Politics and Islam

Michigan city could become first in U.S. under Muslim control. No - this does not mean that civil rights or the US Constitution has been suspended in Hamtramck. It means that there are four Muslims on the primary ballot for city council. IF these four end up on the ballot and IF they ALL win seats on the board, it would mean that all four would join the current (one) Muslim (out of six seats) on the city council of Hamtramck, meaning that 5/6 of the city council seats would be filled by Muslims.

If 3 of the runners win, the council will have a 4/6 majority of Muslims and if 2 win, there will be a 3-3 split.

Remember - this is only a primary. At least 3 of the 4 would have to win both the primary AND the general election in order to gain that majority.

Hamtramck was also in the news in 2004, when the city council passed a noise ordnance amendment that allowed mosques to put the Muslim Call to Prayer (below) over loud speakers that would saturate the town with Islam noise - 5 times every day.

Question:- What is the Muslim Call to Prayer?

Answer:- Text of the call in Arabic with English translation:

Arabic: “Allaahu akbar, Allaah akbar, Allaahu akbar, Allaah akbar; ash-hadu an laa ilaah ill-Allaah, ash-hadu an laa ilaah ill-Allaah; ash-hadu anna Muhammadan rasool-Allaah, ash-hadu anna Muhammadan rasool-Allaah; hayya ala al-salaah, hayya ala’ al-salaah; hayya ala’ l-falaah, hayya ala’ l-falaah; Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar; Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah”

Translation:- “Allah is most Great, Allah is most Great, Allah is most Great, Allah is most Great. I bear witness that there is no god except Allah, I bear witness that there is no god except Allah. I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Come to prayer, come to prayer; come to success, come to success. Allah is most Great, Allah is most Great, there is no god except Allah).

Make no mistake: this is not just an expression of piety. It is a political statement, a statement of Islamic supremacism, and of the will to wage war until Islamic Sharia is imposed over the whole world. "President: Rule of Islam only way for salvation of mankind," from the Islamic Republic News Agency (thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist): (emphasis mine)

What is the connection? The connection is that Islam may not take over the United States by sword - we may simply be outvoted.

One thought on “Politics and Islam

  1. we may simply be outvoted.

    There's a town near me that's well-known for its large concentration of Orthodox Jews, all keen to maintain a civic climate reflective of their religious observances and all effected through proper political channels.

    One of my fondest memories of my Holy Land tour was the sound of the Muslim call to prayer. I think American public life needs regular reminders of God and our minute-by-minute dependence upon Him.

    Church bells, Islamic prayers - all good reminders. Just no recordings please! Real bells and real Muslims uttering prayers.
