The theft of one of your freedoms (following a long precedence) starts with something seemingly innocent, but which actually inserts a deadly virus-like corruptor into the law-making mechanism. It begins with a resolution and, eventually, becomes like England, with people jailed for any accusation of something "offensive" to some religions' members. Finally, it ends with state control of all speech and expression--you may say only what the state wants you to say.
Let's look at some of the details for this so-called resolution:
House Resolution Urges Respect for Koran; Condemns Religious Intolerance -- 05/19/2005: By Susan Jones, CNSNews.com Morning Editor, May 19, 2005
(CNSNews.com) - An Islamic civil rights group is urging all "people of conscience" to support a Democrat-sponsored resolution recognizing that the Koran, like the holy book of any other religion, "should be treated with dignity and respect."
The resolution, to be introduced by Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), also "condemns bigotry and intolerance against any religious group, including our friends, neighbors and citizens of the Islamic faith."
The Council on American-Islamic Relations called the introduction of the resolution a winning move.Rep. Conyers, who appeared at Tuesday press conference when CAIR announced the Koran giveaway, applauded the effort.Congressional resolutions express the opinion of lawmakers and do not have the force of law.
CAIR is urging its supporters to contact their congressional representatives: "Tell them the allegations of Koran desecration, now withdrawn by Newsweek, hurt America's image overseas. Strong support for this resolution will demonstrate America's intolerance of bigotry and disrespect toward any religious group," the press release said.
The first clue that something is rotten here comes from CAIR's (Council for American-Islamic Relations) mobilizing its Muslim puppets to action. While it might not be 100% of the time true, it seems to be almost axiomatic that, if CAIR likes it, it can't be good.
The second clue that something might be rotten comes from the sycophancy of Rep. Conyers. This man represents Detroit, particularly its large Muslim ghetto. Worse than simply being influenced by this enclave, he himself is so far to the Left that he fully qualifies as a House of Representatives fifth columnist socialist. You can just about make book on the principle, if John Conyers likes it, it has to be bad for America. CAIR + Conyers makes a typical "Unholy Alliance."
Here is some of what CAIR sent to its puppets yesterday by email (repetitious material removed):
SUPPORT CONYERS HOUSE RES. CONDEMNING RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY - TOP
(Washington, DC, 5/18/2005) - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called for people of conscience to support a resolution that "recognizes that the Qur'an as any other holy book of any religion, should be treated with dignity and respect."
To be introduced by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), the resolution also "condemns bigotry and intolerance against any religious group, including our friends, neighbors and citizens of the Islamic faith."
"This resolution expresses America's respect for the holy texts of all faiths. If passed, it will also reiterate our nation's condemnation of bigoted behavior and religious intolerance," said Corey Saylor, CAIR's government affairs director. "It's a winner on every front."
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED:
Contact your Representative in the U.S. House (not your Senators) and ask him or her to sign-on to the Conyers resolution condemning bigotry and religious intolerance. (No number has been assigned to the resolution at the time of this release.)
1) Tell them the allegations of Quran desecration, now withdrawn by Newsweek, hurt America's image overseas. Strong support for this resolution will demonstrate America's intolerance of bigotry and disrespect toward any religious group.
2) Ask them to contact Ameer Gopalani in Rep. John Conyers' office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-223-9307 to sign-on.
3.) SEND A MESSAGE TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVE:
What appears so "innocent" to some, so "benign" to the undiscerning, and so "American," believe it or not, is covert jihad in action. This jihad makes small, non-violent steps, designed to change the electorate and the laws, a piece at a time, until Islam prevails. It is truly the nose of the camel in the tent, a particularly apt metaphor here.
The principle of religious tolerance cannot apply to Islam as long as its central aim is jihad, by any and all means. The aspiration to world conquest and enslavement cannot be permitted or tolerated, no matter that it is like Nazism disguised as a religion. Islam is absolutely dead set to destroy the Consitution of the United States and replace it with shari'a. I did not make that up; that is what Muslims themselves, including CAIR, say, off the record (on record, Muslims glibly lie to your face). And, CAIR has the finest legislator money can buy in its backpocket to assist it.
Another metaphor for this resolution is "trojan horse." If this resolution passes, it has no force of law, but it softens up the politically correct and the real fifth columnists in the Congress for the next step, and we have already stated what the goal is.
Is mine the voice of paranoia? Yes, if you believe that Islam is a religion of peace, one of the great religions, that it teaches love and brotherhood, and that it has no history of any kind which could belie its benign-ness. Yes, if you believe that the Koran is holy and teaches love and brotherhood for all mankind, including non-Muslims. Yes, if you have refused to read a Koran or two, Ishaq's Sira al Rasul, any Ahadith, and the loads of utterly outstanding presentations about Islam. Yes, if you either follow no current events in newspapers, broadcast media, and the internet--or if you refuse to believe the evidence of your senses. Yes, if you believe even that there might be an "Allah," that Muhammad received the Koran by divine revelation, and Muhammad was not what he was.
It is worth the time and effort to let your representatives know the truth about this resolution and some of the truth about Islam. They still might be too chicken to face up to it, but they will know you are there, that you know what's what, and that you won't forget them and how they voted.
