Obama is enabling and emboldening Islamists to rise across the world....the US is in the path of destruction of Obama and his Islam panderers.

As a future teacher I would pick this document as an article for my students to read for a variety of reasons. Reason #1 would be to provide an alternative point of view. Reason #2 would be to have them examine the contents of the article and more importantly the comments and for them to draw conclusions about this issue for themselves. After all it is not about me placing an idea in their head but about them learning an idea for themselves.

I find this interesting in the fact that it is a non-biased site talking about the muslim people. This is also different in the way that it speaks about Islam. It is important for people to realize how many muslim individuals there are in America, not because they are a detriment to our society but because they are an addition to our culture.

This would be the type of article that I would love to show my students. The point here is for them to understand the Islamic doctrine and how it is not a detriment to our society. However it seems that most of the world is of the opinion that Islam is bad. How then is it the fastest growing religion? Why is it so bad? Are we yet again letting the actions of a few color the many for us?

US Muslims Desecrate U.S. Flag and say they are not loyal to America but Allah--Time to Deport all Islamists?!

littlebytesnews's curator insight, April 21, 2013 5:29 PM

They hate us, they hate our way of life, they hate our flag, they hate our Constitution and are not loyal to America. They will not stand for America when the 'political winds shift'. They want to revive the Muslims...and consider us Godless. They are the Godless people, they worship a false prophet, and Allah is not the same God the majority of Christians and Jews and other believers worship. They do not believe Christ is the son of God. They admit they oppose our government and do not support America.

 

All Americans really need to know about Islam they should have learned from history, starting with the Barbary Coast, but also most recently 9/11 and now the Boston Marathon bombing in America!

 

You burn our flag, your citizenship should be renounced and you should be arrested and deported!! It is a violation to desecrate the flag of the United States. It's time to enforce our laws and demand respect for our country and find out where all these Islamists loyalties really lie. When will the so called 'moderate, peaceful Muslims' in America and around the world condemn this behavior??

 

How would they like us burning their Koran?? Oh yeah, they hate it and they will kill you, riot and declare war against you if you burn their 'holy book'. 

 

Islam is a cult, a fraud. Mohammed was not a prophet, he was a pedophile. It's not Islamophobia to dislike Islam when this is what they teach and preach to their people. It's not just a small minority who thinks this way...Look around the world at all the violence and persecution going on. What group/cult is doing it? Islamists! Jihadists who are at war with non-Muslims, who oppress women, homosexuals, Christians and Jews and will behead you if you burn their Koran or if you are gay or denounce Islam. They are not of Christ, they are of the Devil and they are no better than Nazism. Islam is a political ideology not a religion. "Devout Islamists'' follow the Koran literally and the Hadith, as well as sharia law,all of which oppress non-Muslims and call for death to infidels/non-Muslims.

 

For example:

In the hadith collections, Muhammad proclaims:
"I have been commanded to wage war against mankind until they testify that there is no god but God and that Muhammad is the Messenger of God; and that they establish prostration prayer, and pay the alms-tax [i.e., convert to Islam]. If they do so, their blood and property are protected. [Emphasis added.][16]"

 

"This linguistic aspect is crucial to understanding scriptural exegeses regarding violence. Again, it bears repeating that neither Jewish nor Christian scriptures—the Old and New Testaments, respectively—employ such perpetual, open-ended commandments."

see: Islam vs Judaism and Christianity http://sco.lt/56HGnx ;

 

 

I'm not an expert,but I have become informed and educated and will continue to educate myself rather than keep my head in the sand, but recommend others who live in denial and are afraid of hurting Muslim Islamists feelings should read and learn about this dangerous cult that is spreading worldwide and walking among us.  Here are some resources off the top of my head:
