Surge in Anti-Muslim Incidents Reported
The Washington Post ^ | September 19, 2006 | Michelle Boorstein

Posted on 09/19/2006 5:49:11 AM PDT by McBuff

A national Muslim advocacy organization yesterday blamed a "negative and politically charged" environment on the Internet and talk radio for the 30 percent jump in anti-Muslim incidents reported to the group last year.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations received 1,972 complaints of harassment, violence and discriminatory treatment in 2005, up from 1,522 in 2004, according to an annual report released yesterday.

Any word of protest about the damage being done to Islam via the behavoir of those who profess they are following the teachings of Islam? None? Have any of the so-called "anti-Muslim" incidents included the shooting in the back of a muslim cleric? No? Are there any mosques in flames?. . Hmmmmmm. ..

Perhaps they should start to get the hint that their welcome is wearing thin.

No worries. Their elected officials here in the socialist-communist democratic party here in America will create more and more hate, mean, ruffled feathers laws to protect their beloved Islumic murders.

These numbers for CAIR have been proven to be made up nonsense, time and time again. And yet they keep shoveling them out to credulous reporters, who can't be bothered to check.

Well, any time I see a woman in a hijab I roll my eyes and think 'what an idiot'! When I'm behind the car with vanity license plate SHARIA (I have actually seen this vehicle) I may be inclined to tailgate a little bit. According to CAIR those are 'incidents'. And since this report comes from CAIR, it has all the validity of a three-dollar bill!

If some Muslime tries to take out the Pope or if another attack happens on US soil, expect that number to jump to 200%

Aggressive ideologies such as Communism, Nazism and now, radical Islam have frequently employed the tactic of claiming to be "victims", while fomenting violence against those they accuse. Communists targeted the "bourgeosie", and Nazis blamed the Jews. Radical Muslims now blame everyone who is not a radical Muslim and issue threats and demands all the while. History repeats.

To Muslim, if it advances Islam, lying is a mitzva.

"...blamed a "negative and politically charged" environment on the Internet and talk radio for the 30 percent jump in anti-Muslim incidents reported to the group last year. "

First, I agree with you. No mention of the evil done in the name of islam as being part of the problem. The problem is the infidels, according to this group and CAIR, and any other muslim you care to ask.
Second, who can believe them? muslims lie and then lie about lying. It's in their book that it's ok to lie to infidels. So, are incidents against muslims up? I don't know, but I do know I don't believe this bunch of pond scum.
And finally, I'm not a big fan of vigilantes. I understand the problems that come from that. But, in this PC world, maybe that's just what it's going to take? Let these death cult members know that we aren't all signed up for dhimmitude.

I think one incident that is likely to happen is that fat spokesman Ibraham will be harpooned by mistake by an eskimo.

I wonder if this report includes the dirty looks I gave the two women wearing habibjs (sp?) at the mall yesterday.

Then there were the 2 fat black women wearing long flowery dresses who were talking in some foreign language (way too loud) that sounded like ducks quacking. I gave them the skunk eye but stopped short of telling them to shut up and catch a boat home like I would have preferred.

These people are WAY to sensitive and touchy.

If they can't fit it, they need to go back to whatever hellhole they came from.

Talk radio? Who else hears this all the time? That talk radio is to blame for inflaming these actions? Me thinks the libs are going to try to take it down...intelligent people know that the islamic murdres that have taken place in the past few days might have something to do with our attitude towards them...not to mention their threats against the holy father.

Don't get angry with my response, please, but do understand. I constantly see comments like this one above..."If one more thing happens...etc., etc., ad nauseum...." and nothing substantial is really ever done. Muslims still live here. They're still allowed to make rash comments, etc., ad nauseum. When is it going to stop? Really stop?

Of course they are. They have been working on it for a long time. Then they thought Err-America would be the answer, (pun recognized). Err-America is now DOA. So, the libs are left with their only tool that works consistently. Legislate and regulate anything they don't like.

Council on American-Islamic Relations received 1,972 complaints of harassment, violence and discriminatory treatment

897 dirty looks, 544 blog posts, 320 muttered insults and flipping the bird, 150 insolent infidels who refused to step off the sidewalk to make way for the prophet's faithful, 60 inconveniences at the airport, and 1 employer who refused to grant a request to take off the entire month of Ramadan, with pay.

Surge in Anti-Muslim Incidents Reported

The world is drowning in horrific, violent and deadly Anti-Jewish, Anti-Christian, Anti-Hindu and Anti-everyone-else incidents by Muslims. And this is the headline? It's like a headline during Noah's flood saying "Dry Spell Continues on Mt. Ararat" on an article failing to even mention the flood!

there is no such thing as a radical muslim. you either accept that the koran and the teachings of Mo are the word of g=d and follow the example of the perfect man (slavery, lieing to non muslims, child marriage, violence, etc) or you are a heretic and are not really a muslim. you are just pretending to be one so you are not killed by your neighbors as an apostate and heretic.

True

It NEVER ceases to amaze me the number of people in our society who act like they know ANYTHING about "terrorism" who have read neither Mao or Che. It would be like professing to know about Christianity without having actually read the Bible.

There is no such thing as a radical muslim.

As dangerous as it has become in our time, Islam is not quite a monolith. There are sects that interpret the Koran far more generously than others, substituting the figurative for the literal in order to accomodate modern realities and the perceived necessity of accepting other peoples' belief systems. Those who I term "radicals" are those who insist not only on the literal word, but who harbor a militant imperative to kill or convert non-believers to it.

A note to CAIR:
When you take care of all the imans who preach hate against me;
All or the Muslim terrorists who want to kill me because I think Muhammad was just a failed merchant who created a religion to justify his dishonest trade practices;
All the other scum your religion of peace has produced;
I’ll still expect eight hours work for eight hours pay…
And no prayer breaks

I suspect that those who intrepret the Koran figuratively as you suggest, only do so as a means of obeying the Koranic decree of lying to infidels until they reach sufficient numbers to where that is no longer necessary.

To be a member of the literal believing and largest sects (sunni and shiite) you agree on all of the tenets of the faith as I have mentioned. They make up 85-90% of islam or about 1,000,000,000 (billion) of the followers. I will go along with the peaceful sects and live with them in peace after the others are rotting under glass. And that is the BIG picture. Don't worry about the dog until you have cured the rabies.

You also are not figuring in the tenets of islam to support with all you can the mujihadeen who are doing the fighting that you can not do. They have every angle covered to support your death or conversion. So die or resist, you will not be allowed to live free. Islam means submission learn the 5 pillars and pray 5 times a day Also when the 90% have taken over even those peaceful sects you think are out there will be terminated for heresy.
