The End - 2000 to 2009

“If it is up to me, we are going to explain that an attack on this homeland of that nature would be followed by an attack on the holy sites in Mecca and Medina,” Tancredo said. “That is the only thing I can think of that might deter somebody from doing what they would otherwise do. If I am wrong, fine, tell me, and I would be happy to do something else. But you had better find a deterrent, or you will find an attack.”

I’m sorry, Mr. Tom Tancredo, but you are wrong. This would increase the number of Muslims who hate America exponentially. It would probably put the World into chaos. I don’t think you, America or the entire world would like worldwide anarchy. I think this guy is crazy or really wants attention. May Allah guide Mr. Tom Tancredo. Ameen!

      It’s interesting because America does not have morale high ground it used to have before they invaded Iraq. Doing that would probably start WW3. I think it’s just rhetoric. Their is no difference between him saying “attack on the holy sites in Mecca and Medina” and Osama saying on one of his videos he plans “to attack America”. The difference lies in the fact that their is no accountiblilty for Tancredo saying such a thing.

      He can say what he wants, but what happens will only happen by the will of Allah. The threat alone has the potential to cause an uproar.

    3. zaki August 3rd, 2007 at 9:33 pm

      He is gonna get shot for saying that.

      “…an attack on the holy sites in Mecca and Medina.”

      …so says a Patriotic American…

      The problem is that Muslims in America are the only people stupid enough to take these words as nothing more than hot air or political rhetoric. If you know Tancredo, and follow his politics, you’ll see that this is not just some kind of empty threat.

      The reality is that a sizeable portion of the body politic in this country would probably agree with Tancredo’s ill-conceived assertion that attacking Islam’s holiest sites could act as a “deterrent” against terrorism.

      he is crazy! but before we get ahead of ourselves we should know that

      “Tom Casey, a deputy spokesman for the State Department, told CNN’s Elise Labott that the congressman’s comments were “reprehensible” and “absolutely crazy.” Tancredo was widely criticized in 2005 for making a similar suggestion.”

    7. HN August 3rd, 2007 at 11:11 pm

      i wouldn’t stress his comments – we all know the biggest fitna this ummah will see is the dajjal – and by our belief the dajjal will not be able to enter madina nor mecca, so if its divinely protected to that degree – thers no reason to stress what this moron said.

    8. ibnmasood August 4th, 2007 at 1:48 am

      i do believe that there will come a time during the end of days that the ka’bah is destroyed or something…am i wrong? i think even some incidences in the past have been cited by ulema as having fulfilled this prophecy.

      am i in left field on this one or is this actually true?

    9. Humairah August 4th, 2007 at 2:57 am

      He’s just sick. Very sick.

    10. haroon August 4th, 2007 at 3:52 am

      i’m kinda impressed that the overwhelming majority of comments on the cnn page were strongly against even suggesting it. i am also surprised that i was surprised by that.

    11. Ayoub August 4th, 2007 at 10:07 am

      Bombing mecca and medina would set the human civilization back 5000 years.

    12. jinnzaman August 4th, 2007 at 10:10 am

      While the Dajjal will not be able to attack Makkah or Madinah because they are divinely protected by two angels with swords, there are narrations from Ibn Kathir’s Signs of the Day of Judgment that indicate that the Ka’ba itself will be attacked and some treasure inside of it will be taken away.

      So its not necessarily correct to infer that the ka’ba itself is immune to attack.

      Here are my thoughts on this imbecile:
      http://jinnzaman.hadithuna.com/america-is-the-real-terrorist/

    13. HN August 4th, 2007 at 10:28 am

      the ka’bah will be destroyed pretty much before the last days after the qur’an has left the earth.

      what i was referring to specifically was the protection of the two most beautiful cities in the world from the biggest fitna known to the history of mankind – a bigger fitna than the mongols, bigger than the US army, marines, navy, etc. so like i said – dont stress it

    14. Sohaib August 4th, 2007 at 3:51 pm

      Assalamwalyakum-warhmatullahi wabarakatuhu…… ….regarding the comments that this republican candidate has made;everyone should know that we muslims need not worry ,much nor should we fear America…we should fear Allah & Him alone; we dont need to fear America….Allah has assured us that till the last day Makkah & Madina will be secure & will be protected by HIM;& regarding the comment the brother had made ear;ier; i would like to tell him that the Kaa’ba wont be destroyed even on the last day; it will be lifted up by Allah wóut it being destroyed…..
      may peace & mercy of Allah-subhana-watála be on all of you…

    15. aysha M August 4th, 2007 at 4:23 pm

      This bloke is SCREAMING for medical attention.

