CAIR is NOT Our Friend
Dear Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio:
We just experienced Mumbai; the world is in flames. The messenger has wrought destruction upon common people living in Asia, Europe, Africa and here at home in the name of Islam. They have brought jihad. You and I must now acknowledge that Islam is a totalitarian, political ideology dressed in religious garb. You must see to it this topic is brought to the public forum, fully vetted and concrete actions be developed and executed. Reach across the oceans to our allies also under siege and implement a concerted effort to purge the world of the jihadists.
The Muslim Brotherhood has declared 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 and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s [Allah’s] religion is made victorious over all other religions.’ CAIR has been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and its objectives.
Wherever Islam grows, jihad is in play as existing governments and unbelieving (kafir) culture are conquered, by political or violent means. Bombs speak for themselves – they say ‘I kill you.’ However, a second, covert or stealth jihad is underway also, an insurrection which begins with a demand for deferential treatment of Islam, including insistence on religious accommodations, judicial separateness, and general cultural and educational non-integration. In addition, imagined affronts to Islam are claimed and redress demanded.
Islam is supremacist in nature, discriminatory in practice, restricts freedom of thought and action and violates universal human rights. Muslim-Muslim relations are completely separate from Muslim-kafir relations, where deceit is sanctioned. Islam is incompatible with our values and sensibilities of freedom and secularism.
No matter the temperament of individual Muslims, the Islamic community as a whole, the ‘ummah’ drives the process of Islamization in every country where Islam thrives. Violence, legal intimidation, sedition and subversive behavior are common and strategic. Islam and it tenets are the antithesis of our country’s history and free thinking traditions and its growth will suffocate future intellectual, cultural and artistic growth.
You must reconsider your position on CAIR, it does a disservice to your constituents and this country.
