Pelosi’s Homework Assignment: Read the Quran

January 21st, 2015
by LT. COLONEL JAMES G. ZUMWALT, USMC (RET)

The appointment by Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) of Representative Andre Carson (D-Ind), a Muslim, to a special intelligence committee having access to classified information brings America to an important crossroads in understanding Islam.

Referencing Carson’s religion herein will raise the ire of political correctness (PC) advocates who will suggest this author is Islamophobic or racist (Carson is African-American). Islamophia and racism banners are often raised by those eager to attack the messenger but not to address the message delivered.

The message this author seeks to deliver is that Islam-as its holy book makes clear-is not democracy friendly. It is a slayer of democracies. Good Muslims, defined as those who embrace the Quran as the true words of Allah, are thus “democraphobists.”

Democracies are contrary to the Quran’s teachings and, therefore, are to be destroyed by Allah-fearing Muslims.

Almost everywhere Islam rules today, democracy does not. And, Islam’s ultimate goal, stated in the Quran, is that all other religions submit to it. Those refusing to do so are to be put to the sword.

Democracy is anathema to Islam because Islam rejects the basic human rights standard observed by all democracies-i.e., all human life is equal. The Organization of Islamic States (OIC) has gone on record rejecting this standard set forth in the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Instead, the OIC only recognizes human rights as set forth under sharia law. For those unfamiliar with sharia law, human rights extend only to believers and, more specifically, male believers.

Independent scholars attest to the Quran’s call to violence against non-Muslims. Why then should the author-as well as every American cherishing liberty and freedom-not be concerned about the loyalties of an elected U.S. government official, who practices Islam, having access to classified information?

Pelosi defends this appointment by releasing her PC attack dogs. They seem to believe Muslim Americans can serve two masters-Allah and America. They cannot. Their service is to the former over the latter. Failing to do so is to reject the Quran’s teachings.

The Cliff Notes version of Islam 101 is this:

1. According to the Prophet Muhammad, the Quran represents the exact words of Allah as told to Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel. As such, no man can interpret what Allah has revealed (although at least 20% of the Quran makes no sense to scholars).

2. Any Muslim failing to believe what is written in the Quran and to comply with its teachings is an apostate-the punishment for which is death. Thus, the allegiance of all Muslims is to Allah and Muhammad’s teachings.

3. The Quran sanctions violence in order to impose Islam upon all non-Muslims. Such violence is detailed by Muhammad in the Quran, who even boasts therein about beheading hundreds of Jews who had voluntarily surrendered.

4. Every Muslim’s purpose in life is to work toward a global caliphate in which Islam reigns supreme-again using force where necessary.

PC advocates should heed a veiled threat Carson made in 2012 upon observing the presence of undercover police officers at a Muslim outreach organization’s conference where he was speaking. Playing to his audience, Carson-a former police officer himself-irresponsibly said, “Allah will not allow you to stop us.”

Later, he publicly pushed for schools with Islamic programs, witlessly claiming, “America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Qu’ran.” With a majority of the world’s Muslim population suffering in poverty, such words are uttered either by a fool or a deceiver.

One of Pelosi’s unleashed attack dogs, Adam Schiff (D-Calif), criticized those seeking to hold Carson accountable for his statements above. A fellow California congressman, Schiff took the focus off the message to put it on the messenger, claiming any one questioning Carson’s comments was “un-American” and “contemptible.”

Another disturbing factor is that, during Obama’s time in office, several participants in his Muslim outreach programs who received access to high level U.S. government offices were subsequently linked to illegally funding Islamic terrorist groups.

Pelosi has a history of speaking without having done her homework, evidenced by several outrageous statements she has made over the years.

In 2007, against the wishes of President George W. Bush, she traveled to Syria, foolishly claiming, “The road to Damascus is a road to peace.”

On that trip, she also triggered an international incident, erroneously telling Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad that Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was ready to discuss peace based on Assad’s demand to return the Golan Heights.

And, in a ridiculous effort to blindly support Obamacare without even reading the bill, when queried on its impact, unabashedly responded, “We have to pass the Health Care Bill so you can find out what’s in it.”

We have borne witness to too much foolishness by Pelosi to believe she has any understanding of Islam and what it means to our national security by placing an avowed Muslim-whose allegiance is to a renegade ideology-on an intelligence committee.

Perhaps Pelosi should take the time she failed to take to read the health care bill to now read the Quran.

In fact, the issue of Carson’s appointment should be the impetus for every U.S. congressman to read it.
