Here ya go. America’s freedom of speech has now extended to allowing an Islamic TV Channel in the U.S. to broadcast wahhabi sermons from Mecca. Bridges TV, an American-Islamic TV channel “seeking to improve the image of Muslims in the United States” and to “offer a unique perspective on the Middle East and the war on terrorism,” has extended its availability into six states, creating a potential audience of nearly 2 million. A religious figure who appeared on the channel on Oct. 3 said Muslims have a duty to change America and to increase their numbers to 50% of the population from 2%.
He recommended that Islamic law be implemented in American courts. On Oct. 5, a discussant offered a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict: “For the Jews to leave and return to Europe.” Throughout the day, Bridges TV airs segments of Koranic verses, quite a few of which denounce “unbelievers.”
One notable verse that aired Oct. 9 praised martyrdom. Since the Islamic holy month of Ramadan began, the channel has been showing official, Saudi government-controlled Wahhabi sermons from Mecca, with English subtitles.
My perception of Muslims will change when Muslim’s perceptions of Jews will change. Until then I will continue to wear my badge that says I am a Proud Member of the Apes and Pigs Alliance.
