Rodan is Wrong

Irrationality reared its ugly head at Blogocracy.

Initially, Rodan opined that Islam should be banned because “It is not only Muslim immigrants that are a threat.”. Subsequently, he retracts hes call for banning Islam on the basis of a reader comment from Lance. Lance argued that banning Islam would lead to banning Christianity.

ban islam and christianity and judiasm follow.

1st amendment applies or it doesn’t.

it doesn’t allow them to commit terrorism, but they can still face east and pray to a black rock if they wish.

remember that there are many who come here to escape oppression.

I will take on Rodan first. Involvement by native converts and Muslims born here is irrelevant to the question of whether Islam should be banned. Islam should be banned or tolerated based on its mission, doctrines and practices, not the identity of its adherents.

Lance’s argument that banning Islam implies banning religions is illogical because there is good cause for banning Islam. Unlike Judiasm & Christianity, Islam has a mercenary mission and militant methods. It issues a mandatory license to kill, enslave, rape, pillage & plunder. Jihad is “ordained for Muslims”. That means Jihad is mandatory, not optional. Jihad is their “original religion“, abandoning it in favor of productive pursuits subjects them to a curse from Allah.The Bible neither issues an open license to kill nor threatens adherents with Hellfire for failing to engage in offensive conquest.

Islam’s mercenary mission, evident in 8:1, 8:41, 8:67 & 48:20, its mandate to global conquest in 8:39, 9:29 & 9:123, its mandate to cast terror in 8:12 and its mandate to genocide in 8:67 & 47:4 make Islam absolutely intolerable. Those Qur’an verses have no functional equivalent in the Bible.

The free exercise clause prevents Congress from passing laws abridging the free exercise of religion. Jihad, terrorism & genocide are intrinsic sacraments of Islam; they can not be prohibited by law unless the first amendment is reinterpreted or amended. Islam is inseverable; Jihad can not be separated from Iman, Salat & Zakat.

It is true that many Muslims fled to America and Europe to escape from prosecution by the “hypocrites” whose tyrannical regimes they sought to overthrow and supplant with their own corrupt theocracy. That does nothing to change the fact that Islam is a war cult which wears a thin veil of religion as a camouflage and troop motivator.

Ban Islam

One of my Google Alerts returned a link to a discussion thread at alt.religion.islam. The post was by kangarooistan, who titled it “There’s a group called ” BAN ISLAM ” help us to delete it”. Kangarooistan’s post is intended to initiate a movement to pressure Face Book to delete a discussion board titled “Ban Islam.”

I will not reproduce the complete drivel here, instead I will refute a few key deceptions which need to be addressed directly.

This group is created because there has been a breach of contract by the creator of the Group “Ban Islam” and Face book needs to address this issue as a group demoralizing any religion is disrespectful and encourages religious hatred among people…

The group began with an obscenity in its name, Face Book objected and the organizers changed the name.

  • demoralizing any religion is disrespectful and encourages religious hatred among people

While some posters swing the heavy hammers of condemnation & execration, others post relevant factual evidence to support their conclusions. We tell the truth about Islam and they interpret it as demonization. Yes, kangarooistan chose the wrong word. Islam is immoral and demonic, by design.

  • .encourages religious hatred among people

That is what the Qur’an does, but it goes further, inciting genocidal violence. The Skeptic’s Annotated Qur’an lists 527 ayat which incite religious hatred.

Of course there is a freedom of speech.. BUT, There is no freedom of abusing, spamming, swearing or disrespecting!

Kangarooistan is a clever liar, the sentence quoted above is an exemplar of kitman: lying by commission or concealment. We can discover the truth of this matter by examining Islam’s all purpose handbook of Shari’ah: Reliance of the Traveller.

  • O11.10-5 or mentions something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam

Any negative remark about Islam breaks the covenant of dhimmitude and forfeits the dhimmi’s life.

