Herman Cain Apologizes to the Muslim Brotherhood
Pajamas Media ^ | 30 July 2011 | Ryan Mauro

Posted on 08/01/2011 5:36:17 AM PDT by LSUfan

If Cain opposes Sharia-based governance, then he picked the wrong group to reach out to.

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has been under fire for saying communities should be able to stop the construction of mosques. So he apologized, following a visit to a mosque led by Imam Mohamed Magid, the president of Muslim Brotherhood branch the Islamic Society of North America.

Instead of apologizing, IMHO he should have reiterated what he said, and said it louder ..........Political Correctness is going to take this country under..............

Exactly what is the need people feel to appease the muslims? Their stated goal is to destroy the USA and the west. Bombings, rampages at Ft. Hood, 911...what's it gonna take before some American in a leadership position, somewhere, grows a pair and stands up to them?

And Herman, for you, Walk your talk, or shuttup.

The group says it “rejects all acts of terrorism, including those perpetrated by Hamas, Hizbullah and any other group that claims Islam as their inspiration.”

I don't believe this for a second. The Koran is a warrior's code, with very little difference between its intent and that of Japan's Bushido. The Book of Swords tells the "believer" to "kill the infidel" at every turn. It relegates women to the task of providing more warriors to carry on the fight. Islam isn't a religion...it's a cult. Oddly, those places on Earth that have the highest Muslim populations are also the most violent. Sunni and Shiites fight each other in such places to the detriment of all who live there. As an admitted outsider looking in, I cannot see one redeeming thing about Islam or any meaningful contribution they've made to Mankind in general. Cain's political correctness here has cost him my support...not that it matters much.

Herman Cain, Daniels, Chris Christie, Rick Perry - all reflect the poisonous impact of Islamodollars filtered thorugh the middle east into the American political arena.

Islam is our enemy. Each and every Muslim is our enemy. Their goal is total destruction of America, the west, and all other religions.

Cain is never going to get off the ground, anyhow.

So his Gulliverian adventures as he travels along the campaign trail have no more interest for me than for most people.

In short, there's not a chance for the primary electorate to raise Cain.

Cain seems to have problem deal with foreign policy issues. You would have never guessed that on his Atlanta show. But it seems he is not boned up on issues. That is too bad because out of all of the candidates who are running it seems only Bachmann and McCotter might be left as my choices. So if anyother wins, other than a Palin entry, I’ll be opposed. Unless Cain keeps boning up on the issues. But apologizing to the Muslim Brotherhood is 100% wrong.

you are correct to not believe them.
taquiyya permits them to lie.
a religion, that specificly authorizes lying and deceiving. (in addition to terrorizing unbelievers.)

however, in this case, they are basically telling the truth. the Muslim Brotherhood does reject violent means. they prefer to infiltrate, and use demographics.
they have the same goal as Al-Queda, just different methods.

...the Muslim Brotherhood’s OWN official plan in the USA is

Yeah West did. Basically according to Limbaugh, Allen West ranted at Debbie in an email and called her names following a Debbie rant on the house floor where she went after him. He was upset at her. Then Limbaugh thinks he became scared that that she was trashing him for cutting benefits to all hispanics and elderly. So he apologized and then voted for the Boehner Bill in the House. So Limbaugh says because of Debbie’s campaign against him in Florida, he grew scared and supported Beohner’s Bill. But now both sides deny an apology.
But West ranted about getting Tea Party criticism for his vote on Laura Ingraham. And Laura vowed to help campaign for him.

I knew about (and was disappointed by) the underlined part, but if he'd actually apologized to that deranged skank it surely would've been trumpted by the kneepad networks for days and days.

Though Rush is pretty savvy, he's by no means infallible, so his 'thinking' it doesn't make it so. The two issues seem totally separate. West's background and character is such that I can disagree with his vote on Boehner's mess w/o kicking him to the curb.

Having said that however, to apologize to that DWS whore would be a deal breaker for this voter.

(and thanks for the reply)

“...has a few skeletons in his closet...”

No joke! If a conservative wants to run for office, COME CLEAN with anything in your past. Get rid of all secrets, because they will come out. Their hidden sins will be used against them.

I wonder if that’s the reason so many Pubs in DC go up there and turn chicken. There is something they don’t want to get out, and the opposition is EXPERT in finding just what that is.

Remember Filegate?

While I stand by my opposition to the interference of Sharia law into the American legal system … I am truly sorry for any comments that may have betrayed my commitment to the U.S. Constitution and the freedom of religion guaranteed by it. Muslims, like all Americans, have the right to practice their faith freely and peacefully.

this is the statement put out by Herman Cain according to this article. This statement is little more than a generic endorsment of the constitutional freedom of religion tacked on to his reiteration of opposition to Sharia law. I don’t see how this gives the Militant Islamists much to work with...

From the Miami Herald, quoting Roll Call:

“Freshman Rep. Allen West said Wednesday that he has apologized to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for calling her ‘vile, unprofessional and despicable’ in an email.

‘I just apologized to her,’ West (R-Fla.) told reporters.

But West was anything but contrite, remorseful or apologetic about the dustup in an email to supporters earlier in the day.

It’s no surprise Democrats and women’s groups used West’s now-infamous email to raise money, but the fiery tea-party-affiliated Congressman used the incident himself in a fundraising solicitation to supporters.”

Sadly, 93% of all media reporting is done by LIBERALS. We can either disregard their stuff or take it with a grain of salt.

There are some FReepers here who talk to West periodically in person. Their reports will be the determining factor for me.

Thanks for the update.

I'll join you in withholding judgement until such time as first-hand FReeper accounts filter in, but if it's true it'll be a huge disappointment.

Going by his campaign last year and his excellent public lectures on terrorism/islam and downsizing goobermint readily accessible on YouTube, he seemed/seems like the honest to God real deal.

Please ping me if you hear anything more ?

I’m going to work on that right now.

One thing to bear in mind-—Debbie’s people have been prowling around in West’s district trying to muck things up for him.

For all I know, THEY could have been the original source of the story. They are hell-bent in getting rid of S.Florida’s only conservative.

Looks like I was wrong but I am not ready to admit it.

What’s the date of the Miami Herald quotation of Roll Call (do they not have their own reporters to send to a FL Congressman?)

Through July 21st his spokesman was denying he apologized.

I'm undecided on this one. The public statement just supported the First Amendment's intent for the right to worship (or not). But I have no idea what was said in private. What I do know from this article is that Cain deserves to be questioned on why, given the revelations of an intertwining of terrorists fronts with those named in the HLF case and this mosque and this Imam, why Cain would even make the effort.

Does he honestly think any Muslim is supporting the Republican party other than to infiltrate it to make converts or provide targeting information?
