Albany N.Y Common Council Succumbs To Islamophilia

The city of Albany NY, has decided to propose a resolution to stand with Muslims against Islamophobia. Wake up Albany, this is a slippery slope your elected officials are about to slide down. Resolution 5.11.15R is a veiled attempt to eventually suppress your freedom of speech, all under the guise of a “religion”.

Citing the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a source for statistics on violence and “hatred” towards the Muslim community is the first clue this is nothing more than propaganda being used across the country to silence those speaking the truth about Islam.

CAIR is an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood that has been proven to be a supporter of Hamas with several of its members now serving prison time after 109 indictments came down in the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas TX in 2008. (holyland foundation)

CAIR has also been designated a terrorist organization in the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) as well as Hamas being on the U.S Dept of States Foreign Terrorist Organizations.

CAIR is a supporter of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and its proposal to criminalize speech that could incite violence towards people of faith, specifically Muslims. https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-resolution/569/text

Putting aside your elected officials are lending an ear to a terrorist organization, the resolution itself is nothing more than a commercial for Islam, and most likely drafted by a member of the Muslim community selling the idea that anyone in disagreement with, speaks out against or is intolerant of the doctrine of Islam, is a hater, or Islamophobe.

One of the most problematic points in this resolution is supporting the deception that Muslims are the majority of victims killed by Islamic terrorists. Please tell that to the thousands of Christians slaughtered by ISIS, al-Shabaab, Boko Haram, Al-Nusra and other Islamic groups. Yes Muslims have been killed by their own, but are not the majority.

dabiq

In that same point, it is written “extremists” are a “tiny fraction” of the Muslim community committing these horrific murders, failing to mention only a tiny fraction of that same community speak out against the atrocities in fear of being ostracized and outcast. Have New Yorkers forgotten it only took a tiny fraction (19) of Islamic terrorists to kill over 3000 Americans, bringing America to its knees?  It doesn’t matter how many Muslims are terrorists, it matters they exist.

Finally, what the Islamophiles of Albany’s Common Council apparently are lacking in, besides back bones to reject CAIR, is the knowledge of Islam. Before ever publicly supporting a cause, it is wise to understand its roots. Have any members read the Quran, the Sira, and the Hadiths? Do they know who the prophet Muhammad was? Do they know a “good” Muslim must imitate the life of the prophet Muhammad in everything they do?  Yes, he was peaceful and religious in the Meccan years, but during the hijra to Yathrib, (Medina) he became violent and political. Read it, understand abrogation, and Taqiyyah. Know the doctrine. When you know Muhammad you know the truth about Islam.

Council Members Golby, Applyrs, Conti, Doesschate, Fahey, Herring, Igoe, Kimbrough, Kornegay and Krasher, with the support of Council President McLaughlin introduced the following:

Resolution Number 5.11.15R

RESOLUTION OF THE COMMON COUNCIL STATING THAT THE CITY OF ALBANY STANDS WITH MUSLIM RESIDENTS AGAINST ISLAMOPHOBIA

WHEREAS, throughout its long history, the City of Albany has been built on the strength of its ethnic, racial, and religious diversity; and

WHEREAS, Albany is a city of immigrants. According to U.S. Census data, in 2013, 11.25% of city of Albany residents were born outside of the United States, ranking our city sixth of the top ten cities in New York State with foreign-born populations; and

WHEREAS, as of 2014, Muslims represented about 1.5% of the City of Albany’s total estimated population of 97,856, or nearly 1,500 residents; and

WHEREAS, the regional Muslim population is over 10,000 and includes immigrants from Turkey, Bosnia, Malaysia, Egypt, Pakistan, Iran, India, and African nations, as well as American-born Muslims, who attend six mosques, one of them in the City of Albany; and

WHEREAS, Muslims are integral members of our community, beginning with children attending Albany’s schools and adults represented in all professions including city employees, store clerks, laborers, small business owners, physicians, medical technicians, college professors, chemists, engineers, accountants, artists, musicians, and business leaders; and

WHEREAS, since the Paris terrorist attacks in November 2015, and the San Bernardino terrorist attacks in California in December 2015, fear of Muslims has increased nationwide; and