  • O8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam
  • -4- to revile Allah or His messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace);

  • -5- to deny the existence of Allah, His beginingless eternality, His endless eternality, or to deny any of His attributes which the consensus of Muslims ascribes to Him (dis: v1);

  • -6- to be sarcastic about Allah’s name, His command, His interdiction, His promise, or His threat;

  • -7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;

  • -15- to hold that any of Allah’s messengers or prophets are liars, or to deny their being sent;
  • -16- to revile the religion of Islam;

Remember the penalty for apostasy!

  • O8.1

    When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

  • O8.2

    In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

Every one has a right to oppose & criticize others’ belief but in a positive and gentle way..

If you oppose or criticize Islam in any place where Allah’s writ runs, they’ll kill you for it!

Earth is sweltering with the heat of tyrant and brutality.. Let’s transform it into an oasis of peace and love!.. Let’s say no to hate!
Let’s stand against the racism.. We all are created equal… Let’s respect the differences!.. Neither any religion nor any philosophy preach hate… So let’s join hand and walk together to make the earth a wonderful planet…

  • Let’s transform it into an oasis of peace and love!

Translation: convert the entire world to Islam, by force or deception, then it’ll all be peachy keen.

  • Neither any religion nor any philosophy preach hate

Islam is neither a religion nor a philosophy; it is a way of life: predation! It preaches hate and genocidal violence. 8:37 mandates perpetual war against pagans until only Allah is worshiped. 9:29 mandates perpetual war against Jews, Christians & Zoroastrians until they are subjugated and submit to annual extortion. 8:67 sets “great slaughter” as Moe’s price of admission to Paradise. 47:4 commands killing and wounding “many of them”. One Jewish settlement surrendered after a long siege. Moe decapitated the men, then he examined the boys, and decapitated any who had reached adolescence. Genocide, anyone? The historical record is here: Sunan Abu Dawud 38.4390. See also Sahih Bukhari 4.52.280.

Islam is aggressive, offensive, predatory, genocidal and mercenary. I have presented much of the evidence in this post. Click the links and see for yourself. If any doubt remains, read What’s Wrong with Islam/Muslims and follow the links therein contained.

Cultural Difference: Jihad Imperatives

http://www.bclocalnews.com/vancouver_island_south/victorianews/opinion/39418024.html

Now comes Victoria News with a one sided approach to inter-cultural dialog. Google alerted me to the existence of their editorial from which I have quoted a few excerpts out of context with my comments.

EDITORIAL: Conversations about ethnic and cultural differences right way to go

This arises in context of Lorenzo Bouchard’s campaign to ban Islam from Canada. He allegedly posted demands for an Islam ban on bulletin boards at a local university. Subsequently, Muslim students claimed to be in fear for their physical safety because of those postings.

Fears about safety have been churned up in the Muslim student community at the University of Victoria recently

Is there any rational basis for those ‘fears”, or are they the product of paranoia or political expediency? Does Lorenzo Bouchard have a proven history of making or carrying out threats of physical violence? Was there any threatening language in those posters? While those questions remain unanswered, I will presume that the claims of “fears” are the product of political expediency.

There are violent passages in virtually all sacred religious texts, including some that target specific groups and some simply declaring the omnipotence of the god figure.

I am only familiar with Christian & Islamic scripture. Are Buddhists & Hindus engaging in Jihad? Did they perpetrate the attacks at Beslan, London, Madrid or New York? Then why bring up other scriptures?

The fact is that Islam’s scripture contains open ended, outcome oriented Jihad imperatives without chronological or geographic limits. I present the text of those ayat as translated by Hilali & Khan, with links to parallel translations and to Ibn Kathir’s Tafsir. [Emphasis added.]

  • 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.
  • 9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
  • Those are fight…until loops with compound terminal conditions; without time limits. They are not anachronisms. Their revelator prophesied that Jihad would continue until the last day.

    • …and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist)…. Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526

    The entire world must be conquered, no matter how long it takes, and Muslims will be cursed if they abandon their duty, as made clear in this hadith.

    • Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

      Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

      I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

    Can you connect the dots?

