The "John Doe Manifesto"

Those readers who hail from, or like to keep an eye on, the USA, will almost certainly have come across the "non-flying Imams" controversy. Essentially, a group of six Imams were thrown off a plane in Minnesota, after behaving in a deeply suspicious manner (shouting "Allah" as they boarded the plane, arranging themselves in a pattern similar to that used by the 9/11 highjackers, asking for seat-belt extenders, and then not using them, etc). Various "civil rights" groups, such as the terrorist-supporting Council on American-Islamic Relations swiftly got involved, and legal action is now underway against US Airways and the Metropolitan Airports Commission. Bad enough. But the Imams and their friends escalated matters considerably this week by threatening legal action against passengers who raised the alarm (nicknamed "John Does" in America). The House of Representatives yesterday took steps towards preventing these latter lawsuits, which is of course good news.

Meanwhile, American conservative commentator, and leftist hate-figure, Michelle Malkin, wrote this piece, which I found via Jihad Watch. It is centred around what Mrs Malkin calls the "John Doe Manifesto", which should be an inspiration to all those who oppose Islam. Like Jihad Watch, I take the liberty of reproducing it in full:

Dear Muslim Terrorist Plotter/Planner/Funder/Enabler/Apologist,

You do not know me. But I am on the lookout for you. You are my enemy. And I am yours.

I am John Doe.

I am traveling on your plane. I am riding on your train. I am at your bus stop. I am on your street. I am in your subway car. I am on your lift.

I am your neighbor. I am your customer. I am your classmate. I am your boss.

I am John Doe.

I will never forget the example of the passengers of United Airlines Flight 93 who refused to sit back on 9/11 and let themselves be murdered in the name of Islam without a fight.

I will never forget the passengers and crew members who tackled al Qaeda shoe-bomber Richard Reid on American Airlines Flight 63 before he had a chance to blow up the plane over the Atlantic Ocean.

I will never forget the alertness of actor James Woods, who notified a stewardess that several Arab men sitting in his first-class cabin on an August 2001 flight were behaving strangely. The men turned out to be 9/11 hijackers on a test run.

I will act when homeland security officials ask me to "report suspicious activity."

I will embrace my local police department's admonition: "If you see something, say something."

I am John Doe.

I will protest your Jew-hating, America-bashing "scholars."

I will petition against your hate-mongering mosque leaders.

I will raise my voice against your subjugation of women and religious minorities.

I will challenge your attempts to indoctrinate my children in our schools.

I will combat your violent propaganda on the Internet.

I am John Doe.

I will support law enforcement initiatives to spy on your operatives, cut off your funding and disrupt your murderous conspiracies.

I will oppose all attempts to undermine our borders and immigration laws.

I will resist the imposition of sharia principles and sharia law in my taxi cab, my restaurant, my community pool, the halls of Congress, our national monuments, the radio and television airwaves, and all public spaces.

I will not be censored in the name of tolerance.

I will not be cowed by your Beltway lobbying groups in moderates' clothing. I will not cringe when you shriek about "profiling" or "Islamophobia."

I will put my family's safety above sensitivity. I will put my country above multiculturalism.

I will not submit to your will. I will not be intimidated.

I am John Doe.
