US Muslims Gear up for Nov. Elections (Registration booths in Mosques)

US Muslims Gear up for Nov. Elections

DALLAS — American Muslims have set up voter registration booths in mosques across the United States to encourage fellow Muslim voters to sign up for the November mid-term elections.

"We have set up booths in 150 mosques across the country in the past two weeks," Mukit Hossain, a political consultant to the Muslim American Society which is championing the drive, told Reuters Saturday, September 30.

American Muslims have also established a website to enable Muslim voters to register online.

Hossain said about 10,000 were estimated to have been registered to date, expecting "tens of thousands" more to be signed up before the November mid-term elections.

There are over two million registered Muslim voters in the United States.

The November elections are crucial in deciding which of the Republicans or the Democrats would control Congress during President George W. Bush's final two years in office.

"We have looked and said do we have enough Muslims to impact this race," Hossain said.

"And secondly what are the issues, how important are they for the Muslim community and where do the candidates stand?"

Analysts expect Democrats to wrestle control of the House of Representatives and make significant gains in the Senate during the November 7 elections over public dissatisfaction with Bush's domestic policies and the Iraq war.

All 435 House seats, 34 of 100 Senate seats and 36 governorships are up for grasp in the November elections.

Crucial Votes

The US Muslim drive is also targeting areas where a few voters can determine the outcome of the November race.

"The Virginia Senate race is another one because you have 52,000 Muslim voters there and in a tight race they can make a difference," added Hossain, who is also president of the Muslim American Political Action Committee.

The Muslim move is believed to be echoing a tactic employed by evangelical Christians to support conservative Republican candidates.

But Hossain said American Muslims were not simply copying this strategy but felt compelled to take their political activism to the mosque in the wake of 9/11 attacks.

Politically motivated Christians have for the past three decades been using the pulpit as a platform to get voters to the polls to support conservative candidates.

A survey of Muslim voters last year showed the political issues that concerned them most were the perceived erosion of civil liberties since the 9/11 attacks, the hardening of immigration laws and US foreign policy in the Middle East, Hossain said.

The next priorities on their list are education and health care, which are the mainstream middle-class concerns.

Though there is no scientific count of Muslims in the US, the six to seven million is the most commonly cited figure.

Fears

Hossain also said Muslims in some areas fear that neo-conservative and right-wing candidates would beat moderate ones, counting on the anti-Muslim drive that gained momentum in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

In District 8 in Arizona, for instance, Muslims had concerns about the anti-immigration tone of Republican candidate Randy Graf, who is running to replace an outgoing moderate Republican in a closely watched House contest.

Muslims are also concerned about the record of Republican Sen. George Allen of Virginia on civil liberties, Hossain maintained.

In August, a USA Today/Gallup poll showed that 39 percent of Americans said they feel prejudiced toward Muslims.

In its annual report on the status of US Muslims, CAIR said earlier this month that discrimination and hate crimes against Muslims in the United States have surged by almost 30 percent in 2005.

Funny the article doesn't exactly say which way they are inclined to vote. But I have an inkling.

Dems are winning -- the dead can vote two or three times due to no voter ID, illegal aliens are voting, felons get voting rights restored and now muzzies are voting.

Yep, toast.

Communists remaining in Russia call themselves "conservative." Communists in China over 60 years of age call themselves "conservative." Muslims will not vote according to what may be good for America, but for what they think (Islamic mindset)will be good for the Islamic republics of the middle east and central Asia.

And it proves that immigration no longer has any connection with the spirit of Ellis Island, and every time I hear someone refer to Ellis Island in support of opening our borders today, I want to puke on their ignorant shoes.

So instead they march in lockstep with liberal American Jews?

I suspect the real reason they don't vote Republican is that they don't support the War on Terror, and more than a few of them pray daily to Allah that we will lose that war and they long for the days when Sha'ria law replaces the Constitution.

And, I supposed conservative Republican candidates are the "right-wing candidates."

I have had enough of the hypocrisy and don't want to fight against putting the booths in the mosques.
Rather, I want the booths in every church and for volunteers to help with "get out the vote" drives! Time to say enough and play their game on this one.

