The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) public condemnation of ISIS press release is clever propaganda that doesn’t say anything of substance against Islamic Jihadi Doctrine but does threaten every Americans right to free speech.
You will learn how CAIR, Muslim American Society (MAS), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Legal Fund of America, American Muslims For Palestine, Muslim Ummah of North America, and the other USCMO member organizations think the American people are stupid. (see press release at end of this article)
USCMO Lies About The Qur’an
U.S. Council of Muslim Organization (USCMO) are amateur propagandists as they denounce the ‘IS’ Islamic State for the beheading of journalist James Foley.
Oussama Jammal, USCMO Secretary General wrote in their press statement, “It states in the Qur’an (5:32) that the taking of one life is the equivalent of killing of all humankind and the saving of one life is equivalent to the saving of all humankind.” Mr. Jammal is lying by omission because this 5:32 does not apply to those Islam deems as “spreading mischief in the land.” Those who “spread mischief in the land” refers to non-Muslims. Mr. Jammal must think the American people are too stupid to read Qur’an verse 5:32 and the following verse 5:33 which gives the reader full context.
إِنَّمَا جَزَاءُ الَّذِينَ يُحَارِبُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الأَرْضِ فَسَادًا أَنْ يُقَتَّلُوا أَوْ يُصَلَّبُوا أَوْ تُقَطَّعَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَرْجُلُهُمْ مِنْ خِلافٍ أَوْ يُنْفَوْا مِنَ الأَرْضِ ذَلِكَ لَهُمْ خِزْيٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَلَهُمْ فِي الآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ
Qur’an 5:33 states:
“The recompense of those who fight Allah and His messenger, and seek to make corruption in the land, is that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from alternate sides or that they be banished from the land; that is their disgrace in this world and in the Hereafter they will have a great torment.”
Mr. Jammal, do you really think we Americans don’t see what you are trying to do here? You are parading a partial translation of verse 5:32 for American consumption but everyone knows the political Islamists practice 5:33 in the Islamic active kinetic war zones in the Middle East, Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Indonesia, Syria, etc…
If the USCMO would be honest, they would condemn verse 5:33 as an important factor too the continuous bloodlust of the Jihadis around the world.
Having It Both Ways
The USCMO press release says, “condemn ISIS and rejects its ideology and actions…doesn’t speak for 1.5 billion Muslims…and contravenes all aspects and tenets of Islam.”
Here is the rub, most of the groups, in this USCMO alliance, support the terrorist organization Hamas. Hamas, The Muslim Brotherhood, and ISIS are all two sides of the same Islamic terrorist coin according to Arsen Ostrovsky Huffington Post article.
“One need only read Hamas’ own Charter and observe their methods, including using their own children as human shields, while openly professing to Israel “We desire death as you desire life,” to see they are in word and deed made of the same terrorist cloth as ISIS.” Ostrovsky writes.
It doesn’t take any investigative skill to conclude that the USCMO will say and do anything to advance the false narrative implying political Islam in America is harmless.
The USCMO Warns America
The USCMO press release says, “ The USCMO also warns the public to avoid spreading Islamophobia by using the actions of ISIS to characterize and demonize all Muslims, globally and here in the United States.”
First, nobody in their right mind demonizes ‘All’ of anything. It is impossible to know what lies deep in an individuals heart but it is perfectly legitimate and necessary to question the motivations of Islamist political groups like the USCMO.
Mr. Jammal, American people don’t respond well to threats – What exactly are you going to do to us if we say something you don’t like? Are you going to publicly demonize us, have your member group the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) file a bogus lawsuits to try and stop our right to free speech, or will we be officially violating Qur’an verse 5:33 requiring exactly the violent actions you falsely condemn in your press release?
It’s offensive that you, Mr. Jammal and the USCMO, would be so arrogant as to threaten the American people to ‘conform’ to your world view ‘or else’… what Mr. Jammal what do you mean by ‘else’? Every warning has a consequence yet you are too cowardly to say what that is.
Your tactic of intimidation, Mr. Jammal, may work in the Middle East but it won’t work here in the United States of America.
Below is the press release from the US Council of Muslim Organizations:
US Council of Muslim Organizations Condemns Murder of James Foley, Denounces ISIS
(WASHINGTON DC 08/20/2014) — The US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of several leading national and local Muslim organizations, condemns the murder of American journalist James Foley at the hands of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. We offer our deepest condolences to James’ family and pray they will find comfort and solace during this difficult time.
The USCMO roundly condemns this group and rejects its ideology and actions. The terror organization, which is also known by the acronym ISIS, does not speak or act on behalf of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims. In fact, they have killed so many Muslims indiscriminately. Their actions are reprehensible, inhumane and completely contravene all aspects and tenets of Islam.
“We are heartbroken by the brutal death of Mr. Foley,” said Oussama Jammal, USCMO secretary general. “It states in the Qur’an that the taking of one life is the equivalent of killing of all humankind and the saving of one life is equivalent to the saving of all humankind. Islam abhors and rejects the murder, mayhem and terror being spread by this group of criminal individuals.”
The USCMO also warns the public to avoid spreading Islamophobia by using the actions of ISIS to characterize and demonize all Muslims, globally and here in the United States. We agree with the words of James’ mother, Diane, who told the media that, “Jim’s death can bring our country together in a stronger way in the values that Jim held dear. He never wanted us to hate or be bitter.”
Finally, USCMO calls upon our government to increase its efforts to gain the release of another US journalist, Steven Sotloff, who was kidnapped near the Syrian-Turkish border in August 2013.
