There is an elephant in America’s kitchen, and it’s growing every day. It’s hard to understand why people keep feeding it. Our government leader’s feed it, our church leaders feed it and the news media, well, they force feed it. The elephant even has a name. Islam.
Islam’s actions are obvious and often, and very destructive to America’s ability to move around its kitchen. In Dearborn, Michigan, known these days as Dearbornastan, a Muslim man has filed suit against Little Caesar’s Pizza. A $100 million dollar suit by the way. Little Caesar’s sin? They delivered a pizza with pepperoni allegedly containing pork, a no-no for Sharia Law adherents. Sharia Law? Yep, this Muslim man is offended. The elephant eats.
Moving from Dearborn, we go east to New York City where a 21-year-old Queens College student, a Pakistani Muslim, called police with a harrowing tale of abduction and a hate crime; they were calling him a racist name and all while branding guns. A terrible experience for anyone. Except, when the NYPD started investigating they discovered it was all a hoax. The student made it all up. The elephant has a snack.
One borough over in Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Tech High School, has a prom coming up. And again, the elephant is hungry. The Muslim students demand concessions. Prom is going to fall during Ramadan, and the Muslims will be fasting. We should note here that there are no concessions for Jewish or Christian students. But, after a meeting the Muslim Student Association, yes, there is one, the Principal agreed they would never again have Prom during Ramadan, and they will not serve food to anyone at the Prom until after 9 PM when the Muslim Fast is over. The elephant scraps up another few bites of America’s freedoms.
Let’s move south to Jacksonville, Florida as many New Yorkers do. Daniel Pipes, writing in the National Review, he cites a plaque he saw in the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. He said he rubbed his eyes in disbelief as he read a plaque on an Islamic exhibit, celebrating the culture of the Ottoman Empire when it took over a renowned church in Istanbul. It read, “In addition to their renowned patronage of architecture, which yielded the conversion of the Church of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul into a congregational mosque… ” It struck Pipes as obscene. Was it the truth?
The Museum’s statement is far from the truth. The elephant was hungry again. As the Ottomans approached Pipes wrote the church was still thronged. The Holy Liturgy was ended, and the service of matins was being sung. At the sound of the tumult outside the huge bronze gates of the building were closed. Inside the congregation prayed for the miracle that alone could save them. They prayed in vain. It was not long before the doors were battered down. The worshippers were trapped. A few of the ancient and infirm were killed on the spot, but most of them were tied …
