Poll, Aug 2011
shows that only a small minority of Muslim Americans feel that
CAIR, ISNA or MPAC represent them.
These groups are basically self-appointed.
This makes sense.
Well-integrated Muslim Americans would join mainstream American groups like the Democratic or Republican parties.
Only poorly-integrated Muslim Americans with a chip on their shoulder would join
whining sectarian grievance-mongers like CAIR and ISNA.
Islamist Lobbies' Washington War on Arab and Muslim Liberals, by Essam Abdallah (an Egyptian liberal intellectual), 16 Feb 2012,
"One of the most powerful lobbies in America under the Obama Administration is the Muslim Brotherhood greater lobby
Among leading advisors sympathetic to the Ikhwan is Daliah Mogahed (Mujahid) and her associate, Georgetown Professor John Esposito. Just as shocking, there is also a pro-Iranian lobby that has been influencing US policy towards Iran and Hezbollah".
He says the main opponents of liberal Muslims are
the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR),
the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC),
the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)
and the National Iranian American Committee (NIAC).

American Muslim radical
is typical of the sinister, yet also pathetic, nature of the modern Western jihadi.
Almonte was raised Catholic, converted to Islam,
and somehow got the idea that it is supposed to be violent.

He is both comical and sinister.
He said he wanted to kill non-Muslims
for not worshipping a being called "Allah", who exists only in his head:
"It's already enough that you don't worship Allah, so ... that's a reason for you to die."
In Mar 2011, he pleaded guilty to Islamic terrorism charges (not related to this protest).
He will be sentenced in June 2011, and apparently will get at least 15 years.
13 percent of US Muslims say suicide bombing of civilians can be justified.
5 percent of US Muslims have favourable views of Al Qaeda.

Just as the Irish in Britain were of little use against the IRA,
and just as the "good Germans" were of little use in WW2,
so western Muslims will probably be of little use in this war.
They don't like the jihad, but will make no attempt to fight it,
and have only criticism for those who do.
10 percent of western Muslims will help fight this war.
10 percent will fight for the enemy.
80 percent will sit on the fence, and then, when the war is over,
will be perfectly happy with the allied victory.
Survey of US Muslims, Oct 2012, shows large numbers of American Muslims who hate freedom and agree with sharia:

43 percent disagree that Christian and other non-Muslim proselytisation should be legal.
32 percent say that sharia should be the supreme law of the land in the USA.
12 percent say those who criticise Islam should be executed.
Midwest Lutherans Largely Reject Violence, May 23, 2007 - Parody of our reaction to these polls.
We expect moderate levels of support for violence and terror from the Muslim community,
whereas this would be unthinkable in any other religious group.
"By an almost two-to-one margin, Midwest Lutherans
voiced solid opposition to decapitation, suicide bombing,
and chemical warfare in a new comprehensive survey of their social attitudes.
"If there is one headline here, it's how remarkably moderate the Lutheran community is,"
said Pew director Andrew Kohut of the survey
Kohut pointed to one of the study's key findings that
only 29% of all respondents agreed that "bloody, random violence against infidels"
was "always" or "frequently" justified,
versus 56% who said such violence was "seldom" or "never" justified.
The approval of violence rose slightly among younger Lutherans
and when the hypothetical violence was targeted against Presbyterians,
but still fell well short of a majority."
"Although a majority 87% of respondents agreed that "The world should be brought to submission under global Lutheran conquest and eternal perfect rule," there was a great deal of disagreement on the means to accomplish it.
"Taken as a whole, the results show that Midwest Lutherans
emphatically support a moderate, mainstream path to world domination," said Kohut.
"These folks are well-assimilated into the broad fabric of American society,
and unless you are Presbyterian, there is probably very little here to cause concern.""

Edina Lekovic replies, and absurdly claims that the inclusion of her name
is "a printing mistake",
despite the fact that she contributed to "Al-Talib" many times over a long period
from 1997 to 2002.
The cover of the above 1999 issue
praises jihad, Bin Laden and Khomeini.
In 2001, just after 9/11,
an innocent, well-meaning American, Patricia Morris,
organises a vigil outside Anwar Al-Awlaki's mosque in Virginia to defend it.
She is unaware that some of the 9/11 hijackers were actually linked to the mosque,
and that Al-Awlaki himself was probably involved in 9/11.
No wonder he's smiling!
Later, Al-Awlaki was killed by a drone strike.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists:
I love debate.
I love ideas.
But the Western left
and their friends the Islamic right
do not return the favour.
Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022:
I am on Twitter at
Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016.
You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas.
Starting in 2016,
Twitter became increasingly broken.
It became full of reporting and bans and censorship.
In 2019, Twitter even started
for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed.
By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.
Twitter is saved, 2022:
bought Twitter and started to end the censorship.
It looks great so far.
Twitter seems to be saved.
