Obama said Senators are fearful that “the gun lobby would spend a lot of money,” accusing them of opposing the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms.
On Friday, shortly after the capture of the surviving Boston Marathon bomber, Obama went on television to tell Americans not to be quick to judge any one group of people. Translation: Don’t blame Muslims.
The President can tell that to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The surviving suspect in the Boston bombings posted links to Islamic websites calling for Chechnya’s independence.
Tsarnaev proclaimed his “world view” as Islam. Other posts from him include: “Salamworld, my religion is Islam” and “There is no God but Allah, let that ring out in our hearts.”
His dead brother, Tamerlan, said once said, “I don’t have a single American friend. I don’t understand them.” He said that despite the fact that he trained almost daily to become a champion amateur boxer while living in Boston.
To this day, some of the best friends I have were people I met at the boxing gym. It seems impossible to me to work so hard for a boxing team with coaches and other fighters and not make friends. Then again, I boxed while in Spokane, Wash., when I was an immigrant from Canada — an immigrant who shared the same Christian and democratic values as my coaches and teammates.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that the Boston bombers rejected, rather than embraced, American values so much so that they sought to terrorize the Nation by killing and crippling women and children. I don’t see this type of behavior in immigrants to America or Canada who are Latino, Asian or Western European.
“Islam is not just a religion,” writes Mark Steyn1 in his book, America Alone: The End of the World as we know It. “Those lefties who bemoan what America is doing to provoke ‘the Muslim world’ would go bananas if any Western politician started referring to ‘the Christian world.’… So it’s not merely that there’s a global jihad lurking within this religion, but that the religion itself is a political project — in a way that modern Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism are not.”
Let me share something that happened at the Calgary airport shortly before my family was boarding a flight. My daughter’s friend is a petite and shy Lebanese young lady. We have known her for more than a decade.
As we headed for the gate, I noticed four women in full Islamic dress walking toward us. As I was lagging behind, I saw our young friend approach them and be rudely rebuffed. I then saw my wife hug her, and I noticed the girl was in tears. I wanted to know why. My wife told me that the women were her aunts and that because she had adopted a Western lifestyle (in part, probably because she was with infidels such as us) she was shunned.
Why Won’t Obama Suspend Islamic Immigration?
It is clear that the President is determined to neither limit nor — Allah forbid — restrict immigration of Muslims into the United States. There is no reason why the United States cannot implement serious restrictions on any or all peoples wanting to reside in America. Switzerland has been doing it for decades.
As Obama continues to respond to the Sandy Hook tragedy with gun legislation, you can bet he will resist any calls for immigration restrictions — especially if Muslims are the target. The only good news is that Obama may have a fight on his hands with the Senate because the Boston bombers came from predominantly Muslim Chechnya, a Russian-occupied nation in the Russian Caucasus.
Senator Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said at a hearing on immigration reform last Friday that it would be prudent to review the process.
Given the events of this week, it’s important for us to understand the gaps and loopholes in our immigration system.
How can individuals evade authority and plan such attacks on our soil?
Other leaders are grasping a fundamental truth about America’s real enemies. Last week, Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.), a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said the Federal government needs to take its blinders off when it comes to immigration:
I do believe that whether it’s Chechnya or whether it’s really any countries from areas where there is fighting going on–particularly terrorist fighting–that we have to be extra careful, extra scrupulous. That would include, to me, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Somalia [and] obviously …. somebody of a Chechnyan background. All of that, to me, we can’t afford to be politically correct and say that somebody coming from a country where there’s a Muslim war going on is the same as somebody … from Switzerland, for instance. There’s a difference.
Islam’s Growing Foothold
Pew Forum2 reports:
In the United States… population projections show the number of Muslims more than doubling over the next two decades, rising from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030, in large part because of immigration and higher-than-average fertility among Muslims.
In 2011, the National Post3 quoted Tarek Fatah, an outspoken secular Muslim leader living in Canada: “[W]hat is different from other immigrant groups is there is a subgroup among Muslims, I call Islamists, who come [to Canada] with the intention of destroying the social fabric of the country.”
As for the majority of Islamic immigrants, most refuse to become part of America’s melting pot. They cling to their unforgiving religion and medieval traditions. Among them are radicals who preach jihad against America. An even smaller minority will accept this call to arms, people like the alleged killer at Fort Hood, Texas, or the terrorists in Boston.
In Canada on Monday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrested two apparent Islamic terrorists who were allegedly planning to derail a passenger train4 and kill Canadians.
I can already hear the outcry from liberals who will label me a racist. But, hey, I didn’t start this fight; the followers of Muhammad did that a decade before I was even born when the United States threw its economic and political might behind Israel.
In his best-seller The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11, Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright traced Islamic hatred of Westerners back to one man, an Egyptian dissident named Sayyid Qutb.
Qutb was an Egyptian author, educator and Islamist theorist who immigrated to the United States in 1948. (He later returned to Egypt.) He has been called “the man who inspired [Osama] bin Laden,” and it is not hard to see why he earned that reputation after you read his philosophy on infidels.
He also brought home a new and abiding anger about race. “The white man in Europe or America is our number-one enemy,” he declared. “The white man crushes us underfoot while we teach our children about his civilization…”
It may be that only two in 10,000 Muslims have bad intentions against the United States; but as the suspected Boston-bombing brothers from Chechnya proved last week, that is two too many.
Yours in good times and bad,

This really is ignorant in a way because how could one be biased and say something so stereotypical to not let a culture come into America. It really isn’t the rest of the people’s fault for that happening of one, I don’t agree at all with this!
This is wrong. The restrition of immigration of Muslims is wrong. You can’t be blaming a whole community over something a person did. Someone really needs to stop this. It is wrong and immoral.
There will always be a group that propagates hate. I know a few people of the faith, and I have to say that they are not the killers that people try and make them out to be. But it’s that one vile section of the faith that has taken it upon themselves to commit Jihad. That one section that tries to speak for the entirety of Muslims. Terrorist activities are NOT exclusive to them; for example, The KKK have committed terrorism, the Animal Liberation Front have committed terrorism, the Black Liberation Army have committed terrorism. It’s impossible to not have terrorism because it’s the exact opposite of peaceful protest. If there is a political message that needs to be made, then this is one of the choices to get that message through. If not the radical Muslims, then it’d be someone else that the media will be fear mongering over.
Restricting the immigration of Muslims is obviously a violation of the first amendment. If I had to guess, I would say that this John Myers probably is a strong defender of the second amendment, and is leary about the gun control legislation that Obama is trying to implement… but he wants to take away freedom of religion because of a stereotype??
