Coming soon to a state near you.  The California Assembly has designated August Muslim Appreciation Month.  Here is the text of the resolution:

 

WHEREAS, Freedom of religion holds distinction as a cherished right and a foundational value upon which the laws and ethics of the United States are based; and

WHEREAS, Enriched by the unparalleled diversity of its residents, the State of California takes great pride in supporting individual religious freedoms and is strengthened by the many varied religious, political, and cultural traditions of its diverse population, including those Americans who practice Islam; and

WHEREAS, The history of Islam in this country dates back to before its founding, originating with African slaves who brought their Muslim beliefs with them to the Americas and who later contributed in numerous ways to the founding of the nation, and there are today millions of Muslim Americans, both immigrant and native-born, of diverse backgrounds and beliefs; and

WHEREAS, The United States benefits greatly from the expertise, patriotism, and humanitarianism of Muslim Americans, who represent 10 percent of America’s physicians, helping to heal hundreds of thousands of Americans each year; who have long distinguished themselves as courageous and dedicated members of the United States Armed Forces, fighting and sacrificing in every major war from the American Revolutionary War to present-day conflicts; and who regularly contribute to the health and vitality of their communities, giving food to the hungry, sheltering the needy, and providing inexpensive or free health services, among other community services; and

WHEREAS, The earliest Muslim immigrants to California mostly worked on farms and made significant contributions to early agricultural efforts, and since the abolition of the national quota on immigration in 1965 by the passage of the Hart-Celler Act, more and more Muslims have migrated to California, with approximately one million Muslim Americans currently residing in communities throughout the state, the highest number in the United States; and

WHEREAS, Similarly, there are currently more than 240 mosques in California, more than any other state in the nation, and the people of California and the greater United States benefit from the several large Muslim religious, educational, charitable, advocacy, and empowerment organizations that operate within the state, as well as from the countless prominent Muslim community leaders who distinguish themselves professionally as business owners, law professionals, doctors, engineers, teachers, and farmers, among numerous other valued professions; and

WHEREAS, Although the majority of Muslim Americans within California and throughout the nation strive to promote peace and understanding between all faiths, identities, and nationalities while upholding those values and principles that define the American people, they have nonetheless been forced to endure harassment, assault, and discrimination since the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, and during the year 2015 alone, there were approximately 174 reported incidents of anti-Muslim violence and vandalism in the United States. It is therefore appropriate to acknowledge and promote awareness of the myriad invaluable contributions of Muslim Americans in California and across the country, and extend to them the respect and camaraderie every American deserves; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, That the Assembly joins communities throughout the State of California in recognizing the month of August 2016 as Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month, respectfully acknowledges the rich history and guiding virtues of Muslim Americans, and commends Muslim communities in California for the lasting positive impact they have made, and continue to make, toward the advancement of the state and the nation; and be it further

Resolved, That the Chief Clerk of the Assembly transmit copies of this resolution to the author for appropriate distribution.

I await with eager anticipation the California Assembly passing similar resolutions honoring Catholics, Evangelicals, Protestants, Orthodox Jews, etc.  The Democrats who control California have flourished by playing to the grievances of special interest groups and perfecting the black art of Identity Politics.  They view Muslims as just another put upon minority group that can  deliver votes reliably come election day, hence this resolution.  They would sooner eat ground glass than to admit the danger posed by Islamic terrorism and that the broader Islamic community has a significant minority that supports the terrorists.  If the rest of us would not be along for the ride, I would love for these fools to have an opportunity to live life as a non-Muslim in an Islamic state.

Muslim Americans should be treated as Americans, no more and no less, but we should never allow politics to blind us to the forces roiling the Islamic world and the deadly manifestations of this turmoil that have killed so many innocent Americans.

  1. only 50?
    Muslim Americans should be watched by the FBI until the war with islam is over and the west has won. Of course, this will never happen, so we need to have them under surveillance forever.

  2. California, formerly Alto California, first established by Fray Junipero Serra, has had its history $%&* on by the California Asembly. This same Assembly insists that Catholic institutions pay for abortions in their health care coverage.

    It is not a Christian thing to do to wish ill on people, but California’s politics have it on a path straight to hell and I don’t want to be anywhere around when they meet their reckoning.

  3. Bill Quirk is an airhead who came from the Hayward City Council. People like him and the other legislators who voted for this have no knowledge of the history of Islam and its so called prophet. They have no knowledge (nor do they want any) of how Islam was spread by the sword from the Arabian peninsula outward. They are useful idiots.
