The Illinois legislature has approved a bill that would give unelected Muslim-Americans a formal voice in state government. If the governor signs the bill, Illinois would be the first state to pass such a law. The measure creates a 21-member advisory council of Muslims to give them influence on state policy.
The governor and legislative leaders would appoint the Muslim council members.
The Chicago Tribune quotes one Islamic leader who’s pushing for the new body and says all governors in America should have an Islamic council.
“Given all that is going on with the misinterpretation about Islam and the interests and concerns of the Muslim-American community, it’s almost obligatory on behalf of a governor of this state and all governors to have such a body,” Chicago lawyer Kareem Irfan said.
Many are asking what they can do to help prevent this or stop this movement. There is a very influential grassroots organization that is taking action against such movements, both politically and locally in the areas of the chapters. See ActforAmerica.org . As citizens, we have the ability and responsibility to stand up for our national freedoms and protect our American constitutional rights.There is still time, but we have to act now Americans. We can’t let our country or politics be taken over by the Muslims. If you give them an inch, they take a mile.
Another action that can be taken, especially if you live in Illinois, is to call your state and local representatives. Request that this new body DOES NOT let in an Islamic Council. They are not for our constitution, and if you’ve been tracking along, they want to turn our country into Saudi Arabia, so to speak. We will resist!
