On the YouTube comment page, the presentation came in for some praise:
- Big thumbs up
- I hope this gets some good airtime
- It gave me goosebumps and I have tears in my eyes
- Nice video but shouldn't have had to been made. I can't believe it's 2010 and we're still dealing with such base bigotry
There was at least one that suggested the message should have gone much father than it did:
"What brought Europe out of the dark ages? Renaissance. Who helped Renaissance take place? Islamic Spain, Islamic Portugal, Islamic Italy and Islamic Balkins."
But there also was some pointed criticism:
- Now let's see one where the Muslim's (sic) say that they respect other religions and that they recognized their right to exist
- Stop the radicals in your faith and then we might believe you
- If all Muslims were like this, there would not be the problems we have now. Problem is … they're not. For a few peaceful Muslims like this (sic) ones, there are hundreds who cause riots and anti-Semitism in other countries
- Newsflash: 2 Muslims arrested for suspected terrorist plot in Detroit. Who was saying what again?"
- They hate us and want to kill us
- I've seen how Muslims treat Christians and Jews in the countries that Muslims dominate. It's not a pretty picture
The criticisms actually line up closely with what some of the experts have been concluding.
Mosab Hassan Yousesf, the son of a Hamas co-founder and former terrorist himself, cited the issue of the mosque near Ground Zero in New York as an example.
The desire to build an Islamic worship center on such ground basically is the same desire as held by those who hijacked the plans that plowed into the World Trade Center nine years ago, he said.
"If they (Muslims) can establish (global rule) in a peaceful manner, that's fine," Mosab Hassan Yousef says of the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood. "But they are required by the Quran to establish this global Islamic state on the rubble of every civilization, every constitution, every government."
Yousef became a Christian and a spy for Israel. Granted asylum in America after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security tried to deport him, Yousef knows the many forms jihad can manifest. The author of the acclaimed "Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices," served as a consultant to the Holy Land Foundation terror-finance trial.
The 2008 Dallas trial, the largest terror-finance case in U.S. history, revealed intricacies of the Brotherhood's "100-year plan." Its crux: undermining American institutions, eroding Western civilization and establishing an environment for Islam to reign supreme over all religions. Integral to success were spin-offs whose true intents hid behind smiley faces – chiefly the Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations. (In that trial, CAIR and some of its leaders were confirmed by the Justice Department as unindicted co-conspirators.)
On the strength of a six-month undercover penetration of CAIR, the best-selling WND Books exposé "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America" revealed in harrowing detail just how duplicitous a front CAIR puts up.
At the Holy Land Foundation trial, the FBI presented a transcript from a wiretap of a 1993 meeting in Philadelphia in which Hamas supporters sought to establish Muslim organizations in the U.S. "whose Islamic hue is not very conspicuous."
Thousands of pages of documents recovered in the "Muslim Mafia" investigation confirmed CAIR's coziness with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. And CAIR, never denying the book's findings, sued the investigators to recover the documents. But WND attorneys proved in court that from a legal perspective, CAIR actually doesn't even exist, following a name change to deflect negative publicity from the trial.
Yousef worked alongside his father, Sheik Hassan Yousef, in the West Bank city of al-Ghaniya near Ramallah while secretly embracing the Christian faith and serving as a Shin Bet spy. Since publicly declaring his faith in August 2008, he has been condemned by an al-Qaida-affiliated group and disowned by his family.
Describing Islam more as a subversive system than a traditional religion, Yousef advises resisting its advances.
"Even if it's a religion, and 1.5 billion people around the world believe in it, this doesn't mean that they are right; and this doesn't mean that we compromise with them," he said. "We tell them, 'You're accepted, but guess what? This is the red line: We don't compromise with your god. We don't compromise with your belief system.'"
Unfortunately, he says, American foreign policy under President Obama is capitulating and buying "the lie of Muslim groups who are trying to make Islam look good in the eyes of Westerners." This posture gives Muslims "the courage to come forward with a very aggressive symbol" in the Manhattan mosque.
