How is the American Muslim community not engaged? How are they different from any other American? Why are their goals different from those of patriotic Americans? Which Muslims would these notorious groups (i.e. CAIR) have head these "roundtables with Muslim leadership for all departments, such as State, Justice, Homeland Security and Health and Human Services" - pious Muslims? Muslims who follow the doctrine outlined in the Quran?
They are going for the jugular. Meanwhile, Islamic Terrorists Are Forming Cells In America
"We...wish to see you instruct senior
officials in your administration to reinstate roundtables with Muslim leadership
for all departments, such as State, Justice, Homeland Security and Health and
Human Services," said the American Muslim Task Force on Civil Rights and
Unveiling the "American Muslims in the American Mainstream," open-letter in a press conference on Monday, December 29, AMT chairman Agha Saeed said the incoming Obama administration needs to take notice of the American Muslim community.
"Ninety-five percent of Muslims voted on the day of election," he stressed.
"That was the highest voter turnout of any community in America."
But there are only 2 million Muslims in the whole country...
An AMT poll found that 89 percent of
Muslims voted for Obama while only two percent voted for Republican candidate
Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), affirmed that US Muslims are "capable" and ready to help bring the change Obama has promised during his campaign.
"American Muslims are [a] vibrant community and we would like to be part of that change."
State Senator Larry Shaw, the
longest-serving Muslim elected official in the US, agreed.
"Within the Islamic community in America are untapped resources," he said.
"We are very highly competent and capable people who can head any secretary department or deputy department or senior-level management."
The United States is home to between six to seven million Muslims.
This is more CAIR propaganda about bogus US Muslim population figures..........
The Muslim organizations urged
President-elect Obama to change some of the unpopular Bush policies.
"As you assume your new duties, there are some areas we hope you will list among your priorities," read their open-letter.
"This includes restoring due process, objective justice, repealing manifestly unconstitutional clauses of the USA PATRIOT ACT, ending COINTELPRO campaigns against Muslim and Arab American communities, and ensuring that our nation rejects the use of ex post facto laws."
Muslims in the US have become sensitized to the erosion of their civil rights under the Bush administration.
Many of them have complained of facing discrimination and stereotypes because of their Islamic attires or identities.
The open letter also asked Obama to pay attention to issues long ignored by the outgoing administration.
"We look forward to your proposals for providing universal healthcare to our citizens and fixing our nation’s broken immigration system."
Many Muslims believe the economy, the
infrastructure and basic services, such as healthcare, have been sidelined for
the interest of Bush's so-called war-on-terror.
The letter also touched on the key issue of foreign policies, asking Obama to assist in ending the deteriorating situation in the Middle East.
"We demand that our government, the US government, take immediate steps to end the immoral and illegal Israeli bombardment of Gaza and its population," said Awad.
The above paragraph shows Muslims engaging in their relentless Jewish blood libels.
