As I’ve said a gazillion times over the years, Muslims are a one-way street when it comes to tolerance. They don’t tolerate anything from us, but they expect us to tolerate even their most absurd, most intolerant, most violent of behaviors and edicts. New York State Senator Greg Ball learned that the hard way, when he received this monkey marked with anti-Semitic hatred from Muslim Jameela Barnette, a woman who has posted nutty, anti-Semitic, bigoted articles and comments all over the net, including on Facebook and Salon.
Religion of Peace Sends a Message to Public Official
If you or I sent something like this to, say, Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison, we’d be charged with ethnic and religious intimidation and sent to prison. But, when the shoe is on the other foot, well . . . nothing happens:
A suspicious package mailed to state Sen. Greg Ball containing a stuffed Curious George monkey pinned with Stars of David and a vicious, anti-Semitic and racially charged screed left the Republican undaunted, saying he will continue pushing forward with his agenda on national security.
“A threat like this I let law enforcement do their job,” said Ball, R-Carmel, Tuesday night. “Letters that do keep me up at night are from rank-and-file law enforcement and personnel worried about weaknesses in security.”
State police responded at 1:05 p.m. to Ball’s office in Albany’s Legislative Office Building Tuesday where they said they found the package that also contained a vial with an unknown substance. The Albany Fire Department Hazardous Materials team transported the contents to a Department of Health laboratory for analysis, police said. An investigation is ongoing.
The letter signed by Jameela Barnette with kind regards accused Ball, a Catholic, of being a Jew-worshipping, Muslim hater.
“Instead of bashing the intellectually superior Muslims, shouldn’t a handsome, cannibalized crazy, Christian cracker like yourself be in church chomping on Jew-god corpse and washing it down with Jew-god blood under the pretense of ‘Holy Communion,’ ” the letter stated.
The one-page diatribe went on to talk about the Curious George present, saying …”the plush monkey/miniature Jew I have gifted you with is an accurate representation of who the Jews are and what you stupid Christians worship.”
Ball, who chairs the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, said he will press on with homeland security hearings, with one scheduled for May 17.
He called the letter “full of hate” and “illogical” and declined to speculate on whether it had anything to do with the first hearing he held Friday in lower Manhattan “to assess the state of security in New York,” as the state approaches the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
At that hearing, a discussion about Muslims in America and whether a group within that population is working to undermine the U.S. Constitution and replace it with Islamic law turned heated.
Hey, where is the CAIR Action Network condemnation of this?
For the record, one of the causes of controversy was the testimony of Nonie Darwish at Ball’s national security hearing. She is in the same league as other “former Muslim” charlatan con men like stalker Walid Shoebat, Kamal Saleem and Arabic-accented frauds like Hanan Tudor a/k/a “Brigitte Gabriel.” Yup, Darwish is very similar to the rest in this industry they created post-9/11 (while they were nowhere to be seen before that).
In my own experiences with Darwish, I, at first, liked her. But she repeatedly lied to me about the most obvious and basic of things and isn’t to be taken seriously. She is in this for a buck (and only a buck), and she’s made plenty off of her shrieking, but there’s little real knowledge behind it. Just good business sense to con sucker Christians and Jews out of their money, like a carnival act. And in an appearance on Sean Hannity’s FOX News show, she ripped off an exclusive column I wrote in the New York Post about going undercover at a Hezbollah rally and an imam there, entirely without credit, but was still obviously clueless. She pretended she knew something about this, but she didn’t. She just plagiarized me without credit, because that’s what she does. There’s no there there. And that’s why she resorts to things like clowning around in fur coats for silly calendars. Her “Former Muslims United” group is more like “Former Muslims United for Big Bucks.” A total phony. She isn’t about courage. She’s about a solid retirement fund.
Sadly, many gullible elected officials, TV and radio personalities, and other Americans, including State Senator Ball, think that if someone has an Arabic accent and an Arabic name that automatically means they are experts on Islam and Islamic terrorism, and it means no such thing. It would be like saying that someone named David Horowitz is an expert on Judaism. And I could show you hundreds of people with that name who know very little of that. 1.8 billion people are not experts on Islam or Islamic terrorism. And it’s foolish to think otherwise, which is the premise of the whole Darwish/Shoebat/Saleem baloney act.
Also sad is that people like the State Senator think we need Muslims and “former Muslims” to testify on the Islamic threat. Um, I don’t need Ahmadinejad to testify to me on the dangers of Iran and the Ayatollahs. I already know that for myself. My source of knowledge is my own research and education. I don’t need a con man or woman with an Arabic accent to confirm something I know far more about. I also don’t need them as my savior. If you do, you’re ignorant.
