“The Left” and Islamists to Bring Down Judeo-Christian America

Unless we participate and counter, the anti-Islam propaganda will gain momentum. This is false and we can laugh at it, but is gaining ground and we have to counter it. What are the things we can do to change?
All it takes is for us to speak up, like all other groups, 99% of us are good moderates who want to get along with others and hate imposition of any of our idea or religion onto others.

“The Left” and Islamists to Bring Down Judeo-Christian America

While Republican presidential candidates are competing to establish their cred as opponents of Islam, ACT! for America a leading organization fostering hostility and fear toward Muslims, met in DC last week for their National Conference. About 250 activists (and I’m sure more than one observer) from around the country listened to impassioned speeches, cruised the Potomac, had lunch at the Capitol Hill Club and lobbied members of Congress.

The narrative is the same: there are Muslim terrorists in the world who want to destroy America. While not all Muslims are terrorists, you can’t tell which ones are because they all lie. “They’re wolves in sheep’s clothing, taqiyyah to the max.”

 The crowd was mostly couples, ranging from 30-somethings to 60-somethings, nearly all white. They had clearly participated in these events before because many knew the intricacies of the argument that there is a well connected global jihad out to overtake the U.S. and ultimately the whole world. Shouting out the answers to “questions” designed to elicit specific responses, it reminded me of a kindergarten teacher who frames questions for students to answer in unison: “the day after Thursday is…”

The three-day conference featured, in addition to Stakelbeck, author Andrew Bostom, counterterrorism “expert” John Guandolo, Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media (AIM) and Congressmember Allen West (R-FL). It was hosted by Brigitte Gabriel, who told the New York Times earlier this year that “America has been infiltrated on all levels by radicals who wish to harm America.”

And indeed, that was the theme of the conference. Speakers conflated Muslim organizations as diverse as the Muslim Student Association (MSA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) with the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah and al Qaeda “They’re all friends of the Muslim Brotherhood and should be banned… outlawed… it’s a no-brainer,” said Stakelbeck.

According to Guandolo, the Muslim Brotherhood devised a strategy decades ago to establish Islamic states in the U.S. and around the world. They infiltrated American institutions such as schools, media, even religious organizations—by making them open to “interfaith efforts.” And he claimed they planned the “Arab Spring” as a first step in the more westernized Middle Eastern nations by showing a screenshot of a website from February 2010 with a banner headline proclaiming “Freedom!” And now, “Lots of guys who are al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood in the capitol” and in everyother important American institution.

They see the “expansion of mosques” in the U.S. as a key part of the infiltration strategy. Building “mega Islamic Centers,” with foreign money (they say we don’t know where the money comes from before asserting that it comes from Saudi Arabia) in “residential neighborhoods where there are no Muslims… If you build it they will come.”

But building a worship center isn’t a protected religious right, according to Guandolo, “this isn’t about the First Amendment it’s about Article 6 of the Constitution.” Ironically, while Article 6 lays out the sovereignty of the laws of the United States. it is also prohibits a religious test for public office.

A questioner asked Stakelbeck: “Why is the administration sucking up to (Muslims?) Is it stupid? Sinister? The reply was that “The Left sees Islam as an ally and Western Civilization and the Judeo-Christian tradition is the enemy. They (Islam and the Left) have a shared hatred for this country.” And of course, that sounds crazy to those of us whom they lump together as “the Left,” but remember, in their minds the Tea Party and David Barton are the “real America.”

So there’s a religious group in America that believes that ultimately the whole world will submit to the authority of its God and its religious law, and is working to bring about that reality... so what else is new? Thing is, I don’t confuse those Christian Reconstructionists with my Christian colleagues here at RD. (…say Pastor Dan and Candace?) And even Christian conservatives across the country are quick to distance themselves from Rushdoony and the rest. I can’t for the life of me understand why the same divisions in Islam aren’t obvious to anyone who looks. Moreover, finding the Muslims who support freedom and democracy seems like the best way to address the threat of Islamic terrorism.

Planned Muslim Response to Qur'an Burning by Pastor Jones on September 11 in Mulberry, Florida

We as Muslims plan to respond to pastor Terry Jones' planned burning of 3000 copies of Quran on September 11, 2013 in positive terms.

Our response - we will reclaim the standard of behavior practiced by the Prophet concerning “scurrilous and hostile criticism of the Qur’an” (Muhammad Asad Translation Note 31, verse 41:34). It was "To overcome evil with good is good, and to resist evil by evil is evil." It is also strongly enjoined in the Qur’an in the same verse 41:34, “Good and evil deeds are not equal. Repel evil with what is better; then you will see that one who was once your enemy has become your dearest friend.”

God willing Muslims will follow the divine guidance and pray for the restoration of Goodwill, and on that day many Muslim organizations will go on a “blood drive” to save lives and serve humanity with kindness.

We invite fellow Americans of all faiths, races, and ethnicities to join us to rededicate the pledge, “One nation under God”, and to build a cohesive America where no American has to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of fellow Americans. This event is a substitute for our 10th Annual Unity Day Celebration (www.UnitydayUSA.com) held in Dallas, but now it will be at Mulberry, Florida.

Unwittingly Pastor Jones has done us a favor by invigorating us by his decision to burn nearly 3000 copies Quran on September 11, 2013. Obviously he is not satisfied by the notoriety he garnered by burning one Qur'an last year.

As Muslims and citizens we honor the free speech guaranteed in our constitution. We have no intentions to criticize, condemn or oppose Pastor Terry Jones' freedom of expression. Instead, we will be donating blood and praying for goodness to permeate in our society.

We plan to follow Jesus Christ (pbuh), a revered prophet in Islam as well as Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) – that of mitigating the conflicts and nurturing good will for the common good of the society.

We hope, this event and the message will remind Muslims elsewhere in the world as well, that violence is not the way. Muslims, who react violently to senseless provocation, should realize that, violence causes more violence, and besmirches the name of the religion that we hold so dear. We believe that Prophet Muhammad was a mercy to the mankind, and we ought to practice what we believe and preach. We must not insult Islam by the negative reactions of a few.

We can only hope it will bring about a change in the attitude of the followers of Pastor Jones, and in the behavior of those Muslims who reacted violently the last time Pastor sought notoriety – We hope this small step towards a bridge to peaceful coexistence would propel us towards building a cohesive society.

Like most Americans a majority of Muslims quietly go about their own business, but it is time to speak up and take positive action instead of negative reaction. May this message of peace and goodwill reverberate and reach many shores.

Lastly, we appreciate the Citizens of Mulberry, Florida, Honorable Mayor George Hatch, City Commissioners, police and Fire Chiefs for handing this situation very well. This will add a ‘feather of peace’ in the City’s reputation. We hope Mulberry will be a catalyst in showing the way in handling conflict with dignity and peace.

We thank the Media for giving value to the work towards peace rather than conflict.

Thank you.


The people in Dallas are making an effort to understand and clean their own hearts first, when we are free from bias, it would be easy to share that with others. Islam teaches us in so many ways to "respect the otherness of others" and it is time we find simple practical ways of doing it.