      We don’t have to worry about anything. Allah (swt) will destroy anyone who messes with His House/the Quran.

      yeah, and you’re a real genius. Even though about 30% of americans are hopelessly racist, there are enough smart ones to know that it would be playing right into bin laden’s hands. And I can tell you for a fact it wouldnt happen b/c this guy barely registers nationally. Now go back to twiddling your thumbs and planning world wide sharia law domination you moron.

    17. abu ameerah August 4th, 2007 at 11:26 pm

      “Even though about 30% of americans are hopelessly racist…”

      Yeah…I believe Bush would refer to these people as his “base”.
      Furthermore, if you don’t think that this racist 30% (your number) don’t have some political sway — then you’re even more ignorant than I had previously assumed.

      “…you moron.”

      Who gives a crap about tancredo? You follow this guy? Someone whose around 1% in the polls worries you? If you think mecca is in that much danger, why not set up a tent outside and stand guard with a pea shooter? Stop fearing so much. Jeezes, your parents shouldve let you out more.

      Mr. No body can attack on Makkah/Madinah because these are the centers for all mankind weather they are Muslim, Christian, Jews and Allah(GOD) will safe himself both the places.If some one try to attack on Makkah/ Madinah, Like Abrahma result of him is before us and proof are also available in Makkah.In 18centry a birtish laord Kiches in his speeches said speeches can see in the news papers of 1914&15 to attack on MAKKAH/MADINAH and result when he traveled on Ship louis taina on 1stMay1915 from Newyork to Liverpool on its 202trip on 7th May1915 near Irland A german Uboat fire a Tarpido ship was plunged because an enemy of GOD was on the ship.And an Italian amer msulini was also want to attack on MAKKAH/MADINA after sometime people saw msulini’s deadbody hang for a/week and people of Italy spat on his deadbody. So MrThomas Gerard Tancredo’s Both sets of his grandparents immigrated from Italy.So Mr Tancredo think about your results.

    27. Samina Siddiqui August 5th, 2007 at 8:45 pm

      This is ridiculous. First of all this will only provoke more attacks and will start something that the U.S. will certainly not be able to finish. THe muslim community will become outraged, whether peaceful or extremist and they will be extreme consequences. This man is a complete idiot and will bring more down fall to this country.. and to think as if Bush wasnt bad enough? He can not be elected. But when it comes down to it, no one can do harm to Mekkah or Medinah because they are under the protection of Allah and no idiot like Tom Tancredo can change that.

      you need to relax buddy. First of all, im muslim. Secondly, i didn’t say he’s RIGHT…i said its his RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. He is a douchebag, but he’s ALLOWED to say it. Thats the essence of free speech. If you took that right away, you’d take away many of your own rights. So in essence, yes he’s a bad person to say it, but he is perfectly within his rights. And I’ve heard about this “if one finger gets hurt the whole ummah feels it.” No offense, but how are you even able to type right now? The whole ummah should be on the floor writhing in pain based on whats happening in darfur alone. May allah guide you towards not jumping to conclusions.

    31. Darrin August 6th, 2007 at 10:25 am

      I saw him allude to the same recently on the Iowa Debate… Strangely enough, NO other person on the panel stated that his idea was “Crazy”, why? Anyone who dared to stand on the side of Islam would have been shipped off to Gitmo… :-(

      If you listend carefully, all of the debaters stated similar ideas about democracy… That is, Democracy does not me free and fair elections… Only that the RULE OF LAW (OUR LAW) prevails. They also stated that they believed having elections in Egypt and Palistine were a bad idea because extremists might win. I guess they mean Democracy for US and the Iron Fist for you…:-(, but that was Saddam wasn’t it???

      “I get the feeling I have alot more real world experience than you.”

      …and you know this how? By being a loud mouth on the internet I suppose. Then by all means please share with us, O wise sage! Actually, I get the feeling that when you’re wrong you just try to do a lot of talking to divert attention from the facts. Perhaps its a tactic you learned by watching of Fox News.

      “Someone whose around 1% in the polls worries you?”

      No. It is the fact that a chunk, however small and insignificant you may think it is, of the body politic in this country actually agrees with this guy. Furthermore, all it takes is even the perception that a terror attack is imminent or that America is in some kind of danger — and politicians like Tancredo can easily make political strides.

      Finally, whatever rhetoric that Tancredo and his followers spew is not the problem. The problem is that this kind of rhetoric DOES have an impact on political discourse (even if it is crap on cable news) in this country.

      Okay…so we don’t ever forsee the United States bombing Mecca or Medina…however fringe voters and others who share similar beliefs may ask the next question. So…can America surround these places and simply threaten “terrorists” into putting down their arms? Whatever…

      My point is that Tancredo-style rhetoric isn’t particularly healthy or beneficial for this nation and ultimately can have dangerous consequences (however minimal) if left unchecked.

