ZOA Western Region to L.A. City Council re Resolution Regarding Islamophobia

Members of the City Council of Los Angeles,

It is disturbing to see that you spent time passing a resolution concerning a problem that does not really exist. It is so nonsensical that it slanders nonsense.

The FBI statistics for 2009 and the LA County Hate Crime Report published by the Anti-Defamation League both show that 4% of religious hate crimes in Los Angeles County are commited against Muslims as opposed to 3% against Protestants, 9% against other Christians, 13% against Scientologists and, wait for it, 65% against Jews. The ADL's report is compiled using official crime statistics as well as information provided to and evaluated by ADL's profession staff, by law enforcement officers, by community leaders and by victims. An epidemic of anti-Muslim sentiment might well have been expected in America shortly after 9/11. It didn't happen then and it's not happening now.

The term "Islamophobia" implies that Americans and, in the specific case of your resolution, Angelinos have an irrational fear of Islam. Considering the attacks against us on 9/11 and the ones in Bali, Madrid, London, Glasgow's airport and Mumbai were all carried out by Muslim terrorists there is nothing in the least phobic about the public's attitude towards radical Islam. The shoe-bomber, the underwear-bomber, the Times Square bomber and Major Hasan at Fort Hood in Texas were all devotees of Islam. However, it is resolutions of this sort along with the insistence on the part of our president that Islam has played a vital and important role in American life, when the facts prove the opposite, that lead to an increasing sense of Islamonausea. In America, when Muslim taxi drivers are excused from carrying blind passengers with seeing-eye dogs because the animal is an abomination to them, when Muslim check-out operators in supermarkets are excused from handling liquor or ham, when a Muslim father kills his daughter for becoming too westernized, when a Muslim husband almost decapitates his wife for seeking a divorce and when an American judge refuses to prosecute a Muslim husband for beating his wife because the beating falls within the rubric of Sharia law our distaste for and suspicion of this retrograde ideology increases by leaps and bounds.

We already have laws that would punish "random acts of violence". When one considers your resolution, along with the possibility of the United Nations actually thinking about a resolution to ban any criticism of Islam, our sense that there is an enormous effort underway to institutionalize Islamic totalitarianism, together with the violence and terror it always engenders, becomes even more acute. It is highly discouraging that the Los Angeles City Council would sink to the level of this enterprise. By your resolution you have aligned yourself with an ideology that subjugates women, gleefully hangs homosexuals & persecutes non-Muslim minorities throughout the world. Thus you have become hypocrites to your own values.

The ZOA looks forward to this resolution being rescinded forthwith.

Pres. Lincoln stated: "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has ever given to man." But several Bible verses are embarrassing to Pres. Obama:
Proverbs 19:10 (NIV): "It is not fitting for a fool to live in luxury - how much worse for a slave to rule over princes!"
Also Proverbs 30:22 (NIV) which says that the earth cannot bear up under "a servant who becomes king."
And Ecclesiastes 5:2-3 (KJV) advises: "let thy words be few...a fool's voice is known by multitude of words."
Although Obama is not descended from slaves, he may feel that he's destined to become a black-slavery avenger.
Or maybe an enslaver of all free citizens!
For some stunning info on Pres. Obama and his fellow subversives, Google "Michelle Obama's Allah-day," "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "David Letterman's Hate Etc.," "Un-Americans Fight Franklin Graham" and also "Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Sarah Silverman."
PS - Since Christians are commanded to ask God to send severe judgment on persons who commit and support the worst forms of evil (see I Cor. 5 and note "taken away"), Christians everywhere should constantly pray that the Lord will soon "take away" or at least overthrow all US leaders, including Obama, who continue to sear their conscience and arrogantly trample the God-given rights of the majority including the rights of the unborn. Do we need a second American Revolution?
