LE... I'm trying to understand the news in this story.
So if I understand, some group was sifting through names of highly qualified Muslims to submit to Obama to be considered for a job in his administration. I say highly qualified since they were all Ivy League grads and Fortune 500 executives.
The white house caught wind of the project and asked to have the names submitted two weeks earlier than planned.
I didn't even know we had a "Congressional Muslim Staffers Association" but that appearently means Muslims on congressional staffs must be common. I assume that because they have an association.
This groups leader named Williams tried to keep this under the radar for fear Obama didn't want to appear to be working with the Muslim American community. Not sure why Williams would assume that since Obama has been openly working with every other community.
This story is a real head scratcher but I assume the Denver Post is a quality paper. I just can't imagine the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association having a guy named Williams as their leader. Seems their leader would be Mohammad or X or something. I also don't know of any Fortune 500 executives who are a strain of Muslim we should fear. Well, actually, I don't know of any Fortune 500 executives who are Muslims.
This is a strange story... :BangHead:
They looked for specifically muslims, isn't this illegal? Thats means for thos ejobs, they are looking to place only muslims, menaing if your anything else but, your not getting the jobs. Discrimination against everyone but his muslim brothers.
Any muslim who beleives the koran is to be feared, since it tells them to kill anyone who does not become muslin. Otherwise they are muslim in name only, and don't really beleive the book they say they do.
I took it to mean Muslims were also considered for jobs which keeps Obama's administration from being illegal since they consider everyone.
Also, it is the extremist "interpretation" of the Quran that encourages them to kill those they declare enemies. And Muslims aren't trying to kill "anyone who does not become muslin", they are anti-US because the US has been anti Muslim. Their real crime was being against Israel which offends the US since Israel is our friends.
Obama didn't initiate this effort. In fact the person who did made it more visible.
"We didn't know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community."
How does this differ from Bush surrounding himself with Christian Reconstructionist nut cases?
Are you really asking what is the difference between surrounding yourself with Moslems and surrounding yourself with Christians?
peace to youraying:
I don't see this as being a case of Obama surrounding himself with Muslims. Having a diverse administration was certainly the objective of both Clinton and Bush. In this case, having Muslims in our government could help defuse the Christian versus Muslim holy war that Bush bought into.
only muslims are looked at for these jobs, means it discrimination against other religious peoples, in favor of his muslim brothers.
apparently they do not beleive the koran then, therefore not actual muslims, but in name only, no real faith
really diverse when only muslims can get the jobs, someone who claims to be christian sure is showing himself to be antichristian.
You are making an assumption, we don't know if only Muslims are being considered for any job and nothing in the article indicates this.
And if a Muslim is the most qualified person, why shouldn't they be selected?
George Bush specifically rejected the idea of a Christian versus Muslim "holy war" and said so very plainly. Good grief! George Bush claimed Muslims would go the heaven!
For you to state that Bush had "bought into" that idea proves you are ignorant of the facts...or....you are deliberately attempting to lie about the facts in order to slander Bush.
peace to youraying:
A few years ago Bush also declared victory in Iraq then said we don't torture...
His Dad was famous for saying "read my lips, no new taxes" just before he raised our taxes.
somepeople seem to think bush is still president it's all they talk about, thats gone, can't we discuss now.
Just another attempt to hijack a thread about Obama. We are used to this MO by now.
Why so secretive, "We didn't know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community." Obama's the guy who promised transparency.
This is a guy speaking about Obama and not Obama saying he wanted anything to be secretive nor has Obama promised on person on this list a job. He was simply given a list of names of eligible American Muslims... I am sure many other minority groups offered similar list...
>Are you really asking what is the difference between surrounding yourself with Moslems and surrounding yourself with Christians?
Between Moslems who want to impose shiria law and Christians who want to impose Levitical law? Not much difference. see Gary North's commentary on Lev on www.freebooks.com
I don't believe your premise, however, I find it very revealing that you see no difference between Levitical law (God inspired & scripture) and shiria law (fallen man inspired & unsalvific).

What makes you so sure?
Sue that's what the article says, I read it...
