Hillary stresses importance of reaching out to Islamic community
Tuesday, June 14, 2016
It is important to reach out to the Islamic community after any and
every jihad terror attack because, as everyone knows, the first and only
victims of every jihad attack are Muslims.
Clinton here is echoing the
consistent line of every other major politician in the West. “Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton cautioned against blaming all Muslims for Sunday’s massacre.” Who actually does that? This constant admonition that we must not
blame all Muslims for jihad terror attacks is actually an attempt to
foreclose upon honest examination of how Islamic jihadis use the texts
and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism.
mean that every Muslim will be violent and supremacist, because not
every Muslim approaches the texts in the same way. But those texts say
what they say, and unless and until that fact is confronted, they will
continue to incite some believers to violence. “She stressed the importance of reaching out to the Islamic community
and including them as part of the solution to self-radicalization of
American Muslims.” Great. Yet there are some unpleasant facts that should be remembered.
Hamas-linked CAIR has more than once advised Muslims not to cooperate
with law enforcement. In January 2011, its San Francisco chapter featured on its website
a poster that read, “Build A Wall of Resistance / Don’t Talk to the
FBI.” In November 2014, Hamas-linked CAIR-Florida’s “14th Annual Banquet
Rooted in Faith” in Tampa distributed pamphlets
entitled “What to do if the FBI comes for you” and featuring a graphic
of a person holding a finger to his lips in the “shhh” signal. Another
Hamas-linked CAIR pamphlet, entitled “Know Your Rights: Defending
Rights, Defeating Intolerance” featured a graphic
of the Statue of Liberty likewise making the “shhh” symbol.
McGoldrick, a former official of Hamas-linked CAIR’s New York chapter,
even threatened informants, tweeting with brutal succinctness: “Snitches get stitches.” Zahra Billoo of Hamas-linked CAIR-San Francisco regularly tweets that Muslims have no obligation to talk to the FBI, and should contact Hamas-linked CAIR if the FBI asks to talk to them. Hillary Clinton also said: “Hate is not the answer to hate. We’ve got
to stand up against hate. We’ve got to stand up against terrorism.” How is she going to stand up against terrorism when she characterizes
any honest and accurate examination of its motivating ideology as
“hate”? “FBI ‘highly confident’ Orlando killer was radicalized,” by Rick Jervis, Jeff Gallop and John Bacon, USA Today, June 13, 2016 :