According to census figures about 1.5 million blacks are Muslims. CAIR is already learning about American politics when they cite anti-Islamic acts --- FIRST LESSON: Assume the role of VICTIM. Nothing plays better in politics than the victimization game.

As their numbers increase they'll be able to demand affirmaive action!

American Muslims have also established a website to enable Muslim voters to register online.

BS, you can't register on-line in Texas. The most you can do is download the registration application form. (It's in PDF) you still have to mail it in. You can get the same form sent to you by calling a n 800 number, or sending in a postcard which you can get from the driver's license/testing locations. You have to provide your TX driver's license number, or TX ID number if you don't drive. There are other ways to register, but IIRC, they require showing up at the county courthouse or sub-courthouse. (The sub-courthouse just date stamps it, and sends it on to the County registrar's office at the county courthouse/seat). I just went through the process, since I moved, and got the certificate back just a couple of weeks ago. I just got a cancellation notice from the county where I live before (Bexar) before I moved to this county. (Bell).

You are perfectly free to do that. In most states anyway. In Texas, anyone can conduct a "voter registration" drive. All it takes is a supply of the registration forms, or the postcards you send to get a form. In the former case you can fill it out for the wanna be voter, and have him/her sign it. Then you send them off to the county registrar of voters. The same as if you'd gotten the form off the 'net or from the DMV, or by calling the registrar's office and asking for one to be sent out.

What you can't do, and the muzzies probably do, is advocate for party or a candidate. Issues can be discussed.

By our definition (family, abortion etc) they are. But they are also the rug traders a.k.a. negotiators of the world and they recognize a VERY important fact about the U.S. Namely, the Dems are the party of NO RELIGION; of complete secularism. The Muslims recognize that, at this stage of their plan, to place secularists in positions of power is an important step because people without ANY faith or beliefts are EASIER to convert to Islam. In fact, the secularists will simply say, "So what's the big deal? If it makes them happy I'll say I'm a Muslim. It doesn't matter anyway" In short, create a vacuum that you can later fill.

Fifth column PING

"The Virginia Senate race is another one because you have 52,000 Muslim voters there and in a tight race they can make a difference," added Hossain, who is also president of the Muslim American Political Action Committee.

Besides the fact they endorsed Kerry in 04 (gee, I wonder why?), here's some background on MAPAC, Mukit Hossain, their associates and recruitment activities:

Source: Kingdom of the Illegals, FrontPageMagazine, By Paul Sperry. May 17, 2006

[Mukit Hossain's] not just any activist. Born in Bangladesh, Hossain also runs a shadowy Muslim charity in Herndon which recently had its accounts closed by Wachovia bank due to suspicious activity related to possible money-laundering. The Foundation for Appropriate and Immediate Temporary Help, or FAITH, received a $150,000 donation last year from a front group run by Saudi bagman M. Yacub Mirza, whose home and offices were raided by federal agents after 9/11. FAITH helped establish the Project Hope and Harmony.

Mirza, a native of al-Qaida hotbed Karachi, Pakistan, is said to act on behalf of Saudi millionaire and al-Qaida financier Yassin al-Qadi. He lives in Herndon in a two-story house on a wooded lot on a private drive (known as a "pipe stem") off a cul-de-sac called Safa Court in a small, secluded subdivision. His neighbors include fellow Islamists Jamal Barzinji and Taha Jaber al-Alwani. Federal law enforcement documents describe Barzinji as "not only closely associated with PIJ [Palestinian Islamic Jihad], but also with Hamas," both officially designated terrorist groups. He's also closely associated with convicted terrorist Abdurahman Alamoudi, one of al-Qaida's top fund-raisers in the U.S.

The other neighbor, al-Alwani, is an alleged unindicted co-conspirator in the Sami al-Arian terror case. He allegedly gave at least $50,000 in jihad money to convicted terrorist al-Arian's PIJ front group in Florida. Court records say the money was sent to al-Arian "to support suicide bombings."

