Did Islam really build America? (Read Obama's assertion here.)

It's a silly question to ask; of course we're a Muslim nation with a deep Islamic tradition - it should be enough that Barack Obama says Islam built America. But, as everybody knows, the history books were written by Islamophobes.

Many Americans, especially the notoriously ignorant home and private schooled types, actually believe our country was built on a Christian tradition. Nothing could be farther from the truth. A quick tour of American history should put the argument to rest once and for all.

Let's begin with the Muslim pilgrims on the Mayflower in 1620, who left England to seek religious freedom in the New World. On the way, they wrote the Mayflower Compact to institute Sharia Law in the Plymouth colony. The Mayflower Compact famously begins with, "In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent..." and then goes on to explain how they will expand the Caliphate.

In 1630, the great imam, John Hussein Winthrop, wrote "A Model of Muslim Charity," a speech just peppered with quotes from the Qur'an. This is the speech from which we get the famous "Cordova on a Hill" metaphor, signifying what America stands for before the yet unconquered world.

Fast forward to 1639. Muslims settling along the Connecticut River wrote the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, a document widely believed to be America's first constitution. It clearly states in the opening paragraph that their purpose is to "enter into Combination and Confederation together, to maintain and preserve the liberty and purity of Islam as taught by the Prophet (peace be upon him) which we now profess, as also, the discipline of the Mosques, which according to the truth of the said Qur'an is now practiced amongst us..."

Further along in the Orders, it stated that a candidate for governor had to be "always a member of some approved Mosque." There can hardly be any doubt that the founders of our colonies were devout Muslims.

I hardly need mention the Muslims who signed our Declaration of Independence in 1776, when we separated from British rule to form the North American Caliphate which would later have 57 to 61 states. How much clearer could Thomas Mohammed Jefferson have been when he concluded the document with "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of Allah, the Most Merciful, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."

After the Revolution, we wrote the Constitution, which opens with "We, the subjects of the Caliphate..." What's more, the first amendment to the Constitution clearly reads, "Congress shall make laws coercing compliance with Sharia, and prohibiting the free exercise of any of the religions of the infidels; and defining freedom of speech, and of the press; and the right of the people peaceably to assemble to burn private property in protests, and to accept whatever the Grand Mufti decrees for a redress of grievances."

It even contains the interesting phrase: "done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the Sheiks present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of the Blessed Prophet (peace be upon him) one thousand one hundred and eighty seven and of the Independence of the United Sheiks of America the Twelfth..."

There is so much more, so when Barack Obama says we're a Muslim nation, he's only repeating what every other president in our nation's history has already proclaimed: that Muslims indeed built the "very fabric of our nation."

Isn't it time we burned all the history texts and documents that have been corrupted by infidels?

Contact the Muslim Brotherhood's Department of Education in Washington today and demand that they start teaching our children the truth about America's Islamic roots and traditions.


Note from Komissar al-Blogunov:
I don't know who did this, but it's brilliant.

Norman Achmed Rockwell painted his famous Freedom to Quote the Qur'an piece in 1943, after being inspired by Franklin Hussein Roosevelt's Four Fatwas speech. More true history.

Dear Leader Obama needn't have mentioned Islam's foundational influence upon the U.S. Why, thanks to our enlightened re-educational programs .... public school systems, every schoolchild knows the story of the Pilgrimh's voyage to the shores of Massachusetts after leaving behind their beautiful port city of Benghazi.

The New Colossus of Islam
(Inscription from the Grateful Citizens of Kenya)
Like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering sword wielded from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a sword, whose edge
Is sharpened for removing the infidels' heads
Mother of Jihadists. From her mighty hand,
Her Sword bidding obedience to Allah commands
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep ancient lands, your infidel pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your infidel masses yearning to be free.
When Atheists, Christians and Jooze come ashore,
Send them with all other infidels to me, Whose heads by my sword will soon fall to the floor.

Oleg Atbashian is a writer and graphic artist, who came to the US in 1994 from the Ukraine, where he sometimes created agitprop posters for the local Party Committee. During that time, Oleg says he "witnessed the transition of the Republics of the Soviet Union from corrupt socialism to corrupt kleptocracy." In the U.S., he was puzzled by the "level of delusional affectation for all things Left among the 'liberal' intellectual elites who take America's exclusive well-being for granted." hoping to turn the People's Cube into "a nation-wide community web portal of spontaneous political humor and parody for conservatives, libertarians, objectivists, and anyone who supports and celebrates America's freedoms, individual rights, and capitalism."
