OMG! Muslims!

Okay, this is going to short and quick, because it's basically OLD NEWS... but I was sent an email forward yesterday with the subject line "More quiet appointments by Obama". Of course, with a title like that I knew it had to be good. (And by "good" I mean "annoying, misinformed and probably racist").

Fw: More quiet appointments by Obama:

I bet you never saw this in any newspaper in the USA? Another very quiet appointment?

Obama Appoints 2 Devout Muslims to Homeland Security Posts

(NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, Jew or Protestant...? Just wondering)

Doesn't this make you feel safer already??

Obama and Janet Napolitano Appoint Devout Muslim to Homeland Security Post, Arif Alikhan as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. Source for Announcement: Homeland Security Press Room and atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com

Kareem Shora, who was born in Damascus, Syria was appointed by DHS Secretary Napolitano on Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC) Washington, DC June 5, 2009

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is proud to announce that earlier today at a ceremony held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in ADC National Executive Director Kareem Shora as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? That should make our homeland much safer, huh!!

Was it not men of the "Devout Muslim Faith" that flew planes into U.S. buildings not too long ago. Once again, what is this president thinking?

Yeah, it was that good. Now I don't know who originated this particular version of the email, but I have to roll my eyes at the person who felt it was worthy of forwarding. Even though most of the information is technically "correct" (Alikhan and Shora were both appointed to DHS positions and they are both Muslim-Americans), the sentiments definitely are not "right". And here's why:

1. Just because the appointments were "quiet" doesn't mean they were secret. They weren't highly publicized because... (surprise!) not every tiny little appointment merits a huge press conference. These positions aren't unimportant, but they're not exactly Secretary of Homeland Security either. You may not have read it in the newspapers recently because the appointments took place way back in April and June 2009 respectively. But it wasn't kept "quiet". (If you don't believe me here are the original press releases.)

2. Just because someone is a Muslim doesn't mean they are necessarily a"devout" Muslim. There's one 2007 article from a German magazine that refers to Alikhan as a "devout Sunni" but there are no direct quotes from him about the extent of his alleged devoutness. Shora just refers to himself as a Muslim-American.

3. Just because someone is Muslim (devout or otherwise) or of Middle Eastern descent doesn't mean that they're a terrorist or otherwise dangerous. I don't think this one needs any further explanation. (If you do require further explanation, well, then just go away.)

4. "Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, Jew or Protestant...?" Um, yeah. In fact, a candidate's devoutness is often a selling point... (well, as long as they're from a Christ-based faith.) Barack Obama wasn't devout enough. The devoutness of Mike Huckabee (Baptist) and Mitt Romney (Mormon) were all anyone talked about. Not only did Elizabeth Dole's campaign refer to her religion (including her "devout Methodist" upbringing), but she also tried to bash her opponent Kay Hagan for being an atheist (she wasn't, she actually was a devout Christian.)

5. Using Atlas Shrugs as a reference only weakens one's argument. (In case you're not already familiar with them, one of their "missions" is to "say no to an islamized America". Not exactly the most unbiased source out there.) We were unable to find any blogs upset or worried about these appointments, other than the usual right wing, conservative, Islamophobic, xenophobic, racist ones. (Our "favorite", by the way, is ExposeObama.com. Doesn't it sound like they're about to release an Obama sex tape?)

6. Before his appointment, Arif Alikhan was the deputy mayor of Los Angeles, in charge of Public Safety. Don't you think that if he was some sort of secret terrorist, he would have used that position to facilitate an attack on L.A.?

7. Kareem Shora was National Executive Director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Not exactly a terrorist organization. He had dedicated his life to the civil rights of others and won numerous human rights awards.

8, Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions probably will make our homeland much safer. Diversity in our government is a good thing, not a bad thing. According to a recent poll by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, more than half of those surveyed thought that American Muslims face widespread discrimination. It's no doubt that Arab Americans and American Muslims feel this discrimination (often in the form of racial profiling and Islamophobia) especially from government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security. Showing that the United States government isn't as racist and Islamophobic as some people in the country is a very good thing.

9. It wasn't "men of the Devout Muslim Faith" that flew planes into U.S. buildings. It was Islamic Extremist Terrorists. They're not the same thing!!!! Although there does exist a very small subgroup of radical Fundamentalist terrorists, by far the majority of Muslims are peaceful and moderate. Of course, groups like this exist in various religions and cultures. How would it feel if all Christians were treated like white supremacists, just because of a few small Christian Identity groups?

10. Do I have to make a list of all the horrible things that so-called devout Christians have done? Because I totally can. "Men of the Devout Christian Faith" have committed heinous crimes, often in the name of Christianity... but no one would ever suggest that having Christians in the Department of Homeland Security was a safety risk.

