‘MUSLIM’ TEA PARTY MOVEMENT? WHAT?

Beware of Muslim infiltrators pretending to share your values but actually wanting to share the sharia!

Tea Party circles in East Tennessee might seem an unlikely environment for launching a Muslim organization. Will Coley, 31, a Tennessee native, Muslim convert and Tea Party activist, is behind a one-person Muslim outreach project to Tea Party conservatives and libertarians that grew into a Facebook group countering ‘Islamophobia’ (justified anti-Muslim sentiment) on the Right.

Illume Magazine  The message: Islam is compatible with an anti-big government or libertarian philosophy. They do not denounce sharia, but defend it within a libertarian framework. ”Our approach is different,” says Coley. “We use principles within sharia like maqasid (primary goals) to show their connection with John Locke’s principles of life, liberty and property.”

Coley, whose group Muslims For Liberty, claims this strategy makes an impact. ”I have noticed everywhere we go it is about the same,” says Coley. “We talk to 50 people. The five to six that pointed the group in an anti-Islam direction still hate us, but the rest start thinking, researching.”

Muslims for Liberty is currently focused on confronting the most vociferous anti Muslim voices in America, like Pam Geller, Zuhdi Jasser, Robert Spencer and others, and demanding that they prove what they claim. Coley says:

“We have people on our staff with knowledge of Islam, knowledge of fiqh, knowledge of Sharia… We want an opportunity to expose these people for the fraud that they are, and show that they are spreading anti Muslim hysteria for profit in our society.“

So far, most of these so called “Sharia experts” have rejected his invitations which he believes is because they know that if they debate anyone with credentials it will expose them as charlatans.

Most notably, in 2011 Coley persuaded the majority of Tea Party organizations in East Tennessee to take a stand against Islamophobia. After speaking with fourteen Tea Party chapters about Muslim beliefs on liberty and sharia (Islamic religious law code), twelve of them agreed to reject anti-Muslim appeals. They even publically supported a petition opposing a proposed “sharia ban” in Tennessee.

The sudden announcement in the press of anti-sharia legislation in the Tennessee House and Senate changed everything.

“[We] changed the format of the Islam Awareness lectures at the library. Since sharia had become the issue, we decided to devote each week to covering a different area or aspect of sharia,” says Coley. “We invited two Tea Party groups. One cursed at me, called me names and said I was Muslim and therefore they had no interest in speaking to me or hearing anything my ‘lying mouth’ had to say. The other invited other Tea Party groups.”

“After the lectures, these Tea Party groups took our information home with them. We offered paper, pens, and wrote notes on the board. Then there was a meeting of all the East Tennessee tea party groups, fourteen in all, and they had a vote. 12/2 was the vote, to abandon attacking Islam as a tactic.”

Terrorism Awareness Campaign

Last week in Seattle, the FBI was running a terrorism awareness campaign, featuring bus ads depicting photos of sixteen of the world’s Most Wanted Terrorists. The Joint Terrorism Task Force launched a publicity campaign for the U.S. Department of State’s Rewards for Justice (RFJ) program. RFJ offers up to $25 million for information that helps stop terrorism.

Muslim groups and the politicians in their pockets actually got the reward ad campaign removed. We must act now. 
The RFJ program has been quite successful: through it, the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security has paid over $125 million to more than 80 people who offered genuine information that led to jihadis being jailed and prevented acts of jihad terror. This program was instrumental in leading to the arrest of jihadist Ramzi Yousef, who is now in prison for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. This program saves lives.

It’s hard to believe that this bothered anyone, but apparently it did. Jeff Siddiqui, the founder of American Muslims of Puget Sound, has claimed that Seattle-area Muslims called him, saying the Most Wanted Terrorists ad campaign made them “concerned for their safety.” He said the ad would be just as bad if the government had posted an ad on buses with the faces of people from a single ethnic group and the caption “the face of murders in the United States.”

Muslim groups wailed and dhimmi Congressman Jim McDermott (D-WA) did their bidding. He wrote to the FBI demanding that they pull the campaign, which he claimed was “offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities” and encouraged “racial and religious profiling.” McDermott claimed that the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list included people of other races and “associations with other religions and causes.” But, he said, “their faces are missing from this campaign.” He said that the ad would “likely only serve to exacerbate the disturbing trend against Middle Eastern, South Asian and Muslim Americans.” What trend? In reality, FBI statistics show that Jews are eight times more likely to be targets of hate crimes than Muslims. And the ad was not unfair: of the FBI’s 32 Most Wanted Terrorists, only two are not Muslims.


So if he wanted the FBI to leave the Muslims off the Most Wanted Terrorists ad, he’d first have to convince Muslims to stop committing terror attacks in the name of Islam. But instead, McDermott and Siddiqui succeeded in getting the FBI to remove the ads.

That’s right: the FBI caved to this Sharia demand (do not offend Muslims). The FBI is putting Americans at risk by submitting to the outrageous demands of Islamic supremacists. It is not the fault of the FBI that the world’s most dangerous terrorists are jihadists. That is the reality. You cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality. Capturing these mass murderers is significantly more important than propping up the fictional narrative of victimhood and the nonsensical hurt feelings. People are being slaughtered every day in jihad attacks.
So we are going to have to do the FBI’s job for them. We’re taking it upon ourselves to alert the public to the nature and magnitude of the terror threat.

 We’re going to run the same ad on Seattle buses. You are going to make it happen.
