First the FBI, now the Pentagon Observing Muslim Culture
Posted by Joshua Price on October 4, 2007
In another example of the U.S. government not clearly defining the real enemy the Pentagon is set to observe the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
I was listening to The Savage Nation earlier this evening and I hear about this story in The Washington Times, so I decided to look it up. Read the following and ask yourself if you believe we are doing everything we can to win this war–on every front.
From The Washington Times:
Navy imam Chaplain Abuhena M. Saifulislam lifted his voice to God as he called to prayer more than 100 Department of Defense employees Monday at a celebration of Ramadan at the Pentagon.
“God is most great,” sang the lieutenant commander and Islamic leader, in Arabic, as iftar — the end of the daily fast began.
Uniformed military personnel, civilians and family members faced Mecca and knelt on adorned prayer rugs chanting their prayers in quiet invocation to Allah.
“We do all we can to help meet the religious needs of our soldiers,” said Deputy Pentagon Chaplain Army Maj. Alan Pomaville, a Christian, who attended the iftar alongside the Muslim chaplains. “The leadership in the [Defense Department] wants to care for the body of the whole soldier.”
As the Pentagon celebrated Ramadan, the White House is in preparations for an iftar feast tomorrow, said Lt. Cmdr. Saifulislam, who will be participating at the White House events.
“President and Mrs. Bush host an iftar dinner every year because they want people around the world to know how much they respect Islam and the many Muslims living in the U.S. who are free to worship as they want, and are an integral part of our society,” said Gordon Johndroe, spokesman for the White House National Security Council.
Now I understand like the good liberals will tell me that not all Muslims are terrorists and that there are many Muslims in the U.S. military that are fighting this War on Terror, and I agree, but do we really need the Pentagon and the White House hosting Muslim religious events?
After reading this and taking what Steve Emerson told us about the FBI mandating cultural sensitivity training for its agents hosted by CAIR, is it any wonder we haven’t made more progress in the War on Terror? Emerson is also right that we have yet to correctly define the enemy: radical Islam. Make no mistake: this is not a war between terrorists and the West, or terrorists versus America; this is a war between radical Islam and Christianity.
We are living through another round of Crusades. Many, of course, do not know about the Crusades because I’m sure the “practitioners of the religion of peace” have probably demanded that period of history be removed from our high school history textbooks, and I’m sure the good liberals have obliged out of their sensitivity towards our radical Muslim brethren.
Loot it up. Know your enemy!
