Radical Islam's Spread to the West

Today, in response to the rapid and unapologetic spread of radical Islam in Britain, English schools get right to ban Muslim veils.

LONDON (Reuters) - Students in England could be banned from wearing full-face Muslim veils for security or educational reasons under government guidelines to be published on Tuesday, officials said.
And in Brussels, a writer named Fjordman has declared a Native Revolt, outlining specific crimes committed by immigrants whom many European governments have simply lost control of, namely Muslim immigrants.

Will the EU listen? While "unelected EU bureaucrats," as Fjordman puts it, ponder immigration, the Taliban, of the self-proclaimed "religion of peace," chop drivers' noses, ears in Afghanistan. These are the gangsters who many would capitulate to.

Here in the U.S., at least, as the New York Times reported: Scrutiny Increases for a Group Advocating for Muslims in U.S. (CAIR - Council On Islamic Relations).

Cair is, (according to the New York Times, which puts it mildly to say the least) "an organization partly financed by donors closely identified with wealthy Persian Gulf governments has emerged as the most vocal advocate for American Muslims — and an object of wide suspicion."

And, as the Times noted, some of our politicians are issuing them awards

Last fall, Senator Barbara Boxer of California issued a routine Certificate of Appreciation to the organization representative in Sacramento, but she quickly revoked it when critics assailed her on the Web under headlines like “Senators for Terror.”

Our legislators, with few exceptions, are truly uneducated when it comes to awareness on these issues. At the very least, if a Senator would choose to commend an advocacy group, regardless its mission, wouldn't one think to ask questions about said group? Whether foolish incompetence or disgraceful pandering, we can't afford to make these mistakes. For a more accurate assessment of CAIR's actions, you can start here.
