More Useful Jihad Idiocy at N.Y. Senate Hearings
by Robert Spencer
Influential leftist and Muslim groups in America want to make sure that you remain ignorant and complacent about the real extent and magnitude of the Islamic jihad threat. To make sure that you do, they brand any honest examination of how jihadists use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and Islamic supremacism as "bigoted and hateful." The absurdities this leads to were made clear during the New York State Senate's homeland security committee hearings last week on the Islamic terror threat facing New York, when the proceedings quickly devolved into yet another circus of political correctness and claims of victim status for Muslims—with little, if any, light shed on the terror threat facing New York and the country as a whole.
Reprising his own failed hearings about the jihad threat, U.S. Rep. Peter King (R.-N.Y.) testified that "99%" of Muslims in this country are "outstanding Americans" who abhor terrorism. King, in other words, said nothing about the comprehensive Muslim Brotherhood initiatives that I wrote about in my 2008 book Stealth Jihad, which documents the multifaceted nonviolent campaign to assert the primacy of elements of Islamic law and custom over American law and custom. Yet so many Americans have now awakened to this campaign that at least 14 states are considering initiatives to ban Islamic law (sharia).
