Blame the Jews and Republicans

Richard N. Weltz

More and more Americans across the country are beginning to understand -- and resent -- the totalitarian ideology offered by Islam and the efforts to fulfill its imperative to inflict itself on non-Muslims.  Alarmed by what they see happening in European countries that have experienced a large Muslim immigration and better educated about the nature of Islam through the works of writers such as Andrew Bostom and Robert Spencer, as well as many columnists and bloggers, some Americans are beginning to push back against efforts to spread the influence of Shariah law into our courts and banks.

The New York Times doesn't like it at all. The Gray Lady features smack dab in the middle of its Sunday front page a picture and the beginning of an accusatory article.

The Man Behind the Anti-Shariah Push

By ANDREA ELLIOTT

David Yerushalmi, a little-known lawyer from Brooklyn, has come to exercise a striking influence over American public discourse about Islamic law.

The front page piece is just a starter. Inside, its continuation occupies three-quarters of a page with extended blasts at David Yerushalmi, a Hasidic Jew from Crown Heights and American Thinker contributor, whom the Times seeks to blame for being the "surreptitious" instigator of all this national concern about the dangers of Islam and the multi-culti left that seeks to kow-tow to it.

The Times cites the concerns expressed by a Tennessee state representative and makes the claim that he -- and other Republican politicians nationwide are being pushed to take these positions by one bearded Brooklyn Jew. Between the Jews and the Republicans, strange bedfellows when you think about it, I suppose we control the press and international banking as well.

"Similar warnings," says the paper, "are being issued across the country as Republican presidential candidates, elected officials and activists mobilize against what they describe as the menace of Islamic law in the United States."

And, of course, Americans' concern about Islamic influence over our society is also "the same kind of rhetoric that appears to have influenced Anders Behring Breivik, the suspect in the deadly dual attacks in Norway on July 22. The anti-Shariah campaign, they say, appears to be an end in itself, aimed at keeping Muslims on the margins of American life."

Forget the universities that have been pressured into installing footbaths for the religious demands of Muslim students; forget Harvard's bowing to Muslim demands for gender-separate hours at the gym and swimming pool; forget the refusal of Muslim cabbies at the Minnestota airport to service passengers with dogs or alcohol; forget the establishment of Shariah-compliant investment funds and banking services by our financial infrastructure; and forget all the evidence in plain sight of efforts to inflict Muslim belief and practice on our society -- and others in the Western world. It's all just Jewish and Republican make-believe to the New York Times.

Nothing surprising here, but I thought you ought to know about it.
