Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Troubling Survey of Moslems in America

This survey was filled out by Moslems at the Islamic Society of North America convention. This convention draws about 30,000 attendees yearly. Its members overwhelmingly belong to Saudi-funded, Wahabbi influenced mosques. 307 responded to the survey. This is approximately 1% of attendees at the convention. All the respondents were U.S. citizens. We don't know how many women answered as compared to men.

Though the U.S. has not suffered any major terror attacks inside the U.S. since 9/11, this survey shows that fortunate circumstance does not result from any immunity of U.S. Moslems to jihadist tendencies or sympathies.

1. Are you a U.S. Citizen? (If no, then don’t fill out survey.)
YES 307
NO 0

No fresh immigrants here. Nobody here who plans to leave soon. All these responses come from people who want to live the rest of their lives in the USA, and who want their children and their children's children to live in the USA too. Bear that in mind as you read on.
2. Do you consider yourself to be a Muslim first, an American first, or both equally?
MUSLIM FIRST 214
AMERICAN FIRST 4
BOTH EQUALLY 86
UNDECIDED 3

Over 2/3 are Moslem first, 1/3 are both equally, and essentially none of them are American first. This does not indicate they will be good citizens. They will vote for what is good for them before they vote for what is good for the country. They will certainly not be good representatives. This is something that voters must remember when Moslems run for political office.
3. Is the American government at war with the religion of Islam?
YES 208
NO 79
UNDECIDED 20

Over 2/3 believe the US is at war with the whole religion of Islam. Apparently W's constant refrains of "religion of peace," "religion of peace" aren't being heard in ISNA homes.

I guess that Moslems know that Islam is not a religion of peace, and everybody else has either come to that conclusion or is edging that way. So no matter how many times it is repeated, it is understood to be nonsense and thus ignored.

So if Moslems already believe that the US is at war with Islam, what is the purpose of limiting the war so tightly? If the US is already at war with the whole freaking religion, why not start fighting to win?
4. Can a good Muslim be a good American?
YES 292
NO 11
UNDECIDED 4

What does a "good" Moslem mean by a "good" American, anyway? Given the rest of the answers, I wonder.
5. Did Muslims hijack planes and fly them into buildings on 9/11?
YES 117
NO 139
UNDECIDED 51

Huh?

Either they are stupid, or inveterate conspiracy mongers, or they are takfiris who have expelled, in their own minds, the 19 hijackers of 9/11/2001 from their religion.

It's convenient that all these ex-Moslems were dead before anybody excommunicated them. Why don't they do that to some of the living jihadists in their religion?
6. Did the U.S. government have advance knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, and allow the attacks to occur?
YES 200
NO 70
UNDECIDED 37

Ridiculous.
7. Did the U.S. government organize the 9/11 attacks?
YES 106
NO 151
UNDECIDED 50

I sense confusion in the answers. The answers are not saying what they seem to say. They are based on wishful thinking, not fact.
8. Are the tapes of Osama Bin Laden, claiming responsibility for the 9/11 attacks and threatening future attacks, real or fake?
REAL 126
FAKE 129
UNDECIDED 52

Wishful thinking. "It's too awful to think about. I reject it! Mossad! Jews. Jews. JOOOOOS!"
9. Did Muslims commit the July 2005 train and bus bombings in London?
YES 140
NO 104
UNDECIDED 63

Half think that the 7/7 bombings in Londonistan were committed by Moslems, half don't or don't know. More wishful thinking.
10. The Canadian government says it stopped a plot by Canadian Muslims in June 2006 to attack targets in Canada. Do you believe there was a real plot by Muslims?
YES 61
NO 202
UNDECIDED 44

2/3 say the plot was a frame-up. So now, even Canada, land that is so lily livered it can't even stick with the language of the Queen who is on its currency, is part of the conspiracy against Moslems?
11. The British government says it stopped a plot by British Muslims in August 2006 to bomb planes flying to America. Do you believe there was a real plot by Muslims?
YES 66
NO 191
UNDECIDED 50

So Britain is in on the secret plot too! Wishful thinking.
12. Is Al Qaeda a real organization, operated by Muslims who are trying to attack America?
YES 149
NO 109
UNDECIDED 49

Half say yes, half say no or don't know.

Wishful thinking.
13. Is Al Qaeda attacking America because Al Qaeda hates American freedoms?
YES 17
NO 269
UNDECIDED 21

That's interesting, in the sense of the Chinese curse, "may you live in interesting times." I'd far rather live in boring times, but I don't. I wonder if anybody actually did, ever!

Read the answer to 14, and then look at this again.
14. Is Al Qaeda attacking America because Al Qaeda hates American involvement in the Muslim world?
YES 228
NO 54
UNDECIDED 25

Isn't there something else? Don't they hate baseball and Britney Spears and everything we put on television and in the movie theaters? Is this American involvement in the Moslem world, or just selling stuff that Moslems like?

