Ben Carson’s bombshell: Why a Muslim should NOT be president of the US

Ben CarsonRepublican presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson is known for a soft-spoken demeanor, but his statement on Islam in the U.S. was explosive:

A Muslim should not be elected president.

In an interview to air Sunday on “Meet The Press,” host Chuck Todd asked Carson if a candidate’s religious faith should be considered when Americans elect a president.

“I guess it depends on what that faith is,” Carson responded. “If it’s inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter. But if it fits within the realm of America and consistent with the Constitution, no problem.”

Todd followed by asking point blank, “Do you believe that Islam is consistent with the Constitution?”

“No, I don’t, I do not,” Carson said. “I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.”

Carson did say he would consider electing a Muslim to Congress but “it depends on who that Muslim is and what their policies are, just as it depends on what anybody else says, you know.”

He added that he does believe President Obama is a Christian saying he has “no reason to doubt what he says.”

Carson’s critics will no doubt note that similar arguments were made against the Catholic faith of President John F. Kennedy when he ran for president. They might remember, though, that Catholics — acting in the name of Catholicism –weren’t going around beheading people, staging suicide bombing buildings and flying commercial airplanes into buildings.

    FBI statistics show that hate crimes against Muslims, which are never justified, are actually quite uncommon, with hate crimes against Jews being over four times more common. Details here:

    Many women and girls around the world have been brutalized and even killed for not wearing a hijab. A list of some of them, with further links to the relevant news stories, is at this link:

    CAIR and the MSA appear to have been involved in this event. Both were named unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land trial, which involved funneling money to the terror group Hamas. Both have demonstrable ties, documented and noted by the FBI, with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. See, for example, these links:

    This is Islam: “She’s Buried Chest High”.

    Watching a video about Judo and made this comment and decided to save it: You can say what you want about the Japanese. They took a huge loss and turned it into a win. Muslims can’t do that. You can analyze it all you want, especially when it comes to fanaticism, but the bottom line is Muslims are at the bottom of the gene pool and they act accordingly. You can’t point to one place in history or one geographic place on the planet where they aren’t a complete and utter deficit in every way.

    If you want an example of the Muslim “success story”. If you want a perfect illustration of what defines Muslims and Islam, it’s past and its present, and counter the claims that Muslims “promote peace and tolerance” with those outside the Muslim Community, and the claim that “radicals pervert the Koran through omission and false interpretation” read the following:

    Jihad in the Qur’an and Sunnah by Sheikh Abdullâh bin Muhammad bin Humaid.

    I found this in a Summarized Bukhari I’d ordered when I first got interested in this subject and wanted to more about this “religion of peace”. This article was presented in this book as an Introduction. You might want to ask yourself; WHY, out of all the articles, out of all the words of pearly Muslim poetry and wisdom the publishers could have put in this, “the most authentic and true among the books of the Prophet”, this article on JIHAD is the one they chose? And if Islam is the “religion of peace”, where in Sheikh Abdullah bin Humaid’s article on jihad can I find the equivalent of “Love Thy Neighbor” and “good will toward men”?

    By an almost divine coincidence I’d finally sat myself down and waded through Emmet Fox’s book The Sermon on the Mount and finished it almost on the day the Bukhari arrived in the mail. If there is one word I would submit as the one to remember when studying Islam it would be “Compare”. Always compare. Compare Muhammad to Jesus, compare Sheikh Abdullah bin Humaid’s article on Jihad to Emmet Fox’s book Sermon on the Mount and compare the Koran to the Bible. And compare the religion that promotes itself as “the religion of peace” with all the other religions that don’t have to.

    And remember that Islam is the only “religion” on the planet that has a death penalty, (apostasy law), for leaving it. “Narrated Ikrima…for the Prophet said, ‘if somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him’” My Summarized Sahih Al-Bukhari, page 613, #1294.

    Right after you’ve read this, read The 4th Conference of the Academy of Islamic Research: Arab Theologians on Jews and Israel. Sept. 1968. Translated by D.F. Green/David G. Littman. I use Humaid’s article on jihad as “Exhibit A” when it comes to refuting the “religion of peace” claim. “The 4th Conference…” could easily be Exhibit B.

    Here are two articles that also expose the “religion of peace” and Palestinians.

    Hajj Amin Husseini’s Anti-Semitic Legacy by Boris Havel (Middle East Quarterly)

    “The First and Last Enemy: Jew Hatred in Islam.” by Andrew G. Bostom

    What you also have to keep in mind is that CAIR is rabidly anti-Israel and pro Hamas terrorist. Alan Dershowitz is a flaming liberal who advocates for the two state solution but I think he wrote the defining book if you’re still on the fence when it comes to the Israel/Palestinian issue:

    The Case for Israel.

    This is the book that will separate the men from the boys. And just to throw the liberals a bone, Dershowitz quotes Benny Morris frequently in this book. Benny Morris is one of those New Historians who built his career bashing Israel.

    This isn’t a bombshell. It is recognition of the truth. Islam is entirely incompatible with a free society, in how it functions, and what it believes. It is entirely a dictatorial religion.
