desk of Richard Thompson, TMLC President & Chief Counsel. As I have been saying for over a decade, politicians of both political parties rush to the TV cameras to defend Islam as a “religion of peace” whenever there is a Muslim terrorist attack on American soil. These politicians are nothing more than fools used by Muslim propagandist to lull Americans to sleep while they take over our nation.   It seems to be working with the politicians, but not the American people.

The latest example of a politician playing lapdog to the Muslim propagandists is Philadelphia’s Mayor, Jim Kenney.

Video tape shows a Muslim man, in traditional Muslim garb, later identified as Edward Archer, as he attempts to assassinate Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnet, who was sitting in his patrol car.   Later Archer tells police “I follow Allah. I pledge my allegiance to the Islamic State, and that’s why I did what I did.”

This is what the Philadelphia Mayor told TV audiences just hours after the shooting and Archer’s confession:

In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen.” . . . . “It is abhorrent. It is terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of its teachings.” . . . .  It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.”

Here are just a few of the many verses from the Koran to show how violent Islam really is:

“Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”  Koran 9:5

“So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”   Koran 8:39

“Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.”  Koran 9:29

“Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.”  Koran 8:39 “I shall terrorize the infidels.  So wound their bodies and incapacitate them because they oppose Allah and His Apostle.”   Koran 8:12

“The infidels should not think that they can get away from us.  Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.  They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”   Koran 8:59

This protection of Islam and Muslims in the name of political correctness isn’t just stupid. It’s dangerous. Hiding the truth about Islam, that it is a religion of violence, puts our nation and American lives at risk. Just ask Europe.

Philadelphia is the fifth largest city in America. There are no excuses for the statements made by its Mayor. The jihadist who shot a Philadelphia police officer confessed that his actions were inspired by Islam.

Most politicians have grown so drunk on the Kool-Aid of political correctness that they are willing to risk our national security and our lives to protect Islam and Muslims who would kill us in the name of Allah.
