(Hartford-WTNH, July 3, 2005 7:00 PM) _ On this holiday weekend, thousands of Muslims gather in Hartford to learn more about living in America and still maintaining their faith.

Abdul Quadir Brula's family travelled from Albany, New York to Hartford today in search of answers.

"This is very important," says Abdul Quadir Brula.

Quadir Brula's family, and thousands of other Muslims are facing a huge challenge; how to bring up a family according to Islamic principles, while living in the United States as a US citizen.

"There are a few difficulties as well which we have to cope with."

Difficulties like their boys not participating in birthday parties at school because it's forbidden by Islam.

"There are many difficulties especially in public schools because there are many differences between US and Americans," says Huma Quadir, Albany, NY.

So this weekend more than 5,000 Muslims will listen to guest speakers, interactive messages.

"Islam is grossly misunderstood"

And shop among the 250-vendors inside the Connecticut Convention Center. All if it part of the Islamic Circle of North America Convention.

Ever since the terrorist attacks on September 11th of 2001, many Muslims say they feel shunned because of cultural needs many restaurants in Hartford were guided as to which foods the convention goers could eat.

And separate dining areas were set up in the convention center for Muslim men and women.

The mosloooms need to start worrying about our customs and forget about theirs, that was another world, it ain't here. They are in our country and need to adapt or get the hell out.

No it isn't. This is clearly organized by Islamists. They're constantly attempting to suggest that their "Islam" is the only legitimate version.

Well, the only real solution here is obvious, isn't it? I'm sure the ACLU will come a'callin' any minute now to right this terrible, outrageous affront to islam.

Well, their koran tells them to lie to the infidels, no?

You come to America but you don't want to be American.

Big Ceegar!!

Victor Hanson nails that exact point in "Mexifornia." And it's not simply the intransigence of the immigrants that is to blame; the liberal governments and educational institutions are enabling and promoting this nonsense.

The first clue this is bullship (the large ocean-going vessel that transports the steers to market) is;

"Muslims gather in Hartford to address living in America"
Later in the article we'll learn it's all about Americans learning being forced to let Muslims live here on their (Muslim) terms.

"On this holiday weekend, thousands of Muslims gather in Hartford to learn more about living in America and still maintaining their faith."
Yep ... you guessed it ... they use our holiday representing our forefather's oftimes bloody and fatal actions to be a free and independent nation to foist their restricting and hateful religion on us.

"Abdul Quadir Brula's family travelled from Albany, New York to Hartford today in search of answers."
What? You need answers to live in America as a Muslim? Check your religion, abdul ... YOU CAN"T DO IT !

"This is very important," says Abdul Quadir Brula."
My thought exactly.

"Quadir Brula's family, and thousands of other Muslims are facing a huge challenge; how to bring up a family according to Islamic principles, while living in the United States as a US citizen."

It friggin' can't be done!! One of us has to die, according to your religion, and YOU damned sure didn't come here to die, now, DIDJA'?

"There are a few difficulties as well which we have to cope with."
Translation ... we gotta change you guys a lot first. We'll start by gatting at your politicians.

"Difficulties like their boys not participating in birthday parties at school because it's forbidden by Islam."
Psst ... abdul ... whodoya think is going to invite them?

"There are many difficulties especially in public schools because there are many differences between US and Americans," says Huma Quadir, Albany, NY.
You're full of #h!t, Huma ... the government schools can't move fast enough to throw out Jesus in favor of your pedaphilic founder, Mohamad.

'So this weekend more than 5,000 Muslims will listen to guest speakers, interactive messages."
Damn ... I can't say what I want to, here.

"Islam is grossly misunderstood"
Wrong, camel breath ... we know and understand a lot about you.

"And shop among the 250-vendors inside the Connecticut Convention Center. All if it part of the Islamic Circle of North America Convention."Ye kinda' LIKE this capitalism stuff, doncha'? "Ever since the terrorist attacks on September 11th of 2001, many Muslims say they feel shunned because of cultural needs many restaurants in Hartford were guided as to which foods the convention goers could eat."
This sentence doesn't make sense as it stands, but ... my heart really goes out for you ... NOT.

"And separate dining areas were set up in the convention center for Muslim men and women."
Except for queers, we like our women ... very, very much and have no problem with including them in our (American) daily affairs.

So you see. Abdul ... we know you, we understand you and we can really get along IF ... you decide to BE American and not IN America.

..and don't piss us off either ... we've just about had it it with this multi-cultural $h!t.

American constitutional principles are used in this country, not barbaric Islamic principles.

It's the Sharia way or the highway, baby.

Who's laughing? I'm deadly serious. I really do expect the ACLU to step in any minute now and make case law against birthday parties conducted on public school grounds where islam would be offended. Hell, it may have happened already for all I know.

And sharks. And Natalee Halloway.

This reminds me of the summer before 9/11 when the media was focused on Chandra Levy and sharks.

Sorry, call someone who cares:

Islam, The Alleged Religion of Peace® ( TARP™ )? Click this picture:

No, I am not exaggerating. Click the pic, go to "last," and read backwards.
If you are not informed about this stuff, you will be made sick. If you are informed, you will be made mad, all over again.
