Top U.S. Islamic Group Calls for ‘Gun Control’
PJMedia ^ | July 24, 2012 | Patrick Poole

Posted on 07/24/2012 8:37:12 AM PDT by opentalk

Fresh off of handing a “diversity” award to outspoken Jew-hater Dawud Walid, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is moving on to a new outrage by launching an attack on the U.S. Constitution.

The current issue of ISNA’s bi-monthly magazine Islamic Horizons carries an article about ISNA’s demand for gun control.

Specifically, the article, with the unambiguous title “ISNA Seeks Gun Control,” cites shooting of Trayvon Martin to explain their opposition to S. 2188, the “National right- to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012,” and S. 2213, the “Respecting States’ Rights and Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012.”

An April 13 th action alert on ISNA’s website directs their supporters to contact Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to have him stop the legislation from becoming law.

The same action alert states that ISNA is part of the Brady Center’s “Faiths United to Oppose Gun Violence,” and the Islamic group signed onto the Brady Center’s “Faith” group letter to Reid demanding he block the legislation.

This is not the first time that ISNA and the Brady Center have united to oppose the Second Amendment. As noted by The Truth About Guns in February 2011, ISNA was one of the original founding groups of the “Faiths United to Oppose Gun Violence” when it was rolled out by the Brady Center. Nor is the Second Amendment the only constitutional freedom under assault by ISNA and its leaders.

As reported by Neil Munro at the Daily Caller back in October, a group of representatives from many of the Obama administration’s favored Islamist groups met with Tom Perez, the head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. During the meeting, the Muslim leaders, including those from ISNA, called for a redefinition of anti-discrimination laws to punish criticism of Islam:

Gun control?

I have great gun control.

I feel comfortable that I could shoot a raghead running at 300 yards.

Now that's gun control.

The Islamist agenda of “Murdering, Converting or Enslaving” the infidel can really be difficult when they are armed, can't it?

No matter, the Left needs an unarmed America just as much and for pretty much the same reason—tyranny...

...they both are willing to work together to this aim and then settle later who will be the final slave-master.

Instead, let’s have “muslim control.” There are way too many deadly muslims on the streets, and every muslim bought and sold should have a registration number.

Two Muslim mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat’s milk.

The older of the mothers pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. And they start reminiscing.

‘This is my oldest son Mohammed. He would be 24 years old now.’

‘Yes, I remember him as a baby’ says the other mother cheerfully.

‘He’s a martyr now though’ mum confides. ‘Oh, so sad dear’ says the other.

And this is my second son also named Mohammed. He would be 21’

‘Oh, I remember him,’ says the other happily, ‘he had such curly hair when he was born.’ ‘He’s a martyr too’ says mum quietly.

‘Oh, gracious me ...’ says the other.

‘And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Little Mohammed. He would be 18,’ she whispers.

‘Yes’ says the friend enthusiastically, ‘I remember when he first started school.’’He’s a martyr also,’ says mum, with tears in her eyes.

After a pause and a deep sigh, the second mother looks wistfully at the photographs and says...
‘They blow up so fast, don’t they?’

I think I'll work on my gun control this weekend. Put another couple hundred rounds down range... Maybe have a nice bacon breakfast first. Then go home and have a sip or two of Tennessee whiskey after I clean my weapons.

Of course. Image what the terrorists could (would) do if Americans were defenseless.
They'd do the same thing Japan wanted to do during WWII, but didn't dare because we WERE armed.

An unarmed society is an easy target. Too many people think a spineless politician will be standing at their door to save them if America were ever attacked. They forget how fast the jelly spines ran and hid in the safety of their bunkers during 9/11.
If Americans think the "lawmakers" are going to be around to protect them if times get hard, they'd better think again. They're going to be on their planes and out of the country within minutes of a major threat. You'll be on your own, Jack.

What an opportunity! Create an image that shows some of those organizations, with logos if they have one, that support gun control.

Democratic Party
Communist Party of America (and related, like Trotskyite).
The Socialist International
Mayors Against Illegal Guns
The Tides Foundation
Islamic Society of North America
American Bar Association
The Brady Campaign
Nazi Party of the United States (except for white people)
League of Women Voters
Ku Klux Klan
The United Nations

ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA (ISNA)

Established in 1981 by the Saudi-funded Muslim Students’ Association of the U.S. and Canada (MSA), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) calls itself the largest Muslim organization on the continent. ISNA was created by MSA with the help of one of Palestinian Islamic Jihad's founding students, Sami Al-Arian. Another noteworthy founding member of ISNA was Mahboob Khan.