    • and give up conducting jihad
      • until you return to your original religion

      Conducting Jihad is their religion. I do not find in the Christian Gospels any direct equivalent to Islam’s Jihad imperative. If you find one, please submit the book chapter & verse.

      We must be careful as a society not to encourage the ignorance-based idea that everyone who adheres to a particular faith will interpret those passages the same way.

      Muslims are not empowered to interpret their scripture, which includes two types of verses: clear and unclear. The clear verses contain Allah’s commands, including those cited above, and his rules, etc. which are to be believed in and implemented. The clear verses do not require interpretation. The meaning of the clear verses has been fixed by scholars, based upon Moe’s sunnah. The unclear verses have meanings known only to Allah, and are to be believed but not implemented. To fully comprehend this, you need to read 3:7 and its tafsir.

      • 3:7. It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad ) the Book (this Qur’ân). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkâm (commandments, etc.), Al-Farâ’id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allâh. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: “We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord.” And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabarî).
      • …The Muhkamat are the Ayat that explain the abrogating rulings, the allowed, prohibited, laws, limits, obligations and rulings that should be believed in and implemented. As for the Mutashabihat Ayat, they include the abrogated Ayat, parables, oaths, and what should be believed in, but not implemented…. The Mutashabihat and Muhkamat Ayat

      Moe demonstrated the meaning of 8:39 & 9:29 by waging numerous wars, as reported in his sunnah. Follow the links to the hadith cited above and use the links in the left side bar to go up to the next few levels and read the several books of Jihad in the four collections at USC. While Ibn Kathir goes into detail about the orders to fight, other exegetes find them so obvious that no elaboration is required. Examine these examples; note how Maududi goes into great detail about Jizya, but not the order to fight.

      The ban Islam campaign also calls for the destruction of the Qur’an, the Islamic holy book. On some levels, that’s like saying we should ban other religions because their holy texts refer to non-believers as heathens who should be destroyed.

      Please substantiate this assertion. Lorenzo’s petitions* call for Islam to be banned, they do not mention destroying the Qur’an. They also explicitly state the grounds on which Islam should be outlawed.

      To: Prime Minister of Canada (Stephen Harper)

      IN THE INTEREST OF HUMAN VALUES AND UNIVERSAL LOVE, WE DIRECT THIS PETITION TO OUR PRIME MINISTER,THE HONORABLE STEPHEN HARPER AND ALL MEMBERS OF OUR DEMOCRATIC PARLIAMENT.

      WE, THE UNDERSIGNED CANADIAN PETITIONERS, REQUEST A BAN ON THE ORGANIZATION CALLED ISLAM. WE REQUEST THIS BAN DUE TO THE CRIMINAL ACTS OF IT’S FOUNDER, MOHAMMED AND THE KORAN’S DOCTRINES WHICH LEGITIMIZES PAEDOPHILIA, ASSASSINATIONS, THE OPPRESSION OF WOMEN BY SUPPRESSING THEIR HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE UTILIZATION OF TERROR AS A WEAPON OF INTIMIDATION AND CONTROL.

      Sincerely,

      *

      But in this day and age, we must be vigilant when individuals or groups with a certain viewpoint threaten – either implicitly or directly – the well-being of others who are minding their own business.

      It appears to this reader that your editorial is casting innuendo against Lorenzo Bouchard, accusing him of threatening Muslims. If you have evidence of any threat, why don’t you publish it?

      The business of Islam; of Muslims is Jihad. Must we be vigilant against those who explicitly threaten our well being? It appears that you have no clue concerning the application of your own expression. I will therefore cite Islamic law, which requires a minimum of one military attack against Dar al-Harb in every year. The following quotes are from Umdat as-Salik. [Book O, Chapter 9.]

      O9.1 …As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims. The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, “Jihad is a communal obligation,” meaning upon the Muslims each year….

      O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad

      The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,

      “Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled” (Koran 9.29),

      the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus’ descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet’s saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),

      “I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,”

      this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).

      When Muslims carry out demonstrations, they frequently display signs urging our decapitation and proclaiming that Islam will conquer and dominate us. What do you say about those threats?

