Conservative Liberal

FDR would have been a Republican today.

Here is why Jews voting for Democrats are suicidal:

This is almost third post in a row on this subject. But this is just so rich, I could not help but post on it (via Little Green Footballs):

The convocation for the Democratic National Committee’s winter meeting was delivered today by Shi’ite Imam Husham Al-Husainy, of the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center in Dearborn, Michigan, and it’s amazing what this spiritual leader managed to get away with saying, in front of America’s Democrat leadership:

In the name of God the most merciful, the most compassionate. We thank you, God, to bless us among your creations. We thank you, God, to make us as a great nation. We thank you God, to send us your messages through our father Abraham and Moses and Jesus and Mohammed. Through you, God, we unite. So guide us to the right path. The path of the people you bless, not the path of the people you doom. Help us God to liberate and fill this earth with justice and peace and love and equality. And help us to stop the war and violence, and oppression and occupation. Ameen.

LGF also links to the video of this. So, what could be wrong with some imam leading a prayer at the DNC meeting? Aren’t we tolerant and respectful of all religions? Well, the problem is that this is not some imam. For the information on this particular imam we go to Debbie Schlussel (also linked to by LGF):

Meet Husham Al-Husainy. In Iraq, he was an aircraft engineer. But in America, he’s an extremist cleric and disciple of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who enjoys huge mainstream support.

…………………………………………………………………………….

This past summer, Al-Husainy seemed very happy leading almost-daily protests of thousands of Hezbollah supporters on the streets of Dearborn and Detroit, swarming with swastikas and anti-Semitic, anti-American signs.

Later, I watched him very much enjoy himself at an anti-Semitic rally of 3,000 Hezbollah supporters at Dearborn’s Bint Jebail Cultural Center. He was among several who delivered hate-filled, anti-American rhetoric. I watched him cheer others on when they called for the hastened destruction of the Jews and when they said Americans are “diseased.”

…………………………………………………………………………….

Imam Husainy was also in great spirits when he led a number of pro-HAMAS and pro-Arafat rallies in the area. Yes, Shi’ites who hate Sunnis to death in Iraq, love Sunnis in Israel when they’re killing the Jews. In late 2004, he seemed thrilled to lead a rally on the streets of Dearborn, commemorating Arafat’s death. He and his followers held signs featuring enlarged photos of Khomeini at the rally.

…………………………………………………………………………….

Imam Al-Husainy and other Shi’ite leaders in Dearborn are not just followers of Khomeini, they are supporters of Moqtada Al-Sadr and proteges of his late uncle, Imam Mohammed Bakr Al-Sadr–who was murdered by Saddam Hussein. Every year, the Al-Sadr Foundation holds a fundraising banquet in Dearborn. Does any Foundation money go to fund the Mehdi Army?

…………………………………………………………………………….

America’s Shi’ite enemies are not just in Sadr City or Central Beirut and Southern Lebanon. They are in America’s own Little Sadr City–East Dearborn, where they danced on the streets after Saddam Hussein’s execution.

Proving the old adage wrong. The enemy of my enemy is not always my friend.

Sometimes, he’s just our enemy. And, unfortunately, he’s living on American soil with permanent citizenship. And a lot of easily-incited followers.

I just have to say this: Debbie Schlussel reminds me of my Canadian cousin: a smart and very opinionated blond Jewish girl (Luba, in case you are reading this, yes, I am talking about you). Just like my cousin, Debbie Schlussel sometimes gets a little too passionate when expressing her opinions. And just like in case of my cousin, Debbie’s opinions have very well thought out rational foundation.
But back to my main point. If this kind of guy gets support from the Democrats, to keep voting for the party that puts this guy forward is clearly suicidal. By the way, this applies not only to Jews, but also to gays and women who want to wear mini-skirts.

  1. I have finally gotten around to reading your post and I have to say that you comparing me, (your blond Canadian cousin)to Debbie Schlussel is a compliment. I share many of her viewpoints and enjoy her “hutzpah” which speaks volumes of her accomplishments. My favorite to date being the following: She caused Caribou Coffee to have its worst financial quarter ever, when Schlussel exposed the coffee chains radical Islamic ownership and leadership of Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi (a supporter of homicide bombings), and caused Starbucks to have its best quarter, when Schlussel exposed the radical Muslim boycott of the Jewish-led chain (June/July 2002). Caribou Coffee’s then-CEO, Don Dempsey, credited Schlussel with driving down sales and profits at his national coffee chain by calling him to the mat on Qaradawi, and her work on this issue was cited in Newsweek and Business Forward magazines. So I say in true Jewish fashion “Hit em where it hurts most- the pocket book.” Now that’s passion!

  2. Luba,
    It was meant as a compliment, for both you and Debbie Schlussel. It is also all true.
    Eric.
