We all know Islamophobes can be scary but when they band together the results can be terrifying. Here hundreds of them got together to ultimately hurl abuse and intimidate Muslims who were attending a CHARITY dinner (ICNA Relief 2011) at Yorba Linda, CA.
The usual culprits were involved in sponsoring the rally against Muslims; the Tea Party, ACT! For America, Pam Geller, etc.
Islamophobic Hate Comes to Orange County
Chants of “USA”
Erm, since when was a Muslim charity dinner anti-American? NEVER!
I guess these bigots needed something to chant.
Chants of: “Go back home”
Erm, America is their home. There are millions of Muslims in America. In fact, many are converting to Islam. Notable Muslim scholars/speakers are American converts – Hamza Yusuf, Zaid Shakir, Yusuf Estes, Dr Jerald Dirks, Dr Laurence Brown etc.
In any case, America was built upon immigration – Muslim immigrants (and their children) have as much right to call America their home as ANY other America. Do we forget the Native Americans were butchered to make way for the waves of Western migrants?
“Pure unadulterated evil”
Villa Park Council woman (Deborah Pauly) calls it “pure unadulterated evil”. Since when was a CHARITY event "pure evil"? Talk about hysterical!
Oh she does append it with – “I don’t even care if you think I’m crazy”.
Deborah Pauly inciting violence?
Oh, she “knows quite a few marines who will help these terrorists to an early meeting in Paradise”
Talk about whipping a few hundred bigots up into a frenzy of hatred.
Insulting Prophet Muhammad (p)
One bigot shouts “Muhammad is a child molester”, “pervert”.
Sadly, these folk are fed drivel from the internet. The marriage to Aisha (ra) was only consummated when she had reached mental and physical maturity. The Jesus scholar, Geza Vermes, suggests this type of union was in place at the time of Jesus. I guess bigots and scholarship do not go together. Rather than intimidating Muslim women and kids how about this man opened up a few books and checked the minimum age of marriage in his state a couple of hundred years ago.
“Muhammad was a fraud”
The same bigot yells “Muhammad was a fraud” and “false Prophet”. Muhammad had a chance to become the richest man Arabia (a king) but he declined in favour of his message. He performed healings and many other wondrous signs (miracles) whilst calling people to the worship of God. If you are going to call Muhammad a fraud then you are effectively calling Jesus a fraud too – if you are consistent!
Last I checked, frauds don’t perform miracles and call to the worship of the God of Abraham – Muhammad was NO FRAUD.
Try reading something other than drivel from anti-Muslim websites!
"Stupid terrorist, go home..do you beat up you wife…are you a molester"
This woman goes into overdrive with her bigotry. She equates terrorists with Muslims despite there being FBI stats out there telling us Muslims make up less than 10% of terrorists. All terrorists are not Muslims. In fact, Islam forbids terrorism.
As for beating up wives every night– she has been visiting too many hate sites. Sad.
One woman is yelling “cowards”. Erm, since when was it brave to bring a bunch of bigots and intimidate families (including girls and boys) of minorities? Who are the real cowards?
“Sex with a nine year old”
Bigots always bring this up to demonise Muslims. It’s been explained a ton of times. Here is the American scholar, Hamza Yusuf speaking on the topic:
"One nation under God, not Allah"
I’m not kidding, one lady really yelled that!
Allah is God! Check your Arabic Bible and you will see the word for God is Allah. I guess they just don’t educate folk thoroughly in their hate camp.
"Take you Sharia, go home and eat sand"
Eat sand? Sharia? Crikey, talk about all the stereotypes!
Waving American flags
I guess these bigots needed something to wave.
Muhammad and Jesus (p)
