Skip to comments.The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and the Community's Response

As another example I have been present at Friday prayers in 2004 at one of the largest mosques in Arizona where a photo distributed nationally by CAIR and later proven to be doctored showed an American soldier standing with two young Iraqi boys holding a sign that says, "he killed my dad and knocked up my sister." (Appendix 2) As offended as I was as a Navy veteran, the imam and CAIR ended up pathologically alienating the Muslims in that audience from an American heritage.
CAIR and MPAC have typically renounced the use of terror and violence, but they have never taken a position against the ideology of Political Islam. They both have also been the primary antagonists to efforts by law enforcement to understand and mitigate the real stages of radicalization of Muslims in America. In 2007, under the umbrella of the Muslim American Civil Liberties Coalition (MACLC), CAIR-NY and MPAC -NY authored "Counterterrorism policy, MACLC's critique of the NYPD's report on homegrown radicalism." The paper is a response to NYPD's report "Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat." In it, the organizations lay out their belief that, "The study of violent extremism, however, should decouple religion from terror to safeguard civil liberties on free speech and equal protection grounds as a matter of strong public policy." Rather than demonize this great work, these groups should have admitted that it was work Muslims should have been doing.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism recently noted that, "Though Muslims represent about 1 percent of the American population; they constitute defendants in 186 of the 228 cases DOJ lists." (Appendix 5). As a Muslim that loves my faith, I also realize that there is a unifying common ideology, a theo-political separatism that is driving this radicalization.

“Radicalization” means they act like the original Muhammed did?
IMHO, these people have NO intention of assimilating into American culture. They treat me well enough; they think I have money and power (a vast overstatement), but they treat service people like dog droppings. Muslims are moving into positions of power on local boards and winning regional elections. This country's in for a nasty surprise.
Are Muslims radicalizing Americans? You bet. Apparently being a communist, an anarchist, or a green gorilla warrior are old hat now, and the halfwits and weirdos are keen on learning to kill infidels.
Islam is jihad. It gets progressively worse as the numbers of Muslims increase.
I have the live stream on now of the hearings...
Jackie Speier (Dumbie/CA) just asked Dr. Jasser if he thought he has the expertise to speak on the subject??? She would like to see EXPERTS testify!!! He makes more sense than any democrat there.....
She praised Sheriff Baca as the only one who really knows what he’s talking about because he’s the only one being questioned who is blowing smoke!!!!