More wishful thinking.
15. Is it justifiable for the U.S. government to do any of the following in an attempt to prevent terrorist attacks in America:

a. taking religion and ethnicity into account as one factor when deciding whom to interview and search at airports?
YES 37
NO 258
UNDECIDED 12

Wishful thinking. This is almost as unpopular in the survey as entrapping Moslems into committing terrorist acts. It seems that some priorities are messed up.
b. monitoring activities at American mosques?
YES 43
NO 255
UNDECIDED 9

Wishful thinking.
c. listening to phone calls of people in America whom the government claims are connected in some way with Al Qaeda?
YES 64
NO 232
UNDECIDED 11

Wishful thinking.
d. having an informer pretend to support or encourage violence against America, to see if the targeted Muslims will decide to attack American targets?
YES 35
NO 258
UNDECIDED 14

In other words, "are you against entrapment by law enforcement?" Where did this leading question come from?
e. monitoring Muslim charities in America, in the hopes of preventing funding for possible terrorist attacks?
YES 52
NO 242
UNDECIDED 13

They don't see that this could protect their charities from being perverted and ruined by terrorists or other traitors and criminals.
f. focusing Immigration & Customs Enforcement resources on deporting Muslim illegal aliens, who have not been convicted of terrorism, in the hopes of disrupting possible Al Qaeda attacks?
YES 29
NO 263
UNDECIDED 15

What about other illegal aliens? Ship them all out.
g. allowing Muslim illegal aliens to stay in America if they agree to work as informants, monitoring the Muslim community for the government?
YES 21
NO 277
UNDECIDED 9

Bizarre question.
h. torturing suspected Al Qaeda members to get information about possible planned attacks?
YES 14
NO 278
UNDECIDED 15

This is the most unpopular of all. Tell it to Margaret Hassan. And what about known Al Qaeda members, like Adam Gadahn or Osama bin Laden?
16. Do you believe that your local mosque is being monitored by wiretaps, government agents, or informants?
YES 227
NO 59
UNDECIDED 21

Wow! Actual good news in this survey. If they believe it, maybe it will keep them from acting on all the anti-American urges revealed in answers 26 to 30.
17. Do you believe that your personal phone calls are being listened to, or that your personal mail or email is being read, by the U.S. government?
YES 205
NO 78
UNDECIDED 24

Got anything to hide?
18. Do you believe that your home is bugged by the U.S. government?
YES 97
NO 189
UNDECIDED 21

Good grief.
19. Do you believe that the U.S. government has secretly searched your home?
YES 43
NO 245
UNDECIDED 19

Hay caramba!
20. If you, or a member of your family, have been questioned by the federal government at any time after 9/11, how were you treated during the interview?
TREATED WELL 65
TREATED BADLY 25
NOT APPLICABLE 217

So 1 in 3 were investigated and 2/3 of those were treated well. They got off scott free. What's the problem?
21. Should Iran develop nuclear weapons?
YES 161
NO 123
UNDECIDED 23

But of course. How would they pursue their goal of a World Without Zionism and a World Without America if they had no WMDs?

/sarcasm
22. Should America attack Iran to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons?
YES 10
NO 292
UNDECIDED 5

Wrong. America is going to have to fight Iran either way. Why wait until after they have the bomb? Who says that Iran is entitled to an even fight? Besides, no fight against America will ever be fair. American soldiers are far better fighters than anyone else in the world. There is no comparison.
23. Was America justified in invading Iraq in 2003?
YES 8
NO 294
UNDECIDED 5

According to the best information available at the time, the correct answer is "Yes." Oh well, the Coalition didn't find all the expected WMDs, so I suppose we overthrew that murderous dictator and his blood-soaked family for nothing except some thanks from the Kurds. And now we're going to have to whack Moqtada too. At least that'll make the ISNA Wahabbists happy!
24. Should American troops leave Iraq immediately, or stay there until the Iraqi government and Iraqi military are stronger?
LEAVE NOW 199
LEAVE LATER 86
UNDECIDED 22

But of course. 2/3 would have the US cut and run to make room for Al Qaeda, which doesn't exist, to create an Emirate in Anbar. Wahabbists like that idea.
25. Was America justified in invading Afghanistan after 9/11?
YES 51
NO 248
UNDECIDED 8

Wrong answer.
26. Is violence by Muslims against American civilians acceptable, in retaliation for the American government’s actions in the Muslim world?
YES 23
NO 274
UNDECIDED 10

Even 7% is too many. That means 7% of ISNA attendees who answered the survey are willing to murder Americans for no other reason than they are Americans.
27. Is violence by Muslims against the American military overseas acceptable, in retaliation for the American government’s actions in the Muslim world?
YES 134
NO 154
UNDECIDED 19

Classic defensive jihad theory. About 40% support the Jihad overseas against America. That means that America had damn well better monitor hawala and other money transfers, and all Moslem charities. Funding and other support for Jihad must be strangled.
28. Is violence by Muslims against the American military in the U.S. acceptable, in retaliation for the American government’s actions in the Muslim world?
YES 73
NO 211
UNDECIDED 23

About 25% would be in favor of murdering American soldiers at home. They would support it, or volunteer to do it, or cover it up.
29. Is violence by Muslims against American government officials acceptable, in retaliation for the American government’s actions in the Muslim world?
YES 51
NO 231
UNDECIDED 25

20% of those who had an opinion would favor murdering American politicians and government employees, such as policemen and firemen, for the Jihad. Not good. Very bad. Dearborn could burn just like Paris.
30. If you learned about a plot by Muslims to attack targets inside America, would you tell law enforcement authorities?
YES 234
NO 39
UNDECIDED 34

80% to 90% would tell. That's good.

Summing up
Two answers with good news in them. The rest is bad news. Expected. But bad.