WHEREAS, incidents of violence and hatred against Muslims, and inflammatory comments by public figures, have also increased, with the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR) stating that it “has received more reports about acts of Islamophobic violence, threats, intimidation, and discrimination targeting American Muslims (or those perceived to be Muslim) and Islamic institutions since the Paris attacks than during any other limited period of time since the 9/11 terror attacks; ” and

WHEREAS, there are prejudicial and unjust actions from our nation’s history, such as the placement of Japanese residents in internment camps during WWII, that show the harmful and consequential results of blaming an entire group of people based on their race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender for the actions of a small segment of that population; and

WHEREAS, in response to the San Bernardino attack, President Obama, in a national televised speech on December 6, rejected the view that there should be a war on Islam; acknowledged that the vast majority of the victims of terrorism are Muslims and that extremists are a “tiny fraction” of Muslims worldwide; and rejected both discrimination against American Muslims and a religious test for those admitted to this country, saying that “Muslim Americans are our friends and neighbors, our co-workers, our sports heroes, and yes, they are our men and women in uniform who are willing to die in defense of our country…;” and

WHEREAS, President Obama also said, “Let’s not forget that freedom is more powerful than fear.”

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Common Council of the City of Albany hereby declares that fear will not divide us; that we recognize that the threats posed by Islamophobia to our American values of religious freedom and cultural diversity are threats against our very way of life in both the City of Albany and the United States; and that we as a community stand firmly with our Muslim residents against Islamophobia in all its manifestations; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Common Council of the City of Albany requests that the Clerk of this Council forward copies of this resolution to _______________

  3. THIS IS CAIR

    CAIR is a U.S. outpost of international jihadism. It is an enemy propaganda organization posing as a Muslim civil rights group. It performs the same function as the Nazi-created German-American Bund in the years leading up to America’s entry into World War Two and the Communist Party USA during the Cold War. (CPUSA members were required to swear allegiance to Moscow.) Such groups propagandize on behalf of hostile foreign powers, winning some converts and neutralizing opposition. Matthew Vadum.

    •”CAIR has proven links to, and was founded by, Islamic terrorists”; and

    JihadWatch director Robert Spencer has “heard of it happening many times before…that CAIR works to seal its events from all critical eyes.” As Middle East Forum director Daniel Pipes has noted, CAIR closed its January “Stand with Prophet” event in Garland, Texas, to reporters from Fox News, the Washington Free Beacon, and other outlets. CAIR even threatened United West reporters who had purchased tickets in advance with arrest and imprisonment.

    “That term [Islamophobia] is an anti-concept that has been deliberately originated to make discussion of the issue impossible. And it’s similar to the term, in another kind of would-be debate that in the mainstream they want to silence… similar to the notion which functions as an anti-concept “climate change denier.” And what that does, it’s a package deal meant to silence… meant to destroy the ability to think, which is part of what makes it an anti-concept.” Ayn Rand Institute senior fellow Onkar Ghate.

    This video and the one below should be watched by everyone in San Bernardino.

    CAIR and the MSA appear to have been involved in this event. Both were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land trial, which involved funneling money to the terror group Hamas. Both have demonstrable ties, documented and noted by the FBI, with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. See, for example, these links:

      Good morning, I have tried to reload the link to the resolution,but it now appears only on Scribd. I have put the entire resolution at the end of the post instead of the link so it can be copied and pasted. Thanks for your comments and information. Hopefully Albanians wake up.

      • Thanks pard. I’m not sure when you sent this…..Jan. 4 (duh) Appreciate your effort. Strangely I was just commenting just now on the half-assed way most websites are designed and formatted (or no print or comment feature, no contact us, etc.) and the fact that I’ve been complaining about supposed “free speech” advocates like Campus Reform who use Fakebook’s comment feature. Meaning that if you’re blocked on Fakebook via the Thought Police “Community Standards”, you can’t comment even if you leave the “Post to Facebook” box unchecked. That is pure censorship. And I get cranky because most people are sheep who don’t care. Even the “advocates” for free speech.

        Again; thanks for responding.
