The most notorious hijacking of all, of course, may not be the ones Muhammad Atta and Co. pulled off on 9/11, but the hijacking of Islam itself, the Religion of Peace, that the mainstream media, Left and Right, takes for granted as having happened.And here, in his recent message to the people of Pakistan, Osama bin Laden is at it again, offering copious Qur’an quotes — as if challenging peaceful Muslims to demonstrate that he is misusing the Islamic book. Why don’t they take up the challenge? This is the way Osama and his counterparts make recruits among Muslims. This is what peaceful Muslims need to counter. But instead, they call people who point out that the jihadists who do this are “Islamophobes,” and that is that.

Tancredo refuses to vote for House resolution marking commencement of Ramadan
* This should be a matter of course. There is no place for a 7th century blood cult this day and age, anywhere. Anyone who has his wits together should ignore this nonsense.
* The wankers who voted in support of this are clearly in violation of the first amendment:Â
The First Amendment refers to the first of several pronouncements in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, stating that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion….” Together with the Free Exercise Clause, (“…or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”), these two clauses make up what are commonly known as the “religion clauses” of the First Amendment.Â
Congressmen should respect the constitution.
Trouble is they don’t:
He voted “present,” as did 41 other congressmen. All but one were Republicans.
The resolution, “in order to demonstrate solidarity with and support for members of the community of Islam in the United States and throughout the world, the House of Representatives recognizes the Islamic faith as one of the great religions of the world.” It also “acknowledges the onset of Ramadan and expresses its deepest respect to Muslims in the United States and throughout the world on this significant occasion.”…
* Boy, that hurts…
Shortly after the vote, however, Tancredo issued a press release in which he argued that the resolution shows how political correctness is ruining public discourse.
“This resolution is an example of the degree to which political correctness has captured the political and media elite in this country. I am not opposed to commending any religion for their faith. The problem is that any attempt to do so for Jews or Christians is immediately condemned as ‘breaching’ the non-existent line between Church and State by the same elite,” Tancredo says in his statement.
Here’s a resolution passed on December 15, 2005, expressing the House’s support for the “symbols and traditions” of Christmas â€” and only Christmas â€” to repel the left’s alleged secret plot to replace all references to the season with “Happy Holidays.” The measure passed, 401-22. Among those voting yes was Sir Tancelot.
