Today, not too long ago while running errands, I saw my first fully covered Muslim woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma! Oh, how she stood out being covered from head-to-toe, including her entire face with just a small slit for her eyes. Her outfit was all black and she was in the company of a male Muslim, of course.
Ahmed Bedier, the founder and former director of CAIR's central Florida office, an organization linked to the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas by the federal government, has now surfaced as the new spokesman for a free Muslim-run medical clinic called Crescent Community Clinic.
Other Muslim clinics can be found in Tampa, Ohio, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Baltimore, Northern Virginia, Las Vegas, Buffalo, Cincinnati and California.
Bedier, recently took part in an Islamophobic meeting with Muslim Doudou Diène, the United Nations Special Rapporteur, and relayed how Islamophobia is rampant in Florida. This report, when released, will likely paint America in a very bad light.
Islamists (those who want Islamic rule) are very persistent and very tricky and they will go to any length to gain an advantage in America in order to achieve their goals. They'll just keep needling and pestering till we give in. Like their persistent complaints of mistreatment in America. They will keep on keeping on until we give in - unless Americans start paying more attention to what they are doing and stand up to them.
Offering free services like medical care provided by Muslims only strikes me as concerning. Why are they not working within the larger medical community to do this together? This seems similar to the social services offered by Hamas and Hezbollah in order to win over support and power in parts of the Middle East.
Is it even fair to suggest such a similarity? Maybe it is or maybe it isn't. Time will tell.
In April, I wrote about a group of Muslim physicians who have set up a free clinic in Ohio. And if my instincts are right we will be seeing more free Muslim run clinics pop up in the U.S. over time.
The fact that these clinics are run only by Muslim physicians, who likely belong to the Islamic Medical Association of North America whose first goal is to promote---the propagation of Islam as stated on this cached page from last year, could be one big clue. And that I first read about this on martyrdom-supporter Yusef Qaradawi's Qatar-based Islamonline:
Cairo: Dr. Husam Zarad and nearly 40 other Muslim colleagues are finally having their moment of joy on Wednesday, June 11, opening a free clinic to serve the people of Hernando County in Florida. Crescent Community Clinic in the city of Brooksville for over a year.
The clinic, financed by Muslim doctors from Hernando, will start as of Wednesday offering charge-free medical services to the County residents.
The dream project is modeled after a handful of other free Muslim clinics across the US, including the Red Crescent Clinic in Tampa city and a similar one in central Los Angeles.
For years, he and his colleagues have watched the uninsured in Hernando get underserved in primary health care.
"We've all seen the number of indigent patients increase. That was a big reason for us to finally get this open."
...For example, many of the same people who can't afford medical care can't go to the dentist," Ahmed Bedier, the clinic spokesman, told the San Petersburg Times
In Dayton, Ohio, a group of Muslim physicians are stepping in to help the uninsured by operating a free medical clinic. Great news, right? Well, not so fast.
There's no way to know if this particular group of Muslim physicians actually promote Islamism (eventual Islamic rule) behind the scenes or not. Ohio does have an astute blogger, Patrick Poole, who keeps up on the Islamists in his state so that may help.
Do you think this is too far-fetched to even consider?
Well, for starters, I found the free clinic announcement on a Middle East website, Islamonline. That's always a first clue. The Islamic community worldwide likes to follow Islam's advances in America and usually these article are picked up when there are Islamists involved.
There are a number of physicians who lead terrorist groups. The 2nd in command for al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, is a physician. Mahmoud Zagar (Zahar) co-founder of Hamas is a physician and top Hamas leader in Gaza. He has been responsible for perpetrating a large number of deadly terror attacks against Israel. My God, the Washington Post even published an article by him a few days ago!
Let's not forget the physicians in the UK and their failed bombings in London and Glasgow. All 8 suspects were tied to the British national healthcare system!
An al-Qaeda leader in Iraq boasted before last week’s failed bombings in London and Glasgow that his group was planning to attack British targets and that “those who cure you will kill you”, The Times has learnt.
