Opinion on Muslim Veil Viewed As 'Incitement'

(CNSNews.com) - Is it "incitement" for a television anchor to express his opinion that the Muslim veil shouldn't be worn in the west? An Islamic civil rights group thinks so. Under the heading of "Incitement Watch," the Council on American-Islamic Relations quotes Fox News anchor John Gibson: "Speaking as an American: no Sharia law, no veils. If you're here, be American," Gibson blogged on the Fox News website on Wednesday. "You don't have to conform," Gibson added. You just have to give up the urge to be separate and apart and unwilling to assimilate like the rest of us." John Gibson hosts "The Big Story" on Fox News. CAIR's "incitement watch" appeared as a small blurb in a news brief circulated on Oct. 19.

Who cares what CAIR's view is? I don't. No, it is not incitement. We are a country of laws.....our laws.....American laws. We don't need no stinkin' Sharia law. America embraced the melting pot concept - "E Pluribus Unum"; not the tossed salad concept; not the multiculturalism concept. That is the European way. And, it has not worked out so well for them, has it. The American believes in liberty, capitalism, self determination, individual accountability, small government, and inalienable rights. These were some of the beliefs of our founding fathers. These beliefs have served us well.
