There is a religious component to terrorism

Though we’ve repeatedly been advised that Islam is a “religion of peace,” facts to the contrary place that claim on shaky ground.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has given a lukewarm endorsement to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has stated that refugees entering the U.S. —  significant numbers of whom support some form of terrorism —- should face a “robust security test” but that there should be no religious test. That creates a warm and fuzzy sound bite, but flies in the face of rational thinking amid the horrific acts of violence, here and abroad, committed by radical Muslim adherents. 

When terrorism is a major component of a specific religion, then a security test becomes a religious test. Islamic terrorism is a religious phenomenon. Quranic instruction is to make Islam supreme over all religions. This is the core idea of the battle cry, “Allahu Akbar!”

If the objective is to screen out Muslim terrorists, this is only accomplished by screening for a particular religious belief. Otherwise, we are engaging in dangerous self-delusion. We currently have no handle on who is entering our country.

This 2015 Pew Research survey on Muslims and Islam is not as benign as it initially appears. Younger and with higher fertility rates fueling Muslim population growth, Islam is the  fastest-growing religious group in the world and is expected to surpass the number of Christians worldwide by the end of this century. But it is the graph showing the support for making Sharia the official law of the country in which they live that should alarm.

Here in Phoenix we are fortunate to have Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a moderate Muslim physician and frequent Fox News contributor, who sheds light on the crisis as it relates to Europe and the United States. He is the founder and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy.

    I’ve heard Dr. Jasser both in person and as a guest on Fox. He’s impressive, but unfortunately appears to be a lone voice on this life and death struggle. Where are the other bold Muslims and why don’t they raise their voices in unison? Such action would go a long way in easing the backlash that has resulted due to increasing Islamic terrorism here and abroad.

      Agree. I’m waiting for the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims to get out on the front lines and help to stop the violence being perpetrated around the world. Their latest chance was Orlando. I think Dr. Jasser is an American first. Islam is a religion that instructs its adherents to kill the infidel. The ‘moderate’ Muslims sit back and watch the ‘extremist’ Muslims do their job. That’s their ‘religion’/ideology.

      • East Valley Conservative says:

        Yes, he is an American first. Dr. Jasser earned his medical degree on a U.S. Navy scholarship at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1992. He served 11 years as a medical officer in the U. S. Navy. His tours of duty included Medical Department Head aboard the U.S.S. El Paso which deployed to Somalia during Operation Restore Hope; Chief Resident at Bethesda Naval Hospital; and Staff Internist for the Office of the Attending Physician to the U. S. Congress. He is a recipient of the Meritorious Service Medal. Dr. Jasser is a respected physician currently in private practice in Phoenix, Arizona specializing in internal medicine and nuclear cardiology. He is a Past-President of the Arizona Medical Association

    Satan seeks to destroy what God loves. We know his tactics–what better way to infiltrate your enemy than by a precious freedom we protect with our very lives!

    How can you not believe that religion doesn’t influence entry into the United States. The last groups of Syrians brought over as refugees were 100% Muslim and 0% Christian. Are you going to believe what Obama (our Muslim in charge) says is true or are you going to believe your lying eyes?

    The following are direct quotes from the Quran and the Hadith:

    Quran 4:89: “They (infidels) desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.”

    Quran 8:12: “Instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers;”

    Quran 2:191: “… kill the disbelievers wherever we find them …”

    Quran 22:19-22: “… for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods.”

    Quran 8:12: “Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: ‘I will terrorize the unbelievers. Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.'”

    Quran 8:7: “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.'”

    Quran 8:59: “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”

    Quran 8:60: “Prepare against them whatever arms and cavalry you can muster that you may strike terror in the enemies of Allah, and others besides them not known to you.”

    GOP To Perpetuate DHS’ Politically Correct Training Policies | The Daily Caller

    Really. What good are our ‘conservative’ representatives here in AZ if they keep letting Paul Ryan and company get away with this?! Ryan’s allegiance is with Obama. This is insanity.

    • CD 8 PC says:

      Think about the AZ GOP delegation….who among them is actually conservative? They all talk a good game when elections roll around, but then stick it to us once they are securely back in their lofty DC perches and away from us, the riff and the raff. Even Trent Franks who I previously regarded as conservative let illegals camp out in the front yard of his family home and prayed with them. What do you suppose they were praying for ….deportation or amnesty?

    John McAmnesty speaks!

    Today, McCain takes to the microphone to say that Obama is responsible for Orlando.

    The press is also reporting that McCain is running for re-election and “is locked in a tight race”, but does not mention Dr. Kelli Ward’s name.

    • CD 8 PC says:

      Obama does bear responsibility for opening the floodgates to Muslim “refugees” from unstable nations that are terrorist hotbeds. But so do slime balls John McCain and Jeff Flake, who have both worked tirelessly for amnesty. Our southern border is a portal for all comers, not specifically Mexicans and Central Americans. OTM is the Border Patrol designation for them, it stands for Other Than Mexican. Many Middle Easterners are learning Spanish and coming through with Mexican ‘coyote” transporters. We are in deep trouble with our current “leadership” Throw them all out!

      Vote for DR. KELLI WARD for US Senate and send McCain home..

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      I misspoke. I did not mean to imply that the President was personally responsible – my full stmt:

  7. Saguaro Sam says:

    Yeah, it was too good to be true when McCain took to the airwaves and blamed Obama for Orlando.

    News sources now stating that McCain has walked it back.
    And that the Dems in Congress are calling McCain “unhinged”.

    There are not enough pharmaceuticals in the world to fix Washington.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      It just proves what we all knew …. McCain is long past his sell by date. 😆

    From “The BLAZE”:

    …FINALLY!!! At least SOMEBODY’S covering what Dr. Ward’s sayin’…

    86 TH’ 80 YEAR OLD S.O.B.!!

    • Vince says:

      Good catch, Doc.Thanks,
      Breitbart News has given Kelli Ward good coverage, also. The Arizona Repulsive newspaper is too bonded to the elderly liberal John McCain to ever give her objective coverage. It’s up to us to get the word out.

    GO TRUMP! Go KELLI. It’s up to us. The Feckless GOPe isn’t going to help us. Trump’s GOP advisor said it correctly yesterday. If you’re not on the Trump train then just shut up. Same with Kelli. We’re working in southern AZ for Kelli. It’s our turn.
