Predicting Bad News for Either Islamo-fascists or Democrats
Why would this be bad news for Islamo-fascists: Democrat Could Be 1st Muslim Congressman?
“There are four things which are faasiq (corrupt) and may be killed at all times, whether one is in a state of ihraam [for Hajj and ‘Umrah] or not: kites, crows, mice/rats and mad dogs.” - Narrated by Muslim, 1198. source
In America, Islamo fascism is now faasiq. Its practitoners, supporters and enablers are vermin (fuwaysiqah). But in America we have had no significant Muslim speak out against extremism. Ibraim Hooper, spokesperson for CAIR, is a bureaucrat who has zero religious following in the Muslim community, nor does he have any political influence since he was never elected to office.
Islamic religious leaders of national stature are absent from a key discussion. Can we name even one? Here may finally come a congressman, Keith Ellison, who will have to speak for Islam. He will not be able to avoid doing so. As the the first African-American elected to federal office from Minnesota and the first Muslim to serve in Congress, the press will grant him national notoriety hanging on his every word. He may have more of a chance to reconcile and heal a growing rift within the Muslim community than Senator Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. (D) IL.
Three things may come of his office. If he harbors any support for Islamic terrorists, he will lose office and political career in two years. If he attempts to straddle the fence like Ibrahim Hooper has, he will further define the indecisveness of the Democrat party. If he speaks out against Islamic terrorists, of course, he will set a tone for Muslim citizens that has been missing and engender healthy debate.
Molten Eagle normally makes a policy of no comment upon political activities in other states. This one will have national significance, however. Good or bad, we need a guy like this (not to be construed as an endorsement of lawyers in any political office), in my opinion. You may disagree.