      BTW…Ann Coulter made similar statement years ago…she is still a favorite guest on Fox News and is still a media darling for her controversial statements. Also, Michelle Malkin recently made the case for internment of Muslims (Yes internment — not much different than what happend to the Japanese during WWII). Her books sold quite well and she is now an regularly appearing guest on Fox as well.

      I realize that these two whack-jobs aren’t legislators — but Tancredo is. Even a political loser like Tancredo can have an impact. Think, for a moment, how far he pushed the issue of Border Security and Immigration. Tancredo was making noise on the issue YEARS before his fellow counterparts and look at where we are now. Bush went on television, after Tancredo and other Congressman made enough noise on the issue, and decided to commit more federal funds and man-power for border security in order to make nice with both sides of the argument. While Bush didn’t do much of what Tancredo hoped would be done … Bush still did something.

      Finally, why is it acceptable for a legistlator like Tancredo to get away with such a statement. Imus mentioned “nappy” and “hos” and the guy gets tossed out on his can in seconds!

      Let us imagine if Congressman Keith Ellison were to utter a similar statement. Let us say, hypothetically speaking of course, that it was involving Israel or the Pope for example. Conservatives, AIPAC, the GOP, whoever, would waste no time in dealing with Ellison and I think there would be a publicized apology and resignation demanded of the Congressman before lunchtime. Ellison’s career would, in effect, be over and he would probably go down in history not as a Muslim elected to Congress — but as a terrorist elected to Congress.

      Feel free to disagree (I’m sure you will) and go on talking trash. However, you seem a bit excited so I’ll simply recommend that you switch to decaf.

      abu ameerah, take it easy. You’re going to have a heart attack. I’m telling you, you need to clean out that orifice of yours, get the sand out. Its making you irritable. There’s no way i’m reading your post b/c its just way too long and idiotic. You accuse me of talking to much (moron) and watching fox news (where did that come from). Is that all you have? Youre tactic of blowing up or suppressing whoever doesn’t agree with you WILL NOT WORK. If a toaster doesn’t work, go ahead, suicide bomb it. But it won’t work afterwards.

    35. Sohaib August 11th, 2007 at 9:05 am

      Salaamwalaykum….i went through abu ameerah’s comment & i fell that he’s totally right in saying that, “such statements can have dangerous consequences if left unchecked”….he has mentioned a hypothetical statement towards the end; but forget hypothetical thomas…your comments seem to leave an impact that peple lik tancredo, salman rushdie, tasleema nasreen etc.. are totally right in what they’re doing…

      the whole comments of abu ameerah is quite significant…thomas, i think you should go through that comment once…my views are the same as his…

    36. Thomas Paine August 11th, 2007 at 2:20 pm

      Sohaib,
      You should stop looking up to abu ameerah so much. He’s trying to paint a picture of me as if i’m some right wing redneck evangelical b/c he has to set up such a straw man in order to knock it down easily. His problem is that he went outside and got some sand stuck in his vagina. Ever since then, he’s been irritable. He needs to take a shower and hopefully he wont be so irritable after.

      Let me ask you a question Sohaib…have you read the Satanic Verses written by Rusdie? Or do you know what’s contained in that book? First answer me that.

      Btw, i’m a liberal and of course i hate coulter and the right wingers and I know more than i care to know about them. However, these people cannot be silenced b/c that’s the concept of free speech once again. You can’t silence those people by saying “you aren’t allowed to say that” or “im gonna blow you up!” b/c they can say “well you can’t give azaan”. And you also have to look at what goes on around the world, how jews for example are portrayed in the egyptian media (very badly). We all have to look at whats going on and say “NO” to the negativities by writing to media outlets, setting up or joining boycotts of sponsors, not buying media (paper or satellite), supporting or campaigning against elected leaders, etc. What’s easy to do is say “i’m gonna kill you if you say something bad about the prophet”…b/c the US can just bomb the crap out of anyone who says that. One must think sometimes and not just act.

    37. Sohaib August 11th, 2007 at 2:50 pm

      Salaamwalaykum…..well, i havent read the book but i know that it contains materials that insult our religion or else British muslims or muslims in any part pf the world are not soo stupid to be against this person for no reason….i dont believe that you’re some right wing redneck evangelica…i agree with your statement of what freedom of right means, but Before all this, we should think what Islam says….

      k forget the freedom of speech….Islam says that if anyone insults our Prophet(PBUH), his punishment should be death..
      http://islamqa.com/index.php?QR=22809&ln=eng

      (check the above address for the information i just mentioned)

      now if someone talks about bombarding our holy places , such people should be stoned to death…

    38. intrigued August 14th, 2007 at 8:14 am

      (sigh)
      i believe this is precisely why men like mr tancredo make such vilifications

      So that few foolish mmuslims become enraged over the slightest of remarks. Creating more havoc and ultimately diminishing any progress the greater muslim population has made in convincing the rest of the world that we are, in truth, people of peace

    39. Majid April 27th, 2008 at 4:07 am

      Mr Tom Tancredo Islam Means Peace. Muslims are not terroist or bombers, they are good to all humanity. These are the five pillars of islam.

