Papa Whiskey just sent us this brief note with yet more evidence of the Demonic Convergence of the goals of Islam with those of the American Left:
In a Dec. 9 appearance at Claremont McKenna college, Zaid Shakir, a prominent Muslim spokesman, declared that:
“… if we are serious as a society about stopping this violence, it doesn’t behoove us to demonize Muslims. … it behooves us to make it far, far, far more difficult for people to get their hands on a gun.”
Be it noted that Zaid Shakir is a black American convert whose original name was Ricky Mitchell. He studied for several years in Egypt, Syria and Morocco. He is a signatory to the “Common Word Between Us and You” document, which, as the Barnabas Fund points out, is “a classical example of Islamic da’wa (mission). It is a call to accept the Muslim concept of the unity of God (tawhid) and therefore to reject the incompatible Christian views of the Trinity and the deity of Christ.” (This, in accordance with Qur’an 3:64.)

His proposal that it be made “far, far, far more difficult for people to get their hands on a gun” is an effort to impose upon Americans the disarmament clause of the Pact of Umar, under which the subjugated Christians of Syria agreed (on pain of slaughter) that, inter alia:
“We shall not mount on saddles, nor shall we gird swords nor bear any kind of arms nor carry them on our persons.”
It should in fact be made “far, far more difficult” for people such as Mitchell/Shakir to practice a religion that infringes on the rights of free men.
