I read an article on Al Jazeera about the supposedly systematic persecution of Muslims in the USA…..
The fundamentals of the video are that an anti Muslim groups in the USA are targeting Muslims unfairly. Much of the video is based on what those who are protesting, and those who fund them are focusing on.
The Muslim Brotherhood it is claimed is a group who’s name crops up most often which they say is unjust……. as it is a misnomer and does not apply to them.
Keith Ellison is a figure that crops up often in the video…. who is now in the senate and has very high aspirations even that the Democratic party resoundingly voted against.
Louis Farrakhan Sr. (born Louis Eugene Walcott; May 11, 1933), formerly known as Louis X, is an American religious leader, black nationalist, activist, and social commentator. He is the leader of the religious group Nation of Islam (NOI) and served as the minister of major mosques in Boston and Harlem, and was appointed by longtime NOI leader Elijah Muhammad as the National Representative of the Nation of Islam.
In his early years he had been connected to many illegal issues, and even being accused of being involved in the murder of Malcolm X.
The video emphasizes the groups which anonymously donate to the promotion of anti Muslim groups in the USA.
These fundamentally being Jewish groups that do not wish to publicize their support.
The implication in the video seems to be that Muslims are being unfairly targeted either by those that have little information, those that want to spread hate, or those that do not have tolerance to other religions.
Tarred with the same Brush?
One of the main arguments from the Muslims seem to be to try and distance themselves from other Militant groups that the West associates with general Islamic practices.
And from those so called Islamophobic’s who say that if you allow a particular religion to get hold and into politics than its a short step to a sharia system.
So we have on both sides benefactors that want one side or the other to prevail.
The likes of Keith Ellison or Louis Farrakhan cannot be relied upon.
So what do we actually see?
In the USA…. which is a country born on religion looks at what is happening not only on their doorstep, but in other countries that seem to indicate that Muslims are being given a benefit that Christians do not normally have advantage of.
For instance in the UK a Sharia court takes priority before local court. The crime of bigamy apparently does not apply to them, or that of ‘common law wives’
The recent case of Tommy Robinson, who has just been sentenced to 13 months in prison for this:
Tommy has been very prevalent in drawing attention to Pedophile gangs.
This sentence is for contempt of court for an earlier similar offense where he was bound to keep the piece for three years two years ago.
Part of the problem seems to stem from the fact that if any they (The Defendants) thought under age girl was older and she was willing…… many get found not guilty regardless of British law. ( A white British cannot use this as defense )
Another problem is that Allah Akbar or God is Great is a universal chant among Muslims.
This guy was chanting this when he cut off the head of Lee Rigby in London (of all places)
Today he wants to apologize to the parents of Rigby…. Read More Here
A further problem for Americans is what seems to be activity against the Christian faith in other quarters, such as bakers that do not wish to bake cakes for Gays.
The Gresham bakers who made national headlines after refusing to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding have closed shop, for the business. Read More Here
So it would seem on multiple fronts that Christians are being victimized…. to them at least!
An interesting short account from the French President of all people….. Read More Here
Then there is the Koran which is universal to all Muslim teachings, yet the American Muslim laments that its the interpretation of the reader that defines the rules.
Well these rules seem definitive no matter how you would wish to define them….
In contrast to Christian teachings of forgiveness as a principal action, and never death.
We do however have this:…….
This is not to say that western Muslims practice such things, but if they stick absolutely to the Koran…. they would be…..and that is what people of other faiths see and some times by example.
Perhaps the Christians have a right to be fearful of a faith that if become the majority have sworn to eradicate all others?
