Muslim Congressman: Islam in America Must Not Retreat


Pages: 1 2

In a May 26 address before the Islamic Circle of North America/Muslim American Society (ICNA/MSA), both Muslim Brotherhood front groups, André Carson commiserated with his audience over how difficult things have been for them since the World Trade Center attacks at the hands of al Qaeda jihadists: “9/11 was tough on Muslims.”

Carson is America’s race-baiting, confirmed socialist and second Muslim Congressman (Keith Ellison is the first), who had a lot of interesting things to say at this event. In video clips surfacing on the internet, Carson made the above comment as well as this eyebrow-raising pronouncement, to the applause of his Muslim-American audience:

America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Koran. And that model that we are pushing in some of our schools meets the multiple needs of students… America must understand that she needs Muslims.

It’s unclear how the rote memorization of the Koran constitutes “educational innovation and ingenuity,” or how madrassas are “meeting the needs” of Muslim students abroad; in places like Pakistan where they abound, they don’t seem to be producing a wealth of world-class scholars or highly-trained professionals, but they do seem to produce a virulent hatred of things un-Islamic.

Last week a mentally retarded man in Pakistan was pulled from police custody by a mob described as “hysterical” and burned to death over allegations that he had burned a Koran. A BBC reporter notes that “the region in question is home to many madrassas, religious schools.” If this sort of violent, irrational fanaticism is representative of their enlightening educational paradigm, then perhaps Congressman Carson needs to rethink his recommendation.

Unsurprisingly, only conservative websites picked up on his “madrassas” comment; it was completely ignored by the mainstream media. But imagine instead if a Baptist Congressman addressing the Southern Baptist Convention suggested that schools in America should be modeled after seminaries, and that Bible memorization and Baptist religious instruction should be the focus of education. Imagine the uproar from the Christian-hating left and their media enablers. Imagine the cries of “separation of church and state!” Imagine the fear-mongering among the fact-challenged bigots writing for Huffington Post and Slate about the dreaded Christian Right.

But let a Muslim Congressman claim that our educational system should be modeled on Koranic schools, and there is deafening silence from the MSM and the atheistic left.

As the Weasel Zippers website notes, Carson did respond to conservative outrage over his speech by trying to “walk back” his comment with this update on the Huffington Post:

My remarks at ICNA call attention to the fact that faith-based schools throughout this country have excelled because of innovative instructional methods and a willingness to engage different learning styles… While I do not believe that any particular faith should be the foundation of our public schools, it is important that we take note of the instructional tools these schools utilize to empower their young people. Christian, Jewish, and Islamic schools have experienced notable success by casting off a one-size-fits-all approach to education, and this is a model we must replicate…

Nice try at interfaith inclusion. Except that’s not what he said. He didn’t originally refer to “faith-based schools” in general, but to madrassas. He also didn’t refer to schools with a “Judeo-Christian” emphasis, but to those “where the foundation is the Koran.” He didn’t say America needs Christians and Jews, but Muslims.

    In the interest of fairness, why *shouldn't* terrorists be represented in Congress? If this fellow wants to worship a made up moon god (allah), and emulate a disgusting child rapist (mohamat, the moon god's inventor), isn't it his right as a Terrorist-American?
    allahu snackbar.

    • John Hancock

      That is a great comment about the religion( or maybe CULT) of islam is all about.
      Thank you

      "In the interest of fairness, why *shouldn't* terrorists be represented in Congress?" Are you kidding me? They alread are…. AIPAC has accomplished something like the election of 33 Jewish congressmen…rest assured, State Sponsored Terrorism has been represeted well, VIva La Israel!

    What a disgrace – yes, the Congressman, but, even more so, the idiots that elected that un-American, bigoted fool.

  • Sage on the Stage

    "Allah will not allow you to stop us." As the article says, Carson is clearly against American victory in the war against Islamic America-haters.(aka "The war on terror") Carson is a traitor, period. By promoting Islam in our schools, he has arguably violated the no establishment of religion clause of the U.S. Constitution. Forty years ago, when we had some political will, Carson would have been arrested for his subversive comments; or at least censured by Congress. That needs to happen now.

  • oldtimer

    He should be impeached for his traitorist remarks.

    • sedoanman

      That might be true, but treason doesn't exist any more.

  • Jaladhi

    Another brain dead delusional Muslim!! What else would you expect from him. Yet he is a traitor and should be impeached and charged with treason!!

  • RonaldCarnine

    America didn't become great because our schools are Muslim, our schools became great because w/o exception the schools were founded on a Judeo-Christan ethic. Every one of our first universities and colleges were founded to first train an educated ministry. Harvard, Yale etc. etc. used the Bible as a foundation textbook to train our leaders. There were dozens of primary and secondary schools that were started by Christians to train their children. It is this foundation that led to a sound educational system not Islam. Christianity upheld the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Islam? Attacked American ships and enslaved American sailors and demanded a pay off. Jefferson sent American forces to deal with the threat of Islam. Thus the Marine Hymn.

