Muslims Protest Charlotte Radio Talk Show Host – Charlotte.com
At a Wednesday news conference, Jibril Hough of the Charlotte-based Islamic Political Party of America charged that Katz speaks mockingly about Muslims and showcases only critics of Islam on his 3-6 p.m. show at 1110 AM.
“His agenda has been one of inciting fear, hatred and ignorance against Muslims,” said Hough, who is also spokesman for the Islamic Center of Charlotte. “His type of rhetoric would not be allowed against any other minority community …”
Asked for specifics, Hough said Katz sarcastically refers to Islam as “the religion of peace”; distorts passages in the Koran, the Muslims’ sacred book; calls Muslims who disagree with him “apologists for terrorists”; and refuses to let Hough and other Muslims speak on his show.
“I’ve been looking for the reasonable, moderate, sensible voice of Islam that says, `Stop killing in our name,’ ” said Katz, who came to Charlotte in August from San Francisco radio. “There are one billion Muslims in the world. I don’t for a second think there are one billion terrorists … But (radical Islamic) groups have cowed people — including practicing Muslims — into not speaking out.”
Good luck, Jeff! I think you will be looking for a long time.
Bill Would Block Credit Cards For Illegals – Commercial Appeal.com
U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., introduced legislation Monday that would prevent illegal immigrants from receiving credit cards from American financial institutions.
The Photo Identification Security Act would require banks to use what Blackburn calls “secure forms of identification” to obtain credit. In a statement put out by her office, she says that Bank of America “has come under fire in response to reports that it allows illegal immigrants access to credit cards without proper documentation.”
Bank of America spokesmen maintain that they follow the letter of the law in permitting customers to use the forms of identification permissible under the U.S.A. Patriot Act. That includes matricula consular cards issued by the Mexican government.
Yeah, you know this lame blame-shifting excuse that BofA has claiming they “comply with the USA Patriot Act” is just a bunch of crap. As for me, I cut up my BofA credit card and sent the pieces in the mail today with my final payment to them.
