The Muslim Call to Prayer is one of the Prettiest Sounds on Earth
Americans are aghast that the president approves of the construction of a Victory Mosque by a pro-terrorism imam six hundred feet from Ground Zero. Revolting, yes. Shocking, no. One thing we know about Barack Obama is that he is committed to ruling in direct opposition to three-fourths of the American people on all core issues.
Reread his contemptible speech in Cairo, in which the president spouted flagrant falsehoods about the charms of Islam, while berating the United States for being a bit churlish about radical Muslim ideology after 9/11. Obama’s boss, George Soros, has always thought we made too much of a fuss about 9/11, an event he found “inspiring”:
Hijacking fully fueled airliners and using them as suicide bombs was an audacious idea, and its execution could not have been more spectacular. (George Soros, “The Bubble Of American Supremacy,” The Atlantic Monthly, 12/03)
Politically correct pundits and pols have been insisting since 9/11 that Islam is a Religion of Peace and that jihad is the result of some kind of “misinterpretation” of the Koran.
If that’s the case, Osama bin Laden had better take a review course:
The idea that the Koran commands them to do violence to unbelievers runs from the very top of the international jihadist movement – Osama bin Laden – down to the rank and file. Overall, it is extremely rare – if not impossible – to find a jihadist who does not cite the Koran to justify his actions.
And let’s get this out of the way—left wing pundits, always eager to brandish their consummate ignorance of the Constitution, have been bleating nightly on cable news about the crafty imam’s “absolute right” to build his Monster Mosque anywhere he darned well pleases. Obviously, none of these chattering churls have ever tangled with their local building department. Try to get permits to build a 100 square foot addition to your house. Then lecture us about the constitutional right to build anything, anywhere, anytime.
The courts have long held that our freedoms of expression are not absolute. The government has a right to regulate the time, place and manner of expression. Nobody is telling Muslims they can’t practice their faith. But the state has pretty compelling interests in setting limits on how it’s practiced. For example, some states take a dim view of genital mutilation. Even the American Academy of Pediatrics has retracted its initial support for the abhorrent practice.
Honor killings, while believed by some Muslims to be entirely meritorious under Sharia law, may run afoul of state statutes outlawing homicide, even when in the service of Allah.
Nobody in America has an unassailable right to build anything they want on their own property. It gets even stickier when you don’t even own the property on which you plan to build.
The good citizens in the city of Hamtramck don’t share the president’s enjoyment of the dulcet calls to prayer :
Although hundreds of long-time residents of Hamtramck, MI protested the city allowing the five-times-per-day Muslim call to prayer to be broadcast over Hamtramck’s loudspeakers, the city council voted unanimously in April 2004 to allow it.
If the noise isn’t irritating enough, consider the feelings of non-Muslims who don’t welcome the message that Allah is the only true God.
If Obama himself is not a Muslim, he certainly is hell-bent on emulating Western Europe’s cowering to Islam at the expense of the safety and comfort of the rest of the citizenry.
Growing up as a Muslim, Obama must have learned that according to the Qur’an it is acceptable to lie, deceive and live by a double standard provided in so doing one advances Islamic goals. Muslims only pretend to trust and be friends with non-Muslims; in the deepest of their Muslim hearts they have been taught that all non-Muslims are infidels.
