Former Muslims Excluded From King Hearings

Pages: 1 2

I have admiration and respect for Congressman Peter King and I salute him for holding hearings on the “Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response.” However, as a former Muslim I have not seen anyone testifying on our behalf in the hearings. At least one former Muslims should have been there to tell America of our plight. To tell them why we left Islam right here in America. How we had to choose between Islam and loving America. How radicals and jihadists followed us right here after we immigrated to the US to try to force us back into the same old culture of jihad, hatred and anti-Semitism — that we had escaped from in the first place. How radicals who want to deny us our freedom of religion under the US constitution threaten our lives and civil rights daily.

Most former Muslims in the US started by going to mosques but we soon discovered a political and jihadist agenda. In mosques I was told not to assimilate in America, to have more children and to wear Islamic clothes even though I never wore it in the Middle East before coming to the US. We were encouraged to pray wherever we wanted and do that with assertion even if we have to inconvenience others at airports, baseball games or at work. We soon found out that many mosques in America, as they are in the Middle East, are more of a political organization than a place of worship. We noticed that the more pious Muslims in the mosque were the ones seeking confrontation with American culture, such as getting offended if Americans have dogs or alcohol when riding cabs with Muslim taxi drivers.

Muslims are told openly in mosques that they have a mission in America and that is to make Islam the law of the land. Lying to America and getting offended to cover up the jihadist aspiration was encouraged, and became a perfected art and a religious obligation, which further alienated Muslims from American culture.

Many of us former Muslims have left the religion precisely because of the radicalization we confronted in America. But when we dared to stop going to mosques and left Islam altogether our lives turned into a nightmare. Many former Muslims contact me looking for shelter after their lives have been threatened. Just a couple of days ago I was contacted by a young 21 year old Muslim man telling me he left Islam years ago and has to hide the Bible from his family and friends after his own brother told him he was going to kill him if he does not return to Islam.

    she should have been the first witness called at the hearings, followed by Brigitte Gabriel, Geert Wilders and then Theo Van Gogh and Pim Fortuyn. oh yeah, i almost forgot. those last two individuals can't make it.

    Is our man King a phoney? Seems to be looking that way.

    • Chiggles

      Well, what else can you expect from a friend of the IRA?

    • Reason_For_Life

      He's not a phony, King is an idiot. However, on this site there is no such thing as a stupid ally who therefore is unworthy of support.

      King wanted a law forbidding anyone from possessing a gun within 1000 feet of a public official. This is his idea of how to deal with the murder of judge Roll and the attempted murder of Gabriel Giffords. Did this jerk ever think about how such a law would be enforced?

      King also suggested selling off certain parts of the radio spectrum to pay for a new emergency band for fire and police. The band he wanted to sell off contained our radar early warning system.

      This man doesn't think about the consequences of the laws he supports. A person who can't see consequences is not the one you want trying to figure out how to deal with Islamic radicalization.

      If you want to know what's going on inside radical Islamists' mosques you need to talk to people like Darwish who have actually seen it and are fluent in Arabic. You want people who were victims of "honor" crimes to testify about the philosophy behind those crimes.

      If King doesn't do this then how can any rational policy be developed?

    • GrungyOldVan

      Yes, a phony…

      He's the 1000 foot boner gun control dork… total RiNO…

    Lovely religion, I am so glad they are coming here to America. Islam is more like the mofia, you cant get out except in a pine box.

    I dont care how much oil they provide, we cannot tolerate an intolerant religion.

  • jacob

    I can't understand why Rep. ELLISON was given sucha platform and histrionics
    praising the heroism of ONE 9/11 firefighter who happened to be Muslim…
    And the hundreds of others who gave their lives and whose religions are irrelevant
    were cowards or unworthy of praise ???

    Why weren't his feet held to the fire in more important issues being the "raison d'etre"
    of this inquest ??
    So now we see that Mr. KING or whoever helps him, didn't see fit to bring in ex-Muslims
    who could shed way more light or fears ruffling Muslim feathers, than the innocous witnesses he brought in so far which brings to mind the question of whether the Brotherhood made him already an offer he couldn't refuse, since there has been
    death threats ???
    And in the meantime, what is Ms. RENO sidekick in the ELIAN issue doing about ??

    So far, nothing, zilch, nada

    Thanks for asking anyway

    “Ethical subjectivism” is the fundamental concept underlying the advocacy of compromise over principles. Ethical subjectivism is self-contradictory. It holds as an absolute that there are no absolutes, and the explicit principle that there are no principles. To an ethical subjectivist, everyone’s desires are equally valid, and one must acquiesce to others’ demands in the name of fairness. They label those who disagree with them “extremists,” because they dare to hold principles. Ethical subjectivists will not distinguish between rational defenders of individual rights and the most irrational haters of rights, between limited government advocates and the most rabid neo-Nazis. They use the term “extremism” in order to obliterate the distinction.

      Thanks for the education. Got me to thinking that the opposite is "Ethical Objectivism" — seeing and expressing something for what it is. Of course, since BJ Clinton, we live in a world where it's harder to discern what "is" is, thanks to him and his ilk. Now, those who want to make true distinctions are either told to shut up or deliberately excluded. I recall growing up the positive, aspirational and descriptive phrase "being a man of distinction" (a person associated with accomplishment and honor). Now we have too many un-distinctive "go alongs" that perpetuate confusion of our culture (Babble-On).

    • Reason_For_Life

      Good analysis of ethical subjectivism.

      Ethical subjectivists also distort the meaning of "tolerance". It used to mean tolerating people who acted within their rights of free speech and private property. Now it means tolerating people who violate these rights.

      Barry Goldwater fought back against the "extremist" charge by saying:

      "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice…moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue". The ethical subjectivists went ballistic.

