September 28, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – A week ago GOP Presidential Candidate Dr. Ben Carson stated his opposition to the idea of a Muslim president, responding to a question posed by Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet the Press:
“Do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?
No, I do not…I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation…”
This exchange of course enraged the leftist/multicultural elite which though claiming to be xenophilic, continues to hide in nearly all-white, gated communities where the only “people of color” are those who have just returned from three-week vacations on the beaches of Cannes.
While the Carson story continues to play out so too does the fable surrounding a Muslim high school student, Ahmed Mohamed, who caused more than a bit of commotion in Irving, Texas [a hotbed of Islamist activity ] by bringing a suspicious looking “clock” encased in a briefcase secured by a cable to school, alleging - apparently without basis - that it was a required science project.
Mohamed’s teacher became alarmed after the device started beeping during class. Her sense of concern red-lined when, upon opening Mohamed’s briefcase, she saw what appeared to be the electronics of a home-made bomb, an IED.
Law enforcement was called; Mohamed was taken in for questioning and subsequently released. All of this took place amidst the Hallelujah Chorus alleging that the student’s brief apprehension was due to racism, Islamophobia and the evil nature of the West rather than as the direct result of the highly suspicious bomb-like-thing which he brought to class.
It didn’t take long…in rapid order, Mohamed was absolutely lionized by the crème de la crème of the American left, including President Obama who extended an invitation to the WH.
Let that register with you…
A kid can be arrested for even drawing a gun in school, but it seems that actually bringing what looks like a mass casualty weapon into class gets you an invite to the Oval Office?
Not to be topped, the jack boots who run the GooglePlex, invited Mohammed to a science fair as a VIP guest of honor. While we are on the topic of Google, a brief search on the topic of Ahmed Mohamed’s “Excellent Day at School,” produces nothing but the most sycophantic, anti-logic coverage of the event. One has to do a fair amount of work to produce search results which don't use the issue to excoriate the West.
Perish the thought that the Obama worshipers at Google would design the company’s algorithms to put a very hard left slant on search engine result?
As both of these stories percolate through the news cycle, the Muslim invasion of Europe continues [see, Hungarian Bishop Defies Francis, “It’s A Muslim Invasion ,” and Muslim Invasion Of Europe And America: An Act Of War ] unabated. Tens-of-thousands of military aged Muslim men are forcing themselves into the EU countries, where there is so much outrage being generated among the [rioting] native populace that the existence of the Union itself appears to be threatened…carried on the back of its suicidal policy to erase Europe’s borders, codified through the 1985 Schengen Agreement.
Over the last two decades - a good marker being August1996 when bin-Laden issued his first fatwa declaring war against the United States - Americans have had more than sufficient opportunity to observe how the Ummah comports itself, and the picture is bleak.
Aside from the non-stop [and increasing] brutality of ISIS, HAMAS, Boko Haram, Hezbollah etc., and hundreds of similarly aligned Islamic terrorist organizations, the unprecedented spectacle of a strident jihadist migrant army from the Middle East attempting to overwhelm Europe, the Ahmed “Clockboy” phenomenon must now be factored into the American Gestalt regarding Islam.
The portrait being developed is all encompassing; it proceeds from globalized religious warfare, on a grand scale within the Third World, to the more focused human wave jihadist attack now underway across Europe to what appears to be a very carefully planned “civilization jihad” by a Muslim American youth whose news conference was orchestrated by the Council on American Islamic Relations, CAIR, a group which the federal government has said is associated with HAMAS.
“The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas….”
It’s easy to understand how the electorate views all of this as proof positive of what the late Harvard historian Samuel Huntington called, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order.
The question really resolves down to the idea of secularity.
To Westerners, freedom and liberty are treasured in their own right while fundamentalist Islam holds that liberty really means being “free” of all impediments, such as pesky representative governments, so that one may “accept” Islam...or else.
Islam 101: Observant - literalist - Muslims are guided by the Shari’a [derived from the Qur'an and Hadit, the "way of the Prophet"] Islam’s sacralized legal corpus, which elevates mosque over state. Inherent in the Shari’a is the principle that “God’s religion” be made supreme and therefore Muslims are legally compelled by its religious codes to work towards establishing dominion of the faith over all other cultures and belief systems - da’wa - proselytization - being the de-facto 6th “Pillar of Islam”]
Strictly speaking, the term “secular” Muslim is oxymoronic in the extreme because the Shari’a dictates that all things must fall under the purview of Allah. So profound are the dictates of Islamic law that in Al-Masri’s “Reliance of the Traveller” [one of the most respected compendiums of the Shari’a within Islamic jurisprudence] Muslim men are, for example, even instructed on how to properly urinate - please refer to pg. 76-77…”when finished urinating, for men to squeeze the penis with the left hand from base to head…”
Question, but doesn’t refusing to vote for a Muslim presidential candidate run afoul of Article VI of the U.S. Constitution which prohibits a governmentally imposed religious test on candidates for office?
Only to the mindless subset of the population that actually believes the tripe which the New York Times publishes daily.
In fact, the proposition made by Dr. Carson is a personal one, a matter of informed judgment [supported by real-world observation, in this case of a highly intelligent individual] and therefore is not in conflict with Article VI, unless one ascribes to the institutional trend towards prosecuting “thought crime.”
Potential subsumation of the U.S. Constitution by the Shari’a is of course a consideration in thinking about the effect of a Muslim chief executive, but it goes farther than that. It extends to questions such as how would this stripe of CIC make policy decisions such as how many of the his co-religionist “refugees” would be allowed to enter into the U.S.
Note: Despite continued assurances by the Department of State that “refugees” are fully vetted to prevent an inflow of terrorists, that is an impossible proposition. It’s worth noting that State has no vetting program…none. If one doubts this assertion we suggest one evaluate the “vetting” process which underwrites Sate’s forced resettlement, in primarily white middle-class communities [absent consent] of Islamists from Africa. Add to this the fact that, apparently beyond the comprehension of Obama’s minions, terrorists lie by definition.
Even if there was a rudimentary screening procedure [we assure you there is none, having hounded the State Department for this information for over 10 years, to no avail] does it seem reasonable that those with a terrorist mindset would reveal themselves during an interview?
As Michael Savage famously opined a decade ago the refrain of this new breed of surly new-comers is well established…”Me immigrant, you racist, call ACLU.”
But we really don’t have to speculate that much regarding what kind of impact an Islamic presidency would bring to American politics and governance…we effectively have a one as president now…how’s that going?
Constant groveling apologies in repentance for America’s litany of alleged sins committed against the Ummah; members of the Muslim Brotherhood being made trusted national security advisors; refusal to engage, or for that matter even name the enemy; a pro-Muslim legal immigration/visa policy while actively refusing entrée to genuinely aggrieved Christians despite their being fed, on an hourly basis, into a meat grinder every bit as nasty as were Diocletian’s lions.
The takeaway here being that in the matter of opposing the idea of a Muslim president, the great majority of the American electorate is in full agreement with Mr. Carson, since the dangers associated with potential jihadism by the most powerful man on earth are obvious.