      "Judeo-Christan ethic" What? People often state these terms as if they were somehow correlative and compatable. Let us look at them in the light: Chrisitan: Jesus is devine. Jew: Jesus is a liar. Don't quite see how those two morals align? Well, of course there's the old "enemy of my enemy is my friend" so yes, in brain dead thinking like that I guess one could come up with the retarded position of "Judeo-Christian" anything…

      • Sage on the Stage

        What is a radical Christian? What is a radical Jew? Everyone knows what a radical Muslim is. The Jews and the Christians believe in the Ten Commandments. Radical Muslims, on the other hand, frequently commit murder in the name of G-d. One of the Commandments plainly says, "Thou shalt not murder." Understand?

      • JoJoJams

        "Chrisitan: Jesus is devine. Jew: Jesus is a liar. Don't quite see how those two morals align?" Do you even know the definition of a "moral"? Because these statements aren't "morals". Who's the brain-dead fool? You must be part of the cult of islam, since you spout a lot of inanities – which is pretty much all that mad mo did. Do you have a 6 year old "wife", and slave concubines, too? Now, if this pi$$es you off, just go home and beat your wife and you'll feel better. Islam only produces ignorant people, and hell on earth, as witness by the entire islamic world and the cesspools of ignorance that abound within the umma.

      For a topical constructive and polite commentary in the opposition please consider: http://www.nobeliefs.com/Tripoli.htm

      I hold that America was not founded upon Chrsitian Religion and or Ideal, and one of the founding fathers was explicit in his underlining of this fact, Mr. President Thomas Jefferson.

    • http://www.facebook.com/mensch.keymelon Mensch Keymelon

      Further more, as a point to what Muslims offered (not to this country albeit), I point to the Constitution of Madina, to underline a historical fact, and to point out the establishment of a just society of peoples from diverse religion and no religion, and diverse tribal and ethinic affiliation under the first federated constitution of any nation: http://www.constitutionofmadina.com/. America was not the first to establish justice and peace through a constitution and a bill of rights, just one of the latest great nations to do as such. Note the model that includes all people in a society with equality is in the American Constitution as well as the Constitution of Madina.

    You need to go to YouTube and watch this excellent video by Stephen Coughlin: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation and its Role in Enforcing Islamic Law.

    So let them "defy and resist " …..and we will hande that accordingly ……..and in kind .

  • effemall

    In the case of traitors and Muslim enemies of America like this one, along with every other type of crime committed by Muslims in America, it might be appropriate to apply their Sharia law, cutting off hands and heads, stoning to death or whatever, out of respect to their religion of peace.

  • Ar'nun

    When they found the Muslim Brotherhood of America's manifesto in a secret sub-basement in 2004 in Virginia, step 3 was to infiltrate the government at all levels. As it comes to pruition, the White House, Congress, and most importantly, the Pentagon are not only silent, but defiant. Arm yourselves. Fortify your homes. This Government now belongs to our enemies. And just like the Revolution, we are on our own.

    It appears censorship is afoot at the noble first amendment supporting FPM! Gee, if one says anything off topic off color insane hateful and evil targetting Islam ( or the hodgepodge they puke out here labeling it "Islam"…and as long as one joins in with the quior and sings the praises of Israel in the same post…it's all good and the Horowitz mob stamps it with approval…no questinos asked. But if colorful entertaining opposition points are raised in context…well, we can't have that now can we? How can FPM be the paraigm of bigotry and xenophobic hatred if we allow someone to post opposition views?

    • guest

      quior?

      • http://www.facebook.com/mensch.keymelon Mensch Keymelon

        Made a personal response to another poster and the FPM monitor blocked it from public view, stripped it of its right to free speech, and then the poor comment was hooded and dragged to a back room at FPM where it was beaten to a pulp electrocuted water boarded and then thrown in to the bit bucket of censorship!

        • JoJoJams

          Yeah – I've had comments kept out, too. But it has nothing do do with your hyperbole and vitriol. Typical of an ignorant muslim though – if you don't get your way and have every word allowed to be sacrosanct, then you go off on some dumb@zz diatribe about how you're a victim. Pi$$ off ya ignorant f*k.

  • kendrick1

    Ellison thinks muslims will overcome and he will have a seat at their table. Poor guy! We have too many people here who believe in Murphy's Law as pronounced by Charles in the movie "Murphy's Law"!

