Moslem Group Attacks Michael Savage: The Battle Between Taquiya and Talk Radio
2007 Selwyn Duke
will have to forgive me, but I have a difficult time taking the war against
Moslem extremists seriously. No, I
haven’t become the latest in a line of anti-American quislings who say the war
is “all about oil” or that Islamism is not a threat.
It’s just that I have trouble mustering enthusiasm for overseas
ventures when we allow the enemy’s fifth column to operate virtually unopposed
on our shores.
talking about the odious Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group
that could be the legal arm of al-Qaeda. Although
CAIR’s machinations usually go unmentioned by the mainstream media, for quite
some time now it has been training its sights on anyone who would tackle the
Islamic threat with manly strength. It
has carried out campaigns against National Review magazine, radio
personality Paul Harvey, the producers of the television program 24, and
many others who dare say the sultan has no clothes.
And now it is targeting award-winning radio talk show host Michael
has been pressuring Savage’s advertisers to pull their spots from his show,
and I’m dismayed to learn that some businesses have capitulated to their
demands. Among these cowardly
companies are AutoZone, TrustedID, OfficeMax, Citrix Systems Inc., and JCPenny.
I will have them know that as long as they dance with the Devil and
boycott Savage’s show, I will boycott them and encourage others to follow
suit. And I have a very long memory.
not surprising that business would kneel at the altar of political correctness,
as it worships mammon. And, in
truth, many people – the good, the bad and the ugly – use their economic
clout to try to effect social change; why, some on my side in the culture war
are boycotting Ford because it supports the homosexual lobby.
But I really have to wonder if these companies know to whom they’re
kowtowing. Let’s take a closer
look at CAIR.
you think that only those on the right take issue with CAIR, think again.
In point of fact, the organization is so obviously in the pocket of
terrorists that even some of our most left-wing politicians have condemned them.
Just consider the following quotations, the first three of which are by
is] unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its associations with groups that are
suspect.” – Senator Richard Durbin
know [CAIR] has ties to terrorism . . . intimate links with Hamas.” –
Senator Chuck Schumer
praise [CAIR] because they haven't been indicted is like somebody saying, ‘I'm
not a crook.’” – Senator Barbara Boxer
and again [CAIR] has shown itself to be nothing more than an apologist for
groups bent on the destruction of Israel and Islamic domination over the
West.” – Congressman Bill Shuster
would inspire Boxer, Schumer and Durbin – who many characterize as soft on
Islamism themselves (some on the right call Durbin “Turban Durbin”) – to
condemn CAIR so unabashedly? Well,
just read what some officers of CAIR and their associates have said.
Ahmad, the co-founder of CAIR, has made no bones about his desire for Islamic
hegemony. He once stated,
isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant.
The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority
in America, and Islam the only
religion on Earth.”
Ahmad attended a secret meeting at a Philadelphia hotel where Moslem leaders
allegedly plotted to disguise money given to the terrorist group Hamas as
charitable donations (these proceedings were surreptitiously recorded by the FBI
as part an investigation). One of
the other attendees, Shukri Abu-Baker, who was recently tried in a federal
terror-funding case, said,
swear by Allah that war is deception . . . .
We are fighting our enemy with a kind heart . . . . Deceive, camouflage,
pretend that you’re leaving while you’re walking that way. Deceive your
then chimed in, likening the ruse needed to deceive infidels to a head fake in
makes a player believe that he is doing this while he does something else.
I agree with you. . . . Politics is a completion of war.”
reports the website Anti-CAIR,
Ahmad was captured on FBI surveillance tapes at Hamas meetings in the United
1993 explaining that the IAP [Islamic Association for Palestine] could not, for
political reasons, admit its support for Hamas, and then discussing how the
Hamas agenda could be cloaked and advanced.”
CAIR official, Executive Director Nihad Awad, has been more forthcoming.
He once said plainly,
am in support of the Hamas movement.”
the above is just a sampling of the damning truth about these jihadists who
masquerade as civil rights activists.
truly grasp the insidiousness of these closet jihadists, one must understand taquiya,
a principle that gives Islamists the moral authority to deceive infidels.
Taquiya refers to dissimulation, the process of disguising one’s
true intentions by erecting a facade pleasing to his victims.
Writing at Jihad Watch, Gregory M. Davis explains
it like this:
times when the greater strength of dar al-Harb [the House of War – places
dominated by infidels] necessitates that the jihad take an indirect approach,
the natural attitude of a Muslim to the infidel world must be one of deception
and omission. Revealing frankly the ultimate goal of dar al-Islam to conquer and
plunder dar al-Harb when the latter holds the military trump cards would be
the ones guilty of idiocy here are Westerners, as we blithely ignore how these
Islamic interlopers are using our own system to destroy us.
CAIR and its fellow travelers have been using intimidation and the courts
to silence infidels, great and small, who oppose the jihad.
For instance, CAIR sued
the organization I cited earlier, Anti-CAIR, for $1.35 million for “libelous
defamation.” This is, I suppose,
what they call it when you tell the truth about them.
there is the case of former terrorist and current critic of Moslem extremism
Zachariah Anani. For his sin of
exercising his free speech rights, CAIR and other Islamic groups actually
pressured the Canadian government to arrest him under the nation’s hate speech
laws and deport him.
should be noted, however, that CAIR’s definition of hate speech may be a
little different from yours, as in 1998 it co-hosted an event at Brooklyn
College during which radical Moslems characterized Jews as “pigs and
monkeys” (this is also applied to Christians).
I haven’t yet heard CAIR condemn those speakers, though.
But why would they? That idea
is found in the Koran itself and is a common teaching in the Islamic world.
do you remember the case of the six flying imams who were detained before
boarding US Airways Flight 300? CAIR
even went so far as to sue the passengers who reported their suspicious
behavior. The lawsuit has since been
dropped, but it illustrates well the lengths to which CAIR will go to intimidate
Americans into silence.
don’t think it doesn’t work. The
Moslem fifth column in our midst is dropping an iron burqa over commentary that
accurately frames the Islamic threat. Even
if our media didn’t don their politically correct corsets, the fear of career
destruction, legal action and physical harm would be more than enough to still
even fairly tenacious tongues. (As
for the last danger, I recently wrote
about artists who will not address Islam through their work because they fear
for their lives.) And while there is
no evidence that CAIR perpetrates violent action, it visits legal and financial
beheadings on its victims that terrify all but the most intrepid souls.
brings us back to Michael Savage. There
is no one else of his stature who so bravely exposes the Islamist threat.
If CAIR destroys him, they will have felled the World Trade Center of
critics. Who, then, would be willing
to contend with the sword of Islam? Only
the small fish would be left to swim against the current from Mecca, and they
would be next as CAIR and its minions worked their way down the food chain.
don’t have to find yourself on Savage’s side of the aisle to find yourself
in his corner. All good Americans
should be outraged that these fifth-column warriors, these barbarians inside the
gate, these vile interlopers, are targeting our countrymen for destruction.
If you want free and open debate about one of the most important issues
of our time, Islamic Jihad, you should care about CAIR.
It is a terrorist-enabling organization that has no place in “dar al-Harb.”
it shouldn’t be hard to figure out who to support in this battle between taquiya
and talk radio, not even for us pigs and monkeys.
