Support Daniel Pipes
Yesterday, radical Islamist apologizers and supporters mounted a campaign to block the appointment of Daniel Pipes to the United States Institute of Peace. Send in your support to the President NOW. Those in the vocal minority need to be smacked down by those of us who are interested in truth, security and peace. President Bush has the guts to go around a politically correct Congress to do the right thing. Support him and show him what the country really thinks.
I sent an email yesterday when I heard about the smear campaign of the radical Islamist supporters. I'll probably send another. They may not read every note, but they certainly tally supporters and dissenters, so put it in the subject line ("In support of Daniel Pipes' appointment to the USIP").
I, for one, am sick and tired of groups like CAIR and ANSWER "speaking for America's interests." And remember, when you read their representatives criticizing men like Pipes, they are the ones who want an Islamic USA. They are the ones who have called for the destruction of Israel, Jews, and "non-believers" in general. Do a news search on "Daniel Pipes," and you will find article after article smearing his character, calling him an Islamophobe or an enemy to Muslims. If you have read anything he has written, you would know that he makes a clear distinction between Islam as a whole and Islamist radicals. His venom is aimed at the Islamists.
But that's irrelevant, because these days, if you disagree with something, you are painted as a bigot. How many times have I been told that Islam is a religion of peace? Why? Because I point out the death and destruction that is so ingrained in the religion. I can back up my position with an encyclopedia of examples. Ask the RoP preachers for examples of their peaceful demeanor, and they cannot come up with one. Not a one. Not ONE high-ranking Imam or Sheik has come out and completely condemned terrorism. But CAIR seems to think that Pipes' words, not the actions of their representatives (i.e. Muslims around the world) are shaping the opinions of the average American. Dancing Palestinians on 9/11 is all I need to see. The words in the Arab press are all I need to read. And murder after murder after murder of innocent "infidels" is all I need to know. Pipes couldn't sway my opinion any more than it has already been swayed by radical Muslims themselves, and the non-radicals who refuse to condemn them.
And one more note: Pipes called out the threat of Islamist radicals well before 9/11. He predicted that the threat will come to our shores. So-called "scholars" condemned his warning as anti-Muslim and racist. They shrieked about his intolerance and incitement. Our government did not take him seriously. Bush realizes the value he will bring to this post. So do the terrorist apologist groups, and that has them quite worried.
Don't let them win. It's time to start taking America back.
