Councilwoman: Violence is What Islam is all About

It is very well known that most of our politicians do not have the courage to speak the truth about Islam. But the list of those that do is slowly growing, and more are on the way. We are finally heading in the right direction my friends! Keep on speaking out!

Councilwoman accused of racist Muslim comment

Sid Garcia
(KABC) — A diverse group of Antelope Valley religious and political leaders are asking for Lancaster City Councilwoman Sherry Marquez, to apologize for what she wrote on her Facebook page about Muslims.

“Why this is of such great concern is that it isn’t something that was said to somebody or was overheard on an open microphone. It is because it went on the World Wide Web,” said Valerie Elliott of the Antelope Valley Interfaith Council.

A portion of what Marquez wrote on her Facebook page after reading a story about a Buffalo New York man accused of beheading his wife reads, “This is what the Muslim religion is all about. The beheadings, honor killings are just the beginning of what is to come in the U.S.A. We are told this is a small majority of Muslims in America, but it is truly what they are all about.”

“We need her apology to come from the heart, and that comes with education,” said Kamal Al-Khatib of the American Islamic Institute of A.V.

Marquez has her supporters. She was elected to the Lancaster City Council in 2008.

“Maybe she shouldn’t have commented on what she said. Maybe it was taken out of context.” said Ron Spears, a Lancaster resident. “It is just Facebook, and I’m sure she doesn’t want to offend any people. The more that I read about her, I’m sure she does not hate Muslim people in general.”

Marquez denied requests for interviews by Eyewitness News. Instead, she referred to a statement she read at a Tuesday night city council meeting.

“My reaction to that has now affected those and the city and to you. I apologize. I was, Saturday morning, and am still very disturbed every time I read about these horrific crimes against women and young girls. I will continue to voice my opinion and speak out about it,” she stated at the meeting.

While one group says that they’ll continue to ask Marquez to apologize to the Antelope Valley’s religious community, they have convinced the councilwoman to remove the statements from her Facebook page.

    Good for her!! Americans should not have to worry about offending those that want nothing more than to destroy our country. They came here of their own volition and are more than welcome to LEAVE on the same camel they rode in on if they don't like it –

    Mayor Marquez scores a bulls eye!

    Other than Muslims, immigrants generally come to assimilate and become Americans, not to forcefully change us or murder us or bring in a third world violent religion.

    The only way the rare politicians numbers would grow is when they find out that there is overwhelming support from the general public for their position. Right now muslims and the leftist media lead the public by their propaganda. They play upon our sense of fairness and our sensitivity towards accusations of racism. As if this vile cult is a race!

      You're right. We need to reach out to her to show her support, even give her more infomration about Islam if she is just "waking up" now.

    This guy is a wuss. I don't understand how anyone paying even a little attention to world events can doubt what she said is true.

    I'm sorry she apologized and removed her comments from Facebook. We've got to stop apologizing to muslims for stating the obvious about their ideology and we've got to stop caving in to their demands.

    When you take a real good look at it, PC=Pure Bullshit. What evr happened to "Say wht you mean and mean what you say"? Think! If everybody acted that way, we'd have much les misunderstanding in this world, and everyone would be on the same page. And frankly, why make any bones about it? Islam is insane and incredibly violent. The only way to address islam is head-on with as much, or more, purpose as they do. To me, it's the only way. They've proven that sane conversation and appeasement doesn't work. That only encourages them.

    Muslims jump on when something like this happens. They love to play the victim on cases such as this. We can come to blogs and web sites and say whatever we want..saywhat we feel is true….an nothing will ever reach muslim ears. BUT..if you area a celebrated person…and you say soemthing against Islam…WAM!! They love to be victimized and it makes the news.
    First off..we should get this councilwomans e-mail address and send her all the suport we can.
    Send a battery of great job wishes!! supply her with all the support we can muster.
    This is how islam shuts down our Freedom of Speech..play the vicitm…and unfortunatly, the majority of Americans are clueless and they say…"Oh don't upset those poor, poor muslims…they are humans after all"
    This makes me sick.
    If Americans only knew, what WE know about Islam.

    Let's roll, people. Let's stop Muslims from shutting us up about their barbarian ways, … about the greatest human rights abuses occurring right before our eyes to millions, MILLIONS, of women on a daily basis. Where is the moral outrage? When S. Africans were being segregated there was world outcry and boycotting and intense pressure! Why do we look away when MILLIONS of women are daily being treated like second class citizens, being beaten, being honor killed, being denied education, being segregated, being kept in their homes like prisoners, being forced to live in sexual harems, being married off at ages as young as nine years old?

