Statement of Dr Zuhdi Jasser on the (Cancelled) March 3 Washington Protest

On March 1, Dr Zuhdi Jasser of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy issued the below-linked statement in connection with the planned protest in front of the White House by a group called Shariah4America. The March 3 protest, which was cancelled, was planned to feature the vile imam from Britain Anjem Choudary, head of Islam4UK.

Thanks to Dr Jasser for making this statement. When our feckless political leaders search for true peaceful and loyal Muslims, they should look to figures like Dr Jasser and stop kow-towing to fake moderates like CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, and other Islamic organizations that are wolves in sheep's cloting. One might, in fact, ask where were the voices of these three organizations in reacftion to this despicable planned event.

AIFD has the notion of "Sharia for America" pegged with meticulous accuracy. No religious law is going to become The Law of the Land here.

But this formulation is poorly considered demagoguery: "When our feckless political leaders search for true peaceful and loyal Muslims, they should look to figures like Dr Jasser and stop kow-towing to fake moderates like CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, and other Islamic organizations that are wolves in sheep's cloting."

Labeling certain Muslims as "true peaceful and loyal" is doing them no favors, and does not boost their standing among the Muslims who need to be won over to their point of view. Whatever dealings our government has with CAIR, ISNA and MPAC would be based on their actual presence and substance, not whether they are nice guys. Sometimes engagement can either shift an organization's position, or attenuate its impact. Sometimes, direct confrontation is the more productive course. It's a long-term proposition, not an evening sound byte.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser is every Muslim-hater's favorite Muslim.

Anonymous,

You are the same type of dolt that would call a black conservative an "Uncle Tom".

Yes, and any African American who has actually read "Uncle Tom's Cabin" knows that the man showed incredible courage and resistance, not servility. The editor of the Pittsburgh Courier was quite eloquent on the subject, circa 1960-1975.
