Skip to comments.Taxi Driving in Seattle--Even "Moderate" Muslims hate Jews
Posted on 01/02/2007 9:15:12 AM PST by SJackson
Yesterday afternoon, after wrapping up our vacation with a couple of pleasant hours in the Elliot Bay Book Company, Sheryl, Madeleine and I started back to our hotel to pick up our bags and head home to LA. We were with our friend and my Pajamas colleague Gerard. He proposed we take a cab; he would drop us by the hotel before continuing to his home.
We found one quickly. It was driven by an African guy. We had to instruct him about the location of our hotel; it was new. In the course of this I asked him where he was from. Kenya, he said. But then quickly added he was Somali. Many Somalians live in Kenya.
Ah, Somalia. Immediately the three adults in the car perked up. We acknowledged we knew there was big trouble in that country, the attack from Ethiopia on the ICU, etc. To our surprise, our driver immediately launched into a vitriolic attack on Al Qaeda. They were evil violent men, hijacking Islam across the globe. He had details of their infiltration of Somalia from a phone call he had made the previous night, how they were using Saudi money, etc. Thousands of people were being murdered by these Wahhabis for no reason. He was obviously following the situation closely. Al Qaeda was a danger to all mankind, he said.
It was a refreshing to hear this view from a Moslem taxi driver in Seattle. He was obviously pleased that we recognized the travails of his people too. So he continued with his explication of what was behind this terrible situation - how the Moslem religion could have been taken over by these violent forces. Someone was behind the rise of this Saudi Wahhabism . The answer, he said, was Israel. It was all an Israeli plot. They were behind the Wahhabis.
Suddenly our hearts sank. How could a man who seemed so reasonable, so knowledgeable, say something so obviously crazy?
Just then we were at our hotel. Sheryl and I left the cab, stunned. I phoned Gerard from the airport. What had the man said on the way to his place? Gerard - wisely - had let him continue. There was no point in fighting with a man like that. Better to learn how his mind worked. Gerard simply inquired why the Israelis would want to back Al Qaeda when Al Qaeda was sworn to destroy Israel. The man replied by talking about his childhood, his Islamic education. He had learned about the Jews from the Koran. That was the truth, of course.
Taxi driving in Seattle. So it goes.
Meet our next state senator.
The only difference between Radical Islam and the moderates is the method of eliminating the Jews.
I think I've had that cab driver, but in Houston.
Alas, I think his thought process is all too common.
These are the people our government would like us to accept with open arms. Never. Never in one hundred years will I trust a person who claims islam as his or her religion.
If a WASP tried to deny service to anyone for anything, the MSM would be all over this like stink on ..., well you know.
There is no difference between Radical Islam and the Moderates as both are our enemies and both want "US" eliminated. Anyone that thinks Israel is their only target is a FOOL!
I hope his comments were taken into consideration when he received his tip.
"Moderate muslim" bump.
You are very wise to not accept our enemies. Only fools trust those that have already proclaimed they want us eliminated. There are none so blind as those who will not see.
Hating Jews and other non-Muslims is the cornerstone of Islam.
The conspiratorial, cloudy thinkers are a significant voting block.
It's that infernal Zionist Time MachineTM going back in history to the 1700's and starting the Wahabi sect, going back to the 1800's and writing all those books about the Holy Land and its wide empty spaces on all that land supposedly inhabited by Palestinians.
Damn sneaky, those Zionists.
FRmail me to be added or removed from this Judaic/pro-Israel/Russian Jewry ping list.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
These American 'moderate' muslims are the muslims that the White House is now recruiting for our military, to "be used as interpreters, and to help bring understanding and goodwill between islamic cultures and those who fight the war on terror". Our ship is sinking fast because we have no captain at the helm, just an incompetent, globalist nincompoop.
Mark Steyn mentions this intellectual disconnect that is found in most all moderate Muslims. The early brainwashing that is done to Muslim children in the madrassas is nearly impossible to overcome. This is the reason that I fear Barack Obama. He attended the madrassas for most of his early life, first in Hawaii and then in Indonesia. It would be impossible for him to suddenly become a Christian, just by attending a Catholic high school. As a matter of fact, he would be dead, because abandoning Islam is supposed to be an automatic death sentence.
I feel exactly the same, and have posted similar sentiments in other threads.
Islam is our enemy. But who are Islam's soldiers?
I have come to the understanding of exactly _who_ "Islam's soldiers" ARE.
They do not, for the most part, wear uniforms. They are spreading through the world. They are here - in increasing numbers.
Islam's soilders. Do YOU know who they are?
Well, he has Kenyan ancestry, just like our next President, Barack HUSSEIN Obama! My, isn't that wonderful!/s
It's hard to believe it when anyone thinks it is a newsworthy to discover that in followers of islam, EXtreme is the MAINstream.
All they need to do is get faithful transcripts of the translations of the hundreds of thousands of sermons delivered every week in mosques around the world. And stop the fatal Western logic of assuming that these people being fed hate and violence do not believe what they are saying and hearing.
Islam is one of the fastest-growing religions in the United States today. According to one recent survey, there are 1,209 mosques in America, well over half founded in the last 20 years. Between 17 and 30 percent of American Muslims are converts to the faith.
