What's behind America's politically correct 'love' of Islam?
World Net Daily ^ | November 09, 2009

Posted on 11/10/2009 12:21:38 PM PST by An Old Man

The second they heard about the Fort Hood massacre, millions of thinking Americans wondered in their gut: "Oh God, is this another crazy Muslim terrorist carrying out a one-man jihad, as has happened so many times before?"

Then, when the alleged perpetrator's name and religion were made public (Nidal Malik Hasan, a lifelong Muslim) along with eyewitness reports he had shouted the obligatory pre-terror-attack proclamation, "Allahu akbar" ("Allah is greatest") before commencing his orgy of slaughter, their suspicions were confirmed: This was surely a major attack on the American homeland by a Muslim terrorist. Further evidence quickly rolled in: Hasan had reportedly refused to fight fellow Muslims, called the war on terror a "war on Islam," told a co-worker Muslims had a right to rise up and attack Americans, and reportedly had posted online his astoundingly twisted belief that an Islamic suicide bomber was morally equivalent to a soldier throwing himself on a grenade to save the lives of his comrades.

They like it because one of its beliefs is that Jesus is not the Son of God. Therefore, Islam negates Christianity. And they like that.

I think that it’s because the American political class believes that muslims can be another voting demographic which they can manipulate for their benefit.

From The Secret to the Suicidal Liberal Mind:

It is possible to perceive the passions of the Left as frenzies of masochism. What could be more idiotic and masochistic than to oppose missile defense? This opposition cannot be understood unless one dispenses with its rhetoric and rationales and realizes that these folks at their emotional core do not want their country defended.

The lunacy of the "global warming" hoax cannot be comprehended other than that its masochistic advocates do not want their civilization to prosper. The culture-destroying immigration policies that Pat Buchanan warns are causing "The Death of the West" were put in place by those who do not want their culture to survive.

"he had shouted the obligatory pre-terror-attack proclamation, "Allahu akbar" ("Allah is greatest") "

I'm glad this author translated the obligatory murder cry as "Allah" and NOT "God".

Although the argument is that Allah is merely the Arabic word for god, the fact is that Islam has changed the meaning of that word every bit as much as homosexuals have changed the meaning of the word "gay" from its original meaning.

The god of Islam is NOT the God of the Bible.

Since many in Western cultures have a different idea of God it is worth clarifying, IMO, that Muslims are referring to a god specific to their Arab-centric religion.

The only thing these ideologies all have in common is that they are unutterably opposed to western civ and its most prominent defender, America.

Which is plenty for a liberal. He feels the same way himself.

This was surely a major attack on the American homeland by a Muslim terrorist.

Depending on the definition one uses, this may not qualify as terrorism.

Most definitions emphasize the civilian nature of the target. This was a military target.

There are lots of other negative terms to use to describe it: murder, treason, betrayal of one's salt, etc.

From 2nd Thessalonians:

7. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.

8. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

9. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,

10. and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.

11. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie

He still purposely picked an unarmed crowd.
Kind of a grey area between a civilian and military target there.

"According to the Washington Post, the problem was that Hasan was lonely. That's right, the newspaper's report, titled "The lonely life of alleged Fort Hood shooter," was subtitled: "'He was mistreated. He didn't have nobody. He was all alone,' says neighbor"

And that couldn't possibly be his own fault.

Couldn't be that he was an angry prick who denigrated his country to everyone around him, who like him had sworn an allegiance to serve faithfully.

Is it possible that Americans are really just a bunch of rebels who delight in acting independently of a central governing force?

I think it’s benefited by having a President who spent his formative years in a muslim country as a student in muslim schools.

I think this is a much bigger issue than, “Was he really born in Hawaii.”

The FBI is trying to cover their tails! Sounds reminiscent of the same excuses they made after 9/11 - “They were aware of the activities and tracking him” but did diddly squat to stop him.

The Director of the FBI and The [so-called] Attorney General should be called on the carpet and summarily fired for dereliction of duty and incompetenece!

1. Islam is not only a spiritual practice, but is also a political exercise and a governmental institution.
2. Islam is, therefore, in direct conflict with the system of law that governs our nation. It would also be impossible for any Muslim who strictly adheres to Islam as a spiritual practice, a political exercise and a system of government to swear to defend the Constitution of the United States
3. Dr. Hasan’s understanding of his faith is at the core of his dissatisfaction with his employment resulting in his decision to take up arms and commit fratricide against his brothers and sisters at arms and treason against the United States of America.
4. Unless, or until, Islam in America disavows any allegiance to the political and governmental branches of the practice of the faith, there should be no tolerance of the religion in the military. This is not due to bigotry but, rather, to the violation of conscience that results from the deeply held faith that conflicts with the Constitution and the oath to protect it.
5. Neither Christianity, nor Judiasm, nor Hinduism, nor Buddhism requires the practitioner to swear allegiance to any other form of government in order to practice the faith.
6. It is, therefore, only logical that to be a Muslim is a direct conflict of interest and a violation of conscience regardless of whether the practitioner makes the decision to take up arms against our nation or commit criminal acts.
7. To say that Dr. Hasan’s acts are not the result of his religious beliefs is disingenuous. To say that in order to not be guilty of bigotry one must overlook the obvious conflicts of conscience engendered by the practice of Islam is ludicrous and without merit.
8. It is time to speak truthfully regarding the practice of Islam. It is a religious practice that is in direct contradiction of our system of government and will continually cause strife and distress while it remains a political exercise and system of government.
9. No insult or bigotry is intended by this observation. It is a simple and direct assessment of the current state of affairs in all countries that have historically been referred to as “Western Civilizations”. The practices of Islam and Western Civilization are incompatible.

Liberals have other major agendas right now — they know their majorities in congress is not going to last long and they must get every last benefit from it before it ends. It’s a domestic agenda and it’s completely based on redistribution of wealth stupid!

Islamism and terror is not on their punch list and it is indeed a dangerous distraction that will derail the whole deck of marxist card they have built so carefully. Hence the whitewashing and downplaying of the real war the world is fighting against islamofascist terrorism.

True, but you also have to add the business class. In Britain, in the late seventies, the casinos catered heavily to the Arab Sheiks, as they spent lavishly and gambled away a lot of money. The MSM has many Arab investors. Mercedes and BMW are very popular among the oil rich upper class of the MidEast.
Oil companies have to cater to Muslim desires, as we don’t allow much drilling here.

It has all been a long time coming and by now, is an industry in America. It is the ‘Multiculturalism industry’.

It started out as a sort of casual and amusing interest in cultures and people who were quaint in their customs and unique in their beliefs and which were NOT like America. That was harmless enough, necessary to a healthy culture and even wholesome to a point.

Now it is the unquestioning, indiscriminate and habitual worship and adoration of ANYTHING which is NOT American… no matter how alien or pernicious it is in itself or to other cultures, (especially to the American culture). As a matter of fact, it is more highly esteemed and readily accepted, the more inimical it is American culture and values.

For example: Can you view a history, travel, cultural or even a cooking program which wastes NO opportunity to scorn or malign what is American? I won’t even ask about a ‘news’ program because it goes without saying that nothing accurate of positive will ever be noted about America or Americans on THOSE programs.

Think about that!
