Muslim newspaper endorses Ron Paul in Michigan

This is big because from what I understand, the Muslims take voting seriously and in Michigan the Muslim population is about 500,000

Muslim newspaper endorses Ron Paul in Michigan
The Muslim Observer endorsed Congressman Ron Paul in the Michigan Republican primary.
Tuesday, January 15, 2008
By Martin Barillas S

The Muslim Observer, a newspaper based in Michigan, came down on the side of the presidential candidacy of Republican Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. "The Muslim community in Michigan has a unique opportunity to beat the pundits by voting as a block for Ron Paul as the Republican candidate".

The newspaper added "Ron Paul meets the Muslim community's major concern about War in Iraq - an issue that every media outlet has ignored in the primary political campaign in Michigan. To the Muslim community, it is the source of major problems in America - security, jobs, education, healthcare, etc.; and the world peace. The Republican candidate who voted NO against War in Iraq, is against the Patriot Act and is in favor of bringing the troops back home - deserves our full support in the Michigan Primary".

The Democratic primary in Michigan allows voters to choose only Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, while the Republican primary allows voters to choose from a variety of candidates, including Congressman Paul, Governor Mitt Romney, Governor Mike Huckabee, and Senator John McCain.

The Muslim Observer opined to its readers, "The Muslim community must very honestly understand that the system of governance in this country follows in the same general direction, irrespective of who is in leadership. With Democrats, the paths may be less treacherous than if the Republicans are in power, but are leading in the same direction! Unless the system gets an overhaul, there will be very little change in the way whole system operates in this country".

Urging its Muslim readers to get out an vote in Michigan January 15th primary, The Muslim Observor said "The Muslim community's failure to recognize the importance of primary elections and their vital role in the overall elections process will mean that this year, as usual, a small minority of voters will make decisions for everyone else and the outcome most likely will not be pleasant for the American Muslims. Let's beat the odds, let's vote."

Wow

If these votes aren't Diebolded away, he's got a real shot. But I hold no hope for anything less than fraud.

Muslim Observer evaluates candidates

Very important article - recommends Ron Paul to voters -
here is the original

You just know...

that all of the other Candidates will at some time try to, in one small snide remark or another, use this against the good Doctor. Now, just who are the "isolationists" again? Who continues to spread hate and discontent amongst ALL Americans? It ain't RP, I'll tell you that!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...

Now that Muslims are backing Paul

Shouldn't the people who berated him for having undesirable supporters now be praising him for his ethnically and religiously diverse support?

I won't hold my breath. ;)

that would be *too consistent*

for the other GOP candidates!

They need to keep on their path of double standards....

Good Point!

.

Some hare complain about MSM

Some hare complain about MSM only to repeat what MSM has been telling them and brain washing them for years. Any vote for Ron Paul is a good vote. Muslims, Jews, Christians and atheists are all Americans. Therefore, they are all encouraged to vote for Ron Paul. Stop the BS. Ignore MSM.

Glad to see

my fellow Muslims are on the ball!

I'm still working on my circle of Muslim friends / acquaintances. So far, it seems they want the Dems in power. arrgh!

I hope I can get them to see how Ron Paul would be the most perfect President of America -- for ALL individuals!

Great article

Great thanks for posting

We need to reach out to more Muslim community

They can actually control their destiny(ours too) by get out and vote for Ron Paul.

how to get more help in the movement

The Ron Paul crowd was very hesitant to involve the Arab and Muslim community because of what neocons might think. That is too bad because you could have gotten a lot more volunteers that way. It's not too late in the states that haven't had primaries yet. The Muslims are not fooled by media lies because the same people lie about them all the time. They would like to end the wars ASAP and are conservative voters. If there is a mosque near your home you should leave some flyers there.

Great News..

I really think this is great news, seeing how every other GOP is pretty much preaching genocide against the Muslim people, I am really happy to see that they Muslim community recognizes Ron Paul.. I truly feel he's the ONLY GOP that is actually looking forward to peace

The Rest of the Neocon candidates say nothing but terrible things about the Muslim people. The way they preach against the Muslim people is much in the same way that you hear the racist guy often say" Well you know not all black people are bad but....(insert racist comment here)..

Well on a massive scale I believe that is what has been done to the Muslim people, they are vilified and then after the rhetoric you get the tiny tiny (well they aren't all bad.. People like Huckabee and Romney scare me because I believe that THEY are actually for some type of Holy war against the Muslims and they would let their whacko religious perceptions actually dictate the war and the future..

I truly feel Ron Paul is the only man to really want to bring people together and to have peace. So I am happy to hear this news and I truly hope that he kicks every GOP ass in this primary. I salute thee Michigan Muslims and may you all go out and vote en Masse for Dr. Paul!!!!!!!!!!

If half of the population would vote for RP

this will be a whopping 150,000 votes! I hope they withstand the frigid temperatures to get out and vote for RP. Sorry, stats show 300,000.

It is Great News!

It was nice to read their assessment. Balanced, logical and realistic. I would also imagine that readers of "The Muslim Observer" are probably better versed in foreign affairs than the average american...likely due to family ties elswhere in the world. Dr. Paul's message is popular worldwide... Freedom lovers from around the world are flocking to these sites to read about freedom and hope. What other candidate has demonstrated that appeal? Remember, our Revolution is about unity in the cause for Individual Liberty, Our challenge is to push it past the tipping point fast enough to get the Republican Nomination. To the Muslim Observer and its readership... .Thank you for seeing the truth..... Welcome... and oh yeah Vote for Ron Paul!

if they actually get out and vote

They really could change a lot of smirks from the racist elites, McRomney... I really hope they do it!

The democrats are trying to get them to vote "uncommitted" as an anti-Hillary vote. I think a real Anti-War vote for Paul is better!

no blowback from this

let's stop thinking along the same lines as a mccain, guiliani, romney, huckabee, thompson, et al supporter would - muslims in america DO NOT = terrorists. muslim citizens are just that - citizens. with voice and a right to vote for true democracy, liberty and freedom in this country.

if anything, their support and the reasons for their support put greater emphasis on ron paul's position on the iraq war and u.s. military bases worldwide. but more importantly, it spotlights his courage to speak with conviction in the face of gop opposition. i dare any of the democrat candidates to have the balls to say what rp has. and my guess is, if any of the dems had the same message, the muslim community would have endorsed that candidate instead of rp.

I think this flier is from Michigan this is funny

these guys were handing out this flier I like it I found it somewhere 4 mths ago

Ron Paul is the only

Ron Paul is the only politician to look at Muslims at home and abroad empathetically. The most other politicians suggest is tolerance if not outright hatred.

yes, and we have to

get that message out to Muslims, to the mosques etc
(I'm overseas, can't help with that)

The rest of the GOP is going to lose lots of votes

for making those muslim jokes during the debates. Not wise. You can't say you are sensitive to the Muslim community and then turn around and make burka jokes.

Yeah I don't wanna trade they only want to trade burkas

The "Funny" Part of That Joke

...is that if all the Middle Eastern people had to trade was burkas, we wouldn't have such a huge military and economic interest in the region, now would we?

Current political climate?

Is that where we are in this country? Millions of Muslims Americans can't express themselves politcally for fear of "blowback"? I've even seen RP supporters willing to throw Muslims under the bus. Disgusting...
