Muslim community rallies at Capitol to protest King hearing (MN)
SarTribune.com ^ | 3/18/11 | Rose French

Posted on 03/18/2011 5:02:08 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo

About 200 Muslim imams, community leaders and others held a rally at the Capitol Friday to protest last week’s congressional hearing led by New York Republican Rep. Peter King on the radicalization of Muslims in the U.S.

Holding and waving signs that said “Muslims are not the enemy” and “Read the Quran, Mr. King,” the group marched from the Masjid Dawah on University Avenue in St. Paul and arrived at the Capitol around 1 p.m.

“We’re here today to show we Muslims are a peaceful people,” Imam Hassan Mohamud, with the Masjid Dawah, told the group of protestors. “Are we extremists? No. Are we terrorists? No. Are we radicalists? No.”

200 total attendees.

Some were Imams.

I’ll bet Ellison was there and the Strib is covering for him.

Explore this, imammas:

the koran that kills:

``9:5 But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, an seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practise regular charity, then open the way for them: for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

18:21 Thus did We make their case known to the people, that they might know that the promise of Allah is true, and that there can be no doubt about the Hour of Judgment. Behold, they dispute among themselves as to their affair. (Some) said, “Construct a building over them”: Their Lord knows best about them: those who prevailed over their affair said, “Let us surely build a place of worship over them.”

18:102 Do the Unbelievers think that they can take My servants as protectors besides Me? Verily We have prepared Hell for the Unbelievers for (their) entertainment -``

>Holding and waving signs that said “Muslims are not the enemy” and “Read the Quran, Mr. King,”<

.
Rep. King made a seemingly laudable effort in exposing Islam and its ‘militant’ adherents in the US. For PC reasons, hardly any time has been spent by government in investigating the effect that Islam has had since it flooded into our country.

The fact that Islam was referred to as the Religion of Peace (ROP), less than a year after the destruction of the WTC by Muslims, only indicates how politically correct our government has become in its dealings with Islam. Why should we investigate a peaceful movement, right? Yet, no evidence of Islam’s serenity has ever been produced before or after that disingenuous statement was made.

Mr. King claims that any aggressive behavior of a ‘few’ Muslims in the US is a result of Al-Qaeda’s influence in the many mosques that now pollute the American skyline. Does Peter King want to bask in the political limelight or is he really that ignorant of world history? Mr. King should consider the following before blaming AQ for Islam’s detestable behavior worldwide:

1. Where was AQ when the Christians in Asia Minor and North Africa were given the choice between slaughter and conversion?

2. Did Charles Martel have to fight AQ at the battle of Poitiers (732 AD), in order to save France from islamization?

3. Was it the fear for AQ that made the Europeans decide to go on the many Crusades?

4. Was AQ at the helm of the Muslim ships at the Battle of Lepanto?

5. Was it AQ that slaughtered more than a million Armenian Christians in the early 1900s or was it the Turkish Muslims who were culpable?

Mr. King should read the Koran. He would find no reference to AQ but he’ll discover the reason for Islam’s murderous aggressiveness. The answer lies in Koranic teachings that existed long before we ever learned about AQ.

Yes Mr. King, DO READ THE KORAN and drop all PC speech.

If Muslims aren’t killing the infidel, they are killing each other. There never has been “peace” in Islam. There never will be. And I do mean never, as in forever.

If they had instead protested the atrocities committed by Muslims in the name of “jihad” that’ve taken place both on U.S. soil and around the world in recent history, there’d be no need for these hearings.

Yeah, we get that most Muslims are fine peaceful people. And we get that all religions have their radical fringe. But for most religions — Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism — that fringe is probably .001% or something. It’s like arsenic levels in drinking water. A few parts per million is no problem, but 10% is a big problem.

Furthermore, it’s up to the mainstream to control its fringe, to anathematize it and ostracize it and keep it at bay. That’s where moderate Islam has failed, and that’s why it is rightfully held in a certain degree of contempt and suspicion by those who are threatened and victimized by its fringe. No one enjoys holding anyone in contempt, but that’s how things work.

Why do we allow muslims to immigrate to the United States?

A society that believes in self preservation would never permit Islamic immigration.

Sincere belief and conviction does not always mean that one holds to the truth. Truth is not a philosophy or religion. Truth is a person. Truth is not information, truth is revelation. Truth's name is Jesus (Yeshua). He is revealed to each person who receives Him through the Holy Spirit who abides with every Christian. The only way we can know Him this side of heaven or hell is to become a Christian. Every person on earth will some day, when our veil is torn, when our shell is opened, come before Jesus and see Him as He really is. Don't let your religion or culture prevent you from knowing and walking with the truth today. Read and meditate on the gospel of John and come to know the truth!

