Far Left Muslim sympathizers at Huffington Post wonder: “Is America is becoming more Islamophobic?”

hqdefault-vi1

First of all, there is no such thing as ‘Islamophobia.’ Fear, distrust, and suspicion about Islam, and the supremacist behavior of its followers, not only is entirely rational, it is basic to ensuring the survival of Western culture, freedom, and justice.

In light of that, Americans ARE becoming more anti-Islam, as they witness repeated attempts by Muslims in America to impose sharia law, demanding and getting special accommodation for their religious needs, conspiring, with the help of wealthy Arab donors, to facilitate the teaching of Islam in public schools, not to mention the surge in threats from Muslim terrorists in America and the near daily atrocities committed by Muslim terrorist groups all around the world.

Huffington Post  In August 2010, the cover of Time asked “Is America Islamophobic?” Bobby Ghosh wrote the featured article in response to the intense and at times ugly debate surrounding the proposed “Ground zero Victory Mosque” aka Islamic Center in Lower Manhattan that engulfed the nation that summer.

Five years later, it’s worth revisiting the question. Is America Islamophobic? Better yet, has America become more Islamophobic in the five years since the Ground Zero Victory Mosque controversy? Much of the evidence points to a sobering answer. The 9/11 Mosque controversy was the beginning of a new phase of anti-Muslim hostility that shows no signs of abating. Consider the following:

  • HATE CRIMES: According to FBI reports, anti-Muslim hate crimes (the majority of which are graffiti on mosques) are five times more common today than before 9/11, and the average number of hate crimes per year since 2010 has been higher than in the three years preceding the Ground Zero Victory Mosque controversy. This data does not even include some of the horrific violence witnessed in the past year, such as the execution-style murders of three Muslims in Chapel Hill, NC.  (Determined by police NOT to have been a bias crime)

  • MOSQUES: According to data provided by the ACLU and the Pew Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life, conflicts over mosques, including efforts to prevent the construction of mosques and graffiti attacks on mosques, have increased since the Ground Zero mosque controversy. Between 2005-2007, there were nine such conflicts or episodes, a number that increased to twenty between 2008-2010. From 2010-2012, the number of anti-mosque disputes rose to eighty-nine. That’s a 345% increase from the preceding period and likely due in part to the orchestrated campaign against the Ground Zero Victory Mosque led by the likes of Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer.

  • SURVEILLANCE AND PROFILING: The FBI/NYPD continue to rely heavily on the use of informants to infiltrate mosques and communities in an effort to see how willing Muslims are to participate in terrorist activity. A recent case involved the arrest of three Brooklyn men for plotting to join ISIS. . Last year, the far left wing Human Rights Watch labeled the FBI use of informants to participate in terrorist plots as “abusive” and bordering on entrapment.

  • The NYPD’s own surveillance program of Muslim communities was made known to the public in 2011. It too relied on informants as well as “mosque crawlers” and various methods of religious profiling to target potential terrorists. The NYPD disbanded the program in 2014 (under the notorious Muslim-pandering Mayor Bill deBlasio), but it has not formally renounced some of its  surveillance tactics, including the use of informants, the labeling of some mosques as “terrorism enterprises,” and the reliance on a theory of radicalization that links almost any devout Muslim man with being on a path toward radicalization.

  • PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS: The last presidential race witnessed the most prominent examples of political anti-Islam sentiment to date. At one GOP debate, Newt Gingrich compared Muslim Americans to Nazis, insisting that just as the latter tried to infiltrate the U.S. during World War II, and Muslims are trying to do the same today. On another occasion, Gingrich claimed, “Sharia is a mortal threat to the survival of freedom in the United States.” Herman Cain indicated in an interview that, if elected, he would not appoint a Muslim to his cabinet or as a federal judge. He also echoed Gingrich’s concerns about sharia, insisting that there was a “creeping attempt…to gradually ease Sharia law and the Muslim faith into our government.”

