What Do American Islamists Think About Our Election?
A revealing comment by the leader of the San Diego chapter of the Saudi-funded radical front group calling itself the “Muslim Student Association:” MSA Chapter Official: Don’t Vote; Destroy.
In the final days of the 2008 Presidential election season – with just 6 days now remaining until voters cast their ballots – both campaigns are carefully maneuvering to gain an edge, while still others are singularly focused on just “getting out the vote.” Regardless of the outcome desired by these activists, there seems to be one unified message across the American political spectrum these days: Participate in our democratic system.
However, one college’s Muslim student organization has sought to air a completely different message regarding the election: that of the Islamists.
A student named Farhad Akbari posted an essay on the internal Yahoo! Group of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) at San Diego Mesa College on October 14. In his post, “The Issue of Voting,” Akbari delves into the election, warning his fellow group members of the fate in store for those who cast a ballot for “a person who fights Islam, governs contrary to Islam, and is himself a kafir [infidel or unbeliever] … ” Akbari does not reserve this treatment for any specific candidate. Rather, he holds both major party candidates in equal regard.
Continuing in his reproach of American democracy, Akbari writes:“Whether you vote for the white kafir or the half-black kafir, they will kill our brothers and sisters. They will subjugate our brothers and sisters. And they will certainly support Israel in killing our brothers and sisters. There is no ”lesser of two evils“ here. They are both greater evils. The lesser evil is avoiding the situation, as both are equally poisonous to the cause of Islam … Brothers and sisters, I have one thing to say: DON”T [sic] VOTE.”
