Evangelical Rick Perry's promotion of filtered islamic history is troubling to most American voters!
Patriot Statesman ^ | 8/15/2011 | Aisha Foda

Posted on 08/15/2011 1:51:15 PM PDT by AnthonyDavar

As an evangelical Christian, Rick Perry would be wise to at least read this detailed report from islamic writings on the prescribed pedophilia and sexual abuse of little girls and women of all ages before he promotes indoctrinating Texas children on a filtered islamic history! Does Christ following Rick Perry know what the founder of islam did when he was over 50 years old in his sexual relationship with 8/9 year old girls like Aisha? While the leftist

leaning Houston chronicle might be comforted by Rick’s muslim ties, the majority of American voters would be horrified to know that trusted original islamic writings describe in detail how their founder was having sex with a little girl while she was playing with her dolls. Sadly Rick Perry seems to be following in the footsteps of George W. Bush in wrongly believing islam is a “religion of peace”!

BS. Perry is just talking about teaching the rise and expansion of Islam without any teaching OF islam.

Our history lessons have focused primarily on western culture, and has be woefully inadequate in dealing with some of the other major civilizations.

Describing the importance of the agreement, Governor Perry explained that “traditional Western education speaks little of the influence of Muslim scientists, scholars, throughout history, and for that matter the cultural treasures that stand today in testament to their wisdom.”

And Perry supports the Sharia promoting Aga Khan

http://governor.state.tx.us/news/press-release/3149/

If Perry is cozying up to Muslims this much as Gov of Texas, how much more would he do so as President?

Sure, and you'll be showing some kind of evidence, right?
No? You mean you're pulling this factoid out from between your buttocks?

Does Christ following Rick Perry

Perry is pretty good, but I doubt Jesus Christ is a follower.

Maybe on Twitter, but I doubt it.

voters would be horrified to know that trusted original islamic writings describe in detail how their founder was having sex with a little girl while she was playing with her dolls.

I really don't see what Justin Bieber has to do with this.

Well all I know is Perry called for a day of prayer and fasting by all Governors. Proclaimed the name of Jesus Christ openly. Attended his function and prayed openly to Jesus Christ and on the day he announced his intent to run, it rained for at around 3 hours all across the Dallas metroplex and we broke our streak of 100 degree days.

In this Official Texas Speech, Rick Perry quotes the Koran, and praises Muslims and Islam....Grovels calling Muslim leader “His Highness” and “Rare is the religious leader whose vision is so extraordinary that his appeal transcends nationality, ethnicity and faith traditions. His Highness, the Aga Khan, is one such extraordinary leader. “

http://governor.state.tx.us/news/speech/5156/

I bet you Perry backers don’t have the COURAGE to read the speech.

I wonder what the Bible says about leaders who praise other Gods.

How can God be pleased when Rick praises the very people who are bent on destroying the children of Israel?

What do you say about his words about Islam posted here?

http://governor.state.tx.us/news/speech/5156/

Do you have the courage to read it, and if you have read it, how can one man believe in Jesus Christ as savior, and praise a religion that promotes it’s spread through the sword?

Or do you believe Islam is a “religion of peace” too?

Still, part of the REAL history of Islam....taken from authentic, fully ISLAMIC sources...is that Mohammed was a pedophile pervert (besides being a bloody murderer, robber, liar, etc.).

Most educated people, who think they know the history of Mohammed and Islam, do not know that. And is certainly is not in the curriculum.

wrongly believing islam is a “religion of peace”!

1) the 6th pillar of Islam is jihad
2) the ultimate goal of Islam is world domination

Neither of these is compatible with peace.

Article is a bit frenzied about the Texas governor's association with Islam. I don't see that Perry has done anything inherently terrible. His apparent obsequious attitude toward some Islamic bigwigs is slightly annoying but not unusual for a politician sealing a deal with them. I don't expect Rick Perry or any other governor to 'bash' Islam. However, this kind of hard scrutiny is what I like to see, even if I dismiss most of it. Because I'm not terribly familiar with Governor Perry I want to see him vetted - by conservatives. Right now, Rick Perry sounds great. He says all the right things. So what? 'Talk is cheap'. I'll be watching to see if the leftmedia ignores Perry or attacks him, as they've attacked Sarah Palin and lately, Michele Bachmann - but not Mitt Romney. If they don't attack Perry, I'll remain skeptical of the Governor as a TEA party conservative and stick with Sarah Palin, my first choice, by a landslide.

