Webb gets jihadis' endorsement

Wow...he must be proud. From North Virginiastan:
Muslims in Virginia are poised to play a sizable role in next month’s election, with nearly 60,000 registered Muslim voters in the state, according to a local political organization.

Mukit Hossain, president of the Virginia Muslim Political Action Committee, said his group is working to mobilize voters to get out and vote Democratic. In a Senate race as tight as the one between Democrat Jim Webb and incumbent Republican George Allen, 60,000 voters can be the difference between a win and a loss.

Population estimates show Virginia’s Muslim population at about 300,000. Most reside in Northern Virginia.

“I think we can make sizeable impacts,” Hossain said. “I think we made a difference in the gubernatorial race” between Tim Kaine and Jerry Kilgore. The group supported Kaine, the winner of the race by just more than 113,000 votes.

Hossain said the group does not have a political affiliation and attempts to be nonpartisan. He said the PAC is endorsing Webb and the Democratic House candidates in Northern Virginia based on their views on civil liberties, human rights, immigration, foreign policy, health care and education.
Muslims...lecturing us about human rights? Subjugating women, decapitating infidels, howling when we nab terrorists...and they want to lecture us about human rights?

Yeah, yeah, "they don't ALL do it", right? Of course they don't. However, the overwhelming majority of the Muslim community are quieter than Hillary during intercourse when it comes to pointing out the rogue elements within their religion, and I seem to recall hearing someone about five years ago say that "You're either with us, or you're with the terrorists." The name escapes me.

It is indeed telling that Muslims are mobilizing for the party that they know will wage a "more sensitive" war. Ask France and the UK how that coddling of jihadis is working out for them.
