Do Muslims have equal rights? John Esposito confronts rising Islamophobia!

*A Must Read Article by John Esposito

By John Esposito

In recent weeks, Republican politics and attempts across America to block the building of mosques have underscored the impact of Islamophobia in American society.

Republican candidates have jumped on a bandwagon, appealing to racist attitudes towards Islam and Muslims as a political wedge to gain electoral votes in the coming November elections. Bogus charges in 2008 that Barack Obama was a Muslim, as if that should discredit him, is an example of an Islamophobia which is still being used as a political strategy today. This form of political hate speech was addressed by Colin Powell in his endorsement of Obama when he asked:

“Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? … I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, ”He’s a Muslim and he might be associated [with] terrorists.” This is not the way we should be doing it in America.”

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, desperately seeking to recapture his national Republican leader role, tried this past week to create a bizarre national threat about the implementation of Islamic law, shariah, that doesn’t even exist:

“One of the things that I am going to suggest today is a federal law which says no court anywhere in the United States under any circumstance is allowed to consider sharia as a replacement for American law. Period.”

Republican Rex Duncan of Oklahoma followed suit, warning there is a “war for the survival of America,” to keep the sharia from creeping into the American court system. In California, a Tea Party Rally in protest of an Islamic Center Continue reading

The Cat and Mouse Game of Israel and Iran

Below are few links about the growing tension between Israel and Iran. While the propaganda machine and the neo-con Right is using all it can to engage the United States in the war with Iran, presumably to defend itself from Iran (actually defending Israel from Iran); we need to have an awareness of this Cat and Mouse Game.

Israeli recipe for dealing with the world “If force doesn’t work, use some more force.” by Israel Shamir [Veterans Today]

…Israelis armed, supplied and trained Kurdish terrorists for many years; they have turned the Iraqi Kurdistan into their territory with many Israeli businessmen doing their affairs waiting for Kirkuk oil to flow to Haifa as it did in the days of colonial British rule. The Kurds remained a hidden tool of Israel in the region for many years; its activation now shows that Israel still wants to teach Turks a lesson…

Regime Change in Iran: The Fantacy that will not die by William O. Beeman [New American Media]

…The answer that has emerged over four decades in the regime change circles is clearly that “Islam (read Iran) is against the United States.” It is from that point that the fantasizing begins: How to destroy this anti-American Continue reading

Alleged Christian Terrorists said to Target American Muslims

By Juan Cole

FBI raids on the Hutaree Christian militia brought to light this formerly little-known group based in Adrian, Michigan.

Unlike the generally secular white supremacist organizations, Hutaree are explicitly Christians. Many seem to be millenarians, expecting the end of time to come soon. Like the so-called Patriot Movement, they are gun nuts. They are said to be organized to kill the Antichrist, and some reports say that they planned violence against American Muslims.