  • The 2016 presidential race already includes a field with a recent history of anti-Islamic rhetoric. Rick Santorum accused Presidents Bush and Obama of giving “all Muslims a pass for identifying a cancer within their own body.” The disease in question was presumably “Islamic terrorism.”Ted Cruz argued that sharia law in the U.S. is an “enormous problem.”Rand Paul compared the Muslims who wanted to build the Ground Zero Victory Mosque to the KKK. Lindsey Graham suggested that the Charleston shooter’s decision to sit in a bible study for an hour before opening fire reflects “Mideast hate” (a euphemism for “Islamic hate”).Mike Huckabee maintained that Islam “promotes the most murderous mayhem on the planet.” Based on these sentiments, it’s a safe bet that the anti-Islam rhetoric will be amplified for the 2016 race.

  • ANTI-SHARIA LAWS: The fear that sharia is taking over the U.S., articulated by some of the current presidential contenders, is more deeply rooted in the country. A movement to ban sharia law in the states, orchestrated by an anti-Muslim lawyer named David Yerushalmi, emerged in 2010 in Oklahoma. In the past five years, eight states have voted to ban sharia law, and a majority of states have seen bills introduced proposing such a ban.

  • ANTI-ISLAM ‘HATE’ RALLIES: The recent “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, TX, attracted considerable media attention for the two extremists who tried to open fire at the event. But the event, led by Pamela Geller, also revealed the attraction of hate rallies that engage in Muslim-bashing under the pretense of defending freedom of speech. The Garland event inspired an anti-Islam rally outside a Phoenix mosque almost a month later. That rally, however, upped the ante by encouraging participants to come armed in order to defend their freedom of speech. Similar rallies are planned for later in the summer.

  • MEDIA: Anti-Islam rhetoric is rampant in all forms of mass media (We wish!). Oscar-contending films from the past several years have featured hoards of angry, violent, anti-American Muslims who are thwarted by white American heroes, from Argo to Zero Dark Thirty to American Sniper. Muslims prone to violence and terrorism are also central to the plotlines of recent award-winning television shows such as Homeland. The image of Muslims in the U.S. news media has also declined since 2010. According to a Media Tenor study, just over 40 percent of network news coverage of Muslims was negative in 2010. By 2013, almost three-quarters of coverage depicted Muslims in a negative light and usually in relation to violence or terrorism.

Much more could be added to this list, including Representative Peter King’s hearings in 2011 on the radicalization of Muslim Americans, or the media’s ongoing reluctance to apply the word “terrorist” to anyone who is not Muslim. What is clear is that Islamophobia did not fade with the Ground Zero Victory Mosque  defeat.  If anything, it has intensified. Most polls confirm the persistence of this anxiety in the broader population. For example, recent polls from reveal that a majority of Americans have a somewhat or very unfavorable view of Islam.

POLL: More than 50% of Muslims in America want to live under barbaric sharia law

timthumb.php_And many of them would even support the use of violence to force imposition of sharia on everyone. So much for the lies and propaganda put out by politicians and the mainstream media and even some in the conservative media, who like to claim that these kind of “radical” views are only held by a “teeny tiny minority” of Muslims.

Center for Security Policy  According to a new nationwide online survey (Below) of 600 Muslims living in the United States, significant minorities embrace supremacist notions that could pose a threat to America’s security and its constitutional form of government.

The numbers of potential jihadists among the majority of Muslims who appear not to be sympathetic to such notions raise a number of public policy choices that warrant careful consideration and urgent debate, including: the necessity for enhanced surveillance of Muslim communities; refugee resettlement, asylum and other immigration programs that are swelling their numbers and density; and the viability of so-called “countering violent extremism” initiatives that are supposed to stymie radicalization within those communities.

Overall, the survey, which was conducted by The Polling Company for the Center for Security Policy (CSP), suggests that a substantial number of Muslims living in the United States see the country very differently than does the population overall.  The sentiments of the latter were sampled in late May in another CSP-commissioned Polling Company nationwide survey.

According to the just-released survey of Muslims, a majority (51%) agreed that “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to shariah.”  When that question was put to the broader U.S. population, the overwhelming majority held that shariah should not displace the U.S. Constitution (86% to 2%).

