The Islamintern Is Coming to (Chi-) Town
Andrew G. Bostom
Propaganda is carried on from Riyadh on a scale comparable to Moscow’s effort to spread Communism
Both the former, Sada Cumber, and current envoy, Rashad Hussain, will be in attendance at the Chicago OIC program — one must seriously consider the extent of OIC propaganda efforts aimed at the Islamization of our country. Perhaps in Chicago some intrepid (and informed) mainstream media reporter — underscoring how the OIC’s agenda is diametrically opposed to the US Constitution — will ask the representatives of this avatar of mainstream Islam about its blatant rejection of freedom of conscience, and openly espoused efforts to impose Universal Islamic Blasphemy Law.
The fox is in the hen-house. Here we see, up close, just how deeply the US government has been infiltrated by the stealth jihadists. The panel discussions give us a true picture of their agenda — The Role of the OIC & The scope for its relations with American Muslims, American Foreign Policy & The Muslim World, and Islam in the American Context.

Attending from the White House isÂ Â Rashad Hussein, Special Envoy of the White House to theÂ OrganizationÂ of the Islamic Conference (OIC). After naming him, Barack Hussein Obama boasted that Rashad Hussein was a hafiz who had committed the Koran to memory. Further, Rashad Hussein, special White HouseÂ official, has a history of participation in events connected with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, as well as support for Brotherhood causes, once having called prosecution of the U.S. leader of a PalestinianÂ terroristÂ organizationÂ one of many “politically motivated persecutions.” MoreÂ background on Rashad here.
Also attending from the White House is Dalia Mogahed, Executive Director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, and Adviser, White House Office of Faith-Based and NeighborhoodÂ Partnerships. Obama’s first veiled appointee, Egyptian born Dalia Mogahed, conducted her firstÂ interviewÂ withnotorious Jew-hater and America-hater Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi’s extremist Islamic website, Islam Online.
In April 2009, Mogahed said in anÂ interviewÂ withÂ terrorist- and jihad-supporting Qaradawi’s website,Â “Many have claimed thatÂ terroristsÂ have ‘hijacked Islam’. I disagree. I think Islam is safe and thriving in the lives of Muslims around the world. What theÂ terroristsÂ have been allowed to take over are Muslim grievances.” I posted theÂ whole thing here.

Obama endorses privileged status for Islam
Buying books and then burning them is a legal act in the United States.
Second,Â David H. Petraeus,Â Robert M. Gates,Â Eric H. Holder Jr.,Â Hillary Rodham ClintonandÂ Barack Obama pressuredÂ Mr. Jones to cancel only because they feared Muslim violence against Americans if he proceeded.
Indeed, despite Mr. Jones‘ calling off the Koran burning, five Afghans and three Kashmiris died in protests against his plans.
That violence stems from Islamic law, Shariah, which insists that Islam, and the Koran in particular, enjoy a privileged status. Islam ferociously punishes anyone, Muslim or non-Muslim, who trespasses against Islam’s sanctity. Codes in Muslim-majority states generally reflect this privilege; for example,Â Pakistan‘s blasphemy law, 295-C, punishes derogatory remarks about Muhammad with execution.
No less important, Shariah denigrates the sanctities of other religions, a tradition manifested in recent years by the destruction of the Buddhist Bamiyan statues and the desecration of the Jewish Tomb of Joseph and theÂ Christian Church of the Nativity. A 2003 decree ruled the Bible suitable for use by Muslims when cleaning after defecation. Iranian authorities reportedly burned hundreds of Bibles in May. This imbalance, whereby Islam enjoys immunity and other religions are disparaged, has long prevailed in Muslim-majority countries. Â (Read More)
