Muslims discover Ron Paul

Filed under: American interests, Anti-Zionism, Blogroll, Islam — mariahussain @ 3:41 am

After the Republican debate on Tuesday evening in Dearborn, Mich., a reporter from the Arab-American News asked Ron Paul what he thought of the term “Islamic fascism.”

“It’s a false term to make people think we’re fighting Hitler,” Paul responded. “It’s war propaganda designed to generate fear so that the war has to be spread.”

The call has gone out to all the Muslim Americans to hurry up and register to vote Republican so that they can vote in the Republican Primary to support Ron Paul, the anti-interventionist, non-isolationist candidate for President of the United States. Muslims are opening their wallets and joining teaparty07.com as well.

An anonymous Ron Paul supporter posted the following message on the internet: “Muslims and Americans have an unique window of opportunity for the 2008 election. There is a candidate running as a Republican that would work to completely cut off the funding to Israel, remove ALL US troops from Arab lands, and repeal the Patriot Act. He’s a Republican with Libertarian views named Ron Paul. Ron Paul’s policies ranging from monetary to foreign are top notch. Till now Muslims and Americans have not had an American Presidential candidate that really suited their best interests. This election is unique in that we have a man running as a Republican that speaks the truth…We know the current policies in the Middle East are failing, not only making it less safe in the world but hurting and killing innocent Muslims, which our media callously calls collateral damage. It is our duty as Muslims to follow the truth regardless of how futile it may seem. Ron Paul is the only candidate that does not seem to be swayed by the influential lobbies that the other candidates are catering to.”

Ron Paul stood up in Congress in 2006 and opposed a resolution that sided with Israel in the Lebanon-Israel conflict. He stated the following.

Ron Paul: “Mr. Speaker, I follow a policy in foreign affairs called non-interventionism. I do not believe we are making the United States more secure when we involve ourselves in conflicts overseas. The Constitution really doesn’t authorize us to be the policemen of the world, much less to favor one side over another in foreign conflicts. It is very clear, reading this resolution objectively, that all the terrorists are on one side and all the victims and the innocents are on the other side. I find this unfair, particularly considering the significantly higher number of civilian casualties among Lebanese civilians. I would rather advocate neutrality rather than picking sides, which is what this resolution does.”

Ron Paul has also sponsored a bill to overturn the Patriot Act. He is one of the few members of Congress from either of the major houses that is speaking rationally about these issues. How can we get everyone, and I mean everyone, to join the Ron Paul Republican voter sign-up campaign?

There is general frustration with politicians these days, and the unwillingness to believe that supporting a particular candidate will make a difference. But whether Ron Paul wins or loses, ronpaul.meetup.com is a great way to meet your neighbors who are against the war and organize the community on a grassroots level. If something like Katrina ever happened to us, knowing our neighbors could mean the difference between life and death to our families.

The common thread I’ve been reading lately about leftists and Jews is that they are having trouble getting more than a dozen people to come to their stuff (whether anti-Zionist or Zionist). The anti-Israel movement is not moving forward, because “protest Zionist imperialism” is just not a catchy slogan. By contrast, there are over 400 RP activists against war taxes in Boston alone. Every day the list of passionate anti-war activists grows. Very few of them agree with every single RP position, they just want to get the Lobby out of the way and pull the troops out of Iraq.

One reason it’s working is because of the software. They made the ronpaul.meetup.com site almost like a dating site, where you can make friends with people in or near your zip code. They made it very easy to get together with new people to join the activism. You can’t beat technology, may as well use it.

In the event that RP actually won the election and got the Hamas treatment, his supporters are fully in support of the Right to Bear Arms. It would be interesting to see what followed.

If anti-war protesters want to continue to focus on the genocidal machinations of the global zionist-imperialist military, industrial, financial, political, neoliberal, media complex, they have to be willing to meet with anyone any time to hear what ideas people have to address this, which is our primary responsibility – even if they are Republicans.

If you ever saw Ron Paul in an interview it cannot be said that he avoids discussing vital issues. He is someone who is willing to make a statement and stick by it even when no one agrees with him. I don’t “believe” in electoral politics but it’s not that much sweat off my brow to go and vote to end war.

I think the fact that NO pro-Israel group will let Ron Paul speak at their convention, not even peace Zionists, is evidence enough that he is the only person to put in charge as commander-in-chief. And, even if he loses, making all these contacts with local anti-interventionists is priceless. If you want to expand the peace movement so that it overlaps with the freedom movement like ripples in a pond, you just have to respect the fact that people might agree with you, but for different reasons.

