In this case, the pic is the lede:
Barack Obama’s request that Muslim Americans help “root out” and confront [their own] ideology in their communities is getting mixed reactions. Muslim leaders say they want to help, but some are not happy that they are being singled out.
“We would never ask any other faith community to stand up and condemn acts of violence committed by people within their groups,” said Palestinian American [extrem]ist Linda Sarsour, who has worked extensively with the Black Lives Matter movement and other minority groups. “The fact that this is only directed at the Muslim community is something that I personally can’t accept.” [emphasis added]
I was going to make a comment about the members of Miss Sarsour's "community" all needing to have their f'ing shoes checked for fuses, but "works extensively with the Black Lives Matter movement" tops that punchline.
“We’re not law-enforcement officials,” said Shahed Amanullah, a Washington, D.C.-based Muslim American entrepreneur with Silicon Valley connections. He has worked with the U.S. government on combating online [Isla]m, but he said it’s unrealistic to expect Muslim Americans to confront violent people in their midst.
Not if he wants to persuade the rest of us that his people aren't violent, culturally imperialistic infiltrators. I mean, come on, Shahed, think how much it would augment your cover story.
By the way, "Bilatis Albinti (بيلاطس البنطي)" is Pontius Pilate in Arabic.
“We’re community members and Americans like everybody else,” he said....
Uh-huh. And when members of all of our "communities" start serially going postal on yours over a period of fourteen centuries, maybe you'll be able to say that without your nose growing to the size of a diving board.
....“and we should have the same relationship with law enforcement that everybody else has."
But how would you get all your virgins that way?
"To expect us to be on the front lines without having the capacity or the support would not be [productive]. It wouldn’t be productive with any community.”
Is he opening the door I think he's opening? And does he realize that's what he's done? Because I think Donald Trump has been pretending to beat it down.
"Moderate" Muslims are enablers and camouflage for their AK-47-wielding Saladins, like duck blinds for hunters, every last one of them. The burden of proof to the contrary rests entirely upon them, and they don't sound too awfully willing to change that perception. Which ought to tell us pretty much everything we already knew.
Thanks for confirming it, Shahed.
