Mr. Obama, "Islam had no influence on the origins and development of the United States"

About time somebody sets the record straight:

The Washington Times sets the record straight on Obama’s Ramadan message. “EDITORIAL: Obama’s Islamic America: What country is he talking about?,” from The Washington Times, August 12, thanks to JW:

[…] That Islam has had a major role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings may come as a surprise to Muslim women. Young Afghan girls who are having acid thrown in their faces on the way to school might want to offer their perspectives. That Islam is “known” for diversity and racial equality is also a bit of a reach. This certainly does not refer to religious diversity, which is nonexistent in many Muslim-majority states. This is a plaudit better reserved for a speech at the opening of a synagogue in Mecca.Most puzzling is the president’s claim that “Islam has always been part of America.” Islam had no influence on the origins and development of the United States. It contributed nothing to early American political culture, art, literature, music or any other aspect of the early nation.

In other news:

Hussein Obama will host an iftar — the special evening meal observed during Ramadan — on Friday night in the White House dining room. (May he choke on it along with the criminals that come to dishonor the White House!)

Piracy is part of jihad: The Barbary Wars caused America to build a Navy to protect her merchant ships

Throughout most of American history, the Muslim world was perceived as remote, alien and belligerent. Perhaps the president was thinking about the Barbary Pirates and their role in the founding of the U.S. Navy, or Andrew Jackson’s dispatch of frigates against Muslim pirates in Sumatra in the 1830s. Maybe he was recalling Rutherford B. Hayes’ 1880 statement regarding Morocco on “the necessity, in accordance with the humane and enlightened spirit of the age, of putting an end to the persecutions, which have been so prevalent in that country, of persons of a faith other than the Moslem, and especially of the Hebrew residents of Morocco.” Or Grover Cleveland’s 1896 comment on the continuing massacre of Armenian Christians: “We have been afflicted by continued and not infrequent reports of the wanton destruction of homes and the bloody butchery of men, women and children, made martyrs to their profession of Christian faith. … It so mars the humane and enlightened civilization that belongs to the close of the nineteenth century that it seems hardly possible that the earnest demand of good people throughout the Christian world for its corrective treatment will remain unanswered.”

It also is customary in the United States to search for obscure contributions made by in-vogue minority groups as a feel-good way of promoting inclusion. One of the earliest Muslims to come to the United States was a 17th-century Egyptian named Norsereddin, who settled in the Catskills and was described by one chronicler as “haughty, morose, unprincipled, cruel and dissipated.” Spurned by the princess of an Indian tribe that had befriended him, he managed through a subterfuge to poison her. He was later run down by the betrayed Indians, who burned him alive. It is not the kind of tale that makes it into politically correct history books.

No, but when I read that Norsereddin was “haughty, morose, unprincipled, cruel and dissipated,” I thought they were talking about Honest Ibe Hooper.

  1. The one challenge I openly put out is. Name one enlightened and progressive Muslim country on this planet today?

    Don’t bother even citing Saudi Arabia because we all know that if it weren’t for the West and it’s Petro dollars it would be like Yemen today.

    The SAD fact is the only contribution Islam makes to the U.S. and other Western countries of today is, crime, unemployment, leeching off social welfare and making demands to which they are NOT entitled to.

    The World and especially the U.S. could well do without Islam, it’s plainly not needed.

  2. I don’t think we can keep Muslims in the West forever and a day. Its too much to ask, even to a good Christian. Its just too much. Just consider what we are being asked to do

    1. We have to defend ourselves from terrorism while not offending Muslims. That means Muslims have to be given a free pass on security, otherwise they get offended.

    2. Prevent terrorism by having special schools to educate imams and Muslims that Islam is a religion of peace, and pretend that it is. Herculean task.

    3. Dietary as well as personal hygiene requirements of Muslims is making us look like actors in a Monty Python sketch. Why do we have to make ourselves look like fools.

    4. We have to keep Muslim women safe from being forcibly married here, and or sent back to Muslim nations to get married off. How do we do this, as this is a private matter, but yet again as a civilised society, we have to try to ensure that the weak are protected.

    5. We have to monitor that Muslim women are not being Clitorised. How do we do this for this is an even more personal and private matter? But yet again, as a civilised society, we have to try to ensure that the weak are protected

    6. We have to somehow make sure that a Muslim woman is truly wearing the burqa on her decision, and not being forced, threatened or blackmailed to do so. How do we do this? Same problem of sensitivity, but yet again as a civilised society, we have to try to ensure that the weak are protected

    Frankly, we are being asked to do too much, far too much. Muslims are more trouble then an autistic and violent person. Autism is a good way to look at this, as Muslims, just as persons suffering from Autism, are singularly unaware of others as humans, and have no empathy for others.

    I don’t think we can be responsible for the self-destructiveness of Muslims (and I don’t refer to suicide bombers), and rescue them from their self-inflicted wound of Islam. It is not our job. We have a life as well. Why are we being asked to take care of millions of Muslims in the West , who are doctrinally required to murder or enslave us. Why? What’s in it for us?

    Let Muslims live in their countries, and we in our culture. That way there is peace, and both of us can live in mutual self-respect. The way we are going, I see a civil war. In the UK, I believe we are teetering on the brink – just one bomb away from civil war.

  3. “(May he choke on it along with the criminals that come to dishonor the White House!)”

    I second the motion, Sheik! I would be tempted to wish more than choking but it might bring a visit from Obuzzard’s Muslim comrades in the Secret service.

    One contribution you did leave out from our “friends” – they’re pretty “generous” with their lawsuits forcing their radicalism and forced accomodations. CAIR’s imams’ suit against U.S. Air and its “tattling” kuffar passengers is one such example. As you well know, there are many more.

  4. Current BBC headline

    Obama defends right to build mosque near 9/11 site

    If anyone foolishly had any lingering doubts about Obama’s Muslim religion, loyalty and affiliation and his utter contempt for America and Americans then they surely must be totally dispelled now. If however you do not think that this is the case then that tells us a lot about YOU.

  5. THIS is what Obama is giving his wholehearted support to both to his Muslim brothers and their disgusting deliberate INSULT to America.
    Historically Muslims raise TRIUMPHALIST Mosques where they have been militarily successful of which there are many examples but prominently the Hagia Sophia Mosque in Istanbul (Constantinople) which desecrated and appropriated the largest Domed Church in Christendom and the copying which has given Islam its Domed Mosques and the Al Aqsa Mosque that the Muslim ARAB invaders built right on top of and desecrating the Holiest Jewish site in Jerusalem the thousands of years old Temple Mount.
    Now they want to desecrate the memory of the 9/11 victims by building a Mosque within sight of Ground Zero a Mosque which will celebrate the very ISLAM that nurtured, supported, taught, justified and inspired the Muslim Terrorist SCUM who perpetrated the obscene outrage. To add INSULT to injury and to further rub salt in the wound they want to call it ‘Cordoba” for half educated left wing moonbats Cordoba was the Capital of Muslim CONQUERED and OCCUPIED Spain.

  6. I have to disagree somewhat. Islam was responsible for the America.

    The rapid expansion of the Muslim domain by fire and sword, had shut access of Europe to the East. Europe was thus left no option but to travel Westwards to gain access to India and China, and discovered America as a byproduct.

    1. That, in a nutshell, could be a claim.

      After the conquest of Constantinople, the Christians had to find a new seaway to India. This coincided with the expulsion of the moors from Spain and queen Isabella financing Christopher Columbus on his expedition on which he discovered America.

      500 years in a flash…..