  2. This editorial is excellent and correct. Ron Paul will end the Imperial Empire and bring to a close the American experiment with domination of other cultures through militarism. This is the one great opportunity as we approach the Primary voting season. Please affiliate Republican before the time is up to do so in your state. Michigan will cut off affiliation change by mid December for the January 15 primary.

  3. Thanks for reminding me why I won’t be voting for Ron Paul in 2008.

    Non-interventionist politics was a good idea when a journey by sea of about 2-3 months separated us from our closest rivals imperial centers and we weren’t a world power. But in a world where bombs and planes can travel in less than a few hours and we are considered the world’s superpower non-interventionism makes little sense.

    Moreover, America has a long history of intervening on behalf of its own interests- sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. Foreign intervention shouldn’t be entirely off the table. Like any other option its merits should be weighed and carefully pondered.

  4. If you want to cut off aid to Israel, fine. To be consistent with Ron Paul’s Libertarian philosophy, the same should go for Egypt, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. If you want to protest Zionist-imperialism, fine. The same goes for Islamic imperialism and Pan-Arabism.

    Unless, of course, you’re not really against global domination, except when the non-Muslims happen to be in charge.

  5. The United States is the most powerful nation in the world. With great power comes great responsibility. The question is whether this responsibility means that there should be no limits for the United States to intervene anywhere all across the globe or not. The question is, of course, purely academic – according to the law of the jungle, America can do as she pleases. America is so powerful that she can wipe out all other nations of this world in approximately one week if she wanted to. But, she doesn’t, because that’s not the spirit of America. You sometimes think that America is ruled by corporate interests, supported by religious fundamentalists, but America is so much more. Thank you. /Håkan Tendell, Sweden.

  8. This is a great work. I’m not Muslim myself but my mother was born in Iran and her mother was raised Muslim. You should also post this piece on every Muslim forum on the internet, as widely as possible. Muslims may only be 2% of the American population or so, but that 2% could mean a lot.

  9. By the way, just to clarify, most Muslims want aid to puppet dictatorships in the Arab world stopped too. The US made a treaty with them that we will give them money if they put up with Israel. However, all the Arab financial aid put together does not amount to the amount of money we give to Israel.

  10. Your post is interesting. There are substantial numbers of protestors counted in both the pro and anti zionist camps. For news on anti-zionist protests you might check out http://www.jewsagainstzionism.com which is home to a long standing organization uniting so-called Torah True Jews, who explicitly reject the legitimacy Israel, and who have conducted mass protests in New York City and elsewhere, attracting at least in the tens of thousands. And, of course, within Israel there are many factions, both pro and anti zionist, constantly protesting and drawing large crowds and much recognition.

  11. “Ron Paul actually has a fighting chance to stop the wars because he has a strong base of support among the Young Republicans who are very enthusiastic and remarkably sane. He wins every debate because he makes a ‘self-interest’ argument for ending the wars which works with Americans….There is no other candidate who has indicated willingness to uphold the Constitution when it comes to declaring wars, detainee rights, and our personal freedoms.”

  12. Islamic Fascism does exist, and it’s scary as hell. Ron Paul seems to be taking the high road and playing right into the minds of those who care only about sound bites that are pretty but have no basis in reality.

    That Muslims have not stood up enough against terrorism is a problem and this kind of denyist crap doesn’t help anyone. And Ron Paul, how exactly are Muslim Extremists different from Nazis?

    Comment by andyfox1979 — November 19, 2007 @ 4:33 am

  13. “However, all the Arab financial aid put together does not amount to the amount of money we give to Israel.”

    Thats complete garbage.

    Furthermore, If the muslims lay down their arms,it’s the end of mid-east violence.

    But if the Israelis lay down their arms, it’s the end of Israel…

    And finally, NOWHERE IN THE ARAB WORLD DO ARAB WOMEN HAVE THE FREEDOMS THEY DO IN ISRAEL.

    Keep supporting the mullahcracies – maybe you can stay in the 7th century for another 1400 years.

  17. Musings On The End Of The World We Knew

    I have not written anything for a long time. That is because I am not an event driven writer. I am just chronicling the destruction of the America we knew. It is not for me to say what will replace the world we loved. That is for those who survive. I am on too many enemies lists from too many sources in this conflict to expect to survive the coming conflagration. But I knew that when I was 8 years-old and had my vision of World War III. In that vision 99.5% of the world’s population dies. It was that vision that eventually led me to decide to never have children. I should tell you that a prophet only tells you the future you will have if you do not change your ways. This essay is to bring you the good news that the launching of World War III might have been postponed or even canceled.

