(Video) Islamic blasphemy laws coming to America—if the Obummer administration can manage it

 

"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." -George Washington


For quite some time, the counter-jihad has been screaming bloody murder about the OIC and Islamist push to criminalize blasphemy of Islam worldwide. 

It doesn't take a brilliant detective to figure out what this non-answer from Tom Perez implies.

Wake up, America!

------

(Daily Caller) - Barack Obama's top civil rights official repeatedly declined to support religious free speech during a July 27 congressional hearing, despite repeated questioning from Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks, who chairs the House's constitution subcommittee.


Tom Perez, the progressive who runs the Justice Department's civil rights office, refused to answer the questions posed by Franks.

"Will you tell us... that this administration's Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?" Frank asked four times.

Perez refused to answer, saying "it is a hard question, in the sense that when you make threats against someone." Perez then suggested he would respond to draft legislation from the committee, but again refused to answer Frank's question about free speech rights.

Franks' questions were prompted by an October 2011 Daily Caller report, which described a D.C. meeting between Perez and hardcore Islamists, including Mohamed Magid, the Sudan-born, Saudi-trained head of the Islamic Society of North America.

At the end of the public meeting, Perez complimented the Islamists, even though he had watched while Magid called for legal punishment of people who criticize Islamic calls for violence against non-Muslims and subordination of women to men.

In 2009 a federal judge approved the FBI's decision to describe the society as an co-conspirator of a group that was convicted of smuggling money to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood' affiliate in Palestine. Hamas has repeatedly funded, supported and endorsed attacks on Jews.

During the meeting, Perez also complimented the Islamists for lobbying against airline security measures.Perez also listened while another Islamist called for the Justice Department to redefine religious free speech as illegal discrimination.

The department's "civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way" to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female Egyptian-American lawyer who spoke at the event.

"I'd be willing to give a shot at it," said Aziz, who spoke for the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding, a Michigan-based advocacy group.

"We must continue to have the open and honest and critical dialogue that you saw in the robust debate," Perez said just a few minutes after Aziz made her demand for Saudi-style blasphemy laws.

As the meeting session ended, Perez — a Maryland resident, and a former staffer to Sen. Ted Kennedy — climbed the stage to embrace Magid.When the event was over, Perez refused to answer questions from The Daily Caller.

Dwight Holton, another Justice Department official who spoke at the event, also refused to answer questions from TheDC. Holton even threatened to charge TheDC's reporter with a crime for following him while asking questions.

Perez's welcome mat for the Islamists may be part of an administration-wide effort to cultivate 2012 election support among Muslim lobbies, such as Magid's ISNA.

Most of the immigrants' lobby groups are Islamist, partly because few non-religious Muslim immigrants participate in Islamic advocacy.

Perez, who worked as a ethnic lobbyist and amnesty supporter in Maryland, is one of President Barack Obama's most aggressive advocates.

For example, during a October meeting in Alabama intended to rally opponents to the state's successful enforcement of immigration laws, Perez suggested that Alabama residents score lower on education tests than poorly educated immigrants from Mexico and other Latin American countries.

"State school performance may decline," he said, because "some of the [illegal immigrant] kids who are leaving [the state] are some of the highest performing kids," he told reporters.

Report: U.S. preps for extended Muslim protests

Report: U.S. preps for extended Muslim protests | Tonys Interests | Scoop.it

(UPI) - The Obama administration is preparing for the possibility that protests in dozens of countries will persist beyond "the foreseeable future," officials said.
 

Protests at U.S. diplomatic facilities -- some featuring violence -- began breaking out Tuesday in Egypt and have spread to dozens of capitals across north Africa, in the Middle East and elsewhere. Initial reports about Tuesday's attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya -- in which U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed -- indicated the attack followed protests outside the consulate but there have been subsequent reports the attack was planned in advance, independent of anti-American protests.
 

Protests have become less energetic Saturday -- notably in Egypt, where the government initiated a crackdown on protests in Cairo. But senior White House officials say they have determined the outbreak may signal the beginning of a sustained period of turmoil, with diplomatic and political consequences, The New York Times reported.
 

The issue presents the administration and President Barack Obama's re-election campaign with a foreign policy crisis that features widespread images of the U.S. flag being burned and angry demonstrators at U.S. embassies.
 

Michael Rubin, a Middle East scholar at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, said the optics could make Obama look like "the second coming of Jimmy Carter, and that's not something the campaign wants to see."
 

"After Obama's success in killing Osama bin Laden, in killing Qaddafi and in not blowing up Iraq, I think Obama and his aides figured we've got this box pretty well taken care of," Rubin said. "Now that gets thrown up into the air."
 

Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass said: "The reality is the Middle East is going to be turbulent for the foreseeable future and beyond that. It's going to present the United States with any number of difficult choices. It's also going to be frustrating because in most instances our interests are likely to be greater than our influence.