      The Somali’s Only Documented Act of Assimilation – Voting

      Originally posted by Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook

      Tyson Foods’ cancellation of the Labor Day holiday for their employees in Tennessee – instead giving them a Muslim holiday – want it or not – on the day decreed by Islam, was the final nail for me.

      A reader and great blogger Holger Awakens left the following story on one of my comment threads. Think about the significance of Holger’s last paragraph:

      Many, many years ago, the State of Minnesota led the nation in extending an invitation to the people of South Vietnam to come to Minnesota and start a new life – much of that was coordinated by the churches in Minnesota. These Vietnamese refugees came to Minnesota and after a few growing pains, assimilated into American and Minnesota society and have been a truly miraculous contributing segment of society.

      The same experiment was tried with Somalis coming to Minnesota, yet now after several years, the muslims of Somalia in Minnesota continue to fight assimilation and instead demand conforming to THEIR way of life. They have brought crime and divisiveness to Minnesota where the Vietnamese brought an ethic of hard work and honor.

      P.S. the one documented act of assimilation into Minnesota society by the Somalis was in 2006 when they massed at the voting precincts in Minneapolis to cast their votes. And who did they help elect? The moutpiece for the Nation of Islam, Keith Ellison.

      In a previous post, Tyson Foods Brings Latent Tuberculosis to Emporia, KS, I asked how hundreds of sick Somalis were allowed into the United States under the guise of working for Tyson Foods.

      I don’t have the answer but the problem is far more convoluted than presented by the author of a Topeka Capital-Journal piece, who viewed a huge influx of Somali “humanitarian refugees” as “exotic.”

      H/T to reader Bob for providing this link: On December 9, 2007 Tom Squitieri writing for NewsMax reported the death of a Somalia man inside the Emporia, KS Tyson plant in January 2007. After that death from tuberculosis, health officials reported 160 cases of latent TB among the “humanitarian refugees.”

      Again, here’s the question? How did they make it into the U.S.? The Center for Disease Control says visas will not be issued to diseased individuals unless the Attorney General requests waives inadmissibility on health related issues. Is the U.S. Attorney General. I would assume so. Who requested that these men be allowed into the U.S.? It must be Tyson Foods, and why would that request be granted?

      The Emporia, KS debacle is but a tip of the iceberg. From Newsmax:

      Local officials say the case represents only a small part of the growing problem of foreign-born, unassimilated communities with high rates of communicable diseases such as TB and HIV. Many say they need help from Washington, which has been silent on the issue for too long.

      We have not really gotten Congress to engage, which I would like to see occur, Peggy Mast, an 11-year Republican state representative from Kansas whose district includes Emporia, tells Newsmax. I have talked with some of the offices and they think it is more of a state issue . . .

      Well, I assume it was not THE STATE that admitted these refugees to the U.S. in the first place. Oh, there’s so much to say about this one, but I’ll skip my rant for now, because there is more:

      Take a look at this:

      The U.S. government has agreed to resettle more than 12,000 Somalis who fled their war-torn country in the past decade. Many have been living in refugee camps in Kenya prior to coming to America.

      So these 12,000 are already here – have been here for at least a year.

      Mandatory health screenings are frequently put off for several months after the immigrants arrival. Those who blend into the secretive, tight-knit Somali community often do not resurface to be tested for communicable disease, officials complain.

      Mast says that all levels of government need to be more pro-active in dealing with the issue of immigration workers, as it has opened up many additional areas of concerns including community safety, cultural clashes, and a long-term financial drain on communities where unskilled immigrants congregate for employment.

      So at least someone is admitting that cultural clashes are a reality, and that communities suffer LONG-TERM financial harm – and these immigrants are “unskilled,” to boot, so why did we bring them over? Oh, of course, it was for humanitarian reasons. What about the humanity right here in the U.S. working and paying our taxes each and every day – for what, to pay the damage control for Tyson Foods ?

