Texas: Man told to take down his US flag, as itís ďa threat towards the Muslim communityĒ
Jihad Watch ^

Posted on 06/19/2014 6:07:39 AM PDT by don-o

It’s a time-honored principle: when in Muslim countries, you must conform your behavior to Muslim sensibilities. And when in non-Muslim countries, you must conform your behavior to Muslim sensibilities. This is the kind of thing that only happens in nations that have lost their confidence and their way, are vulnerable to any action of their enemies, and in imminent danger of destruction.

“Man says apartment complex called his US flag a ‘threat to Muslim community,’” by Alice Barr, KHOU 11 News, June 18, 2014 (thanks to Robert):

WEBSTER, Texas — A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.

Stepping onto Duy Tran’s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: “It means a lot to me,” he said.

He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.

“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”

We tried to ask a manager if that’s exactly what was said, but she just handed us a statement, refused to answer any questions, and called an officer to escort us off the property, before we could press any further:

If the American flag is offensive to them, shouldn’t they be in a different country?

Of course. Same thing happens in the schools and everywhere else where some PC drone tries to get rid of a flag or a patriotic shirt or a picture of a gun, etc. They have no rationale that they'd be willing to defend in public.

“Man says apartment complex called his US flag a ‘threat to Muslim community,’”

muslims, as a group, HAVE to be the biggest pu$$ie$ in the history of the world. All I ever hear about is ow they are "offended" at every turn. All their big bad jihadists wear masks to conceal their identity. They change their names, so people can't tell who they were before going crazy. The list goes on.

Oh Geez Louise, I thought all muzzies in America were “All-American Muslims” just like the failed reality show.

Why, just google “Hijabi Muslimahs waving American flags!” & see what comes up.

More PC tyranny by petty tyrants. “Called an officer to escort us off the property”.....the b!tch wishes she could call the KGB!

Disgusting................

I have answers for these idiotic statements.

“Mam, these muslims are a threat to America, and you and I have no obligation to accommodate them.”

And that is just my initial civilized response.

That’s true, but I’ve worked with MANY people from Europe, Russia, India, and Asia who think the socialism/fascism of the old country is better to what they are experiencing here. Even with all the jackboots on our freedom the last six years, they are still bewildered by too much choice and too much personal responsibility. That is always deeply dismaying to me.

Muzzies are simply asking for their “rights” since schools in Cali have capitulated to the wetbacks demanding that no US flags are brought to schools since they are offended by them.

Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat

Frontline ^ | Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book
Posted on Monday, March 31, 2008 7:07:45 PM by engrpat..."Received this in a email today.///Thought I would pass it on for everyones information."
(from a soon to be released major work - see book credit at end)

Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components.
The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

Islamization:
Occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called "religious rights."
When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to "the reasonable" Muslim demands for their "religious rights," they also get the other components under the table.

Here's how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)). As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
United States -- Muslim 1.0%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%

China -- Muslim 1%-2%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby
securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%

Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris -- car-burnings). Any non- Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam -- Mohammed cartoons).

Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 10-15%
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
Albania -- Muslim 70%
Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4%
Qatar -- Muslim 77.5%
Sudan -- Muslim 70%
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide: Bangladesh -- Muslim 83%
Egypt -- Muslim 90%
Gaza -- Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1%
Iran -- Muslim 98%
Iraq -- Muslim 97%
Jordan -- Muslim 92%
Morocco -- Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan -- Muslim 97%
Palestine -- Muslim 99%
Syria -- Muslim 90%
Tajikistan -- Muslim 90%
Turkey -- Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of "Dar-es-Salaam" -- the Islamic House of Peace - there's supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Afghanistan -- Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100%
Somalia -- Muslim 100%
Yemen -- Muslim 99.9%


Of course, that's not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons..."Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me
against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel."
-- Leon Uris, "The Haj"

It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

Oh, I think Americans figured out what Islam "is", a long time ago...

"The Koran demands perpetual war against all who deny Mahomet as the prophet of God" - John Quincy Adams
"Treachery and violence are taught as principles of Mohamet's religion" - John Quincy Adams
"While the merciless dogmas of Muhammad remain there can never be peace upon earth" - John Quincy Adams

pay attention to the 5%
We've been warned.

My guess is that The Lodge At El Dorado is owned by muslims and/or by some Soros affiliated individual or group.

Regardless, America is gone.

We are now occupied territory with a steady, unchecked invasion of aliens to whom we are granting full rights and citizenship.

The jury is sill out on what we have or will become, but the America we knew is gone, its remnants slowly dissolving into fond memories, ashes and ink on the pages of history.

This is what I tell him, in my calmest voice.

America is a country. Islam is a religion which has the same freedoms as Christianity and Judaism.

The Muslim lives in America. That is his flag as well as my flag. It isn’t coming down. If he is offended by it, tell him to leave.

But in the Muslim world, religion/country/government are all the same thing. One of things that’s hardest from them to understand about us (and vice-versa) is the Western concept that the state is independent of religion.

This “I’m offended so I’m justified in what I do” is a tactic of the left and that is where the muslims have learned it from.

All I ever hear about is how they are "offended" at every turn.

"Offended" is code speak for "putting the camel's nose under the tent."

The Camel's Nose In The Tent.

One cold night, as an Arab sat in his tent, a camel gently thrust his nose under the flap and looked in. "Master," he said, "let me put my nose in your tent. It's cold and stormy out here." "By all means," said the Arab, "and welcome" as he turned over and went to sleep.

A little later the Arab awoke to find that the camel had not only put his nose in the tent but his head and neck also. The camel, who had been turning his head from side to side, said, "I will take but little more room if I place my forelegs within the tent. It is difficult standing out here." "Yes, you may put your forelegs within," said the Arab, moving a little to make room, for the tent was small.

Finally, the camel said, "May I not stand wholly inside? I keep the tent open by standing as I do." "Yes, yes," said the Arab. "Come wholly inside. Perhaps it will be better for both of us." So the camel crowded in. The Arab with difficulty in the crowded quarters again went to sleep. When he woke up the next time, he was outside in the cold and the camel had the tent to himself.
