My computer was down 72 hours. My service technician determined it was a problem with my Lenovo Laptop (that I would not recommend to anyone except an enemy). I then came down with an energy sapping cold which i have finally licked.
So I continue "We are often accused of cherry-picking the most violent parts of the Koran. so I am not painting a picture here of the average Muslim. I am trying to understand those Muslims, both here in the United State and abroad, who actively seek the destruction of America.
Here at home, the threat is poised by the Muslim Brotherhood and its organizational arms, such as the Council on American Islamic Relations, the Society of North America, and the various Muslim student associations. These groups seek to persuade Americans that Islam is a religion of peace. But let me quote to you from a document obtained during the 2007 Holy Land Trial investigating terrorist funding. It is a Muslim Brotherhood Strategic Memorandum on North American Affairs that was approved by the Shura Council and the organization Conference in 1987. 'It speaks of establishing and and effective Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslim' causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the Muslim observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslim efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.'
Elsewhere, the document says: The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the means. The Ikhwan (the Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western Civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it s eliminated and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet, It is a Muslim 's destiny to perform Jihad and work until the final hour comes....
President Obama in 2007 put the Muslim census in the U.S. at 7 million (today, it is closer to 10 million). In that light, consider a 2007 survey of American Muslin opinion conducted by the Pew Center. Eight percent of the American Muslims who participated in this survey said they believed that suicide bombing can sometimes be justified in defense of Islam. Today, this would mean 700,000 among us would hold that suicide bombings in the name of Islam can be justified. Among Muslims 18-29 years old, 15% agreed with that and 60% said they thought of themselves as Muslims first and Americans second. And 5% said said they had a favorable view of al-Qaeda.
What ever kind of self deception is gripping the architects of our current defense policies, the American people have proved capable of forcing a change in direction when they learn the facts. Americans do not wish to be subjected to Sharia law, owe large sums of money to the Chinese, or to be kept vulnerable to nuclear missiles".
Of all the candidates running to be our new president, only Donald Trump fully understands the threat to our nation and who, not being politically correct, can voice our concerns in a manner that the ordinary American can understand the dangers of the growing threat WITHIN our country.
Remember, that other than my comments, this speech was made in 2011.
