The choice: Independence or slavery

The choice: Independence or slavery

I have posted this comparison before on Jihad Watch, on earlier Independence Days, but it always bears repeating and keeping in mind, for the nature of the struggle has not changed, and will not change. It is the eternal struggle over whether human beings will live free, or willingly submit to slavery.

I see slaves seeking slavery, and slaves defending slavery, all over the world today. I see people defending oppressors and carrying water for bullies and tyrants. I see freedom fighters being vilified and demonized, often by short-sighted self-seekers who delude themselves into thinking that in doing so they are serving the cause of freedom as well.

In reality, this is what it is all about. You are either fighting for one thing, or the other. It is always useful to check one's daily efforts against this, for if you're not working to advance the cause of one side of this comparison, you're working to advance the other.

1. Freedom of religion, and non-establishment of religion

What we must defend:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." — First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

What we must defend it against:

"Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." — CAIR co-founder and longtime Board Chairman Omar Ahmad (he denies saying it, but the original reporter stands by her story)

"I wouldn't want to create the impression that I wouldn't like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future." — CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper

The Muslim Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” — Mohamed Akram, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” May 22, 1991

2. Freedom of speech

What we must defend:

"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press..." — First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