    Vladimir Putin just recently formed an alliance with the nations that border the Caspian Sea which means that he is now formally committed to defending Iran if President Stupid decides to drop a few thousand bombs on the Iranians. Putin did nothing when President Stupid invaded Iraq. This is probably because he did not want to intervene while his enemy was destroying himself and his country. I have written an article detailing why attacking Iran would be an absolute disaster for the United States. Of course the people in Washington and Tel Aviv planning this war do not care that the U.S. will be destroyed. They know the dollar is collapsing and that our days are numbered anyway. They know the plan to attack Iran is doomed to failure. They just don’t care. They want us to nuke the Mideast and leave the oil for Israel and the Bilderbergers.

    There are a couple of reasons why there is also domestic pressure against the coming war. The U.S. Military knows that they will be decimated if we wage war against Iran. And there are signs that our Military would revolt rather than launch a preemptive strike which does violate the Nuremberg laws forbidding wars of aggression. Ron Paul, the anti-war Presidential candidate, has more military contributions than any of the others. And the 911 Truth Movement has reached a majority of people capable of thinking. Of course the majority of thinking people still refuse to risk their careers to resist treason, mass murder and national suicide. But I do not believe that any foreign power can get the American people to go along with another World Trade Center controlled demolition.

    Everyone has been talking about a dirty bomb that would radiate tens of thousands. I do not believe that Washington and Tel Aviv can organize such an event. Ask yourself these questions: What percent of the people who had been deliberately radiated by their government do you think would take up arms in violent opposition to the treason that personally sentenced them to die? Would you want to be walking around where they could find you if you had allowed it to happen as our supposed leaders in Washington did in Oklahoma City on 4-19-1995 and at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on 9-11-2001?

    The 911 Truth Movement has penetrated the consciousness of America to such an extent that the only option open is for Israel to initially take on Iran alone knowing that the latter would respond by attacking America and thus giving President Stupid the chance to nuke the Mideast. This is a more likely option, because the Israeli lobby is as powerful inside Russia as it is in the U.S. so no Russian or American politician can even contemplate attacking Israel.

    I have always said that there are two basic factions in the Bilderberg Society and that both are corrupt. The Bilderbergers represent the big banks that launder 500 billion dollars a year in political bribes. They also launder over a trillion dollars in drug money and almost 400 billion dollars a year in illegal weapons sales. And the Bilderbergers have the power to steal more than four billion dollars a week from unaudited federal government contracts. If you still think America is a functioning democracy, ask yourself why the theft of hundreds of billions of dollars each year is of no concern to senate and congressional Democrats and Republicans who have refused to implement auditing in the 25 years after it was first proposed by the Grace Commission?

    If you do not know what a Bilderberger is, please look them up under Bilderberg at Wikipedia. They list Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, David Rockefeller and Paul Wolfowitz among their members. The European Bilderbergers and some of the Americans opposed the Iraq war. They want to let the dollar collapse in 2009 so that their newly elected Bilderberg or CFR President can merge the United States with Canada and Mexico into the North American Union (NAU). The crazies within the Bilderberg Society also support the NAU and ending American sovereignty in 2010 which will repeal the Bill of Rights. They just want the U.S. To nuke the Mideast before it goes under.

    I should also point out that Fred Thompson is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) which also supports ending American sovereignty in 2010. Most of the major candidates that is to say those with money from Wall Street and AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) would go for the NAU if told to do so. Wall Street needs to get moving on the NAU precisely because they know the collapse of the dollar means a permanent 50% pay cut and a temporary 25% unemployment rate in addition to the aforementioned destruction of all pensions and savings. That these things as well as The Great Depression of 1929-1939 would occur were known to the creators of the Federal Reserve Act when it was passed in 1913. The bankers are looking forward to that Glorious Day when all real estate and all corporate stock will belong to them. They just need another Patriot Act, a war, a few “terrorist events” and a North American Union to protect themselves from the wrath of the soon to be impoverished citizens.

