Even with the current and ongoing threats from Islamic terrorists, we as a people continue to be assaulted by the Kumbaya (a widely-used misnomer for “come by here”) group’s demands for political correctness. At the risk of our very survival, we are no longer supposed to identify our enemies. Instead, the liberal and leftist head-in-the-sand crowd tells us “it isn’t nice to call people bad names”.
Capitalizing on these liberal ‘useful-idiots’, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has even chastised President Bush for using the term “Islamic-fascists”. Of note, one of CAIR’s founders Nihad Awad has repeatedly proclaimed his support for terrorist Hamas and has refused to condemn terrorist Hezbollah. Awad was also the Public Relations Director for the International Association of Palestine (IAP), which is widely described as “the voice of Hamas in America”. The founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, Ghassan Elashi, was a member of Hamas, involved with the terrorist-funding “charity” the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development and was convicted along with his brothers of channeling funds to Hamas in 2005. Many others within the ranks of CAIR have been or are currently also associated with the IAP or directly with Hamas. And CAIR is one of the groups that want to cloud the minds of Americans and the world as to who the real terrorists are. It makes sense—doesn’t it?
If the Islamists can remove the association of “terrorism” from “Islam”, via their continued admonitions against it, their job of manipulating the world’s population toward embracing Islam will be affected far more easily. Just as mindless hatred for the Western world (with Israel and all Jews at the forefront of the diatribe) taught to children in Wahabee schools, their inculcations against placing responsibility for terrorism where it belongs will have worked. It may even save them some money in bullets and swords. It also strongly sounds as if they are attempting to obscure their Koran’s teaching of “convert or die”.
Hoping to continue to rely upon our leftist brethren to agree with them, Muslim leaders call the usage of Islamo-fascist “hate speech”. This is, of course, nuts. Would they approve of changing the term to encompass all Muslims? I doubt it. The term Islamo-fascist is both descriptive of the worldwide terrorist threat and enemy and accurate in its usage. These are the individuals who support terrorist Islamic groups—or are terrorists themselves. They are members of the state of Islam and are pushing and preaching for a centralized autocratic Islamic government headed by an Islamic dictatorial leader. This is the correct definition of an Islamic-fascist. On a side note, a recent Pew poll found that 81% of Muslims in the UK consider themselves Muslims first—then British citizens. In an interview of Muslim British citizens, conducted by Bob Baer, it was found that these were advocating and preparing a jihad against the entire Western world—including their adopted country.
Should we politically-correct-indoctrinated people remove the term Islamo-fascist? Absolutely not! It has been said repeatedly, most recently by Rep Peter King (R-NY), “not all Muslims are terrorists but, all terrorists are Muslims”. This is a fact. Let’s not let another truth be flushed down the toilet, in favor of protecting terrorists.
