SHOWDOWN: THE HOLY BIBLE vs. THE QURAN

"The right-wing stranglehold on Congress has been broken," declared Joelle Fishman, chair of the Communist Party USA's (CPUSA) political action commission. "Electing the Democrats to control congress is a victory for communism." Fishman delivered her report to the committee as it discussed the results of the election. "With Democrats in charge the future of the Communist Party looks bright," said CPUSA's Executive Vice-chair Jarvis Tyner. Erica Smiley, National Coordinator of the Young Communist League, was buoyant, "The results of the 2006 election indicate a major turning point in our struggle to communize America."
Keith Ellison was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives last month (Fifth Congressional District in the State of Minnesota). The Fifth District is without a doubt overwhelmingly Democrat, the favorite choice of the Communist Party. Citing religious reasons (Ellison says he's a Muslim), he will refuse to take his oath of office on the Bible, only the Quran. This has not set well with a considerable number of Americans.
Chuck Baldwin had this to say in his recent column: "....Contrary to the opinions of some, the birth of the United States is directly linked to the birth of the Savior. At its inception, America was a nation created by Christian men upon Christian principles. Christian thought, Christian virtue, and Christian revival laid America's foundation as surely as there is a sun in the sky." It's a funny thing, but up until the early 1960s, America didn't have a problem being a Christian nation - until the ACLU cranked up their assaults against God in every aspect of public life and look where we are today. Now we have a Muslim who refuses to honor our tradition of using the Bible to swear an oath of office and allegiance to our laws. The Bible has been a part of the swearing in of elected public officials for a very long time. Those elected to public office of the Jewish faith are sworn in using the Bible because it contains the Old Testament. I can already hear the screeching by extremists that America is not a Christian nation, but such a position is not supported by facts: polls from the most respected organizations in this county consistently show between 78-85% of Americans say they are Christians.
I have never been a person who voted for any candidate for public office based on their religious preference, only their qualifications and understanding of the Constitution, including state constitutions. But, when it comes to Islam, the situation changes dramatically for very solid reasons. Can Ellison claim religion as an excuse to snub his nose at our traditions when that religion clashes with our laws? In order to be as fair as possible and gather facts vs. myths, I spent a considerable amount of time researching Islam and Muslims. According to Ten Misconceptions about Islam published by the University of Southern California, USC-MSA Compendium of Muslim Texts:
"Islam is the name of a way of life which the Creator wants us to follow. We avoid the word religion because in many non-Islamic societies, there is a separation of "religion and state." This separation is not recognized at all in Islam: the Creator is very much concerned with all that we do, including the political, social, economic, and other aspects of our society. Hence, Islam is a complete way of life.....Islam is the way of life; Muslims are people who claim to follow that way of life." Muslims claim their religion (way of life) is peaceful, but the facts tell us otherwise. I believe it's well documented that terrorists who are responsible for mass slaughter around this world are Muslims and now they are right here in America in your back yard building their terrorist cells; see here and here. Ask the people in the little town of Lodi, California, 45 miles south of Sacramento:
June 17, 2005, the New California Media reported, "Pakistani community in the farming city of Lodi, Calif., was stunned when FBI last week arrested two Pakistani Americans and three Pakistani nationals for allegedly operating an Al Qaeda cell in the city. One of the men arrested, 22-year Hamid Hayat, is accused in a FBI criminal complaint of training in an Al Qaeda camp in Pakistan to learn 'how to kill Americans' and then lying to FBI agents about it. His father, 47-year Umer Hayat, is charged in the complaint with lying about his son's involvement and his own financing of the Al Qaeda camp. Meanwhile, two Pakistani nationals, Shabbir Ahmed, imam of the Lodi Mosque, and Mohammad Adil Khan, a former Imam of the mosque, were arrested on June 6 on the charge of immigration violations. The next day Mohammad Hassan Adil, 19, son of Mohammad Khan, was also arrested on immigration violations."
According to the sworn affidavit, Hamid Hayat admitted to agents he attended known terrorist camps for six months in 2003 and 2004, where he was trained in how to kill Americans, return to the United States and hide behind his "peaceful" religion. Living only an hour away from Lodi back then, I am very familiar with that round up of Muslims who were in violation of federal immigration laws and had proven involvement with terrorist camps and organizations. This is not an isolated situation. Hayat was convicted on terrorism charges; see here. Just your friendly, peaceful Muslim next door, right?
Of course not all Muslims are terrorists, but many of us legitimately wondered why after 911, talk show pundits had to keep begging Muslim spokesmen in leadership positions with the Muslim faithful to denounce violence committed by Muslims? To me, it was a very vivid picture of how to hide your true feelings while spinning pat responses. Enough credible research clearly shows that Muslims, despite their denials, hate Americans because in their eyes, we are "non believers" of their Allah. We are infidels. If you think that's an unfair statement, just consider the massive violence and destruction by Muslims over silly cartoons or anyone who disagrees with their Muhammad or "way of life" outlined in the Quran. In my research I found a web site dedicated to stopping the abuse of women and children in the name of the Prophet Mohammad. Dr. Homa Darabi was born to her mother, a child bride at age 13. Dr. Darabi brings to light abuses under Islam against women and the practice of pedophila.
