CAIR: Republicans Pin Terror on Islam, Democrats Don’t
A divide is emerging on the presidential campaign trail over battling
terrorists: how exactly to label the fight. While Democrats tend to talk
about terrorism in general, Republicans increasingly pin the threat directly
on Islam.
All the major Republican candidates regularly weave some form of the phrase
"Islamic extremism" into their stump speeches. Former Massachusetts Gov.
Mitt Romney has taken the rhetoric to a new level, running a television
advertisement about "this century’s nightmare, jihadism."
Democratic candidates generally don’t emphasize linking Islam and terrorism.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton talks more of "global terrorism," while Sen.
Barack Obama refers to "stateless terrorism."
TX Muslims Sue FL Islamophobe for Defamation
Islamic organizations in North Texas are seeking libel damages in a lawsuit
against Joe Kaufman, leader of the Florida-based Americans Against Hate.
Kaufman visited Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington on Oct. 14 to lead a
protest against Muslim Family Day, an event celebrating the end of Ramadan,
a period of holy days on the Islamic calendar marked by fasts and prayer.
The lawsuit, filed Oct. 12, asked a judge to prohibit Kaufman from
threatening, harming or inciting violence against anyone associated with the
outing, in addition to libel damages, according to court records.
CAIR-FL: More Young Muslim Women Choose Hijab
Fareeza Ghani Ali agonized for more than a year before she began draping an
Islamic head scarf over her hair.
To her surprise, her decision earned the respect of friends and strangers.
Now, two years after Ghani Ali began wearing a head scarf, or hijab, her
mother is considering following suit.
Ghani Ali’s decision illustrates a broader shift in the past decade in South
Florida, where religious scholars and clerics say more teenage Muslims at
schools ranging from Nova Southeastern University in Davie to Florida
Atlantic University in Boca Raton are opting for head scarves, sometimes
before their mothers.
The Torah and the Gospels
"Indeed, We revealed the Torah (to Moses): wherein there was guidance and
light. . . And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary confirming
the law that had come before him. We sent him the Gospel: therein was
guidance and light and confirmation of the law that had come before him: a
guidance and an admonition to those who fear God."
The Holy Quran, 5:44-46
