This is an open manifestation of political Islam. Jihad by the ballot box is political Islam, a long-term strategy to gain control of a country by manipulating its political process. The survey inadvertently exposed CAIR’s agenda.
Ranked as the most important issue for Muslim voters was “Islamophobia.” (“Islamophobia” was listed as the third-ranked issue in a similar 2014 CAIR survey.) In its press release about its survey, Hamas-tied CAIR’s Government Affairs Manager Robert McCaw noted that “the increase in the number of Muslim voters who say they will go to the polls in their primary elections indicates a high level of civic participation that may be driven at least in part by concern over the rise in Islamophobia nationwide.”
Let’s consider this. In the wake of the San Bernardino and Chattanooga jihad slaughters, the Garland jihad attacks on free speech, and the weekly — sometimes daily — arrests of ISIS terror operatives, some American Muslims are not concerned with the rise of Islamic terrorism in this country, nor are they concerned about the unfathomable bloodshed of non-believers and secular Muslims in the Middle East and Africa. They are supposed to be moderate, and yet some American Muslims are preoccupied with opposition to jihad terror, or “Islamophobia.”
Why aren’t more American Muslims leading the charge for a real reformation in Islam, rejecting jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women, non-Muslims, and gays? Why aren’t more American Muslims working to expunge Islamic texts and teachings of the passages that that inspire jihad? Why are so many American Muslims working to dismantle counter-terror programs that would purge their communities of jihadists? Whose side are they on? It’s obvious.
The results of the CAIR survey are telling, and should concern every freedom-loving American. CAIR says, “73 percent of registered Muslim voters say they will go to the polls in upcoming primary elections and that 67 percent will vote for Democratic Party candidates.”
It is no surprise that close to 70% of the Muslims surveyed will register Democrat, as the Democratic Party is the party of treason. And half of those will vote for the most jihad-friendly candidate, Hillary Clinton. The Democrats recently blocked a bill that would tighten the vetting process for “refugees” coming from jihad nations. The Democrats introduced a bill, HR 569, condemning so-called “Islamophobic speech” and paving the way for the imposition of Sharia speech restrictions.
The Democrats opposed Rep. Peter King’s (R-NY) hearings on “radicalization.” The Democrats are increasingly anti-Israel. In other words, the Democrats are now clearly and plainly the enablers of jihad.
It is a matter of public record that CAIR is “an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad) has reportedly made Islamic supremacist statements (though Ahmad denies making such statements). A California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI, and a Florida chapter distributed pamphlets with the same message. CAIR has opposed many anti-terror measures that have been proposed or implemented , and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates.”
And more is coming: the CAIR press release stated: “McCaw noted that on April 18, CAIR will join other members of the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of leading national and local American Muslim organizations, at the second annual National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. USCMO recently announced a drive to register one million voters prior to the 2016 presidential election.
What kind of voters will an organization with ties to Hamas get registered? One million new voters who will overwhelmingly vote for Democrats, call for restrictions on the freedom of speech, and oppose counter-terror efforts. The jihad of the ballot box is in full swing.