    If Israel does draw America into the war against Iran, then you can expect the end of democracy. I once read that someone in the Trilateral Commission said that America suffers from excessive democracy. That will no longer be a problem. As I have said before, on 9-10-2001 Donald Rumsfeld said he could not trace 2.3 trillion dollars in Pentagon spending. That is trillions and not billions. That is enough money to give 230 million dollars each to 10,000 people. Suppose you had taken 230 million dollars and let it run in either illegal drugs or in legal oil futures from $20 oil to $96 oil. You and 9,999 of your friends would have a billion dollars each that you could use to buy America for pennies on the dollar and dispossess the middle class when the dollar does go. The Bill of Rights would have to be abolished to protect Wall Street from the angry mobs. America will cease to exist in any recognizable form if the people who make large donations to the Senatorial, Congressional and Presidential campaigns win. Why do you think there is no movement to audit the books? Why do you think that someone like Catherine Austin Fitts, the former managing partner at Dillon Read, who would love to share her research of the past 25 years is not allowed on TV?

    If the people who launder the drug money and also allowed to steal billions of dollars each week have their way, people like me will be in concentration camps never to be seen again. So this might be farewell unless you care to join me as an unnamed and unnumbered prisoner in a nameless CIA prison overseas. Look on the bright side. We terminated our relationship with Uzbekistan in 2004 when they began charging our government too much money. The Uzbekis used to boil our prisoners in oil for us and the British so that is one less torture to worry about. For those of you who do not join us in one of those many prisons you might remember us when you are living under martial law. If Israel attacks Iran, the Blowback will be enormous and give the Bilderbergers the opportunity to impose martial law in America. The 2008 elections could continue as all the mainstream candidates will do whatever their donors in Wall Street and at AIPAC tell them to do.

    Until martial law or the North American Union repeals the Bill of Rights I will be walking around freely in a decidedly unfree and extremely dangerous world. I promise to post an article if I think either the dollar will collapse really soon or if World War III will start before the end of the week. I see no immediate threats on either front but that is not to say that I am endorsing dollar denominated investments at this point in our history!! This is not an economic advisory service. As I said, I am just chronicling the destruction of the world we loved.

    My profile does hint at an occupation I can practice overseas, but that is on hold for now. I guess I will just have to stick around and see what happens. But then again if there is an opening overseas I would be foolish to not leave a country whose government has decided to die and take its people with it to hell never to return to the Daylight.

    The maniacal desire for darkness on the part of our leaders was also part of that vision I had when I was 8 years-old. Be of Good Cheer. The world they create will not stand as it would be too unbearable for the human spirit. Humanity will ultimately reject our present world leaders but not all of us will be there to see the return of the Sunshine. It is our duty to help make it possible for future generations to know of Love, Joy, Happiness, Freedom and simple Human Dignity for these are the very things that the people who think they own the world neither understand nor value.

  18. So, you’d abandon the people in Iraq to Al Qaeda’s head choppers, abandon Afghanistan to the Taliban, abandon Pakistan and its nuclear warheads to the Islamic Fundamentalists, allow dictators like Huga Chavez and an apocalyptic Ahmadi-Nejad in Iran to control the worlds petroleum supply instead of a free market (allowign them to induce hyper inflation and depression at a whim, and fund terrorism freely)?

    Wake Up. The world does not beleive in liberty and individualsim as you do, so they will not react as you do. Collectivism is on the march, and either we opposed it, or we will be subsumed by it. Isolationism and withdrawal has NEVER worked as a forgeign policy in the face of dicatators and fanatics.

    You bascially consign the world to anarchy – and somehow you stupidly beleive that this will NOT touch the US? Idiots.

    Thomas

    Comment by twps — November 19, 2007 @ 8:09 pm

  22. Michael’s comment confuses unrelated issues.

    As far as I know, Ron Paul does not take the position that Israel should be abolished. He simply does not want to pay for it, and probably most Americans would agree if they were to read a fair accounting of the cost of Israel to America over the last 60 years.

    Ultimately current and future US taxpayers bear this burden. There are different ways to calculate the total cost. In the simplest calculation, which uses constant 2000 dollars and which does not consider alternative investments, the cost per US citizen in 2000 dollars in the year 2000 was $5000 for every man, woman and child.

    I have a family of 5. Under that rather unrealistic calculation, Israel is into my family for $25,000. A more reasonable cost accounting that includes alternative investments is more like $35,000 for every citizen in the year 2000 in constant 2000 dollars.

    Since George W. Bush took office, the cost of Israel to the USA has probably doubled, and the cost of Israel to the USA may have entered the exponential growth phase.

    We are seeing a major transfer of wealth from the pockets of American citizens to Israel, and in fact the result is quite obvious when the current states of the US and Israeli economies are compared.

    The USA does not pay for Arab countries in the way it pays for Israel. Only Egypt receives a large amount of US aid, which is really a bribe to the Egyptian elite to maintain a state of cold peace with Israel. This aid to Egypt is a part of the cost of Israel to the USA.

