Concern about rise of Islam is bigotry?

A counter-terrorism specialist is defending TV evangelist Pat Robertson against a charge of bigotry toward Muslims by Anti-Defamation League boss Abraham Foxman.

Robertson, founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network and Regent University, was criticized by Foxman for expressing concern on CBN's "The 700 Club" show about the growing construction of mosques in Europe. Foxman called Robertson's statements "troubling," based on "hateful stereotypes of Islam."

In an open letter, Jeffrey M. Epstein, president of America's Truth Forum, pushed back at Foxman for defending "a seditious enemy that's not only sworn to the death and destruction of the Jewish People but one that is determined to undermine the very fabric of western society – and you have the chutzpah to do so with Jewish funding."

It’s past time for a Crusade, and this time we don’t even have to go all the way to the Middle East.

It’s not bigotry. It’s discrimination of the sane and rational kind.

The problem with islam is that it is not benign. It is aggressively intolerant, and is itself the worst form of bigotry the world has ever known.

Iran Using Western Mosques to Plot Terrorism?

In our exclusive interview, Reza Khalili shared inside information from his years working for the Guards—a group that recently vowed to murder American generals. He was able to infiltrate the organization as a double agent working for the CIA and details his experiences in the fascinating new book, A Time to Betray.

Perhaps the most stunning revelation to come out of our interview was Reza’s admission that Iran uses mosques in Europe and the U.S to plot, finance, recruit and train for terrorism. Reza was personally involved in some of these operations while working for Iran in the Muslim communities of Europe. Given the current controversies that are raging over proposed mega-mosques, not only at Ground Zero but across America’s heartland, Reza’s insights are vitally important.

Reza Khalili: Mosques are supposed to be a place for prayer. A place for submission to God. But they are used as a recruitment center, for backdoor meetings, transfer of arms and cash and putting together terrorist activities and I was involved in some of their meetings.

A strong case can be made that Foxman is more of a threat to Jews than Mudslimes.

When someone plays the bigot or race card everyday like this pig slime Foxman does they are deliberately attempting to place Jews and the rest of us at risk by minimizing the threat these vile people represent.

Foxman's love of Marxism makes him a danger to us all as he would gladly turn anyone of us over to the pig-people mudslims if it furthered the Progressive (aka Marxist) movement.

Well slap my bottom, and call me a bigot. Living with Islam is like making your bed in a pile of manure.

thank you for posting this important article,
i hope a lot of people read it.

Islam doesn’t recognize ANY nation or government,
that doesn’t operate under Sharia Law.

it is fundamentally seditious.

ISLAM divides the world into exactly 2 parts.
the house of peace, and the house of war.

Islam teaches that jihad is incumbent on ALL muslims,
to do, or if unable, to actively support.

it is not bigotry, to be concerned about people,
who’s religion teaches that they are at war with us.

The influence of Shari’a Law on our shores should be stopped with prejudice. US Mosques that preach hatred and contribute to violence should be held to account. If that is bigotry, so be it.

“...if it furthered the Progressive (aka Marxist) movement.”
/// i agree. but all the leftists who think they are “using” Islam to advance their cause, forget that in Iran, and other places, when the Islamists took control, the first thing they did, was butcher the communists...

...thanks again to RaceBannon for posting this, to compete with the other important stories like the 87 on Weinergate...

i’d prefer my grandchildren didn’t wear burkhas...

Rejection of Islamic practices, Sharia law, and uncivilized cultural practices are not “Islamaphobic”, but more properly, “Islamoskeptical”.

Muslims must first demonstrate that they are willing to integrate into polite society, following its norms of behavior with non-Muslims and with other Muslims.

Part of this is to condemn other Muslims who have violated societal norms, the secular law, or engaged in antisocial behaviors, as “bad Muslims”. It is inappropriate to blame “bad behavior” as a whole, when faced with bad behavior by a specific Muslim.

If Muslims attempt to evade, subvert, disparage, attack, steal or lie, it reflects poorly on their community as a whole; and non-Muslim condemnation of such behavior is not “Islamophobic” in any way.

But repeated bad behavior does give rise to “Islamoskepticism”, and a distrust of Muslims when they claim no association with offensive behavior, when the truth is obvious that they do have association with it.

Anyone who wants to survive a war will have to define an enemy.

Anyone who wants to survive an attack will have to define an assailant.

Discriminating wisdom is not bigotry. A lack of such is stupidity.

Good post.

Islam is about the merger of state and religion under a dictatorship. Religious freedom is impossible. A “bill of rights” is impossible. Nothing could be more hostile to our Constitution, and freedom everywhere. Congress should identify Islam as a subversive political organization.

Islam is, among other things, a political system hiding behind the skirts of “religion”. It is a theocratic means of acquiring and maintaining power. That a siamese twin of religion and state is allowed to gain power within our borders and elsewhere by claiming persecution as a “porotected” group in its religious guise is abombinable.
