ĎAmerican Sniperí derailed by Muslim complaints at University of Maryland
Washington Times ^

The University of Maryland joins the University of Michigan in the ranks of educational institutions with an "American Sniper" controversy.

Muslim student protests prompted the University of Maryland at College Park to announce the cancellation of the movie about deceased Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

"American Sniper only perpetuates the spread of Islamophobia and is offensive to many Muslims around the world for good reason. This movie dehumanizes Muslim individuals, promotes the idea of senseless mass murder, and portrays negative and inaccurate stereotypes," the university's Muslim Students Association said in its petition, Fox News reported Thursday.

This is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim equivalent of the Nazi party.

This is an ADMISSION that all Moslems are terrorists.

I’ve come to the belief that around 95% of Muslim believe FIRMLY in carrying out Islamic Terrorism including murders, force conversions and marriages, slavery for non-Muslims and other assorted evils. And the 95% may be a conservative estimate.

This is from the people who are responsible for the Armenian Genocide, the Greek Genocide, the Genocide of Indians in the Hindu Kush and countless more genocides.

See tag line. No such thing as moderate muzzies. They’re either doing the killing or facilitating it..

He said what he believes. That doesn’t need further citation.

I suspect he is at least in the ball park.

Muslims coming to America to use our freedoms to kill our freedoms.
This reminds me of Kruschev saying we would sell him the rope to hang us with.

Sorry...that’s MY personal belief based upon a significant number of Muslims that I know casually. They are silent (when around Infidels such as myself) on terrorist attacks and that reflects IMHO their acceptance & support (passive, at least) for Jihad actions. Some Muslims I’ve known are very much against the legitimacy of Jihad (and they’ve been US military types) but they are a small percentage. If you wish to believe the opposite from your experience feel free to do so.