    On the basis of aid, the USA does not bear nearly as much responsibility for features of Arab social political systems violating American principles as it does for the highly discriminatory system that has evolved out of Zionist principles.

    The USA is the state for all of its citizens while Israel is the state for all of the Jews of the world. As long as the USA maintains an alliance with the Zionist state, non-Americans have a hard time taking it seriously when the US government advocates on behalf of human rights, anti-racism or democracy.

    Such US hypocrisy costs the US big-time in terms of soft power and makes the attainment of US strategic goals increasingly difficult as the quagmires of the Neocon-inspired wars in Afghanistan and Iraq show.

  23. Great article and two thoughts:

    1) There are now about the same number of muslims as jews in America. If muslims would band together and put their wallets where their beliefs are they could also have a great influence on the US as the jews have done.

    2) Ron Paul is for ending all foreign aid to every country. We need it here! What do you think we could do, for example, with the $13,000,000 per DAY that we send to Israel? And btw did you read that Israel now wants us to supply that money only in EUROS? But we’ll do it…

  29. “Any nation that does not attack us will not be attacked” Osama Bin Laden

    Ron Paul earns the most support from the troops financially, active duty or not,then all the candidates combined.

    They only attacked us because we killed 300,000 of their children. How would we feel? I would be AMAZED if they didn’t hate us. We have to learn that our intervention across the world will have dire consenquences:

    1. Bankrupty. We have around 8 trillion in debt and we still send money to countries all around the world. Why? We destroy bridges in Iraq and then re-build them while our bridges here are failing.
    2. Open borders. If the war on terror is so huge, then why do we leave our borders wide open? Anyone should know that leaving your borders open in a war is one of the most idiotic things ever.
    3. Does it really matter to the hundreds of thousands if innocent Americans and Iraqis that lose their children, parents, brothers, sisters, wives, husbands – does it matter to them whether or not it was in the name of liberty?
    4. How does intervening in their world help our cause? All it does is incite hatred and CAUSE terrorism. The ONLY way to deal with terrorism is to figure out how it starts and put an end to it!

    Ron Paul wants to protect America and Americans FIRST! Right now we are SO vulnerable to attack because our borders ore WIDE OPEN! Ron Paul wants to put and end to that. We would have MUCH greater national defense if our troops were here, rather then spread across the sea.

    What business does a country with $8 trillion in debt have in sending more trillions of dollars over seas? How do you think we’re going to pay for that?!?!

    Remember, the soldier is one who prays for peace the most, for they have to suffer the most dire consenquences of war. Support the troops. Vote Ron Paul in the Primaries.

    Comment by shagywashere — December 13, 2007 @ 10:33 am

  30. Let me speak up here as an American Jew who supports Ron Paul: peace in the middle east has been repeatedly thwarted not just by militant jihadis and zionists, by also by continuous interference in negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians by the United States and Saudi Arabia. The Saudi royals really need the war with Israel to distract their people from the dismal job their king and princes do in managing their country, and the United States just hasn’t gotten over its cold-war habits of trying to run the world.

    If Ron Paul is elected, and convinces the congress to put an end to foreign aid in the middle east (and the rest of the world, for that matter), then Israel loses a large amount of US taxpayer money, and the dictatorships all around them, who kill, imprison, and torture far more muslims than the IDF ever could), will suddenly be faced with the loss of *three times* as much of our money. Without the US taxpayer to prop them up, those leaders will have to take a very hard look at whether they can maintain their boycott against the strongest economy in their region.

    Peace and commerce with Israel has been very good for Jordan and Egypt. It would be a very fine thing for Lebanon, Syria, and all the other Arab countries as well.

    Comment by Some Guy — December 24, 2007 @ 5:30 am

  31. WestIndian,

    Jews have not “banded together”. There are Jews in every major and minor political party, (even the nazis… it’s weird, and I don’t want to go into that) and their views on political issues are all over the map. Poor Jews who expect to remain poor tend to vote for the democrats. Rich Jews who made their fortunes themselves tend to vote Republican. Their kids tend to vote Democrat as a way to poke their parents in the eye.

    What I hope you can realize is that seeking political power is why we have the problems we do. People fool themselves to think that everything would be OK, if only they got the *right* guy in the office. What they don’t recognize is that it’s the power itself that’s the problem. It’s like uranium: get too much of it in one place, and Bad Things Happen.

    I support Ron Paul because I checked out his voting record, and so I trust him to do what he says he’ll do. He says he’ll reduce the power of the presidency, and that’s exactly what I want.
