Christians and Yazidis are being ethnically cleansed while Jews are knifed to death in daily attacks by their Muslim neighbors. In Nigeria, Christians are fighting to stay alive as Muslims continue to burn down entire villages, women and children included. It is estimated that nearly 270 million non-Muslims have been killed by Muslims since Islam’s inception during the 7th century. The common denominator for all of these murderous attacks is that they were committed by Muslims in the name of Islam.
No, Mr. President, it is not the Muslim community that needs protection. It is the rest of humanity that must be protected from the scourge known as Islam and those who practice it.
