It’s a step up from the usual, and, even if it’s not entirely sincere, at least we are hearing protests from a sector of the American Muslim community against one of their own for a change. In an area with one of the largest Muslim populations in the U.S. – unaffectionately called “Dearbornistan” by certain citizens – a Muslim group is planning a rally to protest the alleged actions by the Nigerian Islamic fanatic and would-be terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who supposedly attempted to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas Day 2009.
The “usual,” of course, has largely consisted of denial and justification for aggressive, violent and anti-infidel activities on the part of professed Muslims, wherever they may be. Such tacitly or overtly approving behavior – as well as what might be considered fearful timidity to declare violence incompatible with their brand of Islam – has created a tremendous amount of resentment and mistrust of Muslims in general by the non-Muslim population.
As I say, even if this effort is not as sincere or popular as non-Muslims would like it to be, it is a move in the right direction and will send a signal and plant ideas in the heads of others. Almost anything is better than the smugness, arrogance and megalomania of many Muslims who truly believe that they are better than non-Muslims and that they are destined to take over the world, against the will of hundreds of millions, and impose Islam upon us all. As many of us know very well from looking at Islamically dominated cultures, nothing could be further from the truth than this conceit.
How about next the “Not in the name of Islam” crowd take on creeps like the one pictured here or the wretches in England led by the foul Anjem Choudary?
A community group in Dearborn, home to a large Muslim population, is planning to protest the actions of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, accused of a failed Christmas-day terrorist attack on Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines Flight 253.
Abdulmutallab’s former teacher described him as a “very devout” Muslim, but members of the local group, known as the the Dearborn Area Community Members, want to make it clear that his actions don’t represent their religious beliefs….
Protest planned to tell world: Islam is peaceful