    It takes courage to stand up to the detractors, many of whom are Americans who have succumbed to pc and the multicultural myth. Do not let them shut you up!

    Americans should worry about what's going on regarding islam in their own country. And it's not "what is to come in the USA"; it's about WHAT'S ALREADY THERE:

    Absolutely SusanCue, that is why we are trying to stand up for Sherry Marquez and what she said on her Facebook page.

    Yes, anyone who is listening and aware knows that there are Muslim guerilla training camps in our country. We just hope that the FBI is monitoring ever burp they make.

    A recent frightening story reported that all the men in Islamberg, NY had suddenly disappeared, reportedly for Yemen and Afghanistan to train and return to the USA to commit terrorist attacks. Any of these men from Islamberg trying to gain reentry into the US should be denied.

    It's reassuring to know there are sites out there like Logan's Warning and people like you and I who are wise to this evil threat and are not willing to cower and let them silence us. I believe we are reaching a critical mass.

    What they are doing with Sherry is their modus operandi. They try and shame you and make you recant the truth about their religion and their terrorist activities and their conquest of the Western world.

    This is how they silence us. CAIR and other Islamic orgs can do this because they have the platform. Thats why we have to support ACT 4America and other anti-radical Islamic groups.
    We can't let these people shut down our freedom of speech.
    I am hoping for the day we hear a politian finally speak up and say.."Screw you! I'll say whatever I wish, and you aren't going to stop me."
    We need leaders with balls.

    Yes, BBJ, Australia's Prime Minister John Howard had the backbone to stand up to them. I'm not sure if that aided his defeat in 2007?

    The only one here I see standing up and willing to say enough is Newt Gingrich. As an Independent, the first time in my life that I have chosen that political designation, I am hoping the Republican Party gets it right, picks the right person. And Newt is high on my list.

    It's amazing how proactive Muslims are. I mean of all the religious groups in CA, you don't hear Jews, or Buddhists or Hindus or Sikhs or even athiests or agnostics complaining about Mayor Parris' comments? Granted, I think ours is a secular gov't. and religion should not be a factor in any city's state of the city address, but Muslims would not balk had he said we are growing an Islamic community and would have fought for their right to say so. Where was it I read, maybe here, that the schools in Dearborn-istan, MI are closed for Muslim holidays??? Holy shit! WTF?

      Muslims are never going to stop pushing, and if we do not end their immigration evenutally we will lose.

      In the end fighthing them over there, and allowing them to setup shop over here is pretty pointless,

    Yes, the nerve of Mr. AlKhatib, he not only wants an apology, but he wants it to come from the heart! Makes me laugh.

    On another note, now Mayor R. Rex Parris, also of Lancaster County!, is being asked to apologize for saying Lancaster County is a growing "Christian" community. He was accused of promoting Christianity and CAIR is going to file a complaint with the Justice Dept.

    You know if everybody was a LOT LESS busier waiting for someone else to say it. It would not get done. No everyone is waiting for “YOU SAY IT FIRST”. Got your own air “JUST SAY IT”. You need your women to say Sharia law is crap. . . Laws that allow people to hurt people for no reason are crap. I said it for you? You are that brave??? Now through them out of your barn.
    I think it goes “ASSIMILATE THIS ,MOTHER”!

    Why do we all hates Islam and Muslim? Or are we all anti-Buddha, anti-Jewish, anti-Hindus, anti-Christian and whatever religions in the world too if we don’t understand it? Do you hates your girlfriends or boyfriends if you don’t understand them or you think they’re taking over your lifestyles? The history books clearly spell out that we, the European are the ones that invades and kills all other religion believers & races (real human being) from Asians, Chinese, Indian, Arabs, African, Indonesian, American’s Red Indians etc. Until now we the European and USAs determined the world law and you are afraid of something not real? You must be a clown.

      Don’t come here and post baseless comments. Prove I do not understand Islam. Those other religions are not on worldwide campaigns threatening to force a barbaric set of religious laws on all. Muslims have been persecuting and slaughtering non-Muslims for 1400 years. The Islamic conquests of Egypt and Persia are two examples. The Hindu Kush is another. Muslims across the West are openly calling for Sharia. So save the there is no threat falsehood for another site. It does not fly here.

I could care less what they think and will insult them when they deserve it and keep trying to educate people on Facebook and in real life about the dangers and depravity of islam. If they don;t like it let them go back to their desert hell holes.
