Of course, now that elections are over, there is even less to fear by bashing Islam and Muslims. Republican State Rep Jay Rodne represents the Snoqualmie 5th district…those who are not Muslims of course! He does not even regard us Muslims as being Americans in fact, he wants “America” (the non-Muslims of course) to solve the Muslim problem by getting guns.
Right-wing groups are always looking for a threat that spreads fear and thus, causes the masses to unite behind a savior party…themselves. Throughout history, this has worked well for the right-wing, they look for a minority that has little or no political clout and then rush in for the kill…literally. Germany and Serbia come to mind immediately.
It is no different for the American right-wing today; the Republican Party, who have found their minority of choice; Muslims.
When Republican Presidential contender Ben Carson made his statements against Muslims and Islam, he was only serving as the voice of the Republican Party, which has nailed its colors on the mast of anti-Muslim hate and fear. He is not alone, there is not s single Republican party contender who does not support a platform that is hostile to Islam and Muslims.
Personally, I don’t care if he is against a possible Muslim president, plenty of people are against having a president who is form one group or another; Muslim, Jews, Atheist, Gay. Black, Hispanic…you name the group and someone will not want them to participate in the leadership of this country. It’s okay, it is their right to stand as they will.
Ben Carson and other Republican (and a number of Democrat) leaders however, are obliged to at least state their reasons for being against a group, accurately instead of fanning the flames of ignorance and bigotry. Let’s take a look at what he stands against. Continue reading
This is why the Tea-GOP is regarded as being committed against Islam and Muslims…IN SPITE of the many individual Republican Party members who are against bigotry, but whose lack of voice only spurs the GOP deeper in anti-Muslim fear-mongering (thanks to a friend for this information): Continue reading

There is so much mythology and fantasy around the so-called “Sharia Law” that a large number of states have now been involved in either passing laws against “Sharia Law” (under various euphemisms) or, have been involved in voting for the “ban” or, are currently discussing methods to ban “Sharia Law”( Map below is as of March 2012).
Going into details of Sharia and its application would require a separate, detailed article however, it is worth point out a few basic facts about Sharia and the hysteria being generated against it in the West, led by the US.
Sharia is a composite Continue reading
This election cycle, Muslims in Puget Sound are going through Phase One of self-assertion. We are requiring any politician who ants our ballot support, to pledge s-he will guarantee equal protection under the constitution for ALL, including Arabs and Muslims.
This should not be such a difficult issue for any politician since, their oath of office includes swearing to uphold the constitution of the United States and THAT guarantees equal protection for all. It is a sad comment that most politicians are afraid to use the “A”-word (Arab) and the “M”-word (Muslim) Continue reading
“Another innocent person killed by a Crazy”…at least, that is what most uninvolved people will think as they move on to their daily chores and pursuits.
Muslims in America on the other hand, will see the brutal killing of this Iraqi Muslim woman in California, as one more piece of convincing evidence that America IS gearing up to a genocidal state of mind, towards Muslims.
No, thankfully, not ALL Americans are filled with hate and fear towards Muslims, but it does not take ALL members of any group, to ignite the fires of hate-driven violence, it only takes a small, loud percentage, abetted by the silence of the large majority who don’t want to upset the routines of their lives, by getting involved.
No, not ALL Republicans are such monsters, not ALL Tea-Party members are filled with this hate towards Islam and Muslims and not ALL Democrats support such hate. But certainly ALL Republicans, ALL Tea Partiers and ALL Democrats, are guilty of at least being default supporters because of their silence.
And ALL Americans are involved in this hate-machine because Continue reading
