In August 2016, Minnesota voters elected Ilhan Omar as the first Somali-American Muslim woman elected to a state legislature. Obama selected at least two Muslim female judges to sit on benches in the court systems between 2015 and 2016, Associate Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam of New York’s highest court and Judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo Brooklyn Civil Court. In 2006 Keith Ellison was sworn in to the US House of Representatives using with both the Bible and Thomas Jefferson’s copy of the Quran.
There have been many instances in the recent past where CAIR has asserted considerable influence in the political arena and by forcing through the ACLU legal compliance into areas of the law in order to protect or advance the Muslim cause from the local to the highest levels of government. They have funded or been in some way instrumental in educational introduction and studies using teaching materials and methods designed to push the Muslim cause, government training and language compliance, political contributions, and assisting organizational start ups that are Muslim related across the US.
Some would venture that this is no different than other religion-backed groups and they might be right; except, those groups have never been implicated or considered to be instrumental in advancing the cause of a religion which is openly and currently under the “guns” of countries of the world for massive destruction, war crimes in numerous countries of massive proportion, and horrendous acts of medieval violence against their own women and children or those who practice a different faith within the areas they are occupying.
Now according to Western Journalism CAIR is again asserting and inserting themselves in another state in the political arena as they are fielding another practicing Islamist, Deedra Abboud, as a candidate for the Arizona Senate in 2018.
The author of the WJ article, Capt. Simpson considers this a dangerous trend. He wrote:
Islam is not a religion in the normal sense and understanding of the term “religion.” Islam is without any debate a theocracy, which is a religion wrapped in a government with its own legal and justice system, both of which are plainly at odds with the U.S. system of law and justice under the Constitution.
Last year, I asked the question, “Is the United States crumbling one state at a time to Islam?”
I would offer the opinion that no politician in America today who is loyal to any alien form of government over our own should be allowed to hold any office as an elected official of the people.
Abboud is a lawyer and community activist in Phoenix who wears a hijab, founded and heads up the Global Institute of Solution Oriented Leadership organization, and was involved in opening the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in 2003,” the AZ Central Arizona news reported.
During her 15-minute announcement event, an upside-down Arizona flag behind Abboud flapped in the wind. A spokesman said it was an error, and not a political statement. Abboud has been registered to vote as an independent, but a campaign spokesman said she re-registered as a Democrat Monday in advance of filing official candidacy papers.
Abboud is the founder of an organization called the Global Institute of Solution Oriented Leadership and the recipient of the Martin Luther King Award in Tempe and Phoenix, according to the short bio that accompanied the news advisory about her Senate candidacy. As a lawyer, she focuses on immigration and estate planning. In 2003, Abboud helped open the first Arizona office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. She was the group’s local executive director at the time.
According to the Sacramento Bee in an article on March 17, 2017, California is also seeing at least one important political position with a Muslim who has declared to run for office.
Asif Mahmood, a Democrat and Muslim doctor from Los Angeles, announced his run for California lieutenant governor outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters downtown Los Angeles. He is from a small village in Pakistan and said he came to America to become a doctor. He said health care, education and fighting Trump are his top three campaign issues. If elected, Mahmood would be the first Muslim to hold statewide office, said Danna Elneil, a representative for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Dennis M. Lynch and other sites are also reporting that a Muslim has declared to run for governor in 2018. Abdul El-Sayed, 32, a Rhodes scholar and Egyptian American doctor, was appointed as executive director of the Detroit Department of Health & Wellness Promotion in 2015. El-Sayed recently resigned from his post to run his gubernatorial campaign in Michigan. If he were to win, El-Sayed could become the first-ever Muslim governor in the United States in 2018.
IF I had not read passages from the Qu’ran and heard imams talking about jihad,
IF I had not read and written about the documents seized and filed in the Holy Land trial,
IF I had not seen how the entire European continent is being destroyed, and
IF I had never seen a single horrific picture or article about how people in the Middle East are being tortured and killed…
I MIGHT almost accept these people.
BUT I HAVE.
Not only that but IF there is nothing wrong, then WHY have so many people been killed around the world in bombings, rampaging trucks, and sword or gun-toting fools yelling out the words “ali akbar” to justify their crimes? Why has the US spent nearly $7 trillion in the last fifteen years to fight over in the Middle East? Why do we have soldiers returning who are missing parts of themselves or others being returned to their families? WHY ARE WE EVEN OVER THERE THEN?
Not only that but IF there is nothing wrong, why have we in this country been subjected to mass murders, terrorist plots, bombings, deaths, and fear because of this ideology? Why are we seeing a massive increase in rapes, international slave trade, related religious “deaths” and disfigurements here?
SO WHY THE F*** are we so accepting and allowing those in a political, legal, marketing and educational jihad free rein in our country? WHY has CAIR and all its tentacles not been declared terrorists and removed? Why are we continuing to see avenues like the political races upcoming beginning to fill with those who are Islamic followers? WHY are we continuing to fund NATO and send our weapons, equipment, and manpower to the Middle East right now?
We can not fight this enemy around the world when we are being overtaken within our own borders. That is a prime example of insanity.
