More liberal lunacy as political correctness runs amok
There’s a good chance you missed the news that the Arizona Senate’s daily prayer was led using the Qu’ran — not the Bible — by the chairman of the Arizona Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). The fact that he led the lawmakers and all those in attendance through the reading of Surah Al-Fatihah — the opening chapter of the “Holy Qu’ran” — went unreported in any local media.
Robert Spencer of Front Page Magazine shines a bright light with these words: “In America today, representatives of a group linked to an international organization dedicated to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within” (the Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal in the U.S., according to a captured internal document) are consulted daily by law enforcement officials and the mainstream media, and one is invited into the august chambers of government to give his blessings on the proceedings. While there, he leads the lawmakers in a prayer that obliquely condemns their own religious traditions.”
The Arizona Chapter of the Hamas-linked CAIR proudly noted that “on Thursday, February 7th, 2013 – the Arizona State Senate’s prayer invocation was led by Imam Anas Hlayhel – Chairman of the Arizona Chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-AZ.).” The group also thanked Democrat State Sen. Katie Hobbs (LD-24) for “extending the gracious invitation as well as hosting this momentous event.”
Sen. Hobbs, a self-identified Catholic, is apparently content allowing political correctness multiculturalism, diversity and unrestricted tolerance to be her guide rather than the Qu’ran’s many precise references to interacting with non-Muslims. This is but one such citation: “O YOU who have attained to faith! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for your allies: they are but allies of one another and whoever of you allies himself with them becomes, verily, one of them; behold, God does not guide people who are unjust.” (Quran 5:51). Islamic theology is rife with condemnations of Christians, Jews and other non-Muslims.
Yet this same theology is invited into the Arizona State Senate, with the willing participation of the foolish kuffar who had no idea that they were asking Allah that they be led away from the Judeo-Christian foundations upon which America was established and our founding documents are based. Given the fact that they invited an official of Hamas-linked CAIR to address them in the first place, such considerations might not be high priority.
The U. S. Department of State has designated Hamas as a Foreign Terrorist Organization with a radical Islamic fundamentalist agenda.
You might want to give Sen. Hobbs a call and ask her what she was thinking, or if she was. (602) 926-5325.
