Americans need guns for protection against Shari’a law

The Republicans must oppose gun regulations to protect the country from the threat of “Sharia Law”, that’s what a Texas Congressman told a conservative radio show.

Appearing on The Voice of Freedom last month, Louie Gohmert said he “hoped and prayed” that Congress rejects gun safety legislation, arguing that Americans may need to use the rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to avoid succumbing to Muslims: “[The Second Amendment] is for our protection and the founders’ quotes make that very very clear and including against a government that would run amuck. We’ve got some people who think Sharia Law should be the law of the land, forget the Constitution. But the guns are there… to make sure all of the rest of the Amendments are followed.”

 

Muslims and Hitler alike says teacher

A teacher in Washington has likened Muslims to Nazis, whose children are taught to “kill innocents”.

Her words have prompted America’s largest Muslim advocacy group to calls for investigation into the comments they say encourage bullying against Muslim students.

The unnamed teacher at Concrete Middle School has reportedly compared Muslims to Nazis during a class lesson on bullying in October last year.

The teacher has said that “just like Hitler,” Muslims train their children from birth to give their lives to Allah and are raised to be martyrs. She also said that Muslim children are groomed to “kill innocents.”

The issue came to the surface after a Muslim student complained to Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) about the description. The umbrella Muslim group said the response of the school officials on the incident was “totally inadequate and unresponsive.”

“Our attempts thus far to address the issue with the district have been unsuccessful,” Jennifer Gist, Civil Rights Coordinator at CAIR’s Washington chapter said.
