5 Ways Muslims Have Contributed to 'Building the Very Fabric of Our Nation'
PJ Media ^ | 08-02-2014 | Robert Spencer

Posted on 08/02/2014 11:07:10 AM PDT by BlueHorseShoe

Last Sunday, in his message congratulating Muslims on Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, Barack Obama wrote: “Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.” That’s right: he said “many achievements and contributions.” I could only think of five. Maybe you will be able to think of some more.

Actually, Churchill said it best, over a century ago: “Fearful the curse that Islam lays on its votaries....”

The Muslim Barbery pirates caused Thomas Jefferson to start the US Marine Corps.

I’d say that GREATLY contributed to the fabric of our nation.

Semper Fi!

The Barbary pirates also hastened the building of the Navy and the USS Constitution also.

So...Muslims have contributed not so much on the very fabric of this nation, but as a stain on that fabric. And a bloody stain at that.

Basically, none of them positive. But isn’t that the traditional pattern of everything Islam touches?

If by “build” is meant “dismantle”, then yeah, Zero’s correct.

Thanks BlueHorseShoe.

Islam is a terrorist cult. They’re true in their leader mohammad. It’s a disease anywhere it’s found around the world.

Muslims stole medicine and mathematics plagiarizing Indians, and then gave it to Westerners because they thought it was an unworthy trade for slaves and not for “honest” “conquerors” and thieves.

Patches of muslin were used in the rifles and muskets of the revolutionary War era. Muslims invented muslin. That’s how Muslims contributed to the FABRIC of American society.

In other words, Muslims contributed to the building of America in the same way AIDS contributes to medical research.

Eid spelled backwards is what these radical muslims want to see happen to Christians and Jews alike.

I think the thing that pisses me off the most about all of this are those who say that the vast majority of Muslims are peace-loving people. Really? Do they have a set of vocal chords? If they do, where is the outcry against those in their cult who go around hacking people apart. Even in those countries where Islam controls a 95% or greater majority, those countries tend to be the most violent in the world. The two major factions think nothing about strolling into a market, blowing themselves and 50 other Muslims up, and think it’s okay to do so. Where’s the outrage by this peace-loving majority? It’s a myth.

Urban renewal and population control are big liberal priorities.

It's no wonder liberals love Islamic terrorists.

comrade obamatollah continues practicing what one of his fellow leftwing socialist idols preached...

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” - Josef Goebbels

I couldn’t agree more. Where is the passion and outrage! Are they so fearful of retaliation?

They’ve also made one of the world’s greatest advances in psychiatric medicine: turning a whole geographic area, the Gaza Strip, into one gigantic reverse mental hospital that takes already marginal youth, the products of Islamicly inspired generalized incest, and turns them into mass murdering psychotics. Truly a great thing, Islamic Medical Science.

Javier, Penelope, Selena and all the other supporters of Hamas never see these pics do they? The only way to deal with barbarians is with overwhelming force. The Israelis have learned this the hard way, our politicians have yet to learn this.