      When the U.S. chooses to be benevolent, there are right ways and wrong ways to go about it. This is the wrong way. These “refugees,” were no doubt starving and living in unspeakable circumstances, but if we’re going to bring the sick and the hungry to America, bring the children. There will be no cultural clashes, they will not hole-up in patriarchial cults, their diseases can be cured or controlled, they will have a chance for honest freedom and will not be invested in changing ours. This may not be viable – probably for certain isn’t, but…

      Back to Emporia:

      Mast said the TB infections in the Somali community Emporia, a city of 28,000 people, the third highest TB rate in Kansas.

      [The Somali community] is dealing with active cases now, she tells Newsmax. This population is extremely difficult to track and it is hard to treat them. You have to make sure they are compliant with the medication and make sure they finish it up.

      Remember Andrew Speaker and his bride, Sarah? They had a fairytale wedding in Greece, honeymoon in Italy. Got a phone call in their bridal suite from the CDC. He was told that the authorities would arrive in “hours,” to place him in quarantine. Well they found Andrew Speaker, from Atlanta, via Greece, in Italy, but they can’t rout-out the tuberculer Somalis in Emporia, KS.

      The truth is, they don’t want to find them – it’s not politically correct to intrude on a the privacy of a Muslim community.

      Officials admit:

      …that latent TB and other infectious diseases are prevalent among Somali and other humanitarian refugees arriving in the U.S.

      She [Mast] said there has been little family reunification among the male workers something that could occur in the future and further exacerbate the problem and stress the community financially and culturally.

      I had to reread that one a couple of times. I can only assume that these male refugees have not yet brought their refugee families to the U.S. – and if and when they do, the problems multiply.

      Peggy Mast, the Gazette says, is an “11 year Republican state representative from Kansas whose district includes Emporia…” We’ll I’m almost speechless:

      [Mast says] There have already been several cultural clashes. This is a disservice to the population you are bringing in and you are inviting a cultural clash, Mast says. The fact there is such a cultural clash and where you have active TB cases, you only have to guess to imagine the fear that spreads through the community.

      Here’s a Conservative warning of the disservice to the “population” brought to the U.S. under the guise of humane refugee status – and they are sick with a communicable disease, they are trouble makers and they have no interest in “communing” with Americans.

      Obviously, Ms. Mast hasn’t lived in a Muslim country, because if she had, she would know all about unfair cultural clashes. Instead, she chides the people of Emporia for adding to the burden of the Somali refugees.

      Here’s a snippet from Peggy Mast’s website:

      I believe that Kansas families deserve leaders who are capable of implementing positive change…leaders who understand the unique character of our communities, the strength of our citizens, and the importance of our children’s future.

      During challenging times, state government needs experienced leadership rooted in conservative values that can make a difference for our communities.

      I pledge to continue to be a voice for the people I represent and not special interest groups. Putting the people of my district first has always been my top priority.

      Mast’s website also says: “If you live in the city of Emporia, Peggy may or may not represent you,…”

      The question is, is the Tyson Food plant in District 76 – Peggy’s District? Is she invested in cheap labor for Tyson? Can there be another reason that she would make such charges against her constituency? As I look through her website I see that she is quite conservative – supporting second amendment rights to “keep and bear arms,” including giving her vote for “conceal and carry” legislation.

      Reading the comment thread in various Kansas newspapers, her constituents seem to think she is doing a good job.

      Mast is calling on the Feds for thorough screenings “on refugees entering the U.S.”

      In addition to health concerns, she said there should be mandatory cultural education to help refugees assimilate.

      Mast says “they [the Somalis] do not understand the culture.”

      It’s not only the Somalis. Americans have learned and are beginning to accept that most Muslims, not all, will never understand our culture, refuse to understand it – it is the culture of infidels:

      [Mast again] Men tend not to show respect for women. They are very demanding and do not respect other peoples space, Mast says. Additionally, she said the limited language skills have caused communication issues beyond simple day-to-day contact.

      For example, Mast says most of the Somalis in Emporia are single males who live in a cluster near Emporia State University. She said several female students complained of being extremely intimidated by the Somali men’s presence.