More than half (51%) of U.S. Muslims polled also believe either that they should have the choice of American or shariah courts, or that they should have their own tribunals to apply shariah. Only 39% of those polled said that Muslims in the U.S. should be subject to American courts.

Screen-Shot-2015-06-24-at-11.32.40-AM

These notions were powerfully rejected by the broader population according to the Center’s earlier national survey.  It found by a margin of 92%-2% that Muslims should be subject to the same courts as other citizens, rather than have their own courts and tribunals here in the U.S.

Even more troubling, is the fact that nearly a quarter of the Muslims polled believed that, “It is legitimate to use violence to punish those who give offense to Islam by, for example, portraying the prophet Mohammed.”

Screen-Shot-2015-06-24-at-11.32.25-AM

By contrast, the broader survey found that a 63% majority of those sampled said that “the freedom to engage in expression that offends Muslims or anybody else is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and cannot be restricted.”

Nearly one-fifth of Muslim respondents said that the use of violence in the United States is justified in order to make shariah the law of the land in this country.

Center for Security Policy President, Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., observed:

The findings of the Center for Security Policy’s survey of Muslims in America suggests that we have a serious problem.  The Pew Research Center estimates that the number of Muslims in the United States was 2.75 million in 2011, and growing at a rate of 80-90 thousand a year.  If those estimates are accurate, the United States would have approximately 3 million Muslims today.  That would translate into roughly 300,000 Muslims living in the United States who believe that shariah is “The Muslim God Allah’s law that Muslims must follow and impose worldwide by Jihad.”

Why Muslims in American prisons should be segregated from the general prison population

radicals-in-prison

One out of three African-American inmates in U.S. prisons convert to Islam while incarcerated. An estimated 35,000 – 40,000 inmates convert to Islam each year, and that 15% of the total U.S. prison population or 350,000 inmates are Muslim, with many of them radicalized.

Daily Caller  This is more than 18 times the national representation of Muslims in America, reported to be 0.8 percent. Prisons are churning out converts to Islam who are taught they are righteously entitled to control the religion, speech, and dress of family, co-workers and strangers.

muslim_inmates

Back in 2006, then FBI director Robert Mueller prophetically described the radical Islamist conversion machine operating throughout U.S. prisons, to a Senate committee. He said that prisons were a “fertile ground” for Islamic extremists, and that they targeted inmates for introduction to the militant Wahhabi and Salafist strains of Islam.

The recent so-called “lone wolf” terrorist attacks in Oklahoma City, New York, and just over our northern border in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, may be the product of such radicalization.

Beheaded by a convict who converted to Islam in prison

In April 2010, Larry James murdered his mother, pregnant wife, 7-month-old son, 3-year-old niece and 16-year-old niece for refusing to convert to Islam. James converted in 2007, while in a U.S. prison.

Then two months ago Colleen Hufford, a 54-year-old grandmother and factory worker in Oklahoma, was beheaded with a produce knife by Alton Nolen who likely converted to Islam in a U.S. prison. Nolen is being charged with workplace violence.

Last month NYPD officer Kenneth Healey, 25, was axed to death with a hatchet to the side of the head. He was not attacked by a “lone wolf,” but by ex-con Zale Thompson. New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton has called it a terrorist attack, and the NYPD might want to look at Thompson’s record in California where he did two brief terms in California prisons.

Zale Thompson, Muslim convert who attacked NYPD with hatchet

The key to conversion success is clear. Our government has been contracting and paying Muslim Brotherhood front groups, such as GSISS (The Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences) and ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) to screen and assign Muslim prison chaplains for at least 8 years.

While Egypt and Saudi Arabia have banned the Muslim Brotherhood, classifying it as a terror group, the White House, U.S. prisons, and the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security continue to work with Muslim Brotherhood groups.

The imam of the Newburgh mosque,Salahuddin Muhammad , where the Bronx-plot terror cell was organized has worked for more than 20 years in the New York state prison system converting inmates to Islam — and was hired by the radical Muslim chaplain banned for praising the 9/11 hijackers.

