Converted Muslims embrace new faith, celebrate end of Ramadan
Miami Herald ^ | July 27, 2014 | Monica Disare

Posted on 07/28/2014 9:21:21 PM PDT by lilyramone

Keyla Calix, a 25-year-old Honduran living in downtown Miami, didn’t think her friend’s gift of a Quran would lead her to reject her Catholic upbringing.

But two years later, after a serious evaluation of Islam sparked by the holy book, she will head to a mosque Monday morning for Eid al-Fitr, a celebration that marks the end of Ramadan.

“My family thought that Islam was just for Arabs,” Calix said, “but Islam is for everyone, not just for Arabs or Pakistani.”

Miami’s Islamic community will celebrate the end of Islam’s holy month alongside a series of new beginnings, like Calix’s. She is part of a growing segment of Miami’s population converting to Islam, according to Miami’s Islamic leaders.

It’s all about leftism and the void they have. Anything that’s against their perceived old white guy Judeo-Christian way of life is all they care about.

A freeloading, scumbag Honduran comes to the U.S. and becomes a Muzzie. I’ll bet she cheered on 09-11-01. Anybody else want to take in a few “unaccompanied minors” from Honduras?

Catholics get a little crucifix and anger, Jews, a beanie and guilt, Baptists, the Good Book signed by the minister and elders, and a bath towel ....

It didn’t take me five minutes to find a bunch of Islamist agitation propaganda from this Keyla Calix. Apparently the reporter at the Miami Herald didn’t seem interested in investigating his subject very deeply.

Sure. It’s all about religion with her. Sounds like they ‘converted’ her nicely.

I have to wonder what the criteria is for a foreign national living in the USA to have to register as a foreign agent for enjoining political protests?

Everyone? ‘Kill Christians and Jews’ (Koran 9:29-30). Anyone who embraces that is the enemy, including US “citizens”.

Islam seems very attractive, on the surface, to those who are at the lower edge of the intelligence scale and/or who feel envy at the success and perceived power of others. The Koran is filled with instances of “permission” to its believers to subjugate (and by implication, punish) the very people those believers envied. It’s only after they’ve been pulled in by the empty promises do they discover the chains they’re required to wear, and by then it’s too late. And thus the ranks continue to swell. It’s the Barnum principle in action.

....”.Hispanics converting to Muz”......

Sure they will....understand that the Moslem community services are intended to reach out to those in dire need in order to convert them....that’s the hook....feed them, help them, establish them......

It’s really not surprising...but the numbers should give many a wake up call of CREEPING ISLAM Islam across our nation....This is just one community...

From the article:

...”Twenty years ago, there were 5 mosques in the Miami area..... Now, there are about 30...Two to three people a month are converting to Islam in ‘each’ South Florida mosque.”

Apparently Ms Calix doesn’t keep up with news very much. Let her spend a week in Saudi Arabia or Iran, then she can tell us how wonderful is-lam is.

....”some group should make it their mission to deal with the problem”.....

Not going to happen....the public outcry by liberals would be deafening. It all starts in the home and our families are anything but stable today.

Further....Hispanics and other foreigners coming in do not have our history....so they are especially vulnerable to being misled by anything which “itches there ears”. They do not have discerning minds sufficient to tell the difference between falsehood and truth. Most are followers who come here...and or “activists” for their own agenda’s and causes.....there’s little middleground...if any.

[ Has she had her clitoris lopped-off as yet? ]

I had to wonder about that too, but then I wonder if the Taquiya in converting her is that it won't happen until after she reached the "inner circle" and by then she will be completely broken and buqua-ized...

She will probably have one of these in her future should she decide to take the Haj into Mecca-lecca-hi...

I’m surprised they haven’t found a way to use a biting animal like a badger on a rope to perform the so called “sacred cultural act of love” to paraphrase a liberal and Jeb Bush...

Since 9/11 only woke people up for a short while, before most of them went back to sleep, I wonder just for how long a mushroom cloud will wake them up? The gloves should have come off already, and essentially, they didn't.

While that may be true to a point, maybe one of the reasons, is because the right is busy working 16 hour shifts, to support those on the left, who don't work, because they are busy getting organized.

Interesting religious approach by The Miami Herald on the illegal question. Wonder of this will be “carried” in the New York Times ? If it does that will be the next “sidebar” trend being issued by the pervert press.

I’m sure she’ll be heading to Iraq very soon to embrace that cherished Islamic ritual.

Unless the Obungler cancels the 2016 election, and declares himself president for life, like Idi Amin Dada did, our enemies have about two years to hit us with nuclear weapons, without having to worry much about consequences. I heard Oliver North say once, that we should warn North Korea and Iran, that if a nuc goes off anywhere in the world, their countries will cease to exist as viable societies. If Harry Truman or Ronald Reagan were in power, the Norks and Iranians might work hard to curtail terrorism. They would be scared sh!tless of another Ronald Reagan.
