No, there is not “a basis of innocence to Islam”

December 31, 2015

Oday Aboushi is an NFL football player. He was honored by the Obama State Department in 2011 for being a Muslim/American whose athletic abilities contributed … well … to something, I’m not sure what.

This guy had this to say about Donald Trump’s proposal to temporarily stop Muslims from migrating to the U.S. until a reliable vetting process is put in place …

“It’s more alarming that a person is proposing something like this. It’s such a small-minded idea. How can you punish a whole religion based off a few people? If people did that, the world will be doomed. To have a guy like that is alarming. What are his true motives? Imagine what’s next, what’s possible, what else is he willing to step over or on.”


“There’s a basis of innocence to [Islam]. It has a basis in humanity. But the reputation of Muslims is going to get tarnished because of the few individuals that are doing things on their own terms.”

Folks, I’m genuinely sick and tired of Muslims playing the victim all the while their fellow non-Islamic Muslims reek havoc, mayhem and murder in scores of nations around the world. Anyway, I’m not the most articulate guy around and wanted to reply to the absurdness of what Aboushi said. But I ran across a piece over at American Thinker which addresses Mr. Aboushi’s comments in a much better way than I could have …
Muslim football player honored by State Department ‘has a distinctly American story’

Oday Aboushi plays football for the New York Jets and is a Muslim who recently spoke out about Donald Trump’s position on Muslim immigration. Per Yahoo Sports:

“It’s more alarming that a person is proposing something like this,” he says. “It’s such a small-minded idea. How can you punish a whole religion based off a few people? If people did that, the world will be doomed. To have a guy like that is alarming. What are his true motives? Imagine what’s next, what’s possible, what else is he willing to step over or on.”

“It’s more alarming….” More alarming than what? Is it more alarming than a “holy book” that is a totalitarian doctrine that mandates world domination?

“It’s such a small-minded idea.” Actually Trump’s proposal is a large-scale idea based on the need to do everything we can to protect this country from devolving further into a state resembling Europe, which is devolving in the direction of the Caliphate, through immigration as a weapon of jihad.

“How can you punish a whole religion based off a few people?” First, it’s not a question of punishment. It’s a question of national security. Second, the it’s-just-a-few-people argument is bogus and has been debunked many times by many people. The Cliff Notes are: There are so many Muslims in the world that even a relatively small percentage who are violent jihadists amount to a rather large number of folks (= not just “a few”). When you factor in the people who aid and abet terrorists, mosques that preach jihad, Muslims who come down with sudden jihad syndrome, and polls that show that a majority of Muslims support sharia law, it becomes abundantly clear we’re not talking about “a few people.” (But as long as we’re on the subject, it only took “a few people” to bring down the World Trade Center.)

“If people did that, the world would be doomed.” Islamic supremacy is what will doom this world if we don’t protect ourselves against the darkness, death, and destruction that Islam leaves in its wake.

“To have a guy like that is alarming.” If we’re going to talk about guys one finds alarming, one need look no further than Mohammed. So if the topic is “alarming” guys, he would be a good place to start.

“What are his true motives?” This same question can (and should) be applied every minute of every hour of every day with respect to Muslims practicing taqiyya. So when a neatly dressed, well groomed, soft-spoken representative from CAIR (aka the Muslim Brotherhood) comes on the airways to lull listeners into an ever-deeper state of ignorance, let’s ask: What are his true motives?

The same thing applies to Aboushi’s comment: “Imagine what’s next, what’s possible…” How about we imagine what’s next and what’s possible as the Muslim population in this country continues to rise, and with it, more acts of aggression, whether in the form of creeping sharia and/or violent jihad?

After speaking about Trump, Aboushi offered his perspective on Islam, stating: “It’s a very peaceful religion. It’s about helping others, treating people how you want to be treated.”

Really? Aboushi needs to brush up on the Quran because it’s not peaceful and it’s not about treating people how you want to be treated (unless you want to live as a second class citizen or be slaughtered).



Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    When people see their public schools emptied to make room for migrants and they see goat heads for sale in their super markets and they find their homes being taken over and given to strangers from foreign lands — some of which is already happening in some parts of the world — then they might wake up.

    I remember this one woman crying and screaming, “They are taking over our homes! Somebody has to do something to get them away from us.,” —

    Yes, that kind of stuff can come to America too and most likely will.

    I know of 10,000 that somebody is thinking of importing within the year and when the police start refusing to go into certain areas for fear of being attacked and when Christians are attacked and stoned when trying to pass out Christian tracts in some secluded communities —

    Oh yes! It is coming! It is coming like a Tsunami and the whole darned country seems to be asleep and unaware. Yes, the Non-Islamics are doing what they do best, alright — trying to over-populate and dominate the world in the name of their World-Wide Caliphate idea …. and the problem is that most of the people I know seem to be in favor of the idea. If that is somebody’s idea of peace I don’t want anything to do with any of it.
