UI – Part 227 – Profiling Muslims
Not All Muslims are Guilty
A friend sent an email with the following commentary about profiling. A historical summary was provided. It suggests Muslim males have repeatedly been involved in international incidents, yet their travel has been allowed, in America, without overt profiling. Many Muslims would disagree with this statement, yet it seems political correctness does permit a loose standard against those most active historically in committing acts of violence. This is not to say all Muslims are guilty or prone to commit terrorist actions. They are not; and this may apply to the majority of Muslims. They are not terrorists. But there are those among us. It takes but one fox to disrupt the entire coop.
Love God, Love Neighbor
To me the actions and ideology of those whose violence caused the death of many innocent people is a reflection on Islam. From their Scripture they find justification for hatred towards those not of the same mindset, the infidels. They find justification from Allah, their prophet Muhammad and the Quran in doing harm, not only to others but to themselves in suicidal missions. In my humble opinion, Allah, if God, would not condone such heinous, torturous, blood-thirsty, selfish, and murderous raids in His name. Certainly there would be NO eternal (heaven, virgins, Allah, etc.) opportunities for those who in turn acted upon their internal strife, their minds tainted with distortions, or incentivized by others to kill non-Islamic-believers. They are wrongly convinced. How many are there? From experience to date, there are, too many! Who was the inspiration for those whose lives are filled with venom for others? Why would the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful allow such demonic raids. The True God promotes love of neighbor, peace, and love of God to be demonstrated as an example to all others. Love is emphasized, not enmity (hatred).
The example of the Muslim’s portrayed in the following is not suggestive in any way of a peaceful existence. (from the email)
“Stupid Is As Stupid Does
A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves. Pause a moment, reflect back. These events are actual events from history. They really happened!!!
Do you remember?
1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.
2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, Athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.
3. In 1972 a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach and it was blown-up shortly after landing by Muslim males.
4. In 1973 a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome, with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.
5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.
6. During the 1980’s a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.
7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.
8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year Old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.
9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and an US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.
10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.
11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim males.
12. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.
13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.
14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.
15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by–you guessed it–Muslim males.
16. In 2001 Richard Colvin Reid, the ‘Shoe Bomber’, an admitted Islamic fundamentalist, failed in an attempt to blow-up AA flt 63 flying from France to Miami, FL (USA). The explosives were hidden in his shoe to be set-off with a match lighting the detonator cord.
17. In 2009, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallah, or the ‘Underwear Bomber’, failed in an attempt to detonate plastic explosives carried in his underwear on NW flt 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit, MI.
No, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatic’s intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.
Absolutely No Profiling!
They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males alone lest they be guilty of profiling.
Have the American people or any free Nation completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason???
( Note: The itemized items not italicized (16 & 17) were added. Also the website The Religion of Peace[i] lists recent as well as historical attacks worldwide conducted in the name of Islam killing innocents. Since 911 there have been over 19,950 such attacks. They did not involve airlines or have access that might suggest profiling, but do show the hatred and violence conducted worldwide in the name of Islam.)
This emailed statement suggesting profiling should be applied to all Muslims, males in particular. I suggest reading it is context with the question WHY. Why were these men compelled to do as they did? Who taught them such hate? What leader of a faith-based community with a love of God, or in this case Allah, would allow their congregation to go forth and commit murder in the name of Allah. If they are a religious body seeking salvation and an eternal life with Him, would they not be more purpose driven if they sought peace and understanding?
Suras as a Reminder – Incentives to Terrorize
May I remind the readers of a few Suras – verses from the Quran.
Sura 60:4 – “We disbelieve in you and there has arisen enmity and hatred between us and you forever until you believe in Allah alone….”
Sura 8:54 – “Surely the vilest of beasts in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve…”
Sura 8:12 – “…I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. So smite them above the necks (beheading) and smite every finger-tip of them.”
Sura 8:65 – “O Prophet, urge the believers (in Islam) to fight….”
Sura 9:5 – “…slay the idolaters, wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush….”
Sura 9:29 – “Fight those who believe not in Allah….nor follow the Religion of Truth (Islam)…until they pay the tax (jizya) in acknowledgement of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”
Sura 9:49 – “…hell encompasses the disbelievers.”
Sura 9:52 – “…Allah will afflict you (infidels) with chastisement from Himself or by our hands…”
Sura 10:104 – “If you are in doubt as to my religion…I serve Allah, Who causes you (infidels) to die; and I am commanded to be of the believers.”
Sura 2:161 – “Those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers, these it is on whom is the curse of Allah and the angels and men, of all (of them).”
Sura 2:190 – “and fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you…”
Sura 2:191 – “And kill them wherever you find them and drive them out from where they drove you out, and persecution is worse than slaughter…so if they fight you (resist) slay them….”
Sura 2:193 – “And fight them until there is no persecution and religion is only for Allah….”
Where to Draw the Line
When and where do we draw the line to remain safe, free from overt acts of hatred and an ideology that promotes hatred. Islam, from its Scripture, can be referred to as a ‘hate’ document. Where there are hate laws it should be on the list for review. It instills, inspires, calls for, urges, and commands followers of Allah (and we know they are not united except in yelling out the cry, ‘Allahu Akbar’) to fight, kill, behead, slay, and cast terror until non-Muslims recognize Muslims as superior and that Allah is the god they favor because Muhammad says that is so. Muhammad was the example of the use of violent acts to win over followers. Follow or else die. It is my way on the highway to hell as suggested by the historians, interpreters and autocrats of Islam.
Profiling is a way of drawing that line, particularly when it comes to entry into nations that are non-Muslim, westernized or modernized (in the eyes of the Muslim scholars). Politicians, free people, those desiring to live free and independent lives, must look at the Muslim beside them and decide if they are safe or an enemy subject to the demands of Allah and Muhammad as taught and preached by their ulema. Applying independent interpretation of the Scripture of Islam, known often as schools of thought, collective thinking as it were (the mask of the sacred book – the Quran) the scholars and educators of Islam may have inspired and filled the Muslim next to you, a latent terrorist, with sufficient hatred to extirpate another infidel or apostate.
Forgive me for exposing non-violent and peaceful Muslims to the potential to be identified as violent, or potentially so. They must prove otherwise. It would be grand if they did so collectively. The secularists in the Middle East may be attempting to do so today, but they have a long way to go. We can support their efforts, but always be on-guard for the fox entering the chicken coop.
Heaven on Earth
There is but one way to unify all people of the world. The saving grace of our Lord (Jesus Christ) has made heaven on earth possible, but its takes all to believe in the One, the one described as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Biblical God has made salvation possible. Let us be saved together.
Grace and Peace.
