Sounds like the merging of the Mexican Ku Klux Klan and Al-Qaeda....

Yep, they haven’t been marching in our streets together for years for nothing. I find it interesting that both groups find more in common with each other than all the rest of us.
I suppose we need to dig out all those old articles about how many Latinos are converting to Islam.
Yet Napolitano and Obama fiddle as the border disintegrates.
UCFRoadWarrior, yours was a great quote. You have an understanding much better than I, it does appear. A Mexican Ku Klux Klan is La Raza too. Remembering history of the outlaw organizations, these groups should also be considered as part of the mix of racists.
AuntB, Thank You for the *ping*. A most informative thread. An informative bit of information would be nice to have since on Latinos converting to Islam. Have heard or seen some typed information (no articles, for I have found no articles or reports recently) saying the coyotes are killing moslems attempting to sneak into the U.S. of A. Some typing (unconfirmed) states the coyotes do not want the U.S. attacked because that would cause their money supply to be cut off on human smuggling and drug running. As I said these are unconfirmed reports (no articles or reports have I seen) yet this misinformation is being put out for consumption apparently by leftists. The lines are being drawn, in the sand. Watching many step across the lines in the sand to offer nothing which can contradict the given information, though there are some trying. Misinformation ... I find it not surprising given people have and are continuing to choose sides. Knowing which side I am on (America's) I mostly sit and watch the misinformation flow and see if any actual intelligence can be gleamed. Thus far I have had no luck. Good Luck and Be Safe, All.
Given the lay of the field, it appear as design, or worse... Given money is involved somewhere my best guess is worse is on the way, design nearly finished. I will pray I am wrong ....

[snip]Latino American Dawah Organization (LADO)
Since its beginning in 1997, LADO has been an organization committed to promoting Islam among the Latino community within the United States. We focus on educating Latinos about Islam as a way of life. We also educate Latinos and others about the legacy of Islam in Spain and Latin America as well as about the growing Latino Muslim community in the United States. While adhering to our guiding principles, we accomplish our mission through an array of programs, services, and publications. For example, we provide free information about Islam to all interested parties.
Whether you are a non-Muslim or a Muslim, we invite you to learn about how we may be able to meet your needs. Our goal is to provide the most relevant information and resources. Alhamdulillah (All praise is due to God), many Latinos are embracing Islam. Some feel that they are reclaiming their Islamic heritage. What is Islam? Who is a Muslim?
“¡Puro Latino! ¡Puro Islam! ¡A su LADO!”
In Yorba Linda Sunday February 13th
A wave of 1,500 American Patriots arrived early outside the Community Center in Yorba Linda to express their concern over the Muslim Brotherhood linked ICNA holding a fundraiser. The fundraising event featured two radical Imams as the speakers. Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. And Amir Abdel Malik-Ali a self professed supporter of Hezbollah. Malik just a month ago gave the closing speech at the MSA Western Conference at UCLA. He ended his speech by asking everyone to rise and join him in the pledge of allegiance. Here is his rendition of the pledge of allegiance which he recited.
* Allah is my Lord
* Islam is my Life
* The Quran is my guide
* The Sunna is my practice
* Jihad is my Spirit
* Righteousness is my Character
* Paradise is my Goal
* I enjoin what is Right
* I forbid what is Wrong