      Hi Sniper,__from what you are writing – can I assume you do not believe and disregard Dr. Jaseer speech? I am waiting for a response from Pam Geller or anyone for that matter who can tell me if Wafa Sultan and Ayan Hirsi Ali do/are able to work together with Dr. Jaseer. I wondered myself why these ladies and Barry Rifqa were not invited so far. I just hope that Mr. King is saving the best for the last. The hearings are not over. Maybe we can suggest to Mr. King some muslims or ex-muslims that we want to hear? That we want Congress to hear?

      BINGO!!!

      ' TAQIYYA '
      Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

      Islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

      Islam strives for world domination.

      The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad.

      The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law.

      The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

      Islam is not merely a religion, it is mainly a totalitarian ideology.

      Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

      Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society.

      From civic- and family law to criminal law.

      It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

      Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

      The core of the Quran is the call to jihad.

      Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle.

      Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

      Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible.

      They are opposite values.

      Mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

      That makes Mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

      And you want to base a "Religion" on this a z z -holes rantings?

      Are you INSANE?

  • vlad

    How Peter King can exclude former muslims, who are victims of Islam and need protection to stay alive , is insanity or cowardice or both.
    Don't they have every right to show how vile Islam is???? If anyone knows this
    firsthand , he/she are being deprived of their basic rights. Something is rotten in these hearings. These few brave ex-muslims can bring far more insight and honesty to the hearings than the phony tears of thousands of ELLISONS.

  • steven L

    Muslims spread lies against the US the same way they do against Israel. And the left is supporting the Muslim radicals.

  • sodizzy

    I think they got to him. He was really gung ho at first.

    Then the assorted threats, culminating with a 24-hour body guard….and now the hearings have petered out.

  • Amused

    King's got a big mouth , but no action . He already torpedoed his own " investigation " , first by making Ellison his first witness , second by not inviting those persons who have faced persecution and have realistic information to share with the Amewrican People , and third he has already been intimidated, nuetered as it were by organizations like CAIR , and vocal pc groups in this country . Fourth , the right has failed to come to his rescue , and remain strangely silent , lest they be accused of islamaphobia , and loose their precious votes , another form of cowardice . Unfortunaqtely , what you hear on blogs , is NOT what the politicians on the right ae saying or doing . The left does not bare all the blame here .

  • Amused

    All this may have started out with good intentions and 'some courage " on Kings part , but the courage has EVAPORATED , and King is simply doing political grandstanding ….good luck with this FARCE . All will have to sit through this foolishness and hear King ask the rhetorical question [ which everyone knows the answer] "What is the cause of muslim radicalization in this country " …….IT'S THE RELIGION STUPID !
    And Spencer , of all people is inexplicably not invited as a witness , a persona non-grata at this hearings , as King caves in to pressure from the enemy the bloody hearings are about to begin with .

  • GrungyOldVan

    King ran a floppy hearing so muslims would have a "McCarthy" (Joseph was right btw) to point at when claiming islamophobia…

    Go ahead and trust a gun control RINO… go on, I dare you…

    Less than a week ago I warned people that King was an idiot. I was TD'd over and over for it.

    Any of those" thumbs downers" want to recant?

    Picking allies is like signing a loan contract. If you don't pay attention to every detail you will get screwed.

  • Guest

    Thank you for printing Nonie's statement. Another very brave muslim apostate is Aayan Hirsi Ali, a friend of the late Theo Van Gogh. She lives in hiding because the fatwa has been declared and her life is in danger, just as Miss Darwish describes. Yep, King should have been much stronger, much more determined to bring the truth to light.

  • kafirman

    The culture of liberty under God would be greatly assisted by a strong emotional appeal. (can you tell I've been reading David Kupelian's book, The Marketing of Evil ??) Two such strategic appeals can be made with the former homosexual contingency and the former Muslim contingency.

    Show a 60 sec commercial with an ex-homosexual talking about how he feels better about himself, how he feels more connected to God, how he takes more responsibility for his behavior, how he feels more whole, less given to violence and crime, how he thanks Jesus for his deliverance from that lifestyle.

    Then a 60 sec commercial with a former Muslim. Citing the universal Islamic doctrine of death means that vigilantees killing apostates on the street face precious little threat of punishment. How Koran 2:256 is tayyiqqa'ed to contradict historical and universal Islamic jurisprudence (of all 4 Sunni schools and the Shia ones too).

    Molotov Mitchell, where are you buddy?

  • Amused

    Why in the hell do we need "hearings " ? Especially the type King is carrying on , walking on eggshells .
    Wanna know what muslims are all about ? Just look at the way they treat non-muslims in muslim dominated countries- or in the case of Eurabia , how western dhimmis are treated by their "invited muslim minorities " and their progeny .
    IT AIN'T ROCKET SCIENCE .

    I'm from a muslim country and support this brave lady Ms. Nonie Darwish and Mr. Walid Shoebat. These days almost all the info about islam is sugar quoted, watered down advertisement, funded by oil rich muslim countries, custom made to attract converts = suckers. The only few books left with truth about islam are "The politically incorrect guide to ISlam" by Robert Spencer, "Infiltration" by Paul Sperry and if you want to know about true moderate muslims (correct term reformed muslims) then read about Kamal NAwash, Irshaad MAnji and JAseer Zuhdi! If main stream muslims get their way in USA as well then we'll have no place left to excape to for freedom! THe PC loons don't realize that what they are doing is like labeling jews as "Naziophobe racists" for exposing truth about Nazism. They are falling right into the great Islamic law Al-Taqiya: Lie to infidels to spread Dar-ul-Amaan (house of peace i.e.) Islam in Dar-ul-hurb (house of war) infidel lands!
