The eye-opening commentary below illustrates why a government focus on terrorism to the exclusion of “Cultural Jihad” is foolish and dangerous.
It illustrates why the purveyors of political correctness, who go to great lengths to tolerate Islamic intolerance, are helping to plant the seeds of our own destruction. Lastly, it illustrates why it is so important that concerned, informed citizens in democratic societies like ours rise up in a unified, organized voice within the civic and political process – before we lose the right to express that voice.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Voting
by Douglas Farah
Because in political Islam there is no difference between the state and religion, voting itself becomes, as one British Imam is quoted in the document as saying, a form of Jihad

Harvard Law School professor Noah Feldman touched off a fierce debate when he recently wrote in The New York Times Magazine that Islamic Sharia law represents the highest state of “the rule of law.” But what many of Feldman’s critics did not recognize is that his argument has been building over several years.
Just as an old photographic print slowly becomes visible when immersed in developing solution, Noah’s claims about the alleged virtues of Sharia first surfaced in his 2005 book, Divided by God written when he was still a professor at NYU. Three years later, Feldman, who helped draft the Iraqi constitution, has turned his argument into a new book, called The Fall and Rise of the Islamic State. The book marks Feldman’s emergence as a leading academic advocate for Sharia law.

From Act For America today
For years, Great Britain and other countries of Western Europe have bent over backwards to accommodate the growing Muslim population within their borders. It has been nearly an “article of faith” that multicultural tolerance of Muslims, even militant Muslims, would promote peace and inter-faith dialogue, and diminish the possibility of terrorist attacks.
That “article of faith” is proving to be an illusion.
Over a year ago, Britain’s Daily Mail ran an article entitled “Multiculturalism drives young Muslims to shun British values.” The article noted that a study had found that “Multiculturalism has alienated an entire generation of young Muslims and made them increasingly radical…In stark contrast with their parents, growing numbers sympathize with extreme teachings of Islam, with almost four in ten wanting to live under Sharia law in Britain…13% said they `admired’ organizations such as al Qaida…”
Then last December, Germany’s Der Spiegel ran an article about Muslims in Germany entitled “Interior Ministry warns of radicalization of Muslims.”
Any student of history and the doctrines of Islam understands why this is the case. What we in the West regard as a high virtue (tolerance and accommodation) Islam regards as weakness and an implicit if not explicit acknowledgement that Islam is superior and we are inferior. The harder the West tries to accommodate Islam, the more it is seen by Muslims as weak and inferior.
This is why, in spite of everything Great Britain has done to accommodate Islam, to the point of the Archbishop of Canterbury stating that the imposition of shariah law in Britain is “unavoidable,” Islamic militancy in Britain grows and the threat of terror increases. (See the Reuters story below).
Contrary to the hopes and best intentions of those seeking to accommodate Islam, the reality is proving an axiom the West in general and America in particular must come to acknowledge: The tolerance of Islamic intolerance will simply promote more Islamic intolerance.

The story below first appeared last September, and refers to one of the closest 2006 U.S. Senate elections in the country.

Seeking to flip a Republican Senate seat, the Muslim American Society used Boy and Girl Scout troops last year as part of a massive get-out-the-vote campaign targeting Muslim voters in Virginia and elsewhere.
National leaders at the Boy and Girl Scouts of America say they've never heard of using Scout troops in such political activity and it violates Scout policy. They promised to look into the MAS program.
MAS Executive Director Mahdi Bray isn't keeping the fact that he tapped Scouts to run phone banks a secret. In fact, he's bragging about it. And while he claims the calls were non-partisan, he also is comfortable saying "Democrats would be a better choice" for his constituency.
In Virginia, incumbent George Allen was struggling to hold onto his Senate seat against former Navy Secretary Jim Webb. "We delivered 80 percent of the eligible voting Muslims to the polls," Bray said in July at an Islamic Circle of North America-Muslim American Society convention in Hartford, Conn. "48,000 Muslims voted in Virginia. 93 percent of them voted for Webb, seven percent voted for Allen. Webb won by a slim margin of 9,000 votes. Now I don't care how you slice it, dice it and I don't care whether you are a mathematician or not, you can figure this out, that if 48,000 Muslims voted and 90 percent of them voted for the successful candidate, then certainly, and he only won by a 9,000 vote margin – we made a difference."