      He kind of has a seat at the head of your table right now whether you like it or not. Seems he must be doing something right…just saying…

  • marios

    • mrbean

      Hey Jamal, the Dhimmi "Useful Idiots" of Islam in America don't realize that the Muslims don't want to be tolerant, they don't want allies, they don't want to assimilate, they want to change America to conform to Islam and Sharia law. Useful idiot Dhimmis just want no conflict and the alligator to eat them last. Muck the Fuzzlims! Kill 'em all, wrap 'em in their prayer rugs soaked in pig fat and put 'em all in piles, burn 'em all using qu'arns for kindling, scatter the ashes over open pig farm excrement ponds, and let Allah sort 'em out. Oh deaaaarrr, I am just sooooo awful.

    • Jaladhi

      Islam is the most criminal mafia like organization. True to your Islamic belief you come here and lie, lie, lie. We know the truth about Islam and no amount of your lying is going to change the truth. i suggest you admit the true nature of Islam and Muslims and leave this cult to join humanity. Just to refresh your memory your insaan al – husaniya started the genocide of 600 Jews of Medina and following that ideal man Mo/allah, Muslims have carried out genocide of non-Muslims all over the world killing and murdering more than 300 million non-Muslims all over the world. India bore the worst fate of your Islamic invasions where your ancestors killed about 100 million Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jains and other non-Muslims. This is the truth about Islam and you should learn it.

      Leave Islam and be a human being!!

    • Ghostwriter

      JAMAL,I'm not surprised that someone like you would attack Jews. Sadly,your religion attacks them as the spawn of Satan. I would have a better opinion of Islam if members of your religion ACTUALLY condemned terrorism against Americans. It has not,it never has,and it looks like it never will.

    • JAMAL

      FRIENDS NO NOT THESE LIES. WE IN ISLAM ARE YOUR BROTHERS. IN ISLAM LIE WE CAN NOT DO. THE HOLY KORAN FORBIDS. IT IS SIN. SEE DID YOU KNOW NOT THIS? NOW YOU LEARN GOOD OF ISLAM. ISLAM IS PEACE. WE HAVE AND LIKE CONVERTSION TOO. PLEASE HATE NOT ON MUSLIMS AND ISLAM. YOU MUST TRUTH AND PEACE HAVE TO GET IN PARADISE. IT IS TRUE. AMERICA GOD WILL IT ONE DAY KNOWS ISLAM THE PEACEFUL TRUE AND MERCIFUL RELIGION.

      • Jaladhi

        Amazing you are back with your lies!! Don't you understand what I wrote about Islam and Muslims. Of course you can't counter the truth so you have repeat your lies. Do you read newspapers – don't you see what Muslims are doing everyday to kill non-Muslims in various parts of the world – Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Iran, Afghnistan, Iraq, Kashmir, various "stans" around Russia, Russia, .and on and on. anywhere Muslims live they kill non-Muslims!!

        So why are these peaceful Muslims of peaceful religion Islam are killing, murdering and raping non-Muslims.

        Leave Islam and live peacefully as a human being. Otherwise you will always be lying "how peaceful Islam is".

        Islam is the only religion in the world which teaches it's followers to kill all non-Muslims!!

        Stop this nonsense how peaceful Islam and Muslims are – it's total lie and we know it well. One day Islam will be eradicated from this earth!!

    "Last week a mentally retarded man in Pakistan was pulled from police custody by a mob described as “hysterical” and burned to death over allegations that he had burned a Koran."

    It is a CRIME against humanity that many millions of the above people – Islam's foot soldiers have been imported into our countries to wage jihad against us as commanded by the Koran book of war. The Koran teaches hate, violence and murder of non-Muslims.

    Islam is the absolute opposite of our superior, beautiful, MERCIFUL Western civilization! Centuries ago, Europeans fought desperate battles against extremely barbaric Muslim invaders. Making it the biggest BETRAYAL in all of human history that our Western nations' leaders have imported Muslims into Europe and Britain to such an extent, that unless the Islamic immigration invasion is reversed, Europe and Britain will become Islamic nations ruled by Muslims and Islamic sharia law not many years from now.

    The suffering of non-Muslims will be beyond bearing.

  • jppc

    You can not stop the growing infuence of Islam and Sharia aw in the USA until Muslim immigration is reduced……

    • curmudgeon

      reduced? no. stopped, then reversed. we have already imported enough muslims to ensure our enslavement and genocide. we need to send all muslims home. all of them. both the imported and home-grown. there is no safe number of muslims in a free society. a nation that has even one muslim has a muslim problem.

  • Linda Rivera

    Why did I waste my time commenting. My comment met ALL of FPM guidelines, but was rejected.

  • SCREW SOCIALISM

    The great thing about the Muslim congressman is that he reveals his true colors. Islamism is at the heart of every terrorist attack and crime against humanity in the past ten years.

    Even the Olympics needs extraordinary levels of security and monitoring thanks to the congressmans fellow Islamists to prevent another Olympics attack and massacre.

  • Mark

    Atheists fear the muslems because they have no faith in god to give them streinth to say I will not submit to Allah.