      Islam knows no respect for women. God bless the women and children because the Muslim men have a plan and it’s not pretty. This is something that our Government cannot legislate.

      We must keep these people out of the United States. As jaded as I am, I still believe in legal immigration from Arab countries for people who have jobs, can support themselves, want to be among Americans and most importantly, understand and co-operate with us as we surveil their every move, if and when necessary.

      Here’s Mast worrying about the “sense of security” for the Somalis again:

      We look down the road and see the problems they can create. Unemployed single males with nothing to do.

      Mast says the inconsistency of some of the authorities does not help create any sense of security.

      She notes that it is cultural for Somalis to marry up to four wives at one time.

      Is this now legal in the U.S. – can they come here and do this, or has a local court conspired with the local back street iman to carry on business as usual – as is done routinely in Britain ?

      My concern is multiple children: Is our society prepared to take responsibility for caring for that size of the family? [Sponsors] say it will be a major resettlement [in Emporia]. The community is not ready for this, Mast says.

      Where in all this dialog from Ms. Mast is the culpability of Tyson Foods?

      About 3/4ths of the way through this post, I found that Tyson “restructured” its Emporia plant. In January 2008 they announced the coming lay-off of 1500-2400 jobs. How many of those were Somalian refugees and where are they now? Where are the 12,000 Somalis that the U.S. agreed to resettle?

      Mandatory health screenings are frequently put off for several months after the immigrants arrival. Those who blend into the secretive, tight-knit Somali community often do not resurface to be tested for communicable disease, officials complain.

      Mast says that all levels of government need to be more pro-active in dealing with the issue of immigration workers, as it has opened up many additional areas of concerns including community safety, cultural clashes, and a long-term financial drain on communities where unskilled immigrants congregate for employment.

      So at least someone is admitting that cultural clashes are a reality, and that communities suffer LONG-TERM financial harm – and these immigrants are “unskilled,” to boot, so why did we bring them over? Oh, of course, it was for humanitarian reasons. What about the humanity right here in the U.S. working and paying our taxes each and every day – for what, to pay the damage control for Tyson Foods ?

      When the U.S. chooses to be benevolent, there are right ways and wrong ways to go about it. This is the wrong way. These “refugees,” were no doubt starving and living in unspeakable circumstances, but if we’re going to bring the sick and the hungry to America, bring the children. There will be no cultural clashes, they will not hole-up in patriarchial cults, their diseases can be cured or controlled, they will have a chance for honest freedom and will not be invested in changing ours. This may not be viable – probably for certain isn’t, but…

      Back to Emporia:

      Mast said the TB infections in the Somali community Emporia, a city of 28,000 people, the third highest TB rate in Kansas.

      [The Somali community] is dealing with active cases now, she tells Newsmax. This population is extremely difficult to track and it is hard to treat them. You have to make sure they are compliant with the medication and make sure they finish it up.

      Remember Andrew Speaker and his bride, Sarah? They had a fairytale wedding in Greece, honeymoon in Italy. Got a phone call in their bridal suite from the CDC. He was told that the authorities would arrive in “hours,” to place him in quarantine. Well they found Andrew Speaker, from Atlanta, via Greece, in Italy, but they can’t rout-out the tuberculer Somalis in Emporia, KS.

      The truth is, they don’t want to find them – it’s not politically correct to intrude on a the privacy of a Muslim community.

      Officials admit:

      …that latent TB and other infectious diseases are prevalent among Somali and other humanitarian refugees arriving in the U.S.

      She [Mast] said there has been little family reunification among the male workers something that could occur in the future and further exacerbate the problem and stress the community financially and culturally.

      I had to reread that one a couple of times. I can only assume that these male refugees have not yet brought their refugee families to the U.S. – and if and when they do, the problems multiply.

      Peggy Mast, the Gazette says, is an “11 year Republican state representative from Kansas whose district includes Emporia…” We’ll I’m almost speechless:

      [Mast says] There have already been several cultural clashes. This is a disservice to the population you are bringing in and you are inviting a cultural clash, Mast says. The fact there is such a cultural clash and where you have active TB cases, you only have to guess to imagine the fear that spreads through the community.