At the center of both traditional American life and the lives of the generally more recent Muslim immigrants is the family. As Shahed Amanullah, an engineer who lives in San Franciso, California, puts it, " American values are, by and large, very consistent with Islamic values, with a focus on family, faith, hard work, and an obligation to better self and society."
This booklet is a brief introduction to a complex subject, an attempt to explore in words and images the extraordinary range and richness of the way American Muslims live. That point of cross-cultural commonality -- the family -- is where we begin.
See post 23. Ping my if you find any other advertisement for immigrants of a particular faith on a government site. I won't be holding my breath.
"they are a significant voting block "
Our ancestors didn't risk life and limb to come to this country just so a bunch of camel jockeys could come here, terrorize our women and children and make hamburger out of our families!
I agree with every word you say. However, our government will not do a thing about the muzzies. The citizens of this country have a bit of thinking to do, I'd say, because we might have to take care of the situation ourselves.
See my #27
Belated, WELCOME ABOARD!
Moderate Muslim: Radical Muslim who has run out of ammo.
"our government will not do a thing about the muzzies"
the "government" won't have any choice.
The OUTRAGE will be OVERWHELMING bordering on threat of impeachment of Bush "if" these people aren't deported which should have been started on 9/12/2001.
1993 was strike one.
2001 was strike two.
and the next attack will be "strike three, you're outa here!"
And that other muslim that was elected recently, can't recall his name.
Muslims holding office is a direct threat to this Country. Along with their supporters in the democrat (and republican) party, they can gain enough of a foothold and pass legislation in islam's favor.
Yes it CAN happen. Look at all that has happened that we never thought would take place. Take a good look at CAIR and what they are allowed to get away with. We are being infiltrated and with continued inaction, it is only a matter of time before we are very, very, sorry.
That sounds like a Sean Hannity quote.
I`m a taxi driver here in New York city, one of the rare ones who is Jewish as well, and one the even rarer ones who doesn`t come from another country but was born here. And I can tell you first hand, it doesn`t matter how a Muslim sees terror, it is absolutely true, they all hate or are prejudice against the Jews.
For example, when gas prices were going through the roof, I walked into our office one day (where we get assigned taxis) and what should I find? A letter posted on the wall asking all drivers to ask the TLC for a rate hike to cover the cost of "Jewish oil"..Mind you, this was a paper put up by management (Muslims).Meaning they were blaming the Jews for the price of gas going up.
I get in debates all the time with these wackos, and it`s true...I wouldn`t say all of them "hate" the Jews, but they are raised to be extremely prejudice against them. They truly believe every single problem, no matter WHAT it is, is because of the Jews.
I had one guy tell me once the Jews even created Saddam to oppress the Iraqis so they could get Iraqi oil and now the Jews want all the oil so this is why the Iraq invasion occurred. It truly is Nazism, but on a level that has not yet come to absolute power. If Islam had absolute power over the world, I have no doubt whatsoever they would do stuff to Jews that would make the holocaust look like childs play.
That's a good question. Might ask the same one of American Jews, who voted 80% for the party endorsed by Al Qaeda.
"At least the taxi driver didn't blame Bush also."
The cab ride ended before he got to that part...and how Bush is Hitler, and Hitler was a Jew http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1761239/posts (even though Hitler wasn't such a bad guy, and he never tried to kill any of those evil, bloodsucking Joooos, errr, Zionists).
I used to wonder how a mass psychosis could infect a few tens of millions (WW2 Germany and Japan). Compared to a billion + Moslems, Germany and Japan were nothing.
Some of the 9/11 hijackers were smiling taxi drivers in our country.
Ya think? The outrage will be ignored. The outrages that muzzies commit will be treated as a criminal matter - islam will never be defined as the reasons behind muzzie crimes.
Besides, Bush does not have that long left in his presidency and we can not be sure the next President will even recognize islamic terrorism, or admit that islam is a threat. A democrat or rino president will continue welcoming them to these shores. GLOBALISM has arrived.
One of these days, we will wake up and remember that we CAN do something about it. It is within the power of the People of the USA to tell their government Cease and Desist.
From the BOR:
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal,that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. . . .
Thanks for the kind words. You are wise as well. And I am sure we are not the only two.
Some day, we may have to come together.
I would certainly hope so. However, after seeing Americans of the vagina-'n'-estrogen variety responding to 9/11 by donning head scarves to "show their solidarity with their sisters of cover" (ie, to demonstrate to their own satisfaction their moral superiority over the rest of us neanderthalxenophobicracistredneckredstatesexisthomophobiclookist
types ) I take NOTHING for granted when it comes to those whom I'm forced to claim as my fellow countrymen and -women. Self-hatred, a belief in "white guilt" and the concomitant belief in the moral superiority of third worlders, and fashionable left/liberal college indoctrination in general has claimed too many minds for reactions to be predicted over even a suitcase nuke destroying an entire American city . The she dogs did their 'head scarf' stunt in September of 2001-only a week or two after the attacks!
and he never tried to kill any of those evil, bloodsucking Joooos, errr, Zionists).
I thought they were called Neo-Cons.
I used to think being democrat was mere stupidity.. but its more like a logical disease.. or a disease of logic..

A fair number of Americans also hate Jews.
