Muslims meet the anti mosque tea party movement
The ADL is the leading Jewish civil rights group in the U.S. and said in a statement Friday that it was "saddened" and "stunned" by Zakaria's decision to hand back his Award. Personally I was stunned by the Anti-Defamation League's stance! Columnist and TV host Fareed Zakaria has returned a First Amendment award and $10,000 stipend to the Anti-Defamation League in protest of the organization's opposition to a proposed mosque near ground zero.
The proposed mosque in New York has drawn opposition from half Governor Sarah Palin who should not even be a thought and former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich who have called its proposed presence near the site of the deadliest terrorist attack in U.S. history inappropriate. Scary sources!
That said, I was taken aback when Last week, Abraham Foxman, director of the Anti-Defamation League, an organization created to fight religious intolerance, said the city "would be better served if an alternative location could be found. I happen to agree with that but because of extremists and nothing else but I guess the ADL of only against discrimination against Jews not anyone else.
Like it or not this is going to end up being a war against Islam because of the extremists Muslims and on the other side right here the extremist Republicans instigating for war against Islam. Italy, Switzerland, France, the fear of Muslims and their symbol is spreading across Europe but I am sick to see the idiots on the right and not just the tea baggers spreading that fear across America.
In Murfreesboro, Tenn., Republican candidates have denounced plans for a large Muslim center proposed near a subdivision, and hundreds of protesters turned out. In Temecula, Calif., members of a local Tea Party group took dogs and picket signs to Friday prayers at a mosque that is seeking to build a new worship center on a vacant lot nearby. In Sheboygan, Wis., a few Christian ministers led a noisy fight against a Muslim group that sought permission to open a mosque in a former health food store bought by a Muslim doctor. Christian Ministers what the hell?
In all of the recent conflicts, opponents have said their problem is Islam itself. They quote passages from the Koran and argue that even the most Americanized Muslim secretly wants to replace the Constitution with Islamic Sharia law. I hope I am right when I say that is asinine! It’s one thing to oppose a mosque because traffic might increase but it’s different when you say these mosques are going to be nurturing terrorist bombers, that Islam is invading, that civilization is being undermined by Muslims. I think we are smart enough to monitor the situation as we already are.
Knowing that Religion is the Government in Islam there is something to what a woman said when she said Islam is not about a religion. It’s a political government, and it’s 100 percent against our Constitution. That is the countries of Islam to me not not Muslim Americans. I believe largely they are Americans and just want to practice their religion. There are about 1,900 mosques in the United States and I am sure we are watching them all and I hate to say it but we must. Protests Against Mosques Spread Far Beyond Ground Zero
German's, Jews, Japanese, Catholics, Irish, we have all paid our dues here in America's melting pot and Muslim's are just taking there turn. It should be up to the Muslim community how this turns out in America not Republican's, the tea party, or fools that think Sharia law is going to subvert our Constitution.