The three men, none of whom have been charged with a crime, control some 40 Muslim businesses, charities and think tanks -- or more precisely, shells, fronts and cut-outs -- known collectively by law enforcement as the Saudi-backed "Safa group." Their offices are located primarily at 555 Grove St. in Herndon. The Muslim World League, a Saudi-based charity linked to al-Qaida, originally set up its U.S. branch at that address with the help of Mirza.

Additional Safa group offices are located directly across Grove Street in another raided building. That's where Hossain's FAITH keeps its office. In fact, it's upstairs on the second floor -- right next door to the U.S. headquarters of the notorious International Institute of Islamic Thought, a think tank which espouses Wahhabi dogma and has allegedly funneled money to terrorist groups. After 9/11, its offices were raided by the feds along with the tenants of the non-descript office building across the street. A former IIIT official, Tarik Hamdi, is said to have delivered a battery for a satellite phone used by Osama bin Laden to coordinate and order the African embassy bombings....

FAITH, which helps runs the Hispanic day-labor site, operates a Muslim thrift shop on the first floor of the same 500 Grove St. building....

But recently, FAITH has become unusually interested in helping Hispanic illegal aliens.

In addition to running their hiring site, FAITH's Hossain has organized feasts for hundreds of illegals during Thanksgiving, rounding them up and feeding them an intentionally nontraditional Middle Eastern dinner of beef kebabs and rice (instead of turkey and dressing) at Zuhair's Cafe in Herndon. He and other FAITH workers also gave away a van full of new winter coats (price tag: $10,000) to the Hispanic workers and their families. They've also raised money to buy them work boots and bicycles.

ADAMS Center

....Hossain and other FAITH board members serve on the mosque's board as well. Besides feeding the Hispanic workers, ADAMS Center, as its known, even offered to provide a van to transport them to and from the hiring site. Many of the poor Hispanic immigrants have been invited to worship at the mosque, in what has become a full-court press-the-flesh involving hundreds of Muslim volunteers from ADAMS.

The ADAMS mosque is integrally connected to the Safa group. It was founded by Safa leaders and keeps offices on Grove Street. And the mosque has received the lion's share of its funding from Saudi-backed Safa. In 1997, for instance, investigators say Mirza, the Saudi bagman, wrote a check for $250,000 to ADAMS.

Until recently, IIIT official Ahmad Totonji chaired the mosque's board of trustees. Court records allege that Totonji, a Saudi native, personally signed a check for $10,000 to al-Arian's PIJ front after 9/11.

Despite it claims of being moderate and progressive, ADAMS is a hard-line Wahhabi mosque controlled by the Saudis, investigators say. A Saudi pamphlet, called "Religious Edicts for the Immigrant Muslim," was recently found at the mosque. It states that "it is forbidden for a Muslim to become a citizen of a country (such as the United States) governed by infidels." Not surprisingly, even some of the mosque's more prominent members, such as Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR, have not hidden their wish to turn America into an Islamic state.

Hossain serves as a member of the mosque's board of trustees when he's not working for FAITH and catering to Hispanic illegals. He's also a founder of the Muslim American Political Action Committee, or MAPAC, which he set up to recruit Muslim candidates to run for federal office and work for the "empowerment of Muslim Americans."

What's more, Hossain is active in the Muslim American Society, which investigators say is the U.S. front for the Muslim Brotherhood, a worldwide jihad movement that gave rise to Hamas, PIJ and al-Qaida. Al-Awani is also active in MAS, which keeps a small, unmarked office in a non-descript building at the other end of the Wahhabi corridor in Alexandria, Va....

They aren't happy. That is why they don't win.


You are right that they have not won a few elections, but I am worried more about 2008 than any other election. 2008 is going to be interesting. There is a possible chance that a democratic president is going to be picked. It is rare that a Republican or Democratic President is picked more than three times (yes we have only had Republican in last two elections, but I am worried that the U.S. might swing in the direction of democratic this time). Only happened one time since the 1930's. Plus, the Republicans have 28 seats up for Senate in 2008 and the Democrats only have 12! Plus on top of all that we don't even have a decent candidate yet. I know there is time, but not too much. Every candidate that is mentioned would not be good for America so far. Yes, Allen, but I don't know if he can pull it off now. The others are all extreme RINOs or have too many marriages which could affect the election.
