A slick Islamist heads to jail--One down, many more to go
Jewish World Review ^ | 8-2-04 | Daniel Pipes

Posted on 08/03/2004 5:28:02 AM PDT by SJackson

In 2002, the spokesman for FBI director Robert Mueller memorably described the American Muslim Council (AMC) as the "the most mainstream Muslim group in the United States." A year later, the Catholic bishops called the AMC "the premier, mainstream Muslim group in Washington."

Its founder and long-time chief, Abdurahman Alamoudi, was a Washington fixture. He had many meetings with both Clintons in the White House and once joined George W. Bush at a prayer service. He arranged a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner for congressional leaders. He six times lectured abroad for the State Department and founded an organization to provide Muslim chaplains for the Department of Defense. One of his former AMC employees, Faisal Gill, serves as policy director at the Department of Homeland Security's intelligence division.

In brief, as the Washington Post describes him, Alamoudi was "a pillar of the local Muslim community."

I think he is the same one who met with Nancy Pilosi, the head Rat one who cannot shut her eyes.

Why the politicians continue to cuddle up to the religion of murder and terrorism is beyond me.

There is perhaps one and only one pro-American Islamic group in Northern VA, and even that one is dubious (run by Kamal Nawash, an attorney who recently has been after the Saudis about the inflammatory literature being provided to 1st graders in a local VA Islamic school).

Apart from that, there are no truly committed, pro-American Islamic groups in the DC Metro area. To one degree or another, every last one of them (and that includes the mosques) is pro-Islamist and pro-bin Laden.

Kamal Nawash isn't dubious in my mind. A little research will clear up any questions.
Should be a big 'Warning'/'Danger' sign across his posters.

CAIR and the AMC are slick proponents of radical Islam. Don't let their politeness fool you. Under other circumstances they would be perfectly prepared to behead you if they had the power. What they are is front groups on behalf of a totalitarian ideology as inmical to the American Way Of Life as Communism.

Yes, I've heard some of the criticisms. I was just using him as the only Muslim in Northern VA who's even mouthed something sensible.

The rest have been completely silent or (e.g. dar al Hijra mosque) actively complicit with the Islamists.

Why does it seem, that I can 'Google' someone, and find out they're dangerous or not to be trusted, but these other groups or organizations can't?

I don’t know about the dems, if you review yesterday’s thread, WHAT SAY YOU NOW, GROVER NORQUIST?, for Republicans (a very few) it’s apparently a matter of having a “big tent”.

Personally, I think it’s a matter of buying access, with money and potential votes, both sides of the aisle.

I hadn't read that. Thanks.
Norquist should be locked up, if only for stupidity, along with anyone else who was too damn lazy to check that guy out.

Republicans are just as guilty as the Democrats in appeasing "American" Mohammedans.

Start with right-wing Icon Grover Norquist, who is actually one of them.

One cannot be "Pro-America" and "pro-Islam" at the same time, as America is a secular state, and Islam calls for Islamic governance.

One cannot be a Mohammedan and not support an Islamic state.

"BUSH APPOINTEE ATTACKS REPUBLICAN ARAB-AMERICAN CANDIDATE

DANIEL PIPES: "Kamal Nawash, an immigration lawyer and legal director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) since 1997, has thrown his hat in the ring as a Republican candidate for state senator in the 31st district of Virginia. His campaign website offers stances only on the sort of issues a state senator might deal with (baseball stadium construction, traffic, property taxes, etc.) but, as a long-standing staffer of the extremist ADC and a colleague of the notorious Hussein Ibish, one cannot wonder what Nawash thinks on national issues such as the need to take steps to protect the country from Islamist terrorists who wish to enter it. (From Daniel Pipes' personal web log, September 10, 2003.)"

"how many candidates for state senator pontificate on national issues?"

Pontification not necessary.
Protection (of state) is.

Pipes is asking about what Nawash THINKS (and will Do) when it comes to protection of his state if he associates with "the notorious Hussein Ibish" and "was a long-standing staffer of the extremist ADC".

Really? What about this "raghead"?

I remember the same stories when I first came to the United States, and I endured the same treatments in school, as well, as work place and the general public. One thing I learned, as I try to inform other Americans that we are all not the same. Every patch of apples has it's 10% of bad core, and that is something you can never change whether in apples or humans. The good things that comes out of the whole thing, is that it also give the opportunity to meet good people who are willing to lend a hand, and who open to you and know that you are the human being as they are.

I, also, joined the Marine Corps when I was 17 and have served on active duty as well as the reserves since 1978. I am very proud of being a Marine, as much as I am proud of being an Arab-American. I tell people the reason I serve this great country, is because it gave everything I wanted and more, and it is giving my children the same. I serve this great country, because it allows me to maintain my heritage, to practice my religion, and maintain my freedom, as it is guaranteed to me by the same constitution that I swore to defend.

My daughter ran into the same situation after 9/11, but she stood up to everyone and ask them "My dad is serving and doing something about it, what is your dad is doing about it?" It shut them up, but I wish that there were no reason for her to even be approached by it.

I want to thank you for taking the time to develop this site and to allow the American people to know that we are, as they are PATRIOTIC and proud to be Arab-Americans.

Individual Islamists may appear law-abiding and reasonable, but they are part of a totalitarian movement, and as such, all must be considered potential killers. -Daniel Pipes

Oh, but they are so well-mannered, cute, and fuzzy!
