Behold, The Leftist-Like Tolerance Of Islam: Texas Imam Forced To Resign For Backing Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’

Zero Tolerance: Texas Imam Forced To Resign For Backing Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’; Says He’s Not Alone – BizPac Review

What happened to a Texas imam proved once again that Islam is an intolerant religion – even in secular matters.

Either toe the line or you’re out.

Dr. Nidal Alsayyed, religious director of the Islamic Society of Triplex in Beaumont, Texas, announced Monday that he supported Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call for a temporary ban on Muslim refugees entering the United States.

“We American Muslims need to be sincere to our religion and to the country we are living in,” he told local station 12 News Now. “Peace comes before religion.”

He reiterated his position on national TV Wednesday night.

The following day, Alsayyed was out.

“Don’t get me involved in any political games in the name of religion. I am not here a political man,” he told KDFM News.

Yet, it was his political opinion that caused him to lose his position as imam.

“Sadly, it’s Clinton versus Trump,” he said.

“I think any future candidates, presidents who do not support the fact that we need to be more safe and more cautious about whom to bring into this country, whether a Muslim or not,” Dr. Alsayyed said.

He insisted his comments had everything to do with peace and safety and nothing to do with politics, adding that Trump’s comments are in line with the Islamic religion.

“The text of the holy Qur’an says the loss of one life is equivalent to killing the whole mankind,” he said.

The mass shooting in San Bernardino by Islamic terrorists helped to gel his opinion on the matter.

“But the way it happens when you see this mass shooting and you see some people coming with such a very peaceful background and all of the sudden the intelligences themselves, the agencies are not able to figure out what’s happening, why all of a sudden this guy or this girl or that lady open fire and kill 15 people, because American Muslims are not doing their job in the country. So we need to stop, we need to stop taking new ones until we fix the existing situation,” Alsayyed said.

He soon discovered that he wasn’t the only local imam to lose his position over politics.

“I came to know this morning from some close contacts and friends over 102 Imams, religious people in Houston, were fired and forced to basically leave their jobs, leave their mosques only because they did not get along with the political agenda for their board members,” he said.

Alsayyed told the station he accepted the position in order to help young people understand Islam.

Your Blog of the Day

Is Pundit & Pundette! A truly outstanding blog, that features dead on target posts like this one!

George Zornick at Think Progress has his boxers in a wad:

Republican Allen West is the Tea Party candidate for House in Florida’s 22nd district, a seat currently held by Rep. Ron Klein (D). West is an extremely successful fundraiser — he raked in the most money of any GOP challenger in the second fundraising quarter of 2010 — and has become a favorite among conservatives, earning the endorsement of Sarah Palin and receiving over two million hits on YouTube for a speech he delivered to a Florida Tea Party gathering.

Last week, video surfaced of West making a series of inflammatory statements about Islam during a March 8 pubic forum. He began by criticizing the ubiquitous “Coexist” bumper stickers, which display the symbols of Christianity, Judaism, Islam and other religions. West said:

“[A]s I was driving up here today, I saw that bumper sticker that absolutely incenses me. It’s not the Obama bumper sticker. But it’s the bumper sticker that says, ‘Co-exist.’ And it has all the little religious symbols on it. And the reason why I get upset, and every time I see one of those bumper stickers, I look at the person inside that is driving. Because that person represents something that would give away our country. Would give away who we are, our rights and freedoms and liberties because they are afraid to stand up and confront that which is the antithesis, anathema of who we are. The liberties that we want to enjoy.”

I don’t see a problem with West’s remarks on the ‘Co-exist’ bumper sticker. Islam isn’t compatible with the freedoms that we hold dear. Does the ‘co-exist’ crowd believe that Muslim taxi drivers have the right to refuse rides to disabled people with service dogs? And if so, do they equally support ER nurses who refuse to participate in abortions because of their religious convictions or do they sniff that the nurses should find another profession while insisting that the religious beliefs of the taxi drivers should be respected? What is the ‘co-exist’ position on gay marriage? Do they think that Christians who believe that marriage is between a man and a woman are homophobic bigots while ignoring that homosexuality is punishable by death under Islam?

coexistence is only possible if all sides respect each other’s beliefs. I don’t respect a religion that calls for the mutilation of little girls, honor killing or stoning. None of those things is compatible with American ideals of liberty or justice. The co-exist crowd believes in selective capitulation. That, as far as I am concerned, is moral cowardliness.

Absolutely PERFECT analysis by Jill there! Tolerance is so addictive to the Left that they willingly overlook the real faults with much of Islam. You cannot, play tolerance with intoleants!