Who is the author of this article? There isn’t a listing for Aisha Foda in the author list. Is that you?

Interesting to note that Ron Paul is running away with the poll....

great post. honest and fair.
i also consider Perry to be my 1st or 2nd choice now.

but this is not the first time, i am turned OFF by his followers here, who make a HABIT of engaging honest questions with vicious personal attacks.

Perry DID quote the Quran in honor of that Imam. this is an area that concerns me, and these are fair questions for vetting.

instead, mnehring gets personal AND disgusting:

“It seems the author has a pretty strong mental image of Mohammed’s buggering kids as though he visualizes it quite often.”

Exactly, so the author should apologize to the governor for his accusations of accepting those tenets in which were never mentioned in the governor's original quotes. The author created the narrative around a couple of sentences that falsely implied that Governor Perry accepted and praised those things. Pretty nasty if I do say so myself. Far nastier than my little object lesson in the prior post.

It is ironic that Islam actually represented a step up for women among the pagan Arabs. Exposure of unwanted female infants was a common practice among those tribes. At least Islam prohibited that practice.

Which is not to say it is not an Antichrist religion and now dangerous to the world.

This is just another area that stands in contrast to the public image of Perry that he is selling. Maybe not all muslims have been terrorists... but all terrorists have been muslims. I find muslims and islam to be incompatible with ALL western culture... and I refuse to give up my culture because muslims are offended by it. All of islam is an offense. I have read the koran and the hadith... Allen West has too... and West agrees with what I am sying here.

And Perry supports the Sharia promoting Aga Khan...

"The Āgā Khān is particularly interested in the elimination of global poverty; the advancement of women; the promotion of Islamic culture, art, and architecture; and promoting pluralistic values in society. He is the founder and chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network, one of the largest private development networks in the world, which toils towards environment, health, education, architecture, culture, microfinance, rural development, disaster reduction, the promotion of private-sector enterprise and the revitalisation of historic cities."

Doesn't sound like the traditional Sharia promoting agenda...

But leave that aside for a moment. Just what, in your exalted opinion, should be the position of any elected official toward Muslims in his state/community? Should he try to pass laws against them? Should he denounce them as pagans and barbarians? What is the proper approach to such a sticky situation, seeing as they are American citizens as well, and their religion is not supposed to have any bearing on the quality of their representation by elected officials.

By the way, no one has yet provided any evidence that Perry supports Sharia - this is another one of those pathetic "guilt by association" drive-by attacks. "Oh no, he said something nice about a Muslim! He is going to allow Sharia to take over our legal system!"

If we somehow manage to lose this election, it will be because of things like this. We will have convinced the independents that we cannot or will not distinguish between radical terrorists and Muslims who are loyal citizens, or between illegal immigrants and Hispanics in general. In short, we will have persuaded them that conservatives really are ignorant and intolerant. Sad.

If anyone could show me where this particular person, the Aga Khan, has spoken in favor of Sharia law replacing the American legal system, or where he has supported the jihadists, or where he has called America "the Great Satan", then you might have an argument. But it sounds like the only argument is that he is a Muslim. If you are going to hate and distrust all Muslims just because they are Muslim, that is going to put you at odds with about 1/6th of the world's population.

Nope, I believe America is a Christian nation.

If you want it to be a muslim nation, keep voting for people who help Muslims build mosques in Texas, and sign agreements with foreign muslim leaders.

Perry has not helped build a Christian Church, dedicated any bricks to it, signed any agreements with Christian leaders.....

Instead he gets followers merely by planning a “prayer” meeting — note 8+years AFTER election as governor but slightly before annoucncing his running for president.

Nothing here but smoke screens......Americans are concerned about jobs..jobs..jobs..economy..economy..economy...that's the bottom line...the rest is silly smoke and mirrors.

Perry has continued to have the RIGHT environment for Texas jobs and Texas economy...the rest is NOT what Americans are concerned about...besides...as Jack Wheeler has stated in an article on Friday..a snippet from his article on the moslem thingy...

