Muslim Brotherhood doesn't like "Sharia: the Threat to America"

Earlier this week, the Center for Security Policy published a 177-page document entitled "Sharia: the Threat to America":

Not surprisingly, the Muslim Brotherhood didn't like it. The Muslim Brotherhood's Official English Website posted a response at . Tellingly, when I began reading this response I thought I was reading a typical Lib-Left article. It didn't begin with the content of the document or its arguments, but by lambasting the people who wrote it. And when it did quote something, it was in order to condemn the writer of Islamophobia. Also, many of the quotes that seem at first reading as though they are from the document are actually from other sources.

It is remarkable that an Islamist organization which declared war against the rest of the world, and would like to turn all non-Muslims into dhimmis has the gall to condemn people who are critical of them and their schemes as Islamophobes. We, who are not Lib-Leftists oppose Islamism. We oppose the teachings of Sayyid Qutb who wrote the definitive Islamist documentation while a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. What gall to accuse people who oppose Islamism as being Islamophobes.

On the other hand, I wonder whether Leftists will be able to read this Muslim Brotherhood article and disagree with it.

In a recent note Billy Blogblather, invoked a list entitled "USA has bombed the following countries since 1945." The list consists of the following;

China (1945-46 & 1950-53)
Korea (1950-53)
Guatemala (1954 & 1960 and 1967-69)
Indonesia (1958)
Cuba (1959-60)
Congo (1964)
Peru (1965)
Laos (1964-73)
Vietnam (1961-73)
Cambodia (1969-70)
Grenada (1983)
Libya (1986)
El Salvador & Nicaragua (all of the 1980s)
Panama (1989)
Iraq (1991-?)
Sudan (1998)
Afghanistan (1998 and 2001-02)
Yugoslavia (1999)

Billy appends the following: "I thought I counted 28 countries at one time, but I can't think of
them now.  I know there are more than this."

Why produce such a list? And why isn't there a context for each entry? Did Billy care why we were fighting wars at those times? Apparently not. I infer that he is busy once again counting the ways in which he hates his country. I would challenge Billy to put all those dates in context and then list the times he thinks his country was justified in fighting a war. My impression is that he never thinks his country is justified, at least not since World War II. And probably any Socialist would agree with Billy. The reason is that they were rooting for America's enemies during the Cold War. Now that the USSR has failed and fallen, there is only Islamism. What's not to like, they imply by their writings and actions, in a group attacking the U.S. just as we Lib-Leftists did during the Cold War?

I continue to be interested in Terry Jones because he is the Christian Fundamentalist equivalent of Muslim Fundamentalists. Attack the latter and you are an Islamophobe. Attack the former and you receive nods of approval. Islamophobia is bad. Christianophobia is good. Why? Because Lib-Leftists and their media are atheistic and they have been busy opposing Christianity for a long time. Then, why not oppose Islam as well? I have never heard a Lib-Leftist do any soul-searching over this discrepancy. Do any of them see that they are being inconsistent? Do they really think that opposing Islamism is akin to racism while opposing Christianity is something different?

Billy Blogblather asserted that Terry Jones First Amendment Rights were not infringed as a result of his threatened Koran burning. The list of ways in which his rights were infringed is almost as long as Blogblather's list of American bombings. Pressure was applied by the President, Attorney General, Secretary of defense, General Petraeus. The bank decided to cancel Jones loan on his church property. The IRS decided to check Jones tax returns. The city of Gainesville decided to charge Jones for all the trouble he has caused by threatening to exercise his First Amendment Rights: "The cost of policing the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville for the planned Quran burning that never happened is expected to come to about $100,000 each for the Gainesville Police Department and the Alachua County Sheriff's Office, according to officials.

"Gainesville City Manager Russ Blackburn said the city intends to present a bill for the costs to the church's senior pastor, Terry Jones, reports The Gainesville Sun.

"And the Sheriff is also considering billing the church."

Favoring an Islamic Mosque, Islamic teaching, Islamic leaders is far more respectable, it would seem, than a Pastor who is attempting to oppose Sharia compliance (something Rauf has announced he is in favor of) and what can only be described as a "victory Mosque." It is either a Victory Mosque or all the people involved in its advocacy are ignorant of Muslim history and the history of the original Cordoba Mosque.