For example, Paul Pitts served 14 years in prison for murder, where he converted to Islam and became Imam Abdu-Shahid. He was paroled in 2001 and hired as a prison chaplain in 2007 with an annual salary of $49,471. In Feb 2010, he was caught trying to bring scissors and razor blades into the Manhattan Detention Complex.

A New York City corrections department source told the New York Post: “It’s a disgrace that taxpayers are funding Muslim chaplains who not only have criminal records, but also are promoting violence.”

Imam Zul-Qarnain Abu Shahid, 58, a Muslim cleric with the city Department of Corrections, was busted Wednesday for trying to sneak three razors and a pair of scissors into the Tombs prison in Manhattan

Abdu-Shahid’s boss – head chaplain Umar Abdul-Jalil – was hired at an annual salary of $76, 602 even though he served 14 years for dealing drugs. In 2006, he was suspended for two weeks without pay after declaring that “the greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House.” He continues to oversee 40 prison chaplains.

Norman Siegel, ACLU  with Radical Imam Abdul-Jalil who said the “greatest terrorists in the world occupy the White House” and urged Muslims in America to “stop letting the Zionists of the media dictate what Islam is to us.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, Wallace Gene Marks converted under Imam Umar while in prison for weapon possession. He was hired as a one of the first paid Muslim chaplains in 1975 and has hired nearly 45 chaplains. Imam Umar says that prison “is the perfect recruitment and training grounds for radicalism and the Islamic religion” and that 9/11 hijackers should be honored as martyrs. “Funded by the Saudi government he traveled often to Saudi Arabia and brought that country’s harsh form of Islam to New York’s expanding ranks of Muslim prisoners.”

A New York City Corrections source told the  New York Post: ”It’s a disgrace that taxpayers are funding Muslim chaplains who not only have criminal records, but also are promoting violence. “Ignoring these red flags under the aegis of political correctness is literally killing us.” Our taxpayer funded prisons have been co-opted by the leaders of Sharia-ism in America, the Muslim Brotherhood. More silence will likely mean the death of more innocent Americans.

OKLAHOMA: Renowned anti-Islam crusader and state lawmaker, John Bennett, to host Oct. 13th Town Hall with leading Islam expert Frank Gaffney

Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett has become the subject of controversy after exposing the ugly truth about Muslims and Islam. Now, the state representative is  organizing an event featuring members of the organized counterjihad movement.

(Naturally, Hamas-linked CAIR jihadists are foaming at the mouth over this anti-Islam town hall gathering)

Imagine  On Oct. 13, Rep. Bennett is co-hosting a (virtual) town hall meeting featuring leading expert on the threat to America of creeping Islamization and the Muslim Brotherhood, Frank Gaffney at Fairview Baptist Church in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Clare Lopez, former FBI special agent, who is employed by Gaffney’s think-tank Center for Security Policy, is also scheduled to take part along with Oklahoma Pastor Paul Blair of Reclaiming America for Christ, another co-sponsor of the event.

“We plan to continue to educate the public about the very real threat that terrorists present to the U.S.,” Bennett said about the meeting.

However, given Gaffney and Bennett’s past history, the meeting will almost surely manifest itself as a chance to spread the truth about Islam and the domestic threat that the presence of  even non-terrorist Muslims in America pose. The meeting appears to be in response to the tragic events (Tragic? Beheadings aren’t tragic, they are Islamic) last month at a Oklahoma food processing plant involving an assailant who is Muslim.

In a press release last week, Bennett laid out his plans to host an event to find out “Who are these people and why are they doing these terrible things to us?” This rhetoric is welcome considering Bennett has previously warned his constituents be “wary” of Muslim Americans.

This also is not the first time Bennett has associated with Gaffney and his ilk. Last year, Bennett, via his informal House Counterterrorism Caucus, sponsored a law enforcement training seminar that featured Gaffney, Lopez, and Jerry Boykin, a retired Lt. Gen. who argues the practice of Islam should not be protected under the First Amendment.

Bennett’s Counterterrorism Caucus colleague Rep. Dan Fisher is also co-hosting the event.