This just in from Act For America's Guy Rodgers, the Executive Director. Jihad Comes to Wall Street! Sharia-Compliant Financing
- Any financial institution that agrees to participate in such financing is facing the prospect of having to divert 2.5% to as much as 6% of its profits to Muslim charities. So what’s wrong with such “philanthropy?”
Over the past several years, three major Muslim charities in America have been shut down after investigations revealed they were funneling charitable contributions to terrorist organizations. How many more around the world are doing the same thing?
In other words, with sharia-compliant financing we might as well be taking a portion of our interest, dividends, and capital gains, and handing that money directly to terrorists.
Click on the title to visit a website advertising a sharia-compliant conference. Take special note of the sponsors, which include the Dow Jones and Standard and Poor’s.
Vladimir Lenin once noted that “the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.” Sharia-compliant financing goes one better than that – we simply give them the money to hang us.
How to stop it? Education is necessary – but not sufficient. It will take substantial, organized, grassroots pressure. A few years ago, Bank of America let it be known it was going to actively market its products to illegal immigrants, which the bank saw as an untapped market. A fierce grassroots outcry followed, and to its credit Bank of America listened and scrapped its plan.
As the ACT! for America membership and chapter network grows, we will be able to exert the level of informed, organized opposition to sharia-compliant financing that will send a clear message to financial institutions looking to cash in on the oil wealth of the Middle East: Not with our investment dollars.
This is one reason why you hear us say frequently that rolling back the tide of Islamofascism is going to take organized, informed action by a large grassroots citizen action network. Imagine a boycott by 1,000,000 ACT! for America members of a major American bank that has immersed itself in sharia-compliant financing. They’ll get the message. For as the saying goes, “if they won’t see the light, they need to feel the heat.”

Does anyone out there have a clue
why the college kids - who are mostly far left protesters - back and protest for Islamo-Fascism? I guess it's the same reason they backed and protested for Vietnam. Little do they know (they aren't old enough) that today's terrorists are even more deadly than the enemies of old.
This week marks our second Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week with events planned on over 105 college campuses across the country. Islamo Fascism Awareness Week is an effort to bring the truth into the suffocating ideological bias of our universities. It comes as no surprise that the radical left is organizing to stop our speakers. This is what happened last fall when they shut down my speech at Emory, threatened former Muslim Nonie Darwish at Berkeley, and disrupted several of our speakers.
They want to kill this event because they knew know that awareness about Islamo Fascism means the end of their political monopoly on campus and the beginning of a student movement that honors and supports our country. Because of this threat, we are once again forced to pay for extra security to ensure our speakers' safety. So, what happened to freedom of speech on campus? Oh, that's right, it's only for lefties.
Pretty sad and very normal, isn't it?
The following is important info about militant Islam and how they operate. Please pass it on.
With respect to the advance of militant Islam, we are often asked “what can be done?” The first thing we in the West must do is to make a decision that “tolerance” does not mean we are obligated to be tolerant of Islamist intolerance. As Lee Harris notes in The Suicide of Reason, if we continue to be tolerant of such intolerance we are on a slow path to cultural suicide. We must decide to stand up and resist the militant intolerance of Islamofascism – through educating others and, more importantly, through organized grassroots civic and political action. Western Europe and Great Britain are learning the hard way what the tolerance of Islamist intolerance leads to.
Militant Muslims regularly, repeatedly, and falsely, attempt to portray themselves as the victims and “infidels” as the aggressors. We are not the aggressors; militant Muslims are the aggressors. We in the West are castigated as bigoted, narrow-minded, intolerant and Islamophobic. But it is the militant Muslims who are bigoted and intolerant. Only in an Alice in Wonderland world could people who call Jews apes and pigs be viewed as the tolerant ones in our midst.
The article below provides just one more chilling example of how “peaceful” and “tolerant” militant Muslims are. Towards the end of the article you can read how these “tolerant” Muslims used intimidation to shut down a blog written by a Muslim who had left the faith. Small wonder so few moderate Muslims speak out against this militancy. You will also read how the Muslim student newspaper extolled terrorist attacks against civilians. All in the name of tolerance, of course.
Last September at the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas, a Muslim Brotherhood strategy memorandum detailing plans for subverting the United States from within was entered into evidence. The essay below provides background and insight into this plan to “destroy Western Civilization from within.”
The following essay, adapted from the Introduction to this booklet, shows how, as early as the 1980s, operatives from the Muslim Brotherhood, parent group for al Qaeda and Hamas, formulated a blueprint for a "jihadist process" that would ultimately sabotage the "miserable house" of the United States. These Muslim Brotherhood operatives saw that the work of undermining the U.S. could be best accomplished by the use of front groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Students Association. But while CAIR was designed to work in the legal-cultural realm, posturing as another of the minority rights groups functioning in the public square, the MSA's role was to be restricted to college campuses, where it would advance the cause of radical Islam and lead the effort to stigmatize Israel.
Over the next several days, Front Page will publish profiles of individual chapters of the MSA on a variety of campuses around the country, showing how specifically they achieve the broad goals of the organization. – The Editors
As revealed in documents seized by the FBI and entered as evidence in a Texas court, the Muslim Students Association is a legacy project of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is an organization formed by a Hitler-admiring Muslim named Hasan al-Bannain Egypt in 1928. It was designed to function as the spearpoint of the Islamo-fascist movement and its crusade against the West.
The Brotherhood spawned al-Qaeda and Hamas. Its doctrines make up the core of the terrorist jihad conducted by organizations such as Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, Hamas and the government of Iran. Its agendas have been clear since its creation: infiltration, subversion and global terror with world conquest as the goal.
