This story came out today that contains a fair amount of details but failed to connect the dots. What seems relevant to the historical facts is that almost all terrorist attacks, both planned and executed in America, have been committed by Muslims. Here are two paragraphs from the Associated Press story worth mentioning:
WASHINGTON (AP) - More than half of Muslim Americans in a new poll say government anti-terrorism policies single them out for increased surveillance and monitoring, and many report increased cases of name-calling, threats and harassment by airport security, law enforcement officers and others.
Regarding possible terror risks, about 21 percent of Muslim Americans say there is "a great deal" or "a fair amount" of support for extremism in their communities, according to the Pew survey.
Regarding that Pew survey that revealed 21 percent of Muslim Americans “say there is "a great deal" or "a fair amount" of support for extremism in their communities”, with an estimated 2.75 million Muslims in America, that means we have over half a million Muslim terrorist sympathizers living here. And yet, this story continues to give a platform to CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, without mentioning that the U.S. Dept. of Justice identified CAIR, as one of a group of Muslim organizations, as unindicted co-conspirators in the Hamas terrorist funding Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, Texas.
On a ancillary note, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati was criticized by the Cincinnati Enquirer for ordering Mother of Mercy High School to cancel a Muslim Ramadan Iftar dinner. The Enquirer has recently been giving wide exposure to both CAIR and some Muslim residents who voiced concern over negative feelings in the tri-state for their religion. The Enquirer ran a lengthy editorial that even dragged in some quotes by Rev. Martin Luther King to justify diversity towards Muslims. Never once did the Enquirer mention anything about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial or that CAIR was identified by the U.S. Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of several terror groups, to be its mouthpiece in the United States.
For the record, the animosity is not being aimed at Muslims but at the Islamic religion they follow that preaches absolute intolerance toward all other religions. The source of this intolerance comes directly from the Koran itself which commands Muslims to not take unbelievers as friends and warns Muslims that they will become Apostates if they do. And the suspicions against mosques being recruiting places for terrorists is also well founded because a majority of mosques in America are built with finances from the Saudi Arabian government which requires them to include Wahhabi literature that condemns all Western Civilization and man-made governments.