      Here’s a Conservative warning of the disservice to the “population” brought to the U.S. under the guise of humane refugee status – and they are sick with a communicable disease, they are trouble makers and they have no interest in “communing” with Americans.

      Obviously, Ms. Mast hasn’t lived in a Muslim country, because if she had, she would know all about unfair cultural clashes. Instead, she chides the people of Emporia for adding to the burden of the Somali refugees.

      Here’s a snippet from Peggy Mast’s website:

      I believe that Kansas families deserve leaders who are capable of implementing positive change…leaders who understand the unique character of our communities, the strength of our citizens, and the importance of our children’s future.

      During challenging times, state government needs experienced leadership rooted in conservative values that can make a difference for our communities.

      I pledge to continue to be a voice for the people I represent and not special interest groups. Putting the people of my district first has always been my top priority.

      Mast’s website also says: “If you live in the city of Emporia, Peggy may or may not represent you,…”

      The question is, is the Tyson Food plant in District 76 – Peggy’s District? Is she invested in cheap labor for Tyson? Can there be another reason that she would make such charges against her constituency? As I look through her website I see that she is quite conservative – supporting second amendment rights to “keep and bear arms,” including giving her vote for “conceal and carry” legislation.

      Reading the comment thread in various Kansas newspapers, her constituents seem to think she is doing a good job.

      Mast is calling on the Feds for thorough screenings “on refugees entering the U.S.”

      In addition to health concerns, she said there should be mandatory cultural education to help refugees assimilate.

      Mast says “they [the Somalis] do not understand the culture.”

      It’s not only the Somalis. Americans have learned and are beginning to accept that most Muslims, not all, will never understand our culture, refuse to understand it – it is the culture of infidels:

      [Mast again] Men tend not to show respect for women. They are very demanding and do not respect other peoples space, Mast says. Additionally, she said the limited language skills have caused communication issues beyond simple day-to-day contact.

      For example, Mast says most of the Somalis in Emporia are single males who live in a cluster near Emporia State University. She said several female students complained of being extremely intimidated by the Somali men’s presence.

      Islam knows no respect for women. God bless the women and children because the Muslim men have a plan and it’s not pretty. This is something that our Government cannot legislate.

      We must keep these people out of the United States. As jaded as I am, I still believe in legal immigration from Arab countries for people who have jobs, can support themselves, want to be among Americans and most importantly, understand and co-operate with us as we surveil their every move, if and when necessary.

      Here’s Mast worrying about the “sense of security” for the Somalis again:

      We look down the road and see the problems they can create. Unemployed single males with nothing to do.

      Mast says the inconsistency of some of the authorities does not help create any sense of security.

      She notes that it is cultural for Somalis to marry up to four wives at one time.

      Is this now legal in the U.S. – can they come here and do this, or has a local court conspired with the local back street iman to carry on business as usual – as is done routinely in Britain ?

      My concern is multiple children: Is our society prepared to take responsibility for caring for that size of the family? [Sponsors] say it will be a major resettlement [in Emporia]. The community is not ready for this, Mast says.

      Where in all this dialog from Ms. Mast is the culpability of Tyson Foods?

      About 3/4ths of the way through this post, I found that Tyson “restructured” its Emporia plant. In January 2008 they announced the coming lay-off of 1500-2400 jobs. How many of those were Somalian refugees and where are they now? Where are the 12,000 Somalis that the U.S. agreed to resettle?

      28th Amendment?


      I was directed to this article courtesy of Snooper at A Newt One. He referenced it from The Jawa Report and TJR linked back to LiveLeak.

