Kitman & taqiyya taken to newÂ heights:
* Â The perps portray themselves as victims: Â “you are the terrorists, why accuse us…?’
* More of the same from the CounterÂ terrorismÂ blog:
In a recent interview with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Islam Online website, and reported by the BBC Middle East Monitoring Service, theÂ Council on American-Islamic Relations‘ (CAIR), Executive DirectorÂ Nihad AwadÂ reflected on “interfaith dialogue,” the Bush administration, the upcoming presidential election, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Asked about the prospect of a new U.S. president, and whether American Muslims regret support for George W. Bush in 2000, Awad’s answer offers a disturbing window into his soul.
“We should not blame the Muslims for taking part in the political process, andÂ we should not blame the United States alone for the 11 September 2001 attacks, but we should also blame the perpetrators.” (Emphasis added)
* Â Yusuf’s been doing that for a long time now:
* “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. Or patriot. Or nationalist”- unfortunately for Yusuf, Islam is not exactly known for bringing Â ‘freedom’, but for terrorizing people with bombs, murder and Â sharia. Fortunately, apart from a few nutroots nobody’s buying any of his crap.
I got the link to the following video throughÂ the Muslim Public Affairs Council. It is a ten-minute, professional propaganda film that would convince anybody who doesn’t know aboutÂ taqiyyaÂ orÂ basic principles of IslamÂ that everybody who writes for the IBA is an Islamophobic bigot.
I thought it was interesting when they showed a clip of a talk-show host asking a Muslim congressman if he was a true patriot. And then they showed a calm, sensible-looking Muslim woman who said, it was clearly a “racist and xenophobic question.”
I thought, “What?” Wasn’t that a question informed by knowledge ofÂ basic Islamic principles? What does that have to do withÂ race? Nothing. What does it have to do with irrational fears of outsiders? Nothing. It has to do with doctrine and beliefs,Â and that is a completely legitimate thing to grill anyone on, especially someone who has some influence on national policy. Here’s the video:
