"The chief weapon in the quiver of all Islamist expansionist movements, is the absolute necessity to keep victims largely unaware of the actual theology plotting their demise.
To complete this deception, a large body of ‘moderates’ continue to spew such ridiculous claims as “Islam means Peace” thereby keeping non-Muslims from actually reading the Qur’an, the Sira, the Hadith, or actually looking into the past 1400 years of history. Islamists also deny or dismiss the concept of ‘abrogation’, which is the universal intra-Islamic method of replacing slightly more tolerable aspects of the religion in favor of more violent demands for Muslims to slay and subdue infidels" More here
This is exactly what I was asking Robert Spencer in my interview earlier today here. I wondered if he thought, as I did, that it was more difficult to fight the jihad in America because, on the surface, the Islamists' posture is warm and fuzzy, while they plot and plan to undermine the very tenets of our society by funding and supporting Islamic terror.
Islamists approach each country differently. Violence works in the Middle East and Europe. America is a whole different psyche. We would never put up with that in your face approach. So the mask is kumbaya, the goal is shariah.

NY: LEADERS SUPPORT MOSQUE - TOP
Jennifer Maloney, Newsday, 10/9/06
Local religious leaders spoke out in support of the Islamic Center of Long Island at an interfaith celebration at the Westbury mosque, which Rep. Peter King has alleged is run by extremists.
"We will not be fooled by fearmongering and appeals to bigotry," the Rev. Mark Lukens, pastor of Bethany Congregational Church in East Rockaway, said at a news conference yesterday. "We stand with you proudly, shoulder to shoulder." (MORE)
Who is fooling who?
How about this one? Preaching from the
bull pit pulpit by day, funding terror and murder my night. ROPMA
LOCAL JEWS, MUSLIMS IN RIFT - TOP
Birmingham News, 10/9/06
An Alabama Muslim's ties to an Islamic charity, shut down by the U.S. government for funding activities by the Palestinian militant group Hamas, has caused a rift between Birmingham's Jewish and Muslim communities.
Raed Awad, a Palestinian who moved to Birmingham two years ago, has taken part in numerous interfaith programs, including chanting prayers in Arabic from the pulpit at South Highland Presbyterian Church during a Thanksgiving week interfaith service last year.
But his critics note that when he lived in Florida, Awad raised funds for The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, which the U.S. government shut down in December 2001 for its connections to Hamas.
UPDATE: Conning America in Minnesota at Powerline here;
The sole purpose of Hopsfenperger's story appears to be to whitewash the Nation of Islam in connection with Fifth District congressional candidate Keith Ellison. Unfortunately, while whitewashing the Nation of Islam, the Star Tribune has also whitewashed Ellison's involvement with the Nation of Islam and Ellison's manifold lies concerning that involvement.
Hopsfenperger continues the Ellison whitewash in this story, suggesting that he was merely "collaborat[ing] with the Nation of Islam on common goals." She appears not to know that Ellison was himself a local leader of and spokesman for the Nation of Islam, probably because she has been relying on the Star Tribune for her information about Ellison.
