Since Myrick's plan defends America, what does that reveal about those who oppose it?

This article raises three troubling points. First, why would a truly moderate Muslim object to anything in Representative Myrick's plan? Second, why does this piece's author regurgitate uncritically jihadist propaganda?

Most disturbingly, why is it necessary -- nearly seven years after 9/11 -- for a lone member of the House of Representatives to propose such common sense actions in defense of Western Civilization? Why have not President Bush and the Department of Homeland Obfuscation made such a plan redundant sometime during the last half-decade?

Instead of securing our borders, expelling jihadists and their sympathizers, and holding up to public ridicule the will of Allah and the example of Mohammed as recorded in Qur'an, ahadith collections, and Sira, the President and his fellow dhimmis hold iftar dinners, equate Allah's perversions with the words of Christ, and ban the use of the word "jihad" to describe jihad.

"Reporters" like this not only allow the President and his cronies to continue in such laziness (treason?), they also promote Islamic inanity.

There is little time left for non-Muslims to awake from their slumber.
"A spokesman for a Charlotte-area Islamic group Monday accused U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick of leading a 'fear campaign' with her proposal to curb the expansion of radical Islam.

Myrick, a Charlotte Republican, proposed a 10-point 'Wake Up America' plan this month that, among other things, calls for investigations into the selection of the Pentagon's Arabic translators and some Muslim military and prison chaplains.

"Myrick's latest attempt at fighting terrorism is nothing more than a fear campaign," said Jibril Hough, a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Charlotte. "It is nothing more than a new McCarthyism, or Myrickism. As Muslims, we have become expendable as politicians like Myrick seek political gain."

Myrick said she wants the group to give a point-by-point rebuttal of her plan.

"I'd be glad to have a dialogue with them," she said. "The whole point is that we're trying to get people to work together."

Myrick's proposal has also drawn criticism from the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. One of her proposals was to investigate the group's nonprofit status.

Joining Hough at a Monday news conference was Ross Overby, a Democrat hoping to challenge Myrick in the 9th District.

"There is no duty more important than securing our country," Overby said. "I believe we build our security when we focus on intelligence and engage the world, including Muslim communities here at home and abroad."

Hough said Overby's primary challenger, Harry Taylor, declined to participate in the news conference."