Now we get to talk bout Rick Perry. He's running, his announcement tomorrow in South Carolina timed to blow all the other candidates scrambling for votes in Iowa's meaningless straw poll out of the water. He doesn't take prisoners. He's also the next president.

Actually, though, this isn't about him, but rather the profound mendacious stupidity of his Dem critics.

That libsite linked above begging the PIAPS to run, Salon, put up this hilarious hit-piece Wednesday (8/09), Rick Perry: The Pro-Sharia Candidate? The kid who wrote it, Justin Elliott, is wonderfully ignorant of what he's blathering about.

His accusation is that Perry is buds with the Aga Khan. Somehow, that means he will promote the imposition of radical Moslem sharia law upon America if president. The Aga Khan is indeed, as Elliott says, the spiritual leader of a form of Islam called Ismailism, and is revered by the some 20 million Ismailis round the world.

We talked about the Ismailis in The Pamir Knot (September 2010). We learned that they "believe in a mystical, peaceful form of Islam that is the antithesis of hate, violence, and Sharia imperialism that infuses mainstream Sunni or Shia Islam."

Further:

"There are no mosques in the Pamirs, because Ismailis have no mosques. They pray privately - men and women together. Ismaili men are extremely respectful of women. The thought of treating women as an inferior form of humanity as does mainstream Islam is as disgusting to Ismaili men as it is to us. No Ismaili man would even think of demanding his wife wear a veil or cover her face in public...

"Up in these lost mountains on the roof of the world, there is a form of Islam that should be a model for Moslems all over the world, a moral contrast to the medieval evil of Wahhabi Islam of the Saudis, the Deobandi Islam of the Taliban, or the Khomeini Islam of the Mullahs of Iran."

Which is why the Islamist missionaries of sharia hate Ismailis more than us infidels. So good for Perry being friends with Ismailis. To claim this makes him "pro-sharia" is a twisted joke.

But maybe Elliott wants the joke to be on us. Maybe he does know the difference between Ismailis and Wahhabis, and is counting on conservatives being ignorant enough not to know. His goal is to smear Perry, and is hoping conservative ignorance will achieve it.

Let's not let this lib smear artist get away with it.

************

There is, however, one Republican governor being urged to run for president who is pro-Sharia: New Jersey's Chris Christie.

When criticized for appointing a Moslem Brotherhood lawyer, Sohail Mohammed, to the New Jersey Superior Court, he spouted the accusations of "Islamophobia" he learned from Grover Norquist, called his critics "crazies," and declared "this sharia law business is just crap."

Jihad Watch's Robert Spencer notes that "What's crap is the idea that Christie is fit to be president." Daniel Pipes states what is now obvious, that "Christie will never become president." Stick to New Jersey, Chris. Just like you promised.

Really ?? Well Your Islam is still in the 7th century, you need to wake up,

Omar M. Ahmad, Chairman Emeritus of the Board is described as a well-known activist and community leader in the San Francisco Bay Area. He said the following at the Islamic Conference in Freemont, California, in July of 1998, "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

So Christians are Beheading People and stoning woman to death,how about flying aircraft into our buildings??? Europe is a great example of these savages in a modern culture.

Nope, I believe America is a Christian nation.

So do you believe that means that no other religions should have any rights here? That they should be treated as enemies of the state? Because that is what it sounds like.

Really ?? Well Your Islam is still in the 7th century, you need to wake up,

My Islam? Another attempt at "guilt by association", I see. No, it is not my Islam, and I do not agree with anything about it. But as a Christian, my responsibility is to be a witness to them, to try to see their souls saved. As an American, one of my responsibilities is to see that no American citizen is persecuted for their religious beliefs - because my beliefs could be next. It is also my responsibility to do what I can to see that religious beliefs that are in opposition to the Constitution do not supplant our legal and political system.

Omar M. Ahmad, Chairman Emeritus of the Board is described as a well-known activist and community leader in the San Francisco Bay Area. He said the following at the Islamic Conference in Freemont, California, in July of 1998, "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth."

Personally, this statement sounds like it comes very close to teaching sedition. But I am not going to presume that every Muslim in the country holds the same viewpoint.