      1.1 Shahadah – is the basic creed or tenet of Islam (Submission)

      1.2 Salah – the requirement to pray five times a day at fixed times

      1.3 Zakah – consists of spending a fixed portion of one’s wealth for the benefit of the poor or needy, including slaves, debtors and travellers. A muslim may also donate more as an act of voluntary charity (sadaqah), in order to achieve additional divine reward.

      1.4 Sawm Three types of fasting (Sawm) are recognized by the Qur’an: Ritual fasting fasting as compensation or repentance, and ascetic fasting.

      1.5 Hajj – The Hajj is a pilgrimage that occurs during the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah in the city of Makkah and derives from an ancient Arab practice. Every able-bodied Muslim is obliged to make the pilgrimage to Makkah at least once in their lifetime if they can afford it.[20] When the pilgrim is around ten kilometers from Makkah, he must dress in Ihram clothing, which consists of two white sheets.[21] The main rituals of the Hajj include walking seven times around the Kaaba, touching the Black Stone, traveling seven times between Mount Safa and Mount Marwah, and symbolically stoning the Devil in Mina.[21]

      The pilgrim, or the haji, is honoured in their community. For some, this is an incentive to perform the Hajj. Islamic teachers say that the Hajj should be an expression of devotion to Allah, not a means to gain social standing. The believer should be self-aware and examine their intentions in performing the pilgrimage. This should lead to constant striving for self-improvement.
      respect, selfcontrol, obedient , helping poor, praying, etc

      please read below. Am making you understand what makka and madina means to us all muslims. Its important you undertsand. Makka is protected in all directions. May Allah give you guidence and understanding of islam ameen,

      This early Makkan Surah refers to an event that happened in the year of the birth of our Holy Prophet, say about 570 A.C. Yemen was then under the rule of the Abyssinians (Christians), who had driven out the Jewish Himyarite rulers. Abrahah Ashram was the Abyssinian governor or viceroy. Intoxicated with power and fired by religious fanaticism, he led a big expedition against Makkah, intending to destroy the Ka’bah. He had an elephant or elephants in his train. But his sacrilegious intentions were defeated by a miracle. No defense was offered by the custodians of the Ka’bah as the army was too strong for them. But a shower of stones, thrown by flocks of birds, destroyed the invading army almost to a man. The stones produced sores and pustules on the skin, which spread like a pestilence.

      This verse is written in the qu’ran and please mr Tom Tancredo understand that makka is protected by Allah(god) and its followers. Please study Islam and histroy. what it really means to all muslims. Mr Tom Tancredo may Allah guide you to the stright path ameen.

Every able-bodied Muslim is obliged to make the pilgrimage to Makkah at least once in their lifetime if they can afford it.[20] When the pilgrim is around ten kilometers from Makkah, he must dress in Ihram clothing, which consists of two white sheets.[21] The main rituals of the Hajj include walking seven times around the Kaaba, touching the Black Stone, traveling seven times between Mount Safa and Mount Marwah, and symbolically stoning the Devil in Mina.[21]

      The pilgrim, or the haji, is honoured in their community. For some, this is an incentive to perform the Hajj. Islamic teachers say that the Hajj should be an expression of devotion to Allah, not a means to gain social standing. The believer should be self-aware and examine their intentions in performing the pilgrimage. This should lead to constant striving for self-improvement.

      please read below. Am making you understand what makka and madina means to us all muslims. Its important you undertsand. Makka is protected in all directions. May Allah give you guidence and understanding of islam ameen,

      This early Makkan Surah refers to an event that happened in the year of the birth of our Holy Prophet, say about 570 A.C. Yemen was then under the rule of the Abyssinians (Christians), who had driven out the Jewish Himyarite rulers. Abrahah Ashram was the Abyssinian governor or viceroy. Intoxicated with power and fired by religious fanaticism, he led a big expedition against Makkah, intending to destroy the Ka’bah. He had an elephant or elephants in his train. But his sacrilegious intentions were defeated by a miracle. No defense was offered by the custodians of the Ka’bah as the army was too strong for them. But a shower of stones, thrown by flocks of birds, destroyed the invading army almost to a man. The stones produced sores and pustules on the skin, which spread like a pestilence.

      This verse is written in the qu’ran and please mr Tom Tancredo understand that makka is protected by Allah(god) and its followers. Please study Islam and histroy. what it really means to all muslims. Mr Tom Tancredo may Allah guide you to the stright path ameen.