According to the USC-MSA Compendium of Muslim Texts referenced above, "Allah orders us in this verse to conduct our matters by taking counsel among ourselves, or by consulting each other. This is the methodology of the Islamic state, to consult one another, but to always keep the Qur'an and Sunnah paramount. "Any law which contradicts the Qur'an or Sunnah is unlawful." Ellison cannot take an oath with his hand on the Quran and swear his allegiance to what it demands and swear to uphold our Constitution and Bill of Rights because they are incompatible. (Definition of Sunnah: The way of life prescribed as normative in Islam, based on the teachings and practices of Muhammad and on exegesis of the Koran. Also called hadith. Muhammad's way of life viewed as a model for Muslims." Muhammad married a child of six and had sex with her at age nine. Some role model.)
Americans need to take very seriously what has happened to France and England as a result of their "tolerance" of Muslims flooding into their countries and then demanding those countries cave into their demands or feel their wrath. How quickly people forget how these "peaceful" people lit a match to cities in France while they rioted day after day; see here. If you think this isn't what's coming to America, think again because the agenda is to force Islam on Americans and destroy our Christian nation. How long before Muslims like Keith Ellison who get elected to Congress began to simply ignore our laws or demand Sharia law replace our laws:
"Sharia, derived from several sources including the Koran, is applied to varying degrees in predominantly Muslim countries but it has no binding status in Britain. However, the BBC Radio 4 programme Law in Action produced evidence yesterday that it was being used by some Muslims as an alternative to English criminal law. Aydarus Yusuf, 29, a youth worker from Somalia, recalled a stabbing case that was decided by an unofficial Somali "court" sitting in Woolwich, south-east London."
Organizations like CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) will lead the way in demanding we flush our laws to accommodate theirs. As someone who follows very closely the activities of organizations like CAIR, I am not afraid to call it as I see it: CAIR's principle mouthpieces are little better than thugs in expensive suits using religion to promote their "way of life" and intimidate gutless politicians in Washington, DC and the state houses. If these sissy, prissy, politicians don't cave, out comes the old, reliable smear tactics of "racism" and "bigotry." These people have redefined the term "spin masters." While they mouth PC platitudes like, "We revere Jesus," Muslims believe Jesus was some run of the mill prophet and not the Son of God, which is blasphemous to Christians.
I continue to see this statement come from the media and other sources: "There are 1.1 billion Muslims in the world." How do they know that? Who went out and counted heads? No one seems to know where this number, taken as fact, came from or when. One thing I do know: Muslims intend that one day America be a Muslim nation. I refer you now to an unsolicited e-mail I received from the Islamic Center of Beverly Hills titled Current Issues: Republicans, Democrats and Islamic Solutions. I put this in a pdf file here. In this comparison table, the Islamic solution to foreign policy for America is: "Promote world government under United Nations. In Islam nationalism is similar to racism." Keith Ellison, as a Muslim, pledges his allegiance to Islam which believes America should not exist as a sovereign nation. They close out their laundry list by stating: "We are 10 million American-Muslim now we must grow 5% per year so in 2070 we must have 100 million Muslims in America...We need more Islamic school in America to promote peaceful, loving and caring Islam to our future generations."
Keith Ellison thinks America is a democracy, which clearly demonstrates he has no understanding of our legal form of government and is not qualified to serve in the U.S. Congress. He is for rewarding criminals by allowing those who have smuggled themselves across our borders (illegal aliens) with a free pass for citizenship. Ellison uses lots of cleverly worded "fellowship" propaganda, but he is not opposed to sodomites and lesbians marrying, which is in direct opposition to the "way of life" required under Islam. Ellison is for murdering unborn babies, also in opposition to the "way of life" required in Islam. Ellison goes from being a Catholic (abortion is forbidden as well as homosexuality and "same sex" marriages) to the Nation of Islam, to being a good pro-sodomy, pro-abortion Democrat. It would appear Ellison is a quick change artist who uses what ever works for his agenda. Should he be allowed to serve in Congress? I believe as Judge Roy Moore so succinctly states in his recent column that he should not:
"Islamic law is simply incompatible with our law. Jaafar Sheikh Idris, founder and chairman of American Open University, a radical Islamic school that has received funding from suspected al-Qaida sources and which supports Islamic law, recently stated that "Islam cannot be separated from the state," and that no Muslim elected to Congress or the White House can swear to uphold the United States Constitution and still be a Muslim, because the law of Allah as expressed in the Quran is supreme. Idris was recently deported for his illegal activities. While we certainly disagree with Idris' radical extremism, he at least knows what Islam is all about!"
Let me sum this up: Ellison's a Democrat who advocates their communist agenda including pro-abortion, pro-homosexual and same sex marriage, which is completely diametric to the tenets of Islam. He claims he's a Muslim, but doesn't follow the teachings of Islam. If he isn't following the teachings of Islam, how can he say he's only following his religion when he demands that he be allowed to use the Quran to take his oath of office? Remember: "Any law which contradicts the Qur'an or Sunnah is unlawful." Legally, I'm not sure how this could be done, but Keith Ellison should not be sworn into office to serve in the U.S. Congress because he cannot uphold his oath. The oath of office taken by members of Congress is in complete conflict with his Islamic laws.