Today ISNA's annual conventions draw more attendees -- usually over 30,000 -- than any other Muslim gathering in the Western Hemisphere. ISNA’s mission is to function as “an association of Muslim organizations and individuals that provides a common platform for presenting Islam, supporting Muslim communities, developing educational, social and outreach programs and fostering good relations with other religious communities, and civic and service organizations.”

ISNA focuses heavily on providing Wahhabi theological indoctrination materials to a large percentage of the mosques in North America. Many of these mosques were recently built with Saudi money and are required, by their Saudi benefactors, to strictly follow the dictates of Wahhabi imams -- an edict that affects the tone and content of the sermons given in the mosques, the selection of books and periodicals that may be read in mosque libraries or sold in mosque bookshops, and the policies governing the exclusion or suppression of dissenters from the congregations.

Through its affiliate, the North American Islamic Trust -- a Saudi government-backed organization created to fund Islamist enterprises in North America -- the Saudi-subsidized ISNA reportedly holds the mortgages on 50 to 80 percent of all mosques in the U.S. and Canada. Thus the organization can freely exercise ultimate authority over these houses of worship and their teachings.

Writes Kaukab Siddique, the editor of New Trend, an Islamic periodical of extremist views that is nonetheless opposed to Wahhabi domination of American Islam: "ISNA controls most mosques in America and thus also controls who will speak at every Friday prayer, and which literature will be distributed there."

Islam scholar Stephen Schwartz describes ISNA as "one of the chief conduits through which the radical Saudi form of Islam passes into the United States." Adds Schwartz: "Our view is that the number of mosques under Wahhabi control actually totals at least 600 out of the official total of 1,200, while, as noted, Shia community leaders endorse the figure of 80 percent Wahhabi control. But we also offer a number of 4-6,000 mosques overall, including small and diverse congregations of many kinds."

According to Sufi leader Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani’s testimony before a State Department Open Forum on January 7, 1999, extremists have taken over “more than 80 percent of the mosques in the United States ... This means that the ideology of extremism has been spread to 80 percent of the Muslim population, mostly the youth and the new generation.” Kabbani based his statement on his personal investigation of 114 American mosques. “Ninety of them,” he said, “were mostly exposed, and I say exposed, to extreme or radical ideology, based on their speeches, books and board members.” This is largely due to the efforts of ISNA.

According to terrorism expert Steven Emerson, ISNA “is a radical group hiding under a false veneer of moderation”; “convenes annual conferences where Islamist militants have been given a platform to incite violence and promote hatred” (for instance, al Qaeda supporter and PLO official Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi was invited to speak at an ISNA conference); has held fundraisers for terrorists (after Hamas leader Mousa Marzook was arrested and eventually deported in 1997, ISNA raised money for his defense); has condemned the U.S. government’s post-9/11 seizure of Hamas’ and Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s financial assets; and publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Islamic Horizons, that “often champions militant Islamist doctrine.”

Adds Emerson: “I think ISNA has been an umbrella, also a promoter of groups that have been involved in terrorism. I am not going to accuse the ISNA of being directly involved in terrorism. I will say ISNA has sponsored extremists, racists, people who call for Jihad against the United States.”

Emerson further reports that "In September 2002, a full year after the 9/11 attacks, speakers at ISNA's annual conference still refused to acknowledge Bin Laden's role in the terrorist attacks."

WTHR, an Indianapolis television station located close to ISNA’s Plainfield, Indiana headquarters, said it had found “about a dozen charities, organizations and individuals under federal scrutiny for possible ties to terrorism that are in some way linked to ISNA.”

In December 2003, U.S. Senators Charles Grassley and Max Baucus of the Senate Committee on Finance listed ISNA as one of 25 American Muslim organizations that “finance terrorism and perpetuate violence.” ISNA is known to have permitted the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (and a number of other Islamic charities with terror connections) to set up booths at its conventions, and in some cases has helped raise money for them.

Upon learning of the arrest of Sami Al-Arian, the University of South Florida computer science professor who eventually would be found guilty of conspiring to fund the terrorist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad, ISNA issued a statement criticizing the U.S. government for its prosecution of Al-Arian..

ISNA was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document -- titled "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America" -- as one of the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded "organizations of our friends" that shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These "friends" were identified by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions."

seems when there is a roadblock or push back from local communities to the building of mega mosques in their neighborhoods. --Holder and the DOJ come to the rescue helping them get built with the use of our tax dollars for the legal fight.

Does it surprise anyone that terrorists would side with the Brady bums and try to strip us of our ability to defend ourselves?

Screw you Islamic punks. The fact that terrorist appeasers want me to disarm so they feel better just makes me laugh. It also shows me exactly why I will not give up my rights for the cult of hate or the cult of ignorance that is the liberal/progressive movement.
