    Default Muslim ACLU Official: I Emphatically Refuse to Condemn Islamic Terrorism

    Aah, screw it. Maybe we are just fucked as a country once and for all. When you couple this with people actually thinking it's a good idea to give up our sovereignty, it looks mighty bleak for freedom doesn't it?






    Rana Elmir, an American Muslim and deputy director of the ACLU of Michigan, says that she emphatically refuses to condemn jihadist terrorists just because Im Muslim.

    In her provocativearticlein MondaysWashington Post, Elmir claims that she is often asked to condemn Islamic terrorism, to which she replies: I emphatically refuse. https://www.washingtonpost.com/poste...use-im-muslim/

    She then goes on to compare the systematic slaughters wrought under the name of Islamic terrorism with the terror advanced by mostly white men at the alarming rate of one mass killing every two weeks in this country.

    Elmir draws a parallel between the Islamic State and Dylann Storm Roofs attack on parishioners of a historic black church in South Carolina, Robert Dears attack on a Planned Parenthood facility, the murder of 20 children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the slaughter of moviegoers in Colorado or Louisiana.

    I will not be bullied into condemning terror perpetrated by psychopaths who misrepresent and distort Islam for their deranged purposes, she wrote.

    Muslims across the globe are not threats. They are threatened, she wrote.

    As an example of the terror experienced by Muslims, Elmir recounts how an American Muslim woman who wears hijab spoke to me of a paralyzing fear she feels every time she leaves the house. Not exactly having your throat slit, but one can see her point. Sort of.

    Elmir argues that Muslims contribute to our own oppression by erroneously believing that if we just apologize, then the anti-Muslim rhetoric will end.

    Condemnation, she says, becomes our admission of guilt.

    For all their faults, one cannot help but wonder what the response of Christian leaders would be if a renegade sect claiming to be Christian began carrying out atrocities in the name of Jesus. If a so-called Christian Caliphate were to arise, gobbling up territory, demolishing historic monuments, executing non-Christians, raping non-Christian women, and slitting the throats of apostates while citing Gospel texts, would Christians be silent, afraid to denounce such actions carried out in the name of the Prince of Peace?

    Perhaps, but probably not. More likely they would scramble to disassociate themselves from actions that were so egregiously unchristian.

    Would the condemnation of such horrific actions be an admission of guilt? Hardly.

    On November 21, several hundred Muslims came from all over Italy to protest the actions of the Islamic State in a publicmanifestationin Rome, calling ISIS a cancer and insisting that it did not represent the position of Islam.

    The rally took place under the title of Not in My Name as a public refutation of ISIS as representative of the majority of Muslims, while another similar protest was taking place in the northern Italian city of Milan.

    At intervals the protesterschanted, No ISIS, no terrorism. A large banner read: ISIS is a cancer on the body of Islam. What they did is an attack on the entire community.

    It is our duty to assume a clear, non-negotiable position against the promoters of terrorism. Its the duty of every Muslim to condemn violence and terrorism, and in this Muslims must assume their responsibility, announced the secretary general of Romes Great Mosque, Abdellah Redouane.

    This event garnered much needed goodwill toward the Muslim community in Italy, and helped people understand that many Muslims reject the actions of the Islamic State.

    It is unlikely that Rana Elmirs arrogant and misguided rantings will do the same.

    Next time you get on a plane and a person named Makmud Abbir is sitting next to you see if you feel comfortable during your flight. Even if the guy is reading the Sporting News not the Koran. Cracks me up when these guys go right thru security and some 14 year old blond blue eyed kid gets the pad down. All this plays right into the Jihadist plan and they know the west is over correct and one day they will do a nuke. Idiots.

    so this woman says she is not going to condemn Muslim terrorism because of the mass shootings? So she is not condemning the mass shootings either? It's not an either/or proposition!

    and does she not see that being in her position and NOT condemning Islamic terrorism is one of the things that makes those women in hijabs fearful to walk the street?

    certainly if there was a Christian caliphate and the Christian churches did not rush to condemn it, it would be seen as tacit approval

    Terrorism will only be stopped if the Islamic church actively and vigoursly condemns it, teaches its young against it, actively seeks it out and exposes it, and takes action against it.

    So she is terrified of white men and their actions yet she comes to the country designed, built, financed and fought for by predominately white men? There is plenty of desert that will agree with your thinking, get lost.

    My pretty blonde wife seems to always get pulled aside for the pat down...I wonder why.

    Must be the blond hair, blue eyes, and four kids trailing behind her that makes her such an imminent threat.

    The lady above is an idiot. Why the Washington Post would giver her the space for such stupidity though I don't quite get.

    Probably a condensed article. Or she was late for a meeting, just didn't get around to it.

    She's involved with CAIR, which is a terrorist organization masquerading as a non-profit, she'll let her true feelings be known if a mic is put in front of her enough times, or if she continues to get editorial pages.

    I love her straw man argument. Yeah, Islamic terrorism is bad, but as long as there are other people in the world committing evil acts, I won't denounce it. Well, thanks for taking a stand lady.

    I am more prone to believe that she won't denounce it because she agrees with it, but that is just my opinion, no proof.
