'Savage Nation' fueling Islamophobia in US [Iranian Govt. Propaganda]
Press TV [Iranian Govt] ^ | Sat, 16 Aug 2008 12:28:17 GMT | By Ashkan Kazemian, Press TV, Tehran

Posted on 08/16/2008 11:58:42 AM PDT by camerakid400

A recent lawsuit filed by radio host and author Michael Savage against Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is one of the latest acts of racism against Muslims in the United States.

Savage, who is often criticized for his fascist and racist opinions, sued Washington-based CAIR for copyright infringement, saying the council had rebroadcast over four minutes from his radio show The Savage Nation on their website as an example of the bigotry and hatred against Muslims in the US.

The excerpts had placed the San Francisco-based host's hateful comments against Islam, Muslims and their holy book, Qur'an, on their website. Savage had also linked CAIR to terrorist organizations.

A federal district court in California dismissed Savage's suit in July, maintaining that the use of limited portions of the material for commentary and criticism falls within copyright law's fair use exception.

Savage's lawsuit against CAIR was dismissed in July. However, the incident has indicated that there is a good deal of effort in US media to somehow make a connection between Islam and terrorism.

The Iranians are dim; this will do more to encourage Savage and legitimize his complaints against muslims more quickly than any other thing I can think of.

He will leap into the air and click up his heels, having heard this.

I cannot believe how foolish the Iranians have acted, here.

You can’t rule out the possibility that radical “Democrat” elements were behind the threats, such as the ones turning over books at Costco.

racism against Muslims in the United States

So "Muslim" is a race now?

What race is Azzam the American (nee Adam Pearlman)?

What about Arabs and Persians? Aren't they caucasians, just like us?

I am very confused.

I don’t find Michael Savage to be very credible. I think he has psychological problems, and he puts conservatism in a bad light.

Savage dropped the suit yesterday due to death threats.

Savage dropped the suit because it was entirely lacking in merit and not self-respecting lawyer who wanted to continue practicing law would push a case that had no foundation in fact or law.

Clearly you don’t listen to Savage. Typical of your ilk to criticize those you have never listened to. Savage joins the ranks of a growing number of American patriots who are attacked by the left for the heinous crime of telling the truth. Islam is a “religion” which demands that its followers kill anyone who stands in its path of world domination, steal their property and sell their families into slavery. Savage pointed out that this is quite rightly what the Quran says. Of course no one is permitted to delve into the non-PC. Rather, we must ignore facts and deem Islam the Religion of Peace. After all, beheading does make for a very peaceable victim.

To: All

As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

Nation % Muslim
United States 1.0%
Australia 1.5%
Italy 1.5%
Norway 1.8%
Canada 1.9%
China 2.0%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Nation % Muslim
Denmark 2.0%
United Kingdom 2.7%
Germany 3.7%
Spain 4.0%
Thailand 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

Nation % Muslim
Switzerland 4.3%
Philippines 5.0%
Sweden 5.0%
The Netherlands 5.5%
Trinida and Tabago 5.8%
France 8.0%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).

Nation % Muslim
Guyana 10.0%
India 13.4%
Israel 16.0%
Kenya 10.0%
Russia 15.0%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Nation % Muslim
Ethiopia 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Nation % Muslim
Bosnia 40.0%
Chad 50.1%
Lebanon 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Nation % Muslim
Albania 70.0%
Malaysia 60.4%
Qatar 77.5%
Sudan 70.0%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Nation % Muslim
Bangladesh 83.0%
Egypt 90.0%
Gaza 98.7%
Indonesia 86.1%
Iran 98.0%
Iraq 97.0%
Jordan 92.0%
Morocco 98.7%
Pakistan 97.0%
Syria 90.0%
Tajikistan 90.0%
Turkey 99.8%
United Arab Emirates 96.0%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim: Nation % Muslim
Yemen 99.9%
Afghanistan 100.0%
Saudi Arabia 100.0%
Somalia 100.0%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

But, it’s a peaceful religion!

If he said that. He is lying. He may have received death threats. But if he dropped the suit, that's not the reason.

As far as islamophobia is concerned; I don't ear islam. I hate islam down to its rotten core. And I want it expunged from the face to the earth. It is not and never has been a religion. It is a murderous, supremacist, genocidal ideology.

No I don't "prefer subersive groups like CAIR to operate un molested." I would prefer a situation in which marginal characters like Michael Savage do not latch on to conservatism as a way of getting a soapbox on national radio and, thereby, discredit the ideology to which I adhere.

Michael Savage has taken up any number of grand-sounding causes in the last few years and then dropped them when he lost interest, and (it seems to me) he loses interest when the "contributions" he solicits stop rolling in. I say "the last few years" because that's how long he's been embarrassing himself on an AM station that serves the market I live in. For all I know, he's been engaging in this tactic from day one in the San Francisco market in which he first gained fame. He is at best a phony, and does no one any good when he mounts a madcap campaign to confront an organization as dangerous as CAIR, which can now be expected to make maximum use of their "victory" over him.

People like Michael Savage have been around forever. You used to be able to hear them raving in mental asylums. These days, they can be given national radio hookups.

No. The various acts of terrorism in the name of this so-called "religion" is what causes me to DISTRUST it. I barely listening to The Savage Nation. It's like one bumper sticker/T-shirt reads:

Everything I wanted to learn about Islam I learned on 9/11!

But frankly, it started even earlier than that. And, now, the more I learn about this so-called "religion", the more I'm convinced we need to take measures to restrict the immigration of Islam's practitioners into this country or we will have another Europe on our hands!

His lawyer already wrote the 160 page appeal. Savage dropped it after the appeal was already written by his lawyer.

If you think CAIR is not racketeering or supporting terror groups, then you should really research CAIR more carefully.

I fully support Michael Savage and I hope he didn't drop his lawsuit. Islam is a racist satanic cult of murder and death. We need to take action against these racist pigs now.

Anymore planes flying into buildings and this is what these Islamonazis can expect in return:

And that my friends is the end of that.

Savage doesn’t make sense when he calls Bush the worst Commander in Chief in history.

Bush has done more to fight terrorists than any other President, his troops have killed and imprisoned them by the thousands, but Savage says Bush sent troops to Iraq for the benefit of crooked contractors and Haliburton.

Vert good point, but I am not islamophobic. That doesn't exist. A phobia has to 1) a fear and 2) irrational. I am proud to say that I have a very sound and rational position against radical Islam based on historical facts, and it is up to the moderate followers of Islam, not me, to prove me wrong by fighting violence among their ranks.

Savage was attacked by CAIR first because they didn't like what he said about Muslims. CAIR started boycotting his advertisers and spreading lies about him while using his audio clip out of context. According to many lawyers, this is actionable for a lawsuit. As far as a scam, I highly doubt that. There is absolutely no evidence for that.

Actually its money out of the bank for him, considering he lost a great deal of advertising money due to CAIR.

He has said many negative things [as well as positive things] about Muslims in the past, this wasn’t really anything new.

As far as ‘falling for it,’ I still don’t see where the big scam is here. You have no evidence that this is a scam, and in most cases I would support an effort to bring down CAIR, no matter who files it.

Savage has his drawbacks but once again unless you have done the three hours yourself day after day it's hard to put forth a researched comment.

The one comment I like best from Savage's show(and I never listen to him unless I can't get Mark on the radio) is that liberalism truly is a mental disorder.
