Why Aren't the U.S. Presidential Candidates Talking About Islam?
By Nicholas Contompasis
Will it be said some day, that it all started in the early Twenty-first Century, America's turn towards Islam?
Based on our current crop of Presidential candidates it seems it has started.
Why, because they're not talking about the ten ton gorilla in the middle of the room, Islam!!!
In our defense, we're at war with Islam around world and now at home, yet not one candidate has attempted to talk about what he or she would do to stop this cancer on our society. They won't even bring it up, as if it was a third rail. Why, I keep asking myself, are they courting the Muslim vote? It seems so!
As these candidates stumble around attempting to hit the right nerve of the American voter they might want to attack the numerous Islamic organizations that back our current President and have designs of converting every American to the Muslim faith.
By attacking them, they would be attacking the President, who has now left a feeling in most American's minds that he is sympathetic to the people killing us around the world.
Romney and Perry Lagging Behind on Commitment to Prosecution of US Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups?
Andrew G. Bostom
Kudos to the dogged and intrepid J. Mark Campbell of The United West, who has obtained video recorded commitments from Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Herman Cain to pursue and prosecute the major Muslim Brotherhood front groups currently operating unencumbered in the US, and being courted for "Muslim outreach" by feckless politicians, policymakers, and even law enforcement officials.
The Holy Land Foundation trial made unmistakably clear the agenda of this spiders web of Muslim Brotherhood organizations -- which includes unindicted co-conspirators CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations), ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), and NAIT (North American Islamic Trust) -- as stated explicitly by Yusuf al-Qaradawi acolyte Mohamed Akram, in his "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America", May 22, 1991 (translated here, on "Page 7 of 18," bottom center pagination):
The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that 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 by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.
Both "front runners" Mitt Romney and Rick Perry need to provide the same unequivocal commitments, immediately, to this critically important national security goal in the struggle against jihadism.