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 . It's the truth.

I bid you Shalom!! I bid you Jesus!!

‘Holding and waving signs that said “Muslims are not the enemy” and “Read the Quran,...’

Oh yeah?

Koran is filled (80-90%) with hate for Christians, Jews and blacks. It instructs to kill and conquer them and take their lands and possessions. Muslims believe the Koran to be the perfect word of their goda, Allah. These are the verses that the Islamist terrorists us to justify their murders:

THE KORAN INSTRUCTS MUSLIMS TO FIGHT CHRISTIANS, JEWS AND CONQUER THE WORLD FOR ISLAM:
(The following are only a few of the verses commanding
Muslims to fight)

WARFARE IS ORDAINED FOR YOU, though it is hateful unto you; but it may happen that you hate a thing which is good for you and it may happen that you love a thing which is bad for you. (2.216)

“AND FIGHT THEM UNTIL THERE IS NO PERSECUTION , AND RELIGION SHALL BE ONLY FOR ALLAH 2:193

If you refuse to fight, Allah will afflict you with a painful doom. 9:39

Believers must fight for Allah. They must kill and be killed , and are bound to do so by the Torah, Gospel, and Quran. But Allah will reward them for it. 9:111

Fight those among the People of the Book [i.e. Jews and Christians] ... who do not profess the true religion, until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued. (9.29)

ISLAM IS THE MOST RACIST, BIGOTED RELIGION, AND THE KORAN IS FILLED WITH HATE FOR ALL OTHER THAN MUSLIMS:
(It is taught in textbooks in some Muslims countries today that Christians are monkeys and Jews are pigs)

Christians will be burned in the Fire. 5:72

Whoever says Muhammad was black must be killed…(Ash-Shifa, Tr. Aisha Abdarrahman, 2004)

Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman, the companion of Sahnun said, “Anyone who says that the Prophet was black should be killed. (ibid, p.375)

In one Hadith, Mohammed referred to Blacks as Raisn Heads (Sahih Al Bukhary vol. 1, no. 662 and vol. 9, no. 256), and as pug nosed slaves in Sahih Moslem vol. 9 pages 46 and 47.

Christians are wrong about the Trinity. For that they will have a painful doom. 5:73

Give tidings (O Muhammad) of a painful doom to the rich and greedy Christian monks and Jewish rabbis.9:34

Jesus was not the Son of God. Those who say he was (Christians) are going to hell. 19:35-37

Scourge adulteresses with 100 stripes. Do not show them any pity. Have a party of believers watch the punishment. 24:2

THE KORAN PROMISES COUNTRIES TO CONQUER AND THE SPOILS THERIN:
Sura 33 “And he bequeathed to you their lands, their homes and their possessions, together with land you have never trodden” (33.27) .

MUSLIMS ARE INSTRUCTED IN THE KORAN TO BE STILL UNTIL THEY HAVE THE NUMBERS IN THE COUNTRIES THEY HAVE INVADED:
“Be patient with unbelievers until you have strength” (86.17).

THE KORAN INSTRUCTS MUSLIMS TO BE DECEPTIVE:
Quran 3:28 Don’t have unbelieving friends unless it is to deceive them. Remember the final goal is to Allah.

SHARIA LAW MUST RULE THE WORLD

Allah’s law (Sharia) is binding to all…4:135

Allah accepts only Sharia and no other laws…7:29, 57:25

Allah is the Law-giver; He appointed Muhammad to implement the only correct laws (Sharia laws)…45:18

Quran 9:33 ISLAM WILL PREVAIL OVER ALL RELIGIONS

THE FOUNDER OF CAIR HAS TOLD US PLAINLY OF ISLAM’S OBJECTIVE IN AMERICA:

“ISLAM ISN’T IN AMERICA TO BE EQUAL TO ANY OTHER FAITH, BUT TO BECOME DOMINANT. The Koran ... should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth. Everthing we need to know is in the Koran. We don’t need to look somewhere else.”

OMAR M. AHMAD, CHAIRMAN OF CAIR,the mainsteam Muslim advocacy group.

Ha ha...yeah well..... ;-)

Okay, so I'm just a little protective of my "Little House on the Prairie" life as a kid. These are good people. They are honest as the day is long. They will work their fingers to the bone. They love God, and help their neighbors and feel guilty for three days if they hurt your feelings. I will not stand by and watch their destruction by these radical religious cockroaches.