      I wholeheartedly support this Constitutional Amendment. Here it is in full (I have made minor, grammatical corrections; however the original text is available at the above link for comparison purposes):

      PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AGAINST ISLAM
      A Proposed Constitutional Amendment
      (Note the need for this Amendment at the end)

      Background and Justification to Amendment 28
      (self-defense/survival measure)

      Whereas: Religion is defined as an institution dedicated to improving social conscience and promoting individual and societal spiritual growth in a way that is harmless to others not participating in or practicing the same;

      Whereas: The United States of America was founded on the ideals of individual rights, including the individual right to practice one’s religion of choice or no religion and there would be no compulsion of religion, nor state sanctioned religion, nor a ‘religious test’ for participation in the body politic;

      Whereas: islam includes a complete political and social structure encompassed by its religious law–shari’a–that supercedes any civil law and islam mandates no secular or democratic institutions are to be superior to islamic law;

      Whereas: islam preaches that it and it alone is the true religion and islam will dominate the world while supplanting all other religions and democratic institutions;

      Whereas: Saudi Arabia , the spiritual home of islam does not permit the practice of any other religion on its soil and even ‘moderate’ muslim states such as Turkey and Malaysia actively suppress other religions;

      Whereas: islam includes as its basic tenet the spread of the faith by any and all means necessary, including violent conquest of non-believers and demands of its followers that they implement violent jihad (holy war) against those un-willing to convert or submit to islam, including deception and subversion of existing institutions;

      Whereas: On 9/11/2001, 19 muslim hijackers acting in the name of islam killed 3,000 Americans and numerous other acts of terrorism have been directed at the American people around the world;

      Whereas: Representatives of islam around the world, including Osama Bin Laden (architect of 9/11), the government of Iran including Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, HAMAS, Hezbollah and other islamic groups have declared jihad (war) on America and regularly declare that America should cease to exist;

      Whereas: There is no organized islamic opposition to violent proponents of islam;

      Therefore: islam is not a religion but a political ideology more akin to Fascism and in complete opposition to the ideals of freedom as described in the United States Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights.

      Be it resolved that the following Amendment to the Constitution be adopted:

      Article I

      The social/political/ideological system known around the world as islam is not recognized in the United States as a religion. The practice of islam is therefore not protected under the 1st Amendment as to freedom of religion and speech.

      Article II

      As representatives of islam around the world have declared war and committed acts of war against the United States and its democratic allies around the world, islam is hereby declared an enemy of the United States and its practice within the United States is now prohibited.

      Article III

      Immediately upon passage of this Amendment all mosques, schools and muslim places of worship and religious training are to be closed, converted to other uses, or destroyed. Proceeds from sales of such properties may be distributed to congregations of said places but full disclosure of all proceeds shall be made to an appropriate agency as determined by Congress.

      No compensation is to be offered by Federal or State agencies for losses incurred on such properties; however, Federal funding is to be available for the demolition of said structures if other disposition cannot be made.

      The preaching of islam in mosques, schools and other venues is prohibited. The subject of islam may be taught in a post high school academic environment provided such instruction include discussion of islam’s history of violence, conquest and its ongoing war on democratic and other non-islamic values.

      The preaching or advocating of islamic ideals of world domination, destruction of America and democratic institutions, jihad against Judaism, Christianity and other religions and advocating the implementation of shari’a law shall in all cases be punishable by fines, imprisonment, deportation and death as proscribed by Congress.

      Violent expressions of these and other muslim goals or the material support of those both in the United States and around the world who seek to advance these islamic goals shall be punishable by death. Muslims will be denied the opportunity to emigrate to the United States .

      Article IV

      Nothing in this Amendment shall be construed as authorizing the discrimination against, of violence upon, nor repudiation of the individual rights of those Americans professing to be muslim. The individual right of conscience is sacrosanct and the practice of islam within the privacy of home and self is strictly protected to the extent that such individuals do not violate the prohibitions described in Article III.

      THE REASON THE AMENDMENT IS NEEDED:

      I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz.

      We killed six million Jews and replaced them with 20 million Muslims.

      In Auschwitz we burned a culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people, truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who changed the world.

      The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

      And under the pretense of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance, religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty due to an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

      They have turned our beautiful Spanish cities into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

      Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

      And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for backwardness and superstition.

      We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their talent for hoping for a better future for their children, their determined clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for our children and theirs.

      What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.
