Ibrahim the Hypocrite

In an article in the Associated Baptist Press, entitled 'Muslim group decries Baptist leader's claims about Islamic 'takeover' of U.S.,' the following is written:

"Leaders from a prominent American Muslim group have denounced reported comments by the Missouri Baptist Convention's executive director claiming that 'Islam has a strategic plan' to take over the United States. Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, said Nov. 1 that David Clippard's assertions 'are too bizarre to even comment on.'"

I would like to remind Ib about a famous statement he made in the past: "I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future."

American Shaikh Hamza Yusuf said two years ago the following:

"There are times when you have to live like a sheep in order to live in the future like a lion."

And a little more from Mr. Hooper, the rest of that quote: "I'm not going to do anything violent to promote that [an Islamic government in the United States]. I'm going to do it through education."

About the concept of the caliphate, see this January 14, 2006 headline in the Washington Post: "Reunified Islam: Unlikely but Not Entirely Radical," the subheading of which reads "Restoration of Caliphate, Attacked by Bush, Resonates With Mainstream Muslims."

How about CAIR's coming out against the very concept of the caliphate and saying that such an ideal is not in keeping with modern society? Hmmmm?

Was Mr. Hooper "taking the Fifth" when he said that Mr. Clippard's information was unworthy of comment? Labeling a criticism as not worthy of comment leaves a sour taste in the mouths of those who value reasoned discussion. Perhaps there IS no logical rebuttal for Mr. Clippard's assertions.

I note that Mr. Clippard made his remarks at a Baptist convention. Does he not have freedom of religion to make theological remarks at his own denomination's meeting?

Furthermore, rather than the no-comment strategy, perhaps CAIR could go point by point and bring evidence to the contrary of what Mr. Clippard said. According to the article:

Clippard, reached via e-mail Nov. 2, cited multiple sources for the assertions and figures he quoted, including several books and research institutions.

It appears that Dougie's statement "I'll do it through education" is backfiring on him.