11. How long do you have to be an American citizen before people stop treating you like a "foreigner". The son of Indian and Pakistani parents, Alikhan was born in Canada and raised in California. Shora was born in Damascus, Syria but has lived in the United States for many years. There may be some legitimacy to the argument that Homeland Security posts should be held by natural-born Americans, but it shouldn't matter if they are from the Middle East or elsewhere. I'm not necessarily agreeing with that point, but I would at least understand that argument, as opposed to the "OMG! Muslims!" fear mongering.

It is the same kind of fearful racism that motivates groups like the AFA to suggest that Muslims should not be allowed to serve in the military (because, you know, we just have an overabundance of people wanting to risk their lives for the U.S... we don't need Muslims or homosexuals or even women, right?)

Barack Obama suffered the same xenophobia and Islamophobia (even though he is neither an immigrant nor a Muslim). Come on America, we're better than that! Hey, remember when I said this blog was going to be short and quick? Oh well. And a general request to my friends and family: Please don't send me email forwards that are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, [insert your own here], inaccurate or outdated. Thanks!

I have to ask if these secret Muslims being hired by Homeland Security has anything to do with them possibly KNOWING ARABIC?

We've thrown out some gay military who were gifted in translating Arabic, too. Because we're fucking idiots.

Ours is an envionment where evil is perceived to be rewarded while good is punished. As with everything the Gods have a reason for creating this perception::::
People who fall on the good side of the good/evil scale have more favor, and when they do something wrong the Gods punish them BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO LEARN. The Gods want them to receive this feedback in hope they make corrections and begin to behave appropriately. The Gods DON'T like evil and refuse to grant this feedback.
EVERYBODY pays for what they do wrong, only evil people must wait until their next life before they will experience the wrath of the Gods, manifested in their reincarnation as a lower form of life into environments with increased/enhanced temptations.
Sadly, this allows the Gods to position this perception of evil rewarded as temptation, one which they use as an EXTREMELY effective corruptor.

Both Africa and the Medittereanean are regions which have sexual issues. This is a sign of morbid disfavor once you understand that females are the God's favored gender. Muhammad's (Mohammed's) polygamy halfway through his life as a prophet was preditory. Now a huge percentage of Muslims believes in male superiority and that the abuse of women is God's will. Female genital mutilation is still practiced in Africa. Black misogyny is the most eggregious example in the recent past.
Black member size is temptation to a predisposed population.
The patriarchal cancer spread throughout Europe because of Christianity, of which the majority of policy makers were Italian men. Expect the largest landowner in Europe and the continent's original superpower also played a major role in African slavery.

Militancy in Africa is consistant with the Iraqi example, as was slavery and the KKK here in America:::Fear enforces proper behavior. Without it we see what happens as a result of gross/morbid disfavor:::::AIDS, crack babies, dead young men in gangland retaliation killings. This is the purpose behind many black's historical tendancy towards resistance.
The same principle was true in Europe and throughout the world for centuries:::People whom lived under iron fists were conditioned to think the right way. As a result they experienced higher numbers of children ascend into heaven because they were taught to think and behave appropriately, which they passed on to their children. Our preditory envionment of "freedom" was the primary purpose the Gods had when implimenting this strategy that is the United States, one which they used to spred the cancer of democracy and westernization throughout the world. And the Gods use this tool that is America to prey on the disfavored both at home and abroad:::Much like the ghetto, America in general experiences a heightened level of temptation due to the people's disfavor.

Even the Old Testiment is not to be taken literally, but the Gods do offer clues throughout to help the disfavored:::The apple is a tool of temptation used to corrupt Adam and Eve and cast them out of the Garden of Eden.
There is another lesson to be learned from this passage, and it is quite similar to the vailing issue and the discourse over women's attire which ultimately died in the 70s:::Women are responsible for and control the fate of mankind.

Think about what I say. Consider what I teach. Society is going to become disturbingly ugly as we approach the Apocalypse due to spiralling, runaway disfavor.
I do not know when this will occurr, but it is the God's way to grant some time before they end on Planet Earth.
Make the decision to always be good and never look back. Until you do this technology will employ tactics to test your resolve:::Ridicule, beligerance, doubt and refusal to abandon what people perceive to be their "investment".
Pray daily. Think appropriately. Too many are confident, unaware of the God's awesome powers or their status as antients. Others may fall prey to their positioning.
Be humbled, God-fearing and beware of the God's temptations, for everyone is tested to evaluate their worthiness.
Search rest


Thank you so much for enlightening us, Anonymous. We just hope it's not too late for us to repent to "the Gods".
