NY Daily News A Borough Park man who interrupted a Ramadan prayer service by blaring Hebrew music from a car draped by Israeli flags had his case swiftly dismissed Wednesday with one day of community service and a promise to stay out of trouble for six months. CAIR considering asking the DOJ to review the case.
In a town hall appearance in Muskogee, Republican Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett told the assembled crowd that the expansion of rights for Muslim Americans is no different than the growth of the Nazi Party in Germany before World War II.
Raw Story Bennett argued that there are no distinctions between radical Islamists and everyday Muslims, that all of them are programmed by their faith to attack and destroy Christianity.
“Mohammed’s teaching only teaches one thing,” he told the Muskogee Patriots this week. “And that’s the violence that we’re seeing today in ISIS and in the beheading in September, a 30-year-old employee of Vaughan Foods attacked two women, killing and beheading one of them. The suspect, Alton Nolen, had recently converted to Islam and had reportedly tried to convert coworkers. However, police have not ascribed a religious motive to the murder, which is being prosecuted as an act of workplace violence.
Rep. Bennett, however, sees the attack as evidence of a growing domestic jihad movement in this country.
Audience member Tina Kelley accused Bennett of needlessly fomenting suspicion and fear of Islamic people, citing her friendships with Muslim families. “They don’t like having their government say that they’re no better than ISIS,” Kelley said, “and having their Oklahoma neighbors made afraid of them.”
“Well, let me ask you a question,” Bennett countered. “Where are your nice friends? Why aren’t they here? Why aren’t they out there saying, ‘Hey, we don’t believe in that?’”
He said that Muslims condemn violence against the innocent, but that no one outside the Muslim faith is considered truly innocent by Islamic standards. Muslims, said Bennett, can only be trusted if they fully renounce their faith.
“Do you think every German was a Nazi?” he asked. “No, they weren’t. But what happened with the Nazis was that once they got in power, all those Germans that sat quiet or were scared to say anything had no choice but to follow and support what they were doing.”
“So is every Muslim bad? No,” he said, “but if they subscribe to Islam and what it teaches, and if they’re not standing up and condemning what Islam teaches, then they’re just going right along with them, just like the Germans did when the Nazis were around.”

This past Tuesday, posting on Facebook as Jah’Keem Yisrael, Nolen said “Shalom Alhakeium (O Ye Muslims) Allah (sWt) says in the last days, ‘People will be lovers of themselves, proud and unholy.’ So to all of U that masturbating which I think is 80% of the world and for whatever desire it is in your hear that U doing it for – U can get! (warning) This is the last days … 2nd Timothy 3:2.”
