The Muslims Are Everywhere! A Response to Michele Bachmann

Posted: 08/02/2012 6:25 pm

I confess, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, until recently I didn't believe your theories of an Islamic infiltration of the U.S. government. Muslims walking the corridors of the highest offices in the land, influencing policy makers, becoming legislators, interning, lobbying, creeping along with the sharia they spread -- it seemed like a lot offear-mongering hype.

But I was wrong. I realized this when, a few days ago, I sat in the Pentagon with a couple of hundred other Muslims and listened to a rousing speech on the beauty of fasting in Ramadan by the Ambassador of South Africa to the U.S., his Eminence Ebrahim Rasool. He recited Quran and narrated hadith in the Pentagon. Prior to this, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta had given warm remarks on welcoming Muslims during Ramadan and honoring the great religion of Islam. We broke our fast together, following the example of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) with dates and water. Middle Eastern dates inside the Pentagon -- think about that. We then prayed together, all kinds of Muslims, uniformed servicemen and women and civilians, again in the Pentagon. We then had our iftar of pure Pakistani, and therefore definitely halal "Muslim," food. All of it right inside the Pentagon.

Later that evening I returned home with a book entitled "Muslim Veterans of American Wars." It lists the names of hundreds of American Muslim servicemen and women who fought in every war going back to the Revolutionary War. Yes, there were Muslims who fought in the Revolutionary War. And the War of 1812. And the Civil War, WWI and WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War and in our current global War on Terror. As Americans, for America. Were they extremists, having practiced taqqiyah all the way to the graves, even dying in service? Only God knows. But I'm guessing some of them got Islamic funerals on the government's dime. Clearly in an effort to infiltrate and undermine American democracy and values, and pretty clear proof that the Muslim Brotherhood has been in action long before it actually existed.

Congresswoman Bachmann, are you paying attention? The infiltration is apparently not only deep and wide, extending beyond government offices and into the military, but secret sharia has been on the creep for centuries in the U.S. of A. That's how organized Muslims are, and believe me, we are as surprised as you.

Then there is the medical system. There are an estimated 20,000 Muslim physicians in the U.S. and they even have their own organizations like the Islamic Medical Association of North America and American Muslim Health Professionals. Fortunately, the threat of "hospital jihad" has not gone unnoticed; the highly erudite Pamela Gellar called it out years ago.

When I take a look around my own family I get the willies. My cousin, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Fahad Khan, has done multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq. Who knows how much sharia he injected into the system in all those years. Oh the shame.

And my own father worked for decades as a Supervisor of Inspectors for the USDA. Can you imagine how many cows and chickens he must have blessed Islamically just by inspecting them? Interestingly, the USDA has been filled with dozens, if not hundreds, of Muslim veterinary doctors who came, like my father, from countries like Pakistan and found a great profession within this government agency. Today many of these gentlemen, having served the USDA most of their lives, live like kings on a government pension that your tax dollars help pay for. It boggles the mind, the amount of forethought it must have taken for such an infiltration of the U.S. food system and plundering of government funds.

So there you have it, undeniable evidence that Muslims are indeed everywhere and the Islamification of America must therefore be well underway. We serve and work in nearly every government and private sector in the United States. American Muslims are law enforcement officers, athletes (including an American hijabi Olympic athlete!), artists and musicians, teachers, judges, business owners, you name it. We're driving your cabs, giving you root canals, ruling on your lawsuits, pumping your gas, making your gyros. And all the while innocent Americans are the mercy of our sharia-infested, Muslim Brotherhood-inspired whims. Truly the stuff of nightmares.

Ms. Bachmann, I want to apologize for doubting your claims, and I'm so sorry that everyone is ridiculing you, including pillars of your own party. My heart actually breaks a little bit for you. You're right that we're everywhere, and you're right that many of us are guided by our Islamic faith. It's estimated that by 2030 the number of Muslims in the U.S. will double so it's only going to get worse. There are already a number of Muslim mayors in the U.S., soon there may be Muslim governors, and maybe one day even a Muslim president. And no, President Obama doesn't count.

Keep up the good work Congresswoman Bachmann. You've even got an observant Muslim like me scratching my head at all the Muslims everywhere. As I try to go about my daily life trying to be nice to others, not breaking any laws, loving my country, raising my girls, and cheering for Team USA in the Olympics, you've given me pause to stop and wonder if I'm not also practicing taqqiyah. Am I? I guess neither of us will ever know. But with folks like you leading the nation, it's only a matter of time before history separates the patriots from the traitors, the moderates from the extremists, and our friends from our enemies.