The warning was delivered to Canon Andrew White, a senior British cleric working in Baghdad, and could be highly significant as the eight Muslims arrested in the wake of the failed plot are all members of the medical profession.
There has been several physicians already convicted in the U.S. for their terrorist dealings. One that comes to mind is Dr. Rafiq Sabir. He was a Boca Raton emergency room physician who was convicted for planning to aid Al-Qaeda terrorists.
You can read a more complete listing of physicians involved with Islamic terrorism that Debbie Schlussel put together here.
See, we do have a crafty Islamic enemy and the way they operate isn't always black and white. They are already within our communities displaying community spirit and unity and presenting a version of Islam that isn't practiced in any Islamic country. But it's important to note not every Muslim is an Islamist. They are many Muslim who just want to practice theological Islam and go about their lives. They separate their religion from the laws that govern our country and communities. It's the Muslim who is working to advance Islam into the schools, the laws, the rules. They are working to do so, ever so slowly, you'd hardly notice what they are doing that we have to watch out for. It's the Muslim whose ultimate goal is to have America become an Islamic state in a few hundred years.
Being vigilant now will help protect your children and their children's future to live in a free America.
The Islamists in America, seek to integrate themselves within the communities in America making themselves indispensable. If we begin to see other free Muslim-run clinics repeated in other cities and communities, I'd be paying attention. These Muslim physicians groups would eventually have some kind of advantage or leverage within each community as time goes by. And that's precisely what Islamists want in America - leverage so they can make changes.
Isn't this how Hezbollah made themselves indispensable in Lebanon? Oh well, pay no attention to me - I'm just thinking out-loud about the worst-case scenario here.
I hope this isn't the case and this announcement is just a good group of Americans helping others.
Dayton Mercy Society, a Muslim group that promotes community service and authentic values of Islam, is opening a free health clinic for the uninsured.
"Our goal is to engage the Muslim community in outreach work and let people know that Muslims are part of this community," said Dr. Esam Alkhawaga, a psychiatrist and Dayton Mercy Society board member. "Most of us (at Dayton Mercy) are physicians and we felt as Muslims this could be the least we could do to give back to America for what they've done for us."
Reach Out, which operates its free clinic and pharmacy on Monday and Wednesday evenings, welcomes the extra help and clinic hours.
"Right now we're in a primary care crisis, where patients are coming straight from the emergency room to our clinic because there are no openings for primary care (at other hospitals and neighborhood clinics) in our area," said Sharon Sherlock, Reach Out's executive director. "It's worse than it's ever been."
Houssein Zorkot, 26, a 3rd year medical student from Dearborn, Michigan, was arrested Saturday night for carrying a AK 47 rifle in a park. The riffle he was carrying was loaded and had been purchased the day before. Dressed in camouflage with his face covered in paint one wonders if he was practicing for some kind of attack. On Tuesday he was arraigned in 19th District Court on multiple felony charges, including carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent — a five-year felony. The FBI has been called into the case largely because of what is on his website, I suspect. Zorkot is a Muslim from Lebanon and it's unclear if is he is in the U.S. legally or not. Watch a WXYZ Video news report of his arrest.
On his website (disabled now) he says he is in support of Lebanon and the resistance which, I think, means Hezbollah.
There is a photo gallery from his recent trip to Lebanon here (until its pulled). Notice the picture of him taken in front of a picture of Hezbollah's leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.
His pro-Hezbollah page is here but could be shut down anytime.
Well, taking this a step further because of curiosity I looked for an association of Muslim physicians in the U.S. and found The Islamic Medical Association of North America. A saved page of their history states a first objective is to propagate Islam! (update 7/8/08: I used a cached page because they've now changed it). And they seek to become leaders guided by Islamic values. What does this mean? Further investigation seems necessary now. Of course, I'm not implying that any Muslim physician in America support terrorist groups but this American association points out their guiding principle: Islam.
