More Muslims than ever are running for political office this year. The Associated Press reported in July this year that 100 Muslims are running for federal and state positions in the current election cycle and nearly half made it through the primaries. Many more are running for seats on local planning boards, school boards and other positions at the local and county level.
A large number of Muslim candidates appear a positive development for many people, especially those on the Left. After all, they’re Americans and have every right to run for office. As one person recently said to me, “They’re just like you and I and have every right like we do”. On the surface that is correct. The question is are they just like you and me?
It cannot be denied that Islam has a long-standing and recognizable plan to take over America and replace its Constitution. The Muslim Brotherhood is the Author of the Explanatory Memorandum that outlines its plan to take over America by what it called ‘a Civilization Jihad’. The Muslim Brotherhood is a designated terrorist group in 7 nations, including the country where it was founded, Egypt. Civilization Jihad means from within. Gaining political office would be one way to achieve its objectives.
There are several Muslim Brotherhood front organizations that are set up to provide support to the growing list of Muslim political candidates. Organizations such as the United States Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), Project Mobilize, Jetpac, and Emgage. The USCMO, a political party for Muslims and the first religion-based political party in U.S. history, formalized its commitment to Muslim candidates at its founding in 2014. Conspicuously absent from the USCMO website are references to U.S. laws or a pledge to uphold the Constitution. Instead, featured prominently is this statement: “The Council places premium importance on defining the common good based on the Quran and the model of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.), and coordinating a cooperative striving among Muslims and their institutions to implement that common good in America.” Does that sound like they are you and I?
There is a disturbing trend of allowing Muslims to pledge their allegiance at their swearing-in by placing their hand on the Quran and not the Bible. That is a major problem. Nothing in the Quran is compatible with our Constitution. Sharia Law, which is the goal of Islam to introduce wherever they become dominate, is not compatible with the Constitution. That is a problem.
As we approach the November elections and subsequent swearing-in ceremonies in 2019, do you think Muslims should have to swear on the Bible? Write your Congressman as I did and see what they say. It’s a short note, with a simple question. “Will you support a Muslim candidate taking his oath of office by swearing on the Quran?” That’s it. No fanfare. And if you do I hope it turns out better than my letters. I got no answers from two of our Congressman. And the one that did answer wrote a lengthy three paragraph diatribe about supporting conservative causes never mentioning the question I asked.
