Chicago: Islamic Org Attempts to Curtail Liquor Sales

The day before yesterday, I posted a 16 point plan by The Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago. The plan is an attempt to silence the critics of Islam by scaring us off by using the term “Islamophobia”. Today we learn of another one of  their plans. The one in which they want to try to severely curtail liquor sales in Chicago. Of course they do not care what non-Muslims want.

The Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago has put a grant in place for African-American and Arab Muslims in order to encourage Muslims to stop selling liquor. The Inner City Muslim Action Network has set up a loan program to help fund and provide these guilt-ridden owners with fresh produce and other healthy goods by supporting the bill of Illinois Fresh Food Fund. This bill would serve neighborhoods where grocery outlets are scarce. In turn, the store owners would be surrounded by better company. Executive director of the Inner City Muslim Action Network, Rami Nashashibi said in a World Wide Religious News Report, “These stores became associated with a lot of the most negative and oppressive characteristics you would want to be associated with.”

According to a news report, Chicago has roughly 3,000 Muslim-owned liquor stores. Although alcohol has been deemed haraam or forbidden, many liquor storeowners defend themselves by saying they only promote the products, but do not consume them. Islamic scholar and UC Berkeley professor, Hatem Bazian explained, “The rationalization runs the gamut. Some say, well, I’m not drinking, and so it just says they try to play games with the text. Some would just say, well, I’m not living in an Islamic society. So you can’t hold me to Islamic principles. Third, they say, I am here as an American citizen, and I’m just engaging in business in America.” There are many ways to justify the situation, but either way, the community grows angry.

    The arselifters should calm down and have a few pints of beer instead.

      No, that’ll just make them go crazier! 😉

    Arselifters own 3,000 liquor stores, eh? So not only are they drug pushers (opium from Afghanistan, hashish from Lebanon and Turkey) but they also push alcohol to the kafirs.

      Arselifters love making a buck out of the kafirs. It’s only the “radicals” that might register a complaint.

      Isn’t that the arselifters’ motto?

    OK now THAT does it! Sure, we can accept beheadings, suicide bombings, Jew-hatred and mutilating the private parts of little girls (sarcasm!) but now they WANNA TOUCH OUR BOOZE! NO WAY, RAGS!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, this is just another methodical, incremental step on the Road to Sharia (RTS). It’s a long road, and a dangerous one. Maybe if we were appropriately OUTRAGED with the behadings, suicide bombings, Jew hatred and the mutilating of little girls, we wouldn’t now be in this position.

      Given the previous history of fecal jihad (two known examples in the UK), an sane person shouldn’t buy any foodstuffs from arselifters. Even if they are packaged, you just don’t know if the arselifters have tampered with them.

    Simple, boycott any store owned by them.

    Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor ~ ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter?.
    This one sure does!

    This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how it also applies to the U.S., U.K. And Australia

    THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH

    Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!

    Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady.

    ‘Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since? Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from the nation’s capitol and in a field in Pennsylvania ? Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn’t they?
    And I’m supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.
    I’ll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.
    I’ll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan

    I’ll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg’s head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

    I’ll care when the cowardly so-called ‘insurgents’ in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

    I’ll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

    I’ll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

    In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this: I don’t care.

    When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank: I don’t care.

    When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and ‘fed special food’ that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being ‘mishandled,’ you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts: I don’t care.
    And oh, by the way, I’ve noticed that sometimes it’s spelled ‘Koran’ and other times ‘Quran.’ Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,
    I don’t care!!

    If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends.? Sooner or later, it’ll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!

    If you don’t agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don’t complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add: ‘Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don’t have that problem.’

    I have another quote that I would like to add, AND……..I hope you forward all this.

    Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The British Soldier.
    3. The Canadian Soldier.
    4. The US Soldier, and
    5. The Australian Soldier

    One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.

    YOU MIGHT WANT TO PASS THIS ON, AS MANY SEEM TO FORGET ALL OF THEM.
    AMEN!
