Skip to comments.Rick Perry, the Mosque and his agreement with Muslims
Posted on 06/30/2011 1:32:04 AM PDT by BereanBrain
Austin, Texas, 30 October 2009 At the invitation of Texas State Governor Rick Perry, Mawlana Hazar Imam traveled to Austin yesterday to sign an Agreement of Cooperation between the State of Texas and the Ismaili Imamat. During the visit, Hazar Imam and Governor Perry also held talks at the State Capitol on a range of issues of mutual interest
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.
Gee, I wonder why Christians don't get level of access? Where is our agreement, and visits....we just get pandering statements.
Did you know he also sent a brick to dedicate their new mosque?
And some nice pics you won’t see on Prick Perry’s website available at
Who are these great Muslim scientists and scholars? Beheaded before their time, perhaps? “Wisdom” and “cultural treasures” as well? Do tell, Gov. Pander, ...errr... Perry. Oh, “Kill the infidels” and “burquas” you say. Well, at least the charred ruins of Alexandria’s library is QUITE a monument, I must admit! Bob
We don't allow the Jivaro headhunters to practice their "religion"! Why the Slimes???? There's not much difference between them!
you won’t hear about this in the press.
They want us Republican to nominate a RINO, then just before the election they suddenly “find out” about his Muslim agreements, The TTC, Gardasil, the relatives who are lobbyists, etc etc.
That’s a “bye-bye, Rick” for me—though I was never pleased that Perry was being touted for president.
OMG. Rick Perry shook hands and signed a cultural exchange agreement with an Arab businessman?!
Damn. That is IT. I have HAD IT. I’m just going to vote Obama in 2012. < \sarcasm>
Anyone bother to look at this “Muslim”’s record? He is about as far removed from Osama bin Laden’s philosophy as James Madison is from Barack Hussein Obama: yes, both occupied the White House, but one was a protector of liberty and the other may as spit on our founding documents.
We Have PEACE in OUR TIME!!
dealing with muzzies is either Sedition or Treason... they all should be HAPPY than I’m not President!!
Another RINO snake in the grass McChurian candidate from hell, imho.
The problem is not and never was Osama Bin Laden’s “philosophy”.
The problem is the teachings actually in the Koran and the Hadith.
You get an F - in knowledge of Islam.
Moderate Islam is as acceptable as moderate euthenasia.
“Rick Perry is a SLICK POLITICIAN.”
Scratch him off my Presidential list. We have already seen what a Muslim enabler in the White House can do.
“Muslim scientists, scholars, throughout history, and for that matter the cultural treasures that stand today in testament to their wisdom.”
What cultural treasures?
Thanks for adding a little insight into this. PDS should now stand for Perry Derangement Syndrome as well as Palin DS. There are many here whom I suspect of being Democrat moles.
However, Perry should be made aware that the mathematical and scientific advances attributed to the Arabs ended with Mohammed's arrival on the scene. I do not object to his being polite and complimentary to his visitors, keeping in mind that he was not so with Obama, a good thing. Some here in Texas criticized him for speaking Spanish, in which he is fluent, at an appearance in Los Angeles. That is how far the PDS has gone with some.
I approve of Perry though he may not be perfect. I would be happy with him as our nominee, just as I would with most of the others, except Romney, but I would take Romney over Obama.
What a crock! Who are these scientists and scholars? (You can't be much of a scholar if you are only allowed to read one book.) What does Perry want next: a book about great Kenyan philosophers? The "cultural treasures" such as they are, have been built on top of some vanquished peoples former treasures. Were talking about an entire group of people that would still be using camels for transportation during the day and for amusement at night were it not for their contact with the West.
Anyone bother to look at this Muslims record? He is about as far removed from Osama bin Ladens philosophy as James Madison is from Barack Hussein Obama: yes, both occupied the White House, but one was a protector of liberty and the other may as spit on our founding documents
Gee Don’t all Muslims read the same Book? The Koran?
Does this guy have a different version?
I think someone needs to rethink their position.
ALLEN WEST GETS IT:
He's one of the few who get it. View this short video where he states most eloquently that Muslims- ALL Muslims are the enemy.
He has lasted so long because he has been fortunate in his election opponents. He isn't that bad, but I just don't see him as the man for the times. Put him in Washington and he will fit right in. He and Romney have more in common than good hair.
People outside Texas who are promoting him for president don't know him.
I support Rick Perry’s entry into the race to the extent that he will split the Romney votes.
You now, I never thought of that. Perry may be the thing that insures a Bachmann, Palin or Cain.
(BTW, Bachmann/Cain is my dream team.)
You either didn’t read carefully, or don’t want to understand. It’s not that Perry has a Muslim friend, it’s that he FLEW DOWN for the groundbreaking of a mosque when he would never do such a thing for a new church. Moreover, his vomit-worthy comments about Muslim scholars and scientists ,and “cultural treasures” of this religion should be a red flag for those of us considering him. Bob
I guess you *are* a recovering democrat, given that you can’t see that Rick Perry is treating the Imam “special”
BTW, you premise (that if you don’t vote for Rick Perry you are voting for Obama) is a classic Straw Man argument.
It’s a tactic demo liberals use to change the subject when they are losing.
You ought to know someone before you make such sweeping comments regarding their intentions/character/attitude. I’ve been here many years, and am as strong a conservative as anyone on this board.
But you’re welcome to your opinion, however wrong it may conflict with the facts.
And you implied that being against Rick Perry meant one must support Obama.
That’s a rather bold statement, no?
The difference I have seen in Muslims is their interpretations of jihad. Some interpret it as the Wahabbis do - convert, be subservient to Muslims and pay the bribe, or we will kill you. Others interpret it as the need to try to peacefully convert non-Muslims to Islam, much as Christians do. Many are luke warm Muslims just as many Christians are. Not all are avid readers of the Koran. Not all regularly attend the mosques or are vigilant in their daily prayers.
However, the Communists are a minority, too, and look how the few have subverted the many and have moved far in taking over this country. The minority Muslims are the same and we must be continually alert to their plans. The Communists are using the Muslims toward their end.
What part of that do you have trouble comprehending, Governor ?
Even better Look at the Homo’s and see how few have screwd up this country.
It is all related. See Communists Goals, a few of which are:
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
If you would rather stay at home or vote some loser third party candidate, then you do support Obama.
Might have been that way some time ago but not now. They have all signed, sealed a deal of inclusion...as all followers of Muhammed, the Koran and Islam.
